I Christmas Packages. The Post Office Department au thorizes the following. It is essential that ' Christmas i p ackages for American soldiers in France be mailed not later than ' November IS in order to insure , their delivery on Christmas morn ; ing '.. ! Arrangements have been made tor prompt delivery to the soldiers on Christmas morning. In furtherance of this, Postmas- t er General Burleson, jointly with the Secretary of War and the Sec r etary of the Navy, have issued the following notice to the public: The time is approaching to give thought to bringing Christmas cheer to the American soldiers and sailors abroad. Arangemenls have been perfect ed whereby the Christmas mail to the American expeditionary forces in Europe is to be delivered by Christmas morning Without the fulle&lcooperation on the part of the public it will be impossible to accomplish this result. The three essential respects in which the public can aid in assur ing a happy Christmas at the front are mail early, address intelligently, and pack securely. For this reason it is urgently requested that all per sons having Christmas mail for the soldiers and sailors and the civilian units attached to the Army in Europe observe closely the fallow ing directions: Mails to reach the soldiers in France by Christmas morning must be posted not later than Novem ber 15. Every package must bear con spicuously the words "Christmas mail,'' the complete address of the person for whom it is intended and iu the upper left-hand corner the name and address of the sender. Every parcel must be so packed and wrapped as to admit of easy inspection by the postmaster. No parcel will be dispatched to France which has not the postmaster's cer tificate that it contains no prohibit ed articles. The time of sailing of transports and regular liners, the examination of parcels oo this side so as to ob viate their having to be examined by censors, and the uncertainty of land transportation on the other side bas to be allowed for It is essential alsd that the packages should contain nothing that is un mailable under the parcel-post reg ulation of this countrv: and that the ' parcels shall be securely wrapped, but may be readilv opened by the postmaster to detetmiue the char acter of their contents. Measures have been taken to have packages received in France, which are marked tor Christmas de livery, delivered on Christmas morn ing. Parcels so marked will be held at convenient stations for delivery on that day. This will insure a real Christmas to our boys in France if parcels ere mailed here promptly, and prevent the Christ mas character of the parcels being destroyed by too early delivery. The rate of postage oi parcels to members of the American expedi tionary forces in France is 12 cents per pound from any place within the United States. Most people, when they hear a young girl spoken of as a "chicken" Daturally think the expression is j slang, and pretty raw slang at that. But it is not if Webster's unabridg ' ed dictionary can be taken as an j ihority. The second definition of i the word in that bcok is as follows: ' "A "young person; especially a young j woman; a maiden." The following quotation Irom Swift is also added: , "Stella is no chicken."

The submarine menace is not ended but it certainly bas been greatly lessened in recent weeks For four consecutive weeks the number of boats and tonnage sunk by the Kaiser's U boats has been much less than during any week prior to that time since February 1, when the threat of unrestricted submarine warfare went into effect. The sinkings of the last week are the smallest of the three, indicating increasing effectiveness in the meth ods employed for combating that lawless system of sea warfare. In the meantime the construction of new shipping is going on with in creasing expedition and it is prac tically assured that the attempt "to bring Great Britain to its knees" by shutting off its fond supplies is doomed to fail.
