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." Look it up,
; and see for yourself.

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.
