If every oyster had Its pearl, pearls would be, at this season, cheaper than glass beads or resolutions of respect. To the freight companies, Christmas loesn't mean so much at least not Just at Chajstnias time. Indeed, there is a posl- ive slump In business during the holidays. They have done their part earlier In the season, when stocks were replenished In ho stores and shops. Few presents nre sent by freight, (ilft-glvlng Is supposed to be conllned to a single, particular day, and ho man who has ever tried freighting knows that single, particular days are noi o be relied upon in that business.

Frequently birds, cats and dogs are sent as gifts. Il freight they might be fossils before they reached their destinations and the recipl- nts. Hut most of all It Is the messenger com- iany that profits by the Christmas boom. Tho day prior to last Christmas the thlrty- flvo boys employed by one company an swered 2,800 calls. This is not an estimate. I is the record on tho company's books and the busy young woman In the sweater an show the entry In the bank book as further proof. The calls were all answered between it o'clock one morning and 2 o'clock the morning following. All the money paid for the service is not shown on the bank book, however, as It was a memorable day for tipping. Tho boys were tipped until they literally bent over with the weight f their wealth. In the ofllce the night be fore had been stored hundreds and hundreds of bundles which had been left there to be delivered at certain designated hours. TIiobo to go at 1 o'clock were In one pile; thoso to go at 2 o'clock In another, and bo Any left over from 1 o clock and I o'clock were dollvered together at 3 o'clock, after the fashion of the man In the vaude ville Joko who was out of remedy No. 9 and so took Nos. 4 and &. Every messenger boy knew the plan because he knew the Joke. Indeed ho would be a very slow mes senger boy if he didn't know that Joke, be cause It's older than his father. Hut every thing goes at Christmas time! Especially Jokes. And money! Money goes easier then than at any other time, and the mes senger boy knows that better than anybody. lie knows, too, that wherever he goes ne wUl be received more kindly than ordl uarily. It is a noteworthy fact that people who growl and grumble at the lad ordinarily havo nothing but pleasant words for him al Christmas time especially when he Is com ing to them with a packugo instead of going from them with one. The boys have strange burdens at such times. Last year the wheeling was gooa and they could carry almost anything. And that's what they did carry. Boxes of candy were more numerous than all the other thlnira combined, but among the other things were plenty of boxes of tlowers, plenty of sleds, plenty of dolls, plenty of chlnaware and even such things as baby buggies (two of them sent to bachelors by .... . , a ti . , 1 an alleged joKerj, gas stoves, a pair ui mi- glan hares, a suit of clothes and a corset, The boys knew it was a corset because one of them accidentally stepped on the box and the woman cashier screamed. A woman has Just three kinds of screams One she uses when she Is kissed without warning, one when she sees a mouse with a warning, and one when a corset box Is crushed. The average messenger boy early learns to detect between the three and at Christmas time be gets .to hear all three kinds with rather more than ordinary fre quency. The transfer wagons carry what the boys cannot and their deliveries mount high into the tons for a single day. Usually they have to help the delivery crews of the big stores, as these delivery crews working early and late are still unable to keep up with the demands of the time. It Isn't In human power and horse strength to do so, But to tell all that is hauled would be to give an invoice of a department store and the Invoice of an Omaha department store is much too long to print.
