only available means of

Sunday, however, when
these business and indus

idling over a late break
fast, that some of the
greatest heroes of the
storm were valiently going
about their duty in spite
of icy winds and driving
snows. The newspaper
carrier boys are not much
concerned with city trans
portation tie-ups. They
do their work afoot any
way, and they are expect
ed to perform their func
tion of distributing news
papers in all weathers ami
under all conditions. Per
haps it is because of their
very faithfulness that so
little attention is paid, as
a rule, to the work they
do. Perhaps if they failed
a little oftener we would
be more inclined to stop
and consider their diffi

we’re wondered at the great
number of eminently success
