Men. As early as 1343 a woman post
master was appointed to look after
the mails of Brain e le Comte. an im
portant town of France. In the try
lex times of the Thirty Tears war,
the principal office in the postal serv
ice of Europe was held by a woman,
Alexandrine de Rue. From 162S to
1S4S she was in charge of the mails
of the German empire, the Nether
lands. Burgundy and Lorraine. She
was known as a master general of the
mails. In America. Elizabeth Harvey
was the first to hold a place in the
postal department. She had charge
of the letters in Portsmouth. N. H in
the beginning of the seventeenth cen

Hill was placed in charge of the post
office in Salem. Mass.
Not Ashamed of Economy.
Discussing England and the English
from an American point of view, a re
cent American writer in England ob
serves: "Nobody, from the king of
England down, is either ashamed or
afraid to be economical. Here a man
or a woman is thought to be a fool

expenditure, while la America our
waiters hare been clever enough to
make It appear that economy is mean,
and as a nation we suffer according

Laundry work at home would be

Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it Is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
-keouty and fineness of the fabric is
bidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trou

Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its great

New York is evidently harboring

King Edward is getting to be a vet

the ninth year of bis reign.
Now that the hot-weather record
has been broken, it is to be hoped it
will be mended and stay so.
A Virginia woman shot her husband

In France, as in this country. It is
the wealthier families that are
shunned by the stork. Maybe the
haughty footman scares the timid bird.
Now that canned fresh air is to be in
troduced into mines as a .safety de
vice, the canning idea appears to have
reached its height or, to speak cor
rectly in this case, its depth.
A man in St. Louis has invented a
vice which he claims will make air
flights safe. But this will detract
largely from the excitements of seeing
them if curious crowds are assured
nobody will be hurt.
A girl in Pennsylvania who aimed
at a rat with a rifle shot her mother.
It is time that feminine sharpshooters
should learn something by experience.
If the girl in question had aimed at
her mother, she would have stood a
better chance of shooting the rat.
Women ought to know by this time
that they go by contraries.
A man in New York brought his
wife into court because she had such
a mania for hard work that he could
not restrain her from doing it all the
time. This one remarkable case is
enough to balance the many which
women bring against their husbands
because the latter compel them to do
hard work all the time.

Aeroplanes having shown capacity
for going swiftly and for long dis

It is obvious that an airship to be of

Bitter Words Found Written on a Dol

said the receiving teller. "Tve been

to a one-dollar bill hung in a frame
of black oak on the wall. "Read

The Doctors' Orders.
A lady whose husband seemed to be
doing little but lie in the hammock
and eat apples, was asked by a sym
pathetic neighbor what the trouble
with him was. "Doctors," she replied,
sadly. "No, he hasn't come Into a for
tune." A writer In To-Day's Magazine
tells the story.
"Tou see," explained the wife, "he's
been having some sort of matter with
his stomach, and he consulted two dif
ferent doctors about it. One told him
to eat a ripe apple every hour, and
the other said to rest an hour after
eating. So he's trying to do both."
Anything But That,
Little John Is the youngest of a
family of five boys, says the Deline
ator. One day his mother said to
him: "O, John, isn't It too bad I have
n't one little girl? I could curl her
hair and make such pretty little
dresses for her. Don't you wish you
were a little girl?"
"Why, mother," he said, "I'd rather
be most any other kind of animal you
could mention than a girl."
