As long as the sat chel is in the hands of the mes senger, it is quiet; but as soon as he lets go of it, the bells begin to ring and the revol ver is fired. Such a thief-proof satchel, weighing 81h., has recently boon patented.—" Popular Mechanics'."

An Emergency Envelope. Occasionally a person has use for a long envelope and if hone is at hand, two smaller envelopes, says Mr. W. M. Braly, will answer the purpose as well. Cut the right end from one and the left end from the other and place one inside of the other so thnt the open ends will lap, and paste them at the edge. In this way an envelope of the desired length may be made. "I can tell you," said the accu rate man, "how muth water flows uncfer London Bridge every day to a quart." •.'How much ?" asked hl9 sceptical friend. "Two pints," "

One morning, soon after the bug ler had sounded "letter call," the spaniel came in with neither papers nor letters. This was unusual, for the oflicer subscribed to a daily 3apcr that invariably arrived in the morning's post, but he thought little of it at the time. About eleven o'clock, however, the dog en tered his nuister's quarters and de posited a muddy paper upon the floor. The officer did not under stand the situation, but he gave the dog a lump of sugar. .Later the dog appeared with a letter in his mouth. Then the owner's suspicions were aroused.

Yankee "Drummers." AND FOREIGN ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914
Yankee "Drummers." AND FOREIGN ORDERS. A writer who is contributing to the New York "Sun" a series of entertaining "Nifty lessons of Sales manship," i combines liurjiour and commonsense, and at the same timo gives a good example of spirited American' journalese. The extract is from a lesson *' on collecting or ders abroad. Many firms send their men ten thousand miles afield, and then when, (he men drop anchor and get ready for business they find they can't do a piastre's worth, because dear 'firms expect them to sell to the wholesale trade at prices that the consumer gets in America. Such firms . get the idea that foreign na tions are still living in the trees and eating cocoanuts. They think their goods are going to prove such eye-bulgers to the natives that they will throw a stampede to get them at any old price. For instance, the minute yoii alight on a foreign shore you don't need to think you aro compelled by pa triotic duty to appoint yourself Press agent' for Uncle Sam. In tr...
