POST CARDS USEQ TO ANNOY.
Grand Jury Indicts Business Man for
Misuse of the Malls.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 14.-The feder
al grand jury hero has Indicted Jt F.
Hardin, a railroad, agent, on a charge
of using the mails to annoy N. Nor
wood Mitchell, agent of the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad.
The charges grew out of an end
less chain of postcards which Har
din sent to Mitchell. Following are
samples of the cards:
"Mr. Windy Gassaway Mitchell,
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Atlan
ta." This, card carried a medal on
which Is inscribed, "This beautiful
medal awarded to the champion
A sentence objectionable to the re
cipient read, "If hot air was music
you'd be a brass band."
Another read: "Windy, the great
and mighty Windy Mitchell. God
made the world and rested. God
made man and rested. Then God
made Windy. Since then neither
God nor man has rested."
Another was addressed, "Windy
Noisy Mitchell, Freight Beggar, B. &
O. R. R Atlanta."
Mitchell was Georgia commission
er at the Jamestown exposition. He
favored Roosevelt for a third term
and carried to the last Republican
national convention a monster peti

Wo Eat too Much.
Most of us eat too much at all
times. On such occasions as Christ
mas we eat entirely too much. It Is a
serious matter which concerns the
health of all.
More illness is caused by over-eating
than by any other one thing. We
gorge the system with too much food
and our inability to take care of all
that is piled in leads to all sorts of
There were times when most of
our ancestors lived In the open air
and did hard physical work. Then
big eating was necessary. The hard
er the physical exertion, especially in
the open and cold, the more food Is
necessary. Food is fuel. Exertion
eats up the fuel and cold consumes
In these days, however, there is
very little work of a hard physical
kind in the open air for the majority
of us. We ought, therefore; to be
light eaters. But, most of us are not,
and the very large majority of peo
ple est entirely too much.

Worchcstcr Mechanical Engineer

Worchestar, Mass. Wallace E.
Tllllnghast, u mechanical engineer of
recognized a'jllity and connected with
the foremost steam heating concerns
in this section, claims to have invent
ed an aeroplane capable of carrying
three persons with a weight limit of
200 pounds each, 300 miles without
a. stop to replenish a supply of petrol,
and attain a speed of about 100 miles
an hour. He says his machine is
of the monoplane type with a spread
of 72 feet, a weight of 1550 pounds
and furnished with a twelve-horse
power gasoline engine made under
his own direction and specifications.
He will not say where the monoplane
was constructed, that being his se
cret, but he makes this statement:
"On the night of September 8,
with two machinists, I left the shop
where the machine Is stored and was
oullt and set out for Now York city,
which we reached coming close to
