in the custody pf One result of this was that fell desperately in love with the young Welsh and when at last he was set at liberty he told her of his and resolved to make her his wife or perish in the attempt in those days there was a class of traveling harpers who passed from house to being every where gladly received for the sake of their mastery of an instrument of which the Welsh were passionately Few guests were more welcome than the wandering Some time after the parting of Alfred and Euronwy a traveling harper came to the and played some of those airs which are never sweeter than

the United States has just been which is strikingly significant as indicating in which portions of the country the greatest amount of mail service is rendered of Most readers will understand that the railway postal car service is little less than the establishment of a postoffice upon in which letters and other mailable matter may be deposited and in which they will be carried to their destination without being redistributed at intermediate local In these postal cars the mails are distributed and made up as at local and in one instance at lease packages are made for city carriers and are distributed by without going through the city saving several hours in the sorting of Under the old system letters going from Omaha to New York would have to be sorted and distributed several times upon the but under the new the letter would not enter a postoffice between the two all the business done in the postal saving perhaps thirty-six hours in its railway postal car service of the government begins in the extreme at McAdam in New six miles east of St. on the St. Croix which is the easternly boundary of and continues an unbroken stretch to the Pacific Its northern limit is St. from which reaches to New that city being the only Gulf or Atlantic port included in the system between the Mexican frontier and on the Potomac This system has grown to its present on account of the desire on the part of the General to increase the speed in the transmission of and to adapt that means of to the growing commercial interests of the The vast extent of our domain and the geographical impossibility of locating financial centers at points not by nature designated as entrepots for the agricultural and manufactured products of so a. territory has rendered imperative the establishment of the most comprehensive accommodate the correspondence that daily and hourly pours and between such those of in which are located the most important for distributing the products of the nation's wealth and industry should be the most frequently crossed and recrossed by the routes of the railway postal car that the transaction of business may be the least impeded where there is the greatest demand for and A glance at map shows that the great point from which radiates the routes grand system is the city of and also that the State of Illinois possesses within its boundaries the terminal points of miles of those arterial lines than any other State of the Taking the city ot Chicago as the grand these faculties at nearly and On the north the terminal point is the metropolis of the thriving city of St. while upon the south may called there being a gap m the between that city and from which a line is run to New On the west there is but one beyond to the while easterly one line beyond connects us with the New England and Middle The converging of these lines at Chicago is more suggestive of the arterial system of the human body than any ot intended to illustrate that phenomenon could were in the United according to the last report of tlie Postmaster on the 30th day of 1873, fifty-seven lines of railway postal car embracing an aggregate of 14,117 following thf point in the States the aggregate number of miles of such 17 3,432 9 2,^37 S 1,814 7 1,852 7 1,109 5 1,293 a 1,151 routes have both their terminal points in Illinois than any other State in the while it is also crossed by eleven more than any other three States The same rule that is applicable to States holds good in regard to as will be seen from the following table showing the number of routes terminating in the cities with the length of such fl 2,214 5 1,391 r 1,219 4 1,032 so casual a of t his Whatever may be the course of empire it is certain that the business energy of the business that labors and work s rather than loans inherited already found its home in the heart of the continent and is developing its resources and increasing its wealth and Its needs are so imperative as to gain from the General to the strength of which it so That the great West beyond us shall be so rapidly developed as has been our own growth is entirely but ihe geographical centre of the pace with the national is the terminus of the Pittsburg and Philadelphia and is on the line of the route from New York to Indianapolis is the terminal point of two from Cleveland to that city and the other to St. Cincinnati has one line to St. the has as has also St. Utica and N. and Mich. The table indicates that there are four hubs to the national the two near that are expected to carry the load and do the business being at the while the hght and fancy part of the business is transacted in front or at the map shows another important feature in the business of the The only States having no railway postal car service are all and generally those that suffered most during the North the exception of fourteen West and The State of Kentucky has one Irne across the from Louisville to Alabama has one line across the extreme northerly part of its which is of no practical value to the State at has but seventy-eight miles of Georgia and Tennessee three neither which penetrates far into the interior of the The fact that more of these routes are at the West than at the East is owing no to the fact that railways arc more frequent here than because our country rendered the building of such roads easier than in the more rugged State of Pennsylvania and New But this does not account for wide discrepancy between the mileage in the two As between at the West alone no such reasons could be urged to explain the difference between one line in Cincinnati and five at St. or nine in Chicago and one in and it is probably that the amount of business done in each of these cities would be found to vary about the proportion to the railway service routes that exist between position of Iowa and relative importance in the being third in its number of is in a great measure to the fact that grand lines of railway pass the State its entire length from east to while another reaches from to the western quarter of the The volume of the postal business of the State no doubt requires these which are furnished because the means for supplying the demand are There are some of these routes upon postal car service is performed twice These are as Between Albany and and Mass.
