If all the 90,000 horses used in the rural free delivery service of the postoffice department -were stood in atraifiht line froiw New York City to San Francisco, there would be a horse every forty-six yards. The distance, as the crow flies, is 2350 miles. Forty thousand men do the work, and practically all carriers own two horses, while some of them have three, made necessary bylonjr-sandyor hilly routes.  These horses, on an average, last only three years at the work, which is extremely hard. They are worth on an averag-e of $100 each.  So it follows thiit the carriers must average one new horee every year, value $3,000,000 and this three millions goes, for the most part, to the farmers along the different R. F. D. routes.  It costs $100 a year to feed a horse sufficiently well so that he'can stand the work of the ayerage R. F. D. route and we find the farm-era benefitting another $9,000,000 from this source.  The figures grow stupendous. They sound like Standard Oil or war statistics.  Thus we have $12,000,000 annually paid over to farmers which they did not receive before the days of free rural delivery. It is a new source of income.  Vehicles and harness, bicycles, motoqpj'cles, and an occasional automobile, cost the R. F. D. $3,000,000 annually. Here we have new set of beneficiaries; bicycle dealers, automobile salesmen, harness makers.  It costs $50 a year to keep a horse which is constantly on the road properly shod and to keep vehicles in ordinary repair—or $2,000,000 more to another set of beneficiaries, horse-shoers blacksmiths and wheelwrights. j  Small merchants in country 'districts come in for their share of prosperity from the R. F. D. too. They sell the R. F. D. men heavy lap-robes, storm robes and overcoats for cold weather, and rain coats and rubber lapcovers for rainy weather. They profit to the extent of about $1,000,000 annually, which is allowing.but $25 for each mail . carrier, and pertainly that amount is small enough.  Thus we find the R. F. D, men spending $13,000,000 annually for equipment which is approximately half their income.  But if the $18,000,000 net income looks pretty big, divide it by 40,000 the number of men to whom it is paid and you will' find that each tnan has $450 per year as his net wages, __  Highest Point in Iowa.  The Spirit Lake Boosters organization is making an effort to have the United States Weather Bureau department establish a government observatory at that place.  This location is tirged as a valuable one from the standpoint of observing weather conditions, as this is the highest latitude between the Allegheney and Rocky mountains, the altitude being-1,7000 feet above the sea level.. The Iowa Lakes-Spirit, East Okoboji and West Okoboji, with innumerable smaller lakes—are the highest lakes in the Mississippi valley.  The very highest point of land is located on the southwest shore of West Okoboji. Should the government determine to locate an observatory at this very highest point it would be an admirable one for ob^rvation. Telephone connections run to all parts of the lake. From this high point, with the lakes stretching before it, the unimpeded velocity of the wind could be observed. The barometer observations it is urged, would also be of value to the government in observing storm , movements.  Boy's Essay on "Breathing."  The following is said to be a Sutherland school boy's composition on "breathing", says an ex change. Breath is made of air. We breath with our lungs, our liver and our kidneys. If it wasn't for our breath we would die when we are asleep. Boys that stay in a room all day should not breathe. They should wait till they get out doors. Boys in a room make bad, uhwholeaome air. They make ,Qar-bonicide. - Carbonicide 'ie poisoner than mad dogs. A heap of soldiers was in a black hole iu India, and a carbonicide got.in that there hole and nearly killed every one afore morning. Girls kill the breath with corsets that squeeze the diagram. Girls can't holler or run like boys because their diagrams is squeezed to much. If I waa a girl I had rather be u boy, so 1 can run, holler and row- and have a great big diagram."
