In official language thero aro postal
cards and post cards. Tho former Is
tho penny card issued by tho govern
ment with tho stamp printed upon It,
while tho post enrd, usually pictorial,
can bo produced by anybody, subject to
restrictions In slzo and weight, and
must havo n stamp afllxed. Lately tho
souvenir post card has become n sort
of avnlancho lu America as well as
Kurope, and forms a serious problem
lu tho working arrangements of post
ofllces. Tho post card Is one of tho
things that were never definitely born,
but Just grow. I'lctorlnlly, It first camo
Into notice in Germany, ten years ago,
and that country, with Franco and
England, still lead In Its use, mailing
last year 1,200,000,000, valued at 22,
000,000, and calling on tidrty different
occupations In their manufacture. Their
popularity In tho United States dates
from 1002 and tins kept growing until
they hnvo almost overwhelmed some of
tho imstofllccs, especially In tho vaca
tion season. At Coney Island, with Its
Labor Day outing, ,175,000 souvenir
cards wero sent In tho outgoing mall,
and a week lator at tho name resort a
baby show resulted lu the mailing of
200,000 souvenir cards lu n slnglo day.
An unexpected addition like this to
postal labors Is n serious question to
those who must deal with It practically,
but It Is evidently an Innovation that
has coino to stay. A certain degree of
epistolary gullo Is found In tho sou

for writing and tho communication
must necessarily bo short. If trio pic

Instead nnd writing, "Just n lino while

ncceptablo than receiving n many-paged
letter that calls for n considerate re
sjKinso In which brevity Is out of tho
question. It Is nil age of concentration
and dispatch. Moments are precious.
Tho merely perfunctory Induces a tired
feeling. Tho souvenir card has n charm
even though spiced with subterfuge.
Kvll natures Musi ujhii tho post card
to turn It Into comic valentines or some
thing still more objectionable, but
tsjstal authorities effectually stop that
toudcucy by throwing inversions Into
tho dead letter waste basket. Its range
of legitimate uses Is largo, nud they

That high collar tond to produce
nervous uoadai'lio among both men and
women Is tho most recent discovery of
n well-known Viennese physician. Quito
Accidentally tho doctors attention was
directed to tho very high nnd very tight
stylo of collar worn by a patient who
was always complaining of hoadachos
mid giddiness. Tho collar was laid
aside, thus removing tho compression
of tho neck, and the patient's head
eliea and giddiness disappeared.
Struck by this result, tho doctor paid
particular attention to tho kind of col
lars worn by his "headaelie patients"
ud hi very many Instances the change
to lower and easier Uttlng collars
brought. Immediate relief. In the case
of women wearing high, stiff ueckbands
It was found that doing away with
tlieso had a similarly beneficial result.
The doctor declared that uobody with
any toudency to headacho should wear
