EMPLOYEES of the postal service

which they may organize and affiliate j

the federation, is supporting the move-

they were active In encouraging em-
ployees of the service to organize, have
told the committee of the wrongs
.which they assert are done the em-
ployees. In a general way, the griev-
ance of the employees is that men are
frequently dismissed for purely polit-
ical reasons, men let out of the serv-
ice have no recourse.
It Is pointed out that the postofflce
department now forbids the individual
employee from laying any complaint
he may have before his senator or
member of congress. The civil service
commission has come in for much
criticism because it has not taken

WASHINGTON.—An army that does
not exist is being officered by the
war department in obedlenco to the
mandate of congress. Fifty and more
men versed in the profession of arms
ire already on the eligible list for com-
missions in this army. Three new
ooards of army officers, composed of
seasoned colonels, experienced majors,
captains' and first and second lleuten-
mts, were recently named to pass upon
the qualifications of other candidates
ambitious to direct imaginary military

ly army of United States volunteers
It's a joker in the Dick militia bill, en-
acted into law by congress on May 27,
The I)icV bill originally provided for
an actua/ army of United States volun-
teers similar to the volunteers who en-
listed for the Spanish-American war
after state organizations were found
to be troublesome.
The bill also provided for a separate
section for an eligible list from which
officers were to be commissioned when
the ariny of United States volunteers,
subject only to the will of the com-
mander-in-chief of the armies of the
United States, might be called into be-
ing in a condition of war.
The section providing for the vol-
unteer army was stricken from the bill
in the course of a legislative wrangle
over the privilege of the states to or-
ganize volunteers. The authority cre-
ating the army was thus destroyed, but
the contingent section bringing into ex-
istence the list of eligibles for the
army's commissioned offifficers was not
disturbed. The bill thus passed con-
gress, disembodying the army but pro-
viding officers for it. That is why
the war department is now qualifying
men as eligibles.

theory with respect to the effect of I
i auto-suggestion on the temperature of |
the body. Mr. Fitzgerald sat at his
desk all through a sizzling, swelter-
ing day, wealing a smile of perfect
peace. His coat was buttoned light-
ly, the collar of it turned up around
■his neck, and every now and then he
.shivered with unseasonable delight.
.' Right in front of Mr. Fitzgerald a
llarge person with bushy black whis-

bank squinting through a transil or
some other funny looking instrument
of that sort. To his right another
large person, clad in furs, sat on a
cake of ice and scribbled busily In a

when he says this worrying about the
heat Is largely the result of one's
mental attitude. I've been sitting here
looking at this picture for an hour
and 1 am thinking of resuming my
winter flannels. I wish I could carry
it around with me."
Chairman Fitzgerald found the

The illusion is helped along by a bat

appear as if cooling breezes from the
very pole itself were sweeping
through the room.
