    OBERLIN, Kan. - A postcard featuring a color drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl was mailed in 1914, but its journey was slower than Christmas. It just arrived in northwest Kansas.

    The Christmas card was dated Dec. 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Neb.

    <snip>(snip)

    The card was placed inside another envelope with modern postage for the trip to Oberlin &#8212; the one-cent postage of the early 20th century wouldn't have covered it, Martin said.
