Highland Telegraph Girl

"In many out-of-the-way places in the Highlands the 'Telegraph Boy' belies his description and turns out to be a girl.

Thus Janet 'from scholastic trammels free' in the holidays and out of school time enters the arena of wage-earners, and so lightens the burden of keeping the house."
