Making postage stamps is mi ela-
uoralc picco or work. In priming,
tocl plates arc. used, on which i200
stamps nrc engraved. Two men are
kept hard at work covering tliein
with colored ink? and passing thcui
to a man and n girl who are kept
equally busy printing them with large
rolling handprcsses. Three of these
little squads arc employed all the
time. After the small sheets of
paper upon which the 200 stamps arc
engraved arc dried enough, they arc
sent into another room and gummed.
Tho gum used for this purpose is a
peculiar composition made of the
powder of dried potatoes and other
vegetables, mixed with water. After
having been again dried, this time
on the little racks which arc fanned
by steam power, for about an hour,
they are put in between sheets of
pasteboard and pressed in hydraulic
presses capable of applying a weight
of 2,000 tons. Tho next tiling is to
cut the sheet in half ; each sheet, of
course, when cut contains a hundred
stamps. This is dono by a girl,
with a largo pair of shears, cutting
by hand being preferred to that of
machinery, whieli method destroys
too many stamps. They arc then
passed to other squads, who per
forate the paper between the stamps.
Next, they are pressed once more,
and then packed and labelled and
stored away for despatching to fulfil
orders. If a single stamp is torn,
or in any way mutilated, the whole
sheet of 100 stamps is burned. Five
hundred thousand . nrc burned every
week from this cause. During the
process of manufacture the sheets
arc counted eleven times. Ameri

How much better off a great many
people would lie if they stopped to
think, instead of going through life
with a slap dash. There are thou
sands of people who keep themselves
in a state of poverty, because they
spend money without stopping to
think. If a man save a sum of
money and invest it in a well-conducted
railway or telegraph enter
prise, he not only secures for himself
a good return, but lie permanently
benefits the community by employing
labor to that amount in a valuable
and reproductive manner.
Sydney Smith' recipe for cheer
fulness is not to hare one motive

number of little motives. A man
who from the time he rises till bed

man, who throws some little condes
cension into his manner to inferiors,
and who is always contriving to
soften the distance between himself
nnd the poor and ignorant, is alwa3'a
improving his animal spirits and
adding to his happiness.

THE REASON WHY.
Aly son, there's nothing on uuilh
so mysteriously funny as a news
paper advertisement. The prime,
first, last and all the time, object of
nn advertisement is to draw custom.
It is not, was not nnd never will bo
designed for any other human pur
pose. So the merchant waits till the
busy season comes and his store is
so full of custom that he can't get
his hat off and then he rushes to the
newspapers and puts in his advertise
ment. When the dull season gets
along and there is no trade, nnd ho
wants to sell goods so bad he can't
pay his rent, Tic takes out his adver
tisement. Tli at is, sonic of them
do, but occasionally n level-headed
merchant puts in n bigger one nnd
scoops nil the business, while his
neighbors arc making mortgages to
pay the gas bill. There arc times
when you couldn't stop people from
buying everything in the store if you
planted a cannon behind the door,
and that's the time the advertisement
is sent out on its holy mission. It
makes light work for the advertise
ment, for a chalk sign on the side
walk could do all that was needed
and have a half holiday six days in
the week, but who wants to favor an
advertisement. They arc built to do
hard work, and should be sent out
in the dull days when a. customer
has to be knocked down with hard
facts nnd kicked insensible 'with
bankrupt reductions and dragged in
witli irresistible slaughter of pricos
before he will spend a cent.
That's the aim and end of an ad
vertisement, my son, and if 3'ou
open a store don't try to get them
to come down when they arc already
sticking out of the windows, but
give them your advertisement right
between the eyes in the dull season,
and you will wax rich and own a
fast horse, and perhaps be able to
smoke a good cigar once or twice a
year. Write this down where you'.ll
fall over it every day. The time to
draw business is when you want
business, and not when 3011 have
more business than you can attend
to already. Bridgeport 1'ost.

A SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION.
The American Ambassador at Vienna,
Mr. Knsson, has lately forwarded to his
Government an Interesting account of n
rcmarkablu Biircic.nl operation lately
performed bv 1'iofcssor Billroth, o'f
Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, con.
slsted In the removal of a portion I
of the hum.in stomach, Involving
nearly oncthird of tho organ ami
strange to Bay, the patient recovered
tho only suiccsslut operation of the 1
Kind ever performed. The disease for
which this operation was performed
was eiiuoerof the stomneb, attended with
the following svuiptouis: The appetite
is quite poor. There is a peculiar indes
cribable distress In tho stomach, a feel
ing that has been described 11s a faint
"a(tvne" sensation; a sticky slime col
lects about the teeth, especially in the
morning, accompanied by nn unpleasant
taste. Food falls to sntlsYy this pecullnr
faint sensation; Imt, on tho contrary, it
appeals to aggravate the feeling. Tho
eyes are sunken, tinged with yellow; tho
hnuds and feet become cold and sttckv
a cold perspiration. The sufferers feel
tired all the time, ntul sleep dors not
seem to give rest. After a time the pa.
llent becomes nervous and irritable,
gloomy, bis mind filled with evil fore,
boding. When rising suddenly from
a recumbent position there is a dizziness,
n whistling sensation, nnd he is obliged
to grasp something Ilrm to keep from
falling. The bowels costive, the skin
dry and hot at times; the blood becom.
ing thick nnd stagnant, nnd does not
chr.ulntc properly. After a time tho
patient spits up l'ood soon after eating,
sometimes In a sour and fermented eon.
dltion, sometimes, sweetish to tho taste.
Oftentimes there is a palpitation of the
heart, and the patient fears he may have
heart disease. Towards tho last the
patient is unable, to retain any food
wnatever, as tno opening in tnu lines
tines becomes closed, or nearly so. Al.
though 'this disease is Indeed alarming,
sutlercM with the above named symp
toms should not feel nervous, for nine
hundred nnd ninety-nine cases out of a
thousand have no "cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a disease easily removed if
treated in a proper manner. The safest
and best lemedy for tho disease is

a few doses of the syrup, 1 found relief,

Dear Sir, I find the sale of Seigcl's
Syrup steadily increasing. All who have
tried it speak very highly of its medi.
ciual virtues: one customer describes it
ns a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I
always recommend it with confidence.

Dear Sir, I write to inform you that
I liuve derived great bcnellt from
"Seigcl's Syrup." For some years I have
suffered from liver complaint, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a perpetual misery.
Twelve months ago I was induced to try
Seigcl's, Syrup, nnd although rather
sceptical, having tried so mnny reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it at least a fair trial. In two or tlirco
days I felt considerably better, and now
at the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a dillerent being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "conic
as a boon and a blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt the truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Seigcl's Syrup has come as a
"boon and a blessing" to me. I have re
commended it to several fcllow-sufferers
from this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quito in accordance
with my own. Gratitude for tho benefit
I have derived from the excellent pre
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir,
Yours ever gratefully,

My Dear Sit, Your Syrup and Pills
are still very popular with my customers,
many saying they arc the best family
Tho other day a customer came for
two bottles of Syrup and said "Mother
Seigcl" had saved tho life of his wife,
and he lidded, "one of these bottles I
am sending fifteen miles away to a friend
who is very ill. I havo much fath In it."
The sale keeps up wonderfully, In fact,
one would fancy almost that the people
were bcginnin; to breakfast, dine, and
sup on Mother Seigcl's Syrup, tho de
mand is so constant and tho satisfaction
