fortnblv. Any bank in tho town
would hr.vo lout him money on his
unondorsod noto. Whnt did ho want
of tho monoy? To buy lottory tick
et a! Ho was buying them nt tho rnto
of $200 per month, hoping to make
n big strike. When Ins house was
searched wo found nisi one-dollar
tickets for tho current drawing, but
ho intended to mako tho number an
oven 200. In six months ho had pur
chased over 700 tickets, and yot all
his prizos did not foot up $100. It
isn't six months since he loft tho De
troit Houso of Correction, where ho
served his sontenco.
I boliovo, and it is tho boliof of all
tho oflicials of tho Tostal Depart
ment, that that lottory did moro to
dishonor postal employees than all
other temptations combined. Thou
sands of lottors containing $1 and $2
bills wore constantly passing through
tho mails. A percentage of tho em
ployees who handled them argued
that tho lottery was dishonest and
under tho ban of the department,
and that tho 11101103 would be lost to
tho sender ovon if tho3 didn't steal
it. Thoro cau bo no just argument
in favor of dishonest 3, but such
arguments as abovo probably helped
to stifle conscience-. In two years 1
alone detected fourteen dishonest
omplo3cos and brought thoni to
i'ustico. I will rolato 0110 case which
iad somo special feat tiros.
A raihva3 mail clork on a certain
run south of tho Ohio Hiver was
under suspicion. Tho suspicion
arose from a siugular circumstance.
Ho was a singlo man, 30 years old,
and had onlv his salary to live on.
Among tho list of donors for a fund
to orect a church edifieo was ho, and
ho had given S72.". When I found
this out I dropped all othor clues
and concentrated on him. While 1
was watching ho turned in $275
more, thus bringing his subscription
up to $1000. One day after I had all
ny plans laid I entered his car and
hold him up. Ho had thirty letters
in his pockets, all of thorn contain
ing monoy and addressed to tho lot
tery. Ho attempted no defence,
and urged ouhy ouo excuse. He
thought tho money had better go
into a church building than into the
coffers of tho lottery. Ho had not
convortod a penii3 to his own use,
and he frankly acknowledged that it
was his intention to steal $2300 and
then quit. I can mention another
singular thing which occurred at
about the same time. A man in
Penus3lvauia ordered two one-dollar
tickets by mail. As tho tickets wore
on their way to him they were stolon
by a railway mail clork. Whon the
drawiug for the month came off it
was discovered that one of tho
tickets had drawn $5000. The clork
had not preserved tho address of tho
rightful owner. He slipped down to
Now Orleans to got tho 11101103. Tho
lottery compan3's books showed to
whom tho tickets wore sent, and as
tho clerk gavo a different namo and
address suspicions wore aroused and
he was run down. Ho had burned
up tho two tickets before being ar
rested, and tho lottory compnuy was
Of all postal omploj'ees tho letter
carrier has tho most temptation
thrown in his way. Thoro is no 0110
to watch him. He goes out over his
route with hundreds of lottors, and
is sorting and rosorting until ho can
give a pretty good guess at tho con
tents of each one. If ho fails to de
liver an ordinary lottor, who can
charge him with embezzling it?
There is, however, but one course for
him to pursue. Ho must mako up
his mind to bo strictly honest. If
ho cannot withstand temptation ho
is doomed. Ho may escape detec
tion for a few weeks or ovon months,
but thoro is nothing surer than that
ho will bo caught in tho ond. One
of tho most powerful weapons of tho
Post Office inspector is tho decoy
lottor. I know that judges, lawyers,
and tho press havo inveighed against
it, but it is nevertheless tho safe
guard of tho honest and tho terror
of tho dishonest omplo3'eo. It trips
up moro rascals in tho service than
all their schemes combined. I had
a rather curious caso in western
Now York last year. A man in a cer
tain town was advertising a cureall,
aud lottors camo to him from all
over tho county. Thoro were com
plaints of losses, and I traced tho
mattor up until suro that tho fault
la3 in tho homo office. It fiiuilly
narrowed down to one clork. I sent
in six decoy lottors and four of them
Woro gobbled. Ho was a young man
and spent considerable monoy
around town, but none of 1113' mark
ed bills turned up. Ho was follow
ed to saloons, billiard parlors, livery
stables, and othor places where ho
I aid bills, but it was noticed that
10 invariably paid in silver. While
trying to solve tho niystor' I drop
pod into a placo within a stop of tho
Post Ollico, whoro an old woman
sold root boor, lomonado, sand
wichos, and tho like. After drinking
a glass of tho beor I found I had no
change, and tendered hor a fivo-dol-lar
bill. She gavo 1110 four ones
with tho chango, and two of thorn
had my mark on.
"What drink does Charles
soom to prefer?" 1 queried, giving
hor tho full namo of tho clork I was
"Oh, root boor alwa3s," sho re
plied. "Ho comes in ofton?"
"Three or four times a day. sir."
"Havo 3ou got plonty of silver for
"Why, sir, I always keep a few
dollars in silver ly 1110. If it's in sil
ver it can't burn up."
On tho very next da3 I was in t ho
placo, whou tho clork came in, drank
a glass of root beer, and handed out
a marked bill ho had taken from my
last decoy letter. I had no sym
pathy for him, as ho had no excuse
for his dishonesty. 1 havo seen it
stated in uowspapors that whoro an
employee who has lots of influonco
behind him goes wrong ho is allow
od to resign aud the mattor is hush
ed up. If any such cases have oc
curred I am ignorant of thorn. I do
not boliovo thoy havo occurred.
Among thousands of carriers, clerks,
and railway mail handlers thoro will
always bo found somo crooked peo
ple. Tho supervision must bo con
stant and critical, and tho punish
ment must bo prompt and sovoro, for
reasons 1 have already named. It is
raroly that I'nelo Sam condones an
offonco against tho law. I havo of
ten thought tho punishniont too se
voro for the crime. However, of all
men who may bo inclined to tlis
honest3, tho 'postal einployoo dis
plays tho most foolishness. Tho
common thief may steal and got
nwa3. Tho burglar and tho high
way robber run oven chances, thoy
figure. We read every day ot book
keepers, clerics, and cashiers who
have been stealing for years. The
postal employee who goes wrong 's
dead certain of quick discovery and
a heav3 sentence. Tt is as sure to
come as the sun is to rise, lie there
fore lacks sense when ho permits
himself to bo tempted.
One more case, almost my last,
and t uui done. For over a ycarl
was "onto" a clerk in a certain
Southern Post Ollico, but ho was too
sharp for 1110. Ho was a married
man, had no vices, and his outside
aud inside standing was good. After
awhile another inspector was sent
on to holp me. I was suro ho had
pocketed 1113 deco3 letters with
others, but 110110 of tho 11101103 could
bo traced. Wo watched his pny
tneuts to butcher, grocer, coal man.
liiied holp, and so on, but it was all
straight 11101103. Ho was on duty
at tho ollico a part of tho afternoon
and a portion of tho night. Ho was
watched at ins worlc lor weens ami
weeks, but not a suspicious action
was seen. Letters wore still going
attraj, howevor, and Iliad lost $50
in different deco3 lottors. If ho sus
pected that ho was watched ho did
not butray tho fact. Ono da3 ho foil
dead of heart disease on the street,
and tho bod3 was taken homo before
wo heard tho news. From that da3
no moro letters wore taken. Wo
woro morally certain ho was tho
man, but had no evidence, nor did
wo got any for three months. Tluni
his widow moved to another liouso.
In tho process sho discovered 46(5
letters in an old trunk in a storo
rooui. Over four hundred of thorn
had 11101103 inclosed, and 3'ot not ono
had been opened or tampered with.
Tho man had stolon them, but I am
not clear as to his action. Was it a
mania which stopped short of get
ting possession, or was ho sharp
enough to la3 thoni away and bido
his time? His widow could offor no
explanation of how tho lottors camo
to bo in tho trunk, nor did tho
authorities hunt for any. Wo did
not want to blacken tho doad man's
character. Somo of tho lottors had
been mailed thirteen months pre
vious. Thoro woro throe which ho
had taken only tho day belore his
death, but how ho had managed to
do it with 1113 0303 on him all tho
time I havo not been able to figure
out. Chas. B. Lewis in JTew l'ork
Perhaps some of our readers would
liko to know in what rospect Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is better
than any othor. Wo will tell you.
When this Remedy is takon as soon
as a cold has been contracted, and
before it has become sottled in tho
sybtoin, it will counteract tho effect
of tho cold and greatly lesson its
severity, if not ollechially euro tho
cold in two da3s' time, and it is tho
only remedy that will do this. It
acts in perfect harmoii3 with nature
and aids nature in relieving tho
lungs, opening tho secretions, liquo
f3ing tho mucus and causing its ex
pulsion from tho air colls of tho
lungs and restoring tho S3'stem to a
strong and healtli3 condition. No
othor romed3 in tho market possesses
these reinarkablo properties. No
othor will euro a cold so quickly or

dition. For sale ljy all dealers.
