Washing with Aeids--Patchiing Together
Unoanceled Parts of Several Stamps
Eow-They Are used. t
(From the New York Star.)
"The most troublesome offenders f
against government laws' are the cx- a
ports who use canceled postage stamps," I
said a postoftice official the other day. f
"They have a -vsten of washing out 1

Impossible. In the offices of large cities I
like New York and Chicago, where so
many letters are handled 'daily, and
twbere rapidity is the most desirable 1
feature, it is. ilpossiblc iir the men 1
who cancel stamps to eaatmine each
one carefiily. Then, too, a great deal
of the wo k is done by gaslight, and
this is I point which tendls to aid the

ily see how impossible it is for him to
detect bad stamps unless they are par
ticularly. bad. The men engagerr in
the business of using canceled stamps
are extremely clever. They have an
acid in which they wash the stamps.
The acid acts upon the cancellation
marks, and not upon the colors of the
stamp. In this way a stamp that has
011Ce been used is relieved almost en
tirely of its black marks. if any
