Dishonest Postal Clerks.
"It id because one niau thinks him
self a tri fie smarter than another that
makes his thoughts run into dishonest
channels," said an old po6toffico in
spector. "I can acount for the fre
quent arrest in al! parts of the coun
try of employes of the postal service,
especially clerks in tho postoffioei? and
letter carriers, only upon this hypoth
esis, and that there is sn inherent
streak in his composition of dishon
esty, because he knows better than
the public that once we get after pos
tal thieves we never stop until we
land them in jail. And still they go
on all over the land pilfering from let
ters, believing themselves safe. It j
must jar some of them when they tum- I
ble into the trap we set.
"It is a matter of corresponding in
terest to remember that, as theso dis
honest clerks well knew, thc trap
whioh places the mauaoles around
their wrists is thc same old trap, like
thc same old bear trap, reliable and
certain io hold faBt once it is sprung,
only it catches their pilfering hand
instead of their feet. It is the decoy
letter which the postal thief quickly
and slyly picks up and secretes about
his person or elsewhere, and once it
is in his hand the trap is sprung,
the hand of the inspector on the case
closes about his wrist, and Lc^walksto
the station house to ruminate how
easily he was caught once the inspec
tor decided upon the man of the force
who was guilty among the honest.
"Now, since every postal employe
in the United States knows that once
the officials are suspicious of theft
along his route or postal car run, that
the inspectors lay all sorts of trapB
for him behind the bars, why will
they steal money letters with appre
hension practically inevitable? Be
cause human nature is the same in all
callings, and thc postal employee is
cast in no different mould than the
rest of UH; it is enly his environment.
Yes, they know instantly, instinct
ively, whether a letter contains mon
ey, as a bank teller can tell by the
feeling of a bill before he looks at it
that it is a counterfeit. We know
this, too, and that is the reason why
we fish for them with the decoy letter,
and land them, thus safe-guarding the
the public and the department from
"Thedeooy letter looks no different
from any other letter, and it feels just
tho same to tho dishonest hand of tho
postal thief as any letter containing
money. We usually place three to
five marked ?1 bills in the envelope.
The instant the fingers of the dishon
est man 'strips' along tho envelope he
knows that it-contains money, and he
will steal it if he can. His eagerness
and disinclination to let any letter with
money go by him enable us to catch
him when we learn to a certainty the
route upon which money letters are
"Some employes are very foxy, and
go on a long time before they are de
tected. They often try to place the
guilt upon an innocent carrier \T> rbis
way. In making up their routes, and
getting their mail from the distribut
ing tables, they handle the mail be
longing to the other carriers, li is an
easy thing to detect money ietters io
the other fellow's lot, and include
them in their own, tobe purloinncd at
leisure and suitable opportunity.
"Suspicion naturally falls upon the
innocent carrier and he is placed under
secret surveillance. Decoy letters
aro mailed, and by other means it is
endeavored to fix the guilt upon him.
If our usual methods fail, we too, be
come suspicious that an innocent man
is being 'worked.' We drop him nnd
try to locate the actual thief, and it
is not long I cf ore we have him in jail.
Sometimes two dishonest employes
will work together, but as si rule pos
tal thieves ure like the lune highway
man and prefer to go it alone.
"Von see, the dishonest employe
foolishly believes that he can beat the
game, and au arrest in a large office
only has a temporary deterrent effect

upon the secret thieves therein. They
are more cautious and may perhaps
lie low for a brief time, but not for
long. It is a singular but tru<; official
fact that once a man begins to steal
money letters he seldom voluntarily
quits, and we have had men confess
that they had been in this nefarious
business for years and would have re
mained at it as long as they were ia

law to have an interview with every

is about to leave the house, lt is the
chaplain's duty to give the departing
prisoner good advice and to exhort
him to be a decent and honorable man
in the future.
In the course of one of these inter
views the chaplain said: "Now, my
friend, I hope you'll never have to
come back to a place like this."
The prisoner looked at him thought
fully and then asked: 4,I say, chap

the affirmative, the prisoner remarked:

Many youug tuen, beginning a busi

mistake of supposing that financial
credit is based wholly upon property
or capital. They do not understand

and a disposition to work hard, are far
more important assets to have than
millions of dollars. The young fellow
who begins by sweeping out the store,

Most the Negro Cotton Picker Go.
Feature after feature of the Old
South is passing and plantation life as
it was befo' the wah will soon be a
memory at the current rate of ohange.
It might bo supposed that so long as
cotton remains the staple in Dixie one
feature at least of antebellum daya
the darky ootton picker-must sur
vive. But even this tuneful and
jovial, if hard-driven, relic of the
past, it appears, must go.
A ootton-picking machine has been
put on the market, after ten years of
experimenting and adjusting, and a
contract has just been closed through
which the new machinery will be put
in operation in Mississippi on a large
scale on a Washington County planta
tion next fall. The inventor of the
machine admits that it can be used to
advantage only on the level uplands,
low valleys and prairie grounds, but
success, which seems reasonably as
sured, within these limitations, will
revolutionize the cotton-picking indus
try in the South. The inventor, it is
needless to say, is a Yankee. Thus
one Yankee, Whitney, devised the
cotton gin, which helped fill the
Southern plantations with negroes by
making their labor enormously profit

ward with a contrivance which bids fair
to reverse the process.-Milwaukee

Jacksonville's Fire Burned a Year.

J. H. Hooker, William Baker and a
reporter went to the ruins of the old
Mohawk block, and with a shovel dug
off the top of the pile of broken brick
and mortar. Three or four inches
from the top the place was warm and
smoke was seen to oome from the hole
dug. Digging still deeper each shovel
ful became hotter and hotter sa it was
taken out. Digging a little deeper,
red coals were found, and ss soon as
the breeze fanned it it biased. The
fire department was notified and a
stream of water was turned on.
Thus it was that one year after the
commencing of a fire the department
is called upon to put it out. This
place has blazed up several times
since the day of the fire, and the last
time, nbout- five months ago, the de
