as will be seen by his adver
Reader, did you ever see
that long iron crane of an ar
rangement sticking out of the
side of a mail car? That's a
mail snatcher. It's the only
thing ever invented that is
meaner than ihe man that bor
rows your paper before you
read it yourself and never re
turns it. It's a big thing though!
we know it is, tor we saw it il
lustnled in Harper's Weekly.
The one in Harper's Weekly
caught the mail sack every
lime. It's ju3t like the one on
the mail train on the M. & C.
Ii R. only the latter punches
the sacks oil in the mud. The
mail going west is carried on
the St. Louis Express, which
goes by McAr'Jiur like a
streak of lightning. The agent
throws oil' the sack (or thin
point, and punches the one he
should take up over into Ihe
mud with his snatcher. He
didn't punch it fair one day,
the sack got tangled up in the
snatcher, broke it of and both
went into the mud. The agent
didn't lack much of being with
them. There was only one
thing prevented; he wasn't
repaid, and it would have
been a violation of Ihe rules
oT the department lor Ihe
snatcher lo have carried him.
But lln'8 snatcher is a great ar
rangment, und expedites Ihe
transmission of mail wonder
fully. Ii any of nur re-ders
west ot this point bhould get

Seriously though, while these
