To all the Mimily School Workers of MUmiurl :
Ibe t2d auuual couveutton ut the
issouri State Sunday School Associa
tion will meet iu Clinton on June 7th,
tHh and UUi, 17.
All Interested in such work should
be In attendance, as it is desired that a
more perfect system of organization be
perfected, so that every district, county
and township in the state be rlliciently
orgauized, to the end that every school
district be supplied with a live, work
ing Suuday school.
More work has been done, and more
progress made during the past year
than ever before lu the history of our
association, and jot there is still more
to be done.
This being a Mass Convention, no
formal appointment of delegates is nec
essary, yet. In order that every county
(a the slate be represented, we now re
quest that every organized couuty send
representatives, aud where no organi
zation exists, let the various Suuday
schools send some one.
This Is a matter of vast Importance,
and we earnestly request that represen
tatives from every county lu the state
be in attendance. An interesting and
instructive programme has been pre
pared, aud all who attend will be built
up and strengthened In the work. Our
Slate Association is uuder the Inter
national Association, from whence
come our luternalioual Lesson Series,
and will be represented at the conven
tion of the latter association, which
meets in Chicago the Urst week in June,
aud the delegates there will be expect
ed to report at our state convention.
Clinton will gladly welcome all Suu
day school workers, and extends a cor
dial Invitation to all such.
Arrangements are now being made
relative to reduced railroad fans, and
by writing to the undersigned, giving
the name of the road or roads over
which you will come, I will Inform you
as to the rates and conditions.
The press of the slate is earnestly re
quested to publish this call, thus giving
onr association their co-operation.
All who expect to atteud will please
forward their names to the uudersign
ed, not later than Juue 4.h, that ar
rangements for entertainment may be

The earlv history of the postal sdrvlce
between this country and its planta
tions" across the Atlantic Is curious'
and interesting. In the first attempt to
establish such a sVrvice it was proposed
that the packet boats should set sad
from tho Isle of Wight. On the 25th of
I'ebruary, 1703, the Lords of Trade re
ported to the Karl of Nottingham oa a
proposal made by Sir Jeffrey Jeffrey a
for establishing a regular service of
packet boats lietweeu that Island and
Now York. The lords oonferred with
Jeffreys and learned the exact nature
of bis proposals, which were to place an
the line tw-o ships, for sailing or row.

ing fourteen pins aud a crew ot forty
men. One ol these slupe would, be
said, be ready to pact'' a few days
after entering into an agreement, and
sail direct to Sew York, remain there
thirty days and theu -return. The near
packet was (o start two months after
tho first. Jeffreys reserved the right
of taking passengers aud fifty tons
uf mcrchaiidrse- on each voyage. For
enumeration he asked the sum of 30
a month, and stipulated that the ship
should receive "effectual protection."
The act of 1710 gives us a curious In
sight into one ot tho most frequent
causes of delay in the ronveyaucn of
letters from one part of America to
another. This was the rapacity of the
ferrymen iu levying black-mail on the
post-boys, so to speak, notwithstanding;
that the ferries were to hare been free
for the post. So it was enacted that
any delay on a ferryman's part of a
longer time than halt an hour should
be punished by a line of i. By the
act uf 1710 an Increase in the postage
rate was made aud the following scale
fixed, so far as concerned Now York;
for a single" letter, one shilling;
double," two shillings, and trvhle,"
three shillings; a letter of au ounce
weight being carried for the modest
sum of four shillings. The postage to
New York remaiued at the same ex
orbitant rate for years. Thus It hap
pened that when in 17tSQ a eertain
American divine sent to a friend at
Lambeth two tracts uf bis own ouo
