SOME VALUABLE INFORMATION.

A second-class Postelllce is ene whero
the receipts from sales of stamps nnd box
rents for the four quarters ending March
31st of each year which is technically
called the "Allowance Year" de net
fall below ?8.000.
If the receipts for the time stated fall
even one cent below $8,000, the ofrice
belongs te the third class, and the salary
of the Postmaster, the allewance for
clerk hlre and the ether allowances that
enable the eftlec te. give the public geed
sorvlce, are curtailed accordingly.
Prier te 1800, the receipts of the Mnys
vllle PdstefU.ce, from sales of stumps and
box rents, had net exceeded, in round
numbers, $8,000, and the salary of the
Postmaster was $2,000.

It was. the desire of Mr. Duvj's that the
citizens , of Maysville should at once
secure the benefits they were entitled te,
and ut t'.e last July meeting of the City
Council he prepared and had presented
an ordinance for the miming of streets
and numbering of houses.
This measure was opposed by the moss mess
back element, nud the ordinance wus
referred and deferred, much te the dis
gust of progressive citizens, eue able
member of the Council saying in sneering
tones that he "didn't think there was
much chance of Maysville ever getting
letter carriers." However, after seyeral
months delay the ordinance was passed
and the numbering done; the affairs of
the Postmaster .were found te be in first
class shape, the result showing that
every cent that he was charged with was
"present and accounted for," and thnt
he had 81 68 te spare! There was no
delay in securing permission for the
erection of letter-boxes, and in addition
the Electric Rail way Company generously
agreed te transport the carriers free of
charge when they were en duty; the
city was divided into three delivery dis
tricts and maps matle thereof.
