Funny Happenings at the Poslofficr.
The vicissitudes of a postmaster's life
are many and varied. A single day's entry
in I he diary of one of these public
servants would be reading;
and as local interest in our buperb post-office
is now at flood tide, wo print tho
following humorous interview:
To be a successful postmaster, two
things are absolutely necessary. First,
he must do a positive cash business, and
second, he must keep his temper. "Just
stamp that letter and I will pay you the
next time I come in," must be met
but firmly, with the answer that
you cannot c dit. It is a hard thing to
do, bnt if yon would have your account
balance properly at the end of the quarter
you had better observe the rule. You
will find the public not very sympathetic
along this line, but you can't afford to
let the public run your business for you.
Then again, you will find that your
will be sorely taxed, and it will be
necessary to keep a strict guard overii.
You must be kind and courteous, and,
above all things, treat everybody alike.-.
Don't smile- nt the w ell dressed and scowl
at the ragged urchin. Don't "bust" your
suspender buttons off in your efforts to
wait.on Mrs. Kiilglove and then turn up
your nose at Mrs. Calico. It requires
constant watching to keep from being n.
"respectnr of persons," but vou must not
do it. 'The rascal is as ranch entitled to
his mail as the most saintly clergyman.
You w ill uIbo find it necessary to read
one's mind, or to withstand the shock of
an earthquake. While some sweet angel
with flaxen hair and a skimmed milk
complexion will walk in and look at you
for a quarter of an hour as dumb as an
oyster, another fair Venus will call for
her mail as if .she was trying to talk to
some one on the other side of the ocean.
Hut vou must keep 3-our face straight if
it gives Ton the lockjaw. In order that
you may have some idea of the daily routine
of tho office, 1 will give you a little
rehearsal. "Any mai! here for auy of
Mr. Gizzleweed's folkb?" "No ma'am.
Please close the door!" '"Will a 1-cent
stamp carry that letter to Red House?"
"Any writing in it?" "Yes, but is
not pealed." '"It will take two cents."
"Well, I won't send it, thcu." "Close
the door, please!" "Any letter here for
Jim Bumper?" "No." "Well, there
ought to be, fer I writ to that feller
mor!! a mouth ago." "They had more
nail than the train could haul and they
had to leave part of it ; guess it will be
along in a week or two." "All right'
I'll come in next week for it," "Come
back and c1om that door !"
"Cnn I get a postage order here?"
"Yes, come back to the desk. There,
fill out your application." "How must I
write it?" 'Tut the amount on Fifteen,
please!" (You hand out the mail
in box fifteen.) "This all?" "Yes,
shut the door 1" You go back and issue
the money order. "Don't you give a
feller a receipt?" "No, sir." "Well, I
sent some money once before and got a
receipt." ''perhaps you sent it by registered
letter?" "Yes, that's what it
was. Can't I change it and send it that
way 7" "No. This is perfectly safe."
"Well, I'll bet you don't get mo caught
next time. I don't believe that way is
safe." "Please pull to the door !'
"A dime's worth of stamps, please!"
(You hand out the stamps.) "Close the
You hurry back to the desk to finish
entering the order. Jnst as you are
about to finish your pen catches in the
paper, kicks like a mule and literally
rains ink all over tho page. You get
out your knife and scratch and gougo
and uruiuble, and finally close the book
leaving the page looking like a map of
the interior of Africa.
"Have you inade'up your mail yet?"
"Yes, ma'am." "Can't you undo it and
put in this letter for me?" "No, haven't
time." "Oh, its so inijiortant ! It just
must go! I promised to send it on this
mail. Can't you stick it under the strap
for me?" "Can't violate the law that
way." "My, I'm sorry!"" "Please,
ma'am, close the door!"
"Is there a registered bundle here for
me?" 'There is a registered package
here for yon." 'Well. I want it."
"Come hark to the desk and nign for it."
"What must I write?" '"3ign jour
name on that line, there." (Signs her
name.) 'Would it hurt for me to opeii
it here?" "Certainly not." "Do you
get many of these things here at this
office ?" "Well, a few." "What do you
reckon is in this? It feels like money,
don't it? Wonder who could be sending
me money? If it's ten dollars
won't I be happy? Well, T won't open it
till I get home!" 'Close that door
During all this conversation you are
trying to sort out and make up the mail,
but in spite of yourself you forget the
number of stamps counted and you
must count them again, and during ali
this time ou are selling stamps to one,
changing money for another, handing
ont mail to another, and if you don't
come to tho conclusion that life is a
failure, vou will prove to he an extraor
dinary fellow. t
Rut the worst person to deal with is
the one who orders you not to give her
mail to anybody else. After receiving
such an order, it won't be threo days be
fore tho same person will tell somebody
to call for her mail, and not having
an Order sicned by her you refuse to
give out the mail. Then you may make
up your mind to have a "round" as
soon as she can get to the office. Nobody
but a postmaster ever knows Low
many people there are who belong to
this class, and they cause more trouble
to a postmaster than all other classes
The above are only a few samples of
what occurs every day, and to be a good
postmaster and please the people, require
any amount of tact and energy,
and calls for a memory made of the very
best material. When some person steps
to the window and asks if yon keep

lauirliing outright, but yon must keep a
straight lace and look as serious as a
country girl at another's weddiug. Bui

SAGE OBSERVATIONS FROM THE LEXINGTON
It is a singular coincidence that every
bank defaulter within the past three
months was an "honest money" advocate
during the recent national campaign.
Of course their political views
had nothing to do with their money
but their money morals may have
had something p do with "their political
In this state and throughout all the
South where the name of O. P. Alford
has for thirty years stood as (lie Bynonyiu
of honorable and intelligent thrift, the
announcement of his apsignment for the
enefit of .his creditors will make a profound
sensation and mark an epoch in
the political situation. That financial
policythat can bring about or permit
the closing.outof real estate and personal
property that represents nearly a half
million of dollars, made by honest industry
and judiciously invested, to satisfy
that which represented less than
$40,000 indebtedness when Grover Cleveland
made John G. Carlisle Secretary of
the Treasury, is vicious, if not intentionally
cniniual. Such surrenders to the'
inevitable will serve as object lessons to
the people and educate them to demand
a change, and if not change, then a revolution.
-Mr. Watterson seems to have said somewhere
that the nation needs a new birth
in morals, and it made a sensation. The
people have known this for thirty yean
and they tried to give it thnt new birth
bv electing Win. J. Bryan President.
That new birth will come at no distant
day. It may be by the Crcsariau method,
but it will come, and that on the
double quick should the new administration
not prove freer from political
and financial corruption than the one
now agonizingly drawing to a close. It
was not necessary for Mr. Watterson to
go to Europe to learn this iuijmrtant
truth. The American Monte Carlo, ten
miles equore on the Potomac furnishes
not only the text, but the argument for
the text sufficient to bring conviction to
the mind of any man, not a Pharaoh in
The Democracy of Fayette county can
get together on honorable terms if they
will. Let them agree as did the old man
and his wife, who disputed as to ahether
it a rat or a mouse that ran across
the floor in their presence, that neither
the word rat nor the word moue should
ever again be called in the house. Let
the gold rat and the silver mouse disappear
from local politics and the work will
have been done. Fayette county and the
city of Lexington want honest and faithful
men in their office and the way to
get them is to put in honest Democrats,
regardless of their view son national questions.
