Free Rural Delirtrj
The Warrouton Index says
" The salary of *4O0 per annual given
to each carrier is awakening interest la
this change of mail service. The way
It is inaugurated seems as follows: IV
tition is sent to 1st 1' M Qeoetal He
sends to the territory a special agent
to survey the route and report If fa?
vorable, it is adopted and a bonded ap?
pointee sworn in. The carrier is ro
quired to make between l and 5 miles
per hour dailv, Hun lays tx opted, ac?
cording to condition of roads. The
farmers along a route provide boxes, at
their own expense easily accessible to
the carrier. Two farmers can unite in
one box at their own risk. F.very pa
tion puts stamps on his own letters or
money in the box Io pay for tho stamps
to be furnished by carrier. The Spirit
of tho Valley expects three separate
lines, covering 5;i miles, will be ruu to
and from Harrisonburg every day, after
June 1. '99, except Sunday The Spe?
cial agent recommending these lines
said to the editor id that paper that the
abolishment of small 4th rlnn poetof?
floes and contracts for star route ser?
vice, together with increased postal re?
ceipts would nearly equal salarios paid
carriers. To make good any defioit
Congress has appropri?t!
The free rural system near 1'pperville.
Fauquier county .is spoken of favorably
?'As to increase of Federal patronage,
the star routes are let to the lowest bid?
ders without regard to party affiliation,
whereas the rural carriers are appointed
by 1st Assist. P. M General, la pro?
portion as the new system i- adopted
this change will be neogoized We
have no information that tho Depart?
ment is intluenced by party considera?
tions at this time, the lines in R ?k
inghani being nwmmeuded by 0 n
"We have this to say to aspira
rural carrier poaitlons If you expect
favorable answers to applioati
will have to bustle, as the system will
be suspended as soou as it is evident
to the Department that the |
serve fund is fully covered. "
The Strangest Mosonlc Lodge Room In tue
The sixteenth session of tho M .
Grand Lodge of Arizona was unique in
the history of latter-day Masonry. Its
mystic rites and ceremonies were per?
formed in a temple of great beauty
and magnificent dimensions, in the
building of which the sound of haiiimnr
and trowel was never heard Two hun?
dred feet below the surface of the earth,
at the end of a half-mile of windings
through narrow tunnels into the v-ry
heart of a great limeatone and porphyry
mountain, was the wounderful temple
?a cavern of large dimensions and ex?
quisitely adorned by stalactites beyond
the power of man to imitate
Two years ago some dust-begrimed
miners in the upper levels of the Cop?
per Queen mine, at Bisbee, Arizona,
drifting their way into tho dark depths
of earth, came suddenly upon this cav?
ern. In the light of their tallow dips
it seemed like a vision into earth's in?
ferno. There were the many-hued car?
bonized lime drippings of centuries,
within a limitless rift that was shadowy
and weird. The cave has since been
seen by people from many parts of the
world, and it is said to be one of the
most beautiful subterranean caverns
yet discovered. For the Masons the
winding passages were brilliantly illu?
minated by electricity, and within the
main chamber itself, which seats a
thousand persons, there were innumer?
able lamps and an electric "G" and
other symbols? Leslie's Weekly.
I was seriously afflicted with a cough
for several years, and last fall had ?
more severe cough than ever before. I
used many remedies without receiving
much relief, and being recommended
to try a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Kemedy, by a friend, who, knowing
me to be a poor widow, gave it to me,
I tried it,and with the most ?ratifying
results. The first bottle relieved
very much and the second bottle has
absolutely cured me. I have not had
as good health for twenty years Ke

From The Newark Advert i-or
A number of members of the ITih
Kegiment of New York, which com?
mand served in Porto Kico utider Gen.
Miles, are organizing an American
colony to occupy Yieque Island, south
of Porto Kico, and raise sheep and grow
fruit there. They will take portable
houses and agricultural tools with them
and will put up a hotel for winter visi?
tors. That's Yaukee entorprise. A
considerable number of American volun?
teers will remain in the Philippines and
grow up with the oountry, and Cuba
will be an attraction for many others
when conditions there become favora?
Bad management keeps more people
in poor circumstances than any other
one cause. To be successful one must
look ahead and plan ahead so that when
a favorable opportunity presents itself
be is ready to take advantage of it. A
little forethought will also save much
expense and valuable time A prudent
and careful man will keep a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy in the house, the
shiftless fellow will wait until necessity
compels it and then ruin his best horse
going for a doctor and have a big doctor
bill to pay, besides ; one pays out SB
cents, the other is out a hundred dollars
and then wonders why his neighbor is
getting richer while ne is getting poorer.
