WabrWoto, Veer if. Tho subject o(
postal telegraphy has, provoked considerable
private discussion among members of
Congress during thtf past week. Tlio most
popular bill yot Introduced looking to the
establishment of a postal telegraph system
appears to be that of .Representatives Anderson,
of Kansas, referred to in tlioso
previous' to its introduction in the
House. The act approved July 24, lbiK),
entltlod "An act to aid in the construction
of telegraph linos and to
secure to the Government the Use
of the Karrie for patrol, military and
other pttrgbsojt, anymgjother things,
that all' telegraphic communications
betwoon ho sqvordl departments' of the
Government of the United States and.thoii
ofllcors and agents, shall in their transmission
over the lines of any said companies
have prjijijUy over all other business, and
shall p4 wvt at'rat3i to be annually fixed
by the Postmaster General "Thisclauso,"
said Mr. Anderson, "is the only keynote'to
any bllL I think that the great difficulty
in obtaining legislation on this subject,
heretofore, has been on account of
the largo appropriation of money
required to begin the work of construction.
My bill obviates any- necessity for the ap
proprhUion of a single dollar, and provides
that tlio lines shall bo built with monoy derived
from the sale of $0,000,000 of tlireo
per cent bonds. JSvery pne who has oiam
inod this'subjoct knows that within a period
of twenty years tho profits of a system of
postal telegraphy will build lines, not only
to every city, but to every place in the
United.Btates.whora there is a fourth iltus
postoulce, and the bonds which it is proposed
to issuo are td be redeemable at thu
option of tho Government in ten or thirty
years. This plan, in my Judgment,
will secure tho establishment for
the Government of a completo telegraph
servicojjfithout jho expenditure of a dollar
outside of tho amount realized upon tho
sole oT the $0,000,000 bonds." Mr. Antler-son's
bill authorizes tho Postmaster Gonoinl
to make connection with the lines belong
ing to any "railroad or telegraph coin
pany " which has received a grant of public
lands, bonds or credit from the United
States, and domand that all " postal telegraph
messages " shall be transmitted. oei

by the law-of 1800 for the transmission of

Tlireo Particular Points.
Point the First. Brown's Iron Bitters is not an intoxicating
compound. It is a tonic medicine, not a drink. It is a skillfully
compounded preparation made to restore strength and health ; not a
beverage to be sold in bar-rooms and taverns.
Point the Second. Brown's Iron Bitters is free from everything
injurious. The most delicate ladies and the most enfeebled
infants may use it with perfect safety and with great advanta e.
VVhile it is powerful in its remedial agency, it is gentle in its operation,
restoring wasted strength and imparting robust health in the
most efficient manner.
Point the Third. Brown's Iron Bitters is made by the
Brown Chemical Company of Baltimore, a long established hoube,
whose reputation is well known to the business world and the general
community. There is no risk in buying such a medicine. 6
