Tlio Post Oliieo I)e:irlinci:t of tlio
United States Government was organ
ized in 178!) on a model of tlio like do
luulment in the, colonial Government,
l'lui first sehedulo of rates, which was
established hy the law which organized
the Post Ollieo, was as follows: Tor
every letter consisting of one piece of
paper for any distance not exceeding
40 miles, 8 cents; for any distance not
exceeding 110 miles, ten cents; not ex
ceeding l.W miles, 1 21 cents; not ex
e.eedin'!i0U miles, 17 cents; not exceed
ing oOO miles, '.'0 cents; any distance
over miles, '.'.") cents. Thcsu rale
were held in force till 1810, wlien they
wero changed without changing tlio
awkward unit of mail matter. Tlio
rato that went into effort in lHlrt was
established after a strong demand by
tlio people for reduction. It made tho
charge for a single letter carried not to
exceed 30 miles, tij cents; not to exceed
80 miles, 10 cents; not to exceed I.'jO
miles, 12 J cents; not to exceed 400
miles, 1H j cents; and for anv distance
over 4W miles, 2.r cents. The unit of
charge was one sheet or piece of paper.
There were no envelopes at that time.
A letter was so written on a iiioeo o
paper that one side of one pail of it
was left blank. When folded tills
blank side became the back of tlio let
ter, on which tho address was written.
To write, fold, seal and address a letter
properly in what looks to us now ns
the jirimitivo days of eorrespondenco
required more ingenuity than It does
now to pack a Hummer's wardrobe for
a trip to the country. Tho charge for
postage being on tho Hinglo piecoof
paper without reference k its weight,
caro was taken by voluminous letter
writers and more people wrote long
letters then than now to uso as large
a sheet ns they conveniently could.
Tho uso of tho mail for sending com
niercial paper was very expensive, be
cause each check, draft or bill on a
separate piceo of paper was charged an
extra postage up to three of them.
Tho regulation was that a letter of two
pieces of paper was charged double
rales, ono of three pieces triple rates,
and one of four pieces quadruple rate,
( provided the wfiole weighed an ounce,
f tho whole weighed less than an ounce
only three raUs were charged. A let
ter containing four or more pieces of
paper, and weighing an ounce or more,
was charged at a Miiglo rate for every
quarter ounce. liy this rate a letter
containing three pieces of paper - lliat
is, tho advisement and two checks
sent over 400 miles, would cost 75
cents; sent 30 miles or under, 18 rent
Such a loiter bent from New York to Al
bany would cost 37 cents. If It wai
composed of the advisement and threo
checks, tho cost to Albany would be 60
cents. An,, 'article not a nuwspapcr,
tnagazlno or pamphlet sent in tlio mai
was charged at letter rates that Is, one
letter rate for every quarter ounce.

Afler a dinner at Holland house, the
other day, at which many of the gnosis
were authors, a well-known "society"
man said to u friend In conlidnneoi "I

cannot now Imagine any ono desiring
to read a book after knowing its au

markable for a superabundance of wit,
has this week coolly adopted from an
American journal of caricature a joke
at the expenso of tho fashionable jti it
Ish snob. Ho remarks to an American
belle: "Aw! aw! It must be very un
pleasant for you Americans to bo gov
erned by people, aw, whom you wouldn't
ask tod'inner." To which she promptly
replies, "Well, not more so, perhaps,
than for you In England to bo governed

chardists, to scrape tlio rough bark from
tho old applo trees, has been contra

than good. The rough hark is a pro

of temperature. The benelit often claim

Two Boston ladles are the joint own
ers of a model, or "dummy," such us

nor coachman for the dummy the oili
er day, and, forgetting that ho was a
now band, tuorefv told him to drive
over to Mrs. H.'h and get MIhs (! race

gone about nn hour and a half, and
when berated by his mistress for the de

horses every step of the way for fear of
shaking the sick lady, "she seemed to
be so bad when they put her in."
There are eleven models submitted to
a Iloslon committee for a statue of The
odore Parker. Four represent him
seated, two or three aro busts or pedes
tals, and others aro groups variously
conceived. One of these represents
Mr. Parker standing on a pedestal,
while on either side aro two femalo lig
urcs iu classic drapery, personifying Re
ligion and Law. Another represents a
draped female (igure, with hand point
ing upward, standing beforo him -- the
design being a personification of Truth.
Still another shows Mr. Parker stand
ing with one arm on a book-rack and
the fingers of the other band turning the
leaves of a book, on which is inscribed
selected sentences from his own writ
ings. It is proposed to spend $10,000
on tfiis statue.
Tho daughter of Victor Hugo, who is
now fifty years old, is an object of com
miseration. About eighteen years ago
she fell in lovo with a naval officer who
had some property in England and also
estates in Trinidad. Her friends were
opposed to her marriage, but as she
was of ago sho carried her point, and
the newly married couple proceeded to
tho West Indies. After a few years of
life together the Commodore abandoned
bis wife, whose previous eccentricity
under this blow rapidly developed into
insanity. She is proud of her father's
reputation, and Ins visits to the asylum
aro red letter days to her. Slw dresses
like a young girl and is never violent,
but, on the contrary, quite pleasant
She rea'tfi, sings, talks and acts ration

A young man in Washington, who
writes exquisite verses but is almost
starving for lack of ronunierative em
ployment, and who for a long time has
been trying in vain to get a place in a
Government bureau, the other day got
a friend to write to "(Jail Hamilton,"
invoking her supposed influence in his
behalf. Some of the young man's ver
ses were inclosed in tho letter, as a sam
ple of his literary ability. Miss Dodge,
disclaiming the possession of any "in
lluenec," replied in a serio-comic vein,
in part as follows: "I have ordered
two departments to semi me a first
class office in fifteen minutes. If both
come 1 shall lie embarrassed. If your
young gentleman could only take caro
of a horse nnd a garden as well as he
writes verses, I could employ him my
self for the summer, and pay him bet
ter than poetry, alas! But no! I shall
have to cat hard corn and wilted let
luoo all summer for want of a gardener,
while your young man will have noth

Among the Albany families which
have lived longest on Capitol Hill ure
those of MeNab and dimming. About
thirty live years ago two young men be
longing to the two families, who had
long been intimate friends, and as full
of spirit and activity as most persons of
their age, retired into life-long seclu
sion, each in his own house, apparently
in pursuance of a solemn compact.
McXahdied about live years ago. Once
in a winie me neignoors caugut a
glimpse of an old man walking up ami
lown in the garden behind his house,
but he never was seen on the street.
dimming is still living in mysterious
retirement. Many years ago a neigh
bor, looking out of" the scuttle of his
house, saw the hermit's head bob in at
his own scuttle n few rods away, but
since then no one outsidu of tlio family
has seen John dimming. His brother
William, a grain merchant, told tho

of his strange existence.
Parasites that Thrive on Doad Trees.
There are narasiles. so called, which
flourish just as well upon a dead tree
as any other support, thus proving they
arc epipniics and not truo parasncs.
Ihe roots adhere to the, bark of trees
and do not penetrate! to rob the life
blood of others. Not content with this
existence, oilier ulants of this strange
clas draw to themselves atom afler at
om of dust and mold, so that thev wrap
around their roots and their elevated
perches handful after handful of earth,
and slill gorging as tlio appetite grows
stronger, they share the common iaie
of glultony and come toppling down,
thus making room for others, noen in
their high seats among the trees, the
effect of this horde of parasites and air
planls is always peculiar in tho ex
treme. The parasites aro often beauti
ful, yet their presence occasionally de
tracts Iroin the beauty ot a tree, ami mo
tliiiiL1 erows ludicrous when von ealeli
sight of sonic huge plant just balancing
itself, with seeming difficulty on a loose

imagination to say, as he stands gazing
at the parasites: "All these once grew
in their native bed, low al the foot of
these tall trees. Then emtio some geni

high among the limbs." There they

The Way the Alligator roods.
Tho alligator is a lazy brute, nnd in
stead of hunting for something to oat
ho lets his victuals hunt for hull. That
is, ho lies with his great mouth open,
apparently dead. Noon a beetle crawls
into it, then a fly, then several gnats,
und a colony of mosquitoes. A little
later a lizard will cool himself under? tho
shade of the upper jaw. Then a few
frogs will hop up to catch the mosqui
toes. Then more mosquito,., ami o-ntits
light on the frog. Finally a whole vil
lage of insects and reptiles nettle, f0wu
for nn afternoon plenie. Then all at
once there Is an earthquake. The bl"

TI1K BUIIMliK TO SANTA F1C, NEW
Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest city
iu thu United Stales. It has reached the
end of its first third of a thousand years
its tertio-iuillemal period. The Tertio-Mil-lennial
Celebration and Mining and Indus
trial Exposition, which will bo inaugurated
hero on the 2d of July and close on the M
of August, will bo an event of grout histo
rical us well us practical importance to tho
country at lurge. It is intended to com
memorate tho three hundred and thirty
third anniversary of the Spanish settlement
of tho place.
Which will constitute tho practical pint of
the celebration, will he an epitoiuo of the
mineral, agricultural, horticultural, stock
and general industrial resources and capa
bilities of the Teiritury. Those, therefore,
who aro interested in either mining, agri
culture or stock-raising will have a good op
portunity to visit New Mexico this season,
as the low tare will be u great inducement
to make tho trip. The development of the
mines of this vast region has hut begun,
yet in the past year the proportionate in
crease in the output of ore was greater than
in any other Statu oi Territory. New Mex
ico's showing at the mining exposition held
at Denver last season showed, more clearly
than anything else, the vastness of its min
It has been the general belief heretofore
that agriculture iu New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error.. At the
exposition will be seen samples of all sorts
of fiuils and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
the soil of the Territory can be made to
yield immensely, und there is no pursuit
more remunerative than that of farming.
Agricultural products, of ail kinds, bring
liighpric.es upon a ready maiket, always
accessible in the growing mining towi.i,
nnd the cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle and sheep country, too,
New Mexico cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and mesas afford fine grazing
grounds for countless herds. A3 the cele
bration at Santa re will be the means
drawing a larger number of people into the
Territory than usual, owing to the cheap
fare, an opportunity will be ollered those
who may be interested in stock-raising
Besides the pructical, tho Tertio-Millenial
will embrace many features the most novel
and roiiiHiitic. For instance, three days
the 18th, 19th, and 20th of July will be
devoted to the presentation of historic
scenes. These will represent the pciiod
which has transpired since the settlement
of the city, each day to represent a century
of history and progress. The three civ:li
zafions will also be represented that
which existed at the time of the coming of
the conquerors, that w hich the Spaniards
bioii!,t with them and that winch followed
the Americau occupation of 1810. These
icprcschtutioDS will be illustrated by caval
cades in costume, indicative of the several
listiiictivo expeditions into New Mexico
and tho sui rounding territory. There will
also be numerous tableaux, the whole com
bining to make one of the most novel and
interesting exhibitions ever witnessed in
this country. There will, iu addition, be
various Indian games, races aud dances by
the Pueblos, descendants of tho ancient in
habitants of the Territory; ambuscades and
sham fights by the Zunis, with exhibitions
ol their pecuuur rites und ceremonies, one
of which will be a primitive dunce repre
senting the gods and heroes of their folk
lore mythology; native Mexican games,
lances and juggling; original Aztuc dunces,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will
take part; various Mexican sports and the
grand fandango; war und other peculiar
lances by the Mcscalero and
Jicarillu Apaches; exhibitions by Mexican
vucqiieros in throwing the lariat;
mounted tournament, in cos
t times ot three centuries Hgo;
the San Domingo and Suiidia feasts, and
other peculiar and interesting ceremonies
which would lake much space and time to

Thu rate for the round trip from Kansas
City and Atchison, including stop-off both
ways at the Las Vegas Hot Springs, is only
40, while the lure from all eustem points
is comparatively low. The Las Vegas Hot
Springs aro among the most celebrated in
the world, and a cool ami comlortable re
sort for the hot season. There is every in
ducement to go to New Mexico this sum
mer and it will bo taken advantage of by
thousands who will improve this opportun
ity to study, under tho best possible con
ditions, the resources of the Territory and
investments, and also to enjoy for tho time
the most quaint and romatic spot in all our
country. It is an opportunity to see the
Southwest the coming country which
ought not to be lost by any who have any
ambition to avail themselves of the un
equalled advantages there ollered for en
gaging in mining, agriculture, fiuit irrow
li g, stock raising, or merchandise. Theso
