CHARITABLE FIRM.
Gives Away 150 Suits of Clothes I
and $150 in Cash.
The E. 1). Horton Trunk Company
conceived an ingenious method of dis- j
pensing charity and advertising itself at ,
the same time, Thursday, Friday and
Saturday. The company got up a
unique parade on each of these days, in '
which were fifty unemployed men. j
clothed in newworking clothes furnished
by the company, each four of whom
cairied a trunk marching through the
streets. At the close of the parade each
day the fifty men were presented the
clothes they wore and one dollar in cash
each. Thus the company gave out 150
suits of clothes and $150 in money. The
parades were very catching, haviug
clowns and bands of music in them.

Prevent the Grip
Dr. Cyrus Edson, of the New York
Board cf Health, says that to prevent
the Grip you should avoid exposure
in inclement weather, arid keep your
strength up, your blood in good con
dition and your digestive organs in
I regular action. The tonic and alter
ative effects of Hood's Sarsaparilla
so happily meet the last three condi
tions, that with the protection given
hy this medicine you need not fear
the Grip. Many people confidently
reiy upon Hood's Sarsaparilla for pro
tection fiom the Grip, Fevers, etc.
Hood's Sarsaparilla
Is an inexpensive medicine, ana a
single bottle may save you many dol
lars in doctors' bills and much suffer
ing. Truly an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure. Be sure to
cot Hood's.

There is one day in all the year when
even the calloused allow the cockles of
their hearts to warm •up with the un
selfish desire to make some one besides
themselves happy. This season: is the
Yuletide— the time when', old "-Saint
Nick, in his sleigh laden with gifts and
drawn by the fleet-footed reindeer, an-,
nihilates distance, and visits every
civilized quarter of the globe, with
bounties tor the rich and poor. In mod
ern times old Santa Claus does much of
his work by proxy, and since tin* in
auguration of railroads he finds in them
a powerful and spe.-dy auxiliary to
wards the carrying out of liis phil
anthropic schemes.

SCENE AT THE- POSTOFFICE.
their admirable facilities the express ]
companies represented in St. Paul are j
able to reach out all over Uncle Sam's
broad domain, not only to the populous
met/opolis, but to the remotest hamlet
as ; well. ~ Yesterday afternoon' „ the :
• Globe's special artist and' a reporter
made what in Western parlance is
known as a "round-up" of the various
express offices.
Edging their way unostentatiously
through the busy thorouohfares full of
happy people ail weighted down with
their holiday lords, they entered the
portal the Northern Pacific- Expre s
company, on .Jackson street. Here no
one certainly was idle. Agent New
comb cheerfully replied that business
was nearly as good as in former years,
though small packages seemed to ba
the rule. He said there w*s no falling
off in the number of packas.es, but they
were generally of less weight. He
stated that his company had had their
heaviest day's business Friday. ..The
holiday rush with his company began
Tuesday. He told, with much gusto, of
how one man industriously tried to seal
up a package with a marking brush in
lieu of sealing wax, but had to finally
give it up as a bad job. _■._.."-__
Pushing on further down Jackson, the
Globe's missionaries entered the city
office of the United States Express com
pany. Here, too, was a busy scene.
Tne employes stopped long enough to
state that business was much better
than had been anticipated. The receipts
there were very good, and the outgoing
shipments fairly heavy.
At the American Express company's
office everything was going off like
clockwork, and the merry chink of
money told that it, too, was "in the
swim" for business. The employes
hurrying to and fro. the bundles, laree
and small, that were beins brought in
showed that this company was not
asleep.
Mr. Irvine, as usual. was omnipresent,
I and the "old reliable" was demonstrate
i ing that it knew how to handle a Crist-
I mas rush. .
AT Till J -XPI.E 8 IFFICE.
The Great Northern Express com
pany's employes showed that they were
earning their salaries. It was there
learned that, to accommodate the gift
giving and gilt-receiving public, the
employes were kept busy "from 0 a. in.
of one day to 3 a. m. of the next day,"
as one of them said in a way that showed
that he was fairly tired out Here, 100,
came the answer that small packages
were the rule-
The Adams Express compauy report
ed an exceedingly good business. Here
the incoming grists of express matter
were reported as heavy and that outgo
ing as good. With this company Thurs
day was the big day for business.
Mr. Owen, the energetic agent of the
Adams, secured a large storeroom on
Jackson street, near Fifth, tor his iv-
coming packages, and with a host of
employes and numerous delivery wag
ons was ''hustling out" the incoming
presents at a rapid rate so that every
,one receiving a Merry Christmas from
his company would have it in time.
By this time the (.lobe's pair be
came decidedly interested and went
down to the shipping offices of the
above comuany. A busier throng or a
more heterogeneous mass of merchan
dise could hardly be imagined. Every
thing imaginable, from Christmas trees
to beer kegs, bundles and boxes, bales
L and "crates, were to be seen at every
hand. In the midst of such a quantity
of 7 goods the excellent and methodical
; methods of handling were peculiarly
J noticeable. If anybody misses getting
j their presents this year* the blame can
hardly be laid at the door of the ex
! press companies or their faithful and
untiring servitors.
To sum up. the Christmas express
j business for 1893 is much better than
j had been thought possible. Although
'not equaling that of 1892 in volume, it
has proved satisfactory. The business
of . IS'J2 was phenomenal— abnormally
large, in fact. Conservative estimates
!pa the business of 1593 almost up to
( t ie avenge of other years, in spite of
: the. hard times. With a prosperous
! year it is projable that 1394 will eclipse
' all predecessors. To accommodate all
patf-iii-*, it was learned yesterday that
all 'less companies have decided to
keen th *ir offices open today and Mon
day, so that none need be disappointed.
j At the Postoffice.
!--(,*' The packages received and sent out
:of this office for Christmas remem-
I brances will amount in bulk to about 50
j per cent as much as last year," said As
' sistant Postmaster P. O'Brien yesterday.
■ The further statement was made that
the falling off in the incoming packages
: is about equivalent to those sent out
I from the office. Mr. O'Brien said that
j he attributed the falling off to the econ
! omy of people forced by hard times.
-■■••.,'
The falling off also reaches the registry
and money order departments. Ob
servation shows that the people wl o
have been in the habit of sen* -
ing. money to friends in the old country
are. n as liberal as in former years.

A LOADED CAKIIIER.
For -example, the working girls and
men who used to send $25 to friends iv
tlieir mother countries are now sending
smaller sums of Sl or S3. Last year it
was. necessary to take men from other
parts of the postofiice and put them in
the registry and money-order depart
ments to aid in handling the packages,
but this year that is not necessary, as
the regular force is able to almost keep
up with the work. Last year, even with
i the increased force, there was a delay
jof two or three days in handling the
i packages. There was then also a great
' rush in the postoffice proper, and it was
impossible to send out matter promptly
for the reason that no extra force was
allowed by the department. * ■". "
). There is a great amount of business
being; done tliis year, however. There
are thousands of packages being sent
out, making the mails heavier by a
" couple of carloads than usual. The
packages are in a better condition than
usual, and there are not so many
bundles received that are wrapped
in flimsy packages and poorly marked
with addresses iv lead pencil. Yet
there ars_some packages received that
cannot stasd the usage, and the ad
dresses, and in many iustances tne
wrappers are so destroyed that nothing
else can be done but send the matter to
the dead letter office. In many cases
large bundles are taken from the stores,
where they are carelessly wrapped
v flimsy paper, and they soon get
badly scattered in the mails by the
nuriied handling they received. Then
some of the bundles are so large that
they cannot be otherwise than crushed
by beiug crowded into mail pouches,
especially when tons of other matter
are piled upon them. There are numer
ous cases where unmailable matter is
taken to the office, and it is hard to im
press upon people that the mails are not
suited to carry baby carriages, flowers
and plants, and other articles that
would be not only cumbersome, but
strictly out of place iv one of Uncle
Sam's mail pouches.
Tne carriers are having a busy time
of it, and go out with their pouches
jammed full, and bundles tied all over
them with strings and ropes. They are
also required to make extra trips, aud
work early, and late to cover their
rounds. To say that the carriers are
worn oat during the holiday season is
but a mild way of stating their troubles.
Ou Monday the carriers will make but
one delivery, but the amount of matter
comlug in will make it sure that they
will have to-work all day to get through
with their work. -The money order and
.registry departments will be open to 10
a. in. on Christinas day. -.

in relation to preparations ■„

.'tio^to.be held in St.Paul in .August,
.ljß9£. Attention was called to the fact __
that the; national association organ
'izixl in ; .1892, about 603 delegates meet
* ins, at .. Nashville . for the - : purpose. .
= The delegates „ were representative
brokers and agents dealing in real estate .
from all parts of the. country. In. Oc
tober of the same year another meetings
was held at Buffalo, about 600 delegates,-.
accompanied by fully 3,000 'visitors.: at?
tending. At this meeting St. Paul was
represented by a membership ;of about
fifteen, and succeeded in | securing the.
next meeting for this city, but, in view-;
of the world's real estate : congress at-
Chicago and the unfavorable., times,, the
regular meeting, which otherwise would •_
have been held at St. Paul in August,
1893, was postponed one year. ...-,... . ;
■ j Mr. Lamb stated that he came now to
the city, in the interest of the associa
tion, and in relation to the convention.*
He was employed by the national as
sociation in the interest of- its member
ship, and was how just .from Mitchell,
S. D., where a meeting of the agents
and brokers of that state had been held, .
at which the meeting at St. Paul was
fully and favorably discussed. ?;\ He
should attend a similar meeting at Den
ver early in January, and should be
Working or traveling constantly in- the
interest of the association. , He asked
that.St. Paul furnish him with a leaflet
or small . pamphlet which ,he could
use in connection : with ■ his ° work '-
of exciting interest or attracting* atten
tion to the association and its general
purposes,, but .more especially to. St.-
Paul and the meeting to be. held here.
He believed that instead of 500 or 000
. delegates, : such as they had had at
Nashville and Buffalo, they would have
an attendance of four or five times that,
and a proportionate increase : in attend
.anceof.-yisitors. He believed that it
.was ; wise to invite the Western states
.accustomed to booming to come here
with their products of cereals, their
..ores'; and other features on which they
rely to boom their interests, and'con
vert the convention' into a sort of
exposition of .Western .interests. It
would interest., and benefit, the
people engaged . in doing ' it, and
meet wth encouragement from '. the
states or localities . interested and
from the railroads and Other great in
terest which may be promoted by the'
..development of these ' new countries,
iiwhafch have already ' done so much
jtow'-ird building up St. Paul and other .
-trade centers. He delicately reminded
vibe exchange that their membership in
jthe'.'tiational association is. now. reduced
{to three, and that it would look better
_t_o have it as large as. it" was when they
:t went to Buffalo and" captured ."the con
vention for next' year. ../ .'- ' . \'\"*."
j Mr. Hodgson urged the importance of
the work, and reported the result his
sconfje rente. with railroad and wholesale
•interests iii connection with Mr. Lamb
: the day before. It would require' the
active co-operation of all interests to
■make the convention the grand success
jwhich lie could see for it, but they could
do it. _^* -—---■-■.-•■ „-. .._,._._. ._,.*.
a Mr.Faircliild was heartily in favor of.
all that had 'been, suggested and was
.confident that Mr. Lamb's labors would
result in advertising. St. Paul wonder
fully. ... o
Mr. Hoerr, Mr. Canby. Mr. Chitten
den and others spoke in the same line.
Messrs. Hoerr, Canby aud Reed were
appointed a committee on membership
iii the national association. 7 Mr. Fair
child presented some valuable matter
that he suggested as suitable for the
page St. Paul has engaged in the report
of the world's congress of real estate,
and it was adopted for use in that con
nection, but it is to be accompanied by

• GENEROUS GAS COMPANY.
Ther Distribute a Car Load of
■ ,- Turkeys.
For many years the St. Paul Gas com
pany has been in the habit of presenting
every employe with a Christmas turkey.
Though the employes have multiplied
ten fold since the custom was inau
gurated it is continued just the same.
Yesterday it took a car load to remember
their employes and friends, and a royal
collection of • the toothsome bird was
distributed. If a feast makes a merry
Christmas, and it usually does, the gas
company can feel that their generosity
has been productive of much happiness.
The suit of the National German-
American bank against E. R. Gil man
on a 83,000 ten . days' accepted draft on
the Great Western Manufacturing com
pany has been fully settled to the satis
faction of all parties and the case dis
missed.'
