There Is a plan suggested for the
use of stamp certificates to take the
piece of postage stamps in making
small remittances by mail.
It provides for the foMtnnce by the
authorities at Washington of stamp
certificates in denominations of 1,
i, 3, 4, 5, (0, 15 and 50 cents, and
the pustmasters are to sell them in
the same manner as postage sta.nps.
The buyer o! certificate is to 1
write hi name on the back, togeth
er with the name of the person to
whom a certificate i tent.
At the receiving postoflice the
certificate are to be exchanged at
face value for postage stamps, or
they are to be redeemed by cash at
a discount of 1 per cent. The
scheme is designed to do away with
the present evil of trafiicing in
stamps; to afford the public a con
venient, safe and inexpensive meth
od ot sending small amounts through
the mails J to lessen depredations in
the mails, and to give postoffices
which do the work of handling mail
matter proper credit for the sale of
stamps. It is believed the plan will
be a convenience with business con
cern doing a large mail order bus

seemed to prevail but - there were
two instances in which gloom
seemed to have settled on the

Wellington sat on the Republican
side but no one seemed to realize
his existence and as an onlooker
remarked "Melancholy seemed to
have marked him (or its own." On
the Democratic side sat Sen. Mc

r..rdi;il greetings from the Repub
lican senators, he was practical!)
sent to Coventry by the members
of bis own party. Ths warmth
with which Ins colleagues greeted
