POSITIONS AT P0ST0FFICE
The United States civil service com
mission announces that on Feb. 21,
1903, an examination will be held for
the positions of clerk and carrier in
the postottice service in this city.
This examination offers an excel
lent opportunity for entering the fed
eral service to bright, energetic young
persons who are not afraid of hard
work, and as previous examinations
have failed to result in a sufficient
number of eligibles, the commission
urges all persons who are qualified
and who may desire to enter the post
office service, to apply for and take
this examination. It may be stated
that there is a wider field for advance
ment upon merit in the federal serv
ice than in many private employ
ments. While the wilary in the. post
office. service is usually about $400 per
annym at the start, this amount com
pares favorably with the compensn
tion of a beginner in private employ'
the nature of the examination is a
test, of practical, 'general intelligence
and of adaptability in postottice work
The examination will consist of the
subjects mentioned below, which will
be weighted as follows:
Letter writing 20
C-opving from plain copy 10
United States geography 1
Reading addresses 1
Aire limit, all lmsitio'ns. 18 to iJ
b rom the-eliiribles resulting from
this examination it is expected that
certificates will be made to existing
and future vacancies.
The names of all male eligibles w ill
be entered on both the clerk and the
carrier registers, and appointment
from either register will remove the
eligible's name frtmi both registers.
All applicants, male ami female,
must have the medical certificate in
form 101 executed. Male applicants
must be at least 5 feet 4 inclies in
height and weigh not less , than 125
pounds. D- F. KRELL,

The room entered was that occu

located in the second story at the
west side of the residence just over a

about 6:30. Miss Rosenfield. who was
writing a letter, was in her room up
to that time. About 7:30 she return

The watch was the most valuable
of the articles taken. It was worth
perhaps $500 mid was purchased in
Europe by its owner. It had an oK-n

The owner s meals when cooked are

The chief peculiarity, however, of
this eccentric being is that twice a

then walks the five miles to the station

emerges in full evening dress and goes

It has been ascertained that he then
takes n cab to one of the big clnbs in

he does at the club is not known, but
he returns by the first (newspaper)

to his room at the station, puts on the
