Henry Swick, 17 years old, was un
able to account for the impulse which
led htm to throw a brick bat at the
wagon of a peddler last night when
he was haled before Magistrate C. J.
Smith this morning. Swick was
standing some 15 yards from the wag
on of Benny Sunshine when the latter
drove on the Schaab scales with a load
of scrap iron. He threw the brick
he says tossed at the wagon, struck i
the seat, and the rock rebounded. Had
his aim been less accurate, a passing
woman would have stopped the mis
sile. Officer Kirsch was standing near
by and he placed Swick under arrest.

When called upon to sign the war

hesitated. He cannot write, and it
vas necessary for him to make a
cross. After being coaxed a lit'le bit,
he took a chance on the hieroglyphic.

Handling and Sorting the Mail MatMp

Every one is aware that a large quan-
tity of mall comes from Europe. Prob-
ably most persons assume that It 1 i
duinr-ed off the steamers in bulk ami
sorted and routed in the postofflee of
the receiving port. Such a system
would result in hopeless congestion,
and practically all of the .15.000.000
pounds of foreign mail matter receiT
etl at New York on an average of re
cent years is ready, sorted and sacked
when the steamers make port. This
work is done in the sea postofflces
aboard the ships and means days
saved in the time of delivery of mail
matter iuteuded for inland points.
In the huge mass of mall brought
Into New York eac h year there are on
un average S0.000.000 separate pieces.

age trip open nnd sort from 800 to 900
sacks of mail, probably consisting of
ioO.cMiO ordinary letters and 4.000 reg
istered letters, besides 250.000 par
cels and periodicals. Mail for New
York city is distributed and separate
ly sacked for ene-h of the stations and
that for the Pnited States generally
according to a schedule which has 128
divisions. In addition to the mall for
the United States, the sea postofflee
clerks must sort that destined for Cu
ba. Mexico. Canada and the orient, a
great de?al of the last class being for
wareled by rail to Sun Francisco and
thence by steamer.
To facilitate matters two mall boats
are maintained at New York, and these
meet Incoming steamers at the quar
antine station, one taklug on the mail
bags intended for direct delivery to
trains and steaming directly to the
railway stations along the river front,
the other that for New York city and
such others as require rehandling. The
sen posteiffices cost the government
something less than $3,000,000 per an
