The postoffloe department, under tLe
the direction of Postmaster General
Wanamaker, is about to make an impor
tant more with regard to Sunday mail
service. The following circular of In
qulry, which is selfsexplanatory.bas been
sent oat, though a copy has not as yet
been received in Rock Island:

Washington, D. C, May 1H, 18S,
Sir: With the view of ascertaining
the relative importance of the receipt
and dispatch of mails at postofflces and
the delivery therefrom to the public on
Sunday, as compared with the same on
the other days of the week, and in order
to reduce the work on that day, if it shall
be found to be practicable and proper, I
will thank you to carefully collect in for,
mation on the following points as applied
to Sundays in the coming month of June,
and nuke report thereon in detail to me,
1. The amount of postage stamps,
postal cards, newspaper wrappers, etc,
sold at yoor office on each Sunday in
2. The number of callers at your post
office on each Sunday in June.
8. The number of mails dispatched and
received on each Sunday in June, and the
approximate extent of such mails.
4. The number of letter carrier collec
tions, tbe approximate extent of the mail
matter collected, and the hours at which
the several collections were made.
5. The number of employes on duty
each Sunday and the hours of service by
I shall also esteem it a favor if you
will submit to me, with these replies.any-
suggestlons which may occur to you,
after careful thought, as to the means and
the mode of reducing Sunday work in
postofflce. Very respectfully,
The railway companies, too, are grad
ually coming to the conclusion that it is
not only proper, but profitable, to observe
the Sabbath and refrain from doing busi
ness on that day. A short time ago sev
eral of the Yanderbilt lines, as well as
some in the west, decided to run no freight
trains on Sunday, except for perishable
property when such trains were abso
lutely necessary . The move is one in the
right direction and many officials are now
working to have their trains run so that
their employes can, in a large measure,
observe Sunday with their families, in
stead of being kept at little one-night
stands in cheap boarding houses away
from heme. Another step in the same
direction is that just taken by the Chicago
roads toward tbe closing of the city ticket
offices. It has been agreed that, com
inencing Sunday, June 2, all the railroads
having city ticket offices in Chicago will
discontinue the practice of keeping their
offices open from 10 to 11 o'clock Sunday
morning. The depot offices will be open
as usual in ample time before the outgo
ing trains to accommodate the Sunday

The Dubuque Timet says Mr. Al
Clarke has applied for a patent on an in
vention of his own, which is destined to
revolutionize the soda and mineral water
industry. The apparauts Consists of a
portable tank beneath wbich is a project
ing box with a slot in the top. You fill
the tank with a mineral water, and then
drop a nickel in tbe slot and out comes a
glass of sparkling vichy or seltzer, as the
case may be.
The only objection which we can see
to this invention is that it may be used to
great advantage in evading tbe operation
of the prohibitory law. Just fill the tank
with lager, and stand it in the corner of
some dark alley. Then put the boys on.
They can go around, drop their nickels in
the slot, and rash the growler to their
heart's content. You couldn't very well
arrest the machine, and certainly no one
old them tbe beer.
Thus does inventive genius drive tbe
honest working man who earns a livincr
by manual labor out of business. The
-beer machine will be tbe death of the
bootleggers, Iowa's latest addition to the
ranks of infant industries.

Tbe usual treatment of catarrh is very
unsatisfactory, as thousands of despair
ing patients can testify. On this point
a trustworthy medical writer says
"Proper local treatment is positively nec
cessary to success, but many.if not most
of the remedies in general use by pbysi
cians afford but temporary benefit. A
cure cannot certainly be expected from
tnuffs, powders, douches and washes."
Ely's Cream Balm is a remedy which
combines the important requisites of
quick action, specific curative power with
perfect safety and pleasantness to the
' Chicago Herald.
Time will bring no added strength to
the doctrine that the foreigner is paying
our duties for us. The people will never
grow happy oa account of taxation.
Because time and the welfare o( tbe peo
ple are with 'he Illinois and western
democracy, the Herald may expect further
demonstrations of popular intelligence.
How that general acumen shall impress
itself on tbe republic Is a matter worthy
The leader of tbe low tax and home
rale propaganda in the west is Gen. John
M. Palmer. The nomination of 1888
came to him unsought, and he was un
envied in its possession. The campaign
wbich he waged against class privilege
and unjust taxation placed him in the
acknowledged leadership of western re
form, however enviable that distinction
might he. Tbe defeat of Roche at Chi
cago confirmed the victory of 1888; the
frontiers of ignorance and Immorality
were delimited, and this city was defini
tively ceded by tbe war taxers. Gen.
Palmer, rather thsn any other public man,
may now count on a plurality in Chicago
which will go far to elect him ia a sUte
contest, liow shall this advantage be
used for the profit of tbe people?
If the next democratic state convention
should see fit to nominate Gen. Palmer
for the United States senatorship, form
ally suggesting bis name to the electorate,
and asking that state senators and re pre
sentatives be chosen strictly on that line, 1
we should have a campaign throughout
tbe state comparable to none other since
the political joust of Lincoln and Doug
las, save thai Gen. Palmer would have
no foe nearly equal in mettle. In a can
vass similar to that of 1888. Gen. Palmer
would attain get in touch with the people.
Whether or not Senator Farwell would
make the attempt of preaching war taxes
at the risk of his own political fortunes
could be told in the event.
With the decadence of protection as a
protector, and the Increasing popular
study ef free trade, it is no mere boast
to say that Gen. Palmer ought to defeat
Senator Farwell. Tbe man of the rural
region would have the big city, and the
man of the big city would need to retaiu
tbe rural region. If tbe country should
follow the countryman, or if the agricul
tural counties should remain republican
by only a small plurality. Gen. Palmer
would set out for Washington as a highly
conspicuous personage. In the federal
senate he would be the menace of monop
olies and the prophet of the people. Tbe
national conventions of 1893 would not
convene without ample thought upon the
subject of Gen. Palmer's fitness as a
presidential candidate. It maybe prom
ised that the labor party would seize an
early moment to nominate- him for its
leader. To close all eastern feudal
wounds, to consolidate the interests of
labor and democracy, the democratic
convention might find no method so ex
pedient as the nomination of the labor
candidate, and with such an outcome it
is likely the labor party of New York,
following tbe happy example of Illinois,
might amalgamate no less closely with
the state democracy.
This is not prophecy. It is opportuni
ty. To every democrat these conjectures
must seem proper. They have already
alarmed many republicans, and perhaps
none of them more profoundly than Sen
A remarkable story comes from Cardiff.
Wales. A collier names David Davies, of
rreberbcrt, was a FUfforer Vv a great explo
sion that occurred in 1S80. For four- yenrg
arter he was confined to his lied. Flo then
gradually got about, but remained doaf and
dumb from tbe shock. A doctor advised him
to try a shock somewhat similar to that which
had caused his infirmity. A little while ago
he placed himself near where six shots were
to be fired in the Bute Pit, and strange to
say, at the sixth shot his hearing returned to
him. Still he was dumb, but on a subsequent
Sunday the Rev. E. Kowlund, missionary to
the deaf mutes, said something to Davies
which put Lim in a passion, and he involun
tarily or instinctively made an attempt to
express bis anger. To bis amazement the
power of speech came back, and be now talks
freely. He, however, nays that speaking
makes his throat sore, and bis tongue is made
sore by his teeth. Chicago Tribune.
A Pickpocket Trick.
What I suspect as a new pickpocket trick
was tried on me night before last, while goiug
home on the Benton-Bollefontaine Street Cor
line. Directly next to the seat occupied by
me a lady sat We were crowded pretty
closely, as tbe car was packed with passengers.
After the car bad gone about a mile I felt a
band moving very cautiously in the side
pocket of my overcoat. I was astonished to see
that it was the hand of the fair lady who sat
next to me. As soon as she saw that I had
detected her baud she drew it out of my
pocket, and blushinrly said: "Excuse me.
sir, but we set so close together that I thought
I was putting my band into the pocket of my
cloak. You can see that I have a pocket on
the outside of my cloak, on the same side that
the pocket is on yoor coat It was an em
barrassing mistake, but one I could not
avoid." 1 excused her, and after riding about
two blocks further she left tbe car. St. Louis

James McCloud, of Lndl, owns a horse on
bis Dakota farm which has eight feet. It is
perfectly formed in all respects, except that
it has eight feet. Not until the pasterns or
fetlock joint is reached in the descent from
the shoulder to the foot, is there any appar
ent difference between this horse and any
other. But at the pastern Joint, or lower end
of the shin bone, the branch begins, and two
perfectly formed feet are found on each of
the four legs. The horse runs on the range
the same and as fast as most of them, and all
eight feet are shod, or may be if desired. Mc
Cloud has refused $2,500 for a half interest in
tbe curiosity, but be wants $5,000 outright
for tbe whole animal. Madison Journal.

Ilostetter's Stomach Bitters is the precise
remedy to remove the obstruction effec-
tnally, but without drenching or weaken
ing the blockaded bowels, a consequence
always to be apprehended from the use
of violent laxatives, which are among the
most pernicious of the cheap nostrums
swallowed by the credulous and misin
formed. The fiat of experience, and of
the medical fraternity, sanction the claim,
of this standard aperient. Not only as a
source of relief and permanent regularity
to thn bowels, liver and stomach, but as
a means of remedying and preventing
kidney and bladder troubles, and fever
and ague, it is without a peer.
