Care That Khould be Taken In Pre.
pat ins rat-eels for the Mails Unr-
las the Holiday Heanen.
Bupt. L. L Troy, of the railway pos
t ilEe.rvice.has sent out the following regu
lations with reference to preparing and
addressing packages to be sent through
The season is approaching when the
mails will be filled with holiday presents,
and a great many are unnecessarily lost,
dtlayed or damaged each year because of
the indifferent manner In which they are
prepared for mailing.
Newspaper or other thin paper should
never be used for wrapping, and pack
ages as ordinarily wrapped where pur
chased are not sufficiently secure for for
wading in the mails.
Use strong paper; make a solid pack
age that will not crush easily; tie well
with good twine; address legibly nd
correctly with ink on the lower right hand
It is always advisable to place the
name and address of the sender on the
upper left had corner of all packages, etc.,
sent in the mails, so they may be returned
in case the addressee cannot be found.
Postal statistics show that more delays
result from incorrect addresses than from
errors in distribution by postal employes
In case of loss or delay report the same
to your postmaster with all of the infor
malion that can be given.
That comedy drnmt success, "The
Barglar," will be presented at the Burtis

says in its report:
Toasts were responded to as follows:
"Portland, the City of Oar Adoption," by
Rev. David Weizell; "The Young Men's
Christian Association," by Rev. G. W.
Gue. When Mr. Gue was introduced as
the new pastor of the Grace M. E.hurch,
he received a perfect ovation, and for
some seconds was not able to speak,
owing to the hearty applause. Mr. Gue
paid a glowing tribute to the Y M. C. A ,
emphasizing the need of a building, in
which he referred to the general secre
taries of o her cities as the right men in
the right place, tbtn turning and faeiDg
Mr Jicks, he said: "And from what I
have beard, Mr. Jacks is the right man in
Portland. " This was received by the
large company with tremendous enthus
iasm. Some one cried out, "give nim

At the First Methodist church in Mo
line Sunday, a vote was taken on the sub
ject of transferring ownership of the lot
and the church edifice in Stewartville to
the Second M. E. church. The vote was
unanimously in the affirmative, and the
trustees of the First church are now under
instructions to transfer the property (als
ready in use by the Second church) to the
trustees of that church. Thus the
Stewartville church and field becomes a
separate charge, independent of the
church in Moline. This act on the part
of the First church, was done as quickly
as it could be done appropriately the
closing of the litigation with the U. B.
trustees so recently placing the title in a
