" Under a now revival of an old rul
ing of the postofliee department, rail
way postal clerks arc not allowed to
carry persons, not properly author
ized ami passed, in their railway pos
tal cars. This has been done in the
jiast in a good many cases, and in
this manner the railroads have lost
fares for which thev should have been
paid. The new ruling, however,
goes several stcjis further, and says
that even duly authorized and
passed po.-tal clerks are not to be car
ried ia cars unless thev are regularly
on duty oil that part of the line.
The railroads have little to com
plain of in the way of passenger bus
iness these days, at least the business
being done m this line should have a
tendency to sidetrack complaints.
The systems, both oast and west,
have fared well, and the good times
have not passed. The Iowa roads
have had their hands full the past

World's fair, -and they will be money
in pocket by returning them. It is
estimated that . (Hi;) people from

attend the Iowa day celebration.

Leo J. Deiscnroth has been suffer
ing from a tumor in one of his limbs
for some time. It has been operated
upon unsuccessfully, anddiis physi
cians state that an amputation of the
limb near the thigh is necessary to
cheek the tumorous growth. Mr.
Deiscnroth has decided to undergo
the surgical operation the tirst of the
week, which will be performed by
Drs. Middleton. of Davenport, anil
Ludewig, of this city. He passed
the civil service examination held on
August 5th for mail carrier, being a
bright and energetic young man and
the affliction which has befallen him
is lamentable in the extreme.
Harry Feterson, a Carrier of The Arena,
Meets With a Painful Accident.
Harry Peterson, a 13-year old boy,
living on Tenth avenue and Elm
street, and a carrier of The Argus,
met with what might have been a
serious accident last evening at
about 4:30 o'clock as he was about to
start out on his route. He attempted
to jump upon a Penn Tank Line oil
wagon driven by George Hanson on
Second avenue near Seventeenth
street, and his left foot slipped and
in some way was caught in the
spokes of one of the hind wheels.
The little fellow uttered a frantic
scream which attracted the driver's
attention and as soon as possible he
stopped the horses. II. I). Folsom
was one of the tirst on the scene and
found it necessary to cut off the shoe
and the wheel had to be taken partly
off before the foot could be released.
He was taken into Folsom's jewelry
store and Dr. Asay was sent for. In
the meantime the patrol wagon was
sent for to take the boy home, but
when it arrived he refused to go in
it saying he feared his folks would
think ho was seriously injured.
George Schniedcr then kindly offered
the use of his horse and buggy which
was accepted. Ollicer F.lzcl drove
the little sufferer home.
Kxti-nt of the Injuries
i.r. Asay louint mat there were no
Indies broken, but that the limb
from the knee down was badly
bruised and sprained. Had not the
driver slopped when he did the limb
might hae been fearfully broken
and probably pulled from its socket;
as it is it w ill be some time before he
is able to be about again. It is one
of those too often unheeded lessons
to boys who are in the habit of hang
ing onto wagons and cars.

THAT ST. PAUL FAILURE.

When the Ainu s of

ojde being j
mil firm of
it referred I
more particularly to the Buford!
member of the firm. The St. Paul
house was started by the Messrs.
Buford, but they afterward sold out.
John R. Warner, formerly of Rock
Island, was secretary of the firm,
however, and his many friends here
will regret the misfortune that has
come upon his business interests.
A IWioil l.iver.
A dispatch says that Mr. Burwell
has not been soon in St. Paul since
some time Wednesday night, when,
it is stated, he had "an altercation
with Victor Robinson, the assignee.
It is stated that he is out of town.
An attachment was issued on all his
property on application of C. N. Bel
las, attorney for the carriage com
yany. The senior member of the tirm
and' its largest capitalist is P. P.
Mast, of Springfield. Ohio. Nothing
that has occurred here in years has
so agitated Ihe business community.
Jules H. Burw ell w as easily the most
popular man in St. Paul, and he was
considered one of its brightest young
business men. Last year he was
president of the State" Agricultural
society, and because of his great
ability as an organizer, he was last
June selected as the manager of the
great Hill railway oelchraticn. He
was one d the city's leading Free
Masons and was a central figure in
all the enterprise calculated to add
glory to the name of St. Paul. Mr.
Burwell was w hat is know n as a
good liver." but he had never been
charged with wasting money in de
bauches. He has an elegant house
at 1003 Summit avenue, and has al
ways moved in tirst social circles.
