TEE FAs-r ScuIEDULE.--Tho fast
schedule of the mail trains is sub)ject
to some disadvantage. The mail is
delivered and received at those sta
tions at which the train doen not
stop), by moans of mail catchers.
But a difficulty aries in case of
regis tered letters. Tholise are not
placed in the maihbag, but are trans
ferred from agent to agent, ech
giving and taking a receipt therepfor.
These letters cannot be taken in on
the fly with the mail-bags. To obs
viate the difficulty a nowv invention
has been made, for which a ' patent,
will be taken out. Without going
into details, it is sufficient to say
that the princild part of this ma
.chine consists of a grappling hook
which, on a signal from the postas
ter at any station, is lowecred out.
As the traini passes, the hook grabs
the postmaster by the seat of his
breeches and yanks him into the car
wvhere the necessary transfer is made.
After the nmail agent has gotten the
mnoney,ho dumps the p~ostmnaster out
by the same machinery. The seat of
the postmaster's pants are t6 bo
lined wvith leather, to prevent acci
dents, Young and active postmas

.one becomes expert the operation is
said to be quite exhilarating and

The Building. and Loan Association.
Tho second annual meeting of the
Winnsboro-Building and Loan Asso

on Monday evening last. A majori
yy of the share-holders were present.
On the recommendation of the
board of directors, the by laws of
the Association were so amlended as
to constitute a majority of the stock
a quorumm, instead of a majority of
the nieubers as heretofore.
The irst business in order was
the reading of the report of the
treasurer, and of the committee ap

It will be seen that the estimate
made by the committee of the value
of ea91 share varies slightly from
that of the treasurer. This is
ac counted for by the fact tha Vlu
committee did not take into consid
eration the cash balance of $45.48.
On motion, the report of the com
mittee was disposed of in the same
manner as that of the treasurer.
The Association then went into an
election of officens fit the gear
