How They Are Hued.
(From the St to York Star.)
"The most trouble onie ofi'ondors
against governinoul laws uro Ibo ex
ports who uso canceled postage stamps,"
said a postofflco oiUoial thoothorday.
..They have a system of washing out
tho cancellation marks that is so suc
cessful as to make dotoolloii almost
impossible bl tho offices Of large eil ies
Uko New York and Chicago, where so
many letters are handled daily, and
?where rapidity is thc most desirable
feature, it is impossible for the men
who cancel -tamps lo examine each
one carefully. Then, too, a groat deal
of the win k is done by gaslight, and
this is a point which tends to aid the
conspirator against the government's
"Any one who has seen a postofliec
employ? in tho New York ellice grab ti
bunnie of lettCl*8 lind cancel tho stamps
with lightning-like rapidity can read
ily seo bow impossible it is for him to
detect bad stamps unless they are par

the business of using unneeded stamps
aro extremely clever. They have un
acid in which ihov wash the-lamp-.
The acid nets upou the cancellation
marks, nod not upon thc colors of the
stamp. In tin- way a ?tamp thal hus
once been U-'MI i- relieved abie.st en
tirely of ii- black murks, li nnj
black remains ,-in -r the washing pro
cess the opei alor lakes ik sharp knife,
winch be bas intuit* for the purpose,
and deftly -cratches Hie slump until
thc remaining ni ick marks ure almost
il not eui ireh removed. This can be
done rendilj when Ibo mark-- are upon
the bald heat, or tho fuco of I he his
toric personage whose vignette adorns
tho stamp, as this poi lion is while:
and upon a while -pace the -tamp can
be scratched until it is nearly through
"Another clever nick that is em
ployed is the cutting of stamps. Often
ju the burry of postoflico work tho
cancellation mark does not cover tlio
stamp, but falls only upon one corner,
the rest going upon the envelope. Thc
operator takes a -lanni that has a black
murk, say upon the loll band lower
corner Ile carefully cuts a square
piece out <>f that corner, making it
large enough to cut away all of the
canceled portion. Ile then -cctires a
stamp on which the cancellation mark
bas fallen in some other conloi*. Ile
carefully cuts out the same sized square
from the lower left hand corner of tile
stain}), and joining it with tia- llrsl
stamp be has a whole stump upon
Which there aro no cancellation marks.
These stamps are used upon packages
which are tied with a string, and the
String is ingeniously placed over (In
"Toko any package of a do/.eii let
ters and you will see how nev il i- to
find stamps for this business.'' As bc
spoke the official drew from bis pocket
a bundle of half a dozen letter-. Upon
thc first letter the cancellation mark
?was only upon the lower rigid corner
of tho stamp. Thc second was can
celed completely, and the third Was
marked only upon the upper left baud
corner. 45o -l combination could have
been easily made willi thc -lamp- upon
thc first aiid third letters.
"Many of llics? Operators," con
tinued the officiai, "grow expert in tho
Work. They have clever tools and
the right kino of mucilage, and some
go even so far as to have coloring pro
cesses tor touching up ti Garfield black
eye or a Washington soiled cheek.
What do they do with thc workcd-ovcr
stamps? Thc) do not sell them, a
u any BUppose, ami that fuel rendors
detection more difficult. W hen a man
become successful in working over
canceled stamps ho endeavors io gel
into some business which will require
the sending and receipt of rnnuy|rcgii
tercd letters and packages. The most
popular scheine i- lo go into Ibo cheap
jewelry or fancy trick business. The
operator lays in a stock of thc cheapest
kimi of jewehy and advertises thor
oughly through the country, especial Iv
in ?-ural districts. A gold watch with
chain and charm for $4.00 is a bait
that catei:es a great many green -pec
ulators, and as they are i nsl mot od tn
send remittances by registered letter,
the operator'receive- a number of live
and ten cent stamps. These stamps
ho operates on, and when hi! returns
the jewelry be pay- tin- postage in
whole or in part with canceled stamps.
Ho makes inn to 200 pei- ceni on the
jewelry, and docs u thriving business

"Ah, yes, there are a gt eat mans in
