BILL NYE ON POSTMASTERS. O
He Used to Re One Himself, and He
Knows the Ropes. h
rFroUm the New York Worl.]
The New York postoffice is a large, b
dignified building, situated right where
the roads fork ; being the place where Sf
you can turn off to the right from the h
main traveled road in order to get to
the bridge. It is used partly for a post- a
office and partly for a court house, so
that one end of the building prac- T
tically pays the expensse of the other w
end. A self supporting postoffice and a
court house here, where competition tl
i- hot and rents high, would naturally t<
show that times are good and money v
Mail comes here from all foreign ai
countries and Europe also. It is dis- si
tributed at once, and one is permitted ,
to mail a letter at any time, day or d
night. It's wonderful. In tall build- b
ings now there is an arrangement by d
which one may shoot his letters into a
runaway or flume, and they will be
carried into a United States mail box lo
on the ground floor, where a trust- a:
worthy young man in a speckled straw ti
helmet coies and fills his valise with B
them,after which he carries them, away w
to the postoftice and personally uses his
influence with the postmaster to have f
them sent away by t he early train. v
I stood near the small box at the c<
bottom of the chute in the Standard h
Oil building the other day, and I re
mained there 10 or 1.5 minutes I counted b
forty-nine letters as they were laid, w
one by one, hot from the crackling
typewriters above, and all no donbt
reeking with the bloody and startling ti
statement, coming like a peel of thun
der from an unpeeled sky, "Dear Sir- '
Your esteemed favor of the-th inst, (or b
ult, or prox.) is before me. In reply h
would say," etc, There's just about as
much use in this opening las there a
would be in stating that "We take our
pen in hand," or in opening a prayer c
by reading the minutes of the previous
The New York postoffice is directly tY
connected with the dead letter office
at Washington, and those who have
-never corresponded with that prosper- s
ous morgue have miss?"d a good deal. E
The dead letter ollice is, after all, a
great boon; though it does not return
sonic things which reach it. A man
in Saginaw, Mich., mailed a pair of
dress shields by mistake which he had
bought for his wife, and though that
was two years ago come July they i
have never been returned. Another

as yet been done about it.
Ten years ago, there were 3,000,000
~ letters sent to the dead letter office in b
one yaof wThica ,000 had nuountrty
orbtate, 400,000 lacked stamps, and
3000 were posted without any ad
dress at all. Ninety-two thousand dol-p
lars in cash and over $3,000,000 in
drafts were conttained in these letters.
It appears that right straight thog
every letter sent to the dead letter
office contains "n an average $1, so i
mine really fell below the average.
Queer things happen to letters even
when they do not get to Washington.
A Wyomi ng postmiaster used to claim
that circular letters, unsealed, if notb
called for with a day or two, were
good things to use in starting the fire.

a little private dead letter office for s
his own special use. One day his chil- t
4dren were playing tag with each other ta
inside the postoflice and canceling each
other's nose with the M. 0. B. stampj,
when suddenly they decided to inves
tigate the coal hod in search of adver-a
Itising cards. In each of the two large b
circular envelopes they found a smal
ler sealed letter which had worked in
by shoving a large mass of letters to- g
gether for cancellation. The children t
had torn these two letters open and
were playing Fourth of July and Rally c<

Savings Banks in the South.
In reviewing the needs of the "New
>uth," a thoughtful man soon sees
at a general system of savings banks
one of the most important. The fact
at there are so many new ones now
operation shows that the prosperity
that section is on a solid foundation.
hile agriculture, and that of a special
nd, remained the chief industry, the
attered population, untrained in hab
of thrift, felt no need of a savings
nk ; pennies and nickles were de
ised, and dimes hardly counted worth
manufacturing, giving regular week
or monthly payments, and with the
crease of mechanics from the North
id East, came a demand for a safe
ace of deposit for surplus earnings.
bat this demand is being met speaks
ell for the sagacity of the men who
-e leading the forward movement in
te South, but that very much remains
be done cannot be doubted by one
ho has looked over the field.
The great enterprises of the country
large are carried forward to a con
lerable extent by the accumulated
,vings of the workingmen. If one

id millions of dollars have been
aned to build factories, stores, &c.,
id how much to railroads to build
teir lines ; how much to the city of
altimore for paying streets, laying
ater mains, &c. . The money
it in savings banks is not withdrawn
om circulation and hoarded in their
aults. On the contrary, it is to a
>nsiderable extent taken out of secret
iding places and put into circula

iks must lend the money out in some
ay to earn interest on it, and that it
Lust be put to the best uses is appar

ie safety of the principal as well as in
rest. It is commonly thought that
ew England contains the best savings
inks, but in a quiet way Baltimore
as developed some institutions which,
,r careful, conservative management,
id attention to the needs of their
>nstituents, rank with any in the
>untry. The Savings Bank of Balti
Lore, commonly known as "The Old
ank,' being the oldest here, and the
iird chartered in the United States,
iting back to 1818, and now having
me $16,000,000 of deposits, deservedly
ands at the head. Next comes the
utaw, then the Central, Metropolitan,
:aryland, German, Provident and

rovident are run in one way, with
ie place of business open in the mid
.e of the day, all of them practically
the center of the city.
The Provident has departi;d radically
om this plan, and the success it has

unt books, following a system of
teir own devising, are unusually well
apted to accurate work. The same
terest is paid as at other banks, un
r the same rules. In short, there is
advantage given by any savings
ink that they do not give, and the
nveniences of location and business

How to Get Out of Debt.

think the farmer is more tempted t
