Here is a little matter that ought to
be improved upon: "A" writes "B a
letter and forgets to put on a stamp.
The Postmaster writes to"B" that upon
receipt of stamp, he will forward letter.
It cost "B" five cents besides his time,
to get the letter, and the time he is
obliged to wait may make the letter of
no value. It is a small matter but very
important. Why not send the letter
and collect at place of delivery?
The spring and summer of the pres

The fall opening of the Beo Hive Ba
zaar, Oct. 27th, at Port Huron, was said
to be the grandest affair ever seen in
Port Huron. The evening display was
very fine. Between four thousand and
five thousand people visited that estab
lishment during tho day and evening,
and all were delighted. It was without
question the biggest and finest display
of holiday goods and bazaar goods ever
seen in eastern Michigan. Those in
search of holiday goods and want a
large and varied stock to select from

We are often asked to publish a card
of thanks, expressing gratitude for as
sistance rendered by friends and neigh
bors during sickness that results in
death. People seem to forget that the
obligation is just as great when the ob
ject of care and attention recovers, and
a card of thanks is never thought of
then. Another fact which is still more
important that is overlooked by fami
lies who have received favors, is that
no matter how much assistance may
be rendered by friends in time of dis
tress, it is no more than a humane act
and the Christian duty of every person
Do not waste your time in writing idiot
ic "cards of thanks" which at best is
only a hollow symbol. Bcmember the

other, can you discharge your obliga

The time will come when electricity
will bo as essential to ordinary house
keeping as bread and milk are nov.and
will be delivered to private dwellings
something after the style that milk and
bread are now delivered. A wagon will
drive up to the back door and leave a
box of electricity, sufficient to last at
least twenty-four hours. The housewife
will take the box and attach it to the
electrical apparatus in her house, and
run her sewing machine with it during
the day and light her dwelling with it
at night. The next morning the wagon
will call and the old box will be taken
away and a new one substituted, and
thus it will goon from day to day. This
can be done with much more ease than
a storage battery of an ordinary elec
tric motor can bo filled, and at a very
much le3s expense. In fact, if such a
system wero in general operation, the
cost would be almost nominal.
