Two or tlnco n.icks only, out of the tons of mull nutter that is dumped uciy morning on thu floor of the Washington city I'ostolllce, goes to lliu w line House. All thu departments have a mill room wheio the klteisnro lecelved an 1 sorted. In the l.iryer dcpartmi'iils thesu looms have quite a liostolllcu look of lluir own, and e.reid in the olumu of business tranmeted the figures of many towns of eonsldeiablu sie. Here tho sneks are opined mid thu contents dli Irlbuled Into tinys or boxes which lep lcscntthu ollliu of thu Secretary and the dUVucnt bureaus. When thus sort id iholetteis go to thu chief clerks, who go thiough tho pile, whether "contlilential" or not. Heads of de partments nru not supposed to huvu any guilty seciets, nnd they certainly haunotthu time to read all thu mls siM'S which como to tlicm as conllik'ii tial matter. So tho clerk rips open e cr) tiling and many "contldenti.il" lctteis drop Into his waste basket. Cominiiuicnlions on business matter? thu clerk tosses Into wiukei trays, and these aru borne by messengers to the chiefs of division and the heals of rooms having special supervlsluii or tliu mutter. If, liowover, thu letter Is sjen to be important, it is sent up inste.il of down, and eventually miy lliict lis way to thu desk of thu Secretory, or ove.i to the 1'icsldent. Inthooidinaryrouliue, ioweer, u letter goes tint to tho City I'ostnflicu, then to Ihutlcparlment, and then, step by step, to thu chief clerk of the bureau, "the chief cleik of division, and thupailiciilarclcrk who is aligned to uttmd to its subject matter. Then in due progress thu reply goes back, on thick while, lcttei lia'per of olllclal tle, elaborately headed, and gathering endorsement!! as It proceeds, rid marks and bluo marks, numbers and diitis, clicks, squares nnd crosses, till it is finally signed, folded nnd milled again. Js'ccissaiily there is somo led lape, for unless a ilgid system was fol lowed theic would bo fatal confusion in u week in all the largo Departments. These mysterious minks all have a meaning, au thu cnielcss or stupid cleik finds out soon enough, for by them eviry step is icglstcred nml n blunder tiacid back to its source. Tlio last hour or two of each olllre day in thu Depattinents Is devoted to lln'Miliig up tlio correspondence) and signing It. Thu latter means gic.U diudireiv to the Sccietarles and their ' esponslblo subordinates. Son.o days these olllccis sign their names for two hours as rapidly as they cm write, with a messenger nt their elbow to pass them sheet after sheet, and blot the t-igitattiru as it is scratched oil. llarcly aio thu contents of thu letter notiet'd. It comes to tliu desk through thu pioper channels, and is assumed to to correct. If not, the ono who buf fers by tliu cnor will bo pietty likely to complain. Of coutse, thu inoro im portant coucspondcnce is treated moiu cflieiuliy. And now the loply begins Its travels. Again tho department wagons, from tho heavy red vans to tho suspiciously neat ctminges, convey tho sacks to thu city postotllco, wheiu they nro emptied nnd tho httcis limited from clerk to cleik, Ono nrrnnges them in piles, then the canceling stamp and tho post mmk mo put on, mid then tho llrst rough distilbulieni by States and chief elliea begins. At tho city poslollljj, also, a fuithei dlstiibutlou takes plaeo In cn'u thu strain on tho lallway postal clerks. About 20,000 potolllce) nro leeated by the must direct railway lines, mid lettcis niu distributed for thesu lines, thus saving tliu lallway clerks fiom a vast tusk that would havo to bo done very epilckly. This pobtolllce Is tho third in tho countiy in volume of "business, tliou';li Washington Is only tho fourteenth city in population. This Is on account of the enormous olllcinl mail that p isses thiough 1'oitnmstcr Congers hands.

Some parcels go open, however, and them are handled in connection with newspapers, samples, books, shoes, honied toads, and other bulky nrlleh s, Thu slu of these parcels does not admit of a pigeon hole basis of ills tilbiitloii. The clerks therefore stand in thu arena of a mimic amphitheatre of labelled pouches rising about them in overlapping tiers, and toss thu bun dles into inu galling momns oi uiu sacks. It looka easy, but It is a special art.

"No," said Miss Carollnc,"tho family is deplorably destitute of children, but If 1 thought it would do papa nny good I would make) mi elTort to Unci a child Bomewheie, only, would it bo right to take u child Into this staid, epalct house hold V" "Why not?" said tho doctor. "A child would make you nil young ngnln." So next day Miss Caiollnopiit on her bonnet and stepped into the cars on the New London Northern Itoad nnd was carried away to a certain benevo lent Institution she had heard of, where sliu nsked if shu could borrow a llltlo girl.

One evening, sitting on tho clooiston holding her pet kitten until tho .star) caino out, sho said : "Oh, auntie, just look up nnd scotho holes where tlio rain comes thiough."

Opening the inellow-liued en velope the reporter drew out a double sheet of tlmc'Stnitied foolscap. On tho first shicl wns written n letter, cover ing two-thiids of its smi face.

Over thu hair and thu photograph were written, "Hero mo a lock ot baby's hair mid u photograph of llltlo S.illle."
