EVENING BULLETIN, JANUARY 14',, 189G.
Hon tlio Weakiici of the I'MlatolUt
Tho aocour.t in tbo newspapers
tbo other day of tbo nev atotapa
of San Marino gavo only one in
stanco of tho way in which oflioiala
and privato poraonstrude upon tbo
amiable woaknoss of thophilnto
list. Mostpoat-officos now ro
cogniso to some oxtont tbo oxist-
"onco of tbo philatelist; even tbo
Grown ngoiits for tbo colonies
niako a roronue from tbo salo of
old stamps to dealers. Iu somo
, countries tho wholo issuo of
stumps is controlled by tbo poou
Itanties of tho philutolio market.
Ono of thomoBtoomraon dodges
just now (twys tho "Wostminstor
Budget ) is tho spociul or com
niouiorntivd ipsuo. Portugal is u
bud oQondor, and this jnnr it is
coIcbiuting.Uio fUUtu birthday of
St. Anthony Of this suint it is
lecordod that SJ2 years. iftcr his
death somoono discovered that his
tongue bud bot n iniruouloualy
presorvia irom aecay. An issue
ofnuhesive stamps is, therefore,
judfind to bo a by no moans un
suitable way to keep bis moinorv
groen. Tbo Portuguese colonies
aro to snare in tho celebratiou.
Tbo smallest variation in do
iBp,n is ouough to make the philn-
tolist buy; so one enteipusiiiR
local poHt-ofttco in Itusaia has
added a thirteenth to the twelve
boes which formerly uppeniod on
tho design; nor aro the offioinls
without thoir roward.
Guatemala is leally ivittj It
has conceived a post-card "which
must not contain any written mat
ter except the addioss'' not a
very useful piece of stationery,
you will say stupid 1 dou't you
aeo you cau piint on tho back,
and it makes another post-card
' for the collector to buy!
Tho "error in printing'' is a
sunplo but enuctive device, lou
order a sot of stumps to be print
ed iu certain coiois. After tho
' first few shoots you find the coiois
are wrong, and chungo them. The
collector buys both lots. The
"surcharge' donge can bo used, of
cpurse, without other limit than
human ingenuity: One of the
i most startling of rocont times is a
'bold D. T. on tho fnco of some
Greek stumps. It is not a ro-
'flootion on the sobriety of tho
'.officials. It signifies a particular
method of delivery. It is ono of
the few out of tho thousands oi
" surcharges that havo some uso.
An African territory recently
issued u fine set of stamps. A
"shoot was recently found of which
Weaoh ono was.8urcbarged with tho
""name of a month. 'Tueownor
'"said it cost him two bottles of gin
'to get it done."
"Presidbnt Ezota, of Salvador,
""propired stamps for 1895. Ho
went out of office before tboy cime
in. But his stamps roimin for
silo tn collectors.
There aro a few buildings on
the coa-t of tho lied So.i which
aro called Djibouti, and boast
themselves a French colony. They
"" boast also a oolossil stamp v.ilue
' 25f. No specimen could over be
"wanted for real use.
Chili got on for many year
without unpaid letter stamps.
r Suddeuly tLo need was felt so
suddouly that "provisional" labels
'-had to be issued whilo the real
stamps wro being engraved. Tho
l' collector trtasnresa "provisional"
abovo moat things.
Oftical post-offices are bad
enough, but what shall we a-iy of
w the writer of this lottor (publish
ed in Moh. Stunley Gibbon'a
' Monthly Journal): Dear Sir,
-Kuowmg your firm as the greatest
Vt dealeis in post stamps, I tako the
v liberty to ask your uttontion for
" tbo following business: On my
trip on tbo Upper Congo I entered
- in a Iraot of friendship with a freo
"Arab King, and bought from him
'' tho concession to mako stamps
""'for his Kingdom. As I should
f liko to sell the concession, I offer
it to you for two years at thoprico
I, of X100. Awaiting your answer
"as Boon as possible, 1 am,gen-
t tloruon, yours truly, etc."
j), Another traveller has rtcently
jfy obtained a liko concession from
''Mho Sultan of Iiruuei (North
liSIJorneo). Hois not less frank:
"Lot mo explain," he says, "that
it was 1 who suggested to the
""Sultan that ho t-hould issue
'stamps, 'and I have arranged tho
"wtifclo thing. He and his Poat-
Ciui Imvrt no idea of tho wnv In
conduct' ahy Lusinoss. I assure
'yoo thilt thb dblay in sending tho
stamps to you is caused by the
' illnoss of tho Postmastor'a wife
