high sounding verbose loquacious
worthless manueoiipt Last week we
received fifty long letters from all parte
of the country akinu for space Jn

wrote is on earth today for the reason
that we bad the effice devil to make a

one of them into emoke Space writers
windjammers and other individuals of

letter is acoompanied by the money to
pay for the same at cent per word it
is useless to send it the Lallas Express
We are not running theExpiees for the
race but for the money there is in it
and if you have no money you neednt
