THE SCKANTON TRIBUTE TUESDAY MORNING. MARCH 13. 18!)4.
SAFETY IN THE MAIL. THE FOUR SPECIAL MEANS OF TRANS MITTING MONEY DY POST. the Ail v.inl i :;(-. ( lllr i c ,1 by till) l'onl.ll Null', Money Order, KoslnU'rcil Letter Md S.' Clul nollTery Stamp-Know Which Ton Want and Ask Tor It. "UIvo m one of t hoso Hprciiil registry nlcrs," hM tho woman to theolark at llio branch office, "llow iiiiii'U is tt, 10 rents?" Hy dint of considerable queatloning tin' clerk aaoertalned that tiu ouatanar want ed to Mod a Hiuall sum of money i ' let ter ami knew that the United states gov ernment had provided some tneana by w,:h she conlil insure its safety in its i through the mails, but hor mind wus in hoiH-less confusion as to tho nature of this device, for every friend who had consulted had called it. by a different name, and aho had conceived that all the names referred to the aame thinn. It took the elerk some time to explain, ''You can take yourchoiceof fiiiirways, ma'ani, according to just whut you want," aid he. "if you are goin to nend only a little money, lees than to, and your ouly wish is to avoid Inclosing coin or inwtage stamp or pspor as soft and bulky ns a greenback, which may be felt through tho etivelox, we cau Riro you a Jvstal neto for 3 centa. This la prlnteit on a thin, stiff paper of a stw which will lie flat in an ordinary foldeU sheet. The elerk and letter carriers might handle your letter all day. aud they would uever guess from the feeling what was iuside of it. When your correspondent receives it. he can take it to the postoflice and get it cashed, or bank It as hi would a piece of money, or use it to pay his grocer, or send it away in a letter himself, for it is good at any postodice iu the Cntttd States and in anybody s hands, io long ns it is presented for redemption within three mouths from the day of Issue. But this very convenience is the chief draw hick of the postal note, for if any dishon est person should get hold of it it would be the same as money iu his bauds. "If absolute safety la what you are most anxious to secure, we can give you a money order. Ttvs is pretty nearly as good as a bank check. We send from here a private letter of advice coutaiuitm your name, and when your correspondent re ceives your order he can collect the money on it only by telling who sent It to him and by being himself identified as the per son in whose favor it is drawn or elat by indorsing it to somebody who is known at the postoflice. This, you tee, is a decided advantage- on tho score of safety. But, more than that, if your order should be stolen or destroyed, the nuverumeut holds itself responsible, and if you comply with certain requirements will issue you a new order. This is something it will not do for you if anythiuu happens to your postal note. Tbo bad feature about the money order, however, la that it can be cashed only at the one postodice on which it is drawn. On account cf the additional se curity aurroundiag the moc.'y order we charge mere for it that for a postal nots. A $o order would cost you 3 cents and a $10 order 9 cents, a 113 order 10 cents, and so on upward. "Then, again, there is the registered letter. You give us your envel -pe. seaied and indorsed i-; your own handwriting. We know nothing about its contents. You may have pn: only a lovi letter itl it or a 11,000 government bond, it is all the same to us. and the price of registry is uniform for everything. S cents. This process has the advantage of absolute secrecy, for y in don't have to take a single soul into your confidence. It has the further advantage of assuring yon that whatever you send reaches its destination, for wo refuse to deliver it to arty one except tlfe person ad dressed, who must either present him.-e.lf in peraon and be identified or give us his authority in writing to deliver it to some body else, whose identification we require in the same way, and whoever receives it is obliged to give M a written receipt in his own handwriting, vhich we send back to you without expense. This makes a good deal of difference if you are making a payment to a slippery creditor or if you are sendir a bill to a debtor, who might want to au'.c believe he had nevt.r heard from you. In any such case yon have his ewn signature to confront him with. The safety of the registered letter is pretty Well guarded. Every postoGce o'Jlcial through whose hands it passes haa to account for It to the one from whom he received it, so that if it is lost it can be traced by our vouchers to the very point where it disap peared, even into the hands of the rarrier who took it out to deliver. Registered let ters do sometimes go a.itray, but the risk attending los or theft is too great to make either carelessness or dishonesty profita ble. The government does not huid itself responsible to yon, bat the last posfma-oer Or clerk or carrier who is found to hav? had your letter in his possession is likely to lose his official head, and if the evi denceof crookwineseis strong against bfan is liable to go to tho stnto prifou for a term of years. ''Finally, if yonr great object is speed, you may find it best to use the special de livery. We sell you a peculiur kind of 10 cent stamp, which you put on your letter besides its regular postage. The instant the letter is taken out of the box into which yon drop it It Is hurried Into the first mail, on top of the whole pileof other letters, with the stamp sticking up, so us to catch the eye of evi-ry clerk who han dles the package. When it mchtl 'he town to whb h it is addressed, it is picked out without an Instant's delay and MBt to your corresjif indent by a sp'-rial DUHMI per, so that if the ordinary carrier deliv eries are Infrequent It may reach Its d tination one, two, three or four hours be fore it would If left to take the usual course. Tho messenger who delivers it takes with him a look, in which the re cipient of the letter signs a rueeipt, noting tho hour and minute, so thit if any MM tion ever arises nfu-rward you can have the messenger's book hunted up. "So, yon see, we have something to meet every need, and the way to make sure of the U'st result Is to enow Just the right thing. If you are sending some thing whose value you don't care much about, but tyhicli you are In a great, hurry to push through, don't register, but use the ppeelal delivery. If you are sending some thing which ytm arc in no haste about, but, you want to make absolutely suru with your own eyes that the right person has re ceived it, don't botbaj with money orders or special delivery li Iters, but use the reg lstry. If you are sending a sum of money simply nnd find It. inconvenient to use n ehecl? or draft, but want to assure the same afety of payment and don't mind letting ithe postoflice people know what you are doing, take out a money order. If the Amount you are sending is too small to fworry about and all you core for is to send lit in aome form which won't tell tides through tho anvi !ope, buy a postal note." t Washington Star. The. American Olive. The growth of the ollvu Is to be. It scorns to mo, one of tho leyling nnd most per manent Industries of southern California. It will give us, what it is nearly imHjsalble to buy now, pure olive oil, in place of tho cottonseed and lard mixture' in general use. It is a most wholesome and palatable Article of food. Those whoso chief experi ence of tho olivo is tho large, coarse and not agreeable .Spanish variety, used only ah an uppetizer, know little of the value of the best varieties as food, nutritious us meat, and always delicious. Qood bread And adish of pickled olives make an excel lent meal. The sort known aa the Mission (Jive, planted by the Franciscans a century ngo, is general ly grown now, nnd tho best fruit is from the older trees. The most BUOMaafu attempts iu culti vating the olivo aud putting it on the mar ket have lxvii made by Mr. F. A. Kimball and Mr. Kllwood Cooper. The experi ment! have R me far enough to show t hai, the industry is very remunerative. The best olivo oil I have ever tasted anyivheie is that produced from the Cooper and Kimball orchards; but not enough is pro duced to supply the local demaud. Mr. Cooper baa written a careful treatise on olivo culture, which will bo of great son loe to all growers, The art of pickling is not yet mastered, and pwhafMI some other variety will be preferred to tbe Old alia Ion Cot the table. A mature olivo grove iu good bearing is a fortune. I foci SUN tb.it within nve.-it y live years this will lie one of tho must prof I table industries In California, mid that the demand for pure oil and cdiblo fruit In the I niU'd States will drivo out the adulter ated and inferior present commercial products. Hut California can easily rtiiu Its reputation by mloptiiiff the European systems of adulteration. -Charles Dudley Warner iu Harper's.

Iu UttO several eowa were lauded, and itl 1611 about LOO bead more were brought to the plantation. This was the origin of tho cattle business iu America. In order to encourage the cattle industry to the fullest possible extant an order was passed forbidding the slaughter of any animal of the kind under penalty Of death Under thia restriction the number of cattle increased to 30,0W iu VirgMiia alone by the cud of tho ycej 1080 The first cat lie brought to New England arrived at Plymouth iu IflM, They were Imported from England by Governor Wiuslow Three heifers and a bull made up the party.

In 1080 bOUt W were Imported for the colony of Massachusetts Day. During the yean last above mentioned, 108 cattle had been sent from Texel, Holland, into New York, so that by the year ltW0 there were a good many bead of horned cattle iu tho col ontes.

It: is D t genera'.!)' knowu that the hot test, most arid desert iu the world is In the United States, but such is the fact. Tho Cocapah desert is small, but it Is the most dangerous of any in the known world. Standing upon the mountain range to the cast, looking across the to miles of plain to another mountain range on the west, with glimpses of two small la'ses midway between, it does not appear that it requires any extraordinary feat of danger or endnrance to cross the plain. And this has caused theloesef many lives. The sand of that desert is so hot that in a few miles tho shoes will be literally burned iiff tho traveler's feet, beasts will be over come before half the distance is ancom- asai d, and the adventurous traveler dies In from without and thirst within. Many have been known to attempt the journey, ar. l but few have been known to return. These have gone no farther than the first lake, and finding it salt water have beaten n retreat. The nearest lake has been reached often enough to know that it ebbs and flows with the gulf of California, and the water ii the same, hence it must 1 a part of that body, aithough separated from it by CO or 70 miles of solid earth and a high range of mountains.

As they drove away an old lady rushed out of tho honsn, gestic ulating wildly anil calling on them to stop. 1'hoy did this, and sbo ran up, all out of breath, shouting: "How is my sou?
