Show a Marked Increase Over Last Year—Heavy Order Business. Percentage? of Net Revenues Almost the Largest in the State. The business at the poatoffioo daring tbe past quarter and year, shows a very gratifying iaorease over corresponding periods. The following information, compiled by Postmaster Klaus, shows the money order business transacted during tbe quarter ending Deo. 31et, 1897, as follows:. There were 1498 domeeticuovders issued aggregating $12,59L6L Tbe feee on them wens 994.43. International money orders were issued aa follows:: On Sweden, 9 aggregatiag. $ 37 00 On Denmark, 2. 39 00 On Norway, 2: 68 00 On Canada 21 225 75 On England 8 44 16 On Germany 8, 82 00 Fees on same ST. 30'. Total $503.41 Making the total amount of all money orders issued $13,180 4a. In the same (quarter in *96. there were 1,078 orders issued wbiob aggregated but $7,912.23, $5,300 lees than the amount issued in tbe same period this year. This is an in? crease of about 60' per cent. There ie also a deoided gain in. th» amount oS money orders paid and: re paid, bat it is not so large. Some 4dl domestio orders aggregating $5,91&86 and 1& international orders aggregating. 8454.50 were paid. This is an incnease of 8401.78 over tbe amour paid in the aame quarter last year. The reoeipts from stamps* stamped envelopes, postal cards amounted to 81,995.59 in the last quarter box lents $215.90. This is an increase of $23St74 over the same quarter in *96—9 per cent. Except for tbe first quarter of tbs year there has been an increase of ova? #100 a quarter over last year. Tbe total amount received in *96 from stamps, box rent, etc., aggregated $7,039.29 against $7,263.89 this year. This is a disbursing office for the pay of tbe doaen resident railway postal clerks and during the last twelve months Postma8ter Klaus has paid theoi over 813,800—over $1,150 a month. From tbe report of the auditor of the postoffioe department for th« !i oal year ending June 30, 1897, it is learned that this office is one of the most economically conducted of any in tbe stste, only being exceeded by Fargo by one per cent. The gross reoeipts of tbe office for the year are given at $6,975 48 and the total ex pensas at 82,517.52 leaving a net revenue for the government of $4,457.96, the ex pense of maintenance being bnt 36 per cent. In this connection it may be in teresting to know that it is 52 per oent in Grand Forks. Comparing Fargo and Grand Forks, whose expenses for fre^ delivery and total expenses are within a few hundred dollars of each other—prac tically the same—and whose gross re oeipts are respectively $31,000 and $20, 000, it is found tbat Fargo produoed a net revenue of 820,000 and Grand Forks but 89,000. Although the United States has some 8622,000 pendiug in suits against postmasters, contractors and bidders, yet in North Dakota there are but two suits pending. One of these is against O. L. Freeman, late postmaster of Grand Forks, a judgment for $23.23, and a suit against Wm. E. Mansfield, formerly of this city, but late postmaster of Minot, for 8198.23 on money orders.

Yankton's School Text Book System Under Investiga tion by Board. The board of education ie trying to get all tbe Jamestown oity school bonds refunded at a lower rate of interest. At present Cornell univereity holds $25, 000 in 7 per cent bonda not due for five' yeara. The state sphool land board has $22,000 of 6 per ceot bonde ieeued in 1894. Under a recent zaling off tbe state board it will change tbe6«per oent bonda into 4 per oenta. The annual interest on tbe $25,000 issue iB $1*750" end the present holders will* not release the bonds without tbat aum ie paid as a bonus. The Jamestown boo*d of edu cation is endeavoring^ to' get the state" board to pay tbia bonns a ad take tbe bonds, which are gUbedgeaecvkritiee-in every way. If the slate* board can loan at 4 per cent on em&Ufeuma andi pot out. money on farm mortgagee,, it is argued tbat it can well afford* to take the James town bonds at the proposition offered. If the school land bourd would do BD it will make a savings to tbe taxpayers of tbia oity of nearly. $6,006) in interest in next five years. It is a fine opportunity for the state sohool board to invest some of their surplus caeht. in the securi ties of North Dakota taxpayers. Tbe school board' ia considering. a rental systf m.of text books for tbe city schools. A plan., introduced in the city aohoola of Yankton,. Sv £.• three ears ago, and which ia said to have proved, suooeeeful, is under osnsidevation. Under that plan the books are pur chased by. th&teohool board storeetly irocnj publishers,. at a discount from the lifet price, and Tented to pupils at a small.: annual rental. T&*schedule of rents i'a» Yankton as- fallows: 1st grade, 29* cents 2nd .grade, 25. cento 3rd grade, 35 cents 4th and 5th grades, 55 cents Gib grade, 8Q oentB, and 7tk and 8th grades, 85 cents. These rentals pay for,,all .the books p,apils use in tbe year and most be paid »whethea the pupil euters-Aithe beginning of the- year or toward the aJoee oftbe-tierm. The aim is to plaoe tbe rent ai such a low figure that every one oaa aay it. When the rental tesk-book, system was adopted it was thought that this.schedule of rents would only partly replace tbe books, but Superintendent \T£rt says- this is the third, year the schools have worked the.plaa and it is jfound that the schedule of rente, though [merely nominal, will replace and repair all books through their life time. Hbe rentals secured in the tirst five grades of the school comprise the source oS rev enue for a circulating library. The aggregate cost of the boo!ts now in use in the Yankton schools ie §L,500 and it has not yet been found Decesssry to replace any of tbe books. The books in. tbe primary grades will last four yeajs. in tbeliigher grades somewhat longer. The last school seport at Yankton says the ohildren take good care of the books. Tbe books are covered with man ilia paper, renewed annually. It »fairly estimated tbat the saving to tbe patrons of the school was $1»300 a year for tbe two yeara the plan has been tried. There are other other advantages of tbe plan. The best text books in the market are bad. The number of per sons interested first purchases and renewals 19 reduced to a minimum. In a sense eaoh pupil can be supplied with ten books as cheaply as with three. ID the case of ten books he is distributing the wear over a larger number. On ao oount.of this pupils are supplied with a larger number of books, thereby aiding instruction. It has been estimated tbat using the system in the sohools here, up to and including tbe eigthth grade, it would effect a saving of a thousand dollars a year to pupils. The plan is attractive and has advantages over free text books and will be thoroughly looked into. Yankton is said to have originated the system. The Normal class in tha Jamestown High school WBB started last week. It now numbers six members with several more coming this week. Any person expecting to teach in the state next sum mer is entitled to enter tbe class. Friday after the close of tbe session the sohool houses were thoroughly dis infected under Supt. Schmidt's super vision, over 100 pounds of sulphur being used. OLYDES AND PERGHERONS Broken to harness. All heavy draft*animals, hardy and ready for work.
