TJp to lac first of September Doctor
lWoOoj gave all the opportunity of plac-
Uiemselves under treatment at tbe
rie ef 3 a moatli. Tliat all who placea
thefWuves under treatment were to be
trMubnoi for one month, but just as
long as C?ey needed treatment, at this
rate. DaotorjfeaCoy endeavored to make
as plain as hconnld. Tills -was the
Gseoatlal thins in Uie offer, the thins about
It that made it a splendid ptoo: of benevo
lence that the $8 rate was given not
for a month, but that it was given to all
"UNTIL TUBr WERE CURED.
Now. as the month following this offer
passes, many of the patients who placed
Ujemfcolvos under treatment during August
ask as a special privilege that to which they
are plainly entitled, i. e., that they be
avowed to renew their treatment for a
second month at the $3 rate. It is from
them that Doctor McCoy learns that the
report that the S3 rate was given only
for one month was circulated.
Now, Doctor McCoy is not accustomed to
being misunderstood, at least not upon
essential matters. He has tried to make
the lessons he lias sought to teach very
plain. He has taught many lessons in
Ibis city, but he finds that he has one
more to teach, and tiiis lesion is that
he means literally what he says m every
announcement. In order to make thisles
oa plain, he win continue the offer of
the $3 rate until the 1st of November
All new patients placing theui
kcIvuk uuder treatment, and till old
putieuts who reuew their treatment
before ICoveuiber 1st, will be treated
UNTIL CUHI2D at tbe rate of $3 a.
mouth. This applies to all diseases.

PASSKD "WORTHLESS CHECKS.
Simon Green's Method of Realizing
Simon P. Green, a middle-nged colored
man, was arrested last night by Detective
Ki'martin, charged with passing worthier-,
checks. Green lias rather the appearance
of an Industrious colored man than a forger
and does not seem tu bean expert In the
Several days ago he went Into "W. E.
Ch andlce's cigar, store at the Ebbltt
House and purchased a half dozen cigars.
In payment he tendered his own check,
draws to Simon P. Green or bearer and
signed by himself, on the Ohio National
Bank for $1.75. In order to convince
the cigar dealer that his check was good
he produced a deposit hook on the same
hank, which showed a balance of between
5 and SO--
The hand writing in the bodyof the check
was different from that of the slguature,
but as the negry appeared honest Mr.
Chandlee gave him the cigars and .$1.50
in cliange. Green said he was employed at
the new city postoffice building, and If
there was any difficulty in getting tho
check cashed he would come in and make
it all right the next day.
When the check was presented at the
bank by Mr. Chandlee 's son it was learned
that no such person as Simon P. Green had
an account there, and the paper was, of
course, worthies. The matter was re
ported to the police, and last night De
tective Kilmartin found the man on Penn
sylvania avenue and locked him up in
No. 1 Elation.
Several other persons have made similar
complaint to the police of being swindled
in the same manner by Green. His checks
were all drawn for small amounts and the
net sum which he realized was not large.
Green will appear in policeeourttoday.and
the police will then have several cases of
false pretenses and forgery against him.

ILLEGIBLE TYPE IS BARRED
Forty-Six Thousand Postmasters
'Without Proper Outfits Illegi
bility of Stamps May Hesult In
IhMimvul Reiisooh Set Forth by
the- Postoffice Department.
The Postoffice Departments intends to
have a legible postmark and back stamp
on every letter passing through the mails,
or it means 10 know the reason why. Out
of 70,000 postmasters it has been deter
mined by the departrnentthat only 24,000
have a complete cancellation kit.
Perry S. TIeath, Pir.st Assistant Post
master General, on May 14 last sent a circular-letter
to every po-tmaster calling
attention to tho neceity lor legibility.
"Legible postmarking of mail mailer I
or the grealyst Importunes, to the public
as evidence before the courts, in business
transactions conducted through the mails
and in fixing the responsibility when mall
matter has been improperly handled by
post Tiiastcrr" or other pohtal employes. The
frequency of complaints in regard to de
fective postmarking makeu It netesary
for the department to udopt&evere ma asures
to remedy the trouble. Illegible post
marking Is generally tlua either to careless
ness in the method of nandllng the stamp,
improper condition of iuklng pad, failure
to keep the slump clean, improper adjust
ment of type in stamp or failure to place
letters on u rubber pad or some other
elastic tturlace when postmarking them
Much or the postmarking, especially that
at the smaller offices, is a reflection upon
the postal service. The department am
siders failure In this respect a serious mat
ter, which must be remedied at once."
Later, Mr Heath caused to be sunt to
each postmaster a card calling for im
pressions of postmarking and receiving
stamps, and aklng for information as to
the quantity and character of the type.
The returns showed thi.t G07 postmasters
hud neither stamps nor type; that 1.4U0
used stamps, the impressions fiom which
were illegible; that 1.000 were legible,
hut very poor, and that but 24,000 stamp
ing outfits were complete.
Then, to gain as much Information as
possible about the poclnark&, Mr. Heath
followed up liis circular of May 14 by
one 011 Auguet 23, which was as follows.
'IW-uuiktors are requested to secure
from tht patrons' of their several of rices
envelopes showing illegible or unsatis
factory postmarking or backstamping, and
forward the same to this oifico, Division
of Pos'offlce Supplies with a statement
showing the name of the office where the
uu.iUrtfnctory postmaking or baefcstump
Ing was done.
"Legible postmaking on every letter
paseing through the mulls is required.
Postmasters have been given fair notice,
and future failure of duty in this respect
will be called to the attention of theofficer
ha .'ing charge of appointments, and re
movals." The department has Issued a circular,
of instructions as to the use and care or
stamps, und requesting postmasters to
send in requisitions for nuch outfits as they
require that their work of cancellation
may be properly done. Michael V. Louis,
chief of the Division of Postoffice Supplies,
Is busy in filling these requisitions.
To help along the good Work begun,
Postmaster General Gary means to adopt
the best design for canceling stamp which
can b? invented. Yesterday he ordered
that Alex. Grant, assistant .superintendent
Railway Mall Service; M. W. Louis, su
perintendent division of postoffice sup
plies, and W. 'II. Lamar, a clerk in the
office of the First Assistant Postmaster
iienrrnl, be appointed a committee for
the purpose of examining new designs
or Improvements in the canceling stamp
now in use in the postal service, und to
report to the Postmaster General the
result of their investigations, with such
recommendations as they in ay deem proper

Yesterdav's market Avas again mostly in
the hands of the bulls, despite predictions
to the contrarv. and a strong belief on
the part of many that the end of the rise
had come for a long time. The market
was not so active and it presented the
evidence of profit taking in certain stocks
as avcII ab of decreased paiticipatiou by
the commission houses, but despite these
matters prices adA-anct;d and. there was
strong cAidrnce that a good many heaA-y

of speculative attention', the conclusion
as to a number of them being that their

Mr. Carley has gone back to his old love,
a magnificent optimism, and is predicting
that nothing can stop the market from
going much higher. This is after tAvo or
three dubious moments during the last
week. He says:
'I have not felt as confident of the
market for thirty days as I do tonight, and
I arn speaking of the general market. The
reason is I have received such assurances
from the great financiers that I believe
they intend to stand by the market. Some
of the AA'eak holders have been-warned that
they must not carry such a load. In other
Avonls, they are managing by private
negotiation and private Avarning to keep
doAvn the dangerous elements. It looks to
mo tonight as though the Avhole market
Avould be higher early next week and
possibly tomorrow. A man can buy almost
anythingwitb good speculative promise."

The earnings of the Wabash fbr the second

"VYlllet A Gray say of Sugar: "The
time of the raw sugar market Is such that
unother advance must coniD AVlthln a short
time. The Sugar company remainsout of
the market. Quotations are still below
the parity of European beet sugar. There
lias been a good demand for refined, and
the fact that refiners have not increased
their output has made conditions appear
stronger than they actually are.'
Hock Island directors will place that
stork on a -1 per cent basis next week.
The earnings ot the road are excellent and
prospects are fine. Still, 4. per c'Ut Is
