glowing accounts of Gandil that Grif

Still the old fox was skeptical. He
knew of Gandll's failing, and in order
to make double 6ure he wired his
scout "Has he learned to hit a
curve ball"" The answer he received
the next day set his suspicions at
rest and Gandil became the property

Considerable agitation has resulted
among more than 400 postmasters be
cause of the passage of an amend
ment to the postoffice appropriation
bill by the house of representatives of
congress. The amendment affects the
rating of posfofflces and may result
in smaller salaries for postmasters in
the smaller cities Including Ogden anil
Salt Lake, if the bill passes the sen
ate and is signed by the president.
As It now stands the amendment
provides that, in computing the rating
and the salaries of first-class offices,
which are based on the sale ol
stamps, the amount received from the
sale of parcel post stamps shall be de
ducted first md the computation made
on the sale of ordinary stamps. Since
the parcel post law provides that all
matter formerly considered as fourth
class matter must bear special parcel
post stamps and as that class of mat
ter amounts to about 15 per cent of
