XMAS ADVICE FROM
Send Gifts Early and Pack
Them Well, Is Chief
SOME DETAILS SUGGESTED.
WOODEN BOXES SHOULD BE
USED AND GLASS WELL PRO
TECTED SIMPLE RULES TO
GUARD AGAINST LOSS.
People are being urged by the ex
press companies to ship tLelr Christ
mas packages early in order to insure
prompt transmission and delivery.
Along this line they are sending out
the following suggestions:
Do you expect to send your mother,
sweetheart or friend a Christmas pres
ent this year? If so, and you find it
necessary to patronize Borne express
company, it would be well to bear in
mind the following suggestions:
Ship your package early, by the
eighteenth of December, if possible.
The express company will give you a
small label to paste on the package,
reading, "Don't open until Christmas."
This will Insure the package reaching
Its destination before Christmas and
gives the additional pleasure to the re
cipient of the gift of having it Christ
Um of Wooden Boxes.
Use wooden boxes for packing. Glass
or fragile articles should be well pro-
tected. It way cost a few cents more
but the danger of loss or damage is
very much reduced. True If the ship
ment is lost r damaged the express
company will pay for it, but that will
give your friend no pleasure.
Write theaddress in full, State,
county, city, street and number, on the
box or package with Ink or crayon.
Tags are frequently torn off and lost.
If you want to prepay the charges,
write the word "paid" In large, plain
letters on the package.
Insist on a receipt and see that the
amount paid is marked on the receipt
and package and the value of the pack
age declared thereon.
To Guard Against Loss.
Write your own address in full some
where on the pekage, following the
prefix "From "
Inclose a card in each box or pack-
(Your address here.)
(Consignee's address here.)
This, in order that should the outer
markings be destroyed, the inner mark
will insure prompt forwarding and de
livery. If not convenient to ship in wooden
boxes, use strong rapping paper (not
newspaper), and tie with strong cord.
If package contains anything of per
ishable nature, write the word "Per
ishable" in large, plain letters, on the
box, or package, to insure special at
tention and first delivery.
If you will observe these suggestions
you will greatly assist In insuring the
prompt delivery of your gift in good

port Succumbs to
MANY FINANCIAL TROUBLES
WAS INTERESTED IN THREE
BANKS CLOSED BY STATE AUD
ITOR AND WAS INDICTED FOR
Logansport, Ind., Dec. 14 Daniel
P. Baldwin, former Attorney-General ,
of Indiana, prominent as a lecturer, !
traveler and writer, fell dead here Sun-;
day afternoon. Apoplexy was the !
cause, it is said.
A year ago Mr. Baldwin's private
banks at Goodland, Fowler and Am
bia, Ind., were closed by order of Au
ditor of State Billheimer. Since then
Mr. Baldwin, who was 71 years of age,
struggled to untangle the affairs of
these and other institutions in which
he was interested, surrendering his
fortune to secure creditors. On No
vember 5 last the Benton county grand
jury indicted him on two counts,
charging embezzlement, and he was re
leased on bond.
Baldwin was a trustee of Wabash
college at Crawfordsville, Ind., and do
nor of the Baldwin prize for oratory.
In a will written some time ago, he
was declared to have bequeathed many
thousand dollars to the college, but
most of his property was swept away
when the banks were glosed on the al
legation that depositors' money was
used to finance investments in Arkan
sas timber lands.
Baldwin was prominent in republi
can politics for many years, having
been a partner of Dudley D. Pratt, his
uncle. He was defeated for the repub
lican nomination as judge of the su
preme court, but graceful acceptance
of defeat won him the nomination for
attorney-general, to which office he
was elected during the campaign that
elected Porter governor of Indiana.
In 1892, after a quarrel with Pres
ident Harrison, he took the stump for
the national democratic committee, but
his tour was cut short when the use of
an injudicious phrase directed at for
eigners in a speech made in Milwau
kee, brought forth a bombardment of
eggs from a democratic marching club
composed of Poles.
Campaign for G. A. R. Com
When. Major Lacey, of Fountain City
makes his campaign for Commander
of the G. A. R., Department of Indi
ana, he will find strong opposition.
Six candidates have announced their
candidacy and others are expected to
be heard from. Major Lacey will en

dorsement by his regiment at its last
reunion. The Major is a member of
the Vicksburg monument commission.
