WAYNE GET MEN INTERESTED IN AN "INTERNATIONAL AUTOMOBILE LEAGUE", THEN COLLECT FROM EACH $10 IN FEES. Mrs. Juan Estrada, wife of General Estrada, the leader of the N'icaraguan revolutionists. Mrs. Estrada is one of the handsomest and most aecom pliched women of her country. She is of a determined character and has been of constant encouragement and assistance to her husband in his ef forts to sieze the reins of power in the little Central American republic. POSTAL EMPLOYES ARE QUITE WEARY They Have Been Worked Up To the Maximum Limit Last Two Weeks. The local police have been asked to be on the lookout for two Buffalo men who are alleged to be headed in this direction and who are purported to be the illegal agents for the In ternational Automobile League. The men are alleged to be professional sharpers and are wanted in several cities in the state on an alleged fraud ulent money making scheme. The bunco men were in Fort Wayne recently and, it is said, while in that city persuaded about fifteen automo bile owners to become members of the International Automobile League, the membership fee being $10. What the Game Is. By taking out a membership in the league, the men said, it would entitle the holder to secure automobile sup plies, tires and automobiles at from 16 to 65 percent discount from the regular prices. The solicitors exercis ed the greatest secrecy with the busi ness and as an inducement to keep their prospective customers quiet on the subject, told them that the league was contemplating purchasing one of the large garages in that city where these reduced rate supplies might be obtained. The men in Fort Wayne who bit on the game became alarmed and sought information, which disclosed the fact that the graft had been successfully ( worked in several other cities in the state and the men were not legal rep resentatives of the league. It was in view of the fact that Richmond is re garded as a good automobile town that the local police were asked to aid in the search for the men. It is believed that the sharpers will un doubtedly attempt to work their game in this city. Midnight services, to celebrate the advent of Christmas, will be held tonight at St. Paul s Episcopal church. The following is the program: Processional Hymn "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" Kyrie Eleison Elvey Gloria Tibi ".220.127.116.11 " Garrett Hymn "All My Heart This Night Rejoices" Gloria Patri Ousels Offertory Solo "Angels from the Realms of Glory" .

To thoroughly know the virtue of a medicine you must investigate tha cures and see if they prove perma nent. Doan's Kidney Pills stand this test, and plenty of proof exists right here In Richmond. People who testi fied years ago to relief from back ache, kidney and urinary disorders, now declare that relief was perma nent and the cure perfect. How can any Richmond sufferer longer doubt the evidence? Miss Frances Hamilton, 27 N. Ninth Street, Richmond, Ind., says: "I was annoyed greatly by pains through the small of my back and in my should ers. When my sister advised me to try Doan's Kidney Pills, I procured a supply at A. G. Luken & Co.'s drug store and two boxes freed me from the trouble. I think highly of Doan's Kidney Pills and consider them worthy of recommendation." . The above statement was given in July 1906 and on December 12, 1908, Miss Hamilton added: "I have had no return of kidney complaint since uoan s juaney Fills cured me. I am always glad to say a good word in praise of this excellent kidney rem edy." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn. Co.. Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United States.

BUSINESS REMEMBER FRIENDS Several of the county officials re membered their friends today by giv ing away fruit and cigars. Township Trustee James Howarth had several boxes of cigars and a barrel of fine flavored winter apples which he in vited the callers t his office to share in while County Superintendent C. W. Jordan gave several dozen of Florida oranges as Christmas favors to his friends. "Will we ever survive this period of stremiousness?" is the cry of the tired mail clerks and weary carriers at the local post office. The receipts at the post office today amounted to about $1,000, and, it is said, the busi ness last year was nothing compared to the enormous amount of mail handled yesterday and today. About 50,000 one cent stamps were sold. Ac cording to Postmaster Spekenhier there appears to be a run on the one cent variety this year, and the orders have been multiplied and tripled in order to meet the ever increasing de mand. Hundreds and perhaps it would be safe to say thousands of packages are piled up in every conceivable bit of space in the postoffice, apparently in a disordered mass. The clerks work for hours without making any visable impression on the huge heap, but no time is allowed for breathing spells, and they keep on laboring at their tiresome task until they are almost ready to drop over from sheer exhaus tion and fatigue. Four Extra Clerks. Notwithstanding the fact that four extra clerks have been put on. the work today was the heaviest in the history of the local office, and a glance into the mailing department causes one to wonder that the work is ever accomplished. And the postman also had a weary j day of it. Some of them carried sacks weighing fifty or sixty pounds, stuff ed and jammed with every kind of Christmas present imaginable. There will be only one delivery of mail to morrow, but the post office will be open from S to 10 o'clock in the morn ing. The window will be open as us ual on Sunday morning from 9 to 10 o'clock and doubtless hundreds of de layed Christmas presents will be giv en out through the window on that day. u is suggested that persons call for their mail if possible on Sun day to lessen the task of delivering the large accumulation of mail on Monday.

A complete list of prizes is on the bulletin board in the post rooms and every hustler, both old and new, should study the list and enter into the contest to land one of the prizes.

All the boys of Post C are anticipat ing a great Christmas. Everyone is expecting a great lot of good things from Santa Claus. This is true - in most all cases and especially is this the fact in the following case that came to our attention. The following letter, picked up In the club room, i . - shows some of the boys to be serious with this Christmas tiusiness: Richmond, Ind., Dec. 1, '00. Dear Santa Claus: I. am a dear little boy, so very small, but would like to have a lot of nice things for Christmas. I have not been so bad this paot year and will be good the coming year if I can. I have not many playmates, so bring me a lot of toys so I can have lots of fun all by myself. Bring me a pack of cards or two. a few chips, several boxes of ci gars and anything you might have to eat. Bring me all the T. P. A. checks you can get as I ar.i saving these so I ran buy out the cb'.b rooms some day. If you have anything for Uncle Jim Lewis, leave it at our house and we will take care of it for him.

Little Willie Quigg told me he didn'a want anything for Christmas, so you can leave his things at my house. Your old friend, MARION SHREEVES. P. S. I have decided to hang up a dozen pairs of my stockings. They are so short. The national board of directors have reconsidered their action in appoint ing Ia Beaume at the head of the claims department and have concluded to let Mr. La Beau me down and out, entirely, after Jan. 1. Ben Bart el is again able to be on duty after several weeks' sickness. He has, however, not fully recovered from his illness. Ray Mendenhall has been covering the territory formerly traveled by Frank Coffin in the interest of Pogue, Miller & Co.
