irovtruiuoot oIIIl'UU aud the other for
every one else Tbe dispatches of tho
government are carried by mounted
postmen with tolerable awlftnoss. Thoir
arrlage and delivery are under the
direct supervision of the Ministry of
War In I'uktn. The people at large are
not allowed to aond mall by the olUcial
carriers. Thoy are obli;ed to transact
all thoir postal busiuosa lhroutharauch

In evory Chinese clly there are sev

thing intrustvd to its care, and In case
of loss of valuable pupon or goods reim
burses tho sender without delay. The
contents of evory package, howovor,
must bo exactly declared at the time of
mailing) as the postage varies with very
trivial variations of value.
Tbo postman of this branch of the
mall service walk or ride on asies'from
station to station. With some eighty
pounds of mall matter a postman covers
about three mlloi an hour. The minute
he arrives at the end of the route he
transfer, bis burden to the shoulders of
another poituian. who. whatever the
time of day and whatever the weathor,
hurrtos oif to deliver it at the noxt sta
tion. To keep himself ready for all emer
gencies tho Chinese postman nevor fud
dles Ills wiu by ovorcatlng. Ho always
takeunry light meals. "Kate himself
only seven-tenths full," the Chinese
ay. Ho is usually a man of fine phys
ique and loss afraid of ghosts, wltcbes,
otc., than fortvnlno out of evory fifty
of his fellow countrymen. In faot, an
applicant for admission to the service is
generally subjected lo a kind of elvll
aervlce examination of his courage In
withstanding the horrors of supernatural
phenomena. If ha stands the tost with
out quailing and proves that he has not
Incurred tho enmity of any bad spirit
which wight Interfere with him in tho
discharge of his duties, he has taken a
long step townrd procuring his appoint
ment. This singulur condition for ad
mission to the service Is universally
oonsldured to bo quite proper, for the
average Chlnamun Is so afraid of spirits
and the dark that the slightest noise by
tho waysido atnight would cause him to
drop whatever he was carrying and dart
oif like a shot to the nearest settlement.
An ordinary letter may he sent 1M
miles or moio for about eight cent.
Thirty por cent of tho postngo is col
lected In advance from the sender. This
amount covers the exponao of trans
portation, and Is a guarantee against
fraud on the part of tho sender. Tho
other seventy per cent is oollocted from
the receiver, and represents the prollt
of the servloo.
The postmen often carry Tory ralua
ablo mails. Traders Intrust to them
drafts and stlvor bullion without hesita
tion. To protect tho most Important
mails small guards of soldiers are often
used, or troopj of fighting oivlllans who
havo especially trained themselves to
fight uiall-rolibors. Three, four or flvo
of theso oivlllans are always ready to
tight at least a doien hlghwaymon. The
mannur In whioh they proparo thorn
selvos for suoh unevon combats Is an
iulioratlon of a pugilist's training in
punching the bag. From the roof of the
empty shod in which the prsutlco Is
taken hang on ropes ten hoavy sand
bags. Tho man who Is learning to be a
guard stands in tho midst of theso bags,
while his instructor on tho outside sets
them to swinging. The man among the
hags then strlkos out right and loft
with his fists for the purposo of punch
ing tho bags away ftom biin. As soon
as ho learns to keopall tho uagi In mo
tion without letting thorn touuh him he
is pronounced ready lo go oa tho road to
knock out mall-robbers. -N. Y. Hun.

not look over forty years of age, though

1870, when cotton was commanding a
very high price, he, In ceeipany with a
number of friends, went into tho busi
ness of raising the cnll oductontho

wero inhabited largely by cannibals,
and white men, though assisUnl by the
friendly natives, carried their lives in
their hands, aud went constantly armed.
"The sister of my first wife," said the
Hnron yosterday. ''was shot down by the

Sandy MoFaddon did not got along
vory fast as atump-epeakor for his
ward. Ho was at perfect liberty at all
times to gird up his loins and go about
to help oloot some other follow, but he
never was forced Into any affioo of trust
or emolument himself. So he quit mak
ing s pooches tor the boys and went into
businosa as an auctionoer.
Ho found this business oongenlnl, and
It was not long until he mado his mark.
Home of Handy'a oratorical efforts are
woll worth preserving:
"Now, la lies and gents," ho said oa
one occasion, "lot me call your atten
tion to this beautiful oil painting en
titled 'Washington Crossing tho Dela
ware.' Observe, if you please, tho at
titude of tho Father of Ills Country as
he stands in tho bow of tho boat and
does the heavy yolling, while tho men
at tho oars do the work. Heo him; with
ills august finger lifted pointing tho
way through the floating lco and urging
the men to put in their best licks. In
buying this pluturo, ladios and gents,
you buy a picture of tho noblo Wash
ington in his most horoio attitude. The
orosalng of tho Delaware was an event
of tho utmost importanco in our coun
try's history. It Washington bad not
orosscd the Deluwaro on that memor
able oeoasion whore would he havo
boen?"
"He would have been on dls sldo,"
shouted a fellow on tho outskirts of the
crowd. .
Sandy checked the levity and wenton:
"That was an occasion and this isa
plctjro to stir ovory patriotic heart.
And what am I hid for 11? Do I hear a
dollar? Look at tho framo, ladios and
gents. There's a frame that is worth a
dollar, .to say nothing of the subject
and tho ploturo. Do I hoar ninety cents
for this magnificent masterpiece? Not
oven nlnoty cents? Why, ladies and
gents. Is it tho rich, led Ameri
can blood that dunces in vpur veins, or
1 it tho sluggish, pale gray liquor that
trickles through the llritlsh subject?
Does not the sight of tho star-splanglcd
banner stir your pulic? ' And yot I do
not hoar ninety cents for 'Washington
Crossing tho Delaware.' I am ainased
and pained. 'Was tho Revolutionary war
fought in vain? Was blood spilled on
Hunker Hill to bo so soon forgotten?
Think of Valloy Forgo and tho Buffer
ings of the Continental soldiors during
that awful winter, and then give me a
hid on this ploturo. What! no bldl La
dies and gents, I Intended noxt to put
up this magnificent, AitTerlcan oaglo,
stuffed in the highest stylo of tho art,
but I can't do It in tho fuco of this senti
ment. In tlila crowd, tho birds with
the broad and sweeping wing wouldn't
fetch tho price of a plucked jaybird. I
will now proceed to sell this lieantlful

Worthy Of Trust.
"A tourist climbing u'p 'V mountain

stuff that will liear his whole weight,
one that he can lean on in confidence,
one Unit is worthy of trust and that
will uphold him should his foot slip.
So an iuvulid, in search of health.
They dislike to full into tho hands of

Thoy want to uso the proper remedy
for their ailment in the start. They
ure only willing to take medicine on
condition that it will muke them well.
Now there is, one rembdy whose offoct
is a certainty. It has lieeu tried aud
touted in thousands of instances and
has never failed. It is called Smith's
Tonic Syrup. Its principle was dis
covered by the emiuoutDr. John Bull,
of Louisville, Ky. If. is pleasant to
take, ana possesses all the good medi
ciuul qualities uf quinine, but is froo
from nil of its objectionable qualities.
It will euro chills uud fever when

Ita influence is positive, and it is a
remedy worthy of trust.

Trade With South America.
From an open lotter by .Alford
Bulcli on "Trudo With South Ameri-
cu, in the Coutury for June, we
nuoto as follows: "American maun
fucturcrs have lieeu iu tho habit of
forwarding to Columbia such goods
as they thought tho Columbians would
buy, and huve then lieeu surprised
to lind they made no sales. Many of
theso goods wore absolutely dead
stock for the simple reason that tho
people had not an idea of how to use
them or could not apply thom. What
is tho use, for example, of shipping a
McCormick reaper to furmors that
grow no wheat f Some of the goods
sent out could not bo sold because,
in a country of canoes aad puck mules,
thoy could not be carried. For in
stance, the standard American white
cotton is woven twenty-seven inches
wide. This cauuot be sold hi Colum
bia, because with pack-mufos the
caro-u, or pack, must not liemoie than
twonty-two inches long, as otherwise
it will gall the hips aud shoulders of
the animals. American cotton can be
roped on a pack-mulo, with the IxilLs
lushed vertically, but such n pack is
very ant to tret disununsred. and the
cai'fcro, or muleteer, charges r;ore
