First Assistant Postmaster General
Jones says that the Poeloffice Depart
ment has already begun to experience
some indications of the approach of
the holidays in the matter of packages
containing presents, these being pack
ages sent abroad thus early in order to
reach their destination in ample time.
As the time gets nearer he says that
the dead letter office will have a large
number of these packages which have
been missent. Mr. Jones, who appro
dates the sentiment contained in a
Christmas gift, hopes by a circular he
has issued to lessen the number of
packages that go estray each year.
The circular urges persons who mail
such packages to be careful and see
that the proper amount of postage has
been paid and that the article has been
properly addressed. He has just had
occasion to address a letter to a person
in South Africa, telling him that a cer
tain package is held for postage. The
package had been sealed or there would
be enough postage to pay its way. As
it is, the man in South Africa can, by
remitting a dollar and a half, receive
by mail a 50-cent necktie. There was
in the I’ostofllce not long ago a pack
age of photographs. They were un
sealed, and without writing the post
age wguld have been eleven cents, but
the age of a child was written on one,
and it was over two dollars. Another
instance recalled by Mr. Jones is the
case of a package in tin addressed to
a man in Ireland. The postage was
over three dollars. It was a can of
cranberries. Mr. Jones says he scarce
ly ho|>eB to educate the people, but he
hopes his circulars may save some
packages and presents from going es
tray, and for that reason he sent them
out to be posted in every office, asking
people to look more carefully into the
regulations relating to postage, and see
that their parcels are properly mailed.

still working, and will continue while

been pretty well worked over and their
product will be small. Respectfully,

the meantime a man wearing a very

bullion bars were found upon him. He

I happen to be able to recall pre
cisely the day, almost the hour, when
the blight fell on the potatoes and
caused the great calamity. A party of
us were driving to a 7 o’clock dinner.
As we passed a remarkably fine field
of potatoes in blossom, the scent come
through the open windows of the car
riage and we remarked to one another
how splendid was the crop.
Three or four hours later, as we re
turned home in the dark, a dreadful
odor came from the same field, and we
exclaimed, " something has happened
to those potatoes! They don’t smell as
they did when we passed them on our

were nearly eight millions of people
depending principally upon those po
tatoes for existence.

May 17, 1802, we dropped the rattan
and the primer, left the schoolroom,
and boldly (though blindly) jumped
over into the next field—the field of
journalism. The venture was regarded
by many as being intensely rash, and
not a few predicted that the News
would not survive a month; but,
thanks to a kind public, a liberal pat
ronage enabled it to exist, not only
the six months but seven times six
months, and barring the general de
pression that has affected every branch
of business, it has been prosperous.
With this issue we sever our connec
tion with this paper and retire to pri
vate life. There are many phases of
newspaper life that are very agreeable
and these we leave with regret. Other
features are not so pleasant and we
part from them without a sigh. To
the scores of friends who have extend
ed encouragement and aid we are
deeply and sincerely thankful, and
their kindness can never be effaced
from the tablets of our memory. We
hope that our successors may receive
a fair proportion of the public patron
age, and to them we delliver up the
editorial pen, the pastepot and the
scissors. Miss Annie Martin.
TralulDK m Locomotive.
It may not be generally known that
locomotives intended for express trains
require as much training, in their way,
for fast running as do race horses.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company
builds its own engines, and those built
for express trains arejenown as class
P. They are very large and built, with
slight variations, after the pattern of
the big English engine imported into
this country several years ago, and
which at that time was a curiosity in
its way. When one of these big en
gines is taken out of the shops to be
placed on the road, instead of putting
it to the work it is intended for at once
it is run for two or three weeks on some
one of the local branches in order to
train it, so to speak, for faster running.
By this means all the bearings and
journals connected with the running
gear become settled to their work, for
should anything about the new ma
chine not work harmoniously there is
ample time to adjust the defect. Usu
ally the new engine proves trouble
some on account of its propensity to
make fast time, and at almost every
station the train is found to be a little
ahead of schedule time and must wait
for from ten seconds to a minute.—

Last Saturday afternoon, during a
heavy wind, emoke was seen issuing
from the roof of the mechanical build
ing of the State University, says the
Reno Gazette, and in less than an hour
it was entirely consumed together with
its fine equipment of lathes, black
smiths tools, and about 60 sets of car
penters tools. Several students, who
had rooms in the upper part of the
building, lost about half their books
and clothing. The little mill and
smelter used for testing ores in con
nection with the mining department
was also burned. The loss on the me
chanical building will be about $10,
000, with an insurance on the building
and machinery of $4,000.
The Hiller A Lux Properly.
Henry Miller, the cattle king, was
presented with an agreement last week
providing for the distribution of the
vast property of the firm of Miller A

had been examined by his attorneys.
The agreement provides for the ap
pointment of a commissioner by each
side, the two commissioners to select
a third. They shall proceed to divide
the Miller A Lux property, giving half
to each side. In his testimony last
week Miller said the firm owned 150,

The first clock in the city communi

of the magnet and the little train of

authority for all clocks and an infal

is wound and regulated weekly by an
expert chronometer maker, who sets

of the number of men employed to

The Williamsburg (Mias.) Watch
man gives a glowing lesson in news
paper etiquette when it says: Some
people think that an editor should be
all nose and put his proboscis into
every man’s afTaiis. Because a man
edits a paper is no reason why he should
inquire into the family history of every
man in his community. It’s not our
province as a newspaper man to go to
a stranger when he comes to town and
ask him if he has ever been in the
asylum or if he is crazy. We might
get a licking if we did such things. It’s
not our business to take up every ru

it. It’s not our profession to feed the
public on sensational rot of a debased
and degraded nature.
