Marked success has attained the movement started by the clerks and carriers of th Calumet postofflce to bring about the closing of that office on Sunday. Almost 2500 signatures have already been secured, including practically all of the businessmen of Calumet and it is believed that a large number of other cards will be sent in. So hopeful are the clerks and carriers of securing additional support that they have ordered a largo number of extra cards so that everyone will have chance to sign. The showing made In Calumet so far compares very favorably with that made In other cities of the upper pen insula where movements of this kind have been Inaugurated. 1000 more signatures have already been "secured than were sent In from Escanaba, the largest city in the upper peninsula, when the petition was forwarded to Washington, and it Is said the Escan aba postofflce supplies almost as many people us the Calumet post office. The clerks and carriers of Calumet have met the little opposition that ex isted at the start In a very reasonable way and most of It has been with drawn. The Sunday closing will apply only to the distribution of mall from the windows and will in no way affect the outgoing mall if it is granted. One clerk and one carrier will work each Sunday, the carrier collecting the out going mall from the different boxes and the clerk dispatching it and dis tributing the Incoming mail so that there need be no congestion or delay on Monday morning. As It would take considerably longer to accomplish this work than when all of the clerks are working, there would be no hope of subscribers receiving their mall on Sunday. Special delivery letters, how ever, would be given the same prompt attention as on week days. The clerks and carriers feel that they are entitled to one day of rest per week and believe that they will re ceive enough support from the general public to warrant the postal depart ment granting it.

"How Ash Wednesday and the Lent season are reckoned seems to be a mjstery to many people," bald a Ro man Catholic clergyman today. "Lent !d always reckoned from Easter Sun day, but to many people this Is equally mysterious. "Easter Sunday always is the first Sunday uTter the llrst full moon ufter the spring equinox, March 21. If the full moon is on Sunday, Easter Is the Sunday following, Easter comes April 16 this year. "Lent Is generally forty days before Easter. There are usually six Sun days intervening but they are not counted in the forty days. This makes Lent always begin on Ash Wed nesday. It Is always preceded by Shrove Tuesday which is the last day before Lent." Another clergyman discussed the ob servance of Lent as follows: "Lent Is the Christian season of observing the forty days' fast of our Savior In the desert and consequently the church expects its members to follow the 1 : ample of Christ, In a small way at least. All dances and other forms of amusement are foresworn. On Wed nesdays and Fridays the members of tho church eat no llesh of anlr.als and on all other days In Lent fleh Is eaten only once a day. Eggs and fish can bo used at any time and to any ex tent except that fish cannot be used at the same meal as meat. From these observations of Lent some aged or ln firm persons are exempt." The Episcopal church observes Lent, also, but It does not dictate any meth od of observance other than various rclicious services which are held at Intervals in the forty days of Lent. The observance of Lent Is left by the church to the mood and temperment of the communicant. The rules say: "Tho church orders such a measure of abstinence 11s is more especially adapted to extraordinary acts and ex ercises of devotion." This means that there should be no formal imrtles or social functions but that the church does not place a ban on the so-called Innocent amusements. The observance of Lent Is left to the dictates of the communicant's conscience One Week i3ore VP ;av4S--'--, of Suit Selling at 7 DISCOUNT I I l J t r, X Stein-Blocii and f I F I V jj duwtJiy Dianuuiomes None Better THE DISCOUNT ON OVERCOATS TO CONTINUE ii I I clou ic raftI 2iii1S.J ALL-WOOL ClCTHlS HOUGHTON SUPERVISORS MEET TUESDAY.
