' CLERKS' INSURANCE. J
Snccesafal Operation of Department-
1 Aid jtHoilllin Im Covtrl
mtmt Office.
J "X few years ago," said tUe secretary
of o departmental aid association, re
ports the Washington Star, "one of the
abuses of departmental life was the al
most constant passing around of the
liat for collections to aid the widow and
family of a clerk who had died in serv
ice. , Very often the deceased had been
for many tears in the service of the
government and at his death it would
be found that be left scarcely enough
to bury him, and sometimes not that.
And this would be true of clerks in the
higher grades. It made a clerk appear
mean to refuse to contribute with the
others though he may have had but
a sx-akiiig acqunintnnce with the de
ceased. To those on the outside St
would not seem that Uiese contribu
tions would be made suilieiently often
to amount to a drain, but they were,
and I have known of three clerks dying
within a month in one large division. I
recall the chief clerk of n bureau dying
sudd-niy, and his widow did not liae
enough money to pny fur his laying
out. The word was passed around in
1 he bureau that 1 he chief expected the
clerks to contribute liberally, and: most
of them handed in. from J3 to $5, but
there was a strong undercurrent of
kicking.
"In all of tneCepartments the solicit
ing of money for any purpose is strict
ly forbidden now. All have their own
benevolent associations, which are en
couraged liy tne clntis. lliese asso
ciations have by-laws, constitutions
and ollietrs. Their object is to furnish
to the clerks whj are memlnrs an in
surance which will be immediately
available on death. In-fact, the money
is turned over to the heirs on the same
'ay that the association is notified of
the death of the member, anil, this
ready money is often ail that the
widow or the heirs have in tike world.
I he I criKicn Ilureau association
publishes a complete pamphlet ncport
annually; others render a report to the
board of directors only. The annual
receipts from the assessments of the
Pension Bureau association- are about
$0,0)0, and $2J0 is paid on death to the
beneficiary. Last year it lost about
25 members, and J'ifi.COO has lien dis
burstd since its formation in ISt'l, The
assessment is 5 cents, and the mem
bership isl.Oil'J. Clerks do not lose their
membership in these, associations if
they retire from their respective de
partments, voluntarily or involuntar
ily, as long a9 they pay their assess
ments. The assessments range from
25 cents to$l.
"In tile post office department the as
sessment is 50 cents, and. the amount
paid varies front $200 to $275, according
to the cumber of members.
"The treasury department has two
aid! associations, one of which pays
$.'i50 on the death of a member and the
assessment is $1.
'The interior oepnrtmcmn tssocia
tion numbers about BOO, ami it was or
ganized' in 1815. . About 100 members
have since died; each, receiving at death
$200, while over $20,000 has been dis
bursed. "The beneficial association of the
war department has recently been re
organized, Having been iu existence 14
years. It lias a membership of 430, the
assessment is $1, the amount paid at
death $25i, anxl about $5,000 has already
beea diaiiursed."

The corset lias been relegated to ob
scurity by many of the most fashion.
able young women of Philadelphia.
Mme. Goalies Sarrante, who believe
that women wearing thte unhygienic
thing should be punished by law, hat
rallied a host of followers from Fhila
delphia around her flag.
'Led by Dr. Grace Spiegel, of the nor
mal school, many of the young girb
of Philadelphia are banding togethet
against this article of feminine wear,
They consider it not mildly uubygien
ic, but actively harmful. Dr. Spiegcl'j
opinions on the question are:
"It is really wicked for women, and
especially growing girls, to force
themselves into such etrait jackets,
They liced free play of muscles to give
them the best physical and men.tal
health; they need loose clothing to
allow free play of muscle.' No need, as
some think, of a girl's looking untidy
because she does not wear corsets to
deform her natural figure. She can
be neat, carry herself properly and
feel hnppier without them."
"Yu Ting Fang, the Chinese minis
ter, puts the wearing of corsets on a
par with foot-binding," said a mem
ber of the Society of the Philadelphia
Woman's Medical College the other
day. She knows, because she has
been assisting in th rnitertainmcnt o'.
the distinguished foreigner during his
recent visit to that city. "In his ad
dress to our alumnae," continued the
medical woman, "he cited the Chinese
dress as one mark of the emancipation
of the women of his country and their
superiority over Americans."
Beveral years past at times on the
territory about ten miles northeast of
Upper Sandusky, O., on the Dunlap
farm especially, there has been an in
tense gold excitement and much pros
pecting has been done. Now comes
the story fh.it three New Yorkers have
been digjrirp at night under the direc
tion of Mr. Hall. Tradition savs cold
was buried on the farm years ago and
investigation now proves that this is
not unfounded. It is stated by one
who is on the Inside that upwards of
?3,0Cd has already been taken and the
prospectors hme much confidence in
being able to locate the IM.OiJ reported
buried.
It is related that many years ago,
when this was a wilderness infested
with the r.ed men, five men left New
York state with $C0,OCO, expecting to
invest that amount in land. One night,
when they were encamped near a spring
on wnat is now the Dunlap farm, three
were massacred by the savages, the
others being captured. The captives
immediately wrote to their relatives
describing as near as possible where
their iiioney was located. Many efforts
have been wade to find the spot, but
until now the efforts proved futile.
