PINE POSTOFFICE
Absent Official, Unualhorized Dep
uty, Visiting Inspector.
There is all kinds of trouble at
l'ine, so it is reported, the Btorrn
center hovering around the post
office and Postmaster Farber
viding the casus belli.
It is said that a Postoflice In
pro
speetor recently visited the place,
finding Uncle Sam's representative
absent on
trip to Philadelphia,
leaving Mart Nelson in charge.
The latter, it is asserted, had not
been sworn in, and the records of
the office were in more or less of
tangle. It is also said, according
to Deputy Sheriff Winter, that the
cash account could not be made
to balance by about $ 200 .
