one is 11, one 12, four 13, live 14, one
16.' Boys, one 12, one 13, three 14,
three 15. Their record shows the ma

B. Bridgeman, of this city, on Mon
day of this week, tiled with Judge W.
C. Ellison, in the Gentry County Cir
cuit court, at Albany, their petition
asking for the appointment of a re
caiver of the estate of James B
Payne, of this city. The receivership
is asked for in view of Mr. Payne,
who is now 75 years old, being sued
for divorce and onethird of his estate
by his wife, who is only 45 years old.
Payne was married November 29,
1909. to Mrs. Mettle B. Traschel, of
St. Joseph, in St. Joseph. A pre-nup-tial
contract was entered into by the
two parties in which Payne was to
give his wife-to-be one-third of his
property, following their marriage.
The case has attracted widespread at
tention in Holt and Atchison coun
ties because of the prominence of the
aged husband, who, in additiion to
his farm, owns several business houses
The receivership was allowed and
John Speer was appointed receiver,

Notice For Rural Patrons.
Some time ago we published a sec
tion of the postal laws governing the
use of loose coin on rural routes in
payment for postal supplies. This re
quires that all mailable matter imist
be stamped and that there shall be
no loose coin placed in boxes. Dur
ing the summer months, the carriers
have been exceedingly lenient with
their patrons and have gathered up
the pennies, but now as winter has
come, the carriers, one and all. have
decided that on and after Dec. 1st,
they will abide strictly by the rules
and regulations of the department re
garding loose coins. We hope the pa
trons will provide themselves with
stamps and other supplies that there
may be no delay. Your carrier wili
try to alwaj's have on hand plenty of
supplies to meet your demands. We
would advise using the stamped route
envelopes as much as possible.
