Characterizing Senator Burton's 53 ouestions on the currency bill as a "grammar school performance," Demo cratic Leader Kern yesterday made an ineffectual plea for unanimous consent to vote on the measure iriaay aiter noon. Kern stated that thousands of men in Indiana had been thrown out of work by the refusal of banks to loan their employers money for the payrolls until the doubt about the currency bill should be settled. Burton replied hotly, defying the Dem ocrats to say that his questions had not shown admitted defects in the bill which had to be corrected, and asked if the senators were to "be reduced in ira- WOMEN SUBJECT TO ' KIDNEY TROUBLES I beg to say that I have been a con stant sufferer with severe pains in my back and was on the verge of nervous prostration resulting from kidney trou ble and other complications.

Notable recommendations to Congress for the enactment of additional legisla tion to facilitate and extend the opera tions of the postal service are made. LANDERS' CIGAR STORE 92 NO. MAIN STREET Among the more important, are the fol lowing! "That the postoffice department be given exclusive jurisdiction over the se lection of the sites for public buildings to be used wholly for postoffice purposes, and joint authority with the secretary of the treasury in the selection of sites for federal buildings to be used jointly by the postal and other branches of the government service. "To amend existing law in order to allow $2,000 indemnity for accidental death of any officer or employe of the postal servico or for death within one year as the result of injuries sustained in the service in the line of duty. Pro vision is also made for leave with full pay for a period of one year for in juries sustained in the line of duty and then at half pay for not exceeding one year additional. This is an important recommendation for the reason that the existing law applies only to railway postal clerks, sea post clerks and post office inspectors. "The elimination of surety bonds now required of postal officers and em ployes and the substitution of a guar anty fund established and maintained by assessments prescribed by the postmas ter general. "To authorize the postmaster general to contract for experimental aerial mall service, for which an estimate of $30,000 has been submitted. "To permit the postmaster general to transfer clerics from postollices ot the first and second clauses to the railway mail service at salaries higher than the entrance salary in the railway malt service, ihe purpose ot this legislation is to bring about an interchangeable per sonnel between tfce railway mail service and the postoffice service, with a view to a more effective utilization of the en tire force of postal employes and to af ford better opportunities for the ad vancement of worthy and efficient clerks in postoflices. "To extend the provisions of existing law so as to provide substitutes for rail way postal clerks who are absent with pov on account of sickness, the expense of employing such substitute to be borne by the government instead of by the clerk. To authorize the issuance of postal money orders payable at any money or- er office. "To authorize the removal of the lim itation on the amount of postal savings deposits with the proviso that interest shall not be paid on more than $1,000. This will permit postal savings deposi tors to deposit any amount." . Parcel Post Growth Phenomenal. The report indicates that the growth of the parcel post business 1ms been phe nomenal. "The experience gained in the iteration of the system under the re ised rates and weights has shown that further reduction of rates and increase of weight limit is justified," says the postmaster general. "Jt is believed that the parcel post should be made eventually to serve the people as fully and completely as pos sible without interfering with the effi cient conduct of the postal service, and that changes in the regulations that will have the effect of increasing the volume of parcel pot mail should 1 made grad ually and only after experience and in vestigation have shown that they may be put into effect without loss or detri ment to the service." In connection with what is referred to as the "prodigious growth" of the parcel post service, particularly, Mr. Burleson discusses additional compensa tion to the railroads for carrying the mails. He savs that data is being se cured by the department which will en able him to lay before Congress at a later date his conclusions "as to what will be just and adequate compensation for all services which the railroads have rendered or will be called upon to ren der the government." It is pointed out that the mailings at the one cent a pound rate and free in the county of publication, "for the first time in the history of the postal service exceeded a billion pounds during the last fiscal year. In connection with the transportation of magazines and other bulky second class matter by fast freight, instead of by the regular mail routes, the post master general expresses earnestly the hope "that Congress will remove the prohibition against the extension of this system of handling second class matter and enable the department to apply it where found practicable." Free Delivery in Villages. It is the announced purpose of Mr. Burleson not to encourage the extension of free delivery of mails in villages, be cause of the inferiority of the service and the impossibility to secure economi cal administration of it. It is his in tention, therefore, wherever practicable to utilize the services of rural carriers for the delivery of mails in small towns. On that phasu of the service, the re port says: "As rural routes emanate from prac tically all of the places where this vil- m When Buying Gifts for Men be a Spug The president of the United States is a Spug; cabinet mem bers, senators, congressmen, judges, everybody from workman to captain of industry is a "Spug" or wants to be.

The compensation of rural carriers, how ever, at this time is based on the length of their routes and to make them avail able for the service indicated their sal aries should be based upon an eight hour day. With this change these car riers could be' used not only to supple ment the general delivery service as in dicated, but in many instances in the delivery of parcel post matter as well, thus obviating the necessity for addi tional, horse hire for the delivery of the larger packages. The compensation of rural carriers should therefore be changed from a mileage to an eight hour basis, and these carriers should be permitted to deliver mail regardless of the distance from the postoffice or the corporate limits of the city or town." In conclusion, Postmaster General Bur leson points out that the postoffice. de partment is essentially a business insti tution, which touches every home in the. land. A high standard of efficiency is demanded of all postal employes and he says that he will require from every postmaster his individual attention to the affairs of his office and that thia re quirement will be rigidly enforced. "For this reason," he says, "the merit system should be adhered, to in the post office department above all others in or der to secure the very highest standard of efficiency in th conduct of its af fairs." f THE LARGEST CIGAR STORE IN VERMONT MARIRDON'S When you need a PHI TAKE A Brandretfts Pill Entirely Vegetable.
