Scbeinc for robbing tho government
are plentiful, but one of the most unique
perbapa that haa been put into opera
tion for eome time haa juat come to
litfht down in Texas.
Uncle Sam did not pay one of his
fourth claw postmasters in. n little -Tillage
ia the Lone Star State sufficient
money to pay his ulla and have a sur
plus with which to go out with the boys
at night. A friend of the genial post
master was in the same financial pre
dicament, so they decided to make tho
government furnish enough coin with
which life could be made worth living.
Tbey couldn't tip the tills of the office,
because the receipts were too low, nei
ther could the- steal stamps, because
tbey were allowed toofew. It was final
ly decided that tho money order system
waa the best thing to tackle in order to
get funds, and accordingly tho postmas
ter issued 31 order for $100 each to his
friend, payable at a neighboring office.
The ftiend bad them cashed, and for a
few weeks both lived high.
Xow the question arose how to cover
their tracks. The wits of the two crim
inals were put to work, and it was act
tied that tbey should I ny the star roato
in that section, subsidize the mail mes
senger nnd have a "hold np," after
which tho iiostmaster would bo ablo to
ay that tho money in imyinent of the
orders was taken from the mailbag.
Tho programme was carried out. The
tnowr.pt was held cp and ciuno to
town telling of hi lorn, and the poxt
tn outer sw(.ra thut ho had placed the
money for tho iiaynicnt cf the orders in
tho mailbag.
Tho poKtoffice ilcpartmrTit became gus
picions nnd sent a special agent down
there, which rutulted in tho capture of
the postmaster and his accomplice. The
messenger was also locked np. Wash
