Under New Contrccta the (.overs,
ment Can Sell Them for
91.SO Per 1,000.
Within a shkirt time it is expected
that the postmaster general will issue
an order reducing the cost of stamped
envelopes and newspaper wrappers.
This is made possible by the extremely
low bids received for doing the work.
The government does not seek to make
money out of the people in the sale of
envelopes, but endeavors to put their
price near the cost, reports the Wash
ington Star.
It is interesting to note the immense
sums paid by the government for en
vfToppo in the psst. Thu? in 1ST4 the
price of the envelope most us-ed by ttir
public was $2.90 per 1.K!0 to the gavern
nu'iit, and the people had 10 pay $3.20
pi r 1. .-.;.
Four year .''fro (and the d part meri
ts row operating under this cot-tract)
lie depertment awarded a ccntract
upon a l.'i l cf $1.SA per 1 C-to for tho
same envelope, and figured on selling
tbem to the people at $1.80 per 1,000.
The government will be enabled to
furnish envelopes under the new con
tracts at a much lowf r price. It is un
derstood that the reduction will be in
the neighborhood cf 50 cents per l.OOfi
Under the new bid a man can go to
any postofiice and purchase envelope?
at $21.30 per 1.000 already stamped with
two-cent stamps. This is approximate
ly but 13 cents per K0 for the envel
opes, or, to get it down oinh finer, only
four cents for a package of 25 envelopes
of the best government grade.
An English Authority Declares That

Mark some of the attributes of the
cycling heroine as she will be, and com
pare with the languishing sisters of a
past decade, says St. Paul's.
We find already a muscular, healthy,
practical creature, whGse dread is not
of cows or mice, but of the puncture
fiend. Her figure is naturally well de
veloped, in consideration of which home
truth let us pray for the ultimate re
moval of the "lissom form" and "wil
lowy waist" from the storied page. It
will follow, as a matter of course, that
"toying with the wing of ortolan" will
go hopelessly out of fashion, forit isan
a-feptcd fnct that the appetite ff the
bicycle heroine is "rudely Va'.thy."
Moreover, we mention it with bated
breath, we are told that the feet of the
bic.yrlinjj girl are gradually lncriting
in size, not in nnuiher alfhoffh.oon

This last fact, however, we should
advise the novelist to ignore. No ladj
lilies to have the size of her feet over
estimated, and the nearer her size ap
proaches to sevens the mor rooted is
her objection to having even the bare
truth hinted at. Once let the idea take
root that cycling has this effect, and
from that hour the number of fair cy
clists will dwindle.
Dally Floating; Popnlntion.
It seems an easy matter to compute
"the floating population" of the land,
but to estimate the real population
afloat is quite another task. A recent
computation as to the population afloat
on the Atlantii, however, calculates
that Inst year there was a daily average
of 3,651 vessels at sea, with 44,899 men
in their crews. Every day also 1.504
steamers, with crews numbering 53,
203 men and 32.656 passengers, were
afloat on the Atlantic. This made a
daily average for the year of 5,155 ves
sels and 130,272 persons spread over the
whole Atlantic surface.

The Little Feathered Visitor Hade a
Pat Of by Ita DellKbtad
Mr. William Wicke, a grocer ot the
corner of Lake stret t and lliu lem ave
nue. Oak Park, is "the proud possessor
of a tamed hummingbird, which flew
into his place of busings a few weeks
ago, tays a Chicago paper.
Mr. Wicke and his family were much
delighted to see such a bright assort
ment of colors come flitting in the w in
dow, and decided to make the bird their
prisoner. Mr. W:icke at once started to
train the new member of the family by
placing honey in some tiowers which
were in the show window. It took the
bird but a short time to know what
sweets tlie (lowers contained, and it
soon flew down from its abode cn one
of the shelves and devot:; td the honey
ss if realizing that it had found a heme
which completely answered all the re
quirements of hummingbird life. As
its education progrtstnl. the bird
learned to eat honey from the end of
Mr. Wicke's linger, whenever the
grocer dipped his digit in that tac
charine substance.
The unusual fact of atame humming
bird drew many people to Mr. Wicke's
store, and proved, finally, tbu! under
neath the brilliant plumage cf tlic- ,rn-tle-loohing
little creature '.here t.-.ii.t;:
a strain cf jealousy and f.;.;l:tir. b'oocl.
It was not brought Out until a v.-on..in
vieited the store wearing ;t hut in the
trimming of which nestiet? en artistic
ally "upholstered" hummingbird. Th?
"real thing" no sooner saw the imita
tion, than the hat became a ring, :c
which was fought a pitched battle, as
intense as the humming bird could
make it.
When the fight was over,, the store
was full of feathers and the woman full
of wrath. Her anger w as only placated

A Little Chicago Girl Who Wore a
B1 Dress and a Green I!at
When Her Sister l)i,.l.
One of Chicago's best-known music
teachers has a pupil who- lives eut en
Center street. The girl, jswys the Inter
Ocean, has a roervelous voice, and her
father interests himself a preat deol
in her future. The father of the girl
keeps a saloon, and the family lives in
the rear of the building. Marina has
plenty of money to spend, and the way
she lays it out in clothes is a Eource
of positive -distress to the music teach
er. Not long ago a sister, ditd, and
Marina went intomourning. Shecame
down to take a lesson in a long crepe
veil, a red dress, and a green bat. The
music teacher threw up her hands in
horror. She decided; to go out on a
friendly visit and make a few sugges
tions, especially as she wan ted Marina
to appear well at a fashionable re
hearsal. She was received wilh smiles
by the whole family, who felt greatly
honored. Marina was sent into the
saloon for a bottle of wine, and the
visitor w royally entertained. When
she rose to go the mother said, pre
senting a basket:
"I haf here a leetle presen'Igif you."
There were two live chickens in the
basket, with their legs tied tmgerther
To refuse the sanall testimonial was to
run the risk of losing a favorite protege.

a cab, pnt the poultry under the seat,
and drove off.
"I ordered, the driver to take back

An oyster feast is held every year at
Colchester, England, but this year's
feast was the greatest on record. A
special train, carried down the gues

A Maine Cat That Can Tell Wits a,
Latter Come (or Her sac
Opens It Readily. '
An East side woman has s cat that
can tell when a letter comes addressed'
for her, says the Augusta (Me.) Jour
nal. The owner of the cat spoke of - its
ability in this direction to a friend who
was making a call.
"A letter!" exclaimed the caller, in
surprise. "Ves, a letter, and If you don't be-
licve it I will prove it to you. Just
wait a minute until I direct one."
The woman left the room, and in a
few minutes returned with a sealed
envelope addressed to Miss Pussy, No.-
Bangor street, city.
"Now," said she, '"if you will kindly
pest that for me to-night and bo here
when the postman comes around on hi?
first delivery to-morrow morning you
will sec that I am telling you fact."
The caller mailed the letter as she
home promptly the next morning.
Socn the bell rang, and shortly after-"
ward the servant enttred with a bundle
of letters, amonir which was that for
Mi.ss PuEsy.
Sn re enough, pussy at once showed

addressed to her.
The visitor was about to express her
surprise, when the woman of the house
said: "Wait a moment. She'll open it
and eat up all that is in the envelope."
Scarcely had she said this when Mies
Pussy had torn the envelope open and
was enjoying her letter very much.
The envelope was filled with catnip.'
The Rapidly Multiplying Saloons ir
Crowding Them from Their
Favorite Place.
The corner drug store, with its flash
ing colored lights, is destined to event
ually disappear. The drug store of the
not. far distant future will be i:i the
center of blocks, especially in the
downtown and business district.
Whether this will be due to the march
of progress is another story. The sa
loons will occupy the corners as a rule.
In Broadway, New York, there are not
half a dozen drug stores on prominent
corners front the Battery to Central
park. The saloons and other businesses
outbid the druggists in the matter of
rents. Tho drug business has been
badly- invaded by dealers in other lines,
who have added to their general stocks
patent medicines, fancy goods, toilet
articles, and the thousand and-' one
things no one thought of seeking out

Grass Widows Looking for Worl.
In a recent report made by Lab
Commissioner Eosellc, of the state
Missouri, on the workings of the st:

shown that 70 per cent, of the wome
who apply for work are what is knowt

tays that most of these female appli

from Chicago, New York and Cincin
