anniversary of the invention of that
modern necessity the postage stamp. The
first stamp was issued by Great Britain
on the 6th day cf May 1840 ami was
printed in black. There was about 3,000
designs submitted to the British govern

the first adhesive postage stamp. The

man, an.l contained a portrait of the
Queen and was of the one penny denom

appear until the latter part of the same
month and was nrintpd in blue. The
following inscription was printed on each

not to remove t';r. cement." The growth
of the use s i .ips has been wonderful
very civilized country on the face of the
globe and many that are considered soni
ibarbarous, have some form of a postage
stamp. The diverse designs many of
them very beautiful, as well as the love
for the antique has created an army of
collectors all over the world who have
albums specially created for the saving
and showiug in good form wonderful
designs from all nations. We have sev
eral collectors here in Plattsmouth among
the boys. Charles Rhode has the largest
collection represented by over 1,200
stamps, he has one of the original first
stamps issued in 1S40, h also has some
2 centavo s'amps valued at 5.00 apiece
4n account of their scarcity. The high
et priced stamps are some of the local
atamps issued by St. Louis, NdW York
and Brattleboro Vermont, they are quot
ed at from $300 to :)50 each. There
are several newspapers published in the
interest of the stamp collector which are
taken by the boys in this city. Tom
Mapes, Robert Ballon, Charley Rosier,
Myron Elson, Wendell Foster and Carl
Fricke all haye small collections which
they are adding to. A look at one of
their albums is full of interest not only
to a Philatelist but to any one interested

THE BELLS OF THE CITY.
The bells of the city sound aloud
Over the hearts of the hurrying crowd,
Sturklng surely the night of. time.
Kinging out a melodious chime.
Calling loudly through the busy hum,
Comtjl cornel come! come!
The minstrel group from Trinity call
To the belfry band In the city hall.
And the echoes fly at a lively pace
To meet with the charming cherubs of Grace.
And aU Join In the tuneful song.
Ding, dongl ding, dongt
Now a melody now a prayer
Woven in through the harpsf of air,
FludH its way to the prisoner's cell.
To the homes of tle rich and por who dwell
So far it souudd like a drivsy hum.
Come! come! come! come!
I know the bells are endowed with sjt;ech.
And have a message they bring to each.
And none can give the sinul clear
That is meant tor another jerson's ear.
Or guess wl.r.t menioriis throb and throng
Ding, doiig! (tin;, (long!
But bells of Trinity! bells of Grnci!
Hint; out liko tjfrris from a lolly place
A sti; Of Joy, and not of woe,
O'er the pretty scene in the church below.
And call aloud through the buzz and hum.
Come' come! comu! cornel
They come to the altar, bride and -room.
She with her cheeks like a rose in bloom.
While the organ tells with its tuneful swells
That the beaux of the city ring the bells;
And echoes awaken through Christendom;

The Absorption of New f'nglaiut Farms.
Some fifteen years ago, in the early
daj-s of the Mount Desert summer travel.
I met on the beach at Newport. R. I., a
shipwrecked sea captain from Bar Har

ment of the rapid eh.::ig:'3 coming over
the ownership of real estate in that re
gion. "It does jest beat all," he de
clared. "Folks will coma along from
Now York or Philadelphy Jind they'll
kinder take a fancy to a man's farm.
They'll end in givin' him more for it
th::n he ever thought o' aslrin' for it; and
th?n they'll pay him more for livin' on
it in winter to t:ika c:ira of it than he
ever made off of it.'-
This d;ip;vx good bargain, this gain in
both principal arid interest at the same
time, seemed quite too much for my
v.-eather beaten friend's comprehension.

for years, in a manner less co?ispic-..:ons.
along the whole New England coast, and
through all the mountain region of the
Appalachian range. Side by side with
that crowding into cities in winter,
a steady crowding out of cities for sum

Pale Sii rsap:irill:i Sirup.
There is a handsome new drug store
up in Fourteenth street where they sell
soda water aad disjx-l illusions all for
five cents a glass. If yon ask the soda
water clerk for sarsaparilla sodi water
he will give you a glass cf foamy water !
that is almost colorless of a pearly
transparent, like that of -a glass of
vanilla soda water. It looks no more
like the rich, brown colored drink that
people expect to get when the ask for
sarsnparilla soda water than chalk does.
If 3'ou remark on the nnacenstomed ap
pearance of the drink tie will say to you,
as he says to hnrdreds of people who
ask for that particular kind of soda wa
Uv every day, that pure sarsaparilla
siii'.p is colorless. "People think," he
says, "that sarsaparilla. being "made of
routs, iiitust be brown. Perhaps years
;;.;). when the sirup was made by throw
ing a lot of unwashed roots in a dirty
kettle and boiling them over a smoky
fire in th" wood.", there wp.s dirt enough
in the compound to make it brown.
Nowadays the process is cleaner and the
sirup is colorless. But people think
sarsapariila ought to be brown, and so
people color it with burnt sugar or lico
rice. We don't." Washington Post,

"The most expensive!" quoth the one
