The proposition now before the trade
is to charge fifteen cents for the .shave
and allow the neck shaving free
when done with some other work
bv the barber. The price for a shave
and a neck shave, has been fifteen cents
and this will be no hardship on those
who wish their necks shaved, as the
payment of the fifteen cents for the
shave will enable them to get their
necks shaed as well.
Those who have not made a prac
tice of having the neck shaved will
have their bills increased but only
a trifle.. Hut little was said in the
way of the uniform charge by any in
attendence and nearly all the busi
ness places were represented. All
agreed that it would better be made
an agreement and all stay with the
matter of one charge from the shave
and neck shave included. There will
be another conference in the near fu
ture as it is desired to have the uni
form rate apply with the beginning
of t he new year.

The following letter to the post
master from the fourth assistant
postmaster geiiernl is self-explanatory:
Washington, Dee 10. 1 !(!.
l'roni a recent count made by rural
carriers in one of the counties in the
Mate of New York of coins deposited
by parlous in their boxes for the pur
chase of stamp supplies, it was found
that each earlier in the county was
collecting an average of 11.") one-cent
pieces each week. This average ap
plied to all the ionics in operation
throughout the country would give
the enormous t( I :d of about WIO.OOO,
As mo.-l of lie-" coins are deposit
ed loose in boxes, it is desirable that
you and the rural carriers, in a tactful
and polite way, put forth your best
elTorts to induce patrons to provide
ilmiiwi.lt is tviili st.uim Minnlies in
advance of their need.-, and to ciiip ;
their boxes with suitable coin-holding
receptacles. It should be fully ex-;
plained to patrons that the picking jj
of loose coins fro'u boxes w only
results in needless hardship and suf
fering to carriers in winter weather,
delays the delivery and collection of
the mails, but I'lcowently results in
actual money h'.-s to the carrier, for
if, in collecting coins from boxes, they
drop them into the snow or on the
ground without recovery, they are
required to replace the amount out of
their own funds. le.-peet fully,

Made Merry at Friends Birthday.
Tuesday evening a number of young
folks, mostly members of the
tian ciurch, met at the barber shop
of Jesse Perry and proseeded to the
home of Floyd Stone, in the southwest j t
portion of the city, where they took : j
general charge of things and had a good ;
time, all on account of Floyd having ! A
been born just seventeen years agoi
last evening. The time was madei X
to speed away with rallies, songs,
laughter, and general social conversa
tion. A number of very appropriate
and beautiful presents were given ;s
tokens of the friendship and good feel
ings of those present for their young
friend. Supper was served at mid
night and all departed wishing Floyd
many more hapry returns of the or-, JmJM'JmJmJmJ

hopped into the store room of
Crahill, the jeweler, last eve-1
ning and was told by that affable
gentleman that it was nearly useless
to attempt an adequate display of
his goods in the window, which al
though ample enough, is ami has been
so covered with frost that it was iin-
possible to see what was on the inside
!of the glass. When one gets inside
J though, he linds that he has stepped
I into a fairy land of the most beautiful
and useful Christmas goods imagin
able. There are many who think
I that in order to get what one wants
it is necessary to go to some larger
town for liem, while in truth the
contrary is oftimes the case. We
have an instance in point at the pres-
ient time in the ease of a young lady

of the writer, a guest of our daughter.
The young lady wished to purchase
some ink cull buttons with the ini
tial "A" thereon for her brother
All the stores in Lincoln were can
vassed without finding the desim
article. The first question propound
ed to Mr. Crahill brought forth tlx
goods wanted and of the finw
quality as well. The price was not
out of line and the young lady was
extremely well pleased and repeatedly
complimented our city upon the we
selected "stocks of jewelry and kin
(bed lines carried by Mr. Crabil
Nor were the compliments confine
to tliis line, for a number of- other
Mores shared the same good words,
of one not a citizen of Pl.ittsnioiith.
Now it looks to us as though some
of the eiti.ens of Plattsinouth should
see and recognize this fact as in contra
; d'stinetion with outside towns.
