Notice to Patrons,
Postmaster A. L. Baker, desires to
call attention to the pratice "of some
! patrons of rural delivery of placing
loose coines in their boxes each time
they desire to dispatch letters instead
of supplying themselves with postage
in advance of their needs.
This pratice imposes undue hardship
on the rural carries in removing loose
! coin from boxes and delays them on the
service of their routes.
The Postmaster, therefore, urgently
requests that patrons of rural delivery
provide themselves and keep on hand a
supply of stamps consistent with and in
advance of their needs. It is also very
desirable that rural patrons place in
their mail boxes small detachable cups
of wood or tin in which to place coins,
when necessary, in purchasing supplies

Dog Eater for it is not afraid of its
shadow. Now some people think there
is no such a thing as this a ferocious
dog-eater but there is. Here is a des
cription as given by bankers and bar
bers and harnessmakers in Murray. It
is about five feet bony, two feet high
and has a black bushy coat of bristley
hair. Has a tail three feet long smooth
and hairless except at the top end
where there is a bunch of hair resembl
ing a dusting brush. The head is long
and pointed, a month set with teeth
like knive and from beneath the shaggy
foretop a pair of black beady eyes
glint with thirsty blood lust. The legs
are short and very powerful and term
inate in a small hoof similar to that of
a horse, but only about three inches in
diameter. The dog-eater can be easily
track in the snow by the shape of the
hoof. In the impression of a horses
foot in the snow the imprint of the frog
is easily discerned, in the imprint of a
dog-eater you will find a toad instead.
A slight difference but easily dectected
by those accustomed to hunting this
animal. The curator of the Smithson
ian Institute claims that while this
animal is rare it is well to science as
caninis carnivera murrayfakorum.

A Severe Pain in the Membe
Caused Some Uneasiness
and Upon Examina
tion .'the Needle
Alva Long, residing near Murray,
better known as Dr. Loner, has of late
been haviner some trouble with one of
his arms, complaining of a soreness in
it, and at times suffering extreme pain
In order to see if he could not find
something which would give relief, he
went to Dr. Brendel of Murray and had
an examination made of the lame mem
ber. After examining the arm for
moment, the seat of the soreness was
found, and the physician felt something
that appeared like a foreign substance
in his arm. It felt like a bit of wire or
a pin, and on making an incision, he
was able o extricate the offending par
ticle which proved to be a needle with
thread m it, just as if some one
had been using it for sewing purposes
Mr. Long does not remember when he
has received a wound lately, and thinks
that the needle and thread has been in
his arm for some time, as it was cor
roded and blackened by long action of

released on condition that he leave the country. He came to America, where

a general amnesty was forced upon the czar. He took advantage of thU
