THE postoffice department is arrang
ing for the first time in twenty years to
take a complete accounting of the actual
total weights of the mail matter carried
by it. In less than twenty years there
has been an increase of 116 per cent in
the total miles of route , aud of 191 per
cent in the gross of annual mileage ,
hence the importance of this movement
to secure absolutely reliable data upon
which to base contracts and payments
for the greatly increased transportation
charges of the postal department.
THE new form for postal money
orders , which went into effect on Sep
tember 4th , has a number of advantages
which will tend to increase the popular
ity of the money order system with the
people. The new order is smaller in
size about the size of the average draft.
The order and advice are made identical
by the carbon sheet process , so that no
discrepancies can result , with the at
tendant delay sometimes experienced.
In addition each remitter is given a re
ceipt for the amount and date and num
ber of the original order.which will be ad
vantageous in case of loss or miscarriage
or delay of order. The figures on the
margin are done away with. It is ex
pected that on or about January ist
next , there will be a material reduction
in the schedule of fees.
THE energetic manner in which the
Comfort commences to "plug" for the
Democratic nominee for sheriff shows
that the colonel still has an eye to the
main chance the sheriff sale notices ;
which is not bad business sense. But
how about the Populist nominees , none
of whom , so far , have received a word
of commendation in the Comfort ? To
be sure they haven't any sheriff's sales to
dispense , but they are Populists , and it
ought not to be an unpardonable sin for
even an alleged Populist organ to say a
word or two in a year or two about the
party nominees. Of course the third-
term boys have fractured the "unwritten
' law" of the party knocked "principle"
sky-high and all that ; but we imagine
that Dick Green , Jake Berge and Boaty
( not to say the county superintendent
though Jasper is the official printer of
the educational department ) would re
cover in due time were any of them to
- receive even a meagre portion of that
nominee's " "

" " Baker will walk
"Radiator" Snorting se
renely down street , now and then dodging a
flying brick or a bullet and occasionally
stumbling over the body of a plain drunk ,
and stop on every corner to maintain that the
town is perfectly quiet and that he never saw
an intoxicated man in his life. "None so
blind as he who will not see. "
It is to be expected that the chairman of
he village board would find time to engage
his best efforts in heavy literature , these da ) s
of heat ; his busy season has not yet arrived. A
few moons hence he will be cleaning radiators
every forty-eight hours in his endeavor to dem
onstrate that they will "go all winter without
cleaning ; and his efforts will be just about as
fruitful as his recent attempt at "vindicating"
"Radiator" Baker rushed into print , last
weekin a strenuous and sterile effort to prove
that he , as chairman of the village board ,
broke all his lacings not long since in his mad
endeavor to bring to account the convivial
gang of hoboes which has been raising merry
hades here for the past few months. That he
acquitted himself , to his own satisfaction , of
inertia in the matter is undisputed , but that he
is the only person cognizant of the facts who
believes his statements also goes without say
ing , lie says the county attorney had the as
surance of the support of the board in what
ever move he might make , but that means ab
solutely nothing , for , if we are to believe the
county attorney , he is not running over the
country digging up lawsuits on his own ac-
CDunt. Not a member of the board would
assist him to the extent of filing a complaint ;
they didn't know anything about it. Com
parisons are ever odious , but there is a mite
of satisfaction for the peace-loving citizen in
recalling what offenders of this same stripe
got handed to them by the village board of a
few years ago. Of course there are good men
on the present board men who greatly de
plore the existing conditions but the honest
efforts of a corral full of such men can be coun
terbalanced by the work of one who is etern
ally kicking and bucking against everything
in the radiator peddler's senseless fashion.
No one acquainted with the facts will take ex
ception to the statement that the past eight
months have witnessed more drunken brawls ,
fights and disgraceful scenes in this village
than any previous five years of its existence.
And no one person has encouraged the law
less element more than the present chairman
of the board of trustees by his opposition to
every plan to restrain the violators , and who
has never offered a better reason for it than
that their prosecution might add a half-penny
to his annual tax.

The meeting of the South Side Endeavor

A Night of Terror.
"Awful anxiety was felt for the widow of
the brave General Burnham of Machias , Me. ,
when the doctors said she could not live till
morning , " writes Mrs. S. II. Lincoln , who at
tended her that fearful night. "AH thought
she must soon dje from pneumonia , but she
begged for Dr. King's New Discovery , saying
it had more than once saved her life , and had
cured her of consumption. After three small
doses she slept easily all night , and its further
use completely cured her. " This marvellous
