RARE STAMPS ON LETTERS
Finds of Vnluo Sometimes Mtvdo
Stamps to Look Out For Ad-

"Never burn up or throw away
old letters or papers without llrst
giving them u careful examinu
tiou , " snid u Twenty-third street
stamp dealer to n New York Sun
i-epoilev , "for tlieie's many an
apparently worthless piece of pn
per that bears a stamp whieh
would bring in open market hun
dreds and maybe thousands of
"There are plenty of the old
postmaster stamps still in exist
ence , for instance , as there weie a
great many of them originally is
sued , and it has not been so long
ago , say Ho years , when they wen-
in active use. Xow , anyone of
these early issues is worth from
§ 300 up. Anyone who has access-
to old correspondence from 1810
to 1805 ought to hunt for such
"The chief re.ison wh\ more
of these old stamps have nut com
to light is probably that they have
so ordinary ami unattractive an
appearance that a person not ae
ijnainted with their value would
not waste a second glance upon
them. They were very similar in
most cases to the postmaster cancellation
collation marks now in use in tin
post oflleo.s. with the exception
that the postmaster was lotjniied
to sign his name to them.
"The rarest of the whole lot ol
postmaster issues is the ten-cent
Baltimore stamp , with the name
nf James M. Buchanan. One spe
cimenofiliinritaiiiphold for.ltj)0. ( )
which is the record price for a
stamp of the United States issue.
There's no reason in the world
why there shouldn't be more of
these stamps , packed away some
where. In the case of this stamp
none of them was used on enve.1-
OJKJS , but all on letters.
"The design of the Baltimore
stamp is a box made of hairline
rule , one and a half inches long
and half an inch wide. In the cen
tcr is the signature , 'James M.Bu
chanan , ' while under the name is
the denomination , either five 01
ten cents. There arc two kinds of
these stamps , in black or blue
The ten-cent black is the scarcer
"Nest to this scries probably
comes the New Haven stamp , at
the bottom of which is the signa
ture of 'E. A. Mitchell , P. M. ' In
the center is the figure 5 with
the word 'Paid' directly uudei

Test Office , New Haven , Ct. ' The
words are all inclosed in a blacli

PARSON BIRD IN ZEALAND
The Tui of That Country Can Talk
Crow and Whistle Some of
Among the feathered inhabit
ants of New Zealand there is a.
bird called the parson bird , o :
"tui. " It is
about the size and
shape of a blackbird , but has a
pair of delicate white tufts at its
throat , and is a glossy dark green
otherwise , which looks black in
the sunshine. It can be taught to
crow , to speak , to whistle tunes ,
and besides these tricks it has a
repertoire which is not often
equaled by any other feathered
songster. At vespers it has a nulc
like the tone of a bell or the clear
high note of an-organ. It can
mimic every bird in the bush to
perfection ; it will break off in th ?
middle of an exquisite melody
and indulge in a strange medley of
sounds which are impossible to de
scribe , but if you can imagine "the
combination of a cough , a laugh , a
sneeze , with the smashing of a
pane of glass , " it will be some approach
preach to the idea.
The tui nests twice or thrice i
year , and has large families. Like
the other birds of New Zealand
it teems to be unconscious of dan
ger from man. It is a pity that the
birds of this island are becoming
so scarce , for they speak to us ol
n time when nature was harmless
when the snake , tigers and fal
cons did not exist.
Counsel's Eecord Fee.
What is probably a record fe (
has just been earned by a distin
gnishcd counsel in an importan
colonial arbitration case. The fci
paid to the learned counsel wai
25,000 guineas. This puts into tin
shade the 10,000 guineas Mr
Fletcher Monlton received for con
ducting the case of one of the com
panics in the Metropolitan Wate

FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA
For two weeks we offer throughout our stocks extraordinary values. It
has been our custom to celebrate our entrance into the trade of Rich
ardson county by making a Spring sale during which substantial bar

Richardson county to compare our values with those found anywhere ,
whether in local stores or catalogue houses. Your cordial support dur

in our efforts to improve and more completely merit a continuance of
your kindness and interest. If you do not receive a circular , giving de

not giving premiums , not attempting to befog the minds of the public
