Ready for Postal Bank.
In the money older department of
the local postolllce. there aie many
rubber stamps , foims and ceitlflcates
of deposit calling for amounts of from
} \ to $50. Postmaster John II. Havs
It familial I/Ing himself with all these
lot ms , blank books and other supplies
which will be put In use lieie on July
1 , when the postal savings doposltoij
opens for business. Out in the lobby
of the postolllco the postmaster lias
put In a conspicuous place n laige
sign , telling the public that the Nor
folk postolllco Is now a postal savings
depository and giving full Infoiiuatlon
to deposltoM.
While the ceitlflcates of deposit are
foi no less amount than $1 , Postmas
ter Hays has stoied lu ( ho safety vault
miuiv cauls which cost ton cents each
The depositor wishing to deposit less
than $1 can do so by put chasing one of
these taids which Is woith ten cents.
Nine blank spaces on the can ! are pro
vided for On these blank spaces a
ten ient stamp can he pasted When
nine stamps are attached the card Is
worth $1 ami a deposit ceitilicate. Mr.
Hajs expeits much pationage from
hildien who he believes will want to
save thoii change by purchasing these
deposit caids No child under the age
of 10 can he a depositor In Uncle
Sam'b Norfolk bank.
A feature of the postal savings bank
is the becrecy maintained of deposit
ors' names. When the office opens up
on Saturday morning and the first cus
tomer makes his appearance , he will
have to give Ills Identity , but that
identity is to ho guarded by Uncle
Sam's agents. If the depositor wishes
to deposit $1 or more , a certificate is
given him and a duplicate coitillcate
is held by the local depository. The
depositor gets an envelope on which
is written his name and address. The
envelope has full information printed
on one side and on the other the rec-
oid of deposits almost similar to n
bank deposit book.
A duplicate envelope is held by the
postmaster In which Is deposited the
duplicate of the certificate On this
duplicate envelope is written the occu
pation , address , residence , birthplace ,
age date of bhth , race and color , fa
ther's and mother's name of the do
positor.
Any deposits made by a married
woman or a minor are subject to the
! depositor's own control , and no de
posits are subject to any legal pro
ceedings.
"The only way to find out the name
of a depositor in the postal savings
bank , " says Mr. Hays , "will be to find
it out from the depositor himself. "
Any depositor may , under certain
conditions , convert the whole or any
'part ' of his deposits In sums of $20
I $00. $80 , $100 , or up to and including
j $300 , into United States coupons or
'registered ' bonds , beating interest at
j the rate of 2V2 percent. Such bonds
are to be exempt from all taxes.

Sparks from a passing engine at 2
o'clock this afternoon set to burning
two empty box cars in the Union Pa
cific and M. & O. railroad yards. The
fire was discovered bv employes in the
yards and Henry Drebott , who was in
the olllce at the time , turned in the
alaim for the fire department and then
led a bucket brigade and the flames
were put out within a short time. Mr.
Drebert's quick action probably saved
the destruction of many hay cars
which were standing near the burning
cars. The heavy wind fanned the
blaze which was gaining rapidly. Mr.
Drebert saw that the blaze could be
put out with a few buckets of water ,
but that if the fire was allowed to
progress , by waiting for the firemen ,
much damage would result. Running
along the top of the cars with Walter
Landers , son of Station Agent Lan
ders , Mr. Drebert succeeded in throw
ing a few buckets of water , which
checked temporarily the progress of
the fire In one car. Firemen soon ap
peared and short work was made of
the blaze. A few telephone poles ly
ing a short distance north of the rail
road yards also caught flre from the
flying sparks.

made their escape. The explosion was
heard by citizens , but they did not
realbe what was going on , so made-
no effort to capture the cracksmen.
Gypsy Woman Warns Auto Driver.
Albert Kinney was returning from
Stanton Monday night in his automo-
bile. The car was going at a fair rate
of speed when suddenly his attention
was turned to a gypsy woman stand
ing In front of a bridge waving her
arms frantically. Mr. Kinney stopped
his car and in broken English the wo
man told him that the bridge was unsafe -
safe and that he might come to harm
If he should attempt to cross it. The
night was dark and , taking the wo-
man's warning , he turned back and
took another road to the city.
County Commissioner Taft reports
that the bildge was condemned some
time ago , but that as far as ho knows
it has been traveled over considerably
recently Other teports have reached
here that had Mr. Kinney crossed the
bridge he might have had trouble , be
cause the side rails were torn down
and part of the flooring was damaged ,
Tlio condemned bridge is southeast
