The report of the postmaster general fo
the last liscal year , which Is now being pn
pared at tlm department , shows some mtei
estlng figures in iclatlon to the postal set
vice. One cntious feature shown by thl
report is the point at which tlm ordinnr
American draws the line of economy. Fioii
the time tlm postal cards were lust intioducei
into tins country until tlm rate of letter poj
tnge was ledneed to two cents per oune
there was a steady and constant Incieaso li
tlm sales of postal cards. This change ii
tlm law wont into effect on the 1st of Octo

months the departmenthaddis-Dosod of some
thing like ; 5soooo,0X ( ) posjal caids. Thus , I :
ton veais , tlm annual consumption ot postn
cauls had incieaseU from a lew millions ute
to n third of a billion. Tlm ordinary Increas
in the value of postage stamps sold is in tli
neighboihood ot 1't to l.r > percent perannum
and the sales of postal caids should , in th
ordinary natme of tilings , increase In abou
the same ratio , but since ISS : ! there has beei
no increase to spoalc of. Dining the las
year there has been a decided tailing oil
Tills is duo to tlm fact tha
people have , since the icductloi
of letter postage , pone back to sealed corres
pondonce. as the margin between ono am
two cents is not Milliclcnt to Induce them ti
use the postal card to so great an extent a ;
formerly. Oiliclals of tlm dcpaitmont be
licvo that the high water mark in tlm use o
postal cards has been readied , and that tha
once favorite method of communication I
destined to become less anil less pomilat eacl
year , and tluit the postal caid will finally le
main in use principally as an ndvertislni
medium thiough the malls. Notwitht > tandlni
tlm inroads into thu revenues of thu depart
nient , which has been made through congres
slonal action each yoir , the leeelpts lor thi
( meal year ending 18S5 will show a net In
crease over the leeelpts for tlm year 1684 o
about one million and a half dollars. The re
dnctlon of postage on newspapers from twi
cents to ono cent per pound caused a fallini
off in the revenues laht year of about 31,100 ,
000. This shows that npwauls of a millloi
pounds of newspapers were depO9ite <
in the mails by publishers nloni
besides tlm tons which were sent out li
wrappers by private individuals , to whicl
postage stamps were nfll.xcd. The depart
