WASHINGTON. No.' 27. The annual re
port of the postmaster general, Issued to
day, . rehearses the various suggestions
made by hia departmental heads. Sad aays:
Free Delivery Enhances Farm Valnes.
'." It waa claimed that rural delivery would
Inorease the value of farm lands. Official
reports Indicate that In communities served
by rural free delivery. Isolated farms have
been enhanced In value because of that
service at an average of at least S per
cent In the older settled states, and in the
more- remote states and territories, where
postal facilities have heretofore been few
and far between, the Increase has been
It waa asserted that to bring the farmers
Into close touch with the markets would
enable them to obtain better prices for
their products. Specific Instances have been
brought to the attention of 'the department
where . the prompt delivery of live stock
'quotations, Indicating a temporary gult In
the market, to farmers Intending to ahlp
to the stock yards, by enabling them to
hold back their shipments till the markets
resumed their normal conditions, haa aaved
to Individual cattle raisers more than the
'total cost of one year's rural delivery over
the routes on .Which they lived. On the
other hand, fa many Instancea, Informa
tion of an advance In the prices of par
ticular farm products has reached - the
grower' Intlme to enable him to make a
much more profitable bargain with his com
mission merchant than he could otherwise
Social Benefits Conferred.
Lastly, the claim waa made that all these
material advantages would be equaled it
not surpassed by the social and educational
benefits conferred In relieving the monotony
of rural life, by bringing city and country
Into close connection, and giving the
farmer an opportunity ot keeping abreast
with the rest of the world, through the
dally receipt of his newspapers and corre
spondence, aa had hitherto been enjoyed
exclusively by the city man. How thor
oughly these features of the service have
Justified the clalma made In their behalf
la known to all who are familiar with the
operation of the rural free delivery system.
Urges Postal Checks. '
Millions of our people live more or less
remote from any postofflce, and a large
proportion of them are not able to buy
money orers or bank drafts without great
inconvenience. It la not unreasonable to
expect from the government that It will
provide an easy, convenient and aafe method
to transmit small sums,, say $2 or leas In
amount, without putting the sender to the
lnconvenlonce and expense which now ob
tain In the purchase of a dratt or postofflce
I urge upon congress the Importance of
passing some law at aa early a date as
possible. Hundreds of thousands of let
ters carrying email amounts in ailver or
postage stamps are transmitted every year
through the malls. - These letters are a
constant temptation to those handling them,
aa It la easy to Identify letters containing
currency. ' ' "
With the extension ot the raral frs de
ll vsry service to the remote parts of the
country, the use of the propossd postal
checks XfinM go tar to provide the relief
so urgently demanded, as It Would con
veniently serve those sections ot the coun

per mile traveled under the old contracts
waa 4.83 cents; under the new contrscts
It waa 6.68. At the average rate paid under
the " new contract a contractor ' traveling

let only to those persona who agreed to
reside on or contiguous to their routes
and to give their persons! supervision to
the performance of the service, and nearly
all the contracts provide for delivering mail
Into boxes along the routes wherever the
people desire such aervlce.
Box Delivery an Star Routes.
The system of box delivery service haa
now been applied wherever practicable to
all of the first contract section. Including
the statea from Maine to West Virginia,

ritories (three excepted) west ot ths Mis
sissippi river, having 6,037 routes, to ths
state of South Carolina and to miscel
laneous routes throughout tbe remainder
of the country wherever new contracts havs
been made, so that the people on consid
erably more than half ot all the star routes
In the United Statea are now given the ad
vantages of thla box delivery service. The
fiscal year Just closed waa the first year
of the contracts for this class of service
In the first contract Section, Maine to West
Virginia, and In June last Inquiries were
aent to each of the routea to ascertain the
extent to which the box delivery waa being
utilised. The repllea received from 4,840
routea show that 82.798 boxea or cranes
have been erected along these routea and
that 42,728 families are having their mall

Telia of Alaskan Rentes.
The contracta for ail transDortatlon In
Alaska expired on June 30 last' and new
contracta were' executed ' for service for
the term beginning Juljr.l. The first mail
transportation by railroad authorized In
Alaska waa that, which was established last

cept for four months of the year while the
ice Is either forming or breaking on tbe
Tukoa river, when the, service is to be
twice a month.
As the malls on these routea in tbe win
ter time must be carried by dog teams and
sleds, the weight is limited during- the
winter, but the contracta provide for carry
ing the malls by steamers during the sum
mer aeason on the Tukon without limit' of
weight as often aa tha ateamera may run,
wnicn win be more frequently than the
malls are carried at other seasons. There
Is a connecting route from Nome to Una

Railway Mall Servleo. .
At the doe ot the year there were 1,350
lines of traveling postofflees, covering 178.-
796 miles in length. Tbe number of clerks
employed was 9,781, annuat travel by them
In cara 221,689,999 mllea. To accomplish
this 1,785 cara and apartments were used
en the steam roads, besides twenty-four
oars on the electric lines under ths super
vision of the railway mall aervlce, and
eighty-three apartments on steamboats.
It Is estimated that these clerks handled
15,062.830.640 plecea ot ordinary mall and
24,174,174 packagea and caaea of registered
mall. The errors by clerks in handling the
mall as reported Indicate but one error
made for every 11,602 plecea correctly dis
tributed. There were 286 casualties to mall cars
last year. In which either mall or clerks
were Injured. Nine clerks were killed snd
eighty-eight seriously and 202 altgbtly in
jured. In the appropriation act for the
current year prevision waa made for ths
first time authorlxtng the postmaster gen
eral to pay to the legal representatives of
any railway postal clerk killed on duty
$1,000. This afforded a much needed relief
and eupplements the practice of the de
partment to continue to pay a clerk Injured
while on duty hia full salary for one year.
Legislation la needed for the protection
of railway postal clerka while In tbe dis
charge of their duties.
New and Improved service In lines of
full railway postofflce cars or apartment
cars during the last fiscal year waa ap
plied to 34.605 miles, which Is In excess
of the record of any previous year. Addi
tional car space was provided on lines
SRgregatlng over . 8,000 miles In length.
New trains at a high rate of speed have
been placed in operation on aeveral of the
trunk lines, furnishing greatly improved
schedules for te movement of the mails,
and by the extension ot other lines new
connections have been developed for the
more expeditious transmission of mails to
and from Important sections et the country.
Wacea Raised As;ala.
While no general law has been enacted
by congresa for the reorganisation and re
classification of the railway mall service,
much haa been done In various appropria
tion bills- ' The salaries of clerks of the
11,200 and $1,400 classes, which for yeara
were reduced by reason ot restrlcteJ ap
propriations to amounts less than the maxi
mum allowed by lift, have been restored.
A , higher class, at $1,600 per annum, baa
been created for chief clerks and allow
ances havs been made for their traveling
expenses.. A still higher clasa, at. $1,800
per annum, has been established for as-
I slstant division superintendents and pro
vision made for their traveling expenses.
Tha salaries ot division superintendents
have been increased, fifteen days annual
leave has been granted to clerka perform
ing dally aervlce, provision haa been made
to pay $1,000 to , the families of clerks
killed in tbe line of July, and provision
has been made tor tbe promotion of clerks
on the heavier apartment lines from $1,000
to $1,100 per annum and for the promotion
of assistant chief clerka and a number of
clerks on full railway postofflce lines op
erating more than one car to a train from
$1,200 to $1,300 per annum.
A change haa been made In the distribu
tion and dispatch of registered matter that,
will result In shortening the transit time
of that claas Of matter without affecting
Its security. The scheme for the distribu
tion of registered matter bave been
changed so as to avoid the delays at ex
change offices, the matter heretofore in
closed in the through registered pouches
being omitted to a large extent and for
warded as hand pieces. A system' of
through registered pouches to be made
up by the clerks ot the larger lines haa
been inaugurated, and epeclal equipment
haa been furnished with which to make
Bar Stamp Books Readily.
The increase in the demand for stamps
bound in books waa very great. The num
ber of books issued waa 7,093,274, containing
124,468,488 2 cent stamps, which is 61 per
cent more books than were Issued the pre
ceding fiscal year. The profit to the gov
ernment was $43,402.92.
' New designs covering the entire series
of adhesive and embossed stamps, are In
course of preparation. It la expected that
they will be ready for issue during the
coming winter. The new stamps will be
much more artistic than those of the pres
ent series, and will bear the namr of
the subject with ' the years of birth and
death. 7 -.

BULL FIGHT COMES OFF
Kansas City Haa Ita Show aad Officers
Do Not Interfere with the
' Performance. 1
KANSAS CITY. Nov. 27. A bull fight
waa given tonight in Convention ball, as
Originally planned, without Interference
from the city or county officers.
' The entertainment waa only an illustra
tion of a real buir fight as given in Mexico,'
without a touch of cruelty to the beasts,
and tha officers were satisfied. An au
dience of 2,000 people, including man)'
women, were present.
Often begins with a cold la tbe head, but
it never slops there. The tendency is 1
wsys from bad to worse. The simple cold
becomes a protracted, stubborn one, t he hot, "
watery discharge from '.he nose thickens,
sud is more profuse snd offensive. The in
Csmmation extends to the throat and bron-'
cbial tubes, causing hoarseness, a tickling
sensation snd an apgrsvsting cough. The
foul matter that is- continually dropping
back into the throat finds its way into the
stomach, resulting in a distressing form of
dyspepsia, nausea, loss" of appetite and
strength. The ca
tarrhal poisons are TUP R ATEWA Y
absorbedinto the '"it UMItnHf
blood, and all the JO
membranes and ,
tissues of the body, CONSUMPTION,
become infected, . , . ,
and what was supposed to be purely a local
disease baa-become constitutional, deep
seated and chronic. .
Sprays, washes, powders,' salves and '
other external remedies give only tempor
ary relief, and the disappointed and '
disgusted patient finally gives up in despair
and declares catarrh' incurable.
The only way to get rid of catarrh per
manently is to treat it through the blood.
The system must be toned up and all :
impurities removed from the blood, and
this 3. 8. S. does promptly and thoroughly.
It expels from the circulation everything
of an irritating, poisonous character allow-
ing tne innanea mem
branes to heal when
the mucous discharges
cease, and the damage -done
to -the health is
soon repaired. S.S. S. -
keeps the blood, in such a- healthy,
vigorous condition that cold, damp weather .
or sudden changes in the temperature are .
not so apt to bring on catarrhal troubles. .
S. S. S. ia a vegetable, medicine uneqttaled
as a blood purifier, and the best of all
tonics just such a remedy as is needed to
thoroughly and effectually cure catarrh.
