Postman Makes Fortane la Real Es

postoffice known aa Station Y, on Third
avenue, near Slxty.elghth street, employs
three letter carriers whose total welath
aggregates nearly $500,000. .
The men are Martin l Henry of 1W8"
Bathgate avenue, the -Bronx; William W.
Munroe of 201 East Beventy-second street
rtnd Ix)uls Gates of 1220 Third avenue.
These men,' although Independently
wealthy, through extra effort during leisure
hours, still trudge from house to house
daily with mall bag and whistle, content
to accept a salary of $1,000 a year "which
t'nele Sam provides for his postmen.
In every case the fortunes were made
through shrewd investments In real estate.
In order to save from their salaries the
amounts they possess each letter carrier
would have been obliged to put aside every
property In other boroughs.
Letter Carrier Munroe, who has deliv
ered letters for nearly twenty years, has
also managed to gather together a com
fortable fortune. ' According to his fellow
cajrlers he will leave the employ of Undo
Sam next September, If not before, to live
on the large farm near Saratoga, N. Y
which he recently bought. He Is now
waiting to see If the present congress will
vote a pension to those letter carriers who
have been in the service twenty years.
If the law is passed Munroe will wait until
nekt September, when he will have served
tttat length of time.
Postman Gates has long been a partner

Martin L. Henry, who Is considered the
richest postman In the world, haa a fortune

started twenty-four years ago aa a letter

After the legless and armless veterans
