Hitchcock has given a large order for the manu facture of postal cards of superior quality and lighter in weight a card that will take inkWriting clearly Accordingly the depart ment has contracted with the government printing office to turn out 3487000000 post cards It is calculated it will take four years to fil the order and that it will cost 93471795 While it is intended that the weight of the cards will be considerably reduced it is expected that their tensile strength will be increased The ectnomy in the weight item will be appreciated when it is learned that the postal cards as shipped by the manufacturers last year to the distributing centers weighed 61 200000 pounds and that the not only the transjportation reshipped from thet distributing points when they are mailed by t individuals and when reply cards are sent The postmaster general may decide to improve the ap pearance of the postal card by changing the tint of the stock and the color of the ink as well as providing a more artistic stamp Postal cards were issued first on May i 1873 under an act o congress passed June 8 1872 The number issued the first year was 34094000 This years issue is 900000000 A

The law is frequeptly viqlated through igno excusesfL no pne from punishment Two things most frequently lead the people to break the law One is xk indifference and nSgligence and the others the want

teachers the very best school houses and beautiful grounds requiring all the time the children to attend school regularly the great cause of edu cation will advance rapidly LOGAN Arnold Republican nominee for Magistrate inthe First District and Hardin Moore the Republican nominee in the Third District have failed to take any notice whatever ot our communica ton asking them if they would vote in their official capacity for the building up and improving of our county roads Their failure to answer means that they are opposing the building up of our county roads and highways which is so necessary for the success of farmers It means that they wouldvote as magistrates against any movement looking toward modernizing our roads It means that they are afraid to express themselves either far or against such a proposition If they are afraid to express themselves now they would be afraid to advocate any measure for the benefit of the roads after they are elected Hence it is the duty of the people of these two districts to defeat these two candidates No man be he democrat or republican should be elected magistrate unless he be boldly and unreservedly for goods roads JUDGE Will Cress candidate for Commonwealth Attorney in this District is a young man of courage and ability He is a Rockcastle boy having been born and reared agjgressivespi successful prosecutor He is strong but fair and just Every person charged with crime if he is elected will get a square deal but he will earnestly urgethat the guilty be punished in proportion to the seriousness of their offence judgefwe

assort ment ot grumbles and complaints when he tries to gather in the money that hes worked so hard to earn Theres the man whose telephone was out of service for about three hours the day we had that

like Mrs Jones across the street has got and the lady who didnt know it cost extra to talk longdictance and the lady who wants a reduction in her bill because her aunt out in Hopalong County South Dakota wrote that she got her telephone for severityfive cents a monthshe l 1 doesnt see why she cant get one that cheap also There are also others Once upon a time 1 knew a man to refuse to pay for a
