master Is Increased to
One of tho best indications of tho
well-nigh miraculous growth which
Marshfleld is experiencing is a glance
at tho postal receipts of tho local
office. In 1S9S, when W. B. Curtis,
tho present postmaster, took charge
the receipts for that fiscal year were
$3,348.40. Nino years later for .the
fiscal year of 1907 tho postal re
ceipts were $S,103.75, an increase of
$4,755.35, or over double of what it
was when Mr. Curtis took charge.
When Mr, Curtis took charge of
the post offlco tho salary attached
was $1,400, which was later -ralFcd
to $1,S00. He has now received no
tice of another raise of $200 in sal
ary, which will take effect with the
beginning of the fiscal year in July.
This will place Mr. Curtis' salary at
ALLIANCE COMES IN
Tho steamer Alliance arrived from
Portland yesterday with a cargo of
400 tons of general freight. A fine
trip down is reported. A delay of a
day in Portland was caused by the
high water, which has gone down
sufficiently now not to cause any
trouble on the arrival of the boat on
the return trip. All freight on the
lower docks at Portland had to be
removed to the high ones on account
of tho water covering the former.
