"PICK UP" FOR UNCLE SAM.
Million, of Dollara of Unclaimed
Money in the Treasury.
There are millions upon millions of
dollars In the treasury paid in from dlf
ferent sources which belong to citizen
of the United States. To this wealth
the postofflce department, through the
money order office, contributes largely.
A few years back the postmaster gen.
eral deposited with the treasurer nearly
$8,000,000, the money from uncashed
orders which had accumulated since the
office was started In 1863. At first no
effort was made to restore this un
claimed money to its rightful owners,
but the letters of advice, turned in as
unpaid by the postmasters from all over
the country were kept, in case a de
mand should be made for their pay.
ment. This money remained to the
credit of the money order office, show
Ing a large profit for the service. This
policy was subsequently changed, and
now the office endeavors to refund the
money to the remitters by a draft
drawn on the treasury. This rule ob
tains In cast of money orders less than
ten years old. Letters of advice older
than this are destroyed.

"I've heard a good deal about coer

he leaned over the desk of a Washing

the public in general don't know what
coercion is. Just wait till you get wom

thing about It."

ury. .there are many reasons to ac
count for this large number of money
orders not being cached. In some In
stances orders are filed away with oth
er papers and forgotten. More fre
quently the letter containing the order
Is lost or stolen, and the order never
reaches the addressee. This is true of
the orders made out to the large shops
which do not receive the order or the
accompanying letter containing orders
for goods to be shipped, owing general
ly to the dishonesty of employes. There
er cases, too, where men have used
the money order office as a bank and
have made out orders to themsehes
which, owing to sudden death or other
cause, have never been claimed.
1 It Is difficult, however, to explain why
such large sums remain unclaimed, for
In case an order Is lost a duplicate Is
easily obtained. Application Is made
by either the remitter, the payee or the
office of payment, and a duplicate Is is
sued with only the delay necessary to
comply with the forms. A year ago
the department made a ruling that du
plicate money orders could not be Is
sued In less than three months from the
time when an application was filed, but
this was found Inconvenient, and this
order was rescinded.

Knew the Bible.
At one of the recent revival services
held at noon In Old Epiphany Church
a ragged, unkempt tramp walked in,
apparently supposing it to be a charit
able soup establishment. When ' he
saw his mistake he started to go out,
but was stayed by one of the evangel
ical workers. "Stop with us," he said.
But the tramp persisted in going out,
saying: "I'm in de wrong place." "No.
you're not," responded the evangelist:
"we are glad to see you." "But," said
the tramp, "youse are all strangers ter
me." "That may be," replied the other,
"hut we nre all servants of the Lord,
and the Iord, you know, went among
strangers." "Yaas," sententlously add
ed the tramp, "and they didn't do n
thing ter him." Dumfounded by the
display of Biblcal learning, the gentle
man allowed the tramp to paw, and
when outside the door he was observed
to sigh deeply and walk rapidly away
with the air of a man who had Just es
caped with his life.

This happy couple were born in West

"Finally, despite my opposition, my
husband called in a ' physician, who
attributed my ailment to rheumatism
and prescribed for that complaint. A
day or two afterwards he changed his
opinion, saying I was attacked with la
grippe; also changed his medicine, but
to no purpose. I was going from bad
to worse. The tingling sensations
were resumed. At times I would be
incapable of doing anything with my
hands and my husband was fearful that
I was suffering from partial paralysis.
"One evening, while reading the
rew , roric iriuune, lie read to men
statement of a wonderful cure perfected
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He and
I had at times read similar testimoni
als describing the great powers and
virtue of these pills. But this night
in particular, I was impressed with
what he read and told him it wouldn't
do any harm to try a box. The next
morning he purchased a box of the
Pink Pills and I commenced taking
them according to directions, three
times a day. Within a week I felt
better, and when I had finished that box
I asked my husband to got me another
and he laughingly complied, saying,
'conceit is as bad as consumption, but
even if you think they are doing you
some good there is a great relief ex
perienced." After that he purchased
for me about a dozen more boxes, and
for nearly two years I continued taking
them. The result was I regained my
strength, the tingling in arms and legs,
hands and feet ceased and the frequent
sweats which I had been subject to
left me. In all truth, I am forced to
state that the Pink Pills made a new
j woman of me. Thut is," she laughing
ly remarked, "as new as you can make
a woman who is now in her 76th year. "
And in truth, Mrs. Moore's closing re-
murks are well founded, for she is as
hale and healthy looking as any woman
could be who has lived her great age.
