In an effort to determine the cause
for the filthy conditions about the post-
office, Postmaster John W. Minto was
asked to state reasons for the apparent
lack of service. He said:
janitor service Is not as good as I would
have It, but the reason for that Is tho
low wages paid for the work. One can
not expect to get good janitors for $48
a month when stores and halls are par
ing $76 and 180 a month for good men.
This has beea a particularly ticklish
subject with me for some time, and I
am doing my best tc improve conditions.
'This is near the end of the fiscal
year, and all appropriations are held
down to the very lowest point by the
department. It is my intention to take
the matter up with officials at Wash

this time J realise that such an effort
would be futile.

State Grange came to a close at a late
hour last night, The meeting this year
has been attended by men prominent in
educational, business, horticultural and
political affairs of the state and Its
support has been sought in matters af
fecting the public welfare. This is said
to be in recognition of the Strength it
has developed in legislative and other
questions and its far-reaching influence.
The sessions were religiously attended
by all entitled to do so and the order
is expected to receive a great impetus
from its work .during the past year. '
