Reports That it Is In Better Running
Order Than Ever Before Unusual
ly Large Holiday Rush Free De
Inspector T. J. Clarke, of Walla
Walla, spent Monday and Tuesday in
town checking over the business c'
the local postofTice. He found -very-thing
in very good shapp and 'n fact
he said last evening, that it was In
better running order than ever bcfoie.
Several changes novo been made re
cently in the office which have made
the work much more convenient and
tnsier on the employes. To this is
attributed a great deal of the Improve
Incidental to the holiday mail, the
business of the postofflcc is increas
ing rapidly. It is also said that the
volume of business, although always
heavy during the holidays, is very
much heavier than at this lime last
Letters Must Have Two Cents.
It was announced through the press
at tlio time tlio free delivery was es
tabllshed that no drop letters would
bo aeccpled unless they had the reg
ular two-cent stamp on them Just the
same as If they were addressed to
New York or Chicago. Some have
misunderstood this and thought that
a drop letter addressed to anyone In
the city would be all right as long
as the person to whom it was address
ed called at the office for It, out that
It would not bo delivered. This Is a
mistake. -No letter will be put in a
box in the office If the one to whom
addressed has a box unless it has the
two cents on It. People sending let
ters should bear this in mind. The
postmaster has been compelled to
send back several letters and mark
others "Held For Postage," just be
cause they were only adorned with a
one-cent stamp. "Absolutely no let
ters can be delivered without two
cents hereafter." said Deputy Post
master French this morning.
Now that the people have the de
livery they are showing their appre
ciation. For more than a year past
there has been greater demand for
postofTice boxes than could bo sup

In the iwstoilice, 150 have already
been given up although they cannot

By that time It is expected that m
less than 200 boxes will be given up
and perhaps more as the people will
appreciate the service more and more
and more as it grows In age. There
have Doen from 20 to 40 applications

Most oi ihesc applications were .from

and Deputy Postmaster Chas. French
says that from all appearances the
service is giving perfect satisfaction.
No complHlnt has been registered at
the office and the carriers have been

pected In the way or satisfaction
For nearly two years the people of
Pendleton anxiously awaited the slow
movements or Uncle Sam In estab

was put in readiness lor the service
but from time to time the matter was
postponed tor various causes lume

Miss May Stockton, Who Took the
Part of the Little Newsboy in the
Play Last Night, Was 19 Years Old
Miss May Stockton, in "The Little
Outcast.' which held the boards at the
Frazer last night, was Just 1 0 years of
ago yesterday. Miss Stockton has
been on the stage only thiee years,
but in this time she has made an en
viable reputation for herself and Is
making a wonderful success of her
She lias been taking the roll of Bob
in "The Little Outcast" company only
during the present season, but she
certainly portrays the life of a New
York newsboy very plainly and there
is a strain of loyalty and noble trains
in her character during the play
which wins not only the applause of
tlio audience wherever she goes, but
makes lasting friends for her.
AIlss Stockton has the distinction
of being tlio second actress to hoi
made an honorary member of the Se
attle Newsboys' Union. Sho played
"Tim Little Outcast" there aud the
newsboys were so pleased with her
rendition of the part that they called
a meeting and made her a honorary
member of their union, presenting
her with a very unique badge as a
token of their good will toward her.

All children need the ele
ments of fat in their food be
cause it is of first importance
in proper nourishment. Doc
tors say one child in forty is
properly fed the other
thirty-nine don't get a right
amount of fat in their food at
the right time.
If more children were given
Scott's Emulsion it wouldn't
take long before more than j
one in forty was properly fed.
There is in Scott's Emulsion
something that seems to take
hold of children who do not 1
get enough and proper nour
ishment from their every-day
First there is that important t
element of fat; this is con- 1
tained in the cod liver oil in
the very best and most desir
able form. Then there are ,
the hypophosphites of lime
and soda which tone the blood
and strengthen and nourish 1
the bones. The perfect com- '
bination of these food prin
ciples in Scott's Emulsion
makes this preparation of .
great value to all children.
