A Double Postal Card.
The new device which has been
adopted by the government, known
as the "double postal card," is con
siderable of an advance in postal
convenience, and promises to become
popular with those who have
an extensive business correspondence.
According to description, it will be the
same size as the card now in use,
worth just double as much, with a
stamp on each upper' corner. The
stamp on the upper right hand corner
will be canceled when the card is sent
for the first time, and the other one
when it is returned. When it first
goes, the writer puts his communica
tion on the back and the address of his
correspondent on the face. The re
ceiver answers on the same card,
erases his name and writes that of the
person who sent it to him. The origi
nal sender must be careful not to use '
all of the space on the card. The ad
vantages are economy and conveni
ence, and then too, as evidence in le
gal proceedings there is sometimes an
advantage in having a communication
and its answer together, on the same
card of paper.

If a person wishes to sec the evi
dences of prosperity about Astoria, hit
him take a stroll through the city and
witness the number of new buildings
in course of construction, by Messrs.
II. B. Parker, Capt. Flavel, Kinney,
Wright, Ferchcn, and others too nu
merous to mention. There is as
healthy demand for lumber and build
ing materials in the city as at any
former time for years past.

In the affidavit required of set-

days in either the military or naval
service of the United Suites during
the war of the rebellion." At first
glance this would look as though the

other blow at union soldiers, but such
is not the case. The Olympia Cour

ninety davs in the army or navy en

sixty acres of land within railroad
limits where others could only take
