as was that of the June number.

In New York women, married ones
among them, are becoming real estate
agents, druggists, clerks, doctors, law
yers and barbers, as well as type
writers, florists, milliners and act

thought that the New York home will
have passed out of existence entirely.
The salvation army people appear

and to submit to great'privations un
complainingly. A Woman's Idea About Kissing
In the old days when powder and
rouge were indispensable a gallant
gentleman kissed the hand of his fair
lady. And her hand was kopt immac
ulate, that this kiss might mean
much to him. Nowadays men don't
stoop down to kiss your hand. It
would get their trowsers out of
shape. So a clean face becomes a r,ec
essity to a woman who has any liking
for that expression of affection which
is generally approved of and seldom
Men have an idea that their kisses
are appreciated they are most im
mensely mistaken. The average man
gives a kiss just as he throws a base
ball with too much force. It ought
to be as delicate as a rose-leaf
almost a memory in a second. It need
not suggest a postage-stamp, nor a
Dolly, I think I could write a book
on kissing; but mankind is so deter
mined that I don't think he'd take
nny advice on thesubiect.andet as
it is the women who receive the
kisses, they certainly ought to" know
more about them than the great, big,
stupid creatures who give them.

A Little Misunderstanding In Swivel
What Belva Lockwopd Thinks Of The
Washington, July 18. A misun
derstanding has arisen over the re
cent reclassification of the depart
mental service It W03 the inten
tion of the civil service commission,
and the president as well, that the
new classification should apply to
the customs service. The order was
not so construed in the treasury de
partment, and the forces at the cus
tom houses remain in the same con
dition as July 1, no official directions
to the contrary having as yet been
AFTER THE COLLECTION AGENCIES.
Washington, July 18. There was
passed and approved by congress on
the 18th of last June, at the request
of the postmaster general, a bill mak
ing it a crime to print or write any
lewd, lascivious or threatening in
scription upon an envelope, or cover'
ing, or wrapper of any mail matter,
or upon any postal card. The pen
alty prescribed wa3 a fine of not leas
thanSlOO nor more than $5,000, or
imprisonment for a term not exceed
ing ten years nor less than one year,
or both. This law was enacted to
prevent the use of the mails by col
lecting agencies, many of which con
cerns exercised their privileges lor
blackmailing purposes. The com
mon method was to print on an. en
velope containing the dan, in con
spicuous letters, "Bad debts col
lected.'' or some similiar device, and
sending it through the mails to the
person from whom it was desired to
make the collection.
Since the passage of the law the
collection agencies have strnnk upon
a new scheme. They merely evade
the crovisions of the statute oy print
ing the obnoxious device in bold let
ters on a card and inclosing it in a
transparent envelote. and tbns mail
inzit It is thus seen as readily as
before; and is equally annoying. Sen
ator Vest has introduced a bill
making the law apply to the interior
as well as the exterior of envelopes or
wrappers. The collection agencies
will, therefore, have to inclose their
literature in ordinary envelopes.
BELYA LOCKWOOD'S POLITICAL OMN
Washington. July 18. Bel va Lock
wood, in on interview, expressed a
favorable opinion of Gen. Harrison as
a candidate for the presidency, but
thinks Cleveland will be elected. She
says she has made a canvass of the
country during the last few months
with a view to ascertaining tne optn
ions of the people on the presidential
"My candid opinion, without preju
dice or individual prelerenee or an
tagonism, is that Qrover Cleveland
will be re-elected. I think that the
new parties which have been forming
nave drawn mucn more largely irom
the Republican party than from the
Democratic party. If the prohibition
ists carry oat their intentions and
make a vigorous canvass they will
draw much more largely from the
Republican party than they did in
Mrs. Lockwood thinks that all the
new parties will poll surprisingly
large votes, and that the ticket of
jliockwooo, ana uove win cm a muru
prominent figure in tho campaign
than its opponents imagine.
Their Business Booming.
Probably no one thing lias caused such
a general revival of trade at J no. C. De
nieni's Drug Storo as their giving away
to their customers of so many free trial
bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption. Their trade is simply
enormous in this very valuable article
from the fact that it always cures and
never disappoints. Coughs, Colds,
Asthma, Bronchitis, Croup, and all
throat and lung diseases quickly cured.
Yon can test it before buying by getting
