year, Oregon and Washington should
produce 100 carloads of dried prunes.

In answer to a letter in a feminine lumj
Inquiring "why so many men and boyi
congregate around country post-Oilices" we
will state. TI10 only answer we can give is
that they have a contract of wearing out
the door sill by roosting upon it and are in
a hurry to draw their salary and attention
toward their angular frames. They may
also be' waiting for a new brand of chewing
tobacco to come out at least a few samples
for they never get anything else through
the mail, as their creditors have long a : 1
ceased to dun them, a too expensive luxury
at 2 cents per dun. if this answer is not
sufficient, get some one else to try, is the
advice of Jaooeiis.
