European War !
Costs Postal Service
Millions of Dollars
Washington, Dec. 13. In his annual
report upon postal administration dur
ing the fiscal year 1915, Postmaster
General Burleson announces an audit
ed deficit of $11,33:1,308.97, caused by
the European war and large increases
of expenditures which wore mandatory
under law. The cost of the war to the
postal service is estimated at
the postmaster general states that
efficiency of service was placed above
cost consideration and tnat, notwnn
standine the advorso revenue condi
tions, steady expansion and improve
ment of postal facilities have contin
ued. However, he shows thoat the def
icit would have amounted to at least
$24,000,000 but for the reorganization
of various branches of the service
along modern business lines begun be
fore the war started and continued
during the disturbed period.
Of the total deficit, Mr. Burleson's
analysis demonstrates that all b-
$309,688.16 was the result or me in
creases of salaries of postal employes
and additional railway irmil pay requir
ed by law.
Extracts from tho more important
chapters of the report follows:
The year ended .Tune 30, 1915, was
an abnormal one. Surpluses of $3,800,
000 and $3,500,000 wero reported and
covered into the treasury for the fiscal
years 1913 and 1914, respectively,
showing that the postal service had
beon put upon a solf-suntnining basis
after a long period of annually recur
ring deficits. Had normal conditions
prevailed, a third successive surplus
would have been paid into tho treasury
for tho fiscal year 1915.

SUNDAY'S JUNIOR SERMON
Loyalty" was the subject of the
junior sermon Sunday morning in the
First Presbyterian churcli by the pas
tor, Carl H. Elliott. The text was
Mr. Elliott said that we should be
loyal to our country. Benedict Arnold
is universally despised because he was
a traitor to his country. We should be
loyal to our friends. The story of
Damon and Pythias is precious because
it is the story of friends who were
ready to give their lives for each oth
er. Everyone should be loyal to principle.
Wm. 1 loyd Garrison was a friend of
the slave long before the majority of
the people believed that the negro
should be free. Ho talked and wrote in
behalf of the slave with suoh.rpers'isteiiee
that people threw bad eggs at him and
persecuted him m many ways, .bong
afterward when tho slave was free and
nearly everybody believed as he did, a
group of his friends gave him a gold
watch and when he rose to make a lit
tle speech accepting it he said, "If this
were a Totten egg I would know what
to do with it."
We should be loyal to Jesus. Over in
Armenia many Christian girls have been
threatened with worse than death if
they would not become Mohammedans.
Some of them have accepted the terms
but very many have stuck to Jesus. If
they aro so loyal there where it is so
hard, wo should surely be true to Hiin
here where it is so easy.
