Missouri penitentiary and render-
ed by one of the convicts.
The convict who is responsible

Onn of the big problehis that is
engaging the attention of congress
at.this session is the passage of an
act or acts that will take up the
slack in the big deficit of the
postoffice department and also
give a material increase in pay to
the mail carriers. One of the
things that seems inevitable is
that the rates of postage on news-
papers and periodicals will be mat-
erially- increased. This, in turn,
will mean that the country news-
papers will be compelled to in-
crease their subscr ption price or
quit. It will at least mean that
subscribers at a distance will be
compelled to pay an increased

ing matter will be practically pro-
hibitive for the smaller newspap-
Just as soon as congress enacts
Its laws in this respects, we ex-

rates for all subscribers outside of

of $1.90 per year will be impos-

not approved by the bond depart-

the proceedings. It will be nec-
