' jtt the annual report of Postmaster
General Robert J. Wynne, for the
fiscal year ending June 30, just Issued,
he urgently recommends the estan-
lishmeit of a new rate of postage in
connection with the rural service for
the delivery of small parcels. It is
shown that there has grown up a de-
mand by patrons of the rural free de-
livery service for the handling of
light packages of merchandise, and
the present rate of one cent per ounce
Is declared practically prohibitive.
For instance, a grocer who receives
an order over the telephone for a
pound of coffee would havo to pay six-
teen cents to send It by rural delivery.
The postmaster general suggests to
congress that a rate of three cents
per pound or any fraction thereof be
authorized for packages of ihls class,
no parcel to exceed five pounds. This
rate la intended to apply, however,
only to packages deposited at the lo-
cal postofflee for delivery to patrons
on routes from that office. A special
stamp is recommended for this class

Kirkland. 111.. Jan. 2nd—(Special)
—Cured of the terrible Rheumatic
pains that made him a cripple for
years, Mr. Richard R. Greenhon, an
old and respected resident of this
place is shouting the praises of the
remedy that cured him, Dodd's Kid-
“I had the rheumatism in. my leu
limb so that I could not. walk over ten
to fifteen rods at a time, and that by
the use of two canes." Mr. Greenhon
says. “I would ha\e to sft or lie
down on the ground when l was out
trying to walk and the sweat would
run down my face, wrtth so much pain.
1 could not sleep at jiight for about
five or bIx weeks.
“I tried different doctors' medicines,
hut they were all no gt>od. T ben 1
sent for Dodd’s Kidney Pills and
almost from the first they brought
relief. By the time 1 had taken four-
teen boxes of them my rheumatism
was all gone and I can truly say 1
feel better than 1 have in the last

It was In the melee of blood and
sword that I saw a sight that touched
roe deeply. I noticed two men In otfi
ranks; and later I found out that the
younger’of these men came from A
well-to-do Samurai family; the older
man was also from the same place.
In fact, the falher of the older man
had spent all his life in the service of
the family from which the yohnger
man came. On this terrific day. when
they were within a few meters of the
Russians, when they fought with
rocks, qwords and anything they
could get hold of, I saw these men
cling to each other' closely. At the
height of the bloody excitement the
older seemed to be mindful of the
younger, always. At one time a few
of the Russians actually succeeded in
rushing upon a part of our line. One
of the Russians raised the butt of his
rifle, about to Btriko the younger of
these two men. Then I saw the old-
Ter swing forward and literally hurl
down the Russian with the bayonet
through his body. A little later the
young man was shot in the leg and

and not finding a piece of cloth, he
tore the front of his shirt. He stuffed
a little piece of cloth Into the bullet
hole In the leg of his friend. Then,
after a little while, because of the
fierceness of action about me, I lost
sight of these men. When I came
upon them a few minutes later they
were together, side by side. As I
passed I said to the older man, who
was half standing, always covering his
young master: “Can't you manage to
carry yourself to the rear with your
friend—to the field hospital, or to
some shelter from behind the hill?”
“Oh, It is all right.” he answered.
“My young master Is wounded a lit-

a Russian bullet had made upon Ills

* Found His Cows.
“Speakin’ of winds,” said a romanc-
er at Canadian experience the year I
took a claim in Beaver county. Okla-
homa. The first summer It was pow-
erful windy and dry. I had two cows
that I took down there with me. and
lariated ’em out on the prairie near
my dugout, so that they would be
handy at milkin’ time. Well, one .lay-
in July there come up a wind, and
when I went out to look for my cows
blamed If they were anywhere in
sight. Then I happened to look up,
and them two cows was floatin' 'round
In the air. The wind had blowe.l 'em
out and up to the ends of the 200-foot
picket ropes, and there they was like
anchored kites. The wind kept on
blowin’ till evenin’ and held the two
cows steady in the air about 80 Teet
from the ground for six hours steady.
It was milkin’ time, and I was both-
ered. to know how I was ever to get
them cows, when a happy thought
struck me all of a sudden. I went into
the dugout and got a few ears of corn.
Then 1 called the cows ami showed
’em the corn. It worked all right.
Both of ’em come n-walkin down the
ropes as slick as you please; wan t
neither of ’em hurt a particle. —Kan-

Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold |
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because It
never sticks to tho iron, but because
each package contains 10 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
8tarchcs are put up In %-pound pack-
ages, and tho price is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
gtarch is free from all Injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-oz. package it Is because he hae
a 6tocl; on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before- he puts In Deltanco.
