.The .Chicago correspondent of
; j¡hd N. Y. Times in the issue of the
£d tells about the following queer
jblnnder of a letter carrier.
Letter Carrier Plumber of the
Chicago Post Office, was discharged
today for, among other things, his
responsibility for the following
comedy of errors: A Mr. May bury,
whose home is in Chicago, went to
Brownsville, Texas a month ago to
attend to 6ome business. Soon after
Jie arrived at Brownsville he sent a
registered letter to his wife, for
which she receipted. The receipt
was of course sent to Brownsville.
Plummcr saw this receipt by acci-
dent and took it for an order to
fbrward Mrs. Maybury's mail to
that point. After that when he was
given letters to her he returned
thein to Brownsville, where he sup-
posed she was living. On the re-
ceipt of "return" letters the hus-
band was almost distracted. He
'sent letters of inquiry to his wife
begging her to explain, but the
carrier seized and promptly return-
ed them. All the while Mrs. May-
!bury was writing to h<¡r husband
'punctually, complaining in each
letter of his failure to write. After
writing a dozen letters explaining
what had happened, and being
compelled to receivc and read the
sanie explanations on the return
mail, he left his business and hur-
ried to Chicago.

BURIAL PLACES OF TI1E
Although Washington, the cap-
ital of the nation, is naturally the
place one would list choose as most
appropriate for the scpulcllcr of
our presidents, it is surprising that
only General Taylor was buried
there. In the following list will bo
found the place of sepulture of all

The base ball clubs of the coun-
try aro making a mistake by their
adherence to the present pitching
rule. Since the practice of throw-
ing was adopted the game has lost
its chief interct, for batting is nows
well nigh out of the question. If
the aim is to secure a method of
delivery which, will render it abso-
lutely impossible for the striker to
hit a ball, and occasionally kill one,
an ordinary field piece might be
put in the pitcher's stand for the pin-
pose of discharging the ball accord-
ing to the rules of warfare. Under
the present arrangement the best
of clubs, when pitted against each
other, secure their victories by er-
rors arising from the tremendous
stiain that is put upon the pitcher
and catcher. This may be en joy-
able to the players, but it certainly
is not ito the spectators. A game
won on passed balls, wild pitches,
or called balls, is a poor game, and
that is what most of tho league
games arc now.—Chicago Herald.
