Tho printing of postal cards for tlio
United Stntcs government has become
nn Industry of considerable magnitude
and wonderful improvements have been
mado in tho machinery for producing
tho millions of postal cards that aro
consumed ovcry year. Wo copy from
an exchange tho full particulars of the
methods now In voguo in producing
these cards, giving the process from
the rags to the finished card t In a
pretty ravino back of tho hill on which
Caslleton, N. Y., stands, ten miles be
low Albany, thero is a cluster of brick
buildings, a tall smokestack, and a
little brook that takes a seventy foot
tumble over tho rocks. Up on the side
of tho hill, in tho highest building,
hundreds of tons of rags and paper
pulp start t at tho bottom como out all
the postal cards and registered letter
receipts used in the United States,
boxed up for shipment. Tho larger

contract for makirg all the postal cards
tho Government wants at 47.71 cents
a thousand. Last year almost 400,
000,000 wero nsed, and the prico was,
54.43 cents a thousand. This year
they begin a now contract, and tne
company expects to mako closo to half
a billion cards under it Tho mill has
the usual paper-making machinery,
with a capacity of six tons a day,
Thero are three washing engines, four
beaters, arid two Bets of rolling ma
chinery. (Joe is used to mako posul
card paper, and the other to do book
work or any other of tho finer grades
of paper making. From four to six
tons of rags and a lot of paper pulp aro
consumed every day. It is an odd
thing that a large proportion of tho
rags comes from ex-Alderman McQuade
and tho people of the United States
every time they buy a postal card aro
indirect customers of he ox-Alderman.
At tho paper mill they give McQuado a
high character for furnishing good rags
and for keeping his contracts. If the
jury that tried him had been mode up
from people in tho mill ho would not
have been convicted. The postal cards
are mado almost entirely from racrs.
though occasionally a percentage of
wood pulp is introduced. When the
paper has been calendered it is taken
from tho paper mill a few feet to tho
postal card factory, in tho bis room
of the postal card factory are a dozen
men, two dozen girls, a large Campbell
press, four small cutters aud one largo
cutter, stacks of boxes, largo tables aud
a web of gearing and belts overhead.
The sheets aro taken to the Dress.

and tho eighty that aro needed to make

plates come from Washington, and last
two years without renewal. VVhen the
company took the contract at a re
duced rate they bad in mind several
now inventions, the most important of
wnien Mr. w. u. iiunce has been work
ing over for four years. Mr. Bunoe is
conneoted with tho firm of Woolworlh
& Graham, who have the postal card
contract. Two of his machines are in
operation in an inner room under the
onarge of Frank Shephardson. They
print from tho roll, and turn out tha
postal cards pasted in packages of
twenty-five. The machine does it all.
It prints the cards in the usual way of
a rciary press auu to tho minutp. A
set of knives outs the cards off. and
they drop out of the press four abreat

twenty-five have dropped out a set of

room, where the girls pack them in
boxes ready for deliverl v. An addition
to ho machino is contemplated which
will do its owo packing. There aro
two of these machines, and one man
can look after them both. He doesn't
need to touch them except to put on a
roll of paper. They cost $1,200 but
new ones can be made for half the
price. Another invention which they
control is a box machine, which dis
penses with the separtte glue pad and
knife of the old style machine. The
only man needed is a man to feed
pasteboard. The machine cuts it, glurs
it, and turns out a finished box at the
rate of 7,000 a day. An addition to
this machine is being made that will
mako boxes from a roll of pasteboard
as newspapers aro mado from a roll of
paper. When all these inventions are
in full working order it will not takp
more than half a dozen men to look
after them, and the only other labor

a good profit in making postal cards
then, though tho price ha fallen from
239 3-8 cents a thousand to 54.43 last
year and 47.71 now. Tho chief cost
is the paper, which is worth about a
quarter more than newspaper. The
rags to start with cost 2 to 4 cents a
pound. Tho postal card sells to the
Government for about 9 cents a pound.
All the rrst is paid to workmen and
girls or goes as piofit. Twenty-eight
girls and thirteen men, at an average
pay of 81,50 to $2 a day, make all the
postal cards. John O'Donnell, tho
iorcman gets $2.50.

Frank James, tho ex-bandit, has gone

James has resumed tho practice of the
bandit profession, for except iti the
cases of men possessing great natural

THE BUSIEST SECTION OK 1'lllt.A
DF.t.l'IHA. Tho bare, blank walls of a very old
burying ground aro frowned down up
on by flio towtrlng structures of manu

of Philadelphia. Insido tho burying
ground walls aro trees planted by men
who died f roai old ago years age. Birds

ilies in this cool oasis in tho great
desert of throbbing city streets. One
old man, bent and wrinkled, takes an
occasional walk over tho scarcely dis
cernible, grass grown paths, and his
aro tho only feet that tread this silent
city of tho dead.
In tho Atch street wall very near tho
corner an opening has been made.
The bricks have been taken away for a
space of perhaps a dozen feet. 1 (trough
an iron fenco wbioh covers this open
ing ono can get a glimpse of the peace
ful grouuds within. That gravoyard
was made long years ago aud the noisy
city has grown all about it, crowding
it and jostling it, but never encroach
ing beyond its walls. From sun up to
midnight there is a constant hurrying
of wagons and cars and human beings
by this necropolis. Yet that grated
opening has seldom a visitor, though
thero lies within a few teet of it the
dust of a man whoso profound wisdom
and humanity moved tho wholo civil
Not three blocks away stands a great
institution bearing his name an insti
tution fostering all that is scientific
and that lives to learn tho hidden
things of nature's laws ; that fosters
and encourages tho genius of men and
teaches industry and the value of solid
learning. Less distant in tho opposite
direotion lies a great public square, one
of those beneficial breathing-spaces of
the city's pent-up masses, bearing his
name. By its sido there runs a long,
wide street bearing his name. And alt
over tho city there aro mills and print
ing shops and factories and foil rider ies
bearing his name, while all over tho
State and tho country there aro towns
and townships and counties also boar
ing his name. Yet there lio his bones
down in the heart of this big city, with
arteries throbbing with tbo work and
pleasures of men, beneath a thin Btono
slab, which grows greener and thinner
year by year, obscured by the lightest
snows of winter, the earliest grasses of
summer and the first fall ot autumn
leaves. A singular end of a marvel
ous man !
I looked through the bars. With
much craning of my neck and much
pressintr of mv face acrainst the bars I
mado out this simple, fast-fading in
scription in tho thin marblo slab :
; Benjamin :
: ani ;
; Deborah Franklin. :
Benjamin Franklin, after many years
spent abroad enlightening men, gain
ing fresh wisdom and laurels, came
home to live in quiet retirement with
his son-in-law, Col. Richard Bache, at
the old mansion, which stood in a
large park on Market street, near
Fourth, this city. Shortly after that
ho wrote a friend : "I am now in the
bosom of my family and find our four
little prattlers, who cling about the
knees of their graupapa, afford me
great pleasure. I am surrounded by
my fiiends and have a good daughter
and son-iu-law to take care of me. I
have got into my niche, a very good
house, which I built twenty-four years
ai;o and out of which I have been kept
ever since by employments." Frank
lin bad a small printing-press set up on
one of the upper fioois of the house,
with which he amused himself many
an hour by his experiments. But so
busy a lite was not destinod to bp pro
longed in quietness. He had been
settled but a short time when his life
light went out on Saturday, April
17, 1790, when be was nearly eighty
five. Three dajs later, now nearly a
hundred years ago, his remains wero
conveyed to the old f riend s liurying
Gruund and placed beside lhot of his
wife and the thin stone slab laid over
There was mourning throughout
this and other lands. Twenty thou
sand peoplo crowded the streets around
that old burying-gi'ound on the day of
the funeral, and as the simple cortege
passed over the few squares between
the house and the grove bells through
out the city tolled aud minute gnns
boomod mournfully. Clergymen of
the city of all denominations, the Su

of whioh Franklin had been President;
the State Assembly, Judges of the So

officials of tho citv, printers and their

David Rittcnhnuse. Following tlo
death and burial of Franklin came hon
ors and eulogiums from everywhere.
In Congress, Madison offered a reso

nature than his various exertions of it

of trees and shrubbery wherever it
may he proper mid convenient so to

scholars unite in making it a day for
the adorning of tho grounds suiround

towns and villages mako it a day for
planting of trees nlong their streets.
Let thu peoplo in our rural regions see

I took Athlophoros and 1 think it helped

Not So Very Large-
A rather good story is told at tho ex
pense of Ira Shafer, the great legal ex
pounder, of New York. Some live
years ago Mr. Shafer had occasion to
appear in one of the courts of Frovi
dence, It. I. Of course, he appeared
for the defense. As a New York at
torney ho naturally put on a few frills,
which did not endear him to the
Court and the other attorneys in the
least. Finally a ruling of tho Judge
throw tho bumptious Mr. Shafer into
a stale of mind. He expressed his
opinion as to the provincialism of
rrovtuence, and intimated that he was
not receiving the consideration due a
dir-tiugnished rt present ativo of the
JNew lork nar. "hook here, Mr
Shafer," sa'd the Judge, "we all un
derstand that you are a New York
lawyer ot distinction. New York is a
big city, too; but if all tho rascals and
shysttrs wero sent to the penitentiary,
it wouldn't be a bit bitrtier town than
Providence." Mr. Shafer's respoct for
the Court was very much increased at
tms point in the proceedings.
