HTTSBTIRG DISPATCH,. THURSDAY,-
Writers Generally to Blame for the
; Loss ot Them Nowadays.
AN EXCESS OF PITTSBURG CITIES.
Ion Hast Kot Talk and Direct Letters at
the Same Time.
CUBIOSITIES IN THE KIXIE BOXES
Anyone can run a postoffice in his
mind and most anybody -with an English
education might worry through the mazes
01 a villace postoffice, though he would
probably find the trouble of making out his
quarterly report worth more than his sal
ary, if time were an element in the calcula
tion. But in a large city, the first thing he
would find necessary would he a study of
geography, even though he be fresh from
school. The next thing would be the study
of phonographic, or sound waves, angles,
curves, shades of letters, or, as billiard
(players would say, the effect of putting the
English thereon, many addresses iurnish
ing curious studies in chirography. In a
talk with Mr. T. M. TJlam, of the Pitts
burg office, some of the preplexities of man
agement were conceived, of which tbe
readers shall be told as plainly as the writer
can make it out without active experience.
For instance, some of the most trouble
some things encountered are stray letters,
sort of wandering epistolary stars, that get
out of their orbit and swing through space
until the authorities exert as much trouble
for a cent, in getting them located, as would
in many avocations suffice to early the daily
bread of a family. Of these 20 to 40 come
to the Pittsburg postoffice daily, and they
do not eqnal in number the packages and
papers that also go wrong for want of
proper direction. If all efforts fail for two
weeks to find the persons addressed, letters,
postal cards and foreign papers are sent to
the dead letter office.
LOTS OF TROUBLE ABOUT IT.
"When a letter, postal card, paper or
package is received and is not addressed to
street or number, and has run the gauntlet
of the general delivery, and the name
cannot be found in the city directory, the
100 carriers or more are required to inspect,
and if they cannot locate the owner, it is
thrown into the "nixie" boxes, and at the
expiration of the fixed time, if not called lor
after advertising, sent to the dead letter
office at Washington, unless the card of the
sender is on the letter or package. In that
case an elaborate card is sent to him and he
is asked for particulars. Prom this may be
ren the. advantage to be derived even by
private individuals from having their ad
dress printed on cards and envelopes.
Only about one-third of these misdirected
missives are really sent to this city, as there
are not only a considerable nnmber of Pitts
burgs in the United States, but almost any
thing directed to a town the first syllable of
which is the same is liable in the hurry of
making up mails to be sent to this place.
But writers are so absent-minded that they
are liable if wishing to direct to Skowhegan
to write it Pittsburg or almost anything else
they may have in their minds at the time.
But few people can write and carry on a
conversation at the same time, and that is
evidently what many people attempt to do
in business. They are very apt, if anyone
speaks of a town when they are writing, to
write the name of that town.
The carriers inspect the "nixie"
boxes daily and directories of the
chief cities are kept on hand and frequently'
the man's name, where his business is given,
can be located in some of those cities. Not
withstanding all research and the utmost
vigilance, about 550 letters go each week
from this city to the Dead Letter Office.
SMABT JUST'S EREOES.
Another feature that controverts the idea
that trained business men are not liable to
make mistakes, is that the great bulk of
these mistakes are make by business men,
andiy the supposed sharpest of all business
men those of New Tork City. Buckle
sars statistics prove that a certain propor
tion of people put letters into the mail with
out direction each year, and that the
proportion never varies materially. It
might be that if the statistician would assort
his.workhe would find the bulk of the
"nixies" to come from business men. A
countryman who only writes once or twice a
quarter may occasion a smile by bis direc
tions, but h'e is almost certain to get them
all on in some shape or other. Por instance,
the writer once saw & letter directed "State
of Pennsylvania, Cambria county, Johns
town City, United States of 2forth America,
Mary Sickenbarger." Mary got her letter
It is quite frequently the case that when
a letter tails to reach its destination the
office is blamed, but inspection shows that
in a large majority of instances tbe sender
is to blame. An mstitntion that has been
in existence since established by the Bo
mans for state use and has flourished more
or less in Europe for more than six centuries
since the Hanseatic League put it in mo
tion, marvels in the matter of redncing cost
of transmission from 25 cents to 1 cent, but
has reached a high state of perfection and
is the one Socialists never fail to cite when
arguing for communism.
riTTSBUEG'S LITTLE DOUBLES.
It is barely possible that Pittsburg sui
Jens more from misdirection in this respect
than any other city in the country, as there
are 13 postoffices of that name in the
United States,, and in looking over the list
by inquiry or trace cards, it would seem
that Coraopolis is about the only
place in the United States that
hasn't been absent-mindedly substituted at.
some time or other for this city. That name '
doesn't seem to have gotten into the way
yet. There are Pittsburgs in Darke
county, Ohio: Hendricks county, Iowa;
one in Mississippi, one in North
Carolina, in Gunnison county, Col
orado; Peninah, Dakota; Carroll" county,
Indiana; Van Buren county.Iowa; Crawford
county, .Kansas; Laurel county, Ky.; one
in Michigan, one in Missouri, one in
Nevada, one in Coos county. New Hamp
shire, Pittsburg Courthouse in Texas, and
Pittsburg Landing in Tennessee. Then
there are two Pitts, Pitts-Cross-roads, nine
Pittsfields, three Pittsfords, four Pitte
towns, and so on almost ad infinitum.
Among the large accumulation of misdi
rects on hand it was found that the National
C. & M. Co. of New Tork was hunting the
Plumb Hardware Company of Pittsburg,
and when told it wasn't here recollected
that it was in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Geis & Co.-thought the Newton Coal Com
pany was in Pittsburg, but finally found it
in Pittston, Pa. Sheppard. Knapp & Co.,
of New York, want C. A Perry, but he
can't be found here, and the firm says if he
isn't here it doesn't know where to look for
STBAYED OE STOLES', SUBELT.
John A. McClusky and "Wesley S.
Allen seem to be lost also, even the fa
mous seven cities of Greece relusing to
claim them. The Kankakee Paper Com
pany wants to talk to the Fitch Paper Com
pany, and is hunting for it in Pittsburg in
stead of Chicago, where it is. Instead of
looking for Charles Leonard in Petersburg,
Va., and C. Davis at the Gibson House,
Cincinnati, they were sought bv mail in
Pittsburg, hough the writers confessed, on
second thought, they knew the men ad
dressed lived in those .places. Ida Grove
was probably thinking of something else
when she addressed a letter to John C. Tal
bot, Pittsburg, Pa! He would have gotten
it much sooner had it been addressed to
The list might be extended indefinitely.
It will be seen that the more or less popu
lar impression that postal clerks in a large
office have a snap and have little else to do
than read love missives on postal cards,
must go along with man v other comforting
delusions of the past. This may be a pleas
ant pastime for the lass who presides over a
village postoffice, but the clerks in a citv
office haven't time to knock a fly out and
the bald-headed ones wear skull caps in fly
time. THE GODFREY INQUEST.
The Coroner' Hearing In the Harder Case
Was Becnn Yesterdny.
At the Coroner's hearing yesterday in the
case of James Godfrey, who died at the
Mercy Hospital Tuesday night, the first
witness called as to the homicide was Mrs.
Annie King, who was supposed to be the
indirect cause of Godfrey's death. She tes
tified that Connellv. who did the cutting,
came to her house the night of the quarrel
about 730 o'clock. Godfrey came in about
1130 and got into a dispute about religion.
The discussion became very animated, and
the men began to scuffle. About 15 minutes
afterward Godfrey said to her: "Annie, I
believe I am cut." She saw blood on his
shirt and ran to the window, screaming for
She found the door had been locKed, evi
dently bv Connelly, who had made his es
cape by "a window to the roof. Both men
were under the influence of liquor, and in
the hospital Godfrey told her that Connelly
stabbed him. The inquest will be continued
A Boon for Suffering; Woman.
If there are times in life that ttry men's
souls, there are also times that try women's
souls. As woman's organization in general
is more delicate than man's, so she has spe
cial functions of a far more delicate charac
ter, which render her much more liableto
derangement and disease) and which require
much more skillful and careful treatment.
No class of diseases tests a physician's skill
or a medicine's efficacy more severely than
female diseases. No medicine has ever
proved itself more successtul in the cure of
such diseases than Pe-ru-na. Inthat most
trying of periods, which every middle-aged
woman must pass through, Pe-ru-na has
proved a true boon fo the sex. "I had been
a great sufferer for three vears," writes Mrs.
S. Smith, of Hillsville, Pa. "I had given
up all hope, when I commenced taking Pe-ru-na
and Man-a-lin. Now I am as well as
ever in my life." Begulate the bowels with
Man-a-lin. For sale by all druggists.
