EXFERT STODLERSf CANCELED STAMPS CLEANED AND USED A SECOND TIME. ilciuoving Cancellation JIarks by Means of Acids?The Clever Trick of Cutting Stamps?Wonderful Skill and Ingenuity of the Dishonest Operators. "The most troublesome offenders against government laws are the experts who use conceled postage-stamps," said a postofflce official the other day. "They have a system of washing out the cancel lation marks that is so successful as to make detection almost impossible. In the offices of large cities like New York and Chicago, where so many letters are hand led daily, and where rapidity iy the most desirable feature, it is impossible for the men who cancel stamps to examine each one carefully. Then too, a great deal of the work Is done by gas-light, and this ia a point which tends to aid the conspirator against the government's income. "Anyone who has seen a postofflce em ploye in the New York office grab a bun dle o41 letters and cancel the stamps with lightaing-llke rapidity can ...

THOSE SMALL WHITS HANDS. Those ?mall, white hands, how peacefully fciey rest, Crossf olded there upon her little breast, And were it not that they oft rise and sink, With her calm breathing, one would surely think That she had dropped asleep at death's behest. I love to feel upon my cheek impressed The touch of those soft palms in mute re quest; ' : For" love dwells in those palms so white and pink; Those small, white hands. Perhaps in future days they will arjesc A portion of the woe to man bequest; Perchance may lure from dire destruc tions brink Sorna erring souls by holding forth the link To biad them unto God, content and blest, Those small, white hands.

"?? AT PEACE. And I said, "She is dead; I could not brook Again on that marvelous face to look." But they took ray hand and led me in, And left me alone with my nearest kin? Once again in that silent place, My beautiful dead and I, face to face. And I could not speak, and I could not stir, But I stood and with love looked on her. "With love, and with rapture, and strange surprise I looked on the lips and the cold-shut eyes; On the perfect rest and calm content, And the happiness there in her features blent; And the thin white hands that had . wrought so much, Now nerveless to kiss or to fevered touch. My beautiful dead who had known the strife, The pain and the sorrow that v. e caU Life.

AN OLD AUTOCRAT. Who was he? Why, the colonel, of course! What other man in that big .family of overgrown children occupies 'die "proud position of absolute monarchy? And what was his name? Thomas Cre veccBur. He was an autocrat?an absolule mon arch?a martinet of the fiercest and most unreasonable description, and he com manded the gallant regiment known as the Eighth dragoons. Behind his back they called him "Tommy," "Our Old Man," "Old Fireworks," and the like; but to his face it was "yes, colonel," aud "no, colonel," hi the most meekly-mouthed manner. Occasionally the youngsters played very judicious pranks on him; that is to say, when ' Tommy" got three sheets in the wind he was wont to unbend considerably, and they therefore had to fall in with his humor, and if lie joked, joke back again; but it was unsatisfactory work?so akin to playing with lighted matches over an open barrel of gunpowder.

MRS.CROWLE'S GHOST. My sister Deborah had always had a ?fency for the house^-a gable-roofed, "broad-porticoed old stone house, standing back from the house in the midst of a square garden and fruit trees. And so ?when, in driving past one day, we saw the . notice "To Let" posted upon the front .,. gate, we alighted and walked up to the graveled pathway to make inquiries. An old negro woman opened the door and showed us into the parlor, v, nen the lady of the house soon appeared. She wns a tall, slender and rather handsome ?woman, with bright, jet-black eyes and hair, and a perfectly clear and colorless complexion. She explained that she was the owner of the house, and had lived here alone with one servant since her husband's death, about two years previous. The house was too large for her use, and she desired to let the main portion of it, re taining the wiug of three rooms for her use. The arrangement and terms suiting ns, we soon came to an agreement, and in less than two weeks th...

WHAT IS THE USE? What Is the use of this impetuous haste? The end is certain. Let us take our time And hoard the vital forces that we waste Before our day has reached its golden prime. What is the use of rushing with spent breath After old age, its farrows, its white hair? Why need we hurry so to welcome Death, Or go half way ^rith hands stretched out to Care? \ There is no use. Dear hearts, if we but wait All things will find us. Let us pause, I say. We can not go beyond the silent gate That lies a short day's journey down the way.
