Enough stamps will be issued this year to supply each individual in the United States with at least sixty stamps each. Distributed among the population ctf the entire globe, they supply each person with postage fol not less than three letters. Placed side by side in a continuous line the total issue would girdle the entire earth three times, forming a variegat ed ribbon around it nearly three inches in width.
