=================== Page 1, Column 2 ===================
On the 1st Arthur Barnard, the paying teller of Dowie’s Zion bank, in Chicago, who had been missing for over a week, and who was believed to have met with foul play or an accident, walked into the bank and announced himself ready to resume his duties. Barnard, according to his story, left Chicago because of an estrangement with his sweetheart.

Miss Emma Jouris, President Golden Rod Sewing Circle, writes from 40 Burling Street, Chicago, Ill., as follows:
“This spring I suffered severely from the after-effects of la grippe. As the doctors did not help me I bought a bottle of Peruna.”—Miss Emma Jouris.

P. Pierce Wraps a Bill Around a
Stamped Card and It Goes Through
P. Pierce of 6407 Rhodes Avenue, Chicago, has unbounded confidence in the safety of Uncle Sam’s postal service. To prove it he wrapped a dollar bill around a card, affixed a two-cent stamp and a bit of white paper bearing the address, and started it on its way to J. A. Wayland, a newspaper publisher of Girard, Kan. When the novel packet went through the Hyde Park postal station it attracted the attention of Superintendent Crumpacker, who delayed its transmission until he could get from Postmaster Gordon a ruling on the question of sending money through the mails in that manner.
A search of the postal regulations and a conference of the powers at the post office brought forth the decision that it was a legal, though irregular and somewhat unsafe way to send money by mail, and the authorities allowed it to go on its way.
