Chiids. postmaster at Kiinsas City, Kansas, formerly a resident of this county, is making rapid progress and is said to be slated for first assistant jiostmasier general.: .Mr. Childs has u host of friends la this county who w-ill be plad to learn that he Is In line for even a better jiob^tiuu than the one he now holds. A recent Issue of The Kansas City Journal contained the followlnp. ••From llu- present indications it appears that the Kansas delegation at tVashinpion is entertaining strong hope of landing a Wyanilotte county man for the iiosition of first assistant postmaster general. It is contended that Kansas has not heretofore received the recognition to w-hich she Is justly entitled, and a concerted effort is being made to secure this recognition from the incoming administration. \V. R. Childs. iiostmaster at Kansas City, Kas., Is receiving the united support of the Kansas deigation for the position and is conceded by many to lie the most available candidate. The rumor which gained credence in \V"a.sh ington circles a few days ago to the effect that .Mr. Cliilds Is slated for this position, was revived again yesterday upon the return of tlie postmaster from Washington. Mr. Childs refused .i.eaterday to discuss the matter other hart to ailniit that he had heard the rumor and that he numbered many friends among the Kansas delegation II Washington. It is not likely, however. I bat a proffer of this position would b.» refused b> the Kansas City. Kas.. postiiiasti-r. "It is, ill my opinion, a great honor hat even my close friends should liKik illiou me ill the lipht of a iMissible candidate for this position." s;iid Mr. 'hilds. , ".\ly business in Washington, lowever, has been upon an entirely lifferent matter. I have devoted most >f my time to an effort to secure the additional appropriation of $!mii(Mi for in addition to the federal biiiiillng in Kansas t;ity, Kas. "I can say that the appropriation for he federal building in Kansas City, Kas., Is practically assured," said Mr, Chillis yesterday. .\mong other Improvements which will be made In connection with the federal building and the postiil her vice ill Kaii.s;is City, Kas., Is the Imiii- giii-ation of a plan to facilitate the handling 'if mail. The second iisslst- aiil iiositiiaster general htis granted pernii.-sion for a distributor to hi placed in llie mail cars on the trip to and friiiii the I'liion depot. A clerk from the office wiil accomjiany the car upon sneoial trips during disirl- Initloii hours. .\s soon as the first mail sack is placed in the car at the depot, the work of as.-;orIing the mail, ready for the carriers, will begin. It is hoped by this method to save considerable time in assorting the mail. Hy the time the car reaches the post- office practically all the mail w-ill be in readine.«s for the carriers. Tills plan is in oiieration In a few t.f the larger titles of the I'uited States and is meeting with the aiiprov- al of the iMistmasters throughout the country. The i>lan will be put in operation in Kansas City. Kas., some time during the coiniug week. The dejiartment has also given permission for the establishing of an additional station in Kansas City. Kas. It has not yet lieen determined where this station will be located." Of Interest lo Women. X'mas present free. .A New Invention.
