A petition for the establishing of i postal savings banks, embracing a copy of the bill, as proposed by the Chicago Record, is being circulated In this city. Every voter is requested to sign it. Among its strong points are the following: First—To the people personally: 1. Absolute security from loss. 2. Convenience of making deposits, 3. Repayment tot affected by i change of residence. 4. Safety against personation and fraud. 5. Prevention of poverty or temporary want by developing habits of thrift and saving. 6. Gives, where no other bank exists, a means of ready and safe deposit. 7. Discourages reckless and speculative expenditures. 8. Educates the young and untrained to a knowledge of the use and value of money. 9. To the young it also helps to £ive bookkeeping and business habits. Second—To the government: 1. It >prevents borrowing from .1 broad. 2, Places the money (whether regarded as a loan or otherwise) under the control nf domestic legislation. Third —To the country: 1. The people receive the profits (Interest) of their savings when such are used as a public investment. 2. The increased wealta arising from deposits and accumulated interest, is kept within the country itself and not sent abroad to swell the wealth of another country. 3. By the wide distribution of repayments, money thus invested can promptly reach points needing it suddenly from local causes, 4. In remote places stringency from too limited ordinary bank facilities is prevented or lessened. 5. The laboring people are taught to feel a diiect personal interest in the stability of the country. (Is there anything that can tend more to solidify a people than a people's universal bank than this?) 6. Sectionalism ameng the less intelligent classes is lessened and the welding or fusing ot foreign elements promotec by such a common national institution. There are numerous other advantages to be considered. The bill is not the product of a single mind at work upon the subject. It represents ideas and practical suggestions,, gathered from many sources. The first poatoffice savings bank was established in Great Britain in 1861. The act putting tbe system in operation there was championed by Mr. Gladstone, then master of the exchequer. LowlDs, in his "History of Savings Banks," says of the postal savings bank of Great Britain: "Next, perhaps, to the repeal ot the corn law, this is the greatest boon ever conferred on the working classes of the country, and next to the scheme of penny postage itself, the scheme of postoffice banks is the greatest and most important work ever undertaken by the government for the benefit of the nation * * * The success of the postoffice banks has ADDITIONAL LOCALS.

" At the age of two months, my baby began to have s.ores break out on his right cheek. We used all the external applications that 'vre could think OT hear of, to no avail. The sores spread all over one Bide of his face. We consulted a physician and tried his medicine, and in a week the sore was gone. But to my surprise in two weeks more another scrofulous looking sore appeared on baby's arm. It grew worse and worse, and when he was three months old, I began giving him Hood's Sarsaparilla. I also took Hood's Sarsaparilla, and before the first bottle •was finished, the sores were well and have never returned. He is now touryeara.old, but he has never bad any sign of those scrofulous sores since he was cored by Hood's Sargaparilli., for which I feel very grateful. My boy owes his good health and smooth, fair skin to this great medicine." MKS. 8. S. WKOTES, •Ssgning- ton, Delaware.
