It appear from the comprehensive plans ti.at Mr. Hitchcock has outlined to tt e President that hes has been hard at work fcome time on detaU for a wid - siread reform, and It ouht to bo said tt.at the President not oniy Is heattlly In accord with , thes "pia r.n - 't the postmaster - general, - but la perfectly satisfied with tne. rnnnner In which the latter haa conducted the affairs of his department.

Indeed, profitable. The pottnnMer - general has summoned to WsshlnkUon from every section of the country, tho experts 'In the registry end of the powtal service who have been on vacation, and they are hard at work, going Into every detail of this branch with a view to eugiit - stln;? economy and reform wherever practicable.

Pro - tone, .for the building up of weight and lost n - rve force. It acted more like a miraclfl than a medicine. said a well known gentleman yesterday in Fpeaking of the revolution that had taken place l - .t his condition. "I began to think that thT? was nothing on earth that could make in fat. I tried tonics, digestives, heavy eating, diets, milk, beer, and al - moft everything else you could think of. which a money order may b cashed. But one "advice" 1 sent out with each order tor New York, and that goes to the general .poatomce. regardless of the branch ft which the order may be presented and paid. The postmaster - general will return to Washington In a day or two, and at the tegtnnlng of the week will start on a trip went to visit the big cities and Inspect the postomces with a view to their betterment. Mr. Hitchcock will meet the President In Arizona and Journey with him as far as Kl Paso to he present at the meeting between President Taft and President Diaz, of Mexico. - One of the chief reasons for the deficit In the registry bureau Is the franking privilege, which is the subject of considerable abuse, and It Is possible that the whole system of franking may come under tnvetlgation and be made the' subject of drastic reform. - ..

It Is believed the duty of the officer Is to visit the nolle In each of the places that the President la scheduled to stop, Inquire Into their arrangements, see that plans are being made to have the presidential party looked after as much for their comfort as for their safety. Inspect the hotels, look over the plans of the reception committee.' designate the places that must be roped off when the President arrives and generally give an eye to every detail In order that the machine may move smoothly when the day arrives. The officer has full authority to make any changes In police arrangements that he thinks necessary or desirable,, and to this extent supersedes for the time being the police chief In the city where he orders changes mad. . - FIRE AND WAtER DAMAGE : fTHREE - STORY DWELLING Stubborn Blaze Is Discovered In the Attic of an Apartment ' ' ' '; House. - There was plenty of excitement at a neighborhood fire., at' 1U and 113, West North street shortly before noon,, to - day, when a large three - story double frame house caught fire In the attic. The two sides were occupied by the families of Mrs. Emma Hagerty and John Westfleld. respectively. Even the firemen were unable to ascertain In which side of the structure the fire started. When the fire was discovered the entire top of the building was a mass of flames and the occupants thought the'r homes were doomed to destruction. ; Neighbors assisted In . carrying valuables Into the street, while the firemen got busy. Because of the hight of the building the firemen had to use ladders. rieveral water lines were used and after the fire was out tho' occupants found their furniture on the second and third floors soaked. The houne was damaged to the extent of about $2,000. with an additional los of about $W0 on the furnishings.. The building is owned by V. E. Sickles. BILLS FOR PLAYGROUNDS.

And in the front of It was a note to the bride In greeting, telling all about the leaving of the old home for the new and congratulating her on her happiness. Just like the other notes she received. Of course, you remember it. Well. Page 23 haa never been paid for. This fact was made known today In Justice of the Peace Stout's court, when the GUseo company brought suit against the Grand Laundry Company for $Ua. in payment for a page of advertising in 2,733 cook books which had been given out with marriage licenses issued in Marlon county during the year ending June 30. Complaint and Defense. Tua" complaint alleges that . when the Indiana Publishing Company started to publish the cook book. It obtained a written contract from the Grand Laundry Company, a corporation composed . of William D. Pratt, Homer E. Slone. Thomas 11. Slone and Solon E. Burke, for placing an ad in the book, and that It was to be the only laundry firm represented In the book. The charge was to be cents for each copy given out by the county clerk to those applying for man - lag - licenses living In Indianapolis. The signed statement of Leonard M. Quijl and his clerk. William E. Bemer. Bhows that in the year ending June 30r 1909.' 2,733 licenses were Issued, of which 2,572 were residents of Indianapolis. There was then due 1128.60. The defense says ths book was represented as! being an embossed book with not less than three hundred pages, and that the paper waa to be of fine quality. It avers that the Glisco company succeeded the Indiana Publishing Company, and that the book Is not embossed. Is of an Inferior quality of paper, has less than one - half the number of names of advertisers that were to be represented, and "is not an attractive piece of workmanship as would likely be retained by a housewife." For these reasons payment has been refused. - Waiting for Governor.

It is the wish of the commission that tl Oovsrnor attend the ceremonies, aa he has not yet visited the site of tha institution. The Qovttrnor will be asked te make a short address on the occasion. NO ADMISSION ON SUNDAY. State Fair Not Open to the Public Until Monday. The entire membership of the . slate board of agriculture, which, has charge of the state fair, reported for their annual duty today, and at once began sorting admission tickets and attending to the wants of the exhibitors at the state fair ground, which was opened to exhibitors today. . . t . The ground will not be thrown 'open to the public until Monday morning. "Not one will be admitted Sunday," said Secretary Charles Downing, "but I fear we will have the ssme clamor for admission, that we always have on the Sunday preceding the. fair.' It apparently makes no difference how great trouble we take to let it be known that the ground will not be open on that day, there ere always about five thousand people who think that the order does not apply to them, and line up at the gates to be let - In. However, no person who Is not an exhibitor st the fair or an official will be admitted until Monday morning." J ACTS LIKE MAGIC TIRED, ACHING FEET Instantly Relieved and Tenderness Quickly Cared.
