The receipts of the 'Aun Arbor post office for November for starups, postal cards, euvelopcs and periĆ³dica! postage wa9 $3,419.02. This is 1213.06 less than it was in November last year, but as there were some extraordiiiary sales in November of last year whicli probably reduced the December sales of that year slightly, it isj probable that this loss will be more than made up this month. The sales of October this year were about $8 more than the sales of October last year. The sales last mouth were divided as follows : Ordinary stamps $414.37, Omaha stamps 2,309.47, postal cards $196.39, envelopes 1385.85, periĆ³dica! and newspaper postage $1 12.94.
