Grand Old Man Morrill - the oldest man in years as well as congressional service atnong the American statesmen of the age- has just had his credentials presented to the senate for a sixth consecutive term. This is an honor never achieved by any otlier man. Benton, the only other man who completed flve consecutive terms in the Senate, was defeated when seeking a sixth election, although he went to the house for a term two years later. Sherman has exceeded Morrill two years in aggregate length of time in the senate but his service has not been continuous. It was broken near the middle by his entrance into the cabinet during the Hayes administration. On Mareta 4, when Morrill flnished thirty years in the senate, he completed forty-two years of service in congress. On ttie first day of July next the bill premittiug the printing and use of private mailing cards with a one cent stamp aflixed will go into eiïect. The progressive business man will have liis own adertisement conspicuously displayed, and the printingof inillions of cards will make work for the printer. The bill is approved by the postoffice department, as it tends to popularize postal cards, besides effecting a sa vin f to the government of the cüfference between the cost of the cards and the stampa. -
