If you fail to receive any number of this paper, you may conclude that the United States Post Office has decided that it is not fit for you to read. The Federal Authorities are most considerate in this respect. They are ever watchful over your morals, and are ever ready to interfere with any mail that might tend to corrupt them. We suggest that all readers write to the Postmaster General and express appreciation for the kindly interest taken by the Post Office in keeping you pure and virtuous by prohibiting you from reading any matter that is adulterated with the truth. Our benign Government is certain that the truth is not only poisonous but obscene.
