A lady happened to come after me, and, placing her penny in the slot, received a stamp. I thought to myself " I'll try again," hut still no stamp. By this time, not being successful with the stamps, I tried the post card machine, with tho same reMilt. i lost my penny, and had to walk home. I am not tho 'first to be had with these things.
