McKinley Postal Cards Soon to Be Issued

     McKinley postal cards will soon be issued by the postoffice department, Assistant Postmaster General Madden having decided that cards bearing the profile of the late President shall be printed under the new contract shortly after Dec. 1. Around the design will be the name of “McKinley,” the date of his birth and of his death, as well as the words “Series 1901.” The words “U. S. Postal Card” will appear more toward the center of the card, [104][105] so as to make sufficient room above these words for the postmark, which heretofore was almost illegible on account of being impressed across the words “U. S. Postal Card.” This space will, on the new cards, be above the words “U. S. Postal Card,” and the words “The space above is reserved for postmark” will appear. Below will be the sentence “The space below is for the address only.”
