Another postmark question: I don't know which year it is (perhaps 1918, 1928?).

Kikungshan

It's most probably written vertically, right to left:

七年八月十一 Year 7, Month 8, 11(th day). 1938/8/11 (Year 1 is 1932).

No idea what the 九/9 at the end stands for.

EDIT

As Wang Dingwei says, Henan wasn't part of Manchukuo. So year 7 is probably 1918. 紀元轉換

Guessing here: 18th January 1941, that is Manchuguo year 9 in Jigongshan, occupied Henan.
