A BIG REDUCTION IN THE INTERSTATE EXPRESS RATES New interstate express rates which will result in a reduction of about thirty per cent from the old rate are now in effect at the local Wells-Fargo office. A reduction of nearly thirty per cent is made in first class rates under the new schdule and about thirty-two per cent in second class rates. The reduction in rates on second class mater is of decided importance to local shippers as fruits, vegetables and other food products which constitute a large percentage of local shipments received in Miami, come under that class. Under the new schedule each pound increase iu weight means a corresponding increase in the cost of the shipment. Under the old tariff a flat rate was charged up to a certain weight. For example the same rate applied to two articles, one weighing twelve pounds and the other twenty. For a shipment weigh ing over twenty pounds there was a decided increase in the rate, which applied to all shipments weighing over twenty pounds and less than thirty. Under the new schedule the exact weight of each shipment is determined and the tariff charged on each pound. The reductions in rates from Miami to various pointB in the state are shown In the following table: MIAMI TO— New Rates Old Rates First Second First Second •Johnson relieved Rams-y in 1st •♦Baroldy batted for Boland 9th.

In that instance they succeeded in killing the snake, but in the case of the snake which nipped Mr. Braley the reptile succeeded in making bis escape.
