post office the establishment of four free rural deliv ery routes in this county It is thought they will all be in operation within a month The Cad route is designated asNb theMercer route as No 2 tho Carbon and Mt Etna route as No 3 and the Iveyville route as No 4 John Lucas will carry the mail for No I Tip Lucas for 2 J IT Eldridge for No 3 and Harry Pickett for No 4 The compensation is SoOO per year The following information in regard to their duties and the service they will render will be interesting Each rural delivery will be a post ofliceon wheels The carriers will carry a supply of postage stamps postal cards stamped envelopes and money order blanks and if the patrons choose to make the car rier their agents by entrusting to them addressed and stamped envelopes for that purpose they can enclose the mon ey orders when issued at the poatollice in the envelopes so furnished them and deposit them in the mails The rate of postage for drop letters on these routes Is Uvci cents It is particularly desired by tho de partment that the boxes put up by the patrons of rural free delivery shall be of snch a character as to bo secure not onlyfrom tho weather but from niis chevious or malicious depredations The U S mail shoncl not be deposited in any but an appropriate receptacle properly lablled and protected Unless suitable boxes are supplied within a reasonable time mail will not be de livered It should be remembered that the de livery box of each farmer whether it be locked or not ia private and sacred and to even open one of them by an unauthorised person is a serious misde meanor which the government will vigorously follow up to the guilty party and severely punish No wooden box is a lit receptacle for mail All boxes must do oi metal at least 15 inches square and not less than 14 inches long There is no box rent to pay The only expense the patrons are to is that of buying boxes The poatollice depart ment pays the carviur v Rural free delivery is new to a large percentage of people so it will be well to withhold judgment as to its practic ability until becoming better acquain ted with its operations It has been in operation for three years and is proving a great success and is popular when over introduced Any farmer desiring mail on a route should place a suitable box on a post on the route over which thocarrier passes Those living off of tho direct route simply have to put a box on tho route A post standing about five feet out of the ground is the right height Those not desiring the service need not put up a box Boxes should have on them tho

par eels not suitable for mailing but they must not undertake to diatrsbute cir culars or other matter which would otherwiso pass through the mails un less such circulars are properly stamped Theregulations compel the carrier to make a charge for parcels carried or errands done but such charge miist be reasonable Patrons may also register valuable letters with the carrier who will issue a regular registry receipt to Shorn therefor but such letters jshould prepared anil directed bofore the carrier arrives As these carriers have a daily drive of about 30 miles with very many stops to make they cannot wait for letters or cards to be written Patrons are kindly requested lo endeavor to delay the carriers as tie as possible and to this end should a supply of stamps and envelopes on

put up a hard game and almost un il the end it looked as if tho result would be a tie They reported that one of their strongest men was laid up and while they put him in during the sec ondhalf he could not play his usual jame However they played Paullin Corning who was by all odds the best ground gainer on the team They are a fine lot of boys and their defeat by as strong an eleven as the high school has this year is no discredit to them In the first half neilher side scored and neither had much of an aJ vintage In the second half with abont ten minutes to play McAnley made a line run of about thirty yards but dropped the ball Corning held Lincoln for downs however and then put up a lino exhibition of ground gain ing and carried tho ball slowly but steadily toward the goal They crossed the line with little over a minute to spare Tho elTort to kick goal was un successful The line up of the high school team for todays game will be about the sairio as isgiven below High School
