In view of this he thought the suggestion to ask for a free street delivery of mail a good one. It would relieve the pre- sent suggestion by taking 'away prob- ably three-fourths of the congestion. Box holders at present, have no diffi- culty in getting their mail, but the difficulty is with the general public, and the new comers especially who have to wait. This gives them a wrong impression of the city and is a bad thing.

Then. place the forefinger in the hole over the first'figure of the number desired, pull the dial right down till it stops, then release it un- til it swings back to its original po- sition. It is very important that it be pulled right hown and allowed to go back.
