With the present average density of popula- tion in Canada and the present fi- nancial resources of the country, free rural delivery on the basis of the system in the United States is ab- solutely out of the question.

However, when they reached the business block opposite the ceme- tery they discovered that the general store owned by Bonamico was on fire.
