THE LARGEST OF ALL.
The News and Observer notes
that the second-class mail matter
going through the Raleigh post
office amounted within the last
year to 4 '',;. 491 pounds for which
the office collected 4,334.91.
Tii ere are seventeen publications
in the city, but the News and
Observer Company sends out a
little- more than half of the second-class
matter and pays into
the po.-ioffice more than half of
the luii ,iount for such matter.
We -annot agree with much of
the sentiments of the News and
Observer, but wc envy it for the
indomitable push and enterprise
which keeps it in the lead in cir-
