The question of free deliver? of
rLi.il has received such attention
laLt the Poatoffice Department de
(.tr&uned to make some experimental
tests. Hon. Kerr Craig, being en

ri;ii at $175 each who ' consume
:ibout four hours each day in de
li faring the mail.
A few neighbors generally cluster
together and have their mail left at
the house of the one agreed upon.
If there is a crank out of cog with
hie neighbors they try to suit his
whims and leave his mail at his own
houde. JNo one's mail is delivered
to him if he does not want the con
Ysnici'ce. Post Master Deacon, who
is in hearty sympathy with the
movement, has added greatly to
i4lii2 ae experiment a satisfac
tory teat and' is of the opinion that
the increase in the amount of busi
ness done thrc the mails will
compensate for the expenses.
Thi,-, !oo, looks like a long stride
but when we look back a few years
fid dse how we have come up from
-aome half dczsn postoflices in the
county with mail ence a week to
a'.o"' three times that number with
daily, tri-weekly kLd semiweekly
mails, the leap will not look so
.great after all and if it should not
pay in postage it might and proba

The Preass Visitor thinks that the
nexs legislature will surely provide
for four months school. .That will
be well enough as far as it , goes but
if they are going to do anything for
the schools it is to be hoped they
will return to that better '"ipy of
having the State board to select the
books to be used and have some uni
formity. Ateacher .wiil dq.ta. much work
