The recent nrder for a two-cent

to an announcement by postal au
T. 1.. (ireen, local postmaster,
stated that any letter which is sent
to any person getting his mail at
the local post office, either in box,
by carrier or rural carrier, would be
carried for. two cents. Any mail
going from the local post officer. 'and
through another post 'office will have
to have the usual three-cent postage.
It is the belief of postal authorities
that this new rate, will increase post
age revenue, and then, too, the prin

that a letter beinb delivered, to a
neighbor should cost as much as one
mailed to a city- thousands of miles

before: the budget will be complete,

nounced. One member of the board stated
that the coming year will be the great
