In its early days tho postal service
was soir-supporting. For 30 years, from
1780 to 1810, it fnilod only onco to yiold
an annual profit, but in rocont yoars, al
most without oxcoptlon, thore hns been
a deficit. So long ns tho deficit amount
ed to only a fow million dollars, and did
not increaso in proportion to tho growth
of the sorvlco, it attracted little atten

In thoso two items nlono tho postal

Tho most striking fact disclosed by
recent investigations is tho tremendous

While this class of mail provides a rev-
onuo of littlo moro than 1 cent a pound,
tno cost to tno government for its hand
ling and transportation nveragos 0.23
