Many a Christmas package
nevor gets through the mails.
The package is often broken,
the contents scattered and some
one is disappointed. Patrons of
tho post office should bear in
mind that an address is written
for the purpose of being read.
If you can not writo so that you
can read it yourself how do you
expect tho pos' master to read
it? It is bad enough at the best,
and it would seem from the ndi
dresses on most packages that
every body went to a different
writing school. Tie your pack
ages to that thoy can be
thrown tho length of a car, or
handled by hundreds of hands
and still remain intact. All of
tho postal clerks in the United
States do not know you or your
packages, and thoy are working
