Will Get Mail This Afternoon

The Commercial Club sent a
telegram to Senator Chamberlain
on Wednesday and it brought im

that arrangements have been
made to secure the mail over

April when a regular contract is
to begin at the old schedule.
This arrangement is better than
being without mail as we have

of the same length during .Janu
