This nnnouncemei t followed closely

parcel post shipments of butter. c:gs,
poultry, vegetables and fruit. At first

country. The scheme will be Inaugu
rated first at Boston, Atlanta, St. Tiuls,
San Francisco, Washington, Ihtltlmoro,
Detroit, Lacrosse, Wis.; Lynn, Mnss.,
and Hock Island, III.
Postmasters Will Receive Orders.
The postmasters of these points have
been directed to receive tho names of
persons willing to supply farm produce
In retail quantities by parcel post
Printed lists of their names, showing
In each case the kinds nnd quantities
of commodities avnllnble. will be pre
pared from tlmo to time for distribu
tion to city nnd town patrons who wish
to buy farm produce direct.
Housewives need have no hesitancy
In ordering their goods direct, from the
producer, in tho eyes of tho postal of
ttclals, who cite the fraud laws as n
guarantee. Complnlnts of swindling
would be Investigated immediately by
the postotllce Inspectors, nnd the pro
ducer, if guilty, would bo punished.
This scheme will eliminate the mid
dlemen, often two or three for n sin
plo article, it Is said, and thus enable
tho purchaser to buy much more
cheaply. Government experts, after
recent Investigations, held that tho
middlemen nisj tho ones who nro keep
ing the prices of foodstuffs so high.
No More Going to Market.
"By tho use of the printed lists of
producers the city consumer will bo
able to get in touch with a fnrmer
who will fill hla weekly orders for but
ter nnd eggs and other farm produce,"
snld Daniel C. Itoper, first nsslstnnt
postmaster general, "The consumer
will receive the produco fresh from the
country, nnd the personnl relationship
established will no doubt tend to Im
prove the quality. Tho farmer will bo
relieved of carrying his produco to
market, ns the rural carrier will make
daily collections at tho farmer's own
"The point has been raised that dif
ficulty will bo experienced In the re
turn of hampers and other containers.
This problem does not nppcar to me to
bo dllllcult of solution. The fnrmer
may use Inexpensive hampers whose
value would not warrant their return,
or ho may uso the higher grade ham
pers., for which he may include nn ad
ditional charge to bo credited to tho
consumer upon tho return of the ham
per by parcel tost.
"Tho postmaster general has the firm
conviction that this plan Is the one
thing necessary to enable the people
of thbi country to enjoy tho iwtentlal
benefits of the parcel post No one
tins ever questioned the possibility of
reducing the cost of living by estab
lishing direct relatlous between the
ultimate consumer and the original
Gjntlemen of Leisure.

The Incident Took the Fright Out of

An old soldier, telling how nervous

could hear stifled noises from the
depths of the pocket that made mo
suspicious. Tho lieutenant heard them,
too, for twice ,ho turned round nnd
looked fierce enough to eat us.
"By nnd by, when Piper was off his
guard, the thing poked Its. bead out
far enough to screech: 'Cut! Cu'
riper he squelched the second cuf

lieutenant henrd something and ho
looked round'and shouted, 'Silence In

"The men near Piper snickered, but
nothing more happened till tho order

to the right shoulder. Then, of course.

help bearing that, and nnturally ho
looked baclt to see what the row was,
und when he saw what had happened
ho sung out nt the top of his voice:
" 'Corporal Davis, take three men
nnd bring back that deserter!'

good laugh when .Plpcr put bis hand.
