Three Mall Boxes Are Being Placed at
The lor al postofflce officials recently
received a half dozen new mall boxes.
Workmen today erected threoof them
at convenient points on Commercial
street. One was placed a.t the corner
of Ilarrlit & Lawrence grocery estab
lishment, another at the Bush bank
corner and a third on Commercial
street between Court and State streets
In front of the Rotan furniture
store. These new boxes were ordered
immediately after tho removal of the
postofflce to Its present quarters, but
owing to a delay at he&dquarters, they
did not arrive until this week. Tho
boxes will be greatly appreciated by
the General public and more especially
will the one at the corner of Ferry
and Commercial streets for heretofore

The Journal has agitated the
need of having a mail box established
jnthlspa;tof tho city since the re
moval of the postofflce and now re
jolces with the business men and res
idents of this section of the city in
realizing the establishment of the
same. Tho throo remaining boxes
will bo erected when requested and at
points that will accommodate the
greatest number of residents.
Tho "rural mail delivery" that was
so widely advertised by tho mourning
contemporary, does not seem to ma
terialize very rapidly. No wonder, so
much publicity from such a source
would kill almost any enterprise.
Howeyer the local officials announce
that they have been officially informed
by the proper official that tho project
is under consideration, and the terrii
tory has been looked over. It is
hoped the rural mail delivery system
may be established as our mail deliv
ery will be greatly f aclllta ted thereby.
