Preparation for Christmas Mailing.
All parcels must be securely wrap-
ped or packed in order to reach their
destination in good condition. In
wrapping ordinary parcels strong pa-
per and heavy twine should be used.
Articles easily broken or crushed
must be crated or securely wrapped.
Use liberal quantities of excelsior, or
like material in, around, and between
the articles and the outside container.
Glassware, fragile toys, crockery
must be packed so as to prevent the
escape of particles or pieces if broken
Articles likely to spoil within the
time reasonably required for trans-
portation and delivery will not be ac-
cepted for mailng. Wrap or pack
carefully, according to contents, and
plainly mark all such parcels “perish-
able.” Use special-delivery stamps to
expedite delivery. :
Addresses should be complete, with
house number and name of street,
postoffice box or rural route number,
and typed or written plainly in ink. A
return card should be placed in the
upper left hand corner of every piece
of mail. If a tag is used, the address
and return card should also be written
on the wrapper for use if tag is lost,
and a copy of the address should be
inclosed inside the parcel.
Postage must be fully prepaid on all
mail. Affix the required amount of
postage in the upper right hand cor-
ner. Full information concerning
postage rates can be obtained at the
parcel post or stamp window.
Christmas gifts and cards addressed
to points within one day’s travel
should be mailed not later than De-
cember 20; within two days’ travel
not later than December 18, within
three days’ travel, not later than De-
cember 16; for more distant points,
not later than December 14. Parcels
and cards for local delivery should be
mailed not later than December 22.
Parcels and envelopes may be in-
dorsed “Please do not open until
The early mailing of Christmas
cards is just as important as parcels.
Millions of these cards, separate and
in envelopes, are mailed each Christ-
mas. Consequently, great congestion
and delay occurs in large postoffices,
where they are all mailed within a day
or two of Christmas. Therefore, if
you want your Christmas greetings to
reach your relatives and friends on or
before Christmas day, follow the in-
structions in the preceding paragraph
relative to mailing early and be cer-
tain of delivery before Christmas.
Christmas stamps or stickers of any
character must not be placed on the
address side of mail matter. Pasters
or stickers resembling postage stamps
are not permissible on mail matter.
In using Christmas stickers they
should be so placed as not to seal the

——The other day, as a Simplex
race-about went spinning through a
Jersey town, noted for the severity of
its speed limitations, two constables
watched it disappear in a cloud of
dust down the road. Said one to the
other, “Did ye git her number, Si?”
“No,” replied the other, “she was too

——While a certain association of
Southern business men was in session
a number of the members went to in-
spect a cotton-mill. They were in the
card-room when the whistle blew for
noon, and saw the card-room boys put
up their work as if by magic, and dis-
appear. “Do all the boys drop their
tools the instant the whistle blows?”
asked one of the visitors. “No, not
all,” said the foreman, grimly. “The
more orderly have their tools all put
away before that time.”—Harper’s

She writes: “I hated cooking be-
cause all I ate turned sour and formed
gas. I drank hot water and olive oil
by the galion. Nothing helped until
I used Adlerika.” Most medicines act
only on lower bowel but Adlerika acts
on BOTH upper and lower bowel and
removes all gas and poisons. Excel-
lent for obstinate constipation. Helps
any case gas on the stomach in TEN

into newly developed areas.
Fifteen thousand miles of Bell pole lines are used for
telephone service in this state. A thousand miles are added
Today there is nearly three and one half million miles of
wire used in Pennsylvania's Bell Telephone service. Abous
600,000 miles of new wire is being added to the Bell Sys-
ania this year, some underground, some
aerial and most of it sn cables.
S has been said before, the war-time demand
for telephone service, particularly in the
cities of size, came very close to swamping this
company. It failed to, but it came close!
In less than a year our reserves of plant were ex-
hausted, and it became a scramble to keep pace
with a rush demand that seemed endless. It was
an unfavorable time for expansion, but it had to
1924 has been a catch-up year, and fine progress
has been made.
December 31 will see 61,500 more telephones
in service than at the beginning of the year; wire
mileage will have increased from 2,800,000 to
3,400,000 miles, and switchboard positions from
4,600 to 6,000.
The year will have seen 13 new buildings
and 10 major building additions completed. 6
new and additional structures will have pro-
gressed toward the completion point, and 2
more will have been started.
We have one foot out of the woods, and the rest
seems to be a certainty for 1925. There are a few
points where facilities are “tight’’—where major
construction has not yet progressed to the stage
where all of the varied demand can be met.
But it has been a very satisfactory year in this re-
spect, to us and to our patrons.
