IBOUBE, Reporter. e - Express Office. For 27 years the Adams Express office at this place was in charge ol G. C. Gutelius. Last week it was moved to the railroad deiHlt, We understand that this move wus made ow ing to some differences ol opinion in regard to remuneration, We do not know anything about this mat ter, but we do know that 90 per cent, of the business done ill 1 1 j i office has been done by the people ol Mid dleburg and the moving ol the office a distance of half u mile from them is a gross injustice to the patrons ol the Express Company. The Ex press packages addressed to the peo ple of tow n w ere delivered and now to move the office hall a mile away thus compelling people to walk that distance for their express packages is uncalled for and unless the mat ter is promptly changed, a decided tailing oil in patronage will result.
