Under da to of Sept. 10th there
was Issued from the ofllco of tbo
lion. Second Assistant PostmaBter
Oeneroi, Washington, D. 0., n
general advertisement inviting pro
posals for carrying the mails on all
the etar routes in the fourth con
tract section, including all states
and territories west of the Missis
sippi river, except Miunesoto,
Iowa and Missouri, for n term of
four years, becinninc July let.

Vfcrtiscinent mil be received at
the oilice of the Hun. Second As
sistant until Deo. 3rd next

could give a satisfactoiy bond, re

sided. Tho contracts let undet
advertisement referred to above,
however, will be limited to those
persons who will agree to reside
on or contiguous to the routes up
on which (ho service is to be per
formed aud to givo their personal
supervision to the same.
Under the old system, some of
the professional contractors had
hundreds and eveiythousands of
contracts. Thoy would then sub.
let them (0 sotrio one on or con
tiguous to the route and in that
way Oi locnl man wii deprived of
full reii.uiieralion for the service
render to (he department. That
will no-be changta) the local
man gelling Iho lull amount.
This is also the first general ad
vertisement for the states men
tioned above which has incorpor
ated the feature ol delivering tho
mail into boxes along Iho lines of
the star routes. It ii proposed
under present advertistuont, in
addition to carrying the mails to
the various post offices on the star
routes covered by this advertise
ment, that thq carrier on each
route, -sue"pt where otherwise
specifically slated, will also bo re
quired to deliver mail into all
buxes and hang small bags or
satchels, contnining mail, on cranes
or posts erected along the route
under certain conditions, which
are fu)ly eel forth in the advertise
ment and which will givo persons
living on the line of these star
routes much better eervico than
they have had heretofore. In
fad, it is hopod that such service
will be almost equally as satisfac
tory as rural free delivery. It will
also reach territory where, on no
count of sparse settlement, it
would be impracticable to estab.
lieh rural free delivery.
A copy of the advertisement for
each stale and territory will be
sent to every postmaster in that
state or territory and enclosed
therein will be a letter of instruc
tions to the postmaster to bring
tho matter to the attention of per
suns likely to bid on those routes
which touch his office. The ad
vertisement will bo posted in the
postoffice and every effort will bo
made to inform every person who
is interested and who would be
likely to bid,
There will also be a number of
assistant superintendents assigned
to this special work. Four will
bu assigned to duty in this (the
eleventh) division, as follows:
more Important routes, whether
notion of others or not.
The department will msho every
effort possible to insure tho suc
cess of this new departuro by en
deavoring to fully instruct all of
mono Upon whom its success de
pends. Under the same date an adver
tisement was issued for screen
wogon service in a number of the
more important cities and the as.'
siBtant superintendents and others'
will bo expected to make the same
effort to givo publicity to that ad
vertisement and lo interview local
deliverymen, expressmen and oth
e.s In position to bid, in order that
the screen wagon service, as well
as the star roule service, may bo
placed on a far belter fooling than
Contraols foi screen wagon ser
ioe have been form e rly let to pro
fessional contractors, eamo as star
route contracts, and it ie believed
that the proposed change will riot
only givo us far belter eeryico in
both lines, but will also leave more
money with the local people-
Any perton desiring to bid
either on star roulo or screon
wagon service can obtain all the
information he desires by apply
ing to his postmaster for blanks,
etc. Ho can also inform himself
from tho pamphlet advertisement
as to just what amounts are now
being paid contractors in each case

f'lrTf there is a big well from
which s stream ol water runs away
down the street all the time. It
is about four inches deep and the
well from which it comes is as
large as a bucket. It is a great
thing for that town, for there have
been times in Vinita, and not so
very long ago, that water famines
prevailed until the peoplo were
nearly wild for a place to get sup.
plies. They have now seven ol
those wells there, und all of them
are nearly as big as the one in the
square The water from them is
aa clear as crystal, but it has a lit
tle sulphur taste. Outside of that
it is fine. Even during those hot
test days up there since the wells
were Bunk a person could drink si
much of that water as they could
hold and there would be no bad
effects. They have rigged up
three bathing pooh there now;
one of them is forty by one hun
