As Soon as Citizens Receive
Copies, Arrest for Violations
Will Be Made.
Although the new traffic resulattor.s
became effective yesterdaj, no effort
"Will be made by the police to enforce
them rlslJiy until the public has had
an opportunity to become familiar with
the many novel provisions.
Major Sylvester said jestcrday that,
as soon as the regulations are forward
ed to the Police Department by the Com
missioners, so that copies can be Is
sued to the citizens, a more exacting
course Trill be pursued and arrests
made for violations. During the next
few days the police will devote their
efforts in endeavoring to educate the
drivers of vehicles to conform with the
regulations, but any driver who direct

Takes Salary to Buy Brooms to
Clean Office, So Grass Val
ley, Cal., Woman Quits.
While the Democrats are raiding the
Pie-counter, and those who rode the
crest of Democratic victory last fall
are searching- the horizon and nosing
out every trail to discover jobs for the
faithful, down at Rough and Ready, in
Grass Valley. Cal.. Mrs. Alice Bennett,
postmistress, is wondering how she can
get ride of the postoffice at that place.
For years she has been handing out
letters and papers to patrons of the of
fice, but now. owing to the dearth of
stamp cancellations, there is barely
enough compensation to buy brooms to
keep the office clean. Several weeks
ago Mrs- Bennett filed her resignation
with the Postoffice Department. It has
gone through various offices to Post
master General Hitchcock, and prob
ably will eventually be put up to Fourth
Assistant Postmaster General Degraw
No action has been taken upon it. and
Mrs. Bennett is compelled to hold on
until she is relieved. Tnere is nobody
In that vicinity who wants the rebponsi
biilty and the emoluments, and as a re
sult the office is going begging.
It Is probable that a rural route will
eventually be established to take the
place of this office. Such a route prob
ably will take in Rough and Ready,
Penn Valley. Pleasant Valley, and the
