Can Make Their Own Mail Boxes.
Washington, July 1.-From recent
discussion hau upon tho subject, and
statements which have appeared in the
public press relative to the amendment
which was proposed in the Senate to
the hill making appropriation tot tho
service ot tho poetollice department for
the fiscal year ending June HO, 1007,
wherein it is proposed that patrons of
rural delivery could make their own
i ural mail boxes of metal or of wood,
it would seem that there is a general
misunderstanding concerning the re
quirements of tho postoilico depart
ment applicable to rural delivery
The order of the Postmaster General
now in force, whicii requires patrons
of rum i delivery to supply themselves
with suitable boxes, provides that all
rural mail boxes shall bo made ol' gal
vanized tdicet iron or steel, of certain
designated thicknesses tor boxes ot' va
rious sizes and styles, the minimum
hizo of box being indicated, the boxes
to bo made iu workman-like manner
and weather proof, and to be submit
ted to a division superintendent of
rural delivery or postoflice inspector in
charge for examination for approval.
Inqniry at tho department developed
tho tuot that ander the provisions of
this order patrons of the service may
make boxes for their own use, provided
such boxes conform to tho required
specifications and aro submitted for
examination and approval.
The allegations that there is a mo
nopoly in the manufacture and the Bale
ot boxes which have boen approved for
use on rural roates is not founded on
fact, as tho Postmaster General has
approved for 109 individuals and firms
manufacturing boxes, 200 different
styles of boxes, varying in price from
50 cents to $4 each, tho average price
being about 31 each, and there is great
competition among manufacturers for
LoDg before the matter was taken np
by Congress, and as far back as the
early part of March, 1000, the depart
ment hae had under consideration the
matter of amplifying and amend- j
ing tho previous order, which
had been issued pertaining to
tho manufacture of rural mail boxeB,
so that any person who desired could
make or have made for bis individual
use & box conforming to the require
ments by submitting the plan for auch
box ant*, sample of material of which it
ia to be constructed or the box itself to
the postmaster at a poBtoffice located
at a county sent for approval, and if
the box should be fonnd to conform to
the specifications of the department
the owner would be authorized to im
print on the box the words: "Ap
proved by the Postmaster General."
By thia pinn the exponsa heretofore
entailed upon the maker of an indi vid.
ual box in forwarding a rural mail box
to a division superintendent of rural
delivery or postoflice inspector in
charge for examination and approval,
will be obviated.
It is proposed to issue an amenda
tory order embodying these sugges
tions within a few days. It should be
stated, however, that patrons who
avail themselves of the privilege of
making their own boxes, or having
same made to order, must conform to
the specifications as to material, size
and manner of construction required
in the original order.-News and Cou

A Leiter From a Former Citizen of An*
Safford, Arizona, Jane 28,1000.
Mr. Editor: For some reason The
Intelligencer has not been reaching
me recently. . I miss it so much. It is
like a letter from many friends (ytiu
and your correspondents). Please
have it mailed to me at Safford, Ari
zona. I am quite well-indeed I never
enjoyed better health.
1 am '.anxious to ree the friends
of Temperance succeed in the ap
proaching election. The dear old
State baa been disgraced hythe dis
pensaries and . olncials. Let the
watchword among Christians and all
those who love the State be "down
with the di sp en Bar i ea." Sorely no
Christian will vote for euch a disgrac
ing system. I lovo the old State, and
all L*>r interests are dear to me. I
long to see her shiite off thia octopus.
It can be done, but it takes men with
moral courage to do it. I ehnll watch
the light from my WeBtern home, and
pray for the succe&s of those who are
working for home and State. The
fight will be a bard one, but that will
only make the victory greater. The
125,000 Baptiste ought to be a great
factor in this fight for purity and
righteousness. Let every woman ex
en her influence against these dene
of vice net for-tho downfall Of her
husband and sons.

G.- w; Baker, who ow?5 zou? ?tue?

Gaffney, last year rented two acree
from a neighbor and went to work and
from theae six acree, after snpp?y?jg
bia rather large family bountifully
from his farm, he auld from ono and
two-third acres 840 bushels of sweet
Iiotatoee for $273. From two acres of
and in cotton, he sold $98 worth and
from his snap bean patch he sold ??35
worth of beans making a total of $415
in cash received for tbe surplus pro
ducts made on this small farm.
Besides the above, Mr, Baker made
rj0 bvshelsof corn and killed 500 pounds
of pork, which ?o grew at home and
fattened with the prod act s of his farm.
During last year Mr. Baker worked
much away from home. Among
other things, he earned enough by
work to pay for a one-horse wagon
and mule, with wbich he made his
crop. We had often heard about Mr.
Baker's crop, and a few days ago we
asked him about it. The above facts
were obtained from him, and no one
who knows him will doubt any state

anything else.-Cherokee News.
