GLADSTONE VEINiTO SI SMOKES CIGARETTES

(From Saturday's Daily.)
So far as the Prescott postoffice
j is to be considered in the large
amount of business transacted in the
first two days of operation of the
new parcels post law, the move
raent is decidedly popular.
Postmaster Smith stated yesterday
that it was also proving to be at
tended with many humorous con
ceptions of the new law and until
the machinery gets to moving with
a cle;. understanding from the pub
lic at large, the postal carrying busi
ness will be bothered with patrons
attempting to send young quartz
mills through the mails or to make
a shipment of livestock by that me
thod. During the two days of the new
law, much business has been trans
acted. One of the amusing con
signments was the sending to Hill
side station of a two-pound package
containing mutton chops, for a min
er located near-by in the hills. Lo
cal clothes cleaners received yester
day several suits of old clothes to
be put in condition for next Sunday
afternoon, presumably to attend di
vine services. A bundle of washing
was received from a mining camp
to the south of this city, which
weighed within the limit of the dead
mark of eleven pounds. A pair of
all wrapped up, which will be placed
in his mail box on the road three
miles from the camp. He'll get the
goods on time, also, as he issued ex
plicit instructions for delivery and
his faithful wife complied.
Postmaster Smith wishes the pub
lic to understand that all parcels
post matter must not be sealed and
that each package must be open for
inspection. The parcels postage
stamps must invariably be used, oth
erwise the package will not be sent
out of the office. Ignorance of this
rule is responsible for several pack
ages being held at the office and
will not be delivered under any cir
cumstances. Many also infer that
the local rate extends to Groom
Creek and other nearby postoffices
or within the limit of fifty miles,
which is erroneous. Groom Creek
is in the first zone, and the postage
applies accordingly. The local rate
embraces only points within the in
corporated limits of this city. Let

mitting packages under the parcels
