P O. Box 650. Prescott, Ariz.
(From Sunday's Daily.)
That the parcels post law is pro
viding to be a most popular public
movement initiated in many years,
is reflected from the reports from
outside cities, and the splendid
showing made in three days of re
ceipts at the local postoffice, which
Postmaster Smifh stated yesterday
exceeded all anticipations in revenue
The people are beginning to "get
on" to the innovation and but few
are occasioning any trouble in plac
ing the right kind of postage on the
matter to be mailed, as well are they
heeding the legal requirements by
strictly obeying the general regula
Some of the receipts of yester
day were rather amusing. One re
sident of the Verde Valley sent in
large shipment of skunk hides,
that was very fresh judging from
the odor that permeated the build
ing. They went to the supervisor's
office in a jiffy. A resident of the
city receipted for a box of Salt
River valley eggs, laid the day be
fore they were mailed. Whether
they were hard boiled or not, was
not learned. It is undertsood that
eggs to go through the parcels post
routine must be cooked to a finish"
but this exaction is to be determin
ed later on advices from Washington.
A pair of overalls, two pair of
socks, a safely razor, shaving glass, a
jackknife, rmall looking glass, two
outside shirts, and other goods went
to a miner in the Kirkland country
yesterday that weighed seven pounds
and which cost 23 cents to mail. Six
aluminum pans of various sizes went
out to the eastern part of the coun
ty to a housewife, which weighed
less than four pounds and required
only 14 cents for postage.
One merchant of the city came
romping into the office and asked
the rate on a package, which Wells
Fargo & Co., demanded 75 cents for
sending to Jerome. The postal
scales were reached and the goods
weighed just an even 23 cents, so
on went the parcels post stamps and
the owner got what he wanted dur

Times Ocean Shore
A REVERIE OF THE CLOSING YEAR
Once on a time, sad, gloomy, fearful,
Musing I wandered, mute and tearful
Along Time's resounding ocean shore;
There I pondered, while there I wandered,
O'er many a golden hour I'd squandered,
Lost jewels! Will they return no more?
Oh! Have they fled for evermore?
Then too was mingled pain with pleasure,
As I strayed adown that sounding shore,
Dwelling with thoughtful lingering leisure
O'er the blessed joyful days of yore ;
Sorrowing o'er the hearts of treasure
Gone with those blissful days I adore,
Vanished! To return again no more?
Musing I wandered grieving, mourning,
At precious moments ne'er returning,
Sparkling drops gone rolling me before
In the gleaming waves, midst sullen roar;
Thus, I explaimed, with heart aburning,
What magian might! What men of lore!
What mystic power can time restore?
I had but just outspoke the sentence,
When, cmbit'ring my sad repentance,
Spoke a Voice from o'er the shining wave,
Reechoing from far distant shore,
Saying, "On thy heart this would I grave, ,
Time present is priceless golden store,
Once departing, 'twill return no more !"
"Angel!" spoke I, or whate'er thou be,
Hov'ring o'er Time's rolling relentless sea.
Where are the comrades of childhood's day
Those souls so generous, frank and free,
That swelled the chorus of youthful glee?
Will they come again no more for aye?
The Voice responded, "No more for aye!"
"Angel!" cried I, unsympathetic !
In voice and tone, sincere, pathetic,
Hearken to me, I beseech and pray!
Incline to hear, Oh ! I implore !
Recall life's rapturous vernal day,
And give me to quaff its bliss once more!
The Voice reanswered, "No, nevermore!"
-"Angel!" plead I, truly relentless!
Being pitiless and repentless!
By remembrance of enchanting scenes!
By those weird halcyon days of yore!
- Bring me the delight of boyhood's dreams !
O, that gladsome elysium restore!
The Voice still answered, "No, nevermore!"
"Angel!" most unmerciful! plead I,
Remorseless heartless Demon! said I,
By our sorrowful sad repentance,
By the misery of thy sentence,
Recall the unimproved days of yore!
Giving chance, thereby, good deeds to score!
The Voice still answered, "No, nevermore!"
Glorious memories of long ago
Warming the heart to a joyful glow,
You'll ever possess a lasting charm!
Ye days of jovial careless youth!
We're reckless, then, of the very truth,
That genuine joy our bosoms warm,
Happiness alloyed with no alarm.
And so, 'tis ever with Manhood's prime,
We reck not the worth of jeweled time,
Until Death knocks loudly at the door,
Then, forlorn and woeful to the last,
We linger o'er the returnless past,
And its precious, priceless loss deplore;
A "Starry Crown," lost forevermore!

Mr. Jordan was the choice of the
democracy of the District of Colum
bia for thc chairmanship and that
choice only needed the approval of
President-elect Wilson who was then
in Bermuda. For some reason the
president desired another chairman
and Mr. Jordan accepted thc chair
manship of the local committee.
Mr. Jordan who had been secre

American war as a member of the
Rough Riders. He has not since
resided in this city though he has
frequently revisited it. The only

Parcels Post Proves Popular.
The local postoffice is. obtaining
a great deal larger income from the
parcel post business than was at
first anticipated. It was thought that
for the first month or so the in
crease in business as a result of the
innovation would hardly be appreci
able, but this has proved to be a
mistake. Already the daily stamp
sales have increased more than $200
per day even though the new de
partment has not been operating for
a week. What the effect of it will
be when a year has passed is prob
lematical, but it is expected will
be using the parcel post as a means
of delivery of parcels all over the
state, thus controlling practically the
mail order business of the state and
making Phoenix a commercial center
twice as prominent as the city now
