The Rural Free Delivery Crisis.
A great deal of interest has beer
aroused in the rural districts of thE
southern states over the menace tc
' rural free deliverv involved in the
evident determination of the post
office department to cut out the
weaker routes-if they do not make a
business showing that meets the new
requirements of the department.
These new requirements seem to be
that the rural route must show a
minimum number of pieces of mail
handled in a quarter, failing in which,
it will be discontinued entirely or
consolidated with the nearest rural
route. During the past month two
rural routes in Upson county, Georgia,
which fell short of the test, were con
solidated. Since the first of the year
quite a number of mail routes in
southern states have been either dis
continued or consolidated with other
The Constitution has for some time
been giving editorial attention to this
unfortunate turn of affairs in the at
titude of the federal postoffice depart
ment toward the non-self-supporting
rural routes of the south, and our ef
forts to call public attention, and the
attention of the people's represen
tatives in congress, to a condition
that actually threatens southern pro
gress and development, have met with
nyost gratifying response. The rural
routes of the south are bestirring
themselves to improve the showing
they must make to the department,
and our representatives in congress
are doing everything possible for
them at that end of the line. We
have received many letters from sena
tors and representatives in congress,
testifying to their vigilant interest in
Congressman Adamson, of Georgia,

The older and more populous parts
of the country were first supplied,
and had been running for years, be

But, strange to 2say, when the de- r
partment began -to act under the n
aconomy spasm, it began by inspect- k
.ng the routes last established in our
part of 'the coi*ntry, putting the e

row they have the remedy in their T]
vn hands, let them quit asking for nc
ew routes and changes in routes et

tinily can do a wiser or more prof- shi

awspapers. There are friends, rel- be

survey of a number of enterprises i
which women may become their ow
mistresses, such as millinery, laur

real estate. "Furnishing Rooms i:
