Buy Stamps o.n Rural Routes.
Postmaster Chas. J. Purel desires
to call attention to the p'ractice of
~ome patrons of rural delivery of plac
ing loose coins in their boxes each
time they desire to dispt.tch letters
instead of supplying themselves with
postage in advance of their needs.
This practice impcses t:idue hard
shio oii rural earriers in removing
loose coins from boxes and delays
them on the service of their routes.
.The postmaster, therefore, urgent
ly requests that pa.trons of rural de
livery provide themselves and keep
on hand a supply of stamps consistent
with and inr advance of th'eir needs.'
It is also very desirable that ruralI
patrons place in -their nmail boxes
