Breathitt. .Some time since E. S,
Breathitt wanted to get hold of some
''good old Christian County smoking
tobacco" and wrote to the Deputy
Postmaster to send him a lot if he
ooufdet it. Gusthad no trouble in
gettingtthe tobacco, but . laid it away
and forgot to send it. When he
found the letter containing the re
quest the other day he concluded to
give, a turn to , the new system in
augurated by the Government, and
made the first entry.

reason why it should nojc put many

It is, fair to assume that the small
producer in the country would bo
willing to, sell to consumers in the
city at about the same prices that he
trets from wholeaile dealers. It is
also likely that everyone lives within
fifty miles of a farmhouse.
Purchasing "your butter from the
farmer, therefore, in quantities of
two pounds or more, you pay him
26 cents a pound, plus the transpor
tation charges by parcel post
from his door to your own, about '4
centi a pound. Compared with the
grocer's priced you save 7 cents on
every pound of butter which ybef
.use, and you gst fresh butter. ,
Two doxea eggs.ln a witable con
tainer, will weigh lees than three
pounds. Paying the farmer 44 cents
for them, allowing perhaps 8 xcerits
for the cost of the container., and
adding the charge for earriage, your
eggs would cost you 29 cents a do
ea, a saving of 11 cents on a doxen,
or nearly one cent on each egg.
A three-pound chicken, with head
and feet amputated, would 'still
weigh less than three pounds when
wrapped securely. Buying -direct
from the producer, it would cost 111
cents a pound, plus Si pants a pound
for postage, in all, 18 cent leas
than you would have tq pay your
butcher for the same fowl.
The use of the parcels postfor
these three itetne alone would ma
terieily loosen the eoet of living for
the average family in the tity, be
sides iMhting the purchase of fresh
products. And if it hi possible to
got these things direct from the
prodacer, it ie eaay to conceive how
