A RECORD SEASON.
Jos. W. Daniels, Supt. of Station A,
together with his assistant, P. O. Daste, d
and our letter carriers, are to be con- T
gratulated upon the admirable manner lE
in which they handled the great
amount of Christmas business which
was a record week for Station A dur
ing the holidays. Never before were
there so many registered packages a
sent from this Station, or were there
a greater number received for distri
bution by the carriers. The Algiers'
force was not given any assistmnce
from the main ofmce to handle this in
Screased business, but notwithstanding
Sthis, they were able to get out the
mail with as much despatch and a
promptness as they were at the city
office, where they had ample assist
ance. The force of the Alglers post
office desires to thank all our people
here for their cooperation in facilitat
ing the office's business during the
