which, for a. short time proved richer
even than those of Nome. From them
within a few hours was taken wealth
estimated conservatively at from $10,
000 to $15,000. The gales, however, did
not uncover any store of treasure hid
den there by nature, out insieaa
caused the seas to wash up on the
beach all sorts of Jewelry which had
been lost in the vicinity by careless
wearers during the past summer.
The first find in the shape of a valu
able gold watch had hardly been made
before word of it spread abroad, and
within a few hours thousands of per
sons were combing the sands in search
of treasure. That their search was
productive of much wealth is shown by
a partial tabulation of their findings
which included a dozen gold watches,
11 rings set with either diamonds, ru
bies or emeralds, 31 stick pins, 42
bracelets; numerous neck chains, nearly
5500 in currency, and garter buckles,
sleeve links, watch fobs and other jew
elry of the same sort almost without
mention. In addition to these the sea
yielded up posts, pans and kettles al
most without number so that alto
gether the gales provided a store of
wealth richer than- any within the mem
ory of the oldest beach frequenter.
Banner Tear for Babies.
Whatever other vicissitudes it may
have passed through during the past
year, New York found 1912. a banner
year for babies. Not only were more
infants born during the past 12 months,
hut a smaller percentage of them died
than ever before. Indeed the figures
covering infant mortality constitute the
most remarkable feature of the city's
record health year, wnue tne general
death rate was reduced duriijg the year
from 15.13 percent to ,14.11 percent, or i
a little more than- J percent, the rate j
for infants under one year was reduced
6 percent. There were during the year t
14.2S9 deaths of babies under one year I
or age from all causes in the city of I
New York, as compared with 15,053 J
deaths during 1911. At the same time
the number of births in the city in
creased by 1081.
In this ratio, the figures show a sav
ing of S84 babies and an actual saving
of 764. An analysis of the report con
taining these figures indicates that the
improvement in the saving of baby life
was not due to luck or weather condi
tions, but to the campaign which has
been carried on against baby diseases.
As a result -New York now feels en
titled to claim that among large mu
nicipalities it is the most desirable
destination for the stork, at least so
far as a chance for life for the baby

There are more than a hundred first
class electric signs in operation in this city.
We say "in operation" because they do
operate in bringing trade. Does this fact
mean anything to you?
It seems to us it proves beyond question
that the Electric Sign is an advertising fac
tor of tremendous value.
Some business houses have declared that
their trade increased 25 percent within one
week after hanging out an Electric Sign.
There are always good results from
Electric Signs more than justifying the ex
pense. Our sign propositions are based upon
terms so liberal that you can easily take ad
vantage of them.
Why not get the details from us? They
are yours for the asking.

LOCAL MERCHANTS TAKE
PARCELS POST III IELIIIE
New Postoffice Department Furnishes Efficient Pack
age Delivery in City and Suburbs at a Low Cost; the
Express Companies Begin to Change Their De
liveries to Meet the New Competition.
jAs a parcels postman your Uncle
Sammie is a success. The proof is at
the local postoffice where a Ions line
of people waiting: to mall or receive
parcel post packages mar be seen any
Nationally the government package
delivery system has been an assured
success from the opening of the wicket
on January 1. Locally the success is
? 'ess Prnounced, for In the El Paso
crrice hundrdes of parcels are handled
both outgoing and incoming each week.
A back view of the parcels post wln-?-?W.uat.the
Postoffice will prove this,
ior the two men who are on duty there
are surrounded by packages, bundles
and boxes consigned for delivery by
the government post. On the roar stoop
ot tne office may be seen the delivery
end of the parcels post system. Big
packages and little, long boxes, dres3

cases are arranged for delivery n the

-it Js the local end of the parcels post
business which is interesting the mar
chants most at this time. Slow to take
ahVaJ?.tase of the parcel post system,
tne El Paso merchants are awakening
to the fact that they have a speedy
ana efficient delivery service at their
aisnosal which is cheaper and as quick
as the more expensive messenger ser
vices. For six cents a two pound
Bundles may be sent to Washingtos
park by a merchant and be delivered
"within an hour after it is mailed. If
sent to the office by 10 o'clock in the
This is an application of the local
rate of five cents for the first pound
and one cent for each additional pound.
For 10 cents a seven pound package
m&y be mailed to any address in the
city, which is in the delivery district.
Downtown the service is even better
for two deliveries are made daily jit all
but the surburban districts. Deliveries
leave the postoffice at 10 o'clock in the
morning and at 2 o'clock in the after
noon each day except Sunday.
There is but one delivery dally in
Highland park and east of Cotton ave
nue, both above and below the tracks.
As soon as the parcels business de
velops sufficiently the district east of
Cotton avenue will be divided and will
be served with deliveries to be ar
Sub stations will be established for
f receiving parcels outside of the main
omce, out ior tne present all pack
ages wiii be received only at the post
office. A collection service will also
be established later, the postoffice of
ficials believe, and regular collections
will be made from these substations
and also from the larger business
Shoppers who go downtown before
10 o'clock may have their purchases
wrapped and delivered to them at their
home in any part of the city by noon.
This beats the best of the delivery
services and makes it possible for the
retail stores to improve their service
and do it with less cost than the old
wagon, auto or messenger delivery
service. Anything mailable may be
sent parcel post and some things which
are not accepted in the regular mails.
Liquids up to 11 pounds will be han
dled for local delivery if wrapped in
strong paper and well tied. Liquids
will be accepted for delivery in anv
zone up to 12 ounces, if packed in
wooden, metal or paper machie tubes
or boxes. Improperly wrapped pack
ages will not be forwarded, especially
liquids in breakable packages. The
sender of all parcels must place the
address on the outside of the package
to make it mailable. Insured packages
must be examined before they are
signed for in order to determine their
condition. Packages mailed at the
postoffice are marked "fragile" by th
parcels post clerks if requested to do
so and this insures their careful hand
ling In transit.
Express Companies Take Notice.
Express companies are beginning to
sit up and take notice of the parcels
post business which Uncle Sam is doing
sinCA January 1. In Los Anralc u
branch offices have been established
by one express company and arrange
ments made with an electric line to
have an express delivery service to all
parts of the city. This will begin
February 1, and is being arranged for
in order to compete with the parcels
post of the government.
Since the policy of express -omparK-s
is a general one, it is probable that Kl
Paso 'will also receive the benefit of
the added service although the local
office has not yet been notified of any
change in the delivery service, it has
also been announced in Los Angeles
