Parcels Post Locally
All communities, big and little,
are experimenting with the new
parcels post law. That it will be a
success seems already certain, but
what effect it will have on local
merchants is not as yet clear. It
is being used in a modest way,
though few realize its possibilities
or understand it fully enough to
take advantage of it. In another
place is a simple explanation of its
requirements and uses.
The first person in Friday Harbor
to mail a package under the new
law was Mrs. 0. H. Culver, who
sent it New Year's day. Eventually
it will be of special advantage to
individuals here, because of ihere
being no express office and on ac
count of the minimum freight
charge of 45 cents from the main
land. This vvas demonstrated the
first of the week. A lady here sent
a couple of quilts to her dajghter
in Seattle. Ihe package weighed
eight pounds. The charge to Seat
tle by boat would have been 45
cents, with an additional delivery
charge of not less than 50 cents.
The postage, which insured delivery
to the Seattle residence was only 34

An Elaborate Production
The executive committee of tfee
Improvement club met at the studio
of J. A. McCormiek Tuesday after
noon, to hear an outline of the pro
gram and the clans of Manager
Washburn regarding the coming
minstrel entertainment. He desired
authority to proceed before arrang
ing ofr costumes, music, a place for
rehersals. etc.. and after listening
to Mr. Washbora he was granted
all that he asked for. Unless plane

reason why they should. Friday

witnessing one of the most elabor

Another old pioneer was laid to
rest in the Valley cemetery Tuesday
afternoon—the. remains of Robert
Scurr of Roche Harbor. His death

ago returned from a visit to his old
home, at Webster, Mass, received
word Wednesday morning of the
sudden death of his father, Michael
J. Kirby, of heart failure. Mr.

His wife, who was sent from this
county to the asylum about nine
years ago was sister to Mrs. John
