How t0 0btain Rural Free De,IverT
la a number of counties in Ten
nessee the rural free delivery system
is in operation and is proving a
great convenience to the public.
At the request of some of the citizens
of Ilarde'iian County, who are anx
ious to have the system introduced
here, we publish below a synopsis
of a circular, sent out from the. Post
Office Department, giving informa
tion on the subject:
A petition must be presented to
the First Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral, signed by those who desire the
scrice. Said petition should be
Mimed only by heat..- oi families,
ai.d should mention the number in
each family over 10 years of age.
It -lioul 1 set forth the nature of
thecoui-try where the delivery is
tivsii ' d, v. !i'-ther densely or sparsely
populate;!, the principal avocations
i' the p. . :!,, the character of the
mads. a:.d the distances which,
lit! 'iff e;-;im.r e mditions, each
i '-o:. I -V io travel to receive hi.-t-
;il, and should bo accompanied b)
a map or pl.-'t, indicating the route
or ro ites proposed.
Tliis petition, when properly
j-igt-ed, should le sent to your Con-
'.n.-Sf-mun or Senator with the re
; o sL i Ii it they endorse thereon
l:.;;r recommendation of the services
:i-';i-d. ,-:d forward tlie petition to
l!i . ; p 'i tmeiit .
The purpose of the Rural Free
Di li very System is to give postal
f.ic'ditus to those who have none;
to rarry the mails daily to remote
communities, the residents of which
would otherwise nave to travel from
two to twelve miles to receive their
letters and newspapers.
The roads must be good. No
route c n be established under
ordinary circumstances that is less
than from 20 to 25 miles in length,
or which serves less thanlOOfamilies.
The route t-hould be so arranged
that the cariier will not be required
to travel over the same ground twice
oti the same day. Those desiring
the delivery must be prepared to
put up at their own expense, at some
convenient location which ca i be
reached by the carrier without dis
mounting from his buggy, approp
riate and secure boxes for the re
ception ol the U. S. Mai), of a char
acter to give protection from the
weather and to be reasonaoly proof
against mischievous or malicious
interference. Carriers are not re
quired to deliver mail to houses
standing back from th main road,
except in the case of registered mail,
special delivery and pension letters.
Upon receipt of a petition favor
ably endorsed, a special agent is
assigned to visit the location im'i
cated, to map out a route or routes,
and to select rural carriers to be
appointed by the Department. In
all such cases the advice of the Rep
resentative in Congress is sought,
both as regards the carrier and tlie
postal service to be discontinued on
tlie establishment of Rural Free
Rural carriers are required to give
bond in the sum of 500, with two
sureties. Thev are paid by warrants
issued by the '1 :e-a-ury Department
upon certlrioates forwarded by the
l-tiu,istcr. T.u-ir rate of pay is
(ixrd by the Department, and in
clu'.i s hor-e hire. Tin: maximum
ran of pav, as at present establish
ed, is ::v;0 j er annum for a lull
rom.-'of : j -1 oximalioo 2" miles, or
iiV'J per annum for each live miles
travelled. Oi shorter routes, one
or more substitute carriers should
be provided, who must give bond
same as regular carrier, and who
alone are permitted .to carry the
mail in ti e absence or disability of
the ivgi:i;:r carrier. The carrier is
to pay the substitute at the same
rate lie himelf receives. All rural
carriers are under control of the
Pot:nar ter from whose office the
service is established, who is re
(juiiad to report any derelictions
upon their part.
Mail is to be delivered every day
in the year except Sundays. Rural
carriers are required to take with
them on their trips for the accom
modation of their patrons a suffi
cient supply of stamps, envelopes
