iBOYiTTAKE UXCLE SAM'S WORK
Bill Formerly Sent by Mall Now De
Ihcreri ly Youths.
Ten Columbia merchants are send
ing out their bills this month by two
boys, who deliver them instead of the
postman. The boys are paid two
cents a bill and make a dollar in an
hour or so in this manner.
"My mother thought of the plan,"
said one of the boys, "and it is a good
money-making idea. We have two or
three bills for many of the houses and
we deliver to most of the houses
along the residence streets, as we
carry bills for ten merchants.''
The merchants trying the plan in
clude three grocers, a butcher, a shoe
dealer and the gas company. The ad
vantage to them consists in having
the bills always delivered to the pro
per person, instead of going astray as
they d'j sometimes by mail.
