One of our neihboi ing editors,
in whom we have the utmost
confidence has made a very
thorough investigation of the
etf'ect of the new parcel po.t on
our home merchants, In answer
to our question, "Will the new
law hurt the home merchant,"
"While the plan was under
consideration in Congress it had
to meet the solid opposition of
retailers' organizations. Their
enmity was based on the theory
that the parcels post would prove
an immense advantage to the
big mail order housrs. Now
that the new de'iverv svstcrn i3
about to become a fact, the wise
country merchant is preparing
to make the best of it. In in
vestigating his opportunity

flat rate, the zone system finally!
adopted gives a distinct advant- j
age to the local retailer. Instead
of hurting him it really ought to
be of service to him. The bar-;
gain rate of the whole system is I
the rate between the rural deliv-!
cry center and all points on the '
outlying routes. The rural routes
get the local rate. This is to:
say, a package will he taken to ;
any point on a rural route for;
the same rate paid for the deliv-1
ery of packages within the town '
limits. This local rate is five
cents for the first pound, and j
one cent a pound for the other !
ten. An eleven pound package j
it the local rate would be deliv- j
ered for 15 cents. When you
locate the delivery of the pack- j
ige at the far end of a country i
route it offers the. best package!
ielivery bargain offered in this I
country. While the country j
cown merchant is getting this i
,ocal bargain rate the big mail
jrder house is paying a high j
rate that increases in proportion !
the distance of the house
from its patron. The country !
merchant not only has an adyant- i
ige in the rate, but his natural ;
Advantages in time is materially ;
augmented. The rural telephone!
is now the concomitant of the'
rural route. Where both are :
ivailable all that is required is a.
little forethought in early order-:
ing, and goods may be delivered ;
from town on the same day the
jrder is 'phoned in. ;
"Apparently all that is needed

chant is a little enterprise in
utilizing the facilities afforded

ing in the local papers would
seem to be his long suit. Up-to-snuif
