THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. THURSDAA", NOVEMBER 14, 1912.
PARCELS POST IS
TO START JAN. 1
ENDURANCE AND VALOR. OF BULGARIANS SHOWN IN THEIR
PURSUIT OF TURK; HUNGRY AND TIRED, THEY PRESS ON
Postmaster McDonald hat been ex
pecting but has not as yet received tbe
supplies which are belli aent out by
the postal department at Washington,
for the parcels post service, which ia
to be inaugural ed in this and every
other city in the United States, Jan.
1. Locally there is much interest In
the parcels post enterprise. Some say
that the express companies trill now
be forced to cut fates in order to com
pete with the new postal inducements.
A local manufacturer figured yester
day that supplies he received from
Milwaukee. Wis., for which, he now
pays an express rate of 30 cents per
package, will be transported under
the parcels post system for about 12
cents and othar things he aspens
will be transported at a simi'.ar saving.
He argues that the express companies
must necrrsarfly come to their milk or
experience a great slump in business
. during the coming year.
A Io'-al man said yesterday that he
had sold his family horse but had to
deliver him which would occasion
quite a little exp;iditure. A friend
suggested that he wait until Jan. 1 and
sed him by parcels post. It seems
tha't Postmaster General Hitchcock
had anticipated some thing of this
kind as he emphatically states that
whte. the farmer may send eggs,
chickens, ducks, kittens, bees, puppies,
'possums, foxes, etc., ha will discrim
inate against the transportation of
young shoats with a tag tied to the
fore legs, and in fact, all kinds of ani
mals that are dangerous or uncleanly.!

During the brief period of the Balkan war the Bulgarian soldiers have
shown themselves to possess fighting qualities the like of which ia rarely
found m the soldiers of any nation. Poorly equipped with armB and with
out sufficient hospital facilities or food, they have fought the Turk with
wonde-ful courage and skilL In a few days they drove the disorganised
Moslems flying before them from the Bulgarian frontier to the very gates
of Constantinople. Always they were without sufficient food. Though
weary from long marches and hard fighting, they took, little rest, but
pressed on toward the Turkish capital.
Feats such as the Bulgarians have recently accomplished, place the
soidiers of King Ferdinand in the fr-ont rank of the world'B fighting men.
A detachment of these indomitable fighters is seen In the accompanying
picture, which was taken not far from Constantinople.
