The posioffice at Ix>s Angeles is hav
ing a st renuoii* t ime these days to dis
patch second class ma'l matter. In ad
dition to the larj>e amount of first-class
mail nuttier to sort out and route, as a
result <»l the lari^e number of tourists
and visitors in that city at this time,
the pus t office clerks are putting in
overtime handling tons of copies of
the Midwinter Number of the Los An
geles Times, which was issued on Jan.
Ist. As usual, citizens and tourists
all over the Southwest are mailing
great numbers «»f this issue of "The
Times',' to friends — many going to re
mote parts of the world.
No section of the world can tell a
prouder story of progress and develop
ment than can Southern California for
1902, and "The Times" has certainly
told it truthfully and well, and best of
all, has told it in few words and in at
tractive form. Such papers do effect
ive missionary work in the East and
one can more correctly inform friends
of the real conditions of life in the
"land we love" by sending them a
copy of this issue of "The Times"
than by any number of letters or or
dinary papers. ••
