Concerning R. F. D. Carriers.

an order to go into effect July 1 next.
A few extracts are herewith given:
Carriers are forbidden to solicit ordere
of any person or firm, but carriers may
carry packages upon the request of the
patrons of tho route whenever such
service shall not interfere with their
odicial duties. The hire for morohan
diso carried on requost of the patrons
of rural free delivery must be paid by
the patron and not by the seller of such
All mailable articles must have post
age paid on same. Articles or packages
that arc not mailable which the patron
desires tho rural carrier to carry must
be delivered to him in person. Maila
ble matter placed in the post-ofllce or
a rural lettor box Is subjoct to tho
regulations governing the mai'.-i,includ
ing payment of postage. Carriers must
not accept anything that will delay tho
delivery of mail or interfere with the
efficiency of the service. They are not
allowed to leave their routes nor carry
splrltouB liquors either for themselves
or the accommcdation of patrons.
Rural carriers are required to per
mit post-ofllce inspcc'or?, or other duly
accredited agents of the Post-Office
Department, to accompany them
on their regulsr trips over their
routes. They must not carry other
passengers nor permit any other than
authorized postal officials to rido with
them or to have access to the mails.
SOME Y1EW8 A8 TO FUNERALS.
Thoughtful Saggestions by an Intelli*
Mr. Editor: With your permission I
want to call the attention of our people
to some reforms, I think much needed
in funeral customs . Ordinarily the un
dertaker is requested to have the
hoar.--e at the home at a certain hour.
If the driver should miss the hour by
fifteen minutes, those in ohargo show
much impat;ence and worry, and the
same parties often keep the hearse
waiting after the hour appointed, thir
ty minutes or more. This needs reform.
Funeral services are often conducted at
a church and the procession goes to
grave to find it unfinished, and a wait
of thirty or forty minutes is often nec
essary. This could be avoided and
ought to be. After the undertaker is
told that, "wo will have no service at
the church, only a short service at tbe
grave," he goes on to find the pastor
with his hook service and is often kopt
thirty minutes or more by long prayers
a. d longer talks when the people are
standing on the cold ground or in the
hot sun. Much suffering and sickness
often result from such a service. This
Often tho coffin is opened to tbe gaze
of a curious congregation. This needs
reform. Only in extraordinary cases
do I think this ought to be allowed, and
only for some near relatives to view
the remains. Pall bearers are expected
to help bury the dead. Often we see
strong men stand and never offer to
assist on such occasions and allow the
Pall bearers to do most of the work.
This is wrong and very thoughtless.
In some towns it is customary for
merchants to close their stores a few
minutes while the funeral procession
is passing. This is respectful and
ought to be regarded on all occasions.
These reforms ought to be practised
for the benefit of the public generally,
but more especially for the family in
w. T. A.

In addition to breathing Hyomei
three or four times through the in

It is the most economical of all reme
dies for the core of catarrh, and the
only one that follows a natural method
in treating diseases of the respiratory
