SOMETHING ABOUT THE RURAL
DELIVERY SERVICE IN LAURENS
The New System of Handling the Mails Was Inaugura
ted Ten Years Ago in the County. With
Waterloo Route No. 1.
With tlio establishment ten years
ago of ihe first rural delivery route
from Waterloo, the service was stead
ily extended until throe years age
when what is termed n complete coun
ty rural delivery system was Inaugu
rated in I.aureus. This COUUty was
one Of the fll'St III tln> State to secure
the complete service this having been
accomplished through the efforts ol
Congressman J. T. Johnson. After
I.aureus, all the rest of the counties
in the Fourth district were likewise
reorganized. Since the reorganization
of the system no new routes have been
established in Lumens, though some
changes In the different routes of the
county have been made front time to
time, one of those was the removal
from Princeton of No. - to Ware
Shoals. This change, however, did not
cut Laurons out of the service as given
by this particular carrier.
As it now stands, there are twenty
four routes wholly within the county,
while seven others extend the service
Into I.aureus from different post of- '
lliees located outside the borders ol
the county. For Instance, three of the
routes from Fountain inn cover por
tions of Youngs and Dials townships,
two from Ware Shoals extend Into
Sullivan ami Waterloo townships, and
one trout 1 Innen Path comes to Prince
ton. In this way the county Is practical
ly covered every day in the year savei
the si\ legal holidays allowed the car-j
tiers by lite department. Tins;? holi
days are: New Year s Day. Washing-|
ions nirlhduy, Memorial Day. Inde
pendence Day. Labor Day and Thanks
giving Day. In addition, all carriers
who have been in the service a year
on the 1st of July are allowed an an
nual leave of absence for fifteen days. J
with full pay. ihus giving each carrier
the benefit of twenty-one days off duty
The maximum salary is $7."i thei
month, and the average for this county |
is probably $70, which brings into the
county monthly between $1,700 and
$1,800. It is estimated that the routes
in the county, as a whole, are self
sustnlning to the extent of about 25
Mr. II. o. Fuller of Waterloo, the
first carrier appointed 111 Palliens
county, is still in the service, having
completed his ten years only a few
weeks ago. The next carrier named
for the county was Mr. P. R. Moore
at OwlllgS. He too, is one of flip vet
eran carriers still in the service.
Messrs J, E, Johnson, appointed from
l.nil ford and Arch C. Owings from
Cray Court, both of whom seem to
like the job, went to work in 1902. A
few months later the lirst route from
I.aureus was established and Mr. Jos
eph Jackson Dendy was appointed as
cattle-. On Juno the lirst, this year,
he resigned and Mr. Louis Anderson
was named as his successor. Mr.
Dendy iiso'i an automobile for a time
this year, although he was not the
fust to adopt this mode of delivering
the mails In Palliens. Mr. S. ('.. Mc

route several years ago.
Other carriers in the county use. at
times, bicycle and motor-cycle with
more or less success. Put take it one

that will heat the faithful horse, top

economic standpoint, the horse is not
likely to he supplanted very soon win n
it conies to carrying the mail in I.uu

such improvement in road conditions

it is unnecessary to dwell on the
benefits and popularity of the rural de

Laurens. it |s one of the modern pub
' lie utilities that has not only Improved
rural conditions socially and educa
tionally, but from the standpoint of a
general betterment of things pertain
ing to farm life, such as good roads,
".he increased value of farm lands, h
has been and is a factor of tremendous
force and Influence.
In the personnel of the rural letter
carrier force, past and present, operat
ing In this county, the various voca
tions and pursuits of the "working
man" are herein represented. These
Include farmers, mechanics, contrac
tors, clerks, teachers, bookkeepers and
"ven newspaper correspondents. While
tin- position of carrier is looked upon
by many as a sinecure, it is neverthe
less one of responsibility and exacting
requirements. Certain spec I tied men
tal and physical qualifications are rc
quired of each applicant before ndmtt
ed to the eligible list, in other words
me are selected for the service
under the rules of the civil service ot
the rural division of the pOStofllce de
partment at Washington. Lach carri
er is required to have a Substitute, who
like the carrier is a bonded officer ol
the postal service. When he rides he
gets the same remuneration as the reg.
ular carrier. Provided he is on the
eligible list, the substitute ? airier is'
always cert I lied for appointment to
any existing vacancy from the 0 111 CO he
serves, providing further, that he has
been in the serv'eo at least six months
prior to such certification. Civil ser
vice examinations for the rural car
rier service are not held at stated
limes-this being necessary only al
ter the li.,t of eligibles has expired.
The carrier force is under the super
vision of the postmaster of the otllce
from which the service is conducted.
To l im all reports are made, supplies
purchased ami complaints rendered.';
It is also up.?n his recommendation
that schedules are arranged, leaves,
of a'M iit obtained: in truth the post-j
master virtually directs and controls'
the operation of the service from his
otllce. It might proper to state
iu re that through the efforts of Post
master George s. McCravy, more than
one id' the six routes from the Laurens
ifllcc were secured along in 1002 to
1001, lie has always taken great pride
in the service, for he is thorough! '
familiar with rural conditions and has
been at all times anxious to see farm
ers given every advantage possible.
The rural delivery service in Lau
rens may he imperfect in some re- j
s|m ts. but it is certainly Idling its mis
sion as a whole in a most satisfactory

age. Air flights on heavy machines,

Have You Tried It?
There is a bottle of Cardui waiting for you at the
drug store. Have you tried it?
If not, we urge you to do so, before your troubles
have obtained such a hold on you, that nothing will drive
Even now, it may be nearly too late. But try it any
how. If anything can help you, Cardui will. It has helped
in thousands of cases, where other medicines had been
tried in vain. Why should it not do the same for you?
The Woman's Tonic
"My daughter, Octava, would have been in her grave
today, had it not been for that fine medicine, Cardui,"
writes Mrs. Laura Lawrence, of Drennon Springs, Ky.
"Nothing I tried helped my daughter, until she had
taken Cardui. I had sent for the doctor, when I thought
of your medicine and got a $1 bottle. When she had
taken four doses she became all right I often recommend
Cardui to my friends."
Your druggist sells Cardui with full instructions for use
on the bottle.
