ADOPTION OF PARCELS POST OP
ENS A WIDE FIELD FOR LIGHT
After experimenting for nearly ten
years in the use of motor collecting
and distribution of mail, the United
States government admits at last, that
in certain localities, where collection
stops are few and far between, a mo
tor car. is far more efficient than a
horse and wagon. In such cases it has
decided to allow the carrier to buy a
motor car, for which he will be allow,
ed a sum more than ample for mainte
nance and repairs.
One of the first cities in which this
innovation has-been placed in service
is Pittsburg. Several Studebaker "20"
delivery wagons are already in satis
factory service there. Other cities are
being added to the approved list and
prospects Indicate '.that, before the
passing of many months, not only the
suburban, but the rural routes as well,
will be equipped with the motors.
The addition of the parcels post will
also greatly multiply the number of
motor care with the sign. "XL S. Mail"
on their panels. Delivery and. collec
tion of the parcels will be by motor
cars in all the big cities, the govern
ment making contracts for the ser
vice. Figures on the cost of motor de
livery have been asked at virtually ev
ery center, according to the Studebak
er branch managers, who were recent
ly in conference at Detroit, the pecul
iar adaptability of the Studebaker to
this class of service, being universal
To a great extent, according to de
livery experts, the work of mail col
lection and delivery must be done by
light wagons, capable of making al
most touring car speed on a small
consumption of gasoline and oil. An
other requisite is ample cooling capao
ity, for the car must be able to stanu
at the curb with motors running, for
periods of varying length.
A limited number of larger trucks
may be profitably used -betwee'n the
postal sub-stations, but the main part
of the work will have to be done by
the smaller rigs.
It is typical of the government's
conservatism, that in both the general
work and. the. parcels post,' the gov
ernment continues its policyof non
ownership of vehicles.
Experts have commented on the in
telligent way in which most of the
prospective contractors for govern
ment jobs have been attacking- the de
livery problem. Statistics of the mo
tor delivery system already m opera
tion are eagerly welcomed and there is
a general disposition to question care
fully the adequacy of local or -neigh
boring depots of supplies and repair
PIKE'S PEAK, NOT THE HIGHEST
What is the highest mountain iu
Colorado? "Piko's Peak," nineteen
persons out of twenty will answer,
and incorrectly. The twentieth rr '
know that the two highest mountains
in the state are Mount Massive an I
Mount Elbert, both in Lake countv in
the Leadville district. The altit :ile
of each of these mountains, accord
ing to the United States Geological
Survey, is. 14,402 feet above sea level.
The height of Pike's Peak is 14.10S
feet. Moreover, there are fifty or sixty
other peaks in Colorado approximate
ly as high over 14,000 feet. The low
est point in Colorado is 3,350 feet
above sea level. Of all the state, Col
orado has the highest average alti
tude, estimated by the Geological Sur
vey at 6,800 feet.
Although not tho highest mountain,
Pike's Peak is probably the best-
known peak in the United States.
There was at one time a weather
bureau station on its summit, and it
now has a substantial railway sta
tion at the terminus of the highest
railway line in the United States, or
North America for that matter. It can
also be reached by an excellent wagon
road and trail which connect the sum
mit with Colorado Springs.
To all the members of the Yuma
County Commercial Club.
You are hereby notified that there
will be a special meeting of the Yuma
County Commercial Club on Friday,
January 10, 1913, at 7:30 p. m., for
the purpose of nominating directors
of the club for the ensuing year.
