Don't rush Into the PdstoOlce three
days before Christmas with a pack
age nddreised to Seattle or Shanghai
nncl expect it'to arrive on time.
Don'f ' wrap or nail your packnges
jn such a way that an Inspection
'nould be dlmcult, should an examina
tion of them be deemed necessary.
Don't tie sfour boxei tilth sewing
thread or fine cord and expect them
to rench their destination Intact.
Don't let your package exceed the
limit of size. No articles more than
72 Inches In length and girth com
bined will be accepted.
Do -your Christmas shipping enriyl
This Is the advice which Thomas Mc
Leister, chief of the Parcel Post De
partment In Philadelphia gives to all
who arc going to call on Uncle Sam to
do the Santa Claus ncUfor them.
Incidentally he Is an ardent advocate
of the "shop early" movement, because,
says he. when people shop early they
usually ship early and that helps a lot
to relieve the nlmost unmanageable con
gestion which prevails In the Postolllce
three or four days before Christmas.
Excluslvo of today, only 13 more shop
ping nnd shipping aays remain, and al
ready little placards and pamphlets are
being put out In an endeavor to educate
the public In regard to sending Christ
mas sifts.
"To mall early, to wrap securel)' and
to address plainly," said Mr. McLelster,
"aro the three bits of advice which wo
aro try Ing hardest to get- people to take,
but, from my past experience, I can
honestly stato that the dear publla Is
moBt difficult to educate along these
lines, at any rate.
"Another thing concerning which ship
pers should use their heads is in the
matter of sending perishable goods. On
Thanksgiving a large quantity of edible
stuff passed through our hands, and we
nre proud to say that the only thing
which v.as spoiled, was a chicken that
came all the way from Washington State.
But ordinarily It Is not wise to send
perishable goods beyond the second zone,
that Is to say, the area of 50 to 1 miles
from here."
The mother who wants to send her boy
In the Philippines his Christmas dinner
may hare the best Intentions In the .world,
but the postottlco advises her against It.
The Philippines are In the eighth zone,
and the eighth zone takes In an area
of from ISOO to 3000 miles, and cooked
turkeys are poor long-distance travelers,
experience has taught.
