"Post offices will make every ef fort to handle the Christmas mails without congestion and delay, but » wing to enormous volume this can be done only with the cooperation of the public," is the statement given out by the postoffice depart ment. "Compliance with the post ed rules for proper mailing will greatly aid the post office, and in sure the prompt handling of your mail." In other words, the postoffice department insinuates, even if Christmas mailers do enjoy stand-: ing in lines at the parcel-post win< dow and having improperly wrap ped packages refused by the clerks, the postal employes would appre ciate early shipments and proper packing in more ways than one. Thoughtfulness on the part of the public not only eases their work, but insures the faster delivery of goods through the mail. * Rules governing the mailing of packages are bulletined in the post office, or will be issued upon re quest.

If no water is found be tween the two layers, it is expec ted that the well will produce from both sands, the Dakota and Dako ta. A good show of gas and oil was made in the first sands, and the operators figure that a commer cial volume is now available, but are going deeper to increase the production possibility. The depth is now about 5,750 feet, Gas has shown better in this well than in any other bore on Dry creek. At times the pressure has been strong enough to stop the action of the mud pump on the re tary drill. In no other well on the structure has the pressure been strong enough to force the gas bub bles up through the mud in the bore. The Beartooth well of the Car bon Oil & Gas company is coring near the Dakota sand at about 5, 560 feet and operators are encour aged by the showings made. Last (Saturday the new well was spudded in on the Kuschinsiko lease of the Golden dome. Drilling with cable tools, it is already about 160 feet down. Workmen this week were closing in the rig on the Ohio-Robinson brothers well, which is to toe spud ed in within the next two weeks. Cable tools will be used. The Montana-Industrial No. 2 of the Ohio company will get under way as soon as the machinery can he transferred from the Chapman well upon its completion. COLORADO BOY KILLED.

No shut down order has been received yet, on either Unit A or Unit B. Although the ground is pretty well frozen by this time, the power shovels of the construction com pany are moving almost as fast as before, as most of the work for the past several weeks has been done in rock. The pioneer shovel has been delayed some by the dyna miting crews, but have been work ing ahead of the machine, but not as much "shooting" has been nec essary as was anticipated. The grade on the fourth level is still (being carried north toward Quad creek, the pioneer shovel yes terday being about 300 feet from the creek. During the course of the work, it is said that an amount of ice has been duig from a layer that was uncovered by the shovel three weeks ago. At places, chunks of ice 8 or 10 feet thick have been rip ped out. The follow-up shovels be hind the pioneer have experienced some difficulty in negotiating the section where the ancient ice Is mixed with the rock. Frequent blasting will toe necessary to clear away such places. STEAMSHIP RAMS 'A 3, Captain and Six Men Sink With Boat "Edith and Eleanor New York, M !26.—(AP)—.
