if )L 1 I sif.r! I 1 5 SfV 'M'i S DeWltt without Ik POSTOFFICE HAS NEW BOXES Accommodates Large Number on Waiting List and Admits More Ip^vlLight. Office Well Equipped. The Denison post office now rejoices in the addition of 117 new lock boxes. When ordered this was thought to be somewhat in excess o* the demand. Although installed less than a week, every one of the new boxes are taken and a few more could perhaps be rented. Denison now has as up-to-date and con venient a post office as can be found ^anywhere except »n a federal building. The popularity of the combination lock b:x furnished oy the American Post Office Equipment Company, of.Chicago, has been fully tested here by two years' service. It is I simple, easily opened, is always locked when closed, and is in many respects a great convenience to both patrons and office force. The Denison office now has rented 300 email "lock boxes, 64 medium sized lockboxes 18 lock drawers and approximately 400 call boxes, for which the government receives a rental of nearly ffil 100 yearly. We doubt ifjany cffice in a town of this size canjmake a belter showing. It has taken the measurement of yards of red tape and much planning to bring the equipment of .the office up to its present standard and in this the post master has been greatly assisted by the loyal citizens. |wbo believe that Denison shou'd have the best there is. The open ing of the lobby for renders of lock box es throughout the entire day on Sun days and holidays has also added large ly to the convenience of the people, and it would be hard to persuade them to give up this privilege. While talking post office we might add that last week the office money order record was broken, fifty-one orders being sold on Monday, while for the week 196 domestic -and nine foreign orders were issued. The extention of the inner office to the front gives light which was badly needed andjwill facilitate the distribu tion of mails greatly. We are not bragging on the postmas ter he is doubtless a p. n. p. p. p. p. of the first water, but the clerks are all right, the office is a dandy and the pa trons seem pretty well satisfied. MEETS1DEATH IN A CISTERN. William Behernes, a Laborer for Clark Marshall, Falls Into a Cistern and isSDrowned.
