A TIMELY SUGGESTION.
In order to afford patrons of Adams

meet their wisbes in effecttug; prompt
delivery of Chrietmaa preeente, it would
be well to adraoniah all not to wait un?
til a day or two beforo Ctrriatmat to
ship their packages by express, as it
cannot be expected that the great
volume cf buaioeas to be bandled can
be accomplished in one or two daya.
It would rill tbe expectation of tbe
_ooor io each case better to bave the
shlpmeot delivered a day before Christ
mafl than the day following. Tbere
fora if articlea wore forwarded earlier,
tbe expreea company would be afford
ai a better opportunity to fulflll the
deairee of ita patrons. It ia aiao sug
gested that the "Do not opan until
