PARCEL POST PACKAGE ,' At the beginning of the Christmas buying season it might be helpful to many merchants to know that the postal regulations advise that inside of a parcel should be the name and address of the sender and consignee, and that invoices may , be included with parcel post shipments. Sources of identifiation within packages of ten are the sole means of restoring the parcel to the rightful owner, in cases where packages become untied or unwrapped in the mails. A quotation from postal regula tions authorized by Stewart M Youiur. Wichita postmaster, fol lows: "In connection with this item, you may call the attention of your read ers to the fact that it is permissible to enclose with all parcel post ship ments an invoice, either written or printed, or sales slip, showing the name and address of the consignor I and consignee ; names and quantities ,: of the articles enclosed, together with description, price, style, stock num ber, size and quantity of the arti cles, the order or file number, date of order, and date and manner of ship ment, and the initials or name of the salesman or of the person by whom the articles were packed or checked. "No doubt many parcel post ship pers are unaware of this important feature of the service, which, if tak en advantage of, would correct the complaints made."
