' POSTAL INEFFICIENCY New England need not plume herself OS being the only part of the country subjected by the Port Office Department to poor mail train service and delayed and indifferent delivery of mails. Similar conditions seeui to obtain throughout tli' country. Hera is an in stance from Lawrence County, South Dakota. The marketing agent for the applegtowati al the country work ed up good markets for the local product by u thorougkfltif "Sal paign of advertising and soliciting. His customers were mainly small buyers in the second parcel post zone from his shipping point. The post office employees complained that they were being over burdeurd. and entered objection to the auynt 's use of the post for de livery of the fruit. The Post Office Department thereupon ordered the routing of parcel post matter from the agent 'm station in such way that it was carried into the third one, then twisted back for delivery in the second Third-zone rates were charged. The difference consumed the margin of profit, and I he shipment slopped. The fruit growers of Lawrence County are without a market for their crop. Kuterprisc has been punished and an industry destroyed. Whichever way one turns- to the city or to the rural districts be finds this poor, inefficient, disorganized, and contemptuous service on the part of the Post Office Department increasing. How long the convenience anil the industrial interests of the country, especially in the non-urban territories, will be scornfully disregarded lor the aake of so called economy, one can only guess. The steadily growing si ream of complaints, coming alike from private citizens and busi-1 new men, indicates that the Post Office Department apparently be lieves that there is no public need or convenience that it is bound to consider.
