This is a question that is puzzling men

ered over fifty years ago, tested, true and tried, is always obtainable at any

Business Now Under Two Heads;
Parcel Post Insurance
_ in Effect
Bringing all the work of the local
Post Office under two departments
In accordance with the reorganisation
plans made recently by Postmaster
General Burleson, the divisions of
finance and malls were formally In
stalled this morning.
Postmaster Sites has been gradu
ally working toward this system which
is used in many of th«T large cities of
the country, for the past several
I months, consequently there was little
noticeable difference when the work
was transferred. All the details of
the new system have not yet been In
stalled owing to the limited facilities
at the temporary headquarters. Sev
eral minor details have not been
agreed upon by Postmaster Sites and
the department so that it will be
some weeks before all the features
of the two divisions are working.
The office of assistant postmaster Is
abolished with the transference of
Samuel W. Fleming to chief of the
division of finance without change in
salary. In the mailing division three
clerks receive advances In salary as
follows. E. H. Anderson and Harry
B. Speas from sixth grade clerks at
$1,200 to assistant superintendents of
mails at $1,300; J. E. Lenig, clerk of
the sixth grade to foreman of mails
at $1,300. Other changes will be
made later. One of the features of
the new plan is that clerks can be
called by the chief of either division
to some other work without regard to
regular assignments. When the force
m<>ves back into the Federal building,
the superintendent of malls will be
placed in the former assistant post
master's office at the end of the main
corridor, where he will receive com
plaints and settle other business mat
Another change at the Post Office
to-day was the installation of parcel
post insurance. Under the old system
It was impossible to trace parcel post
matter. Now the hour of sending is
recorded and provision made to trees
the package in case of necessity.
