KXPBCTS TO MEET JACK BEACH iJf
THIS SECTION IN NEAR FUTURE—
ALSO MORRIS—MAY GET ON WITH
AFRO AND MclNTYRBS AGAIN
AND WILL BE KEPT BUSY.
Leo Kossick expects to have at least
two boxing contests in this, section be
fore he returns to Canada during the
middle of next month.
He is matched to meet Jack Beach,
the well known light weight in this
city during the present month and
there is talk of having Billy Morris
come here also during tne month.
Yesterday Kossick received a letter
from a promoter in Minneapolis which
contained an offer of a bout with L.abe
Safro, and he will likely accept, al
though Safro he thinks will weigh
many pounds more than the local boy.
Kossick has written the twin cities
promoter to the effect that if SaYro will
make even 140 he will meet him, and ht
expects to clinch the match.
Kossick expects to meet an un
known in Saskatoon during January
and there is prospect of his obtaining
a match with Mickey Mclntyre about
the latter part of the month. These
two boxers have met three times, each
getting a decision and the third time
there was a draw. Leo expects to have
plenty of work during the year 1913
and says that he will invade the east
before the summer months draw near.

Football has had its short reign In
the field of sport, basketball, bowling
and other winter pastimes arc now at
tracting attention in different parts of
the country and the boxers are rather
busy in a good many places, but one
can't get away from the fact that base
ball, even though the players have
been in -retirement for some time, still
commands the attention of the big ma
jority of the sporting world. It's noth

great pastime has on the American
public. It seems but a few weeks since
the playing of the world's series, and
yet the big league clubs will be hiking
for the sunny south in a little more
than two months. But even while the
diamond stars are resting the public
has to be kept in touch with their
movements and when the magnates get

SERVICE WILL GIVE IMPETUS TO
EXPORT BUSINESS OF AMERI
CAN R-ETAILERS—WILL AD-
VANCE EXPORT TRADE OF
SMALL BUSINESS MEN.
A new entry to additional foreign
trade Is to be afforded mail order mer
chants of the United States through
the parcels post system which be
comes available Jan. 1, 191U. While
the parcels post plan provides speci
fied and conservative rates only to
points within the territory, of the
United States, merchandise may be
sent to foreign countries at rates
amounting to the domestic parcels
post charges to the national bound
ary plus the necessary foreign postage.
In no instance will the transportation
charges on packages not exceeding
eleven pounds in weight be exorbitant.
Such charges will be found so conser
vative, in fact, that international dis
tribution of merchandise in small lots
by parcels post will afford practical
and probable delivery to bordering
countries and practically every dis
trict of the European continent.
Good for Sample Carrying.
Especially will this international
parcels post plan be found advantage
ous to the general distribution of
samples. Exporting houses that now
are required to supply samples of
goods to patrons in foreign countries
by express may deliver them' more
cheaply and probably with greater
dispatch by mail when the parcels
post service Is inaugurated. Small for
eign orders or orders that may be
broken into eleven pound lots, may be
delivered by means of the new fed
eral delivery system with identical ad
vantages. It is conceded among
merchants that all specialties must be
advertised, must be sampled by the
purchaser before he will buy, and the
producer must bear the expense of in
troducing his specialty and of render
ing it a staple in the market. It Is
because the parcels post directly will
make possiDle for American mer
chants the introduction of his wares
in foreign lands that the new delivery
system is to open to the United States
an unprecedented and limitless terri
tory of trade now enjoyed by but a
comparatively few of the most agres
sive and affluent retailing establish
ments of the country.
U. 8. Is Seventh.
According to statistics of the inter
national bureau of the Universal Post
al union, the United Stattes stands sev
enth in the graduated list of countries
graded according to the volume of
their foreign trade by parcels post. The
uncomplimentary condition now may
be attributed to the tact that United
States merchants have not had the ad
vantage of a domestic parcels post,
but after Jan. 1, Americans may
seftk broader markets for their pro
ducts and do so with comparatively
slight expense, by means o£ the new
system of federal delivery.
Austria, with 16,321,220 parcels valu
ed at $124,818,000, exported by post in
1909, heads the list in the comparative
parcels post exporting scale. Germany,
with 15,840,127 parcels of stated value
amounting to 136,265,000, is second.
France is third with 5,45o,780 parcels
valued at $37,689,000. Next comes Great
Britain with 2.706.8S!) packages for the
year, worth $25,000,000. Then Hungary,
with 3, 668,117 packages valued at $!,
