Iltlltfll PUBLIC 18 HEEDLESS. skis Continues to Disregard Uncle Sam's Ordara Governing Postal Cards, •fhe public still continues to throw good money away. Tn spite of tho1 fact that the new postal regulations "New Shepherd's. Ranche." TK W Ottumwa, Iowa. have been given such wide spread pub liclty, the people apparently pay little^, or no heed to the new rulings of the postmaster general. Postmaster Fred Wilson wishes to call special attention to the following clause of the new regulations: "Cards bearing particles of glass, metal, mica, sand, tinsel or any other similar sub stances are unmallable, except when' enclosed in' envelopes." This class of card still keeps rolling into the local post office from the en thusiastic promoters of the fatal dis ease, postalcarditis, and attention is once more called to the fact that is is useless to mail such cards unless en closed as per tae above clause.* Mrs. George D.
