Get all your letters to the postofftcc it
as early in In the day as you can and '.I
avoid the rush un tne postofTlce em- o
ployes between four o'clock und sev- a
en. This splitting of the mall of big si
business places into two or more lots p
will help out considerably In the lar- ."i
ger towns.
Mail your Christmas parcels early, w
By so doing you save lots of man b
power at the postoffices. By mailing t(
parcels early the work can be dlvid- tl
ed over several weekB instead of be- si
ing done in a rush. Stickers reading ei
"Don't Open Until Christmas" shoula V
bo used in all aiding the postofTice in m
this way. si
It Is a patriotic'duty to do these r;
things. It becomes the duty of every ai
citizen to conserve the man force at ni
tho postoffices in this time of hur- e'
i rled work in every department of the
I government. dl
i Starting with next Friday drop d
I letters can go for two cents but let- T
icro 10 parties uuisiue or me town gi
must carry three cents In postage, tt
This extra postage is part of the war p;
tax. The failure to place sufficient ti
postage on letters will mean delay >;
and disappointment in the delivery w
of the mall, cause confusion, annoy- t
ance and Inconvenience ad will be an fc
Imposition on the postal employes, cl
causing them unnecessary labor. Pos- tt
tnl cards must hereatfer bear an ad- tr
dltional one-cent stamp besides the jc
stamp Impressed on the card. The
new order does not efTect printed al
cards known as private mailing bi
cards. It Is suggested that business w
(lrms having lots of mail get differ- |p
ent colored stamped envelopes, using tt
one color for drop letters as they are, n
and others for three-cent postage. w
Very few of the offices have any w
great quantity of three-cent stamped a]
j envelopes on hand hut they have or- p|
dercd them.: Stamped envlopes come 0|
in three colors besides white. c(
The Christmas mall this year is ex- u
pected to be very heavy. There will SI
be messages and remembrances to in
pernaps z.uuu.uuo men in the army
abroad and in the cantonments of
this country. The department will be ir
called upon to handlce practically two t(
Christmas mailings, one on Nov. 15 C1
(or the troops in France and sallorB
with the fleets; the other will be the -,]
usual heavy Christmas movements s.
for the home and in addition (or the 6,
men at cantonments.
It must be remembered that parcels ij
going to France can hardly he expect- r}l
ed to reach their destination by p,
Christmas unless mailed on or before j.
Nov. 15. About Nov. 10 is the best p
time to mall such articles and letters. rj
It will be impossible under the t|
transportation operations in France
to send parcels of greater weight
than seven pounds. Such parcels p,
should be offered to the postoffice op- ,j,
en so that the contents may be In- -jspected
and the postmaster affix to [e
the parcel his certificate that no pro- p,
hibitod articles aro contained there- p]
in. Failure to comply with these di- a]
rections may cause a long delay. pl
Beginning Dec 1 a 1 cent war rev- tv

I Stop licking Eczema
Never mind how often you have tried
and failed, you can stop burning, itching
eczema quickly by applying a little zemo
furnished by any druggist for 35c. Extra 1
largo bottle, $1.00. Healing begins the '
moment zemo ia applied. In a short time
: usually every trace of eczema, tetter,
pimples, rash, blackheads and similar
skin diseases will bo removed.
For clearing the skin and making It
vigorously healthy, always use zemo, the
penetrating, antiseptic liquid. It is not a
greasy salve and it doe3 not stain. When
others fail it is the one dependable treatment
for skin troubles of all kinds.
