When he was sick he got a doctor; when he wants trouble, he lets someone else make it for him; when he wanted a newspaper he got the Herald, and when he wants to fly he'll wait till the Lord fixes him up a pair of wings or attend an aviation meet and go up with some aviator who under stand his business better than an egotistical novice can teach him.

If there is one " improvement " that has struck Oakley in the past year that the town would be a damd sight better without, if all patrons are treated as the Herald, that "im provement" was the installation of the branch of the American express company here. Several times a package to the Herald through this company, containing identically the same enclosure has cost from 25c to 50 more one time than another. The Western Newspaper Union mana ger at Salt Lake, in answer to re peated complaint from the Herald, has assured us authoritatively that the express rate from Salt Lake to Oakley was 4 l-2c per pound. We have been charged, variously, from 4 1-2 to 20c per pound. This week, on a rush order, we had shipped from Salt Lake 500 sheets 8x10 1-2 in. Overland bond, and 500 sheets 6x9 in, Westlake bond. The whole could not possibly have weighed ten pounds, but the express charge was one dollar—ten cents more than the price of the stock ! Every business house in this town is probably treated to like extortion, and the only way to avoid it is to have future consignment» shipped by freight> until the advent of the p arce l s post. Wherever the fault H es this extortion must be stopped, and it shall for the Herald, for express shall be ordered by the pres management. It is freight con signment and boost for a parcels post for the writer hereafter. What a Famous Editor Sar*.
