The law prohibiting the opening of postoiilces and tho delivery of mail on Sunday has added largely to the cost of tho postal service and "ma terially lessens its efficiency." accord ing to the annual report of Daniel C. Uoper, first assistant postmaster gen eral, made public Friday. Mr. Uoper suggests that it would be in ihe interest of both the service and employes to amend the law so as to authorize Sunday work and grant compensatory time off to employes as signed to Sunday duty. The experimental delivery of mail in villages has been a failure. Mr. Koper reports, and he recommends that the service be discontinued. Ho also recommends that the compensa tion of rural mail carriers be chan?d from a mileage to an eight-hour ba es. "and that the carriers be permitted to deliver mall regardless of the distance from tho postotflce or tho corporate limits of the town." He also strongly urges that many small independent postoifices he dis continued and re-established as sta tions of ne.arby large oiliees. General approval to the operation of the eight-hour law is given by Mr. Roper. The schedules of GO.OOo em ployes have been adjusted to the law though it has been necessary in many instances cither to work clerks over time, or to employ an auxiliary force at ;'.0 cents an hour. The report estimates that COO. 000, 00 parcel post packages were handled during the hrst six months of the system's operation. Methods of handling parcel post mail have been practically standardized, with a result of a material reduction in the cost. BE OPEN SUNDAY?

A gradual increase in the price of poultry during tho past two weeks which threatens to send the cost of the bi Christmas dinner soaring higher than ever this year, brought out the largest winter crowd of econ omical housewives and salesmen to the public market Saturday of tho season. Poultry which during the past few days has been coming in slow at tho city sales place, was the chief ware of barter. At present the prices range about the 28 cent mark for Mr. Turk, dressed and ready for the cook. This is the point at which the price rested Thanksgiving time at its high mark. liut few of the dressed birds were brought to the market so far, most of them being presented alive. Every fowl sold will be good, as tho city health department is keeping careful watch for spoiled meat. The live turkeys were selling Saturday morn ing for 20 cents a pound. Chickens were selling at 13 cents live and 20 cents dressed. Geese and ducks were selling at 18 cents live weight and 26 cents dressed. Scores of Christmas trees were brought in Saturday also by farmers and many a housewife went home with a Christmas tree tucked under one arm and a live turkey under the other. Most of the Christmas trees were of the home-grown cedar va riety, although some of the regulation pino trees have been shipped in from the north. Nearly one in every ten families in the city will have a Christmas tree this year and it is estimated that over 2,300 will be sold here. In preparing her dainty Christmas dinner the cook will be able to secure cranberries at the usual price which will ranger between 10 and 15 cents, depending on the grade. Other pro visions can be secured at approxi mately the usual costs. MAY BE COLD WEATHER -IN CHRISTMAS WEEK WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.

Henrv Charb-s. abie Earliest Mails Bring Response to. News-Times. Latest Ap peal in Behalf of Babies. Scarcely had the mail man made his first delivery Saturday morning when two litle pink silk stockings, ad dressed to the "Babies Health, Strength and Happiness Fund" were returned to the News-Times office containing crisp bills for the babies' Christmas gift. By noon four more had arrived, and the prospuect is that the "pink stocking campaign" will bring in the best results of any method yet tried in the effort to raise monev for the dispensary. The first stocking to arrive, con tained a dollar bill from "A friend," and the second, $2.2f. from the office employes of the George Cutter Co. The others contained various sr-'.ras but bore no name3 of the senders. With "Health, Strength and Happi ness for the Babies" us its slogan, the "pink stocking campaign" was launched Friday afternoon by the News-Times. Its purpose is to raise the present dispensary fund to an adequate sum by Christmas day. Following a suggestion made by Miss Anna E. Coushaine, recently in the city in the interests of Epworth hospital, tho News-Times Friday sent out through the mail.M 600 cards bear insr a Dlea for the tables. On each card is a tiny pink stocking in which the contribution is to be placed and addressed to the "Boies' Health, Strength and Happiness fund", News Times office. A similar campaign conducted by Miss Coushaine in Buffalo raised $13,000 in three days for a children's hospital. What will it do for the babies of South Bend? Only $1,700 has leen raised thus far, $300 less than is required to run the dispensary one year. Yet the dispensary association hopes to build a little cottasre which will cost not less than $5,000. Cards Bear Two Pictures. The cards sent out yesterday bear two pictures, one of a tiny baby, poor and sickly, it's little head drooping to one side, it's mouth gasping and it's eyes listless the type of baby for whom the dispensary exists the oth er of a .chubby, lau?hing youngster, with life written in i'.s dimpled cheek and dancing eyes. Between the pic tures is placed the little silk stocking and around them is printed the ex planation, "Thi3 baty is puny, sick and poorly nourished. The money you place in the stocking will make her bright, chubby and healthy like this one. Help the News-Time3 to give the dispensary babies the great est gifts in the world, health, strength and happiness. Put the monev in tho stocking and address it to the 'Babies Health, strength and happiness fund,' News-Times of fice." A contribution of j;23 from the La dies Aid society of tho First Pres byterian church, the high school gift of $30, and $7.15 frm the toy con test made a substantial increase in the fund Friday. With the closing of the schools for the Christmas holldsiys. zest will be added to the toy contest, for from now until.

"You don't think you will be able to report back to the house Into to day?" asked Mann. "1 certainly do not." replied Rep.
