Route No. 1 is served by Car

north and south of Main street
which is west of Sixth street.

Route No. 3 is served by Car

The service began yesterday
and for a time it will be largely
experimental. It will require
some time for the carriers to
familiarize themselves with their
routes and after that the service
can only be perfected by the
people co-operating with the de
partment in having their mail
addressed to their street and
number. For the present the
carriers will endeavor to make
two trips per day and all sec

Great Excursion Friday.
The Vardaman Club of this
city was greatly disappointed
that they were not able to take
the Green wood trip yesterday.
The cause of the postponement
was the fact that the Southern
Railway had an excursion into
Birmingham on Monday and all
of the road's extra equipment in
the way of rolling stock was
used in this trip. For that rea
son the road was compelled to
refuse to furnish a train for the
Vardaman enthusiasts greatly to
their chagrin and disappoint
ment. All arrangements have been
made for the Greenwood trip on
Friday next. A special train will
leave this city on that day at
8:30 o'clock in the morning and
the return will be made m the
afternoon. The fare for the
round trip will be between $1.50
and $2.00 and it will be furnished
at cost to all who go. A gala
time is promised in Greenwood
and a speech from Maj. Varda
man and others is assured, while
music and other entertaining
features are promised.
The Vardaman men of the
county are invited to take this
trip with the Vardaman support
ers of this city. Ample accomo
dations will be furnished and a
delightful run to the city in the
delta and a pleasant return is as
sured. White's Cream Vermifuge is essen
