e BOY SHOT. oti
On Sunday afternoon John Braai,n
d the 14-year-old son of John J. Braai of
y Pacific avenue, was shot in the leg
with a rifle by a young boy by the
, name of Shirley Mannering. who is Cr
' also a resident of that vicinity.
re According to the story of the Braai
boy, young Mannering was throwing m
L, sand at Braai and Braai returned the
same kind of treatment. Mannering
'r then told Braai that he would shoot m
at him; he then went for his rifle and in
flicted a wound in the leg, just below a1
of the knee. A peculiar coincidence of
s. the shooting was that young Braai's
little brother was standing nearby and ne
of the bullet passed through his trousers a'
ys but did not touch his flesh. The bul- be
ir. let went through the fence and struck a
Ig young Braas in the leg. The bullet Pw
was extracted by Dr. Jno. A. Rupp, di
ert who attended the patient, and at once le
nd administered antitoxin. cl
It is also reported that the Manner- 01
er ing boy, on the same evening, shot am
negro living in that neighborhood. The
na negro was shot in the abdomen.
Y oung Braai's injuries are not serl
at otis, unless complications should set t:

by Postmaster General Hitchcock, the
maximum rate of 12 cents a pound ap

e any point in Canada, Mexico, Cuba and

ted District Postage Stamps.
u In the opinion of the postal experts zx
Uth- the new service will be the most gi- p
wn gantic transportation proposition ever ti
undertaken by the government. The tl
of service will extend over more than 1,- n
his 435,000 miles of transportation lines, a
de- including 293,899 miles of railways, fi
ers 164,399 miles of star routes, 29,283
Ing miles of steamboat lines and 1,007,772 tI
Ity miles of rural mail routes.
aur For parcel post matter, a distinctive Il
set of postage stamps has been pro
vided. These distinctive stamps must e
be used for all parcel post matter. If
the packages bear ordinary postage d
is stamps they will'be held for postage.
S' The drafting of regulations to gov
ac- ern matter transmitted by parcel post
hip was personally directed by Postmaster
the General Hitchcock. One of these reg
re- ulations is that each parcel mailed
ip's must bear on its face the name and
in address of the sender preceded by the
av- word "from." Parcels intended for
rhe dispatch must be mailed at a postofice,
be- branch postofilce, named or letter sta
out tion of such numbered station as may
The be designated by the postmaster. They
1 a must not be placed inn or upon letter I
his boxes or packages boxes located in
un- city streets. They may be given, how
veil ever, to any rural or star route car
ork rier. Parcels must not be sealed and
adit must be so prepared as to permit of
Ed. easy examination. Such parcels as
ist- contain two or more classes of mail
Ris, matter are chargeable with postage at
on the rate prescribed for the iher
All matter which is declared unmail
ablt by law will be unmailable as par
cll post matter. This includes ob
t scene, indecent and immoral matter,
intoxicating liquors, poisons, live ani
mrals, birds and poultry, inflammable
articles and such things as raw hides
or pelts or other articles having a bad
odor. The regulations prescribe mi
nutely the methods to be used in pack
ing parcels. Liquids and oils, paste
and salves, sharp instruments, ink,
powder, pepper and snuff must be
placed in watertight receptacles and
in many instances surrounded by ab
sorbent material to prevent damage to
s other mall matter.
e Articles such as millinery, toys, mu
sical instruments and glassware must
be labeled "fragile."
e One of the interesting features of
the regulations concerns perishable
articles. In th's class are placed but
ter, lard, fish, fresh meats, dressed
' fowls, vegetables and fruits and ber
h ries. Provision is made for carrying
d almost every article produced on the
c' farm except live animals and live
it fowls. In the local zone little packing
s is required. Within the first zone
to that is. for a shipment of 50 miles-all
al these articles must be inclosed in an
inner cover and in a strong outer cov
st er of wood, metal or heavy corrugated
of pasteboard, and so wrapped that noth
Id Ing can escape from the package.
is It has been demonstrated to the sat
s- isfaction of Postmaster General Hitch
?d cock that eggs can be transported
n- safely by parcel post. Of course, they
ie may not be mailed in paper bags, but
in must be inclosed in proper containers.
el Undeliverable Packages.
s; Parcels which can not be delivered
00 will take their course through the dead
h, letter office. If a parcel should con
s' tain matter that, in course of Its trans
Id portation, becomes offensive, or in
jurious to health, it may be destroyed
er by the postmaster. Undeliverable per
ad ishable matter which does not become
ay offensive or injurious to health may
ed be turned over to local municipal au
11 thorities to be distributed to hospitals,
in asylums or other similar institutions.
ed Provision is made in the law for the
a indemnification of shippers for lost
'es packages. The law prescribes that by
all insurance the actual value of lost pack
ages will be given to the senders. Post
master General Hitchcock has devised
a unique system for handling insured
is parcels, consisting of a shipping tag
- printed with two coupons, one of which
is torn off and given to the sender, the
second retained by the postmaster at
the sending office, the tag itself being
ch attached to the parcel and bearing the
name and address of the person to
whom it is to be delivered. The fee
ate for this insurance is 10 cents. In the
event of loss the government will pay
any the actual value of the contents of the -
ad-package not exceeding $50.
