Notice to Postmasters.
When a newspaper remains un
called for at a postoffice by the
person to whom it is addressed
it is the duty of the postmaster
to notify the publisher, giving
the reason for non-delivery. We
call the attention of postmasters
to this law because it frequently
happens in the absence of in
struction that a publisher contin
ues to send a paper to a person
at a postoflce after that person
has gone to another place. The
observance by postmasters of tho
postal regulations in this matter
will confer a favor on us as well
as the subscribers to the paper.
