The practice of sending currency or silver in a
letter is always dangerous. Thousands of dollars
are losl annually in this manner.
The better way is to buy a bank draft. If the
draft is lost, your money is not.
We issue drafts which arc payable at par any
place in the I'. S. If a draft is lost in transit we
issue a duplicate without any red-tape or delays.

Hardship on Carriers.
l'osttnaster Geo. S. McOravey has
received the following letter from the
Postofflce department, division of
rural delivery, which is given public
ity for the benefit of the rural deliv
ery service in Laurens county.
December 10, 1009.
From a recent count made by rural
carriers in one of the counties in the
state of New York of coins deposited
by patrons in their boxes for the pur
chase of stamp supplies, it was found
that each carrier in the county was
collecting an average of US one-cent (
coins each week. This average ap- |
plied to all the routes In operation
throughout the country would give
the enormous total ofabout 300,000,- \
000 one-cent coins.
As most of these coins are depos
ited loose In boxes, it is desirable that
you and the rural carriers, in a tact
ful and polite way, put forth your
best efforts to induce patrons to pro
vide themselves with stamp supplies
In advance of their needs, and to equip
their boxes with suitable coin-holding
receptacles. It should be explained
to patrons that the picking of loose
coins from boxes not only results in
needless hardship and suffering to
carriers in winter weather, delays the
delivery and collection of the mails,
but frequently results In actual money
loss to the carriers, for If, in collect- 1
lug coins from boxes, they drop them
Into the snow or on the ground with- ,
out recovery, they are required to
replace the amount out of their own
if it can be done without expense
to the Department, announcement of
the foregoing should be made in your
