Conditions That Must be Com
; plied Made Known.
People generally know that the new
parcels post arrangement Is to go into
effect at the tirst of the' year, but It
is a safe guess that not one In ten of
the Herald readers have given more
than a passing thought to the matter
therefore do not know about the nec
essary steps to be taken.
In the first pla'e it is provided
"that hereafter founh-elass mail mat
ter shall embrace all other matter,
including faim and factory products,
not now embraced by law in either
the tirst, second or third class, not
exceeding eleven pounds in weight,
nor greater in size than seventy-two
inches in length and girth combined
nor In iorm or kind likely to injure
the person or any postal employe or
damage the mall equipment or other
mail matter ann not of a character
perishable within a period reasonably
required for transportation aud de
livery." The postage rate Is arranged ac
cording to both weight of package
and distanca s ime Is to be carried,
ranging from o cents for 1 pound in
the local territory to $1.32 for 11
pounds for a distance exceeding 1800
miles. "Packages will be delivered
