A petition was last week sent to Washington for a free delivcrv route from this office to Westminster West and East Pu'ney taking in a circuit of about 25 miles and putting tho mail at the door of most of t lie farmers or else in boxes within much easier reach than the town office. Some of the East Putney patrons have petitioned against it s iying they are better served now than they would be under the new system, claiming that by going to the office they can have four mails a dnv while under the delivery they would only get one each day. That may be all right for those within a few steps of the office at East Putney or Putney Falls, but what farmer can spend time to go the office oftener than once a day? Not even that in busy times. By having the rural delivery, the mail woul 1 generally be no later than when people must go for it themselves. This is in the line of progression, and it is hoped that the few who might be slighily inconvenienced will not pre vail against the many who would be benefited. GUILFORD.

I have fre quently known physicians to give Lydia E.Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound to womensufferingwith the most serious complications of ovarian troubles, falling of the womb, leucorrhoea, and other disorders. They would as a rule put the Compound in regular medicine bottles and label it Tonic,' or other names, but I knew it was your Com pound, and have seen them fill it in prescription bottles. I have never seen anything but happy results from its use; inflammation and ulceration has been relieved and cured in a few weeks, especially where your Sanative Wash has been applied also. I feel it but due to you to give proper credit for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound ; I have great faith in it and often recommend it to others."
