That OmaJia has taken the paiccls pout favorably Is shown by tho report of Post master Wharton to Postntattcr General lllli'lioopk fill- Ihn flrtt firtoon ,lo ' Kii.l. liesM In which close to ONMEIT is also good for sciatica.

Sloan - Boston, Mass. under tho new system, tho postofflce clerk handled &O.0G) parcels. Tho report Is mudo upon the request of tho l'ostofflco department In order that an estimate of how tho system Is work ins could be ascertained. Parcels which were mailed In Omaha and delivered locally or to addresses in Omaha amounted to 1,3,2 pieces. Tlio amount of postago used for theso pieces was S6S.ZP. The average weight for these 1,37a pieces was twelvo ounces. There wete 18,t;? Incoming parcels, which were delivered In Omaha, making a total of I4.S4S parcels delivered to residents of Omaha. Omaha people mailed 51,412 parcels which weie sent out of tho city. Tho ono pound and two ounces. The postago uscu on tncfco parcels amoiimru 10 j Tho total number of parcels ro- jielved at the OmaJia postofflec, both In coming and outgoing, reached tho grand total of 4C.2&8. Of this number SOS dis patched parcels were Insured nnd C0r par cels dcllvcicd wero Insured. This enormous amount ot business ban- I died In Omaha alone shows that the mcr- I I hunts of this city have discarded the express companies to a largo extent for the government service. Of the first fif teen days thero were two Sundays and one holldiry. which rightfully shows that this amount of business was handled In twelve working days. Although the business has been rushing, the railway mail clerks, according to As sistant Superintendent Johnston, havo not found the task burdensome. Mr. Johnston Fays he hns received but twelve com plaints during the first fifteen duys, which he considers wonderful, when the parcels post was something practically unknown to the mall clerks, and no sys tem had been arranged for tho handling of the parcels by tho clerks. Tic said bis department could handle twice as many packages as they have during the first lifteen days and still not feel tho burden very much.
