We hear considerable complaint
about the way mail is handled at Thomas
ville P. O. Some of our subscribers fail
to get their, papers regularly. Whether
it is the fault of the Post-master we do
not know, but propose to find out. We

is caused by persons taking mail from
the offioo for their neighbors and failing
to deliver it promptly.

In tiinei past we repeatedly called
attention through the columns of the
Chief, to the necessity of planting shado
trees, if property owners desired to en
hance the value of their property as well
as to make the town a desirable and
comfortable place -to live. Nothing will
make a town more inviting and pleasant
than to have its streets lined with shade
trees, and there is nothing, perhaps,
that will add more to the pleasure and
comforts of home, than to have a plenty
of nice and thrifty growing trees, besides
if you want to sell, you can always get
enough more for your property to pay
you tenfold for the trouble and expense
of careing for the trees. Take for ex
ample, the home of John G. Potter six
years ago he planted a row of trees
around his lots, tho cost of planting, and
care ot trees did not exceed fb.uu.
What is the result he has the most
pleasant place to live, in town, and
should he desire to sell his property ha
could get at least '$200 more for it on
account of the trees which cost him
$6,00. Plant trees, and "don't you for

Yours received; in reply would say
you can rely on the Osborne Self-binding
Harvester being the best machine in the
market. I cut 100 acres with mine in
1878 at a coat of 25 to 30 cents per acre
for wire; never had any trouble what
ever. It will bind every, time either
tight or loose, large or small just as you
want. The bands do not interfere with
threshing in any way. Yours truly,
