than a fine to compel these crim
inals to obey the law. A few
weeks or months behind the bars
would be a better remedy.

To the Patrons of Rural Free Delivery , Falls City , Neb.--
Pursuant to recent orders from the Post Office Department , box
holders are required to have their box number and name plainly
and durably Inscribed on the outside of their mall box. If you have
not already done so , or if you have and for any reason the same has
been obliterated or erased , kindly have your name and box number
Inscribed thereon , in a conspicuous place.
I Would suggest that you direct your correspondents to Include
route and box number In their addresses.
At the suggestion of the Fourth Assistant Postmaster General I
desire to call attention to the practice of some patrons , of placing
loose coins in their boxes each time they desire to dispatch letters ,
Instead of supplying themselves with postage in advance of their
needs. The practice imposes undue hardship on rural carriers , in
removing loose coins from boxes , and delays them In the service of
their routes. You are therefore urgently requested to provide and
keep on hand a supply of stamps , consistent with and In advance ol
your needs. It is also very desirable that rural patrons place in
their mail boxes , small detachable cups of wood or tin , In which to
place coins when necessary in purchasing supplies of stamps.
G. J. CROOK , Postmaster.
Money otten lies idle awaiting opportunity for invest
ment , but these opportunities do not come every day , or

be earning something , and it can , if placed m this bank.
Will explain it to you on application.
