Postofflce officials have determined
that when a carrier on rural free deliv
ery route finds a farmer's delivery box
stuffed full of circulars and advertising
matter , put there by traveling agents ,
lie has the United States behind him in
throwing out the stuff. The government -
ment frankly admits its inability to
cope with the advertising agents and
prevent them putting their stuff in the
boxes , but empowers the carrier to throw
it out when it fills the box or covers up
the mail. Numerous firms seek to ar
range with the carriers to deliver ad
vertising matter. This is prohibited ,
and the advertisers must pay the regu
lar rate of postage and address each
parcel to the farmer if it is to be handled
by the carrier.
