It tvlll aid substntlally hv the solution
of the problem of the high eot of living.
In a statement today he expressed the
hone that the measure recently introduced
by Senator Bourne, chairman of the com
mlhee on postof fleet and post roads,
might be crystallised into law.
In the Judgment of the officer of the
potl service, the Bourne bill represents
the most sclentiflo and business-like plan
yet devised for a parcel post. It pro
vide for a parcel service throughout
the country both on rural route and
city carrier' route. It consolidate the
third and fourth classes of mall matter,
a reform long advocated by the post-
office department, nd raises the weight
limit of parcels to 11 pounds, which is
the limit of the International parcel
Rate on Karat Snitrt.
The rate to be charged for articles
carried in the rural route service and
city carrier service Is 6 cents for the
first pound or fraction of a pound. For
the general parcels pot ervlce, which
cover all mail transportation other than
local delivery by rural or city carrier,
graduated rate would be established
baaed oVi distances.
Six sones of distance would be estab
lished. The first would have a radial
distance of M miles from the point of
mailing; the second would Include the
area lying between SO and 200 mile; the
third, that between 200 and 00 miles; the
fourth, that between 600 and 1,000 miles;
the fifth that between 1.000 and 2,000
miles, und the sixth distances beyond
,2.000 mile. ; The rate for delivery within
the flret ione Is cents for th,i first
pound or fraction of a pound and 2 cents
fop each additional, pound or (fraction
of a, pound. The rate would Increase
for each additional tone until In the
sixth they reach a maximum of 12 cents
a pound, the rate now charged in the
international parcels post. . The rat
on the consolidated third and. fourth
class mall matter 1 fixed at 1
cent an ounce for not more -than four
ounces.. Distinctive parcels post stamps
would be provided.

Greenville, Ohio. "While attending school
at Lebanon, Ohio, in 1882, there was k small
pox scare, and we were ail vaccinated. Pre
sumably from impure virus used, I became
afflicted with boils, which
lasted for about two years,
when the affliction assumed
the form of an ecseras on my
face, the lower part of my
face being inflamed most of
the time. There would be
water-blisters rise up, and
open, and wherever the water
would touch it would burn,
and cause another one to
rise. After the blister would
open, the place would scab
over, and would burn and
Itch so as to be almost unbearable at times.
In this way the sores would spread from on
place to another, back and forth over the
whole of my upper lip and chin, and at time
the whole lower part of my foot would be a
olid sore. This condition continued for four
or five years, without getting any better, and
in fact got worse all the time, so much so that
my wife became alarmed lest it prove fatal. .
"Finally I decided to try Cutlcura Reme
dies, which I did, taking the Cuticura Resolv
ent internally, applying the Cuticura Oint
ment to the sores, and using the Cuticura Soap
for washing. In a very short time I began to
notice Improvements, and continued to use
the Cuticura Remedies until within less than
a year I was well again, and have not bad a
recurrence of the trouble since, which is over
twenty years. I have recommended Cuticura
Remedies to others ever since, and hare great
faith in them as remedies for skin diseases."
