It Is probable that there was ae de
partment of any business In Omaha that
shewed a greater Increase last rear tban
tho railroad end of the parcel post. While
the returns are net all complete, it Is
estimated that the business for Christmas
week was 66 per cent creator than dur
ing the corresponding period of one year
go. The real clearing house for the rail--road
parrel poet mall of Nebraska Is the .
station at the Burlington passenger depot.
There, during the six days preceding
Christmas the receipts averaged 20,000 per
day. One day 1.400 sacks, averaging six
teen packages each, were handled. Dur
ing the week forty men were employed,
they working In shifts of eight hour"
each, thus a force being on duty each
hour of the day.
Three solid trains, each loaded with
mall, came each day over the Burling
ton, and one duy an extra train of twenty
cars was added. At the Burlington depot,
where the parcel post mall waa trans
ferred to and from the other roads, the
sacks end packages wsre routed and sent
on their way. And one of the most le
markable things about the handling -of
this mall was the rapidity with which It
was gotten out of the way. Every ehlft
cleaned up the mail arriving en its time,
o that when new shifts went on duty
the men found nothing to handle, or work
over except mall that came In or went
out on their own time.
Hiini wai jiaaaiee.
Though cramped for space to handle the
vast increass In the mall, the officials
feel that they got away with the business
in good shape. Fowls, meats and perish
able stuff that came or went had special
attention and was kept la cool rooms
until sent out If mall of this character
arrived and was consigned to parties -within
the Omaha free delivery district.
