This advice comes in the shape of a bulletin from the postmaster- general and is of interest to every citizen, 11 follows: «)(lice of P. M. General—Shortly before January 1913, each postmaster will be furnished with one or more copies of the ofllcial parcels |iost map of tlii- I'niled States showing the unit of ar<'a in which his poslofllce Is located and the-rtghf postal zones, indicating the distance on which the parcels post rates of postage are based. These maps will be enclosed in a mailing tube and sufllcicnt copies will be sent so that at least one map will be available for each postofllce and sub-station. At the same time there will bo furnished to each postmaster a supply of copies of the ofiic- ial parcels post guide, a publication that will show the unit of area.in which every postofilce in the I'nlted States is located. T'^j guide will con tain full informatior as to its use in conjunction with the map. and will also contain the regulations, approved by the postmaster general, for the parcel post service. Copies of the parcels post map and the guide will be forwarded through postmasters to each rural, carrier. These supplies will be enclosed In a substantial linen enveloi>e. which should l)e retained by the carrier as a permanpnt receptacle. On account of the increase in the weight limit from four pounds to II iwunds it will be necftsary to supply postinasters with scales of adequate c.-fpacity. It is exj)ected that every presidential postofflce and tho majority of ofRces of the fourth class will be properly equlpiH ;d in this respect by January 1. • Tape lines, six feet in length for measuring the size of parcels post l)ackages will be furnished to all postmasters. Distinctive parcels post stamps will be issued to each postmaster. Ordinary postage stamps will not be valid for fourth class postage. . FRAXK H. HITCHCOCK. Further instructions follow: Distinctive parcels post stamps must bo used on all fourth class matter after January 1. Such matter bearing ordinary postage staiiips will bo treated as "held for postage," P{ii;cels will be mailable onjy at the ofilit's, branch offices, letters and local flamed stations, and such numbered stations as may be designated by th» postmaster. All parcels must be;:r the return card of the sender, otherwise they will not be accepted for mailing. ARE BOIH BEATEN THE DEFEAT OF THE OOTERNOR IS CONCEDED AND IS DECISIVE.
