It is said that 85 per cent, of the natrons will have to sign before it will be acted upon by the Post Office officials. There is considerable opposition to the movement, because, while free delivery is wanted, the citizens seem anxious to retain their post-of- ther and, in this way, to make the -eek more profitable and pleasant.

WOMAN HUNTER Woman Hunter Shoots Her Six Squirrels on First Day- Miss Anna Xell. the only licensed ·voman hunter in Cumberland county and a resident of Allen, near Carlisle. shot six gray squirrels before 10 o'clock on the onening day of the hunt- g season. The limit is six- Miss Xeil was probably attracted to the field of sport fay the idea of a possible bargain. With the natural instinct of a woman, she "went ail - the way to Carlisle to purchase a license from the county treasurer for the sum of SI, when she could have purchased .£ from the justice of the peace in Allen township for $1 15. saving the trip from Allen to Carlisle, Bue she has her dollars worth already. Six would take McSherrystown as a mailing: place off the post-office books. AI mail would be addressed to Hanover and delivered from that place, with a ub-ofnce at McSherrystown. The delivery of mail in McSherrys own is now a tangled affair. Manj have to go to the office: people on Ox 'ord avenue receive mail from a Han over rural carrier, as does St. Joseph convent. The lower end of Main stree gets its mail from a Lit'tlestown car -ier. and. it is said, two parties resic ng in the upper part of the boroug jet their mail from Hanover city car riers. It is said there are a number of ap slicants for the post-office, when change is made, and i't is believed the free delivery will not be secured at this rime. L 4RGEST PRACTICE IN ADAMS COUNTY.
