Our stock of Winter fabrics is exceptionally fine in cheviots and worsteds of most taking patterns and weaves. The Quality Shop WILL M. SELIGMAN The Cash Tailor About four thousand pieces of parcel post mail were received at the Gettysburg post office from Saturday to Christmas Day, inclusive. It was all handled promptly and on Thursday afternoon nor one piece of unJei'vered mail remained in the ofice. G.jtt; sburg was in striking contract to s me othei towns in this respect and the puci-ess- ful handling of the big' mail, as well as an equally large amoun: outgoing letters, cards and parcels, is a matter of which the local post office force is justly proud. John Slaybaugh, the parcel post man, delivered all of the mail himsel' until last Tuesday when Charles Myers Jr. was pressed into service to assist him. On Wednesday Postmaster Beales, following instructions from Washington, pressed into service the rural mail carriers with their teams and on the last two mornings 'they made numerous deliveries about town before starting to cover their regular routes. The parcel wagon made eight trips a day, which covered the entire town twice, so 'chat people not only got the parcels intended for them but got them promptly. While this delivering was being done the clerks at the office were handling a tremendous amount of outward bound packages and the office saw rapid work. The rural carriers had their wagons loaded Vo the limit,when they covered their routes Wednesday and Thursday but the county people as well as those in town got their mail promptly. While Gettysburg was getting away with this mail, other places were tied up and the result of this is being felt now. This morning the belated mail started to arrive. Parcels from a distance are" coming in a day or two late and many people will get their Christmas gift? after the regular celebration has passed. In addition to the big parcel business the number of postcards and small remembrance cards was greater than ever before. The small price at which these are sold attracted many buyers and Uie mail carried hundreds of them daily through uie local office. The odd sizes of the envelopes which contained these cards caused them to be considerable of a nuisance but the employees of Uncle Sam were sufficiently imbued with ine Christmas spirit not to mind this and all went well.

Recently there was sent throughout a part of Franklin and Adams counties for signatures, a petition asking the state game commission to prohibit the killing of deer in the two counties mentioned for a period of live years. It was alleged that the male deer were being exterminated by the hunters during the open season each fall. The petition was signed by about 200 men, it is said. j To counteract 'the effect of this, » paper was circulated throughout this same section of country containing the protest of h u n t e r s and others again*!, this closed season of five years for deer. 1'c has received more thau 700 signatures and 1000 could have been procured had there been sufficient ime, it is said. The protestants against this lonp, losed season say there are more deer n ever in the mountain and that here is no necessity for cutting off he annual hunting season. Pennsylvania's bear hunting season vill close next Wednesday night as ne of the most disappointing known n years, unless snow falls and the veather becomes much colder.
