POSTAL DELIVERING SYSTEM EXTENDED THROUGHOUT CITY
The long-expected extension of city delivery service is about to be realized as Postmaster Mims has been authorized to extend service to the following streets as soon as required improvements are made:
Portland ave., East Main st., to Eleventh st,; Queen Ann, from Rooseevelt ave., to McAndrews st., South Central ave., from 13th st. to Boyd, Park ave., from Dakota ave., to Catherine st., Catherine st., from Park ave., to King st., Dakota ave., from Newton to Peach, Beekman ave., one-half block from Dakota ave., Oak st., from West Jackson to Clark, Narreagan st.m from West Jackson to S. P right of way, Clark st., from North Central ave., to Manzanita.
Before service will be inaugurated it will be required that prospective patrons provide a suitable mail receptacle. This need not be an expensive mail box, but the post office department insists that some sort of box shall be erected for the reception of mail.
All patrons of the post office are asked to cooperate in making the service efficient by insisting that their letters be addressed to their street and number, thereby eliminating delay and assisting the postal clerks in speedy distribution.
As Christmas comes on Monday, making two holidays together, person sending Christmas packages and letters are requested to do their mailing early to avoid delay.

Don't forget the masque ball at Moose hall Wednesday evening. Admission gentleman, $.50; spectators $.25. Prizes awards for the best costumes.
Stepping on the throttle instead of the brake caused Mrs. S. A. Lockwood tor drive her car through a fence at the corner of Main and Cottage streets at six o'clock Monday evening. Mrs. Lockwood was turning from Main into Cottage street when her car picked up speed rapidly. She was unable to control it, and crashed into the fence. The car was slightly damaged. Mrs. Lockwood was not hurt.
