The postmaster general has issued a notice that all rural mail carriers have the right of way on all country roads and that all other carriages or conveyances must surrender the right of way to the rural carriers. This order was issued as a result of numerous complaints on the part of the carriers who were not able to deliver their mail in the specified time because carriages and conveyances which they met refused to give them the right of way mid often made it necessary for them to drive slower or to wait until the road was clear before they could proceed. A fine will be charged to all who in any way interfere with the speedy delivery of the rural mail, and as a carrier is also fined and sometimes deposed for late delivery, he will no doubt see to it that any person responsible for his delay will bear the punishment instead of himself.

Good bye old Evergreen, good bye,

As in the cold damp earth you lie,

I feel within a spasm of pain.

And wonder if we'll meet again.

Your life alas, was brief and sad,

The officers you had were bad,

But defying fate, you lived to know

That beside a cow, a horse was slow.

Your editor, a chump was he,

As big a man will ever see.

He it was who laid you low.

Gave you the last and fatal blow.

Yea, while you were in your prime

He did your pearly form begrime.

With his vile jokes and stories cheap,

Upon your head did ignominy heap.

But may your rest be calm and sweet,

While we clean out this yellow sheet.

When I grow old and come to die,

By the "Evergreen Society" let me lie.  C. D.
