The farmers seem to be unammous for rural free delivery and are inoving to get an experimental ronte established at Ann Arbor. Tne Argns has kept them posted as to other cities which are getting this accornrnodatiou aud the recent interviews with the merchants here, published iu this paper, showing that they were not opposed to the project were received with delight. Dr. W. W. Nicuols has been circulati├╝g a petition this week for the establishmeut of rural mail dslivery here. He has seen every resident ou the Geddes road as far as Blake's and on the north river road as far as Smith Botsford. On the middle Ypsiianti road ne has iatprviewed every farmer who gets bis mail at Aiiu Arbor, a little more than four miles oat. Everyone within this limit has signed, without exceptiou. He thinks this would make a route of about 20 miles. Any move in the directioa of securiug rural mail delivery must be made quickly bef├│te the governmeut appropriation is exhausted.
