The Record of Six Months. With the first of January six months of free delivery elapsed in our city, and that our readers may know and judge something of the work the various mail carriers have done, we give the following statistics:
The greatest number of letters delivered in any one month was by Frank O'Hearn in December, 12,810. The greatest number of papers and parcels delivered was by the same carrier in the same month, 9,458. It will be noticed that the totals for the months show a gradual increase on everything except on papers collected. It is hoped that in the course of time the government will see its way clear to give the people the benefit of free delivery who really need it. In order to do this at least two more carriers will be necessary.
