When the reorganisation wax effected It was In the darkest period of railroad depression nnd the mow that was expect#-*! In the company was to save the charges on the old bonds. Moat of these l#on<!* were assessed and the stocks were all heavily taxed. The Richmond Terminal shareholders had to pay 110 a shore and the Bast Tennessee common stockholders fT.g) per shore, and give up t© per rent, of their stockholders. Tin- burden was ao heavy and the Southern Railway com mon stock offered In exchange appeared so valueless that mtny holders would not pay the assessments and threw the bur den cm the reorganisation committee The rates complained of by the citliens of Danville may have been too high, hilt any man who has owned dock In a re organised corporation will bear testi mony that the process is a costly one.

Parcel* Pont Adi orated. Braklentown, Fla, Dec. 38,—Kdltor Morning News: Accepting your editorial In the Morning New* of yesterday nn "Free Delivery on Parcel* Post" as be- Ing substantially correct In lls con< lu sion*. that free delivery and the parcl* post would bring a large portion of the articles we buy In country atorea to us cheaper than local merchants could sell such article*. It seem* to me there ean be no reasonable doubt that for the rea son slated we may expect to see them es tablished at no distant day. The clan* opposed to such cheapening U no sma'l compared to the masse:) who do not only want, but will have, such change when they see the chance, that In the nature of things the change must come Any such pleading a* you mention, that certain dealer* will be driven out of bua- Inees, will not avail. The people are anxious to knock a- many "middle men" out as possible. And they are right In so doing There Is no Justice In paying men to do a thing at n high pront when others can perform the service at lea* coat to consumer- than by an old out-of date system This tendency I* In ac cordance with Ihe spirit of Ihe age, ihe cheapening of Ihe necessaries and lux uries of life. There has always been somebody to oppose every Change of Ihe kind, but such opposition never prevails, and never should. It Is through such changes that poor people now enjoy many comfort* that formerly were only In reach of the rich, and further hack w .* not even to he hod hy ihe richest. You are right, free delivery Is very pop ular with people where It ha* been tried, and It afford* an immense saving where one man can deliver mall lo a large number of people dally who woul! lose valuable lime to go for their mall Individually even once a week, and the parcel* post will naturally be desired all the more when people And there I* so much saved by not being compelled lo go from Ihelr homes for small articles that can be brought to them so much cheaper than for each one to go after them Hence, a* I have said, these change# are aure to come, and the prospect l a most gratifying one Country life will be made much more agreeable than formerly, and anything that adds to the attraction* of farm life a* com;ired with residence In towns Is a distinct gain In the wel fare of the people who we know, have often left their country homes lo Ihelr great detriment, morally and otherwise.
