The attention of the city council was called to the fact that many houses in this city are without street numbers. William Bostian, postmaster, was quoted as saying that the privilege of free mail delivery would not be accorded to such houses. He also said that the houses had no receptacle in which to deposit mail. Numbers are to be added to the houses, even if painted on themselves, and a receptacle provided, even if it’s a cigar box to answer the purpose.
