A communication of  this kind is gratefully received at  this olbce, as it enables us to keep a  check 0n our delivery boys, and in  future if any subscriber has a complaint to make, we would appreciate  same being made direct to the oflice,  as in that case the matter can be  inodicd. W-3 have established a rule  that any regular delivery boy seen  allowing "helpers" to deliver his pa-J^  peas will be dismissed, but in sp'it-"  of this, the boys will, especially on  the hill, give some of their papers  to O'lher boys to deliver. Unless j.  complaint is laid at the office, or to  some one connected with thc stab,  we have no weay of knowinb when  a paper is not regularly delivered as  every l.oy lea es the oflice with, his  full number. While none of then)  are bad boys, they are at times care  less, and like otheis, need a Iitt 1- ���������  watching. The letter referred to is  as follows:  Ladysmith, B.C., April  10,  PlOti.
