We have in the town of Barrie a delivery system in what is called the old part of the town. A portion of the present town of Barrie was called at one

time Allandale, and there is a post office there. It is now all one town, and I understand that if a letter is dropped somewhere midway between Barrie and Allandale, and It happens to be carried into Barrie, though it is directed to Allandale, then the drop letter rate won't apply, it will have to be paid for the same as if sent outside the town. I think that is hardly fair. Where the whole district is practically one town within a radius of a mile, there should be only one rate.
