Domestic mail matter, that is, mail
matter sent in the mails from some post
office within the United States to some
other post office within the same, is di-
vided into four classes, as follows:

First-Class Matter.


Written matter, namely letters^ postal
cards, and all matter wholly or partly in
writing, whether sealed or unsealed — ex-
cept as provided below — and all matter,
sealed or otherwise, closed against in-
spection, is of the first class.

Postal Cards — No printing or writing
other than the address allowable upon
the address siae; nor may anything ex-
cept an address label be pasted or attach-
ed to any postal cards. The words "to be
called for," or any proper description of
the person or place addressed may be
written or piinted thereon as part of the
address. Any other writing, mark or seal
placed on the address side renders it un-
mailable except at letter rates.

Private Mailing cards — Mailing cards
other than government postal cards may
b<- sent through the mails at the rate of
one cent apiece, payable by stamps to be
affixed by the sender. Written messages
may be sent on these cards when they
are made to conform to the following re-
strictions: Such cards must be approxi-
mately of same form, auality and weight
as the stamped postal cards now in gen-
eral use. not exceeding 31/. bv .5% inches
nor less than 2 15-16 by 4 15-16 inches!
The color of the cards mav be white
cream, light gray, or shade of the go-'ern-
ment card. The card must bear these
words m print on the addressed side-
"Post Card." There may be on the mes-
sage or address side advertisements, il-
lustrations, or other matter printed in
black or colors. Ordinai-y mailing cards
when the message is entirely in printing'
are not restricted to the above conditions'.
They may be of any size, but are not en-
titled to the words "Post Card."

Second-Class Matter.

Second-class matter is of two kinds
First, that sent by publishers or news
agents; second, that sent bv other than
publishers or news agents.

^^"i XT^ S.^T.^?c^^^G^ TO PUBLISHERS


Mailable matter of the second-class em-
braces all newspapers and other periodi-
cal publications which are Issued at stated
mtei-vals and are within the conditions
named in the statute.


First — It must be regularly issued at
stated intervals, as frequently as four
times a. year, and bear a date of issue
and be numbered consecutively.

Second — It must be issued from a
known office of publication.

Third — It must be formed of printed
I'aper sheets, without board, leather, cloth
or other substantial binding, such as dis-
tinguish printed books for preservation
from periodical publications.

Fourth — It must be originated and pub-
lished for the dissemination of informa-
tion of a public character, or devoted to
literature, the sciences, arts, or some
special industiy, and having a legitimate
list of subscirbers.

What is Permissable to Be Written or
Piinted — The name and address of the
person to whom the matter shall be sent;
index figures of subscription book, either
piinted or written; the printed or writ-
ten name and adress of the publisher or
sender, or both, and written or printed
words or figures, or both, indicating the
date on which the subscription to such
matter will end; the correction of any
t>pographical error; a mark, except writ-
ten or printed words, to designate a word
ot passage to which it is desired to call
attention; the words "sample copy," or
"marked copy;" and publishers and news
agents may enclose in their publication,
bills, receipts and orders for subscription

Third Class — Printed Matter


Piinted Matter — Is defined to be the re-
production upon paper by any process ex-
cept that of handwriting, or by the type-
writer, of any words, letters, character?,
figures, or images, or of any combination
thereof, not having the character of an
actual personal correspondence. Seeds,
bulbs and scions are included in third-
class matter. •

Further Points of Definition— Repro-
ductions from originals, produced by mim-
eograph or similar mechanical process,
easv of recognition, are entitled to pass
in the mails in unsealed envelopes as
third-class matter, when mailed at the
pest office window in numbers of at least
twenty identical copies.

Proof sheets and corrected proof sheets
and manuscript copy accompanying the
same are rated as third-class matter.

Permissible Writing— Upon matter of
the third class, or upon wrapper or envel-
ope inclosing the same, or the tag or label
attached thereto, the sender may write
bis- own name, occupation and residence
or business address, preceded by the word
••from," and may make marks other than
by written or printed words to call atten-
tion to any word or passage in the text,
and mav correct any typographical error.

cover of anv book or printed matter of tae



thiitl class a simple manuscript dedication
or inscription not of tlie nature of a per-
sonal correspondence. Upon the wrapper
or envelope of third-class matter mailable
as third class, there must be left on the
address side space sufficent for a legible
address and necessary stamps.

Fourth Class — Mlscellanous Matter.

braces all matter not embi-aced in thj

deface or otherwise damage the contents
of the mail bag or harm the persons of
any one engaged in the postal service, and

each package thereof, except in case of
single books weighing in excess of tha:

Examination— All matter of the fourth
class shall be subject to examination.

How Enclosed — Articles of merchandise
must be wrapped or enclosed in such .a.
manner that their character can be easily
ascertained. In the case of such articled
as medicine, powders, tobacco, cigars,
fancy soaps and the like, postmasters
will accept them when mailed in their
original wrappers and so sealed or en-
closed as to properly protect the articles,
so that each package in its simplest mer-
cantile form or unit of measure may be

Permissible Writing or Printing Upon

package of fourth-class matter prepaid at
the proper rate for that class, the sender
may enclose any mailable third-class mat-
ter, and may write upon me wrapper or
