The electric cars commenced carrying the mail on Monday morning, giving us greatly improved facilities. Mail for Toronto closes at 7.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m.; and mail received from Toronto at 9.15 a.m. and 7.15 p.m.—in addition to the regular G.T.R. service. This will relieve the jam at the Post Office every night to some extent as people can get the evening papers between 7.30 and 7.45. The Post Office will close at 8 o'clock now sharp.
Inspector McLeod of Toronto and a World, reporter came up on the first car with the mail service to see that everything was in working order. Although there was no word sent to postmasters till the Saturday evening previous, every mail-carrier was on hand and there was no hitch in the delivery.
The privilege of getting the Toronto mail an hour and half earlier in the morning is a convenience duly appreciate in Newmarket.
