1. On and after July 1, 1906, persons of the rural delivery service will be required to display signal on their boxes when they leave mail in them for the carrier to collect, as, after that date, carriers, when serving their routes, will not be required to open and examine any mail boxes except those to which they have mail to deliver and those on which signals are displayed to indicate there is mail for carriers to collect.
2. Those patrons whose boxes are not provided with signals must attach there to some device which, when displayed, will plainly show passing carriers there is mail to be collected. It is not necessary that such devices shall be either complicated or costly; a very simple arrangement will answer the purpose.
