j Talks on Saving
There are many persons who re-
fuse to believe that the thrift cam-
paign being carried on by the gov-
ernment applies to them. They real-
ize that they must save food, but
>they cannot see why they need to
save anything else, provided that
they have plenty of money left af-
ter buying Liberty Bonds. Some say,
"Wages are high now, and I have
more money than I ever had before,
Why shouldn't I enjoy it?"
In a previous talk in this series,
one answer to this question was giv-
en—namely, the effect on prices of
-careless spending. If people spend
a good deal of money, thus creating
a large demand for goods, prices will
go up: the poor will suffer, and the
government, which _buys a good
many of its supplies in the market
like any other customer, will have
to pay higher prices than it would
have to pay if some citizens were less
Another reason why wo should not
fc'iy ar.ytliifg except actual necessi-
ties, no matter how much money we
•may have, lies in the fact that most
Of the things which we would be like-
5y to buy are needed by the govern-
ment; or, rather, the materials which
>«nU>r into them are needed. "In the
■army camps soldiers are shivering
not becausg. the government has not
ordered sufficient clothing for them,
fcut because too many of us, buying
serge dresses, and fancy sweaters, or
other woolen goods as usual, have
consumed the wool supply."—(Edith
-J. R. Isaacs, Good Housekeeping,
Wool is needed for clothing for the
army, and it is no secret that the
quality of our uniforms is not so high
as could be desired. It CRnnot b;
raised unless more wool is available
and wool will not be available unless
we are willing to do without it. "Bui
why can't I buy silk, or linen, or cot-
ton?' says someone. "Why must
I save on those?" Cotton and 1 inen
are desperately needed, for muni-
tions, for bandages, for aeroplanes
Some of the base hospitals have to
boil bandages which have been taken
<off the worst wounds, and use them
over and over, instead of burning
them. The problem for us, then, is
not whether we can afford cotton
•dresses or shirts or surplus under-
wear. but whether we can possibly do
without them in order to release cot-
ton for the use of those who need
it more than we do. Even silk is
meedtd to a large extent, in manufac-
turing certain kinds of munitions,
and it is being considered for use in
Every kind of metal, as well as
Vlass, rubber and leather in all forms,
gasoline, medicine oils, and a thous-
and cne other materials used
every day, will be found in the gov-
•arrmifiats list of goods having mili-
tary vtJbe. If we insist upon buying
cand consuming these things, o mat-
*cer haw easily we can afford them, we
are hindering the nation in its en-
•deavor to secure supplies as abun-
dantly as possible.—M. E. O.-B.

Tho the stove season has just started, our en-
tire line of heating stoves, cook stoves and steel ranges
was placed on sale Monday, September 16. This is in ac-
cordance with our general plan of reducing our entire
sock, but we are going to make a special drive on
stoves. Our stock is very complete and it is fortunate
for our customers that we can quote very attractive
prices in the face of present high prices.
HOT BLAST HEATERS AND HIGH
It is generally conceded that the Beckwith Round
Oak is the highest grade stove made. Beckwith stoves
are genuine fuel savers and will last for years. The
purchase of one permanently settles the stove problem.
We have them priced to sell. Look them over-
GENUINE BECKWITH ROUND OAK
We also have a large stock of the old reliable Hot
Blast Heaters. They are also fuel savers and for a
moderate priced stove cannot be duplicated.
CAST COOK STOVES AND RANGES
We have cook stoves of every size and description.
In fact we have a cook stove for every pocketbook. Dur
prices will surprise you. Never again while the pres-
ent war conditions last will you be able to buy a cook
stove for the price we are asking.
ONE THOUSAND JOINTS OF STOVE
We will close out this pipe at 23 cents a joint. This
is pipe we carried over. The same grade pipe which we
have enroute, will sell for 35 cents. Order earlv.

A Problem in Saving
for business men
IF a piece of machinery at $40 lasts
twice as long as another at $25,
which is the most economical?
Nothing to it, of course; that's why
we wonder why some men don't see
the economy in paying a little more
to get the saving in good clothes.
