In the alrugglc It was Impossiblo to give the money hiu;k. So back to the hotel went Kiimni. He sat down to wait. And lie watted, and waited. And after walling overlong lio went round to the police. He wanted them to investigate and. find out what had happened lo his friend. But his powers of description wore very poor and ho couldn't describe either of tho mon, who by now are undoubtedly well out of tho country, with Kllmm'B $3,000 divided evenly between them. Tho police have the most meagre doacrlption but tboy have sent out wires to all parts of the country and aro doing their best to track down tlie pair.

CONSOLIDATE COMr>ETINQ TELEPHONE SYSTEMS Washington, Aug. 7.-Postmaster General Burleson announced today that one of the lirst effects of government control of the telephones and telegraphs i)robBbly would he co-ordination or consolidation of competing aystenua whev-^ j)oa�lhle. We aie now compelled by the Food Controller to use 10% of Substitutes in all our bread and as soon as the supply of substitutes is available this percentage will be increased to 20%. The use of substitutes by the bakers is a new thing and requires considerable experimenting to find out the best method of using them, and also to find the best substitute to use. We are improving our goods all the time and today the bakers of Lethbridge are turning out a good loaf of bread, sweet, clean, nutritious and palatable. , ' These substitutes cost us considerably more than Government Standard White Flour. The Food Controller in ordering their use was not think of saving money, his only idea is to save the wheat flour so that all the Allies may have enough to go round. It is your duty as a . patriotic citizen to see that everybody obeys this order of the Food Controller and uses the required amount of substitute in their bread whether it is bakery-made, home-made or Chinese-made. The cost of doing business is rising higher all the time. Horse feed is away up, wages are going up, freight rates are up 20%, shortening, sugar, malt are all up in price and there will be another raise in coal soon. In view of these facts we can no longer sell bread at the sanie price as we have been doing so that starting on Monday, August 12th, the price of bread in Lethbridge will be as follows: RETAIL 1 Loaf.......................................... 15c 2 Loaves........................................ 25c 9 Loaves for...................................$1.00 WHOLESALE 11 Loaves for................................. $1.00 �* N. /.
