SHERLOCK BUILDING A Statement to Our Cus- tomers from the Bakers V of Lethbridge We are 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 The use of sub- stitutes by the bakers is a new thing and requires considerable ex- perimenting 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. j These substitutes cost us considerably, more than Government Standard White Flour. The Food Controller in ordering their Use was not thinking of saving money, his only idea is to save wheat flour so that all the Allies may have enough to 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 oakery-made, home-made or Chinese-made. The cost of doing business is rising higher ail the time. Horse feed is away up, wages are going up, freight rates are up shorten- ing, sugar, malt are all up in price and there wiii be another raise in coal soon. In view of we can no longer sell bread at the same price as we doing so that startingxm Monday, Aug- ust 12lh, the price of bread in Lethbridge will be as follows: RETAIL 2 25c 9 Loaves WHOLESALE 11 Loaves N.
