O � ? ? ? FOOD BOARD FLASHES ? ? FOR FEMININE FOLK ? Are you keei)iug down your personal consumption of sugar?And furthermore, are you getting into the liabit of using brown sugar wherever possible? The reason for this is that in order to got the most efficient economic results from the refining of sugar about 30 per cent, of the yellow sugar has to be produced along with tho white. Tho British ration is 2 pounds a month. In Franco It is about I pound II month and in Italy 10- ounces. In view of this, it should surelj' be an easy mat-tor for Canadians to keep strictly to what is asked of them. {, c. ? > �; ; > > : ? > FORESTERS' PICNIC m in the Ctt^ Cburcbcs ? ? ? ? > ? > ?;> > : ? > > ?

Some day when tho long, hot hours have been choked with worry and disappointment; when your feet ache, your head hurts, and tho oven won't work, you may close your eyes and have a vision: Behold it is summer! But hew din'erent. Tho sun shines, the sky Is cloudless, the air like wine. You are swaying, gently swaying back and forth in the hammock under the fragrant apple blossoms. After a while the bird's song and the soft breeze fill you with desire for action. At once you are in the old swing, your cheeks glowing, your hair 'flying, and- tho swing swishing through the air under the impetus of swelling young muscles. Then you dash away with fishing polo for the gurgling stream in the pasture. ."Vll at onco the odor of burning food recoils you to urgent duties, the vision vanishes, but something lingers. Your mind is no longer on sordifl things. Joy and sunshine beckon >'ou to a change of scene. Put your worries uway with tho supper dishes and see if it cannot bo arranged, Ot course, magic carpets are out of date, and if you could you would not give up what you now hiivo and go back to your childhood, but you can got out of the rut for u while. It la a business investment. With a little intelligent planning. In which the whole family takes part, each member, can have a share In some restful outing and return refreshed and re\i([y to tackle the dally tasks, liko well oiled and perfectly adjusted machines. Never in this generation has the nood been so great. Wo have been laboring along under undreamed of burdens, every nerve strained to the breaking point, and oven tho most robust cannot livo up to the highest offl-cioucy mouth after month without ro-udjuBlraent. It is not unpatriotic to take a vacation. U Is common sense. It Is only hysteria which keeps people grinding away until they are neither eltlctont jjor rational. Karly In the war Canada realized that sho must not only take care of her lighters In Flandors but that the fighters ot homo-tho men behind the men behind the guns- must be kept ni and she has kept the recreation controa at home going full blast. Tho army must rest to bo olll-dent; tho same thing applies to those at home. The courage ot tho nation Is quickly refloctoil on tho firing lino.

It will pay you to read them every Day, for they tell you where to buy Quality Goods at lowest of Low Prices, and where the Seal of Economy guarantees values such as only a big unloading Sale could give you this year of rising costs FIRST let U.S .siy "Thank You." FOR the most liberal patronage on Saturday WE did a gratifying amount of business AND Thousands of people went away "HAPPY" in the thought that.they had at last STRUCK ont^ "genuine sale" and one that had EVERY bargain on sale, every bargain on displa\' AS ADVERTISED. SATURDAY was "some day." BARGAINS must surely have been our middle name. TALK about ciowds-it was a whole army- MY there suieiy was an awful jam all day. IT was just swarming humanity turned loose. ONE woman said it was-- AND it was c\m worse than that. ONE woman fainted in the morning rush, ANOTHER \voman lost her husband, (MAYBE it was done on purpose.) A COUPLE of otiier ladies lost their kids. (SUPPOSE ihev had plenty more at home.) ANYHOW they' finally found 'em IN among the Men's Collars at 6 for 50c. THERE were a few trivial disturbances SUCH as three or four people trying to buv THE SAME $2.00 shirt for 95c at the same time, AND usually the woman that could talk fastest WON OUT-and copped the prize bargains. I was on the door all day, HUNDREDS of people remarked to me. '-'WELL-This is a real genuine sale," AND I never heard a kick ALTHOUGH we were selling $7.00 Kicks for $4.50, AND $6.00 all leather work boots at $3.85, AND fine dress shoes with Neolin soles and rubber heels at $5.95, THAT you used to pay $8 and $9 for without a murmur.

HERE'S the way he was wrapping them up. $30.00 and $25.00 Suits for $14.95; $40.00 and $35.00 Suits for $21.95, AND high class Art and Art Craft suits for $2^.95. SOMETIMES he'd slip in a $15 Raincoat for $10.80, OR a $25 swell fall overcoat for $16.45. PALMATARY was right there, too. TALK about sell, well he sure went some, I'LL bet he was a tired boy Saturday night, BUT he's been resting the last couple of weeks. A FEW of our good travelling friends looked in BUT they received no orders on Saturday. THEIR only orders were "GET over the top-Carry on"; AND we didn't need to ask them twice. ROSS Sutherland shed his coat, ,j AND helped Mac sell suits, BUT the pace was too fast for Ross. HE left about one to keep an appointment. (DID he tell us who with.) RICHMOND was seUing $1.75 union suits for $1.00, ' HE was quick to get onto the combination, ^ AND never lost it. NOW he's some salesman, but he would rubber, OF COURSE, he's in the rubber business. ANDY was all over the store, SELLING $2.00 overalls and jackets for $1.35. AND $2.50 Pick and G.W.G. overalls at $1.75. NOW you working men if you want to get in ON real genuine Bargains in work clothes, COME in and see Andy, he'll use you right. HARRY Short stuck with it all day SELLING $2.00 wool underwear for a buck, AND $1.25 and $1.00 work shirts for the low price of 6 bits. $3.00 and $2.50 Hats were walking out on heads for $1.45, AND $5.50 and $5.00 Swell Fall Hats for $3.75.

YOU'LL never buy 'em cheaper. A MERCHANT can't use blank cartridges in his advertising, NOW-A-DAYS and get by the people-No, Sir, IT'S cold facts that count most these 1918 days. YOU gotta be there with the goods. IF we hadn't have been we couldn't havfe done SUCH an enormous amount of business, AND when you've been here once, DON'T run away with the idea THAT you saw the whole show, FOR you haven't and I'll tell you why. BECAUSE we are busy unpacking new lines FROM our large reserve stock. EVERY day we dig up a fresh lot OF new and bigger bargains. SO there's something different every day.
