Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 31, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �PAGE TWELA^ WHY PATRONIZE HOME DEALERS? Priic Winning Essays in the Recent Herald Contest. (FlMt prize senior essay by. Dag-: mar Sanqulst, 429 ISth St., Aorth, Lothbridge;. i There are several reasons why it would be Aviser and better for every-; one to buy at homo. The following : are some points, which I think should lirove to wide-awake people the advantage of patronizing homo dealer?, instead of the Mail Order houses. In sendlns to any of those houses, you must wait many days before they finally arrive. On opening your parcel you find they have substituted a blue dress in' place of the pink one which you ordered. The shoes you sent ifor in size six. are size seven, ' etc. Of course they must be retunx-od. and you'^have to wait patiently ; until your parcel arrives a second i time. This parcel may please you no I more than the first; but. being tired of the waiting, and the trouble of re-; turning, you keep the goods. On comparing same with good.i in your^ own . tovm, you find you would have^been � better satisfied in every way It you had bought at home; aiitl such is the ea.-our shopping ,h\B brol(o tho plant badly.

"IiTa�agreatsuflrererrrom^A?�>�-alism for over l6 years, I'consulted. specialists,' took medicines, � iised lotions ; but nothini^ did me good. Then, I began to use "Fnul-,v tives" ; aiid in 15 days', the pain was sasier and the Rheumatism was better. Gradually, "FriiU-a-lhes" overcame my'Hheumaiism; and now, for five years, I have had no return of the trouble. Also, I had severe Kctiema and Constipalion, and "rruit-.i-tivcs" relieved me of these complaints ; and gave me a good appetite ; and in every way restored me to kcilth". V. H.

Looking around the club rooms the other day 1 noticed that curtains did not appear to be our long suit. 1 wonder it any ot the good ladies ot this city'would like to help us out in tho matter. One hears u lot abont disciplinq in the Coloiitol Iroops-or more correctly, the/lack of It. Some iittlV time ago General Bird wood, commanding the Australians, was talking to some British staff officers on tho subject. Said ho: ''Laat week 1 was inspeoting n trench when Fritz started shelling; 1 heard one coming my way Just as a private standing nearby sail, 'Duck, Birdie.' One of the statt Officers innuired iu horrified" oicents, "WTiat did you� do sir." The general replied with a smile. "Why, Birdie ducked, ot course." ./ munity building is "Buyiug at Home," "Patronizing our own Dealers." The same principle applies to the tradesmen ot our city, for, whenever possible they should patronize our home industries. At present our industries are but few. but who can say liow many more will be added in the future providing we ail do our duty in building' up our city to. tho "ideal." There are other good reasons why "buying at home" appeaU to us. Let me state a few: (a) when "buying at home" v,e keep our money in the community, wliich is of great advantage to our city. If everyone would "buy at home" trade would boom, there would be lots of work tor the working man in every capacity, and maybe taxes would not be so high. Our city would soon become rich and consequently a better home for the working people and their little ones, tb) If we "buy at home" we derive gi;eater satisfaction from our purchases'. For -instance, we see and know tlie quality of tho goods; we can be better suited as regards style, sliades," etc.; we can be assured of a better fit: and, in fact, we buy with our eyes open instead of being blindfold, for we all luiow that things are not always as they appear to be in the catalogue. How often j do we hear such remarks as-. "This i is not just what 1 wanted but it is � what they sent!" "If I had seen this I should not have purchased it'.", (c) Buying at home" insures us of getting our goods witbout waiting an indefinite time. We liave no fear that they may get lost or damaged in transit. Many people, the majority I think, patronize out bf town houses because they think they- are saving money by so doing. Are they? Not always. Do they stop to count the cost ot the money order? the note paper? the stamps? the freight or postage? Besides, does it pay in the end? I am sure I would not feel like taking care of \s\ dress, hat or coat that 1 did not like. ' - . . \Vhy should we be so selfish as to consider a few cents or. even a few dollars when the interests of our city are at stake? I^et us all do our share in helping to usher in the greatest era of happiness and prosperity Lethbridge has ever seen. tDy J, r. B. l.ivcaay, Canadian Press Correspondent.)
