How 'do the hens manage it Are they too "boosters" for Prince Rupert, determined to give aid j in a practical way? j Some time ago when Pincher City! (not to be confounded with Pincher Creek) was founded, the company promoting it ran a store at which groceries were sold at a rate that would soon have proved ruinous to an ordinary merchant. Of course the object of the business was to attract people and not to make money They don't need to do that in Prince Rupert, so we may conclude that it's just innate philanthropy on the pan of the merchants which is responsible for very best Alberta butter at twenty-five cents a pound.
