Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 14, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, JULY 14, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN If you make your coffee in a percolator, ask your grocer for Seal Brand Coffee FINE GROUND I' r 0 R U 5 P PERfOLATOOS The top of each can is marked as above.

NEW REGULATIONS GOVERNING PROMOTION London, July IX-The Canadian Associated Press understands that, now regulations have been issued governing the promotion and graduation of officers with tho Canadian Overseas forces. Promotion will bo by selection based on efficiency,' and length of service must be considered. It is learned that special orders have Ottawa, July 7.-Tlio general opinion here Is that Food Controller Manila's opening remarks contain a good deal of the east wind. Ills advico is to grow more and eat less. Tills has always been good advice. It is in line Willi Finance Minister White's preachments in regard to thrift and production. The bulk of the people of Canada being city dwellers are not in a posi-lli.'i to grow more but they have certainly eaten less and less ever since tlio war started. The dollar has shrunk and the larder with it. There is little doubt that Food Controller Ununn's advice to eat. less will be generally followed. Me can rest assured on that point. When Food Controller Tlanna was appointed there was an idea afloat,', that. Ibis controlleiship might extend' to prices-that, he would suggest or j adopt, measures that would bring i down the cost of living. Hut it. seems, that his activities are to take a dif-' ferenl. slant. What he is going to control is our appetites- As II r. asks why wo don't eat turnips at ten cents each. If Food Controller Manna hasn't learned It ali'ady somebody should put him wise to the fact that, vegetables are a great luxury In this country. So are fruit!!. Kven at tlio war price of twenty live cents a dozen bananas imported from the West Indies, after paying freight by sea and rail, are cheaper than our liomc-srown apple. Owing to the enlightened endeavors of a few middle, men vegetables and fruit are as dear relatively as meat, bacon and eggs. Food Controller Manna is recommended to study the behavior of the common or garden potato since the war began. A more shameless example of exploiting one of the commonest, necessaries of life cannot be cited. Witlj two million bushels of a surplus over all honm and export needs potatoes rose to six dollars a bag. The Food Controller gives a long list, of things we ought lo do without -wheat, meal, fi.sli. cheese, beans, canned and evaporated food. Me would confer a real benefit on the Shakespeare says we are to be satis-1 '"i'lzoiis of Canada if-he would pro-lied with bare imagination of a feast.1 vi(1(!
