If the people of Lethbridge, jobbijrs, storekeepers and consumers, do not eat Lethbrldge-made chocolates and suck .Lethbridge-made suckers, the Lethbridge Candy and Chocolate Co. will gay farewell. This very important matter was the ])i:Price*s BAKING POWDER For sixty years Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder has been the standby of countless housekeepers 'who have relied upon it for healthful,'hoine-ba^ed food. .Dr. Price's contains no alum. There is never any question about the absolute purity and healthfulness. of the food it raises. :i chief topic of discussion at the regit lar meeting ot the Boarfl oC Trade last night. Mr. J. B. Wi'ikie' precipt tated llie bomb. He learned on Sat urday last that the manager ot the company was making arrangements to move out. A year ago this f�ictpry started operations with a staff of three. At the present time it employs a staff ot nine. If the people of Lethbridge would insist on buying nothing but made in Letiibrldge candies, the factory would be forced to enlarge its capacity. "The factory has made progress that has justified its existence from a business point ot view," declared Mr. Wilkie. "But the major p'ortlon of their business has come from points outside this city, and the :establiSh-ment of their product on the Lethbridge market has been an .yph^ll task. The men behind the business iire experienced. They understand competi tion, they know how to produce the goods, a:id they are producing the goods. If'they had halt of the Lethbridge market, they could increase their staff to 18 or 20 hands." "The whole thing lies with tbe consumer," said Mr. JIarnoch. "Lethbridge-made candy is the only kind you want to eat, theretoreii the only kind you should buy.'' Mr. .Wilkie thought that ft was^uot. a matter ot sentiment. It is a qiies-tion of. self-preservation. There Is an antipathy to home-mado ^ooda ithalil seems to be bound up in the human make-up. We must got over that^^arid cease to place so much Impprtanc'e on the word "Imported," esnoclally as the Lethbridge-made product in this;;ciiBe is equal to, or oven better than aliy that is Imported. It has the advantage of being strictly fresht, -aili'ithe, chooo'Jates nre all hand-dipped, so must contain only the purest of ingredients. The proof ot the pudding is in the eatiiiK, and Mr. Lush passed, around, a five-pound box ot freshly miiile chocd-. lates, the entire package 'faeing consumed. Mr. Lush stated that the'company used nothing but nureticane sugar.
