Ilia lectures liavo not only been inspiring but have left something behind for citizens to think about. It is a pity If there aVb any motliers in IvOthbrldgo who have not seen his e.\-hlbll or takoii to heart the facts therein contained. Tho baby clinic, the nursery, tho Little .Mothers demonstration class all come in for special mention ,iud the hearty co-operation of everyone that has helped to make tho campaign a success.

We need to save the l)oys and girls. There is a lack of chapcronagc, and In Canada wo need a little more of tho conventions of nociety to sattguard, direct and develop human life. Mr. .Dobson paid a glowing Irlbnle to the United States in wiiat it lias done in this connection and asks that wo Canadians learn,to act as groups, to have clvic^prldo, a publlc'spirit and a deep patriotism (Unserving and d� voloping the human resources ,Hcv.

One lady afterwards complimented .Mr. Dobson upon beins t brave man. i Evening Session! The evening session opened with Father McCaffrey presiding and the assemliled audience sang "Oh Canada."

Every, CItlien, Child Welfare asks that every loyal concern himself with the saving ot the children, forgetting the material things In thl.^ essential need, and desires to provide lor every child and adult the opportunity for development to his utmost capacity. Dept. of Govt. In order to do this .Mr. Dobson tliiiiks' that a department In the gov-ernmnnt should be establislied for social reconstruction presided over by a minister of tho cabinet and to have four bureons: (a) A Dominion Roard ot ilcaltli to_ struggle against social discasHs, for'UiIh is fundamentally a civil problem; and it should bo tho duly ot public officials to make a pure clean life wllhin reach of all. as It Is in the spread of disease the danger lies, (bl A bureau of child welfare to save the children, (c) An aggressive health department and department ot liygiime, tlie latter,being at present unde/ consideration.

A solo was then beautltully rehdered by Miss Bessie Hazel .after wbleU Dr. Latterly spoke on 'yThe Child's Inlier--itance," viewing it from a purely medical standpoint.

It doesn't mean to stop buying the things you need. It means get-ting^fuU value for each expenditure so that your money will go as far as possible. It means saving that margin we used to spend thoughtlessly for the .'*highest-priced" things-imagining that they were necessarily the best.' In fact, the Economy of to-day really means .Thrift/ Succeeded Wh^re Operation Failed I " joliettb, i s ..oliettb, Que. 3 " During August 1nst/I went to Mont-  S S r�nl to consult n spccintist (is 1 had been ,S 5 .tulTcriug terribly with Stoue in 3t., Buffalo, N.y!^ 114 ^1 , Take-the matter of shoes," The money you spend on shoes isa,ver>' itnportaht item. You may be pay-' ing too much for your shoes. You know, of course, that shoes, like everything else, have gone up in price. ^'But there is a limit to the price which it it necessary to pay for good shoes: Forexample: If you are paying a certain price To;' shoes and can get the same wear and appearance in a bIioc for a dollar or two less, you'want to know it. It is not easyi even for a man in the shoe business, to judge the exact value of a shoe from its appearance. You may think, therefore, that it is necessary to pay the higlicst price always in order to get good shoes. That is not'so: For instance: Ames Holden MijGready Men's fine Shoes arc being made today to retail from J56 to $10. .There are mpre expensive shoes on tlie market, but it is not necessary to pay_over $10 for gbod shoes, and ^6 will buy shoes that will give good service for the price. There is quite a dilTerencc between $6 and ^10, but shoes at both these prices are very similar in r.ppcarancer The difference is due to the grade of ir.racrial used and to.a-ccrtain cxlcntptra irinimings and workmanship, which increases co?t but adds veiy little to the wear or appearance. For example: our men's shoes retailing at }58, So, or $10 are made of genuinc>alf skin and first-class materials throughout, but you can buy shoes for i56 or $7 that arc made oPtHe skiri of a large calf qra cow. This leather does not command such high prices be-causeit is heavier'm weight and not quite so fine in' texture, but it v/ill wear .is well and only experienced shoe and leather men can appreciate any dilTcreoce in, its appearance. - \ Differences in price you,will sec do not necessarily affect the actual wear or stylish appearance of the shoe, but arc mostly due to certain little luxuries and extravagancies which may be desirable in normal times but not justifiable now. , Therefore, if you want to economize in footwear, ask your dealer to show you Ames Holden McC\ready ^ shoes that retail at the price you can afTord to pay.' Ames Holden. McCready make all kinds of foot*, wear for men, women and children. ' The i\ext time you purchase shoes, look for ihe A. H. M, tndf-mark. Il) is a guidb to good values, because it is found only on shoes 6f good appearance which give excellent wear and �satisfaction for-the price. When you buy A. H. ^fi. shoes yo'tt can alwa^.a be sura that you have got fall value. That's genuine economy,' AMES HOLDEN McCREADY 'SfToemakera, to the Natio.n" St. JOHN MONTREAt TORONTO \ WINNIPEG EDMONTON VANCOinrER iiiilllittllllillilliyiilllllllHIISlllHillllllllllllilliilH^ 64?3 467??041205?01360475607500763775?378533 324?372615489?9443297337827?436073732764?4718?7530???1839637481996?7947?67???73701671503738223?71603 534848534853534853532353235301535348534823484823232323535323534848235323235323534853480048530053234823480253000200000102022302020200532301000201 ;
