MCCAFFREY Attention to Phone and Mail Orders Phone 445 2-10 13th St. N. The One Present- The man at the front will ap- preciate is his own home paper. Send Him The Herald He will enjoy it every day for a year. It is 300 presents m one. The time iw now right hero when Christmas presents to the men who are fighting so valiantly must be dltj- patched in order to ruach the front by Christmas day. This is an essen- tial point which must not bo over- looked. It need not be pointed out 1 that no matter how excellent the pos- 1 tal arrangements are, with the nun- dreda of thousands oC soldiers now in the field, the task ot delivering these on time is stupendous. The Herald therefore advises the friends of those in the firing line to at once pre- pare their kindly gifts and have them dispatched within a reasonable time. A Good Principle On the principle of better sooner than late it might be advisable to pur- chase these gifts right away. Various stores in Lethbridge just now are showing an exceedingly wide range of articjes suitable for gifts to "the boys" At present time there is a splendid variety from which a selection might be made. One thing is certain. With the greatly increased number of local men who have gone to do their coun- try's work the demand on these stocks will be heavy and later on the selec- tion might not be so numerous. With the object of securing the "very those who wish to send gifts to their friends at the front, and who are un- decided what to send, might do well to look over the stocks of. advertisers on this page. Among them-they can- i not fail to find something which will i bo both useful and pleasant to the men Jin the trenches. j In the grim work in the trenches j nothing cheers the soldier boys so much as the kind remembrances of those at home. The hardships of trench life are minimized wonder- fully by the thoughts of loved ones. Do not, therefore, delay until Hie lust moment in making a selection or your gifts. Take time by the forelock and ovoid the hurried scramble which is lire later on to take place. j In connection with tliy clisnatcli oi" the parcels it is important to riako careful note of the postal regulation. Question of Packing Special attention should be paid to Ihe question, of packing; this is abso- lutely essential to en.surc the packages delivered in good condition. Tliin cardboard boxes, such as shoe j boxes and thin wooden boxes should not be used. The following forms of packing are recommended. double cardboard boxes preferably those made of corrugated cardboard and having lids which com- pletely enclose the sides of the boxes. wooden boxes. folds of stout packing paper. security is afforded by an outer covering of linen, calico or canvas, which should be securely sewn up. The address of the parcel should be written in ink on the cover, prefer- ably in two I postal regulations state that' parcels going tn France must not weigh more than seven pounds and not more than eleven pounds when going to England. With these simple directions the work of the postal authorities will lie greatly facilitated. The great thing to bear in mind is that parcels sem abroad require a higher standard of packing than is necessary in the Cana- dian parcel post and this applies with even greater force to the parcels for i ff the troops.
