That is to say, she should be abb; to tell at. a glance when they are legitimately and when illegitimately high- TI-.j lack of such accurate information can keep her from doing her duty to her family, 'both in the matter of nutrition and economy. A knowledge of prices comes from careful surveillance o'' moat and grocery ads and from a study of market fluctuations. Clothes ads are assidi-ously followed by most women. Why not food advertisements? Buying at a certain store simply because it is "convenient" is not. good business, when you can get exactly tho same quality of goods at a lower rate somewhere else. Pay more attention to your household sh pping. Cultivate the market and encourage your dealer to handle substitutes; display food posters, and otherwise help along (he cause of conservation. "THE HOMESTEADERS" i�. Tho reprint edition of "The'Homesteaders" by Robert .1. ('. Stead is now being circulated and there nas been a wide demand for this interesting book. Mr. Stead haS an intimate knowledge of the Canadian west and is admirably fitted to write western tales, his poems, and siory "The Cow Puncher" having been very popular. "The Homesteaders" is an example of Mr. Stead's best work in this line. The scene is laid in Manitoba, in the early days of 1882 and in the form of a fascinating story deals with the hardships entailed in this early life. The scene moves on with the opening up of the west 25 years'later, dealing with the homestead rush, the real estate men and the materialism that re-paced the old community interest of the pioneers. Later the story moves forward into Alberta, at the foothills of the Rockies, where exciting incidents keep the reader's interest at a high tension till a satisfactory conclusion is reached. Any westerner enjoys this story,-with its touches of local color, very thoroughly.

According to a statement made to the Herald by a member o'f the Retail Clerks Association, the clerks will Bhortly approach the retail merchants with an alternative proposal for the settlement of the early closing question. The settlement, allowed the merchants in cities over 5000.provides that, as a war measure, the retail stores may temain open on Saturday evenings until nine o'clock whether or not a' weekly half holiday is granted. The local merchants have cancelled the holiday, and, under the government ruling will remain open until ' nine o'clock Saturdays. But tho retail clerks are not satisfied with this plan. They will ask the merchants either to close their stores at six o'clock on Saturdays, or to grant a weekly half holiday in case the stores- are kept open until nine o'clock Saturday evenings. A committee of the retail clerks supported by the Trades and Labor Council will shortly wait . on the Retail Merchants association with this proposal. �' AUSTRIAN PREMIER QUITS London, Oct.. 6.-Baron Von Husser-ek, Austrian prime minister, has resigned, according to an Exchange Telegraph despatch from Zurich.
