Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE ^ETHBRTOGE DAILY IIERALD THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1018 Are You In Sensible Shopper Class? Fodd Board Advises Women to Buy Food as They Do Frills and Furbelows-Hunt Around Town for Food Bargains, Follow the Ads and Be a Cash and Curry Shopper The woman who slts'at home arid ord ers her food and groceries by telephone is upholding the H. C. of L. The woman who hunts as ardently fo r food bargains as she does for reduced rates on clothes has the per sonal shopping habit which spells -economy and conservation. There is one thing at least every woman- knows-the lure of the bargain counter. Generation follows generation hut the instinct to strike a bargain springs eternal in the human breast. The sharper the economic conditions the more pronounced is the gorgeous fabrics to her. Now she joins in the motley throng that (ill the aisles of the great department store?, inient on trying to oiitmlrror Knshiou, and to do it-iit the lowest possible cost. The net result is an elaborate and complicated delivery system, with armies of men and horses engaged in fulfilling: the behests of the feminine population. Madame la Mode's Devotees. One has only to watch the crowds outside a big store waiting for the doors to open in the morning to realize how keen women are for bargains.

"You find young housekeepers insisting on getting T-bono steaks. 'There is no use pointing out to them that a T-boue is only suitable for olie person. They must have it. If women would only realize it. the prieps of steaks and other primal parts of the animal would ho considerably lower if they bought the minor parts as well-known tojthe trade as 'fancy meats." " Educating Women to Shop. A new Held for the enterprising woman might be the educating of other women to be good shoppers. Possibly some of the big stores might I i have daily lectures on proper shop-' j ping methods.

Dr. Reid, minister of railways aud canals, said that Vancouver should be connected with Liverpool and Canadian Atlantic ports by steamers running via the Panama canal; that the government wharf should be connected up at once with the Canadian Northern railway; that there will be terminal facilities hero.sufficient to handle any large or small vessel; that as be did not favor the government building a hotel here, under the city's agreement with tba Canadian Northern railway, some oth- permission to use the south field o! j er arrangement or concession satis- Aajer-l-ka expels ALL gas and sour-/ ness, .stopping stomach distress IX-'' STANTLY.

In this way they are easy to follow, and one can get an idea of the prevailing rates at a glance. Too Busy to Bother. "Oh. I'm so busy around the house ! that I never have time to read the i papers," wails many a distraught housewife. Yes, but nowadays it is part of one's : domestic duty to follow food adver-; tisements and prices and to find out what's what in food conservation.

Sensible Shopping Naturally the Canada Food Board is somewhat interested in women's shopping methods-not because they want to control the sale of clothes, but because they want to see women saving food and buying economically. If the Chairman were to be asked who he thought belonged to the Sensible Shopper Class, he would probably catalogue them'in this wise: (1) The, bargain hunter who follows fqod advertisements. (2J, The; casb*and-carry shopper. (3) The woman, who knows the food laws. ' (-1) The woman who follows market prices and does not telephone for food. (5) The woman who thanks Heaven that prices are no higher, considering there's a war on. (6) The woman who buys nieat judiciously, not forgetting about the cheaper though less popular cuts. (7) The woman who encourages the sale of fish.

It is easy to forget that low j prices are out of the question in wartime. But there is no reason why anyone should have to put up with-extortion. An outstanding example of what can be accomplished by the right kind of advertising in conjunction with feminine enthusiasm for a good cause, was the huge mackerel sale' in Toronto some months ago. The Food Board put on a mackerel campaign, and in one week 100.000 pounds of mackerel had been sold, or more than In the whole previous year. ; ' Some Sleuth Work Needed The "little store around the corner" theory is often fatal. Indiscriminate buying runs counter to the cause for which we are all working. It is better business both ifrom the point of view of ;the housekeeper, the dealer and the country at large, to be something of a sleuth in buying food; to scout around until one finds the right things at the right place at the right price. This will be food conservation of the right kind. The time is ripe for a big change in shopping methods. Ordering food by telephone is as simple as falling off a log into the water-but it is apt to have rather dampening consequences. In,the final analysis, the consumer has to pay delivery expenses as well as the cost of the food. A horse, wagon and driver are needed for every three hundred parcels delivered in the course of a day. Sensible shopping is nothing more or less than personal shopping with a live sense of values in one's cranium, a bump of Scotch caution in the same quarter, and the identical bargaining instinct that works such miracles in the realm of Fashion. the Mounted Police property as a play ground for Central school child-,ren. He promised to iake the matter up at Ottawa^ The school board has now decided to ask the city council and the Board of Trade to support the request. Trustees Wallace and MacKay .were named a committee to secure the support of these two bodies. If the barracks' field can be secured, work will start on improving tha Central school grounds. This was referred to the sites and building committee. Rev. Mr. Snow and the United Church made requests for the use of the. Westminster gymnasium. These were- granted. The Y.M.C.A. wrote offering to teach school boys between the ages of 10 and 14 to swim, free instruction! to be given during school hours. The offer was accepted with thanks. The consent of the pupil and his parents to take the classes will be required in each case. The board also passed a resolution of appreciation of the Y. M. C. A.'s offer to give school boys physical culture after school hours tree of charge. A report from Dr. Thomson on the physical condition of the old 'high school was received and it was decid ed that repairs to the basement should be made at once. factory to the city would doubtless be made; that the additional filling in False Creek, which should havo 'been done by the Canadian Northern railway will be done by the government. Many otherwise well informed farmers and ranchers are laboring under r very wrong Impression concerning their rights in connection with entire animals, found, running at large. One is surprised to find'tho largo number of people who believe Ujey have the legal right to castrate these animals. Tho fact is that the law gives no one any such right under any circumstances and the person who dotfs so assumes groat risks In the matter. Tho regulation governing the control of entire animals Is set forth In the En-tiro Animal Act, and every,farmer or rancher who finds himself being annoyed by animals of that class should write to the department cf agriculture! and ask for a copy of this act. Tho same will be mailed to him upon rw� quost.

' The week's papers contain two despatches, one from Dublin, which announces "Allied victories make no impression here." and the other recording the sworn statement of, eye witnesses of the peculiarly- brutal murder of an Irish soldier, prisoner of war, by the Germans for protesting against being worked to death. It is more than an anomaly, it is a tragedy that everywhere else throughout the free world joy hells should awaken in hearts, ringing out forever the possibility of such iniquities as the murder of this Irish lad, while his fellow countrymen in his own "Isle o' Dreams" receive the glorious news at best passively. But recently these Sein Feiners, who sully the name of Irishmen, have so far descended as to raiff their version of a Hymn of Hate and that too, to the in'bal god of the Hun. consists of two stanzas adjuring me Almighty to "Lead the German Armies" and expressing the hope that this god would "Give all British Soldiers, 1 "Purest Essen steel.." One of their own has received this "purest Essen steel," but their eyes are still wilhholden. This lad is not the first. He is one of thousands, yet they cannot purchase back from infamy even with their lives the name of their own beloved country, their country which the Sein Feiners as far as in them lies, have sold to thsj; Power whose name has become a hissing. Jt cannot he said, no matter how-far our earnest wish might lead us to say it. that Ireland South has anywhere nearly done her share. The recent appeal for 50,000 men has resulted in a scant 8,000. No quarrpl of whatever family bitterness, no grievances real or nursed a hundred years to keep them warm, can excuse this record. It j'r no do-fence to sajxhat Ireland should have been handled differently. , A nation as an individual is chiefly responsible for its own "handling" at such a crisis. This is no man's or nation's separate and special quarrel, "ft is the quarrel of every man and every nation who values liberty, truth and chivalry. Ireland's frlnie Is not so much against the Empire ' or the ' world brotherhood of free peoples as it la against herself and against those thousands of proud Irishmen, among the bravest and truest hearts humanity knows, scattered throughout tho Empire and the free world.
