One Winnipeg Man i Beard of this who can week announced his intention of Dis charging1 his chauffeur and storing is car because there would toe so Many people to toe helped this Winter. The Friend to whom he confided this resolve asked him if it would not toe As Well to keep the chauffeur rather t Han add this Man and his family to the list of the unemployed who might have to toe helped. There is sound Wisdom in this suggestion. The More people Vjio can kept employed even at reduced remuneration the Toetter and the cheaper it will toe Lor All concerned. It is not always Economy for the housewife to discharge her maid or her was woman because times Are hard. If she suffers a curtailment of income which actually compels her to do so much the worse for those whom she has employed but if she does it solely because times Are hard and Money is tighter than she has teen accustomed to and she wishes to Havo More Money to spend on Lor herself and daughters it is mighty poor business and worse patriotism.

She has a direct Market now Lor Al most All she raises and by another Vear expects to do All her own Selling. She describes the work As Bemar suited to a woman. It is not hard and Shn says a woman is particularly Good at making the by products pay. For instance she is getting a lot of orders for canned fruit at a Good Price Honey is also a considerable item has built a Nice Bungalow and expects to pay Oft the mortgage in Short order. This Iclea should work out Well in Manitoba where Small fruits May be so successfully grown. I have just been told of a Young girl who has made a pretty Success of a Small fruit farm and am passing the hint along. She took five acres of Grod ground not far from a railway station where she could teach a considerable Market. The place was suit Able to the raising of Small fruits though there were no plants or vines planted when she took Possession. She planted two acres the first year doing most of the work herself and putting in strawberries blackberries raspberries and currant Bushes. She get the Best varieties Only Market Ber Ries and treated them in the mos approved fashion. The year following she got the three other acres planted and made enough from the two acres to pay for this work and for the plants. She also set up four hives o bees both As being Good for the Funai and a Side line to help profits. Big Money in Small fruits. The third year she began to Mak Money in Earnest putting most of i Brick into the land for she lived economically growing enough vege tables for her use both summer an Winter and keeping Down expenses As As possible. She figures that ff-1 1 nursing this Veteran of two hard campaigns gave it As her verdict that Thor Ough training must be supplemented not Only by a Strong body and nerves but by initiative and sound judgment an excellent Hospital nurse would not necessarily make an excellent military nurse.
