Milady favors Silk Lingere, possibly for the
gratification of possession, and for the reason that ,
it is scarce, but more likely because makers have
been so successful in creating an abundance of
dainty and pleasing new styles.
Silk underwear becomes scarcer each day. We
have just received a large assortment and urge you
to make immediate purchases, even tothe extent of
covering yoUr Christmas requirements, now.
These garments : Camesoles, Envelopes, Gowns,
Vests, are all new and equally beautiful; created by
a clever designer to captivate feminine fancy. See

HOUSING PROBLEM SERIOUS
Inquiries arc made at our office
very frequently, "Can you tell me
where I con find one or two rooms
for rent," or, "Do you know of a
house for rent." This presents the
fact that the housing problem has as
sumed a serious phase in ML Ster
ling. It has become almost impossible
to securo a dwelling house of any
description and almost equally tm
possiblo to got living rooms, The
storage warehouses are filled to tho
limit with household goods, placed
there because of tho inability of the
owners to rent a home. There is great
need of a largo number of small cot
tages hero for renters.

appeal et'ihe g'evemeit, for patri
tie self-Merifice hesaewives deled
out their coaaodities with a sparing
hand. The lessen was a hard one,
out it was vastly beneficial.
There is danger that in these days
many will forget. There is danger of
an easy subsidence to old wasteful
habits, in spite of the high prices
paid for the necessities of life.
There is no shame in thrift. The
people of the United States cail well
take example from the ago-old' wis
dom of European countries in this
regard. The state of the housewife's
purse should make no' difference in
guarding against waste. In these
days when so much time and atten
tion are given to household problems
it should not be difficult for a house
wife to obtain information to en
able her to so order her affairs as (o
make good use of all the material
purchased for household.
The thrift which tho housewife
can practice is the same thrift which
tho government is sceHng to foster
as a remedy, for tho high cost of liv
ing, and as a permanent American
institution, through the sale of Treas
ury Savings Certificates and War
Savings Stamps. No greater patriotic
duty rested upon the housewife- in
the days when tho fightSng was on,
than confronts her now in the time
of economic stress.

1919 Treasury Savings Certificates
and War Savings Stamps may havo

by sending them to the Federal Re
serve Bank at St Louis, without
Tho 1020 securities will bo receiv
ed at tho December price, which will
be higher than tho price prevailing
for tho same securities of tho now so
rios. This is because thoy havo been
drawing interest at tho rate- of 3
per cent, for a year, and this inter
est automatically attaches to tho se
curities. The securities, if held until
maturity, will draw 4.27 per cent.,
tho difference being added as an ia
ccntivo for the holder to keep them.
Tho new securities are now being
engraved in tho Government Printing

Ifor tho Treasury Savings Certifi-
