PUBLIC GENEROUSLY RESPONDS TO HOSPITAL APPEAL In response to the appeal of the lassie Hospital authorities, publish ed in THE NEWS last week, asking the- public to remember that insti tution with donations for Thanks giving, it was stated yesterday that the response had been more generous than heretofore. Large donations of every kind of food and larder sup plies came to the Hospital, where they were thankfully received and proper acknowledgments made to the donors. Miss Stevenson, Superintendent of the Hospital, and Mr. Jos. W. Davis, president of the Board of Control, gave THE NEWS a large part of the credit for the generous donations, as the appeal made through the columns of the paper was the first that brought the mat ter to the attention of the general public. Where the people contrib uted pounds before, to use a simile, they came in droves and flocks this time, with the -result of taking -up nearly all the available pantry space in the Hospital. Owing to the inclement weather many people residing in the county did not have a chance to bring or send in their donations. They can do so now, as such will be gladly Teceived and, acknowledged. o MOLASSES AND SORGHUM. ERESH LOT JUST OPENED We have just opened a new lot ojf 'fine New Orleans Molasses And Country Sorghum.

LADIES' OUTFITTERS Automobile n :V DIFFERENCE IN THANKSGIVING LONG AGO AND NOW In a mighty few homes in Paris will the Thanksgiving table "groan" under the weight of the holiday feast as in the days of yore. When the family man takes stock and dis covers that fitting celebration gas tonomically,of the day will set him back to a financial tune of dolorous note, he may forget the spirit of the times.. A look through the ledgers of some of the Paris merchants who are still doing business at the same old stand will show that Thanksgiving day of two score xyears ago was truly a dajr on which to give thanks. Quite a contrast with the prices of to day are those quoting turkey at twenty-five cents each, nuts twenty cents a bushel, butter ten cents a pound, and so on, until one stares in amazement at the sum- 'total of eighty cents for the Thanksgiving dinner of the early eighties. Well, that was then! IvTow, the man with as many as five appetites in his household must hustle to catch up with Old High Cost of Living. Turkeys yesterday were as high as fifty-five cents a pound on foot. "They are so scarce, you know," explains your produce dealer, as he chalks up the price a nickel more. "I'm expecting $1 turkeys by Thanksgiving. Cran berries are hard to get, and sixty cents a quart is cheap. Better buy to-day, they may be a dollar by Thanksgiving." "Some Thanksgiving!" mutter his pros pective customer as he figures out the cost of twelve pounds of turkey meat, wattles, legs, feathers and neck. He leaves a ten-dollar bill and tucks the turkey and cran berries under his arm. So it goes through the market. Everywhere is heard the doleful pre diction that after-war prices of yes terday will be beat a mile Thanks giving Day. Certainly there will be incidentals, and the Paris family which runs to "flxins" that get from under for less than $20 is lucky. But what if the predictions of the food are true and prices are as high j again by Thanksgiving Day? ORDER CHRISTMAS GREETING CARDS NOW TO-DAY.
