a Home for Your Children's
Ambitions may be realized in your
children if you have the home envir
onment which transmits to them the
ambition. The bas deencim wfm fm
ambition. The basic need is a home
and the sense of shelter and security
which goes with ownership.
If ther were no other arguments
worth while men would be more than
'justified in building and owning their
own homes for the children's sake.
Like father like son! The next
generation will not be a

doesn't show the benefits of home
owning and inculcate the home-own
ing ambition.
If oyu are determined that John

make good on your ambitions for them

a home that is all yours and theirs.

Characteristics of Good Water
Water for domestic use should be
clear, lustrous, odorless, colorless,
wholesome, soft, neither strongly
acid nor alkaline, and its temper
ature for general farm purposes
^should be about 50 degrees F. These
characteristics, however, must never
be deemed proof of purity, for a
glass of water may possess them all
and yet contain millions of disease
producing germs. Any suspicious
water should be rejected until both
the water and the surroundings where
it is obtained are passed upon by
competent sanitation authority, gen

What Others are Doing
Following is an article or report of
a meeting of the Commerical Club of
our neighboring and progressive city
of Wolf Point. Several months ago
they started a club and today they
are ready for their secretary. Much
time has ben wasted here in the mat
ter of a secretary, and many have ex
presed the idea that there wasn't any
one in the community who was cap
able of handling thej job. Take a look
at Wolf Point they selected a Willis
ton man for a secretary and we be
lieve they have made no mistake in
doing so.

The most important action of the
evening was the consideration of E.
W. Hall for secretary of the club.
The final decision as to employing
Mr. Hall was left to the club direct

The club has been in search of a
man for the position of salaried sec

small prospect of success. At the
March meting Mr. Hall was suggested
by C. L. Marshall, who was intimate
ly acquainted with him at Williston
where Mr. Hall was county agricult
ural agent of Williams county for
three years. John F. Cook, P. A.
Campbell and others who knew him
at Williston spoke very favorably of
Mr. Hall. His reply to Secretary
Garden's letter was read at the meet

consdirable discussion of his qualifi

a few dhys.

Do You Pay 66^
for Sirloin Steak?
—or 33 Cents?
We serve all tastes
A recent Government bulletin
quoted sirloin steak in different
cities at prices ranging from 33
to 66 cents!
We buy live cattle, according
to quality, all the way from $7.00
to $20.00 per hundred-weight,
live weight. Sirloins from these
cattle vary greatly in quality.
Some retailers sell 33 cent sir
loins. These steaks come from
cheaper cattle.
Customers of other retailers
demand choice sirloins at 66cents.
These retailers buy meat from
higher-priced cattle.
Also, the retailer who carries
complete stocks, delivers to your
door, and lets you run a charge
account, has to get higher pric&
than the retailer who runs a
"cash and carry" store.
