Once upon a time there whs a

tain well to do citizen, who knew
and admired the young man, found
out about his ambition, and this man
financed the yound fellow through
an institution of higher teaming, to
the tune of several liunclictl dollars
After graduation the young man he.
cured a position in the line of his
special training, at a much greater
alary than he could ever have earned
without this training, and he began
to repay his benefactor. The war
came along an dthe young man went
to France and saw a lot of fighting
and won a commission, and sent his
payments back home regularly out
of bis salary as an officer, until the
whole sum had been repaid.
Today that oung man Ftnndi ex
ceedingly high in his profession, and
bis earning power is many. fold lar
ger that it ever had ben 01 than it
ever could hae been without this
special training that the older man
made possible. ThlH old) ; man by
the way, cheiishes the memory of
bow great a help to the boy bis loan
was, and looks back upi u Ids act of

A Practical Plan
Modern retail grocery buying has proven beyond a rea
sonable doubt that the best way the economical way is
not to buy groceries on. credit but with cash.
While credit may have", its advantages in some respects
it tends to tie one down making him feel as if his
very wages were mortgaged.
But why not make a change this month. Turn over a
new leaf. Estimate your needs a week in advance and buy
accordingly. One months experience will cure you of the
credit idea.
Send us your order this Saturday for trial.
