'T'O every home there comes a time when
*** every thought, every hope, every prayer
for the future centres on the recovery of one
loved one. In that hou ��� .. unguiou, every
means to recovery is sought���the highest medical
skill, trained nurses, costly treatment. Does
the price matter ?
��� ���      *      *
It may be so great as to stagger the imagination���a sum beyond the possible.
But does anyone ask, "Can we do it ?"
Money or no money, they do it.   And some-*
how they pay.
It may mean doing without things tney
think they need. It may mean privations,
sacrifices, hardships. They make unbelievable
savings, they achieve the impossible, but they
get the money to pay.
��� *       *       *
To-day in this critical period of our nationhood, there is imperative need for MONEY���
vast sums of money.
Only one way now remains to obtain it
The nation must save, every communi'y,
every family, every individual Canadian must
save.
If anyone says "I cannot save" lct hira consider to
what extent he would pinch himself to relieve the suJer-
ings of a loved one at home; and surely he would not
pinch less for our fighting brothers in France.
Without suffering actual privation*;, nearly every
family in Canada can reduce its standard of living, can
practice reasonable thrift, can make cheerful sacrifice to
enrich the life-blood of the nation.
You who read this, get out pencil ���<������ ! paper NOW.
Set down the kerns of your living expense. Surely you
will find some items there you can do without.
Determine to do without them.
StartTO-DAY. Saveyour.mon at you maybe
in a position to lend it to your countr;   . of need.

Peopie may walk less to-day than in the old days.
But they walk under conditions not so beneficial
o the feet.
There's a jolt in the asphalt sidewalk that only
'Acme" Soles will remove.
There's a slipperiness to polished hardwood floors
\.r. only "Acme" Soles will provide against.
And poor grades of leather, getting into shoes as
i result of the war, have more than ever brought about
he need for "Acme" Soles.

An Adventure In the Surf on the West
Coast of Africa.
West Africa is known to all navigators for Ils few harbors and ils heavy
surf, which nt certain seasons rages
liko n battle, defying the while man
i who would approach ils shores. The
j author of "Tho Jungle Folk of Africa,"
Mr. R, II. Milligan, tells of a successful, nnd in the observers nn amusing,
effort to reach shore al a point where
the surf did not seem lo bc Impossible.
One day when the beach seemed
much better than usual the captain
and the ship's surgeon ventured ashore.
The captain afterward narrated llio
adventure of their landing to a small
but enthusiastic- audience. He said
that after waiting outside tlio surf half
an hour Ihe headman suddenly save
the order, nnd In a moment they were
lu the breakers, riding on thc top of
onc of them and speeding toward tho
shore at the rate of "seventy miles an
hour."
Tbe captain wns In the bow of tlio
boat, well braced and cushioned. But
when tbe boat struck the beach with
tho force of a railway collision the
doctor was thrown violently over two
thwarts Into the captain's bosom,
whom bo clasped about the neck with
a steel-like grip.
The next moment another breaker
picked the boat up and hurled It upon
the bench, throwing both captain and
doctor to a perfectly safe distance,
where they sprawled upon the sand.
The doctor, still hugging the captain's
neck nud very much frightened, exclaimed:
"Oh, captain, dear captain, is there
anybody killed but you aud me?"        i
Scarcity of English Humor.
It Is to be feared that if the paperi
���reserved a special corner once each
week tor the witticism of the week 11
would be often left hi,mk. There is ue
wit to speak of today, only n feeble Imitation of it which people are fond ol
calling the saving sense of humor.���
