"If th» English were beaten their defeat did ihem more honor than all
their former victories. Our fleet could
never have been brought on after the
lirsl day's light, and I I.eli'Ve Unit
none but theirs could; and all the Dui

might be killed an.l English ships be

Invincible." That this may ever remain true of the nation is lhe fervent

"How nm h dn you e-baige for ono
thou nnl lettei heads" is a question
which tbe manager ol a printing office
il aHkel almost '-very day ol tbe week
That d'pends pretty much un the
quality of 'be paper,'' he replies.
The customer usually remarks that
he likes a (airly good clala ol paper,
nnd is shown simple, of several grad.
es  from  wbie'h  bc make-   a choice.   As
likily us not he selects a high grade
paper, one which calls for a rather
high price. However, he is shown a
j,o,,d grade of paper which he can
have printed an.l delivered for $li.50.
He wrinkles nis brow, puckers up
his lips, and finally si\s he will cull
again. Ha goes back lo his ollice und
■ooiis uii uu olfci ot soni'' mail order
Concern whieh seiii him a circular of-
i'.'iin; lo |ii ini ''ten thousmid letter-
Itcada ior $32.00—13.20 per thousand."
No mention is made of the grade of
taper, style of type or class of ink—
lut with the mail order house that is
of no eonse-pn nee. Of course thc husi-
nes- man really doesn't want ten
thousand letterheads, but thinks that
since he is' -ending away for them ho
may as well get a good lot—und away
goes the order lo thc outside house.
Now the point of this is thut, had
ibis mun asked the local printer for a
I ri. c nn "ten thousund" instead ot
"one thousand," he would have seen
ihut the price was the sume, or perhaps even better, besides which ho
could have had a choice of several
grades of paper at the same price. Ho
could also have seen a proaf of tha
type before printing, as well as hav*
BO ne choice in the color of ink. More-a
over, hc would thereby have left hia
good money in ihe city, with a chaneq
of getting some of It back again, whil^
ui the same time he would be sup«
I orling the- industry of his fellow business man, and nil this helps everyone^
living in tbe city.
And all this without spending ono
cent of additional money—simply turn
nig it into H different channel.   .
One night of pleasure can knock

Have a basket lined with outing and
streets, which might be paved with
creosoted wood block if only its virtues Wi re more wi'dely known. The
city of Calgary has laid two .-'treets,
and they have proved remarkably successful. There have been numerous
tests made of paving materials in tho
greal  cities of the world in Paris, Lon
with some extra  folds of th.'goods in  don,  Boston, t'hie'ago, New York, St.
Louis, and all of these great .ities

reasonable cost, durable under any
traffic, easy to maintain and to clean
practically dustless, lirm under tbe
{ et of horses, and of low traction resistance. The Hue de Rivoii, Paris,
has a pavement of wood blocks whioh
have stood for years the .ity's heaviest  tratlic.

them and remember that the express

It is not advisable lo send more
than 2o chicks to the basket. Send
several baskets, but have each on3
well lixed. The real cause of so much
loss in the day old chick bu-'incss is
because the shipper places to:> many
in i ne basket and often puts in water
und food. Put no water and no fool
and no excelsior and no straw and
rothiaj except   the outing.
If th' weather is real • old you can
tut -triiis of the outing to fall from
sides of tha basket like feathers and
let the lit Me chicks nestle under the
-trips und this will steady them and
give warmth. Another way is to have
t!.e> strips fixed to the top of the basket so When the top closes the strips
will  fall straight   down.
