Later In tho night a soldier found

which tho War Work Council had
ripened as n clenrlng-houso for trou

was put to bed, hut sho was too

When tho United States entered
tho great war tho Young Women's
Christian Association was, as always,
working among women. With tho
call to now duties Its members did
not abandon their old responsibilities.
Tho War Work Council was formed
as an emergency measure to tnko
care of tho womon who were caught
In somo of thu mazes of war. Just as
tho parent organization has taken
caro of them through many years of
peace. Tho varied activities decided
upon by tho War Work Council fob
low closely tho needs ot tho differ
ent communities of tho country Sec
retaries trained In tho methods ot
the organization were sent out
broadcast. Thoy wore Instructed to
report to the National Hoard of tho
Young Women's Christian Associa
tions In New York tho lines of work
which could ho host followed In the
vnrlous localities. Theso secretaries
work In closo cooperation with min
isters, women's clubs, chambers of
commerce, churches, military officials,
and charitable societies. The rec
ord of u day's doings of n secretary
reads like n novel, an economic
treatise, nnd n psychologlcnl essay
all compressed Into u llnc-n-day entry.

To Our Many Friends and Patrons:-
For about four years now we have been conducting a Grocery Department under
great handicap in a little room just half large enough to carry the stock. There is no
room for display and the main stock being carried in the'basement creates an endless
amount of man power in carrying it up and down the steps.
So we have decided to simply close out the stock. The business will be done as .
usual until Oct. 14th, but arrangements have been made to dispose of what stock is left
after this week's business is over.
We desire to thank our loyal patrons for the nice business they have given us and
the consideration they have shown and to say that we appreciate the patience they have
endured during the time we have been selling groceries with this handicap.
The space used for the Groceries will be given over to the other lines, particularly
the Men's Department, which will be enlarged.
The firm of Bonham & Currier will remain the same exactly minus the Groceries
Your credit is established with us and we hope to merit an increasing business from
you in Dry Goods, Shoes, Notions, Blouses, Skirts, Umbrellas and the thousand things
that go to make up a store that caters to the trade that appreciates good merchandise
at a moderate price and the service that war times permit.
An account that is owed for groceries may be settled gradually as we do not intend
to crowd anyone.
Please understand that beginning October 14th the door into our Grocery Depart
ment will be locked.
Thanking you again for the business given us and trusting we may still retain your
name on our books.thru the other lines of merchandise, we are,
Yours very truly,
