yourself and family to pay a
little attention to this important
fact. Our heavy blankets for $2

Christmas present. A large rug,
2x5 feet, in front of the bed, is
a good match. You will do well
to inspect our mammoth stock
complete in all lines we cany.

But how low can we make the price, is the
question we ask ourselves when marking our
goods for sale. That's what makes ours an
ever-panding business, it's a potent advertiser;
it tells the story through the purse in thousands
of homes, only to be retold in countless others
by appreciative money savers.

Postal Banks In Ireland.
Tho following- letter on tho benefits of
postal savings banks is from Thomas
Burke, a trade unionist in Belfast,
"Of all the reforms now needed in
America, the postal savings bank should
come first. Such an institution gives
absolute security to the musses in de
positing their savings; it encourages
thrift; it .also gives a permanent lesson
in jHilitical economy; fiirthermoie, it
creates that true spirit of independence
and self-respect which it is impossible to
find among a people under t'ie present
system of savings banks and loan asso
ciations. In Bpeaking with some of the
labor men here on the subject they have
expressed surprise that you have no
jHistal banks in America. They wonder
that such an energetic people should be
without safe places to deposit their sav
ings. They further said: 'Cive the
Aiiiericun working people government
security for their deposits and they will
outstrip the world as regards the amount
of their savings. In this country nearly
every child has au account in the postal
banks. This is taught them in schools.
They buy stamps with their pennies and
place these stamps on a card. When
they have twelve stamps that is, 1
shilling they open an account in the
'hank' and keep their money there until
nicy are aoie 10 worn, una n is surpris
ing to note the amount of their accounts.
For instance, I know of one man about
24 years old who has been saving since
childhood. His account amounts to
