This has been a busy week from

party, Valentine parties and the
dance given Saturday night by the
Home Economics club.
One of the most delightful events
of the week was the large card
party given Wednesday evening by
Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Packard at
their lovely suburban home. High
honors went to Mrs. Martha Titus
and Royal Rands, with low going
to Mrs. F. A. Fortier and L. G.

served by the hostess, Mr. and Mrs.
Spagle assisting. Guests were the

ten numbers to see who was the
winner of the cedar chest filled
with lovely linens by the ladies of
the club, an auxiliary of the grange.
The tenth number was held by the
Columbia creamery of Portland.
Andy Anderson, owner, is well
known here so friends were glad
he was the winner. Mrs. I. Skoubo
secretary of the club, had sent him
a bunch of twenty tickets and a
check came back for $2, and it was
one of these 20 that brought him
the luck. Dancing ceased at mid
night when lunch was served.

finish the basement.

It All Depends
"It is impossible for me to save any
money on my present income." No
doubt you have often heard such a
remark. Is it true?
Well, it all depends. Most people
could save SOMETHING, be it ever
so small, if they would give up some
of the things they lead themselves to
think necessary. The trouble is, they
often refuse to deny themselves. They
are not willing to pay the price NOW.
But most of them pay LATER, when
they can ill afford to pay.
