After a three year test, uch as the

such that the Right Hon. Reginald Mo

to end tbe war at tbe end of the cur

Marrb 31, 1017 our present scale of
taxation would provide not only for th
whole of our peace expenditure and the

also for a sinking fund calculated to
redeem that debt to less than forty
years, and there would still remain
surplus sufficient to allow me to abolish
tbe excess profits tax and to reduce

LITTLE TALKS ON THRIFT

N e vcrtheless,

The Department of Health in New
York recently issued a report which
showed how thriftlessness leads to
dire consequences. Among several
hundred families living on restricted
incomes, the selection of food was
shown to be -ather from habit and
racial custom than from discrimina
tion or intelligent chqice, and the pur
chasers did not take advantage even
of such economies as were possible.
A family striving to live on $10 a
week was found to indulge in butter
at -IS cents a pound when the same
food value and a better quality could
have been obtained from oleomargar
ine at from 25 to 30 cents a pound.
Potatoes were nought at 8 cents a lb.
and onions at 10 cents a lb. when they
could have been replaced in food
value in corn meal, rice and beans in
smaller amounts and less cost. In
one instance a family of 8. on a
budget of $15 a week, was found in
dulging in imported Italian cheese at
$1 a pound. In 373 families investi
gated Mvaoies were found to be less
than 'bey were a vear atro. and in
2,358 families wages were the same

In about 10 per cent of the families
more members were at work than a
year previously. In 594 families in

and of the latter 373 were receiving
a.d from relief agencies or friends.
lliese facts bring home with added
force the necessity of thrift, because
during periods such as the present,
when abnormal prices for commodi
ties prevail, there should be an intel
ligent understanding of methods of
economy and force of character
enough to put them into effect We
may rightfully protest against condi
tions which bring about such restrict
ed incomes, but this deplorable situ
ation does not alter the fact that tha
more limited the income the mora
need of studying means of frugality.
Recently in Spokane, Wash., a move
ment was started to have household
ers and business men collect all the
waste paper. More than 250 tons of
paper was sold for $6,000. The Presi
dent of a Hudson River steamboat
company recently declared that if he
could get the waste paper of New
York City he would become one of
America's greatest millionaires.
It is the thrift in little things that
counts. In Washington City the
school children recently gathered and
sold a large quantity of waste paper.
What was done in Spokane and
Washington could with profit be done
in every city in the United States, and
what has been done in waste paper
could also be done in many other
lines. Tbe resources of America
could be increased by millions if we
would just work totetber and prac
tice thrift in little things.
