THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1918
When women pet to passing words
back and forth it is always wise t<
keep out. At the risk of having i
rap or two, perhaps a dozen or more
we have decided to have one say
Somehow, in reporting the splendk
dinner prepared by Mrs. Georg<
George Smith, and one which con
formed to the meatless requirement
we got it twisted and made it ap
pear tnat mrs. smitn ftaa meat
when, it develops that she had non<
that day. Could have had meat o1
her own raising, had plenty, bul
none cooked for that dinner, and a:
we understand it, none served at thai
meal. Our mistake in stating thai
meat was served, brought down up
on Mrs. Smith more than one womar
]intere6ted in the conseration of
food. If we are not mistaken, twc
aroused ladies have already expressed
their disapproval in Th<
Times. All our fault, ladies, or sc
we believe, for carelessness in writing
the story of Mrs. Smith's dinner
Allow us to say, in conclusion, thai
if we are not mistaken, the citizens
of Union county and, for that matter
the citizens of the United States a1
large would have very little need tc
conserve food by meatless, wheatless
days if they had as a people, practiced
the wisdom of Mrs. Smith. Thai
she is a wonder in the matter of
skilled conservation and abundant
production. Everyone can see. This
country needs more women like her,
and if there were more like her there
would be less need for all this mighty
cry for conservation.
A Thrift Stamp may seem to you
a very small thing; and, so it is.
Twenty-five cents, you spend it with
the feeling that it is not worth the
keeping; it is too small! How is it
through the saving of Thrift Stamps
to he of any consequence to the one
person saving them?
"A snow flake is a small thing;
hut many snowflakes become important.
They form the blankets that
keep hroad fields of wheat warm
through the winter. They impede
traffic. They cause cities to he isolated.
They fill meadows and halt
So it is with the Thrift Stamp.
One amounts to hut little. A few of
them amounts to much. A Thrift
Stamp bought by every man, woman
and child in the United States would
totai a savings account of $25,000,000,
and place that sum at the disV*A?A1
A ^ i V) A rfAtTAVATVlArvf
pvoai ui tuc ^uvciiiuiviii/ M.yj i IIIIIIICI'
iate use. Enough Thrift Stamps to
buy a War Savings Certificate for
each inhabitant of the United States
would aggregate n savings account
of $.r,00.000,000 and make immediately
available that sum for governmental
"Every Thrift Stamp that is bought
is like the snowflake that becomes a
part of the big drift which is to stall
the German war machine and make
the world a place in which people
.may return once more to the pursuit
of happiness and again enjoy the
comfort of security."
Moral: Buy a Thrift Stamp. Then
buy another?keep on buying. You
will become richer, the government
will have your aid?both be benefitted.
