MILLINERY The un­der­signed hav­ing just re­turned from Bos­ton with a care­fully se­lected as­sort­ment of millinery, dress trim­mings and fancy goods, would in­vite the ladies of Derby Line, Stanstead Plain, and vicin­ity to call and ex­am­ine her stock. No trou­ble to show goods. Don’t fail to call for my $1.00 cut­away corset, the best corset man­u­fac­tured for the money. $1.00 kid gloves for $7 cents. In ad­di­tion to the above, I have a nice line of goods for fancy work, com­pris­ing wash silk, filoselie, Florence knit­ting silk, purse silk, plush balls, felt­ing, 18-inch plush $1.00, and in fact ev­ery­thing for fancy work. I am also pre­pared to do stamp­ing and fancy pink­ing for man­tle lam­buquins, ta­ble scarfs, etc.

HOUSE­WORK If any young lady wants to get mar­ried, we would ad­vise her to go to Dr. Somers to do house­work. Ev­ery girl they have gets mar­ried, and now Mr. Hazen has taken the last one they had and there is room for some­one else.

75 Years Ago,

BRIDE-TO-BE-SHOW­ERED Un­aware of the pleas­ant sur­prise await­ing her, Mon­day evening, Miss Nel­lie Alexan­der called at the home of her friends, Dorothy and Doris Holden, with whom she had planned to go out for the evening, but when the lights were flashed on in the dark­ened rooms, trimmed pret­tily in pink and blue, she dis­cov­ered many of her girl friends sit­ting around, smil­ing, and greet­ing her, in hon­our of her ap­proach­ing mar­riage. In the midst of them, she was placed in a dec­o­rated guest chair, be­fore a bas­ket heaped with at­trac­tive look­ing parcels of all sizes, which con­tained pretty and use­ful ar­ti­cles for her fu­ture home. Miss Alexan­der’s hap­pi­ness was very ev­i­dent as she ad­mired the gifts and thanked her friends for their kind­ness.

THIS IS EVERY­BODY’S WAR In­ter­rup­tions and un­due haste dur­ing the hec­tic make up pe­riod week last caused a mix up of Fire preven­tion and Vic­tory Loan Pub­lic­ity. To rem­edy this we are this week reprint­ing the in­tro­duc­tory panel of the Vic­tory Loan Pub­lic­ity, to­gether with the fol­low­ing text, which was ac­ci­den­tally omit­ted. The pur­pose of this ar­ti­cle is to set forth not so much an of­fi­cial view as one of hard com­mon sense as from one man to another. But it may be noted in pass­ing that a state­ment made by the four pro­vin­cial Vic­tory Loan chair­men at the be­gin­ning of this drive said in part: “We are con­vinced that the min­i­mum cash ob­jec­tive will not only be at­tained but ac­tu­ally passed. This is one of the im­por­tant and de­ci­sive ways in which our fight­ing men have won their re­cent and spec­tac­u­lar vic­to­ries. But the fight goes on more fiercely that ever. Now, more than ever be­fore, they need the tanks, planes, ships and guns which the pro­ceeds of Vic­tory Bonds will sup­ply. The bond buyer will this be en­abled to shoul­der his share of the re­spon­si­bil­ity, to make vic­tory surer and speed­ier, to spare his fight­ing men the ca­su­al­ties and his fel­low cit­i­zens the moral and eco­nomic hazards that would make a long-drawn out war al­most as ter­ri­ble in its con­se­quences as de­feat it­self.” But aside from th­ese and other pa­tri­otic mo­tives, the pur­chase of Vic­tory Bonds is also the sound­est pos­si­ble in­vest­ment for the wageearner. Ev­ery man and woman likes to look for­ward, not only to a speedy vic­tory, but also to the peace­time era when he or she will wish to en­joy some mea­sure of eco­nomic in­de­pen­dence. Th­ese days, when em­ploy­ment is steady and sure, and when in­di­vid­ual earn­ings and fam­ily in­come are for the most part much higher than in the past are the time to make a nest egg for the fu­ture. ...
