There is no particular line of business more necessary to a community than its home baker. Heis a contributor to the town's physical and financial existence, supports its schools and industries and is thus deserving of the considera- - tion of his fellow sesidents. The out-of-town bakeries persist in undermining the home baker's business. The ideal, home-loving man believes in co-operation with his fellow citizen and business man. acquires a iiking and taste for his products and offerings- in merchandise and exacts of his family and friends a similar business interest and co-operation. The home'baker is the best friend" the community has and deserves his just share of .the patronage. MORAL:--Business co-operation is to the community as bread to the body--the staff of life.
