WHEN THE PINCH COMES When the family larder is well filled, tlie income is regular and-the. household carefree, the home grocer is given but little of the consideration he deserves. But then comes adversity; work suspends and .the income is cut off. The larder is depleted-, and something must be done. It is then that thought turns to 'the. grocer,: wiw.has been.-quietly watching the freight man deliver the products of the.mail order house and" he Is appealed to. His sense of pity is deadened and it is right that he refuse to extend credit..to those .-who have failed to patronize him ia their day of prosperity. Even the. grocer's boy is aware of the condition and cannot but smile when the "boss" reminds the inconsiderate customer that she should have been aware of her shortcomings of the past. . . . . .
