THE DAILY OOUBlliR offers a means of getting thorn in a dignified way with little effort. Here is the plan whereby you can do your "bit" in the war and save money by investing a little of your time in War Saving Thrift Stamps: The Courier will give a 25-cent stamp to any boy or girl who gets a new customer for The Courier for two mouths at 50 cents per month, paid in advance. It will give two stamps for every customer who will take The Courier for four months, paying $2.00 in advance. It will give three stamps for a six-month subscription pajaug $3.00 in advance. For every old customer who will pay four months iu advance. The Courier will gife one stamp. No subscription will be take u for a longer period than- sis months and no old customer will be accepted, for more than four mouths paid in advance. War Saving Stamps are "Baby Bonds." They are the best investment to be found--better than banks. They enable you to put your money-in G-overnruent securities paying four per cent, c ' p o u n d e d quarterly. Back of them is the government of the I'. :«1 States, the strongest in the world. Here is the opportunity for the boys and girls to help win the war and also save for the future. Call at The Courier office and get instructions and receipt book, or from any Courier Agent. HOW THE CLUB PROMOTERS TALK IT OVER Tlie w o m e n promoting the mail order c'.ubs in any c o m m u n i t y are that community's worst enemies. They connive and plot by ni^ht to steal from their homo merchants t h a t which r i g h t f u l l y belongs to them in a business way. As one woman learns of tlio fallacies of the mail order houses, the lack of merit in their so-called premiums but which are n o t h i n g more nor less than bait or graft, she desarts the ranks and more victims must be necessarily enlisted. The husbands of these agents o£ the mail order octopus oppose their wives g i v i n g their services against the community in which these men earn^their livelihood and in many cases the wives go secretly into the work to slave and toil, to inveigle and then lose friends, all merely for a worthless reward. MORAL:--Be\vare of the woman who smoothly seeks your co-operation in a club; she is after your money and happiness.
