Pon Honor" Prepares to Meet Every Demand by Its Many Customers. entirely an Oakland one with Oak land headquarters and owned by Oakland people. While opportunity has been given for customers and employees of the system to buy stock, the management endeavors to limit sales of stock to residents of the Kastbay region. Oakland's large and rapidly jrrowing V' - of grocerterias known as "Ton Honor" Is preparing to onen number 17 of Its chain, of stores catering to grocery requirements of Eh st hay people. Having its inception in one grocery store on Piedmont avenue seventeen years ago, the orgnnlzation's main growth has taken place since changing from tho old Ptyle grocery to the modern groccileria, In 181 . The volume of supplies that must be handled daily to care for requirement of thousands of customers who patronize the seventeen stores' is Dne requiring much study a nd I Poultry Feeds The Family j Ttom the most authentic sources i the facts of the profits In poultry j falsing a a means of helping out j In the household expenses on a I California farm are given in a case ' Hear Hanford, Kings County.

No particular attention ' Was paid to the woman's bank account by other motubers of the family until recenmy, when the wife who had been' such a great help, passed away. At the bank, it was found that the had on deposit i $12,000 as a result of he surplus i poultry profitj after having fed the j family. thought on the part of the proprietors, C. S. McAllister and G. K. Arehambeault, both of whom have been associated in the management of the business from the start. Recently this problem was provided for by opening a lare, modern warehouse und office building at 416 Third street, near Broadway, convenient to railway delivery and within easy reach of the business center of Oakland. To this point, supplies of all kinds are shipped from all over tho country. Krom hero tbey are delivered daily, fresh to the various stores of the system. Pon Honor stores are uniform with the exception of a few of the earlier ones. These are being converted one by one, so that the entire chain will be arranged in the same way. Customers of one store will thus find themselves at home in any other of the chain and able to find without delay any class or or brand of goods desired. Storo fronts uto of uniform design and uniformly colored in orange and black, a combination that attracts attention and lends itself to advertising in which the proprietors are firm believers. Poojile who have been accustomed to buying at Pon Honor stores usually prefer to buy from them if in any locality where one is located. Tho uniform store front makes it easy for the customer to locate one of the stores in an unfamiliar locality. Pon Honor stores sell standard goods exclusively, either of nationally advertised brands or of well known local lines which have become popular through advertising and maintenance of high quality. Customers find this o.ie feature a distinct convenience in enabling them to get without delay the foods to which they have become accustomed. The original store opened on Piedmont avenue by Arehambeault and McAllister still supplies Uie requirements of that sectiov. being now located at Fortieth and Piedmont, near the original location. Nearly all the stores are in Oakland. One is in llayward. one in San Leandro, one at pi oadmoor, and three in Berkeley. Number 17 wiil soon be etn in the Kulrfax business section of Kast Oakland.

Graft on Bongridge road near Yerada. road. The forjnn! opening of the Arthur H. Bard unit of Maxwell Park eyh'Mted to the public some of : ;.ny features of what has come to be known as "Bard Construction'' in homes, and when a practical builder and construction engineer endorses the work of a rival iri business It ran be taken to mean that "Bard Construction'' has something more behind it thr. . mere words. Among those who visited Mn.r-well Park to inspect the homes that Arthur H. Bard Is building there was E. V. Iarmer, who has had much experience in home con-utruction in the Eastbay diBfrlct. After a thorough inspectlrr, r,l Bard's work and material, hn has nothing to do with the Bard organization but is really a competitor, said: '"chis is really Al lumber and material, and I don't see how Bard can use this and fix so low a price on these homes." The testimony of the many who visited the Bard portions of Maxwell Park on Sunday and during the weeic was the same. The many who came were willing to say that they believed that Bard is really trying to give an excellent quality of home for a very reasonable price. The feature that Bard emphasises in his building Is that of constant Inspection by competent superintendent. The material ia inspected before it is used, and every step in construction is inspected, and even the slightest defect Is caught and made perfect before the work is passed and accepted. As Bard has a complete force of his own at work, and as each one of Bard's lieutenants is an expert In his line, team work makes such inspection easy, and the results profitable and satisfacto-. to the ultimate customer. "We awe able to do all this," said i ':. ,id Futernick, sales manager for ine Burd company, "by the adoption of a highly efficient system which includes standardizing production, quantity buying and keeping in continuous operation large crews of skilled workmen. By the elimination of waste and everything that tends to run up building costs, we find it possible to offer the public homes miperior in style and construction at a rjjtnimum cost. "Bard homes are subjected to rigid inspection from the time the ground is surveyed for foundations to the final details of finishing. Don't think that because we succeed in completing a house a day, that that means speeding up structural work at the expense of dependable construction. "Every step in the work of erect ing one of Bard's homes is checked and unless It comes up to our standards, fails to get our okeh of approval. This strict system of supervision which is an important factor of our building policy, also applies to every bit of material used on a Job." llil IS GROWING WITH THE EASTBAY Without any concentrated salea effort, the demand for lots in Montclalr remains steady, accord ing to the Bealty Syndicate, owners of thia famous tract. Very rapidly the city is expanding in its growth up the hillsides and the complete settlement of Montclair a few years hence Is indicated by the new houses that are going up all over the property now. These houses are widely scattered and give very little impression of activity because of the immensity of Montclair, which is Tho famous army of brigadier generals created by Artamua Ward year ago waa completely outdone by a party o( Oakland realtors at Ijtkft Taho this imnmrr. Not only did they go Artemu Ward's brigadier general rank one better, but they completely disrated and r-duced to the rank the only real military man in the party. The parly wax arranged by W. P. "Bill" Boyd who made Bake Tahoaj hla stamping (round years age tn U who used to shoot griullea in thai surrounding mountain and la said ' to be the Mian who caught all the fish In tho lake, leaving few for subsequent generation. The rest of the party a composed of Arthur Mlirbtll of Beula A Mitchell. Charles Wiggins and Captain Alexander Mitchell, late of the U. H. A, The four, piloted by Boyd, finally; landed at Pomin's on the shore il Baku Tahoe. and they devotee1 themselves to showing the wonder of the region to the captain. Uo4 modestly explained that the bea and the fish were all gone aa hf hud been there before, but the lakf and tl.e moiin.alns were still on the oh. The uil.iary man was muck -ed though he found llttlr u. . tor the assorted artillery tha he had with him. But tha pajty found that thr military man who could put "U. t A." after his name was apt to livt up to his rank. The trouble, Is that we fellow are only high privates in the rear ranks," said Arthur Mitchell, the namesake, "and Bill Boyd la the guide." That furnished the right Idea. The party Immediately held a soviet meeting, courtmartialcd Captain Alexander Mitchell and reduced hlnj to the ranks. And so that there might be no mistakes in the future the realtor soviet elected Bill Boyd field marshal of ":e expedition. Arthur .Mitchell w. viade major general and Charles Wiggins was made colonel. Then the party left for Oakland and the high officers are waiting to sn Just what their army is going to do next.

Even now, re-sales of Montclair property bring far more than the price originally paid Individual owners.
