CANADA SUPPLYING DEMAND
As Farmers Hold Crop for Higher
Prices Stock Alio Coming in
from Across the Border
Chicago, Nov. 19. Pre-war prices
made their first appearance today in
the grain market. Corn and oats
were sacrificed wholesale in the
trading pits until both cereals were
squarely on an ante-bellum basis of
value. Transactions in wheat were
also of great volume, with price
slashing in progress.
Reported unsettled general busi
ness conditions furnished the back
ground, and large supplies of feed
stufts were said to be in sight with
live stock being rushed to market
instead of being held on farms, ac
cording to reports. Wheat showed
itself the most sensative of arty
board of trade commodity and stop
ped falling only after having broken
y34 cents a bushel.
I'.ear leaders conceded that farm
ers were to a large degree success
fully maintaining a holding policy
as to wheat, but took the ground
that the wheat must be sold at some
time, and that in the meantime Can
ada was supplying the urgent de
mand in this country and was fur
thermore glutting United States mar
kets with Canadian cattle as well.
Persistent liquidation of corn es
pecially was explained by bears as
due to necessity of a price low enough
to induce consumers to stock up
ahead of requirements and to coni
pell buying on the part of investors.
This view, however, was being ac
tively combatted late in the day by
the bulls with the question as to
whether with pre-war prices al
ready attained, the period of deflation
was not now fully over, at least as
far as cereals were concerned.
PASTOR IS GIVEN A
Members cf Senior Choir of Methodist
Church Invade Hunter Home and
Spent Pleasant Evening.
The members of the senior choir at
the Methodist church have adopted
the robes of a vested choir far use
at their morning service hour and
last evening decided that it would be
a fitting initiation for the robes in
making a call on the pastor, I'ev. A.
V. Hunter and wife. At the close of
the choir rehearsal at 9 o'clock the
members of the choir, some twenty
five in number proceeded to invade
the parsonage and gave the genial
pastor and his wife the surprise of
their lives as they were wholly un
aware cf the pleasant call that was
to be made on them. K. W. Wes
cott. organist of the church, quietly
entered the Hunter home and seat
ing himself at the piano and struck
up the measures of a march to which
the members of the jolly party en
tered the house and proceeded to an
nounce their mission. The pnstor
and wife recovering from their sur
prise joined in the happy party and
for several hours the house rang with
merriment. The evening was spent
in games and the enjoyment of musi
cal numbers by the different mem
bers of the party and at a suitable
hour dainty refreshments were served
that added to the delights of the oc
casion end were provided by the com
mittee of the choir composed of Jesse
Perry. Miss Florence Unlser, Mrs.
Wallie Perry and John Lyon and Ihis
feature of the entertainment was one
that won the warmest approval of
the members of the party.
During the evening Won. It. I?.
Windham was called upon to give a
number of the reminiscences of the
by gone days in the church choir. Mr.
Windham having been a member of
jtbe Methodist choir in this city in

NEW INSTRUCTOR SECURED
FOR GLENWOOD BAND
The (ilenwood band has secured
the set ices of .Mr. Ed Sehulhof of
TMattsmrmth, for Monday of each
week commencing Monday,, Nov. 22.
Mr. Sehulhof will give lessons on any
band instrument at the Glenwood ar
mory each Monday. The band lias
secured Mr. Schulhof's services for
the day and evening at a flat price
and the money derived-from all other
music instructions he may give will
go to the Glenwood band to apply on
the cost of Mr. Schulhof's services.
There never has been a time when
prospects were as promising for a
good band as now. We do not feel
it is necessary to say anything in re
gard to Mr. Schulhof's ability as he
is well known in Glenwood. His
years of experience as band leader
and instructor speak for him.
The Mu ray school will give a pro
gram and box social at Puis h.ll

THIS is the time of the year when our Budget
Plan is most helpful. You ought to come in
right away and find out what it can do for you. J
In the first "place, it will put a New Edison beside
your Christmas tree, (how the family will rejoice!)
In the second place, it will stretch your Christmas
dollar so that you'll hardly feel the purchase.
,The Budget Plan treats the New Edison asah
' essential of life, such as a home, and arranges
payments on the sound "time" principle. It com-'
bines modern business practice with thrift, f
This way of treating a dollar actually makes it go
farther. Let us explain how the Budget Plan ,
brings the ionged-for New Edison for what an
extremely ordinary gift would cost, and makes
1921 thrift pay for the balance.''
