tho past six or eight years tho pure "word"
method so called of teaching has been
dopted as the proper method of instruc
tion in such elementary classes, and being
further convinced that such tailurc docs
not result from u lack of qualification, in
terest or enthusiasm ou the part of the
teacher; therefore be it

A quick survey of blankets,
et's be careful of words.
Family blankets begin at can
ton-flannel, $i a pair for a single
bed. It is labeled "Scotch with
the motto "Dinna ve hear the
slogan ?" a manufacturers' lie
no matter. 1 hese lies are a
trifle inconvenient to us who
lave no use for them. They're
a serious inconvenience to you
when a store adopts them. Here,
of course, vou pay no heed to
1 lien cotton-ancl-wool lrom S2
to si 2 a pair some extrava-
gant beautiful blankets have cot-
ton warp. We ought perhaps
to say that experienced house-
keepers by no means despise a
cotton warp: they consider a
cotton-warp blanket better than
all-wool if the wool is such as
ow-price blankets are made of.
t the wool is thoroughly pre-
)ared, all-wool is the proper
material; but this relates to
rather costly blankets. H-otton-
warp blankets, remember, are
wool, nine-tenths ot their weight.
All-wool trom S3. 50 to $28.
fvou want our opinion as to
where a blanket begins to be
better all-wool, we say at $10 a
air or thereabout. Not everyl
body agrees with even so loose
a statement as that. Interpret
very loosely. We some-
times strongly enmmend a $5
6, $7 or $8 all-wool blanket.
Family blankets are : White
with borders of stripes or fig
ures or both ; pink or blue with
borders picked out with white
or a darker shade or both in
stripes or figures or both ; scar-
et and blue with borders of
black in stripes or figures or
both : and figured or dotted all
Figures in blankets are new.
The figures are woven, same as
in dress-stuns ; but the teazling,
to comb the wool into smooth
ness and softness to give it a
rich and luxurious surface, blends
adjacent colors and softens the
niankets lor wrappers are
plain, or ligureti, or clotted, or
striped all over, or mixtures with

more like rugs than blankets,
$5,25 to $10 each not in pairs
Blankets for cradles and cribs,
all-wool, ?i.2o to $6.25 a pair.
If the choice depends upon the
baby a sensible baby would
rather have the $1.20 blanket,
or a larger one, or two of them
if his sleeping-room is going to
be cold ; for it's light and open
the wind will whistle through
it and reach its inmost fibres
and freshen them when you
hang it out to air. But if the
baby is somebody else's baby
somebody else may think a gift
should be prctry and rich then
of course it's none of the baby's
Among all these are extrav
agant blankets, mostly Ameri
can, fifteen styles or so from
abroad. Wc don't go abroad
for good olankets we go for
variety. Certain styles you
wouldn't like to miss can only
be got abroad.
Car-drivers use a lap-blanket
75 cents a pair they throw it
over their horses sometimes and
them a shiver. Good,
stable blankets some
folks buy them for horses who
haven t any horses ; good
enough for servants, they think.
We have a whole stock of
horse-blankets not touched on
Good gray blankets, good for
whatever use permits no thought
of waste, for $1.50 to 2.25.
V e have sold three tons of them
within a week. Poor people buy
them perfectly proper blank
ets. Rich people buy them
and give them away. Asylumns,
hospitals, prisons the govern
ment buys them for all sorts of
We have kept for the last a
bit of bed-blanket wisdom worth
more than color or figure, or
fineness of wool, or finish, or
any non-essential Size is all
important. A stingy blanket is
any blanket too small to cover
the bed and tuck in at the sides
no matter how rich or beau
tiful. The part that keeps you
safe and warm while you sleep
is the middle ; but generous
sides have got to be there
wide enough to tuck in and leave
you room to turn and roll about
in your sleep. You know the
size of your beds. Sheets are
generally wide enough. Blank
ets are almost always stingy.
There wouldn't be "business"
for half the doctors, if blankets
were wide enough. Undertak
ing itself would have to wait for
people to catch up with its over
stock, if blankets were wide
i -vr i i .1
enough. You know the truth
of wnat we art; saying as well as
. ' &
we do. Hut perhaps we re ex-
ceeding our province. What
business is it of ours, if you
choose to put your money in
beauty of color and fineness of
wool on the top of the bed to
find it on the floor in the morn
ing and then call the doctor?
One thing more Blankets
are bought by the pound
merchants. First comes qual
ity of wool ; next the making.
I hese two lix the price by the
pound. The size and thickness
fix the number of pounds, and
the price of the blanket. When
vou compare two blankets,
weigh them look at them ; feel
of the wool but weigh them.
Mot one merchant in ten knows
enough of blankets to know
what make he is selling. Whole
sale dealers disguise them un
der misleading names
Uur blankets are lower in
price than last year all through
the stock, livery blanket is
lower lower by five to twenty
per cent. We have nearly two
hundred ditlerent sorts ol blank-
ets. Many of them are exactly
the same from year to year,
We know them as well as you
know your children s laces. Ihe
blanket we sold last year for $0
($i a pound) we are selling this
year for 7.20 (eighty cents a
pound). Anotner was last year
S6 (eighty-five cents a pound),
is now s (less than seventy-two
cents a pound). And so all
It is yours to look out for size
and stvle. It is ours to see that
the price is right. We have
done our part. There may be a
rise in the market. It isn t un
likely. But there's no occasion
to think about that at present.
