Regardless of cost we have decided to close
out the balance of our Winter Goods, also all
odd lines, which are bound to accumulate in the
ordinary run of business.
We do not purpose carrying these goods over until next season, as it would cost us more
than the profit to do so, and so have decided
to give the profit and a little more to our
Customers.

The freight classification of
all railroads is controlled by
the commissioners, and alterations in it cannot be made except with the sanction of the
board. Any classification in
use in the United States may,
subject to the board's approval,
be used with respect to traffic
to and from the United States.
If the tariffs of any railroad
are deemed unjust or unreasonable they may be disallowed by
the board, and other tolls may
be prescribed. All freight and
passenger tariffs shall be filed
with the borad fo'r approval,
the same to be given before
any alteration in tariffs can be
given effect.
In order to allow time for
the railway companies to comply with the act in respect to
tolls, tolls may be charged under the law as it stood immediately before the. enforcement
of the act has been three
months in force, or until such
later date as the board may by
order in any case, or by regulation, fix and allow.
The act prescribes that no
discrimination in tolls or charges shall be made by any railroad against or in favor of
any locality or individual, nor
shall any discrimination be
shown any localities, companies or individuals in the supplying of freight cars.
lt is made unlawful for any.
railroad to give special passenger rates or free transportation to shippers of freight.
This order will tend to relieve
the freight traffic official of
embarrassmeut when his hre-
est freight shipper applies to
him for reduced-rates for the
transportation of himself aiid
family about the country.
Members of Parliament and
the Board of Railway Commissioners must, however, be
furnished with free transpor*
taiion.

A radical change from old
methods and prices was announced by the Toronto News this
, ' week. Tlio eyes of the riews-
Iriend, but p„pe., World have been upon the
News for the past few months'
during which time several departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread reputation for enterprise
and originality. This latest
move is to place the News at
tlio price of $1.00 u year by
mail Only a deep founded belief in the future success of the
News could lead the publishers
to make such a reduction in
price. But just as the dollar
magazine has taken hold of
the people, so, we venture to
predict, tho News will secure a
vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on th<!
popular price at which it is sold
but mainly upon the intrinsic
merits of the paper itself. Wo
have made arrangements which
enahle us to club the News with
our own paper at $2.80 a year
in advance. Such a combination presents many unique
features, — our weekly giving
you all tho home and district
news, and the big twelve-page
daily keeping you in touch with
events all over the world. Send

An exeh»hge"says: "A town
can get along without a fire
engine, a street sprinkler, and
opera house,, electric light and
waterworks better, than it can
get along Without public spirit.
Give us a town made up of
citizens with no public spirit
whatsoever, aud we would
trade it off for a graveyard aud
ask for nothing to boot. Public
spirit is to a town what blood
is to the body, Without it you
have paralysis and atrophy of
trade.
