Harrison Hot Springs, the Immediate environ of Agassiz, has all this,
and it remains now hut to apprise
the World, so that tourists will be
the'.e for week-end excursions and
travellers from all over the world
come to bask in tho glory of natural and acquired to be—World Famous Health nnd  Pleasure  resort.
So much, for Nature's endowment.
Almost since the Harrison's went to
ChllHwack, or before that, when the
AgassJz'fi came to the town that bears
their honored name, the possession—
natural and national endowment—
has been there, but, for the most
part, by local people, considered of
no value, indeed, hardly accorded us
much as a parsing  thought.
It Is true that a few have enjoyed
the scenery and participated in some
gain, and some have also regained
health through the Hot Springs.
(Some time ago we related of the
entire restoration to a man from Mer-
ritt suffering severely from rheumatism. In onuer here to note another
"bad case." Our brother-in-law, near
Lundy, near Vernon, was, a few years
ago, a cripple, and, coming to the
Springs, in a short time went back
to his family perfectly well, and has
so   continued   to   the   p:escnt   hour.)
Harrison Hot Springs People and
the citizens of Agassli will be the
very last to believe that anything
great Is within their grasp, many may
audibly or Inaudibly expressed flay
"Walt and see," or, "I'm from Missouri :  show me,"
The news has already been broken
by the Vancouver Daily World. Harrison Hot Springs Is to have a brand
new St: Alice Hotel with well nigh
200 rooms ; tourist auto camp, fishing lodges, golf courses, and a National Bank ank Health Resort second

The giant, as it were, has been now
awakened. The story Is out. In articles to follow tho whole story will

Agassis, Feb. 12.—A bad accident

The engine passed over the bridge,
the baggage car went through, pulling
the second class coach after it. The
next coach held the track and prevented the second class going down ao
far, but It turned over, and one of
the passengers was thrown thptugl.

I was coward enough to have some
misgivings regarding Maudle's visit.
Our friendship, old and precious ns it
Is, was not based on community of
tastes so much as on propinquity, and
I wondered if she would Jail lo recognize what was good in our simple life
and would see only the unavoidable
crudiiies and inconveniences. Then,
loo, she and Murray scarcely knew
each other. * She had been just a little bit. jealous ol him and he, after ho

tell each other.
Maudie was still In her father's office, und It seems likely Ihal She will
remain there, sin- is noi needed al
home and she has, rather surprisingly,
discovered in herself ihe same capa*
ciit for detail ihal makes "Uncle
Frank" so Invaluable In his position.
Her father's business, she told me,
had been hard hi! hy lhe war, and for
lhe lasl year she had drawn only a Ill-
He mote than half of her salary, and
Mr. Jones had given her shares In lhe
company for the balance.
"Reg does nol call' for ileal Estate,"
she explained, "he wants lo be it doctor, so Daddy and 1 are really partners, and he tells me that Ihe next
lime we order stationery my name is
lo go on ihe letter-heads. When you
come back lo Winnipeg, Margaret
Anne. I'll lake a lis! of houses and
suites and my Utile Ford, and first
tiling you know I'll have you sellled.

so much better than n man jusl what
will appeal lo another woman. Business is very* dull, but I feel Ihal I nm
earning my salary, and it would amuse
you lo hear Daddy and Uncle Frank
boasting nboul me."
In spile of my fondness for .Maudie
1 had been classing her Willi the girls
who work for pin-money and who
inigh! heller slay at home and allow
Ihelr positions to be tilled by lliose
who really need the salary. I confessed and apologized and .Maudie was
very magnanimous.
"1 did belong to thai class at flrsl,"
she explained, "but I became more and
more interested In Ihe work itself as
lhe months went by, and by the lime
il was necessary for me lo work it
would have been a real hardship to go
back to my lazy life. Anil there's
another thing, Margaret Anne, Dad
has never cut his staff—that is one of
lhe reasons for our being so 'short'
just now. So 1 do not need to feel
thai I am Inking someone else's place;
"It Is rather strange, isn't it?"
Maudie went on, "Vou used to talk
about n business career, and it was
lhe last Ihing I thought of. And now
here you nre on an out-of-the-way
farm, with a husband and two children,
while 1 am a budding Captain of Industry."
"'Oh, oh, oh, It's a lovely war!'" I
"Thai's It exactly, agreed Maudie,
"the war has turned us all to the rightabout."
"Bul, Maudie," I said, "you are not
overlooking matrimony in your choice
of a career, are you? Do you remember what Mother used to say that
while the1 work was hard the rewards
were great?"
Maudie shook her head.
"Nothing like thai for me," she replied decisively. "Filly thousand of
Ihe men of our generation did not
come home, and that means fifty thousand women left over. I am quite
content lo be one of them. Judging
by what I have seen, the competition
iu the matrimonial market is going to
be keener than in Ileal Estate, so I'll
slay as I am, thank you. And single
blessedness is hereditary in our family, ns you should know," she finished
wiih a laugh.
"Ootid old II.F." I said, "do you think
he has quite forgiven me?"
"Quite," Maudie assured me. "He
has taken to stamp-collecting now and
is as keen about it as If he were n
small boy—will spend n happy half-
hour correcting my geography when
I put Seneganibia among the Herman
colonies. I don'l think I'll ever be a

course and Ihen I'll be ready to decor-
ale nnd furnish the houses I rent nnd

enough lo let someone else furnish her

"Oh, I'm nol going to he a sour old

That meant llllle In one way, had I
been In Winnipeg I should have gone
loo, for Leslie was one of our old circle, one of lhe jolllesl and mosl popular of the boys who hud gone overseas

"My Back Aches"
IT is not much wonder that the mother
in the home has backaches and headaches when you think of the multiplicity of work and worries she has from
morning until night and from week to
But pains and aches come from poisons
in the system and if the kidneys and liver
were doing their duty as filters of the
blood the poisoning would not remain
This is why it is usual to blame thc
kidneys and the liver for backache, headache, rheumatism etc.
The way to get rid of such pains and
aches, then, is by arousing the action of
the kidneys and liver and this is most
promptly and most certainly done by the
use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
By using this popular medicine you can
usually obtain relief in a few hours.
You will realize then the advisability of
using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills once
or twice a week so as to keep these vital
organs active and ensure that the poisonous waste matter is promptly removed
from the system.
In most homes this medicine is kept
constantly on hand for use in case of
emergency.   Not a bad idea, is it?
You will notice that while the price of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills has been
increased to 35 cents, the box now contains 35 pills instead of 25 as formerly.
Likewise Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood is
60 cents a box of 60 pills, instead of 50
cents a box for 50 pills. Edmanson,

Could take Nicolas back for him to
see—he raves about his sister's little
girl and she is not half as sweet as
Nicolas. I have always been half
afraid of men, you know, but he is different somehow. He Is just like a
child sometimes, especially when he
wants something that I think would
not be good for him—he always gels
it, of course."
"He would," 1 agreed, "they always
do." And I tried to picture Leslie Or-
niond of his college days the helpless
cripple that Maudie described.
In all this there was, I must admit,
little to justify my suspicion. But
Maudle's manner meant more than
what she said. Hers is a single-track
mind, nnd, while she was doubtless
quite honesi In saying that Bho never
thought of marriage, her possessive
air, and lhe way In which It slipped
nut Ihal she hud chosen this particular
time for hor holidays because Mrs. Or-
inond was to be with her son, made it
clear enough to mo that she had assumed certain rights nnd responsibilities. Whal Ihere might be between
her and Leslie I could not guess, but
If ihey had been an old married couple
like Murray mid me she could not
have spoken so very differently.
It wns very sad, I thought. For the
presenl It was possibly enough for
Maudie lo have Leslie dependent on
her for his happiness, but In the long
years ihal stretched ahead of her
. . . she was braver than I, I told
myself, had I losl Murray I do not
think I could have taken n really In-
iclllgcnl inieiesl  in lhe Real Estate
Nothing occurred to spoil Maudle's
visit. The weather was hot, but
clear and dry, and all the little outings
I had planned were accomplished without a disappointing incident. Maudie
was a perfect country visitor, she never worried about sunburn or Ian or
clothes, and she enjoyed everything
from our strawberry picnic lo an exceedingly informal tennis tournament
that we got up on the spur of the moment one Saturday afternoon. And
she made friends with all Ihe neighbors in a way that amazed me—"You
do not. know Miss Jones, the Ileal Estate man," she explained when I spoke
of her new-found ablllly to converse
freely with strangers.
For our strawberry picnic we drove
10 a place four miles northeast of here,
where the fire had run through the
previous year and where the wild berries grew In unbelievable luxuriance.
11 Is a fact that as we drove from the
trail to the shady spot where we intended to havo lunch the wheels of the
wagon brought up crushed clusters of
the berries, and Mrs. Mowbray and
Jean said that they had never before
seen them so plentiful.

There is a legend from Norway, that

so full of tales that girls and boys like.
It Is called the legend of the "Gertrude Bird."
It is a woodpecker that Is said to

they had had a longjvalk and fast; and
she pinched a piece off when lo, it

she said, "No, that is too much," and
pinched a piece off it, when the same
thing happeno! Three times it happened, and each time she got more
selfish and hard and stingy. At last,
as she saw how much dough she was
gelling, she suid to the two strangers,

Reason For Optimism
Attention la Drawn to Canada's
Enviable Financial Condition
A spirit of optimism should be man-
llesled nt lhe present lime In view of
lhe fuel. Ihal lhe commerce of Ihe Dominion Is excellent, according lo Hon.
Thomas Low. minister of commerce.
"Why shpuld we not be optimistic?"
Mr. Low asked. "Our exports exceeded our Imports by S 150,000,000, a situation very encouraging for a young
Country like ours. Our commerce
lu 1000 reached $110,000,000 in value,
bul today it reaches $980,000,000. Our
national debt was considerably augmented during lhe war, but It must bo
remembered thai 80 per cent, or II Is
owed lo the people of the Dominion
who receive lhe interest, thus keeping
lhe money In lhe country. Our per-
caplla debt" is lower than Hint ot any
other Country In (lie world. All Ihese
things are an Indication thut we
should  face  Ihe future with  a great
deal of confidence."

Minard's Liniment Heals Cuts
What They Need to Restore Good
Health and Vitality
The woman who feels lired out, who
aches all over when she rises in the
morning, who feels depressed most of
lhe lime, ueeds lho help that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can give her—new,
rich bloud and stronger nerves. The
number of disorders caused by poor
blood Is amazing, and most women aro
careless about the condition of their
blood. Their nerves-are quickly affected; they worry over trifles and do
not obtain refreshing sleep. There
may be stomach troubles and headaches; shortness of breath and a fluttering of the heart. This is a condition that calls for Dr. Williams' Pink
fills, the blood-improving, nerve-restoring tonic. Mrs. William Henry,
Lovett Street, London, Ont., has proved the value of these pills, and says:
"f had a very severe attack of anae.
mla. Dwas always tired and the least
thing would make me sick at the stomach. I could hardly ge about and
suffered terrible pains in my legs from
cramp's. I had no color in my face
and was as white as a sheet. Tho
doctor gave me several kinds of medicine, hut could not understand wfiy I
did not get results from it. Then I
went to a hospital and was there for
three mouths, but came home no better than when I went. My friends
were worried and feared consumption.
While l wns sllll in this condition a
friend advised me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I tried them and after a
time felt they wero helping me, and I
gladly continued their use, and am
thankful to say thnt I am again a well
woman, and I firmly believe that had
it not been for Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills I would not have got better."
The new sales tax will not increase
the price o'f Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
as the company pays the tax. You
can still obtain the pills through any
medicine dealer at 50 cents a box, or
bv mall, post paid, at this price, from
The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

The    Vulgarity    of    the    Display    of
Wealth When  Habits of Thrift
Should be Cultivated
There is a fallacy in a certain school
of economics thai an extravagant government lends lo stimulate thrift In
Ihe Individual. The advocates nf llils
si range theory reach their conclusion
by an intricate and elaborate chain of
reasoning, but their arguments are
confounded by the facts of experience,
which go to show lhat the reverse of
this flieory prevails and thai if lhe
Slate sets an example of extravagant
living and showy expenditure the fever
for spending i.s caught by the Individual and waste breeds waste.
Canada today is suffering from overspending by government. Indulgence
in luxuries Is lhe mode ot the day and
the slate is pouring out money because I be spenders are not checked by
a healthy public opinion and because
over-extravagance Is part of the mentality of the age.
The cure lies within ourselves. Let
us develop habits of thrift and return to the frugal habits of our forebears, let us realize the sheer vulgarity of a display of wealth and the enervation of waste, and the government wil follow suit-. Just so long as
we do not do so the orgy of spending
will be continued, and that road leads
to bankruptcy and absorption.—Montreal Star.
Many Drug Addicts
Claimed   There   Are   From   Ten   to
Fifteen   Thousand   Drug   Users
and Traffickers in Canada
Canada has from ten to fifteen thousand drug addicts and the traffickers
who are carrying on und encouraging
the business are more evil in their effects than the worst of the bootleggers. That was the statement of Dr.
J. A. Amyot, deputy minister ot health
for the Dominion, In the course of an
address at Toronto. The popular impression with regard lo the drug habit
was that it was lhe outcome of prohibition, but that he declared was not
the case, as most of the addicts rango
from 21 to 30 years of age. There
were no old addicts such as confirmed
drinkers, who were cut off by prohibition for all the old addicts were dead.
The drugs had done Ihelr work.
Touching upon lhe problem of venereal disease, Dr. Amyot said the matter was being grappled wiih Iu Canada
more successfully than any other
country he knew of. Thai was the
result of co-operalion on the part of
the provinces.

The above named Society at its
regular meeting on Monday night,
listened to a well thought out and
conclusive address by Rev. Mr. Clark
on Bible teaching In the Publlo
Mrs. Poole, President of the Association, occupied the ehajr. There
was rather a slim attendance owing,
no doubt, to the prevailing sickness
in the homes.
lie v. Mr. Clark spoke from the
standpoint of making good citizens,
which he held was the primary object
of education, and he made It very
clear that ^uch was not possible apart
from re-ligloujf instruction of the child
By this he did not mean the recital
of the Catechism, as of old time, (An
Instance of the extreme and Irrelevant Idea of teaching religion In those
early days, when a father would punish his boy by compelling htm to read
a portion of tht1 writings of iJohn
The speaker allowed that the primary place for laying a foundation In
religious training was the home, and
then the Sunday School, but the Public School, where so mnny hours of
the; child's life are spejit, should contribute Its part UellglouH differences, Mr, Clnrk held, should not hinder the work.
Very Interesting was his comparison of what Is done In this regard
In   tho  various   other  Provinces,
He would not put all the responsl
billty. or tho blame cither, upon tho
educational authorities, for the cltl-
«ns, and particularly the fathers,

their duty.

The past eomos un—childhood
days—happy hours hy fc-he flre-
sldo—their hopea and ]ey«—
and  trials,  too.
You can keep the memory of
their aamea forever fresh by
giving some little part of the
blessings you now enjoy towards a pormanont memorial
tn   everlasting   stone.
The aereal is simply a copper wire
suspended between two high points.
Wherever there are two buildings or
a house and n tree or two trees with
one of them very close to the house,
it relieves one of the necessity of
erecting; one or both of his supports.
The ucrcul should not bc less than
thirty feet in height, nnd not less
than one hundred feet long. It is
not necessnry to have this running
purnllcl to the ground, for It. is better
to hnve tho fur end of your aol'Ottl
us high us possible. The lend-in wire
or drop win- from your unreal, which
connects with the set, should be a
continuous wire from your ucrcul und
should go as direct us possible to the
set. By this I ineun us neur to the
aereal us possible without having to
run your lead-in from one room into
the other.
If the position of tlie buildings or
trees Is such that tbe distuncc between them is greater than 101) feet,
you can still keep your aereal to this
length by lengthening it with a piece
of rope at the fur end of tho aereal.
You should have a. pulley on your
nearest support of. the aereal so as
to be able to pull it right. This und
the far end should be separated by
an insulator, that is the insulator
should be between the wire und rope.
The Insulators can be made at home
of any dry hardwood. They must be
made to stand the strain of the aereal, blocks about 1 1-8 by 2 by 10 in.
will serve this purpose nicely. The
holes should be drilled far enough
from the ends to give proper strength.
Take a block of wood and cut to
thc right dimensions, measure two
inches from one end exactly in the
centre and bore a three-quarter inch
hole. This is for the end that the
rope Is tied. Then on the other end
bore a hole 1 3-4 inches from the
end and in the centre, a quarter inch
In diameter. This is for connecting
your aereal. When this is done give
the block two or three coats of varnish. Make two of these as described.
If you have some wiring cleats made
of porcelain you can tie three, one
after the other, with rope on each
end of your aereal. You can buy
the regular aereal insulators from
80 cents up, but these home made
ones are quite satisfactory for an
amateur receiving aereal.
The aeareal wire should be No. 14
copper wire, either bare or insulated
The bare Is the most used. When
putting up your eareal bo careful
that you do not kink the wire.

Is The West Wortk While?
\ booklet ol tut) pages bearing the above title, written by A. S. lh*n-
nell. oC Swift Current, was issued n few months ugo in which this questtofl
was asked, and, from tho author's Btaudpolnt- answered in vigorous and effective language. The author does not mince matters. While strictly non-
par.tiztin in a political sense, he does nol hesitate io tell Governments, Federal
and Provincial, somo homo truths; lit* makes no distinction between Easl and
Wesl in pointing otil where the!*.1 presenl attitude the one to the other is
wrong; while championing the cause of the Western fai'mer, ho sharply criticizes him lor his attitude and conduct In relation to the solution nr Western
agricultural and economic problems.
"Is the West Worth While?" is a thought-provoking little book, li hits
right out from tho shoulder, Ii Is nol necessary lo fully agree with all tho
opinions expressed, nor with all the conclusions reached, in order m> say that
ii i< a booklet which ran be read with pro III h\ all, and should bo studied by
people both Easl and West, li even a small fraction of Canadians occupying
places of responsibility and influence in the political, financial, Industrial and
agricultural branches of our national life gttVe as careful study lo Canada-'s
outstanding problem of today as Is evidenced by Mr. Bennett's booklet, it is
sale to say thai some radical changes would be quickly effected in our body
Is the West worth while? Unfortunately, a goodly number of much discouraged Western farmers would be inclined to answer the question in the
negative, And in returning such an answer he would be joined by numerous
seli-centred, small-visloned Eastern business men. The trouble with both
these classes is that they full lo look deep enough or far enough abroad lo be
in a position lo give a trustworthy answer.
The West is well worth while—worth while to the men and women iu tho
West, but just as worth while to the financial and manufacturing Easl
Then: is nothing the matter with the country itself. I*, is rich,in resources
almost boundless in extent, and beyond compulation and valuation in dollars
and cents. The people of Canada, East and West, aro alone responsible for
the things thai are wrong with tho West, and which have led people to ask if,
alter all, the West is worth while. And ii they will only make up their minds
to do so, aud will gel together in the right spirit in the doing of it, these
wrongs can be quickly righted, alul an unanimous verdict, in favor of the
West rendered, And a verdict for the West is a verdict for Lho future of
tho whole Dominion.    Without the West the Dominion must stagnate and die.
The first lesson which people must learn, and this Is equally true both
East and West, is that they must rely less on legislation and Governmental
help and more on their own individual efforts and through co-operation as individuals one wiih another. Our chief domestic ills are not political but
economic. True, our economic .situation is vitally and adversely affected at
present, by the international situation, and the settlement of these difficulties
are beyond our own control and musl be left to statesmen, diplomats, and international economists and experts. But domestic economic.-; are our own
concern. The trouble is thai Instead of grappling with them, we have appealed io Governments and Parliaments io do for us what in so ni*m\ respects
we oughl to do for ourselves.
The Eastern manufacturer has for so long relied on the Government to
pro Lee I his business and guarantee his profits by legislative enactments thai
hf has failed to develop the proper self-reliance and business initiative which
alone will bring stability and permanent rather than mushroom growth. As
u result lho average manufacturer is now fearful of even the slightest change
in existing policies and laws. He relics ou them more than he does on himself.
Talcing a leaf out of the Eastern manufacturer's book, and acting on the
principle Ihal whal is.sauce for the goose is likewise sauce for lhe gander,
the Western farmer has in recent years relied lo an alarming extenl and to
his own undoing on Governmental assistance of one kind or another.
Politicians, of course, are lo blame that they allowed themselves lo bo so
Influenced as to proatltUto tho permanent good of all and tho future of Canada
to theso sectional considerations. Tin- final result has been disastrous Governmental and legislative Interference with sound economic laws until today
the economic condition of Canada gives ground for serious disquietude, and
demands a return io old and tried methods whereby ihrough hard work and
Initiative by ihe individual, coupled with an ever Increasing measure of sane
and legitimate co-operation, success will be attained and permanent progress
made, ami which can never be accomplished hy leaning on Governments to
do what the people must do for themselves.

Tin- feasibility of the route from nn

proved by the 832 miles of steel already laid, and by the tostlmony of .1.
II. and .1. \V. Tyrell, civil engineers,
who gave their evidence before lhe
Senate Committee of 1920 from their
own personal oxamlnntlon of ihe
country. The route also runs through
ii country which is rich in minerals,
whoso hikes and rivers teem with ilsli

of Stefansson, roam tho plains.
What; then, of the mlioage? The
distance from Nelson to Liverpool Is
nboul the same as from Montreal to
Liverpool, about 3,000 miles. By the
present route, however, there is a distance of approximately 1,000 miles
from Port Arthur to Montreal. Speak-
ing generally this is Hie distance that
would be saved, although from some
points lhe saving would be from 100
lo 300 miles more. Roughly, 800
miles of this distance ore land miles,
und mil haulage is about seven limes
as heavy ns water haulage. Taken
altogether this would menn un immense saving on nil grain going by

Increasingly clear thai while the primary purpose of national parks is not

areas lor the | pie.    Vet because the

almost universal one; Hie world Is
making u pulli to their gales and In-
cidentally bringing many direct nnd
indirect benefits. During the past

Reports of its beautiful scenery were
the cause of bringing many hundreds
of people to Canada from the United
Stales. In spite of a wet season and
other drawbacks over 3,000 cars entered Banff and Kootenay Parks from the
United States. None of these visitors spent less than five days in Can-
ada, many of them spent considerably
more nnd n large number declared
their intention of returning next year
for a long holiday among lhe mountains.
The growth In travel, however, Is
nol confined to thc national parks. A
similar increase in visitors was reported from many parts of the Dominion, particularly from those provinces
which have undertaken special publicity nnd good roads campaigns. According to reports recently published
In the daily press the annual tourist
revenue of British Columbia bus now
reached the astonishing total of $311,-
000,000. or a sum equal to the total
annual mineral production of that
province. It must be remembered,
too, that Hie revenue from tourists i.s
widely distributed among all classes
of people nnd helps to build up lhe
prosperity of both town and country.
Figures carefully worked out by publicity experts indicate thut out of
every dollnr spent by thc tourists approximately one-third goes for food
and ultimately finds lis way into lhe

Tills peaceful penetration of Canada

A   meeting   of   Agassiz   Parent-Tea
chers'   Association   was   held   on   Wednesday,  30th Jan.    Mr. H.  Brown occupied  tho -chair.
Minutes of last meeting were read
by   the   Secretary,
After a small amount of business
had been Vlscussed, the Rev. James
Deway was asked to take the chair.
A debat on "Tlie Discontinuance of
^Travelling Salesmen would bo an Economic Advantage" ,was then gone
Into, Mr. W. A. Jones leading, off on
the affirmative. He sought to prove
that In the course or evolution under
which o vary thing was going, that the
travelling salesman was non-essential
The housewife (Instead of giving her
orders to the Grocer's boy who used
to call) phoned hen order. Giving as
an illustration to bear out hla statements tho fact that T. Pertman aa-i
Co., wholesale druggists, had cut out
all travelling salesmen, and the customer now received the benefit. Mr.
Spencer, leader of the negative, rose
to refute Mr. Jones* a;*gument. If
you had not the travelling salesman
you would have the circular letter,
posters and other expensive means of
advertising. That prices are discussed and set by the Creditmen'g Association if we had no travellers, the
confidential, or head of the house.
would set the prices. The traveller
settles disputed, protects his firm and
cleans up difficulties.- Then again
there aro some goods which cannot
be wold without demonstration, i.e.,
shoes, autoa and Insurances, Very
few people would ever buy nn insurance policy if It were not for salesmen. One firm who manufactured
typewriters tried to dispense with
their salesmen, Dropped the price of
their machines from $125 to $85 and
very nearly went broke. Salesmen nre
needed tt keep the factories humming, to introduce new goods and In
general keep the retail man up- to
Mr. Brown next took up the .debate
in favor of the affirmative. Before
we had the newspaper we had the
Tiwn crier, but he was now obsolete.
So the travelling salesman would.be
like the man left standing ' by the
altar, because his business had eloped. The travelling salesman's expenses, Including tips, had nil to b"
paid out of goods. During tho Great
War tho first men called to tho colors as non-essential to business were
thc travelling salesmen, as during
•war economy was essential. Several
of the merchants which be comes to
Weal with nre cajoled and argued into buying, Then the traveller orders
for tho merchant, and ho finds himself stocked up with a lot of dead

onto tho general public at reduced
prices, The merchant In many cases

but tho travelling salesman proves he
is holplng nil.
Mr. Jones, in a tlve minutes' reply
as to the slowing up of factories If
the travelling salesman were put
away. Woolwprth nnd Co. wore a
proof of thc opposte. They hail n
chain of twelve thousand stores all
over tho land turning ove r sixty million dollars delivering all the time a
better nnd cheaper quality of goods
without any travelling salesmen. The
same could be said of T. Eaton nnd
Co. Yet they get tho business. Travellers are like trained soldiers ; they
go out to break down our fences. As
to insurance. State Insurance was
tho only solution, ns In the Old Land.
Many of tho policies which are forced
on the people by travellers fall
through after a few paymests and
the Company gets thjrf benefit. Three
men could b0 employed in a factory
for the cost of one on tho road.
Mr. Spencer then replied in a five
minutes' argument. Volume determines prices, and quality and production rqdnced prices. Po<d & Co. sent
out saltsmen and built-up through
them the largest automobile business
In the country. Circular letters aud
posters do not count. Will Insurance
Companies pay a "inn $1000 if ho is
no good ? They will pay $5000 to tho
mas who can bring in $35,000, It is
good business. Tho travelling salesman has no holiday. He Is olten up
at 4:30 a.m. It Is true he may only
spend 5 on 6 hours in selling, but he
has to bring along his samples and
provd to the merchant It will bo good
business to buy. Wo could do without salesmen, ns we could do without
schools, but it Is not a question of
doing without, it is what is essential
and economic, and as to filling up a
storekeeper's shelves with dead stock,
it would be poor business, because it
would be his last order.
The debate was adjudged by Miss
Rankin, Mr. Hicks asd Dr. McCaffrey,
who awarded" the honors to Mr. Jones
and Mr. Brown,  for the affldmatlve
