Trying to cut down expenses
459
National Cash
Registers pay for
themselves out of
part of what they
save.
New business conditions have forced every merchant to face the
problems of reducing expenses.
Thousands of merchants have solved the problem by using new
model National Cash Registers.
These cash registers reduce costs of selling, delivery, and bookkeeping. They stop expensive leaks and losses. They also point
the way to other economies by giving merchants, every day,
necessary business facts
1 Sales made by each clerk.
2 How goods are moving in each department.
3 Amount of capital tied up in outstanding accounts.
4 Volume and profit on credit business compared with volume
and profit on cash business.
5 Total of money paid out.
These facts show how, when, where, and how much to reduce expenses.
A National Cash Register is the only machine that issues a
receipt, indicates, adds, prints, classifies, and distributes records
at the time of the sale, all in one operation. No figure work.
No delays. No mistakes. Just read the totals

BUSINESS OUTLOOK IS
BRIGHTER
There has developed a very gratifying optimism as to future business, and in the various lines there
seems to be evidence of future activity and better times.
The genera! tone of the press and
business journals note hopeful signs
of returning prosperity.
Government officials, whose duty
is is to study and analyze business
conditions, are predicting better
times
Bankers and merchants arc reporting a better business condition.
tin clouds are disappearing, and
those whose husiness it is to keep
iu closest touch with the business
puis,, of their locality and the country generally are optimistic as to the
future.
European purchasers have stimulated the grain trade.
Cotton buying and manufacturing
are again taking on an active tone.
Shoe factories are turning out
more shoes.
Lumber manufacturers are hopeful.
Steel producers have passed their
dull season.
Business as a whole is more optimistic.
Business men who have been operating with caution, avoiding speculation, buying risks and the chance
of overstocking, are again placing
orders more freely, clearly showing
the spread of optimism.
The appalling expenditures of war
has had its effect in heavy taxation,
which of necessity must be depressing.
We luce been pas>iing through
one of the many periods of depression that most of necessity come, but
we have from all indications passed
the zero point and are again on the
road to normal conditions.

Newly elected president Vancouver

company with M. V. Wilson, his brother, in 1912, In June 1918 the present

PHILADELPHIA     WHOLESALE
GROCERS PLAN CAMPAIGN
TO STIMULATE BUSINESS
Drive to Promote Distribution and
Sales Takes Form For an Early
.. Start
The grocery trade of the Philadelphia district has developed a
comprehensive, direct and concrete
plan for the stimulation of business.
The consuming public embraced
within the scope of the plan numbers in all. 500,000—the population
in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and
I).da ware that is for the most part
resident iu centres of 5,000 and more
although the main field of operation as defined in the basic plan,
comprises primarily the population
of Philadelphia and vicinity, numbering 2,500,000.
The plan is known as The Advocate Sales Campaign, under the auspices of The Wholesale Grocers'
Sales Company of Philadelphia, Tt
is directed bv A. B, Ends, who brings
to bear on it an experience acquired
in such undertakings during the past
•10 years. The Trustee is Harry V.
Sharp, Treasurer and Genera] Man
ager of The Wholesale Grocers'
Sales Company.
The Campaign is one that carries
sale of all the merchandise involved
through the familiar channels of distribution directly to the consumer,
on whom it brings to bear the direct
pressure of a popular contest for
awards amounting in value to
$50,000.
Primarily a sales campaign, the
plan i.s elective of package products
of the best quality, only one article
in one line heing admitted, although
manufacturers of several allied products, if all represent the highest
standard of merit in their respective
fields, can make separate contracts
for every specialty.
The terms of the contract with
the manufacturer predicate immediate inert ase in sale and distribution
of the product. The Campaign admission charge, designed to cover all
costs involved in the Campaign proper, is $5,500, of which $500 is in cash
and $5,000 is in the merchandise,
valued at the net price to jobber, to
be delivered f. o. b. Philadelphia,
with price protection guaranteed by
the manufacturer for a period of 30
days.
The 300 expert salesmen of the 21
wholesale grocery houses composing
the Wholesale Grocers' Sales Company of Philadelphia, immediately
on receipt of the goods, sell them to
the retailers and then, over a period
extending to the close of the year,
continue to push an intensive sales
'campaign on the product. This
feature represents exploitation of the
trade's regular distributive facilities
in their most concentrated and most
highly developed sales capacity.
Meanwhile, 3,500 leading retailers
are being selected to act as agents
of the Campaign with authority to
nominate from 10 to 25 housewives
as Contestants in the $50,000 Redemption Contest, although it will

GUARANTEES AGAINST PRICE
DECLINE
Arguments For and Against the
Policy
Arguments for and agafinst the
practice of giving guarantees against
e customers come.   The women    price declini  as carried on in the
folk of Chattanooga know that whistle. Also, their children know it.
Holy Redya all carry a certain kind
of confection known, in the technical
terminology ot children, as an all
day   smker.    |j   sells   lor  a   penny.
Most mothers nearly always have
pennies in their apron pockets and
almost any mother can he inveigled,
nearly ever) day, into spending at
least om- of these pennies fur an nll-
da>'-sucker. Experience in Chat
tanoogs has demonstrated the psychological fad that all that is mves

of Suburbia.
various industries are set forth in a
bulletin issued by the Chamber Com-
merce of the United States.
It ia pointed out that the trade
practice   of   guaranteeing   against.
price decline is used in a wide variety of forms, such as guarantee
against decline until date of delivery, guarantee against decline until
a fixed dale, guarantee against decline until the goods are sold, guarantee against decline of vendor's
price only, ami guarantee against decline of i lie market price.
Arguments for the Practice.
Here are some of the leading arguments favoring the practice from the
manufacturer's standpoint as contained iii the bulletin : —
"It secures orders for his product
iii advance of the needs of the purchaser, enabling him to run his factory more steadily ami arrange the
U8C of his labor and raw materials ta
better advantage; enables him to
ship his product as soon as finished,
and avoid th*' expense nf warehousing it: secures iarger orders ami a
larger volume of husiness; makes it
possible for him to ship in carloads
ami avoid the expense of handling
smalh r shipments; assists in marketing in »v brands; reduces the number
ot salesmen's trips, since an entire
season's business can he secured in
one order; prevents cancellations in
to buy in large units; prevents manufacturers from selling direct to consumers, since the later cannot order
in advance; necessary where goods
are shipped long distances.
Arguments Opposed to It.
"Arguments in general opposed to
th" practice are as follows:—That it
is unsound, unfair business practice.
Unsound because it creates an arti-
fieial volume of orders for the manufacturer, on all of whieh his amount
of net return is uncertain until a considerable time after all fabricating
processes have been finished; unfair
because it puts the wholesaler's and
retailer's just shares of liability for
market Hud nations upon the manufacturer, instead of preserving the
equitable rule of requiring each trade
agency to carry its own burden of
liability.
"That lhe practice tends to keep
prices up. because if a considerable
number of manufacturers in one line
of production have guaranteed prices, and have, therefore, placed themselves in a position to suffer loss if
prices decline, their entire influence
will naturally be exerted to prevent
a decline.
"That if a majority of the manufacturers in one line of production
have guaranteed prices and will los,^
if they decline, the price cannot be
reduced, because none of that particular product ean he secured except
through the agency of the manufacturers who have guaranteed and who
are hound to try to maintain the
prices until the liability under their
guarantee has been discharged.
"In an attempt to arrive at some
conclusion in this controversy there
a falling market; is a strong means are certain features of this form ol
of getting business; and is necessary sale transaction upon which both
to manufacturers of bulky product    sides agree,  and which  should be
difficult of storage,
"Arguments favoring the practice
from the wholesaler's ami retailer's
standpoints are as follows: It protects them against loss due to a falling market; permits early orders,
moids delays in shipment; ensures
ample stocks to meet unusual demands; permits ordering in large
lots to save freight; permits placing
orders more freely; responsibility for
fixing prices should rest on the manufacturer because he is better posted concerning the prices of raw materials and primary markets; wholesaler's margin of profit is too small
carefully considered.
"The manufacturer's guarantee
involves him in a liability of unknown degree; it introduces an element of speculation and uncertainty
into his business; according to the
law of a fair division of trade risk,
he is carrying the burden of the
wholesaler's business and oftentimes
that of the retailer, over which he
has no control.
"The affirmative statements that
the practice favored purchasing
'freely,' carrying 'ample stocks,' ordering in 'large quantities,' and still
did   not   encourage   excessive   and
HUM      I >' IIM'   '     ta,'!' '   ■ J       ■     ■      ... .-- ' W
to risk  market  reductions; permits speculative buying, are difficult to
the handling of goods on a smaller reconcile when considered in connec-
margin; ami therefore makes lower tion with the fact that, the terms of
prices   to  consumer;  enables  small transaction were such that the buyer
wholesalers to compete with larger could not suffer loss, no matter how
concerns; enables small wholesalers much he purchased."

This question is asked merely to demonstrate a fact. Your brand of shaving soap is
advertised and you want it.
For the same reason, many millions of
people have made Postum as well known as
oranges, Grape-Nuts as well known as
prunes, and Post Toasties the most popular
Corn Flakes in Canada.
And there's a further reason why the
successful grocer specializes on Postum,
Grape-Nuts and Post Toasties.
The Postum advertising policy is not
erratic. The systematic and uninterrupted
appearance of Postum, Grape-Nuts and Post
Toasties messages throughout
the year eliminates all risks on
the part of the grocer,guarantees f99|
quick and profitable turnover
on every package to the consumer.

B  C. DUMP ACT MAY CHECK
INFLUX OF U. S. APPLES
••I),,,, to the high duty imposed on
npples by the ('auadiau government
an,l the'new 'dump*' act of British
Columbia, it is predicted that ship-
,m>nt< of Washington apples to Van-
c Hiver, \ ictoria and other markets
will be extremely limited this year."
According to the Act, if a B. C.
dialer buys at a priee considered below the cost of production, the dealer is compelled to pay the government the difference.
The government officials estimated the cost of production at $1.50 the
box and to this is added 25 cents for
the grower's profit. This estimate
was computed from war-time costs
and does not represent the actual
cos) of production this year.
This duty is assessed against all
boxed apples irrespective of grade,
so thai if a Vancouver dealer buys
(' grade apples at $1.25 from a Washington grower he must pay a dump
tax of 50 cents per box. The title,
"dump duty." originated through
the law. which was passed by parliament for the purpose of preventing
apples and other fruits from the
States being dumped on the markets
of British Columbia, to the detriment
of home-grown products.

CANNED PEACHES
Southern < alifornia will produce
approximately 1,100.000 eases of
canned peaches this year, compared
with 1.500.000 cases last year, according to figures secured from the
Southern California Canuors* Bureau.
Of this yeai 's prospective pack in-
cluding a carryover on Juno 1 of
315,000 cases, aproxiraately 60 per
cent, has been sold.
DRIED FFUIT
The position of the tlried fruit industry of California appears to have,
strengthened steadily, and fruit
-"•rowers prettv generally are viewing
the future with real optimism. This
sentiment is voiced simultaneously
by the California Peach, and Fig
Growers and the California Associated Raisin Company h.'+h of
,"hich announce that 19W stocks of
peaches, figs and raisins either have
been cleaned up entirely of are practically disposed of.
The peach and fig growers say that
not only has the old crop been sobl,
I ut that recent buying activity,
which is continuing, has made it
necessary to withdraw five grades of
peaches from the market.
Possible at $2.00 a Year. ■in

WHEN TO PAINT
The majority of our retail mer
chant s have not yet  fully realise I
that   paint   is   a   stir*'   seller   for
TWELVE   months  in   every   year.
When spring approaches   they stock
up in all lines and colour*, placi
these in from line positions, prepare
special window displays and adviae
their customers to'paint now." Bul
when fall sets in, the stocks beconu
depleted and little notice is taken
ot this t'H spring. All ihe j ear
round the paint department in your
husiness should be well stocked.
Keep a full supply of paints, status
varnishes, brushes, etc, and push
your sabs just as energetically in
the fall as you would m the early
part ol ih. year !Ion "1 lei 5our ad

paint profit will stop also and yom
customers will nut pointing aside iii!

Getting Your Bread Out on the
Next Express After the Order
Has Been Received
That's the definition that Mr. A Geilfuss gave
the bakers at Birmingham of prompt shipping
service.
And it's one of the requirements of success,
But suppose when you recieve a "ship-by-next-
express" order you can't fill without cutting
in on your regular supply needed for other
trade. What then?
Then, the25-MinuteDough-and the emergency
is met. In less than three hours vour bread is
ready.
Not the least of the advantage of this quick
formula is the splendid quality of Bread it
produces, the kind that wins and holds trade.
Ask our representative or write us for the
formula.

BREAD USED IN WATCHMAKING
Two barrels of flour, or almost
400 pounds, arc used every week in
making watches at a well-known factory in New England, whieh turns
out from two to three thousand
watches a week. Since a baker uses
about three pounds of flour to five
loaves of bread, it follows that for
evry watch the maker uses the
equivalent of almost a third of a
loaf. The flour is made into dough,
and the dough is used to handle the
screws, rivets and other small parts.
The watch maker has a lump of
dough on hand and when he wishes
to examine a serew he jabs the piece
of dough on it. Then turning it
over, he has a good chance to look
at it with his watchmaker's microscopic eyeglass.

Tl •• practical effects of the flexible
weight were very apparent during
(I e critical years ol 1916 and 1917,
luit when tin- price of wheal was
conl olli il by Ihe Government, thi y
di enied it \\ ise also to institute a
rule tnr every province regarding
I hi H \' il ' eight ni bread, for the
ii ivioits reason that they desired to

have got the extra 20 ounces for
their dollar in the first reduction
above mentioned, for the reason that
the bakers would not have been justified in making the full reduction to
the second step and therefore the
public would have been deprived of
their extra 20 ounces to the dollar
during the intermediate period.
The principle advantage therefore of the flexible weight method
is that movements in an upward or
a downward direction can be made
quite gradual by fluctuating the
weight or the price, which means
that the public" can be given the ad-
vautagi as sunn as possible, whieh
is a very important factor in the
bread business.
'I hi re has been some sharp criticism ol the flexible weight principle
on the pari of retail bakers who
claim that it creates chaotic conditions in the trade. With this contention many do not agree, claiming
that there is nothing to prevent cooperation between the various members of the trade to secure definite
conditions and that if all agree to
make, a certain size of loaf, they ean
dn so, this being far better than having the size definitely pegged by legislation.

HONEY ROCK CAKES
'! lbs of flour
1 lb. of butter
2 ozs. of powder
1 lb. of currants
Lemon  essence
1   Hi of  honey
Milk as required
Colour
Proceed   as   usual.     After   railing the butter into the riour make a
hay. add a little milk, then put the
honey in and work the honey up well
into the milk until all the grains of
the  honey are well dissolved, then
add colour, eseiice. currants and sufficient milk to shake all together to
a free dough.    Be careful in adding
milk, as the honey, when dissolved,
will "give" considerably and cause
the paste to "sweat."    Keep it on
the firm side rather than otherwise.
Scale off into required sizes, place
roughly on to well-greased trays, and
bake  in a steady oven.   All goods
containing honey must not be over-
baked or the honey will give them a
decided  hiunt   taste.    One does not
prei end   that   these   are   first-class
go ids, but where a baker has a stock
of homy on band for which be has
not much use now it will be found
a very convenient way to get rid of
it at a small profit instead of a loss
The same recipe, made a little tighter, with a little more powder added,
will make a very passable rice cake.
Of course, in that ease, leaving out
the   currants  and  egg-washing the
tops, afterwards dipping them into
