Floor
Dressing
Clean Floors - Clean Goods
You can't have one without the other. Imperial
Floor Dressing keeps both clean at all times. It
holds the dust to the floor, where it is easily
swept up and removed without any of it rising
and settling on your goods, your counters or
your display shelves.
Imperial Floor Dressing will not gum or evaporate. It
prevents cracking and checking, and is a sanitary, efficient preservative of wood, linoleum or oil cloth. One
gallon will treat about 700 square feet of floor surface
and one application will last for weeks.
Stores, where the floors are treated with Imperial Floor
Dressing, always present the spick and span appearance
thnt attracts discriminating customers. Use it and display it. There is a large, profitable market in your territory.    Our salesman will be glad to tell you about it.

EFFECTIVE RESTRICTION.
The passing of a resolution in favor of effective restriction of Oriental
-immigration savors of an attitude
of complacency dangerous to the
solution of a problem so vitally important to the people of Canada.
Such a resolution but favors a
system already in cxistance, since
power to prohibit certain classes is
embodied in the Immigration Act.
The fact that certain classes of
their immigrants are undesirable, is
well known both to Chinese andJap-
anese authorities, who sympathise
with Canada's difficulty in regard to
immigration, and who would have
no hesitation in cot-operating with
her in effecting a satisfactory and
workable basis for entry into this
country of a restricted number of
their citizens. It is unnecessary to
reiterate here why the present influx
of Orientals is undersirable. Sheaves
of evidence have flooded this office
for months past, illustrating the
danger of this unrestricted influx.
and the Provincial Board, Retail
Merchants' Association, iias advocated the absolute exclusion of further Oriental immigration into British »'olnmlua. Ever since the Duncan Convention last year, this subject has been assiduously followed
up until o\ory branch in the province is solid in support of the ex-
elusion movement. Every assistance
has been given W. G. McQuarrie,
member for New Westminster, whose
resolution tabled in the Federal
Mouse that legislation be enacted to
exclude further Oriental immigration into Canada, was recently a-
mended by the Minister oi Immigration to "effective restriction." Mr.
MteQuarrie has personally expressed
his thanks to the local office of the
R.M.A in a letter to the Provincial
Secretary "for the splendid work
you arc doing in this matter."
Organized labour throughout Canada has been influenced to support
Mr. McQuarrie *s resolution through
the efforts of the Retail Merchants'
Association.
Provincial Secretaries of this organization wired Hon. W. ],. McKeu-
zie King to request that his government give this niattei* the serious consideration it urgently calls for, and
many are ihe evidences of their determined efforts to assist in over
coming   this very    real menace to
Western   civilization.       In   spite   of
the amended resolution, the R M, A.
will continue in their determination
to assist in effectively restricting thia
excessive immigration, if indeed no
better   solution   of   the   problem   is
forthcoming, 1

The Mo'- il Kvati'in in tin 1 nited States has been

,s plainly in the best interest of the community,
"''• :it k'asl  that   portion of it  which believes in CXCl"
'■ising reasonable care as regards their property.
In 'anada the .Mutual system of Hiv insurance
; as hitherto been worked upon rather a limited scale
ami has followed largely the practices obtaining
among stock companies which has militated against
(heir success. In ■"The Chronicle" of .Montreal under date of Mar.'h 'JIth last, there is a list of some
eighty-six companies 'Canadian and foreign) whieh
have be. n either absorbed, liquidated or retired from
business in this country. Of this list seventy-four
were --lock companies and twelve Mutual companies.
This appears to he pretty much the same in the United States, where the percentage of retiremnt of
Mutual Companies is considerably lower than that of
the sto.k companies, but the larger and more substantial of each class arc the same today as they were
fifteen years ago, the. retirements being confined,
particularly in the ease of mutuals, to the very small
frv.
There arc over two thousand six hundred (2600)
Mutual Kiiv Companies in the United States today.
The bet. r known being the Now England Mutuals,
seniors and juniors, who first came into being because of the difficulty of manufacturers) in securing
(he recognition and assistance they desired from the
regular insurance companies, The method of underwriting pursued by these Xew England companies
was a radical departure from existing practices, and
at the time, it was generally believed that they
would not succeed. The results, however, were beyond the most sanguine expectations and this New
England group of companies blazed the trail whieh
ihe old line companies have sin»*c endeavored to follow with varying degrees of success.
What the New England Companies have done for
manufacturers, other Mutuals, organized mostly in
Ihi West, are accomplishing for the general public
and with an equally favorable record. The Executive of the Retail Merchants of Canada, with an eye
to benefitting their members, made arrangements for
a Fire Insurance Department, haek in 1920, guaranteed hy the Northwestern .Mutual Fire Association
of Seattle, which is one of the larger Mutuals opei*-
nting in the United States.   Under this arrangement
ihe   members   of   the   Merchants'  Association   are
benefited in a remarkable degree as regards the cost
of their insurance,

Recently, the action of a certain
organization, resulted in saving a
i onsdderable sum of money to a dealer in toilet preparations, stationery,
etc.
In addition, an opportunity to join
said organization, operating for that-
dealer s benefit has been proffcrred
him.
i'he question is. should be avail
himself of such an opportunity, as
a token of gratitude, or after expressing thanks in writing, complain
that "business docs not at present
warrant the expenditure, necessary
for affiliation fee." (note the
amount saved this dealer was equivalent to three years' membership fees
to the organization ! I
it is plainly evident that prompt
and efficient action having " provided'' sufficient funds for said dealers
to become affiliated, the most reasonable method of expressing his
gratitude, is tt) immediately become
a member of an organization, which,
has rendered and is rendering such
as he, a very real service.
I If course it is the R, .M. A. we're
talking about. We have received
man} expressions of gratitude for
service rendered, but why should the
other    fellow    he   askcl   to   foot    ill"

KNIT GOODS
Knit goods offer the retail merehanl his greatest opportunity in the
Kpring of the iyear when outdoor
sport-- and recreations demand this

knitted garmcnl i.s almost indispensable, and it must appear that dealers in these garments are not on to
their husiness if the\ do nol bring ine
merits of knitted goods to the atten*
lou of |heir customers sufficeutly to
result in a health} volume of sales
The possibilities for extra sales in
the kuil goods department are sj»

or if those who wear them do not buy
more of them, it is simply because
their attention is nol more frequently   directed   to  lliem   hy   displays  of
garments  thai  embrace both style
and usefulness,
Regarding    the    woollen    market,
st\l.s ami  general  conditions,  the
ing knitting company, expressed
hereunder, are of more than passing
interest.
"Like our many customers from
this coast to the Atlantic, we have
been hoping for the past year to
find the prices of high-grade yarns
to show an weaeknng. But true to
the predictions of our British spinners we find there has been a very
steady upward trend, and we congratulate ourselves upon having followed iheir advice and placed our
orders a full year ago, and thereby
arc enaoied to offer those customers
the benefil of our early purchasing.
Even today we are urged to place
yarn contracts for year 1923, as the
market conditions indicate further
rises.
Regnrdng procuring orders from
the trade we found conditions on the
prairies show a decided inclination
to withhold placing until crop outlook warrants. Throughout British
Columbia, Ontario. Quebec, and Maritime Provonces, however, the re-
turns have been considerably in excess of 1921. Bathing suit husiness on
this coast and at all watering places
across 'anada has been more than
double any previous year's placing,
due. we find, to the preference for
pure woollen garments and the fact
that the making of a bathing suit is,
today more than ever before a mat
of style and tit worked in pleasing
color combinations. The popular demand for the present wear in both
ladies' and gentlemen's kntted outer

Know the Leathers
A knowledge of the sporl leather is generally needed, li is fori un
ate that the unprecedented demand
lor sporl footwear finds the mosl
suitable and favored leathers al a
lower price than they have hecn for
years, Mosl ol these leathers are as
\o\\ some are lower in price than
before the war. Then, too, the finishes which arc now in ureal favor
'!■■ nol add in the expense over ordinary   tillisllcs
The mosl talked of leathers in the
new sport shoes are buck, elk, horse,
calf, veal and kip. These vary in
.■os? according as to whether they
jii" the genuine, as their name implies, or are side leather finished to
eloai i> resemble the genuine. It
should not be gathered from this that
side     leather     Is     UOl     sel'V |eea h|e.     01*
that n lacks an_\  esesntial qualities
for excellent footwear.
Most Favoured Leathers
llight ai this minute '*the craze"
sn ealled is for smoked leathers and
eoffee shades ,if elk, horse and calf,
and   while   and   pearl   buck.       The
smoked leathers are very popular for
the new footwear. In tin* best smoked calf, the leather is actually smoked ; likewise with the best elk and
Veals and glazed horse. There is a
lighl leather dressing finish over the
smoked calf.
Little Genuine Elk
Phere is very little genuine elk.
Rlk leather, such as we see in most
sporl .shucs, is the grain split of a
lighl cowhide. The finish is durable,
bul it needs a cleaner specially
adapted for it. to clean it properly
and mellow tin* leather. Hlk leather
of the variety mentioned wears well
ami should give good service.
White buck is one of the most popular of our sport leathers'. It is
used in font wear for a large varety
of sport ami outing wear. A number of leading and smaller tanners
are turning it oul in large quantities*
One of th    leadine tanners makes a
[• white buck which is easily cleaned.
Hi has made a discovery iu tanning
and finishing this leather so that it
can be cleaned with luke-warm water
snap and cloth, or soft hrush so that
the leather does not harden when
dried. 1.1 is restored to its original
appearance, soft and mellow, thus
proving a boon to golfers, tennis
players and others who have regard
for the appearance of their footwear.

"■■raHy known or considered  by
■ average baker,
'' all know of th.- changes wo
1 "" passing from the old crop
"*'! ,u 'In* now. and tho difficulties
*>*• <• encounter in baking the tirsi ol
tin oi w crop under ortlinarv conditions. Of late years this has been
quite t.'' ni ra Hy o\ crcome by t he
gradual introduction of the new
wheat into ih<* old, instead of jumping all bI on ■• from old to new wheat
Hour, ll is not generally known,
however, that there is a change taking place in wheat the year around.
I*'l"ur is generally stored before
bal iug 'ii allow it to age, This aging process goes mi in the wheat as
well as in 'lie flour. There is a con
tinuous change taking place in wheat
whether in its original form or in the
form of flour. Just as you have noted
tl. lai of ageing in the first flour
11 nMi ; he in w crop, we have found
• . ■ ■ •■ i*. •mentation period shortens ..- the flour beoomes older. In
:., *. v '■ found this shortening of tho
time to be about five minut< 8 per
niontl r one hour during the year.
This means that a flour having a
fermentation period of five hours in
• 11 fall will need only four hours the
m st sumnu r.
HiRvo you over not iced how fast
\ our doughs fermeni in July and
August? And again when you get
on to tho new wheat flour, how th.'
fermentation neriod is lengthened.
This rapid fermentation in the
first t'ase is due to the ageing process
which has taken place in cither the
\\ | , nt or floiir.    We do not  know
• *j u hat tak*s place during this
, huntie, In fact, i! is the miller's
problem, just as determining when
a dough is ready is the baker's problem Wither of t'hesi problems is
thoroughly understood. The miller
is stud*-, ing his problem and tho baker
must also study his*.
Changing Conditions
Por the baker to counteracl this
shortening of the fennkmtation
p, : iod it requires a change cither m
lini,. nr in the ingredients or his
foi inula
fiencrall.v tho sliortenng is nol
noted by tho baker until suddenly
his dim dis appoar loo old, He has
not made changes to eliminate the
gradual shortening, and after three
or four months, or in December, he
noti -i's his bread is not up to the
,lsi'*d standard. It just means that
the time required for fermentation
has shortened fifteen to twenty minutes. He has not considered this and
may think his difficulties caused by
any one of many things.
lie will notice the same thing
again after t'hree or four months, or
in April or May. This same condition will appear again in midsum-
iii' f.
There .are two methods of overcoming this: the baker may shorten
the time of risings, which he usually
dislike5" to do on account of the rearrangement Of his Shop system; ul-
lie may change the amounts of some
of the ingredients of his formula in
order to adapt it to the shortened
fermentation period.
AIRLESS BUTTER.
Good results have followed a method of making butter whieh eliminates air from the product. During
the ordinary churning process a
quantity of air is forced into the
butter; and even after the butter is
ready for the consumer about one-
tenth of ils volume consists of air.
The air thus entangled certainly
contains dust and i* is likely to contain germs as well. As a result tho
butter soon becomes rancid unless
kept at a low temperature. Dairymen have tried in many ways to produce butter which would remain
sweet without the use of a preser-
vat ive.
The best and most practical results
have been obtained by a method
which i.s simple and inexpensive. It
consists iu driving out the air by the
means of carhonic acid gas, the carbon dioxide of the chemist. The gas
is forced into the churn at the bottom and. being heavier than air, expels the air al the top of the churn.
The cream is then churned in an atmosphere of carbon dioxide; and tin*
butter when packed for shipmeul
stiM contains n smal proportion of f « *W! <!|!

PERMANENCE IN BUSINESS
Detrimentals of "Keep Moving"
By John M. Hartley.
The hills and valleys of readjust-
ment are leaving sore spots m i very
trade.   In the retail baking business
we are feeling certain lingering ei
fects.    Comes   around   the   merrj
month of May and the renewal ol
leases to those who rent.   At leasi
in the larger cities far too  many
iradcsmm   rent,    That   very   fact
nurses a feeling at' easualnesa that is
not good for us.    During the lasi
few  years  we  have  found  that   i!
leaves us at the mercy of the land-
Lords.   To build up a good business
otters  temptation   to   put   on   ft* *
screws.    I know ii few  bakers who
have to move or pa}   rent  that  is
worse   lhan   enforced   partnership
We   face  two distinct   trade  <"> i -
undue   rental   costs   that   bring
mediate loss, and a  feeling of ini
permani ncy that dees our trade no
good.
Advertised "For Sale
1 think about the shortest think
ing group of alleged business men in
this country are the realtors, Another ease where competition 11 **
added an enormous overhead to i li ■
cost of living. A few good streets
in this city are being boosted to an
early grave. I know one fine si reel
where nearly every other legitimate
husiness has hecn advertised for sa; i
during the last few weeks, A litl ■
enquiry found thai expiring leases
could not In* renewed except under
impossible conditions. Km- the last
two years then- has been an influx
of candy and ice cream parlors, boot ■
blacking joints, and other hole in
the-wall businesses. Basic food
and necessity stores have moved out,
One baker had his rent doubled two
years since and was refused a long
lease. This year he '_rHs nailed some
more. He is finding it hard to pav
fancy retail rent for manufacturing
purposes. A bakery is going out of
business because the owner can make
about as much renting his good
corner store as he can by coolinuing
business.
Being Crowded Off Main Street"
There is one baker who wins, and
more would have a choice such as
he lias if more invested in their
buildings, But if this high pressure
renting keeps up too much, recog
nizeil business centres will BUITer,
Side .streets will have to. he the refuge of legitimate business, whieh |S
far from being a healthy condition.
