Keep down the dust cloud-
Ordinarily the broom stirs up more dust than it
collects—but not when floors are treated with
Imperial Floor Dressing. You can then sweep
without filling the atmosphere with dust, as Imperial Floor Dressing holds it to the floor where
it is easily gathered up and disposed of.
Diluting is practically eliminated in stores where Imperial
Floor Dressing is used, and counters, show cases and merchandise present a clean, attractive appearance at all
times.
Imperial Floor Dressing is a sanitary preservative for
wood, linoleum or oil cloth. It does not gum or evaporate and is most economical. One gallon will treat from
500 to 700 square feet of floor surface and one application will last for weeks.
Display Imperial Floor Dressing prominently. With your
own floor as a practical demonstrator you can sell it
readily to your trade. Our salesman will be glad to tell
you more about this profitable line.

To insure eiTn distribution of
Imperial Floor Dressing, use
the Imperial Floor Oiler. It
Joes the work quickly, easily
and most economically. 168

THE SALES TAX ISSUE.
The long drawn oul  controversy
between the Department of Inland
Revenue and the Retail Merchants'
Association over the proper definition rn' the  terra "Manufacturer"
for purposes of the Sales Tax has resulted in a very satisfactory sequel
for the Association today.   The subject has been so frequently referred,
to in these columns and the individual retailer concerned has received
so much inthe way of direct information from Association headquarters thai n is unnecessary to recapitulate the details of the story here and
now.    Suffice  it   to say that  out  of
three tesl cases brought by the Government at the request <>l' the Association, two have been won by the Retail Merchants' Association, the last
of which was an appeal taken by the
Association  to the Supreme Court.
being dismissed by that tribunal for
the purely technical reason that less
than $500.GQ was involved in the suit.
The Association immediately offered
to bring another ease in whieh more
than the minimum amount required
by law was involved, but after consideration of all the issues at stake
the Government cancelled all arrears
of Sales Tax as applied to retailers
(classed by the Inland Revenue De-
partmnet as "Manufacturers") from
Mav 1920 to March 31st, 1922, a decision which has been welcomed by
thousands   of   retailers throughout
( anada over whom Court proceedings for the recovery for these taxes
have been pending for two years.
11 is important to note, however.
that the issue as to what properly
constitutes a manufacturer for pun-
poses of Sales Tax remains unsettled
and until it is decided the Inland
Revenue Department will continue
in apply its rulings to retailors as
from April Is:, 1922. Asa matter of
fact they have sent out circular let-
ins ti> confectioners, florists, furriers
and others calling theii attention to
their liability under the Sales Tax
i emulations,
The Association i.s now directing
,ts efforts towards having the Act so
amended as tO prevent any possible
repetition of the confusion that has
characterized this issue for two
years, and there is every reason to
believe thai they will succeed in this
enterprise, Meanwhile it is most unfortunate that the IC M. A. should
he constantly appearing in the public
press in the role of the organized tax
dodger, which impression is
conveyed, owing to the fact that
we have continually to defend our
members from unfair discrimination
in taxati m matters.  Th.* fault, how- 67*2

ever, does nol lie wiru m
tion, but with the obstinate menial
attitude thai has too often characterized Governmenl officials who suffer
from the delusion thai ihey are the
people's dictators instead ol its s*"
vauts.   It is a matter of record thai
again and again the Asso iation has
offered its services and advice to v ar-
ions   Government   I lepartments   s i
that  regulations designed to an eel
retailing may be so framed as to be    ,,,
practical and incidental!)  inexpen

have been received with polite indifference.

One of the greatest curses in nre
insurance  today   is  the   method   ol
handling the business,  The fault lies
both with the agenl and with the as
sured.   Both the agenl and the as
sured. in man) cases, seem to forge
that a fire insurance policy 1- a legal
document; it is a contract entered
into  by  the  insurance  company   as
the Tarty of the First Pari, and by
the assured, as the Party of the Second Part.   The insuranci  company,    ditiotu*
in this contract, agrees to deliver to
the  Tarty of the Second   Tart   full
damages in ease of loss In fire or loss
as result of a fire. This delivery, how-
ever, is not entirely unrestricted, be
cause in any contract there are eertain limitations and certain condi-    em
tions set forth that both parties musl
adhere to,
These requirements are nol called
"loop holes" in your insurance eon-
true'.    Wc  have  so otter,  hecn  ap
proaehed by the assured aud asked
why it was necessary for the com
pany to have "loop holes     in the
contract or the policy, and. invari
ably, our reply to this question h -
been "It is a safeguard both t-> ti.--
assured and to the company,      It is
a well known fact in insurance cir
cles that the premium income of an*.
company must pay its losses, its run
inug   expenses   ami   a    legitimate
amount to capital invested.    If the
losses and expenses exi I the pren
ium income, then it is necessary for

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA RETAILER
What is the best investment
the busy business corner or
the lot in the suburbs?
April
Real estate men know that every city, town, and village baa
its most valuable business locations.
Demand for the location; ready money lor mortgage if neces
sary; ready salability   combine to make these prominent plots the
safest investment.
The wide awake grocer knows that similar elements govern
the true value of branded food products.
The everyday demand by the public for POSTUM CEREAL,
INSTANT POSTUM, GRAPE NUTS and POST TOASTIES,
the fact that these four food products represent "ready money,"
and are commercially noted for their quick turnover, combine to
make each brand A LEADER IN ITS LINE.
The peculiar success of POSTUM CEREAL,  INSTANT
POSTUM, GRAPE NUTS and POST TOASTIES is not acci
dental.  "There's a Reason."
Persistent antl truthful advertising messages throughout the
year, and EVERY year since these popular
food products were offered to the public, are
as much a part of the business policy of the
Canadian Postum Cereal Company as its de
sire to ^yip, the public the "best there is"
in the brands it manufactures,
What can any grocer demand more than
this: Quality, assured and reasonable profits,
and a guaranteed turnover?

THE SHOE TRADE SITUATION
By S. Roy Weaver, M.A.
Manager, the Shoe Manufacturers'
Association of Canada
Tin' shoe trade in Canada 1ms led
most others in readjustment to a
more stable basis, alter the abnormal
conditions of the war years and the
[lei'iml immediately following. i.t
was one nt' the first \o experience
the business reaction and the last
two years have been exceedingly try.
Lng mi manufacturers, wholesalers
and retailers alike. Members of
the Shoe Manufacturers' Association
of Canada met the situation frankly
by reducing their prices to a replace*-
ni'iit basis, although iii so doing they
suffered heavy losses. For many
months alter the slump in the spring
of L920, manufacturers who were
stocked with materials purchased at
Itigh prices were obliged to sell their
products below actual cost. Considerable accumulated stocks in the
bauds of manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers bad to be absorbed,
while the public were restricting purchases to the utmost possible extent
in the hope of still lower prices. Under these conditions the manufacturers made every effort  to keep their
plants operating and to reduce manufacturing costs. Each saving effected was promptly passed on to
the trade in lower prices: In many
eases shoes were sold below replacement costs. The cusualty list
amongst the manufacturing plants
was exceptionally heavy; many firms
failed and others discontinued the
manufacturing busines. The wholesale and retail trade also experienced difficulties in consequence of the
necessity of reappraising stocks to a
replacement value basis and of curtailed buying by the public. Fortunately the worst now appears to be
over.
\o one claims that readjustments
are yet complete, but it cannot be
denied that the shoe trade now i.s on
a much safer basis than it has been
for some years. In this connection
certain facts are deserving of consideration. Carefully compiled static! ies show that during the last two
years the production of f. I iocs in
Canada has been below the normal
requirements of the Canadian market by between three and four mil- 686

is true, perhaps, thai some retailers |y, as every nueh chaiu-i
still  have stocks larger than their
business warrants and these should
not be encouraged to add to their
liabilities.   But for the retail trade t'a
as a whole, the volume of goods oi is

to buy cautiously and with close re

and requirements of each merchant,
but   the   retailers   must   anticipate
their needs and place their orders this m\ • •

What Makes Bread
Flavor?
If you take a tfood quality  oi   flour and mix it with water
salt, sugar and milk, it will only have the flavor oi wet gram.
Bake this dough. It will have the flavor oi cooked grain, not
the rich, delicious flavor oi Bread.
Now let yeast he used with this same dough, properly fermented and haked. The Bread flavor promptly appears.
Bread flavor, then, 19 due to the yeast.
A futher proof is-—Bake the yeast alone without any other
m^iisnts, the most important elements of Bread flavor
will he produced.
Are you putting all the flavor possihlc in your Bread7

Use of Flavoring.
Appearance and flavor are two im-
portanl features in producing quick
selling cake. The flavor, especially
w ln'ii butter is used, should be used
very sparingly—just enough flavor
t" make the cake taste well and be
appetizing, bul not enough for the
consumer to determine just exactly
what flavor wsrd. A combination of
lemon and mace, or a combination of
orange and vanilla is inns:, excellent.
Less flavor should be used when butter is the shortening than when compound is Used, .'is the flavor of huttt'l*
itself produces a must excellent and
appelizing cake.
\ good baking powder is one that
will retain its strength until the cake
is pm! into the oven. Always be sure
your baking powder runs uniform

No Drivers Union.
Bread drivers employed by Toronto bakeries refused to accept the invitation ni' trades union organizers
to form a trades union in affiliation
w-ith the international trades union
movement, A meeting for this purpose was annonnecd to take place
recently in the Labor Temple. Organizers were on hand to assist the
drivers in forming their organization .but they found there was no
need for their help, Bread drivers
were organized into a trade union by
the ''anadian Federation of Labor,
hit failed to continue their union
after a strike eighteen months ago.

the cake was 200 pounds. The farmhouse, 1 hicken house and barn were
all solid cake, and the trees, fencing
and sleigh were piped on greased
glass and assenihlrd when dry. Each
building was sold separately and the
