Figures which arc now being prepared will prove that Canada '• tire Urns in [»?> was |*>
palling.
It does not seem to be clearly recognised by business men that all \tm (rmo tire ih TOTAI
and IRREVOCABLE.
The fact that an indemnity may be collected by lhe victim of ihe tire, dimply mfftaa
that thc rest of the community pays a tax for that purpose.
As a young country struggling to achieve economic independents, we eanw»t afiWd
to furl her handicap ourselves.
MUTUAL INSURANCE is nothing lem than an attempt «o reduce lire \m» through
careful selection, rigid inspection, and intelligent co-operation, through mli-ghtrnrtl jwlf.it).
tcrest—It necessarily follows that because the policyholder share* in the -livi-tnt-l e«rt»eii
by his Association, he is going to watch his own risk carefully firsl, and take an intelligent interest in community tire prevention.
WHY NOT INVESTIGATE THE MUTUAL PLAN?

These are the days when the housewife finds it necessary to
study "economy" from every angle, and is looking for "economy-

Oleomargarine. As a spread for bread, Oleomargarine is pure,

merchants are required to sell it to
all of their customers alike everywhere, and they are satisfied to do
so, having a fair margin of reward
for their labor, this manufacturer is
immediately Summoned before the
Registrar appointed under the Act,
and he is charged with having fixed
a common resale price on his commodity, not because it is wrong, but
he-ause the law says that he shall
001   do  so,   and   because   the  "trade
pirates" and the "illegitimate price-
cutting gamblers" want legislation
of this character to enable them to
carry on their practices so that they
can continue to de icive the public.
If ins dangerous clause is not re-
mo\ e 1 the trade of < 'anada will receive a blow that will shake it to its
very foundation, and from which it
will  not   recover for some years.
The experience of legitimate manufacturers am! retail merchants for
many years has I rj thai a fair selling priee fixed upon trade-marked
articles, snd for which the public
know the price they are expected to
pay, is the proper method for all concerned. If this Bill is passed in its
I resenl form, no newspaper or magazine in Canada can have a resale
price fixed mi it. It will be, if not
illegal, inconsistent for the government to fix the resale price on postage stamps, and thousands upon
thousands of articles that now hear
a retail selling price will come undo the han of this cxtraordinaary
attempl to change an old and well
tried commercial safeguard that has
proved to be of real value to the
purchasing public. This resale price
clause in the Act musl be removed,
and every effort must be put forth to
call puhlie attention to it
Its   Success   Depends   upon   its
Administration.
The s-econd part of tin* Bill provides for the administration of the
Act, under a Minister of the Crown,
il is upon this appointment that the
entire operation and usefulness of
the Act will depend. If it is placed
under the Department of Trade and
Commerce, with the present Minister, as a business man, at the head
of it. and if several amendments are
made to the present Bill, it may answer a useful purpose, but otherwise
we can see nothing in it luit a continual source of trouble and annoyance, and we may expect a further
repetition of the performances carried on by the unfortunate conductors of the late Board of Commerce,
none of whom had had any practical
experience in the greal commercial
irol lems of Canada.

b
vision existing in the acl tor 11 ereu

that which stipulates thai a creditor
may obtain judgmenl againsl the

At the coming session ol  Ihe I lo

round demand. Extensive advertising and sampling

equately fills this existing demand. Not
only is tlie bran contained in this new
product in sufficient quantity to provide
the proper laxative properties but retained also are other valuable parts of the
wheat berry. These contain phosphates
and mineral salts which greatly enhance
the food value of the bran, and add delicious llavor and palatability.
it is no surprise to the trade that a
company which leads its field in the per-
t eel ion of cereal foods should be the
first also to perfect a bran food and eliminate the harshness so common and so
well known of ordinary bran. Post's
Bran Flakes are crisp and thin and by
reason of their tastiness and palatability
will be used more regularly and in larger
quantities by the thousands of people
who suffer from constipation and by the
thousands who are aware of its existence
if even In a slight degrei.
Comprehensive plans have already
been made for extensive advertising. A
tremendous sampling proposition by
which every family will receive a free
sample of the product wilt begin at once.
The newspaper campaign will be conducted on a scale large enough to market
Post's Bran Flakes in every nook and
corner   of   the   Dominion.    The  slogan
Now you'll like Bran" carried in each
advertisement will become as well-known
and meaningful aa "There's a Reason."
The Canadian Postum Cereal Company
have deservedly won tlie goodwill of the
whole Canadian trade and are to be congratulated for this recent  triumph.

over-increasing demand ol yarn users an advance may be looked for,
The large demand for knitted
goods prevalent at the present time.
especially for outerwear lias caused
wool yarn prices to show a decided
stiffening.
The principal reason for wool prices remaining high during and  for
two years after the war. was because
the greater portion of the world's
supply was controlled by the Brit     1;' Sa,<  '**v ''•'
j*J-    and    American    governments.      WHEREAS <*
inese two governments apportioned    chase -. ' \  ■
the wool in limited quantities, suffic-    quired to ; .
ien1  to supply the demand of the
American, British and some of the
continental   manufacturers,   taking
every precaution not to unduly de
press the market, and therebyreal
lsed better prices than would'otherwise have been obtained,
Prices commenced to break when
the genera] deflation occurred in the
spring of 1920, the low point being
reaclled in May. 1921. Prices remain-    SIT?

HARDWARE
1923 Outlook Promising
Willi the advenl of finer weather
Vancouver hardware distributors are
reporting a good volume of business.
Outside construction is commencing
in earnest and the building pro
gramme outlined for 1923 bids fair
to outdistance last year s totals,
when residential construction figures
were highly satisfactory.
Fair deliveries for steel am' galvanized goods are reported, but there
is some probability of delaj in de
livery hy the U. S. Steel and otl • i
manufacturing corporations in the
States until unfilled orders are
caught up with. There i> a reported
shortage in this class of goods from
the cast, ami American mills arc
promising no delivery of galvanized
and black goods before nexl August.
Prices in Vancouver have advanced
25c a hundred pounds,
Poultry netting, fence wire, garden tools ami Mich seasonable items
show stronger movement, reflecting
a good demand from the retailer.
(lannery operators have been bu) •
ing supplies ami repair parts for up
coast plants, ami crews arc moving
northwards at this writing. With
the re-opening of logging camps,
ami commencement of operations by
new concerns logging ami machine
tools, chains, axes. saws, spikes, &c,
arc registering a good demand Mining activity in the province in to receive a marked impetus this season
with much foreign capital being invested in development woi k in mining districts. The horn.' building
exhibition promoted again tin-* \ear
hy the I',. c. Manufacturers' Asso
eiation which ran for two weeka,
closing April 7th. gave man,\ local
concerns the opportunity of person
ally demonstrating their wares to
flu* public, and has added ;i valau
able impetus to the liiiihluiLr indus
try. The system cf handling the
fruil grown in this province through
co-operative marketing will greatly influence the unsatisfactory col
lections,  reported  in  thr past   from
fruit centres where money has I n
tied up for indefinite periods, and re
turns  have   not   hecn  adequate   for

I   tin-  derivation   "I   the
word :" l*e useii
By "nomenclature' we mean the
words, terms or language used in
any art of science. Miss Rogers says:
" Nomenclature is an old ari To
carry ii oul successfully one should
have a broad education and knowledge of the history and derivation
ol words. I; is also necessary to
have an ear for harmony and a peculiar si'iisr of 'eternal fitness.'
Even then il requires much thoughl
and stink to name anything successfully. Indeed, a perfect name
or slogan mighl be called an inspiration. "
Herein lies the secret oi naming
something you wish to offer to the
public. It is not right to say offhand that one will call the thing In*
has tn offer by the name of a flower,
a horse or something thai is popular in the public eye al the time
with any thought thai thai alone will
make it a seller.
Value of Well-known Names
' * A name is an article's introdue-
iion and until the product is known
tin- name musl sell it." says Miss
Rogers. "It must suggesl the'producl to the public and have a human
appeal.
"There arc names," she continues,
"which stick in one's memory like
a burr and make one hungry for the
product. A successful business
knows that the names of its best sellers are invaluable, indeed, its greatest assets.
Righl here it is well to remark
lhal the value of a name firs: depends upon its proper selection and
then exploiting it until its value is
almosl priceless. As an illustration of 'In** ii is well to point out that
the " Wall Street Journal," in giving its estimate of the value of well
known trade-mark states that the
name " Uneeda Biscuit is worth
$13,000,000; Royal Baking Powder,
$8,000,000; Mennen's $10,000,000;
Spearmint, $7,000,000; Kodak, $5,-
000,000; Coco-Cola, ^5.000,000;
Quaker Oats, $10,000,000, and Gor-
hani. $2,000,000. The total for these
eight Irade marks is $60,000,000, or
-siummm pei- letter.
in the baking field we have such
names as " Bond Bread,    " Butter
nui   Bread," "Buttererusl   Bread,
,•! •., etc., all of which suggesl some
thing to the buyer, the firsl thai the
''bond" of the company stands behind their loaf and Hie other a tasty
and   delicious   recommendation   for

Misnomers.
Along this line it  i** well to state
thai   many   mistakes  are   made  in
naming products ol fered to the public and such mistakes are eostl,\   for
at tunes they involve great financial
layout   and  amount   to  nothing  be
cause ihey have not  been given the
proper thoughl before the name had
been selected*
The average man is nol fitted for
the picking of the names he uses and
often twists words or imitates in a
manner the names of some s\ ell ex
ploited product, which does him absolutely no good.    .Many take firm
names   and   evolve   such   things  as        .1.  K   Doerl

In big profita md new trade.
In To-day—
Out To-morrow
McCormick's products do not
come to your store to "camp
on the shelves." This is the
brand that spells "turnover"
with a big T. People demand
McCornvck's because they are
widely advertised and because
quality merits appreciation.
Let McCormick's stir up your
biscuit sales.
