Making  the  Most  of It
YOU, ��as an up-to-date 'merchant, know
tint it pay�� to give a great deal of attention to your store���its fittings and arrangement. Your store represents a
big investment and only by keeping it thoroughly modem and not neglecting any one
feature can you expect to make -our investment profitable. The large merchants whose
stores attract hundreds antl thousands of customers have liuilt their success mainly "by
takiliv* advantage of everything which would
lend individually to their stores and bring
them to the attention of the public.
Perhaps the most important feature, and the
one which until recently so many merchant*
neglected, is the lighting. There is no reason
why the lighting in your store should not be
considered strictly as an investment on which
a certain amount of business shonld be returned. The way to make this investment profitable is simple when you stop to consider,
First, you must use the most efficient lighting
unit available, and, second, your light must be
different and must make your store individual.
By carefully selecting efficient lighting units
you minimize the cost, which is necessary from
an investment standpoint. Indivldualizating
your light enables you to obtain the full advertising value of it which is secured only by
making it different. The commonplace never
attracts���in lighting or in anything else,

Thousands of people, chuck full ol

and kindred ills.

known family residing at .Mount
Pleasunt. "Last month I wus so crippled up wiili sciatica and muscular
rheumatism us to be almost unablo to
do a bit of Housework. .My joints
were so stiff and the muscles so
frightfully son- thai I even cried at

No matter where the ache is, no

Parrot Sentinels on  Eiffel Tower
Birds have   been enlisted to   the
secret service of the air.
They have become useful In Europe as Bentrles to warn men of ibe
approach of the enemy before lhe
liosiile force is perceptible to the
human eye, The Frencli have found
that parrots are acutely sensitive to
the presence of aircraft, and therefore ihey have stationed a number
of these birds on ibe top of the
Eiffel Tower, in Paris, in order In
warn the sentries of the approach
of German Tattbes. Before the craft
is visible to th" human eve the birds
brislle with excitement and then begin to Boroecll. Their uouteucss is
due not to their eyesight, as one
might suppose, but to an unusual
actiteness of hearing, which enables
them thus to glye a valuable warning.

.Mr. Washburn was told thai the Impression genornll) prevailed lu this
country mat the German campaign
wus a victorious one.
"Quito the opposite, quite ihe opposite," he contended in answer. "When
Germany Ijckuii lis operations against
the Russian army the latter bad plenty of men, bul practically no supplies,
It is Into that, the Germans (ore
through Galicla, Unit at one time they
tore a hole forty miles wide through
the very centre of the Russian army,
bin ai uo time did they accomplish
the object of their campaign.
"That object was the destruction of
tlie Russian army, which, according
io the Qerman viewpoint, would compel liussia to seek a separate peace.
"What bus really happened is this:
Tlie German soldiers, according to
what 1 gathered from Ibe prisoners
taken by the Russians, were told that
Russia would seek peace if they captured Warsaw. They captured Warsaw, but they failed to capture or
destroy ihe Russian army defending
"Then ibe Germans were lold that
if they went on a few miles further,
the Russians undoubtedly would be
destroyed and peace with Russia
would be obtained. They went not a
few miles, but many miles.
"But they bad to light and light ter-
rilically all tlie way. At no time did
they destroy Ibe Russian army, though
they did destroy and enpture several
units of the army.
"Finally the Germans reached a
point wliicli is like a balance, They
could go no farther, If they did, ihey
would extend their communications
beyond tlie danger point. And they
knew that all the time they were
making it simpler for ihe Russians to
defend themselves.
"It is my firm belief that the Hus-
iinn army is far more powerful on the
defense than the offense.
"Although it suffered terribly in its
retreat, the army Inflicted tremendous
damage on tlie Germans. Had the Russians been as well prepared as tha
Germans, tlie latter never would have
advanced half as far as they did.
"But to get back to the point. The
German army was told that the capture of Warsaw, then tlie capture of
ilrest, of Riga, of Ivangorod, and of
any number of places meant peace.
The German army got those places,
but it  failed to get peace.
"Consequently there has been a
telling effect on ibe German morale.
Thus far it lias been only a seepage,
but It has been u real seepage.
"As 1 regard ibe situation today,
Germany and Russia are largely like
two prize lighters, like Johnson and
Willard at Havana, if you wish. Germany has all tile science, all of tlio
generalship, all of the weapons, everything thai Johnson hud in thai light,
inn like Johnson, Germany bus a limit io its physical endurance.
"Russia, on tlie oilier band, lias just
begun to acquire the science, weapons, anil Ibe like, but ul no time has
Russia been Without endurance.
"Johnson in tin* prize fight reached
tlio point where he knew it was useless io land another blow on Willard.
Tlio German army lias reached the
point where it feels that It is almost
useless to advance further into Rus-
Biit to deliver another blow, because
it realizes that the Russian arm will
only come back for more, that it can
take niiil assemble more punishment

This German parade of force is, on
the face of it, merely another attempi
lo cope with our submarines, but at

and even of panic.
Germany Is getting very nervous of
the Baltic blockade, says Mr. .loliu
l'\ 11. Pollen, an authority and writer
on naval affairs.
It has not "petered out" as she expected, but on the contrary it is growing in Intensity. Germany's counter
measures have been totally unsuccessful, for we have nor. as yet lost a
single submarine; above all, ihe need
of Iron ore, cotton, und foodstuffs is
being dally more, fell, unl perhaps
tho "open road to tha East" is not
producing the supply Of raw materials
that Germany anticipated!
Tlie re-opening of ihe enemy's trade
routes lo Scandinavia is becoming
more und more essential, but the waters of" tlio Baltic are swarming with
our submarines, and ibis re-opening
is as far off us is ever was.
Could Germany close the Sound effectively to our submarines and could
she then raise an Impenetrable wnli of

there might yet be some hope that
German merchantmen could cross the

Germany can never raise .siii'ii u barrier, for, in naval warfare, apart from
the unenviable credit of Initiating a
campaign of murder on the high seas,
she bus shown no Bitch ingenuity In

How Canada Aids the Allies
Over Eight Million Shells Have Already Gone Forward to Britain
The statement of business that has

outbreak of the war shows that there
nave been orders given to Canada for
22,800,000 shells, and thut over 8,000-
000 shells out o. that number have
already gone forward to Britain,
Tlie cost of all tlie component parts
required in the manufacturing of the
total order for shells, Including tne
machinery and assembling, is estimated lit $282,000,000. In addition
there have been orders from the war
onice for cartridge cases, primers,
forgings, etc., amounting to $20,000,*
OUii, making a total slightly exceeding
$300,000,000. The actual shipments of
ammunition lhat have gone forward
to Great Britain from the factories of
Canada have amounted to 2,000,000
"lixed" and 6,000,000 "unfixed" shells.
This total output of 8,000,000 shells

causing leading citizens of certain
towns to prefer to retain control of
their own funds rather than entrust
them to the Canadian National Patriotic Fund. This attitude is now prac-

will show that, while more than
ample provisions would have been
made to soldiers' families in Eastern
Canada, they would have had a hard
time in certain of the western provinces. The principle at the back of thi
national fund Is that a community
shall contribute to the extent of its
ability and draw to the extent of its
needs, In the cases of Alberta and
British Columbia, the former would
not equal the latter. In both provinces enlistment lias been heavy,

Mr. Carvell has been asking some
questions in the House at Ottawa.
He wanted to know; i. Why the
men uf the i02titl are being niobo-
li/.ed at Comox.
2. What is lite additional cost to
the country of transporting the
men to Comox.
3. How long will they be trained there.
4. What is the total precipitation
at Comox,
5. How is it divided throughout
the year.
No more central, dryer or warmer place could well have been found
for the training of the 102nd Batt.
There are large open tracts for
manouvering aud good roads for

The cost of bringing the recruits
to Comox from the inland places
was no greater than it would have
been to have taken the men from
Vancouver Island to any other
centre ou the mainland. From
now on the men will be on the spit,
practically a seaside resort. In
their off hours tlwv can enjoy fishing, boating, clam digging, etc..

We do not know Mr. Carvell's
reasons lor asking these questions

District, which he represents. The

Much has been said, too much in
f_ct, aliout what this section und
that stctiou has done, or is doing,
in the Umpire's struggle on behalf
of humanity, We do not propose
to reopen the discussion, and we
notice that the flow of recruits continues steady and grimly. Our
appeal is to those who are left at
home not to spare themselves in
works of mercy, in sell sacrifice, in
work for the benefit of the community, in the elimination of waste
and iu increasing production; less
loitering and loss of time, and 11
greater recognition of the fact that
the Empire and Dominion alike depend upon the efficiency of the individual. Iu the Old Country,
owing to lack of raw materials (or j
rather because the space taken up ,
by imports of raw materials is
needed for food) and the desire to
economize labour, people are asked
to return empty bottles to the
stores, old newspapers to be made
up again, and so on, Hers the .
urgency does not at present exist,
but the prevalence of waste is deplorable, iu food antl in material,
and in time. We have got to get
down to business right now.
We notice that, evidently au'ici-
pating the result of the plebiscite
to be taken on prohibition, the liquor interests are now sounding on
the chances of compensation. In
face of the fact that a license is
only granted for a year, and that
the sale of liquor carries big profits
the trade wants to be compensated
for the good thing it is about to
lose. Does the the government
compensate country stores because
they are not allowed to sell flavouring extracts and "painkiller" to
Indians? No, they are subject to a
penalty if they do. and If they observe the restriction, they escape
the penalty, but they are not compensated for the loss of business.
The liquor trade has existed long
enough to set aside a sinking fund
against possible closing down cf
saloons; just as every business man
provides for depreciation and writes
off the good will year by year.
That the liquor trade has been unbusinesslike is no reason for milking the exchequer of the people.
According to Mr. H. H. Stevens
member for Vancouver in the Dominion Parliament, Canada spends
annually on liquor one hundred
and three million dollars. The
breweries employed less than five
thousand hands, and if Dominion-
wide prohibition were attained,
could be turned to far greater national use by being converted into
plants for making denatured alcohol
for Industrial purposes.
When it is remembered that
every customer for liquor pays for
it in cash, while the business sections of the community are obliged
to give credit, a system which adds
to the cost of living, the above
mentioned sum diverted into business channels would enable store-
keepres to pay their way better,
and give improved service to all
their customers. At one time Vancouver alone spent four  and a half

The City Commission
and the Utility
A recent address before the Ohio
Electric Light Association puts in
a clear light the principle of mutual obligation as between the pub-)
lie commission and the utilities
which it is designed to regulate.
At the outset commissions seem to
have been intended chiefly to
maintain the interests of the public
against those ot corporations doing
a public business, and commissions
therefore were looked at somewhat
askance by those wh_ had their
money invested in railways, lighting companies and similar ener-
pri/.es. But in recent titnes the relations between the public aud
those who thus serve it have undergone a change for the better
that is one of the strongest signs of
improvement in civic affairs. These
relations seemed at one lime to be
mutually predatory, but such a
condition of affairs lias practically
censed to exist. The time has now
come when the managers of public
utilities recognize fully their obligations as well ns their opportunities and are striving to build up
tlneir respective enterpri ies on a
permanent nnd sound basis, with a
keen eye to the future and t e re- j
ali/.atiou that good service means
increased profits. Many a city
council would be agreeably surprised if it could listen to the deliberations of its tt'.ilitv managers or to
their confidential conferences with
their engineers. Instead of plotting to charge all the traffic would
bear, they would find these gentle- j
men .scheming improvements which
look to better service and to lower
prices, and would realize that they
are ready to meet the public more
than half way in working for their
mutual good .���Electrical World.

The Church Club
On Tuesday evening the subject chosen by the Patriotic Department for consideration by the club was ' 'The Viewpoint of a Neutral Country in the Great
European Struggle."
The country chosen was the United
States and the chief speaker, Mr. 'fowler, who had indeed equipped himself to
give a clear exposition of the expressed
opinion of various sections of that country.
Perhaps the most convincing authority
quoted was that contained in a pamphlet
preptred by Samuel Harden, Church
President of the Carnegie Institute, Pittsburg. These 32 pages are packed full
of just such considerations as the ordinary thoughtful inquirer demands concerning the present war.
The title, The American Verdict on
the War." A reply to the appeal to the
civilized world of 93 German professors;
and the fact that this pamphlet, translated into all the principal languages of
the world, is being circulated broadcast
in all neutral countries, among the Allies and even in Germany, makes one
feel disposed to sit up and take notice.
The synopsis of this excellent article is
impossible but tilt conclusion or verdict
can be stilted.
To remain neutral is not to remain indifferent, Dante's lowest hell is the
desert of those timid beings who insist
on neutrality in the everlnstlugly unlit
between good and evil, This Unlit is
one between the forces ol good ami evil.
Notwithstanding, the attempt of thousands of German professors to jnstity tlie
war, Germany, and Germ my alone is responsible for both tlie beginning of it
and for the horrors oi its prosecution,
A uieiicans enve earnestly striven to find
the right and condemn it. After nil
available evidence is silted the blame
does not appear to lie at lvnglamls door.
This conclusion would confirm us the
truth of the report that at least 90 per
cent of the American nation is in sympathy with the Allies, ami this Includes
ninny of the eight million Oeniiatis who
are residing in the United States, who
were strong enough   to   resist   German
