I olininx has beeu   reached   In the ap-
I polntmenl of Mr. Wade to this posl-
j tlon.     N'o one will   ever   forget the
I abuse which tlie   Sun   lavished upon
the laic Sir Richard   McBryde when
holding thin   same   position, and   at
thai  time Mr.  Wade controlled The
Sun.   At   that   time,   the time of the

criminal waste of money to maintain
su- li amfflre.     Now   It 'fl   all right

Wade.     There  Is  a limit   to   most

Don't Overlook the Possibilities
of the Telephone
Did you ever notice how some people   shout into the Tdephone ?
They think becauee the party they are txalking to it some distance
away, that the tone of voice must be loud.   They forget that a con-
vesatlonal tone is all that It needed
It Is the tame with the long distance-telephone. Some people have
the idea that because the party wanted it distant, it it not possible
to talk to them���the voice cannot carry that far. The voice may
not carry that far, but it iseasily carried by the wire any distance,
owing to modern invention. No matter how far your friend It away
you can converse by telephone without difficulty.   Try it tome time.

Now Ixindon, Conn., has adopted a
unique but effective means of curbing
profiteering In house rents. A board
has been formed consisting of public
spirited citizens of standing, Including lawyers of standing, real estate
men, manufacturers and others who
n*et daily In sub committeesof three
to hear complaints of tenants regarding extortionate rents, If a tenant
makes, out a case the sub-committee
request's i'ho landlord to attend to give
his side of the cafe. If he refuses, or
If a plain case of rent profiteering Is
made out against him, all the facta
aer published and public opinion Is allowed to do Its work. This plan has
proved most effective,

Tlie Goderich Board of Trade
is making an extra effort to "pui
Goderich on the may." and this is
the way the signal "lal's up" to
tlie citizens in a reeelU issiu . It's
good advice too. "Whn nits one
comes to town grasp him liy tiie
hand and tell Iiini whnt biiglil
prospects ihe town has, Don'l
tanu around like �� lot ol dressed
up dummies before a clothing store
nnd wear long faces with gloomy
look-, and See only the dark side nl
lite Above all, don't go whining
around and make .1 shadow 011 lh
bluest sky. If yotl really huvn'l
the heart to speak .1 cheery word
or land your influence on behalf of
your town, for mercy sake hide
yourself when some strangers come
to visit us," If you liavn.t a
bright cheerful word for the place,
for lit- ven's sake pack up your old
kit bag and get out, You'll feel
better and the town will be a darn
sight better ofl without von.

they grouch about that, they complain about everything under the
sun.

for such people or he would invfte
them to heaven.
