Making  the  Most  of It
YOU, us an up-to-date 'merchant, know
that it pays 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 modern and not neglecting any one
feature can you expect to make your investment profitable. The large merchants whose
stores attract hundreds and thousands of customers have huilt their success mainly Joy
takin; advantage of everything which would
lend individually to their stores and bring
them to the attention of the public.
Perhaps tlie most important feature, and the
one which until recently so many merchant!
neglected, is the lighting. There is no reason
why the lighting in yaur store should not be
considered strictly as an investment on which
a certain amount of business should 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, aud, 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. Individualizating
your light enibles you to obtain the full advertising value of it which is secured only by
making it different. The commonplace never
attracts���in lighting ar in anything else.

Hospitals nre great and necessary institutions, but they
should be the last resort for women who suffer with ills
peculiar to their sex. Many letters on file in the Pinkham
Laboratory at Lynn, Mass., prove that a great number oi
women after they have been recommended to submit to an
operation have been made well by Lydia E. Pinlcham's
Vegetable Compound. Here are three such letters. All
sick women should read them.

 _  !l Pinlcham's vegetable Compound I. was so rundown
with female t roubles that I could not do anything, and our doctor
said I would have to undergo on operation. I could hardly wall-
without, help so when I read about the Vegetable Compound and what
it hint dime for others 1 thought I would try it. 1 got a bottle of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound und a package of Lydia _.

they all told me the same story, that I never could get well wiUiout
tin operation and 1 just dreaded the thought of lhat, 1 also tried a
raiotl many other.medioines that were recommended to me and nono
of them helped me until a friend advised me to give Lydia E. *m_:-

but everyone should have the right
to do it in the way he most conveniently can.
Regarding the "Miserable Response Johnny Canuck Has Made"
we would just like to refer our correspondent to the following clipping from The Province of a recent date: " From time to time
criticism has been heard from various quarters as to the small po-
portion of native born Canadians
in the expeditionary forces, but
Colonel Tobin pointed out that
only 15 percent, of the native born
population of Canada are between
the military a*es of 18 to 45, and
these include women. This explains the disproportion so evident
in the statistics but Colonel Tobin
proudly asserts that 26 per cent,
of his Tigers are native born Canadians and this beats any other
corps raised in the Dominion with
the exception of the French-Canadian regiments.
Of the thirty-five officers, eighteen are native born Canadians,
eight English, seven Sootch and
one Welsh, and over them rules
I.ieut.-Colonel H. S. Tobin, another Canadian and a graduate of
Kingston and veteran of the South
African campaign where he served
with Strathcona's Horse "
Wc have on more than one occasion stated that Canadian Patriotism was equal, if not superior,
to that of the rest of the Empire,
and mean to stick to it. Henceforth our columns are closed to
any racial discussion whatever.
We note the steady growth of
feeling against Oriental labour, an
exotic in a white man's country,
and neither political party wishes
to be accused of supporting it any
longer. In fairness to the Orient- '
als. the change of policy should be
made without undue suddenness,
but, all the same, the change
should be made.
With persistant optimism, we
have for some time prophesied better conditions iu the lumber industry, Those conditions are now arriving, and when tonnage U less
scarce, British Columbia lumber
will have an even better and wider
market. Logs are no longer a
drug upon the market.
When less than 15 per cent, of
the native born population make
up 26 per cent, of a regiment it ill-
becotues recent stay-at-home arrivals to call Canadians slackers.

Band For The
102nd Battalion
A meeting of ratepayers was
held in the council chambers on
Monday evening to give an expression of their vievs on the matter of
furnishing a set of instruments for
the lo.nd Band. The Mayor occupied the chair anil invited Major
Rothuie to address the gathering.
He said that the War Department
did not provide bands; they were
provided by the olliccrs. The government, however, would feed and
equip 19 bandsmen, There were
no wealthy men in the Battalion,
hence they wanted Courtenny to
supply the Instruments, and they
would be engraved rs belonging to
the city nnd returned here ut the

bandsmen would go lor the regular

Tin* instruments were here, having
been bought in the States, the cost

well worth the money.

Against  Prohibition
Drink Reformers  Spoil Their Case
by Going Too Far
A resolution for total prohibition
during the war was moved at the
House of Laymen Convention of
the Archdiocese of Canterbury, held
in London the 17th inst., but de-1
feated and one in a much modified
form wns adopted. It expresses
merely the wish for strict moderation and selfdeuial in the use of
intoxicating liquors.
Athelston Riley, a writer on religious topics, opposed the resolutions. He said that drink reformers always spoilt their case by going too far. Alcohol itself, he contended, was not an evil, it was
"one of the good creations of God"
It was the excess in its use that
constituted the evil.
This is food for reflection for the
B. C. extremists.

This is llic aye of nervous troubles, of brain fuji;. <>f heraifailure, of
paralysis and bodily weakness. You can read it in the faces of the people

Tlif businessman, tho factory band, the professional man. the woman
in ilic home, all find their nervous systems giving way before tlie terrible strain of modern life and keen competition. Nervous force is consumed at a terrible rate, and the blood wliicli must make good ilhs Imss
becomes thin and watery, lacking in quality as well as quantity.
The whole secret of preserving health and curing disease in all such
cases is to supply au abundance of rich, red blood. Stimulants uray
drive Hie heart at a more rapid pace fur a lime but the breakdown will
I'liine with greater force.
The blood demands nourishment, the nerves cry for sustenance, i hey
call \'��r just such help as is supplied by Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood, tho
greal blood builder and nerve restorative.
In many, many thousands of cases nf this kind Dr. Chase's Nerve

those of the United Stales conceivably, will receive more favorable tariff treatment than Germany when the
war Is over. Again, up 10 the present moment Great Britain lias competed with Germany on a parity in
lier home colonics. Nothing Is more
certain than that after tlm war there
will lie imperial preference, und probably International preference, between
France and Great Britain and their
respective colonies,
Now, caking ibe war as a contest
between France ami Ureal Britain on
lhe one hand and Germany on the
other, what bus happened? First of
all, Germany has occupied .some S.40U
square miles of French territory.
That area hud a population of some
.,600,000 before the war. but all tlie
men were cleared out before Germany
came, by the mobilization, ll contained the busiest. Industrial plains,
the richest coal and Iron mines. Tlie
possession of both lias been of great
advantage to Germany, and France
has Buffered severely by the loss of
them. Hm, mi the other band, Germany has lost all of her colonics;
most of them have been actually conquered; only German blast Africa is
practically intact, and even hero the
llritish have occupied the coast.   All

The Banker and Farmer
Prosperity of the Bank and Farm Go
Hand in  Hand
The banker stands close to ihe
farmer, He is iu position to know
about tlie farmer and his business,
When Hie fanner goes to a bank to
borrow money the hanker learns Iiis
financial circumstances; his various
sources of income; the kind of farmer he is; llic number of children he
lias, and whether his wife works in
the Held. We would nol claim that
tlio hanker is no modest because lie
pries so deeply into tlie farmer's affairs as be doc not do ii through
personal Inquisitlvenoss, hm to get
al. the facts concerning lhe security
for tlio loan. However, il makes no
difference as to the reason why lhe
banker asks questions thai will unfold the farmer's affairs; he gets
them and what is mot'.' the fanner is
willing to confide in tho good 1 anker.
In many Instances, the banker
does not need to ask any questions,
for lie already knows the character
of the farmer, his income, and all
matters pertaining to his welfare.
Tim farmer's business is an open
book, lie cannot hide his wealth.

Hie crops are in his fields or granary, nnd stock will be found in pasture or stable, The value of Improvements can be judged, tlie Ileitis
measured, and the cattle counted, and
the Millie of all recorded. There is
no basement business in farming, If
is all done above the ground.
But there is another side 10 this
question which is complex and needs
a business judgment to sohe. It is
tho combining of forces of the farm
to produce the largest as well as the
most profitable crops. Farming is
more and more requiring a keen
business judgment, and tlie hanker
is willingly assisting Ibe farmer in
the adoption of better business
Not all bankers have seen this nor
