Press   Advertising   Sold
Victory   Bonds
BEFORE the war, bond buyers were "marked men." In number they
were 40,000 in March, 1917—this is shown by the number of purchasers of the Government War Loan of that date. But in the autumn of
the same year, their number increased twenty times-—to 820,000! This
was the number purchasing the Victory Loan. 1917. Last month--
November, 1918--over 1,000,000 persons purchased the Victory Loan 1918!
These wonderful results were accomplished by Press Advertising.
Now quite
Before the war one-half of ori'i per cent, of our people bought bonds,
twelve and one half per cent, of our people are bond buyers!
Before the stupendous amount of
$076,000,000 worth of bonds could be
sold to our Canadian people ln three
weeks a most thorough an exhaustive
campaign of education was necessary,
and this campaign was carried
through by advertising ln the public
press. The power of the printed word
never had a more convincing demonstration.
By means of tlie printed word,
through the medium of advertisements
In the press of our country, the Canadian people were made to know what
bonds are, the nature of their security, their attractiveness as an Investment, and why the Government had
to sell bonds.
Every point and feature of Victory
Bonds was illustrated and described
before and   during   tbe   capaign—In
advertisements. No argument was
overlooked. No selling point was
overlooked.
The result Is that Canadians today
arc a nation of bondholders.
They know what a convenient, safe
and profitable form of Investment
bonds are . Instead of one man in
two hundred owning bonds, now one
Canadian in eight—men, women and
children—owns a Government Security.
This complete transformation in the
national mind and habits was brought
about by advertising In the press of
the nation. Press advertising has justified itself as the surest and speediest
method by which a man's reason can
be influenced and directed.
The Minister of Finance acknowledges
this.   His own words are:
"The wonderful success of thc Loan was due In large measure
to their (the press of Canada) splendid and untiring efforts
during the whole of the campaign."
Mr. E. R. Wood, Chairman of the Dominion Executive Committee having oversight of the campaign to raise Victory Loan 1918, said "... The press publicity
campaign ... .will rank us one of the most remarkable and efficient publicity
ciiiupalgns ever undertaken In any country," aud Mr. J. H. Gundy, Vfce-
Chalran ot the same committee said: "1 have been selling bonds for a long
time, but I never found It so easy to sell them as at this time. ..The reason ls
the splendid work the press has done. I take 00 my hat to the press of Canada."
The success of Victory Loan, 1918,and the knowledge which Canadians now possess of bonds are a stright challenge to the man who. doubts the power of the printed word, in the form of advertisements, to sell goods—and this applies not to bonds
alone, but to the goods YOU are interested in selling.

THE STORY
Elaine Esmond, tho novelist, is
dictating her new story to her stenographer.
Vera .Malt land, daughter of a "Steel
King." gives u dinner at her home.

of her father. Barreutos, another
gtiost, ls attentive to Grace Dcnby.
arousing the jealousy of her husband,
Allen Danby. Blair remains after the
others have gone. He asks Vera to
be his wife and she consents. The
next morning, she Informs her father
of her engagement, and he Is displeased, as he knows Blair to be an
Idler. He gives Vera a check for ten
thousand dollars for a wedding gift,
saying It wlll support them until
Blair has a chance to show his worth.
After their marriage, Blair reads
law, but no clients come his way.
Danby has become suspicious of his
wife and Barreutos. One night, Grace
Dimby eoines to Vera, greatly agitated, saying that her husband has returned unexpectedly, and finding Barreutos with her, has "shot him dead.
She says Danby has no money with
which to flght for liberty. Vera promises that Blair will defend him.
She aids Blair In planning his line
of defense. His ambition is aroused
when sbe tells blm that an acqultal
based on the unwritten law will make
him famous. He secures the acqultal.
Now Blair has many clients, and his
head Is turned by success. The gossip about her husband's attentions to
another woman, Florence Grant,
reaches Vera's ears and she asks him
if It is true. She knows from his
manner that It Is and Blair leaves
home In a rage. Vera goes to a seaside resort to seek diversion from
Who Don't Understand her troubles, leaving Blair a note
saying that she still loves him. By
an odd coincidence her husband and
Florence go to the smile hotel. Sho
confronts them, and tells Florence,
at the point of n revolver, to go nt
once. In the ensuing quarrel between Blair mid Vera, Blair tells her

CHRISTMAS GIFTS IN FORM OK
WAR SAVINGS STAMPS
What to give a friend for Christmas
is a question that Is giving many
people a great deal of thought. Opinions on this subject have changed considerably, for thc war has made Imperative the quality of usefulness In
gifts. Today the effort Is to get a present that combines good will and genuine value.
War Savings Slumps do this to an
unusual extent Not 'only arc they
always worth thc price paid for them,
but a great deal more, Interest being
paid on them at the rate of over i%
per cent compounded half-yearly.
.Most other gifts decrease In value as
time goes on.
A War Savings Stamp costs $1.00,
which Is pretty well within the reuch
of all. Still, If there are any who
want to start a friend in tho way of
profitable saving, but feel that they
cannot afford this amount, they may
i hey may buy Thrift Stamps and give
them. These cost 25 cents each, and
when sixteen of them have been
bought they may be exchanged for
a War Savings Stamp.
War Savings Stamps are a good Investment, drawing 4% per cent com-

(Author Unknown.)
There's a man In the world who is never turned down
Wherever he chances to stay;
He gets the glad hand in tlie populous town
Or out where the farmers make hay.
He's greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand,
And deep in the aisles of the woods;
Wherever he goes there's a welcoming hand-
He's the man who delivers the goods.
The failures of life sit around and complain
The gods haven't treated them white;
They've lost their umbrellas whenever there's rain,
And they haven't, their lanterns at night.
Men tire of failures who fill with their sighs
Thc air of their own neighborhoods;
There's a man who is greeted with love-lighted eyes-
He':; the man who delivers the goods,
One fellow la lazy and watches the clodk
Ami waits for tlie whistle to blow;
And one iias a hammer with which he will knock,
And one tells a story of woe;
And one if requested to travel a mile
Will measure the feet and the rods
But one does his stunt with a whistle and smile—
He's the man who delivers the goods.
One man is afraid that he'll labor too hard,
The world isn't yearning for such;
And one man is ever alert—on his guard—
Lest he put in a minute too much.
One has a grouch nr a temper that's had,
And one i.i a croaturo of moods;
i'.o it's time for the joyous and rollicking lad—
Km' the man who delivers the goods.
