— That's
why it

much
It is from an actual photograph of Anna Case of the
Metropolitan Opera singing in direct comparison
with her own voice on the New Edison.
"Hut what's remarkable about this?" you ask.
The amazing fact is that no human ear can
distinguish the artist from the instrument; so perfect
is the Re-Creation. This is what we call the "tone
est". And it proves the truth of the Edison
Company's claims about
We NEW" EDISON

•roves that the instrument does re-create, not
ly imitate.    Hundreds of these tone tests have
(inducted.   More than 2,000,000 people have
Jed them.  And not one could say when it was
tist he heard and when the instrument.   With
ights lowered  to hide the singer's  lips the
...ence was completely baffled.
Visit our store for a demonstration of the marvelous New
Edison or have one sent to your home. No obligation, of course.

THE TELEPHONE
INFORMATION GIRL
IS HUMAN.
We had a complaint the other day that "Telephone
Information" could not answer a question regarding
a person's phone number, she having replied that there
was no listing under the name mentioned. It was
finally ascertained from the enquirer that the person
wanted lived in a furnished house and the telephone
was listed under the owner's name, not under the name
of the tenant. Consequently, Information could not
oblige as she had no record showing who occupied the
house.
If a person has a telephone, you will find that
Information can always give you the number. Her
aim is to help you.

GRIP, INFLUENZA
Hamlin's Wizard Oil a Reliable,
Antiseptic Preventive
Make The Returning Soldier Welcome
I "'HIS is an important hour for Canada. The
■*■ nation is entering on a new era. It is passing
from war to peace. Let us start this new era right.
There are thousands of soldiers returning from overseas. The Government is doing all in its power to
get these men back to civil life.
It is giving a War Service Gratuity—more than
any other nation—to keep the poldier going till he
gets a job.
It gives him a pension—where his usefulness is
impaired by his service.
It teaches a man a new trade when his service
unfits him for his former trade.
It gives him free medical treatment when illness recurs, and supplies free artificial limbs and
surgical appliances.
It is bringing back to Canada at the public
expense the soldiers' dependents now overseas.
During influenza epidemics spray
the nose and throat several times a
day with one part Wizard Oil and
two parts water, using an atomizer.
If you haven't an atomizer, gargle
the throat and snuff the mixture up
the nose. This treatment sets up an
antiseptic wall of defense against
"Flu" germs.
Chest colds and sore throat lead
to grip. Stop them at once with
Wizard Oil before they can develop
into dangerous influenza.
Get it from druggists for 30c. If
not satisfied, return the bottle and
get your money back.
Ever constipated or have sick headache? Just try Wizard Liver Whips,
pleasant little pink pills, 30c at druggists.   Guaranteed.
"HANDS UP!"
But the Government, however willing, cannot provide
the personal touch needed in
this work of repatriation.
That must be given by the
people themselves.
The men who went from
these parts to fight in Flanders deserve a real welcome
home —the best we can give.
In most towns committees
of citizens have already been
organii ed to meet the soldiers
and their dependents at the
station, to provide hot meals,
supply automobiles, afford
temporary accommodation
when necessary.
In addition, many other
towns are organizing social
gatherings to give public welcome to returned men after
they have been home a
few   days.
After he has rested,' the
soldier must be provided with
an opportunity for employment. In towns of 10,000
population, Public Employment OfTkcs have been established to help soldiers, as well
as war-workers, secure good
jobs quickly.- Where these
exist, citizens should co-operate. Where they do not exist,
the citizens themselves should
help put the soldier in touch
with employment.
The fighting job is done. It
has cost many a heart-burning. But it has been well
done. The least we can do
is to show our appreciation
in no uncertain manner.
Don't let the welcome die
away with the cheers.

THE   BIG   STORE
NEW SILKS
Alter carefully considering the question of Dress from the customer's
viewpoint, we believe we have arrived at a decision which will be most
advantageous to them,
The great difficulty this year in securing goods at reasonable prices
is not lessened, although war is over; especially is this true with both
Woollen (ioods ami Cotton Goods.
Pure Woolen Goods are nearly prohibitive in price and, therefore,
will not appeal to the majority of people. Cotton fabrics show no sign
of decline, rather tho reverse, but such fabrics, while within the reach
of all. do not lend themselves to the folks who want something dressy
and smart.
For above reasons, we have bought the largest stock of Silk Goods
ever introduced to our store and which we feel sure will appeal to the
good taste of the Ladies of Cumberland and district.
Silks are new, smart and give that chic appearance which most
ladies desire in a smart dress. Our new silks to hand, we feel sure, will
meet the approval of those desiring something dressy at a reasonable price.
SOME   OF   OUR   NEW   SILK   GOODS:
Colored Crepe-de-Chene in most of the shades wanted, and   d*rt HK
heavy quality which will give satisfaction.  PRICE per yd. *P*™' * i O
Georgette Crepes in black, white and all the desirable colors,
in a weight which will wear well.  PRICE, per yd	
$2.95
Eolienne. This is a material which will prove especially attractive and
which gives good results in making smart dresses, waists (j*f\ (? A
or skirts. Very wide.   PRICE per yd  *PeU,D\)
Taffetas are very popular this season and appeal to most ladies carried
in three good qualities
PRICE, per yd	
$2.50, $2.75 and $2.90
Messaline, in black only, a beautiful rich quality, will give you
good wear.   PRICE per yd ,	
$2.75
Striped Habutai. Eleven different stripes of a rich heavy quality, which
we guarantee to give satisfaction, Some very smart flJO rtf?

you will be in a position to know exactly what you desire, and where
to get it.
