The Judgment.
Following is liis lordship's judgment in full:
The license herein was granted under Sub-Sec. 3 of Sec. 318 of the
-Municipal Act, Cap. 170 R. S. 1911.
There is no other authority for grant*
Inig a bottle license.
Si c. .'Mil provides that no license
shall be granted under that subsection until the provisions there prescribed shall be, complied with -and
no real attempt has been made to
comply with the same in fact there
is a flagrant non-compliance ll i.s
unnecessary to enumerate all that
has not been done, but is quite sufficient to stale that whereas this sec
tlon requires that petitions for the
council lie signed by at leaBt two-
thirds of the lot owners and also by
at least two-thirds of the wIvcb (If
iiivi of such loi owners. It appears
from the evidence before me tha*
net a single one of such lot owners
signed the petition.

Burbank's 5HA5TA DAISY
If Luther Burbank's genius began and ended with the origination of the Shasta
Daisy, his fame as a horticulturist would have been permanent. The Shasta
Daisy is now the most popular white flower grown in the world.
Several improved strains have been created by Uurbank since his organization of this unusual flower.
All are beautiful.
Shasta Daisy Heeds are only one of tlle many different varieties of Luther Burbank's original seeds
that you can purchase in our Store���the only store in New Weatmlnater that carries them. Following out
our progressive policies of merchandising, we secured the* exclusive representation of The Luther liur
bank Company, the sole distributor of original Uurbank  productions, which  we offer you at first hand.
The cost of Burbank Seeds is moderate. Kor $1.25 you can get
twelve varieties Luther Burbank's own selection. Tills wlll give
you a most unusual garden for 11*14. With every $1.20 purchase, we
will give* free a copy of "The Culture of Flowers, Fruits and Vegetables," written  by  Luther  Uurbank himself.

Alter all the attempts made by the
amateur officials in this neck of the
woods to segregate the sinion pures
from the professional element, the
election of the two head figures with
the Vancouver Athletics professional
lacrosse club, as president and vice-
president of the V.A.C. Mann cup team
appears to be piling on the agony too
strong. Whether the local branch of
the B. C. A. A. V. will take action or
not, it does seeim rather peculiar to
read of the election of Billy Clark as
president and Milton Oppenhelmer as
vice-president of the amateur champions of the world, while these two
are so closely connected with the professional club as to take charge of
the finances and arrange all details in
connection with the B. C L. A. with
the New Westminster lacrosse club.

YOU'VE met at least one of (hose few good old
souls, who arc constantly getting the worst of it
when shopping, who don't believe in advertising.
A hundred disappointing and instructive experiences
have failed to teach him their plain lesson.
When he bought his first watch he was beguiled into
buying one without a known name or a trustworthy
guarantee. That watch ���a poor timekeeper ���cost
bim dearly by reason of missed appointments and
missed trains, and for frequent repairs. Yet he paid
the price of a good watch.
It is the same story with regard to his underwear,
his shoes, and his fountain pen.
This good old soul's case is not unique. Many of us, if
thc truth be confessed, resemble him; we allow ourselves to be sold merchandise with an unknown brand
or trade mark instead of buying merchandise which ia
well known to us through the medium of advertising.
In slang language, we get "stung" pretty often.
In most of these cases we have ourselves to blame, for
"the road to the right" thing to buy has been made
plain by advertising.
There is no good reason for passing by the known
thing, soundly guaranteed, to buy a dubious article,
which, quality for quality, cannot be cheaper than the
known, branded article.
"// is better
to be sure
than sorry.
If you are doing a local business talk over your advertising problems with the Advertising Department ol this newspaper.
If you are doing a provincial or national business it would be well
for you to have the counsel and Resistance of a duieel advertising

to forget his real (pialitie's and attribute t.i bim heroic characteristics. It
it, well to be reminded by B. Alcxan-
der Powell, a well known author, and
tie latest correspondent to interview
the dhleftain, that Villa is what he
