International baseball will be the
sporting attraction in the city this afternoon when the New Westminster
nine hooks up with the champions of
Seattle, the Knights of Columbus. The
affair promises to be the best attraction arranged by the city league magnates, as the visitors have cut a wide
swath in amateur circles around Seattle and Tacoma and are intent on
making a clean-up of the best aggregation of the lower mainland.
The Seattle manager apparently
realizes that he will have strong opposition at Queens park, as report
comes from the south that several of
the players who assisted Vernon and
Revelstoke this summer in the interior league, are being brought along.
Tomorrow afternoon the scene will
chance to Fraser Mills where tbe Circle F team, greatly strengthened for

Call Locals to Defeat V. A. C���
Crucial Game at Vancouver.
While the .Mann cup cannot be definitely cinched by the Royals at
Vancouver this afternoon when they
<ueet the V. A. (.'., present holders of
the trophy, the chances of the Donald
Mauc silverware coming to this city
will be considerably enhanced in
event of a victory being obtained by
the New Westminster amateurs.
Let them win today', game ut Vancouver, and the Hoyals will have to
drop their remaining fixtures while
Vancouver ia winning ils three games
yet to play, a situation that points
to  improbability   if  not impossibility.
The contest at Rob .Brown's Athletic
park promises to be one of the bent
encounters of the Season, With their
backs to the wall and facing a deficit
in the number of games won as compared with the Fraser River boys, the
V. A. C. can be expected to play a
biiiliant   game.
The (Upholders demonstrated a
come-back spirit in their second
game against Brampton, but to local
fans an upset on the part of the
Royals is far from  being expected.
Manager Turnbtili's bunch will go
into tbe fray without that "good-aa-
won" feeling. They realize that once
a lead is obtained it will mean hard
work to retain ll and there will be
no   let-up   through   every   quarter.
Vancouver will be without the
services ol Iteggie Kendall. The star
centre player is under suspension by
the amateur union and his place will be
taken by an intermediate player named   Freeman.
Coupled with Kendall's absence,
New Westminster will take the field
without Hill Patchell,'the steadv and
hiiBky defence player, who met with
an accident to one of his eyes last
week and will he ou the sidelines.
PatcheH's position will be taken by
Cooper, who, while not so heavy, will
probably make up for that deficiency
b)   his   speed.
The game will start at 2:30 o'clock.
All Star Line-up.
The Westminster team will be comprised of Wyard, J Cay, Wlndblad,
W*lDg_rtnar, NpIIhoii, Silver. Williams. Sliitim uud Huhnke. with Keeper heid  in  reserve as pinch hitter.

"I need not dwell," tlie professor
continues, "on the great difficulty of
learrtinf, to read and write In English,
as compared with Italian. Spanish or
(Ierman; on the waste of time, and
trouble this causes to children at an
auc when every hour is valuable, on
the disadvantage it lays on English
in competition with other languages
as an International medium of speech.
**I am myself particularly struck by
n'-'ltwo bad effects of our rules of spel-
thnlling. First, they spoil a child's ear.
He has heen so insistently taught i >
fix his attention, not on the sound,
but on the spelling, that he does not
know what sounds he is producing,
and cannot tell when two sounds are
the same or different.
"Secondly,  they  spoil  his  reasoning
powers and his faith in clear thought,
11' i by fixing his attention during several
!*!BI impressionable years on a pseudo-system of rules, in learning which memory counts for everything while eon
si. nut reasoning would lead Btralght
tn  disgrace  and   loss  Of   marks"
Many languages In the pas;, Professor Murray points out, nave gone
thrrugh a crisis similar to that In
_hi< i English now finds itself. Some
have had the vigor and foresight to
keep their w.'itteii si.ns abreast of
their speech; some have failed and
eventually ecome unintelligible even

little doubt," in* adds, "that, sooner

of building  operations.
Prior to the close of the last session of the commons, Mr. (.recti took
occasion to make strong representations to the minister of trade and commerce respecting the state of the industry, lie specifically suggested

To Give Warning
By this Mr. Robertson added that
he meant that the league could station their own men along the various
.-cads on Saturday and holidays so
that motorists might be warned if they
were going too fast. The warning
is given by a sign which the men
wear and which reads, "Slow down."
This has Baved many from prosecution this summer.
Regarding the decrease in prosecutions this season, Mr. Robertson attributed it to the poor condition of
the roads, which was hindering last
driving. He did not believe it was
due to carefulness of the constables
or to reluctance on the part of the
motorists to speed.

*"TTaving been agrcat sufferer from Asthma for a period of fifteen j*ears(soni e-
times having to sit up nights for weeks at a time) I began the isfe of " Fruit-a-
tives" These wonderful tablets relieved me of Indigestion, and through the
continued use of same, I am no longer distressed with that terrible disease,
Asthma, thanks to "pruit-a-tives" which are worth their weight in gold to
anyone suffering as I did. I would heartily recommend them to all sufferers
from Asthma, which I believe is caused or aggravated by Indigestion".
Asthma i. a disease of tbe Nerves. It usually attacks those of a highly
strung nervous system -those whose nerves are easily affected by any disturbance
of digestion. This is why ofi'/,. of those who suffer with Asthma, also suffer with
Indigestion, Dyspepsia or Constipation. In Mr. White's case, his Asthma was
cured at the same time that his Indigestion was cured.
Why? Because "I'ruit-a-tives" acts directly on stomach, bowels, kidneys
and skin. "Ftuit-a-tives" cleans the whole system of the poisons that are
irritating the nerves. " I'ruit-a-tives" sweetens the stomach, insures sound
digestion and healthy appetite. "I'ruit-a-tives" is a positive cure for Asthma
and Hay Fever.

There, was a time when justices
kept all the fees they received and
when there was no limit to a bridegroom's generosity in the matter of,
groom's generosity. Those were the
happy days. Now. however, there is
a standard fee, $2.5(1, and it is turned
directly over to the county, as justices
get regular salaries.
So after Justice Witt married the
out-of-U>wn couple lute last week he
was not bashful about suggesting that
a fee would be welcome. The check
was produced and accepted. It was
signed by a name identical with that
of the bridegroom on the license.

ln former years, but particularly
last year, the Toronto motorists who
traveled over the county roads at a
rate exceeding 20 miles an hour were
far too numerous, stated the chief
constable. On the other hand, the
Ontario .Motor league felt that too
many of their members were being
uuuuly prosecuted. The foundation
lor such a belief was tbat the constables were paid on a commission
basis, receiving three dollars for every
summons that they Issued for over-
speeding, and. therefore, motorists
were   lecklessly  penalized

The constabulary, however, maintained that no person was ever penalized unless he had been traveling
at a rate at least ten miles faster than
the law permitted. The Dundas and

fewer constables paid this year on
commission. Five of them, instead of
three, as was the case last year, are
paid a salary. In addition the severe
warning in the past has made motorists more cautious, maintains Mr. Phillips.
League Ready to Serve
Despite these conditions the' Motor
iLeague still feel tbat the "speeding
nuisance" could be dealt with in some
better manner. On Tuesday it was
suggested to the police commission
that some of the league's members be
sworn in as special constables to aB-
slst in obtaining prosecution of mn.
toris.S who break traffic laws. Mr.
Robertson stated that lie had been in
no way responsible for the suggestion, nor did he know of anyone connected with the league who was.
"Such a suggestion must have been
made by some private Individual," concluded Mr. Robertson, He slated,
however, that the league were in favor of having their own constables.

ronto is very slow to adopt anything
said   Mr.   Robertson,  "and   we
By D. Maxwell Merry
About two million families in Canada use every
day, at least, one domestic product or another, which
is advertised. That is to say, they wash with a certain soap, drink a certain tea, eat a certain breakfast food, take a certain medicine or go to bed on a
certain mattress, when they would have used a different soap, tea, food, medicine or mattress, if the
particular kind which, in fact, they do use, had never
been advertised. _..   ,  _______%
But not one of these two million families habit
ualiy use any one of these or of the hundreds of
other advertised articles because it was advertised.
The reason is quite different. These advertised articles are used because the users like them.
If a woman once lastes a tea that she does not
like, no amount of advertising will make her drink
it again. If a woman washes her face with a soap
that injures her complexion, advertising will never
induce her to change her opinion in regard to that
particular soap.
You can introduce 3'our goods by advertising
that it is the quality of the goods themselves that
keeps the door open to them. Thus we arrive at a
bed rock. It is the merit of the goods advertised
which sells the goods. Clever advertising will sell
good merchandise, but no advertising will sell twice
to the same person merchandise that is not, or is
not believed by that person to be, worth the money.
Here we come to a curious mistake held by people whose own practice should show them their error. I mean the common idea that advertising
will sell everything���that it is noisy advertising and
not merit that sells the goods.
As I have frequently stated in these articles, the
simple explanation of an article and the special features that are likely to appeal to the public is the
best advertising that can be used. Big words and
resounding phrases may look good to the advertiser, but they don't sell goods. The shortest words
and the shortest sentences tell the tale of any product better than the most academic story that could
ever be written.
