Proved of Great Value to Me"
There is only one explanation for the
numbers of enthusiastic letters that we
receive praising Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets, and that is that these tablets
certainly do cure any kind of stomach
Here is a typical letter from Hiss
Ivliza Armsworthy, Cauoo, N.S.: ���
"It is with pleasure I write to inform
you that your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets have proved of great value to
me. 1 tried remedy after remedy but
without any lasting pood. Having heard
of your tablets curing such cases as
mine I decided to give them a fair trial.
They proved satisfactory in my case."
The remarkable success of N��-Dru-Co
Dyspepsia Tablets is such a success as
can only come to an honest remedy,
compounded according to an exceptionally good formula, from pure ingredients, by expert chemists. If you are
troubled with your stomach just aek

Allied   System���Close   Communication
With Fleet At All   Places���Cheap
Montreal, April 2.���Details of the
proposed arrangements between the
Imperial Government aud the Canadian Marconi Company for an "all
red" wireless system to encircle the
British Empire, a scheme which eventually will embrace the whole world,
have been received by Mr. A. E. Reoch
secretary treasurer ot the Canadian
Marconi Company Limited, here.
The plan embraces high power stations at various strategic points within the empire by which messages can
be taken and forwarded, so that the
British Empire will eventually become
independent of cables. The importance of this plan is very great, aB it
would mean that in case of war with
any power the British authorities
would be able to go ahead with their
plans whether the cables were cut or
not, and could keep in close communication with the lleet anywhere between London and Hongkong. The
communication received by Mr. Reoch
states thAt the Imperial Postmaster-
Ueueral, acting on behalf of His Majesty's government and governments
of the dominions and colonies, has accepted the conditions proposed by the
Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company
for the construction of all the long
distance wireless stations required for
the imperial wireless scheme. This is
along the lines agreed to at the conference of June of last year, when
representatives of the various colonies
and    of    the    Imperial    Government
Canadian Banks' Progress.
In a little more than six years the
total assets of the Canadian banns
have doubled, while the number of
banks making returns under the Ban!:
Act to the Department of Finance has
dropped from 34 to 21), their business
being conducted by 3000 branches between the Atlantic and the Pacific.
During the same period there have
been six failures���confined to the
smallest type of bank���while seven
have amalgamated with the largest
institutions. On the other hand, eight
new banks have been founded, and ot
these the most recent ani also the
largest ls the Banque Internationale
du Canada, iMontreal, which represents largely French capital. The outstanding feature has been the great Increase in size of tlie Individual banks,
a factor that must undoubtedly lessen any tendency towards bank failures in the future. The small bank
in Canada has undoubtedly had its
day. and the character of Canadian development, especially on the industrial
and manufacturing side, all points to
the necessity of large financial institutions. The major part of the increases effected by the banks as a
whole have resulted from the steady
development of their branch systems,
