Few  merchants realize this vital point in their businesses.   Some advertise in  the local press  because their neighbors  do,'  others   because   they   believe  that; the town, needs  a   paper and  as live members of the community,  :.t   is   up   to  them   to   support   it.  Both of  these reasons for  advertising,   while   creditable  from "the  standpoint of public spirit, are erroneous.   The .reason why the majority of  advertisers  do notmake  a   success of their advertising it>  the fact that th'ey do not realize  that the newspaper" is actually   a  salesman.   When a customer comes, in to your store, do you remark  that you sell hardware or that you  sell shoes.   If you took this line of  salesmanship you would in all probability be  obliged  to  state  that"  in [place of selling shoes, you kept  them.   No,   when  'your   customer  comes   in   you  tell   her   that  you  have the* particular article she is  looking  for,  you   name  the  price  and you tell her in   a  few, words  the leading qualities of the article  she   demands.   A   good   salesman  goes    a    little   further, and   when  his customer has made the purchas  es 'which brought her to the store,  he suggests some particular article  of his stock which he believes would  be  acceptable.   This   is   salesman -  ship.   Anybody can   sell   a   pound  of  sugar to a child who has .been  sent to the store to purchase just  that quantity, but to sell .your cus-  an entirely different matter.

You  *vill soon be astonished to find that  i'or  every   dollar  invested  in   the  weekly salesman, you- will receive  a   bigger  return   than   from   the  bestt salesman in your store.   The  weekly salesman must however do  its  part  and  by its  individuality  and   fund   of   interesting   reading  matter, havethe power of making  itself   a, friend of the subscribers  who    constitute    the    customers.  Your y&alesman  must   be decently  dressed and sociable, so your week  ly'salesman must have the power  of attracting its readers.  TELL THE EDITOR?

'AE  ter Labor^Day no doubt he will be  able to tell the readers of the Star  what it is.   He is also advising the  i Star readers *to go and find out.

FRIDAY,     AUG. 23    1912  (  Elsewhere we publish the reasons why there should, be co-operation to make the fair next Octob-  e- at New Westminster a success  The Fraser Valley has made the  Fall Fair at New Westminister,' and  the people there have reason to  thank the farmers for their support in the past. The future will  of course take care of itself.  Ever since the editor came to the  province  some twenty years ago,  1    the Fall Fair at New Westminster  -has been the one attraction of tnc  year and has always, been   a go >d,  advertisement to the province, and  the people who make it their ous-  iness  ito   show   there.   'So   far   ;is  memory serves the Fair has always  been  a  success,-unless it rained- ������  and sometimes it has rained,   uot  what   you   would   notice���������and     it  takes very little rain to be noticed  by the people whq come from tne  up-country districts, where it ' -'  dom rains, and then it snows.   But  notwithstanding this  set back ih.  New Westminster Fair 'has alwayo  been an eye-opener cq the visiiois  from the outside of the province  who attend.  Of  course   every  person  can nut  win  prizes,   and   sometimes   those  who do exhibit.just come out even,  but then there is the glory of haying people from  all parts  of the  province  look   at,  praise  and   ad-  mire what Mr. So-a,n.d-So believes  to be worth showing1 and, attempt  ing to  compete for; a prize.' Tin*  man who exhibits fulfills one of ihe-  great  duties   as   a   citizen^ of his-  country���������foe is  a  booster.  So great has been the attraction  of the Fall Fair that the up-to-dato  and progressive city of Vancouvet  is spending thousands of dollais to  have one just as good as New.  Westminster. They may some day  succeed, but the glory of having  the first and best for many years  will always remain with the' Royal  City.  There are several farmers near  Abbotsford who have always done  their bes: for the Fair at New Wet>t  minster and have signified thoir  intention, of doing the same again  this year. But there should r������  more than ever as'it- will help to  boost the district.  same time insinuates itself into the  good  graces  of. strangers  by  the  picnic  method.   The picnic   is   the  modern 'survival of the old  fashioned camp meeting, with the difference that it lasts but- a day. In  other, respects the genius of the institutions is the same, for In both  people are incited to combine pleas  ure with the contemplation of more  serious affairs.   Tomorrow the Con  servative organizations of Victoria  and the adjacent: country will hold  their   annual   outing,   and   everybody, .his wife arid children, will be  there.   Tt  is   a,, laudable  emprise,  and should be semi-annual, for it is  one of the rare occasions on-which  the common people are permitted  to gaze  upon  or mingle  with the  great ones in the party.   In future  weeks some fond, mother will tell  her  little   family   how  "Sir  Richard" patted the baby on the check  and said soft and soolhful nothings  winding all up with the soulful ad-  admonLtion  to  "grow  up   a   good  Conservative" and die in the faith.  The   overworked   disposition   of  the masses is to overrate their political  leaders.     They    look    upon  them a-s demi-gods.   This is wholly  a  delusion.   They are, after all,  but  clay,  in. various  and   varying  stages of plasticity.   The idea that  they are gods is sedulously fostered by the party press. - it is .a mistake that is advantageously counteracted when the gods come down  at  picnic   times   ami' mingle   with  the people.   They even speak    on  such occasions; sometimes as, lawgivers ,sometimes as prophets, even  false  prophets," and  sometimes  they go so far as to represent them  selves as Messiahs sent of Heaven  to   lead   the  people   to ^paradise.  What wonder that such condescension and sell-abasement, with liberal redeeming features of self 'ig-  grandizement, should win. the ad-  adorationi of   the   multitude!   The  "peepul" may gaze upon these great  and wise men with, unshaded eyes,  wondering   the   while   that , their  sight is not blinded.   It all "helps  the cause, and, is worth while ���������.

The   peculiar   fascination   of  Crustacea consists largely in the extraordinary variety of bizarre forms which  they have auaumed under the pressure  (so ,to speak) of their environment ���������  Infinite variations on much the same  theme of Joints and legs.    Furnished  by tiiuture   with   a   beautifully   articulated  suit of armour  (which  they  are compelled  to discard and  reproduce from time to time to allow for  growth),  evolution   has  had   to   play  some queer pranks with them to equip  them  for   the  very   varied   situations  In   life   In   which   we   find 'them   ���������  'exaggerating   or   diminishing   out   of  nil licririe of proportion (according to  our idea's of congruity)  a limb here,  a   joint   or   series   of   joints   there;  tucking one part of  the body  under  another;   flattening   into   a   plate   in  one   case,   drawing  out   into   a   mere  thread   In  another;   and   thus  and   in  other ways giving rise to the quaintest series of forms to be met with in  the    animal    kingdom.     Then    their  curiously   Intelligent   habit.8   are   no  less   fascinating   to   watch   ���������   their  habit, for Instance, of carefully  testing    their    environment   with    thoir  feelers;  their alternately retiring and  pugnacious  disposition;   their  Inimitable gait and comical ways of walking  off  sideways  and   of  "backing."    All  these features combine to awaken our  curiosity   and   strike   our   sense   of  humour.    Added  to  this lack of dull  monotony  in   the  group  is   the  additional advantage  to  the student that  Crustacea, where they occur (and they  occur   practically    everywhere),    are  comparatively easy to capture and to  keep] In   activity.    -They   do   not   require shooting sor. a laborious hauling  of  nets,  or  even  digging  up   to   any  extent   A dipping or a towing net or  a simple trap, is. generally all  that Is  necessary to ensnare  them.  No wonder, ^therefore, that the Crustacea are  a   favourite   group   .with   naturalists,  both'professional and amateur.        <.-,  BE/SURE-AND WORfWHE HORSE  XL \^TRADrOMARK\J  AXLEJ5REASE,  HARNESS' OIL,/ WHIPS,-  CURRY COMBS,  HALTERS,   BRUSHES,   SWEAT  COLLARS,    and also  -BICKMORE'S   GALL CURE.'wKtch  we  Warrant a satisfactory  Core for Galls.

She undresses every.day,  after   luncheon' and   sleeps   for -20 !  minutes.    She insists that one should  put on a nightdress and really go to  bed if one is to get the full advantage  of the afternoon's sleep, and that it  should not exceed 20 minutes.  A prolonged sleep In the afternoon  makes one heavy and stupid, and  keeps one wakeful when night comes,  but 20 minutes" sleep willrenew and  refresh immensely.--  .'' This, method is only ,-possible to' the  woman of leisure, and utterly- beyond  the woman of business. But she can  strive to get a sufficient amount of  sleep  at  night.  Of course Brother Brownt of The  Star,   including   the   silver   stars,  and   'something   of   a   substantial  .nature'   (whatever   that   may   be^  would   steal  the   Abbotsford  Pair  this year for the Farmer's Institute  if he dared.   He hates to acknowledge it but   a   great man;y people  on the prairie state that he is work  in,g almost day  ami night  to get  the fair over near Huntingdon.

Shoes are-one of the expenses of a  toilet that' may be reduced by care  alone. A worn-out shoe cannot be  renovated; no amount of 6kill will  make it pass as new. The only possible way to save in shoe leather is  to care properly for the ahoes while  wearing them. When they are taken  off they should be wiped at once, and  if wet filled with paper and put'in a  dry place (nor near the first) for  some hours. We do not advise putting  Bhoes into a bag, for the sake of meat-  ness. If boot-trees are not convenient  the boots or shoes should be stood  where the air can get to them, aa  this will tend to harden the soles.

Reports     of     the ���������   occurrence     of  globular, or ball .lightning during recent.'severe   thunderstorms   in -Europe1 have-   again" -drawn    attention',  to   tills   rare   and   singular   electrical'  manifestation.-Half a" century; ago the  reality of this phenomenon-was,much,  doubted,   but   the   gradual   accumulation of trustworthy evidence has now  thoroughly,   demonstrated -its   actual  existence.     The    records    agree    in  describing the appearance as that of  a luminous ball, generally of a bluish  coloiir,-and varying "in diameter from  a few inches to as much as three feet.  The   sphere   has   a   sluggish   motion,  either falling slowly from the clouds  or  drifting  over  the   surface  of  the  ground,  the  movement  always  being,  such  as to  give the Impression  that  the thunderbolt is of material heavier  than .air. It remains visible for several  seconds  or  even   minutes,  and  as  a  rule ' finally ' explodes '��������� with'   great  violence. ' The disappearance is generally followed by. a .strong,smell pi  ozone   In   the   locality.     During   the  period of visibility the ball often behaves in an extremely peculiar manner. -- Sometimes   It   seems   propelled  along' horizontally- by a feeble air current or by electric forces.  "Frequently   itj- has   been   seen   to   follow   the  course of a conductor, such as a water  main,- and It almost always, explodes  ori coming Into contact with a sheet  of water such  as a pond or stream.  The immense  store of  energy which  the ball undoubtedly contains Is evidently  not  held   in   the   shape   of  a  surface electric  charge,  as it is not  destroyed   by   contact  with   ordinary,  condiictors.   Thus the ball may touch  earth,- pass down a chimney, traverse  a room, and so on, without being dissipated,   although   it   has   thus   had  abundant   opportunity   of' giving   up  any surface charge of. electricity.    It  Is indeed this very tenacity of existence   which  has  in   the  past caused  certain physicists to be rather sceptical of the phenomenon, while so far  at least all attempts to produce analogous     appearances     experimentally  havo been  entirely unsuccessful.  Stinging Trees  in the southern part of Formosa  grows a tree, about 10ft. in height,  having long leaves which possess the  property of the nettle, and produce  a maddening irritation of the skin  when, Incautiously touched. The  natives call It chiao-jen-kou, meaning  "man-biting-dog." Mr. Tokutaro Ito,  of Toklo, who has recently made a  botanical exploration In Formosa, suggests the name "viper tree" as a more  distinctly warning title. There is:  another species of "stinging tree" in  Australia, which attains a height of  15 feet, and the effect of whose touch  appears to be even more maddening  to men and animals. Horses stung by  It have to be shot, and dogs, when  affected by the poison of the leaves,  run about whining and biting themselves'  Abbotsford; B.

Further, to protect employees  from greedy and cruel employers who  drive  a  man "to  death  because  it is  easy to get another one  to take his  place, we are constantly, passing more  and   more   stringest  Jaws   regulating  hours  of  labor,  conditions   in   which  people    work   In    various    establishments, the_ employment of women ,and  children,   and  other  common  factors  In   Industry  of  different   kinds.     In  other  words,  we  are  coming  to  see  j that   we,   can   not   afford . to   waste  humanity any more than  we can afford to waste our forests  or any of  our natural resources.

Experiments  in   Wireless   Telephony  Successful experiments have been  made lately in wireless telephony,  which may have far-reaching developments in aviation, particularly In war  service. Conversation was freely earned on with an aviator while he was  flying 750 feet in the air at a speed  estimated to be 56 miles an hour The  aviator was B. C. Huck, of Leeds, who  was using a Blackburn monoplane.  He wore on his head an ordinary  telephone receiving helmet, and on  his chest the ordinary mouthpiece.  Strapped on the machine was the  Aerophone" apparatus invented by  H. Grindell Matthews, the youngest  man ever elected a member of the  Royal Institution. This was the first  time wireless telephony', has been  tried on an aeroplane. Iluck's voice  was clear and  distinct.  Method of Finding nn Aeronaut's  Position.  When terrestrial objects are invisible, an aeronaut is compelled to  employ Indirect methods of finding  his position. Several such methods  have been invented during' recent  years. Berlingmaier and Marcuse  have employed magnetic measurements for this purpose and successful methods of informing an aeronaut  of-his position by means of wireless  telegraphy have been devised..Finally,  as tronomical methods have been proposed, in which the tedious reduction '  of the ��������� observations is effected by  means of special apparatus.   .  *  fr  BEWAEE   OF-SELFISHNESS  One of., the Dangers of a Happy Life  is Want of Thought for Others.

Apparently not satisfied with this device, - he   further   perrected   it   in   a  ipatentjof somewhat "later date, whereto he describes a steel-sheathed cable  for supporting the anchor,  the cable  ���������being  -provided   .with   a   device, for  lesseniiiig the effect of sudden shocks,  Ibis,, latter- feature being:.of_3rery eony  Persfstenee of Imtfnct.  Memory handed down through"  thirty generations is one of the perplexing, facts of science. Tlie beaver  flourished along the French rivers"  until killed off for its rur, but is now  known only in about a dozen of the  villages of the Rhone near Avignon.  For three centuries these villages  have had no trees to cut down for'  dams. The animals were compelled  to adopt a new mode cf life, and have  burrowed In the banks, shaping mud  with their tails as usual. Recently  some of them were taken by a Spanish  Count to forests on his estate. Very  strangely, they resumed the habits  dropped, three centuries before they  were .born, and at once be-san cutting  down trees and building dams.

She is-certainly the jnost  successful woman in business and  society, and where is the person who  will deny that she is the best wife,  mother, and"' friend ?  Experience teaches one that the  average woman with a naturally irritable temper often encourages it.  fosters it. But perhaps they wouldn't  if they knew that anger curdles the  blood, hinders circulation, and, consequently, makes the complexion bad  and dulls the eyes. It also weakens  a woman's wits, making her loss attractive physically affd mentally. Bad  temper does not destroy the mind, .but  it renders one unable to work  mentally.  H. E. H.
