If you COULD (although, OP COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kind of goods) You might find  half a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  "If ��������� your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop'! EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer-  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

A. BATES, -        - Editor and Proprietor  THE ARGUMENT IN A NUTSHELL  FRIDAY,  DECEMBER 31,  1915  Ere another issue oi" this paper time will have passed from  1915 to 191G. We take this opportunity of wishing our friends,  readers and patrons a "i-lappy New Year, May it be one of happiness and prosperity," and yet in extending the wish ail may have  their misgivings as to the great happiness of our country to  which prosperity in war times may be a mere mockery, notwithstanding our best wishes for each other's welfare for 1916 and  future years.  The war is still with us.    Some of the best and richest blood  that ilows in the veins of true Canadians is stirring manly hearts  at the front, near the front, or preparing for liie front���������the  trenches, to fight the'enemy.    Tne war, apparently, does not  seem to be nearer an end than it did a year ago; yet there are  those who claim 'it is all over except the shouting.'    Were it so!  But it is a great fight, and nothing in the history of the Canadian  country or the British Empire, like this war has ever waged before.    Napoleon's war���������the greatest of modern history, nereto-  fr,re, was a mere infant compared with this war, which has often  been termed Armagadeon (the plains of that ancient battlefield  is not near large enough to accommodate the armies of 1914-15-  16���������7posibly 17).    it is a war of horrors; a war of the utmost  misery; a war of prolonged agony; a war between a great nation  seeking worldwide recognition, and a nation or nations, an empire,-with its individual privileges already established; when the  outer shells have been taken on: it is a war between Imperialism  (German) and Individual Liberty (Britain).    British Individual  Liberty has cost Britain the blood of kings and citizens.  A few weeks ago we all read of the accident to King George  King of the Britisii Empire. The public have ��������� never yet been  appraised of the true facts of the accident which laid low for the  time being the King of all the Britains. But we read very recently that he is almost, recovered. May that be the truth!  Britains! Canadians! look upon the King of Great Britain (including Scotland and Ireland; and the Overseas Empires, as a  figure reared as the result of that strife after freedom, whicli  took definite action at Runneyniede, and saw light in the wars  of the Roses, the religious actions of Queen Elizabeth, the execution of Charles, the Battle of the Boyne, the Act of Union in  Queen Anne's reign, the Abolition of Slavery,the Reform Bill and  the numerous intervening events which gained for the individual  the present day freedom dating from the days of the Feudal  System, when a man could scarcely be found who would rise in  public, and proclaim, 'I am an Englishman'���������to the-present day  when it is the proud boast,.from all quarters of the civilized  world; I am a Britain born! and a Britisher I shall be till I die���������  and many are dying fighting for the rights that are synonymous  with individual freedom and Britain's King. For this we"love;  for this we revere our Majesty, King George���������a devotion on our  .part that is not always realized by any but a Britisher, a Canadian, a New Zealander or an Australian. 'A king to us means  much.  For King; for Liberty���������not the license of Uncle Sam���������our  young men are enlisting for service. Father, mother, brother,  sister, sweetheart and wife are left behind in the one predominating' duty of fighting for our Empire, our King and our individual freedom. Who shall say we shall not win in a righteous  and just cause against that Imperialism of the dark ages synonymous" in British history with the times of the early Plaritagenets  ���������centuries ago. For the present advanced manhood and womanhood then the British Empire is at war.  In private life, in business and in the sterner realities of the  government of our country, we have always with us the man.  who says 'you are acting foolish!' To wit: the Slacker; Lord  Northcliffe, Bouraseau and a few others, Ford, tiie hyphenated  Americans, and the hyphenated Canadians, but that a right  course is being pursued we witness millions of Britishers, and  hundreds of thousands of Overseas Empirites enliisting because  the Empire is in danger.  In face of war however great we will extend to each other  the New Year greetings, but possibly not with as cheerful a  heart as when the victory is ours.  A writer in the University Magazine recently attacked the "Made-in-  Canada" movement in somewhat vigorous  fashion.       After, commenting  on the selfishness of those who are  responsible for it he delves economic  arguments, maintaining that    if    a  country does hot buy it, cannot sell,  and   that' goods   are   exchanged   for  goods.    There.'is a certain measure  of truth in this latter statement, but  the "Made-in-Canada" argument does  not deny this. ,  It Is a practical policy  dictated   by  motives   of  enlightened j  self-interest, based on the theory that  what is good for Canada and Canadians must, in the long run be good  for the British Empire, of which we  form a part.    The "Mado-in-Canada"  argument is simply this:  Canada is a young country, which  although it has one of the most mod-  crate protective  tariffs  in the world I  has built up a great national indust-i  'rial  system.    For a couple of years  the output, of this plant has decreased  because the demand fr manufactured goods has fallen  off, with the  result that many workers are out of  employment and.a great quantity of  unsold goods is stored in warehouses.  Yet we are buying hundreds of millions of dollars  worth  of manufactured goods abroad.    Those who advocate  tho  "Mado-iii-Canada"  policy  say to,Canadian buyers:  'Before you  purchase an Imported article see if  you can find a similar Canadian article . see   if   you   can   find   a  similar  Canadian article which would suit you  You will probably find it and you will  find  probably,  too,  that  the, quality  and price compare favorably with the  quality and price of the imported article.    If you should discover in some  cases that the Canadian article is not  quite as good or quite so cheap as the  imported article, ask yourself if your  patronage will help in time to bring  about  a  stato  of   affairs  where   the  Canadian  article  would 'be equal  or  superior to tile imported article. Possibly,  in view of  the  present extraordinary   situation,   you   might   concede a little in favor of the Canadian  article,   but  we   do  not   ask you   to  make any'considerable sacrifice to do  so.    If thousands  of' Canadian  buyers follow this policy.Canadlan goods  can be produced in such great quantities that their  quality  can' be improved and'their price lowered. Canadian  raw  material will  be utilized  at home; and our foreign obligations  will be reduced."  GOD SAVE  OUR SOLDIERS  (May.be sung to the tune of God  Save tho King.)   .  God  save our soldiers bold,  And give  them  heants  of gold;  Where'er they go.  Lord give them strength to fight,  In battling for the right;  Be Thou their guide and light,  Thyself,to  know.  God   bless  their  families,  And fill their homes with'peace,  Till  war is   o'er'.  And when the war is past;  May peace forever last.  ���������  And joys becloud the past,  For ever more.  God'help  mankind at large  Their duties to discharge   "  Whate'er they be.  May men o, wealth be found ���������  Whose hearts with love abound  To scatter all around,  Their sympathy'.  Lord.

ROBERTS  Plumbing Shop  A DOLLAR TALKS  The unmarried men in Canada dearly love life.  Bowser's "Statement" contains reference to almost everything that affects our welfare, except the one all-important matter���������the education of the rising generation of our fair province.  In Dr. Young's hands this might have been overlooked, but���������the  scene has changed.    Further comment is unnecessary.  China is now an Empire���������the Empire upon which the sun  is always setting.  "I am a Dollar!- A little ageworn,  perhaps, but still in circulation.      I  am proud of .'myself for being in circulation.,   lam no tomato-can dollar  ���������not  I.    This, town is  only my a-  dopted homej but I like it and hope  to  remain  permanently.       When    I  came out of the mint I was adopted  into  town like this in another province.  But,  after a time  I was sent  off to a big city, many miles away. I  turned up in a mail-order house. For  several  years I stayed  in that city.  Millionaires  bought'cigars with me.  I didn't like that, for I believe in the  plain people. Finally a traveling man  bruoght me to this town and left me  here.     I was.so glad to ge tback to  a smaller town that I was determined to make a desperate effort to stay.  "One day a citizen of this town was  about to send me back to that big  city. I caught him looking over a  mail-order catalogue. Suddenly I  found my voice and said to him:  'Look here, if you'll let me stay in  this town I'll circulate around and do  you a lot of good. You' buy a big  beefsteak with me, arid "the butcher  will buy groceries, and the grocer  will buy hardware, and the hardware  man will pay the printer, and the  printer will buy wood, and the livery-  stable man who sells the wood will  buy oats to feed his horses from a  farmer and the farmer will buy' a  piece of fresh meat from the butcher  who -will get his horse shod. In the  long run, as you see, I'll be more usb  to you at home than if you sent me  away forever.  Moral: Spend your dollars at home  if possible and they will come back  again.

C.  *���������* i>*i        \#  THE PRIME MINISTER AND .MACHINE  GUNS'  After the very definite, almost emphatic statement of the  Prime Minister, at St. John, N. 13., on October 20th no further  money should be diverted from the Patriotic Fund by well meaning but rather thoughtless people who claim that the equipment  of'Canadian Forces is insulliciont. Sir Robert has made it very  plain that the Government is fully prepared to make every  necessary provision for guns, munitions and equipments and he  appeals to the gencrosily of the public only on behalf, of the  Canadian Patriotic Fund, the lied Cross Society and sister associations. We quote below an extract from ,lhe speech m question:���������  "Regarding machine guns, we realized early in the War the  necessity of an abundant supply, and orders have been given  from time to time for a very large number. Those ordered during the first twelve months of the War are now being rapidly  delivered, and they are more than sufficient to uquip two full  army corps up-to,the highest standard of the enemy's forces.  During the past summer the provision of machine guns became a  matter of vital interest to tho Canadian people,    as    reports  through  the press  emphasized  the  necessity  that our  forces  should be adequately supplied with all the machine guns that  could be utilized.    Patriotic individuals  offered  to  contribute  large sums for this distinctive purpose.    The Government    of  Ontario made a similar patriotic proposal, and throughout the  country various communities generously subscribed to funds for  this object.    During my absence in Great Britain my colleagues  endeavored to make it clear to the people that an ample supply  of machine'guns had been ordered and that these would be paid  out of the Canadian Treasury.    The Treasury of Canada ought  properly to bear all the cost of equipping and maintaining our  forces in the field, and that has been our policy.    Nevertheless,  the spirit and impulse which prompted our people could not be  . \ stayed, and, indeed, any attempt to stay it would have been misunderstood.    Up to date the sums thus received by the Government amount to $773,327.95.  . ,     , "In dealing with other needs which will certainly arise, the  Government will not fail to remember that these generous and  freewill contributions have been made.   And in all your splend-  ' id generosity, do not forget the Patriotic Fund'and the Canadian  Red Cross Society.    They have done a great work, but they have  ���������a still greater work to do.    Appeals which assuredly will not fall  on deaf ears must be made in the early future.    See that the response is generous and ample. . When you are making provision  for the Canadian Patriotic Fund, the Canadian Red Cross Society  . the Canadian- War Contingent Association and other like patriotic organizations, you may be assured that the Government  . will not fail to make every necessary provision for guns, munit-  L ',/ipjis and equipments;"���������By request of Dominion Government.  :'!V/:jV-"The ListeningvSKbst" published in the trenches has its column _of "Answers to'Correspondents'', from which the following  is taken: (No-Nine, Med. Detail) No you are wrong; we believe  the health of the German Navy to be much improved since going  to the Kiel Canal.    ���������'"':'���������  (Fruit Grower, Canada) Yes, you are right; The Canadian  Tommy is very fond of apples and they are seldom seen in  France. .

(Eager) Fix your bayonet independently;' Do not wait for  right hand man to take three smart paces in front of trench.  Post Corporal:���������When delivering mail in the trenches it is  not advisable to go out after the listening patrol. Trie most effective way to bring in the L. P. is to "make a noise, like a rum  issue. ,'  Pte. Walter Laxton says he has been made a Scout; and that,  there eight of them whose duty it is to watch the Germans and  their movements.    He says-that they often go within a few feet  of the German lines.    He refers to the night of November 16th  when it was the duty of the Scouts to make a way into the German's line or trench.    He tells how .the trench of the Germans  was bombed in the afternoon and how by,moonlight three bridges were put across a stream, the last bridge being laid about thirty feet from the German lines.    When this was'completed the  barbed wire entanglements were cut.    These led,to tho parapet.  This was'done without the Germans hearing them.    When-finished the Scouts went back to lead out the men, bridge guards,  bomb throwers and bayonet men and got into the German'trench  es before they knew what had happened.    Some prisoners were  taken and others bombed, and only one man of the 7th was lost  and another wounded.    He says, 'there was a terrible racket'.  Signals went.up and their artillery roared in answer to ours, machine guns cracked mingled with rifle fire and the poor fellows  whom we took were frightened to death and were quite willing  to surrender.    It is claimed that the success of the job was due  to the good work of the Scouts.    They were promised five days'  leave and were also mentioned in the despatches; and one corporal said that the Scouts were recommended for the D. C. M.  Says Pte. Laxton, "that is the second time I have been mentioned  in (he despatches"    General Alderson was here today and congratulated, us; he also shook hands with us all and introduced  his friend, who is an officer in the French army.    He also congratulated us.    Pte. Laxton got a few souvenirs, one hat, one  mark, a piece of German barbed wire, a bullet and a cartridge;  also a button.    Arthur was not with us, but wanted to go in the  worst way.   - It was not his fault that he was not in the midst of  it'  Since lhe advent of the Bowser administration and the retiring of Hon.
