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  TOBUY 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.

These prices arc  good for balance of this month.  What Has Happened to Our Dollar?  The average individual 'is perplexed because, the Canadian dollar does not buy .as  much as it did years ago, nor does it buy now  as much as'it did one year ago.. In 1899 the  goods then purchasable by one dollar, today  will cost $1.49. A year ago they cost $1.35.  A record of prices kept officially enables The  Financial Post to determine with accuracy the  purchasing power of the dollar..  In July, 1914, the purchasing power had  been reduced by 25.7 per cent, and in October  1915,'by 23.73 per cent, as compared with the  prices in 18S9, so that at the dates mentioned  the equivalent value of- one dollar in goods  was 74 cents and 67 cents'respectively.  For the same reason that the baker now  gives less daily bread for a dollar, the investor wants more for lending a dollar. This is  shown by the fact that the Dominion and provincial governments and other borrowers have  had''to pay more for loans in "the last few years  than they had around 1909.   '  On the basis of the present purchasing pow  er of the Canadian dollar, an investor who  bought a 30-year bond in 1899, making a similar purchase today would expect something-  like the following increase in the rate of interest:  4 per cent in 1SS9 should expect 5.95 per  cent now.  5 per cent in 1899 should expect-7.44 per  cent now. '   ,  :"6 per cent in 1899 should expect 8.93 per  cent now  The following table,illustrates some fluctuations in the investment value of the Canadian dollar between 1905, 1910, 1914,and October 1915, oil the basis of the average wholesale price of commodities, as ascertained by  the department of labor:  4 per cent in 1905 equivalent to 5.20 per  cent now.  5 per cent in 1905 equivalent to 6.50 per  cent now.  6 per cent in 1905 equivalent to 7.80 per  cent now.  6 per cent in 1905 equivalent to 7.80 per  cent now.  4 per cent in 1910 equivalent to 4.78 per  cent now.  5 per cent in 1910 equivalent to 5.98 per  cent now.  6 per cent in 1910 equivalent to.7.17 per  cent now.  4 per cent in 1914 equivalent to 4.42 per  cent now.  5 per cent in 1914 equivalent to 5.53 per  cent now.  6 per cent, in 1914 equivalent to 6.63 per  cent now.  This is another illustration that gold is not  wealth in itself but simply a commodity like  wheat or coal and derives its value chiefly because it is a good means of exchange of their  commodities, fairly easy to handle, and hard  to get, except by some such exchange.    Cap  ital is symbolized by gold, and demands its  wages equally with labor���������an increase in time  of stress, a decrease when times are slack.���������  The Financial Post.  "London will gain a great orator and'British Columbia will lose one by the advent of  ���������Dewdney Dick,' as Sir Richard McBride is  called by his friends in British Columbia, He  is coining to represent the province of which  he lias been Premier for twelve years. He  might,have' been Prime Minister of the Dominion, but he has always had an eye on Imperial politics, so perhaps the Mother of Parliaments will see him one day."���������Mirror.  Macdonald, the Liberal candidate of,Vancouver may be elected to represent Vancouver in the provincial house���������defeating Tisdall  in the bye-election. It is possible if the two-  run. But it is'said that J.oe. Martin and L. D.  Taylor want to again test the public feeling  in the bye-election���������got so used to running  that -they cannot resist the temptatin when  oportunity affords itself. But should Macdonald be elected, he will have a great time boosting for his leader, Mr. Brewster; or will he<  do as Brewster did usurp the leadership for  himself? He would be foolish if he did not.  Is that not how Brewster got it? He would  be a real live linguist, and if talking was o,f  any avail' he sure would talk the whole Liberal party into thinking he was the right man  in the right place.  Again comes up the subject of the Canadian  enlisting. A Toronto man says he is ashamed  to be a Canadian as they are not coming to  the front to fight for their country as quickly  as the English in Canada are. It is different  in British Colubia, with a population of about  equal British and Canadian,born, the recruiting looms up about equal for both.  Things are never right in Toronto anyhow.  They are always quibbling or boasting.  Germans imagine they will induce neutrals  to believe that all trade should continue in.  spite of the existence of a state of war. The  immediate effect of any such international arrangement as this would be to paralyze forever the power of the Maratime nations. Sea-  pwer is exerted to embarass the enemy's trade  and to compel economic difficulties which in  time will shatter the morale of a people. If  Great Britain were mad enough to give up in  the Council Chamber what three generations  of British sailors have fought to gain and keep  the end of the Empire would be in sight. German opinions on "Freedom of the Seas" are  no more dependable than German opinions on  the origin of the war, or the Prussian ancestry  of Shakespeare.���������Ex.  It is time now for the fruit grower to be  planning for the next summer disposal, of his  fruit. What about thorough organization for  the year? Will it be shipping in car load lots  or the individual marketing of the fruit at the  mercy of the middleman?  THE   MATSQUI   COUNCIL  (Continued  from  Page One)  1-4 of Sec. 25 Tp. 13 to C. Rum-  mel.    Carried.  Owen-Phinney, that Councillor Melander be appointed as  representative of the Council in  matter of the application of A.  F.
