The  present method of using boxes of  two sizes, it was contended, entailed-  a vast amount of-extra labor in  both packing and snipping.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9,  1917'  The  new  war  savings "certificates    which  have been created by the government to encourage thrift and economy and to give everyone an opportunity  to  assist in financing our  vvar  expenditure,  are now on sale at every  banlr and money order post office  in Canada.  The $25 certificate sells  for $21.50,  the  $50  for $43, and the $100  for $80.    As an investment these certificates  offer many attractive  features, chief of which  are the absolute security and the excellent interest return.    For  every $21.50 lent to the government now, 825  will be returned at , the end of three years.  There are tvyo pther features which are  especially interesting to small investors. First, the  certificates may be surrendered at any time, if  the buyer should need his money; and second,  each certificate is registered at Ottawa in the  in the buyer's name and, if lost  or stolen,  is  therefore valueless to anyone else.    But while  they are excellent from an investment standpoint,, the . certificates should appeal strongly  to Canadians because they offer to those who  must serve at home a splendid opportunity for  a most important patriotic service. *   The person who honestly saves to the  extent of   his  ability and places his savings at  the  disposal  of #ie government by purchasing these certificates, may feel that he is having a direct share  in   feeding,   equipping and  munitioning our  Canadian" soldiers, who arc  so  nobly  doing  their part.  / The Sun, at. $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper.

Many complaints that you do not hear 1vhen you  telephone, or that others do not hear you, are pos-*  sible due to improper methods of speaking into the  mouthpiece. ^  Engineers, after exhaustive tests, have made the  following conclusions:    p " * "  "The best results are obtained when the lips  are  very close  to  the telephone.    Removing  the lips  from'the telephone has the same effect  as length-,  en the line in use. .  'Tor instance, one inch away lengthens the line,  six miles. ' You-have to speak one-third louder for  the party listening to hear you than if your lips  were close-to.the telephone." With your lips two  inches away from the telephone, the line is lengthened ten miles;'three inches, 16 miles, four inches,  18 miles."
