Thc greatest campaign of publicity
that has ever been devoted to any
single province in Ganada is to be
inaugurated at once in the interest
of British Columbia. The resources
and advantages of the province will
be widely exploited. The Montreal
Star conceived the plan, and will
havethe co-operation of thc Minneapolis Journal, the greatest home-
seekers' newspaper in the United
StatcB. These papers will be aided
by the federal government, a8 we"
as the railway corporations of the
Dominion. Mr. Ward D. Williams,
western manager of the Montreal
Star and Weekly Herald, is in Vancouver at the present time working
on the scheme. Part of the details
as outlined by him to thc Province
newspaper are as follows:
The Montreal Star and Weekly
Herald has been receiving reliable information from the great railway systems, transcontinental lines and other
sources, regarding the great How of immigration that is coining into Canada
this year, and regards the present
time as ) articularly opportune for a
cpncerCedTand systematic effort to promote the development of British Columbia because of the great attention
the subject is aronsing in Europe antl
throughout the United States and Canada.
From all over the British Isles a
superior class of Immigrants is preparing to come this year to the Golden
West, and I think your people will
agree that the plan to swell the number and provide efficient information
will bo a great investment for Canadians. Then, too, newspaper circulation
ii the best possible iiied.iiiu to reach
these people in the old land. The
people who read newspapers, who are
intelligent enough to comprehend the
descriptions of the country and to
judge for themselves where they wish
to locate, are the people we want in
C miida to swell our population and tool-case tin' roll of our citizenship.
British Columbians never need fear the
class of immigration that will be attracted here through the medium of
Canadian newspapers circulating in
the old country. We reach the reading
public, mid it won't be our fault if
every man, woman und rbild in the
old land does not know exactly what
conditions to expect when he comes to
any part ef Canada.
One of the greatest advantages offered iu the proposed campaign is the
assurance that the very laiest and correct general information und statistics,
absolutely up to date, and psescnted lo
the reader in the form of crisp, cur
rent newspaper reports, will be dis
seminated in the United States,
Europe and eastern Canada, thus
placing in the bands of iiomeseekel's
and investors the very mutter they require, and putting the subject in an
attractive and forceful manner, which
has not been done hitherto.
We do nut | ropose to allow our efforts to be curtailed to u mcro, flowery
"write-up" of the country. It is doubtless very interesting to the average
reader in' England to listen to flowing
descriptions nf western sconoryj of thc
splendid mountains, lakes, rivers and
of   tiie   ureal  natural features.    Hut
these are of small practical benefit to
the farmer or the artisan of the' old
laud who wants to come to the new
country to make his home. He wishes
to know all about the soil, how much
he will have to pay for land, where
and how and under what conditions he
can market his produce, and what
chances he will have of building up a
home. We will rIiow him all these
things—accurately, from an everyday,
practical standpoint, and we will show
him in a manner that he may place
absolute dependence upon it. Descriptions of ltaalities will be accompanied by the latest government statistical information regarding them.
The plan has been thoroughly matured before being brought to Vancouver. The federal government is cooperating and the C. P. R. and other
railway systems have made liberal appropriations. Mr. Williams is here to
gain similar support from the leading
interests of the province. He promises
iu return that it will result in the
greatest advertising of British Columbia throughout the world that has ever
been attempted. Properly worked out |
on the lines of Mr. Williams and the '
Star, the plan appears to just what
this province has been lookiug for. It
is olearout, energetic newspaper advertising, descriptive of the country, to be
written in a manner interesting to nonresidents and altogether instructive.
The states of Washington and Oregon
have, during the last few years, been
opening their arms to thousands of
homesceke.ts, who have been drawn
westward by just such advertising as
this. But the present plan is on a
very much larger scale and should lie
productive of greater results than any-
thin'- ever attempted even on the
American Pacilit coast.
Mr. Williams discussed the details
of his plan as follows:
The Family Herald ami Weekly
.Star of Montreal proposes to inaugurate a vigorous campaign with the object of promoting the agricultural,
mining and industrial development of
B'itish Columbia during the most favorable months of the present year- It
Is proposed to publish a special section
of the paper, each weekly issue, devoted
entirhly to the giving of information,
rilti'ii and illustrated, cuncerningtlu'
advantages which the country oilers te
settlers and investors.
Every possible detail uf information
will bo afforded, The design is to provide tho public with tin- information
which men would got first-hand in
coming to this country. The interests
iu the west are diversified   enough    to
give opportunity for description for an
entire season, and it will be the aim of
the entire plan to give a broad antl at
the same time an accurate idea of every
industrial proposition in the country,

to live in order to go to heaven when
they died. Among other things,
she told them that nil their good

the good deeds outweighed the bad
ones tbey would go to heaven. If
the bad deeds predominated, however, they had better take an electric
fan and a goisl supply of ice along
with them on their lust journey. One

for 1904 is now ready. It will be
mailed to any address fur 30 cents.

costly book can be sent prepaid sd

prepared to study the heavens, or
the storms anil weather in 1004,
without this wonderful Hicks.Almanac nnd Prof. Hicks' splendid paper.
Word and Works. Hoth are sent
for only 81 a year. Word and Works
is among tho best American magazines. Like the Hicks Almanac, it
is too well known to need further

good or found a warmer place in the
hearts of the people. Send orders to

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, page brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
antl comfortable ride through the
heart of tho Roelcy Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This yuti can do by traveling on,
thc Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World."
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice nf live
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is (he best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, n perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. Xo more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can bo found
than is provided by these excursions.

Just what you want

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of tho work anil promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory wo have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

THE   TORONTO
DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR    ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at tbe price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast antl ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tbe intrinsic ifierits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
the big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

The Female Barber.
"Most fellows have a fancy barmaid,"
says "David Harum" in the "Sydney
Bulletin." "My fancy ii a pretty little
lady barber, who has to put every common Johnny in creation under the chin,
and aoap him with both tongue and
brush at the same time. It makes me
jealous. I visit her three times* a week,
generally at slack times, and an she
scrapes my face she tells me her troubles
and sometimes allows a big tear to dtop
on my nose.
"She works from S.30 to 6 on weekdays and till 10 on Saturdays, and gets
fifteen -.hillings per week. There ure
two other women in the shop—the pro-
prletress and a slave, like mv little woman, who does the same and gets the
same—viz., fifteen shillings per week.
My girl reckons the hawk-eyed proprietress is a devil to get on with, and
clears £10 a week. She fines the girls
sixpence every time they cut a man. My
girl loses on an average four shillings a
week at this. 'Unless you soon earn
enough to marry me, I'll be cutting
someone's throat/ she said yesterday,
Poor little iieggar! She's miserable. Took
her out List Sunday afternoon. Passed
two Johnnies; heard one of them say,
.There's the little girl from the barber's
»hop!' Felt mad. and would have
umped ou him—only it wits Sunday.
I'm only a stniijglin-i Journalist, and as
•oon as I am able to dig my hand deeper into the pocket where 'The Bulletin'
*eep» it* money, my 'lady barber fancy'
and I will be wedded.   Oh, happy day!"
