That tliJ Bank of Montreal ls one ot
our oldest as well as one of our most
Important financial Institutions, was
emphasised by the fact that the Annual Report held this week was the
$5th In the Bank's history. The
Bank Is yearly occupying a more important place ln the financial, commercial and industrial expansion ot the
Dominion. Tho Annual Report presented, which covered the year ejlda-i
the 31st October, 1912, showed net
profits foe the y*ear of »2,518,000,
which with a balance brought forward
of $1,855,000 und the premiums on new
stock amounting to 834,000, make a
total of over $5,207,000 available (or
distribution'! Quarterly dividends
anil two bonuses absorbed $1,894,000.
Tlle sum of $1,000,000 was transferre-1
to rest account, $1,000,000 to counting-
ent account, and $511,000 expended on
bank premises, which left a balance
to be carried forward $802,000. The
Bank has now total assets of nearly
$287,000,000, making lt one of thc
strongest financial Institutions on the
continent. During the year lt Increased Its paid up-capital to $16,000,-
000, increased Its rest account to a
similar sum, made large gains In deposits and in current loans, opened a
number of new branches, and otherwise kept pace with the growing prosperity of the Dominion. The fact
that the Bank made current loans of
nearly $120,000, shows that there is
a big demand lu the country for banking accommodation and that the Bank-
ot Montreal is doing its full share ln
catering to the business needs of the
communities where Its branches are
The year was the flrst under the gen-,
eral management of Mr. H. V. Meredith and the fact that the profits for
the year were some $242,000 greater
than those of tbe previous year, must
be regarded as not only satisfactory
to the shareholders, but as complimentary to the foresight and business
sagacity of the General Manager. It
ls doubtful lf the Bank Of Montreal
was ever ln as good condition to take
care of tbe growing needs of the Dominion than it Is at tbe present time.
Its increase In paid up capital and rest
accounts, its gain in deposits, total assets and other matters, makes It peculiarly fitted to take a leading place
In tbe financial and Industrial expansion of the country.
The addresses of the President and
General Manager were both comprehensive reviews of the financial, commercial and Industrial conditions prevailing throughout the Dominion.
That of the President which referred
to the Dominion as a whole, was masterly summary of the conditions prevailing at the present time. The address was optimistic in Its tone, Mr.
Angus declaring that conditions
throughout the Dominion were unusually sound and that satisfactory progress might he expected as long as
present conditions prevailed. Mr.
Angus touched upon the agricultural
expansion, ll," increase ln immigration, the growth of manufacturing,
railroad development, the shipping Industry and practically speaking every

Mr, Meredith In his address, referred more particularly lo the growth
nf the Bank and the banking business.

Great Storms of Modern Times
The recent devastation caused by a
hurricane to the Island of Jamaica has
powerfully affected the popular Imagination. Fortunately for us,- theBe
gataatrophies are i-are. When they
do occur It is commonly observed that
they are confined to certain areas, and
that, therefore special peoples are
more singularly attacked. The superstitious see In this phenomenon of
nature nothing other than special
Judgments of the Almighty, while the
practical-minded see only the occurrence of fixed.laws.-
While this la In mind, therefore. It
may be interesting to recall to mind
other notable storms of a disastrous
nature. Few middle-aged people, can
forget the terrible night In 1879 when
the Tay Bridge, a huge structure of
steel wickerwork near the estuary of
the Tay at Dundee, Scotland, was
swept by a tremendous gale, blowing
at the rate of 150 miles an hour, and
prfcslpltated ln the water. This, In
itself would have been a dreadful blow
to what was then ln the light o£ engineering science, considered to be
an imperishable monument to the genius of man. But dreadful to relate, a
train journeying from Edinburgh to
Aberdeen, was ploughing Its way
through the storm in the very middle
of the structure and along with six
hundred yards out of the two miles of
steel framework waB hurled into the
Tay. No one lived to record the
dread experience.
An older generation will doubtless
remember (he terrible series of hurricanes of 1863, which swept over Central Europe, devastating everything opposed to It and leaving wreck and
ruin behind. Peculiarly enough It did
not proceed far west. Obeying the
dictates of some as yet Inscrutable
law, it spent Its force somewhere in
ftild Atlantic, und America and Canada were saved tho-force of Its gusts'.
Old country people resident ln Canada will remember the hurricane that
swept over England on the 14th October, 1881, when houses were thrown*
down and unroofed, large trees torn,
up by the roots like playthings, telegraph wires and poles blown down,
and In addition to a great loss of
life, about 150 British wrecks ot shipping. In the same year, and peculiarly enough In the same month, foi
lowed what Is commonly regarded as
the great hurricane of history. In Hal-
fong, in China, a typhoon broke out,
raged for days and carried off to their
doom tho inarming total of 300,000
Doubt was at flrst cast on this total,
but a subsequent census revealed Its
accuracy. Then two years later a
tornado in Ujs Southern States carried
off 600 people," followed In 1885 by a
cyclone On thc Orissa coast, Bengal.

Mr. M. Brennan, an ex-sergeant of

"While serving with mv regiment In
fndla, on a hill station, I contracted a
severe cold which brought on acute
neuralgia, at times lasting for three
weeks. I was constantly suffering
almost every month In the year for
over seven years, the pain being sometimes so severe that I wished I was
dead. On my return to England I
seemed to get np better, tbough 1
spent large sums of money for _ne.ll
cal advice and medicine. Then 1
came to Canada, and about a year ago
saw the advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills In a Winnipeg paper. Although I had begun to think
my aomplalnt was Incurable I told my
wife that I Intended giving the Pills
a fair trial. I was suffering from
terrible pains when I began taking
file -fills, but before the second box
wns finished the pain began to disappear, and under a furtiher use of tho
Pills it disappeared entirely, and I
have not had a twinge ot It during
the past yjar. Only those who have

A Victoria dispatch of the 27th

eented in tbe house for 1349,362.
In the vernacular they are called
warrants from the lieutenant-governor, but his honor has only to sign
them. Outside of that he knows*
nothing about them.
Of this large amount more than
tl30,000 wasspenton elections. The
question is, how was it expended?
Premier McBride and Mr Bowser
could tell, but will tbey? The rest
of the amount is probably legitimate enough. Part of it, however,
is for petroleum licenses, and it is
yet doubtful whether petroleum hus
been found in this province.
As there is no opposition in the
house Premier McBride anil his
then can, and will, pass what ihey

any interim expenditure presented
in Ontario, where there is a popula

as great, will undoubtedly go.

Bonds of Small Deupmina*
tion Are Becoming Popular in Canada
Undoubtedly one of the moat im
liortant, if not the most important,
factors which have contributed to
making France the leading nation
of investors in tbe world baa been
the fact that bonds iasued in tliat
country have, in the- vast majority
of instances, been of sniall-denomi
nation, frequently running aa low
ae $20, says the Montreal correspon
dent of a New York finatjcial jour
nal. Thia ia in direct contrast to
the procedure followed in Canada
snd the United Stated, although it is
gratifying to note at the present
time tbat there ia a growing tendency to .issue bonds of small denomination ao as to place them
within the reach ol investors of
moderate means. It is apparent
that a wider market is awaiting
•mall bonds than those ha'-inir a de
nomination of 1500 or 11000 and
that il is easier to dispose of such
issues than it is those which are only
within the reach of tbe large investor.. After a period of speculation
in stocks listed upon tha Canadian
and American exchanges which
have fluctuated violently in times nf
linancial stress or because of the
manipulations  of  large  operators,
and also in questionable mining,
real estaje and other propositions,
the public is now demanding more
safety and is accordingly turning-to
bonds of the better sort. Therefore,
it is a question of adapting the
bonds to suit the requirement of the
small investor or else overlooking an
outlet for such securities as is well
worth catering to...,
The well known bond house of
St. Cyr,'Gonthier& Frigon, Montreal, has taken a leading part in
advocating the issuance of small
bonds in this country. ItB effortein
that direction have borne fruit and
have been the subject of much favorable comment updh the part of
leading financial and daily newspapers and in investment circles
generally throughout the Dominion.
.Now thnt tbe trail bas been blazed,
it is evident that other leading bond
houses will fall in Jine and make
special efforts tn secure small bonds
to offer their clients. , ~
The city of So1* , an i usnia.1
c-immunity of neHTiy 9000 people,
located on the south hank of tbe Pt.
Lawrence river, forty fiv* mileB below Montreal, has made provision
in ita recent bond issue far issuing
9100 bonds, as well as tliose having
a face value of 8500 and $1000,
which has heen the universal rule in
the past, A prompt response to the
offering of the. Sore! bonds was
These bonds, having an aggregate
face value.$210,01)0, are redeemable
in- 1952, and bear interest at the
rate of 5 per cent per >annum,' payable semi-annually. The value of
tbe city's taxable property amounts
to $2,249,279 and that non-taxable
to $1,244,700. It has a bonded indebtedness of $495,000, assets of
$343,480. and revenue $59,548 per
annum. The legal opinion of Hon.
F. L.- Beique, K.C,, is very favorable -to the issue from that stsnd-
point, while the financial condition
of the municipality and its prospects for future growth, being an
important shipping centre, are also
such as to make this issue very de
sirable for investment.

Newspaper taw
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a sub
HCiiber dues not take bis paper out nf
the pmtotlice, and state the reason for
its not U_.nn taken. Any neglect to
do ho makes the postmaster reaponsi
ble to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he muat pay all arrearages, or tbe publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the otlice or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a' paper
out of the post office, whether directed
to his name nr not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his piqier
stopped anil the publisher continues to
send It, ihe subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
pott office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay tor what
he uses.
5 The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers or perindi-
cals -fi-oin the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled lor, is prima
facie evidence of int._ntintu.HV.iiid.

and let It stand until It hns a mild but

cream for churning Is thut which tests

The temperature at which the cream
should be churned depends on the size
of fat globules, hardness of fill glob-

be determined except by trial. Thirty-
