YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR OWN TELEPHONE SERVICE
Leading telephone engineers have trade the following
statements:
When speaking into a telephone the best results are
obtained with the lips very close to the transmitter���just so
they do not touch it. Removingtie lips from the transmitter
has the same effect as lengthing the line in use as follows:
One inch lengthens the line 57 miles.
Two inches lengthens the line 128 miles.
Three inches lengthens the line 179 miles.
Four inches lengthens the line 218 miles.
Co-operation by subscribers is earnestly requested in everything which will give to them BETTER  AND  MORE EFFICIENT TELEPHONE SERVICE.

Why does Canada Raise Money
by Selling Bonds ?
T30NDS are issued payable in ten or twenty years, as the case may be,
*-* It means that repayment of the money will be spread over ten or twenty
years instead of being raised by taxation to meet current expenditures.
To raise by taxation all the money as fast as it is needed to carry on
Canada's share in winning the war, would be an unbearable burden upon
the people.
It would mean that more than a million dollars a day would have to be
raised right now.
But to raise money by selling Canada's
Victory Bonds means that those of the
next generation who will benefit by the
sacrifices this generation is making;
���who will share in the freedom this
generation is fighting for and largely paying
for���will also pay their share.
���'*' * *
And when yoii buy Canada's Victory.
Bonds you make a first-class business investment in a securityrtliat ;is absolutely
safe, likely to ei__hance/ in^value^^^
war, and bearing a good irate'.;of interest.
You help the country by keeping open
the British market for Canadian' products
and this helps the general welfare in which
you share.
* ��� ���
And again, every Canadian who buys
a Victory Bond becomes a financial partner
or backer of Canada in the war.
When you buy a Canada Victory Bond
you give a personal pledge that you are
going to help to win the war.
Every man and woman in Canada can
help to win the war by buying Canada's
Victory Bonds. And Canada wants the
personal, individual interest and co-operation: of every_^r^^ in the
^country.
The buying of Victory Bonds by the
whole people unites them in a determination
to win the war.
Every purchase of Canada's Victory
Bonds is a blow for freedom against the
tyranny of German Kultur.
Every bond sold is a new guarantee
that Canada is in the War to the finish,
until victory is with the Allies and the
world has been made safe to live in.
Every bond vou buy is a new pledge
that Canada will remain true to herself, the
Empire, the Allies and to freedom's cause.
So it is both patriotic and good business to
Buy Canada's Victory Bonds
Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee
ia co-operation with the Minister of Finance
of the Dominion of Canada.

CANADA
Will Class One
One Hundred Thousand Men?
It will be greatly to the advantage of Canada if the entire quota of 100,000 men to be raised under
the Military Service Act can be secured from the first class; that is, from the men between the agefof 20
And 34 who were unmarried or widowers without children on July 6th, 1917.
Thi�� is almost self-evident for the fallowing reasons:
it is admitted that, between the ages of 20 and 34, the average num is at the height of Mr
physical strength and is most adaptable to the change pf conditions fromcsvil-Mtlife;
the military service of unmarried men and widowers without children wtiuld GcctsbCitle** _
distress than that of most others, since they are largely without dependents.   Also, it would'
���   entail less financial burden for-Canada, through separation allowances, etc.
Authorities estimate that, after all proper exemptions have been allowed. Canada should ba_��b_e to
produce from the first class 100,000 men fit for service, so the drain upon tbe man power of the country
will not be severe.
Members of Class One will be well advised to present themselves for examiixatioiUnnfteatjktely to
the Medical Board in their district Upon examination as to their physicat'fitac**, they wiHbepMcedil.On*
of the following Categories:
Category A���if fit for service in overseas fighting units. ���-   .,..-���._ ^ ..
Category B���if fit for service overseas in Army Medical Corps, Forestry Stataltott. etc.
Category C���^if fit for service in Canada only.
Category E���if unfit for military service of any nature.
If not placed in Category A, the applicant will know that he is not IiaUeforlnim__dia}ei-��i��ie����tbut will
go to the Post Office and send in a claim for exemption with his Medical Certificate attached, when he will re*
ceive in due course a certificate of exemption until those in his medical category �����aat__s��0__!fedim s^Mlee.
Where a man, who is placed in category A, feels that exemption should be- _4}eweeVs_��*!_pUi-__-t_or__
form can be secured from the postmaster. This form, when filled in, will be forwarded by the poshnastf-f
to the registrar of the district, and the applicant will be informed by mail as to-tbe- tfaMf-a_-_4 piste/fa*t__r#-
