Array rs a The first essential in any form of
credit instrument or money substitute is that it shall be convertible
into currency or accepted in payment at the holder's will."
A GLOBE  TROTTER.
DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are endowed with
this quality, and in addition possess very many other advantages, which
since the date of their origin have been greatly appreciated by tourists,
owing to the additional comforts afforded holders by their being relieved
of the many responsibilities undertaken by those carrying actual cash.
DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are issued in
convenient denominations of $10, $20, $50, $100, and $200. The cost
for the service is 10/- for each ^"100, with a minimum of 2/- per sale,
which can only be termed as very reasonable when compared with the
convenience afforded the holder, combined with an ALL RISK cover
against loss, theft, etc., until payment has been obtained.
DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are obtainable from
all Dominion Express and Canadian Pacific Offices. At the time of issue
the purchaser is asked to sign his or her signature in a space provided in
the upper left-hand corner of each cheque, and when payment is required,
to sign again in the lower left-hand corner, in the presence of the person
accepting the cheque.for payment. This means of identification, although
very simple, has proved itself an effective safeguard against cheques being
encashed by other than the accredited person.
For the convenience of its patrons all cheques furnished are suitably
bound in a neat leatherette wallet, so designed as to reduce the whole into
a very small compass.
DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are cashable everywhere by Banks, Hotels, Railway and Steamship Companies, and are
readily accepted at full face value in settlement of purchases, etc. CANADIAN  PACIFIC
