BANKS OF CANADA GAIN; PEO
PLE'S SAVINGS BIG..
Ite-conl of Financial Inalltntlona for
the Year 1005 Shorn Ilemarkabla
Prosperity All Over tho Dominion.
Ottawa, Ontario, March 1. The year
which has Just closed has been one
most satisfactory and progresslTe with
tho financial Institutions of Canada,
and tho business of the chartered banks
reflects tho unprecedented prosperity
enjoyed throughout the country during
the year 1903.
Tho Increased demands made upon
the banks of tho Dominion by the com
mercial and agricultural expansion of
tho year wcro provided for without the
monetary disturbances sometimes noted
In tho United States. Whatever opin
ions may be held as to the composition
of tho Canadian banking system, it is
claimed that its flexible currency has
many commendable features, and with
out which the last few months of the
year must havo produced a money
stringency with probably disastrous re
sults. It Is felt that n wider Held of
credit In the Dominion Is needed, and
consequently the capital of many exist
ing banking institutions has been In
creased and several new banks are In
process of organization.
Tho chartered banks of Canada to
day enjoy the confidence ot the genu 1
public to a greater extent than ever be
fore. Tho total deposits of the people
In theso Institutions last year were
?o22,317,000, which shows an Increase
of over $20,000,000 for the year. In
actual money In bank probably no otn
er country In tho world, comparatively
speaking, can make n better showing
Tho total deposits ot the Canadian
peoplo In tho government savings
banks, In sncclal savings institutions,
and in tho chartered banks alone
amounted last year to the enormous
sum of ?C00,4W,0O0. This represents
an average credit balauce of orer $100
per head of the population of the Do
minion, and It Is stated that the only
other country In the world that ap
proaches this record Is Denmark, where
the average credit balance li about
$96.60 per capita. The above figures,
however, do not comprcheaa moneys
nepMlted with private, bankers, lean
companies, mortgage corporatleu and
trust companies, or what Is hoarded up
In secret hiding places.

The clipping of a horse in the early
spring Is now conceded oy nil the lead
ing veterinarians to be na essential to
n horse's woll being ns shoeing him or
giving him a comfortable bed to He on.
Farmers In England and France have
been clipping their horses for many
years, nnd American farmers are not
slow to realize Its advantages. A
clipped horso dries out rapidly after a
hard day's work, and will rest comfort
ably and bo refreshed for the work tho
following day. An unclippsd horse Is
liable to catch the heaves, pneumonia
nnd nil sorts of colds, rheumatism, etc.
More especially Is this so In the early
spring, when his hair Is long nnd he
Is "soft." If worked bard he will per
spire freely and tho moisture will bo
held by bis long hair, and the food that
should go to nourish him will be used
to replenish the heat that Is being con
stantly taken from his body by the
miss of cold wet hair. If clipped, the
perspiration will evaporate almost as
soon ns secreted, and when put In the
stable ho rests comfortably and his
food doos him good.
Somo years ago a Buffalo street car
company tested the valuo of clipping
In the following manner: They owned
KOO horses, nnd 250 of theso were
cliiped early In the spring nnd 230
wero not clipped. A careful record was
kept of results, and it was found that
of tho 230 undipped Horses 153 were
nflllttcd with coughs nnd pneumonia,
whllo of tho 230 clipped not ouo ease
of sickness was reported.
A man would not expect to enjoy
very good health If ho did hard manual
work clothed with heavy underwear, a
heavy suit nnd n fur overcoat, .and
after perspiring freely, as ho naturally
would, go to sleep without removing
same. It Is just as ridiculous to expect
a horso to be In perfect health If
worked under the samo conditions.
If you would get tho best returns
from your Investment m your horse,
treat him right, and bo sure and clip

SKETCH OF THE LIFE

Had Its Birth and How the "Panic of ,73" Caused
it to be Offered for Public Sale in Drug Stores.

maiden name was Estcs, was born in
Lynn, Mass., February 9th, 1319, com

their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, thrco sons and a
In those good old fashioned days it
was common for mothers to make
their own home medicines from roots
and herbs, nature's own remedies
calling in a physician only in specially
1 urgent cases. By tradition aud ex
rjcricncQ man? of them trained a won
derful knowledge of tho curative prop
erties of the various roots and herbs.
Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest
in the study of roots and herbs, their
characteristics and power over disease.
Sho maintained that Just as nature so
, bountifully provides in the harvest
fields and orchards vegetable foods of
all kinds ; so, if we but take the pains
to find them, in the roots and herbs
I of tho field there are remedies cx-
&ressly designed to cure the various
Is and weaknesses of the body, and
it vv as her pleasure to search these out,
nnd prepare simple and effective medi
cines for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a rare combina
tion of the choicest medicinal roots
and herbs found best adapted for the
euro of the ills and weaknesses pecu
liar to the female sex, and Lydla E.l'inlc-
tiams menus ana neighbors learned
that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among

But in 1S73 the financial crisis struck

of too i'lnknam (amily, as this class
of business suffered most from

argued that the medicine which was
so good for their woman friends and
neighbors was equally good for tho
women ot the whole world.
The Pinkhams had no money, and
little credit. Their first laboratory
was the kitchen, where roots and
herbs wero steeped on the stove,
gradually filling a gross of brttles.
Then came tho question of selling"
it, for always before they had given.
It away freely. They hired a job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medi
cine, now called Lydia B. Pinkhatn'a
Vegetable Compound, and these were
distributed by the 1'intham sons la
Boston, New "York, and Brooklyn.
The wonderf nl curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used it
recommended it to others, and the do
mand gradually increased.
In 1877, by combinctlefforts the fam
ily had saved enough money to coo
menre netvsnaneradverti&incrand from
that time the growth and success of
tho enterprise were assured, until to
day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege
table Compound have become house
hold wonts everywhere, ana many
tons of roots and herbs are used annu
ally in its manufacture.
Lydia E. Pinkham herself did not
live to see tbe great success of this
work. She passt-d to her reward years
ago, but not till she had provided
