Forget to Pay.
Patrons of Winchester barber shops
seem to hnve a iniinla for forgetting
to pay their tonsorinl bills. In many
cases it Is done unintentionally.
One evening, recently, a former Win
chester resident who now lives in Cali
fornia entered a barber shop for a
haircut and shave. He was in a hurry.
His business for the evening included
a lodge meeting and most important
Ct all, catching a train for his home.
Many of his old-time friends were In
the shop when he stepped from the
chair. Hi bade them all good-by and
started to leave the shop. He had not
yet paid his bill.
"Dtil you forget something?" the bar
ber asked as the customer was leav
ing the shop.
"Oh, yea. 1 beg your pardon." the
customer replied. "Good-by. good-by."
And the bill still remains unpaid.

In "B" the pastern goes to the other

MI NG RAPIDSTRIDES
Canada Improving in Every Way
The reports coming to hand every
day from all branches of Industry In
Canada speak highly of the construc
tive ability of that country.
Recently the managing* directors of
the Canadian Credit Men's Associa
tion gave out the statement that busi
ness in Western Canada was good. In
every branch it is better than in 1913,
and everyone will remember that in
that year business was excellent.
"The beauty of it is the way in
which payments are coming in^ Mer
chants all over the West are taking
their cash discounts. Such a transfor
mation I never saw.
From the records in the office I
knew it was getting better. We clear
here every retail merchant in the coun

therefore in the closest touch and have
intimate knowledge of the way trade
is going and how payments are being
made. Conditions at the present mo
ment are better than had dreamed it
was possible that they should be.
"The statements which we are re
ceiving with reference to the standing

have been behind for years and in the

everything, and taking their cash dis

they know what to do with.
"This is about the condition of trade,
and I am glad to say there is no exag
geration in what I have said. The
business of the prairie provinces is in
Crop reports are also good. From
all parts comes the word that the crop
conditions were never better, and the
situation at the time of writing is
that there will be fully as great a
yield as in 1915. when the average of
wheat over the entire country was up
wards of 30 bushels per acre. The
hareest therefore will be a heavy one
and, following the magnificent harvest
of last year, the farmers of Western
Canada will all be in splendid shape.
Old Indebtednesses, much of which
followed them from their old homes,
are being wiped out, Improvements are
now being planned, and additional
acres added to their present holdings.
During the past year there was a
large increase In the land sales both by
the Canadian Pacifie and Canadian
Northern land companies, as well as
by private individuals. A great many
of the purchases wore made by farm
ers who thus secured adjoining quar
ters or halves, the best evidence prob
ably that could be had of the value
of Western Canada land when those
who know the country best are adding
to their holdings. A number of out

Alleged hard times in Manitoba have
not dampened the ardor of motorists
or prospective ones. The automobile
license department reported a few
days since that there are 1,600 more

licenses issued this year was 10,400, as
against 8,800 last year. At an aver
age cost of $1,000 each the newly pur
chased cars represent a total outlay of
$1,600,000,'while the total number of
cars in the province are worth approx
imately $10,000,000. The new cars are
of modern types.

and along with this, the natural ten*,
ency of the allies to trade among them
selves, and perhaps special trading
privileges. Mr. Ilobins points out that
the greatest development In the United
States followed the costly and destruc
tive civil war.
Mr. Robins, in an address before the
Bondmen's Club of Chicago, expressed
the opinion of a far-thinking mind and
the review of an experience of the last
of his numerous trips through the Ca
nadian West. When he said he re
garded the spirit of the Canadian
people, as he found it, the most ad
mirable and encouraging feature of
the entire situation. They are facing
the sacrifices of war courageously and
with calm confidence as to the result,
and in similar spirit they face the eco
nomic future, confident, but expecting
to solve their problems only by dint of
hard and intelligent effort.
An important part cf Mr. Robins'
address, which invites earnest atten
tion, is that in which he refers to the
land situation, and when his remarks
are quoted they carry with them the
impression gained by one who has
given the question the careful thought
of a man experienced in economic ques
tions, and specially those relating to
soil and its production. He is quoted
"Agricultural Canada was never so
prosperous, and immigration of agri
cultural population both during and
after the war seems a logical expecta
tion, finding support in an increasing
immigration at present from the Unit
ed States, in spite of numerous ca
nards spread broadcast throughout the
United States to discourage emigration
to Canada. The landu f Western Can
ada, however, as long as they are as
at present the most advantageous for
the settler of any on the continent,
must continue to attract, despite mis
representation, and on the increase of
its agricultural and other primarily
productive population depends the eco
nomic future of Canada. All other
problems are secondary to this, and
the large interests of Canada, recog
nizing this fact, are preparing to se
cure and hold this population both dur
ing and after the war. They are con
tent to let city development and other
secondary phases and superstructure
follow in natural course. This recog
nition of the true basis of economic
development is an encouraging augurj
for the future."
"The war has brought the United
States and Canada nearer together
economically than ever before. The
total investment of United States capi
tal in Canada doubtless exceeds $1,000,.
000,000, of which $300,000,000 has been
invested since the war began. Except
for Great Britain, Canada is the Unit
ed States' best customer. Our exports
to all of South America in the last
three years were less than a third of
our exports to Canada In the same pe
riod, although Canada has been rigidlj
reducing her Imports since the war be
gan. Even Prance, a good customef
of the United States, bought $70,000,-
000 less than Canada during 1913.19K
1915. And yet Canada's purchasing
power is in the first stages of develop
ment only. It has been estimated that
the United States can support a popu
lation of 600,000,000. Using the same
basis of calculation in reference to nat
ural resoxirces, Canada can support a
population of 400,000,000.
"Canada is potentially the most pop
ulous, and, in primary production, at
least, the richest unit of the British
empire, and it behooves us in the Unit
ed States to know our Canada."
The social conditions throughout
Western Canada are everything that
could be desired. Schools have been
established in all districts where there
may be ten or twelve children of school
age, and these are largely maintained
by liberal government grants. A fund
for this purpose is raised from the
revenue derived from the sale of school
land, one-eighteenth of all lands being
set aside as school lands. All the
higher branches of education are cared
for, there being high schools at all
important centers, and colleges and
universities in the principal cities.
The different religious denomina
tions prevail, each having Its separate
church, and religious services are held
in every hamlet and village, and in
far-off settlements the pastor finds an
attentive congregation. The rural tele
phone is one of the great modern con
veniences that brings the farm home
nearer to the market.
It is not saying too nrach to state
that In matters of social importance,
in the most remote settlements they
carry with them the same influence as
is to be found In the most prosperous
farming districts of any of the states
of the Union.Advertisement.
