During this history-making period of war, bus
iness is apt to be more or less dislocated in spots and
it behooves every live merchant and dealer to get his
house in order.
"Deadwood" has no place in business in these
stirring times. The mark of the live merchant or
the live dealer is indelibly expressed in his adver
vertising. Thrift and economy is the order of the
dayj but thrift and economy that curtails efficiency
will not help business. To cut advertising space is
to curtail efficiency, which means, sooner or later,
the falling into the "deadwood" class of the mer
chant or dealer who follows such false economy.
The effectiveness of liberal advertising is not
doubted; The effectiveness of liberal advertising in
The Caledonian is proven by direct and indirect re
sults coming each day to the live merchants and
dealers who arc using liberal space.

While there are very few specific

of ferae naturae it is interesting to
know that it; the ancient law the cat
occupied a very different position. .r

Ancient Britons," says . Blackstone,
"cats wcr3 looked upon as creatures
of instrinsic value, and the killing or
stealing of one was a grievous crime,-!
