The following is I he article Miss Connolly wrote on her visit to the Coai (ialo section near Lethhrii!v,e. Residents of thai section will recognize the characters referred to: "I was especially interested in this farm wile, a .Mrs. I'-----. because I had been told she, was an ox-school t'veh-er. And 1 know that there is no class of women in tho world so full of the longing to farm as school-ieuchcr.-,. Thero is something in the confinement of the schoolroom which bivds this hunger for the world's "bi{; open � puces." I wondered how litis school-teacher liked her prairies, now thai she was on them. "We turned from the main road into a private onn and whirled up the latter to a very comfortable-looking, roomy, two-story house. I had nof seen a homier place in the Canadian West. Out in Ihc barnyard some fine young turkeys gobbled at tne, baby chicks running about, while a llUlr-yellow-linfred child in a pretty gingham frock played among them, shrieking. "It was Mr. P--'s mother who received mc-and oh, tho gracioiisiic.-iM Of theso prairie folk to the stranger! "I'll call my daughter-in-law." she fcmiled. "I'm only a visitor here."

Mrs. 1J- -wns coming in, with the fresh, vigorous greeting of a young woman of tho West. She had a fine,, strong face- the face of a thfnker. And her poise was that of one used to authority. "Vi'g call thiB Lyndale Farm," she replied, when I had told her my errant. I have wondered since why some of those busy women did not tell me politely that I was an intruder, with no right whatever to come and question 1liem. ' Non-s (lid so: and tho faces of all lit up with a;i eager smile when 1 asked them to toll the women "hack home" what farm life was like and What chances there were, for others. Wo raise wheat, alfalfa, oats, tim-ot'.ty and stock. Is that what you Vanted to know?" she was saying. I laughed. "No. Not exactly, I Want the story of your own experience hero. Was it a struggle?" "I'll be quite honest with you. You Want the truth, don't you? 1 see you do, or you'd have gone lo I lie real-eslate I'iiius for information. "To begin at. the beginning. Air. P- came out here in KH'.S from Illinois. Mis brother was up here, and he saw great, chances for my husband. They honght. between thorn, seven quarter sections of land and went into diversified farming. It would have paid thorn, had they not had five years of ilrought wilhont a break. "Yes, tiiis was irrigated land. Tt. is the. best, to have, of course. And yet our wate.r rights added to our expenses Ihoso dry yours. If it had not been for slock raising winters, we. would never have gotten ahead. "As it was, those years wore -fearfully hard. I came up (he year after my husbahil. 1 was a school-teacher in Illinois, and my limtband was a bank cashier. So we hud everything to learn. "It's been an uphill road. Hut gradually we have gotten ahead. My husband's .brother sold out his section and a. half to us, and now my husband has, all together, seven quarter sectionn. Most of our income sq fur hr.s had to go lo paying off our debts, which piled up fit the hard yearn, and we are only jusl beginning to brealbe easily.

HAMILTON Former Advertising Manager Wanatnaker's, Philadelphia J7IFTY years ago every store had a "barker" just * as every sideshow has now. He was not so loud, but he was equally insistent. He stood on the sidewalk in front of his store and urged you to come in. When you entered, he rang a bell. You were surrounded by highwaymen and there immediately began a system of brigandage which was not even surpassed by hold-up men on lonely roads. � The first business of these so-called salesmen was to find out how much money you had. Every ruse was resorted to to get you to open your wallet or your purse. The second object was to get as much of that money as possible and his value to his concern was measured entirely by you* loss. ,/  ' " ' - -- -< - . J A - This is not romance; it is history. Not the worst stores, tut many of the best stores did it. The only price on an article was the higjiest prjco you would pay. The law of Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware) was tbe ConwiWo* ial Law of the land. It was understood that you and the merchant yfpxi commercial enemies and that you were his legitimate prey, i0t v ' t ^ Such things as a definite price or the returnability of merchandise or a* guarantee or good faith,,would have been considered foolhardy. -i, Now, out of all this chicancery, this cross-roads bartering, this world-old hostility of buyer and seller, have coine the clean, wholesome,.trustworthy institutions of the present day. /; And the one great factor that has brought this change about is^-* Advertising. And the reason for thi:; is that a man is naturally far- more careful of .what he writes than of what he merely-says, t, Today you walk into a store with as much confidence as you would enter your own home. You feel that every possible safe-guard is thrown about you for your protection. The merchant, where he once was your commercial enemy, has become your business representative. Your pleasure is his command. He will do anything within reason to meet your smallest request. Even the manufacturers and big distributors have caught this feeling that they must represent you, or you will not patronize them. ......" This is the great thing that Advertising has done for trade. And the peculiar part of it is that you feel this safety, this reliability, this surety of fair play only toward those who advertise. rr*" v That is why the advertising columns of this paper should mean so much to you. That is why you should make this advertising part of your daily ft news. That is why you should begin to read it today, and continue to read it every day for everything you buy. ;
