Picked right, blended right and packed right. It brings the fragrance of an Eastern garden, to your table. O3R. Brigadier-General F. S. MEIGHEN C.P.R. New Director IT was Hie must ioglcal thing for the greatest t r a n s p o rt.ntion corporation In the to reach out and pie.k Frank Stephen off. the financial scupo. When the shareholders o the Canadian Pa- cific Railway Company, at its Teceat annual meeting, held in Montreal, Toted "Yea" to the addi- tion of this "coin- ing" young (Han to ItB Direc- torate, the busi- ness world tho wide world over nodded .its' "ap- proval.

Brigadier-General such Is his a picturesque entry into the larger field. Well has he served his bleeding country.. The best evidence of this could prob-. ably be obtained from the few surviving Germans who engaged the then Colonel Meighen'6 Fourteenth Battalion at St. Julian. Galled home to lend bis experienced advice to the Militia authorities of Canada, the honors of war gained only by duty well done have overtaken the young regimental commander. but military -prowess 13 not essential to the make'up "of tho Canadian Pacific Railway Director, and men do not graduate In the service of their country in an .Industrial way try -leading gallant Canadian soldiers to Tlclory In'Europe. In the veins of this man runs the blood of Mount Stephen. The first President of the Canadian Paciac Railway Company, Lord Mount Stephen was General Meigben's uncle. Robert father of the new Director, was a railway associated .Mount Stephen, and; himself a Director of the road. Here, then, is tho Meigben pedigree: It is piece off the C. P. R.'s family tree." Robert Melghen was a big man In his day and he left his Imprint on Oie country His C P R affiliations were extensive, and It Is appropriate that his ion should resume the connection direct One of the fathers achievements was me founding of the Lake of the Woods Milling Com pany and in more recent years Prank S Melghen has been widely known us its President. In addition to the largo interest held by the Robert Melghen estate in the groat railway company, this take of tho Woods Milling Company, one of the largest of Its kind in the world, has been for many years one of the biggest of the railway's customers Let no one imagine, however that this new member of a galaxy of Canada's captains of Industiy, Is without merit of his own, or that he Is riding Into the C. P. R. board room on family prestige. At the present lime he holds tho following Important offices President of the Lalte-Ot the Woods Milling Company, a Director of the Bank of Toronto, President of the New Brunswick Railway Company, a Director of the Canadian North-West IJimJ Company; President of the Company; a Director of the Paton Manufacturing Company. To figure thus proml ecntly in the business life of the Dominion Is tffl prove his great personal ability anil mental acumen. "Level headed' is the adjective that the big fcusmess men of Canada apply to Prank S Melghen While filling so large a place as this, General Melghen has still found to play, Throughout Eastern Canada he is noted as an expert exponent the hazardous game of pony polo, and many a careering battle has won by his own skill and daring He Is an enthusiastic sportsman in many directions, as is evident In his membership In the following clubs Tha Forest and Stream, tho Montreal Hunt, the Back River Polo, the Montreal Tockey. the Toronto Hunt, and others. General Meighen was horn at Montreal. December 24, 1869 He was educated at Montreal High School and graduated in Arts from McGlll Dulverelty to 1889 He began his business life In the steamship office at the Robert Rcford Company, later entering the service of the Lake of the Wrods Milling Company In their Montreal office. For many years he was Treasurer of the Company, succeeding to the Presidency on the death of "'Besides the clubs mentioned General Melghen Is a member of the St JanTw Mid University Clubs of Montreal, the York Club of Toronto; the Jailor Athenaeum, of London, England, and the Point Judith Club, of, Pier. publlc-sptrltedness Is indicated In the fact that Honorary Treasurer of the local commutes for the Quebec Ter- eeotenaiT Celehratton-ta 1108, and was one of the principal promote! s of the Typhoid Emergency Hospital.

First Canadian Division in- 'eluded Panincau, Uanscrcau, Hanger, I Barric, Quintal, Leprohon and -Hoy, all typical French-Canadian officers. No man has ever done more than Sir Sam Hughes to draw together and cement the bonds of friendship be- tween felie French and English-Cana- i dians. Shall his efforts, backed up by the best men of Canada, be check- mated by the little Canadian crew? At Valckrtier this year the best of i good fellowship existed between the French anc! English regiments, and Col. Huglu-s, the camp commandant, endeared himself to the oflicers and men by his treatment and impartial discipline.''

Merchants everywhere tell our 800 salesmen that business is booming. Farmers have had a record crop, at big .prices, with big demand at home and abroad. Stocks of manufactured material are short, and labor is in great demand, Exports largely exceed imports. Factories are busy, a great many working overtime. Morefreight cars are needed, and steamers are taxed to capacity. Canada has, in proportion to population, greater exportable surplus of wheat this year than any other country in the world. Millions of dollars are passing over the merchants' counters. The people who spend this money want the best service. They demand it in all kinds of stores, from the smallest to the largest. They get it in stores which use our up-to-date Cash Registers, which quicken service, stop mis- takes, satisfy customers, and increase profits. Over a million merchants have proved our Cash Registers to be a business necessity. Last month the N. C. R. in Can- add had the largest of any month in the past seventeen.
