"It overwhelms one to re- ic.t on what your people out here aye he remarked. "Your pa- riotism is one hundred per cent, pure nd that is tho highest tribute that I an pay." Delighted by the Outlook Mr. Willis is making his annual tour f his 'company's agencies throughout hu'Dominion, and he reports that] u'siness is highly satisfactory. Accord- ig to the present outlook, the record f the banner year, 1913. will be equal- ed if not surpassed by the AVillis corn- any. Mr. Willis admitted frankly hat he was astonished by the growth f the demand for the product of the Villis factories. I do not wish to ap- jear to be boasting, he said, "but all he letters 1 am receiving from the lead office and my personal expcri- jnces reveal that "cpllectiotis and new justness are highly satisfactory and vhat is more, they are improving. Proofs of -Popularity As an indication of the development and lively demand for the Willis in- truments. Mr. Willis stated that he ,iad personally taken orders from Port Arthur to Victoria for 30 carioads of lianos, about GOO in all. Despite tills great, demand, the scarcity of and the increasing cost of raw materials, there had been no increase iu the retail price of the Willis piano, uor would there be this year However, Mr. Willis intimated that If conditions respecting labor and materials costs grew more acute, high- er retail prices would be necessary. 100 Staff Members Enlist One hundred members of the factory and office staffs In Montreal had join- ed tho colors, and men had joined in goodly proportion from the branches, and it was liurd 10 fill their places. Wages had gone UN and the cost of materials, the bulk of which have to be imported, has mounted high. Some of the supply houses had urg- ed the Willis company to use compo- sitions and SiibStiiutos in place of ebony, ivory, brass and copper, but this had not been done. In fact, Jlr. Willis stated emphatically that It would not ho done and that he would prefer to close his factory rather than reduce the finality of the instruments which it was producing. The reputa- tion of the Willis piano had been built on tho good workmanship and sound materials which went into them and this reputation would be sustained no matter what the cost might be. In the meantime, there are enough sup- plies on hand to carry the factory along until after New Year's. Cheerful Over Outlook Mr. Willis was optimistic over the outlook. The company's factory, which occupies a silo of five acres in Mont- real, has a capacity of pianos a year and it is hoped that its output this year will be fully Some of these pianos will go to Australia and New Zealand for a healthy trade is being developed with the Antipodes which formerly purchased a large number of cheap Gorman instruments. One of the signs of the times was the brisk demand at the Toronto fair for the Willis piano. There was a big exhibit of the company's product there but It had been sold twice over. An- other gratifying tribute to the Willis instrument was the sale of one to Sir Wilfrid Laurier last Christmas. A Dominion Tour Jlr. Willis started on Ills Dominion tour on June beginning in the Mari- time provinces and working west. Down by the Atlantic he found crops excellent, Ihe potato and hay yield being especially heavy. In Ontario and Quebec conditions were not so good. Ontario would have a bad year agri- THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE DOMINION OF CANADA WAR LOAN Five per uc-nt Bonds maturing 1931.

YIELD IS LIKELY TO PROVE JUST AS GOOD AS 1915 CROP (From Our Own 'Correspondent; Nobleford, Sept. frost of last night which was pretty 'heavy in this district, did hot do the damage that was expected. This morning most of the farmers had on a smile that would not come off; It was very for- tunate that nearly all the grain hail been cut before tlie frost came. To make headway in cutting, a lot of binders were naming oil Sunday, ami this, together with working late .at light, has made a big hole in getting in the harvest. -There has been uo news of threshing from any of our points yet, but when they do come H will surely be a surprise for many. Most people estimate that the yield culturally but this would be largely offset by the Industrial activity. In southern Manitoba, the crops were poor although, there was an occasional spot where there was a good yield. In northern Manitoba conditions were better and the same held good in Sas- katchewan and in Alberta. There were light yields in the Peace River and Grande Prairie districts, but around Edmonton and elsewhere throughout the province the crop was will equal that of last year. If it docs and with the price of wheat where it is, there will be uo holding the farm- ers of this district. From being a mil- lionaire town we will become a town of millionaires. All the cutting will be finished by the end of the week and then for the threshing. Work on the annex to the C. S. Noble's elevator is going on apace and the job will soon be finished. The lum- ber for the Farmer's elevator has also arrived and building on this will soon commence. We will then have four large elevators and an annex to one. The new storage house for coal for the Farmer's elevator has just been finish- ed. We are 'getting on. The two storey house that is being erected for J. H.

Todd, the Man- chester expert, ia discussing the Lan- cashire cotton trade'crisis, predicts nn ohoan .'cotton this season. In reply to a question as to whether the pres- ent high prices would he said: "It depends, in the first place, on how badly the American crop turns out, and that, if .we could only, get at the fact's, is .fairly well settles; now, for the crop is made long ere. this. The only factor that remains in the uncertain future is the date of the first killing frost. We shall be lucky, indeed, if we get a crop now, and anything less puts us in danger of a very serious shortage be- fore the present season is out.
