Let The Homes of Reflect The a CANADIANS .have every reason to feel optimistic, courageous and self-relianf to-day look the jfoture with caimnespj optimism and work energetically, to live happily and to enjotj the refinements, comforts and home-lire or a well and prosperous nation. v As a Toronto "Globe" editorial so tmly "In the topsy-turvey World of naOe a better outlook, than of which is based firmly the fertility her bound-' less fields." v. v.ni Greater Interest One most impressiye of the progressiye and prosperous condition of the nation is the great interest that is developing in the beautifying and improving of oar Homes. care and imorc tkou'gtit are wteing given to tKe furnishings. Greater consideration is sHown for teauty and harmony.

The Influence of Furniture in the Home Beautiful furniture brings an atmosphere of cheerfulness and brightness into evenj room. It delights the eye. It gives comfort and rest loathe body. It brings contentment to the mind and has a refinirig influence on character. It gladdens the heart. .It is the pride of the owner. A beautiful libraru table or a luxurious chair costs no more than a tailor-made suit'! A Cheslerfield no move than a set of furs. Three or four suites of elegant fumilure are obtainable for price'of an ordinory motor Other things-last but a rew m'o'nfhs or a few brief years, whereas good furniture lasts more than a life-time. During ihe last decade Ihere has been a wonderful change and improvement in the appearance of furniture. Modem furniture designers have' received their inspir- ations from the "Period Designs" of the old masters, but have, not copied their work, because some" of the old masterpieces were either too frail or top cumbersome for 'utility. V Modern Designs for Average Homes Whilcl .the average, might not care to furnish iKeir homes'with the ddgmal work of the old masters, the modem reproductions of them, as. produced by Canadian furniture craftsmen, ideally meet the present-day demands for furniture that combines art and beauty with comfort and utility. Modem Canadian furniture is noted for ihe excellence and soundness of its construction as well as iU artistic appearance. There are no more skilled craftsmen oper- ating machines, no more dextrous, carvers of patterns that enrich the furniture, no finer cabinet makers, no more careful polishers, stainers and finishers, no better' upholsierers, than are working to-day in Canadian factories. Moderately Priced Suites and Pieces And this beautiful, modern, well-made Canadian furniture is obtained in moderafely priced aefs and individual pieces, as well as in the more elaborate and expensive suites. From the cradle- to old age, from the cottage to ihe mansion, there is Canadian-made furniture suitable for every purpose and every pocket-book. The individual earnings'of Canadians are greater than- those of almost any other race, We living in pros- perous times, and'in a country with a glorious future. The new era commencing with the close of the war is proving to be the most progressive and prosperous in the history of the Dominion, and Canadians can well afTord to brighten up (heir homes with' betier furniture.
