Mr. Higham Advice to Traders

Speaking on modern shop keeping recently Mr. C. F. Higham, the well-known expert on advertising, said the old cry about competition being the life of trade was groundless.

"Good services and proper advertising" he declared "are the things which make trade" You must run your shop with a definite idea. Then if your plans are properly conceived, you cannot fail.

Camera club - there was a good attendance of members at the club rooms on Wednesday evening when the prize winning slides in the recent Amateur Photographer slide competition were shown......Great interest was taken in the pictures of Herbert Felton, late of Worcester.

A True Canvassing Story

Sir, - ...On the outskirts of the city....A man and his wife, with their boy of eight and their girl of ten....reared a couple of bacon pigs which the pig butcher had killed. Our little eight year old reveled in the carnage.

On Friday, after tea, two recruiting canvassers called, and the girl, not liking what she heard began to cry.

"Oh they've come for papa! They'll take my dada!.... Papa will be killed!"

Our eight year old: "well, and what if he is killed? We shall have the old age pension and the pigs!"
