description July and August of 1917 must have been the summer of our discontent. The world was at war. All Canadians were mourning the losses at Vimy Ridge, while riots over conscription flared at home. The price of a good suit had soared to $14.95, and income tax was introduced for the first time, as a temporary war measure (one rate for all, 4%). Relief could be found in the front pages of the newspapers — but in the advertisements, not in the news: Fruit-a-tives, for those run down and tired; Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for those ailments from which women alone suffer; or Beecham's Pills, to keep the organs in harmony.
