THOSE CAPRICIOUS and IRKSOME JUMBLES of UNEQUAL MONTHS

This is an excerpt from their 1912 advertisement. They has offices in New Westminster.

WHY SHOULD WE CONTINUE THOSE CAPRICIOUS and IRKSOME JUMBLES of UNEQUAL MONTHS and QUARTERS any LONGER?—when we can so easily (almost imperceptibly) glide out of them as the year 1916 expires— 5 years hence—and ever afterwards daily enjoy those great time recording facilities we can then derive by applying the perfectly equal and most useful permanent MONTH of 4 WEEKS to be quartered by the WEEK, now regulating all the Business and Social Arrangements of every Nation.
