In Canada to-day no man is looked upon as a fairer and truer friend of both capital and labor, with their frequently conflicting and clashing interests, than Professor Adam Shortt. Under the provisions of the Lemieux Act, and at the request of the government or large corporations, he has on several occasions been called upon to act in the capacity of arbitrator in the adjustment of industrial differences.

In peace, Love tunes the Shepherd’s reed ; In war, he mounts the warrior’s steed ; In halls, in gay attire is seen ; In hamlets, dances on the green. Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above ; For love is heaven and heaven is love.

A DRY goods business, with stocks aggregating in value nearly $200,000, in three of the live Western Ontario towns, and representing the best type of retail merchandizing in those three towns, is not big enough to engage the activities of G. B. Ryan, the executive head of the firm of G. B. Ryan & Co., of Guelph, Berlin and Owen Sound.

ONE of the most pleasing, resonant and captivating speakers in the Quebec Legislature is Hon. Adelard Turgeon, Minister of Lands and Forests. He is an orator of the front rank; his utterances always enlist rapt attention. Recently, Mr. Turgeon was appointed the representative from the Quebec Government on the Royal Commission, which has in charge the ter-centenary celebration of the founding of Quebec on the Plains of Abraham.

The nervons breakdown of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman from overwork has started an inquiry by the newspapers of London as to the number of hours people of various vocations and positions find it necessary to labor.

KIND men are always popular. Thoughtful men are always appreciated. Considerate men are always welcome. The man who has a kind word for everybody will always have a kind word from everybody. Even a dog knows who its friends are. We are justly afraid of the man who is cynical, snarling and sarcastic.

SPRINGDALE was a small but happy village. It had no electric cars or gas lamps and cabs were but dreams. It had but one street which entered the village and switched off into the open country. When, one day, Erastus Smith, by some strange accident or other, fell into Springdale, he liked the look of the place.

The Adoption of Automobiles in Business

[no value]
G. C. Keith
THE past year has seen the adoption of the automobile to commercial uses to a very large extent, and, no doubt, there will be a larger use of these trucks during the coming year. The only drawback to their general adoption is the poor roads usually found in Eastern Canada, which necessitate a great deal more repairs than are usually called for in the Western districts, and this, to a large extent, makes them a little more costly than they would be under more favorable conditions, but does not in any way detract from the fact that, when used in conjunction with teams, they have proved for uphill work and long distances, much superior to the former.

George R. Welton
I HAVE come to the conclusion after some years in the teaching profession and since in business, both as employed and employer, also from some study of the matter as written upon by others and much consultation with business men and practical educators, that the admitted fault of our modern educational system from the business man’s standpoint is not in the material used nor in the system employed, though here is where all reforms have begun and ended.

Henry Austin
That power that dazzles mortal eyes Is oft but perserverance in disguise. Continued effort of itself implies In spite of countless falls, the power to rise. ’Twixt failure and success, the point’s so fine, Men sometimes know not when they touch the line, Just when the pearl was waiting one more plunge, How many a struggler has thrown up the sponge.

The knife-hacked table was littered with a debris of proofs, clippings and discarded copy which no one offered to clear away.

AMABEL sat with her chin on her hand, wondering if it was a dream. Only last night it had all been so different. She had sat down to her lonely tea in her usual apathetic mood; she had read the newspaper, propped up against the teapot, from cover to cover; and then her glance had fallen on the agony column; and she had read, with overwhelming surprise, “If Amabel, daughter of the late Edmond Royce, of Saxhampton, will communicate with the undersigned, she may hear of something to her advantage.

"THE many fail, the one succeeds,” says Tennyson. Sir John Lubbock, in the “Pleasures of Life,” takes an opposite view. All succeed who deserve, he says, though not perhaps as they hoped. An honorable defeat is better than a mean victory, and no one is really the worse for being beaten unless he loses heart.

Orison Swett Marden
THE habit of holding the good will, kindly attitude of mind toward everybody has a powerful influence upon the character. It lifts the mind above petty jealousies and meannesses; it enriches and enlarges the whole life. Wherever we meet people, no matter if they are strangers, we feel a certain kinship with and friendliness for them, greater interest in them if we have formed the good will habit.

WHY do we so dread a book or a play “that ends badly” ? Are we really so genuinely sensitive that we cannot bear a touch of sadness? Are our feelings so tremendous that we are afraid of them? A hundred years ago, seventy-five, fifty even, nobody felt in the least ashamed to cry over a fine book, even if some one was looking! A great man like Lord Macaulay wept freely over “Clarissa Harlowe,” and did not care who knew it.

OF 1,643 prisoners in Canadian penal institutions, who have been released in the past eight years under the parole system, only thirty-three have gone back to a life of crime. This is, indeed, a very small percentage and has proved most conclusively the wisdom of instituting such a system.

Maude Benson
FOR months during the year 1810 the people of the Long Reach Settlement in Prince Edward County had been harassed by the ravages of a vicious wolf. Sheep, cattle and even dogs fell the prey of its rapacity. Some called it mad, and mad it must have been, for everything bitten by it, that succeeded in escaping with life, was seized with a sort of hydrophobia.

Just stand aside and watch yourself go by; Think of yourself as “ he,” instead of “ I.” Note, closely as in other men you note. The bag-kneed trousers and the seedy coat. Pick flaws; find fault; forget the man is you, And strive to make your estimate ring true.

AT his palatial home in South Bend, Indiana, there recently passed away the greatest manufacturer of plows that the world has ever known. His name was James Oliver, and he had reached the advanced age of 84 years. With no advantages in his youth, in the face of vicissitudes almost innumerable and difficulties which to another of weaker will and determination, would have proved insuperable, he rose to be one of the greatest captains of industry on the North American continent.

A man who helps us to a better understanding or to a fuller appreciation of our fellowmen, is certainly worthy of honor. He is justly entitled to a place in our affections for he is performing a noble work. Dr. Louis Frechette is a talented Canadian, who has taught us that there is much worth copying in the simple, honest, warm-hearted life, quaint ways, and historical customs of the French-Canadian habitant.

THE average railway station is not the most picturesque spot in the world. Beauty and business are seldom side partners, and a network of rails, long trains of freight cars, piles of lumber and coal, with unsightly sheds and not too aesthetically designed water tanks, combine to make a predominant air of something or other which is not exactly akin to culture and the love of the beautiful.

THE snatches of conversation that one hears in the highways and byways would seem to indicate that the workers of the city, particularly the young ones, are more interested in what they didn’t do than in what they did do. For instance, one frequently hears choice bits like this : “Yes, the boss he comes in to me and says: ‘Perkins, you enter up the cash items to-day, please.’

"One Who Knows"
RECENTLY a distinguished linguist made the statement that the average man could transact business or carry on the details of his occupation on a vocabulary of about five hundred words ; that on an average the reasonably well informed man did not make use of more than thirteen hundred words and only those who ascended to the higher flights of eloquence and expression required so many as three thousand.

Monsignor Satutto
THIS year, a most interesting anniversary for Canadian Catholics, will be celebrated, that of the foundation of the Canadian College in Rome, which is the most important institution of the Dominion, indeed, the only one, in the Eternal City, and of which there is no member of the clergy at home who has not very pleasant recollections, either as student or visitor.

Beatrix Fairfax
MEN are gossips. Did you know that? Half the scandals we hear of are hatched in men’s clubs. When you pass a men’s club and see half a dozen men gazing out of the windows and talking together, the chances are that they are talking about the scandalous manner in which Jones flirts with Smith’s wife, or some equally choice morsel of gossip.

THERE is a proprietor of a shop in New Haven, a man of most excitable temperament, who is forever scolding his clerks for their indifference in the matter of possible sales. One day. hearing a clerk say to a customer, "No, we have not had any for a long time," the proprietor, unable to countenance such an admission, began to work himself into the usual rage.
