Revolutionizing an Industry

G. B. VAN BLARICOM
BORN in a blacksmith shop in a small village in 1847, to-day the biggest industrial concern in Canada, with one-quarter of its annual profits given to educational, charitable and religious causes. Starting with a meagre investment: now capitalized at twelve million dollars, the greatest corporation in its line under the British flag, encircling the globe with warerooms, factories and representatives.

The famous French guillotine, or “the widow,” as it is familiarly referred to, has been re-erected at Bethune, in the North of France, and on the first day of its restoration as an instrument of the law four criminals were beheaded in the presence of 30,000 people.

Industrial Canada
IF a man had gold dollars to sell at fifty cents and did not let the people know anything about it, he would not sell any. You must tell the people what you have to sell, why they should purchase from you, and something of the value you offer them in return for their money.

ARCHIE McKISHNIE
HAVING re-lit his well-seasoned briar root, Jimmie Thrums threw his long legs across the library table, and with a sigh of content let his gaze stray down the long, closely written manuscript on his knees. Having finished the reading, he stroked his thin cheek thoughtfully, and let his mild blue eyes wander to the window and out across the snow-cloaked lawn.

MR. SIDNEY GREVILLE
SO numerous are the Queen’s public and private engagements that her Majesty finds it absolutely impossible to keep them all in person and has to attend many social functions and public ceremonies by deputy. Her Majesty’s deputy on all such occasions is her private secretary, Mr. Sidney Greville, who has acted as the Queen’s representative many hundreds of times since their Majesties came to the throne.

Success Magazine
Many a man fails because he does not dare to take risks, to take the initiative. When do you expect to do anything distinctive in life? When do you expect to get out of the ranks of mediocrity? The men who do original things are fearless. There is a lot of dare in their make-up, a great deal of boldness.

Motor-Cars for the Millions

JULIAN CHASE
A TOY for the wealthy? Not if you mean for only those who may be rated long in bank accounts. A plaything for the rich? This well-worn phrase is no longer applicable to the motor-car as a limiting characterization. A toy it may be, and in fact it is, for certain wealthy ones, and a plaything; but the motor-car to-day is far more— if is a very useful, economical, and soon-to-be-necessary type of vehicle for those who must get about, for the doctor, contractor, farmer, mail carrier, butcher, grocer and collector, for any one whose daily work is such that distance must be covered, for any one who now gets propelling power from horse-flesh.

ANON
IT was in a sordid, evil-smelling street in a Frankfort slum that the dazzling fortunes of the great house of Rothschild were cradled in the latter half of the eighteenth century. Picture a narrow lane, flanked on each side by towering rookeries of grimy bricks, in which the air was always fetid and stagnant, and into which the light of the sun rarely penetrated; and at each end of this lane, a barricade of iron chains beyond which none of its residents might pass under fear of death.

MANITOBA yields other harvests than those that are reaped from its fertile soil. The name and fame of Manitoba’s wheat have gone abroad to countries overseas, as well as throughout our own continent; but it is far from being generally known, even in our own continent, that Manitoba has important fisheries.

HENRY M. HYDE
WHEN “Coal Oil Johnny” bought all the champagne in New York and emptied it into a plunge bath, so that he might take a swim in the sparkling wine, he was by comparison a mean and penurious miser. The only real, genuine, open-handed and free-hearted spendthrift in the tides of time is the government of the United States.

LORD ROSEBERY
THRIFT is one of those virtues— there are, perhaps, more than we think—which it is much easier to preach about than to practise. To a Scotchman our reputation in the world being what it is, it would seem almost like carrying coals to Newcastle to advocate thrift in any shape or form.

FROM THE SPECTATOR
THE “skyscrapers” of New York have already begun to outlive a good deal of their disrepute, and indeed to command the credit that belongs to all strong and original building. Many of the lankest of these buildings are beyond a doubt basely and irretrievably utilitarian; but from the beginning there were architects who perceived that “sky-scrapers” were inevitable, and who set to work to design the most scientific, and architecturally the most noble, buildings which the circumstances permitted.

JOH. DALHOFF
A TRAVELER who visited Denmark wrote that one of the most interesting things he had observed was that even the pigsties on the farms were provided with electric light. Although that is not the rule, yet it is the skilful management of the small farms and the ability and training of the farmers which have built up the reputation of Danish agriculture.

THRILLING experiences?” repeated Leo Stevens. “Oh, sure! You get them in ballooning, naturally. In a way it’s like leaving suddenly for a new world and getting there in a few minutes—a strange land of wonderful sights and sensations, great air currents, clouds, rainbows, snow and rain factories, cyclones—yes, don’t forget cyclones.

Lose this day loitering, ’twill be the same story To-morrow, and the next more dilatory; True indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost, lamenting over days. Are you in earnest? Seize the very minute; What you can do, or think you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

The day before his execution his two sisters and some other relatives, who had worked very hard for his release, called to say “Good-by” to the prisoner, and at their departure he said, “I will walk to the chair with a smile on my face, and the smile will be for you.”

THE recent incursion of the Guggenheims into Cariboo, so long famous for its gold placers has awakened a new interest in that romantic district among the people of the United States. The real romance of old Cariboo, however, centres round about the story of a miner who made and lost millions, and whose grave to-day marks the spot where fortune beckoned and bereft, all within a quarter of a century.

If you’re on to the game and you’re wise to the rules, Keep playing. Buck through the centre and give it a ram, Smash on and crash on, you'll squirm through the jam. If their trick is a flim, let your trick be a flam; Don’t welch just because you’ve received one hard slam.

THE world shrinks, and now there are few parts of the globe which have not been traversed. I say purposely traversed, for many parts traversed have not been explored. A race across Africa, from Paris to Pekin on a motor car, or what has been aptly called the “boyish Pole hunt," can now no longer be regarded as serious exploration.

IT is probable that there was never a time when there was not an effort on the part of some especially energetic individuals to bring about an improvement in existing methods, but with the advent of the steam engine as an active factor in human affairs, this effort for improvement has become more marked, with an intensity which has been steadily growing, down to the present time, so far as relates to increased efficiency of machines.

PERHAPS you have heard of Hugh Chalmers. He is the man who received $72,000 a year when working for John H. Patterson, president of the National Cash Register Company. Of course, Chalmers was pathetically underpaid, but even so, $72,000 a year is a very exceptional salary, and a man who can command it, and earn it, as Chalmers did, deserves unusual attention, especially when that man is only 32 years old.

THIS is a poor story, for it has no plot, and all stories written in America are supposed to have a plot. Nothing else matters. This story has a girl and a man and a chief event. Of these the chief event happened only in the ordinary course of things, and if the girl had not had one straight, white streak in her internal construction, probably it would not have affected her in the proper way, and there would have been no excuse for writing this at all.

THE age in which we live owes much to many inventions and discoveries, but it is doubtful if the business and educational world is indebted to any science more than to phonography, or shorthand as we call it in this busy, hustling day. There are many systems extant, but that of Sir Isaac Pitman is the most widely used throughout the English-speaking centres.

One of the chief difficulties among engravers has been to turn out line cuts and half-tones that will print clear and clean from first to last of a long run. without the constant attention of the pressman. If etched too shallow the cuts "fill" and print up dirty, while the effort to make a deep cut by the old tub-etched process results in an "undercut” dot or line which breaks down and completely spoils the work.
