The Lonesome Factory on Hudson’s Bay

J. B. Tyrrell
James Grant
ALMOST any Hudson’s Bay post is a poor place to find company—unless it be the company of your own thoughts. But the Post at Fort Churchill is just a few degrees more unhappy, in this regard, than any other. Scattered over thousands of miles of Canadian wilderness lie these grey, weather-beaten houses, some more pretentious than others, where a lone man, with a white wife, perhaps, or native wife, carries on trade with the Indians in the territory round about.

Ella Middleton Tybour
MISS WETHERBY counted money in the Redemption Division of the Treasury Department. Moreover, she had counted it for twenty-five years, which is quite a slice out of one’s lifetime, taking; it all in all. She had spent those years in a swivel-chair in the basement of the Treasury building, and had worn holes in several cushions as the days came and went.

The Glory of the Cities
What a bit of grass, some trees, a flower and pool of clean water may mean to the most commercial town or city in Canada
[no value]
[no value]
Madge Macbeth
THE modern business man may tell you that the glory of the cities is the wreath of smoke that sways over the busiest of them, just touched on the under side by the steeples of industry—the tall chimnies. The long-haired idealist on the city council,—or if he is not on the city council he is Secretary of the Women’s Auxiliary of the leading church —will tell you that the glory of the cities, should be green grass and trees and running streams and fountains and free Wagnerian concerts.

The Automobile and its T emperaments

Douglas Hallam
MAN has created no more human thing than automobiles. These creations of rubber, canvas, wood, leather and steel are not mere machines, they have characters and souls. Who has not come across the bad character car! The automobile with a weak character and a low soul is a very bad automobile indeed.

THERE were bunches of crumpled pink roses about the room, and a pervading scent of citron hardly to be accounted for. The rugs were sparse on the carpet of sage green, with a nap so heavy that one had the feeling of treading on some especially exotic species of hot-house moss.

ONCE again the resourceful Liberals have been trying to aid the Conservative Party to destroy itself, by spreading stories of the dissensions within that party, and by going even so far as to announce that Mr. Borden had resigned from its leadership.

A Municipal Report
Fancy a novel about Chicago or Buffalo, let us say, or Nashville, Tennessee! There are just three big cities in the United States that are “story cities”—New York, of course, New Orleans, and, best of the lot, San Francisco.—Frank Norris.

O. Henry
EAST is East, and West is San Francisco, according to Californians. Californians are a race of people; they are not merely inhabitants of a State. They are the Southerners of the West. Now, Chicagoans are no less loyal to their city ; but when you ask them why, they stammer and speak of lake fish and the new Oddfellows’ Building.

The Man Who Wouldn’t Stay “Dead”—Earl Grey
Some facts and inferences about the GovernorGeneral who was supposed to be a figure-head, but who proved to be a man, very much alive
[no value]

Britton B. Cooke
THE function of a Canadian Governor General has become exceedingly difficult in the later years of Canadian History. When the Dominion was in its infancy the Office was more or less advisory—a medium for communication between the Colonial Office and Ottawa.

A Departure in Art Criticism

ONCE upon a time—this is an old story—a young newspaper man was sent to an Art exhibition in the City of Montreal, to write “a story.” In short, he was to criticize the exhibition. He knew as much about art as a painter knows about nursing over-heated bearings on a rotary converter.

'TWAS early in the bright and cool of the morning when we started for Eldorado, Jim and I. I had a letter from Locasto to Ribwood and Hoofman, the laymen, and I showed it to Jim. He frowned. “You don’t mean to say you’ve palled up with that devil,” he said.

Holland from an Angle

A. L. H.
ONE’S conception of Holland depends, very largely, upon what one is, and upon the angle from which one views it. The Germans are said to have designs upon it as a factor in their military ambitions. If therefore, one is German and of a war-like nature, one sees the strategical characteristics of the little Kingdom and nothing more.

Alan Sullivan
“A book of verses underneath the bough, A jug of wine—a loaf of bread—and Thou Beside me singing in the wilderness, Then wilderness were Paradise enow.” ’Twas thus wrote Omar Khayham, did he guess That this quaint vision of his happiness Should draw our souls to it’s simplicity, Should make us yearn for neither more nor less? That ever as the weary caravan Winds o’er the dry, the desert life of man, Trustful we say.

YOUNG Jenkins sat in the office and looked out past the tall buildings at the sky, arching above him like an inverted steel bowl studded with cold jewels. The rest of the staff had gone home. The caretaker was emptying the wastepaper baskets into a big sack.

James P. Haverson
We are the silly sisters You kiss and cast aside, Poor lights o’ love, good masters, To whom is love denied. From us in careless revel You seek from idle mirth, Poor daughters of derision You hold of little worth. In halls of empty laughter We hold our loves for hire With smiles of haggard beauty, Vain handmaids of desire.

OUR Canadian political system and the system in the United States have at least one thing in common, and that is the fact that in both countries the Party Machine is liable to obtain more or less control of the administration of the Government, and so thwart the theory of representative government.

CURRENT LITERATURE observes that no less than five different magazines have taken it upon themselves to proclaim, in trumpet tones, that Mormonism is once more a burning issue, and that the federal government will soon be compelled to face the problems raised by the revival of polygamy in Utah.

"MY friends, the world lies wide before you. North, south, east, west, the strange lands beckon and call. Can’t you hear them—the hansoms slurring through London mud, the roar of the boulevards, the chugging of the stern-wheel river boat, the shrill summons of the muezzin from his minaret, the tinkle of anklet, and the boom of temple bells?

MOST articles dealing with the various ways in which character is indicated are based on guess-work, and are unscientifically written. Charles Kassel, however, has written an article which appears in The Popular Science Monthly, and which, we believe, is worth reading.

The Most Unpopular Playwright

AMONG the giants of Scandinavian drama, says Current Literature, August Strindherg, their last survivor, is the most solitary of playwrights. Both Ibsen and Bjornson were brooding Norsemen; but while they lived Strindberg seemed less lonesome a figure. While he was not their friend, they at least were men of his own intellectual stature. Although Strindherg was born twenty years later than the other two dramatists, his most important plays date from the same period as theirs.

EVERYTHING is used in business enterprise. Art is employed to advertise shoe-polish; psychology in writing advertisements, and little graces even in collecting accounts. "Entertainment" is another "aid to business success" and in the following article which appeared in "System," much interesting comment is made on this subject.

If one were to form an opinion from the number of helpful, inspiring and informing articles one sees in the public press and magazines, the purpose of which is to increase our efficiency, he must believe that the entire American Nation is striving for such an end— And this is so.
