Canadians Must Learn to Think in Millions !
IN THE DEVELOPING AND PEOPLING OF HALF A CONTINENT, THE DOMINION IS CONFRONTED WITH RESPONSIBILITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES AS GREAT AS HAVE EVER BEEN FACED BY ANY NATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD

J. Kerr Abbott
THE Dominion Minister of Finance has obtained authority to spend over $200,000,000 this year. Two hundred millions! The mere suggestion of such an appropriation fifteen years ago would have made people gasp. Away back in the early ’seventies, when the national outlay was under thirty millions, many of those who gave serious thought to such things could see nothing but national bankruptcy ahead as a result of the scale of expenditure reached then.

The bravest battle that ever was fought! Shall I tell you where and when? On the map of the world you will find it not'Twas fought by the mothers of men. Nay, not with the cannon or battle shot, With the sword or noble pen; Nay, not with eloquent words or thought From the mouths of wonderful men!

AN American friend of mine who bought an old manor-house in Warwickshire desired to put in a new garden door in one of the ground floor rooms. “I dessay I could do it for yer if yer reaaly want to ’ave it,” said the local builder after examining the spot and taking measurements, “but it’ll be more of a passage-like than a hordinary doorway . . .

Nothing will take the heart out of a worker so quickly as discouragement. It is easy to push on when hope is bright, when prospects are good, but it is a rare character who can do good work, keep up his enthusiasm and courage when he sees no hope or encouragement.

The Loafing Habit

One of the most fatal habits is that of taking things easy, the habit of loafing, of killing time, of sitting around and dreading one’s task. The way to rob a nettle of its sting is to grasp it quickly, vigorously, not to fool with it. Many people are like this when they play with a spoonful of medicine because they dread to swallow the bitter disagreeable remedy.

James P. Haverson
“THERE’S one thing a guy’s got to have to work the fall fairs, and that is nerve. If he’s got that he don’t need much else.” This tabloid wisdom was handed out late one night, or to be accurate, early one morning, by my friend the ex-reporter, ex-advertising man, ex-mail order merchant and exmostly anything else to which a man could turn his hand or fertile brain by way of easing a living out of an ironfisted and stony-hearted world.

Did you ever realize that the finest characters in the world have been trained under the most exacting, the most exasperating, the most unkindly conditions. Just as the fire consumes all the dross, everything but the pure gold, so hardships, misfortunes, sorrows and disasters clarify and purify character.

THE International Boundary Surveys! How little the words mean to most Canadians—yes, even to those of us who credit ourselves with a patriotic and consistent interest in the affairs of our native land. Now and then our eye is caught and held for a moment by some brief journalistic notice.

IF YOU are a philosopher you can do this thing: you can go to the top of a high building, look down upon your fellow-men 300 feet below, and despise them as insects. Like the irresponsible black waterbugs on summer ponds, they crawl and circle and hustle about idiotically without aim or purpose.

SINCE the days when Jacques Cartier explored “the countries of Canada and Hochelaga, which form the end of Asia towards the west,” Canada has been known as the home of the canoe, but today it might almost as adequately be termed the home of the gasolene boat.

Do you ever realize that people who know you are constantly sizing you up, that when you meet them you really step upon the scale of their judgment and are weighed and measured by them on some sort of an imaginary scale? For example, people who know you may estimate your industry as a hundred, but your rough uncouth manner ten or fifteen.

He had been made painfully cognizant of the fact on numerous occasions, when sundry stories in the course of the night’s news went wide of him, which he would have got had his paper and the heads of the blue-coated minions been on visiting terms.

THE results of medical inspection of schools vary. Results must vary where so many people are concerned, because each must act well his part to achieve the success of the whole. Anybody can spoil medical inspection of schools. The school trustee may declare it “a fad,” and refuse to have it at all.

Charles L. Barker
CIVIC PUBLICITY has come to be a recognized factor in the growth and expansion of urban centres of population from one end of Canada to the other. It is an instant indication of the progressive spirit when any city is able to tell the visitor and the outside world that it has a publicity commissioner, an industrial agent or a press service bureau.

The Pulling Force in Business
THE WAY TO GET BUSINESS IS TO GO AFTER IT—THAT IS THE WORK OF THE SALES DEPARTMENT—THE MODERN METHOD MEANS SUCCESS

Walter H. Cottingham
THE way to get business is to go after it. To go after it is the work of the sales department, and if properly organized and efficiently managed, they will get it. Selling is the great thing in almost every business. Getting rid of the product in volume at a profit is the object, and at the same time the test, of a successful business man or a successful business organization.

The worst investment that one can make is that which tends to cheapen life. No man can rise higher than his estimate of himself. He will never pass for more than the value he places upon himself. If he regards himself as a cheap man—and he does when he seeks low associates, when he loses his pride in his standing in the community-—he is deteriorating.

The New York State Commission on Employers' Liability and Unemployment, he tells us, two years ago made a careful investigation of conditions and upon a broad basis of fact framed its conclusions, the chief of which is that “unemployment is a permanent feature of modern industrial life everywhere.

THE deterioration of the personnel on board her trading-ships threatens England’s supremacy on the sea, says Mr. Spencer Campbell in The Fortnightly Review. Most of the crews in such ships are aliens, and not in sympathy with the British Empire, and on some occasions these crews have even manifested a hostile spirit.
