DURING the last two or three years there has been developed in certain localities in the United States a new idea in the building of apartments that, as a marked departure from the old-style apartment house, seems to be, for several reasons, particularly commendable.

CANADA’S existing House of Commons is necessarily short-lived. It does not represent the provinces according to the census of June, 1911. A redistribution of Representation Act allotting the West its due of largely increased representation cannot be delayed beyond the next session of parliament.

ELLA WHEELER WILCOX
The Truth Teller lifts the curtain And shows us the people’s plight; And everything seems uncertain, And nothing at all looks right. Yet out of the blackness groping, My heart finds a world in bloom; For it somehow is fashioned for hoping, And it cannot live in the gloom.

ON the balcony of the Trinacria Hotel in Messina a young American tourist sat finishing what had been a very welcome luncheon. Beneath him lay the noisy, populous city, and farther out around its coast spread the divine sea. The flies took possession of his piled plate of figs and dates.

THE name of the Royal North-West Mounted Police—those hardy riders in red—is well known to everyone, but there exists in Eastern Canada a corresponding body of men, whose work it is to patrol the vast muskeg forests that extend from the border line far into the Dominion of Canada, and regarding whose existence little seems to be known beyond their own country.

MRS. GASSAWAY was mixing batter for a cake in a yellow earthenware bowl on the kitchen table. She was a tall, angular woman, slightly bent in at the waist, like a wasp. Her faded yellow hair was tied at the nape of her neck with a butterfly bow of black silk, much ironed.

OF course, when you see the nasty, wet, hoppy, jumpy things, you can’t think how people can do it—especially if you are a girl, with nice frou-frou skirts to gather up to the tune of that adorable little scream you fetch the boys with. “You horrid creature,” I fancy I hear our womenfolk say, “You’re never going to write an article about that.

O. Henry
A STORY with a moral appended is like the bill of a mosquito. It bores you, and then injects a stinging drop to irritate your conscience. Therefore let us have the moral first and be done with it. All is not gold that glitters, but it is a wise child that keeps the stopper in his bottle of testing acid.

Canada a Land of Opportunities
WITH PROPER INVESTIGATION INVESTORS MAY MAKE SAFE AND PROFITABLE USE OF CAPITAL IN MANY LINES IN THIS COUNTRY DURING PERIOD OF EXPANSION
[no value]
[no value]
Frank J. Drake
CANADA offers to the investor more opportunities than perhaps any other country in the world. As a rapidly expanding and fast growing nation it is still reliant upon outside capital for the uninterrupted continuation of her growth, but need have little fear that the interest of capital will wane in the face of such opportunities as the Dominion offers.

THE evening of June 18th, 1822 was exceedingly warm, so warm indeed that the group of men sitting around the goodly and generous table of D’Arcy Boulton at his hospitable Toronto home were fain to rest well back in the comfortable chairs and use their soft silk kerchiefs freely upon the face.

[no value]
Frank Yeigh
ON November 16, 1885, twenty-seven years ago, Louis David Riel was executed at Regina. With his death there passed away a strange character who for a few troublous years played a part in the drama of the West. In the storm and stress period that marked the transition of the Great Lone Land from a Hudson’s Bay Company Preserve to a trio of thriving provinces; in the period represented by the transfer of the Indian from an untrammelled roamer of the plains to a Reserve Child of the Government, Riel Hits across the stage like a meteor, creating unrest and breeding discontent alike in tepee and cabin and pioneer settlement.

THE people of the United States spend approximately fifteen million dollars a year to see baseball games. The total number of persons registered at all professional ball games during a season reaches fifty millions. So rapid has been the growth of baseball enthusiasm that—so we are told by Edward Mott Woolley—owners of baseball teams predict the time when the aggregate of baseball patronage, including major and minor leagues, will be three hundred millions.

THAT the working capacity of the average man is increased by a certain amount of off-time, rightly spent, is no longer challenged. The problem facing wide-awake organizations is to induce him to make the most of his opportunity and to turn the period of relaxation to the profit of both employer and employe.

MR. H. H. SUPLEE writes in Cassier’s on the replacement of the man by the machine.

In spite of the fear that the labor so displaced would remain unemployed, the opportunities for employment have been increased and not diminished.

IS THERE ANY REASON for our methods of eating? Instead of having a stereotyped dinner, with courses of the kind and in order sanctified by custom, is it not just as well to sit on a log and eat sandwiches? Picnickers think it is—once in a while, at least, but Dr. R. S. Levenson, writing in The California Medical and Surgical Review, tells us that they are wrong.
