IN the December number Mr. Editor explained why he and the proprietor, Colonel MacLean, who “has' always held anti-reciprocity, high protection views,” afford space each month to disquisition by the present writer, who favors “free trade and direct taxation” as the ideal policy for Canada and every other country.

It seems no job is too hard for the Chicago house-mover. If the owner of a building wants it removed or raised and can pay the bill, the work will be done, no matter how large the building or how much stone and iron is used in its composition. A twelve-flat building with a front of nearly one hundred feet was raised recently so that four stores could be constructed under the flats.

THE Position of Robert McLoren’s glasses told that he was unusually perturbed about something. They rested perilously near the tip of his nose, and to be of any use to him he had to throw back his head until he presented a broad expanse of neck and chin.

IS THERE some virtue in lung troubles? To most people the question will appear almost absurd. All they know about pulmonary diseases has mighty little virtue in it. But that is merely one side of the picture, and it is the darker side at that.

Agitation has been raised against a scheme of lion hunting in London, through the papers, due to the fact that an erroneous report was circulated that there was going to be a “shooting of lions in London.” whereas, as a matter of fact, it is not “shooting of lions” but hunting and capturing lions in London that is intended.

IT’S not much of a note book. The corners are rubbed, from much contact with boot heels, umbrella ribs and other hard angles in the crowded confines of a steamer trunk. The elastic band is slack with old age and bulky enclosures, such as photos, guide books and letters of credit or travellers’ cheques.

THE popular idea that kings live their lives apart, and know little or nothing about what is going on in the outside and workday world, may have had some foundation in fact in the old days. Speaking generally, it has absolutely none now. The leading monarchs of Europe are all careful readers of the daily press, through which they keep in touch with conditions throughout the world.

IT was early spring when I took up my quarters in the Slatewater district, and the many lakes and creeks that intercept the country like a great network were still at winter level. Dave Sharman’s ranch had just been put up for sale, and I bought it at a mere song, considering the price of apple grounds about there, and on the whole was thoroughly well pleased with myself.

THE last good-byes are over, the huge hawsers have been cast off, the steamers sail proudly down the harbor, while women standing on the docks gaze wistfully after them. When these same vessels come back to port there will be more widows and orphans in Newfoundland, for they have started on a quest that is beset with the greatest danger.

SMOKE’S new situation at Snass’s fire was embarrassing. He saw more of Labiskwee than ever. In its sweetness and innocence, the frankness of her love was terrible. Her glances were love glances ; every look was a caress. A score of times he nerved himself to tell her of Joy Gastell, and a score of times he discovered that he was a coward.

IT IS ONE of the hallucinations of the human mind to imagine that the other fellow always has I he easier job. The tendency to magnify the burden of one’s own tasks is deep-seated. That is why you will find a divergency of opinion as to whose share in the work of building such a railway as the National Transcontinental has been the most onerous.

ONE fine Saturday afternoon back in the “eighties” when Jimmy Jones was acting as catcher for the east-side team in a corner-lot baseball match he got a “paster” with the full strength of a batter’s swing on the bridge of the nose. Naturally Jimmy’s nasal organ, in spite of somewhat strenuous effort on the part of the family doctor, was seriously flattened and his former very pleasing facial contour was altered almost beyond recognition.

THE doorbell rang just as James, butler to the Sinders family, was in the midst of a graphic account of how Miss Birdie Sinders had managed to overturn a plate full of soup into her young man’s lap the evening before. He had reached the most dramatic part of his story, there was a broad grin upon the faces of all his hearers and James was too much of an artist to stop upon, the very brink of a climax.

THE future of the Right Honorable David Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer and mouthpiece of the democracy in the British House of Commons, is still an enigma to his friends and his foes.

He had just returned from a neighbor’s house, where there were women and children, and shouts of youthful joviality, and snatches of music; and the bungalow on the hill was doubly empty, doubly silent, in comparison.

IT is quite the habit of humanity to berate and disparage any man who gets ahead of the procession. The first man in history to introduce factory betterments was Robert Owen; then came Lever Brothers, England, and Krupp in Germany; but all the time we have had factory towns growing up all over the world, where there were long lines of dingy tenements, all alike with squalid surroundings, unpaved streets, homes guiltless of paint, and everything of a dull, dead, monotonous sort and kind, making mental evolution on the part of workers a barren ideality.

The team was got up by the late Colonel Skinner, of Hamilton, who raised a fund to defray the expenses of twenty men and the members of the team were selected at a competition held in Hamilton.
