James Grantham
MY uncle the night I was fired called me up on the telephone. “That you, William?” he demanded. “Yes.” “Got another job?” “No.” “How much money you got?” “What’s that?” “Get any money?” “Oh, I guess I won’t starve. How much have you got Uncle Henry?”

THE square white-walled chamber gleamed brilliantly under a flood of fight spilling down from a spangled ceiling. Opposite the visitors’ gallery, the seven seats of the Opposition, stood out like lonely palm trees in the midst of an oasis of yellowish linoleum.

BEAUTY, said the old proverb, lies in the eye of the beholder, but if the beholder is too busy to see it—this is the modern, Canadian completion of the proverb—that doesn’t say that the beauty is not there just the same. Beauty is that quality in any object which, through our faculties of perception, stimulates agreeable feelings in us.

LITTLE did it avail Jakie Feinberg that he sold more Tageblatts than any other boy in Seward Park, for the Semitic ancestry that determined the quality of his business ability had endowed him with an inordinate lust for gambling, which consumed all the profits of his newspaper vending.

The Ethics of Taxation

E. C. Drury
SINCE the days of Matthew the Publican, and long before, the tax-gatherer has been an important, if not a popular, personage in all civilized communities. Popular opinion of him may have somewhat improved since the days when “publicans and sinners” were included in our dark generalization, with the publican first, but it cannot yet be said that the tax-gatherer is regarded as a welcome visitor.

The Indian Is Not Dying Out

John MacCormac
“THE Indian problem? Yes, that will solve itself in a few years, you know. The Indian is dying out.” How many Canadians, one wonders, would so express themselves if called upon to go on record in regard to the present condition and future prospects of the first citizens of this North American continent?

AT the small way-station the sad-eyed man wearing the overcoat with the worn astrakhan collar sat on the large ironbound trunk. It was marked in fading letters, “Mammoth Folly and Fancy Aggregation.” “Speaking of the procession of the equinoxes and the tide in the affairs of men,” he said, “once I was lifted on the crest of the wave of opportunity, hung suspended amid the glittering froth of fortune, and then— Well, speaking of the way the cat jumps, the town was a one-night stand, though that hardly describes it either, for there was a palpitating doubt, almost amounting to certainty, that it might not stand for us—even for one night.

Can Canada Deliver the Goods?

James Cranmer
IF there is one thing more than another to which Canada can point as justification for heavy borrowing, it is the responsiveness of natural resources to the hand of labor. Whenever, therefore, any of her critics aid in drawing attention to the productive resources of the Dominion, and to the extent to which they are being exploited at the present time, and the rate at which actual production is increasing, sober Canadians ought to be grateful.

The One-Price System

Elbert Hubbard
THE greatest change in modern business came with the One-Price System. This has all been brought about since the Civil War. The old idea was for the seller to get as much as he possibly could for everything he sold. Short weight, short count and inferiority in quality were considered quite right and proper.

Simon MacBeth
AFTER all, farming is not a bit like golf. Of course the two are played in the open air, but that is about all they have in common. I make this explanation because it was while playing golf that I did most of my talking about going “back to the land.”

BETTY shook her head, once each way, for emphasis. “Not if I live for ever,” she said. “And ev-er,” she added, to make the matter clear. Pelleas and I looked at each other in distress. We are seventy years old. We fell in love fifty years ago, and since then we have done our best to bring about as many love-stories as possible in a willing world.

IN every field of activity we find young men in the most responsible positions—presidents of great institutions, heads of enormous trusts, managers of large department stores, presidents of great railroads, etc. We find young men who have just been graduated from college, occupying professor’s chairs; while others scarcely thirty years of age are presidents of colleges and universities.

IF the men of the money world were in the habit of talking freely they would at the present time have a good deal to say. It would be with the object of getting Canadians to move cautiously in business undertakings, unless they had the ready money to go on with.

Johnston is a job printer in a Canadian city. He has built up a large and fairly prosperous business. He is a man of unimpeachable character and a good master for whom to work. Having come to the conclusion that it would be worth his while to put his selling force on a more systematic basis, he decides to raise one of his city travellers to the position of sales manager, and in his place to employ a new man.

WHEN scientists told us that Montreal was built on a volcano ridge which some day might burst forth like St. Pierre or Vesuvius, we looked upon it as an absurd theory evolved in the study of some very learned, but very impractical professor.

In the course of an article under the above caption a writer in Munsey’s Magazine gives the views of Thomas A. Edison on the question. Most people, declares this writer, will agree that the ordinary motion picture has become well-nigh indispensable in education and science; in preserving the march of historic and significant event, and in advancing the whole social uplift.

THAT the border line between the “high” Protestant Church services and those of the Roman Catholic Church is becoming less and less distinct has for some time past been a matter of comment among those who deprecate this tendency. A well known Canadian Presbyterian has expressed the opinion that eventually the Protestant Church would revert to Rome.

THE DUKE OF ARGYLE contributes to the Windsor Magazine an interesting survey of the Scottish and Irish clans in the course of which some curious points are brought out.

WHEN we take up the Slav question we enter at once into the politics of Europe. “But” the world is asking “Why have the European powers the right to interefere in Balkan affairs?” Frederick Moore, writing in The National Geographic Magazine says that it is, in the first instance, the right of might, but most of the powers have also very definite reason or excuse.

AT THE outset of his career, palettes (not palates) were of paramount interest to Sir Joseph Lyons, he tells us in the April Strand Magazine. Sir Joseph is the founder of the large London catering firm, bearing his name, with a capital of eight and a half million dollars, and owning some two hundred and fifty restaurants, something after the style of Child’s on this continent, which feed about 2,000,000 of the inhabitants of London.

MEXICAN misfortunes and miseries are in the blood. Insurrections suppressed do not relieve them. Revolutions triumphant do not cure them. Nor military shifts from a Madero to a Huerta with cold-blooded murder of the best men in Mexico —perhaps on around the circle, says Munsey’s Magazine.
