AS, TRYING to look like a martyr, we push a cushion into the small of the editorial back and, rather wanly, as we like to think, settle down to write, our sympathies surge about two persons in particular—Santa Claus and ourselves. It is a warm, muggy day.

THEY rushed her through a course at the nearest flying field. She failed when she tried for her license on account of poor landings, but she wasn't too bad once the machine was in the air. That was all Inkster demanded of her. Flying ability was the least of her requirements.

HELEN WILCOX
IT WAS the first Noel after the Great War in the half ruined village of Sainte Félice. Almost every Noel it snowed. But before, it had been a warm, friendly snow like the gentle fall of great soft feathers to make a white coverlet of purity for the earth, the better to usher in the Noel play which was a treasured tradition in the ancient village.

IT WAS the middle of May, 1930. The sub-Arctic was still in the grip of winter when two prospectors pitched camp on the shore of Echo Bay, one of the many indentations of the McTavish Arm which, in turn, is one of the enormous bays of Great Bear Lake.

MRS. BELDING looked up from her book and regarded the two men talking at the other end of the verandah. After a moment she sighed, slowly shook her grey, coifed head, and closed the book softly. Her reading pince-nez was placed carefully on the table at her side, and she rearranged the slim limbs outstretched on the green-white deck chair.

IMPORTANT private business connected with a wedding took me to New York about the time Canadiens hooked up with Pumas in their first argument of the season at Madison Square Garden. It was a morning wedding. By nightfall the happy couple were on their way to the coast, and I was lonesome.

W. A. IRWIN
IN THE midst of a world caught in the vortex of universal economic crisis, Canadians suddenly have become conscious of a new cloud in their financial sky. The name of this cloud is The Railway Problem. Its shadow, once a mere dot on the horizon of the country’s economic well-being, almost overnight, it seems, has assumed proportions that have given rise to a fever of questionings.

ALLO, Allo! Is that you, Kent Power?" The usually jovial and mellow voice of Sergeant Jules Papineau of the Montreal detective force came over the wire with a somewhat strained edge. "What’s on your mind, Pap?” the tall young man with the blonde, tousled head replied at his end.

MARY LOWREY ROSS
IN A motion picture shown a short time ago there was a husband who was dividing his attention between his beautiful wife and a fondness for whisky. Every little while he was revealed with the bosom of his dress shirt gaping and his hair in a bang over his forehead; which is the movies’ way of telling us that his manhood is now at its lowest ebb and it is time for some woman to take a hand.

A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
WITH four storm-tossed months of recess behind him, Mr. Bennett prepares for his third session as Prime Minister. Since prorogation last August there has been a procession of crises.

KEEP down the temperature of your cigarette. Cigarette temperature is important in cigarette enjoyment. Keep it down, and you will have a cooler smoke. Use Static Light instead of Dynamic light, that means, apply a match to your cigarette until it ignites before puffing.

THE CHRISTMAS DINNER

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
THE Christmas dinner follows the modera trend toward simplicity. No longer, even in the holiday season, do we provide long, ponderous meals to tax the patience and digestion of our guests. It must, though, be something of a feast; a little more lavish than an ordinary repast, a little more festive in decoration and garnishing.

Reflected Beauty
The decorative value of any room can be greatly enhanced by the strategic use of mirrors
[no value]
[no value]
F. L. DEN. SCOTT
MIRRORS, with lamps, books, flowers and fireplaces, are considered the “living” elements in the furnishing scheme. In every successful room there must be some of the vital elements, some of the things that change from day to day; growing plants or fresh blossoms, open fires and mirrors that reflect these things, or some pleasing scene.

A FEW years ago a gentleman and his wife, natives of Nova Scotia, were preparing to return home from England. The young English clerk in the office was evidently an ardent Imperialist. “What is your nationality?” he asked Mrs. Smith. "Canadian,” said Mrs. Smith.
