IN SCOTLAND and in the north of England, First-Footing is still an important ceremony in the welcoming of the New Year. According to the folk lore of those parts, the first person who crosses the threshold of a dwelling after midnight on New Year's Eve is the harbinger of what is to follow during the ensuing twelve months.

CAROLINE JOHNSON glanced at the office clock. It was ten minutes to twelve. She surreptitiously kicked off her comfortable old shoes and inserted her plump feet into smart, black kid slippers, size seven and a half. She regarded them critically, her fair head on one side.

THE captain said, (with the Roumanian wallowing unpleasantly, engines stopped, upon a deep-sea swell), that he would give them five minutes to make up their minds. Anyone who went ashore would have to stay ashore. The doctor was coming down to give pratique and that would keep the ship a darn sight longer than he wanted anyhow—with ugly weather about, and no proper holding-ground—

YPRES! Stricken Ypres! A ghoulish welter of ruins, a tragedy with the remnants of the Cloth Hall as its centre. Ypres and the Menin Gate, and the moat, and the ramparts—shellpounded, sheltering hundreds of soldiers in dug-outs and tunnels.

HO!” The dogs stopped instantly at the shouted command, and the man rose from the toboggan to stretch his legs. "Get a little rest, you bushwhackers, so we can come sailing up to the Post in style.” Sliver, the lead dog, squatted in his traces and turned to watch his master, as a good lead dog should.

MY WIFE appointed me chief trunk packer to the family. She did this shortly after we were married. She said her father was wonderful with trunks and a great joy to her mother; then she looked at me. You know how young wives can look at their husbands.

FREDERICK EDWARDS
MAGNATES of professional hockey are of three kinds—those who are in the game for fun, those who are there for money, and some who are urged equally by both motives. They might be called playboys, professionals, and playboy-professionals. The last named are the happiest and the most successful.

LESLIE MCFARLANE
ALTHOUGH luck defies definition, its influence on the destinies of men has never been denied. Good luck has hoisted men of moderate abilities to fame and fortune, while the lack of it has been blamed for the obscurity of many highly gifted people.

W. A. IRWIN
IN THE first article of this series an attempt was made to outline the railway problem from the point of view of the gentleman who sits in the counting-house and interprets events in terms of money values. Those who followed the evidence will recall that it dealt largely with the financial dilemma resulting from the difficulty of meeting rising railway debt charges out of declining railway income.

IT HAS probably been gathered that Clive Lattimer, whatever his other virtues may have been, was in no sense a man of action. The conformation of his figure, with its pleasing rotundity, argued to the beholder that here was a man whose victories were of the mind rather than of the body.

WILLIAM C. EWING
ALL over the world it is recognized that the changing value of money is an evil that must somehow be done away with. When commodity prices are falling nobody buys more than is necessary, for the reason that next week prices may be lower still. When commodity prices are rising everybody buys, it is true, because next week prices may be higher; but, on the other hand, increasing wages and salaries must be paid in order to keep step with the increased cost of living, and that leads to strikes and serious disagreements of all kinds.

Week's Science
TREATING cigarettes so that they will extinguish themselves in a "reasonable time" after having been thrown away is a development now under consideration to reduce the possibility of forest fires. No change in the taste of a cigarette so treated is noticeable, though there is a certain dryness easily counteracted by humidification.

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
THE lordly bird which graced your New Year's table may now have a rather scraggly appearance, but it still presents many opportunities for attractive service. Indeed, the skilful cook can make of the remains a variety of dishes which rival a freshly roasted fowl in appetizing appeal.

THERE has been a definite increase in the number of authentic period rooms in homes throughout Canada. This is due partly to a greater interest in old houses and historical backgrounds and partly to the excellence of the period furniture which is being manufactured.

Question—I have $100 invested in Canadian Hydro-Electric and C. P. R. Are these securities perfectly safe? Are Dominion Government guaranteed C. N. R. bonds perfectly safe? Answer—Earnings reported by Canadian Hydro-Electric Company for the first six months of 1931 showed that the full year’s dividend on the preferred stock was earned in the first half of the year but the amount available for dividends in the second quarter of the year was less than in the first quarter.

I regret that I feel impelled to criticize our National Magazine but in the latest issue of Maclean’s I find a glaring error of the type which I have resented most heartily in American publications. In the opening paragraphs of Helen Creighton’s article on Sable Island I note that she locates this famous island 180 miles WEST of Halifax.
