THE first mention we have in history of stockings appears in the annals of France, in the seventh century. The stockings were made of heavy cloth or leather and were worn by men only. An Englishman, William Lee, invented the first knitting machine in 1589, and on this machine he knitted a pair of silk stockings which he presented to Queen Elizabeth, who, we are told, was delighted with the present.

IT IS a popular belief that editors are a phlegmatic breed, and that if they cut themselves while shaving, ice-water runs out instead of blood. It is an erroneous belief. With few exceptions, editors react to things in much the same manner as do farmers, business men, policemen, plumbers, laundry-owners, street-car conductors and trombone players.

SHE lay in midstream, the yellow waters of the ebb licking disdainfully at her rusty flanks—a frowsy, antiquated bark of 1,200 tons or so, with tattered laundry hanging in her ratlines and Hecla, Hull, painted in a curve across her clumsy stern.

VICTOR LAURISTON
JUDGE TURGEON'S article, “I’d Unite the Prairie Provinces,” affords interesting reading. It is interesting because the author, as a former public man, knows his prairies, and as a present-day jurist views their problems with a measure of judicial detachment.

HAVE you money in the bank? Fifty thousand people in this country have money in the bank—and don’t know it. Are you one of them? The meaning attached to that word “money” isn’t a few cents interest on some old savings account— although even a few cents might be welcome these days— but real money, running to thousands of dollars.

JOHN RHODES STURDY
THE team of Weston and Cudlip had come suddenly to the parting of the ways. To Polly Weston it seemed rather silly and childish to break up over a slight misunderstanding and call it the end. No doubt she had been partly to blame and Johnnie had some reason to feel hurt and angry, but to sever their relationship completely seemed unnecessary.

ADVENTURES crowd in upon certain people as iron filings gravitate toward a horseshoe magnet or words swarm into a dictionary. My friend Beefy Bannister is like that. Mr. Bannister is a hockey player; a young hockey player. He is huge and pink and blonde, with perfect teeth and hair marcelled by Nature, clean, healthy to boisterousness, and entirely unsophisticated—a commonplace person save for his exceptional athletic prowess.

THE average Canadian woman spends $3.39 a year on cosmetics; the American woman, $12.32. Does this mean that the American woman needs $8.93 more beauty assistance. Or that the Canadian woman is content to be $8.93 less attractive than her sister across the border?

BILL SMITH—let us call him that—was a carpenter at Toronto. Back in 1928, when building was brisk and work plentiful, he earned $45 per week, which seemed a good deal better than sweating over potato rows. Bill paid $35 per month rent, gave his wife a generous allowance and the two children pocket money.

No sooner is the breath-taking performance of 408 miles an hour in the air accomplished than we are encouraged to believe that the day is not far distant when 500 miles an hour will be attained.

As a matter of fact, it has been known to the world for centuries, but never, it appears, in such virulent form as at present. “It is insidious in its attack.

Colorful Foods for Springtime
Spring is the time to put color into the menu and give it new freshness and charm

M. FRANCES HUCKS
A FEW years ago, there was no mistaking the signs of the changing seasons. Spring was unfailingly heralded—straw hats in shop windows, a bottle of tonic on the pantry shelf, and the glad news, “Sap’s runnin’,” after the first few warm days and clear, crisp nights.

1. The doges used to wed the Adriatic, and to marry we may require an English river. 4. This the habit, who smokes a cigar with this! 9. Would he, or would he not. get huffy if you left the door open? 11. Easily wearies—this weapon! always seems to involve a suggestion of malaise.

Slip Covers
Furniture, like people, should change dress with the seasons
[no value]
[no value]
F. L. DEN. SCOTT
ONE of the least expensive and most effective ways of changing the appearance and feeling of a room is by means of slip covers. This is particularly true as the seasons change. Chairs and couches which seem the height of comfort in winter when upholstered in velvet or damask or velours, impart an air of heaviness and even dustiness in the spring.

The Sound Position of Canadian Banks

F. B. HOUSSER
IN VIEW of the fact that there were nearly 4,000 bank failures in the United States during the year 1931, the position of our Canadian banks, as shown in their annual reports, should be particularly gratifying to Canadians. One of the primary demands made upon banking institutions is that they shall maintain at all times a high degree of liquidity, or, to put it another way, a strong cash position.

Question—I am considering the purchase of some Cockshutt Plow Company stock and would like your advice on the matter. I understand that they have passed their dividend and that it will no doubt be some time before conditions are better, depending largely on the price of grain.

THEN there’s the true story of the little boy of three whose name was John. Not long ago John’s mother and father took John to a moving picture theatre for the first time. John seemed to take it all pretty much for granted, as three-year-olds have a habit of doing when you want them to be very much impressed.

Captain A. H. d’Egville in his article “Canada on Skis,” states that Canada and the United States have labored under the disadvantage of having “their” skiing more or less dominated by Norwegian ideas. If this is a fact, I cannot see the reason why the skiers of Canada and the United States allow themselves to be defeated by Norwegian ideas.
