SOMEHOW or other we can't keep Edgar March out of this column. We know that so much publicity is embarrassing to him, because he is a vcry shy man. That is demonstrated by the fact that while we have been acquainted with him for seventeen years, it was not until a month or two ago that we learned that Edgar was a philosopher with a sense of humor.

PHYLLIS DUGANNE
MISS ANGELA POOLE, known to some hundred girls as The Angel, sat very erect in a slat-backed maple chair in her apartment and gave way to emotion. That, at least, was what she thought she was doing. She sat as straight and graceful and unyielding as any one of the straight, graceful and unyielding pieces of ancestral furniture which surrounded her, while feelings of dismay, horror, irritation and bewilderment surged within her.

A CERTAIN MR. BROWN told his friend Smithers that he intended to buy a motor car. At which Smithers remarked that Brown had chosen a tough time for the transaction. "You know your own business best, Brown,” he said archly. "I only wish I had the nerve to replace my old car.”

IF PETER hadn’t forgotten the fundamental difference between being a bachelor and having a wife, twins, a maid and a pooch, life wouldn’t have become so suddenly complex. But he did and it did, although when everything was over we agreed that all’s swell that ends swell.

FREDERICK EDWARDS
UPON a drably dismal afternoon a decade or so ago, a small and abysmally unhappy French-Canadian boy curled himself up in a wide armchair beside the big bay windows of a gloomy room in the City of Montreal, and compelled his mind to the consideration of a desperate, terrifying problem.

EDGAR MARCH
MY DOCTOR says that a man who is arguing about the League of Nations should not emphasize a point by slamming his foot down on a black tomcat's tail. I agree with him. My doctor, who knows a lot and will some day become a great specialist, says that stepping on a black tomcat’s tail is bad luck.

WILL R. BIRD
EVERY old battle area has its distinctions. Up Ypres way your landmarks are pillboxes, and Vimy has its dugouts and old trenches. On the Somme you find sunken roads and craters, and down in the Amiens territory old house ruins tell their own story.

THREE miles above Bick’s Crossing, Archie Kellar dropped into the bed of the Kla-wheen. West of the Crossing, which he purposely avoided, the undulating solitude of dark spruce forest and frozen swamp lifted to a range of mountains that divided the Kla-wheen from the Upper Yukon.

M. GRATTAN O'LEARY
OTTAWA, which likes to take on the airs of an Old World capital and to appear sophisticated and blasé, is all hot and bothered over the Imperial Conference delegates. Never before has it had so many distinguished strangers within its gates; never has so much of human greatness been brought together in any Empire spot outside of old London itself.

GRANT DEXTER
NEARLY $250,000 per day! Over a period of two years this has been Canada’s answer to the cry of the unemployed; the cry for work, food, clothes, shelter. With steadily mounting numbers of unemployed, with ceaseless demands for charity, citizens of this country may ask—what have our governments done?

CONSTANCE TEMPLETON
IN THIS age of standardization, even the feminine physique has been reduced to a formula. No longer is it thought of in terms of the Venus de Milo, but as a number 608 or 57 ½, representing so many inches around and so many up and down. The numbers are not measurements.

Hooked Rugs and Homespun
Handmade rugs and homespun fabrics, once an economic necessity in rural Canada, are now highly prized by decorators

F. L. DEN. SCOTT
FOR hundreds of years a matter of bitter necessity, the production of homespun, of woven coverlets and rugs of various kinds is today a flourishing Canadian industry. These things were once made by agricultural people for their own use. Only recently have they been "discovered” and appreciated by interior decorators and art lovers.

Good and Bad Mortgages

W. J. JEFFERS
IN THE shadow of growing municipal taxation and falling real estate values, the long and honorable record of first mortgages as safe and remunerative investments is being lost sight of. The high yields of Dominion, provincial and municipal bonds for the moment have diverted institutional and private investors from mortgages to an extraordinary degree, and the lack of confidence which still keeps most investors out of the stock and corporation bond market also tinges their attitude toward mortgages.

Having just read your articles, “The Englishman’s Lament” and "It’s a Very Good Idea,” I cannot resist a few comments. Mr. A. C. Cuthbert’s remarks are exceptionally well handled and to a great extent true. It is a shame he is “Goin’ ’Ome” because we need naturalized Canadians better than average intelligence—a classification to which this annoyed Englishman undoubtedly belongs.
