TALBOT MUNDY
THE Portuguese doctor had binoculars; and, as usual, the telegraph line was broken, somewhere in the swamp to the southward toward Lourenço Marques. So all the other officials clustered around the doctor, on the sun-baked wharf, amid the sour stench of vino linto from the empty barrels in front of the government warehouse, to learn who was coming.

A FRUITFUL REVOLUTION

[no value]
GEORGE F. CHIPMAN
A HANDFUL of tiny crab-apple seeds planted at the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, in 1887 by Dr. William Saunders was the spark which started a revolution in the breeding of new fruits for cold climates. Simmering for over forty years, the revolution is now spreading over the prairie provinces, is attracting world-wide attention among scientific plant breeders, and promises within the next generation to have a marked effect upon the social and economic development of the greater portion of Canada.

YOU’VE HEARD, no doubt, of the good old days when cockfighting, even then as now against the law, was one of the most popular of indoor sports? So had I. I’d heard, as well, of the heavy betting which quite naturally went along with these fights.

SHAFTS of moonlight, splintering against a tall fir tree, fell in fragments on the dark lawn. A small breeze, lifting the wisteria, indolently loosed it again. On the verandah, the coal of a cigar and the tip of a cigarette gleamed fitfully, and the swing creaked under the negligible burden of a yellow dress.

RANDALL PATTERSON’S bright blue cabriolet cost him $8,000. It was heavy and fast, the hood so high that the driver's angle of vision came to earth 100 feet beyond the headlights. Never mind, it was handsome and arrogant; a car for a handsome and arrogant young man.

HELEN OSGOOD could see from the glint in Miss Terry's eye that a new idea was brewing—or had already brewed and was about to spill over. She had learned to hate that glint, just as she hated the first far-off flash of lightning on a calm summer’s night.

MR. HORATIO ALGER HEPBURN is the youngest Premier Ontario has ever had, and is getting a little sick of hearing it. He is nevertheless quite pleased to have won, even though it means living in Toronto. His proper names are Mitchell Frederick, but nine people out of ten refer to him as Mitch and the tenth person calls him Hep.

FELLOW READERS of Maclean’s, do you remember when your eyes fell on that caption, “Toronto Gives Me A Pain?” “Now, for some fun,” you probably thought. “Now we’ll see the fur fly.” But there was no grand intercity pelt plucking. Time and distance, those old peacemakers, interposed.

THE WIRELESS STATION, a log cabin deep in snowdrifts, looked like some dark, huddled animal ftxwen in search of shelter. It was intrenched by a forest of hemlocks, close as a stockade. Cut through them was a long straight route that in the brief summer was a road, but now was merely another stretch of snow over which lay a partly broken trail.

Canada is not a new country. 400 years ago, Jacques Cartier landed at Gaspé. 300 years ago, Three Rivers was founded; Montreal shortly after. Toronto has been a city for a century. Too often is the idea of newness put forward as a defense for sloppy and, in some cases, dishonest practices in our business and administrative life.

THE THIN MAN” is just about as good a mystery story as anyone could ask for. That is to say, it keeps you happily amused all the time it is keeping you anxiously waiting. It has, for one thing, a soundly constructed plot, tight at every joint—the sort of plot you can take apart and put together again after you get home and so have your fun all over again.

HERBERT N. CASSON
CORES of business firms have tumbled down into bankruptcy because they did not realize the importance of this pointer. They did not know the difference between Expansion and Show. Expansion means the growth of the business itself, while show means hanging ornaments on the business.

THAT THE human body is a weather barometer which has been impaired by the advance of civilization is the contention of Manfred Curry, M.D., in the Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung the article being reproduced in Magazine Digest. Both our body and soul feel the break in the weather some time before it actually takes place.

THERE IS hardly a corner of the world that has not contributed to our flower garden, states Pearson’s Magazine (London). The hollyhock originally came from China, some of the delphiniums from the Sahara, the bleeding heart from Siberia and Japan, the snapdragon from the Méditer-, ranean region, the montbretia from South Africa.

SYNTHETIC rubber tires which are just as good as real rubber ones are being manufactured, it is stated, but because of their high price they are not likely to become popular in the immediate future. Literary Digest tells us that: It looks like rubber, feels like rubber, wears like rubber—but isn’t rubber; it’s better.

To begin with, I never, believe it or not, heard of Lacey Amy before. He may be a Canadian author. My first impression on reading his article is that he possesses more money than sense. Anyone who, when he finds nothing to please him, knows no better than to keep on attending the movies, is certainly not qualified to write an article on the subject; and under the circumstances an unbiased one is the only kind that should be published in a magazine of a non-producing country.

WHAT TO DO in case one is unfortunate enough to be bitten by a venomous snake is told by W. S. Barclay in Discovery. He states: If no serum is immediately available, then the treatment for a venomous bite is as for high fever. Let the patient repose, with loosened clothing, and be kept as quiet as possible while the strength is kept up with sips of hot milk, beef tea, etc.

R. K. HALL, B. A., (Honors in Sleeping)
PIONEER LIFE in Upper Canada during this period was at best a pretty joyless, difficult sort of existence, its advantages greatly outnumbered by its disadvantages. A few of its disadvantages were: 1. Instead of the radio which brings us the finest jazz music in the land at every hour of the day and night, the pioneers had only the tiresome singing of the birds.

You are to be congratulated on publishing “Tell Britain.” If the majority of the nation could be shown behind the scenes and learn what goes on, it would be the greatest factor in allaying war fever. We hope you will continue along the same lines cf educating the public on these vital issues, and would commend to your notice a book which is full of striking corroboration of Drew’s article—The Bloody Traffic by Fenner Brockway.

IT IS comparatively easy to plan good meals; good to the taste and dietetically right. I want to say this right at the beginning, for I have known women so bewildered in the face of scientific information on the one hand and weird half-truths on the other that they decide to give the family what the family likes best and let it go at that.
