NAMES ARE fascinating things to speculate upon; they shouldn’t ever be taken for granted. The names of places, the names of things, the names of men. Given some proper key, a name will betray hidden sources of race, of character, the subtle spring to human conduct.

M. GRATTAN O’LEARY
WHAT’S THIS constitutional headache Canada suffers from? Like Mark Twain’s weather, everybody talks about it, but nobody tells where, how or why it hurts, or what can or should be done about it. To Dominion politicians, the B. N. A. Act (our constitution) is Public Enemy No. 1. They say it stifles reform.

DAD SAID to ride Jacob, the two-year-old, and leave Matthew in his stall because Matthew was a little off his feed. And so I didn’t have much chance to do any thinking during those three fast miles separating our white stone house from the twentyacre tract where Uncle Bill had made over the rambling barn into what he called his duplex studio.

IN THE dream world where Michel Caron struggled, the sound of the bells was like a tide engulfing him, and he fought against it into wakefulness and still the waves rolled all about him. He swam on a sea of sound. He blinked his eyes, stretched wearily in the great feather bed and flung an arm across his forehead.

WESTERN CANADA is not all droughtand debt-ridden. While hundreds of thousands are destitute and on relief, and Ottawa sees a national emergency in the three prairie provinces, there are some Western farmers, rich in money, land and cattle, to whom debts and relief are unknown.

MOST OF YOU who saw the picture, “Mutiny on the Bounty,” must have said to yourselves something like this: “Well, thank heaven, a thing like that can’t happen now.” I am here to tell you that the horrible scene in the open boat did rehappen, in 1923, and if I cover the waterfront for another 100 years, I hope that never again will I hear so pitiful a story.

THIS IS Garbo’s picture and a beautiful one. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer have supplied a handsome production, and a line assisting company, but it is Garbo, fragile but dominant, who gives the picture freshness and power. The part of Marguerite is probably the most famous invalid role of all time.

CARRYING the guarantee that it will last as long as you own your car, a “lifetime” automobile battery is being introduced. The secret of its claim to long life is a mat of spun glass that protects each positive plate. Adopting a principle that has been used in giant electric power plants of submarines, locomotives, dreadnoughts, traction motors and industrial plants for fifteen years, the flexible web of porous glass sheathes the plate and prevents tiny particles of lead from dropping away.

The bite of a nonpoisonous snake will show four rows of small, sharp, even teeth, and a series of shallow and bleeding marks over the entire wound. These can be treated like the bite of any other small animal, that is, by being cleaned, disinfected and kept lightly bandaged till healed.

ACCORDING to official records, the youngest Canadian soldier to see active service in France was W. H. H. Hutchinson, of Vancouver. On June 23, 1916, he enlisted as a bugler at the age of twelve years. Struck off the roll because he was under age, he nevertheless proceeded to England with the battalion as a stowaway.

Miss Alice A. Chown appears to be under the impression that Canada is unarmed and, consequently, undefended. May I respectfully suggest that Canada should realize that she would be “gobbled up” in one minute were she not defended by, first, the Monroe Doctrine, but chiefly by the wealth, power and might of Great Britain and Great Britain’s armaments.

We're Harvesting the Forest
A reply to Francis Dickie's "We’re Murdering the Forest"

A. W. COOPER
APPARENTLY Mr. Francis Dickie wrote "We’re Murdering the Forest” with the praiseworthy intent of calling attention to what he regards as a public calamity. While some of the things he says may profitably be emphasized again and again, I feel that, however unintentional, the article is in some respects unfair and misleading.

IT’S A GOOD housekeeper who knows how to do her job backward. Anybody can take a recipe from the file, order the supplies needed and set about diligently following directions. But it’s another problem to be confronted with a miscellaneous assortment of ingredients and the necessity of serving them a second time in some appetizing form.
