AN ISSUE or two ago, in writing this column, we exceeded the space limit by three lines and had to cut down. Hamish, the composing-room messenger, brought the matter to our attention by waving a proof and announcing, “Three lines too long.

STARTLING evidence of the extent to which cost of government in Canada has risen in ten years is afforded by a compilation issued recently by the Citizens’ Research Institute. In 1925 it took $751,685,000 or approximately three quarters of a billion dollars to operate all Canadian governments.

THE GATES of Jerusalem were shut, one April afternoon in 1936. There was a cavernous roar. Shops closed. Shutters up. Stretcher-bearers carrying wounded Jews and Arabs. Airplanes circled like roaring buzzards. Armored trucks patrolled the suburbs.

FOR SEVERAL years the Dominion of Canada has enjoyed the unique distinction of being, at once, the most advanced and the most backward of the great nations, aeronautically speaking. It all depends on how you look at it. In volume of freight carried by air, estimated at 13,500 tons in 1936; in bush flying; in the use of aircraft for exploration, development and mapping, Canada easily leads the world.

CROOKED DICE, marked cards, magnetic gambling tables, ingenious machines to place up your sleeve or in your trouser leg, punchboards with a key to all the winning numbers, slot machines “fixed” so the operator can take as much as he wants—all these and more are faithfully described in a catalogue entitled “The Secret Blue Book,” published by a United States gambling equipment manufacturer.

Mr. Baldwin to Retire
THE OTHER Saturday my wife and I had an experience which I would like to share with my Maclean’s readers. It is possible it may not interest you very much. In that case I hope you will tell me. All I can claim is that the adventure will remain in my memory until, as an old man, I sit by my fireside and tell the younger generation those stories of long ago which have bored young people since the world began.

A SECTION of the tropical dusk, soft, glowing, palpitating, consolidated suddenly and she was there. Part of the swiftly-approaching night that had taken human form. For an instant she stood erect, then sank gently into a crouching position before the verandah of the bungalow.

R. A. FARQUHARSON
FOR SEVENTY years the battle of provincial rights has been fought in Canada. The fortunes of war have been steadily with the provinces. Early this year, before the Privy Council, the Dominion received the most crushing of all its defeats. Now that the air has cleared, there is a growing feeling that out of the impasse thus created may come constitutional peace.

LESS THAN thirty years ago a frail youth fighting for his life in a sanitarium; twenty-five years ago a Government official cruising the British Columbia forests; today one of the half dozen outstanding business leaders of the Canadian West—boss of a timber empire, operator of sawmills and logging camps, bank director, head of the biggest fish-packing organization in British Columbia, and operator of a fleet of more than half a hundred chartered ships plying the trade lanes of the world.

OTHER CANADIAN cities enjoy saying snarky things about Toronto. People of Halifax and Saint John, of Winnipeg and Vancouver, of Hamilton and Montreal—oh, especially of Hamilton and Montreal—have for many years exercised their wits to point sharp arrows of satire designed to give Toronto citizens a pain in their necks.

THE Italian Government, anxious to encourage marriage and stimulate tourist trade, offers honeymoon couples an opportunity to travel on its trains for seventy per cent less than the ordinary fare. The newly-weds have to produce a marriage license, properly dated, before they receive the cut rate.

NEWSBOYS IN Philadelphia wear electric signs that flash across their chests the name of the paper they represent. The sign not only has a strong advertising appeal, making it easy to “spot” a newsboy on a crowded street at night, but it protects the boy selling papers in automobile traffic.

Hints on how best to preserve their color, flavor and food value

M. FRANCES HUCKS
THE FOOD BUDGET says that one fifth of the whole food allowance should be used for vegetables and fruits. Which is far too much to throw away in careless buying, slipshod preparation and uninspired service. Not that any of us would be guilty of such crimes, because we know many reasons besides the financial one for giving these foods the respect and consideration they deserve.

PROTECTING FRUIT on its way to market by wrapping in paper has long been practiced, and for years it has been sought to impregnate this wrapping with a material which will prevent spoilage by mold. Experiments have shown that iodine is useful in this respect were it not for the fact that it may stain the fruit.

KATHLEEN BOYES
I like a mustache that halts with a click, But, in between bounds, is virile and thick. In hasty encounters its points can’t be missed.
