WHAT would you think if, regularly each year, you received a tax notice demanding a payment by you on account of interest on money borrowed for the building of the pyramids of ancient Egypt? Certainly it’s an absurd supposition. Well, what do you think about your own greatgrandchildren getting tax bills on account of debts incurred by the various governments who have been catering to you?

KENNETH PAYSON KEMPTON
GIL EASTON worked three hours Saturday morning, and about eleven o’clock got up and stuffed all his sheets of sermon paper into the stove. They roared up for a minute, then died to silence, as his voice would have done if he had said those words in church tomorrow.

MARION GREENE
A RADIO bleated and people babbled. George banged down his empty glass on the piano. His lean face was molded by bitterness, and his pale hair was peaked on the crown rebelliously. “As a race,” proclaimed George loudly, “we are decadent.”

ANGUS McSTAY
NED SPARKS is an exception to the rule that sex appeal is essential to Hollywood success. Never once classified as a romantic figure, the dead-pan Canadian comedian has probably stolen more pictures than any other individual in the industry.

R. A. FARQUHARSON
NEBRASKA, a purely agricultural state in almost the exact centre of the United States, prides itself on what it hasn’t got. Nebraska has no debt. It has no sales tax, income tax, cigarette tax, or any of the other special taxes which have become so common in recent years.

LAST YEAR, just before I left school, I was in that chase with Slugger Cassidy and Ginger Roland. We were all sitting here on the curb, when Fishy Snaith comes running up like the fire engine was chasing after him. “Hey, Slugger, there’s a truck load of something on the railway lines outside Hawthorne’s foundry!" he yells.

I HAD seen their semihuman photographs in the papers and had studied them with interest, for to me, revisiting Toronto after a few years absence, they seemed significant. They occupied space that cost money, a good deal of money, far more than would have been accorded to, say, some great statesman, scientist, or musician.

DO YOU believe in ghosts? Like all normal people, I do not—especially in the daytime. Once at three a.m. in a Scottish country house on the border of the Macbeth country I heard the sound of carriage wheels grinding on the driveway and the clop, clop of horses’ hoofs.

Silk in its natural state is the strongest textile yarn known to man, yet the filament is so fine that it takes 256,000 yards to make one pound. ★ In Great Britain there are more doctors than practices, with the result that, whereas the purchase price of a practice quite recently was equivalent to the receipts of eighteen months, the purchase price has now risen to the equivalent of two and a half years earnings or more.

I read with interest your article, “Mr. Hepburn’s Treasure Hunt.” Here is another instance of what they are doing. It may be all right according to the law, but to me it appears pretty small business. Mr. A. made a will about 1930, leaving part of his estate to a brother, Mr. B. But Mr. B. predeceased his brother, so did not come into that inheritance. Mr. B. died in 1932.

GOOD providers are busy in their kitchens, stocking their shelves with jams, jellies, conserves, and oldfashioned butters. Storing August flavor for January enjoyment. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think preserving is one thing the modern housekeeper does better than her grandmother.
