TWO HUNDRED miles due west of Lisbon, Portugal, bound for her hailing port, Halifax, Nova Scotia, the freighter Mary Watson slopped along in a heavy following sea, quite at ease among the roiling greybacks and placidly maintaining her nine knots.

THERE were millions, perhaps eight millions, of people in Canada who saw the King and Queen go by. Seldom in the world's history has there been such an audience. Never before has there been an undertaking of the kind on so grand a scale as that which brought the King and Queen where all Canada, and the world beyond, might see them.

GEORGE POWERS descended the stairs, two steps at a time, carolling in a lively, off-key baritone. In the breakfast nook, Sally spooned cereal into Tyke, who was enthroned on a cook book and a gingham cushion, and remarked, “Your father sounds unusually hearty this morning!” Bursting in upon them, George kissed Sally fleetingly between an ear and an eye, and flourished a playful fist under his son’s nose.

YESTERDAY I ran into Mr. Chamberlain. If that is too free a use of words, let me try it another way. Yesterday Mr. Chamberlain and I voted together in the “Aye” lobby. There are two lobbies, one on each side of the Chamber. By this division one is enabled to express one’s approval or disapproval of any measure before the House.

WE HAVE just had our twenty-fifth reunion, Margaret. Most of the old crowd were there; Brick van Orden, and Julien Banks, the football player, and Bob Harlow, of course. To them, I was something of a stranger at first, for I had not returned since graduation, but we talked of old Doc Kingsley, the Latin prof, and of Poppy Gibbs, the dean, recalling our campus years; and after a while we were friends again.

DURING last March Canadians interested in this country’s heavy industries were deeply stirred by the official announcement of a discovery of high grade iron ore at Steep Rock Lake, Ontario. The find, made at a point 135 miles west of Port Arthur, four miles north of the C. N. R. station of Atikokan, shows an ore body estimated on the preliminary investigation work to contain 100,000,000 tons of ore averaging between fifty-five and sixty per cent pure iron.

THE DAY that started with a blazing sun beating down like liquid fire on unprotected necks, has darkened into a drizzle, turning the whole landscape into a dank and sodden greyness. Sudden spurts of drenching rain whip the open fields into an unending quagmire.

NEW YORK will never forget the night on which that epic match was held. It snowed for the first time that winter, for one thing. It was so cold that you could snap a fingernail against a cop’s badge and the badge would shatter like a gingersnap. So would your fingernail.

FIVE or six months from now is the time you'll really appreciate the extra row of jars on the pantry shelf. The conserves will be at their best then, with a background of hot toast or scones and a spot of steaming tea to accompany them. They're like jam but are made of two or more fruits instead of just one.

VINEMOUNT, ONT., is a cosy little village in Wentworth County where the grapes and peaches grow. By no means a teeming metropolis. Vinemount folks live placidly, free from the harassing excitements that so complicate existence in the big cities.
