OVINGTON’S BANK

THE SQUIRE had not in his inmost heart derived much satisfaction from his visit to the bank. He had left the place with an uneasy feeling that the step he had taken had not produced the intended effect. Ovington had accepted the loss of his custom, not indeed with indifference, but with dignity, and in a manner which left the old man little upon which to plume himself.

WOMAN DETECTIVE’S STORY 1617

WOMAN DETECTIVE’S STORY

WHEN I first started detective work I was such a baby at it that I wanted to cry whenever I had to go up to some bright-looking girl and accuse her of stealing. I often feel that way yet. With some of the refined, sweet-looking young girls who take the pretty trifling things they cannot afford to buy it is merely a case of “keeping up with the Jones’s.”

HER FEET WERE CROSSED

PETTIFER drew a crisp brown slice from the electric toaster and glanced across the table at his wife. “What are you doing this afternoon?” “I’m playing golf,” she said with a little “What!” “I thought you’d be surprised.” “I am,” he admitted.
THE SIXTH THING 1819

THE SIXTH THING

WHEN you get off the boat at East Harbor in the morning, four or five automobiles with the legend “Public” pasted upon their windshields are on hand to carry you whither you wish to go. Most of the men who drive these cars are young, but one of them is old, and looks older than he is.

An Interesting Session, Forsooth!

THE war that was waged for democracy has not been fought in vain. For even from Parliament the old autocracy has been banished. In the days of Laurier, a plumed Knight waved a graceful hand and Canada had a new law. When Borden sat in the seats of the mighty he passed an order-in-council or cracked the whip over the heads of his devoted followers and the country sat up, listened and obeyed.

AS I SAW POLITICS IN ENGLAND

A LOYAL British subject like myself in dealing with the government of England should necessarily begin with a discussion of the monarchy. I have never had the pleasure of meeting the King—except once on the G.T.R. platform in Orillia, Ontario, when he was the Duke of York and I was one of the welcoming delegates of the town council.

BONDS AND STOCKS CONTINUE STEADY RISE

THE FIGURES supplied by the Department of Finance for the fiscal year ending March 31,1922, show a serious decline in revenue and an increase of $73,000,000 in the net national debt or an average of more than $6,000,000 each month. There seems little likelihood of Canada being able to make a start on the wiping out of this debt during the present year.

SATISFIED LABOR WILL STICK

REPLACEMENT value is a phrase that has become one of our household words. It is a useful and hard-working phrase, that has seen both good and bad fortune. In the booming war years certain individuals and corporations deftly concealed themselves behind it to their great financial gain.
