The Righteousness of Doctors’ Bills

IF one were talking in fables this might be called the fable of the Physician, the Lawyer, and the Business Man. But as fables are more or less out of date and generally interpreted according to individual taste, it will serve better to recite the True Story of a Certain Mrs. Suburbs.

There is Not Money Enough in the World

AS far back as the early part of last summer I scheduled an article on this subject for Munsey’s Magazine, and I intended writing it then, while the thought was fresh in my mind. It was suggested by the excessive price of money, the smash that had already taken place in the security market, and the tremendous onrush of our industries and commercial affairs.

The British Trader in Canada

IF the Commercial Intelligence Committee of the Board of Trade follows up the report of its Special Commissioner on the conditions and prospects of British trade in Canada, it may accomplish more than the cloud of publicists who discourse about Imperial relations upon an abundant lack of first-hand knowledge of the business relations out of which political changes are evolved.

Some Methods of Distributing Profits

IN the matter of Profit Sharing in business, I wish to point out that there are two methods of dividing profits, first, by a fixed percentage of the general profits, forming part of a yearly contract between employers and employes ; secondly, by an optional or indefinite amount of profits, to be divided amongst workmen; at the end of the year.

How Sir Thomas Shaughnessy Reached the Top

THIS then gives preface to explaining Sir Thomas G. Shaughnessy, President of the greatest railway and shipping corporation in the world, the C.P.R.

The Power Behind a Vast Enterprise

IN 1890, nothing. In 1907, four thousand one hundred miles of railway in operation; six hundred under construction; and two thousand more surveyed; the whole absolutely controlled by two men. Herein is a record that would be remarkable in the United States.

The Enlistment of the Long Reach Men

LATE in the winter of 1811, Tom Norton returned to his humble home in the Long Reach Settlement from Adolphustown, at which place he had been employed during the fall and early winter months. Very pleasant it seemed to the little cobbler to be at home again! He stirred the fire on his lonely hearth until it threw out great rays of light and waves of heat, then with a bit of work on his knees, luxuriated in the glow and warmth.
