The Fall Triumphant 1213

The Fall Triumphant

NONE of us is perfect; even the best and most strictly disciplined amongst us have somewhere hidden away the secret failing, the little ewe-lamb of guilt which, in spite of our strong resolutions, we know we cherish and admire above all our fleecy flock of virtues.
THE THREAD of FLAME 2425

THE THREAD of FLAME

BEYOND this point I had made no progress when we landed in New York. I still knew myself as Jasper Soames. Miss Blair still suspected that I was running away from justice. That I was running away from justice I suspected myself, since how could I do otherwise?

The BIRTH of a LABOR PARTY

Winning A POST in FUR LAND

YOU'RE asking for Spirit Lake Post?" Duncan Macneil began the question with a shout but ended it with a groan as the three broken ribs jabbed the flesh of his rage-distended chest. “Yes, sir,” answered Johnnie Upham meekly as he stood at the foot of the district manager’s bed.
POLITICS Under the SHADOW 1415

POLITICS Under the SHADOW

WAITING and watching describes the attitude and occupation of the two old parties at Ottawa. They’re waiting for heaven knows what and keeping both eyes on the greater production of farmer statesmen.
