PAWNED

A HANSOM cab, somewhat woebegone in appearance, threaded its way in a curiously dejected manner through the heart of New York’s East Side. A fine drizzle fell through which the street lamps showed as through a mist; and, with the pavements slippery, the emaciated-looking horse, the shafts jerking and lifting up at intervals around its ears, appeared hard put to it to preserve its footing.

Instead of travelling round three sides of an oblong as we had done to reach Oo-koo-hoo’s hunting ground by canoe, we now, travelling on snowshoes, cut across country, over hill and valley, lake and river, in a south-easterly direction, until we struck Caribou River, and then turned toward White River and finally arrived at God’s Lake.

THE QUEER TOFF IN NO. 13

STANDING for a moment of back-straightening relaxation, hands on hips, before the door of her modest pension, Mrs. Henry Alfred Briggs nodded towards the neat electric coupé by the curb. “He’s up with the queer toff in Number Thirteen now,” she told her neighbor, Mrs. Dancey.

JACK TURNER, lieutenant in the-battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, stood at the cross-roads of the tiny Belgian village of La Clytte. Amid the roar of transport wagons, motorcycles and ambulances he stood to one side of the road, ankle deep in mud, and scratched his head.

Should Loan Companies Extend Their Powers?

A DISCUSSION which has been proceeding in Ontario financial circles of late is so fundamental in its origin as to be of interest to the whole Dominion. This has to do with sources of capital for loan companies, to be used by them for investment in mortgages.
