JOHN BRUCE closed the door of Larmon’s suite, and taking the elevator went up to his own room in the Bayne-Miloy Hotel, two floors above. Here he flung himself almost wearily into a chair.

OUR LOWER PRICES BOGEY

NEARLY ninety years ago, in a series of articles he was contributing to Fraser’s Magazine, under the title of “Sartor Resartus,” Thomas Carlyle wrote: “I say, there is not a red Indian, hunting by Lake Winnipic, can quarrel with his squaw but the whole world must smart for it— will not the price of beaver rise?”

THE monikers, or nicknames, that men of the turf give to each other are at all times descriptive. From some caprice in dress, as “Silk Clad;” oddity of action, as the “Jiggles Kid;” or through geographic connection, as “Alabam;” or methods of dealing, as “Square Cut;” are these appellatives bestowed on men of the racing fraternity by each other.

PEACOCK’S PINNACLE: 1415

PEACOCK’S PINNACLE:

RESPONSIBILITY has dogged every footstep in the lifetime of E. R.

This is the highest honor that can be conferred upon any Canadian in the active financial life of the Empire, and it is the consensus of opinion of Mr. Peacock’s friends that he has achieved it by his integrity, his business acumen and by his sense of the responsibility attaching to a man in a position of trust.
