HERE IS THE FARMER’S ANSWER

WHEN you come back to the farm factors, too high overheads and too low returns, with their various sub-divisions to which the farmer ascribes his failure to make sufficient profits to anchor him permanently to the land, you are in a realm of just as great controversy as on wages and freights.

THE SQUIRE raised himself on his elbow and secreted the bag where he could assure himself of its presence by a touch. Then he sank back with a grunt of relief and his hand went to the keys which also had their home under his pillow. He clung to them, they were his badge of authority, of power.

THERE were several of us in the soldier’s comfortable smoking-room. The ladies had retired for the night; but in spite of the appalling thickness of the atmosphere, none of us seemed disposed to follow their example.

LOAN SALE IN U. S. SHOWS SOUND BUSINESS POSITION

THE FLOATING of the $100,000,000 loan by the Minister of Finance in New York is the outstanding event of the year in Canadian finance and an achievement that should gladden the hearts of investors in Canadian high grade securities. It is not so much the fact that the amount of $100,000,000 was placed so readily and over subscribed within half a day at the time it was offered to the public, as the extremely favorable price.

THERE was a curious link between old Dan Durkee and Ernie Budder. Dan was a sullen, disappointed, malicious old man; and he was quite generally distrusted and disliked.

MY OTTAWA MEMORIES, 1866—

WHEN Ottawa was selected to be the capital of the united provinces of Upper and Lower Canada its unsuccessful competitors for the coveted honor described it as a lumbering village in the backwoods, and the description was sufficiently accurate to arouse resentment among the people at the new seat of Government.
