LADY OF VENTURES

THE TIMBER PIRATE

ARTEMUS DUFF, president and general manager of the Kam City Pulp and Paper Mills, subsidiary to-be of the International Investment Corporation, was in a very much perturbed state of mind.

Dog Days and Politicians

WILL WHEAT CROP BRING KEEN BUSINESS REVIVAL?

TYPICAL of the general uncertainty which prevails at present is the weekly budget of rumours from the wheat districts.
