SUBSTRUCTURE

FROM the very manner in which Frank Dunkley slipped through the office doorway, and stood there staring down upon me with restless eyes, one could tell instantly that he had been jolted out of the ordinarily placid tenor of his ways. The mere effort with which he sought to control his nervous hands would have betrayed that fact, even if the haggard lines about his eyes had not spoken for themselves.

JAMES ILLINOIS BELL

Under the outer wrapping of embitterment and mystery there was something else. It was Duft, the keen-eyed inquisitor-facing this man, who told his strange story as impassively as a gambler playing his hand—who finally laid bare the motive of that mystery; and in baring that motive gives the story its unusual and vivid character.

THE BUZZ SAW 1213

THE BUZZ SAW

LAST January the Farmers’ Friend Tractor Company sent me out with Harry Burke, one of the salesmen, to try to sell a ten-ton Earthworm Tractor to Mr. Jake Benson, owner of the Benson Lumber Company of Beaver Dam, Ontario. I was sent as mechanic to handle the machine, and Harry Burke was sent as salesman to handle old Jake.
THE PUSH 1415

THE PUSH

Some men in business need a “push” before they make a success. Sometimes the “push” takes the form of economic necessity, or it may be a latent ambition, or it may be the unusual animating motive in Mr. Brown's story.

IF YOUR “SHIP COMES IN” WILL YOU HAVE PROPER STORAGE FOR ITS CARGO?

WHAT would you do if your ship came in? Men and women—invariably women, I find—sigh for “their ship to come in” and immediately conjure castles in California! An Ontario man I know was suddenly and definitely confronted with the problem not so long ago: at least he found it was a problem and not so easy of solution as he earlier pictured it.
