Shall Titles Be Restored?

THE English are not alone in loving a lord and adoring a duke. Walking down the Haymarket, a New York Democrat and I met an average-sized, average-dressed, average-looking man, of whom I said after we passed: “Did you notice that man? He is the Duke of Argyle.”

NOW, as all the world knows, there are places in London where a beneficent County Council permits a man to leave his motor-car for a period of time which renders the concession absolutely futile.

IT TAKES a good skipper to determine the flood of that elusive tide in the affairs of men of which the poet spoke, but it takes a better one, a man well versed in the art of navigation and a man possessing more than a usual amount of natural sagacity, to safely follow the tortuous course that leads on to fortune.

He Put the Gospel Into Gramalogues

Ottawa Leads a Double Life

THE capital of this country is an incomparable stage setting. A city of towers, high above a mighty river, with a background of ageless hills, it cries aloud for great drama, for combat, for pageantry and chivalry.
