ONE-WAY TICKET

FLYING at 5,000 feet in the hazy blue vault of the summer sky, Joe Smith, who had once been Pilot Joseph Stedman of Universal Air Transport, had the world over the Canadian wilds to himself. Which was not wholly as it should have been, for at some time during the past hour his friend, Dick Connor, flying a ship that was a twin to the one Joe piloted, should have passed him, bound south from Bushton Mines, near the edge of the Barrens, to Woodville on the railroad.

Hidy Has a Memory

HIDY HOPP was wrapping up a pound of pork sausages for Mrs. O’Leary when I went into his father’s butcher shop one sunny day. Hidy Hopp is twenty-two and has a double chin, so when he turns forty-four he should have four chins.

GIRL +MAN +BOAT

THE BOAT seemed to be embedded in all that blue like a fly in a piece of amber. No clouds broke the curve of the sky, no cat’s-paws ruffled the oily Pacific, which undulated sluggishly as if the ocean breathed in sleep. In the shadow of the idle sail brooded Columbine and Mephistopheles, sadly dumb because laments, prayers and forebodings were all in vain.

AUSTRALIA SEES IT COMING

AT A BANQUET in Melbourne, Australia, recently, the Governor-General arose. Govemors-General usually have remarks to make rather than something to say, but Sir Isaac Isaacs threw back his fine head and spoke as a man speaks to those who require “Defense,” he began, “is the paramount consideration of Australia today.”

FAKES and FAKERS

THERE IS possibly no business today which is more of a target for fraudulent schemes, both the amateur and professional, than the insurance business. The “rackets” exposed in this article—taken from the case files of insurance companies in this country as well as from reports presented by claims investigators at conventions—show that schemers of all kinds think an insurance company is fair game; and it is to the credit of the companies engaged in this business in Canada that they settle legitimate claims as speedily as they do.

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE

VANDELEUR had been surprised when Jimmie called at his flat that night. Of course, Jimmie had been there often enough with his wife at one or another of Vandeleur’s parties; but he had never come alone and uninvited before, and there seemed no special reason why he ever should.

Dusky Diamond Limited

GREEN LIGHT from the block signal. The conductor waves his lantern. The hoghead (engineer to you) slowly opens up the throttle, and in a moment the Dusky Diamond Limited is tearing down the track as if Satan himself were after her. To ride this train or its rival, the Underseas Flyer, or the two other main line trains of this famous and unique railroad which wanders some four miles under the Atlantic Ocean adjacent to the Cape Breton shore, is no mean privilege.
