THE WOLF PACK

LOBARR—that was still a name to raise a stir of comment in Verano Valley. And even though hard times had fallen since the day when the first Rodriguez and Ricardo Lobarr had struggled up riverbed and canyon wall over half a century before, that name stood yet for a fierce dominance and vigor there.

SECRET ENDS

JUDITH, across the breakfast table, had been speaking to me for a half minute or more before I got the meaning of her words. My mind was a confusion of conjecture and unbelief over my experience of the night before. The thing didn't make sense, no matter which way you turned it.

How HARLEY CRONIN DIED

KENT POWER’S long slim fingers were weaving out the subtle melody of Brahms on the small grand piano when his man, Hicks, slipped into the room and announced, after the music had died regret fully : “A young lady to see you, sir.” The training of a superior English servant is aimed at the production at all times of a complete impassivity of countenance.
Trouble Guy 45
FICTION

Trouble Guy

THE COVE was a giants’ punch bowl carved out of high jagged rock by centuries of northeasters, and the swells of the Atlantic rolled into it through a narrow bight. Fifty crazy steps led from the roadside down to the water’s edge. The young man, gathering driftwood, built his fire in a hearth-shaped niche of rock and looked around for a flat stone.

CATERING TO JOHN BULL

HEAD OF US, shrouded in smoke and mist, lay Liverpool. Suddenly the sea seemed full of ships. The handful of passengers on the cattle ship, S. S. Manchester Regiment, leaned on the rail and stared, fascinated, at the changed scene. For ten days we had rolled and pitched our way across a white-capped ocean.

REVOLT Beyond The ROCKIES

THE POLITICAL capital of British Columbia is filled at this time of year with an unutterable peace. In the cool offices of Government you will find men who don’t seem to have a care in the world, a boyish Prime Minister who seems to have shaken off worry by playing eighteen holes of golf at Oak Bay before breakfast, a Finance Minister with an empty treasury who can always find time to tell you about the fly fishing on the Cowichan last week-end.

Theree Rivers' 300 Years

THREE RIVERS, the Quebec city which celebrates its tercentenary this year, has many claims upon the attention of the historian, but it is doubtful whether any page of its romantic story is more impressive than the part played by its sons in opening up the Canadian and American West.

Dumb Talkies

INHERENTLY—and financially—I’m a talkie fan. Factually, I yawn at the talkies and then go home to brood over the pulp value of my stock certificates. If you ask me what is wrong with the talkies I counter with the query: What, beyond the mechanics of photography, is right with them?

HEAT, BEHAVE!

MAN from time immemorial has derived his most satisfactory moments from kicking about something. This was all very well when there was something which needed a first-class piece of reforming. But the list of things we can reform, even through the passage of the centuries, is comparatively small; so most of us, not endowed with too much imagination, turn to the things which, like the poor, we always have with us.

Empire Field Day

IF TIME and space were illusions and it were possible immediately to project ourselves into all parts of the British Empire, we would at this moment be astonished at the prevailing concentration upon things athletic. For this is the year when the senior sports champions will compete at London, England, in the second Imperial Games; and the schoolboy stars of the Empire will run, jump and throw in the City of Melbourne, Australia.
