Solomon’s HalfWay House

THE Portuguese doctor had binoculars; and, as usual, the telegraph line was broken, somewhere in the swamp to the southward toward Lourenço Marques. So all the other officials clustered around the doctor, on the sun-baked wharf, amid the sour stench of vino linto from the empty barrels in front of the government warehouse, to learn who was coming.

NO ELEPHANTS

HELEN OSGOOD could see from the glint in Miss Terry's eye that a new idea was brewing—or had already brewed and was about to spill over. She had learned to hate that glint, just as she hated the first far-off flash of lightning on a calm summer’s night.

THE WIRELESS STATION, a log cabin deep in snowdrifts, looked like some dark, huddled animal ftxwen in search of shelter. It was intrenched by a forest of hemlocks, close as a stockade. Cut through them was a long straight route that in the brief summer was a road, but now was merely another stretch of snow over which lay a partly broken trail.

PRACTICALLY MENTAL

SHAFTS of moonlight, splintering against a tall fir tree, fell in fragments on the dark lawn. A small breeze, lifting the wisteria, indolently loosed it again. On the verandah, the coal of a cigar and the tip of a cigarette gleamed fitfully, and the swing creaked under the negligible burden of a yellow dress.

DEATH ON THE STRAIGHTAWAY

RANDALL PATTERSON’S bright blue cabriolet cost him $8,000. It was heavy and fast, the hood so high that the driver's angle of vision came to earth 100 feet beyond the headlights. Never mind, it was handsome and arrogant; a car for a handsome and arrogant young man.

Ottawa ... née Boytown

FELLOW READERS of Maclean’s, do you remember when your eyes fell on that caption, “Toronto Gives Me A Pain?” “Now, for some fun,” you probably thought. “Now we’ll see the fur fly.” But there was no grand intercity pelt plucking. Time and distance, those old peacemakers, interposed.

BALANCED MENUS

IT IS comparatively easy to plan good meals; good to the taste and dietetically right. I want to say this right at the beginning, for I have known women so bewildered in the face of scientific information on the one hand and weird half-truths on the other that they decide to give the family what the family likes best and let it go at that.

A FRUITFUL REVOLUTION

A HANDFUL of tiny crab-apple seeds planted at the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, in 1887 by Dr. William Saunders was the spark which started a revolution in the breeding of new fruits for cold climates. Simmering for over forty years, the revolution is now spreading over the prairie provinces, is attracting world-wide attention among scientific plant breeders, and promises within the next generation to have a marked effect upon the social and economic development of the greater portion of Canada.

You are to be congratulated on publishing “Tell Britain.” If the majority of the nation could be shown behind the scenes and learn what goes on, it would be the greatest factor in allaying war fever. We hope you will continue along the same lines cf educating the public on these vital issues, and would commend to your notice a book which is full of striking corroboration of Drew’s article—The Bloody Traffic by Fenner Brockway.
