A Footstep Outside

OUTSIDE, the wind pulled at stark tree limbs, trailed streamers of snow through the dark, but in the little grey brick outbuilding it was as hot as high noon in the Nicaraguan jungle. Long glass tanks stood around the walls, some clear, others a tangle of tape and hair grass, cabomba and crystalwort, their liquid depths dark mirrors of moving color—tiny blue and gold platyfish, green and silver swordtails, black mollies, red tetras, brown paradise fish, jewelfish, guppies and barbs.

THE VOICE of the girl at the desk phone was discreetly low. "Did you have a good week?” The question was rhetorical, as flat as the multiplication table. "Oh, so-so,” replied the man two miles uptown. "Their accounts were in pretty bad shape, but we ought to wind things up out there in a few days.”

Self-Support for the Unemployed

WHEN THEY SAY at Kingsley Farm that the place is doing well, more likely than not they are thinking less of farming than of the men who work the farm, for Kingsley is one farm in Ontario where they do not measure profit by the yield of the acre.
