PETER PATON sucked gently at his pipe. The fragrant smoke curled away from his nostrils, almost invisible in the brilliant moonlight. He frowned a little, concentrating on sharpening a hog spear with a file. He held it firmly by the bamboo haft against the arm of his chair.

THE SCREEN adaptation of Feuchtwanger’s novel “Jew Suss,” is one of those magnificent historical pictures which English studios are learning to do better than anyone else in the world. A sombre, cold and haughty picture which deals with tyranny and treason and ends in one of the most elaborate hangings ever screened, it may not meet with the success of “The Private Life of Henry VIII,” which managed to be rollicking even in its scenes of execution.

MR. DELACROIX —The Big Lily!

BAILEY ALDRICH’S father, being rather young for the paternal rôle, liked to cultivate, vis-à-vis his offspring, the manner stern. “Well, Bailey,” he said, looking up from his wineglass as his son entered the drawing-room, “and how did you get along at school today?”

I HAVE JUST been reading Edna Jaques’s article on Briercrest, and I am wondering are we brave and self-reliant, as she says or infers. It is nice to be flattered, and we like to be told that we are brave and steadfast and honest and persistent.

HERRIES!” said J.T. “For heaven’s sake, turn off that radio in the lounge.” Herries deftly whisked away a few crumbs from the sparkling damask cloth, placed the usual demitasse and liqueur before J.T., straightened his tall, liveried figure, and noiselessly left the room.

Beer Over Ontario

IN MY LAST article I gave the observations, made on the spot, of my long tour around the province. In the hundred odd villages, towns and cities to which Maclean's had sent me I had questioned mayors, police chiefs, leading citizens, workers and unemployed about the new Beverage Rooms.

THE ALLWESTERN

THE WEST is a sprawling giant. From Winnipeg to Calgary stretches league after league of prairie, with a few cities put down here and there like very small dots on a very large map. Then come the Rockies— magnificent as scenery, but hard for the purses of rugby clubs to buck.

Christmas Grouch

OLD SAM TRAPP came in from the bam to get the ball of twine that should have been in the kitchen table drawer but was not. It was the middle of the afternoon and his wife had gone to town in the car, and lordy only knew where she had put the twine. As he hunted here and there for it he got madder and madder, muttering under his breath at first and then talking right out loud.
