Some Things to Think About

ALL I shall attempt in this address will be to call your attention, in a homely way, to some vital things in regard to business conditions in the United States and Canada today which may set you thinking; things which, from my observation, have not been thought about to the extent that they should be.

SHORT STORIES

Leo, the Clown

THE large circus tent was crowded with people, for Denman's Circus was always popular at Sandgate-on-Sea, and its yearly visit was eagerly looked forward to, especially by the younger members of the population. It was a stormy night, and the wind howled against the canvas, and blew the flames of the oil lamps hither and thither, making them cast a shifting, uncertain light on the circus ring.

A SON OF RENOWN

STRANGERS idling through the dale wondered greatly as to who David Branthwaite might be when they chanced to meet him, for he was one of the men who could not be overlooked. Many were the mistakes the wayfarers made in their efforts to classify him, but, so far as is known, not one of them ever imagined him to be the doctor.

Tapping tbe Money Markets

MOST of us have at some time in our lives borrowed money. I do so myself, because I believe that opportunity should not be neglected. Presence of mind at the right moment will do much towards placing a man in funds; which may be a positive convenience, let alone a practical help.

The Coming of the Stimpsons

IRENE had been watching for her husband and when he came in sight, above the crest of the hill, she hastily caught up a cape and threw it around her and went out on the verandah, wet and icy with the sleet-like rain which was still falling in a slow, discouraged fashion.

The City with the Railway Link

"MARK my words,” once said Sir William Van Horne to a deputation of the citizens of Guelph, “the day will come when that little railway of yours will just about pay all your taxes.” The big railroad magnate referred to the Guelph Junction Railway, a short line some fifteen or sixteen miles in length, extending from the centre of the city to Guelph Junction, a point near Campbellsville on the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Military Drill From the Training Standpoint

IN view of the fact that Lord Strathcona’s gift for military and physical training in Canada has occasioned considerable comment, it may not be inappropriate to approach the matter from the training standpoint. Many thinkers are of the opinion that the training begets in the boy a love for militarism, for itself alone; that as he learns the marching, the rifle exercises, the skirmishing, and the other rudiments of the drill, there arises within him the desire to put these tactics into active practice.

A Great Canadian Shipbuilder

OF all the shipyards in the world, probably the most familiar, by name, at any rate, to Canadians, is that of Harland & Wolff, at Belfast, Ireland. There is an excellent reason why this should be so, though very few people may be aware of it, and that is because the man who has made this great yard, the famous place it is to-day, was born in Canada.
Salary Versus Commission 122123

Salary Versus Commission

THE question as to whether commercial travelers should be employed on salary or on commission does not in my judgment involve any established law or principle. In other words, it is not a scientific question. It may be laid down as a general truth in the relations between employer and employee even and exact justice shall be done.
