-On Saturday the two went over
to the station to meet Richard,
and Rosy felt her rebellious heart
give a throb of joy when she saw
Hugh with her host, although she
pretended to be very angry, and
, Would not speak to him.
They all climbed into the boat
which was to take them to the
Stewart cottage, and then Hugh
"What did you tell Rosy about
me, Kathryn?" "
Kathryh's face grew a little
redder than it had been since she
first saw Hugh with her husband,
but she said stoutly:
"I just told her you were crazy
about a typewriter. I think you
ought to be ashamed of, Yourself,
Hugh and Richard looked at
each other, and -then -burst into
a roar of laughter, while the two
girls looked furious.
"So I am," Hugh said at last,
'but it is a machine, not a girl.
I'm going to have the agency for
it, and that is one reason I can
think of getting married at this
' Richard, and Kathryn effaced
themselves as soon as their guests
reached land, and Rosy made up

THAT SUBWAY DREAM
The chances are that Chicago
won't have subways for years to
come; certainly not so long as a
political subway commission
hangs'onto a subway scheme that
means spending several hundred
millions- of the people's money to
haul everybody to the loop stores
and keep on boosting the price of
property in the loop..
Jn the meantime something
ought to be done to improve ser
vice on the street railway lines
we already -have, and with a view
to hauling people where they
want 'to ' go without hauling
everybody through the loop.
Chicago has plenty of room to
grow, north, south and west,
without growing up in the air in
a restricted loop district.
And politicians might as well
get it into their heads- that the
people are not going to vote to
tatf.themselves several hundred
millions for a subway System
planned to hold this city down, to
a business territory only a few
Get busy and give the people
good service on the railways we
already have. If the loop wants
a loop subway, let the loop pay
Western Canada has this sea
son devoted over 5,000,000 acres
to the cultivation of oats.
