MAXIMS OF SUCCESS. Great Railway Builder's Business Pointers. In tho course or a sketch of ^lia late Sir William Van Home, the builder of the Canadian Pacific Rail way, which appears in a recent "Corn hill," the following sayings of that colossal worker are recorded: "Sleep is a habit, and it is rather a bad habit, like eating." He himself would frequently, under pressure of work, do without sleep for many nights. "We are all born lazy. Some of us get impressions which call for our industry; industry leads to faclity,. and everything becomes easy." "Work! I never work. I never have worked since I was ten years old and split logs. I have only en joyed." "I never believe in taking long over anything, or in making greut prepara tions for work, and when I hear of studies and north lights and the im possibility of working with this thing or with that, I always feel that a man who talks thus is a humbug or he does not know his job." "Anyone can be an artist who will just go ahead and pain...
CHAPTER V. Belle is Recognised. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
CHAPTER V. Belle is Recognised. "Go away, girl. Send someone with softer hands. Never in all my lite did I know such a clumsy person as you!" Belle bit her lip. Something sus piciously like tears came into her eyes. Mrs. Lorrltt had been particu larly trying from the moment when she entered lJilling's Grand Empor ium; and as tbe weary minutes dragged by, as liat after hat was tried on for her edification, and as each model failed to please, her temper, never of the best, flared up. Belle had just suggested that perhaps a different style of hairdressing might render some one or other of the hats more becoming, and, as she removed the twenty-seventh creation from Mrs. Lorritt's peculiar-colored hair with the suggestion, it chanced that her fingers caught in the customer's hair-net. With a sleek rustling of silks Miss Grant, millinery forewoman at Pil ling's, glided forward. "Please, pardon! Miss Angel is new to the work. Certainly-certain ly-she shall be replaced." Mrs. Lorritt, who, ...

The Returned Soldier, THE S'ate War Council Is vigorously pro^ecu'ing its campaign in the interests of the re'urned soldier. Daily its offices are filled by men who have returned from the front, and who are only anxious, now they have discarded the khiki, and returned to civilian life, to ooce more become producing units for themselves, and ioridently for the community as a whole It is not temporary relief these men require, 3lthoagh this must be given to a large number owing to the want of support accorded by many employers in the mitter of supplying them with work a nature they are fitted to carry out. It i* hardly to bo expected ;hat a man &lt;vho h\9 been months under hospital treatment C3n take his place in the ranks with the strong active man who has psr. haps never known a day's sickness for years Consequently employers must give these men a chance to gradually recover their nM form.
