a line to the north by means of
which the Hill system will get

then otters sufficient .inducements the cross country road
will bo carried to the Yukon
and there will be an American
system stretching from New-

lt is claimed that a line to the
north wonld tap a country not
alone valuable for its lumber
and minerals, but possessing arable land sufficient to provide
for all the Americans who rushed into the Canadian northwest this year.

"It is the greatest mining district in this country, outside of

An Immense Undertaking
Tenders will be invited in
Vancouver, Chicago, Montreal
Winnipeg and Calgary, for the
main canal excavation connected with the C. P. R.'sstupendous
irrigation project near the last
named place.
J. S.   Dennis,   engineer    in
charge, states that the tenders
will be called for at once.   The
main canal   will   lie   ,15 miles
long, 00 feet wide at. thebottom,
anil will hold water to a depth
of 10 feet,   This canal will carry the water to the secondary
canal which will when ultimately completed, be 115 miles long,
To make the main canal, 250,

have to be removed, and the
work will be done  hy   power

railways, etc.   The  project is
the largest of its kind on this
continent,   and is designed to
make useful for general agricultural and grazing purposes over
three million acres of hind now
lying waste owing to the lack
of moisture, the region being
subject to cycles   of   extreme
drought.   Of the tract to be reclaimed   it   is  estimated that
1,500,000 ae.res will be rendered

It is a remarkable fuct that while
nriuully eiury resident of Labrador
nas been il.U-n by tho sumgc dogs
of tbe region V er* has never teen a
cate of nydrjipnoi.iu there. Tho fact
is attested by l'r. ttrenleil, the super-
intondout of the English medical mi»-
sion there, and who hus now apent
ten years nn the coast and treated
over 80,000 patients. He cannot ei*
plain this singular circumstance; it
way be due lo climatic conditiona,
but It is more probable the result of
tlie wolfish strain In the breed of the
dons lhe extraordinary part of it
is thut Much a condition should be
found allied with the most absolute
savagery on the part of the animals.
They are tie fiercest of any brutea
trained to he of service to mankind;
they will stack anything they be*
lieva weaker thnn themselves, and
they are only kept in subjection by
the unceasing use of thc lash.
They ate a cross between the
wolves and the earlier Newfoundland
dogs brought there and by this time
almost all but the wolfish characteristics are eliminated I'he coastfolk
lind them lnill8|ienslble, yet live in
fear of them. No man ventures
a! road without his whip, every wo.
tuna carries a stout club; it is death
to a child to get among them. Only
last month the little son of the
aijont of the Hudson's Bay Company s post at Sandwich Inlet waa
attacked by these brutea. Within a
minute they had inflicted over sixty
hltea on the child, and but for the
doiotion of a pet retriever dog and

the rescue, he must have bean literally torn to pieces. He was taken
to the hoSjiitul at India harbor,
where he is making a quick recovery.
This was a more fortunate outcome

The school where thorough'work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed ; where Bookkeeping is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shorthand is scientific ; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil Service, Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them howto be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do. When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done tor
others is It better to trust to luck? Is it wiser to guess?
