The Canadian Pacific Railway will
contribute $25,000 for the relief of
the sufferers in Japan and have also
decided that supplies of Canadian
food-stuffs and clothing donated, or
purchased with money donated for
relief work, will be transported free
over the Company's rail and steamship lines. President E. W. Beatty
made this announcement while making a tour over the Company's lines
in the West with a party of directors.
He added that this action had been
taken because of tho reports of tho
intense hardships due to the disaster,
and notwithstanding the faot that
the Company had lost heavily by the
catastrophe.
The following editorial recently
appeared in the Windsor "Border
Cities Star": A recent cargo of silk,
en route from China to New Yerk,
was shipped via Vancouver and the
Canadian Pacific Railroad and crossed the St. Lawrence to Ogdensburg,
New York, instead of being sent
across the United States from San
Francisco. The incident offers something for Canadians to think about.
It proves what a splendid servict
the Canadian Pacific offers In its
rail and steamship lines. In a country like Canada, transportation is all
essential, and the way the Canadian
Pacific has carried on, in spite of
the business difficulties which began with the war and are not yet
smoothed out, is a credit to the nation which conceived it >
'Again, the incident calls attention
to Canada's splendid gateway to the
East. Although China is in a chaotic
political condition just now, the
huge Oriental nation offers wonder.
Jul trade chances In tho future. No
nation is better placed for getting ita
share of this business than Canada,,

Noted artists, famous moving picture directors and
expert scenic photographers, like thousands of
tourists, have succumbed to the lure of the innumerable
beauties of Banff and the Canadian Pacific Rockies.
Artists in increasing numbers each year spend the summer on the trail in the mountains transferring these
beauties to canvas. For seventeen years Carl Rungius,
celebrated painter of wild animals in their native haunts,
has been a regular visitor to Banff. Now he lives there
most of the year and has built his own bungalow and
studio. In 1921 Rungius won the $1,000 Altman prize,
but, being foreign born, was disqualified, whereupon the
National Academy of Design bought the painting for
$1,000 and it now hangs In the Corcoran Art Gallery,
Washington.
Belmore Browne, artist, author, explorer and conqueror
of Mt. McKinley, 20,300 feet, lives in his own bungalow-
studio in Banff the year round except when exhibiting
In New York. He and Rungius both study the mountain
goats, sheep, deer and boar in their wilderness homes
and paint them and their majestic scenic backgrounds.
Richard M. Kimbel, landscape, painter, has spent two
summers in Banff and is painting at Lake O'Hara, near
Lake Louise, and last year W. Langdon Kihn lived a
month on the Stoney Indian reservation making pastel
portraits of the big chiefs, little papooses, squaws and
guides. Leonard M. Davis, who paints wonderful
landscapes in Alaska and the Canadian Rockies with a
palette knife, has joined the Banff art colony and expects
to make his winter home In near-by Calgary.
The lure of Canada's Switzerland drew John Singer
Sergeant, R, A., to beautiful Lake O'Hara, In the heart
of tne Great Divide, and with his easel planted in the
white and pink heather of an Alpine meadow 6,600 feet
above sea level the world renowned painter devoted tea
days to painting this exquisite jade-green lake and the
towering mountains in which It la cupped. Charles W.
Simpson, R. C. A„ of Montreal; Oliver Dennett Orover:
of Chicago; Philip R. Goodwin, Edward Potthast and
Albert Groll of New York and many other painters of
note have found inspiration In this scenic wonderland.
As for those humbler artists, the tourists with cameras,
they are to be seen snapshotting everywhere In the
bungalow camps, by the lakeside and along the trails
making beautiful pictures which inspire their envious
frlcndB to visit Banff and do likewise.
The people of British Columbia
through ilit Government rave sent tbe
stricken citizens of Japan a gift of
$16,000 worth uf shingles and lumber. A special warrant was passed
for   this   amount.

By    nn     I mperlal    Daughter    of    the
Empire,
Sunday next Is Trafalgar Day—one
of the great days in Britain's history. So 1 woul|d like to draw your
attention to the necessity of keeping
to the fore the glorious memory of
tho makers of our British Empire.
There Is a danger of forgetting the
past, but wo cannot dig too deeply
int0 our historlo past. The lessons
of tho post mean our security In the
future, and Britons everywhtre should
remember and note the great days
in our history. Such memories keep
allve the spirit of patriotism, Patriot-
Ism is more than a sentiment ; It is
a conviction hosed upon a comprehension of the duties of a citizen
and a determination loyally to perform such duties. Thtrefore, Nelson
at Trafalgar taught us that devotion
to duty. His signal : England expects that every man this day will
do his duty. Today that great and
glorious message should read: The
British Empire expects ever man to
do his duty. This duty means to
stand shoulder to shoulder, firm In
the faith that our British Empire
has no equal. For it stands for
freedom,   liberty,   justice   and   peace.
Then 'let us start from today to
think more of our Empire than we
ever 6\\ before,, and let u« make un
our minds that the British Empire
shall stand, and ,be a guiding light
to follow and make our Empire a
better pOacQ to live In.
Our Empire, the land of the free.
Our  hearts,   our  hands,    are    all   for
thee;
Stand,  Canadians, /Irmly stand,
'Round   the   Flag   of   our   Motherland.

H has probably been within the experience of few, If any, of thoso
men who went east from Agassiz, to
participate in cuttle round-up and
branding opt;atlons. This interest-
experience fell to my lot at the latter   end   of   last   momh.
The cattle, about TiOO head of btef
stock, had to bo brought from the
range, situated some 14 miles away,
by road, from the Alberta ranch on
which  I  am  located.
On the first day out, two of tho
riders went up via the road, while
the rest just followed the creek; it
being only a matter of 9 miles that
way. After a hard day's i Iding In
the hills wo rounded up lflB head,
mid arrived with them at the home
ranch at t*:30 p.m., very tired, and
hungry as Lords.
The next morning we wore up at
4:3» R.iu. and by 5:30 were on our
way again. We stayed up on the
range that night. On tho following
morning we awok0 to find that a
yearling steer had been killed by u
bes«   and   half   eaten.
According to men familiar with
such incidents, the method of killing
by a bear Is as follows : The beust
runs alongside the animal chosen for
its meal, fastens ono hind paw Into
tho victim's flank, ono into the shoulder, and with the other paw reaches
around and pulls tbe doomed beast's
nose, and by a sudden bracing breaks
Its neck, and, Incidentally, tears the
shoulder   nnd   flank.
On tho day following- the rest of
th»   steers   had   been   gathered.
The range on which the cattle had
roamed all spring and summer was
extensive. hiMy and brushy, so that
the   round-up   took  seven   days.
On the morning of Sept. 28th the
herd was taken from the pasture to
the corrals, These are three in number, each conntcting with the other.
In the last corral is a chute ; but of
that   I   will   speak   later.
The whole heiid were driven into
the latter oorral and from there the
calves and yearlings were separated
from  tho  older  cattle,
The method known ns cutting out
was as follows: A number of cattle
were driven from corral 3 Into corral S, whioh Is tiulte a bit smaller
than 1 or 3, and moreover is built
In the form of a circle. It is callel
the roping corral. A roper stands In
the middle and his rope will reach
an   animal   anywhere   In   that   corral.
From corral 2, the yeai lings and
calvos were driven back Into numbe
3, nnd the older animals into num
$er l. This went on until all tho
young stock was separated from the
older.
The calves were next separated
from the yearlings. Wo then had:
Vfearllngs in number 3, calves In
number 2, and the remainder of the
herd  In   number 1.
And the noise! Each beast seemed to bo doing- its best to bellow
louder than the next one. Then suddenly, silence. Glorious silence ton
perhaps half a minute. Then a calf
would bawl. Off would go the whole
herd, doing their best to make up
for  the lost time.
At 1 p.m. w© started branding operations. Three operations had to be
carried out on each calf. Firstly, the
hide on left cheek was cut in suoh
a way that the strip would hang'
down and heal Into u wattle. Tho
next, branding. The brand, a quarter |
circle under 7 being burned onto the
ribs on the left side. Lastly,inocu-
lation against "blackleg." This particular operation was allotted to me,
One c.c. of Blackleg Filtrate being
injected Into tho left shoulder of
the  calf.
The spring calves wera easily
handled by one rlderj, The "cow-
puncher" would rooe a calf by the
neck and haul it into corral 3 from
corral 2. These young calves were
easily thrown and hold down by a
couple of men. It was the Fall cal-
vs  that gavo  us  the  hardest  work.
Those repufred to bo roped hy two
riders, One would rope by the nock
and tho other by the hind legn. Tho
calves fequlrid three husky men to
hold them down. Sometimes It would
kick tho rope from off its Ugs. The
rider who had the calf by the neck
would allow tho calf to run and
when near the end of the rope would
turn his horse suddenly in the opposite direction. This would throw
the calf, and before it could recoved
Its breath we were piled onto the
unfortunate youngster. Kven so, the
tears of flesh and clothing bort evidence of several  hard  fought battles.
Thore Is a great deal of dlffertnco
in handling beasts bom on the open
unngo to handling those born In dairy
hcrdH. They are stronger, and added
to this is tho strongth horn of
fright
Wo handled HO calves that after
noon.
On tho following morning we dehorned 100 yearlings. This brings
us   to   tho   chute,   mentioned   earlier.
The chuto Is a funnel-shaped pen,
Its entrance Is via a gate opening
Trorn corral 2, at which point It la
nboui. 8 fott wide. At a Point 12
foot from tho gato It narrows, so ns
to allow only ono animal along at a
time,     tt  Is  that width  for about  20

feet high, built of 3 x 10. a B.

can be raised or lowered at will, is

on and do his dirty work, Snip !
Off comes one horn. There is a
bellow of pain and fright and the
oi;eature shakes with the frantic
beast's struggles. The head is pulled around and off comes the other
horn. The wounds are dabbed with
pine tar, the gate swung opon^ and
the dehorned animal beats It as hard

When the horns are cut off, two
streams of blood shoot, out from each
wound ; thus tho four If us working
at the gate had our faces and
shirts  covered  with  blood.
A great deal of time Is spent in
getting the animals up to the gate,
as they art pretty well soared and
are not easily handled. Wo started
at 7 a.m. and worked until 2 p.m.
without a break.
