The ".Moose Mountains"—a common name applied to one of nature's
favored beauty spots—consist of an
irregular cluster of undulating hills of
glacial drift, which comprise an area
oE about six hundred square miles ot
territory. Rising lo a height ol! from
four to six hundred feet Ihey form a
consplcous elevation that is visible for
many miles along the lower lying surrounding level prairies. Within their
beautiful weli-wooded valley, and between their numerous equally well-
wooded hills, lie scores of fresh water
lakes, many of which an- teeming
with fish of various kinds. These,
also, are tlie liaunls of myriads of wild
water fowl, and oilier birds of many
species, that makes them their habitat

that is related in lhe following narrative.
Ii was coming lo the close of a hot
bright day toward tlie latter end of
.tune, jn the summer of 1885, when a
solitary rider, well mounted on a roan
broncho, drew rein and halted his fagged steed on the peak of one of (lie
highest hills that form the south-west
projection of the mountains. From
bis elevation the rider commanded a
wide view of the apparently boundless prairies, which seemed to lose

gradually blended wiih the blue or tlie
horizon, and thus vanished beyond his
range of vision. The field glasses
that he (rained on the seemingly limitless plain, revealed no break nor object ihal would indicate human habitation. With a puzzled look lie turned his glasses eastward along the
range of hills. After a close inspection of tlie skyline, he detected
against the deeper blue of the eastern
sky a faint tissue film of smoke Unit
seemed to be,Issuing from, or beyond,
a fringe of trees visible along the
edge of a transverse range of hills
some distance away. With a relieved expression depicted on his countenance he tinned his horse in Lhe direction indicated by this column of
smoke ami proceeded on his journey.
While the place from winch this
smoke issued might nol prove to be
ilic location of Ihe Indian Agency,
which was his objective as Lhe end
of his first day's trip, he inferred that
it indicated the vicinity of some human habitation where he might receive accommodation for the night, or
get some information as would direct
him to the agency. it was Ids purpose, when he left Fort Qu'Appelle
that morning to rest his horse for a
day al tlie Indian Agency, and there,
also, secure additional supplies to hist
him for lhe balance of his journey to
North Dakota, for which country he
was heading, and where he had intended to join some of ids people who
had made Ihelr homes there.
As he approached the bluff, he followed a dim trail that led for some
distance along its edge, which finally
brought him through an opening in
the trees. As he emerged on lhe
other,side oE lhe bluff, his horse came
to a sudden stop, when lie almost collided with another horse and rider
cantering towards him. Quickly recovering himself from tho surprise of
ibis sudden meeting, 4»' checked up
his horse and faced ihe new arrival
witli alert composure. That the surprise was mutual was evident from
the altitude of the new arrival, who
sat firmly in his saddle, bridle rein
in the left hand, while the right tightly gripped a Colt's revolver. Still
having il slung in the holster suspended from a belt around the waist,
the stranger, without speaking, intently watched tlie movements of the
traveller. lie, in turn, appraised the
youthful rider in front of him, who,
sitting astride a spirited mount held
well in hand, was, as he surmised, a
youth oC about eighteen years of age.
He was dressed in riding boots and
breeches, above which he wore an Indian tanned buckskin jacket, frilled
and beaded as such garments usually
are. On his head a gray slouch hat,
pulled well over the face, fairly well
concealed Ihe upper part of a youthful
and pleasing countenance.
The strained science that followed
ihis sudden meeting, during which
both riders mutually 'regarded each
other, was, after a few * moments,
broken by a sweet feminine voice thai
both thrilled and astonished the
traveller as it asked: "Excuse me, sir,
but did you notice a bunch of horses
along the trail as you came along?
'Horse rustlers' are reported lo be
ranging lho country and father is anxious to have his horses rounded up
for tlie night, I have ranged the hills
around here, bul have found no trace
ol them." As MlOSC words were spoken, tin' right hand that, gripped the
revolver was automatIcallj transferred from lis lain lo the bridle rein.
Both astonished and embarrassed
at this unexpected meeting on a lone-
ly trull with a young lady rider.
dressed In male attire, lie mumbled
an awkward apology and replied: "Oh.
I beg your pardon, madame; there are
no horses to he seen anywhere on the
open country tit ihe west, nor in nny
Other direction SO far as 1 could see,
even with (he aid of my field glasses."
Then he offered: "if there js anything
I can do to assist you in tlie search
for them, I shall be pleased to do it."
"(Hi. lliank you," she said, "bul. I
think I would rather nol. I shall turn
back ami range those hills to the
south, and If they are not there I shall
follow lhe Halt from there home, and
report my failure lo (ind lliein to
fallier." Then reining her horse In
Ihe direction indicated, she turned in
her saddle as If lo give a parting
greeting In the astonished traveller.
As she did so, she seemed to notice
for the first time the fagged and tired
appearance of both horse and rider.
She then turned her horse around and
said: "Your horse seems tired. Vou
must have travelled a long distance
"I smarted from Fort Qu'Appelle this
morning. My name Is MacKae, Ronald MacRae.     1 have   just   received
my discharge from the Canadian army,
Willi which I had been serving as
scout wiih tbe General Middletou
Brigade in the Kiel Rebellion. I am
on my way lo North Dakota, where
some of my people live, I was heading for the Moose Mountain Indian
Agency, where I intended to spend
the night and gel additional supplies
lo continue tlie trip, bul it seems I
jnissed the trail, If you can direct
"lie there I shall feel grateful."
"There is a trail leading ir* the
agency from my home. Follow this
trail and il will lead you lo I lie house
about iwo miles east of here, From
Ihere fattier will show you the trull
lo the agency." with this parting
instruction she turned her horse, and,
waiving him a parting greeting, she
set spurs to her horse's Hanks and
galloped off in the direction of the
hills lo the south to resume her
search for the horses.
For ii few minutes he Blood watching her as she cantered over Ihe rolling ground till she dropped out of
sight half a mile away beyond Ihe
brow of a hill. Her graceful riding.
her skill in handling her horse, as well
as tier Ingenuous manner, attracted
both Ids fancy ami admiration. For
some lime lie stood hesitating and
undecided as to which course lo follow, tie was seized with a strong
urge lo pross ids assisiance. The
fact that "horse rustlers" were reported lo he in (he vicinity made him
apprehensive of Lho dangers thai
might be lurking In tin shelter of any
bluff, lie knew the desperate character and criminal tendencies of such
outlaws, and was accordingly con-
j scions of the dangers that threatened
a defenseless woman, ranging (he
country alone, when such bandits are
roaming at large. He* fell the urgency of following her to afford her
protection In case of need. Finally,
Impressed by hei» refusal to accept his
assistance and satisfied witli her skill
in horsemanship, as well as her independent self-assurance Jn her knowledge of the country, he decided lo
follow Ihe trail leading io the house.
Travelling leisurely along the trail,
he, in a short lime, came to tlie shore
of a lake of clear water wiih a well
defined shorn line and sandy beaches!
The land and surrounding hills were
heavily wooded. lie turned to his
left and took a well beaten trail that
followed tbe windings of the lake
shore; Following this trail a short
distance he came lo a comparatively
pretentious house built of peeled
logs, and set on a stretch of rising
ground a short distance bark from lhe
lake of which It commanded a clear
I view. The ground In front was elear-
I ed ot all underbrush and fixed up as a
| grassy lawn. A few shade trees of
birches and poplars stood here and
there on Ihe lawn in their irregular
poshions of original growth in tlio
forest. The rustic log dwelling had
a verandah extending the full length
of its fronl. ll was bull! so as to
harmonize with the rusticity of the
house itself, both of which were evidently built with a view to comfort
and Iiominess, and much skill aud
good laste were shown in their construction. These details were taken
in hy the rider as he followed the path
leading to tlie front of the house.

embodied in Mountie, veteran hero
of the wilderness and new leader of
the Chateau Frontenac dog-team at
Mountie is a husky, in other words,
! :;rt wolf and his wolf strain shows
ii.plf in his handsome head, with its
' Iv.irp ears and nose, its steel-hard,
laming eyes, its gleaming fangs and
its i*re:it ruff of fur. He is a dark grey
-hit, nlmo.rt one hundred weighl of
nvjiclc. bone and sinew, ferocity,
grim determination and unwavering
fidelity. He was born away up within
th.? Arctic Circle, at Lnc-du-llrochct,
bought in 1919, when very young, by
Sergeant Grennan of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and trained by
him. .He put in nearly five years as a
member ot that famous force, running
patrols on His Majesty's Service
with the red-coated heroes of the
The journey from Le Pas, in
Northern Manitoba, where he was
purchased, to Quebec, a distance of
well over two thousand miles, was an
exciting and extraordinary experience
for Mountie. He spent Christmas
Day at Winnipeg, where the kind-
hearted officials of the Canadian
Pacific offered him seasonal fare,
which he did not like much, except as
a dessert following a mea' of his accustomed fish and biscuits. He made
friends with the baggage men, who
were more than sorry to part with
him.   At Montreal, he had a day's
rest and there adjusted himself com-
paratively easily to the strange turmoil of the great city. His driver,
Arthur Beauvais, an Indian from
Caughnawaga, took him for a short
stroll through the streets, where he
created a tremendous sensation. And
no wonder, for Beauvais says he is
without exception the finest husky he
has ever seen, while the Mounted
Police report that he has always been
greatly admired wherever he has
been, both for his appearance and
his capacities.
Now he is nt the Chateau Frontenac, working comparatively easily
at giving visitors a ride and is one of
the big attractions of winter-time

..    .       PANEL  AND  BASE   	
Having completed the tuner to this
point, set it aside and construct the
upright panel. This panel may be a
piece of wood about quarter-inch in
thickness. An ordinary packing box
board will do, providing it is perfectly   d:y.     Bore   the   hole   for  the   two
switches and. contacts and make holes
for   the   four   binding   posts,   two   on
each side. The best way to do this
right Is to make a plan of the panel
on a piece of paper; measuring every
liule right. When this is done, place
the drawing on the panel and bore
through paper and panel. The two
holes on each corner on the left will
be for your binding posts; one for
the aerial at the top, and tho lower
for the ground. The two on tho
right will be for the phones. Tho
switch contacts should be just close
enough that the switch arm will not
drop between the contacts but also
far enough apart that the switch arm
can be set so as to touch only one
contact at a time. The telephone
binding posts should <be of the set
screw  type.
Having constructed the several
parts Just mentioned and mounted
them on the wood base, one is ready
to connect the taps to the switch
contacts and attach the other necessary  wires.
Scrapo tho cotton insulation from
the loop ends of the sixteen taps as
well as from the ends of the two
single taps coming from the first and
last turns. Fasten tho hare ends of
these wires to the proper contacts* by
inserting loop between the two nuts
and screwing them tight. Ono should
be careful not to cut or break any
of the loop ends. Now take a piece
of copper wire, connect on switch to
binding post "ground," then" connect
from this wire another wire to one
of the phone' binding post ; th!
switch being the on*> with 1 tap between each tap. Connect from tho
other switch to binding post "Aereal"
connect another wire on this to the
crystal. Prom tho detoctor connect
with another piece qf oopper wire
to your other binding post of your
phones. ^ Thjs concludes tl.Qt wiring
for thin set.

j est map of Canada find a slender line
creeping straight out from the wheat
lands toward Hudson Bay—a gleaming
line of double steel rails determined
on getting down lo salt water in the
least possible dislance.     You'll hear
that the Hudson Bay route Is impractical.     So was tho route via Panama
impractical—once.      There are  bogs';
to be crossed and harbors to he dredg
ed and beacon lights to set on many
an unfriendly headland, but  the sea
tides run  free long enough in every
year lo let  the ships in from the Atlantic and out again with their cargoes of grain.     When you aro trying
lo shorten the land haul that sets the
distance you   are   from   the   central

W. Beatty, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, declared that
"what Canada is suffering from is
lack of men, lack of capital and lack
of those forward policies which will
enable the country to realize within
a reasonable time its own manifest
destiny." He added that he did not
believe in "exaggerated whisperings
or in any statements which are calculated to destroy the belief of Canadians in their own country."
Captain S. Robinson, C.B.E.,
R.N.R., commanding the Canadian
Pacific liner "Empress of Canada,"
was invested with the C.B.E. by Sir
Harry Armstrong, British Consul-
General at New York, when his ship
arrived there on January 25th, prior
to setting out on her great world
cruise. Captain Robinson also received thc freedom of the city of
New York. These honors were in
recognition of his gallant work
when commanding the Canadian
Pacific liner "Empress of Australia" at Yokohama, at the time of the
Japanese disaster.
According to Canadian Pacific officials, immigrants from Europe
who spend a few hours in Montreal
on their way west are re-discovering
America—or rather Canada—at a
great rate. Some days ago there
were eighty Scandinavians drumming their heels in the big waiting-
rooms at Windsor Station, bored to
tears. Then one of them suddenly
discovered that the Province of Quebec, unlike Sweden, is not "dry." The
rush of the Danes on Alfred s England was as nothing compared to
that with which thc delighted Scandinavian gentlemen emptied that
waiting-room. So excellent did they
find the beer that they did not show
up again till train-time, when they
announced unanimously, though
with slight difficulty, thut "Canada
bane one fine country."
To be stranded In a atrange city
with no worldly assets but a suit of
dress-clothes and yet to come out of
thc adventure victorious is to
achieve something. Joe and Bill arrived in Montreal a few nights ago,
their baggage consisting of the
clothes they wore, two dress suits,
an adequate quantity of the needful nnd an enthusiastic determination to sec Life with a capital L.
When they woke on the morning
after, they found that someone had
relieved them of everything they
por.r.essed except the dress suits
they had slept in, and which they
hml worn for the previous night's
In this predicament they appealed
to the authorities at the Canadian
Pacific Windsor Station, for work
whereby to earn enough to take
hem out of the wicked city. Sympathetic officials put them on tho
snnw-shovclling gang. And here
these two stout fellows, in their
dress suits, Joe with his feet wrap-
fied in sacking to keep them warm,
shored heartily for four days, earning the price of their tickets hack to
the little old home town. So once
more fiction and the movies are
