Tlu' above is the title ol » publication recently issued hy Uio Canadian
Pacific Railway Co. Tlw booklet contains all the Information concerning
climate, soils und products ot lhe
different sections of Manitoba, Sas-
t'utchcwaii, Alberta and British Columbia.
In the foreword it savs:
"Tho nineteenth century belonged
to the United States—tho twentioth
belongs in Canada," Thus spoko ono
of the clearest thinkers in America
several years a^o, Canada is a country of great distances and Immense
possibilities. Extending from llie Atlantic to the Pacilic, it is more than
equal in si/e to the United States,,
and, in fact, covers over 3,745,000
square miles, one-twelfth of the land
of the earth.
The completion Of lhe .Canadian Pacific Railway from ocean to ocean,
through Canadian territory, first disclosed the real capabilities of tho
Western plains, and the favorable nature of tlieir climate. Time and the
course of events have widened the
scope of that disclosure* and opened
a wheat field with a productive
power equal to a world supply. Tills
was a discovery of positive fact tliat
compelled attention and dissipated
doubt, and the stream of. settlement
immediately began to flo,w. Since'
then it has been demonstrated that
Western Canada, with iw tremendoufS
dimensions and immense material
wealth, presents to lhe liomeseeker
the greatest opportunity of the age.
The potential wealth in the rich
soil of Western Canada has attracted
from all quarters of the globe men
and women tired of the impoverished
surrounding which arc tbo unfortunate
complement of many of the populous
centres of modern civilization,
ond anxious, while there is yet time,
to secure to.tlieiiist'lves and their families a share of"the prosperity
whicli the boundless West holds in
store who seek it Ami tliey have
not come in vain, for to every willing
worker Western Canada has given
freely and abundantly. Notwithstanding, however, thc rapidity of settlement, the West is but yol upon tbe
fringe ot greater tilings, and oul of
its 170,000,000 acres of wheat land,
only about 10,000,000 wen* undoi
cultivation to wheal in 1018.
Western Canada is now mi beyond
the experimental stage, it is a coun
try that has lieen tried by the most
exacting test to whieh a new country
can he put, and has come triumphant
ly through tho ordeal. Then* can be j
no doubt now that tlte settlors who
are so rapidly pi opting the groal
West of Canada, ami making tboii
homes there, are destined to bo the
wheat producers fm the British Emp
ire.
In regard to this district the booi
let states.

Cranbrook is the commercial cantor

tbe many Industries tributary; (or

somo 25 saw mills. The continuance i
ot this industry is assured for many

The comparison of reiall food prices in England ami Canada gives material which should prove food tor
thought to Canadians. England is
one of thc most congested centres ol
population in thc world, probably 75
per cent, of her food has to he imported from every corner of the globe.
England's population Is 018 per
tsijitare mile, ' 'anadn's only 1.03.
Can/urn grows, or should produce,
every article of food her people need
except Imported luxuries. Vet tho
cost of living has pute up much faster in Canada ihan in Kngland, while,
tho ordinary articles ot lood cost
much moro today in Canada under
hin'i tariff than they do in England
under free food.
According u, thc latest English
Board of Trade statistics, bread in
London, England, costs 2.825 cents
a pound. In Ottawa the price Is -1
cents a pound, nearly twice as much.
Yet the British loaf is largely made
from Canadian grain, shipped six on
Hcvcn thousand miles.
Medium roast beef iti London costs
23 cents a pound. An Ottawa butcher would charge 11 cents for the
.same. Prime "Colonial" heel costs
the Londoner 15 cents and the very
best Iiriiish btef -il cents a pound
Sirloin steal, in Ottawa costs 21 cts
a pound. The Canadian duty on bed
is three cents a pound.
"Colonial" mutton in London shops
costs from 5.70 to 15 cents a pound
Mutton al Ottawa retails at 20 els
The Canadian dutiy on mutton is 3
cents a pound,
Coot! quality bacon is sold in ot
tawa at li."> cents a pound. The
Londoner only pays Iron, |!1 to 2<K
cents for the very besl. 'the Canadian duty is two cents u pound.
Canadian and other colonial hiitlet
retails in London at -7 cents a lb.
It eosis an Oii.iuan 30 nnd 32 cents
a pound to bul ler bis bread. The
Canadian dutj is four cents a pound.
Canadian cheese sells in London at
I" cents a pound. In Canada, where
it la made, ii retails for IS to 20
cents. Tbe Canadian duty is three
cents.
Flour retails in London for 2i cts.
a pound. In Canada,>where the
wheat is grown ami made, flour retails for lj cents a pound. The
Canadian duty is sixty cents a Imr-
rcl.
Granulated siiuttr costs r» cents a
pound iu Ottawa The; Londoner
gets the same quality for I cents a
pound. Tl.i- Canadian duty is $1.08
per hundred pounds.
Potatoes in Loudon cost 1.07 cents
per pi lund. I !i (it I awa t hey cost
i"i cents 'lie- Canadian duty is
twenty cents a bushel.
No argument can offset these (acts.
Canada mow, or manufactures all
these    articles ami exports    a      good
many ol them. Importation Is
checked bv the tariff. The Canadian
consumer has to pay more lor them
at home ihan the retailers chargp for
them iu the greatest eity in the
world where naturally the cost ot
living shouh: be higher than in the
smaller Canadian cities, apart from
the cost of shipping Free food
must mean cheaper food.
A CHANCE Foli NEW ARRIVAL!
Notwithstanding tbe great area ol
this country and tbe diversity ol soil
topography and climate, the number
of breeds of livestock that arc well
established    is   comparatively small.

Miiiard's
Liniment
This is due to a let-well-eoough-alone
policy, but to the refusal of farmers
aud breeders to engage in experiments
and to the wide adaptability of the
breeds wc already have. Very few ot
our breeds of any class ol stock—cattle, horses, hogs'or taeerj—are confined to any limited locality. The most
powerful breed association in the
world are pushing their favorites into
every nook and corner of the continent. Formerly the foreign breeder
found il easy in finding an American
market for his surplus, but compett-
wilh our own breeders has entirely
stopped a great deal of his business.
Americans can produce just as good
livestock as any nation, and each succeeding International Livestock Exposition furnishes more proof.
But the farmers and breeders arc
ready for something better, no matter from whoso pasture it comes.
Breeds of comparatively recent arrival arc having tlieir tryouls now. The
Suffolk horse is an example and the
chances are it has found a place, in
spite of thc competition ol Perchcrou,
Clydesdale, Shire and Belgian- The
Dutch-Belted cattle are an example ot
a less fortunate breed. The National
Dairy -Show has   dropped them from
its classification. Breeders of these
citile say tbey have found a ready
sale for tlicir picturesque animals, but
up to this time the average dairyman
has not taken kindly to the breed.
His ears are open to nothing but
milk records and profits.
At the 1A13 International two
breeds of sheep that had never belore
been seen at the show were on exhib-
tion. They were thc Homney Marsh
and the Exmoors—both English
breeds. These breeds are, so their
backers say, adapted to particular
conditions tbat should assure them a
welcome here. The Roinneys will do
well on lowlands, when: most/ breeds
would be subject to foot troubles.
The Exmoor Horn sheep has been developed in the highlands of Devon uiul
Somerset, where vegetation is coarse
ud sparse. Breeders say they will
tin well where some breeds would
bcaeoely live.
We have places for just such breeds
anil they deserve a fair trial. Thc
lirst Hock Exmoors will he put on a
tarm near Chicago, where vegetation
is not usually sparse and highlands
are scarce.—Country Gentleman.
SHOULD LIMIT BORROWING
Lord Slrathcona's warning tluit
Canadians should be more careful
(ban ever belore ol the position of
ihe Dominion in the financial market
and that greater regard must be paid
to the investor than is always shown
lo him, is one which should not be
disregarded. Canada must have money but only for legitimate.development and enterprise and even then
i a ro should be exercised not to
frighten or weary the old country capitalists by too many and too (relent demands upon them.
It is true, as Lord Strathcona
points out, that the money stringency iu the Dominion came, not from
nlversity, but from prosperity. In
good times there is always a tendency to advocate too rapidly. The
great development ol it he last lew
years has brought into existence industrial enterprises In excess of the
needs of the people; it has given an
impulse to city growth, and in this
way, lias involved public expenditures
which would have formerly been considered stupendous and for all this the
financiers ol Europe had to find tht*
money. They have learned that the
security is flood, hut no man cares
to put all his eggs in one basket, and
though the natural wealth ol the Dominion is incalculable and most of it
remains undeveloped, we nre apt to
forget that money is limited and that
there are other parts of the world
whicli want to borrow as well as ourselves and which can otter sound security,

of saving. Plro whistles were blown
but the (lames bad got too great a
hold. Sympathy is extended to the
proprietors. It is a rcriretuble thing
that little or no insurance covers

hooks, we understand were lost in tho

The story of tho writing of the
"Marseillaise", as told in the "History of the Girondists" by Alpbonse
de Lamartinc about 1817, is fraught
wilh interest. He says: "There
was a young officer of artillery in
garrison at Strasbourg, named Rou-
get de Lisle. He was born at Lons-
le-Saulnier, in the Jura, that country
or reverie and energy, as mountainous
countries always are. This young
mau loved war like a sojdier— the
Revolution like ii thinker." Then
Lamarline tells how much Kouget de
Lisle was in request as a musician,
a poot, and a patriot. The French
Revolution was advancing towards
the frontiers Diehick, an Alsatian
patriot, and his family were his closest friends. One night afler supper
with the Dietricks, "who inspired
his heart, his poetry, ami his music,1*}
Dietrick said Strasbourg was shortly
to have a patriotic ceremony and De
Lisle must he inspired to produce
one of those hymns whicli, convey enthusiasm to the heart of the people.
De Lisle was a dreamer; his bear I
was moved,   his head   heaeed  lie
went staggering lu his lonely chamber endeavoring, by degree's, to find
inspiration in the palpitations of his
citizens heart: ami ou his small clavichord, now composing the air before
the words, nnd now the words
before the air       combined
them so intimately in bis mind, that
he could never tell whieh was first
produced1, the air or the words, so
impossible did he find it to sepcrate
tiie poetry from tho music, ami the
feeling from the impression. He sang
e\crything— Wrote nothing.
"Overcome   by this  inspiration,
his head fell sleeping on his instrument, and he did not awake until
daylight. The song of the overnight
returned to his memory with difficulty, like the recollections oi a dream.
He wrote it down, and then ran to
Dietrick. He found him in his garden  Dietrick called together some
fiiends as loud as himself of music,
and capable of executing De Llsle's
composition. Dietrick's eldest daughter accompanied them, Kouget sang.
At the first verse all countenances
turned pale, at the second tears Unwed, nt lhe last, cnthuslsm burst forth.
Tho hymn of the country was found...
"The new song, executed some days
afterwards at Strasbourg, (lew from
city to city, in every public orchest
rn. Marseilles adapted it to he sung
til Ihe opening and close of the sitting;; of its clubs. The Marseillais
spread it all over France, by singing
it  everywhere on their way.   Whence
the name of Marseillaise  De Lisle
himself, proscribed as a royalist,
heard it and shuddered, as if sounded
on his ears, whilst escaping by some
of the wild passes of tho Alpes.
'•What do they call, lhe hymn'.' he inquired of his guide. "The "Marseillaise," replied the peasant. It was
thus lie learnt the name of his own
work. The arm turned ai(iinsl the
hand Dial  forged it.   The Revolution
  no   longer   recognized   its own
voice!"
TIMES WRITES
UP BRITISH COLUMBIA
London, Dee. 31.—Tho Times includes a Pacific coast supplement today,
anil describes Hritish Columbia's exploration, its early history, including
that of the gold discovesy and its social life. A column is devoted to the
real estate boom and the writer says
that investigation shows that the
commercial situation is substantial'
ly sound and British Columbia summarized as one of thc boundless
hearts. He says nothing is to be deplored in the civic and industrial ac-
tivitlos whicli outrun tho money market, "knowing tho vastness of their
country's undeveloped wealth, they
wait confidently for the recovery of
the financiers of their attack ot nerves."
Agriculture, mining and maiiufaelu
res are discussed at length, Hritish
Columbia's industrial situation being)
summarized as one of boundless raw
material and enormous power. The
comparatively little used lorest
wealth of the province, which wns
formerly described iu It'll, is renewed
iu another column. Three columns
are devoted to a study of lhe effect
of the Panama canal upon shipping,
"a question vitally interesting to the
whole of western Canada."
A special statement of Hritfsb Columbia's probable canal shipping has
been prepared by lhe Canadian minister of customs, showing Vancouver to
arrival of tonnage of 204,053 and departing 1,7811,0.10, and Victoria lo
have 1,852,008 incoming tonnage and
3,188.824 outgoing.
British Columbia finance are exhaustively analyzed. The ports ot Vancouver and Victoria and their trade
are fully pictured and the railroads
are carefully described, tho whole furnishing a remarkably valuable compendium of information about western
Canada, which will be distinctly valuable lo all classes of traders and
merchants.
