programme, delivers itself in this wise
as tu the duty of this province! "British Columbia should adopt a similar
policy. That policy should be big and
broad enough to gird British Colum

and railway.-, north, suuth, mist und

cover the north eud and west coast

one, two or three new lines through
the Velluwhead Puss; it should bring
a line down the Colum bia,through the
Okanagan and down to the coast; it
should compel Jim Hill to finish hit
Bimilkameen undertakings; the C. P.
II. should be extended from tho Nicola

built from Kort George to Vancouver;
tbe Boundary and Koutenay should
have increased facilities. No policy

cognizance of iis  value in building
up the   fabric ol   local progression
and the work that has already been
done has  in no  small small measure been  responsible for tiie prosperous outlook for the coining season,     Thu   Board's   mission is in
tin- capacity of a working commit-
tee lo probe  into every question of
direct antl  indirect interest to tlie
district, and lo assist llie local representatives in the federal as well
as provincial house, in pressing all
legitimate claims.   The question of
Kevelsloke   becoming   a   railroad

necessity of   Inking   ud vantage  of

better   junction    point   for   other
transcontinental lines antl brunches
can be found.    The Board oi Trade
have forwarded tu tlie head official-,
of   the   C.N.R, u most convincing
list  of   statistics   and   descriptive
details   of   lho   desirability of the
Culumbia Rivei   route for tlie Canadian   Northern   from   Edmonton
via     Kevelsloke    to    the   COllSt, the
soundness of the arguments in its
fuvoi and line comparisons with
oilier and less feasible routes, making tbe selection a matter of but
slight difficulty. Then again the
construction of tlie Arrowhead and
Kootenay railroad frum the south
will, when completed, form u valuable connecting link with the
Crow',- Nest.       Now    that the lliin

And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
ul fiom . l one time—sufficient to lust fur a long- period.
Naturally tlicy nre unxious to procure a flour of the kind best
adapted to lengthy storage
There are two important reasons why TURITY FLOUR
possesses these qualities. One is that it is made entirely from
Manitoba Hard Wheat. Tlio other lies in the fact that the careful
milling necessAn to produce "Purity." absolutely excludes all
low-grade particles ol lho wheat bury. It's the high grade
Manitoba Jliird Wheat Flour that keeps—stands bnge^t storage.
__       That's "Purity."
^C       ~"""\7TS*'' "Purity" flour may cost a little more,
but is more than worth the difference.
Try it. Watch results both for quality
and yield.

Creditable Essay on the Dominion by Local Student
The following paper written by Mies
Nellie Beck of this city was rend before
tbe meeting last week of Epworth
League ol the Methodist C bur oh, on
their lit*-> try nigh', and as a very
compreli' naive cssh.v is worthy ol
iiiiic'' credit:
"lor many years a deep longing lias
filled onr hearts for a fu ler knowledge
of our land and this paper is written
confident in the belief that there
are many who Bhare with me this
tliirBt for knowledge ol the land in
which we dwell.
Tbe Dominion ol Canada occupies a
position ehielly in the north temperate zone, though extending north to
the Arctic regit us.
The I'Utliern boundary touches the
40th decree ,,[ latitude, but in On-
tiirui it reaobes'aa (ar south us the 42d
degree, the northern coast is some
2000 miles north ol this most souther,
ly poiut.
Neither are tliese northern regions
barren wasle as is loinotimes supposed
for wheat can be grown 1400 miles ol
its southern boundary,
In the year 1888 u special committee
ol the Caiuidiuii Senate entered into a
thorough examination uf the available
information bearing on the question
of agricultural, mineral, and timber
resources of that portion uf thin great
uorth laid lying norlh of the Saskatchewan watershed, east of the Rocky
mountains and 'west of tbe H idson
Alter weighing and sifting all of the
information, the committee arrived at
tbe following cm.elusions!
1 'J'tint the jircat region north of
the Saskatchewan watershed and
drained ly the Athabasca, I'ence,
Liartl, a. tl Slave livers, also the McKenzie vailii, possessed soil and
climatic nndititms tbat gave it adadt-
abiiit.i lor settlement and cultivation
2. 'lint 1 in re were i.i thU region
3000 square miles of land adapted 10
the growth ul wheat; 407,000 square
sifiiaie miles (including the wheat
area) adapted lo the growth of barley
aud oats; 054,000 ecpiare miles (include
ing wheat and barley area) adapted to
the growth of potatoes and turuips.
This region also contains vast
stretches of prairie and forest land.
A bare commencement only bas
been made in bringing the wheat
lands of the Canadian Northwest under cultivation and yet the export of
wheat reaches about 40,000,000 bushels per year.
As settlement extends northward it
is It.uud that the rigor of the climate
does not increase.
At Prince Albert, 300 miles north of
the latitude ol Winnipeg, the wheat
crop is leps liable to the injury trum
frost than in Southern Manitoba and
the yield is heavier.
This great northwest region is rich
in coal, gold, silver, copper, iron and
petroleum, and the forests are ol
immense value.
The physical features are common
to the continent yet in Some respects
they are strictly Canadian. Tbe
grandeur of her mountains, her numerous lakes and her turbulant rivers.
It is said thai Canada contains one-
half of lhe fresh water of the globe.
Euough cannot tie said ol her exhaust-
less water supply, especially after read
ing of poor drowth etrickeu India.
Kipling came tu Canada in wiuter
and visited the cily of ljuelec when
the snow w»- piled high, and in bin
writings since he has called our laud
"The Lady of the Snows," but il he
would come here in the summer he
might call it "The Lady of the Lakes."
ff all of our lakes wery in one,
the L'nited Kingdom could be pieced
the rem and still retain her isolated
position, nnd England's great navy
would have plenty of mom to move
about without a collision. It all our
streams aud rivers were one continuous steam it would re.icb IJ times
iiniiiiiii the globe.
It ie true that Canada is still iu ber
infancy, as far ss her possibilities are
concerned and yet her progress during
tbe last century has beeu great.
Tbe total population of Canada is
less than that of London, yet the pro
grass made has been substantial and
rapid, and complies favorably with
many nations of tbe old world.
Tbe great Yukon territory is one of
tbe farthest north and most remote
from the centres of Canadian civilization. Its marvellous development in
so short a time is a guarantee of, the
permanency and possibilities of its
Prior to 1896 tbe Yukon was actually unknown and popularly regarded
as s region of perpetual cold and devoid of vegetation or value.
Since 189fi eome 1110,000,000 worth
of gold bai been taken out, and yet
this 1 "presents hut the scratchings of a
permanent sonr    ol wealth.
As the other mi eral deposits of the
Yukon, one good authority writes
that copper will demand the attention
ol that territory nt no great day,
ni hough the location of the main de-
p sit has nut yet been discovered.
This country, it. goes without say-
inn, Will never be pie-eminent as an
aiHctiluiral dlstriot however favorable
the climate.
The native races uf Canada are
divided into two pnrtB. (1) The
Indian proper. (2) The esq inio. The
latter inhabit the whole northern hor-
der oi the continent and ill" adjacent
islands, and because of tlieir uiirthern
position hue been little disturbed or
effected by their contact with tbe
whiles. Though scattered over su
great an extent ol country and divided
into main tribes, ull speak one language. The Indians to tlie south of
them aro also broken up into many
tribeii but among them many langugee
and dialects are spoken. The connection of tbe various languages afford
the best means of classifying the
tribes. The names of some ol the
priucip tribes are tho Tinneh, Algun-
tjiiin, l! 1. kfnot, Assinibuines(a branch
of the fi iix if Dakota), Morons,
In i|iiiiis -ml Salish lu Newfoundland
a race named Iteothuks was Ion nil at
ils discovery, but bas since beconio
extinct. Die name "Indian" was first
applied by the European, uuder the
mistaken idea that America formed
part uf India. In Hull there ite c
12ir),0 0 natives aud Indians and 4,000
Ksquiiutis. This being one-loriieth of
the entire population of Canada.
The papulation ol Canada according
to the oenBUS of 1901 is 1,370,000. The
population of Newfoundlun at the
same date was 220,000.
In 1850 there was 70 miles of railroad in operation. In 1001 'here was
18,000 miles. To ibe norih of the
railway region there are vast Iracts of
country which have no better means

politically distinct from the D .miniou

is its timber and fishing, cod fishing
being the most important. The world

The fact that it ie possible to live
and grow ri h in ths Yukon territory
over l,."i00 milee nurth uf the most
southern part, of Canadti, has been a
revelation to Canadians.
The fur trade lias always occupied a
prominent place in the histoiy of
Canada, and in the early days ol
French rule the industry wss of great
impoitance, and directly or i .directly
furnished occupation tu nearly all the
inhabitants ul New Kruuco.
Much ol the exploration of the
countiy was done by the adventurous
and hardy fur traders.

The skins ul chief commercial importance are those of the bear budger,
beaver, fox, mink, ermine, marten,
muskrat, otter,raccoon, wolf.wolverine,
but tbe rarest and highest price is the
skin of the silver fox. This animal is
very rare and hard tu get and its pelt
wben in prime condition often brings
11000 to the trapper.
The aim mil sale of Canadian furs in
London and New York City amounts
to more than $1,500,000. Some of the
other animals found in Canada are the
musk-ox, antelope, mountain goat of
several varieties, star nosed mole, deer,
cu'.ger, lynx, mountain lion three

and tbe Newfoundland dog.none ol th •

ut them appear 10 be tinsuitid for

Although many of the animals have
