Baffiiiland, 100,-  000 years ago, was covered over  wi*h'a'n ice-cap tw0 miles thick, part  of the cap which extended down to  Southern Ontario. Dr. Bell, director of the geological survey, described  recently the National ��������� Science Association in Toronto, how the melting  of this huge load removed the tension from the earth's surface, with  the' result that the land which had  been depressed by the weight, has  been rising above the sea level at  the rate of two feet per century, and  latterly as'rapidly as three feet. Esquimaux sea camps, with, fish-traps  set at big. watermark in the time  of Christ, are now nearly 100 . feet  above the sea- , .  Baffinland is bleak, mountainous  and barren, and black from the lichen on three rocks. But in summer it  is green, and boasts two lakes that  may compare ..with Ontario; Madjuacte  Lake is'120 miles long by '10 wide  ami Netillhvg 140 long and 60 broad.  Three mountain ranges traverse ne  country diagonally, varying from 5-  030 to 8,000 feet high. The island  is 1,000 miles long -by 350 broad.  Dr Bell described his .trip to  Lake MadjuacU, which is 50 miles  from the nearest sea water. He ban  a very bad walk, three men assisting  him with the shelter tent, but he  made some valuable observations.  He     had^ passed     through  Hudson  come accustomed to think of all tho^-o'  chances as in the past; tense. We of  the youiger     generation are in the  hain't, of thinking that we have none  of the chances   to secure the unearned increment which were offered   20  ai/l "0  years  ago.    It is with some  surprifo,  therefore,  that we disco-v-  ���������src.l  that there is an empire of op-  pciunity just across the imaginary  boundary line to the north, and that  mi-ny of our best and hardiest citizens     are crossing the line to close,  with the" opportunities piesrnted.  Pfcisonally,   I believe  that  the Canadian  movement,- as it might     bo  called, will be very rapid. Never was  a new  country pioneered under such  auspicious  circumstances.  The strong  transcontinental railroads -are themselves  leading ^rti the  niovement, and  the bank, and steam plow,  and harvesting      machine are found on the  very  ojtposts  of the  advancing civilization.   A man who takes up a free  homestead a-hundred miles from any  railway   station   is   likely in  a year  or two   to'have  the  tracks   running  through  his own section.   The sto y  of opportunity  liavels rapidly.    The  man  with small  or no capital,    bur.  with stiong arms and a willing spirit, is not slow to come to the land  where he is needed and will be properly rewarded.   Ten years will work  a. miracle in Canada.  Among the many things by-winch  wc have been impressed is the fact  that, there is no lawless or- vicious  element in the new Canadian country. 'Ihe people who are,.building  this empire, and who' .will themselves  be its foundation stones, arc ; ;Sa  thrifty, God-fearing '-people, and it is  impossible that they will not. leave  on the country a lasting stanip.'  ������������������;.:  The men from   the United  States  feel that there is a very strong poli-  h.'cal bond 'between  the two neighbor  nations.   They find in Canada all\thc  essentials      of personal  liberty    Jin  which  the citizens  of our own land  rejoice.      /The Magna Char la,      "tlic  writ, of habeas  corpus,   the right "of  trial by a jury of one's peers, and to  cross-examine, the  complaining   witness, the sa'credness of .personal liber  ty and  private property, the right of  the taxed  to be represented, and the  final dominance of the  popular voice  in all masters      of legislation���������these  are all  the same essentials  of liberty which we of tlic "United Stales enjoy  as  a common  heritage  from  our  liberty-loving  British   ancestry.     Wc  see Canada as   an aubonamous, self-  psaveihiiiste,' and    lahviady  practically  independent nation, and wc expccT to  sec   this      independence  grow   niorc  rather than less.  After journeying through a country  of   opportunity  and   active  commercial development���������much  of it still  in 1  its crude state���������it  was  fitting that  we should   have   been  brought   to  a  city of beautiful homes like Victoria.  Hero we have found what these people can and will  do when they have  leisure to devote to the  art of living.  Our  travel  has  been  rather  rapid  and our impressions necessarily more  or less      superficial,  hut we believe  they are true so far as they go. .Our  chief regret is the distance that lies  between the province- of British .Columbia and  the district of Columbia",  where most of us make our homes. .

TAKING  A LION  WITH  A      ROPE.  A fipht  worthy  of being recounted  in  anv tale of thrilling adventure was  enacted last     week on the Moorow  ranch, v.Inch lies on the Mount Hamilton  lange,  extending  from  the  ob-  -ervatory south for many miles. Dur  :ng   the last month  E.  F. Robinson,  orcman     of the ranch, had noticed  that their young colts  were decreasing   m   numbers with   alarming   rapidity.   Almost    every morning      the  ���������nangletl  carcass   of  a colt  wo.ild  be  "ouinl.   Tracks  around  the slaughtered   animals     told   the  story  0t   the,  mountain   lion.    Close  watch       was  kept,  but    the cWpicdatious   continu-  ed-as before,  and  Ihe lion evaded all  efforts 10 'kill him or diive him off.  One morning Robinson, with���������, a  bunch of cowboys, was rounding up  some stock in a 1 emote section of the  ranch \\hen the dog^with them smarted a large animal in a thicket. They  tuied to send the dog into the bushes  but he cowered away. Suddenly, an  immense California lien left the cover and ran up a la.rge oak tree near  by. There were no weapons in. the  crowd, and Rob'iiu.on was afraid to  si nd-one'of the men to the wagon for  a rifle lest, they lose, sight entirely of  the  animal.  Accordingly   they   formed   a cordon  around   the   tree   and let   out    their  riatas at. the lion.   The animal stood  at 'bay   and warded  off the 'tawhid.es  .witli  his   paws. The men had almost  despaired   of  accomplishing   anything  when Sc-lby Trimble,   the crack rider  of the Morrow ranch, volunteered to  leave   the   circle  and climb  a nearby  tree  to endeavor to cast the rope in  a different   manner.    He'did  this     at  Ihe  risk   of his life.   -After 'repeated  failures  he succeeded  when  the  lion's  head  was turned  the   -opposite way.  ihe   other   rinU.s   IV11   qmickly      one  alter   ihe  other  and   the animal   was  h'anc,ed I hen and  there.  The   skin   is   in beautiful   condition  and   measures over seven feet    from  lip   to .tip.    It  is at present   at    the  Santa  Clara tannery.  -o-  The Cumberland people have prepared a splendid programme for the  Orangemen's Day celebration on the  12th inst.

Mr. Roosevelt, it seems, was present  at a reception attended by Governor  and Mrs. La Follette. The president  and Mrs. La Follette were standing In  one corner engaged iu conversation  and eating ice cream. He was doing  the bulk of the talking, and she was  an attentive nnd unwavering listener.  "Suddenly I discovered," says the  president, "that for at least five min-  utos I had been pouring ice cream  down the front of her handsome evening gown. She had known it all the  time, but had not indicated It by even  the quiver of aa eyelash or by the  slightest change 4n the smiling, Interested expression upon her face. She  had simply been too polite to interrupt me by word or look or move, no  matter what happened to the gown."  Small Oxen.
