Hockey Pictorial
A Masterpiece
The Sun editor has received a
copy of the Hockey Pictoml which
bas jusl been published, and which
is at once the handsomest and most
complete publication ever produced
in the world for anv single sport
It is a marvel of good taste in artistry and industry of achievement.
Itis impossible to speak too highly
of it.
The book represents years of effort
typographically and pictorially, it
is a "masterpiece." From cover to
cover it is embellished with group
pictures of championship teams
from 1888 to 1924; in fact, the
history of Canada's great national
winter sport is told in pictures.
Old-timers will be interested in
the handsome halftones of tbe
teams who were promiuent a generation ago, while the younger euthn
siusts will enjoy the eproductions
of tbe more recent winuers.
The book is not only lavishly
illustrated, but is literally crammed
with much interesting information
regarding ndividuals, clubs and
leagues throughout tbe country.
Local hockey fans will find a
very interesting group picture of the
Canadian Olympic hockey chain
pious on the fiont cover aud also a
oomplete history of the player- and
records right to the finals.
The book Bells for 82 aud can be
secured by writing to the Hockey
Pictorial, 84 Victoria St., Toronto.

In a letter to the press, Larion
Veregin, of Brilliant, nephi « of tbe
late Peter Voregh, leader if the
Doukhobor community, say?:
''After careful consideration regarding the Farron tragedy, I hnve
cometo the conclusion that the ar»
cident bad arisen out of gas in tbe
car or else somebody carrying higb
explosives wbich were dot intended
for Peter Veregin, My reason for
such a statement is logical and
very simple, because tbe late worthy
Kentleman had heen riding in a bug
gy for 20 miles in the woods quite
frequently witb a boy teamster. He
also walked many miles all alone by
himself, aud if someone had wished
to kill Mr. Veregin lie could have
overtaken him easily, fu any event
I could not make myself believe that
tbis affair has been done by any
Doukhobor as long as I live."

Toronto, Nov. 27.—Numerous problems which have a
relation to the welfare of fairs

Value of Windbreaks
in Outdoor Wintering
The importance of a good windbreak can not be overestimated
wbere colonies of bees are wintered
out of doors since, for protection
from tbe prevailing winds, it is as
essential aB packing.
Although well packed colonies
whicb are subjected to a heavy wind
blowing on them for a few hours
will have tbeir temperature reduced
considerably; in fact, well packed
colonies which are exposed to the
cold winds may die, wbile th is
having less packing bui better protected from the winds will survive.
Wben we think of our own houses
in wind-swept areas and of the difficulty of keeping the temperature
up in lbe best constructed one, we
will apprecia e the necessity of pros
viding adequate protection from
cold winds for our colonies.
Windbreaks may be natural or
artificial, and the artificial ones may
be either temporary or permanent.
Natural windhreaks are considered
to be the better. For good natural
protectiou the apiary may be located
io the lee of a grove of trees, young
timber, au evergreen hedge or on a
side bill slanting from north lo
soutb, along tbe top of wbich a
hedge or fence iB located.
Artificial windbreaks may be torn
porary fences or hurdles such as are
used by tbe railroads, in which tbe
boards are placed horizontally with
intervening Bpaces of \\ to 2 inches.
I'hey may be permanent fences in
which the boards are placed vertically with the above-mentioned
spacing between them. The object
of the openings between tbe boards
is to allow Bome of the wfnd to pass
through, thus preventing a tendency
to rise and roll over the fence top
into the apiary. The height of these
fences should be approximately
eight feet and if possible placad on
all four sides of the apiary. Buildings, as a rule, should not lie relied
on to break the wind, for thev may
only divert it and possibly make
matters worse. Apart from Ps ad
vintages in winter, a good wind
break facilitates examinations in
the slimmer, when without it strnn-»
winds wonld retard tbp work.—A.

'he Trami-Canacla Limited, the 'crank transcontinental express
of the Canadian Pacific Hallway, operated froimMfty to September, completed its 1924 schedule on September 13th, whon its
■ last.trains started.-and. on. S,ojtte|Til>ev 17th these trains steamed
tWi -Infot\ii termini tit Montreal and Vancouver, bringing to a close
one of the service's most successful seasons.
the 2,886 miles of its run between tho iv.o cities I
Its Toronto-Vancouver run of. 2,707 miles In 86 hours.
n(,(.   ., Miv C. B. Foster, Passenger Traffic Manager, summing up
'  * M*— 'theseason's performance, gave out soine remarkably intor«3sting
.  l'lsmcu'Wlij.-ii.affortl a partial insight into the magnitude ot the
XJ*Bttlt of maintaining sueh a service.     The Trans-Canada limited
began its runs this year on May 18(11, and before being discontinued made 119 trips in each direction,; Qrv 238 in all.     The
equipment of the train Is limited to 6pe baggage, one dining nit,
CpV3T standard sleepers, one 10-eompartmeut car Vancouver tp
Montreal, and one 10-compartment bar  Toronto'i- tou Winnipeg,
with a drawing room-3-compartmenfc observation sleeper Montreal to Vancouver, plus a local  sleeper  on the  west.-bound
^.auft-e-ment only from Fort William to'Winnipeg, i -Thus -the maxiv
.mum accommodation available in bach direotlon between the
Bast and Winnipeg is forty-eight: tyeetioris,' £w$ntS-tlM*ee compartments arid five drawing rooms, SVhlle between Winnipeg and
the Coast there are forty-eight sections, thirteen compartments
aud five drawing rooms.    Tha,average number of passengers
"*10 l-flntho train at night varies from sitenty-five to 110 on' different
-sections of the line, but foil the 118 llays the train was in service
**. jast season there was a one-night use of approximately 100,000 berths.   The
"   east-bouud and west-bound trains together covered 6,292 miles every day,
which includes the distance between Montreal and Vancouver, 2,886 miles,
and between Toronto and Sudbury, 300 miles, cpvterejj by-each train and Its
Toronto-Sudbury connection.     Thus the season's mileage was 758,748 for
V -Uie 238 trips, or three times the dudunce from the earth to. the moon.
-',        Bach day four Trans-Canada tratfus were in motion oyer the Companyls
"   Hues in each direction.  At 8 A.M. cijeh da^one wa* weet-Tiound betwedh
Cartler and CHSpieau, one between Kenora hnd Winnipeg, one between Medicine Hat and,Calgary, and one between North Bend and Vancouver, while at
that  hour one, east-bound,   was  Approaching  .Glacier,   one   approaching
i'ltegina, one east of,Port William ar.ii one between- CKalk'Rivor aha Ottawa.
j,...T*B|i" complete 'sets of ec.i*i*>rri<-nt, cV. which four were in motion each way
ol overy day and o*,svitti **e-;,y cienut i. rtoaU«d,and:tu**u«**rt'*r*ou*id at each end
it of* lb* Tfln, were 'required to maintjiin tlie service.
Tho year's schedule called for 22 changes of engine on every Trans-
Canada, run from Montreal to Vancouver and two engines for the
Toronto-Sudbury connection made by each train. There were 48 engine
luiis dally for the service. Including these engine-stops, the trains made
only 26 stops on their whole run. It is on this steady movement at a
uniform speed over long distances and not on high speed that the trains
maintained their fast schedules over the transcontinental journey and tha
elimination Of all but essential stops resulted in tho smooth running for
which it is noted. Owing to the necessity of changing trains crews on
such a long run; about 14 crews, or about 84 meu, were required for one
trip on each train, while 48 sleeping and dining-car employees wero
required for each-trip'on one train or nearly 400 men for this branch cf the
Trans-Canada service. None of the hundreds of employees wiio^a duties
also associate them with tho Trans-Canada Limited, but who do not travel
with it, is included in these figures.

r ALIGNE CANYON, in Jasper
1 National Park, is one of the
' natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain'region. A vast
cleft in tho solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
across- it easily, draws front the
tourist expressions of awe ant)
wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water.
-,-i»fl  01 ,
• ••-•- Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join-the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below.  At times on
;'its passage   through   the narrow
..gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
"eddies being   churned  to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From ijhe footbridges which span
ithe narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced- the effect of the Waters on the rocky
sides. Here and.thare, seemingly
"tired of the effort tb stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
jthe gorge appear to have leaned
toward ona, another, until pn* intervening roc| cast itself into the msjr-
i'ow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks

rightly so, for there are few ha"-

? Maligne Canyon, while one of the
'most wdndci*ful formations tp bo

but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park
Jn addition there are Hie snow-

The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the llnodoos of the

is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to tha
tired holiday-seeker.
And in addition to the natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
'horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts and

tn the beauties of Jasper National

American traveller to exclaim: "At
last I have found the place, where
God and man go fifty-fifty to
produce perfection."
