Sir John Pickford, Chief Scout
Commissioner and Commissioner
for Overseas Scouts and Migration,
recently laid before E. W. Beatty,
President of the G.P.R., his plans
for assisting boys over seventeen
years of age to come to Canada.
Sir John said that more British boys
were going to Australia because the
age limit for assisted passages to
that country was higher than Canada's.
Increasing prosperity in the agricultural industry, resulting ln reawakened interest in the acquisition
of Canadian farm lands, has had the
result of raising the average value
of western farm lands from $87 per
acre in 1924 to $ 38 per acre In 1926.
For the year Prince Edward Island
shows the highest increase at $46
per acre, compared to $40 in 1924.
Of the grain stocks at the port of
Vancouver, which are being steadily
exported, European markets received
practically 27 million bushels and
the Orient 20 million bushels of the
47,640,647 bushels of the 1926 crop,
which had been shipped to Vancouver. The amount of grain in
store at Vancouver is seldom mora
than 4,600,000 bushels.
All local trains coming into Windsor Station, Montreal, from the
Eastern Townships brought supplies
of maple syrup which Increased
rapidly during April. Similar shipments poured into the Place Viger
Station from the Laurentians. Dominion Express officials stated that
the quantities were well up to the
average of former years, while the
quality was also up to the mark.
With the inauguration ef the new
"Redwing" special train service en
the Canadian Pacific Railway line
between Boston and Montreal, a
group of prominent Bostonians were
invited to Montreal on the Initial
trip of the "Redwing" from Boston.
Montrealers went to Boston on the
same special. The "Redwing" cuts
several hours off the old'schedule
between the two cities.
According to the weekly crop t*.
port of the Canadian Pacific Railway the spring opening ef the 1929
season, after one of the finest winters ever experienced ln Western
Canada, finds conditions very favorable. Feed was plentiful and winter

for coming season are fine ewing

A world - weary Old Timer, one
of the pioneers of the Canadian
West, died recently in Edmonton at
the age of 94. He was known ns
"Daddy" Blair, but hl3 real name
was Telesphore Alexander Blals. As
a scout, soldier and adventurer ho
carried the Hudson's Bay Company
Hag into the remote corners of the
West for half a century, finally
bowing his sturdy shoulders before
the ravages of age. Since the inauguration of stampedes in various
cities in the West, Daddy was always one of the first to attend, no
matter how much he felt the Weight
of his years. He made his last
effort in 1920 when he attended the
Hudson's Bay Parade in Edmonton
at the age of 89.
i Dad was only fourteen years of
age when he left the old homestead
near Montreal. The glamour, the
excitement, the rush and uncertainty of circus life, the shouts of
the performers, the tumultuous applause of happy pleasure-seekers,
lured him. Even the dust bit into
his blood and away went Dad,
around the jworld with Barnum's circus.
One day in London, Daddy was
driving one of Barnum's dght-horse
teams. A little girl mn suddenly

Wyre forests of a thousand acres of ancient

the old oaks, while picturesque, where useless
and occupied altogther too much space for
practical purposes. Canadian foresters are to
have charge of the reforestation. The 1926

Timmius is tha center of Canada's great st
gold aamp, writes Hugh Martin, correspondent
of the London Daily Nt ws in Poj upine
camp, Ontario. Twelve years ago it was a
strip of bush; today it has a population of 15,
000. Timmins has an "up to date fire protection system, electric lights, duplicate high
pressure waterworks system, comp'ese sewage
and disposal plant, incinerator, good hotels,
local and long distance telephone, express,
four chartered banks, mile3of concrete walks,
a capable citizens' band, choral societies,
orchestra and fine churches." Perhaps you
have been thinking of a gold camp as a place
where the men gamble desperately, drink
deeply, swear ornately and sometimes bave a
little shoot-up just for fun. But Martin says
he was entertained at dinner by 300 of the
soberest, kindliest, most seutimental fellows
he ever met. Having put tbe Presbyterian
parson—a strapping yo'nng man—in the chair,
they rose in a body before starting the meal
and saluted the Union Jack. Tben they sang
'God Save the King" devotionally. Then they
sang grace: "Be present at our table, Lord,"
right down the line "To dwell in paradise
with Thee." And tbe singing had a knowledge

The Official Ride of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, commenced
this year on the morning of August 8th and ended at Wapta Camp on the
night of the tenth. Over a hundred members participated. They rode across
country between Marble Canyon, on the Banff-Windermere Highway, to the
Bungalow Camp at Lake Wapta.
The Riders, among them a number of prominent society pec pie, scientists
and artists, all travelling on horse-back, blazed a new passage across the
Wolverine Plateau. Six countries wtre represented] Canada, the United
States, Australia, France, the West Indita and England. The artists, of
whom there were six, made sketches of the -irgin scenery alon*; the route
of the newly discovered trail.
Seven Indians were in the party, six being Kootenays under Chief Louis
Arbel, while the seventh was Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance who gave a
lecture on the Indian Races of Canada to tbe Canadian Club of Montreal
during the winter, and is rapidly becoming famous as an authority upon
Indian affairs.
The artists included Leonard Richmond, R.B.A., and A. L. Leighton of
England; Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne and Richard M. Kimbel, of New
York, and R. Palenske of Chicago. Paris was represented by thc Due de
Nemours, who recently purchased a ranch near Calgary.
■ This was the Becond annual Ride and Pow-pow of the organization. On
the morning of August the eighth, motor, cars conveyed the Riders from
Lake Louise and Banff to the point of departure on the Banff-Windermere
Highway. There guides and horses were in readiness ahd the party immediately mounted and the Ride commenced. The trail led up Tumbling
Creek, past Tumbling Glacier and on the Wolverine Plateau where lunch was
'served. The ride then proceeded along the Plateau with the Wolverine
Palisades, Mount Helmet and the Washmawapta Icefield and Waterfalls on
the left, giving the riders a view of the Ten Peaks on the right.
That night camp was pitched on the Goodsir Plateau and before retiring
the campers gathered around the fire for the usual sing-song, in the shadow
of the cliff which rises sheer six thousand, five hundred feet above its valley.
On the second day the ride led down to Goodsir Creek and up McArthur
Creek, past Lake McArthur. That night was spent of the shores of Lake
O'Hara, the camp there being placed at the disposal of the Trail Riders by
the Alpine Club of Canada. The day ended again with a sing-song.
On the third day, August 10th, the final ride was made from Lake O'Hara
to Wapta Lake, where the expedition was concluded with a Pow-wow, singsong and pale-face dance at Tipi Camp. It is expected that another ride of a
similar hature will take place next year as the undertaking impressed those
who took part as one of the most enjoyable outtinge they have experienced.
Not only does the Ride provide an uncommonly pleasant holiday for sportsmen from Canada and thc United States, but ic also serves the excellent
purpose of making the scenery and the fishing and hunting facilities of the
Rockies known abroad.

DELIVERIES of grain to tho
lakehead by the Canadian National Railways during September just closed exceeded the-combined deliveries of September, 1924,
and 1023, according to grain figures
issued at Winnipeg on Oct. 1st,
18,913 cars were delivered during
September, 1925, against 4,051 in
September, 1921, and 12,656 in tho
samo month of 1923. The daily
average for September, 1925, was
630 cars against the previous record
of 822, established in September,
New records wero mado by thc
Canadian National in other branches
of the grain movement also. Marketings during thc month were 52,-
207,000 bushels against the previous
high mark of 39,770,000, made in
September, 1923. Loadings were
27,878 cars and-37,217,000 bushels
during the month compared with
22,508 cars and 28,472,000 bushels in
September, 1923. Total loadings on
Canadian National lines to tho end
of September this year were 29,284
- cars and 39,038,000 bushels, against
11,079 cars containing 14,632,000
bushels at the same date' last year.
On several days toward tlio end
of thc month, loadings reached from
1,400 to 1,500 cars per day, which
during tho ten-hour working day required the loading of approximately
two and a half cars per minute in
order to reach this total. Reducing
the time to seconds it was estimated
that ut least 60 bushels of grain (the
contents of a farmer's wagon box)
were loaded into a,car on Canadian
National Western lines every second
during the ten-hour working day.
The heaviest week of the
season by four million
bushels in grain marketings closed on Oct. 1st.
Loadings for the week
were heavier than any
previous week since the
opening of the grain season by 1,200 cars or nearly
one million bushels. Compared with statistics for
tho same period
last year, the
week's marketings
were just twice those of 1924, while
the loadings were larger by 3,837
cars, or 4,258,000 bushels.
A record week was alSo experienced at the lakehead, when 6,149
cars of grain were unloaded and 60
boats, carrying 13,292,000 bushels,
were cleared for eastern markets.
During the same week last year only
2,208 cars were unloaded and 29
boats, carrying
5,806,000 bushels,
were cleared.
Canadian National loadings for
thu week by provinces were: 8,-

Marketings at C.N. points wore:
4,167,00 bushels,Manitoba; 11,825,000

order given above: 2,019,000, 12,-
