Motor highways in the west
are reaching dimensions and
importance whioh easterners
can not realize unless   they
have seen them, says Bystander at the Office Window in the
Toronto Globe.   It is   only
forty years since the first rai
way   pierced   the   Canadian
Rockies after much financial
and engineering trouble, and
the    pioneer line   clung   to
mountain-sides in a manner to
give   thrills   to   passengers.
Later much  of the  steeper
mileage was reduced by tunnels  until  now the various
lines make quick time from
the prairies to the coast.' Two
years ago the opening of the
highway from Banff to Win
dermere was hailed as a great
step in opening the mountains
to vehicular traffic.    We are
reminded by a reader that this
is now* but a small link in i
great system, which is   con
stantly being extended. John
Simpson writes:
"The longest motor highway in the world is known as
the Grand Circle Tour. It
extends for five thousand miles
through Alberta, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon,
-California, Arizona, Utah,
Idaho, Wyoming and Mon
tana, and passes through fifteen national parks, three of
which are. in Canada. They
are just finishing the last gap
now along the Thompson
and Fraser rivers, and the
entire five thonsand miles will
be open to tourists by June 1

itt made Calgary his starting point,
he wonld go west to Banff and Lake
Louise and then to Windermere by
the Banff* Windermere road. He
wonld tben go south between the
Rookie* and the Pureell range of
the Selkirks to Cranbrook, irom
which point he would go west to
Knskanook, on Kootenay lake. The
distanoe from that point to Nelson
by steambuat is fifty-three miles, and
the steamboat* ran every nay in the
year. Cars are carried on the boat*
over thi* distance. The laat touches
•re now being put to tht road from
Nelaon to Vanoouver, which passea
through Trail, Rossland, Grand
Fork*, Spence's Bridge and Hope,
pawing for many miles through the
magnificent canyons of the Thompson
and the Fraser.

Comparatively few of the thousands of miles of railroad
in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to efficient operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country.  Some trains
and cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are in constant use which
beside being labor saving do away with the human element which might make for inefficiency.   Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of the Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
' To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general public is only interested ln it
because it gives added protection, or rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more.  It acts as watch;
affStltsat KpnlrAn w.1™   —— "    •
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail this ia
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the reason
that another train is occupying the block, or that there is
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pass.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following in
the rear may not approach for the reason that they ara
alao stopped by an automatic signal which will not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section of thc track which they desire to enter.
A perfect system. No electrical circuit — no through
signal — no train may pass.

The Family   Herald   and Weekly
Star was generally admitted to be
good value, in faot big value, bat
wben reduced to Oae Dollar a year
it will certainly be tbe marvel of
