CELEBRATION IN
GITY BIG SUCCESS
It '■ a pleasant task to be able to
say that tne celebration of Canada's
Diamond Jubilee in Orand Forka sur
paasel all expectation in the successful manner in which it was carried
out There does not appear to be
any doubt about thia fact, because
it ls the general opinion of our cltl-
sens.
The parade was undoubtedly the
mnst pretentious that hag ever been
witnessed here. The leading feature
of the parade was the floats. Considerable originality had been expended in their decoration, and every
one of tbem would have done credit
to a procession in a much larger oity
than Orand Forks. The two that
elicited the most praise were those
of the Canadian Legion and the Red
Cross.
The procession formed at the
poet oflice, and after marching
through the principal streets, co-n
Unued the journey to the public
school building, where a program of
■peaking and vocal and lnstrmental
music was carried out
The order of the parade was:
Marshal 8. Dinsmore, Orand Forks
Are department, prospectors' pack
train, prairie schooner drawn by
six-horse team. Floats: Public
Bchool; Red Cross; Pythian Sisters;
I. OO. 0. F; Canadian Legion; K.
of P.;M. A. ft A. M.; Eastern Star;
"Ship of State." TheBe were followed by a long line ot handsomely
decorated automobiles.
At the public school grounds ad-
dresses were made by the mayor of
the city and Rev. P. C. Hayman and
,D McPhersop, MjL.A. The latter
spoke at some length on the right
kind of Cana "lanlam, while the preceding speakers were briefer in their
remarks,, though their addresses
were appropriate to the occasion.
Interspersed between these speeches,
vocal numbers were rendered by the
public sohool children under the direction of Mrs. Win. Oowans and
Miss Edna Stuart. "0 Canada" and
"The Maple Leaf Forever'were rendered ln very good style. A vocal
number by the blgh school girls also
reeelved high praise. B. F. Laws,
chairman of the school board, presided aa chairman over the school-
■rounds program.
At tlie conclusion of the exercises
at the school grounds, the children
of the city were entertained at the
City park for the balance of the
afternoon.
Most of the buildings ot the city
were handsomely decorated, that of
provincial court house bel ng the
most elaborate, the post office coming next in order.

"Tell me what you Know Ib tra*

FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1927
bees have a partially for certain colors, it would tend to Increase the
supply of honey. For instance, it a
bee showed distinct preference for
yellow the apiarist would provide
hunting grounds ot yellow flowers,
such as daffodils, and the bees would
be saved time looking for the next
best color.
Prof. Frisch has conducted searching experiments to ascertain if bees
are indeed color blind and, as a result of these tests, has come to the
conclusion that they are particularly attracted by blue and yellow.
He has also investigated the question of a bee's sense of smell. To
try and solve the mystery the professor built an glass hive and marked
certain of the bees that inhabited it.
The result was interesting. Eevery
time a marked bee returned from a
trip to flowers, it peformed a sort of
weird dance while others crowded
around it. Then one by one the
spectators bew away, straight to the
patch of flowers the marked bee had
come from.
It was obvious that the traveller
had communicated the whereabouts
of those flowers in some way. But
how had it been done
The professor's theory is that a
bee emits a trail of scent from a tiny
gland and that other bees can smell
it and follow it
It Is, of course, very interesting to
know all this, but many may ask
why such trouble should be taken
over a bee. The answer is: "Many
reasons."
For tbe bees are responsible for
the matchmaking of thousands of
flowers, trees, and vegetables. They
carry the pollen from plant to plant,
thus keeping up vegetable life. If
they suddenly went on strike, vegetation would be vastly reduced, and
man would be distinctly up against
It
Many Londons in One
Have you ever looked a bee In the
srs It isn t easy, for a bee has Ave,
of which the two largest are at the
sides of the head, while the remaining three are grouped ln a triangle In
the center of its forehead,
If you had a bee's eyes you would
see thousands of Images ot whatever
you looked at! For a queen bee's
two largest eyes have 14,000 or so
tiny lenses, while those of the ordinary bee are made up some 40,000
equally efficient lenses.
It is difficult for us to Imagine how
things look to a bee, but entomologists believe that these multiple eyes
furnish .a * bee with a far clearer
vision than is possessed by human
beings. In any case the usual power of such eyes must be amaxing.
- The bee is famous for two things
—his Industriousness and his remarkable ability to find his way
about. Watch one leaving the hive.
He will rise straight up, circle round
once or twice, and then fly straight
—in a "bee line"—to his hunting
ground miles away.
The question that Is now puzzling
scientists ls how does he do itf It
ls almost cejrtaln that bees leave
scent trails behind them which guide
other bees. But does not their sight,
top) help them very considerably?
lint: Karl Frisch, who has ntede
an intensive study of bees, Is convinced they have a kind of X-ray
vision which enagles them to see
through solid objects. And yet
scientists . have accused the bee of
being color''"blind.
It it could be proved definitely that
The flnal report of Mr. Justice Aulay Morrison, royal commissioner
enquiring Into the charges against
the government laid by John A. Gauthler, has been released. It completely exonerates members of the
Oliver administration and the commissioner finds that the charges contained in Gauthicr's affidavit were
groundless.
Gauthler charged that members of
the government and -Mr. Speaker, J.
A. Buckham; wore mixed up in the
purchase ot liquor. The commissioner finds this untrue and states
that no evidence was produced to
show that any payments, improper
or othqfwlse, were charged up
againat the provincial treasury.
"The publio purse could have been
affected only if the government had
been ln collusion with Gauthier,
which I find was not the fact'reals
the report.
Thu commissioner cleans the name
of Mr.-Buckham entirely, but he mildly censures him for "allowing his
good nature to be Imposed upon."
The commissioner call Gauthler
"a ptjrBuaslve Individual upon whose
evidence little reliance could be
placed."
The enquiry ends the long string
of Invqstigatlons Into alleged malfeasance in oflice on the part of the
government. These commenced during the seSBlon of the legislature last
wlnti{r and the administration has
come through with flying colors and
a clean sheet after the most exhaustive probes.
SON Of MARY ELLEN
SMITH IS DEAD
Vancouver, July 6.—One of Vancouver's prominent lawyers, Robert
Smith, son ot Mrs, Mary Ellen Smith,
M.L.A., died In a hospital today. His
father, the late, Hon. Ralph Smith,
was minister of mines ln the provincial government in 1916.

SUN'S WEEKLY TRAVELOGUE
There are many Londons in the
one London. Thu Loudon of Roman
and Saxon, of Normal and Plantag-
enet; the London of Chaucer and
Shakespeare, of Lanmb and Dickens and Thackeray; the London 'of
clubs and hotels; the London of
facttories and sweat-shops; the
London that administers the affairs
of empire, and the London that
dances and plays cricket. There is
the summer London ofthe tourist;
therct is social London reveling in
May; there ts the November London of smoke and fog, busy and Inhospitable. They are each London,
and all London—one of the greatest
cities in the world.
Older caipital cities than London
there are a few in Euurope, greater
thc-re are none. Putting aside all
unproved tradition, its history begins with the coming of the Roman
legions. Rome, seven centuries old,
was ln her pagan prlm4 but Paris,
then Lutetia, was an island hamlet
in the Seine; Vienna was a small
Roman camp; Berlin did not come
Into existence for many a century
thereafter; Madrid first appears a
thousand years later; Brussels was
founded in the sixth century, Amsterdam about the thirteenth of our
era. These count not at all in London's age.    •
And while we are busy with figures, let us give,a few more, and
have done.
The city of London, the commercial heart ot the metropolis on the
site of British hamlet and Roman
town, measures about a mile square
In the daytime its inhabtanta number more than 300,000; at night not
a twelfth that number Bleep there
land is too valuable for residence.
During one day a million and a half
ot people pass through the gates.
Beyond it, on both Bides of the river
spreads anothrjir London, of five million people, over 130 square miles
(approximately 14 by 10 miles), and
beyond that "Greater London," the
district covered b** the Metropolitan
and city police, with 700 square
miles and more than 7,000,000 inhabitants.
The East end, beyond the "city'
and the Tower, is a manufacturing
district, tenanted largely by Jewish
tailors. There are other industries,
but the, race predominates. The
West end ls the home of fashion and
of power. Between. theBe ends lies
real London—all the year, eveTy
day, native London—with all its
wealth of long and tremendous history, of literary and legal rapute,of
commercial prestige, ot architectural fame. The district across the
river concerns the American visitor
only in a few delnite interests; all
of London for him lies ln in a mile-
wide band along the Thames, from
the Tower to Westminster; but bo
rich is it that when -he would summarize his impressions, he finds
neither  beginning nor  end.
This ls the city built on the site
of Briton hamlei, Roman camp, Say-
on stronghold; the city which bas
been raveged by plague and by fire,
repopultad and rebuilt almost overnight. Of the Roman city which
ended with the recall ot the legions,
there remain large, fragments of
wall, the names of gates, sundry
relis of edifices. The Saxons and
the Danes were not builders, but
of Norman London there is yet that
stately tower, historically the most
interesting spot in England, and at
the other end of the city, Temple
churcS. The "great lire" of 1666
took what stood between; for wbat
is there today Sir Christopher Wren
Ib  largely  responsible
Surely, to no architect ever came
greater opportunity. This fire, of
which our voluble friend Pepys
gives such graphic account—"the
churches, houses, and all on fire
and a horrid noise the flames made;
* * * It made me peep to see
it"—licked up 13,000 houses and
churcluj-, among them the ancient
Cathedral of St Paul. Wren drew
the plans for their reconstruction
he and his pupils carried them to
completion. In the general scheme
none could have wrought better.
The grouping of the city's parish
churches about St, Paul's,  the  con
spires with the huge brooding dome
is  perfect.
The Tower of London—the whole
fortress Is called that, never "castle", for some reason unexplained
—is today vastly different from that
ol the Normans. Then is was a
royal residence as well as a stronghold; now it is a government ar-
seal and barracks-.
. Of the ancient buildings only the
round Norman church of 1185 re
mains, one of the few in England.
In it peaceful marble knights have
slept these scjven cent uries with
other revered dust that once bore
well-known names.
Trafalgar square ls the official
center and the tourist heart of London. From it one trolls Into Whitehall, the broad street named for an
ancient palacei where the business of
ths British empire Is admlstered.
The Admiralty, the -Horse Guards,
the Treasury, Downing street the
foreign and colonial offices, are upon
one side; great Scotland Yard, the
war offices, the "Banqueting Hall,'
Bole relic of the Palace of Whitehall,
on the other, and beyond, reached by
Derby street, new Scotland Yard,
headquarters of the Metropolitan police.
Let us pass on to Westminster,
which beckons ln the mist. And having come there, what shall we sayl
There is too much of beauty, of mem-
orUy, of life and love and pain, too
much of suggestion for one calmly to
bear.
Leu us go across the river and look
upon it all safely. The great Abbey
church   is   hidden   now, so we con
X
look the more critically; for the
houses of parliament (thq palace of
Westminster) are new—very new1—
for England, and do not oppress us
with our own youthfulness. -No one
will question that they are very
beautiful.
Within they are as rich as without,
but interest centers in that great
Norman hall, one of the finest rooms
in the" world. As early as the days
of Canute there waB a palace here,
but it was William Rufus wbo, in
1097, began this hall, and a palace
that was the residencq of kings to
the time of Henry VIH.
The Victoria tower rises above the
king's flntrance to the house of lords.
St, Stephen's tower, at the other end
of the long building from St. Stephen's chapel), is the clock tower, the
home of "Big Ben," the largest bell
(13% tons) in London except "Great
Paul" (16 tons), which is the largest
in Englnnd, ln the cathedral tower.

Do we all know the driving fool?
I'll say we do. Why, then, Isn't it a
good plan to have a special Sunday
memorial service, dedicated to drlv
Ing fools—with all the spare parts
for such occasions. It could be
memorized by preachers all over the
country and would go something like
this: *
Organ Prelude: "Keep your tail-
lights burning.'
Announcement of Text: "Blessed
are the pace-makers, for they shall
dlsinhabit the earth."
Offertory Hymn: "There's a little
spark of gass still burning."
Sermon: "Consider the joy-riders;
they toll not but they certainly do
spin."
Organ Postlude: "Crossing the

CHRI8TOPHER   WREN'S   ORNAMENTAL PILLAR8
The town hall at -Windsor, England, was built by Sir Christopher
Wren. He planned the structure
with a greatly overhanging roof,
which the committee declared would
fall If not supported by pillars.
"My roof will not fall or even
sag," Sir Christopher answered,"but
since you want pillars, you shall
havq them."
So the building has a line of columns across the front ln the traditional way; but if you look closely
you will see that they do not meet
the roof by several inches.And in
all the years that have elapsed since
the building was put up the roof has
maintained the samo distance from
its unnecessary supports.
OCEAN ROCKET
WILt CARRY
PASSENGERS?
Worcester, Mass., July 4.—Prof.
Robert H..Goddard, Internationally
famous physicist, is experimenting
his Clark university laboratory with
the idea of a giant passenger-carrying rocket having some features of
the airplane, which will enable man
to thunder tn the air across the Atlantic at a rate of spee-d so terrific
that the flight of Lindbergh, Chamberlain and Byrd will seem slow ln
comparison.
Prof. Goddard in his abloratory today declared no details of the Pro-
jcicted rocket ship would be made
public until he had arrived at some
definite conclusions, but he admitted
he was working on the idea and that
he had high hoptfs for the eventual
success of his experiments.
"This is no Idle dream," he said,
"but an actual scientific possibility.
The idea of combining rocqet and
airplane is an offshoot of the space
rocket on which I have been working
for the past 11 years. My own experiments, confirmed by scientists ln
Germany, Austria and Russia- prove
that the space rocket, propelled by
successive explosions, is capable If
traveling a practically infinite distance, far enough at least to pass- beyond the sphere of gravtational influence of this planet. A- flight
across the Atlanticfor an elaborated
rockeit carrying passengers, -will be
only a short jump in the relation
to infinity."

Plenty of water and salt are necessary ln all feeding practices.
Too often a fellow's charity scorns
to be glued to his Angers.
A careful Inspection of fruit and
vegntablet- crops in the- Boundarv
and Okanagan districts shows oondltions to be better than at first Anticipated, according to reports.
Weather conditions have been favor-
ble, and with several good rains, the
moisture conditions are very good.
With the season being two or three
weeks late, the irrigation period will
be much shorter. However storage
supplies ot water in the Okanagan
are reported to be ample for the demand.
Regardless of the early froBts,
friuts are now setting better than
earlier predicted. Wherever the
trees are ln good vigor and are receiving good care, the set Is all that
could be expected. As a whole,
however, the crop might be termed
"patchy." Apples will work out
about 75 per cent of last year's crop,
while pears will be less. Ston,, fruits
with the possible exception ot prunes
and plums will be much lower.
Cherries, swettf and sour, run about
40 per cent. Peaches and apricots
about 35 per cent. Small fruits will
be about the same as last year. Some
winter Injury on raspberries is apparent In certain patches.
The plentiful supply ot water
available for Irrigation purposes
should have a marked influence on
the size of all fruits. Considerable
thinning is now being done, with
growers endeavoring to work for
the medium sizes, which were the
bes sellers In previous years.
Mor0 attention- Is being paid to
potatoes,, cabbage, carrotB and lettuce, with an increased acreage of
eaoh to be found. Even In onions considerable consideration is being
given to the planting of sets, plants
and transplanting, with a view* to
supplying the early market demand.
The tomato acreage will be about
the same as last year. Cold weather
was hard on plants which were not
of good size and well hardened, but
at the present time plants are starting off well.
Onions: Acreage less than before.
Poor germination and' Injttry from
cutworms and onion maggots will
greatly affect the yield.
Late potatoes: With weather conditions favorable, and good irrigating conditions, a good normal crop
of potatoes Is expected in the Okanagan, although this is not an 1ml
portant crap for that district.
Grain and hay crops, though later
than laBt year, are looking exceedingly well at this season. First crop
alfalfa Is just being cut. Timothy is
stretching out fust. Fall wheat is
headpd and will yield heavily.
Spring grain, wheat and oats, are
looking line and with a little extra
moisture during heading, indications
point to a heavy crop. THE SUN: GBAND FORKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Ther^ is more significance than usual in ihis statement
of .fact. The people oi' British Columbia recently have
been told that young men are leaving this province because the policiie of the Oliver government are not conducive to industrial expansion. Dr. Tolmie and his followers repeatedly have declared on the1 public platform
that capital is being frightened away, that the province's
natural resources are being dissipated for the benefit of
foreign industrialists, and that, generally speaking, British Columbia is fading out of Hie industrial picture. In
the light of the official figures—they are not political
propaganda, but are available! to the public at, large—Dr.
Tolmie and his associates should, if Ihey desire to be fair
in their statements, explain the difference between their
generalities and fact. Incidentally, tlie taxpayers of British Columbia -will observe from tlie figures quoted that
this province continues to forge ahead In an industrial
way.. They will naturallyask themselves how it is that
there should be such a studied attempt on lhe part of Conservative speakers—and particularly Dr. Tolmie—to suggest a condition which is not in accord with the fact-s.
The original Delicious apple tree on the old Jesse Hiatt
farm, near Peru, Madison county, Iowa, is said to be well
loaded with apples again this season. This tree, now

without a ki|y that will unlock the padlock upon the gate.
The tree ia from a sprout below thc graft of what was a
tree of the old Ram-bo variety, which died a year or so
after transplanting. The late M, J. Wragg, prominent
ureeryman of Dallas county, procured somQ cuttings from
the tree years ago, and irom them propagated what he
called the' 'Hawkeye variety, but it was never pushed.

Hostesses should lay in a heavy supply of refreshments when they expect to entertain guests who-like to

exhaustive survey of the energy consumed ln dancing
made by a group of Scandinavian scientists at Uut physiological institute of the University of Helsingfors, has
just been received in this country, which setts down in
precise figures the number of calories used in different
kinds of dances. The waltz went to the bottom of the
list with 3.99 calorie|s used per hour per kilogram of body
weight. The schottische, beloved of grandfather and
grandmother, scored .02 of a point below the modern foxtrot, using 4.76 calories whilel the latter required 4.78.
The polka, another institution of grandmother's day,
needed 7.56 calories an hour, while the mazurka, evidently the fastest dance the learned iScandinavians could get
anyone to practice for them, took 10.87 calories, or almost
twice the amount of ent'rgy consumed by the stonecutter
plying his trade.

As a wild animal, the horse is found only in the open
arid or desert plains of Central Asia and Africa. Those

yellowish green walls ba|cause this color has been found
to have a 'tranquilizing and cheerful influence. Rooms

furnishings.

newsboys do, and as the day for the drawing approaches
they grow more ahd more excited, eacli one claiming that
he Is about to sell the lucky ticket. Hunchbacks are the

An amazing picture of future cities built fur above the

shady fori Is ts or even above lakes or lhe sea. Platforms
will be provided, too, for airplanes, he believes.

a. sua of foliage girds our garden round,
Bipt not a sea of dull unvaried green,
Sharp contrasts of all colors here are seen;
The light-greejn graceful tam/arinds abound
Amid the mango clumps of green profound,
And palms arise    like pillars gray, between;
And o'er thel quiet pools the seemuls lean
Red—red, and startling like a trumpet's sound.
Uut nothing can be lovelier than the ranges
Of bamboos to the eastward, when the moon
Looks through their gaps, and the white lotus changes
Into a cup of silver.   One might swoon
Drunken with beauty then, or gaze and gaze
On a primeval Eden, in amaze.

8HE FORGOT TO 8AY 'THANK
YOU" |
This, incident, which shows that
one person at least was mllltantly
convinced that courtesy ought to be
appreciated and returned, happened
some thlrty-flva years ago ln Minneapolis. In those days they used
small electric street cars with seats
running the length of thel cars and a
coal stove in the middle on one side.
It was ln the "rush hour" ln the
morning; the seats ware all occupied,
and there were.many "strp hangers.'
A man was sitting next to the stove
reading his nciwapaper; from his
dress he appeared to be a plasterer.
A wonvan about twenty-live years old
cam-) in and took a strap directly in
front of him. He did not notice her
for a few minutes; then he got up
and said to her, "Take this seat,
lady." • |
"I thought it was time somo one
gave me a seat," she said and sat
down. • j
iShe was hardly in the Beat before
the man inquired, "Madam, did I not
leave my gloves in the seat?"
The woman got up, and the man
slipped into the seat again and com-
memced to read his paper. There
were no gloves in the Beat, and ho
did not look for them. I
The people in the car began to
grin, then to smile and then to laugh
heartily. The woman turned bright
rod and left the car aB soon as she
could.
JAPANESE   PROVERBS
The character and the ideals of
any nation are pithily expressed ln
the popular proverbs that have become part of the everyday speech of
the people. Here Ib some of the
interesting proverbial philosophy
of the Japanese, collected and printed in the London paper Answers:
One Japanese characteristic, perseverance, is expressed in the saying: "Fall seven times, stand up
the eighth time.'' Another proverb
in the same vein declares: "A road
of a thousand miles begins with one
step."
The Japanese equivalent of "casting pearls before swine" is "giving
gold coins to a cat,," and instead ot
"a wolf in sheep's clothing' they
speak of "a wolf dressed in priest's
robes."
When a Japanese wishes to explain that a thing is quite impossible he tells you that one might as
well "learn to swim in a field" or
"lap up the Ocean with a shell."
"A well-minded man looks at the
sky through a reed' and "The heart
ls the same at three as at sixty" are
tdher Japanese -gems. Picturespue
too are "At the foot ot the lighthouse lt Is dark" and '""When the
hen crqws the house goes to ruin."
The latter saying indicates the Japanese view of feminism. Equally
pithy is: "There is no medicine for
love-sickness or for a fool."
WHY  8HE   BOUGHT  A  BASKET
Addressing a Philadelphia Sunday
school, Dr. J. M. Buckley, the eminent editor and divine, related an ln-
cidsnt that' greatly interested the
children, ilie told ot meeting a
ragged, hungry-looking child on the
street one day and upon questioning
her found that she; had an invalid
mother and younger brothers and sisters who were without food. He e&v*
her a silver dollar and thep followed
her to see what she would do with it.
"Now, children," he said, "what do
you think was the flrst thing she
bought with that money? Hands up.'
Many children guessed,' but no answer proved to be correct. Finally
one boy at the back of the room ventured to put his hand up. The doctor asked for his answeir.
"A basket," said the boy.
"Correct!" cried the doctor, delighted. "Here's a boy that thinks!
Now, my lad, would you be willing
to go up on the platform and tell us
why you think it was a basket "
After a great deal of coaxing the
boy went up, but he was reluctant to
talk.
"Go on,* urged the doctor. "I'll
give you this silvet coin if you'll tell
me why you think she bought a basket flrst."
"H e - b e c a use," stammered the
youngster at last, "belcause I was ln
Canmden last Sunday and heard you
tell the same story there."

THE LETTER OF THE CAty \
.Over a hundred years ago,# relates Thomas Geerlng in soma
sketches of rural English lite, recently republished, a farmer living

fox, but of the two-legged human
variety. The village constable was
Informed and on the look-out; and
it was not long before he was able
to make an arrest He found the
thief in the wood entirely off guard.
- The lazy fellow waB pounced upon lying on the ground fast asleep,
with a duck beneath 41m, and,
though he protested he knew nothing about the bird, he was quickly
handcuffed and taken before the
nearest magistrate. Me was charged
with the robbery, the stolen -property, as- the constable triumphantly
said, being found upon him. But

A   BROVIDENTlAtrFIRC
The late Theododore Vail seemed
always to be looking for a chance
to give some worthy person an opportunity to get on. While he was
driving in the neighborhood of his
summer residence in Vermont,
Bays his biographer, Albert Blgelow
Paine, he saw a young man trying
to build some sort of house on a
piece of blackened land. Mr. Vail
drew up and talked to blm and
learned that a fire had destroyed
his house and that he was trying to
get a roof over his family by winter. The young man had not much
to work with, and his farm was
small. He had hoped to buy the
adjoining field, but was now unable
to do so.
Mr.   Vail   said    little -at the mo
ment,  but  waB  impressed  with   the
young fellow's  manner  and  words.
Returning home, he    discussed   the
matter wiith hits overseer and    discovered that the young man was a!
deserving citizen, and that the coveted    field was a part of   the   Vail;
farms.   Mr.  Vail  promptly provided;
a sum of money to restore the ruined house and with it sent a deed for
the land.   Nothing could have given
him    more    pleasure.   He    liked to|
make people happy by giving them
a   chance   to   live fuller and more
useful  lives.   If    they    found    that
chance    in  cultivating  the  soil,  his
pleasure was doubled.

-nSCOtt,
Centuries before the railways, the
automobile, the trolley car, or the
aeroplane, the Great Lakes were the
highways, and canoes the popular
vehicles of transportation, exploration and conquest. Leaving Montreal,
Quebec and other points, the great
La Salle, Marquette, Hennepin,
Radisson and MacKenzie, a gallant
crew ot explorers and adventurers,
passed through the Great Lakes on
their way to found Illinois, Indiana
and other states of the Middle West.
La Salle who went from Quebec to the
mouth of the Mississippi and paddled
his way bsck, made the Great Lakes
his highway.« He and his dauntless
companions found and lost an empire.
The hardships of these early ex-
{ilorers have been done away with
n modern travel on the great Lakes
but glamour or their expeditions and
the beauties of their route still
remain. Aboard one of the Canadian
Pacific lake steamers like the Assini-
boia or the Keewatin in the heart of
the continent, the fresh water sailor
leaves Port McNicoll situated on the
shores of the Georgian Bay, passes
the entire length, through Lake
Huron and the famous "Soo" canal
and loc-ks and into Lake Superior. The
journey requires only two days and is
through one of the most picturesque
parts of the Dominion.
The Port McNlcholl-Owen Sound
journey, aboard the Manitoba is
another delightful trip. The latter
port Is beautifully situated between
two high walls of rock at the southern
end of an arm of the Georgian Bay.
This is ono of the finest harbours on
the Great Lakes. The journey from
here to the "Soo" is beset with
scenic beauty, along the rocky coast
of the Bruce Peninsula that stretches
away to the north towards Man itoulin
Island. The great cliffs of this
peninsula rise up over 100 feet from
the deep clear waters of the Georgian
Bay.
From Port William, one of the
greatest grain centres in the world,
the traveller may proceed westward
across the prairies. Few transcontinental journeys can offer such a
delightful diversion in travel as the
Great Lakes trip. The traveller can
board the steamers at Port McNicoll,
travel one fifth of the way across the
continent and then resume hia raM
journey at the head of the Lakes. THE SUN: GRAND FORKS, BBITISH COLUMBIA
