Corridor and Drawing Rooms, Chateau Frontenac
UEBEC is like a beautiful woman; seemingly perfect in
her summer gown, she yet discloses new beauties when
clad in her winter furs. Those who have only known
this Mother City of Canada in the glow of the summer
sun will find she possesses charms as potent though utterly different
when the snow turns the whole landscape ,
into a fairyland of bewildering, dazzling
Quebec is a halting place between two
hemispheres; she stands on what is now the
direct and more and more preferred route
to India, Asia and the Islands of the Pacific.
From the West the Pacific fleet
of the Canadian Pacific Railway will bring this summer
representatives of all the British
Dominions Beyond the  Sea, Qra^bec  eua& ttte Cttat^aa 3P^outenac

special Embassies from China and Japan, and countless other
travellers hastening to the Coronation. From the East the Atlantic
"Empresses" of the same Company land here right at her doors
tourists making the Grand Tour, Big-game Hunters on their way
to   the woods and the wilds, and always
the mighty streams of immigrants with their
faces set steadfastly and hopefully on   the
Eldorado of   the Western   Provinces.    All
pause here a moment to preen their wings
before   further flight.    In   and around  the
Chateau Frontenac may be met any one in
j    the world, soldiers from Simla,
\   friends   last   encountered   in
Capetown, millionaires from
New York,   Paris   and   the

Mandarins from the Celestial Empire, a cosmopolitan, always a
brilliant, throng. For this is a great social centre, and under
the auspices of the Dominion's new Governor-General, H.R.H. The
Duke of Connaught, who with his staff will spend a portion of each
year at the Citadel, Quebec looks forward during
this autumn and the next five years to being more
and more the social metropolis of this Continent.
Among the first returning migrants in the
sunny merry month of May, arrive many a
couple lately wed to spend here perhaps the
sunniest days of their life in these perfect
surroundings, where everything is done for
their comfort, and yet so unobtrusively that
they   can   enjoy   the   solitude*
which is all they desire, from C^^^   axtb i±ie Cha±£eta jproutenac

the world for the time. Quebec loves to have them and makes them
welcome in the way they would choose, by taking their presence
as so much a matter of course that no head is turned to stare, no
whispered comment pursues their path.
Later on in August when America pours
in her thousands across the border by motor
and by rail, scores of martyrs to Hay Fever
seek this pure northern air, fortified by which,
they know from past experience, they can bid
defiance to their dread foe. American doctors
know this, too, and so, year by year,
the tide of visitors swells and the
Chateau Frontenac perforce
grows   to welcome them.

Dujferin   Terrace and the Ghateau
For without boasting it may well be said that the Chateau
is Quebec—the centre of its modern, everyday life; the City's
dances, banquets and bridge parties are given within its walls:
everyone meets everyone else at tea-time in its attractive Tea Room
i n winter or in the Terrace Cafe in the summer.        & t
Dufferin Terrace under the Chateau's windows is the promenade of the City, and surely
no other city has one that can vie with it in
the beauty of its view, in the exhilarating
freshness of its air. In summer a gay crowd
sits and saunters listening to the military
band or drinks its tea at the little tables set
outside the cafe. In winter the Toboggan
Slide lends life, healthy, rosy-cheeked, vivacious life to the scene, and the

twinkling fairy lamps light up load after load of gay tobogganers far
on into the night as they spin down the ringing grooves doing
their quarter of a mile in something under thirty seconds. Cold ?
Well, yes; but who cares for that in this air that tastes like dry
champagne—that strips at a draught ten years off a man's shoulders ?
Black  Care  has a  poor  time  attempting  to
cling to the back of a toboggan, or when   a
pair of snow-shoes or skiis are handy!
And all the while away on the skyline
lie the Laurentian Mountains with their chain

way. From the Chateau Hall a man disappears one day with the
casual remark that he is going to spend the next six months exploring, or that he has a week to spare and is after his first moose; and
his end being attained he presently, after much hard work and
primitive living, returns to the Chateau where, perhaps, his family
await him, to shave and dress and sit down to
dine in civilization again. The trout fisherman with a good horse or motor car can in a
summer afternoon work deadly havoc among
the speckled trout with a Brown Hackle
or   Parmachene   Belle.

as much on the last day of a visit as on the first, as a picture
simply perfect, incomparable, that never palls. As the night falls
Levis becomes a hillside of twinkling lights while the big liners,
and perhaps a man-of-war, blaze like
gigantic glowworms on the water. At all
seasons of the year the river breezes ensure
cool nights and refreshing sleep.

look forward to the day when as many will be moored
there all flying the same flag that floats, day in day out the

Quebec is rich in noble characteristic
architecture, churches and church bells.
The former came to her from France in
the period of its greatness, when all those
chateaux and palaces were erected which
are now alike the admiration and the
despair of   the   modern   architect.

Indian warriors, next a vantage ground from
which he hurled defiance at the English m
