CANADA is a magic Picture-Book. Its pages live.
The sun shines over and through them ; cloud shadows
play hide and seek with the golden rays, across landscapes of luminous loveliness. Now it is a picture of mountain majesty, solemn and superb in its solitude. Now a busy
city with wheels of industry merrily turning, and people
passing to and fro, grave or gay.
There go great liners arriving in fascinating seaport-
scenes, and sailing forth to greet the dawn or follow the
sunset. A wide page here reveals the boundless prairie—
waving grain and shadow-set sheaves patterned together
under the arch of heaven's fathomless blue. Silver is outspread broad and bravely by the Great Lakes ; and, crowning
all the contents of these jewel-studded pages—the glacier-
reflecting glories and myriad marvels of the Rocky Mountains.
From noble river and smiling countryside, over fragrant
fruit-lands, angler-enticing streams and lakelets, by cosy
farm and incense-breathing lumber camp, through throbbing
streets and down shining river-roads of pleasure, follow the
picture paths of Canada. Reach the high summits of the
Rockies. Look forth across five hundred forest-clad mountain monarchs with their snowy crests.
There is no nook or corner in all that mighty panorama
which cannot leave in  your heart a picture—a Canadian
picture ever to be remembered and rejoiced in for its vitality
and inspiration.    Here are a few, chosen as representative
from thousands which the camera has caught.   How
many more, and more beautiful, await your own
eyes and your own camera when you visit Canada!

Just across Lake Ontario are Niagara

reached, beyond description impressive. Their illumination at night
by 1,320,000,000 candle-power in
multi-coloured searchlights makes a
magical effect.
To traverse the country between
Niagara Falls and Toronto is to view
fruitful orchards and luscious4 vineyards in the " Garden of Canada " ;
but a pause at Hamilton, Ontario,
reveals a thriving industrial city
abundant in beauty and interest.
Here, too, there is history; for

defence of her borders. Hamilton, Ontario—a busy manufacturing city Shooting the Rapids at French River, Ontario

Canada is a veritable paradise for the sportsman,
for its large areas of wild territory offer such
opportunities for hunting and fishing as might
well set the imagination afire. Not only has a wise

sport is also available at moderate cost, and the
sporting regions are within easy reach of railways.

And now, having passed ihe Great Lakes
and the long stretch of forested land ihat
surrounds them, we have reached the prairies.
Here, outspread for hundreds of miles, is the
land of fertile farm and far-flung furrows,
limitless as the sky, the kingdom of wheat and
Winnipeg is the metropolis of the prairies,
with spacious streets, handsome buildings, and
verdant parks. Within its limits twines the
Red River, murmuring memories of old Fort

But there are many other cities—such as

canvas and camp-fire, saddle, stirrup, and spur

to the Rockies—

region that forms

separating the
Pacific slope from
everything which
lies east. A famous mountaineer
once described the Rockies as fifty
or sixty Switzerlands rolled into one,
Towering mountains, snow-capped
peaks, glaciers, swift rivers, enormous
national parks, deep forests—such
does    this    region    contain.      The
Canadian Pacific crosses the Rockies,
reaching at one point an altitude of
5,300 feet, while good roads radiating
from Banff, Lake Louise and other
centres, and good hotels and chalet-
bungalow camps, have established the
visitor's comfort.

From Lake Louise one begins to descend a little
to meet the Kicking Horse River before re-ascending
to further ranges of the Rockies. On the way down
we can pause at Wapta, or take a detour by car into the
Yoho Valley, running trench-like to a converging point.
At both these places are chalet-bungalow camps ; at
Lake O'Hara is another, set in the heart of the wilderness, with no motor road to it—only a seven-mile
trail for riding or hiking. Emerald Lake is as; widely
known as Banff or Lake Louise. & IM.

Trail riding in the Rockies-r-especialfy with the
organization of a Trail Riders' Association, which holds
annual rides—has gathered to itself thousands of devotees.
So, too (from the spectator's seat) has the famous Calgary
" Stampede "—the annual joust of buck-jumpers, tourney
of lariat slingers, and triumph of the " ten gallon hat."
And something must be said of Canada's winter—a
carnival of winter sports that kindles the enthusiasm of
younger Canada and now attracts a very large number
of visitors from other lands. The Rockies passed, our course
is downwards to the Pacific Ocean
through the province of British
Columbia, with its magnificent
resources and mild climate. On
the way there are many regions
given over to fruit farming—such
as the Okanagan Valley, where the
forest has been tamed to give
place to apple, pear, peach and
cherry trees in profusion.
Vancouver, the province's largest
city, is one of the world's greatest
ports. Not only the outlet for
local production, but also the
gateway to lands beyond the
sunset, it has a history of only fifty
years : for before the railway reached
here, this busy, modern city was
but a forest clearing.
However, Victoria, on Vancouver
Island, three hours away, is older,
and has become—because of its
beauty .and climate—a verv favourite Gold, silver, copper, nickel, coal, lead, zinc—these are some of the minerals Canada produces.

This is not primarily a book for manufacturers or investors : yet even the most casual
holiday-making visitor cannot fail to be impressed with the riches with which Nature has
endowed Canada. Her store of natural resources
is vast. Agriculture is, of course, the largest
industry : but Canada also has abundant mines,
forests,    water-powers,    and    fisheries.      Still
further, she has an industrious and progressive
population, who are developing these resources,
and who are rapidly advancing their nation
Ljto being one of the important manufacturing
countries of the world. Great opportunities still
exist in the Dominion for the establishment of
further industry.

PRINCIPAL        ROUTES     —     CANA
and     Associated      Compan
was incorporated in 1881 to construct a railway
line across Canada and to connect the eastern
portion of the Dominion with the then newly developing West and the Pacific Coast. The main line was
completed in 1885, and shortly afterwards through
traffic was commenced.
Since that date the Canadian Pacific has been one of
the principal agencies in the expansion of Canada,
and has become not only a national, but an international institution. As the country developed,
additional railway lines were, of course, constructed,
until now the total mileage owned or operated
(including lines in the United States) is 21,195 : but in
addition to this, the company has entered into other
enterprises and is thus able to provide the World's
Greatest Travel System, making contact with every
phase of travel requirement.
Its Atlantic steamships—a magnificent fleet—link
the Old World with the New. Its Pacific steamships
carry the process further by providing a direct Westward route, with through connections from Britain,
to the Orient and to the South Seas.
Its sleeping and dining car services, restaurants,
hotels, and chalet-bungalow camps, house and cater
for the traveller. Its express and telegraph services
administer to his financial and other demands.
Its Cruises offer delightful ocean holidays, long and
short, to many lands.
Its rolling stock consists of 2,048 locomotives,
3,341 passenger cars, and 85,162 freight cars.
Its main line, from Montreal to Vancouver, is 2,886
miles long. On its system in Canada alone it has over
1,400 stations.
-   It operates three transcontinental trains a day to the
Pacific Coast, from Montreal, Toronto and St. Paul.
