Good the World Over CANADIAN PACIFIC
The Canadian Pacific Railway
runs from the Atlantic to the
Pacific Ocean. Its liners sail from
Vancouver and Victoria to Honolulu, Japan and China, and from
Montreal, Quebec and Saint John
to Great Britain and the Continent.
It operates winter cruises Round
the World, to the Mediterranean
and the West Indies, and a winter
service to Bermuda. Its chateaux
and hotels, which form a convenient chain across the continent,
represent the latest word in comfort and luxury. Its telegraph
service employs 225,000 miles of
wire and furnishes cable connections to every part of the world.
Its express service affords rapid
transit for goods and its travellers'
cheques are current all over the
world. Canadian Pacific offices
and agents are to be found everywhere.

Lake O'Hara
THE Canadian Rockies!    There is a glamour in the very name.    But until 50 years ago—until, that is, the Canadian Pacific drove their line through the
mountain fastnesses, the Rockies were a closed book to all but the Redmen, trappers, prospectors and outcasts consumed with the wanderlust.    To'day,
the Rockies have been opened up—and opened up intelligently by the Canadian Pacific.    At Banff, Lake Louise and Emerald Lake palatial hotels in keeping
with the natural beauty of their surroundings have been built.    Elsewhere—at Lake O'Hara, Wapta Lake and Moraine Lake, the Yoho Valley, Castle Mountain
and Radium Hot Springs—less formal ''Bungalow Camps" have been constructed, camps which consist of small cabins surrounding a central chalet.
The summer social centre of the Canadian Rockies is baronial Banff Springs Hotel at Banff. As gay as Paris, as fashionable as the Lido—with superb
cuisine and service, orchestras, light opera company, concerts, gala nights—this great Canadian Pacific hotel offers a vacation life so rich and full that the dis'
criminating renew it, year after year.    The unsurpassed natural advantages of the region have been adapted for your enjoyment.
There's a golf course a mile high, built by the Canadian Pacific under the supervision of Stanley Thompson at a cost of over $450,000. The first tee is
a few yards from the hotel.    The greens are bent grass and to suit all types of golfers there are three sets of fairways to each hole.
There are also four fast, hard tennis courts, croquet grounds and badminton courts, and two superb swimming pools. One is filled with water from
warm sulphur springs, the other from mountain streams. And there are bridle paths and trails for riding, paths for the hiker and scenic roads like the Banff'
Windermere for the motorist.    There is fishing in nearby lakes—and climbing?    Whymper described this region as "fifty Switserlands in one"!
Lake Louise, forty miles away by road or rail, is probably the most perfect gem of scenery in the world. Nestling 5,644 feet above sea level on the far
side of a mountain palisade, amidst an amphitheatre of peaks with Victoria Glacier as the back'drop, it is a dramatic palette on which the Great Artist has
splashed His most gorgeous colorings.
On the margin of this lake, in an Alpine flower garden, stands the Canadian Pacific's Chateau Lake Louise. If there is no golf course here, there is
everything else—swimming in the warmed glacial water of the Chateau's 100 foot pool, motoring, hiking, riding, climbing, to such spots as Moraine Lake, Lakes
in the Clouds, the Valley of the Ten Peaks and other spots too numerous to mention.    There is, too, the very joy of living in such surroundings.
A trifle less formal, though no less beautiful than Banff Springs or Chateau Lake Louise is Emerald Lake Chalet in Yoho National Park. A picturesque
structure surrounded with bungalows and equipped with every modern convenience, it is an ideal spot for those whose tastes lie to hiking, riding, fishing and
climbing rather than to golf and tennis.
But if your vacation budget is rather limited or you want to take your scenery straight; if your inclination lies to the privacy of a comfortable log cabin
and you enjoy simple, well'Cooked meals, there are Bungalow Camps to meet your needs. Special booklets are issued regarding them which may be procured
from any Canadian Pacific agent.
It isn't necessary to take your car out west. There are private cars you may hire or you may take one of the many organised excursions in fast, com'
for table busses. Outstanding among these excursions is the Motor Detour, which is designed to give through passengers to or from the Pacific Coast an
opportunity of seeing the chief sights in Banff, Lake Louise and Yoho National Park. Going west you leave your train at Banff, continuing your journey from
Golden; going east, vice versa. While the Detour can be made in 24 hours, two or three days can comfortably be spent on it, stop-over privileges being
allowed at any point en route.
Another excellent motor excursion is the three day circle trip, The Lariat Trail. This runs from Banff via the Banff'Windermere road, Golden and
back to the starting point.    The distance of the trip is 300 miles.    Full information regarding motor excursions is available at the hotels.
EACH year towards the end of August a Highland Gathering and Scottish Music Festival is held at
baronial Banff Springs Hotel. The skirl of the bagpipes re'echoes through the mountain fastnesses, the
tartans of the Scottish clans flash on the spacious terraces while the stirring games and dances, brought
by their ancestors from the Old Country, challenge the prowess and skill of Scots drawn from every part
of the continent.    In the evenings the Scottish Music Festival provides the entertainment and six thousand
miles from their place of origin the songs and melodies of Scotland are interpreted by consummate artists.
No less colorful as a spectacle are the celebrations during Indian Week (third week in July) when four
hundred Stoney Indians from the Morley Reserve, 40 miles east of Banff, gather for their tribal sports. Superbly
mounted on steeds resplendent with gorgeous trappings and headpieces, the braves and squaws in their cos'
tumes of white buckskin, trimmed with beadwork and ermine, and their feathered head'dresses, make a dignified
and memorable pageant.
Trailing the clouds on horseback by day, camping in a tepee or at one of the Bungalow Camps in the cool
of the evening—these are the joys of trail riding. Those who have ridden fifty miles or upwards in the
Canadian Rockies are qualified for membership in "The Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies"—an organic
tion which aims at encouraging travel on horseback through the mountains, the maintenance and improvement
of old trails and the building of new. Each year an Official Ride and Pow Wow is held towards the end of
July when Trail Riders and aspirants to the title get together. Full information at the hotels, or from the
Secretary-Treasurer, Room 324, Windsor Station, Montreal.
The Annual Exhibition and Stampede at Calgary is an event which no one should miss. Cowboys and
Indians from every part of the continent vie for the honors in roping, broncho'busting, bull'dogging and the
other activities which are but part and parcel of this western carnival week. The event is held early in July
and reservations should be made early at the Hotel Palliser, Calgary, Alberta.
ANADA'S Evergreen Playground on the seaboard of British Columbia is a year 'round recreation
paradise.    While this playground has no well'defined boundaries it centres in Victoria, Vancouver
Island, and may be taken as including also the north Pacific coast around the cities of Seattle and Van'
Victoria, the capital of the Evergreen Playground, is a city of
beautiful homes and gardens. Life here is unhurried for living in
Victoria is an art. Centre of the city's social life is the Canadian
Pacific's stately hotel, The Empress, which stands in a beautiful
flower garden that fronts on the placid waters of the city's Inner
Harbour. Royalty has graced its suites, world travellers gather
in its spacious public rooms—connoisseurs whose discriminating
taste demands the superlative in cuisine and service. Adjoining
the Empress is the Crystal Garden for swimming and dancing.
In this natural paradise guests of the Empress enjoy year
'round golf, riding, swimming, fishing, tennis, yachting—all
outdoor recreations. One of the features of the winter season is
the Empress Mid'Winter Golf Tournament in February for the
E. W. Beatty Trophy.
Situated as it is on Vancouver Island, Victoria is linked with
the City of Vancouver and Seattle by the Triangle Service of the
Canadian Pacific's British Columbia Coast Steamships. Svelte and
aristocratic, these ships *n their every attribute merit the designa'
tion "Princess" which marks their class.
Named after a gallant captain of discovery days, the City of
Vancouver is built where the mighty Fraser flows into the Gulf
of Georgia. Busy, industrial, with a magnificent landlocked
harbour, she has also unrivalled delights for those on holiday bound.
Occupying a key position in the city is the Canadian Pacific
Hotel Vancouver—a hotel with dignity and personality. From
its roof garden you see in the distance the widespread picture of
the Fraser; to the west, the Gulf of Georgia, and below the green
stretch of Stanley Park and the curving Marine Drive. Here, as
elsewhere in the Evergreen Playground, there are sports and
recreations to suit the most exacting.
from a watercolor by A. C. Leighton, A.R.B.A.
The climate is practically identical with what physicians term the "climatic optimum".
The warm Japan current tempers it and long hours of brilliant sunshine, cool nights and a minimum
of rain are assured. Outdoor recreations, usually regarded as peculiar to summer, are possible every day
of the  year.
Seattle, third point on the Canadian Pacific Triangle Route,
is a delightful metropolitan centre where it is always refreshingly
cool. Its climate has placed Seattle first in health for years on
United States Health Bureau Records. The city's public markets,
its wideflung waterfront and its scenic boulevards interest the
visitor while innumerable trips to alluring points in the sup
rounding region may be made by rail, ferry, steamship or
automobile. There are few such alluring spots in America or
Europe as the Evergreen Playground.
The Klondyke—the Trail of '98—Sam McGee—you have
probably thrilled to the glamour of these names in the pages ot
Jack London or Robert Service. You have read of the stampede
for gold—of those days, not so long ago, when "never a law of
God or man ran north of Fifty'three". But have you ever visited
this country?
To'day you can do so in comfort by the Canadian Pacific
Princess Steamships which operate by the Inside Passage. To
Alaska and back by this route is a two thousand mile, nine'day
journey from Vancouver with six ports of call. You visit industrial
plants in British Columbia and Alaska, salmon canneries, fish'oil
production plants, vast paper mills, gold mines, smelting plants
and other points of interest. It is a unique experience—truly
a great adventure.
The ships in the service are large and modern and of the most
comfortable sea'going type. Staterooms are light, cozy and well'
ventilated and on each ship there are a few de luxe rooms with
private bath. The community rooms—dining room, observation
room, lounges and smoking rooms—are bright, cheerful and
charmingly furnished.    All the ships have dance floors.

Lake Louise
Discriminating travellers this year are going west with one of three main objectives in view.
Some will concentrate on the Canadian Rockies—that awe-inspiring sea of almost seven hundred
peaks over 6,000 feet in height, aptly described as "fifty Switserlands in one". They will visit
Banff, Lake Louise and Emerald Lake and spend some of their time, no doubt, at the Bungalow
Camps. Others will go to Canada's Evergreen Playground on the Pacific Coast to revel in the
beauties of Vancouver and Victoria. Still others will take the Canadian Pacific Inside Passage
to Alaska, land of the midnight sun and the Trail of '98. But the wisest of all will have their
nearest Canadian Pacific agent plan an itinerary to include all three of these magnificent regions.
Then there will be no might-have-beens—no regrets.
Only the briefest mention of these resorts is here possible,
furnished on application to any Canadian Pacific agent.
