Surf at
Sunbeams and Seabreezes
THE WAVES lift and flash and boom into sounding, sundazzled, shifting depths—the kiddies
laugh and scamper and build Panama Canals along the wonderful Atlantic shore—the gulls
cry, wheeling through the infinite mazy silence that lies, cloud-filled and slumberous, above
all the pleasant summer turmoil. It's so soul-satisfying to lie still on the warm sand that it seems
wicked to move. And yet, when you do shake off the sunbeam-fingers and sit up, the cool air slips
over your cheek and lifts your hair with so tinglesome a touch that motion—thrilled, ecstatic, ozone-
ful—seems man's natural medium of expression. You want to wheel with the gulls or jump joyously
with the red-sand-shovelled kiddies!
America is the youngest land in the world—the only continent where the primeval zest is still
on the job. When Europe was piling the vast and sombre Cathedrals of the Middle Ages, and Asia
lay in the exhaustion that followed antiquity, and Africa dreamed by the immemorial Nile, America
was playing tag with Hiawatha.
One day of mingled mist and seashine, Leif, the Icelander, beat his way to the cranberry shores
of Nova Scotia, as the Norse Stone at Yarmouth tells us. The fierce blue eyes that had faced the
blazing West of a hundred sunsets found "the frith which penetrated far into the country" as the
sagas aver, and "the island past which there run strong currents." To be sure the folk about
Nantucket scoff at the northern pretentions and claim the distinction for their own Buzzard's Bay.
But Leif, like Captain Kidd, abides on many shores and the eternal spirit of adventure that he typifies
sounds in every wave that strikes the Atlantic Coast.
Maine, with its sea-splitting capes, its streams and lakes innumerable, within the green gates
of its mountains, breathes of freedom—from monarchical tyranny, from slavery, from the chains of
office hours and social responsibilities. Nova Scotia, wave-circled, brine-drenched, apple-blossomed
Acadia, sings joyfully that here:
A man may shed his coat and tie,
And cast away his collar,
And learn to live in Nature's school
Who takes the poorest scholar;
And worship toward the fishing rod
Instead of toward the dollar! There are Atlantic Coast resorts, to be sure, where the girls perch vogueishly on the uncanny
strings of pink-striped hammocks, tied with blue linen streamers, and sit under poster-tinted sunshades in opal taffeta near-bathing suits that you mustn't get wet in. But such places are for the
over-sophisticated who can't unbend, or the under-sophisticated who don't know enough to want to.
The normal rest of us dive off the board at Katie's Cove at St.Andrews-by-the-Sea, or slip, carefree
and unsartorial, into the cool depths of Lake Memphremagog. Or, turning the corner into the
mysterious waters of red-sanded Fundy, get a catch of trout and a coat of tan on some of
the innumerable white-laced trout streams that tumble into the tide-wracked bay.
But the student who goes Nova Scotiaward doesn't need to revert entirely to primitivity in order
to have a good time.    There is history as well as mystery in Acadia, and sentiment as well as salmon.
In 1604 Champlain sailed from France to Fundy with a compass at his hand and a chanson on
his lips. The young adventurers "directed their vessel between the pillars of a narrow passage to the
east of the bay, found themselves within a spacious basin surrounded by a ridge of hills, and, after
having searched from side to side, chose an isolated spot around which were low meadows and good
springs." Here, near the present Annapolis, the first settlement of white men north of the Gulf of
Mexico was planted, gayly and perilously, in a land of sunsets, storms and savages.
This careless grace of French invasion led, however, to a sorrowful, if picturesque, conclusion
when, in 1755, the pious and peaceful Acadians were uprooted from their gardenland and the fragile
loveliness of the Evangeline story was carried sbuth to bloom under Longfellow's window a century
later. The visitor may still see the Well, with its rough stone coping, the gnarled and sturdy willows,
the long salt reaches of the diked haymeadows where the patient peasants painted a little of their
own peace into the landscape.
South, in Clare, the descendants of the returned exiles still live and love and leave large families
along the leisurely Acadian roads, where "the mellow lin-lan-lone of evening bells" calls visitor and
inhabitant alike to simple lives and fervent prayers and the sweet sleep of tired limbs and consciences
at rest.
And somewhere here, by Fundy tides, the man may leave Mrs. Homebird and the bairns to live
the lazy, lovely days of Scotia-by-the-Sea, to eat Annapolis peaches in clotted cream and the delicate
plump herring that Digby serves her guests, while he slips the leash of civilization and melts into the
woods seeking—does it matter?—moose, if it be the season, trout, partridge, black duck, woodcock.
What he really wants is Lake Kedgemakoogee or one of the hundred other still tarns of the unten-
nanted wilderness, agleam under the stars; a quiet pipe in the drifting canoe; a camp sunk in the
pines; a story-teller's fire flickering against blackness. He didn't leave the click of the typewriter
to listen to a Victrola grind out Castle walks.
And the best part of the Atlantic Coast resorts is that no place is too far from any other place.
He's still within touch of Mrs. Homebird, on the big hotel verandah that she loves, when he
stretches out on his bough-bed in the middle of nowhere, with the wail of the loon in his ears.

Niagara Falls
The Historic StXawrence Vallet)
The Valley of the St. Lawrence provided the oldest
route to the Middle West and is still one of the main
highways between the Middle West and Europe. It
has its own individual old-world character, and is a
particularly pleasant route to travel by in the hot
days of summer, owing to the atmospheric influences
of the river and lakes by which the track passes.
Between Detroit and Toronto lies pretty country,
with many prosperous towns. Toronto is a busy,
bright, up-to-date city of nearly 500,000 people,
with fine streets and attractive residences. The
University of Toronto has about 4,000 students and
Toronto is a great musical and educational centre.
Its frontage on Lake Ontario provides wonderful
opportunities for water sport, and Niagara, so to
speak, is just round the corner.
From Toronto to Montreal there are two routes, the
old line through Peterboro (where canoes are made),
and the new Lake Ontario Shore Line. A number
of delightful summer resorts have grown up along
the shore of the Lake, and the beautiful trees of
this region, together with the expanse of blue water,
combine to make it exceedingly pleasant as a route
of summer travel. One can, of course, also travel to
Montreal by steamer through the Thousand Islands.
Ottawa, the capital of the Dominion of Canada,
is on the main line from Minneapolis and St. Paul
to Montreal and is well worth stopping off at. Its
fine Parliament buildings, still beautiful in spite of
the fire, its commanding position on the Ottawa
River, and its fine parks give it an air of peculiar

Montreal is to-day a city of business. * * * One
finds many quarters of ease, luxury and picturesque-
ness, but by the riverside and at its heart and centre,
under the electric tramway wires, its character is
betrayed and becomes dominant. In these great
streets commerce and finance reign. Montreal is a
city of material labor, of practical activity, the headquarters of the Canadian Pacific Railway and other
great institutions. More than half of its citizens speak
French as their native language and much of Montreal,
particularly in the eastern districts, is French in
character. The Chateau de Ramezay is a picturesque
old building, containing a museum and many memorials
of Old Montreal. It was built in 1705, in the days of
the old aristocratic French regime, and was the scene
of many historic assemblies till it passed in 1745 into
the hands of the Compagnie des Indes and became
the centre of the fur trade. In 1763 it again became
the governor's residence (British by this time) and
remained so for a hundred years, with the interval
of 1775-6, when it was headquarters for the Continental Congress. Here Benjamin Franklin tried to
persuade the Canadians to forsake the British flag,
and the printing press he brought with him is still
preserved in the house. Magnificent views of the
city and surrounding country may be obtained from
Mount Royal, the mountain park behind the city
The Place Viger is a delightful hotel, operated by the
Canadian Pacific Railway in this city.
From Montreal to Quebec is just five hours by
tram, the track passing through country which is
almost entirely French, with white houses and long
strips of farms characteristic of this part of Canada.
Even for those whose intention is to follow the main
line to the Atlantic Coast, a side trip to this typically
old-world city is worth while.
In the Chateau Frontenac, Quebec possesses a
hostelry which for beauty of site and luxuriousness
ot appointments cannot be surpassed anywhere.    It On the Ramparts,
Que   b
is a magnificent new fireproof hotel, operated by the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company, and stands at the
eastern end of a splendid esplanade known as Dufferin
Terrace, just below the King's Bastion of the Citadel,
commanding delightful views of the St.Lawrence
as far as the eye can reach—down past the Isle of
Orleans, across to Levis and beyond, up stream to
Sillery, and, to the left, the country along the beautiful
valley of the St.Charles River. The hotel itself is
erected on a historic spot of more than ordinary
interest, the site of the old Chateau St.Louis, so
famous in Canadian history, and once the vice-regal
residence of governors of Canada. And what a view
you may have from your window at the Chateau
Frontenac or from the terrace upon a summer afternoon! Beneath you are clustered the sag-roofed
houses of the Lower Town, a veritable bit of Normandy, with quaint dormer windows, wooden bridges
from roof to roof, chimneys and coigns hugging the
dark rock, and streets of the narrowest. Beyond is
the wide splendor of the St. Lawrence, dotted with
ships and steamers and red-sailed smaller craft. And
then, as a background, are the populous heights of
Levis, the gentle Isle of Orleans, the villages of the
Cote de Beaupre, the ranges of mountains in perspective, wearing their clouds like mantles. Quebec
is filled with places of historic interest. Its appeal is
world-wide. Perhaps its chief attraction to many
visitors is the scene of the famous battle (September 13, 1759), on the Heights of Abraham, where
both the English and French commanders, Wolfe
and Montcalm, lost their lives. The Falls of Montmorency are about nine miles below Quebec.
Farther on eastward is Ste. Anne de Beaupre, the
most famous shrine in the new world. The interior
of the Basilica is heaped high with the crutches and
sticks of the cripples who have come here to be
cured. It is said that nearly a quarter of a million
pilgrims visit Ste. Anne each year.
from the
Citadel Lake Memphremagog
from Newport
Ttemphremagog & Ttegantic
Returning to the main line, we leave Montreal
from Windsor Station and, crossing the St. Lawrence
by a fine double-track steel bridge, turn east to
Farnham and Brookport, where the Boston Air Line
diverges for the White Mountains and Boston (see
page 8). A little further on Magog (population, 4,000)
is situated on the shore of Lake Memphremagog, a
magnificent sheet of water, thirty miles long, dotted
with many islands and surrounded by rugged, heavily
wooded hills. This lake is a justly popular resort
for summer tourists. Its two famous mountains —
Orford (3,300 feet) and Owl's Head (2,300 feet) —
are the most imposing of the neighboring heights.
From Magog Station a steamer makes a circuit of
the lake daily during the summer season, touching
at all important points, including the fashionable
resort of Newport, Vt., at the southern extremity.
Bass, pickerel, maskinonge and landlocked salmon
are fished for in the lakes.
Sherbrooke, the metropolis of the Eastern Townships, is an exceedingly pretty place. Here connection is again made with Quebec Central to Levis,
opposite Quebec. The falls of the Magog are well
worth seeing.
Megantic is a rare spot for sportsmen. There is
fairly good accommodation at the hotels here, and
guides for fishing and shooting trip can be secured.
Lake Megantic is twelve miles long by from one to
four wide. Near Lake Megantic is Spider Lake,
where the clubhouse of the Megantic Fish & Game
Club is located. . .
At Boundary the mountains which divide Quebec
from Maine are passed, and the route lies for 200
miles through a State which has 20,000 square miles
of lakes, woods and mountains, 5,000 streams, and
1 521 lakes, many of which are restocked each year
with fish by the State and National Fish Commissioners. *M^

Moosehead Lake is its largest sheet of water,
covering in area 120 square miles, with an extreme
length of forty miles and an extreme width of twenty
miles. It lies 1,000 feet above the sea, under the
shadow of Mount Kineo, which is 1,000 feet higher
still. Over 5,000 canoes leave the lake each year
for canoe trips. The new Mount Kineo House and
Annex can entertain 500 guests in royal style. The
buildings cost a million dollars, and no time or money
is spared in making the 500 guests feel they are
having a good time. A nine-hole golf course, yacht
races, tennis courts, motor-boating, baseball with
exhibition teams, a rifle range, well-stocked fishing
waters with trout, togue and landlocked salmon —
something is there for everybody, whatever his tastes.
Needless to say, there are charming walks, while
from the summit of Mount Kineo there are the most
magnificent views in Maine. A fleet of steamers
circumnavigates the lake.
At Brookport the air line from Montreal to
Boston leaves the main line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, touching the southern end of Lake Memphremagog at Newport, where the train travels over
the Boston & Maine System till St.Johnsbury, the
junction for the Maine Central lines through the
White Mountains, is reached.
The Connecticut River is crossed by the Maine
Central Railroad between Lunenburg, Vt., and Scott's
Junction, N. H., and romantic mountain scenery
flanks each side of the train, through Whitefield
and Carroll, until the plateau upon which Fabyan's
and Bretton Woods are located is reached and the
incomparable view of the Presidential Range and
Gates of Crawford Notch bursts into view. Presidential Range I

A rival attraction to Mount Washington itself is
the superb Mount Washington Hotel, nestling amid the
hills at Bretton Woods. This fireproof caravanserie
cost upwards of two million dollars and aside from
being the apex of half a dozen motor tours, is the
recognized centre, both socially and geographically, of
the White Mountains. From here a network of steel
rails and motor roads unwind themselves in all directions. A huge indoor swimming pool, Cave Grill and
Foret de Danse, tennis, eighteen-hole golf course,
bowling greens, walks and drives of matchless beauty
afford entertainment to guests and across the golf
links the sister hotel, the Mount Pleasant House,
affords the same attractions and facilities for enjoyment. A half mile distant is the famous old Fabyan
House, with its historic associations, and starting point
for the summit of Mount Washington, over the first
cog-wheel mountain railway in the world. Rising
with a grade of 2,000 feet to the mile, it has climbed
the 6,290 feet to the summit of Mount Washington,
where a new Summit House was opened last season
with the boast of never having  had an accident.
In the 400 square miles of peaks within the White
Mountains are fifteen rising to over 4,000 feet in
height, and two millions of acres of forest are included
in the foothills. Of the many resorts, farthest north
is Dixville Notch, where the Balsams accommodates
500 guests and has the finest eighteen-hole golf course
in the hills, beside having its own private fishing
camp and waters stocked from a private trout hatchery.
Bethlehem, on the highest plateau east of the
Rockies, boasts a country club with eighteen-hole
golf course and tennis courts and over thirty hotels,
of which the Sinclair and Uplands are the largest.
Maplewood, one and one-half miles distant, has an
eighteen-hole golf course and is a famous social
centre. The New Waumbek, upon which over $100,000
has been spent since last season, has an eighteen-hole

endless opportunity for spending the summer in great
hotels, boarding-houses of home comforts and moderate rates, or one may hire an abandoned farm or
camp site or even a pretentious villa, if he elects to
have his own menage. Trout fishing and motoring
are two great inducements to one to summer in the
Switzerland of America, and every sort of accommodation at every desired rate may be had here. Pure,
water and bracing air of high altitudes make the
White Mountains second to no resort in the country
in the matter of healthfulness. Their accessibility
from all points and superb railway service from
Boston, Portland, Montreal, Quebec and New York
and western points, have added much to their popularity all over the United States.
The history of Portland (Maine's largest city) is
the history, varying in locality, of the typical early
settlement, the story of hardihood, exposure and
untold peril.
Once away fr. m the smoke of industries one is
in the land of Longfellow and Whittier, the former
by rights of nativity, and the latter by the supreme
glory of his poetic genius, which will live while the
waves of the Atlantic glisten.

At Portland the stranger will find pretentious
hotels with excellent service, where a home may
be established, and from this point excursions may
be made to the many points of interest.
Leaving Portland, Casco Bay, with its 365 islands,
we will follow the southward shore a short way.
Just twelve miles from Portland brings us to one
of the finest bathing beaches in America —Old
Orchard. This summering place was settled about
1613 and is to-day the objective point of thousands
of people who enjoy sea-bathing, the surf and the
cooling breezes from the ocean.
Twelve miles further south is the beautiful village
of Kennebunk, settled in 1650. This picturesque
old town teems with places of historic interest. A
drive over the King's Highway, laid out in the
sixteen-hundreds, would repay the visit. This is one
of the most popular spots in Maine for cottages
although there are ample hotel accommodations.
Kennebunkport has been fittingly described as a
place where country and seashore meet, where all
attractions that Nature can provide blend into a
perfect whole.
We will retrace our steps to the eastward, touching
at Cape Small Point, Popham Beach, Five Islands,
Boothbay, Christmas Cove, South Bristol, Pemaquid.
We have now arrived at the mouth of the great
Penobscot River, where its waters spread into the
big island-dotted bay. Rockland, the first port on
the river and one of Maine's largest cities, is situated
here. The Samoset Hotel, under the management
of the H. H. Ricker Sons (Poland Spring House), is

also located at the Rockland breakwater, just a
little bit removed from the city. Camden, snuggled
at the foot of Mt. Hope, lies just a little way "up
river." This is the summer home of Mr. Cyrus
Curtis, the Philadelphia publisher.
Three centuries after Champlain sailed beneath
the granite range of the Mount Desert Mountains
and the French Colonists had broken ground upon
its fertile shore, a group of summer residents who
had long found pleasure in the various beauties of
the island, established themselves, and from then
on this island has grown in popularity as a summer
resort. This island is one of grand formation. Its
coast line is broken with deep irregular indentations,
towering cliffs and the islands lying off it are so
numerous that it has been estimated their continued
shore line would exceed twenty-five hundred miles.
Bar Harbor is the terminus of the Mount Desert
branch of the Maine Central Railroad. Here are
situated many fine hotels, ample in every way to
accommodate the throngs of summer visitors.
Sailing, bathing, driving, golf, tennis, fishing and
every sort of outdoor recreation may be had here,
or in fact at any of the coast resorts.
Maine does not haste to speed the parting guest,
and the face once known is a friend always. And
what illustrious sons have been hers: Longfellow,
Fessenden, Preble, Reed, Blaine, Butler and a
host of others, who have all made their home within
her boundaries, a rare legacy, for their works do
live after them.

Rangeley Lakes,
Looking Toward
Bald Mountain,
Rangeley, Maine
The Rangeley region is reached via Rumford Falls
and Bemis, over the Boston & Maine Railroad and
Maine Central Railroad, and embraces a vast, diversified territory, broken by lakes, ponds, rivers, streams
and mountains, criss-crossed by trails and lumber
roads and dotted with comfortable camps, where
either fisherman or hunter may secure excellent
accommodations. Situated at an elevation (2,000
feet) equal to that of the Crawford House in the
White Mountains, the lakes are fringed about by
woods and mountains of wildest splendor, while from
their waters are taken every season, with no manifest depletion, many of the largest game fish killed
in inland waters. Small steamers ply the chain of
lakes leading to camps which are woodland perfection.
These camps are, indeed, a striking feature of the
Rangeley region. They are usually constructed of
logs, with accommodation for four or five persons, a
dozen or so forming a cozy community, connected one
with the other by plank walks. The neighborhood
idea is enhanced by the maintenance of a common
dining-room, accommodating fifty to one hundred
In their order from east to west the names of the
lakes of the Rangeley chain proper, with their elevation above sea level, are: Rangeley or Oquossoc,
1,511 feet; Mooselucmeguntic, or Great Lake, 1,486
feet; Mollechunkamunk, or Upper Richardson, and
Welokennebacook, or Lower Richardson, 1,456 feet;
and Umbagog, 1,256 feet. Cupsuptic, the smallest and
most attractive of the system, is an extension of
Mooselucmeguntic; Loon Lake, five miles, and Lake
Kennebago, ten miles north, are reached by buckboard
from Rangeley and offer unexcelled opportunities for
trout and salmon fishing, particularly with the fly.
Clear Water Pond, Varnum Pond and Wilson
Lake, attractive sheets near Farmington Village,
within the borders of the "Rangeley region," are all
well stocked with landlocked salmon, trout and bass,
and have lately become very popular resorts.
12 The Exchange, Half Way to
Kennebago Lake, Maine
Canoeing is a Great Sport
at Great Lake
Belgrade, Maine
B e t g rad e
Kennebec County, Maine, holds a remarkable
chain of lakes that abound in trout and bass and
have gained world-wide fame for their charm of
Lake Maranacook, at the head of which is the
delightful town of Readfield, has an enviable reputation for its fishing.
Several years ago there was as fine trout fishing
as could be found anywhere in the State, but the
pickerel were let in and soon killed off the trout.
A few years ago bass were introduced, which soon
exterminated the pickerel, and as all the brooks
and tributaries to the lake have been closed, the
trout are there again in numbers. Over 500,000 fish
have been placed there within the last few years
from a private hatchery at Belgrade, and the State
hatchery at Monmouth has added several thousand
so that visitors now have great sport, which will
increase each year.
Lake Cobbosseecontee, reached from Augusta and
Winthrop, Me., is another good trout and bass lake.
You will get fine bass fishing in Great and Long
Ponds, of the Belgrade Lakes, Kennebec County,
Me., six miles by stage from the Maine Central
Railroad, Belgrade station. The drive is over a
good country road, through a farming district that
is rolling and attractive, the road skirting the shores
of Great Pond.
Belgrade Lakes is a small village lying between
Long and Great Ponds, and as it is only a few
hundred feet from one pond to the other, it is most
conveniently situated for the fisherman.
Long Pond is rather the prettier of the two, being
about eight miles long and perhaps a mile and a half
wide at its greatest width.

Fishing ^Hunting in
With its immense forest area intersected by a
network of rivers, which run swiftly to the sea from
the lakes in the high ridges, New Brunswick offers
ideal fishing and hunting, not only for those who
can afford to belong to a sporting club or even
maintain their own lodge, but also for those who
desire less expensive sport and take advantage of
the many free streams, or those rivers and camps
reserved by some of the leading guides, such as
Harry Allen, Adam Moore or Murdock Mackenzie.
So far as hunting is concerned the rules governing
the Guides' Association are a model for the rest of
the world, no two guides hunting over the same
territory, so that accidents are exceedingly rare
The Guides' Association protects the sportsman
against unfair charges, and the leading guides have
prominent log cabins (or camps, as they are called)
with cot beds and mosquito curtains, which eliminate many of the hardships that the unsophisticated
sportsman usually associates with camping out.
The guides are expert woodsmen and canoemen,
and in many cases are substantial farmers, who are
such good sportsmen at heart that they love to take
the opportunity of getting out in the woods. The
rough forest roads require a good deal of teaming,
especially in connection with hunting, as the moose
in season get well back from civilization and from
the railway, but the moose are certainly there when
you do get back, and the health-giving exercise and
magnificent sport make any expense worth while.
14 Camp D
a Beauty
A New Brunswick moose grows antlers of immense
size and its head is a much-prized trophy. After
the ice has broken and the drive has swept the
winter's cut of logs down the rivers, the salmon
fishing becomes fast and furious. The New Brunswick salmon are fierce fighters and as an eighteen-
pounder is no uncommon size there is sport here for
the gods. Just as fierce in their way are the trout
which rise from their cool beds to the fly in June
and July. New Brunswick is essentially a fly-fishing
province and the guide looks askance at the angler
who fishes in any cruder way, except, perhaps, late
in the year in the lakes. Large-size flies are what
most of the guides recommend.
There are many famous fishing and hunting
resorts readily accessible from points on the
Canadian Pacific Railway in this beautiful province.
Plaster Rock is starting point for the Tobique and
Nepisiguit rivers, Bristol for the Southwest Mira-
michi, Edmunston for Green River, McAdam for the
Magaguadavic, while Fredericton, with its excellent
sporting outfitters, is one of the most convenient
centres at which to meet guides, and has comfortable
hotels, where the change can be made from city
wear to the rough clothes worn in the woods. It
must be remembered that good guides must be
engaged well in advance and those who intend to
take their sport seriously, would do well to write
to the General Tourist Agent of the Canadian Pacific
Railway at Montreal, some time ahead if they are
not acquainted with the names of guides and desire
to be put in touch with them.

Fredericton, N. B.
Reversing Falls,
St. John
St. John River,
Capetown Creek
The direct route to the Atlantic Coast north of
Maine is by the Canadian Pacific main line, which
has already been described as far as Moosehead
Lake. McAdam is the first important point the
train reaches after re-entering Canada from the State
of Maine. Those bound for St. Andrews-by-the-Sea
(see next page) branch off here, travelling, no doubt,
on the through car from Montreal. Fredericton
Junction is where the branch turns off to the Provincial
Capital, Fredericton, charmingly situated on the
banks of the St. John River. The St. John drains a
territory larger than any river on the Atlantic Coast,
except the St. Lawrence, and is navigable for steamers
two hundred miles. No more delightful trip can be
imagined than that on the steamer between Fredericton and St. John, the busy port at the mouth of the
The giant falls and the rapids further up the
river have quieted at Fredericton to a noble stream,
rolling majestically through a land of beautiful trees
and fertile farms and orchards till Kennebecasis
Bay is reached, as wide and deep as the English
Channel at Dover.
St. John is an all-year-round terminal port for
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and is making great
industrial and commercial progress. It has great
historic interest, owing to its connection with the
old French pioneers, and with the United States
Empire Loyalists, who crossed the boundary at the
time of the War of Independence.
16 Algonquin Hotel.
St. Andrews, N. B
5t* Andretas bvi the Sea
Nature has done much for St. Andrews-by-the-Sea,
New Brunswick. No prettier place can be found on
the Atlantic Coast for a summer holiday. Here are
two of the best golf courses in America. Here, also,
the visitor finds a delightful bathing beach, excellent
boating, numerous tennis courts and croquet lawns,
an electric-lighted bowling green, charming drives,
good fresh and salt-water fishing, pleasant society
and many other attractions. The golf links at Joe's
Point, overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay, are unrivalled
in North America. They are under the skillful
care of John Peacock, a well-known professional,
trained in the Royal and Ancient game at St. Andrews
in Scotland.
Perfectly constructed roads, forest-lined and shaded,
run in all directions, reaching sheltered spots by ocean
and inland lake. The favorite drives are to Chamcook
mountains and lakes and to the Glebe and Bocabec
(seven miles) at the head of Passamaquoddy Bay; the
shore road bordering the river; the Bar road to
Mowatt's Grove, and at low water across the bar to
Minister's Island. This latter drive presents the
novelty once experienced by the Children of Israel —
that of going through a passage in the sea, which
had fallen back on either side. This drive takes
one through the bed of the ocean twenty feet below
sea level at high water. Add to these attractions
the invigorating sea breezes and you understand
why St. Andrews is the perfect summer resort.
There is excellent sea bathing at half a dozen
different places about St. Andrews, the most frequented spots being the Block House Beach and
Katie's Cove, the latter a charming placs only three
minutes' walk from Algonquin Hotel.
The Algonquin Hotel is a modern, fireproof hotel,
operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway during the
summer months, with sleeping and dining accommodations for three hundred people. Several cottages
are also operated in connection with the hotel and
are to be let for the summer season, extending from
June 1st to the end of September.
Golf Links at
St. Andrews-by-the-Sea,
New Brunswick Nova Scotia and the Land of Evangeline are just
across the Bay of Fundy from St. John, and the
Canadian Pacific Railway provides a steamer route to
Digby as well as a rail route round by Windsor and
Digby is a beautiful hill-climbing seaport. Its
most famous products are its cherries and its delicate, plump, small, smoked herring, affectionately
designated as "Digby Chickens." It does a large
business, too, in catching, drying and exporting cod
and haddock, and the toothsome titbit called finnan
haddie. But Digby is a veritable Sleeping Beauty till
June brings the summer tourist to caress her into
activity. Then her population swells as if by magic,
her lawns and paths and orchards ring with laughing
voices, and assume a butterfly gaiety with the glitter
of bright summer gowns. She has long and lofty
piers jutting far out into the tide, forming a favorite
promenade. Digby has fleets of boats—pleasure
boats, fishing boats, yachts. She has bathing-houses,
and is abundantly equipped with hotels and summer
cottages.    Digby is maritime, breezy, tonic.
Yarmouth, at the southern end of the peninsula of
Nova Scotia, is reached from Digby by the Dominion
Atlantic Railway or by steamer direct from Boston.
Yarmouth is picturesquely situated along a slope
parallel with the harbour, which is a beautiful piece
of water at high tide. Across the harbour are bold,
wooded islands, and wide flats which the flood tide
transforms to a placid lake. The houses of Yarmouth are almost invariably surrounded by well-kept
hedges, to which the cool moist air imparts a delicious
and lasting greenness. These omnipresent hedges
are one of the first features to catch the visitor's
eye—especially if we have come from sere August
landscapes. In the hottest summer the thermometer
here hardly goes above seventy.
Glace Bay
Evangeline's Well,
Grand Pre ]V
o v a
About the city are beautiful drives, fairest of
which is that which leads past Milton Ponds, as they
are called, a lovely chain of lakes. Another pleasant
drive is to the surf of Maitland Beach. Other desirable expeditions take one to the lovely Tuskets—a
marvellous archipelago, at the mouth of the river,
and a wilderness of lakes and tributary streams
about its source. These are famous fishing and
hunting regions.
Wolfville, the headquarters of visitors to the
Land of Evangeline, is a prosperous community, with
snug inns and comfortable, private boarding-houses.
Three miles distant, to the east, is Grand Pre,
itself, now a rich but scattered farming settlement.
It is on the line of the Dominion Atlantic Railway,
and travellers who are passing through, obtain from
the car windows a good view of the scene of the
Great Banishment. There are the storied meadows,
and there, close to the station, are willows planted
by Acadian hands. On the slope behind the station
are gnarled French apple trees, and stiff French
poplars, and a short way further on is the Gaspereau
mouth, where the exiles embarked. The car windows, indeed, afford a swift panorama of what might
be called "Views from Evangeline." The ancient
Acadian village, which Colonel Winslow and his
New Englanders depopulated so effectually in that
eventful autumn of 1755, is supposed to have
extended jn a long, thin line from about where the
Grand Pre station of the Dominion Atlantic Railway
19 now stands to somewhere near the next station of Horton
Landing. Then, as now, the Acadians trailed their villages
along a single street. Close to the station is a row of
gnarled willows, where, suitably enclosed, is "Evangeline's
Well," and near which were unearthed some blacksmith's
tools, sufficient to justify tradition that this was the very
site of the village smithy. In the immediate neighborhood
were discovered foundations of a large building, which
may have been the chapel in which the Acadians were
imprisoned before they were sent on board the ships.
Halifax, with its unrivalled harbour, capable of holding
all the navies of North and
South America, and yet m"
leaving room for a few
more, is located on a peninsula and founded on a rock,
rising at the Citadel to a
height of 256 feet above
the water. Like Victoria, on
the Pacific Coast, it is pronouncedly British—its naval
and military connection
with the Old Country being
linked up in past and present history. Very beautiful
is the stretch of water
known as the Northwest
Arm, and Bedford Basin,
with its ten square miles of
safe anchorage, is a fair
sight,  with   its warships,
liners, yachts, and light craft.    Lovely drives to be recom-j
mended   are  such   as  that  which   leads   down  the   Point
Pleasant road and up the Northwest Arm, or round Bedford j
Basin,   returning   by  Dartmouth.    Excursion  steamers ply j
on  the   harbour  and   enable  one to visit  McNabb's  and
George's islands and many other points of interest.   The
city of Halifax  is full  of historic interest and  has many
fine buildings, such as the Provincial buildings and Govern- j
ment  House,  with  its  stately Council  Chamber.    In the J
centre of the city is the "Grand Parade," a square which I
Bringing in the Moose
dates from 1749, when Halifax was a palisaded camp
defended by the British against the Indians and the French.
Cape Breton, at the extreme northwest of Nova Scotia,
is really a group of islands, with so much ocean about them
that their virtues as summer resorts are unique. The
Bras d'Or cuts the so-called cape in two.
For about fifty miles its waters are sheltered from the
ocean of which it forms a part, and in this length it
expands into bays, inlets and romantic havens, with islands,
peninsulas and broken lines of coast—all combining to
form a scene of rare beauty.
The Bras d'Or waters
^4 have a surface area of 450
square miles, and while the
width from shore to shore is
as much as eighteen miles in
one place, there are times
when less than a mile separates shore from shore.
Whycocomagh, Baddeck
and Grand Narrows are
three of the most popular
resorts for summer bathing,
sailing and fishing.
Sydney, an important
industrial centre in Cape
Breton, has a magnificent
harbour which has an irresistible attraction for yachts,
motor boats and canoes.
Louisburg, with its old fortress ruins, is forty-two miles
away by the Sydney & Louisburg Railway, and between
them is Mira, with a perfect beach and lovely river, at
the mouth of which are the leaping tuna fish, running up
to 800 pounds in weight. Fifteen miles up the Mira River
is Sangaree Island, with a comfortable hotel, while many
other spots invite the camper. Louisburg was once a
city with walls thirty-six feet high around its circuit of
two and a half miles. Now it is a ruin which carries sufficient historic interest to attract many a traveller to its
romantic neighborhood. 1         HOTEL SYSTEM
