and the
A day may come when Man's ears will be so perfectly attuned to the voice of Nature that paragraphs
and photographs depicting the attractions of vacation
places will no longer be necessary. When that time
arrives, we can imagine Canada's lovely eastern provinces
exclaiming to eager hordes of vacation seekers, "Look here,
and you need look no farther."
For here, in the Provinces of Quebec, New Brunswick
and Nova Scotia, are vacation paradises to suit the
whims, to meet the wishes, to please the tastes and demands of everyone. Quaintest of old-world cities to
explore. Primeval forests, dim and green and cool.
Mountains old as time. Rivers broad and placid and
rivers that break into spume each foot of their tumultuous
courses. A million jewel-like lakes of a million shapes and
sizes. Miles of golden sands edging limitless vistas of
In countless places, the reel of the fisherman sings,
paddles flash silver, and bathing suits of a thousand hues
make beaches vivid and gay. "Fore" resounds on a
hundred splendid golf courses. Smart orchestras play on
cool nights for dancing throngs. Magnificent hotels offer
magnificent accommodations and magnificent meals. Moderate-rate resorts are everywhere, and simple establishments that offer wholesome fare and scrupulously clean
accommodation at lowest of rates. No one needs look far
in Eastern Canada for their ideal vacation spot.
Threading this vast playground are the railway lines
of the Canadian Pacific, bringing even the faraway areas
within easy travelling distance of the great centres of
population of Canada and the United States.
sppl Chateau Frontenac, Quebec Quaint Cities of
The Province of Quebec is France transplanted to
the New World, an ancient Gallic stronghold
that has retained the traditions and customs
brought from the mother country three centuries ago
by the forefathers of the present French-speaking
inhabitants. Here in countryside and city, the old
and new blend in artless beauty. English-speaking
folk live side by side with neighbours who speak no
other language than French. And twin capitals of
this amicable land are the quaint cities of Montreal
and Quebec, enthrallingly interesting in themselves,
and the gateways to the marvellous summer playgrounds that surround them on all sides.
Montreal. A thronged harbour front, a serrated
skyline, church spires everywhere, giant industrial
plants, beautiful residential districts and public
parks—these are Montreal, and yet not Montreal, for
no such purely physical elements can be entirely
responsible for that individuality which makes
Montreal a city unique on this continent.
To see Montreal in all its outflung beauty one must
climb Mount Royal, the mountain from which it
takes its name. Below extends the multitudinous
array of roofs which shelter its million inhabitants.
Beyond the close-packed roofs is the broad, gleaming
ribbon of the St. Lawrence, highway for ships from
all the ports of the Seven Seas. On the river's
nearer edge lie gigantic grain elevators, sprawling warehouses, factories and outthrust piers. Here, Duchesses of the Atlantic, 20,000-ton liners, dock one
thousand miles inland from the sea.
Historic Background. As one looks down on
this vast city, the mind goes back to the days when
the Mountain was nameless, when the only shelters
on the Island were the log huts of the Indians. To it,
in 1535, came Jacques Cartier, discoverer of the St.
Lawrence, and climbing this very mountain conferred on it the name it bears to-day. Seventy years
later, Champlain, founder of Quebec, built a tiny
trading place within the present city's limits. Then
in 1642 Maisonneuve founded here the colony of
Ville Marie, planting the seed from which the present
vast city has grown.
Wars have left their imprint on Montreal. Its early
days and nights were rendered hideous by Indian
attacks. In 1759 its soldiers fought under Montcalm at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, and
losing saw French Canada pass four years later into
the hands of the British. The brief interlude of
strife brought to it in 1776 by the American Revolu
tionary War was followed by the War of 1812, and
since that time Montreal's development has been
entirely peaceful. Today, filled as it is with buildings
and monuments that recall older and more stirring
times, Montreal is the financial, commercial and
industrial capital of Canada, and the second largest
port of North America.
Montreal's Charm. But in history alone you
cannot find the secret of Montreal's charm, so come
down from the Mountain Look-Out and explore the
kaleidoscopic streets. Newsvendors display their
wares on the pavements, newspapers and periodicals
in French and English. With a rattle of syllables,
they pass the time of day in French with a purchaser.
You approach, and their greeting is in English! On
street-cars, you hear the conductor announce street-
names in both languages. Theatre placards, advertising signs, public notices, all are bilingual.
And these churches, whose spires lift into the sky
wherever you look ? In vasty Notre Dame on Place
d'Armes, 10,000 kneeling worshippers intone their
prayers in French. In the Anglican Christ Church
Cathedral, it is English you hear. And you feel sure
you have the secret of Montreal's wonderful appeal,
ascribing it to this combination of languages.
Then you wander along Rue St. Denis where children prattle in French. Or to Bonsecours Market to
hear habitant from the countryside and housewife
from the city bargain volubly in the same language.
It will captivate you, this French quartier, and you
are tempted now to explain Montreal's fascination in
terms of French alone. No sooner done than you are
struck with the city's cosmopolitanism. You hear
other languages than English and French on its
streets, see books and periodicals in a dozen other
languages on its newsstands.
Finally you give up trying to analyze Montreal's
charm, or you decide it is in its veritable melange of
contrasts that its appeal for you lies. For typically
American in its aggressiveness, Montreal still retains
its respect for tradition. It has its bustling waterfront, marts of commerce and trade, but it has, too,
its walled seminaries and cloistered convents. Near
its skyscrapers are one-storied buildings whose
crumbling stones tell of bygone centuries. It has
its great French institution of learning, Universite de
Montreal, and McGill, one of the greatest of English
universities. It has its banks and stock exchange and,
also, its shrine of healing, Brother Andre's. It has
its gay night clubs, fashionable hotels and theatres,
and its art galleries, museums, libraries. Montreal at Play. If Montreal is as enigmatic as
before, if its riddle is still unsolved, study its people at
their play. They are sports-loving, these Montrealers.
In the vicinity oT the city are numerous golf courses.
At Bluebonnets and Dorval, the race-goer is as keen
as at Saratoga or Ascot. They have succumbed to
the lure of baseball, and have their International
League team. In winter, hockey is almost the sole
topic of discussion. They love hunting and fishing,
and within their province they have abundant facilities.
They delight in automobiles, and superb motor
roads radiate from the city. Innumerable points of
interest are scattered along them. There is the
Trappist Monastery at Oka. Who has not heard of
Oka cheese ? There is Lachine with its rapids to
" shoot," a quaint French town that dates back to
La Salle, hero of Mississippi explorations. There is
Caughnawaga, the Indian reservation; Chambly's old
fort; Tom Moore's house at Ste. Anne's, and a wealth
of other scenic, historic and sporting attractions.
Duality of culture, the juxtaposition of old and
new, cosmopolitanism, historic background—all these
combine to make Montreal a city of enthrallment.
Railway Services. Canadian Pacific Railway lines
and connections link Montreal with every point in
Canada and the United States. Montreal is the
headquarters of the Canadian Pacific Railway and its
two stations, Windsor Street Station and Place Viger
Station, are located within easy reach of the city's
hotels and shops. Adjoining Place Viger Station is
the Canadian Pacific Place Viger Hotel.
Interesting Books. Four interesting books on
French Canada are published by Canadian Pacific:
"Old Montreal With Pen and Pencil," written by Victor
Morin, LL.D., illustrated in colours by Charles W. Simpson,
R.C.A. ($1.00).
"A Quebec Sketch Book," written and illustrated in colours
by Esther Brann  ($1.00).
"Chansons of Old French Canada," harmonized by Margaret
Gascoigne and illustrated by Ethel Seath  (50 cents).
"Legends of the St. Lawrence," written by Katherine Hale
and illustrated in colours by Charles W. Simpson, R.C.A.
The Boulevard, Trois Rivieres
Quebec. Up hill and down hill it goes, this old
city of Quebec, with a Gallic abandon and the unexpected always meeting you around the corner. Its
inhabitants will tell you that their city is the most
beautiful in the world, not boastfully but with that
assurance that comes from implicit belief. Perched
on Cape Diamond, over which it sprawls in unplanned
grace, and commanding a superb view of the St.
Lawrence, its claim to be one of the most picturesque
of cities will be contested by none.
Half of its charm is its citizens. They are intensely
lovable, these French Canadians, and intensely proud
of their traditions and the part their ancestors played
in the exploration of the North American continent.
And justly so. From Quebec to the Rockies, from
the Gulf of Mexico to Hudson's Bay they explored.
Historic Background. What a gallery they make
—Jolliet and Marquette, who in 1673 discovered the
Mississippi; Lasalle, who took possession of that vast
basin in the name of the King of France; de Bienville,
founder of New Orleans; La Motte Cadillac, builder
of Detroit; and La Verendrye, who penetrated first to
the foothills of the Rockies. Where the explorer went,
the missionary went. Not without good cause is
Quebec referred to as the ''Cradle of North American
Civilization," and not without reason does this old
city attract increasing numbers of visitors each year
from every part of the world.
Quebec's Glories. On the Plains of Abraham is
a statue of Wolfe. On St. Louis Street is the reputed
headquarters of Montcalm. Immediately you are
reminded of that epic struggle between French and
English for mastery in the New World. On Dufferin
Terrace is the monument which commemorates
victor and vanquished alike, and symbolizes the
friendship that has existed for one hundred and
seventy years between the two races inhabiting
French Canada.
Days and nights are alike glorious in old Quebec.
Walk Dufferin Terrace, the quarter-mile board-walk
that commands such a marvellous view of the St.
Lawrence.    Listen to the famous French regimental
Ste. Anne de Beaupre band playing martial airs in the dusk while all Quebec
strolls by. On the right the Citadel towers. Down
below is Lower Town with its high-roofed, close-
huddled houses, Little Champlain Street with its
breakneck stairs, and that historic old Church, Notre-
Dame des Victoires. Before you is the broad band
of the St. Lawrence with the twinkling lights of the
ferry boats bearing away to Levis, or of "Duchess"
liners en route to Montreal. To the right in Wolfe's
Cove is the gigantic dock where the Empress of
Britain, Canadian Pacific's 42,500-ton Trans-Atlantic
liner, moors at the end of her record-breaking runs.
Quebec's Churches. Church spires rise on every
hand in Quebec. The Basilica, which was burned some
years ago, has been rebuilt, and it is here the Cardinal
officiates. But the religious life of Quebec is not
contained within the walls of any church. There
are chapels everywhere and cloistered convents, the
Seminary, hospices and hospitals where the needy and
sick are sheltered and cured. The ramifications of
religion in Quebec extend back to the very beginnings
of the city and are infinite in their extent to day.
Quebec's Caleches. The high, two-wheeled,
horse-drawn carriages you notice outside the Chateau
Frontenac are caleches, and their drivers are bilingual
encyclopediae on Quebec and the Quebecois. Under
the aegis of one of them, you can drive up and down
the fascinating tilted streets of the city, see the Parliament Buildings and Spencerwood, the residence of
the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Quebec.
Another delightful excursion, but this time perhaps
by automobile, is out to Montmorency Falls and to
nearby Kent House, where you may indulge in the
quietest of tea-hours after a splendid round of golf.
Quebec Bridge, largest single span jn the world, is
also something to see.
One of Quebec's most picturesque drives is to Ste.
Anne de Beaupre, world-famous shrine of healing
which attracts the faithful by thousands every year.
Past quaint old villages and farmhouses reminiscent
of old Normandy you travel along a smooth road, and
come at long last to that shrine which for centuries has
been a sacred place of pilgrimage.
Another delightful trip is to the Island of Orleans,
with its old churches, convents, seigneurial mills and
the undisturbed inhabitants who live almost as their
forefathers lived one, two and three centuries ago.
Each year artists from far and near essay to translate
into color the simple beauty of the island.
Chateau Frontenac. How perfectly the Chateau
Frontenac blends with its surroundings! Its size
alone would give it dominance anywhere—it houses
sixteen hundred guests—but the architect who planned and placed it must have had a very real appreciation of the site on Dufferin Terrace which he was
to adorn with it. For, standing where the old
Chateau St. Louis, residence of the French governors,
once stood, its old French Chateau exterior is in
perfect harmony with its surroundings. In the additions which have been made to meet the needs of an
ever increasing number of guests, the spirit of the
original structure has been preserved. To day it is one
of the most famous hostelries on the American continent, renowned the world over for its beauty, its
accommodations, its cuisine.

The Laurentians
The Laurentians. The Laurentian Mountains,
stretching like a great crescent shield over an odd
million acres between the St. Lawrence River and
Hudson's Bay, form one of the most delightful and
unspoiled vacation areas of this continent, a paradise
for old and young alike.
Green rolling hills, pleasant valleys where winding
rivers flow into tree-fringed lakes, the cool fragrance of
dark forests, laden with the fragrant odours of balsam
and spruce, the magic play of light and shade on the
hill-slopes, and distant entrancing glimpses of purple
mountains—this is the famed Laurentian country,
dotted with summer resorts, the haunt of fish and
game, a land of sunshine and cool breezes, of health
and recreation and sport.
Easily Reached. A Canadian Pacific Railway
line runs out from Montreal northwesterly to Mont
Laurier and brings every worthwhile section of the
Laurentians within a few hours' pleasant ride.
During the past few years many popular resorts have
sprung up close to the railway, and others are being
developed. What is it you seek ? Sophisticated
holiday life with good music, dancing, golf, tennis ?
Or those rougher pleasures of fishing, hunting, camping, long canoe trip in the great outdoors ? You will
find them all in this attractive region.
Northward Ho ! The Canadian Pacific train for
the Laurentians runs northwesterly across the island
of Montreal, across Isle Jesus with its pretty little
villages of Ste. Rose and Laval des Rapides, and
reaches the mainland at Rosemere. All these villages
are on the water, the two rivers crossed by the train
being branches of the great Ottawa River.
Proceeding along the mainland, the train comes to
St. Jer6me, the gateway to the Laurentians, with its
picturesque Riviere du Nord, and its golf course, and
in less than two hours reaches Shawbridge, where
boating and bathing are excellent, and which boasts
of a Lodge on its outskirts that overlooks a lovely
golf course. Roads lead out from Shawbridge to
other beauty spots. One of these is Lac lAchigan of
beautiful shoreline, with rugged fir and pine and gay
roof of hotel, cottage and camp glimpsed through its
trees. East of Shawbridge lies Fourteen Island Lake,
its islands and shore dotted with cottages and camps.
South of Shawbridge are five charming lakes, each
with its summer colony. Shawbridge and environs
have perhaps more organized holiday-making than
any other spot in the Laurentians. And yet ten
minutes farther along by train, and here is Piedmont with only the quiet of green hills, river and
bathing beach' Such are the Laurentians' contrasts! Alpine Inn, Ste. Mar

Ste. Marguerite. Following the Riviere du Nord,
the train climbs steadily past Mont Rolland with its
hotels and boarding houses, past little Ste. Adele
sitting so prettily high up on the mountainside, and
reaches Ste. Marguerite, one of the most popular of
Laurentian resorts. Here are one of the most
picturesque of golf courses, splendid hotels, good
boarding houses, beautiful Lac Masson, fishing,
bathing, boating, golf, tennis and riding, and many
delightful walks and drives through superb scenery.
Lac Oolahwan, summer camp of the Y.W.C.A., Lac
Charlebois and Lac des Iles lie to the north. "Old
Baldy," from whose peak fifteen lakes may be seen,
and Mount Venus challenge the skill of those who come
to Ste. Marguerite on climbing bent.
Val Morin, four miles past Ste. Marguerite, is
another of the Laurentians' most popular centres.
Here is marvellous scenery, and everything that the
summer vacationist desires: bathing in beautiful
Lac Raymond, boating, tennis, canoeing, fishing,
golf on a well-kept 9-hole course, and a wide choice of
fine hotels and boarding houses. Three miles north
is Scroggie's Lake with its beautiful old-world inn.
Ste. Agathe. Ste. Agathe, six miles past Val
Morin and with an altitude of 1,207 feet, is still another
of the most famous of Laurentiarf resorts. It is an
ideal health resort and boasts a golf course and many
fine hotels and boarding houses. Lac des Sables, on
which it is situated, has many fine bathing beaches,
and the surrounding country contains a plethora of
lakes and resorts. Within easy distance are Lac
Castor with the boys' Camp Kinkora, Salmon Lake,
Lac La Croix with its summer colony and Lac St.
Joseph. Beyond Lac St. Joseph are Lacs St. Denis,
Bois Franc, Jaune, Cornu, Les Trois Freres, Ste.
Marie and Beauchamp, all offering excellent trout
fishing. Lac Archambault with its comfortable,
well-equipped chalet lies twenty miles north of Ste.
Agathe and offers fishing and hunting in season unsurpassed in the Laurentians. This is the country
Morris Longstreth so brightly describes. Beautiful
Lake Ouareau is not far away with Camp Ouareau
for girls on its shore.
St. Jovite. Ivry Station, almost exactly one
hundred miles from Montreal, brings us to Ivry and
the north end of Lake Manitou, a pretty lake of little
capes and bays, with shores dotted with summer
homes. The next station is St. Faustin on Lac Carrf,
with hotels and boarding houses, and good tennis,
boating, bathing and fishing for trout and bass.
Seven miles north of St. Faustin by road is Lac
Sup rieur, with good hotels and two well-equipped
camps, and six miles northeast is Lac Quenouilles
with an excellent hotel and several camps in the vicinity. Six fine trout lakes lie within easy walking distance of the camps.
Nine miles farther on, the train reaches St. Jovite, a
neat little village with cottages and boarding houses.
Three miles north on Lac Ouimet is a beautiful inn
that looks across at Mont Tremblant, the highest peak
in the Laurentians. Here is every kind of summer
recreation: golf,  tennis,   boating,   swimming,   riding,
© A.S.N.
Golf at Gray Rocks Inn, St. Jovite music, dancing; and complete camping outfits, including guides, may be obtained for trips to northern
lakes.    In winter,^the inn is a centre for winter sports.
Lac Tremblant. Five miles north of St. Jovite
the train reaches lovely Lac Mercier, at the foot of
Mont Tremblant. Here are several hotels and
boarding houses, offering good facilities for water
sports and fishing. This is perhaps the most beautiful
section of the Laurentians, and Lac Tremblant, just
two miles away, is charmingly picturesque. On its
shores are four hotels and a lodge. Mont Tremblant
itself is under government control, 14,750 acres around
it being a National Park. Fishing in season is permitted in the Park.
Lakes follow lakes, resort follows resort. Six
miles from Labelle Station is Lac Labelle with good
hotels and bathing beaches. Near Lac Labelle are
Lacs Diamond and Charette, famous for their lake
and red trout. Bellerive, 21 miles farther on, has a
flourishing summer colony and boarding houses, and
two miles past Bellerive is Nominingue station, and
the celebrated Nominingue District. Within walking
distance of Nominingue are four lakes, Lac Bourget,
Lac Lafleche, St. Joseph and Ste. Marie. Big Lac
Nominingue, half a mile from the village, stretches in
marvellous beauty between low hills. On its shores
are Camp Nominingue, a boys' camp and two private
camps, and except for these and a dozen cottages the
exquisite shoreline is virgin territory. Chains of
lakes surround Big Lac Nominingue, affording splendid waterways for long or short canoe trips.
Barrette Station, one hundred and forty-eight miles
from Montreal, is the stopping-off point for Lac des
Ecorces, Lac Gauvin and Lac La Corne, famous for
their fishing and hunting areas. Mont Laurier, northern terminus of the railway line, is another famous
outfitting place for hunting and fishing parties bound
for the labyrinth of forest and waterways to the north.
St. Gabriel de Brandon. At the end of a branch
line of the Montreal-Quebec line, Lac Maskinonge is
really part of the Laurentians. Its headquarters,
St. Gabriel de Brandon, some 76 miles from Montreal,
is a splendid centre for this interesting district, and
on Lac Maskinonge itself are boys' and girls' camps
and a modern chalet hotel. Clear sunshine, excellent
fishing, hunting for deer and moose in season, are
among the attractions of this section.
Other Gateways. The North-Shore Line from
Montreal to Ottawa passes Montebello, station for the
aristocratic Log Chateau and Seigniory Club of
Lucerne-in-Quebec. Farther along Buckingham provides a convenient entry to the famous Lievre District,
with its hunting, fishing and canoeing attractions.
Gatineau District. From Ottawa another branch
line runs to Waltham through the Pontiac District, a
healthful region abounding in leased trout lakes.
Near Waltham is the torrential Black River, celebrated for pike, bass and pickerel.
Temiskaming and Kipawa. From Mattawa on the
Canadian Pacific main line a branch runs north to
Angliers, tapping the superb sporting possibilities of
western Quebec. In this unspoiled wilderness are
innumerable lakes, rivers and streams, deep forests,
where camping, canoeing, fishing and hunting can be
enjoyed to overflowing content. This is a moose,
deer and black bear country.
Laurentides National Park. North and northwest of Quebec City is one of the finest fish and game
preserves on the continent. In the heart of this
region is Laurentides National Park with its network
of cabins controlled by the Game and Fisheries
Branch of the Provincial Government, Quebec.
At the end of this booklet is a map of the Laurentian
country, and lists of hotels, boarding houses, camps.

St. Maurice Valley. Trois-Rivieres, situated on
the north shore of the St. Lawrence, at the triple
mouth of the St. Maurice River, is almost exactly
halfway between Montreal and Quebec. It is the
gateway to a vast territory full of forest and mineral
wealth, a great commercial and industrial centre and
the distributing point of a rich agricultural and dairying district. Second oldest city in Canada, it boasts
beautiful homes and interesting scenic surroundings.
Grand'Mere, situated on the west bank of the St.
Maurice, is on a branch line from Trois-Rivieres.
Shawinigan Falls, passed en route, has great electrical
developments and chemical industries, and Grand'
Mere has large paper and pulp making establishments
and a modern inn and golf course. Both Shawinigan
Falls and Grand'Mere are ideal headquarters for
trips into the good fish and game country beyond.
Grandes Piles. Two miles east of Trois-Rivieres
is Piles Junction, from which a branch line runs north
to Grandes Piles, centre of a remarkably attractive
field for the sportsman. Here, fishermen and hunters
outfit for their trips. Gamy speckled trout and other
fish inhabit the streams nearby, moose are plentiful
and deer also, and black bear is occasionally bagged.
La Tuque, 75 miles north by launch or canoe, is
another good  base  for  interesting  trips.
Lake St. John. Reached from Quebec, the Lake
St. John District is famous as the home of the landlocked salmon, noted for its fighting spirit. Roberval
and Chicoutimi are popular outfitting centres for this
district. At Roberval is a private fish and game preserve offering accommodation in comfortable log
cabins and good opportunities for moose, deer, bear,
speckled trout, landlocked salmon, pike, dore and
lake trout.
Canoe Trips.    No   sound   but   the   drip   of   the
? paddle, a shout of ''white water," the sudden swirl,
smooth water once more, a trail glimpsed through the
forest, a portage, another session of paddling and then
'     Rod and
—camp under the stars! They who have known these
need no invitation to know them again.
Some of the best canoe trips on the continent can
be found in the Laurentians, starting from Lac
Superieur, Tremblant, Archambault, Saguay, Labelle
and Mont Laurier. An interesting trip for experienced canoeists is from Lac Superieur up Devil's
River, through lakes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, Great Devil's
Lake and other lakes to the Mattawin and St. Maurice
Rivers and thus to Grandes Piles, whence return to
Montreal is by rail.
From Tremblant, you invade the Macaza District,
or by Lac Vert and other lakes enter Grande Lac
Cache and return to Tremblant in three or four days.
This is also for the experienced and not the novice
canoeist. From Labelle you reach the Maskinonge
River, part of a canoe journey to the Ottawa, and
also Lac Caribou and the Lac Cache District. Archambault launches you into a chain of smaller lakes
and from either Mont Laurier or Saguay entry is
made to the extensive Kiamika District.
Suggestions for these and other trips may be had
from the General Tourist Agent, Canadian Pacific
Railway, Montreal.
Fishing in the Laurentians. There are as good
fish in the sea as ever were caught, and in Quebec's
lakes also. Only they will stay there in spite of you,
unless you give some consideration to the "when,"
"where" and "how."
Trophies from St. Michel des Saints The "when" for trout is in May, June and September, though the early riser may get fair strings in
July and August. The "where" is almost any lake
in the Laurentians with the exception of the few that
have been fished out, and even these are being restocked. The great majority of the lakes are the
homes of the red and speckled trout, and many contain fine grey trout. Ouareau, Archambault and the
little lakes adjoining are particularly fine trout
haunts, while bass lurk thick in Lac des Sables,
L'Achigan and several farther north. The ''how"
necessarily is left to the fisherman's own judgment,
for never yet was a fisherman who did not have his
favourite fly and tackle and his own method of playing his fish.
Fisherman's luck of course enters the question, but
it is safe to say that in few quarters of the continent
is a good catch less dependent upon this ephemeral
ally than in the Laurentians.
Hunting in the Laurentians. When the leaves
turn golden brown, the hunter's thoughts turn to
forest trails and mountain lakes. He sees the partridge's sudden  flight,  the deer hesitant at water's
edge, the spread ol horns on the ungainly moose.
And then he is off to the wilderness.
Even the settled districts of the Laurentians may
yield good bags of partridge, and farther from civilization these birds are plentiful. Deer, too, are scattered over the whole district, but their true habitat
are the forests away from the railway. The Black
Mountain and Tremblant regions north to Mont
Laurier are real deer country.
But the great monarch of the forest, King Moose, is
the chief test of the hunter's skill and nerve, and its
habitat is in even more remote regions. Moose have
been shot near Tremblant, but for a real chance at
them you must invade the country north of Nominingue and Mont Laurier.
The season for moose is usually September 10 to
December 31. For deer, usually September 1 to
November 30. For partridge, usually September 1
to December 15.
For further particulars on all phases of fishing, canoeing and hunting, apply to the General Tourist Agent,
Canadian Pacific Railway, Montreal. From time to
time special bulletins of interest to sportsmen are issued

The Eastern Townships. Geographically, the
Eastern Townships comprise that district between
the St. Lawrence and the counties on the St. Francis
River. Historically, they are those townships settled
by United Empire Loyalists after the War of 1776.
In the townships are found old English names for
street and village and, in the earliest graveyards,
English tombs—a surprising fact in Quebec, which
was mostly pioneered by the French.
St. Johns. This fascinating district is reached
by a short railway journey south from Montreal over
the Richelieu River, rich in the old traditions of New
France. Fort Lennox, the old forts at St. Johns,
Chambly and Fort Montgomery recall those wars
waged by English and French for possession of these
fertile fields. St. Johns, less than an hour's ride from
Montreal, has long been popular as a site for summer
homes among residents of Montreal, and among its
attractions are a golf course, polo field, military
school and yacht club.
Brome Lake. At Foster, two branches leave the
main line, one to Drummondville and the other to
Fun and frolic at Brome Lake
Brome Lake. At Drummondville is the Manoir
Drummond, a modern hotel, and an excellent golf
course. On the shores of Brome Lake, a beautiful
sheet of water, an excellent motor road leads for miles
past well-kept lawns and gardens. To Knowlton, at
one end of the lake, summer vacationists come year
after year, attracted by its beauty and fine golf and
boating clubs. Here are the grounds and buildings of
the Knowlton Conference Association, which combines recreation with religious instruction. South, it
is only five miles to the lofty wooded hills of the Green
Mountains over a charming bit of road lined with
magnificent maple trees and through Bolton's Pass.

Eastern Townships
Lake Memphremagog. Continuing east we pass
Orford Lake at the foot of Orford Mountain, a bewildering mass that lifts 2 860 feet of rock and forest
above the rolling hills. Shortly past Orford Lake,
Memphremagog glitters into view, with Magog on
its upper end in Canada, and Newport at its lower
end in Vermont. Magog, on the Cherry and St.
Francis Rivers, has many summer hotels and boarding
houses. Lake Memphremagog offers attractive boating facilities and a fine steamer trip. Bryant's
Landing, Knowlton's Landing, Perkins' Landing,
East Bolton and Georgeville tempt the traveller to
desert the steamer and explore crooked streets.
At the lower end the boat calls at Newport, at the
upper end at the "Hermitage, a famous club with its
own golf links, tennis and badminton courts. In
Lake Memphremagog there is good fishing for
pickerel, maskinonge and landlocked salmon.
Sherbrooke. A short distance past Magog, we
come to Sherbrooke, commercial and industrial
centre of the Townships, situated at the junction of
the Magog and St. Francis Rivers. A beautiful city,
Sherbrooke owes its industrial pre-eminence to the
River Magog, which boasts of seven water power
developments along its 18-mile length. Bathing,
boating, excellent hotels, two golf courses and the
annual Sherbrooke Exhibition yearly attract thousands
of visitors to this interesting city.
Lake Massawippi. From Sherbrooke, the Quebec
Central Railway runs south to Newport and very
soon after leaving Sherbrooke reaches Lake Massawippi, the loveliest lake imaginable, with North
Hatley and the summer colonies of Woodland Bay
and Ayer's Cliff on its shores. Beautiful estates
charmingly kept add to the beauty of the lake,
and North Hatley boasts of two fine golf courses.
In the vicinity are maple sugar bushes for delightful
walks and rides, and the lake abounds in maskinonge,
pike and black bass.
East from Sherbrooke the train passes Lennoxville,
with Bishop's College just a mile over the hill, and
Megantic, a typical frontier town on a beautiful lake
of the same name. From Megantic an interesting
lake trip may be taken to Piopolis, Woborn and Three
Lakes. At Three Lakes is Spider Lake and the Megantic Fish and Game Club. This entire section
abounds in fish and game, and has a well deserved
reputation among sportsmen.
Vermont. The Canadian Pacific line between
Newport and Wells River provides a delightful entry
point to resorts in Vermont. Lyndonville in the
valley of the Passumpsic, within sight of Burke
Mountain, and beautiful Willoughby Lake, flanked
by towering Hor and Pisgah, are two attractions
which together with golfing and other amusements
lure many visitors to this section in summer.

Saint John. Saint John, grey and ancient, is the
oldest incorporated town in British North America,
and is also the largest city in New Brunswick. It is
extremely proud of its great harbour, and its dry-
dock, one of the largest in the world.
Saint John had the world's first steam fog whistle.
It was erected on Partridge Island, called by Champlain "The Isle of Pheasants"—one of the numerous
suburban residences of Glooscap, the mythical
Micmac hero.
Half the charm of Saint John is lost on the visitor
who does not understand its romantic, historical background. The story of Madame de la Tour, the events
prior to the construction of old Fort Howe, whose
ruins moulder on an eminence in the city—these and
other reminiscences are necessary for an appreciation
of this briny old city of the sea.
Saint John's attractions are many. Among these
are its half-dozen open spaces called squares, not
parks, and provided for when Paul Bedell laid out
the city in 1784. King Square, close to the old
Loyalist Burying Ground, is one of the loveliest of
these. Close to it is the Admiral Beatty, newest and
finest of Saint John's several hotels.
Harbour front, Saint John
Saint John's Attractions. Saint John boasts of
many historic and scenic attractions. There is the
Waverley, where the Governor was wont to stay;
the Royal Hotel, the Mallard of other days where the
first election was held in 1785, the first Parliament sat
in 1786, and the first dramatic performance in Saint
John was staged; Trinity Church with its melodious
chimes and the coat of arms taken from Boston's
Council Chamber; the Reversing Falls outside the
city, one of Nature's most freakish manifestations;
Rockwood Park, 512 acres in area; Cobbett's Well,
the Martello Tower, the Natural History Museum;
and the splendid golf course and, last but not least, the
shipping in the harbour.

Lord Nelson Hotel, Halifax
Fredericton. The most impressive trip from
Saint John is that up the Saint John River to lovely
tree-embowered Fredericton, capital of New Brunswick. Formerly known as St. Ann's Point, there
was much heated controversy when Governor Carleton chose it as the capital, for members of the Parliament had to drive to it over the frozen river for the
sessions. In 1792 the House voted £100 for a Provincial Seminary, now the University of New Brunswick.
Fredericton is a popular jumping-off place for
hunting and fishing expeditions. In autumn a
favourite excursion is the trip up the Saint John River
to Grand Falls, a panoramic spectacle of scenic
Ha I i rax. Overlooking one of the best harbours in
the world, Halifax is one of the most interesting of
North American cities, with its ancient and modern
buildings, its associations with the stirring past and
its modern seaport activities. The Citadel, the only
one of Halifax's many forts open to visitors, rises
271 feet above the city and overlooks the harbour
and the old Clock Tower built about 1794 when the
Duke of Kent, Queen Victoria's father, commanded
the garrison here. Halifax is a favourite centre for
lovers of aquatic sports, that fine sheet of water—
the North-West Arm—being the rendezvous for
yachtsmen, oarsmen and swimmers. Both banks of
the Arm are lined with club houses and fine estates.
From "The Tower" in the Dingle, composed of stone
from the four corners of the British Empire and erected
to mark the birth of responsible government in Canada,
a fine view of the Arm may be obtained and, in the
distance, of Bedford Basin.
Facing the Public Gardens is the Lord Nelson Hotel,
a hostelry that is modern and yet expresses perfectly
the maritime atmosphere of this great port. Massive,
fireproof, it combines the traditions of the spacious
days of the past with modern conveniences.

a building whose beauty will be appreciated
by even the most insensitive. A fireproof

it by the creeping vines and flowers.
Algonquin Hotel. Nearly every one
of the Algonquin's 250 rooms commands
glorious views of Passamaquoddy Bay.
Mowers in profusion are everywhere, both
inside and out; the lounge, music, card and
dining rooms flaunting great masses of
bloom day in and day out.
Every afternoon and three evenings each
week musicales are given in the Casino.   On
alternate evenings a 9-piece orchestra plays
lor   dancing.    On   other   nights,   moving
pictures are shown.    Tennis courts, bowling greens and putting greens are here, in
perfect condition.    In Katie's Cove there
is safe sea-bathing.    And as for golf, there
are two courses, one 18 holes and one 9
both   numbered   among   the   outstanding
courses of Canada.    Par going out on the
longer course is 36, and everything must

is the tang of the exhilarating salt sea-air.

at the Algonquin there is enough enjoyment for everybody. Rugged
Shore Line
Nova Scotia. In 1524, Verrazano, describing his voyage along the coast of
America, spoke of a shore "which we baptized Arcadia on account of the beauty of
the trees." This shore was south of what
was later called Acadia, but the name became transferred to what is now Canada's
peerless Nova Scotia.
History goes far back in this delightful
land. French colonization dates from 1605!
In 1622 James I granted it to Sir William
Alexander, who thought there should be a
New Scotland as well as a New England
and latinized the name to Nova Scotia.
Connecting with a through train service
from Montreal, the Saint John-Digby
steamer provides the most delightful access
to Nova Scotia. The train reaches Saint
John in the morning, and breakfast is
served aboard the "Princess Helene" immediately after sailing. This Canadian
Pacific steamer, built especially for this
service, is of 4,000 tons gross register, has
44 staterooms for night occupancy and
carries 500 passengers. There is accommodation, too, for 59 automobiles. The
journey across the Bay is made in roughly
3 hours and provides a pleasing interlude
in the rail journey.
Now you sail out into the Bay of Fundy,
celebrated for its tides. On the right rises
Partridge Island, the quarantine station.
Far ahead Fundy gleams, where mountain
ranges seek to clasp each other across the
water and fail by half a mile. Their trap-
pean cliffs form "Tee-wee-den," the "Little
Hole" of the Micmacs, now known as
Digby Gap and locally as "Digby Gut,"
through which Fundy's roaring tides pour
for forty miles. Point Prim Light sentinels the bare brown rocks on the right,
but you scarcely notice it.
Old Digby. Your eyes are held by the
white gleam of the New Pines Hotel and
the expanse of red mud where the shore
should be. The tide is out, and you slip
in below the level of the dock and climb to
the wharf above. A boy is bound to accost
you, "Cherries, mister, lady?" Forgotten
is your luggage. These great velvety balls
drive all else from your mind. You buy a
box, everyone does, and cram cherries into
your mouth while being found by the New
Pines porter.

Dominion Atlantic Railway. Travel on the
crack "Blue Nose" or "New Yorker" of the Dominion
Atlantic Railway is one of the most interesting parts
of a trip to Nova Scotia. Everything reminds you of
Evangeline; the menu, ginger ale, the wrappers of the
soap. Also, you are reminded of the pioneers who
established this land; de Monts, Poutrincourt,
Champlain and a dozen more; for the locomotives each
bear one of their names. Dominion Atlantic trains
connect with steamship arrivals from Boston and
New York at Yarmouth and with the Canadian Pacific
steamship at Digby.
The New Pines Hotel. Indisputably,
the New Pines Hote4 at Digby is Nova
Scotia's premier summer resort. The hotel,
with its surrounding log cabins, occupies
the centre of a tract of resinous pine and
hardwood trees, a few minutes' drive from
the wharf and overlooking the fifty square
miles of Digby Basin. High above its
roof rises Beeman's Mount, a climb over
which will satisfy the most ardent Alpinist.
The New Pines is owned and operated
by the Canadian Pacific, and has been designed to meet the requirements of a most
discriminating clientele. It is a modern
hotel with every convenience in the main
building, the bungalow accommodation,
and in the facilities provided for recreation.
Rooms are all outside, many of them en
suite with private bath. Accommodation
in the cabins is eagerly sought. They
have from one to three bedrooms, living
room with fireplace, bath, electric light
and spacious verandah.
The swimming pool, with salt water
pumped in fresh every day, tennis courts,
bowling alleys and billiard room are part
of the amusement programme. An excellent 9-hole golf course lies within walking distance of the hotel, and in addition
there is the superb new 18-hole golf course
operated in connection with the New Pines.
There is also a dancing pavilion where the
New Pines orchestra plays four nights a
week. On Sunday evenings, the public
is invited to community singing.
Motor-bus and motor-boat trips are
made daily to points within a radius of 35
miles. Those to Bear River, Smith's
Cove and Annapolis Royal are especially
popular. Point Prim offers another delightful objective by sail, your little boat riding
like a tiny cockleshell in the broad, calm
waters of the Basin.
Two Interesting Points. Culloden Cove
and Point Prim will repay a visit. The
former, with the Bay of Fundy house peeping
out, is an ideal picnic ground. The later, with
its Light, is a picturesque haven amidst rocky desolation, known not only to mariners but also to astronomers from the fact that a former keeper, William
Ellis, discovered the comet that bears his name.
Smith's Cove. A few minutes of travel on the
Dominion Atlantic Railway takes you to Imbertville,
the station for the delightful log-cabin colony at
Smith's Cove. Here there is a wonderful bathing
beach, whereon Indian relics may still be found.
This is the largest individual colony in the Province, and
provides amazing comfort at small expense. pypp;y:m   ■
Bear River. Half of fascinating Bear River lies in
Annapolis County and half in Digby County. An
interesting landmark is the old hotel, with its walls
entirely covered by oil paintings said to be the work of
a remittance man whose alcoholic tendencies left him
always in the landlord's debt. A gay annual cherry
carnival at Bear River is held in the middle of July.
Kentville. At the interesting town of Kentville
you will be received with delightful hospitality and
wrapped around with exceeding comfort (and very
little expense!) at the new, modern, fireproof Cornwallis Inn, a Canadian Pacific hotel. Built in Tudor-
esque style, this hostelry has every convenience for
the summer visitor and business traveller. One
hundred bedrooms, ten sample rooms, a spacious
dining room, with a terrace overlooking the gardens,
fine public lounges, a billiard and card room are at
the visitor's disposal.
At Kentville, too, are the head offices of the Dominion Atlantic Railway and an Experimental Farm.
Not far from the town a row of ancient stables tells of
romantic coaching days, when Kentville was one of
the busiest relay points between Halifax and Yarmouth.
The Ken-Wo Golf Links is a smart 9-hole course whose
support is shared by the inhabitants of Kentville and
Wolfville; and Grand Pre, the Gaspereaux Valley,
Canning, Kingsport, Scot's Bay, Blomidon and other
points of interest are within easy motoring distance.
A delightful walk takes you to the top of Cape
Split, dividing the Bay of Fundy from Minas Basin.
Wolfville. The trip to Grand Pre and Evangeline's Memorial Park is made most conveniently from
Wolfville, a lovely leafy town where the dome of
Acadia University gleams alabaster white between
the trees. The first apple orchard in King's County
was planted here, and is still bearing fruit. The
planter, who was also the first apple shipper, lived to
see the results of his labours. Wolfville is a village of
crisp, cool lawns, warmed by flowers, and is hemmed
in for miles by reclaimed lands upon which amazing
crops are grown, and towards those barriers of dykes
the tides creep with jealous and progressive stealth.
Sentinels patrol the dykes in spring, signalling with
fires that look like glowing sparks against the
immensity of the dark.
The Gaspereau Valley. Out in the meadows
curious little wooden tables dot the landscape. On
these marsh hay is piled to dry, for it cannot be left
on the ground because the tide would sweep it away.
Much of it must be cut at night by "moon mowers."
You must also see the Gaspereau Valley, approached
through Deep Hollow Drive, and you should fish the
Gaspereau River, in whose brackish pools great
salmon lurk. And by all means walk to the stile at
evening and try to count the orchards and farms that
crisscross the sun-drenched hills.
Drive, too, to Cape Blomidon, "Blow-me-down"
originally, pushing its purple bulk far out to sea, and
snaring on its purple head all the winds and clouds
that blow by. To do so, you must pass the Look-
off, hanging like Mahomet's coffin betwixt earth
and sky. A good deal of the Nova Scotian world
lies below, four counties in all, including Minas
Basin, Evangeline's Beach, beautiful Cornwallis
Valley and three thousand acres of meadowland, an
eternal monument to the patience and industry of
the Acadians.
The Pines, Nova Scotia's premier summer resort
19 Land of
Grand Pre. Grand Pre—"The Great Meadow"—
was the birthplace of Canada's wartime premier, Sir
Robert Borden, and in the graveyard of the old
Covenanter Church many distinguished members of
his family lie in their long sleep. Proceeding down
the hillside and under a Norman arch, you pass into
Evangeline's Memorial Park, into Acadia! Yes, and
into Normandy itself! Voices are hushed as the
guide recounts the story of Evangeline, the beloved
Acadian heroine who, expelled from her country, and
separated from her sweetheart, found him after years
of searching only to surrender him to Death.
The ancient Acadian village, which Colonel Winslow
and his New Englanders depopulated so effectively in
that autumn of 1755, is supposed to have extended in
a long thin line from about where the Grand Pre
station now stands to somewhere near the station of
Horton Landing. Immediately opposite the Park
entrance stands a cross constructed from the foundation stone of the original church and marking the
graveyard. A few paces beyond is "Evangeline's
Well." Nothing remains of the priest's garden except
a row of whispering willows, trees which throughout
all this country stand as a monument to the French
who planted them.
The Memorial Chapel (St. Charles) is a stone
replica of the old frame building, and was built by the
voluntary subscriptions of Acadians scattered all over
the continent.    It contains interesting Acadian relics.
Hebert's remarkable bronze idealization of Evangeline stands a few feet from the Chapel and deserves
more   than   passing   mention.    Begun   by   Philippe
Evangeline's Well
Hebert, R.C.A., finished by his son Henri, the lifeless
metal gives an impression of breathing beauty.
Parrsboro. Parrsboro lies at the end of a two-
hour delight (which ordinary people call a sail) across
the Minas Basin. Out in the blue, landlocked Basin
you really see Blomidon. You can almost see the
violet quartz or amethyst, still found despite the
inroads made upon its masses, on the beach. Glooscap,
the wonder-working MicMac hero, lived on Blomidon,
and much annoyed at his enemy, Great Beaver, used
to hurl great chunks of stone at him. The Five
Islands are there as a result. Farther out to sea
Cape Split rises, and near at hand clusters of summer
cottages and swarms of children announce your
arrival at Parrsboro.
If strange sights interest you, drive past Ottawa
House to East Bay whose barren shore is shadowed by
immense cliffs, in the clearly defined strata of which the
romance of the earth is written. High above the tide
footprints in stone testify to the ancient presence of
great, strange beasts. This place is for geologists a
veritable paradise.
The Fort, Annapolis Royal •sawftBc*-
Cornwallis Inn, Kentville
Annapolis Royal. Lovers of history will enjoy
Annapolis Royal, the first permanent settlement, after
St. Augustine, Florida, in North America. At Port
Royal, afterwards Annapolis, de Monts and his associates, including Champlain, established their colony
in 1605. From that date until 1710, when it passed
into the hands of the English, its story is an endless
succession of captures and recaptures, and even for
forty years after 1710 it was in an almost continual
state of siege.
Here, Canada's first grist-mill was built, the first
harvest of cereals and roots reaped, the first ships
constructed, the first convert made, the first dramatic
performance staged.
The present Fort Anne is the third built on the
site. It is a wonderland of historic treasures, and
contains a replica of an Acadian room. Surrounding
the fort are 27 acres of ground, forming one of Canada's National Parks.
Other points of interest in and around Annapolis
are the Memorial Town Hall, the old Cemetery, the
Whipping Tree, Devil's Rock, Wishing Rock, Goat
Island, St. Luke's Anglican Church, St. Thomas'
Roman Catholic Church and Hillsdale House.
Yarmouth and the New Lakeside Inn. At Nova
Scotia's southwest corner and only 240 miles from
Boston is busy little Yarmouth with her wharves
humming with activity and her gardens behind their
eighteen-foot hedges blazing with colour. Norse explorers, so the Runic Stone in Yarmouth's Library says,
visited Yarmouth centuries before Columbus lived.
Serving this important port of call of the Eastern
Steamship Company is the new Lakeside Inn, a
Canadian Pacific Hotel. It is commandingly situated
about a mile from Yarmouth on the Digby highway.
The inn is designed in bungalow style, and has
spacious public rooms, including a Spanish sun room.
Visitors will find the Lakeside Inn a convenient centre
for golf, tennis, motoring, fresh water bathing, boating
and fishing.
The French Shore. Get off the train at Little
Brook, and ride to the edge of St. Mary's Bay. Following the shore is an unbroken succession of French
villages, inhabited by descendants of the exiled
Acadians. Comeauville is perhaps the most interesting of these villages, and it has a hotel that has been
owned by the same family for 135 years.
At Comeauville the sun goes down in a flaming mass
of splendour behind Digby Neck and leaves the sky
and bay an impossible magenta, and many are the
visitors who come just to see this, and the ancient
fishermen mending their nets and the procession to
Mass on August 15, Acadian Day.
Weymouth has a splendid boys' camp, a summer
resort farm, a theatre that a city might envy, and a
memorial to James Moody, who escaped from
Washington's army and settled here.
Windsor. Forty seven miles west of Halifax lies
Windsor, one of the terminals of the first railway in
Nova Scotia and the former site of King's College, the
oldest colonial university in the British Empire, now
removed to Halifax. Windsor was the home of Sam
Slick—Judge Haliburton—one of America's earliest
humorous writers.
An interesting landmark is Fort Edward, where
plans were made for the Acadian expulsion, and
Windsor is also close to the vicinity where the Fundy
tide performs its most spectacular feats.
Lakeside Inn, Yarmouth
-—^■^s&m.m -P^t§pip Along the Kedgemakoogee River
Fishing in New Brunswick. Wherever you go you
will find at least one sportsman ready to testify to the
superlative fishing that New Brunswick affords. Its
fame, especially for salmon-fishing, has gone broadcast across the world, and it is almost as well known
for its trout, bass and landlocked salmon. A great
many forest-hidden streams are literally overrun with
speckled beauties, some of which have scaled as high
as five pounds. Ouananiche (landlocked salmon) and
black bass offer capital sport in many of the smaller
lakes. An inquiry as to the most favourable waters,
addressed to the General Tourist Agent, Canadian
Pacific Railway, Montreal, will be answered promptly.
The salt water fisherman is also catered to in New
Brunswick with pollock fishing.
A four and a half mile stretch of the Restigouche
River is reserved for public use by the Government of
New Brunswick. This is one of the most famous
salmon streams on the continent.
Hunting in New Brunswick. It seems incredible
that such splendid big game areas as exist in New
Brunswick could survive in such close proximity to
the large centres of population. Moose in New
Brunswick are no Indian legend. Neither are deer.
Neither are its game birds. Back from the coastline
of New Brunswick are the great silent forests that
hide the headwaters of the famous salmon streams.
Here, where these rivers interlace in intricate fashion,
are the great hunting areas. Moose and deer abound,
and an occasional trapper and fire ranger are the only
humans to be encountered in these great stretches of
unbroken forests where brule, swamp, lake and stream
provide ideal surroundings for wild life, and where
game continues prolific.
The Canadian Pacific Railway line crosses many of
the more desirable streams at or near their headwaters, and hunters find it convenient to drift down
these streams by canoe, stopping to hunt as they go.
The General Tourist Agent, Canadian Pacific Railway,
Montreal, will supply any information desired as to
seasons, best stopping-off points, guides, hunting
conditions, etc. Fishins in Nova Scotia     v u

Old Fashioned Life
Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are
the strongholds of ancient races, and within their picturesque confines you will find yourself constantly enchanted by glimpses of old-fashioned life, old-fashioned
customs, old-fashioned handicraft, old-fashioned structures—legacies that have come down the long years.
In these lovely provinces, simple kindly folk live
simple kindly lives, much in the manner of their forefathers. French some of these people are; others are
Scotch; still others Irish and English; but one and all
hold precious the things of the past.
Throughout the Laurentians, around Quebec City,
on the He d'Orleans, around the Bay of Minas and
the French Shore in Nova Scotia you will find wayside
shrines and crosses, still objects of sincere devotion.
Venture off the main roads in certain parts of Quebec
and you will come across steep-roofed little Norman
farm-houses. You will see open-air ovens of brick and
stone, still in daily use, and the flapping sails of windmills still raising water from wells dug centuries ago.
In these provinces you can still hear the whir of
spinning wheels and the rattle of hand looms, as flax
and wool are spun and woven into blankets and rugs
and garments, "homespuns" unsurpassed for beauty
and utility. Embroideries, too, and comforters, are
produced in these tiny farmhouses, the like of which is
hard to find any place else.
In Evangeline Land, near Quebec City or in New
Brunswick, some sunny morning you may find yourself called upon to halt your motor car to allow a
stolid pair of oxen to go trudging by on a shaded road.
Or, stopping at a farmhouse for milk fresh from the
source of supply, you may by your graciousness earn
an invitation to step within the scrupulously clean
kitchen and listen to tunes of two and three cen-
turies ago played by the ancient grandfather on an
equally ancient "fiddle." Or you may be given
glimpses of furniture, of pottery, of glassware, that a
museum would envy.
Along the sea-coasts, fishermen mend their nets in
the manner of their forefathers. In the backwoods,
guides find their way through the mazes of wilderness
with a cunning skill inherited from the Indians and
voyageurs and coureurs-des-bois of old. Recipes,
centuries old, titillate your palate. You sleep on beds
of balsam in the manner of LaSalle and Jolliet. The
birch-bark canoes are built to the ancient patterns
