2. Summer Tourist Fares to Pacific Coast and other Western Destinations.—Particulars of
tariff publications are given in the preceding Section.
Note that this year summer tourist tickets to Pacific Coast destinations, also to Banff, Lake Louise,
Field, Glacier, etc., and to Yellowstone Park, Glacier (U.S.) National Park and various other U.S. destinations as specified in tariffs require validation before they can be used on return trip, but no validation fee
will be charged. As heretofore, Pacific Coast tickets may be validated at a number of intermediate points
(specified in tariffs) if passengers desire to return east from such intermediate points instead of completing
their journey. A new contract form, Contract 46, has been supplied for use instead of Contract 45; agents
having Contract 45 in stock will return same to Auditor of Passenger Receipts at once for cancellation.
Validation is not required of summer tourist tickets to Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Ogden,
Salt Lake, Santa Fe., N.M., Mancos, Colo., or the Mesa Verde (U.S.) National Park,
All tickets to Western destinations sold at summer tourist fares should have letters "S.T." stamped
or written with ink on face of contract and each coupon.
Agents' special attention is called to the following regulations in the sale of summer tourist round-trip
tickets:—•
Vancouver must be destination of round-trip tickets routed on going journey via Canadian Pacific
Ry. or Canadian National Rys. to Vancouver and returning via U. S. routes through Seattle or vice versa,
when the tickets do not read through Victoria or Portland.
Victoria must be destination of round-trip tickets routed on going journey via Canadian Pacific Ry.
or Canadian National Rys. to Vancouver and returning via steamer and U.S. routes through Seattle or vice
versa when the tickets do not read through Portland.
Portland must be destination of round-trip tickets reading through Portland, when they do not also
read through California.
3. Homeseekers' Second Class Round-Trip Tickets from Eastern Canada to Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia Destinations.—Fares are given in Tariff *119-2 and
Special Supplement A (the latter supplied, with a few exceptions, only to agents at points off Canadian
Pacific Ry line).    Tickets on sale daily to September 30 inclusive.
Western Lines agents have instructions re validation, extension and variation in route of these tickets,
also as to stop-over privileges, in Special Circular f 1399.
4. Emergency Fare Quotations.—When agents obtain'from head office quotations of fares to
destinations, or by routes, not covered by regular tariffs (commonly spoken of as "emergency fares") same
are to be understood as for immediate use and are not to be held for use at some indefinite future time.
5. Ticketing to St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minn.—Agents are reminded that the fares to Sf
Paul and Minneapolis are not the same from all stations. In some cases Minneapolis takes a lower and in
some cases a higher fare than St. Paul.—in other cases, both cities take same fare. Eastern Lines agents
will note particularly the showing of fares to St. Paul and Minneapolis on pages 5, 7, 9 and 1*1 of Special
Supplement 4 to Joint Tariff AA7.
Tickets form 70-20 and 70-20E, which formerly read via Sault Ste. Marie to "St. Paul or Minneapolis,"
have been revised to read "St, Paul" only, and new forms 70-96 and 70-96E read to "Minneapolis" only.
6. Ticketing Passengers for Escanaba, Mich., via Sault Ste. Marie.—Soo Line Train 7, the
connection of Canadian Pacific Train 17, has no connection for Escanaba and passengers for that point should
be ticketed only to Gladstone, Mich., unless they are willing to wait over at Sault Ste. Marie until the following
day and take Soo Line local train 87, which leaves Sault Ste. Marie 1.1.0 p.m. and runs through to Escanaba
daily except Sunday, arriving Escanaba 7.00 p.m.
7* Ticketing for New Canadian Pacific Trains "The Trans-Canada Limited".—Special attention is directed to Supplement 9 to Private Instructions to Ticket Agents No. 2 and Supplement 7 to Passenger Department Instructions re Sleeping and Parlor Cars No. 4, effective June 1.

First class tickets (with certain exceptions specified in Supplement 9 to Private Instructions to
Ticket Agents No. 2) will be honored on the Trans-Canada Limited only when accompanied by tickets
for sleeping car berths, sections, drawing-rooms or compartments, or when passengers have reservations for
same to be paid for on train (except that between Montreal and Ottawa in parlor cars running specially between those points first-class tickets will be honored when accompanied by parlor car seat tickets). Second
class tickets will not be honored on these trains.    See Section 8 of this Bulletin.
MATTERS ESPECIALLY RELATING  TO CANADIAN PACIFIC
8. Canadian Pacific Train Service.—General change of time to Summer Schedule took
effect Sunday June 1.
"Trans-CanadaLimited" trains 7 and 8 between Montreal and Vancouver, 9 and 10 between Toronto
and Sudbury.
The putting on of the new fast "all-sleeping car" transcontinental trains is the most important feature
of the summer time table and marks a new epoch in Canadian railway history. The double daily transcontinental trains already in service carry heavy mail, express, day coach and tourist sleeping car traffic and
require to stop at all important stations. The new trains will carry standard sleeping car passengers only
and, except for the necessary change of engines at divisional points, will stop only at the larger commercial
centres and tourist resorts and will thus expedite the movement of through passengers and relieve the other
trains without interfering, in any way, with the service provided for other traffic.
The number of cars handled on the "Trans-Canada Limited" is limited to
8 cars east of Fort William and west of Banff (exclusive of open top observation cars).
10 cars Fort William and Winnipeg.
9 cars Winnipeg and Banff.
The running time of the new trains (allowing for difference in time) is scheduled at 93 hours 30 minutes,
Montreal to Vancouver and 92 hours 15 minutes Vancouver to Montreal.
Equipment consists of:
Standard Sleepers Compartment car (1 drawing room, 7 compts.)  To
Montreal-Vancouver          *                                 d ronto-Winnipeg.

Toronto-Vancouver. compts.) Montreal-Vancouver;
Toronto-Winnipeg.     , Dining Cars
Fort William-Winnipeg. Montreal-Vancouver.
Winnipeg-Vancouver. Toronto-Sudbury.
Only a limited quantity of personal baggage will be carried; other than personal baggage requires to
be forwarded by other trains.
Berths for one night trip will not be sold or reserved on the "Trans-Canada Limited," between following
points, because there is ample and convenient sleeping car service on other trains and because the occupancy
of such space on short distance runs would exclude longer distance passengers.
Montreal or Ottawa to North Bay or Sudbury.
Toronto to Sudbury.
Vancouver to Glacier or intermediate points. ^
Field-Lake Louise-Banff or Calgary to Medicine Hat or Swift Current.
Berth or seat space for day trips will not be sold or reserved on the "Trans-Canada Limited" between
following points, because any considerable number of day-trip passengers could not be carried without
inconveniencing through sleeping car passengers and there are other convenient trains between those points
for the accommodation of day passengers :-
Kenora and Winnipeg. Calgary and Sicamous and intermediate '—*>
Winnipeg and Brandon. points.
Regina and Moose Jaw.
fUg^By the putting on of the ''Trans-Canada Limited" the Canadian Pacific establishes
three daily transcontinental express trains besides having a fourth daily express, the "Soo Pacific"
between Moose Jaw and Vancouver.
Other features of Transcontinental train Service-Trains 1 and 2, now known as "The Imperial" (instead
of "Imperial Limited") continue to run daily between Montreal and Vancouver with very little change from
former schedules, but will no longer carry compartment observation cars and will have parlor cars between
Banff and Revelstoke.
Trains 3 and 4, now known as "Vancouver Express" and "Toronto Express" respectively, run daily
between Toronto and Vancouver. No. 3 leaves Toronto 10 p.m. (instead of 7 p.m. as heretofore) and arrives
Vancouver later than formerly. No. 4 runs on practically former schedule. These trains will carry compartment observation cars between Winnipeg and Vancouver, but not between Toronto and Winnipeg/
Open top observation cars, as shown in cut, will be run as follows:

view of the Yoho Valley, and trainmen are instructed to draw passengers' particular attention thereto.
Daylight passenger trains will stop also for five minutes at Albert Canyon during the summer tourist
season giving passengers an opportunity to alight there for a brief inspection of the wonderful gorge.
Customs Officers -In order that tourists from and to the United States may not be inconvenienced by
an examination of their baggage at the International boundary, Canadian Customs Inspectors will be

and their services can be engaged through the hotel managers at
10. Canadian Pacific Hotels-^-Glacier House, situated in the heart of theSelkirks,is an..exceedingly
attractive place in which to enjoy Alpine scenery arid surroundings under comfortable conditions.       > •    d
Up to 1916, Canadian Pacific main line traiits passed directly in front of the hotel, on their way 'over
the "Loops of the Selkirks" and through the Rogejrs Pass—now, the Ibng climb over the Loops is avoided
by using the double track Connaught Tunnel, the longest in America, which pierces Mount Macdonald and,
though five miles long, is so straight that the exits are never out of sight. From Glacier Station^ atthe
Tunnel's western portal, it is. an easy carriage
drive of about one mile to the hotel, which stands
at the foot of the great Illecillewaet Glacier and
in full view of Mount ©Sir Donald (10,808 feet)
and many other giants of the Selkirk group.
As a centre for exploring and mountain-
climbing, Glacier House is unexcelled, and the
geologist finds enough to interest him for a lifetime in the immediate neighborhood. The Illecillewaet Glacier may be said to occupy the backyard of the hotel and the Asulkan Glacier is within easy distance, while the Nakimu Caves, discovered only a few years ago and larger than the
Mammoth Cave of Kentucky, though as yet
only partly explored, are but seven miles distant
by carriage road and bridle path.
Among the shorter and easier ascents to be
made from Glacier House are Glacier Crest
(7,419 feet), Miribn Lake (5,666 feet), and Observation Point (5,750 feet); from the first-named
there is a splendid view of the Illecillewaet Glacier with its crevasses, seracs and moraines, and
from Observation Point, a grand panorama of
Rogers Pass is unfolded to the eye. The climb to
the summit of Mount Abbott (8,081 feet) is an
all-day undertaking, but not a difficult one, and
Mount Sir Donald himself can be conquered
readily enough with the assistance of the Swiss guides, whose services may be secured through the hotel
management at a charge of $6.00 per day each. -
Glacier House will be open this year from July 1 to August 31. As it is owned and operated by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, guests may be assured of city comforts and conveniences and a table maintained
at the Company'^ usual high standard. It contains 76 rooms and is run on the American plan, per diem rates
being $5.00 without bath; $6.00 with bath, and upwards.
The Empress Hotel, Victoria, should be recommended as a stop-over point for all tourists to Alaska
and other Pacific Coast points. Its appointments and service are unsurpassed, and it is the headquarters
par excellence for those wishing to enjoy the delightful climate and scenic and other attractions of Victoria
and Vancouver Island. V
The Algonquin Hotel, St: Andrews-by-the-Sea, N.B., opens June 20 and is operated on American plan,
per diem rates being $7.00 without bath; $8.00 with bath, and upwards. Through sleeping car service is
operated between Montreal and'St, Andrews while the hotel is open. For particulars see Section 8 of this
Bulletin.   >
Banff Springs Hotel and Chateau Lake Louise are now open for the season.

14, How to see the Canadian Pacific Rockies and Selkirks and the Thompson and Fraser
Canyons in daytime. (Under 1919 summer train schedules). From the Canadian Pacific car windows
one has before him for the whole 642 miles between Vancouver and Calgary a continuous panorama of such
magnincient scenery as can be seen nowhere else on this continent and probably nowhere else in the world.
*Eastern Lines. §Western Lines. fWestern Lines, Field, Kootenay Landing. JWestern Lines, West of Field and Kootenay
Landing.
7 (Over) How to see the CP. Rockies and Selkirks etc.—Continued.
In addition to what can be seen from the train and without moving from his seat, the traveller may view yet
more marvellous things by making short side trips from the line of railway.
This year the new fast "All Sleeping Car," Trans-Canada Limited trains 7 and 8, afford additional
facilities over those enjoyed in previous years, their schedule being so arranged as to make a daylight run in
both directions over almost the entire distance between Calgary and Sicamous.
Note, that the "Trans-Canada Limited" trains are intended for use only by sleeping car passengers,
and, while thro ughpassengers holding sleeping car accommodation will be carried from points east of Calgary
to Sicamous or intermediate points, or from points west of Sicamous to Calgary or intermediate points east
of Glacier, those trains cannot be used by passengers who desire to make the trip on the Trans-Canada
Limited only between Calgary and Sicamous, or between points intermediate to Calgary and Sicamous.
How all that is to be seen and may be seen is put in convenient form for passengers* guidance by the
following plans, based upon the 1919 summer schedules:
Plan 1 -For those having ample time at their disposal :-Travel between Calgary and Vancouver by daylight
trains using one of the schedules shown under Plan 2 below and, in addition, stop over at Banff, Lake Louise,
Glacier and Sicamous (also at Field in order to make side trip to Emerald Lake and the Yoho Valley), for,
while you can see much from the train, there are many attractive spots and features of interest that cannot
be viewed in that way such as Bow Falls, the Cave and Basin, Hot Sulphur Springs, the Animal Paddocks,
Sun Dance Canyon, Johnson Canyon, the Hoodoos, Lake Minnewanka, the Spray Valley and Spray Lakes
in the neighborhood of Banff; Lake Louise and the Lakes in the Clouds (Mirror and Agnes), Victoria and
Lefroy Glaciers, Paradise Valley and Giant Steps, Sentinel Pass, Moraine Lake and Valley of the Ten Peaks,
Consolation Lake and the Ptarmigan Valley (reached from Lake Louise Station)-Lakes O'Hara and Mc-
Arthur (reached either from Hector or Lake Louise)-The Fossil Beds, Natural Bridge, Emerald Lake, the
Yoho Valley, Takakkaw and Twin Falls and Wapta Glacier (reached from Field)-the Columbia Valley and
Lake Windermere (reached from Golden)-the Illecillewaet and Asulkan Glaciers, Marion Lake, Canyon
Creek Valley, Cougar Valley and the Nakimu Caves (reached from Glacier)-Revelstoke National Park,
Gorge of the Columbia River, Silver Tip Falls and the Arrow and Kootenay Lakes (reached from Revelstoke)
-and the Okanagan and Kettle Valley Districts (reached from Sicamous-also from Revelstoke by way of
Arrow Lakes and the Kettle Valley Ry.).
Plan 2.—For those whose time will not permit lengthy stop-overs but who can afford to spend one or
two nights on the road so as to see all the scenic wonders along the track, in daylight.

Plan 3 -Those who are pressed for
time and cannot afford any stop-overs
should decide whether they wish more
particularly to see the Rockies and Selkirks or the Thompson and Fraser
Canons-bearing in mind that the
scenery in the Rockies and the Selkirks is generally considered grander
and more impressive than that in the
Canons and, in order to see it, as
much as possible of the route between
Calgary and Sicamous should be traversed in daylight.    The following itineraries are suggested:

seven hours run from Toronto to
Point au Baril Station (180 miles
north of Toronto), whence Watts

cottages. The region is noted for
its scenic features and for its fishing;
the altitude and atmospheric conditions are such as to render a stay
there extremely beneficial to sufferers from hay fever.
MISCELLANEOUS
' ERRATUM for Section 38 of Bulletin 124.    The final date to which Canadian Customs Officers
will be on duty at Banff and Lake Louise should be shown as September 30.
32. United States War Tax.—Referring to Section X of Supplement 6 to Fare Advice *2736—
Supplement 5 to Fare Advice §600 (combined issue), also to Section XI of Supplement 3 to Fare Advice
*2736—Supplement 2 to Fare Advice §600 (combined issue). It is to be understood that there is no U. S.
War Tax on amount collected for storage of baggage at stations, unless such amount exceeds forty-two (42)
cents.
Ambassadors, ministers and properly accredited diplomatic representatives of any foreign government
to the United States are exempt from payment of U. S. War Tax on tickets.
33. Use of Lamps, etc. by Passengers on Railway Trains prohibited:—By order of the Canadian Railway War Board and in the public interest, the use by passengers on railway trains of wood alcohol
or oil fuel lamps, "Theroz fuel cubes," "Sterno canned heat" or other methods of heating food, is prohibited.
Food may be heated on the cars by means only of appliances provided by the railway companies.
34. Church Services at Banff:—The Anglican (or Protestant Episcopal), the Roman Catholic and
the Union Churches at Banff each hold two services every Sunday during the summer months. At other
times one service only is held each Sunday.
35. How Canada Fed the Allies:—Figures issued by the Canadian Food Controller give the best
possible idea of Canada's effort to back up the Allies with food, the total values of foodstuffs exported during
the fiscal years while the war lasted being:—
1914-15  $187,011,300
1915-16............... ....:.............. 332,455,900
1916-17  . 482,619,400
1917-18  .: ............:.. 710,619,400
At the same time, the greater production campaign inaugurated met with such loyal response that added
acreage of farm land under cultivation, improved methods of farming, the adoption of new ways of meeting
labor problems, and an enhanced appreciation of agricultural life, will have an effect on Canadian Agriculture
for years to come. The increased acreage under cultivation during 1918 as compared with 1917 was as

39. Yukon Gold Production.—A report issued by the Department of Interior shows that the
value of gold production in the Yukon from 1885 to 1915 was $150,174,966. The gold industry in the Yukon,
the report says, is now carried on mainly by dredging, which has developed a highly profitable industry, and
dredges are operating successfully not only in the beds and on the bars of rivers, but also in the frozen placer
creek claims of the Klondike district. All the dredges operating in frozen ground have steam plants for the
purpose of thawing the ground ahead of the dredge.   The value of gold produced in 1918 was $2,116,424.
40. Value of Canadian Pulp Industry.—The following interesting figures have been issued by the
Canadian Conservation Commission:—
Value of output of Canadian Pulp and Paper mills, 1918  $110,000,000
"    1917       85,000,000
Exports of pulp and paper in half-year ended September 30, 1918       40,636,919
1917       31,074,168
1916       20,040,745
Quantity Value
Exports of pulpwood during same half-year 980,652 cords     $9,327,901
Feet
Output of 3,000 timber and pulp plants in Canada 1917 4,142,711,000
Total cut of spruce 1,466,558,000
"      white pine '.     791,609,000
"      Douglas fir     706,996,000
"      hemlock  ...    332,722,000
One-fourth of the newsprint used in the United States comes from Canada and 15 per cent, of
the pulpwood used in that country is the product of Canadian forests.
41. Millions of Caribou in Northern Canada.—The Commissioner of Dominion Parks is authority for the statement that there are from 20,000,000 to 30,000,000 caribou in the northern portions of Canada
As a food, caribou meat is of first-class quality. The hide, when tanned, is equal to the best chamois. It is
only a question of time when these vast herds will constitute a valuable item in the assets of the Dominion,
the only difficulty in the way of their utilization to-day being that of transportation.
42. Merchantable Quality of Canadian 1918 Crop.—Government figures show that of the
total wheat crop of 1918, viz., 189,075,350 bushels, 93 per cent, were of merchantable quality. The proportions per cent, of other crops of 1918 estimated to be of merchantable quality, were: oats 90 per cent., barley
and rye 92, buckwheat 75, corn for husking 67, flaxseed 90, potatoes 81, turnips, etc., 86, hay and clover 89
per cent.    These are high averages.
43. Condition of Fall Wheat in Canada.—Dominion Bureau of Statistics states that, owing to
the exceptionally mild winter, the proportion of fall-sown wheat that was killed is very small, amounting
for the Dominion only to five per cent, out of the 840,000 acres estimated to have been sown last autumn.
The average condition of fall wheat, at the end of April, weighted in proportion to acreage, is for the Dominion 103 per cent., or three per cent, above the average condition at the same date for the eight years 1911-18.
The condition in Ontario and in Manitoba on April 30, 1919 was 103, in Alberta 101, and in British Columbia
100, or exactly equal to the average.
44. Routes to Northern Alberta and the Peace River District.—Referring to Section 44 of
Bulletin 124. Train now leaves Edmonton 10 a.m. (instead of 3 p.m.) Mondays and Thursdays and is due
to reach Peace River 11.30 a.m. and Spirit River 11.50 a.m. next day.
Distance Edmonton to Lac La Biche should be shown as 128 miles. Train leaves Edmonton 8.20
a.m. (not 8.30) Mondays and Fridays, arriving Lac La Biche 6.30 p.m. same day. The line Lac La Biche to
Fort McMurray is under construction and trains are operated as required by the construction department, j
It is expected a track automobile will be on the run very shortly and a bi-weekly mail service established.
45. Items of Interest from Eastern Canada.— Nova Scotia is a country of lakes and streams,
offering many ideal canoe trips. Among these are (1) what is called the "Tent Dwellers' Cruise" (described
by iUfred Bigelow in his book "Tent Dwellers"; this covers from ten days to two weeks, starting from South
Milford, N.S., and winding up at the same place or at Lake Kedgemakoogee; (2) the Jordan River Trip,
starting from Milford or Kedgemakoogee and occupying seven to twelve days; (3) the Roseway River Trip,
partly the same as No. 1 but ending up at Shelburne, N.S., covering seven to twelve days; (4) the Tusket
River Trip—another variant of No. 1, ending up at Yarmouth, via the Tusket River—requiring ten to fourteen days; (5) the Medway River Trip, to be made only in spring, starting from South Milford and occupying
seven to ten days. There are also many shorter trips to be made from South Milford or from the Rod &
Gun Club, Kedgemakoogee.
New Brunswick.—The chief kinds of fish caught in this province are herring, sardines (the name given
to young herring when canned), cod, haddock, hake, salmon, smelts, mackerel, pollock, alewives, shad,
trout, pickerel and lobsters, oysters and clams. New Brunswick ranks third among the Provinces of the
Dominion in the value of its fisheries, the total marketed value of the product for one year recently being
20
o o
o
$5,656,859. The amount of capital invested in vessels, boats, fishing gear and fixtures throughout the province was $4,487,601, and there were 21,799 persons engaged in the fisheries, of whom 1664 were employed on
vessels and carrying smacks, 14,008 on boats and 6,127 in canneries, smoke-houses, etc., on shore.
New Brunswick possesses the only sardine fishery in Canada. It is carried on in Passamaquoddy Bay
and around the islands in the Bay of Fundy. Of such importance is this fishery—and in such masses do
the fish appear—that the fishermen on that part of the coast depend largely upon it for their livelihood.
Herring are taken in enormous quantities along the gulf shore of the province in springtime but, being
somewhat poor in quality, are used chiefly for lobster bait. A rapidly increasing quantity, however, is now
being smoked for export to the West Indies. Herring of fine quality are taken during the fall especially in
the Baie des Chaleurs district and are mostly cured in pickle for home consumption. The herring fishery
has great development possibilities.
A very important New Brunswick industry is the smelt fishery. This fish, though common on all the
shores of Eastern Canada, is taken in greatest numbers on the New Brunswick gulf coast, which section
produced in the year 1916-17, 54,954 cwts., valued at $714,402, or more than two-thirds the whole Canadian
catch.
New Brunswick has by far the best salmon fishery in Eastern Canada.
Oyster cultivation in New Brunswick appears to have excellent possibilities. The Shemogue Oyster
Company Limited began in June, 1916, planting oysters on the barren bottoms of its Shemogue beds, transferring the seed from Richibucto River, and planting altogether 4,947 bushels. In 1913 the company removed 1,800, and in 1914 2,000, barrels of oysters from the Richibucto River. The Dominion Government
oyster expert stated not long ago that there are probably over 50,000 barrels of oysters in the Richibucto
River and that no material loss would result from the annual removal of 3,000 to 4,000 barrels—in fact, the
quality of those remaining would be improved. The Canadian oyster is superior to any other and retains
its excellent flavor even after much transportation. (Condensed from The Province of New Brunswick,
issued by the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, Ont.)
The New Brunswick Government intends to spend about $700,000 this year on the construction of
permanent roads and bridges.
Last year, New Brunswick had 98 school gardens, varying in size, according to the number of pupils
and other considerations, from 24,000 sq. ft. to one-quarter acre.
Quebec.—Value of Quebec cereal crop for 1918 is set at $271,750,900. Of this, the largest individual
item was produced by oats, which were valued at $52,667,000; wheat came next with $14,382,000.
In 1917, this Province had 598 butter factories, 895 cheese factories, and 482 combined factories
(butter and cheese) making 1,975 in all, while in 1918 there were 624 butter, 902 cheese and 432 combined
factories, making 1958 of all kinds. With the establishment of skimming stations, the number of small
butter factories gradually diminishes, which permits of the large factories being better equipped and manufacturing a superior product. The number of cows supplying the butter and cheese factories in 1918 was
581,392, the butter output totalled 37,281,000 lbs., and the cheese 61,911,840 lbs., while the total value of
dairy products for the year is set at $30,680,791
The eastern portion of the Eastern Townships, especially near the Maine and Vermont boundary,
within easy distance of the Canadian Pacific main line and branches, offers attractive territory to the sportsman. It is the principal lake-land of that part of Canada which lies south of the St. Lawrence and contains
such fine bodies of water as Lakes Megantic, Memphremagog, Massawippi, Brompton, Orford and Brome,
all surrounded by country of remarkable scenic beauty and interest, and all easily accessible.
Ontario.—An experiment made at Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, in growing chicory (used as
an admixture with coffee for the purpose of giving it a peculiar flavor not possessed by the coffee alone) was
successful, producing an average yield of seven and two-third tons per acre. A sample was sent Dominion
Chicory Co., Montreal, for examination and reported on as follows: "We received the samples of chicory root
"and after examining and testing them thoroughly, we find that they are excellent in every way."
The Hurlburt Shoe Co. of Preston has been installing machinery in a branch factory which it wiU
operate at St. Marys, Ont., adjacent to the Canadian Pacific station. Another new industry is planned for
St. Marys also, known as the St. Marys Flax Co.
The Dominion Linens Ltd., referred to in Section 28 of Bulletin 119, began manufacturing linens in
Tillsonburg and Guelph, Ont., five years ago and its factories have been running every lawful day from that
time until the present. Now it is launching out and will shortly be so self-contained that it will do everything
for itself from the threshing of the flax straw to the production of the finest linens. The Tillsonburg plant
manufactures towels and crash towelling, while the Guelph factory has of late, owing to the scarcity of linen
yarns, been running largely on union and cotton goods as well as on pure linens. The yarns will now be
made in a building situated a few steps from the linen factory and will be operated by a subsidiary company
known as the Flax Spinners Limited, from which, when all the machinery has been installed, the annual output will be 900,000 lbs. of yarn. The Guelph plants occupy 27 acres of land and their products cover a full
line of household linens, also some lines of cotton goods. It is stated that a peculiar feature of the linen goods
turned out by the company is their exceptional whiteness, a matter which has attracted the attention of
21 (Over) Ontario—Continued
Belfast linen manufacturers who have visited the Guelph plant; the explanation of this is believed to be the
larger measure of sunlight which Canada enjoys as compared with Ireland, thereby assisting modern methods
of bleaching.
The agricultural representatives of the Ontario Department of Agriculture are closely identified with
the co-operative marketing movement which is becoming quite popular. As an example of what can be done
the Thunder Bav Co-operative Marketing Association did business in seed potatoes alone last year amounting
to $10,000.
The Ontario Agricultural College is giving much special attention to the beautifying of rural home
and school grounds, and gives free advice to all rural residents or organizations in the province.
CANADIAN WEST DEVELOPMENT NOTES
46.    Newspaper items have appeared as follows:— "" ;
Victoria, B.C.—WThat is undoubtedly one of the most gigantic lumber enterprises ever conceived, and
a scheme fraught with tremendous possibilities in developing British Columbia's lumber industry, is about to
be launched by a strong syndicate, said to be headed by a well-known New York financier and whose operations will be conducted on a colossal and world-wide scale. Orders have already been placed with this
syndicate by British interests to deliver 30,000,000 feet of lumber, which, in the event of a satisfactory
agreement being reached on purchase price with the sawmills and lumber manufacturers, will be supplied by
British Columbia mills, and, besides this huge contract, further orders are pending from European interests
for an unlimited quantity of lumber that will run into billions of feet and keep the mills of the province
operating day and night at full capacity.
Gold production in British Columbia in 1918 was 187,069 ozs., valued at $3,867,059, an increase of
about 40 per cent, over 1917. .
Vancouver, B.C.—The British Columbia Government's irrigation project in the Osoyoos district, on
land purchased recently from the Southern Okanagan Land Company, has been announced. Ten miles of
the main channel will be constructed this season on gravity principle, and water will be supplied from the
Okanagan River.    It is estimated 300 to 400 men will be employed on this work.
Two million feet of spruce cut in Northern British Columbia mills last year is to be shipped to Europe
via Panama Canal.   The first shipment was to be made in April.
At the University of British Columbia, under charge of the Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment, is being given a five months' course in forestry for returned Canadian soldiers so as to prepare them
for permanent forest ranger positions in British Columbia and Dominion Forest Branches.
The British Columbia Shingle Agency recently opened a school of training for white men in making
and packing shingles. Ten returned soldiers entered the "school" at its opening and were making such rapid
progress that it was expected a month would equip them for good jobs in any shingle mill of the Province.
While in training they are paid $3.00 per day as sawyers and $2.50 per day as packers. British Columbia has
300 shingle-making machines.
Kamloops,B.C.—The British Columbia Stock-breeders' Convention and the
first public Bull Sale held in the Province, whichtook place at Kamloops in
March, were very successful events.
Kamloops has a splendid array of stockyards for placing livestock on railway
cars and is a natural business centre for
stock farmers.
Salmon Arm', B.C., stands on the
southern bank of Shuswap Lake, a straggling and irregular body of water shaped
something like a huge wish-bone and lies
in the centre of southern British Columbia
and on the main line of the Canadian
Pacific Ry 316 miles east of Vancouver.
It has steamboat connections with Kamloops and other points on Shuswap Lake
and the Thompson River. It is the site of
a Government salmon and trout hatchery, has five churches, public and high
schools, two banks, three lumber mills, a sash and door factory, a soda-water and soft-drink factory, a cold
storage plant with 25 carloads capacity, a large agricultural hall and exhibition grounds covering 25 acres.
It is the centre of a very productive fruit-growing, dairying and mixed farming district. The Salmon Arm
Creamery (picture of which appears on page 15 of Bulletin 120) had an output of over 100,000 lbs. butter
last year.   The population of the town is given as 3,500.

Vernon, B.C.-—The preliminary
estimate of production for the coming season in the Okanagan is that
from 700 to 1,000 cars more of
fruit and vegetables will be sent out
than during 1918.
Nelson, B.C. — Considerable
building activity is noted. Contracts representing expenditures of
over $70,000 had been let or were
in process by April 30.
Golden, B.C., on the Columbia
River, 172 miles west of Calgary,
is known as the northern gateway
of the Columbia-Kootenay Valley
lying between the Rockies and the
Selkirks, which vary in height
from 5000 to 12,000 feet. From
Golden southward the valley maintains a width of from ten to twelve
miles and is watered by the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers and vari-
ious smaller streams. The scenery
is very rugged and picturesque and
Golden is a famous centre for tourists, and particularly popular with
those fond of mountain-climbing.
Near the town a colony of Swiss Alpine guides has been established in a model village called Edelweiss.
There is good fishing and big game hunting in the neighborhood. A wagon-road, suitable for motoring, runs
from Golden to Fort Steele. Golden has four churches, public and high schools, two banks and a fine courthouse.    There are big lumber mills in the town which employ some 500 men.    Altitude 2|583 feet.
Macleod, AIta.—Despatch dated May 14 says: "All wheat seeded. Many fields green. Soil in
excellent condition.    Oat seeding general."
,c Calgary, Alta.—A shipment of two-year-old steers from Canadian Pacific Demonstration Farm
brought top prices for this class. The animals were sold to two brokers for $15.65 and $15.75 per 100 lbs.,
or an average price of $178.15 per capita.
Hogs reached the record price of $23.00 per 100 lbs. for select animals on the local market, May 2.
There is good money in hog-raising in Western Canada, where favorable conditions enable this industry to
be conducted as economically as anywhere on the continent. Moreover, as prices at his local markets
generally compare favorably with those ruling at outside markets, the farmer in Western Canada has the
double advantage of producing at the lowest cost and selling at the highest price. '

(Over) Calgary, Alta.—Continued
Experiments conducted in Southern Alberta during the last three years by the Canadian Pacific
Department of Natural Resources prove not only that clover seed can be grown successfully, but also that
an exceedingly high grade of seed is obtainable. One of the largest plots sown during the first year was
three and a half acres planted to Alsike clover at Tilley, Alta. This area produced the following year 2,617
lbs. of an excellent quality of seed, an average of 748 lbs. or, approximately, 12^ bushels per acre, which
could have been sold readily, without recleaning, to dealers at 20c per lb. and would have given a gross
revenue.of $149.60, but such was the quality that, after a thorough recleaning, there remained slightly over
10 bushels per acre of the highest possible grade of seed that, at this spring's retail prices, would have produced a gross revenue of about $240 per acre. At the same place, another plot planted to White Dutch clover
in 1916 produced an average of 142 lbs. per acre and next year an average of 205 lbs. White clover sown on
three acres at Rosemary, Alta., produced, after thorough recleaning, 1,033 lbs. of seed, worth at least 50 cents
per lb., representing after deduction of expenses, a net profit of over $130 per acre.
Building activity here is at its briskest since 1912. Up to May 1, over $600,000 worth of permits had
been issued since the beginning of the year, all classes of buildings included. $3200 per foot was refused
for a desirable business location on May 1.
According to the Minister of Agriculture, Alberta farmers will have 9,000,000 acres in crop this year—
approximately 4,300,000 sown to wheat, or 400,000 acres more than last year, with 1,000,000 acres more
sown to oats than in 1918.   Rye is becoming a more popular crop, twice as much being sown as last year.
The reports of the United Grain Growers show farmers in every part of the province increasing their
crop acreage, many districts going 30 per cent, over last year. Conditions continue most favorable and all
reports have an optimistic tone.
Edmonton, Alta.—The forest area of Alberta comprises about 14,000,000 acres of land, including
spruce, lodge pole pine and a certain amount of Douglas fir. This is approximately 10 per cent, of the entire
area of the Province, which is estimated at about 160,000,000 acres. The Government contemplates adding
another 8,000,000 acres for a reserve, which will further increase the percentage. Nature does the reforestation in the area near the mountains, but in the prairie section seedlings are being set out in parts. 11,000
head of cattle and 25,000 sheep wintered in the reserves.
There are well-founded hopes of potash discoveries in relation to the very thick beds of gypsum on
the Peace River, some 300 miles north of this city.
Edmonton bank clearings for April were over $2,000,000 ahead of same month last year, which is
evidence of business activity. The growth of the district's commercial prosperity ia shown when these
figures are compared with those previous to 1914—then the bank clearings were only about half what they
are at present.
Extensive developments are taking place at the Provincial University. To meet growth requirements
of the College of Agriculture a further 320 acres of land have been acquired.
At the end of 1918 Alberta had 235 women's institutes, with a membership of 9,250. Upwards of 40
of these institutes have established rest rooms.
On May 19 it was stated preparations were being made by the local sheep-breeders' association to
handle the largest wool clip in its history. Numbers of new farmers are contributing and the association is
making arrangements to handle double last year's clip.
According to the official survey of the Provincial Government, Alberta's crop area this year is conservatively estimated to be 1,500,000 acres, or 20 per cent, greater than last year's. More of all field crops
have been sown, chiefly in wheat and oats. Since 1913, the crop acreage of the Province has doubled, most
of the gain being made in the last two seasons.
Claresholm, Alta.—Crop outlook was never better and with sufficient moisture this district should have
the largest crop in its history.   By May 17 all the wheat was above ground.
Lethbridge, Alta.—One of the largest garages in the West is being erected here by a concern which
distributes a moderate priced car popular with farmers. The same company, two years ago, imported
$1,000,000 worth of cars in one order, chiefly to meet local farmers' needs.
The sheepmen of Southern Alberta have been preparing for shearing, it being estimated that approximately 200,000 sheep would be ready for clipping by the end of May in this district.
Good results in the lambing season have been reported from all over the Province, with a general
increase of 100 per cent., or even greater. One of the biggest breeders of thoroughbred sheep in Southern
Alberta reported an increase of 118 per cent, of lambs, while at the Experimental Farm, Lethbridge, 180 per
cent, of lambs from a fair sized flock had been saved up to the end of April.
A despatch, dated May 14th, says: "Crop situation excellent. Wheat all sown; oats and barley well
"advanced. Much new breaking for flax. Range grass growing rapidly;"—and a news item, dated May
17th: "Altogether conditions are ideal. There has been no wind of any account lately, so that the moisture
"which has fallen has done the greatest amount of good. During the past week the weather has been much
"warmer and growth has started in earnest. Fall wheat and fall rye have been reported from different parts
"of the district. Range grass is also showing a wonderful growth. In many respects the season is similar to
"1915, when nearly every week brought a rain."
24 o
Fred J. Meech came from Dorsetshire,England,in 1912, and, after working out for a while, bought 80
acres of Canadian Pacific irrigated land*, five miles east of Lethbridge in the autumn of 1916, built a house and
barn and bought two horses and farming implements. In 1917 he broke about 50 acres, ran his ditches and
grew enough oats to keep himself and his horses going until next crop. Last year he had considerable acreage
in wheat and his crop was 1500 bushels wheat, 250 oats, 6 tons oat hay, 25 tons potatoes and from a one-acre
tract set apart as a garden he sold about $75 worth of vegetables, besides having enough for his own use till
the 1919 crop comes. He also commenced a small dairy with five cows which brings him in $90 per month.
He says: "I feel very strongly that anyone interested in farming who is coming to Canada would do well to
"look over Alberta and, if he decides to purchase land, should always see what the C.P.R. has to offer first.
"Their land is well graded and priced strictly according to value, and the terms of payment are the best yet
". . . . I consider that any man with a little capital and a determination to become acquainted with the
"conditions of the country can make no mistake in locating in this district."
A sample of alfalfa, ten inches tall, was brought to the Lethbridge Herald office on May 6 by J. S.
Holman, who picked it at Coaldale, Alta., from a meadow irrigated last fall. The abundant moisture in the
soil, coupled with fine warm weather, has caused the alfalfa to shoot up at a marvellous rate. Mr. Holman
had just finished seeding a non-irrigated farm at Stirling and was busy seeding an irrigated farm he had
purchased recently in the Coaldale district.
Whitla, Alta.—On May 14th, wheat was two inches above ground in many places and growth more
regular than usual with a high percentage of germination. ,    ,    ,
Coaldale, Alta.—Ben Pawson's experience shows that it pays to attend to the by-products in farming.
Last season he put in two acres of potatoes at odd times when he could not work on hay or grain. The
potatoes were watered twice, but otherwise given only slight attention. 600 bushels were taken from the
two acres and sold at 95 cents per bushel, which makes $285 per acre, while the cost of raising them was
negligible. Of course bigger yields can be produced, but this crop was a by-product and surely profitable
enough.
Brooks, Alta.—By May 12th, wheat on some farms was already six inches high. Prospects were particularly good on irrigated farms but generally ample moisture was available everywhere. Farmers consider
that, if the favorable conditions continue, the greatest crop in history will be harvested.
Dr. O. L. Daniels, who farms north of the Red Deer River, raised ten bushels of alfalfa seed last year,
which he sold to the Irrigation Investigation Branch of the Canadian Pacific Ry. for $25 a bushel.
Medicine Hat, Alta.—Over $100 per acre, or $11,083 from 98 acres of land is the 1918 record for a
100-acre irrigated farm east of this city. The result shows about 200 per cent, return on the original investment in the land for one season.
Rudyard Kipling called Medicine Hat "the town that was born lucky"—and possessing as it does
within its limits, inexhaustible supplies of natural gas, available for heating and power, its inhabitants have
a great advantage over people in most other cities. "The Hat" is already the home of some of Western Canada's largest industries, including flour mills, iron foundries, rolling mills, clay products plant and several
other manufactories.   In addition to this it is one of the most beautiful cities in Western Canada.
The Western Canada Irrigation Association has selected Medicine Hat for its convention this year,
to be held August 4, 5 and 6. While it may seem strange that a city primarily associated with manufacturing
should be chosen by an agricultural organization, Medicine Hat is really very greatly interested in irrigation
and agriculture, being one of the triangle of cities bordering on Southern Alberta's irrigated area.
Moose Jaw, Sask.—Building permits issued this year foreshadow great trade activity during the summer. April permits were in value 30 per cent, greater than April last year, while those issued since January
1st were 50 per cent, ahead of the same period of 1918.
April bank clearings show an increase of over $1,200,000 as compared with 1918.
Crop conditions are 100 per cent, normal. Moisture is plentiful and, by May 17th, wheat was showing
above ground in some places.   Farmers have sown more oats than usual.
A great change has taken place during the last four or five years in egg production in this Province.
Up to five years ago, eggs had to be imported to supply the home demand. Now from Moose Jaw alone
three carloads a week are exported. A car contains 450 cases and the price at Moose Jaw is 43c to 45c per
dozen f.o.b.—each car, therefore, is worth $6000.
Saskatoon, Sask.—Wheat sown two weeks before was up two inches by April 30 at the University farm
near this city.
Growth in business of the local flour mills necessitates an enlargement of the present warehouse
facilities. Work is beginning on an addition that will treble the present capacity.
A White Wyandotte pullet belonging to the University of Saskatoon laid 215 eggs in 365 days, and
there are several other heris there with records of 150 to 180 eggs in their first year.
Regina, Sask.—Regina is a city of 40,000 inhabitants, which began its existence in 1881, when the
first settlers built their shacks on the site of the present city. In 1882 it received its name from Princess
Louise, then Vicereine of Canada, in honor of Queen Victoria. In that year it had 200 inhabitants. During
its early days Regina was noted chiefly as a divisional point of the C.P.R., but it has long since outgrown the
status of a mere "tank town," although still notable as a railway centre. It is now the divisional headquarters of both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways, is the terminus of the Yorkton
branch of the G.T.P. and the starting point of the important branch line of the C.N.R. which runs to Prince
25 (Over) Regina, Sask.—Continued , / ;      -
Albert. Regina manages to combine the breezy informality of the prairie town with the busy prdgressiveness
of the thriving industrial city and the dignity of the leglislative seat. It is the capital of Saskatchewan and
is proud of its $2,500,000 parliament building and its many civic beauty spots. The area of the city is 7,850
acres, of which 257 are devoted to parks and 75 to the exhibition grounds where the annual provincial fair is
held. The city has 75 miles of graded streets, 30 miles paved, 19 miles boulevarded, municipal electric light
and power plant, waterworks and street railway with 33 miles of track, 23 churches, several colleges and
schools and a public library.    It has been named "The City of Certainties" by its enthusiastic citizens.
Keen interest in mixed farming is noted among farmers of this Province, a large number of farmers
changing their policy from straight grain growing and Government is encouraging the idea by supplying
farmers with breeding stock at cost; Indications are that requests for pure-bred sires will be 30 per cent,
greater than last year.
Value of building permits issued in Regina this year up to April 30 was about double last year's for     :?
corresponding period.   During April permits exceeding $100,000 in value were granted, chiefly for dwelling
houses.
Saskatchewan Department of Public Works has an appropriation of $1,260,000 for public buildings
this year. This sum includes $250,000 to be spent on the new provincial hospital for mental diseases (the
building eventually to cost $1,000,000); between $350,000 and $400,000 for a war memorial museum; $135,000
for new buildings at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon; $250,000 for a Normal School at.
Saskatoon; $100,000 for new courthouse at Yorkton; $110,000 for headquarters building Saskatchewan
Provincial Police at Regina; and $155,000 for an isolation hospital and other buildings connected with the
Hospital for Mental Diseases at Battleford.
Demand for Canadian wheat for seed purposes is becoming world-wide. Shipments have already been
made this season to France and Australia, and now it is learned a farmer has just consigned a part carload
of registered Marquis wheat to New Zealand. This seed wheat is of the same stock as that which won the
world's prize at Denver in 1917 and was grown by a farmer near Regina who, this year, is seeding 2,500 acres
to registered grain. d ^?
Work on the construction of a 2,000,000 bushel addition to the large terminal elevator of the Saskatchewan co-operation Elevator Company at Port Arthur, was to begin towards end of May. When this
addition is completed, the total capacity of the elevator will be 4,500,000 bushels.
The number of automobile users in Western Canada continues to grow. In Saskatchewan approximately 40,000 licences have been issued this year and applications are still coming in. This number far surpasses the number issued during same period last year and is partly due to the new settlers who are daily
taking up land in the Province and to the fact that many farmers are now providing themselves with additional cars.
Seventeen carloads of eggs shipped from Regina to Eastern and Western Coast destinations during
one week of May shows the growing importance of the local produce trade. The farmers are finding the
poultry business very profitable. Statistics of the Provincial Dairy Commissioner show this Province's revenue
from poultry products over $3,000,000 yearly, and the industry is growing rapidly.
A company has just been formed to operate a fox farm. Fifteen acres of land have been secured to
the north-west of this city and contract let for the erection of buildings to cost $10,000. A start is being
made with thirty pairs of animals.
Saskatchewan's ability to raise its own horses is manifested by the number of colts this year. The
provincial government puts it at approximately 15,000.
A record price for Saskatchewan creamery butter in carload lots was offered on the Regina market a
few days ago, when 63c per lb. was bid. The significance of market conditions is realized when it is stated
that the local wholesale price in small quantities is about the same as above, with the cost of wrapping and
cartons at 2c per lb.
The educational campaign carried on by the Governments of the Prairie Provinces in connection with
the dairy industry is bearing fruit as shown by the large proportion of first and special grade butter that is #*%
being produced and the ever-growing demand on the creameries from outside points. Consignments are
now being made regularly east and west to the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, as well as overseas and to some
of the large cities in the United States. The high standard of quality originally adopted is being surpassed
and all three Provinces now recognize a standard superior to the first; this is called "Special," and is as near
as possible to an ideal quality. Of the butter graded in Saskatchewan last year, 75 per cent, graded "first,"
while an additional 15 per cent, was in the "special" class. The educational plan consists in getting the
farmers to send the very best cream to the creameries and in showing them ways and means by which this
end can be accomplished.
It is expected that between 400,000 and 500,000 lbs. wool will be handled for Saskatchewan farmers
through the co-operative organization branch of the Provincial Department of Agriculture this year. In
1918, 916 consignments, aggregating 394,000 lbs., were handled by the branch and that was an increase over
the previous year—in fact, ever since a proper system of grading was introduced, the wool output has increased steadily and farmers have obtained better prices every year. Last year Saskatchewan farmers got
58|c per lb. for their wool and it is believed that similar high prices will prevail for some years to come.
Farmers report an exceptionally good crop of lambs this season. At the University Farm at Saskatoon
seven pairs of twins were found one morning and another four pairs the following morning.

What promises to be the largest reclamation work in this Province will be taken up by the Department
of Highways in the Yellow Grass Marsh district (near the town of ©Yellow Grass). Tenders have been submitted for the construction of 22 miles of ditch, the water to be discharged into the Souris River and the work
involving the excavation of 295,000 cubic yards of earth. The nature of the country will permit the water to
be taken care of by a ditch alone, no expensive flume work being necessary, and the undertaking will result
in the reclamation of some 14,000 acres of land, the work to be completed by December 1, 1920.
During April, three rural communities in this Province—viz., Dalmeny, Hyas and Kuroki—applied
for incorporation as villages.
Brandon, Man.—Encouragement in tangible form to the young raisers of baby beef in Manitoba was
given at Brandon recently, when about 60 calves, which had been cared for by boys of the Province, were
sold in record time at prices ranging from 20c to 41c per lb.
Winnipeg, Man.—The copper discoveries of Manitoba are rapidly assuming considerable magnitude.
Professor Wallace, Commissioner for Northern Manitoba, states that in one copper mine, as yet undeveloped,
20,000,000 tons of ore, averaging in value $8.75 per ton, have been blocked out.
A despatch, dated April 30th, says: "Building permits being issued at rate of fifteen daily. Residences,
"garages, stores, warehouses and works included. Number of old houses being repaired and additions made.''
As was anticipated, the close of the war is bringing about considerable building activity in the Canadian West.
Though considerable progress has been made in the agricultural development of the country during the last
four years, building operations have been almost stationary. Increased agricultural production has meant
increased business and industrial activity, which, if it had not been for the conditions caused by the war,
would have forced expansion long ago, while many more new industries would certainly have been established.
The supply of dwelling houses, too, falls short of the present needs. Various items in these Notes indicate that
increased building activity is general in the Western cities and it is not confined to the larger places. The
small towns are hives of industry, where the sound of hammering is heard from every direction continually
during the day. Indeed, in proportion to their size, the activity in the country places is generally much greater than in the cities, while the class of buildings that are going up would be a credit to any country town. In
Western Canada an era of real and substantial development has begun.
Several large manufacturing concerns have been incorporated in Manitoba recently. A mining company with a capital stock of $2,500,000 and a pulp mill capitalized at $200,000 will begin operations in the
Province this summer.
There is a keen demand for more land among Manitoba farmers. "Now that the labor situation is
"less acute," says the Winnipeg Telegram, "they are purchasing more land in order to grow as much grain
"as possible while the prices are at the present high level." This demand for land, which is particularly
brisk in the south-western part of the Province, has increased its value and farm lands are now selling at 25
per cent, higher than at this period last year.
Loans granted by the rural credit societies this year will provide for cultivation of 30,000 acres of
virgin prairie land.   The system is enabling members to secure more livestock also.
Beekeeping is one of the farm industries in which Western Canada offers great possibilities. The
Nor-West Farmer recently said: "Certainly there will always be an unequalled market in these provinces for
"all the honey that can be produced. There is no question about that. To give some idea of the returns
"from beekeeping it may be stated that in 1918 in Manitoba 14,736 colonies of bees produced 944,000 lbs. of
"honey, an average of 64 lbs. per colony. Demand for bees from beginners is larger than usual this spring.
"Swarms are selling at about $15.00 each."
The people who cater for the entertainment of the inhabitants of Western Canadian towns and cities
are preparing for a period of prosperity as is shown by recent announcements regarding the building of new
motion-picture houses. Winnipeg and Calgary are each to have new half-million dollar theatres, while
smaller theatres are planned for many other cities. The cities of Western Canada are already well provided
in this respect and the new theatres are planned in anticipation of growth that will accompany the development of the country.
In the Province of Manitoba there are 220 Boys' & Girls' Clubs and 1,100 branch clubs, embracing
in all 25,000 members, who, last year, engaged in one or more of the club activities which include gardening
and the raising of pigs, sheep, calves and poultry, and in other agricultural pursuits. In the pig clubs, 3,000
pigs were raised and 2,000 of them were shown at the Boys' & Girls' Club Fairs.
The co-operative plan of marketing wool will be followed in Manitoba again this year and it is expected
there will be a large increase in the number of growers participating, as well as in the quantity of wool handled.
The suitability of Western Canada for sheep is all that could be desired, and experienced sheep-breeders say
they know of no country where sheep are less liable to disease.
The Prairie Provinces of Canada this year have the largest area in crop on record, according to reports
received; The greatest increase is in Alberta, where considerably over 9,000,000 acres are planted and the wheat
acreage is 400,000 ahead of last year, when approximately 3,900,000 acres were sown to wheat. There are
nearly 1,000,000 acres more of oats and 100,000 more of barley sown. Rye is a crop that seems to be grown-
ing in popularity with Alberta farmers and double last year's area has been devoted to that crop.     In Sask-

atchewan there is little if
any, increase in the area
sown to wheat, but more
oats have been sown than
last year. Manitoba expects a record-breaking
year in the production of
wheat, as considerable new
land broken last year has
been sown to that grain,
dnd there is also some increased acreage of oats and
barley in Manitoba. It is
probably safe to say that
the three provinces have
30,000,000 acres sown to
the principal grain crops—
: wheat, oats, barley and flax.
Last year nearly26,700,00O
1 acres were sown  to  three
] crops; 7,109,236 acres in
Alberta; 15,778,000 in
j Saskatchewan, and 5,801,-
000 in Manitoba. It will be
J seen, therefore, that last
year's record crop acreage
has been overtaken year.
