"First call for lunch, now on in the diner"
The waiter announces. No news could be finer.
So let's walk quickly through the train
And sit at the fresh, whit** table again.
Soup, meat and potatoe;, perhaps some pie,
Or salad and jelly — there's lots to try.

Healthy Billy Beaver, napkin tucked in tight,
Sits close to the table, eats with all his might.
Juicy Birch pancakes give Billy a treat
But we'll have crisp bacon and such things to eat.

Make us feel glad that so early we're up.

It's lots of fun on the C.P.R. train
That's why we eat with might and main.
For supper there's always something nice,
Fish or steak, tapioca or rice.
And the friendly waiter is so polite
As he pulls back the chair and says goodnight.
Or, for children under 12 years
half portions from the regular
menu at half price. FOR PARENTS ONLY
In addition to paying the bill you may have to answer some questions.
Perhaps the following will refresh your memory:
Beavers are: About 10 inches high. About 3 feet long, including
tail.    About 15 to 25 Ibs. in weight.
They live in colonies by clear streams or on the banks of lakes,
building dams   -for which they fell trees—packed with mud to
raise the water level. Just like human engineers, they curve
dams to face fast water. Their circular lodges—15 feet high,
7 feet across    have under-water entrances. Beavers' front
feet have five fingers and an extra claw for combing their reddish
brown fur. The hind feet are webbed. Favourite foods are:
leaves and bark of yellow poplar, clover, dandelions and grasses
and, in winter, the bark of canoe birch, scrub oak and brush maple.
