From Toronto other trails lead north, northwest and northeast into Paradise, so vast and so varied in its scenic beauty and attractiveness that the incoming tourist, having read a few of the many descriptive pamphlets which picture the various resorts, suffers from an embarrassment of riches. But no matter which trail you take, it will lead you into a land exceedingly fair, for there are thousands of lakes and resorts between Toronto and Hudson's Bay that are inde- scribably charming and attractive. There are the Thirtv Thousand Islands of the Georgian Bay, threaded by the splendid steamers of the Northern Navigation Company, for those who like to sit and lounge lazilv aboard ship, and watch the islands drift by like play-house scenes pi childhood. And there, away to the north, is'Temagami, made more interesting recently by the marvellous discoveries nearby of Cobalt and Gowganda, probably the richest silver fields in the world. Temagami Lake, with its many islands and its three thousand miles of shoreline, and_two attractive hotels for those who want hotels, is an extremely fascinating spot for those who want to get "back of the "beyond the In the lakes, reached by short 'portages from Lake Temagami, the best bass fishing to be found on the con- tinent can be had. From the head of Lake Temagami, the canoeist may drift down the Montreal River, find splendid fishing and have a glimpse of the new mining fields along that stream. If you take the trail due north from Toronto, three or four hours' ride will bring you to Muskoka Lakes, and to the Royal Muskoka Hotel Ponce de Lion of the north. A few miles farther up the line. you arrive at Huntsville. where pretty little lake steamers with romantic Indian names, carry you down Fairy River, across Fairy Lake, to the Wawa, easily the most charming and delightful summer hotel to be found in the Dominion. There is boating, golf, tennis and entrancing trails that wind about through the native forest. There are ample airy rooms with hot and cold water, brass bedsteads, electric short, all the modem comforts of civilization with the wild wood at the back-door. In a tower at the top of the house there is a revolving searchlight, that lights the little Island-studded sea; picks up the incoming steamer, the fishermen corning in with their fish, the young couple in the bark canoe, her hand iiThis. _The-boats cal1 at the "ft'awa. sail on up the Lake of Bays to irom which point fishermen may portage over to Hollow Lake, where the largest trout are taken. And then. too. from Toronto there that wonderful sail down the St. Lawrence through the Thousand Islands, through Lachine Rapids to Montreal. This, of course, is only a splash, a mere hint, of what the Hicrh- lands hold for the tourist. The vexing problem of what to do with the bov in the Days" is being solved by hundreds of American and Canadian parents, who bundle the boys off to one of the manv boys' camps in the healthv Hignlanas ot Ontario, where they can be taught a little, entertained much, and kept clean-minded and happy. The general idea is to establish a ca'mp in some wild spot, where the boys may live under canvas and get a genuine bit of simple life. A corps oi instructors maintain discipline and give such book instruc- tion or none, as the boys may desire or neecTin their regular school work, or preparation lor college. A feature of the camp is instruction in the elements ot woodcraft. The farther in the wild the camp is pitched, the more interesting is the camp life, and the more valuable the woodcraft training, making a veritable School of the Woods. Canada is probably the only country in the Western Hemisphere that can offer the most attractive territories for life in the untrammeled wilds and where there is still a magnificent wilderness of land and waterscapes. lorests. mountains and rivers, lakes and streams which teem with the gamiest of fish, and whose forests abound with numerous species or big game and game birds. Among the principal districts that appeal to the lover of "out-of- doors. Ontario has the most attractive, and several popular localities in this Province are becoming better known each year. The territory- is known as the "Highlands of Ontario." embracing nine distinct districts. Those most suitable for camping and canoeing, however are the Temagami Forest the Algonquin National Park of Ontario the Lake of Bays" region, and Lake It has come to pass, owing to the waste and destruction of the iorests ot America, sometimes by fire, and to make fields for the fanner, that the American tourist has nowhere to shade him from the summer sun. The must turn his face to the Xorth. Ami nowadays the North no longer means anything- but Canada and its fastnesses. One of these "silent places" that is just beginning its passing and vet is within thirty-six hours of Chicago, twenty-four hours of New City, and twelve hours of Buffalo, is the Temaaami Forest Reserve, situated 300 miles north of Toronto in Northern Ontario rhe_Reserve is a practically unbroken wilderness of 5 900 square miles or torest and water. Lake Temagami. shaped much like a octopus, has 100 square miles of water. 1.400 islands and 3 000 mifes of shore line Ihe whole Reserve is a network of lakes and connecting streams lying m an unbroken forest. Here the campers can crO for hundreds ot miles by canoe and portage without seeing a clcanV a house or a white man. to Xatl5e "yas in an Conical mood when she made the Temagami region To the eye-it is a beautiful mingling of forest and watered hills. The hills are solid rock. There is nothing here for the farmer ihere is nothing here for the grazier. It would be a paradise for the lumberman It may be a second Cobalt for the miner. It is unex- celled tor the city man, who yearns to get near to nature's heart seeing these things, the Province of Ontario created a playground of 0.900 miles ot torest reserve for the people. It seems almost ridiculous to speak of a country as a wilderness when there are three hotels on its principal lake and two steamboat ones running on regular schedule. Moreover, there is the Hrdsun's Bay Company's post on Bear Island, in the bodv of Lake Temagami with us store and church and little cluster of dwellings But this is literally all. There is nothing else. and there >ou may catch from the steamer a glimpse of a tent showing white against the gray of the rocks and the green of the forest; vou mav see the spiral smoke or a camp fire in the distance, and vou mav even meet or pass a canoe paddled by campers or anglers. But over all hanas the silence and mystery of the wilderness. The hotels and the but emphasize the solitude; the steamer's course is but one path in the wild, behind the nearest is quite possible to run into a lordlv moose or a noble red deer or a lumbering bear To the right and left, before and behind, lies a labvrinth of islands and beyond the islands yet other labyrinths of portage and lake and hJls in the midst ot the virgin iorest.
