Sheith Tilleu I Specialists in as a Resort Su mmer ONE of the available and :i source of revenue to the Dominion, is her growing popularity as 11 summer resort. It has been stated that twelve million iloUars is spent annually in Maine by tourists. This is became Maine is ok'., advertised, and famous as a place where weary mortals mav rest, where the fisherman may fish, and the huntsman hunt; but when Canada becomes known to the people of the Republic, who, of course, make up the bulk of the summer travel, millions of dollars will be spent here. This will not detract, in any measure, from other ovu-uoor places, because the more men go the more they want to go It is bLvoming more and more a recognized fact" that every man, woman, ami child should have, at least once a yeart a loafing'season. Even Hetty Green, the richest woman in the world, takes a" holiday every year and goes back to the simple life in the loafs'and lounges in the little country town up in New England where the people are quaint, original and honest; Where the creeks arc clear, and the skies blue. And the hearts of the people kind and true; Where folks do just as they want to do- Folks that are Hvin' in the country The Lake ot Bays is far the largest lake in the Huntsville District. From the deck of the "Iroquois" or "Mohawk" can be seen some inland scenery unsurpassed. The wooded hills billow away in every direction, not a rough, inhospitable shore always, for here and there are wide open reaches running down1 to the lake and sometimes away high on the hills are fine farms, from which the lakeside hotels draw new garden truck. butter, buttermilk and sweet cn-am fur ihe summer tourists. There is a" ten-mile sail across the Lake of Bays, but many an enthusiast has taken on" his hat long beiore_he has reached the half-way island. named her Oueen of Lakes as she smiled up at the blue sky, her "emerald island jewels glowing upon her quiet breast. The very trees that top the high hills that surround her shores seem to sing the praises of the Lake of Bays. The natural charm and accessibility of this section are friends year by year for the Huntsvillo District' of which the Lake of Hays is easily the chief charm. iJwight Bay, with its green shore curving caressingly around it. and sloping "er.tiy and grad'uaily back, groves with evenness running down to the water edge, through which we get glimpses f for a good many vears as they have to the Muskoka District, but until I'.MKS there was not sufticient accommodation to attract a great number of the best class of tourists. Last year a beautiful hotel called the Wawa was built at Norway Point Wawa is fndian for Wild Goose." and as the wild geese go north in summer, so the tourists betake themselves to the Highlands of Ontario and to the When the proposition came up to build a beautiful hotel at Norway Point. where the beach spreads out on tile sleeping shore, the Grand Trunk repre- sentatives predicted that they would be able to fill the hotel the first season, and with that promise or prediction, the work was cornmenced. Tr: the surprise of tile promoters and ihe builders of the hotel, the house was filled, not the first but the first month it was opened. During the month of June alone three hundred applicants turned away, representing perhaps five hundred people. In jusliricati'T; "f at llie opening of this article, that the more summer resorts we have, the more people will come, it is interesting to know that the new resort, opening a new pleasure land in the Highlands of Ontario. has actually helped the older resorts in the Muskoka District. Hundreds of people who were unable to find n.-om at the Wawa. hastened to secure accom- k modation at the Royal Muskok.i and other older hotels in the well-known i distrut. t The Hun'sville District affords every variety of scenery. The calm r pastoral -.f Verr.on. the ror.iantic and rugged Tr.ouruainoiis grandeur of Hollow, k the fine bathing and quiet scenery of Lake of Bay.-., and the picturesque beauty, t coupled with the fishing and 'mnUing along the entire chain, lend itr.r.u ti- in and :i ifety ami hilarity; wl ere in the early summer the speckled trout, unwary, eks'the wriggling worm or the artificial fly, ami through all the summer >wn in the cool depths the noble salmon trout awaits, the whirl of your otier or archer spinner at the end of your copper troll-line; where the. skies and the clouds at sunset make ihe fading light go farther than Russell Sage could make a ten-dollar bill; where the sone or the call uttered in the nvilight or under the moonlight is taken up by the circle of the surrounding hills and played into a melody ot echtx's; _ where you can on the nights gather around a fireplace crackling with Norway pine and cedar just for the blaze and fragrance, and plenty of beech and hardwood for solid heat; where all the children and all the dyspeptics suddenly turn into one group of appetites; where the insomnia wretch sleeps twenty-six hours out of tin1 day anil still more out of th" mght; where there are no nerves and no worry." Fish abound. Speckled trout, salmon trout ami black bass are plentiful in these waters; while whiretish, salmon trout and speckled trout are found in great quantities in the waters of the surrounding lakes. As a field for the geologist and mineralogist, the district is interesting. Wahawin, a delightful resort consisting of one hundred and forty acres, has a frontage on the Lake of Hays. Beginning at a fine shelving beach, it rises in natural terraces 70 to SO feet to a plateau is wooded on the slope with the choicest ofhardwood trees. The location commands one of the tir.est views on the lake. Cottages are available here, also fine locations for cottage siies. Not the on ihe chanus of Wahawin lies in the many woodland walks radiating in every direction from the cottages.

Located on a fine Hay or. :i sloping hillside, with fine bathing beach, this resort includes some oOU acres of land, part wooded and part cultivated. Extcr.sive addition improvements have been made here durintr the past and resort has room capacity for guests; beautifully cleared walks through the woods, along the lake shore, tennis courts and croquet grounds and a fine baseball ground situated on the brow of the hill back of the house overlooking the lake; a large covered pavilion. !OU feet by 1J feet for dancing, musicales, etc., electric lighted, has been erected, and weekly evening excursions to this point are run by the "Iroquois" for social hops or other amusements. Christmas .should be a day of joy. but joy should not be allowed to die out of our lives when the day is past and over. It should stay with us ever after. We should sing the Christmas refrain through all the new year and keep our hearts bright with the cheer, and glow of the Christmas thought. We should carry continuallly in our hearts a deeper sense of the presence of God. We should from this time learn to find the beauty and good in all things and show to all the world our belief that since God loves us, and Jesus Christ is our eternal Friend, "all's well with the world" and with us who are in his tender CHRIST, the perfect babe, is born, HOLY, holy is the morn. ROYAL gifts the wise men bring. INCENSE for immortal King. SING His praise O angel throng TILL a world repeats the song, MAKER, God of Heaven and earth, ALL shall glorify His birth. is the morn. The babe lying in a manger, heaven's gift to earth, is the picture we most easily understand of how the glorious life was literally given in love of our race. But the fact of the love gives itself is none the less when we see that life being lived for others in later years, and at last, as a necessary part of its true and full living, dying for the F. Cope. In one of the German picture galleries is a painting called Cloudiand. It hangs at the end of a long gallery, and at first sight it looks like a huge, repulsive daub of confused color, without form or comeliness. As you walk toward it, the picture begins to take shape, it proves to be a mass of exquisite little faces, which somehow or other immediately rivet the attention like those at the head of the canvas in Raphael's Madonna San Sisto." If you come close to the picture, you see only an innumerable company of little angels and cherubim. How often the soul that is frightened by '.rial sees nothing but a confuted mass of broken expectations and crushed hopes! But if thai soul instead of tleeing away into unbelief and despair, will only draw up near to God, it will soon discover that the cloud is full of angels of the Rev. Theodore L. Cuvler. D D The Rev.
