This is the volume by Paul Kane, tho artist, extracts; trom which arc to be found in sonie of the old Ontario public school nvadnr.i. Though protty well foigotv;J ton, n cunta'ns the story of one q\ tha most remarkable Journeys ' ever madf- hy a Canadian through his native country. ;j' i'aiil Kane was born in Little York now Toronto, "in iSlO, long before this city had laid claim to ^bcing the A'thnns of Canada. After some years siAsiit a'vroaid in studying art lie r*^ turn:d and attracted tb3 attention of Htom. O. W. Allan, of Toronto and Sij- George Siinpscn, the governor of the Ilud.son's liuy Company, by his paintinge, repnasantativo of Indian ind fronytier life. In 1814, enooUr-a^d by those patrons, he planned an cxtonsivo Western trip. In 1846 he started, hut on reaching the Sault he T^und ho had set out upon bif! adV'oncure too late, and woa forced to rotum. In the spring of 1840 ho commctioad his memoraii'o journey. In company with Sir OeolgB Siimpscn. Kane travelled' by all the slow and ardous mcthoda^known in those days, right across the growt Wo�t, passing throu,^h/ Fort William. Fott Oarry^ Fort Edmonton and many other posts, through tho Oregon country, and on to Fort Victoria on V'ani'ouv-or Island. He nwt with remarkable advmturea, "bdf-laio-hitRt.n^, exploring, fighting In-couricils of cMuis, making portages, trading, putting ail those scene* of on canvas, and with many and car�' IKople and places vory clovorely upi-dians. s.hooling rai)ids, attmding ful ol>servutions into a book." After \\\a years of wanderinig Kane roturned fiom tdie West in 1848, and Eot to Work on 'his book and on the ele.boratlono'i his sketches. He had intendoi to follow the (Irat. volunto with eno'thar, and possibly to nmke another joajrney, when his eyesight faitod and work, either of brush or pen, had to be given up. The disap-poini^ient .o( having th,us to forego his chosen litt> work avob very great. Sir Daniel Wilson says of him: ''My nietnory of tha veteran artist is of a grull and nwody luan, emibittered by tha sparing gratitude of. a peopla to whose information and pioasurs h� biMl sacritiood his life." Kana has been described as the Father' of Canadian Art. and a man who was "not an adventurer merely or an j artist seeking nowlty, but a patrio-; tic Canadian tilled with a largo and worthy idea." Paul Kane's book, called "Wan -dorin|ra of an Artist, among the Indians of North" America from Can-ada to Vancouver's Island and pp�-goh. throufiJi tlio Hudson's Day Comipany's territory and baclf again, contains a dsscrlption of a. bufIk.lo bunt, which is probably the moat realistic account over gi\'en, of the manner in which these animals were slaughteixKl when they ra�nM>d the prairies in numerous herds. When he rc�(.h:d Winnipog. tb^n Fort Oarry, he found that the settlement had moved westward for the semi- annual buffalo hunt Just three days before his arrival. This was, how. ever, the very sort of thing he had come-fill 'the vay front Toronto to see and engage in. so, securing a guide, he followed in the wako of title live hundiwd carts, the men. women, children and dogs of the art.-t'en'jont, In describing the hunt, in which he enthusJastically took part, ho says: "The nrst dny.ibulTalo wore sighted was a day of great excitement U> all in the party. Women and children, *jnHe eciually with .huntors, were eager for th.i sladghtcr, the horses sesiro cd keen, and the d^ga whined expectantly, o^tm forgetting to flght. Twenty-five were soon tho flrsrt day and for the next few days only a few. At last ths scouts ridlny hftk r�Mrt�� Ml flMMias herd �r koils Iwut two miles ahead � FriMU a rim of ground they ?ould he mm covering a wkle expanse of plain, scat -tered out, quietly feediag. It waa contrary to the law of the tiibe iu such a case for any to attack before all wAe ready. Fdr a few nkinutes there was grsat hustle of prapam-tion. lilach hunter looked to tiie girths, leaded his rifle, aad 0IM hie mouth with balls, so that be aright re-Iced while at ful) speed. 'Hte older hunters oautloeed the youii�sr, and the chief of the hunt gave floal orders. Thelhoraes WMre then NiriUHd toward the hard nod had eotas wMI�> in itOO yards before the hidMA aware of danger. Tkan wi'th bound, they sot off at a Creait 1 bering gallop, and ths chaas was en. In about twenty minutes the hua-ters were in t^ mJdet of the buflhlo. riding-recklessly, end firing wt a few yards distance. As each buOaUi fMI tha hunter who claia�d him threw ofT some article of apparel, a rei^, a cap, or scarf carried for thsA purpose, to mark their prey, then ee-loading at full gallop, spHlinf a bult^ into the barrel and atrikinf t>he butit on tte saddle pommel, he v-as soon akjn^side another wiotim.
