TO THE PUBLIC We have bought out the Star Transfer Co Draylng outfit, and are prepared to execute all orders for IN WESTERN CANADA of Forest Winnipeg as in Toronto. The res- erves are under constant patrol sum- mer and winter. Only two fires of J any consequence occurred in 1908. Of 1 these one in "The Pines" reserve burned, over 22 square miles but de- stroyed no merchantable timber; the other, in the Turtle Mountain Ee_ serve, burned over 28 square miles, mosily .covered with grass. Both fires however, large quantities of young growth. Various methods employed to prevent fire, such as the j burning of fire lines and the plough- j ing of fire guards are mentioned. Roads through the reserves and. along their boundaries are also being con- structed, largely with this end in view. One hundred and fifty miles of such roads were made last year, Experiments are being made with a view to reforesting -areas on the re- serves that have been- denuded by fire; sowing is favored rather than planting. i A number of squatters were remov- ed from the reserves during 1903, one hundred and. twenty-six from the Riding Mountain Reserve and twenty- :.five from the Turtle Mountain Re- serve. In spite of the delicate nature of this work it has been so carried out that all those removed have made affidavit to the effect that they have i.been well treated and are pleased with the change. The boundaries of the reserves are "TRfLBY" AT THE LYCEUM It may be true that the play's the thing, and it is undoubtedly nefes- sary that there should be a dramatic basis of some kind or other to work on.

Reserves are and produce a supply of timber for. the people of the prairie, the homestead- ers' needs being considered of first importance. They are not intended to furnish wood for the lumber trade. Hence the policy of the Department is favorable to small mills rather than to large ones which need large (tracts of forest and manufacture lum- ber beyond the needs of the settlers." i Mr. Knechtel then gives in detail the area of the different reserves, with the dates of their formation! The areas are summarized as follows: Manitoba (5 3575 so. miles. Saskatchewan (4 740 sq. miles. Alberta (6 9702 sq. miles.
