The making: of nApIo sugar and syrup b�s become but a meuiory: in .recollection of reslflents in m^ny or the oTder parta of Canada. The, industry is still, however, an import-mnt one over large areas in Quebec and to a less,extent in Ontario and the provinces down by the sea.. Sugar making Irpm the maple, which is; confined entirely to this conUncnt.l had a very early beginning. Beferei !the advent of .the white man the In-., dian had le^irned to extract and con-i centratc the sap of the. maple tree. On the approach of sprtng the trees were gashed, the tomahawk, in a slanting direction and beneath thej opening mad$.was inserted a vood-i en chip or spout ^to direct the fluidf drop by droj|:inta[ the receptacle rest-j ing oa thergroi(|ind. The sap *was; caught in a birch bark dish and bail-! ed in earthen vkettleiy. The small quantity of dark�: thick syrup thus made was the only sugar available to the Indians and Is stated by early writers to have been highly prized. The early setMers from the Old Land learned from- thie Indians the art of sugar makinr and indeed followed ifor many years: their crude methods of raanufactdire. .Even yet primitive equipment, and methods are stated to be used in back sections of the country that turn out their annual crop of inferior-synu) and sugar.

From the golf Unks you may watch the fishermen catcji mllllonB of sardines in thedr weirs that are set a few hundred yards, or less, frojn the shore. And old men and old women may often be .seen gathering shell fish on the beach.
