The lad who had run- away 'from home last- July, strong in the belief that he could achieve and for- tune, was no less astounded at the reception he received, than were his parents :'oyer "the fact that he had bobbed not quite serene- at any rate in flesh and blood. Then followed explanations, aud-the_homecoming of the wander- er was rapidly turned into a scene of jubilation in which the fatted' calf was killed, and the neighbors" and friends were called in to participate in the rejoicing. The explanation of .all this lies iu the fact that Alex. Paul was sup- posed to be dead, and his death was registered iu the office of the city- clerk, to whom the family applied yesterday for cancellation" of the no- tice. Members of the Paul family at- tended on Aug. 13 last, what pur- ported to be "the funeral of their son and and hence his appear- ance as the visitation one from the dead.

The country to the north in the direction of Hudson Bay has been opening up steadily for tin- past twenty years, and now the railways tiaverse much of .the laud where wheat farming is most profit- ably pursued. The wheat now at work producing its millions of bushelh of which at present goes mostly over the Great Lakes on its- way to the Old Country, In this way it has to be carried from Fort William to the sea in lake boats, and is then transferred to the big ocean liners, which take it across the water. In shipping wheat out through Hud- sou Bay this transfer avoided from the fact that the ocean liners will be able to load from.the cars at Fort Churchill or from the immense elevators which will assuredly be erected at that point within the next few years. The water route from Fort Wiliam is" miles, and from Fort, Churchil to Liverpoo is only making a saving of 'more than miles at the outset. Winnipeg is approximatey 400 miles .from the lakes and 900 .miles from Fort Churchill, so that even from the east- envpart of "the wheat field there will still be an advantage by the Bay route. Front the wheat-fields of Sas- katchewan and Alberta'the Bay route will give jm advantage of fully miles, iu addition to the saving in freight rates caused by the facility of shipment on the Bay route." The west has been planning on the great north- ern: wate.r route for many years, but has never before had a Federal Gov- ernment take, the project in hand with a determination to prosecute it to a successful issue.

There is but one settlement on "the. Hudson Bay line, and that is the location of the Ruby Lake lumber out- Ot, six miles.up the line on the lake of the same name. From there to The Pas there is no settlement, and the country immediately adjoining the road is of the character which precludes the possibility of ever being is of musl-eg through which the road runs, and even though this be dry the tira- upon it is scrubby, and will not be valuable commercially. Hudson Bay Junction. Hudson Bay Junction, or Etiomami as the southern terminus of the road is called, is about two years of age, and has a population of well up to two hundred souls. Business is de- cidedly brisk during ihe fall and win- ter, when large gangs of men are em- ployed in the surrounding lumber camps.

The Indian agency offices at The Pas are locates right in the centre oi the town site with the agent's residence at one sidi and agency doctor's residence a the. other.

Rev. M. B. Edwards is the in charge of the mission.. His residence is on -whut is called .The Island, arid is considered one of the most desirable sites on the river. The church is one of the old style, and has been rebuilt and repaired several fimes. When the Franklin relief expedition went north nearly fifty years ago, a part of the company wintered at The Pas, and while there' they made some of the furniture now used in the Anglican church. Out- side the church on a separate tower is the beli which calls the Indians and whites to service.

R. have constructed sidings every nine miles, and at every 18 miles they have erect- ed a handsome depot. The depot on the Saskatchewan River is one which would be a credit to any town of j 000 inhabitants in many parts of the West. It is evident the builders had faith in the country judging by the investment ihey have already made and upon which they are stil planning.

The PasquiarRiver, ivhich en- ters the Saskatchewan at The Pas, is a long winding stream; which along its upper source crosses the Hud- son's Bay road about 50 -miles; from Etiomami, making. the longest bridge on the line, some" 300 feet in .length. To the east of the town and distant about 40 miles, runs the long' range of the Pasqua Hills, or, as the old timers call them, The Pas mountains. H. B. Company There. The Pass is a Hudson's Bay Com- pany's post more than. 50 years old, tvhich, however, would not make it an old post in the history of the com- pany. Their store and big warehouse is well as the dwelling- of Gideon ftalcrowe, the trader Jn charge, are located directly at the confluence of the Pacquia and and is eminently the most desirable location in the town. It a fortified post, as there was never any danger from the Indians, but the buildings all face the.river, as it has always been from that, direction th'at entrance has been made from boats, canoes, or steamers. The company's steamer Saskatchewan runs down the river and plies back and forth with freight and passengers. The store is a long building built more thftn 20 years ago; the big warehouse was erected but two years ago. Recently ihe company purchased a large lot at, the rervr of their buildings, ..upon which next summer there will be erected a large up-to-date store. The company recognizes that The Pas has at last come to be a place of import- ance, and, as has been their custom, they are preparing to hold the busi- ness they have. The Pas is at pres- ent only an ordinary trading post of the company under the chief factor at Prince Albert, but with the advent of an operating railway it is probable that it will be raised in importance. the indans in years gone by. Well. -The Indians -at these Northern re- serves made, a good living and as rule live in comfort on the proceeds of .their own labor. In the winter the majority of them trap and sell their fur to the Hudson's Bay company or to the fur traders in the country.

The Indians also fish and hunt the" year" round for, their own food. Since the Hudson's Bay road went through there are a number of Indians en- gaged in taking freight through on handcars, and they furnish plenty of motive power for the work. In agricultural work the Indians have not done very much as the land on the reserves is not easily prepared. It "requires a good deal of labor to prepare land, but many of them have good patches of potatoes for their own use and they are very fond of this vegetable.
