His appearance however, far from being the sigivil for an outburst of joy d tlicro for the |)ast two years. Sineo 1879 he has boon witii the IikIImm Di^partmont, and has been at Fori I'l'lly, ICdinon-ton. Fort Qu'Appello, Onion Lake, and also has acted ns n'iiof agent at Moose Mountain and Touchwood Hills. The Pas Indian Agency. compriBo.s the reserve at tiu! I'as, where there ar^^LI Indians on 7,610 acres of land; Moos'nco at the other. Formerly the day school for the Indians was conducted in the office building, but since the removal ol the Indians to the north side oi the l^vor the school is conducted over Ihero. Dr. .\ithur La Rose is the medical officer attached to tlu'agency, and has hold office for the past six years. The only school at Tlie Pas is that maintained by the Anglican Mission, and which is attended b> all the white children as well as the Indians. Rev. M. 11. F.dwards is the rector in charge of the mission. His residence is on what is called The Lsland, and is considered one of the most desirable sites on the river. Thfl church is one of the old .stylo, and has been rebuilt and repaired several fimes. Wlien the Franklin relief expedition wont north nearly fifty years ago, a part of the company wintered at The Pas, and wliile there they made some of the lurniluro now used in the Anglican church, Outside the church on a separate tower is the bell which calls the Indians and whites to servico. The Indians in that eo\intry are all Christians- a tribute to the good work done by the missionaries during the past half century. At all of the resefves in the agency the established church muin-tain mission stations, with rectors in charge. These are the only missions on the reserve with the exception of at Fort Cumberland, whore there is a Roman Catholic mission, in charge of Rev. Father Boissin. At all of the resen'os there .arc posts of the Hudson's Bay Company, the largest ones being at Fort Cumberland and Cedar Lake. The school toachor.s at the reserves have in charge the supplies of the Indian Department, which are kept for destitute Indians. The Indian never makis any provision for old age, and when this time comes those wards of the Government an." cared for from the funds secured by the sale of the lands surrendered by the Indans in years gone by. Indians Live Well. The Indians at those Northern reserves made a good living and as a rule live in comfort on the proceeds of their own labor. In the winter the majority of them trap and soil their fur to the Hudson's Bay company or to the fur traders in the country. The only fur in that section of the country which i)roduci'3 much revenue is the niuskrat, which this year is very plentiful. Around The Pas the year's crop of rat skins varies from 50,000 to 200,000 of rat skins, the latter number being a record year. They arc made up in bales and shipped southward in boats in the spring. The 'Indians who are good boatmen are employed during the summer months occasionally to run to York boats with the company's supplies up to Reindeer Lake. In winter there is also of late years considerable fishing 16t the Northwest Co., which has been securing fish in large (juan-titios for the past seven years from Cedar; Cormorant, Clearwater, Jfooso, Sturgeon and Cumberland lakes. The Indians also fish and hunt the yoai' round for their own food. Since the Hudson's Bay road wont through there are a number of Indians engaged in taking freight througli 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 propar(>d. It 'requires a good deal of labor to prepare land, but many of them have good patches of potatoi-s for their own use and thoy are very fond of this vegetable. The trader in charge of the company's post at The Pas h\is demonstrated the success of raising garden stuff in that country, and his garden would be a credit to any place several hundred miles south. He has rai,3od garden stuff at all the different posts where ho has been stationed in the north, and is sure that there is no difficulty in the work. The Indians on the Rod Earth reserve are the most intelligent and most self-reliant in the agency, and thoy are making good homos forthem--soh'o.s. At The Paa there is but one saw mill. It is owned and op.'rated solely by the Indians, v/ho cut tiie lumber for their own uses, soiling but little. They have built good, substantial houses, and are steadily progressing in civilization. At present there is Jio liquor allowed at The Pas, but with the growth of the country and th(( town it is feared that this bane will work its way in, ami will undo some of the good work already accomplished. The chief timber limits along the PAGE THREE Snskntchowjin in the vioitiity of The Pas are along the Carrot River, and it is there that C, H. Smith, of Wisconsin, and Herman Finger, of Port Arthur, have big tracts Their roiuo-soiitalivo osliniatos the amount of timber on their laiid.s a(, 1,200,000,000 foi't. At the recent sale ot the town silo at The I'as llioso oapilalists fio-eurod a desirable location for their mill. When Ihero is a regular train operating to the town the firm intend to start a saw mill, which will furnish a good deal ot material to bo linulod out by a rnilw.ay.
