Charles Lewis Shaw in the Edmonton Neva gives tho following interesting story of the old Culgary-Kd -monton trail:- Beftt remembered of all was the old Calgary and Edmonton trail, in the beginning of the war-path ol Cree and Blackfeet, then thu trail of the fur trader, then of the survey parties, then -the old stage line and now the Calgary and Edmonton railway. It Is astonishing how succeeding pro pie and conditions have followed preceding footprints in thu Canadian west anil what a world of (Kissing tones must yet. cling to the historic trail whose terminals were* C�lg: and Edmonton.

It was of the utm� *-phere of the Fur West an.I was part ly due to associations with tin* Indians, tho most irregular and unsystematic of human beings, un imAeit ion on the part of whites in*n among natural surround.ngs to ivturn to primitivo comlitions, appealing par-tiruhirly to the tp.stincli\oly primitive white races such as the C.dt.u theory corroborated by the fact that the ma lor portion of the hulMireod population of Western Canada is of Highland Scotch or Breton blood, proved by the assertion that the Inrce proportion of the oflleers nni' employes of the Hudson Hay Company, with its century of pencefifi occupation, were Uiirh'aud ^f lu'-ng erected at intervals of aUmt twetd> five miles along tb * trail.

Over Twi'My Well Ksiublisln-d Ci�I-Iiei'ies in Albertii ami S41S- katehew an. Ottawa. Nov. 12.- If the develop -ment of the coal .t^uKtry is t and development 01 u regum. then western Canada Is making utmost unprecedented s-tritles. Mr. T. C. Denis, of the getdugicul survey, has just returned from u visit througli the priuciiml western coal fieWU of tlu uuiinlaud and he iv|>oets hut everywhere coal mining is going u- heud at a tremendous rate. It is only a very few years wince th-11 nl.v :oul mines worthy of the name. o,>;*r vling In Alterta were the I-*etlrfbt*dge iiul the Cunmore mines. Thes*' ha\i jxpamled into large enterprises, und many other similar ventures have sinco achieved success. Titer*1 are now In tho provinces of Alberta and Suskatchevun over twenty well ts tabl.sluKl and well equipped colleries IjesUles countless suuiller mineswhich are working spasmodically to supply local wants. Figures Kj>eak louder than words Tho records kept ly the mines sect ion of the geological survey shov that In 1887 Uks coal production o' the then Northwest Territories wai for that year 7*1.152 tons, valued .11 SI57,577. In M*05 the ftgures foi Vlliertu and Saskatchewan had attained l.OdO.OOO tons, representing a value of over $2,000,000. In other words, In eighteen years the production had increased about four -teen fold. Hut oven at a very grently increased rate of production, the cpieslion of exhaustion of tho fossil fuel is yet in a future exceedingly remote, foi 'it has lhH?n rulculated that the roa' bearing region of tho groat pbiir provinces, between the Internationa' boundary and the 5(ith parullel of latitude, has an area of over 05,000 square miles. In this vast expanse of couutrv a'' the different' grades of coal ur� n n ivs*ent(|uireiimntK. ami coals of supper ior qunlHv may \to found for ste.on-raisiug, black-smithing coke mauu fact ure and domestic uro. One of the features of the coal industry of Alberta in 1000 bus been the inauguration of new mvthods of mining in the Ldnujnton region. Heretofore the coal for the use of If* district was mined ly means of iunm*)s driven on the coal-seauis uhit h outcrops on the sUvp and higb bunks of the Saskatchewan; thi.- onI was then nhlpped by means of scows. Uut with the growth of the r�*^ion these, means were thought :imd.*tmate*>n sunk, lb* ihs*|K*st to 200 feet, which >)l greatly faciAtate ihe extraction,ami ih.� coal production '.s now readily? to keep pace with the rap.d growth of the region expected by the mo*t sanguine l-Mtuoutonlun.
