As Mr. Jordan was on hia way to the train on the Kippewa branch line in the early morning Thursday, he noticed a . trio ol sportsmen abroad in the dawn on the Quebec r,ide of the boundary, whore the sea-son for. big game is still open. Tliey were the Hon. James Whipple, chief pame warden of the Stnto, ond Mr. W. E. Johnston whose fame rivaU that of Pro.sident Roosevelt as one of the big game hunters of Ameri-co.

Tlie passengers soon got thoroughly interested ini what looked ed like a terribly grim and serious conteiit of speed between the train locomotive, the moose and the cariboo. The engine was puffing away and rolling out. black clouds-of smoke. The moose would from time to time heave his' niiifesive head and neck, antlers spri^dd like palm branches and pointed i^nd the cariboo with apitlers hardly of lc�� dimensions, but shaped like a bow bent in the direction of the neck, and plentifully ispiked, was .swinging gracefully. When the station ^pf Deux Rivieres was reached it was thought the race would end, but no; even \yhen the atiimols might apparently have got ahead ao the train slowed up they seemed to think it was unsportsmanlike to sneak away. They plunged boldly into the two rivers and swam across both, gaining the opposite shore as the train was still on the bridge. On swept the train and on rushed the fleet-footed animals. It was just after 10.30 a.m. when the matchless contest began. For more than two hours it was kept up The cariboo was the first to give out, BSdsct, Rockcliffe, Mackay. Moor-lake, Bass Lake and Wylie had been passed. Rivers ond Creeks had been dauntlessly .swum-Gordon Creek Green Creek, and Abimica Creek-each time the racing animals came out refreshed. Until the very last the passengers seemed to enjoy the sport as they would a horse race and as something better than a box ing contest. It was near Chalk River when the moose too, dropped away sinking down exhausted in a red pine clumj). He had raced not far .short of seventy miles, and seemed to be thinking of a short cut over the country to Kippewa as his head turned westward.

Ottawa, Nov, 26.-Mr: li'itKloHck 3. Lnwrencoi ^'�Jt.W.a-"> of Fort Vormll-ion, I*oaco niver distclct, and wall known in western circles aa a pionoor and explorer, is In tho city and spokn interestingly todjvj' about tho "last grout west." Mr. Lawrence has travclletl hu�idr reds of miles on tourii uf exploration into.the intorlur and has had ample opportunity to famillartzo hinisell with conditions both In Western Canada and in the Unlte-cned in the whole district before tho earliest frost and averaged No. 1 Northam. VEGETABLES AND FltUIT In addition to tho wheat, vegetables and fruit have been successfully raised for many years. Tender varieties of vegetables such as squash, pumpkins, cuctimbers and tomatoes have been repeatedly matured in tho open garden with tho ordinary methods of cultivation. All kinds ot small fruits, such as strawberries, raspberries and currants arc raised in abundance, and last year apples were reared ns far north as Lesser Slave Lake. A ntimber o! niiplo nnd plum trees of the hardier kinds are being experimcutetl with at the station at Fort Vermilion nnd give promise of doing well. In all probability the next four or five years will almost sovolutionize this district. Tho C.P.R., G.T.P. and Canadian Northern all have their eyes turned toward the. vast northern country, and thin enormous district, which includes ns much agricultural land as is settled west of Winniiieg, will be turned from a howling wilderness into one of tho richest and most progressive agricultural regions of tho Dominion. Owing tq tho present difllcultlos of transportation and a limited market, Mr, Lawrence, although having abso-luto faith in the future of this country, deemed it advisable not to pour settlers in until after the railroads wero operating. Slock raising has proved profitable and winter out without fodder.
