The of the highest quality and are in the best of condition. There are several silver fox skins, each valued at from to aud others ranging In value from ?500 to c-L.OOO. The catch of fox furs was larger than in former years. The oth- er skins are marten, mink, bear, of various kinds and musk- rat. Hlost of the furs are from the country north and east of Slave Lake and the Mackenzie river, aud from the Peace River district, and: "the north- ern portions of the provinces of Al- berta and British Columbia. Indians are the principal hunters at the northerly posts of the trading companies, although a number of white men are engaged in tho .busi- ness. The average catch for an ex- perienced trapper is valuetf at from to a season, though at time tiie hunter earns from two to three times -that- amount taking silver foxes, which are not .only rare, but also difficult to lure to the baited traps. The Chipewyan Indians, who are the chief hunters for th-e Hudson's Bay company, made their largest catches in the Great Slave Lafce dis- trict, where the country is as wild anil undeveloped as Nature left it centuries ago. There is u fascina- tion about the remote north, which in. sidlously works its way into the blood, nnd as a result the white men, who have lived there two or three seasons, find it, difficult to leave nnd live in restricted civilization altogether. At the present time the residents of (he far north travel about hi car roles or dog trains. There arc some horses and oxeii in the country, hut they are used for other purposes, Trapping and fishing are the chief occupations, though at and near the posts, south of the Arctic circle, the factors grow grains, grasses and veg- etables.
