King Edward's Country Editors Visit Principal Canadian Cities Toron
........ to, Beautiful City Wenderful Niagara Falls.
As I said i in my last article, our 1
train of eight pnllman cars and one
baggage coach was , made .. up , m
Detroit for the trip through. Cana
da. We left about ten o'clock over
the Canadian Pacific railway; cross
ed the Detroit river on a ferry and
entered Canada at Windscr, from
there we went to Toronto arriving
in time for an early breakfiist.
Most of the party were np earlier
than usual looking for. strange
sights in our neighbor on the north.
Harvesting had just begun and in
some parts of Canada the whoat
and oats were green and this was
then the last of June. The coun
try seemed rich from an agricultur
al stand point and the forests were
full of fine timber. So much . mere
land is in cultivation along the
railroads than in our part of the
country, and from the car windows
one could gaze for miles and milns.
TOHOXTO A CITY ; WITH MANY
NAMES "THE QUEEN CITY"
"XOC CITY ""CITY OF

Toronto like ,imahy of the, cities
we visited was rich in names. It'is
beautifully located' on; the. north
shfre of Lake Ontario, I and derived
its name "The Queen City'' from its
admirable' 'location.:''.' It is a city
where' tourists delight to go, hence
it is called the "Tourist's city 'and
as it ' has more than two hundred
houses of worship iV'il called ;the"

One street crossing in Toronto is a
peculiar 1 situation, on one corner
lives the Governor of Outario, on
another a college, on another a
church aud ou the fourth a hotel
or saloon. It is said that this is
the point in the city where there
can be found legislation, education,
salvation and damnation. His Wor

the portion of the party who remain

of the day in Toionto or trip to
