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 . . , CHTRCHE3." 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" '.'.

We were told that on clear days the spray of Niagara could be seen. At 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 ship, the mayor, The Commercial Club ' and the citizens entertained the portion of the party who remain ed in Toronto. Choice was given of the day in Toionto or trip to Niagara Falls. More than half the party chose the latter and left at eleven o'clock for the., fckrXfEST SCENIC WONDER NIAGA-"t-'SA. FALLS. ' The trip from Tronto across Lake Ontario, - was - yert pleasant.
