It is said that two thirds of the

the legislative assemblies both
French and Euglish are heard; the
former oftener than the latter. All
public documents also are printed
in both languages and iu the courts
pleas are made in either tongue, the
lawyers as a rule using both with
equal readiness. It is significant
too that though the criminal law of
Canada is English, and uniform, all
over the Dominion, the civil code
of the Province of Quebec is still
the old civil law of France.

France is the perpetuation of

The crookedness of the streets
reminds one of Boston, for you feel
in bith plac-s that you are never

The houses bordering tbe narrow
streets are dingy anl dilapidated
but are occasionally brightened by
pots of bright colored flowers from

In going from Lower to Uppe:
Quebec, three ways are used princi
pally. Tne famous flight of Break
Neck stairs is tbe most direct, but
perhaps the least desirable. The
eas er is the elevator, recently con
siructed; the most frequented thor
oughfaie is the ircuitous one of
Monntiin Hill. It winds around
so th-it. although the grade is very
teep, it is possible for horses to pull
heavy 1 tads. Coming down the hill
drivers often let the wheels run
against the pavement to check the
vehicle. One of the hrst tnmgs in

CITADEL AND THE PLAINS OF
The Citadel is located on the sum
mit of the plateau on which Quebec
is situated some three hundred feet
above the St. Lawrence river. The
view from here is one of the grand
est I have ever seen. Below you are
the two towns, Upper and Lower
Quebec. At the foot is the fet. Law

tions. The St. Charles nvir comes

the St. Lawrence. .across .u

as well as Quebec, which i cousid
ered the strougest fortified cay on
the American continent. JJrom tlie
citadel projects the .famous wall of
old Quebec which at one time en
veloped the city. Ii.e wall is now
State ot preservation, oe:ng
maintained as a relic of tbe past.
The t'tal length of this wall is
about three miles and it varies in
height from the level of the ground,
where the cliffs afford natural pro
tection, to 10 or IX teet anu in
thickness from 2 to 5 feet. We
were shown over the grounds of the
citadel, which comprises 16 acres, by
a guide who came from England
and who is now a member of the Ca
nadian army. It might be of interest
to say nere tnat tne last mitisn sol
diery was removed from Canada
last spring ana tne uominion now
maintains its own military force.
This officer showed us around point
ing out numerous relics, one of
which was a small brass cmon cap
tuied at the battle of Bunker Hill.
Back of the citadel are the Plains
of Abraham, the battlefield on which
Wolfe and Montcalm fell in 1759
General Wolfe fell dead on the field
and Montcalm, the French general
was mortally wounded, carried down
into Quebec and died in a short
time. A monument has been erect

DUFFERIN TERRACE ANb THE CHA
Two of the places that visitors
always expect to see when they go
to Uuebec are tne uunenn ierrace
and the Chateau Frontenac. A wall
Caleche, Popular Vehicle in Quebec
coming down from the citadel ex
tends along the top of a promontory
to a point near the road way be
tween Upper and Lower towns. In
side of this, extending inward from
the top of the wall is a wide public
promenade with handsome railings,
known as Dufferin Terrace. The
walk is made of plank and is 300
feet wide, 1800 feet long and 250
feet above the St. Lawrence.
It is the only promenade in the
city.' Consequently every evening
hundreds of people come here to
pass the time. Bands play and
people have a good time generally.
The Champlain Monument is atone
end of the Terrace. Just behind
it is located the Chateau Frontenac,
a magnficent hotel owned and oper
ated by the Canadian Pacfic Kail
way Company. No trip to Quebec
is complete without a visit to the
Chateau Frontenac and an evening
on tbe famous Dufferin Terrace,
which is the pride of all Quebec.
CHURCHES, MONUMENTS, GATES AND
PLACES OF INTEREST.
One of tbe best ways to see Queb
ec is to drive over the city so a
party of four of us got a carriage
and asked for a driver who could
speak English, and started out one
afternoon. It is no trouble to get
a conveyance for you see them
standing around and the hackmen
yell out "carriage" to you on almost
every corner. The regular price is
$1.00 per hour, this of course ex

MRS. CURTIS LECTURES.
targe Crowds Attend, Three Meeting
Held in Asheboro Good Collection
for the Cauaa of Temperance.
Mrs. Nannie Curtis delivered
three interesting lectuies in the Pres
byteiian church here the first, Sat
urday night, another Sunday after
noon, and a third Sunday night.
The house was well filled at each
hour and the speaker held the at
tention of hearers as few lecturers
can. As a speaker Mrs. Curtis has
rare power, impressing her audiences
with deep emotion and sympathy
for toe cause of temperance which
she esponses, and as quickly relieves
the intensity with a flight of humor,
but seldom is the lesson intended
She presents the evil of intemper
ance and morality in all its horror,
and the effect of the work she is
accomplishing in this tour of the
state will be felt far into the future.
Her argument is most convincing.
She has made many friends in
Asheboro. both for herself and the
cause she so ably defends. During
her stay in Asheboro more than
$90 was contributed to the work
of temporance in the state, and a
good contribution was made to car
ry on the work she is doing in
traveling from place to place deliv
ering these lectures.
