N the summer of 1909, when gold wr
discovered in the Porcupine Lake ml
ing district of Canada, about 500 mil4
north of Toronto, the region was I
inaccessible and the conditions of III
were so hard that nothing except t'
lure of gold could have brought whil
men to the spot. Everywhere was
trackless, low-lying forest. Perhal
it would be more nearly accurate
say that everywhere was a gre
marsh filled with trees. In the wint
the temperature dropped to 60 degrees below zei
and the snow rose to the forest branches. In U,
summer there was a pest of insects. Poisonot
black flies-almost invisible because of their smal
ness-buzzed all the day. At night the black fli
laid off and the mosquitoes came on. There wi
never a summer hour, by day or night, when a h
man being could have lived at
peace; when his face would not
have been stinging; when his
swollen features would not have
made him grotesque.
But few had ever suffered, be
cause there were only a few to
suffer. Only an occasional trap
per ever penetrated the wilder
ness. The prospector had not
come, because the prospector, as
a rule, goes only where mountains
beckon. The prospector did not
know that mountains, like teeth,
may wear off until only their roots
remain. Nor did the prospector
know that, in the great dentistry
of nature, theme mountain roots
are sometimes filled with gold and
silver, nickel and iron.
Yet such is the fact. When the
world was young a mountain range
