BACUEWAUNA BAY, ONT.
A cUscriBtlon of oa of S. F. Tolama'a
stations aud iinrroundinrs about 45
north of the "Soo" may not prore uniu
terstinsr to the readers of the Tribune.
Y are situated about one and one-half
milei from Cor bay point Liuht house,
and have an ex?cll(,nt harbor rrall pro
tected from the ea. la the fall large
tiirouch line boats seek safety herefrom
lid etornii. On. our arriral here we
nd a few white tettltrs, the liht
r and about a dozen Indian fami
ne have about 45 men flshiujr at
mu of them have their f ami-
: iie wnn them and have built for tliom
y selves loz kuts, go we can claim quite a
' yettlement. We occupy the buildings
J'ormerlT owned by a Lumber Co., opera-
. tinjr here 8 or 9 years ago, mill was
burned at that timo. Wo Iiavo a small
store and do considerable trading with
fishermen and Indians, there is also a
food slab dock with about 20 feet depth
.y-1 water in front of it.
Music, games and keeping up sinHdjrea
occupy most of tiie leisure time of the
mm. There are several accordions and
violins etc., here which aro brought
out every evening and form sort of aside
show to the different games Roing on.
Games consist of everything, from "Old
bow" up to base ball. They never seem
to tire of them, though when playing
ball they are bothered by mustjuitoes as
they often mistake a large one for the
ball and try to knock it out. the catcher
tries to catch it and when the ball come
along he gels struck unawaros, which is
somewhat aggravating until tliey get
used to ft. When we get a breezo the
muequitoes and Hies leave our clearing
and take to the woods to reeovcr for the
aextealm spell. Across the bay, North
and East of ua, extends a ridjo of moun
tains they are 10 to 30 miles away from
us but eeem much nearer. Minerals of
different kinds aro found in them, gold,
silver, lead, copper etc. We were shown
some gojd, silver aad lead specimens by
a prospector who has been among the
.mountains for the past seven years, he
has a number of mines but none of them
worked yet. An iron mine was worked
ftpm e 22 years ago over there, but for
v.. seme reason was abandoned after run
ning a couple of years. Copper mines
were opened at different places 12 to 20
years ago, also, but not worked very long.
Large game euuh as bear, caribou, etc,
are found among the mountains and in
the valleys beaver etc. are found. Sev
eral large streams empty Into the bay
and are wellstoeked with brook' trout.
About half a mile up one of the rivers
there is a large water fall, the Indians
say that it is the best fishing place for
trout around here, but black Hies and
musquitoes form a sort of barrier at
present to any of the streams. Speckled
treat are also caught in the bay, they
hays been ea tight frennently from the
shore and dock here. We have at least
one advantage over the city, we can have
fish on the table all ready to eat in
about twenty miuutes after they hare
topped flopping. K.

PleasB give sjnu-i in your paper for
these few lines: Seeing that the rumor
of the loss of iho prop. A. C. Van Raalte
with only one lift saved created such a
feeling that I wish to state that there
was uo cause for such a report whatever,
as the boat proves herself to be perfectly
saaworthy iu every respect. We make
our trips as regular as any railroad
train, and as we feel it is an attack on
the boat nni mysolf by sonre one seek
ing to injure tho Van Raalte and who
has always bson rrady to defame the
seaworthyne8s and M'.ir.ilness of this
boat, that it must be their object to send
sucli reports arcuud to make it appear
that their former lies were the truth, in
trying to make out that wo have trouble
with the boat, which is not the case, for
she is perfectly tight, safe and sound
and we are doing a fair business.

Township and its resources may be of
some interest to your readers also its
adaptlbility for farming purposes.
The territory now known as the town
ship of Hebron was organized as such
by the Board of Supervisors in the win

what taken as a whole may be classed
as as good land as nny in this county,
Spring wheat, oats, peas, clover, turnips,
rye and other crops suitable to this lat
itude do well here, corn of the early va
rieties generally ripen, also beans, the
soil in most of the towuship is a strong
sandy loam which can be worked as
soon as the snow is off.

good vacant land yet at low prices.
