Some Facts About Three of Them That May Be
Seen in Manitoba and Ontario —Ancient
Establishments in a New Country Once
Owned by "The Great Company."
In western Canada one meets the Hud-
Bon's Bay company at every turn. In the
streets of busy cities, on the rivers of
the wilderness, fix the talk of the busi
ness man and the Indian the name of the
great company constantly recurs. This is
not surprising, when it is recalled that
for 250 years it has been powerful in
Canada, that during most of that time it
was the government of Prince Rupert's
Land—practically all of Canada outside
the eastern provinces—and that In the

remote places to-day it is the embodi
ment to the savage mind of law and trade
and civilization. Little did Groseilliers
and Radisson, rebuffed in their own
France, know, when they turned to Eng
land to organize a fur trading company,
in 1667, that such a great commercial
enterprise would rise on the foundation of
their discoveries.
At first keeping its posts on or near
the great bay from which it takes its
came the company in a later era of en
terprise extended its operations to the
south, met the Northwest Pur Company,
of Montreal and Quebec, in deadly conflict
and finally absorbed it.
Still later, changing with changing con
ditions, its trading posts have been suc
ceeded wherever the fur trade is a thing
of the past by modern stores which in
such a city as Winnipeg rtse to the dig
nity of thoroughly up-to-date department
In the old days all the company's sup
plies for Canada were distributed from
Hudson's Bay, being carried up the Nel
son river to Lake Winnipeg, and thence
south, east and west. . Later as it came
into competition with the Northwest Pur
company it brought part of its supplies up
the great lakes and carried them by ca
noe and portage to the rivers and lakes
of the Hudson's Bay watershed. Still
later many of its supplies came in by way
of St. Paul, the Red River cart and the
Red river. The building of the Canadian
Pacific railroad has changed the method
of transportation, though the posts around
Hudson's Bay are still supplied directly by
sailing vessels sent out from England.
The traveler who does not go far from
the easier transportation routes In Mani
toba and western Ontario can scarcely
fail to hear something of old Ft. Garry
in Winnipeg; Ft. Frances, on Rainy river
and Ft. William, from which the town \s
Ft. Garry, which was the center of some
moving scenes in the days of the first
Riel rebellion and the republic of the
Metis, was long since dismantled, only a
portion of the entrance remaining. The
land on which it stands has been given
by the company to the city of Winnipeg
and it will be preserved as a most inter
esting landmark and historic ruin.
Historic Ft. Frances.
Ft. Frances was only recently discon
tinued as a trading post and the old pal
isades, held in place by wooden pegs, are
not yet quite rotted away. There has been
a trading posit at or near where it now
stands for more than a century. It was
an important post of the Northwest Pur
company so long ago as 1784, and Its pres
ent name dates from the period of the
union of 'the two companies, about 1828,
when it was given in honor of Lady
Prances Simpson, wife of the head of the
company at that time. There are ruins
of an old flour trill, near the present
store, which was erected not less- than a
hundred years ago Back from the river,
across the long since dried up stream
that once turned the wheels cff the mill,
is the old burying ground, ell unmarked,
where the retainers of the fur companies
have be&n buried for thire^ or four genera
Forgotten Grave*.
The graves are shallow and the first
warning one may have of proximity to an
old grave is when one's . foot crushes
through into the mouldering coffin. Until
recently there were some wooden grave
markers with Latin inscriptions, over
which towered c roughly made cross. But
two years ago the wife of the th.en agent
of the company, was a nervous woman
who could not stand the sight of the omin
ous objects, and her husband had them
torn down and burned without keeping a
record of the inscriptions; though among
the graves were those of the last factor
of the Northwest Fur company, his wife
and three children, all of whom died of
typhoid fever. Still beyond the graves
ther now stands a dense and) heavy forest
on land where wheat was grown six>ty-nve
years ago.
Quaint Buildings.
The present buildings are the store
proper, a storehouse and the residence.
They are not more than thirty years old,
but are built in qua'.nt style. The door
of the residence was made in England and
was brought to Ft. Frances from York
Factory on Hudson's Bay, having been
laboriously carried in oanoes and on pack
ers' backs all that distance. It has an
artistic setting and a dear old-fashioned
knocker. .
The store does a large general business,
its trade having quadrupled in the last
year, and although, it is no longer a trad
ing post only, it still receives many pelts
of various kinds, including those of th©
black fox and the beaver.
This mention of pelts recalls to mind
the significant motto of the old company
"'Pro Pelle Cutem."
Two miles below the present trading
place may be seen an excavation which
marks the place where once stood the
Northwest company's post.
There is a quaint old hotel in Ft. Fran
cis, built of hand-sawed boards, that was
erected in 1870, at the time the Wolseley
expedition passed through en route to
the scene of the Riel rebellion.
La. Veranderaye'a Camp.
Another place of interest is the site of
la Varanderaye's fort, wher the famous
explorer wintered in 1731-2 on his way to
the mysterious unknown west. The fort
is on the arm of land known as Pitcher's
Point, at the foot of Rainy lake. On the
one side of this narrow strip beat the
waves of Rainy lake, on the other are
the currents of Rainy river, which widens
outg reatly just after leaving the lake.
With water on three sides of him and
only a narrow strip of land to watch,
Veranderaye doubtless felt fairly safe.
He had with him a number of Jesuit
priests and the remains of their altar may
still be seen, as also of the forge, a cel
lar and some earthworks.
Ft. William. •
When the Kaministiquia river super
seded Pigeon river as the eastern part of
the iur trade route from Lake of the
Woods to Lake Superior and Grand Port
age in Minnesota gave way to Ft. William
as the place of debarkation, the latter
became a very important point, and a
considerable Indian settlement grew up
around it. Nothing now remains of the
old fort save a stone blockhouse which
is used by the Canadian Pacific railroad
as an oil storage house. But the Indian
settlement now known as the mission, on
account of a Jesuit mission which was es
tablished there in 1849 and hes been kept
up ever since, still sleeps peacefully on
the other side of the river under tower
ing Mt. McKay. The 250 Indians that
live here are about as civilized and in
dustrious as the redman gets to be. Kind,
wise Father Baudin, who looks after their
spiritual welfare, says that his Indians
have learned to work hard, to live in
. houses, to earn their way, to get along
well in all save the matter of saving.
That is hard for them to learn.

These May Be as Common as the
Seedless Oranges.
New York Journal.
Seedless fruit, thornless roses, shell
less nuts, these luxuries will be common
in a few years if predictions are verified.
The methods of growing fruits, nuts and
vegetables are undergoing a revolution. It
is believed that even the cores and skins
can be practically done away with. By
saving the strength of the plant used up
in this way, the fruit will be grown larger
and with a finer flavor.
The seedless orange is so far the most
successful of the fruits experimented
on. It is the result of years of cultiva

seeds, was first grafted on the common

orange. The result was an orange with
smaller and fewer seeds than, any in the
market. The experiment was repeated
over and over again until the present vari
ety of absolutely seedless oranges could be
grown. As the seeds grew smaller, the
orange itself grew larger, sweeter and
more juicy.
Apples and pears have grown with
