It ls a canal llftlock. the only one of Its kind on the cnnent and bullt on such large proporttons that It Is now belng ranked nmong the engl neering wondera of the world. tor a nulnber of years a project has been un Ser way to connect Lake Huron and Lake Ontario. thus glvlng a dlrect route ot twn5ortatlon through the heart o On tario. A natural system of naUgame rivers and lakes provldes the bas ls for such a connectlon. maklng possible a s,"ort cut across the country of about two hundred mlles, a savlng of 250 mlles i as comparedwlth the prosent u te by ay ?00 mlles. about 20 mlles will be canals and when these are cotnple ed a through wnterway of the nrsi impuHauio .w -- Tdlan ThTpplng will be arforded by whlch to move Western wheat to the St. l-aw rence and the seaboard.

To overcome the successlve drops thus encountered, on elthe? slao? a series of locks has been Sons ructed. by whlch vessels change from one level to another. The largest of these locks at Peterboro, where a drop of 66 fcrt hasben overcome by the construc tlon of an Immense double hydraUc 11: Is the englneering wonder hero re ferred to. The Peterboro locks conslst of two watertlght steel boxes. ln h'onj'" s are ralsed or lowered from one reach !o the other.

COMMEMORATING HIS FIFTH ANNIVERSARY. Where thero's push there's buslncss. We use the word "push" advlsedly for lt ls oftcn a wrongfully perverted one. It doesn't mean merely hustllng ln any one partlcular dlrectlon, but rathcr a general actlvlty all along the flrlng llne. One couldn't enter the store of E. J. Fenton & Co., near the Amerlcan House and not be Impressed wlth the fact that here ls a concern started on the rlght track. There ls evidence of push and buslness prosperlty on every hand. And lt's not of the mushroom growth order clther. You can almost see tho pa tlent, porslstent effort on the part of the managcment, extendlng over a perlod of nve years. that has bullt up this blg bus lness. And there's somcthing more than a struggle to get trade on tho surface. There's a determlnatlon to kcep It. Mr. Fenton ls no stranger to the cloth lng trade In Brattleboro, havlng for a number of years been wlth Pratt, Wrlght &. Co., but lf you ask hlm ho'U probably say hls record beglns wlth the openlng of hls store, flve years ago this month. If he's a little enthuslastlc over hls success here you don't have to hunt for a reason. There are some things we can pardon In man and one ot them ls a consclousness of encrgles dlrected ln the rlght channels. None of Mr. Fenton's seem to have had even the least Incllnatlon to go astray. So as to commemorate the event of hls flve years ln buslness, he's nrranged for a blg Jubllee to start tomorrow ana con- tlnue tlll January 16. Ho'U celeDraie it In a manner characterlstlc of the man. Put a whole lot of enthuslasm Into lt and put good clothlng onto the backs of hls customers and a portion of hls proftts In to thelr pockets. He means to make hls Jubllee a hummer, and Is looklng more at the advertlslng feature of the event future sales than to Immedlate beneflts. It ls a hablt he has of followlng out hls well deflned buslness pollcy glvlng more than the money's worth. In addltlon to maklng special low prices durlng the Jubllee to further commemo rate the event of belng flve years In busl ness, he Is golng to glve away several hundred dollars In prlzes and money, In cludlng a beautiful J350 Estey plano. set of dlshes, sllver tea set. gold watch, suit of clothes, a lamp. suit caso, umbrella, shoes. ten dollar gold plece and all the money contalned ln a glass case In thelr wlndow. These prlzes will he glven to the oncs who glve the nearest estlmate to the number of rennles ln the case. Full par- ttculars of this event are glven clsewhere In our columns today.
