RATER LAKE National park has
been termed by many the eighth
wonder of the world. Nestling
in the heart of a great moun-
tain which, in ages past, was a
living volcano, 6,000 feet above the
sea, with its sapphire surface unruf-
fled, reflecting the many-hued surfaces
of the 1,000 feet high crater walls
which surrounded it, it is undoubtedly
one of the most exquisite gems of
color to be found in the world. Its
blue surpasses the blue of the Bay of
Naples in richness and intensity and
its somewhat weird surroundings,
pregnant with mystery and solitude,
are in perfect harmony with the placid
j repose of its surface.
There are glaciers in many coun-
tries. high peaks, water falls, cascades,

Successful Crops and Big Yields
Help the Railway.
The remarkable fields that are re-
ported of the wheat crop of Western
Canada for 1915 bear out the esti-
mate of an average yield over the
three western provinces of upward of
25 bushels per acre. There is no
portion of that great west of 24,000
square miles in which the crop was
not good and the yields abundant. An
! American farmer who was Induced to
place under cultivation land that he
had been holding for five years for
| speculative purposes and higher
prices, says that he made the price ot
the land out of this year's crop of
oats. No doubt, others, too, who took
the advice of the Department of the
Interior to cultivate the unoccupied
land, have done as well.
But the story of the great crop that
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta
produced this year is best told in the
language of the railways In the added
cars that it has been necessary to
place in commission, the extra trains
required to be run, the Increased ton-
nage of the grain steamers.
It is found that railway earnings
continue to improve.
The C. P. R. earnings for the second
i week of October showed an increase
of $762,000 over last year, the total
being only $310,000 below the gross
earnings of the corresponding week
of 1913, when the Western wheat crop
made a new record for that date. The
increase in C. P. R. earnings for the
corresponding week of that year was
only $351,000, or less than half of the
increase reported this year. The
which, at this latitude is covered with
snows for many months of the year; |
it is however, the moat practicable
place at which to locate the govern
ment headquarters and to establish
a small village consisting of a few
stores and supply stations. It is not,
however, at the rim of the crater and
therefore could never, under any cir-
cumstances, be a place where tourists
would be content to stay, for there Is .
ever the mountain top with the lake , *raln movement in the West within
beyond beckoning the traveler to the j 'he past two weeks has taxed the re-
goal of his pilgrimage.
The establishment of the village on
the rim of the crater overlooking the
lake would be ideal, but In certain sea-
sons the snows are so late in melting
that tourists might never reach the vil-
Bources of the Canadian roads as
never before, despite their Increased
facilities. The C. P. R. is handling 2,000
cars per day, a new record. The
G. T. R. and the C. N. R. are also mak-
ing new shipment records. The other

solution, therefore, appears to be a ada Steamships Company, the largest
double village or two stations, one at freighter of the Canadian fleet on the
the lower level, which opens several ; Upper Lakes, brought down a cargo of
weeks before the upper levels, and one
at the rim of the crater. By this
means tourists may arrive at the lower
station, where accommodations may
be found, and proceed to the rim of
the crater by foot when the road Is
not passable for vehicular traffic. At
the rim of the crater should be estab
llshed a secondary village in which
sleeping and eating accommodations
are provided, together with stores and
studios which might supply the wants
of the tourists.
Sailing and Fishing on the Lake.
The desire of the tourist upon arriv-
ing at Crater Lake National park iB to
reach the rim of the crater at the :
earliest time. Once there, his all-con- i
suming desire is to descend to the
surface of the lake and to sail upon
476,315 buBhels, a new record for
Canadian shipping. Records are "go-
ing by the board" in all directions this
fall, due to Canada's record crop. The
largest Canadian wheat movement
through the port of Ndw York ever
known is reported for the period up
to October 15th, when since shipments
of the new crop began in August,
4,265,791 bushels have been reloaded
for England, France and Italy. This
is over half as much as was shipped
of American wheat from the same port
in the same period. And, be it remem-
bered, Montreal, not New York, Is the
main export gateway for Canadian
wheat. New York gets the overflow

The park is traversed by roads from
the west and from the south and the
approaches are along easy gradients
and through wonderful forests and
alongside beautiful canyons, but upon
a closer approach to the ascent to the
rim of the crater, the difficulty of
reaching the lake becomes more and
more serious, and the problems In-
volved In establishing proper accom-
modations for the tourists and main-
taining them throughout the season
becomes more and more complex.

cated several miles from the rim of
