Champlain was soon recalled, as the

his place was sent out the Great White
i'ather of the Indians, Frontenac.
He seemed to have a magic power
over them and was worshiped as the
great White Father from across the

In the fourteenth century Jacques
Cartier, a native of France and an ex-
plorer, received permission to organ-,
i .e an expedition for the purpose of
exploring the undiscovered seas.
His real ambition was to discover a
western route to Cathay, but on St.
Lawrence's Day he sailed up the broad
mouth of the gulf of St. Lawrence ant
proclaimed the land for his king. He
pursued his way further up the gulf,
which stretched into the St. Lawrence
river, and here he discovered the two
n(ian villages of Stadacona and Ho-
chelaga, known to us today as the
cities of Quebec and Montreal.
He made friends with the Indians,
but returned home. He told the peo-
ple back in France about this great
country and interested the king so
that he decided to colonize it. For this
purpose immigration was favored and
missionaries were sent out to civilize
and convert the Indians. The people
of France were not very much inter-
ested in the new country, but the mer-
chants recognized the value of the fur
trade and came in large numbers.
The main settlements were in the
province of Quebec at and about the
cities of Montreal and Quebec. In
1600 the king of France decided to
further interest in this new colony
and for this purpose he sent out as
his representative Champlain. Cham-
plain was the head of what was ,called
the Company of The One Hundred
Associates, and their mission was to

Bishop and the Intendant, so was re-
called, but he had not been back in
France long before the terrible mas-
sacre of the Lachine took place and
he again came to Canada.
The English, who had settled to the
south and east of the Allegbanies, took
advantage of these quarrels and as
France and England were continually
at war on the continent, there was
commenced here in this country a bor-
der warfare. This continued, with the
Iroquois Indians favoring the Eng-
lish, and the Hur s and Algonquins
on the side of the rench.
When peace was finally declared be-
tween France and England the new
colony was given a chance to grow
and French immigrants started com-
ing out by the boat loads. The colony
reached a high state of prosperity,
when again hostilities broke out in
Europe, in what is known as The
Thirty Years' War. This meant a re-
sumption of the border warfare, with
varying success on both sides. Eng-
land could not give much assistance
to her colonists who were struggling
with the French to the west of the Al-
leghanies and in Canada. When as-
sistance finally arrived the French
lost Duquesne and Montreal.
It was impossible to dislodge the
great French general, Montcalm, how-
ever, who was strongly intrenched at
Quebec, the second strongest fortress
in the world.
General Wolfe by perseverance and
istrategy succeeded in reaching the
Plains of Abraham and in a decisive
battle, in which both generals lost
their lives the flag of France was tak-
en down from the citadel of Quebec
to be replaced by that of England.

Day by day, during the six days and IP:d
which the recent Irish rebellion last- O dl
ed, Mr. Stephens recorded his impres- '
sion of the events which crowded very poW
around him. In the simple narrative ghim e
which he presents, is contained the ibin s n
pitiful history of that revolt. In it comm:_i
are all the bewilderment and the curl- which M
eus distorted sense of quiet in the a tor the
midst of turmoil which accompanies a -o at ite
quickly descending catastrophe such h I. Ow:
as" the Irish revolt. The humorous urtati-n
becomes curiously mixed with the ' m i
tragic. In the bombardment of th

particularly noticeable. With umbrel-r rs o

Sheepshead Bay six different fuel tests
were made at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60
miles an hour. In these cases the
least gasoline was consumed when the
car was traveling at 20 miles an hour,
which was about half of that burned
when the car was going at 60 milesj
an hour.

Those present at the trials in addi-
tion to Professors Fishleigh and Gal-
