The Canadian Magazine, Vol. 27 free pdf Excerpt from The Canadian Magazine, Vol. 27: Of Politics, Science, Art and Literature To the many thousands of tourists, visitors, "old boys" of Rice Lake and the winding Otonabee River, scattered over the broad Dominion and the busy Republic to the south, the ice-clad lake, snow-powdered islands, and dry, rustling, flag-bordered river sends greeting. Look at these old familiar scenes under Winter's glittering health-giving touch. "Our Lady of the Snows" is only a pleasant joke. Here half the season has passed with weather so mild and genial that sleighing is almost unknown. Great fires gleam forth at dark, surrounded by merry skaters, on the very spots where summer visitors drag out the plunging bass or struggling maskinonge. Under the bright December sun the redmen, the Mississaugas, dash along on ringing skates, gun in hand, baying hounds ahead pursuing the wily fox over the very spots where many of us have decoyed the wary webfoot. The wild-rice beds are a tangled mass, fallen in or standing up in the shining ice- beneath, the Ke-nojah, the Indians poetic name for the big, hard-fighting maskinonge, still pursue the darting minnow. If you want unusual excitement, get one of these sons of the forest to take you with him when he cuts the ice-hole, erects the arch, covers your head with a heavy robe, and bids you watch in the dim light below for the great fish to pass- or stand alongside and watch him patiently waiting beside the ice-hole for the big-mouth bass to bite. On the wooded shores of lake and river the young bucks trap for mink and coon, weasel and fox, with all the ingenious woodcraft Nature gave them. Ruffled grouse still spring from the cedars and the swift rabbits dash away along the swamp runways- the muskrats swim about beneath the ice through all the great drowned lands, along the paths they so laboriously kept open all the summer and fall. Cold, clear, bracing, healthy weather, Our "Lady of the Snows" is a beneficent goddess. This part of the Trent Valley Canal is a scene of great natural beauty. Starting at the busy city of Peterborough, after examining one of the wonders of the new world, the Lift Locks, there is a mighty region, the Kawartha Lake district, to the north, yet to be fully settled. Below Peterborough, taking one of the daily steamers. Rice Lake is reached in three hours. The Otonabee is a charming sight in April- until then the ice has bound it. One bright morning there is a tiny ribbon of blue water sparkling in the sun at its lake mouth- no sooner is this opened than Nature displays one of her greatest wonders. Stand on the shore at Jubilee Point as the sun rises this morning and look towards the south- far off over the distant hill-tops the telescope finds a faint black dot, a wavering, pencilled line, the first incoming ducks, the heralds of the great migration. What power implanted in their breasts the knowledge that this tiny ripple of water was open in all this ice-bound scene?
