Snow does not fall on the prairies to an average greater depth than 18 inches and buffaloes and horses graze out 'of doors all winter.

The summary, of the whole seems to be that the. Climate of Manitoba is undoubtedly very healthy that the soil gives very large products that the great drawback is the visitation of grasshoppers, which are common to it and the state of Minnesota and others of the North Wes tern States.

The whole of the north-west Territory of the Dominion comprises an area of about square miles and British Columbia square miles. Altogether the Dominion of Canada comprises a terri tory about the size of the whole continent of Europe 5 and nearly half a million square miles larger than the United States, without Alaska.

Until the completion Of the Canadian Railway system, the best way for emigrants to reach Manitoba, from the old Provinces of Canada, is. Via Lakes Huron and Superior to Duluth; thence by the Northern Pacific Railway to the Red River and thence by direct steamboat communication to Winnipeg. There are regular lines of boats from Sarnia and Collingwood, which are reached respectively from Toronto by the Grand Trunk and Northern Railways. Favorable fares are afforded to emigrants, and the time between Toronto and Winnipeg is about seven days.

It maybe further stated that the immense water system of the inte rior of the continent, west of, Winnipeg, is being Opened up by steamboat navigation to the base of the Rocky Mountains.
