THIS is the first time that I have ever written a sporting story, but I have read all sorts and conditions, from a possum hunt in the southern States to a speckled trout tale that originated on the weeded shores of Lake Nipegon; and I have an idea that I know how the thing should be done; consequently, I will endeavor to give you a plain, unvarnished account of a thrilling moose hunt that I participated in last October. 1 also wish you to bear in mind that this was not a meeting of “sports" to indulge in all-night poker in the backwoods under the pretext of shooting big game.By HOY CRANSTON18 min

THIS is an age in which the question of national defence has become paramount and of vital moment. No longer can it be pushed aside to make room for parochial matters, and amid this increased attention it would be strange if the women of Britain failed to interest themselves in the means by which our homes are to be defended.By Frederic W.

IN THE gradual multiplication of her industries, Canada has at last reached the point where she can boast of possessing the most modern gun factory in America, and where it will be possible for her to say that Made-in-Canada guns can now be procured as good as the best.By R. P. Chester6 min
