A Canadian child's ABC, Page 50



THE best thing on the old-fashioned maps

Of Canada was those great gaps Marked ‘‘Unexplored’

You felt you could Fill them up any way you would—

With herds of charging buffalo,

With Indian and Eskimo,

With teepee, dogsled and igloo,

With grizzly bears and caribou.

But since the railways have got there,

The maps are not so nice and bare.
