A MID the wild winter beauty of M urray Bay
stands a vast chateau. F rom its great
chimneys blue smoke rises straight into the still,
clear air. An army of blue-green pines, snow
laden, marches up the sweep of mountain background. And this is the picture which greets those
merry CCvoyaguers" who will make the MAN OIR
RICHELI EU their headquarters for winter sport.
Here sumptuous comfort prev ails. Birch logs
crackle their happy song. Around the hearth
gather groups of fashionable folk, in colourful
outdoor dress. There is a touch of that old
Seigneurial grandeur of other days - as though
Richelieu himself might be your host.
Why not gather a few of your most intimate
friends - those who can ride the flying ski or
steer the racing bobsled-and en train for this

grand scale will be your reward.

and JACK FORBES for their famous SOO-mile Ski Marathon from
Timmins to Toronto last year.
Read what these experts have to say about their " PETERBOROUGH"
Skis which were supplied from regular stock without any particular
attention to selection.
The Peterborough Canoe Co.,
Peterborough , Ont o
Toronto , February 20 , 1929.
Dear Sirs :You being in the ski manufacturing business are no doubt aware of the
fact that we have completed the SOO-mile Ski Marathon from Timmins , Northern
Ontario, to Toronto City Hall.
I want to mention that my skis also those of my partner Jack Forbes were
made in your factory, one pair being hickory and the other ash. Both pair were
your semi-racing model.
These skis were subjected to the hardest usage , on icy highways, cindery
railroad tracks and sanded hills. They have outworn three sets of harness and
in my opinion could wear out a dozen more. The mileage covered is about equal
to that made in from five to seven years by the average skier.
The trip was done in an effort to popularize ski-ing as t he clean healthy
outdoor winter sport which it is and I sincerely trust that through this hike we can
get everybody on skis .
If this letter will be of any use to you in advertising, you may use it, as a
well-made product should be well recommended.
Sincerely yours ,
Signed : KEN ELM T . HULME.
