OTTAWA RIVER—The Ottawa River, from its source at Lake Capemechigama, is 780 miles long, to its mouth at the lower end of the Island of Montreal. From Lake Eshwaham, from which one of its branches takes its origin, the river is over 800 miles to its mouth. This river and its tributary waters drain an area of no less than 60,180 square miles, of which 40,324 are in the Province of Quebec. The entire country north of the Ottawa is one of lakes. In a tract 60 miles broad and 250 miles long, stretching through the interior of the country, from Lake Temiskaming to Lake Spain, in Berthier County, are the following amongst other great bodies of water: Lake Kipawa, Grand Lac, Lake Victoria and Lake Kekabonga. The Canadian Pacific Ry. follows the river for hundreds of miles.
