But when I come to Cai-dston, another of the Mormon settlements,the hurrying pencil waits to take breath as it were, and sharpen itself to fresh efTorts. Indeed, the pencil has said to me, all along, "What will you do when you come to Cardston and after it to Hagrath and Otill, which you never saw at all, but which sent such fragrant messages to the travelling journalists?" And there was no answer, so today I leave it to the pencil. For the first time on our wonderful trip, we heard, as the train slowed up, the sound of music. ".V band!" wo quoth, breathlessly, and amazed, "for ub!" I think every heart grow a bit younger in that moment. Of a ^uroty every face lighted with sheer delight. This was our marathon. Never as long as I live, shall I forget the sight which we looked out upon as we crept in toward the station. The whole (own had turned out. Cvery man who could ride and had a bronco to cross saddle was there. Immovable, like the cowboys in the magazine pic -tures, horses and naen stood, clear cut against the sky. Children thronged the station, their faces alight with a shy eagerness that was beautiful because ot its earnestness and simplicity. Every "livery" in the place jvas there. Drags, ..buckboaivfs, carriages, 'busses, and to cap all, two North-West Mounted Police; all wore waiting to take us on a l-patient body is absolutely felt on the soul of the one who loves his kind. The grey bucked. He was quirted and shouted at. He dxl his barbarious "stunt" and-I was mighty glad when it was over. We hod luncheon at Cardstons best hotel, and the cowbo.vs came to visit us. What men! hard as nails and absoltitel.v like the niagnr.ino stories! That was the oddest part of it. Like, too, so like, .John In-nes' Western pictures-which have always given me a mysterious joy. Here I was looking at .lack Ip le.s' cowboys. The same "get-up," the same keen, l>right. hordy faces, and tight-knit figures, the same snapp -ing bright eyes-like a squirrel's, t keen as pointed sun-darts. It was \ difHcult to get awa,v from those liv-ii>g pictures which I had never hoped to meet in real life. After this. I shall look on the magazine cov- -boys with a greater reverence. Uow delightful was that da.v at Cardston! We drove, in batches across the wide prairies,' a cowbo.y was otir driver-and listened to Western tales with delight and regret. Iti.-gret that one was not younger, nioy-be; ^delight, that one was not toe old to Jove it all, and fee! its chantniicnt. The spirit of the W walked abroad with us in Cardston. Never have I known a place so rejuvenating! As we drove over tho.se rolling plains, saw the horse ranches the cattle, the wheat, "young and green and aspring. and noted the only limitation, the horizon, heaven itself, the heart swelled with thankfulness and reverence in that onowas hero, and hail one's claim b.v 'jIoou in a land so fair, so grand, so rich, and so blessed! We had some speech-making at the Assembly Hall, with delightful interludes of mandolin and guitar. The hall was decorated and kindly Bi.s-hop Hammer had provided for lh. American � delegates to our contingent, little Union Jack Hags, which they took heartily, and placed where Uncle Sam rampages on the great Fourth. Then came our departure- nd ne delayed it. In vain did the mighty CP.It. whistle. We laughed at it. In vain did Mr. George Ham wave his hat at the slow-coming carriages. We laughed again. We didn't want to go, if the sheer truth be told. AVe were having "tho time" of our trip and Cardston hold u.i. Then came, vhat to me was a mo.st affecting farewell. The little children, several hundreds of them, were standing in rows at the stat -ion awaiting us. They had white-lined baskets of flowers which they had been one whole day picking, ready, tied up in bunches. And the blessed tots went about us offering us boquets as if we were Personages, ond royal at that. Oh, it was our Marathon! The band pla.ycd as we pulled out at last, and thcro was not one woman in the two cars but wouldhave thrown her hat in tho air in a cheer for Cardston. I have that little bouquet of flowers by me as 1 write. It is dried and faded and lies in a long, offlc'al en velope. But when I bend my face to it. and smell the still fri^grant Al berta roses, there comes also somf essence of kindliness, mixed with a generous West-and I say "That's perfunie of the wild and free, and Cardston." earnestness of the whole thing, l'"' ^litection iinri warrikth of it wens tleop-iy touching. ; What a day it was! Our Marathon. First Cartiston, where left '�'v.-biggest ,, part of our hearts, i � then Magrath, wiiero we rittitod with iiii-othcr heart section, finally Qu.l, where we left our last remnant. V tiuli-some call it Quill-s-'nt us un j^nohiious bouquet of Albertn rose.s, and It billet-doux. No I will not i�-yeiil what was in that,letter. It was Signeil b.v some half dozen boys, and is too sacred to print. Wo did not ^top ut Oull that I rcmcmlir, jiiit by some weird enchnntmont the Toses come aboiuvl I'lhclled "from the Boys of Cull." Wo �would have likoil to thank the boys pcr.sonnlly, but i>erhaps it was just as Vvell that we were not perniittetl to do so.

Later in the same day, to tiio sound of another band, we drew in at Magrath. A small tovn this, I ut a strenuous one. Hero, ^00, everyone seemed to have come to mo ft us, and a stirring addrass was gi>'-en on tho platform by the preside-it of the Board'^f Trade-I boliovc. \k to this I am not sure, as our Mtay was a hurried one.

This is in accordance with the announcement made by the C. p. R. some time ago, when they rosolvoJ to establish at dilTerent points along their system bolts of trees to be used eventually for ties. This experiment of the C.P.R. will be watched with very great interest by .the residents of the town, as it will not only add another attraction to those which tho town ulread.v possesses, but it will establish once and for all the debated qiicstipn as to whether pine can Ijo grown in Maple Crook successfully.
