No otlier centre of population got its name in such a qaeor waj'. The story camp from the Indians that over half a fCentury ago a pioneer traveller, Lord Duns-more, with liis wife and child, cainped on the banks of the Btream now hnown as Thunder Crock. They were halted on thqir -march because their Red lliver cart had broken down, the queer old vehicle, with only two wheels that are minus iron riras. Home-made were the carts, and many a record has been left of other travellers over the plains, who wrote of tiie creaking, fpringless wagon that was a torture to ride in over uneven jirairifi trails. Well,' the Dnnsinoro cart fell by the wayside because tlie creaky old wheel broke and there were no waf^on repair shops within a hundred Icncfues. What �was to 1)0 done? f'onieone had ingenuity and wit Enough to pick up the jaw lione of a moose, lying among the bones that in those days strewed the plains. With this tlie wheel was mended, and KO the little sottleraeut that tliereaftei" sprang up on the spot was known as the place where the white man found the moose jaw, or at least that was the long title given to it by the red men. Few cities have their origin so definitely suggested a� Moose Jaw. It js interesting to make a comparison between the historic scene dgpictcd in the illustration, whon^ the little traveller fixed up the broken vehicle, and the Moose Jaw of to-day, and as the years go by the gulf between the tAVo, perhaps, between the yesterday and to-day of ilooso Jaw will become more and more marked. x Situated close to the heart of the Province of Saskatchewan Moose Jaw occupies a favorable commercial p(^sition. The city is built on one of the greatest wheat-grovying belts in tho world. It is developing rapidly, and has many fine buildings and twelve ehurches.' Tho investment of the C. P. R. in terminala within the city is about $61000,. 000, the yards there having 53' miles trackage, ^F. y.
