Baird's story is as When 1 first wnv Winnipeg in the 'late summer of ISS1 U was a strug- gling and unkempt town of about 8000 inhabitants with a broad and muddy Irons! for its main street and'a con- Uiiierable share of its business houses i using canvas for walls and for roof. But meagre as its population was. it 'boasted un importance and a spirit [quite out ot-proportion to its size. It i reached its climax tn the winter of 1SS1-S2 was bt'ginniiiK. During the first week of any stay I was the guest for an 'evening in a homo where dur- ing the day the, man of lint family had sold a piece of land which lie had owned foi1 r.iily a few weeks ut an advance of live1 thousand dollars. We talked of little elsty the whole ing. However widely the conversa- tion might roam for a few minutes lie alvays came back to the live thous- and and in imagination spent it over again. H was the beginning of a period of excitement and speen-1 L'itiou in which prodigious fortunes j were made during the winter and lost when Uis boom burst the next spring, j Winnipeg at that time Protestant churches, one Presbyter- inn, one Anglican ;md one Methodist, find although the town had some of the features of the wild ami woolly west, it was a church KOIHK place and the churches were centres of a con- siderable degree of social and relig- ious activity. H was my lot to preach in Knox church on the morning of my first Sunday in town ami to preach in tlie pioneer1 church in Kildonnn on the afternoon of the same day. Tho next Sunday I preached in- St. Andrew's congregation, which was then in pro- cess of being organized ami which was holding its services in the court wooden building on Main Street, not far from where the city hali now stands.

At tlie Majestic The first real musical show of die season to reach here will be John P. Blocuni's production of the Princess Theatre hit "-Xobody Home" which is announced for next Saturday, June 3rd. at the Majestic theatre. Mr. 8locum is one of the most lav- ish producers identified with the Am- erican stage and stops at no expense. His cast includes none but Broadway favorites and as a result his success is always assured. There is a charm to be found in "Xobody Home" that is seldom as- j sociated with musical comedies just j charm of originality.
