To the Editor Lethbridge Herald: Dear Sir.-For many years the writer has ior.ged for a trip the Atlantic Ocean to revisit the scenes o( his early boyhood, t.ut novcr until this summer had he tho justification or the opportunity f..r doing so. That justification came in continued nervous prostration, and the means in being permitted to take charge of a cattle train to Montrval. A two thousand mile ride on a cattle train is sotnethin,; uni'quc for a person to tukc and its many of my friends are nn.xious u> know about niy trip, I take tho .j))-portunity otlered by your columns of satisfying them. This letter will give some impressions ot' the trip and some of the scenes by tho way. 1 was warned that the trip would likely be hard on me, but I emerged at the otlier end dirty imle�?d, and very >tired, but with some fresh views of life and vigorous as a yoimgmnn of thirty. 'J'he discomforts are not worth while spcakirg of. True we had no palatial dining cars nor luxurious sleep-ing cars, indeed somotim?s no place to sleep oxcefit the benches. 1 believe we did not ride in a single calH>osc, and wc had sixteen all ol the same \-aHlcty with no sanitary conveniences of any kind and ver.v primitive toilet arrangomcr.i. I might say that the parson irav-dl-ed on tho train Incognito. Pressed in cheap. Hght coloretl Bunwncr .stilt with no item of clerical attire, the* parson saw some life without the repressive influence of .ciericaRKni. Oftentimes I have doubted >n this part whether the ordinary man !n the west bad mueh respect for itui office , oif the minister. Uiit I will never doulHmeain, The boys on'lh>! whole w-ore,good fellows, still thoy would swear awfully at times, ujll main outline was correct. How yams do change as they pass from mouth to mouth. At Schreiber, adivisional point in the wilderness north of Lake Supe.v ior, the parson had a terrible fright. We arrived in  tho village about one o'clock in the morning, the ni)?ht was inky black and a drizzling rain was falling. Here and there a few lights weiv! to bo seen. The �ttle men and railway bands had work to do. 1%anks to my kind and thought ful friend who goit me the trip, J was the gentleman of the party, having no work to ries of losMOs previously to this. In nay -mowl I harought to carry mo to Wlnni|>eg. Itotwecn Itegina, where I lost my train and nroad-view I lost. mytia.tW rain coat. divisional points. I think we chani{-cd cabooses sixteen times, and each time they seldom stopiied more than fifteen minutes between our arrival and departure. It was dangerous to get off for any reason whatsoever Wo left Macleod on a Tuesday evening, July the 17th and arrived Montreal on Wednesday the 2.5th. 1 believe on my arrival at the stoi;i yards I nwist have Ijeeu the tfirties looking parson who ever arriwjd la the city. My most intinwte friends would not have recogniaod me. Sath ed, clothed clerically and feeling quite respectable again, I sought the Board of Trade building where was to get my cabin passage .tnd further information. Hero I found a ticket for a first-class passage on the steamship Othenia, Dominion .line. At eight o'clock that, evening I vent on board and got settled down in cabin which I found very comfortable indeed. I' was greatly amused at my youitg friend who iiad charge of me, who ndvised mo to keep "mum" about conving down in charge of a cattle train. Perhaps he said, some of the "swells" will think of you if you "let tlJis out." I thought of Bobbie Burns poem, "A man's a man for a' that.' I will tell you about life on the vessel next week.
