Booklnii have been fairly heavv all'iummer, but tbe fal! season, which In juil opening, has already eclipsed til. pre- vious years. A new scheme list been .naugurated through (he WMt for tandllnc steamship bookings on the j. P. K. lines. Formerly all reaerva- ions had to be made through the Winnipeg office, often entnlllng con- siderable delay. This, however, has been overcome, as the local'agents In all the main centres In the western provinet-j liilve been given space nl- lotments on all steamers for second and third class passengers, I that now all bookings mar be made direct. This should prove a ureiit convenience to the travelling public. Another change which will be wel- comed is the betterment of service for tlilrd class passengers. Tilt space has been cut down considerably, but the iiccommodatlon tins been bettered ac- cordingly, and the company claims that the service been bettered b) t'voiu.v-five percent. The company pects a very heavy season, and hive made arrangements accordingly, which they believe will meet all require- ments. CLARKE CO.
