SOUTHARD Lethbridge a man who has trovelled Itwo thousr and miles to see the Canadian Rockies spend nearly all his time brag -ging of other wonders he has witness ed. while the marvels of nature on his night hand and on his left are slipping by. wholly unobserved. Men of this kind always come from a city whore they have something that is the largesit in the world." man will tell you t,hait in his town they have the deepest artesian well in the world; another comes from the place where they gather the finest oysters in the world, bar none; another conu>8 from a city where they have, admittedly, the finest street car service in the world: or the best electric light plant in the world or the finest swing bridge in the world. After meeting a few of these people it becomes an acute anxiety to you when you meet the next one to learn what greatest thing in the world distinguishes the particular little corner of the earth from which he comes. If he does not blurt it out within ten minutes you feel like asking him. If he does not tell you of it within fifteen minuteS' it is safe to conclude that he belongs to one of the other varieties. To skip from the noisy, aggressive, assertive kind, there is an admirable class that one meets with on the trains-unobtrus -ive, low-spoken, dressed in excellent taste, getting on the journey without seeming to try tor it. the best of everything in car, boat or hotel-leaving their assertive fellow- coun -trymen spouting anger because the rooms are all taken or because there is not a vacant scat in the dining toom. These quiet ones who speak little but see and comprehend everything and by some noiseless instinct get possession of every desirable vantage in a long journey across con tinent-�nd who. If they do not have a thing, show no desire for it whatever-must be the men who infuse ginger into the business game as it is played in ttic United States. In a nation of shouters these silent movers go in and out picking over the priws and taking the l)est. But taking them as they come, alt kinds of men from across the border are good men for the Canadian west. They know their way about. They have opened up new countries before and know by experience what to do and what to avoid doing. They are resourceful,; a cold winter does not phase them; a crop ruined by frost does not scare them away. "I have seen," said one of these men, "land rise in value from $4 an acre to 9100 In four states ot'the BopublJc, and I shall see it again in this part | of Saskatchewan." He has been> a mover since boyhood, buying cheap land selling in a few years�Jater at a good pric^ and piking on to some new outpost on the plains. If the leather of which he is made lasits, he vegetables in his garden, which they did. '"Yes," said the srtranger, ''I'm kind o' lookin' fer a place. I've been north and I'm kind o' movin' back slow till I see what I want." Next morning the stranger asked the farm er how man.y acres he had, got him to point out the boundaries of the propert.v and asked what he would One \take for it just as it stood at that moment. The farmer had not thought of*8elling but put his price at, $12,-000. "Come dovn to my schooner and I'll pay .you right now." And he did... The stranger's wife took charge of the house and the farmer and his family were guests at noon dinner with the new owner. They were invited to stay two or thrae days on a visit until they got their future.plans laid. There's a suddenness about a transaction of this kind that rather dazes a farmer who spent his early days in Ontario, where two men will haggle for a tlay in buying and selling a milch cow.
