"It said he, "one of the first (iut ies in our country to extend trade in all .directions. We are a young na- tion at the threshold of our career; believe m expanding our trade, rpon what lines shall that policy be developed? By Trade between prov- ince and province; that was the rea- son we sought to develop and create line? of communication.

OFFICE FORMERLY AT CARDSTON BRIDGE APPOINT- j ED AGENT Magrath, Sept. new real es- tate insurance :md loan company has opened up for business in Magrath during the past week, the name of the firm being Bingham Reid. Mr, Bingham has been conducting the business of.the .Magrath Reality Co. for about six years and has establish- ed himself firmly in t.he Garden City in thai line. 1-iis partner, Mr. Keid, s a Winnipeg man, and a real live wire. For several years he has been witU the American Central insurance Co. of St. Louis, being special ageni for that company in Western Ciinada. He came to Ma- srath two weeks ago in the interests of the American Central, and so impressed with the town and district! that, he made a co-operation with their local agent, Mr. Jiingham, with the result, that the new firm was form- ed. The company will have offices in tire .Mercer building and will con- duct a general real estate, loan and insurance business. Eighteen entries have been received by Choirmaster J. O. Bridge, with Secretary Card of the Caixlston Agri- cultural Society, for the musical fes- tival to be held in connection with ihe fair next Friday and Saturday. Land Agent at Magrath Last Saturday evening .John Bridge received notice uom the Department 01' the Interior at Ottawa that he had been appointed sub-land agent for the Magrath office. A communication -told of the abolition of the sub-land [office at Cardslon, and its removal to I ibis town. Mr. Bridge will be in- ducted in his new oflice immediately, land in the future he will transact all Dominion lands'business from The lo- cal olfice. The announcement of the] government in this matter ban rjniH-1 cd much comment here, but vvcry ono j (Iclfglii at the action of tho! Minister of the Interior in respecting tho claims of Magrath to an office, it will' rt-moinbcTed that this spring an effort wait nindc nji tlio part of the Hoard of'Tnide to have an oflice open- ed here. Mil wiiun no action was taken by tbor -iv appeared as rhough the claims of the Garden City would not. be recognized. But this lias been found to be untrue, and the request of the people here has been duiy considered by the government and satisfactorily acted upon. Xo doubt the removal of the land office to Magrath--will arouse some dissatis- faction at Cardstoii as it has been located there for a great many years. When the central location of this point is taken into consideration, coupled with its nearness to the re- cently opened homestead country to.: the south, it wilt easily recognized i that Magrath is justly entitled to the] office. I ers in. many of the districts he had visited seemed to regard the present year as one full of blessing and IITOS- neriiy. Heavy Sentence At Saskatoon LETHBRIDGE IS j TALKED ABOUT! MEN COMPETENT TO JUDG THAT ITS FUTURE SURED UDGj IS TO- SAY "What impresses me moat about your city is its municipal development since I visited here last spring."

Mr. Duncan docs not belong-'to that class known as "boom, and as if to'make himself, clear- ly understood on that score be con- cluded by saying that not far distant future would prove whether or not His judgment was at fault.
