Million a Night for Fun.
A million dollars a night. That's
what n proprietor of a llroadway hotel

$100001; hotels $176000; cafes flow

"If thero Isn't a million spent In the

It Indicates Fresh Hopes and
Renewed Buoyancy of
How wonderfully tight the spring
aaiitlur-lust for tho couutrysldu grips
Spring fucr with all of Its health-
fulness Is tho harbinger of fresh
hopes nnd n buojnucy ot spirit.
I noticed n iinsseuger on a Detroit-
Chicago train the other day who had
started out on his trip with the evi-
dent intention of becoming deeply
taken with one of tho heat sellers
t lm t he might shorten the trip between
the two cities You luivu donu tho
same thing jourself.
Hut his bunk had been cast nsldc.
lie had rend only n few pages. Ills
Intcrrttt In It had lagged.
From the car windows he wns count-
ing the fields now bared of snow. The
ditches were oarrlng nwny the water
mid tin1 still less sluggloh creeks wero
now streams bearing the overflow to
the rivers. The farmer. In his nhlrt
sleoxes was repairing tho fences after
the winter drifts; the cnttlu showing
proof of a winter's stabling and now
heading bete and there townrd the
meadows seeking tho now-green
patrhes of grass; tho farm helj) In
field nnd stubble was putting Into
repair this and that necessary fea-
ture here looking after his plow nnd
there his harrow and on nil sides were
scenes which reminded the traveler
that spring was here at last!
As the train rped onward nnd
glimpses of tho painter ns ho worked
on tho weather-beaten buildings were
revealed the Interest of the tourist
was aroused anil when I asked him
the leason ho answered: "Spring Is
hern ami I feel Its blood Mowing!"
The- truth wns that like many
others hn was planning the work he
wns to do the coming summer. He
wns going out to the farm his farm
In Western Cnnudn. He had his wells
to dig. hl horses to get Into shape
his grain implements to II. up his
i-eed grain to prepare and other de-
tails Tor the IhiiiI that wns ready to
receive It. His was what might be
termed an "unrest" to get to the
Thousands In Western Canada to-
day urn making the preparations that
this luteroHti'd man contemplated.
Their summer fallows are ready for
the wheat their spring plowing is
being attended to. fences nro being
rebuilt or being put Into repair; In-
deed the entire country Is one great
lilvo of Industry.
Knllrontls nre In readiness to take
care of a great rush of settlers thoso
chnrgi'd with tho reception of whom
nre prepared to Oxteml every cour-
tesy nnd thus meet the -ush with
Judgment and without tl least fric-
tion. Thus tho enjoyment of the
opening nf spring Is fully met.
At many of tho stations throughout
many of tho inlddla western states
trains of settlers' effects are In reaUl
ness to move to Western Canada. Not
only In thro states nto scenes of this
kind to be witnessed hut also on
either roast and throughout tho east-
ern stales there Is tho i-amo activity
among those going to Western Can-
nda this spring. Tho crops have been
heavy and nil reports are that the
winter was enjoyable; also that the
prospects for a satisfactory )ear were
nnver better. There Is plenty of lund
yet to be had by homesteadlng or oth-
erwise. Adapted as Western Cnuada
Is to small grain farming It Is espe-
cially ndupted to cattle raising and
many nf the farmers aro placing small
nnd large herds ns their Individual
means will permit.
Tho Illustrated Uteraturo sent out
by tho Canadian government agents
tells tho truth clearly and tho Innulrcr
should send for u copy and If you be
one of thoso who has an ambitious
Interest jou may bo tho gnlner by
a perusal of uch Information-
straight cold facts in themselves.
