Pres ent indications are that the Canadian Northwest will draw an exceptionally heavy movement of new settlers from tho United States this year. It should surpass the banner record for 1907. This is not only based on the fact that tho Americans havo come to realize generally that tho Canadian Northwest offers splendid opportuni ties, but also because the railroads havo awakened to tho fact and are offering rates to tho Canadian North west which are exceptionally favor able. Tho lines which lead to St. Paul from tho east and south are offering homeseekers' rates to tho Canadian Northwest this year which are on a parity with those in existence to tho southwest for a couple of seasons.

Muskogee Cimeter. W. M. TWINE, KdlUft, MUSKOGEE, r OKLA. Strive to Be Cheerful. Most portions aro of the opinion that If a nmn la not favored by nature with u cheerful Hplrlt, ho cannot protend to be cheerful. Yet this Is not really the cnuo, and thero Is many a man who h at present ji weury burden to his rela tives, miserable through the carklng euro of some bodily ailment, perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, If ho had grown up Into the Idea that to be cheerful under all circumstances was one of the first duties of life, might still Bee a pleasant enough world around him.

Modesto, Gal., purchased Its elec tric plnnt in 1899, hut tins since shut down Its generating plant and leased the distributing plant. A well Inform ed citizen says: "The city was able to buy power cheaper than it could generate it Moreover, new boilers were needed, the city had provided no renewal fund and the people disliked the Idea of bonding. The waterworks also were leased to private parties." The mayor of Pitlsfield, III., assigns the following reason for the sale of the electric plant formerly owned by that city: "Cheaper to pay the l'lttstleld Elec tric company than to do it ourselves. We ran it ourselves for several years and have had It run by contract at least live years, saving moue'y by con tracting it to outsiders."
