THE REAL ESTATE MAN. in Missoula's real estate dealers are getting together in the perfection of 01 an organization which will, if carried ti out, prove beneficial to themselves and to the city. The real estate dealer, if h he is the right sort, is the best asset that a town can have: he is a persis tent boomer, an energetic promoter, a zealous advertiser of the city's advan tages. His is the glad hand that wel comes the stranger who enters the city; his is the effort that interests the visitor in the town: his is the voice < crying in the wilderness that lets the sI world know that the town is alive. tl All of these qualities are characteristic " of the conscentious real estate man; sometimes there are black sheep in b the flock, but the square-toed, honest- in Injun real estate man is a help to the a town that is his home. The associa tion which the Missoula real estate men contemplate will serve for their t( own protection against the operations " of the unscrupulous dealer; in this re spect it will be a safeguard to the rep utation of the city. Missoula has so b much to offer that is good that there 5' is no occasion for any misrepresenta tion regarding her advantages; the truth is enough. The purpose of the tf proposed association is to be the es- si tablishing of a system and standard s of dealing that will inspire confidence; membership in the organization will ti be a guarantee of a man's integrity. a The Missoulian believes the move is 0 in the right direction. DIFFERENT. One of the criticisms which have been made against world's fairs and I other great expositions is that they are all alike; that each is a copy on some scale of Paris and Chicago. Those who are familiar with the plan of the t Seattle exposition and with the work I that has been done on it, agree that this fair will be different. It will pos sess original features that will make t it popular at once with those who 1 visit it. Those who planned this year's show assumed nothing less than the task of introducing that half of the world which is developed almost to the ulti mate, to that other half which, by comparison is developed not at all, and which, for centuries to come, must be the field of the world's greatest work. Seattle's exposition will bring together the Occident and the Orient and fetch Alaska from the north to know them I both. It will assemble the islands and the peoples of the south seas, so that Tagal may look at Siwash and the world know each as he is. Also the easterner may look upon peoples and scenes of his own country that he knows not. This is the fundamental difference between the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific show and its predecessors. hiut there are others-the exposition will be ready to open on time. It was ninety-five per cent completed three months be fore the opening date, June 1, and it did not ask the United States govern ment for money. Equally surprising is the fact that the hotel keepers of the exposition city have made an iron clad agreement not to raise their rates. The railroads expect to carry two million people to Seattle this summer. They will see the most novel, and what Charles Dana Gibson has pronounced to be, the most beautiful exposition ever planned. THE EQUINOX. According to the almanac and the weather bureau, we bid farewell to winter today. Tonight we shall go to bed in winter time and tomorrow we shall wake up in spring. The official date for the transition is 1 o'clock Sunday morning. The astronomical announcement, however, does not carry a guarantee of spring weather, and that may work a disappointment. But we will say good-bye to winter, any way, today; if he persists in hanging around for a while, we can't help it: he has been a mighty good old wintrer, and we think kindly of him, but we will esteem him all the more highly if he will depart on schedule time. At 1 o'clock Sunday morning the sun will enter Aries and, according to metenr ology, thus it is that spring is here, whether the temperature he at the zero point or sizzling hot up in the nine ties. At the same period comes what is popularly known as the equl noctlal storm. Twentieth century scientists, however, say that there is no such thing as the "equinoctial storm," which, they declare, is a desig nation given to the heaviest storm that happens to occur within a few weeks of tthe date of the etquinox, which is the time the sun is passing over the line. It is also explained that while the sun is in the equinox the days and nightts arte ,'t equal length all over the world. At the veriial or spring equi nox th, sun is passing front the soutn to north. and in tile nIlrthlern hemis phre thic days are lengtlhening. GOOD WORK.
