I'd say, because they were living at Emerson which is a border crossing to the USA, that James probably inspected grain as a customs official, or shipping broker. (just a guess mind you because he might have inspected grain from local farmers when they brought it to the grain elevators.)

Children born to Maria Holst.
LAST NAME: MASSIE
FIRST NAME: JULIAN HOLST
DATE OF BIRTH: 10/18/1894
PLACE OF BIRTH: EMERSON
SEX: M
REGISTRATION NUMBER: 1894,002893

LAST NAME: MASSIE
FIRST NAME: DAVID HOLST
DATE OF BIRTH: 02/20/1896
PLACE OF BIRTH: EMERSON
SEX: M
REGISTRATION NUMBER: 1896,003871

There's also a JOHN ARTHUR BUCHANAN, b. 04/05/1890, REGISTRATION NUMBER: 1890,004491 born to a Lizzie Buchanan in Emerson. Don't know who the father is or if he's related at all J.A.B. Massie died in Emerson at the age of 2 months (06/05/1890). His mother Lizzie died in Emerson also at the age of 24. ( 05/05/1890) - within a month of his birth.

MASSIE , DALTON HOLST b. 21/02/1896 Emerson, MB, automobile mechanic,single, signed up for WW I. He was living at 265 Nassau St, Wpg and lists his father James as next of kin, also living at the same address. (you might ask someone to do a search of Henderson Directories for Wpg to see how long this family lived there).

If James farmed, it wasn't through the Western Land Grants that I can see, in other words, he wasn't a homesteader.

It looks like this might be James Massie's death.

(again query someone to look for his obit in the Wpg newspapers). Unless he moved to St. Boniface, then he probably died there because he was in the St. Boniface Hospital.
