Profit From Wheat
The war's devastation of
European crops has caused
an unusual demand forgrain
from the American Conti
nent. The people of the world must
be fed and wheat near $2 a bushel
offers preat profits to the farmer.
Canada's invitation is therefore
especially attractive. She wants
settlers to make money and happy,
Srosperous homes for themselves by
elplng her raise immense wheat crops.
Yon can get a Homestead of 100 acres FREE
and other lands nt remarkably low prices. During many
years Canadian wheat Melds have averaged 20 bushels to
the acre many yields as hiRh as 45 bushels to the acre.
Wonderful crops also of Oats, Barley and Flax.
Mixed farming as profitable an industry as grain rais

Calf conservation looks like n pood

There are always somo culls that can-i

as breeders or for beef. If every calf;

Feed the Fighters ! Win the War ! !
Harvest the Crops Save the Yields
On the battle fields of France and Flanders, the United States boys and the
Canadian boys are fighting side by side to win for the World the freedom that Prus
danism would destroy. While doing this they must be fed and every ounce of
muscle that can be requisitioned must go into use to save this year's crop. A short
harvest period requires the combined forces of the two countries in team work, such
as the soldier boys in France and Flanders are demonstrating.

Harvesters in America WILL Irinej the Allied Vlotory Nearer.
A reciprocal rran(ftment for tho uso of farm workers has ben perfected between the Depart
ment of the Interior of Canada and the Department of Labor and Agriculture of the United Statea,
under which it is proposed to permit the harvesters that are now engaged in the wheat fields of Okla
homa, Kansas. Iowa. North Dakota, South Dakota. Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin to mora
over into Canada, with the privilege of later returning to the United States, when the crops in ths
United States have been conserved, and help to save the enormous crops in Canada which by that
time will be ready for harvesting.
