Land is Producing.
. Tiiesday, August 3, is the date of the
next excursion to "Sunny Southern
Alberta," Canada. , This will be the
beBt time of all the year for prospec
tive purchasers to look at Alberta land
as small grain will just be ready for
cutting and thrashing. One can see at
a glance exactly what the climate and

famous wheat belt have not been bet

professional men of Cass county have
already made purchases in Alberta.

most of them buying a quarter section
or more before they return. Six years
ago this land sold at from $2 to $5 an
acre; today, it is selling at from $12 or
$15 up to $50 an acre.
The Canadian Pacific R. R. Co. ad
vanced the price of its lands 20 per cent
on July 15 and further advances
sure to come as the home seekers
tinueto rush into that country.
If you cannot possibly get away to
go on Aug. 3, you can go on the next
excursion day, which will be August 17.
Alberta grows the best wheat to be
found, the yield being from 30 to 55
bushels per acre. Oats yield from CO
to 100 bushels and barley, 40 to 80 bu
shels. You can purchase first class
dry land within 2, 3 or 4 miles of a mar
