absolutely certain to produce results
that are satisfactory in all cases. Sold

Created Wealth-
Something from nothing a garden
from a desert. Such is the history of
irrigated sections. Take land thatsells
for fifty cents an acre, put wateron it,
and it sells for what? There are
quarters of land In Irrigated sect ions of
Colorado that cannot bo purchased for
20,0iM) and which cam a remunerative
interest on that valuation. And yet
you can purchase irrigated lands where
the soil is perfect beyond belief, where
the water supply Is plentiful and in
exhaustible, w here climatic conditions
arc healthful ami exhilarating, where
fuel is abundant and cheap, for from
1" an acre up.
The reasons: The North 1'lattc Val
ley, extending from llridgeport, Neb.,
to Guernsey, Wyoming, and the l!ig
Horn Hasin, Wyoming, have been but
recently made avai'ablo for settlement
by the extension of the Hurlington
railroad into those sections. The Ir
rigating Companies must have settlers
along their ditches and they offer sub
stantial inducements in the shape of
low priced water rights and lands.
How long will tlds condition con
tinue? None may say surely, but it
won't be for long, and the sooner you
invest the cheaper will you be able to
do so, for the advance Is just as sure as
has been the advance in the price of
similar lands in other sections. For
further information write to J. Francis
General passenger agent, Hurlington
