Valuable Information: This new folder will con
tain much valuable information not exaggerated state
ments about what a few good farmer.- have produced, but
information about what a large number of farmers have
accomplished under ordinary conditions.
The New Railroad just now being completed, to
the south, connecting the Big Hern Basin with Denver.
Omaha, and other eastern markets will make this folder
especially interesting. Write for it today. It 13 free and
contains a large map of the Big Horn Basin.
