TO FARMERS WHO UNDERSTAND
THE GREAT VALUE
OFGOVERNMENT IRRIGATED LANDS
Watch for the expected announcement this Autumn of the
opening by the Government of its new 12,000 acre Frannie tract
in the Big Horn Basin. 200 reliably irrigated farms. No
agents. No commissions. Direct to you from Uncle Sam,
free homestead land and actual cost of perpetual water-right
20 years’ time, no interest and no payment between the first
and fifth year.
If you want to know the future value of these farms, visit
the adjacent locality of Powell, Wyoming, in the heart of 40,000
acres of irrigated land under this same Government Canal.
The Government has now on file more applications than it has
farms to allot, but we believe it our duty to let you know of
I this chance.
Write me and I will keep your name on file, to
inform you as to the date of this opening.
S. B. HOWARD, IMMIGRATION AGENT,
1004 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska.
We keep at it, summer and winter, doing our utmost to
give you the verv best
that the country affords. . We don’t close out when hot
weather comes to save the ice bill, as some markets do.
We serve you all of the time. Won’t you stay with us?
