And Filed on Western Canada
Land. Now Worth $50,000.
Lawrence Bros, of Vera, Saskatche
wan, are looked upon ns being nmongst
the most progressive farmers ln West
ern Cnnndn. They have bad their
"ups-and-downs," nnd know what It
Is to be ln tight pinches. They perse
vered, nnd aro now. In nn excellent
flnnnclnl position. Their story Is an
Interesting one. Coming ln from tho
stntes they traveled 6vcrlnnd from
Calgary ncross the Bnttlo river, tho'
Red Deer river, through the Eaglo
Hills nnd on to Hattleford. On tho
wny their horses were stolen, but thl
did not dishearten them. They hnd
some money, with which they bought
more horses, and some provisions.
When they reached Battleford they
had only money enough to pay their
fcrrlnge over the Saskatchewan river,
nnd this they hnd to borrow. It was
In 1000 that they filed on homesteads,
having to sell a shotgun for ten dol
lars In order to get sufficient money t
do so. Frank Lawrence says:
"Since thnt tlmo we hnvo acquired
altogether n section nnd a half of
land, In nddltlon to renting another
three qunrters of a section. If wo
hnd to sell out now we could probably
realize about $50,000, nnd hnvo mado
all this since wo camo here. Wc get
crops In this district of from 80 to
35 bushels of whent to the acre and
oats from 40 to 80 bushels to tho acre.
Stock here pays well. Wc hnve 1,700
sheep, 70 cattle and 00 horses, of whlcb
a number are registered Clydes."
Similar successes might be given of
the experiences of hundreds of farm
ers throughout Western Canada, who
hnve done comparatively as well. Why
should they not dress well, live well,
have comfortablo homes, with all mod
ern equipments, electric light, steam
heat, pure ventilation, and automo
biles. Speaking of automobiles It will
be n revelation to the reader to learn,
that during the first half of 1017, 10,
000 automobile licenses were Issued lt
Albcrtn, twice ns many as In tho wholo
of 1010. In Saskntchewan, 21,000 li
censes were issued up to tho first of
May, 1017. In Its monthly bulletin for
June the Canadian Bank of Commerce
makes special reference to this phnso
nnd to the general prosperity of the
West ln the following:
"Generally speaking the western
farmer Is, ln many respects, In a mucb
better position thnn hitherto to In
crease his production. Two ycare of
high prices for his products hnvo en
abled him, even with a normal crop,
to liquidate a substantial proportion,
of bis liabilities and at the same time
to buy Improved fnrm mnchlnery. Hl
prosperity Is reflected ln tho demand;
for building materials motor cars
and other equipment. It Is no doubt
true thnt some extravagance Is evi
denced by the astonishing demand for
motor cars, but it must bo remembered:
thnt many of these cars will mako for
efficiency on tho form and economize
both tlmeimd labor." Advertisement.
