clearly than at the North Dakota Agri

Names of flvo of these qx-soldlers

Last Chance fox
THINK of what you could produce on a farm of virnin fertility, without the
X burden of high-acreage cost Think of what 20-to40 bushel wheat would mean
to you under these conditions, and of dairying and stock raising on cheap pasture land.
Land pays for itself in a few crops no artificial fertilizer no heavy investment.
You have envied the farmer who got his start when land was cheap. Here's your
chance, perhaps your last chance, for the same brand of prosperity.

dear only $ 15 to CO an acre for rich, virBin. prai
rie convenient to railways. Land U not dear In
Western Canada yet because there Is so aaoch

and now is 'your opportunity, before the best
farms are taken. Get started. Taxes are r
s!aca4, not raited, on land brought under culti
vation. On farm buildings, improvements,
machinery, personal effects, automobile, etc.,
there la no tax at all, Canada wants workers
k wants its land farmed and the farmers,
through their municipal councils, have practical
control of all local taxation.
