Big Money hi Flax
. The experience of the American
farmer in the Northwestern states for
the past few years has shown that it is
possible, ; in such a country as the
Saskatchewan Valley, for the farmer to
pay the entire cost of his land with one
flax crop. -In this district yields of-flax
fcf 25 bushels an acre are common; and
at recent prices"the farmer can pay for
his land twice-over In the first year.
tasfiear &ssiniboia, and Saskatche
iwan produced over 5,000,000 bushels of
oats. Yields of from 134 to 147 bushels
per acre were recorded by Superintend

(The magnificent yields of fodder corn
in .Western Canada assure tbe future of
dairying. There is no place in the world
where a greater quantity of fodder corn
can be cut from an acre. Yields of from
24 to 26 tons per acre are common.
The Natural Home
Cattle raising Is one of the most im
portant branches of farming in the
Saskatchewan Country, the business
proving very profitable. The prairies
are covered with the most nutritious
grasses, that cure naturally on the
ground, which keep the Btock in good
condition the year through. During
the past three years prices for all
classes of cattle have steadily increased.
With little feeding, cheap grain and
good markets, the farmer can raise cat
tle with a certain and large profit.

Wheat is King.
The two great districts of Assiniboia
and Saskatchewan are capable of pro
ducing wheat sufficient to feed the world.
The district in which the Saskatchewan
vValley Land Company's lands lie aver
aged last year 29.54 bushels to the acre
on 140,000 acres, more than double the
average for Minnesota and the Da-kotas.
Both wood and coal can be had at'
reasonable prices. Timber belts skirt
the river banks and the shores of the
lakes, and coal is found in many parts
'of the district. Rights to mine coal on
public lands for private use can be had
from the government at a few cents a
ton. Timber for private use can also
be cut on public lands.
HARVEST SCENE ON OUR LANDS,
Marvelous Yields '
on the Indian Head
The following yields were made last year
at the Dominion Experiment Farm:
WHEAT 71 varieties tested; days to mo
ture, 1U3 to 1U8; yields ranged from 62 to 67
bushels to the acre.
BARLEY 30 varieties tested: days to ma
ture, 88 to 93; yields ranged from 69 to 68
bushels to the acre.
OATS 3 varieties tested; days to ma
ture, 69 to 103; yields ranged from 130 to
147 bushels to the acre.
PEAS 67 Via-letles tested; days to ma
ture, 103 to 113, yields ranged from 58 to 66
bushels to the acre.
FODDER CORN-34 varieties tested;
planted In May and cut In September
height from 127 to 138 Inches; yield ranged
from 24 to 36 tons to the acre.
MANGELS 25 varieties tested; planted
In May and pulled In October; yield ranged
from 913 to 1,023 bushels to the acre.
TURNIPS29 varieties tested; planted In
May and pulled In October; yield ranged
from 1,155 to 1,368 bushels to the acre.
CARROTS 20 varieties tested; yields
ranged from 413 bushels to 429 bushels to
POTATOES S9 varieties tested: planted
In May and feathered In October; yields
ranged from 651 to 616 bushels to the acre.
The, test plots were all uniform In size and
the yields were not the result of luck or
chance, but of Intelligent cultivation. These
experiments show the possibility of the
Saskatchewan soil under proper cultivation.

Two different railways are already in
our territory, with both main lines and
branches, and new lines are projected.
Two transcontinental railways will run
through our country in the next year.
We will secure for all parties wish

good for the round trip. Information
as to special reduced rates on settlers'
effects in carloads, or less than carloads,
will be furnished on application. At
the present time the remarkably low
rate of 35 per car is made from St.

The seasons are milder than in the
Red river valley uid latitudes further
east. It is pleasant in summer, with
more hours of sunshine to mature crops
than in the states south of the boundary,
and no hot winds to burn the crops,
while the winters are no colder and not
as variable as in the Northwestern
states. The snowfall is light.
