Government Lands in Northwest
Still Open to Entry.

The Northern Faciflc Mat offer
advantage and opportunity to ths
homeseeker and farmer that ara not ex
celled. The group of states referred to
embraces North Dakota. Montana, Idaho,
Washington and Oreaon. There still re
mains government land that are open
to homrrtrad entry, and there are vast
areas of rich agricultural land that are
for aale at low prices, offering opportun
ities adapted to the me. ten and tastes of
all classes of agriculturists. The lr
rig able lands which are already supred
with, water, and also tho.? which aro as
yet unimproved, wait the farmer, or
ehardlst and gardener. Lands that are
not capable of Irrigation but which arc
capable of profitable cultivation iir
modern me; hods, and which have been
proved capable of a very high and profit
able productiveness, can be had In large
or amall tracts at the will of the settler,
ana In proportion to the i-apltal desired
to bt invested. Unimproved, do-forested
lands, which are possessed of as fertile
oil aa any on the North American con
tinent are available to homeseekera at
prices that are little more than nominal.
Farm lands that have been improved to
greater or lea extent can be purchased
at very reasonable prices and on terms
to suit almost any desire of the pur
chaser. Improved lands are often held
by parties who own large tracts and who
for various reasons are. not able to
adequately cultivate so large area.
Many such land holders are offering
their foldings on terma and In parcels
to suit purchasers.
Satisfied, happy and prosperous farm
ers, stock raiser, orchardlsts and gard
eners, from all parts of the United States
and Northern Europe, are living In
various parts of the states of Montana,
Idaho, Washington and Oregon, who
have been attracted by the success of
other settlers whom they had known
and whom they followed to the promising
fields that these states offer. People
from any atate, or from any country in
Northern Europe, can find opportunities
to secure for themselves desirable homes
In communities made up largely of
settlers from their own state or country,
and often from their own neighborhood.
People desiring to settle In communities
where any particular religious faith or
nationality predominate can with little
Inquiry generally find what they want.
Persons who are ambitious to pursue
any particular kind of farming or to
practice any form of Intensive agricul
ture. Can be directed to localities where
the climate and soil conditions are such
as are required, where transportation
facilities are aa good as could be desired,
and where markets, the best In the world,
are within accessible distances for every
manner of product.
The demand for all dairy and poultry
products, small fruits and vegetables,
has never been anywhere nearly supplied
by the local production. Farm food pro
ducts are every year carried to the cities
and towns of these states from the cen
tral states of the Mississippi valley and
eastern states, to supply the local demand.
Bee King Causes the
Crowds to Wonder
Prof. Frank Odeil, the King of the
Bees, has proven his right to the title by
entering a screened cage at the Coliseum
and uncrating a swarm of bees. But he
did not uncrate them and then walk out
of the cage. He scooped them up In his
bare hands, opened his shirt front and
put a handful against his bare skin, took
off his hat and filled It with the buzzing
insects, put them In his mouth and per
formed a series of teats that would have
meant death from poisonous stings to
anyone else.
And all the time the professor was play
ing with his "subjects" he talked, ex
plaining the life of the bees 'and accred
iting them with more intelligence than
the common Insect possesses. At the
conclusion of hla demonstrations, which
were witnessed by hundreds of people, he
explained It all by phsychology. saying
that the confusion accompanying hla
rough handling of the beea caused them
to' congregate into group and "discuss
what had happened," but the crowd, se
Ing that the bees were not always "con
tused," la still wondering.

Could Lay Pin In Cracks. Four Long
Years of Eczema. Only Relief in
Scratching. Used One Set
of Ctrticura Remedies.
Hands Entirely Well.
"I Pn truthfully say Cut lea ra Reme
dies have) cured me of four long years
of ecsema. About four years ago I
noticed some little pimples coming on
my little finger, and not giving It any
attention, it soon became worso and
spread all over my hands. If I would
have them In water for a long time,
they would burn like flro and large
crocks would come. I could lay a pin
In thorn. After using all the salves I
could think of, I went to three different
doctors, but all did tarn no good. The
only relief I got was scratching.
"So after hearing so much about ths
wonderful Cuticura Remedies, I pur.
ofAsed on complete set, and after using
them three days my hands were much
better. To-day my hands are entirely
well, one sot being oil I used." (Signed)

Invades Wyoming the first great
man he hears about is Prof. B. C

he will be fid that ths professor
has accomplished the marvelous
fest of cross breeding the prairie
dog with alfalfa and produced ai
edible muskrat. That might be
so, but It Isn't.

formed wonders, and he has cmne
to be known as the Bui hank of
Wyoming. He Is at the Land
