When, Where and How to Seoure "Western
Do not go West with a family, unle.s"
you have money enough to make a fair
Do not borrow money to go West
Tho majority of those wo have met in
their Wostern homes, who have failed,
have been those who came on borrowed
money, or without enough funds to en
miru h Hend-off.

Take as little baggage and as fow

ey for freight, and in addition are apt
to bo an incumbrance in a new home.
If you are ablo to do so, you bettor
first go out and explore before taking
your family with you!
Do not attempt to explore too much.
We have met pooplo beyond the Mis
Hotiri river who had tisited nearly all
tho land grants, and the more thoy had
traveled, the more unsettled thoy wore

Decide upon your cliniato and local
ity, and then select your lnnd. If you
wait too lonp, you are apt to become
very much unsettled.
Do not go West if you have' a sick
family. Change of climate may benefit
them, but it is not worth while to take
the chances. .
Do not go West expecting not to bo
homesick for your mountaiu scenory,
your forests and your streams, which
present such a contrast to tho monotony ,
of endless prairies. It may be . very
lonely at first, but you will soon plant
your own trees, have pleasant surround
ings and near neighbors. ' ,
Do not go expecting; to become rich
immediately. Several years of good
crops may bo required to placo you rin '
II you are a clerk on a small salary in
tho city, and have a few hundred dollars
ahead, give up your clerkship and
strike out for the Western lands. There
is no very groat amount of experience
required in cultivating theso prairies.

your funds are comparatiTely . limited,
go on still further, where u eood fc&ds
