\ ERA, the beautiful Spokane valley orchard and garden district,
with its modern conveniences, an abundance of pure, SOFT

RAILWAY FREIGHT SERVICE twice daily, in fact, modern in
every respect, is desirous of increasing its number of good, indus
trious citizens. And, in order to do so, Mr. McDonald comes for
ward with the above 100 per cent guarantee that rings like a bell.
Under these conditions we have taken over the proposition and
would like to have the necessary number of applicants get in com
munication with us at once. The price is right and the terms are
right to the right people. No trees or rocks to move. The soil is
ready for the plow and the water ready to be released. No such
thing as crop failure. The land adjoining, under same system, same
soil and elevation, is yielding $500 to $1000 per acre. Everybody
there is not only satisfied, but happy. We allow you 2\ years in
which to decide whether or not you are satisfied, and it is put in
writing by Mr. McDonald, Secretary and Treasurer, and recorded.
You know YOU can't lose, and Mr. McDonald has satisfied himself
by years of experimenting with the land, that HE can't lose. So if
neither he nor you can lose, the result will necessarily be a happy
conclusion. He is willing to take a chance. Are you?
