LIFE IN NORWAY.

Norway has a population of only
eighteen to the square mile ami is the
most thinly settled country iu Europe.
It has a rugged, mountainous surface,
narrow valleys and Immense barren
tablelands. The people prefer a coun
try life, are not prone to rush froiu
the farm to the city, and are healthy
and strong. Aluit two-thirds of the
entire population live upon the coast,
and there are no more daring and el
pert sailors and fishermen iu the world
than the venturesome sons of the old
vikings. The majority of the women
are of fair complexion, with flaxen hair
and blue eyes. Many of them are re
markably pretty, and they are decid
edly picturesque when dressed In na
There are public registry offices for
servant girls, who sign a contract for
six months- service. The average
wage earnings of Norway are said
to 1h only !?vs a year, and the average
expense of living is less than in any

This company owns 12,000 ares of rich tropical land Unrated in the state of Oaxaca, on the Isthmus of
Tebauntcpec. about midway between the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific ocean, and Is engaged in developing
it from a dense tropical forest In o a cultivated plantation, producing rubber, coffee, vanilla, cacao, rice, corn,
pineapples, bananas, oranges, le 110ns. limes, grape fruit. ctcoanuts. henequin. etc.. also raising and selling'
cattle, mules, horses, etc; cutting and milling the timber, consisting of mahogany, chicle, rapote. Spanish
cedar, mulato, etc., and marketing it as lumber, bridge and building timbers, railroad ties, etc.. .for which
there is' always ready sale.
This industry Is exceeding p'ofitable aud is an investment and not a speculation.
The Rock Island Tropical Plantation Company will seil its shares of preferred stock for cash, or on
monthly payments, each share representing an interest in the property equivalent to one acre; and will clear
and plant one acre In some tropical product and care for the same to the end of seven years from the date
of the contract, and will continuj the care of same after the expiration of the seen year contract. Harvest

thereafter when all shares shall have ntta ned cqual'ty. to continue in care of the whole property for the

The preferred stock holders, and holders of contracts for stock, are fully protected agaiust loss In case
of lapse of payments, or in case of death. They are granted a suspension of payment for 3. 0 or 90 days.

There can be no "freeze out' of the small stock holder.
SHARES ARE SOLD at the par value of $200 per share, on monthly pay
ments, as follows:
36 payments, at (2.50 each $ 90.00
22 payments, at $5.00 each 110.00
Or 6 per cent discount will be allowed for full cash payments, and interest at the rate of not less than G
per cent is guaranteed on all amounts paid In. and as much more as the profits of the business warrant.
Do you know of any recent failures In the lumber ami milling busim ss?
The guaranteed interest, together with other earnings, and the payment of $2..r.o per month for 5S months
will buy one share of stock, equaling one acre. An acre of such developed land can not be purchased for
$1,000 gold in Mexico.
Plantations in full bearing are not for sale at any price.
Interest will be paid annually, beginning Jan. 1. 190". All remittances made prior to that date will draw
interest from date of payment. Other plantations near our land have earned and paid S per cent and higher
annually during the development period.
