i9U Back You
If or a Farm
(Privata Car Excursion Tuesday, Aug. lSKh.)
IF YOU WILL COME ou my excursion I will aid you ia every possible
way to investigate aiy lands and my proposition. The more you know
of It the better you will like it. This colonizing of the Swigart Tract has
become such a big movement and there is so much, to it that it is im
possible to slve anything lika a clear conception of it here.
YOUR INTERESTS and mine do
not end with your purchase. When
w Join hands I and my large,
hustling land organization and
mora than a thousand men who
have already bought are behind
the plan of settllr-g and develop
Chlcago. The principal obstacle
lng this Michigan district so near
we have 'to. combat Is skepticism
on account of the low price of the
land. Because of ths high prices
of most things nowadays people
make the mistake of judging by
price rather than by worth. How
ever, every year the price go up
by substantial progress. Every
settler who goes on hi land makes
the land adjoining his that much
more valuable. Therefore, the first
step for you to take Is to go and
see the land, and especially now,
while you can aee the growing
crop?. Pull yourself out of tha
rut for a few days and come with
us on the short trip.
JUST NOW we can show you
crops of alfalfa, vetch, rye. clover,
wheat beans, cow-peaa, soy-beans,
timothy, potatoes, all vegetables
equal to and in many case better
Uiaa the average on $175 lands la
tho neighboring states. Our lands
are selling for 110 to 135 per acre
and moat of them for $17 per acre,
with 60.000 acres to select from. I
am selling on eauy terms 7 year
time. $10 to $50 down on 40 acres.
I mak these easy terms because
of my confidence In the lands.
They will pay back their cost to
the buyer quicker than any other
lands within twice the distance
from the big markets of Chicago,
Milwaukee, Grand Rapids and De
troit. It is not Ilk going Into
debt for something you use up or
that depreciates on your hands. It
la an investment of your saving
that constantly grows' In value.
DO YOU NEED to bolster up your
confidence In land values? Do you
know of any good farm laad that
la rot advancing In values? Every

farming. On the farm la the best
place to be to reduce the cost of
living, which is still soaring. A
report has just been made by the
government's general supply com
mittee on contracts let for supplies
for the departments at Washington
for the fiscal year beginning July
1st. and it shows that the cost of
groceries and household supplies
has increased, 17 per cent as com
pared with last year, lumber 10'
per cent and fuel and ice 7 per
cent There are many possibilities
for you in the ownership of a piece
of land, to farm it yourself, to make
it your home, to rear your family
in health, for investment to rent
for an income, etc. Ia one in
stance a maa who bought a piece
of land ia the Swigart Tract for
investment because of the rise ia
values within a five years' period
was able to mortgage hia land for
three times what it cost aim, thus
.giving him capital at aa opportune
moment for another investment
A PURCHASE NOW will give you
the benefit of all the pioneer work
which has been done and you will
be in time for a still greater rise
In values. The wagon roads, rail
roads, markets, schools, churches,
stores, telephones, are already her
and the number of settlers going
on their lands grows greater every
season. Send for my literature and
a large map. Post yourself and
then come and verify the farts to
your own satisfaction.
