THE TIME la at liand when the young mon of today should begin
to look forward to their future prosperity, together with the
welfare of their country. The announcement of the building
?of the proposed railroad In Alaska, opening It up for settlement and
development, means tho construction of many homes and mercantile
i ? establishments. It Is the last great undovolopod portion of Uncle
Sam's public domain, which offers opportunities unequalled at the
1 present time.
Arc you aware of the fact that this country Is now entering'
an era of development which will take years to reach Its height;
furthermore, those who havo given .any thought to our natural re
sources know there are vast rcson-cB yet untouched, and In spite of
tho erroneous opinion that prevails throughout many parts of the
States, that Alaska has a cold and rigorous cllmafl?, the population
will Incroaso many times over what It Ib now.
?j Every man and woman Is Interested in having their money do
,! the greatest poslsble amount of work for them, and above all. nre
vitally Interested in securing absolute safety for the monoy invested.
You know how difficult it Is to find investment for small amounts
of money, that will bring large roturns. Wo can show you how- It
can bo done, with absolute safety..
Can you realise what this will mean for those who aro on the
ground floor ready to take advantage of tho opportunities as they
arise. Why not Investigate. We. will take pleasure In giving you
full information to Inquiries made.
