The Future of Great Possibilities.
tv*. Some Idea of the great wealth that the Western Canada farmer had In view a few years ago Is now being real ized. The amount received from the sale of wheat, oats, barley,s flax and rye in 1917 was $270,000,000, while the sales or live stock at Winnipeg alone netted $40,000,000 additional. Of this sum hogs alone gave over eleven mil lion dollars. The increases at Calgary and Edmonton were over 6^4 million dollars. This money, so easily earned, Is be ing spent in Improvements in farm property, purchasing additional land, buying tractors, automobiles, and im proving home conditions, providing electric light, steam heat, new furni ture, pianos, buying Victory bonds, paying up old debts, etc. Over five hundred tractors were sold In Southern Alberta in 1917. One Implement agent reports that the in crease in his business in 1917, over that of 1916, was equal to the total business in 1915. It is the same story all over the country. And it is not this evidence alone which proves the advancement and growth of the three prairie provinces, but the large In crease In the number of settlers the Improvement in the extent of the cul tivated arens and agricultural produc tion the increase In value of which over 1916 was $77,000,000. This wonderful progress that has beefl made in agriculture In Western Canada is but the beginning which marks the future of the greatest agri cultural country on the continent, showing a future of great possibilities. There are millions of acres yet un tllled, and of land as good as any of that which is now giving Its owners a return of from twenty to thirty dollars an acre, figures that in many cases represent the cost of the land, with all .cultivation costs included. It Is true that the cost of production has in creased during the past few years, but the price of the product has also In creased to a figure which leaves a large balance to the credit of the pro ducer.
