The Philippine islands have thousands of thrifty home steaders. The above photograph shows a pic ture of a Christian Filipino homestead er and his family i.ear Plklt, Cotabato province, Mindanao, P. I. Five years Ago he was a cab driver working- for low wages at Cebu. a thickly populated city. He went into the then wilderness of Mindanao, planted hemp and cocoa nuts, paid for his land and has be come wealthy. Thousands of similar Instances could be cited. One Mindanao homesteader Is worth $200,000. The Philippine government Is encour aging the .immigration of Filipinos from the thickly populated sections in to Mindanao. This is the second larg est tf the islands of the archipelago. It Is still sparsely settled, although it Is one of the richest and most pro ductive Islands In the world. Many Americans have established planta tions there and become rich. Filipinos are using the stories of the many successful Filipino homesteaders as an argument for Independence. They make the point that a people that can go out 'into a tropical wilderness with no capital save their patience, perse verance and energy and win homes 'jt themselves, have the necessary stamina to run their own affairs. j INSOLVENT NOTICE.
