HIGEfilEIIT 1(1 WESTERN GMDA FARMLAND PRICES Stories of phenomenal advancement and prosperity In Western Canada have been told the reading public forJ eonie year past. The stories were told when there were hundreds of thou sands of seres of splendid land adja cent to railways and projected lines, which could be had on the payment of mere SIO entry fee, and under culti ration and living conditions. As was prophesied then, the day has come when these are few. There are still available thousands of these ; they are some distance now from the railways. The land Is as good as ever, but plo- , peering conditions will li;ive chunged. A great many are still taking adven ing of this free offer from the govern- tupul The story was told when good lands near lines of railway could be bough tf or from $3 to $10 per acre and the prophecy made that these prices would double In a few years, for the Intrinsic value was far more than that That day has come more quickly than expected. The Immense crops of grain that could be raised has brought about the change, and the demand for low priced lands with maximum re turns has prompted the keen pur chaser as well ss the owner of higher priced land from which no greater re turn could be looked for. rrlces of land In Western Canada are still ad vancing, and will continue to advance until, of course, the limit Is reached when returns will warrant no further Increase. That day Is not far distant. But, In the meantime, there are large tracts of land owned by land compa nies and private Individuals that have not felt the advance that has been shown In other districts. " The oppor tunity to purchase these should not be lost sight of, and If there are those amongst the readers of this article, which Is authorized by the Canadian government, who wish cheap land, uch lands as pnxJace from 25 to 40 bushels per acre and will pay for themselves out of one year's crop, ad vantage should be taken of the present opportunity.

Near Blackle, Alberta, be perates 3.- 100 acres of wheat land. lie has Just purchased an additional 1100 acres near Cardston, In Southern Alberta. His Personal credit enabled him to finance this deal In Calgary la a little over three hours. The ranch Just pur chased Is a fully equipped stock and grain ranch. At the present time It carries a thousand head of cattle and several hundred horses, and Is fully equipped with buildings, machinery, corrals, sheep sheds, dipping vats, etc. That Is a story from one district Let us select one from a district some hun dred or more miles from that "Peter A. Klassen, who recently moved to Herbert. Bask from Kansas, has purchased a section of prairie land In the Ilinsboro district about 24 miles northwest of Herbert for which he paid $12,000 cash. lie Is erecting tem porary buildings to Uve In while put ting the place In cultivation, and this summer plans to erect good buildings on the farm and equip It for a home. Mr. Klassen recently sold his 80-acre farm In Kansas for $13,000 and Is In vesting the proceeds In Canada." With the proceeds of the sale of his land In Kansas, this farmer purchased in Saskatchewan a piece eight times as large as he had previously been farm ing, and had a balance with which to purchase equipment stock, etc., of $3,- 000. Moreover as land In Saskatche wan may be expected to yield twice as much grain per acre, he will be able to produce sixteen times as much as formerly. The average value of farm land for the whole of Canada, Including land Improved and unimproved, together with dwelling houses, barns, stables and other farm buildings, Is approxi mately $44 per acre as compared with $41 In 1910, according to the latest re port of the Census and Statistics branch at Ottawa. The average value of land In the Fralrie Provinces Is follows : Manitoba $31-00 Saskatchewan 20.00 Alberta 26.70 It Is the low prices at which land can be obtained In Western uanaaa which Is rendering this country such an important factor In the production of foodstuffs fet the present time. It Is enabling men who have been farm ing small areas In older districts to take up and farm with the same capi tal areas not only many times as great butVhlch are also capable of produc ing considerably larger crops to the sere.

Tt Is satd to be Impossible for anyone wno Has seen only the common mute swans floating about In the artificial lakes of city parks to Imsgine the grandeur of a flock of the great whist lers In their wild state. One govern ment scientist attached to a bureau In Washington, says that the sight is one of the most Impressive in nature. As the great birds rise Into the air It seems as If sn aerial regatta were be ing sailed overhead, the swans, each wlthta wing spread of six or seven feet moving like yachts under full solL . Once the swans are under way, their speed Is amaalng, nearly 100 miles sn hour, and that too, with no apparent effort, for the slow wing motion Is very deceiving. Their en durance Is as surprising ss their speed, for they are said to travel 1,000 miles without alighting. Cutlcura Stops Itching.
