1,300 acres, making a gross return of $47,000 ioi this year's crop. Shortly after Mr. Milnes sold this wheat it advanced to 90c a bushel. Had he

WE ARE NOT HANDLING LAND ON COMMISSION. ALL THE LANDS THAT WE OFFER FOR SALE ARE LANDS THAT WE OWN, and
we are in a position to give our customers abetter deal than the concerns who are merely handling land on a commission basis. We are the ONLY
COMPANY HANDLING SOUTHERN ALBERTA FARM LANDS THAT OWN THE LANDS THEY ARE OFFERING FOR SALE.
We have sold more land in Southern Alberta in the past year than all the concerns operating in Western We have tn^n ten
as many people over the Soo Line railroad to Southern Alberta than any company operating over that line of road. The proposition we have to
offer must be all right, and the treatment our patrons receive must be satisfactory, otherwise we would not have this enormous business.
r'i SSM,
There are only two months of this season's business left. We will discontinue our excursions on the 1st of December. Cannot'you arrange
to go with us during Octoberl^^™^

We have bought and sold over-200,000 acres of land in the Lethbridge district since March 1, 1906. Our sales have all been r""d? at retail
and would average about 400 acres. There are hundreds of people in South Dakota, principally in Brown, Marshall, Roberts and Spink Counties,
who have been out on our Special Cars during the past yepr. Not all of them have bought, but a large percentage did. We made over 100 wnlw
in the counties mentioned. Everyone who has been out with us, we believe, will speak a good word for the country and of the treatment received
at our hands.
