In the first case, a limited number of farms in selected colonies, with distinctive military names, will )e improved, previous to occupation, j by the erection of a house, bara, and fence, the provision of water supply and the breaking of 40 acres. Live- stock, implements and seed grain will, where necessary, be provided; In the assisted colonization scheme, In which an almost unlimited amount of and will 'be available, farms will be :irst selected by ttie intending'colon-1 sts, and then improved by them with; assistance from the comjsmy in the way ot advances of build-as and fenc- ing" material, livestock, implements, and seed grain.
