Wt sell better lands unimproved at 1100 to 4I2S per acre, according to location. You can make a food living and pay for the planting and cultivating of your orchard, -by growing garden truck between the trees.

We have experienced orchardists to do this work and charge f200 per acre for same, which includes clearing, cultivating, tupplying and planting two-year old -trees (your selection) and the subsequent of same for four years. Do those prices appear high to you? Arr Apple Orchard in full bearing, from 600 to boxes par -acre, and nets the "grower from f 1.09 to per box, hence if fruit land will yield a profit of even per acre, that profit is_aqual to tan per cent, on or ONE HUN- DRED AND SIXTY PER CENT, on 1909, the actual cost price.

Thi climate of THE ARROW LAKE DISTINCT is admirably adapted to the growth of vegetation. The ters are so short and mild, that semi- tropical fruits, figs for example, can be successfully grown. The soils of this valley are a ,binatlon of volcanic ash, sand from the disintegration of igneous rocks, silt from old lake beds, and humus from, the decay of vegetation. They comprise all the necessary to plant life, being from two to three hundred-feet in depth, and are of inexhaustible fertility. says the New York Wall Street Journal, "are stubborn things and they won't down." .British Co- lumbia possesses lumber resources, greater than all the states of the Uhion, East of tho Rotxy Mountains- British Columbia is moroovor now recognized as the orchard of the Em- pire. .It has the soil, the climate and it will have tho people.

They will naver be" kwer and will certainly bo a, very short time. We do not claim to have tho only- Fruit Lands in British Columbia, but what we wish to explain, That our lands personally ee- iected by two old residents of the country, who understood conditions necessary for profitable fruit culture, and who wore at the same time fa- miliar with the cljmate and'soil con- ditions of the country. That, at the same time our lands, wers selected they had the choice of the country. That our lands were chosen for the purpose of fruit-growing, and was in their, opinion, the best obtainable. That due" consideration was given to sections requiring irrigation and those said not to require it. That our lands were chosen with a Irrigation, should it be found necessary, and can bo Irrigated at a very small expense. That since that time it haa boon satisfactorily demonstrated that Ir- rigation is not required. v That transportation facilities and convenioncesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in smalt isolated tracts where schools and churches could not be maintained, was carefully avoided. That we believe, there are no bet- ter fruit lands in British Columbia, than we are offering at the present market price. ,__ We are not telling en COMMIT SI ON. We own our lands and are Interested in satisfying our customers. Write us fer full particulars and literature. JANE CABLE BAKU McCUTCHtON. wrly Etc. Cojfrialtt, ISM. by Dodd. "Company.
