Having decided to devote my timeUo the development of Coaldale and District, I take'this means of acquainting the public of that fact. My long experience in the district should be of value to prospectiS'e puvchasevs.and I will endeavor to givfe satisfaction to both the seller and the purchaser. Having colonized the original Coaldale district I am naturally, well acquainted with the land and am in position to give accurate information as to values and general' conditions. Considerable land has changed hands in this district recently and some dissatisfaction has been expressed to me as to trie manner in which the transactions rjave been people have paid for Irrigated lands and have found to their sorrow that -.they" had not sufficient water rights, exorbitant commreswns., have been charged and land tied up {pr'sgecuklive'purposesi. These conditions are injurious .IcT tHe district _and work a hardship on its proper development. -Having been m the'district since the first ditch was made and expecting to stay here; for some: time yet arid having considerable property iii the district I am naturally intensely- 'interested that it be developed along the right lines, so it will bV to the advantage of investors to deal with me rather than outsiders who have no interests except the coirirnissions made on the transac-- interest will not stop at that the success of the purchaser depends my success and that of the whole district, and no be spared to see that he is satisfied. I know the exact water right on every quarter section in the entire district and would advise all prospective purchasers" to XNOW what they are getting 1 before buying. Realizing that the success of the. district depends upon reduc- ing, sortie of the large farms into small farms, I am requested by a large number of large land owners' to subdivide these holdings into small farms. These farms will be well imp'royed and "will be sold on Very reasonable''te'rmis "tesidents'i -When these'large farms are reduced and a family lives on every eighty or one hundred and sixty acres then the Coaldale District commence to come: into her own. My efforts will be directed to ihe bringing in of more people arid I solicit the cooperation of all land owners of the .district, mymg estayisHed good connections of tlie irrigated sections of -the Western States, I expect a steady experienced irrigation farmers into this district this year. >.'i; _ Coaldale will receive a great deal of publicity throughout the Irrigated districts of the United Slates this year. A general publicity campaign is on foot and will not stop until the name of The.GOAL- DALE DISTRICT is as familiar toMhe farmers" of the.Western States as is the Greeley District of Colorado.or other the Jrri'gatioi} Pistricts of V--'.'- Large farms must be reduced, the pfeople must be encouraged to locate is the first will'lolkm-.'when we.' have the people'to raise the products. The possibilities of the Coal- dale District have hardly been real development's yet to come. I vespectyiy refjuest that all land owners in the district who to reduce' tfieir holdings allow me to .dispose of them. I wili place actual residents the faims and will undertake to give sat- isfaction. By working with me you are assisting in'the development of ihr finest body of iirigatecl-lands to be found on the American DISTRICT. HARRY A. SUGGITT, Coaldale, Alberta.' ;
