In Washington, IMPROVED FRUIT LAND brings from to per acre. We sell better lands unimproved at to per acre, according to location. You can make a good living and pay for the planting and cultivating of your orchard, by growing garden truck between the trees. OR You can have your land improved to a six-year old fruit bearing or- chard, for to per acre. We have experienced orchardists to do this work and charge per acre for same, which includes clearing, cultivating, supplying and planting two-year old trees (your selection) and the subsequent care of same for four years." Do these prices appear high to you? An Apple Orchard in full bearing, yields from 500 to boxes per acre, and nets the grower from to per box, hence if fruit land will yield a profit of even per acre, that profit is equal to ten per cent, on or ONE HUN- DRED AND SIXTY PER CENT, on the actual cost price. How many of the best farmt in other countries are netting the own- ers su-th profits annually on the price actually paid for the land? We invite comparisons. Do a little figuring for yourself.

We do not claim to have the only Fruit Lands in British Columbia, but what we wish to explain, That- our lands were personally se- lected by two old of the country, who understood for profitable fruit culture, and who were at tho tamo time fa- miliar with the climate and toil con. ditions of the country. That, at the tamo time our were selected they had practically the choice of thel country. That were chosen for the A< t_ wmiig, onu WM 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 view to irrigation, should it be found necessary, and can be irrigated at a very small expense. That since that time it has been satisfactorily demonstrated that Ir- rigation a not required. That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in small isolated tracts Uhere 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 selling on COMMIS- SION. We own our lands and are interested fn satisfying pur customers. Write us for full particulars and literature.
