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 slx-year old fruit bsaring 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 2.TXW 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 farms in other countries are netting the own- ers suth profits annually on the price tKey actually paid for the land? We invite comparisons. Do a little figuring for yourself. The climate of THE ARROW LAKE DISTRICT is admirably adapted to the growth of vegetation. The win- ters are so short and mild, that semi- tropical fruits, figs for example, can be successfully grown. The soils of this valley are a com- bination 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 elements 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 Union, East of the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is moreover now recognized as the orchard of the Em- pire. .It has the soil, the climate and it will have the people. NOTE.

That our lands were with a view to irrigation, should it found necessary, and can "ba irrigatedI at a very small expense.
