He was Indeed young, for bnu yet to learn that not to disillusion the girl, but to conform as much as possible to her Sdeals, was the sorest way to win her favor, and his vanity surely would have received a blow had not David Cable at that moment come out of tuft doorway across... the aide- walk, pausing for a moment to con- verse with the innu >vbo accompanied him. The girl's face lighted with pleasure and relief, but the young man regarding uneasily the countenance of the general manager of tbe Pacific, Lakes and Atlantic Railroad company, saw (bat he was tired and drawn. It was hot the keen, alert ex- pression that had been the admiration of every one: something vital seemed to be missing, although he could not have told what if was.

Nothing improves the appearance of a. resi- dence more than paint and yet today in this city there'are scores of homes that know not .the pi-esence of paint. Why should this be? Even the farm- er, the progressive' at. any rate, paints his barn. Jt would appear that we have in this city some peo- ple who do not give a rip whether the city looks decent or not.

WHAT IS LAND WORTH In Washington, IMPROVED FRUIT LAND brings from to par 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 haVfe your land improved to six-year old fruit bearing or- chard, for to per acre. We have experienced prchardists to do 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 wili 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 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. win- ,ters are so short and mild, that semi- 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 ail 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 Jthey 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'wiil have the people. NOTE Our ...contracts provide for twelve months in which to fiqaliy se- lect your land. We improve your property, if you wish it. Buy your home now while prices are low. They will never be lower and will certainly be higher in a very short time. 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 residents of the country, who understood conditions necessary for .profitable fruit .culture, and who were at the same time fa- miliar with the climate and soil con- ditions of the country. That, at the same time our .lands were selected they had practically 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 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 is not required. .That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in small 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 selling on COMMIS- SION. We own our lands and are interested in satisfying our customers. Write us for full particulars and literature. TV ARROW LAKE ORCHARDS LETHBRIDGE ALBERTA ;
