The amount of the loan is added to the purchase price of the land is to be repaid iu installments extended over 20 years. The character of the house and barn to be ceded on the farm may he selected by the applicant from various standard plans provided by the company. A purchaser is required to occupy the land with his family within six months after the completion of improvements and must, reside there continuously for five years, during which he must cultivate certain portions of each quarter section. He must also maintain during that time at least three milch rows for each quarter section and must, insure the buildings against fire. Cutler the farm loan scheme, farms have been equipped with buildings up to October, 1917. Ready-Made Farms In 1009, the Canadian Pacific inaugurated an improved, farm policy. During that year a number of farms were equipped with a house and barn, a well and a fence enclosing the property. In addition, GO acres on each were broken and seeded to crops.

Those desiring to do so are permitted to repay their indebtedness or settle for the entire amount at any time before the expiration of the 20 years following the purchase. Applicants must, directly or through authorized agents,  'make a personal inspection of the land they propose to buy. All minerals contained in the property, including gas and petroleum, are reserved by the company. Purchase Land Without a Loan Purchasers of land without a loan are required to'enter Into occupation within six months from the date bf purchase and must undertake the construction of a house costing at least ?350, and a barn costing not less than $200 and capable of accommodating four horses and four cows. Settlers must Insure their buildings against loss from- fire and must sink a suitable well, fence Die land, and break and crop a portion of each quarter-section. Daring the entire period of occupancy each purchaser must, undertake to keep at least three milch cows. Instead of cultivating the land, the purchaser may agree to maintain on j the property a certain number of horses, cattle, sheep or hogs, which must be his unencumbered property. Sale of Farm With $2,000 Loan The sale of land with a $2,000 loan for improvements has recently been limited to irrigated lands in parcels not exceeding 320 acres per application. Applicants for lands under thi� plan must be married men having agricultural experience and must have Britain and located on these ready-made farms. Under this arrangement a settler may proceed to earn an income on his farm as soon as he oc-1 cupies it. The farms are sold on a 20-year-payment basis under the terms of which the price of the improvements is added to the price of the land. At first this type of farm was established only in Alberta, but the policy has been extended to include Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. ^ Farms for Returned Soldiers Tho Canadian Pacific also has prepared plans designed to encourage returned soldiers to take up farms. The lands set aside for this purpose are of two kinds, improved farms and "assisted colonization" farms. The former are included in selected colonies with distinctive military names, which have been improved by the erection pf a house, a barn and fences, the cultivation of a certain area of land, and flie provision of a water supply. Each colony will contain a "central control farm in charge of a superintendent, who will supervise the work of all col-, onists. Central control farms will be used for purposes of demonstration and as supply depots for male livestock, ant^Tor implements to be used by tho colonists in common, as follows: One drill, one mower, one binder and one rake for three farms. There will be only a limited number of improved farms available, but land to an almost unlimited extent can be provided under the assisted colonization scheme. Under this plan farms must be selected by the intend* ing colonist and then Improved by him with assistance from the company in the way of advances of building and fearing material, livestock, implements and seed grain.

In certain districts the company stilly has land which is sold without requiring 1hc purchaser to settle thereon. When land is sold without settlement conditions, payment is extended over a period of 10 years only. Improvements Made by Development Branch In addition to constructing 200 buildings on farm loan lands in 1913-the first year after the adoption of the loan farm policy-the development branch did the following work in the interests of settlers: 274 miles of fencing erected. 128 wells dug, at a maximum charge of $300 to settlers, althajngh in many cases, the cost to the company was more. 2,200 acres cleared. 8,400 Bcres of virgin soil broken. #5,000 acres ploughed or backset. 30.500 acres disced. 13.000 acres harrowed. 5.S0O acres needed. 2,000 acres harvested. 117 houses built. 117 barns. 1 piggery and lti granaries built; l2\ buildings moved. On company demonstration farms 11 houses. I'Z barns,. 12 piggeries, It poultry houses and 12 dairies were built, while five wells were drilled and two windmills erected. In 1010 tho development branch of the department erected under its loan policy, lfi houses, eight barns, five granaries and five chicken houses, put up 12 miles of fencing, sunk 12 wells, constructed one concrete cistern and cultivated 530 acres. In addition, the following improvements were undertaken in connection with the farms being prepared for returned soldiers: 100 houses, 100 barns, 32 implement sheds, li*0 miles of fencing and 2* wells. The major part of this work was completed In lftlfi and the balance in 1917. Arrangements are now being made to install cisterns on 75 of these farms, which will be supplied with irrigation water. Twenty-five of these cisterns have been completed. Irrigation Tracts The Canadian Pacific has two large irrigation tracts in Alberta, the land of which it is disposing of to settlers. The Lethbridge tract is the pioneer irrigation undertaking on a large scale in Western Canada. It was started in 1000 and was acquired by the Canadian Pacific from the Alberta-Railway and Irrigation Company in 1S12. It draws an unfailing supply of water from the St. Mary river, which la fed by the snows and glaciers of the Ttocky mountains. Canals totaling 115 miles in length serve an area of about 100,000 acres. The tract, is well situated with reference to transportation. One railway line connects Lethbridge, AHa.f with the international boundary and other lines traverse the center of the district and extend through the westerly portion. The company's other irrigation tract is the largest individual project of its kind on the American continent. It contains about 3,000,000 acres served by two separate water systeins, the oidest of which Is In the western part of the block. Water for this section Is diverted from the Bow river at a point just inside the caatern limits of the city of Calgary. Main and secondary canals and distributing ditches, totaling 1.600 miles in length, supply water to approximately 220,000 acres. �Construction of this system was commenced in 1908 and completed in 1910 and the first water waa used In 1&07. The eastern part of the block is served by a great dam at Alta., which was begun in completed in 1914.

Of these 28,050 are permanently employed and the remainder are men tinttt for work. In addition 2.~i,000 German civilians and four thousand Austrians are interned. Between 1500 and 2000 of these are out on license for various forms of work and the rest are ''A useless and expensive incubus." ? v v ? ? A Free Prescription You Can Have Filled and Ute r,t Home.

A lady who used it says: "The atmosphere seemed hazy with or without glasses, but after using- this prescription for lfi days �very thing seems clear. I can read even fine print without, glasses."
