What would you think if you were nicely settled on a ten-acre Fruit Farm, where all kinds of Fruit will grow, and you can dispose of same, making enormous profit each year A superb climate. Water delivered on your farm in pipes under natural pressure, got by water being piped from a lake at a great height. An assured fact that an Electric Car Service will be running right past this land within twelve months, a direct line be- tween Vernon and Kelowna, so that a fruit farmer on this prso- perty can ship by electric line to railway or load in cars at the C.P.R. slip dock at Okanagan Centre. This is the proposition we are selling. For full information apply to The city did wno bought there knew it was a lake. Aid. Hutton and King maintained The Letlibridge Weyburn Realty Go.
