our new north. There are settlers in every township. Roads are largely laid out and the newcomer will have but few privations to suffer. If he find the right kind of lands, he will soon have a farm on which he can grow crops of some kind every year without fail. He is sure of markets. He is certain of lumber at reasonable prices, of abundance of fire- wood, of pure water and of living in a region where there is no malaria or other diseases incident to the soil or climate.
