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.
Thus his conditions are very different
from those living on the plains where
rainfall is uncertain, where lumber must
always be hauled from the town lumber
yards at high prices, where fuel is scarce
and where neighbors are far distant and
advantages of civilization but scant
indeed.
