  As good physical health is the first advantage to be secured
in any country, so does the climate of this constitute its princi-
pal charm. The atmosphere is dry and pure, and the weather
remarkably uniform. No devastating epidemics have ever visit-
ed our county. There is no ague and fever, and billious and
pulmonary diseases are very rare. Our summers are as delight-
ful as can be wished for, and the winters, though cold, are not so
severe that one accustomed to any climate in the temperate
zones is compelled to abandon out-door avocations. The atmos-
phere being dry, the same degree of cold is not felt so keenly as
in damp climates. Cattle, sheep and horses are less subject to
disease, and winter more easily than in the chilly damps found
further south. During the winter we have uniform and pleasant
weather, and good sleighing, while the farmer can work every
day hauling produce to the lumber camps, getting fencing or
wood, (which only costs the labor of getting it out) hauling out
manure or preparing for the spring's work, which can be com-
menoed as soon as the frost is out of the ground, which gives a
decided advantage over those sections where the farmer is com-
pelled to wait three or four weeks for the low, wet, heavy soil
to dry before he is able to commence operations.
