RETURNS FROM CANADA
Mike Sand of Buckman and Geo. Poser Jr of Pierz returned
last week from a pleasure and visiting trip to their children, Mr and Mrs Joseph Sand in Rich Prairie, Saskatchewan, Canada. Mr. Sand reports as follows: "Jos. H. has a good piece of land and is doing well. On his farm is the only flowing well within a radius of twenty miles. Everybody is busy breaking. The soil is a heavy black loam with clay subsoil. There are not many stones in the neighborhood of Gull Lake and Rich Prairie. Grain looks better than here and is about two weeks further advanced. Flax was in blossom the first days of last week. I found the country a hundred percent better than it has been pictured out to me. A good farmer and a good manager will make money in Canada; and a poor one will starve there as well as here. It depends on the man behind the plow.
There are no creameries in the Gull Lake country. I picked out 320 acres of land adjoining Joseph's farm which I intend to buy this fall. I say any young man who is ambitious and in good health will make no mistake in going to Canada."
