MANITOBA
AND
The Northwest Territory
The finest Prairie Lnads in America are
to be found in Manitoba and the North-
western Territories, capable of easy and
rapid cultivation, producin abundance of
food for cattle, and affording every facility
for agricultural productions of all kinds.
The total area of lands fit for cultivation
in this region is estimated at 375,184,000
acres, of which 10,660,369 acres are already
surveyed. The emigration from Europe,
and immigration from the populated parts of
America to this country is rapidly increas-
ing, owing to the great advantages which
prairie land,
Easily Cultivated and Rapidly Productive
Has over any other class of land for farming
purpose and agricultural labor.
