LITTLE SASKATCHEWAN COLONY
Northwest Territory, British Dominion.
Dominion Steamship Company's Reserve
The Little Saskatchewan Colony was started into existence in 1874.
The land is undulation, well watered, its surface soil being a black
loam from fimve to eight feet deep, with clay subsoil.
It produces the finest of Mangolds, Swedes, Dutch Turnips, Potatoes,
Beets, Beans, Peas, Wheat, Oats, Barley, Hops, etcl
There is already founded a town called Rapid City; Flour Mill, Saw
Mill, Blacksmith's Shop, General Store, and many other building are
being erected.
At the Little Saskatchewan are the Postoffice and Government
Land Office.
From the Little Saskatchewan River Steamboats can go to
Winnipeg.
It is proposed to have a Railway to the Little Saskatchewan built
within three years.
Nearly six square miles of the Reserve have been taken up this year
by Emigrants from Scotland, North of Ireland, the Counties Durham,
Devon, Essex, Gloucester and Kent.
Thousands of farmers have settele this year on the banks of the
river, over an area of fifty miles.
The farms are in grass, bluffs of trees being picturesquely scattered
over them, providing the settlers with timber for fuel, fencing and
building purposes.
The land does not require years of toil to cut away the timber,
neither stumps grubbed out before planting; the sod can be ploughed
in the spring, seed sown and roots planted, and a crop gathered in the
autumn.
The land produces an inexhaustible supply of hay, and thousands of
cattle can be grazed. A large quantity of horses, cattle, sheep and
pigs are now brought to this country alive, proving that the market of
England is as much open to the Canadian farmer as the English.
The next party of the Colony, under the Charge of our Mr. Whel-
lams, who accompanied and located a number of settlers this year, will
leave Liverpool in one of the powerful Steamer of the Dominion Line
early next spring-the day and date hereafter to be fixed.
The route to the Colony from Quebec is by all rail, or by lake and
rail, to Winnipeg.
From Winnipeg to the Colony, 150 miles, the journey is by road
and team.
The climate is very much the same as it was in England 30 years ago.

Steamshop Line, or to the office of the Company.
