CANADIAN I'ACIMC RAILWAY COM- 
PANY own nearly 25.000,000 acres of 
land in the Canadian North West, lying 
chiofly along its Main Line and Branches. 
The lands have i)ecn carcfiiily selected by 
coMii)etent surveyors, enal)ling the Com- 
pany to offer those of the highest grade to 
intending purchasers at [irices ranging from 
$2.50 per acre upwards, and purcha.ser may 
go into immediate possession on ])aymcnt 
of orx^-tenth of the purchase money, and 
the balance in nine annual instalments. 

All surveyed even numbered sections, 
excepting 8 and 26, are held exclusively 
for free homesteads, and entry thercf<jr for 
the amount of a ([uarter section (160 acres) 
can be obtained on payment of a fee of ten 
dollars. 

The railway traverses four of the most 
imi)orlant Provinces and 1 )istricts of the 
North- West, vi/.: Manitoba, Assiniboia, 
Alberta and .Saskatchewan. The last 
nametl has been recently jpened up by 
the railway, and contains some of the best 
lands, while its soil is unsurpassed on the 
continent. 



Reduced Prices. 



i 



Manitoba 



The Canadian Pacific Railway 
have made a general reduction 
in the price of all lands listed at $4 per acre 
and upwards, excepting only such as are 
particularly valuable owing to proximity to 
stations or to other special causes. This 
reduction will, in most cases, range from 
25 to 33 per cent. 'i'he lands in the 
Edmonton District, unsurpassed in the 
Dominion, are sold at a uniform price of $3. 

is alieady well settled, but homesteads can 
still be secured in this highly favored 
Province. The natural resources of the

part of tlic Norlli American Cnntinoni, 
The soil is a ricli lilark loam of gicu 
strength and depllK that of the Kcd kivrr 
Valley being particularly well adaptid l..i 
the growth of wheat. The I'rovirKr i:, 
well supplied hy nature with woovl, hny 
and water. To all these advantages niav 
be added the fact that the haidships (,l 
pioneering are scarcely felt. Railways, 
schools, churches and thriving towns ari; 
now scattered all over the country. 'I'iir 
population is made uj) of Canadians, 
Americans and people from evcrv statu in 
Kurope, so that the intending settlor, no 
matter what his nationality, can settle 
amongst his own countrymen. 

ASSinihnif) ''^^' ''^"*''''' I^'^Tift of the Northwest, 
' contains the largest unbroken tract nf 
wheat-grownig land to be foiuul on the 
.American C!ontinent, vi/.. : the rich plain 
lying south of the Qu'Appelle Ri\er, with 
Regina as its centre. A [)lough furnAv 
could be run for loo miles in a straight 
line keeping; in the .same uniformly rich 
clay loam. The Western part of the I >is 
trict is particularly weM adapted to Stdck 
Raising, having a climate that permits ot 
Cattle Crazing throughout the whole ot 
the winter ; natural shelter given by tin- 
Cypress Hills ; the nutritious buffalo 
gra.sscs of the plains, and watered by the 
.South Saskatchewan, Red Deer, Swit'i 
Current and the innumerable s[)ring-fed 
streams flowing from the Cypress Hills. 

AlhPrtr) is situated immediately east of the Rocky 

.Mountains and north of the International 
Honndary, covering an area of about 120, 
000 miles. It is celebrated for its mild 
climate in winter and cool breezes in sum- 
mer. Situated as it is it has the benefit in 
winter of the "Chinook Winds," which 
follow a North-easterly direction from the 
current in the Southern Pacific Ocean, 
whence they receive their warmth. Tlie 
snow in winter rarely lies longer than four 
or five days, when it is melted by this wind.

thus making the winters mild and filling 
the creeks and ponds with water for the 
stock on the ranches. In the summer these 
creeks are constantly supplied svith water 
from the melting snow in the mountains, 
so that during summer and winter there is 
always to be found throughout tlie District 
an abundance of waler for grazing 
and all other purposes. 

■{"he wild grasses of the District are 
most nutritious, as has heen demonstrated 
hy the tliousaiuls of cattle sold from tiie 
different randies all in first class condition 
for the nuiiket, and it is a fact that, even 
in the spring, cattle which have not received 
any feed except what they got by grazing 
are hrouglit in from the ranches aS fat 

as Stall fed cattle in the Eastern 
Provinces. 

'the cool temperature in summer with 
the grasses and pure cool mountain streams 
mentioned, make Alberta one of the best 
countries to be fouiul for Cheese and 
Butter making, and before long it will 
be as noted for such industries as for its 
ranches. 

This District is being opened up rapidly 
by the (.'.!' Ry. — the branches from Calgary 
to Edmonton and to Macleod being in 
full operation.

the most fertile soil in the world. The 
territorial division of Saskatchewan com- 
prises that portion of the great valley and 
surrounding country lying next north of 
Assiniboia. i'rince Albert, near the forks of 
the North and South branches of the 
Saskatchewan, reached by the Canadian 
Pacific, is the principal centre, and in a 
short time will be served by the M. & N. 
W. Ry. as well as by the Canadian Pacific.

for cop.ifort and regular lime that few lines 
in America have ever reached, and none 
until alter many years of operation. In the 
construction o( this line the utmost care 
was taken with every detail, and nothing 
was left undone to make it what it was 
intentled !)y its projectors to he, the 
very best new line ever constructed 
on the American Continent. 



Equipment. 



'I'lus line is ci|uippcd with the finest 
Passenger (loaches and (.'olonist 
Sleeping Cars in the world. 'I"hc wheels 
used under all the passenger nulling stock 
are of Krupp steel, 40 inches in diameter, 
not one of which has ever failed ; the axles 
are of steel, and of the full size of the iron 
axles used on other lines. The car bodies 
are strongly framed to meet any contin- 
gency, and are wider and higher than those 
of any other railway, 'i'hey are double- 
windowed and are designed to secure 
uniform warmth, comhincd with perfect 
ventilation, in winter, and an abundance 
of cool air, with freedom from dust, in 
simimer ; the cars of no other line can 
compare with them in these respects, nor 
in strength, elegance and comlort. 



Track and Bridges, '''-■-"''"ks are unusually 

" wide and thoroughly 

drained ; the embankments are very wide 
and solid ; the bridges, resting on first- 
class masonry, are of steel, and of twice the 
ordinary strength ; the rails are of the best 
steel, manufactured under the most rigid 
inspection, and arc laid with angle splices 
of double strength ; the ties are large and 
closely laid, and the track is ballasted with 
the best materials.
