A new railroad is being built lorth from Bismarck, North Dakota, to tup some of the rich agricultural lands uf the Missouri valley, ll will run north to Washburn and Coal Harbor, vhere it will lap the extensive coal deposits there. A vast, area of excel- ent fanning and grazing land will be jpened up, and these lands have just wen put on the market at from four o seven dollars per acre. This railroad is being built by Sena- or Washburn and next year when the 3oo railroad is built into Bismarck it vill become part of the system. It is >eiiig buill under the name of Bismarck, Washburn and Ft. Buford rail- cm], and Seiiii tor Washburn has bought p a lai-tfi- tract of land and placed it n tbe market.. There is a great rush f set tlurn to North Dakota this year and although this land has only 'been on ibe market about two .weeks, already a large share of it* is taken. The soil is fine, a black loam with a clay sub soil and all inlaid with coal at a depth of from 12 to 14 feet which crops out at the lakes and rivers, Tho actual settler who wants a good home for a very little monev tuid wishes to engage in mixed farming- cannot do better than to buy somo of this land in the celebrated Missouri valley. The speculator who wants to make quick returns on a small investment will find this a most profitable investment. In order to hold the land you will have to pay 10 per cent, down nnd balance at 6 per cent, yearly payments. There is not, a piece of land today on the market, which will pay better returns on a small investment than these lands and there is no place where the actual settler with small moans can make a better home than on these Missouri valley lands.

In fact I had no faith in hog cholera medicine, having tried several kinds without success. I consented to have Sutt's Hog Cholera Preventive tried on my hogs, and with his medicine, by following his directions, I cured all of the sick hogs but one, which was nearly dead when we began using. I cheerfully recommend Sntt's Hog Cholera Preventive to hog raisers, and feel assured it will fully fill the claims made for it. (Signed) D. RICE. Manufactured and guaranteed by T. L.
