To Eastern Farm Renters.
Why pay rent year after year and have nofaym
when you get through? The landlord has your
money and the farm at the end of the year. Why
not go to South Dakota and buy a good farm with
the money that you now pay for rent? You can
get new, rich land near good towns on the Chi-
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, on easy
terms, say from $5.00 to £10.00 per acre. Buy now
and get a share of this year’s crop. For full par-
