The ostensible reason for the arrangement is
to prevent the husband from -"sutTering any
loss daring1 his absence on missionary labors,"
since Jhe greatness of his "future kingdom de
pends npon the number of children he has
here." Carrying out the idea, the wife is
banded over to a deputy husband, who holds

THOSE WHO WANT FARMS.
A FARM WITHIN THE REACH OF
THE RIDGWAY FARM COMPANY has made ar
rangements by which all who desire to settle or
purchase a home can do so. The farms consist of
the best limestone soil of the most superior quality
for farming, in a rapidly improving place, into
which an extensive emigration is now pouring.
Tho property is located in Elk County, Pennsylva
nia, in the midst of a thriving population of some
10.000. The climate is perfectly healthy, and the
terrible plague of the west fever is unknown. It
also has an abundance of the best quality of Coal
and Iron. The price to buy it out is from $3 to
$20 per acre, payable in instalments, to be located
at the time of purchasing, or a share of 25 acres
entitling to locate the same for ?t'0, payabln SO
per month or 12 acres payable -Mpcr month.
Discount for every sum of SI 00 and under, paid in
advance, a discount of 5 per cent, will be allowed,
and for over SI00 a discount ol 10 per cent.
In considering the advantages of emigrating to
this locality the following are presented:
First The soil is a rich limestone, capable of
raising the heaviest crops, owing to which this set
tlement has attained its present great prosperity.
Second It is the centre of the great North West
Coal Basin, and is destined soon to become one of
the greatest business places in the State. It will
supply the great Lake market, (according to popu
lation and travel the greatest in the Union.) It
has five workable veines of the best Bituminous
Coal, amounting in the aggregate to over 22 feet,
which makes 22.000 tons of coal under each acre.
This will make the land of inestimable value.
Third The eminent state geologist Dr. Chas.
T. Jackson of Boston, has made a geological sur
vey of the land, and analysed the coal, the iron
ore and the limestone. This report together with
maps will be furnished to inquirers.
Fourth Three railroads are laid out through
this property. The Sunbury and Erie Railroad
gives us a market for our coal to the Lakes it runs
from Eric to Philadelphia. A large part of this
road has been finished, and is now in running or
der. A heavy force is now working from Erie to
wards ourland in the western direction, the means
for the completion of which has been raised it
will goon be finished. Tho Allegheny Valley Rail
road connects us with New York, Boston and Pitts
burg. Tho Venango Road connects us with tho
There arc already good Turnpike roads running
through the property, various other roads have
been opened to accommodate the emigration and
settlement which has already taken place.
There is no opportunity equal to it now offered
to the man who wants to provide himself a home
in an easy way, and make a settlement where ho
can live in prosperity and independence in a cli
mate PERFECTLY HEALTHY.
No case of fever ever having been known to oa
cur in this settlement. It is not like going to the
backwoods of tho West, among perhaps intollcrant
people, where there is no society, churches, or
schools, where the price of land is high, and where
the emigrant, after being used to the healthiest
climate in the world, has to endure sickness and
pain, and perhaps ruins his health and that of his
family. But here is a thriving settlement having
three towns, containing churches, schools, hotels,
stores, saw mills, grist mills, and everything de
sired. There is a cash market at hand. Tho lum
ber trade last year amounted to over two hundred
million feet of lumber. In a short time, owing to
the coal, it will still become more valuable, as a
number of iron works and manufactories will soon
be started ; they are at present starting them ex
tensively at Warren. Even for those who do not
wish to go there, the payments are such that they
ean easily buy a farm to save their rising families
from want in tho future, or to train a competence
by the riso which will take place in the value of
lands Jiy an ontlay scarcely -missed, a substanT
tial provision can be made
Perspns should make early application, apply or
