There is no danger of this industry being over- done, as the constantly increasing de- mand is always iu excess of the supply. The Alaska market insures a good price and sure sale for everything produced. PRICES OF LAND Logged off lands cau be bought for from $10 to $50 per acre, much of which makes excellent agricultural or pasture lands, and cleared land is worth $1t)0 an acre and up. There is still plenty of unused land. TIMBER The country is all heavily timbered, yielding three to eight million feet to the quarter section, of fir, cedar and hemlock. Numerous logging camps iu vicinity employ several hundred men all the year round. The natural lay of the country brings everything out by Monroe for miles around.

OPPORTUNITIES The opportunities for both capital and labor are numerous and of sub- stantial nature. The location on the main liue of the Great Northern Rail- way insures a market for all manufac- ; tured wood products and the fine qual- ity of timber and its cheapness furnish the material. In agriculture the scope is wide and promising. Fruit growing and handling will yield a large return. Small fruit ou a few acres offer oppor- tunities to people with limited means. Potatoes are very profitable. Truck gardcning is in demand. Butter and eggs always bring good prices. The demaud for men in the-mills and camps is continuall7 increas- ing. LOOKING AHEAD For young meu the opportunities of- fercd in Western Washington are greater tbau anywhere in the United States. The climate, the soil, the loca- tion and the rapid growth in popula- tion and wealth, will assuredly make this one of the greatest countries on earth.
