CLAN-DONALD  COLONY
Those interested in settlement of Hebrideans in Canada will be pleased to. learn of
the remarkable opportunity offered to a limited few by the latest project of the Scot-
ti-sh Immigrant Aid Society.
The society has acquired in Northern Central Alberta a tract of 30,000 acres of
excellent land. One hundred farms of 160 acres or upwards will be selected from this
tract and settled by Crofters and other small farmers. Of the 100 farms about 40 are
already ear-marked for Hebrideans now in Canada and who are all ready to move on
to their places in the early spring.
On each farm a four-roomed cottage and a stable-barn for four horses and six
cows will be erected, and a well provided, at a total price of $750.00 (£150).   Financial
assistance up to $1,000.00  (£200)  for the purchase of stock and equipment will be
advanced.

Excellent terms will be given—thirty years for the repayment of the land, and
twelve years, as per written agreement, for repayment   of  buildings  and  stock   and
equipment.
The land will be sold at cost price, plus expenses, namely at an average price of
$5.00 (or £1) an acre.
Seldom or never has such an excellent opportunity been offered to settlers from
the United Kingdom, and never before to Hebrideans. But this chance must be
taken up at once, as of the 100 farms, 40 are already taken up, and this leaves but 60
for new settlers.
These settlers will be carefully selected and none but good workers and experienced men need apply. None will be accepted until they are personally interviewed
by Rev. Andrew MacDonell, O.S.B., M.C., Managing Director of the Scottish Immigrant Aid Society.
Intending settlers should send in their names without delay, to
