Article in Arcadia Leader:
March 26, 1909: 

Jos. Wojcik loaded several cars of household utensils, farm machinery and will today start for Alberta, Canada, where he will go to farming on a large scale, having purchased several sections of land. Like many Americans, he likely responded to adds like the one that appeared in the Leader in 1908: Productive Power of Western Canada Soil: Winnipeg Correspondence

There has never been any who have doubted the productiveness of the soil in Western Canada, but there are sometimes found those who question the fact of its superiority. During the past season it has been shown that in grain raising qualities it possessed the very best. The late spring prevented grain being sown in many cases before the middle of May. Yet, a large percentage of that sown at that time produced excellent yields. Had it not been for the frost early in August, which visited most of the north half of the continent, there would have been a magnificent yield in every district of Western Canada. Throughout the Southern Alberta district where about 100,000 acres was sown to winter wheat the yield will be enormously large. There are vast tracts of valuable grain growing land in Western Canada that are available for homesteads, the Canadian Government giving 160 acres free, and entry may be made by proxy, by any near relative, thus saving considerable cost to the American who may have entry made in this way. Any Canadian Government Agent will give you the particulars.
