Jan. 26, 1910: WIVES FOR MEN ON MANITOBA PLAINS
"Salvation Army Plans to Reduce Surplus of Women in Great Britain"
"Hundreds of settlers on the prairies of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta will be supplied with wives, if the efforts of the Salvation Army of Canada are successful. . . . Officers of the Salvation Army of Great Britain are engaging young women to emigrate, ostensibly to become servants, but really to become wives of the lonely farmers. . . . The girls will be given employment by the married settlers, but soon will find husbands."
