The Original Paper is encased in Plexiglas to protect it's deteriorating condition, and to enable it to be displayed without handling
I have photo copied each page for viewing without opening the case.
Some of this paper has been scanned for you to view on this web page

Established in 1892
Last known paper I have heard of so far, 1933

My Copy starts at Page 275
It is VOLUME #23, NO #6

Published monthly originally, later Semi-Monthly, like this issue.
This issue was in their 23rd year of production, for this well known paper of the time.
I don't believe this paper is copyrighted, and is long out of production,
If I am wrong, please let me know, and I will remove these images ASAP
Nor'-west Farmer was published by Nor-West Farmer Limited, Publishers.
It contained articles on crops, breeding, livestock, and veterinary issues; an editorial section;
advertisements for everything from machinery to lamps; a household section including poems, articles on ailments and diseases, and sewing and cooking information.
There were also sections pertaining to correspondence; classifieds; and a question and answers legal section.
This and Country Guide were “The” magazines for the farmer of that time.
I think Country Guide replaced this paper.
Later The Western Producer joined the group.
It is rather large to scan so each page, so it was scanned in 2 pieces, therefore you will see some overlap.
