ERNEST EDWARD PERLEY. A successful farmer and business man is Ernest Edward Perley, who resides in Wolseley. He is a descendant of an old and honored family and his parents were Senator William Dell Perley and Phoebe Augusta {Slipp) Perley. He was born in Mangerville, New Brunswick, in 1877, and was six years of age at the time his parents, Senator William Dell Perley and his wife, came west in 1883 and located at Wolseley, Saskatchewan. In the pursuit of his education Ernest Edward Perley attended the schools of Wolseley, and later matriculated in Wesley College of Winnipeg. Since leaving college he has devoted the greater part of his time and attention to farming in the vicinity of Wolseley, and he now owns and operates the largest farm in this section of the province. His lands comprise eight sections and since 1910 he has harvested as much as sixty thousand bushels of wheat every year. Mr. Perley also built and owns the Perley Farm Elevator at Wolseley and is owner of the Perley block in this town. He has applied the most scientific methods to farming and has won widespread recognition of his success as an agri- culturist. He is first and foremost a business farmer and one of the ablest representatives of his class in Saskatchewan. In 1902, in Winnipeg, Mr. Perley was married to Miss Orythia Louise Clint, a daughter of Dr. G. I. Clint, a prominent member of the medical profession in that city. To Mr. and Mrs. Perley four children have been born: Ernest Clint, Phoebe Margaret, Nora Ivy and Ruth Orythia. Mrs. Perley maintains an active interest in the club and social affairs of this town. For two years Mr. Perley was a member of the rural council and he was connected with and was president of the Agricultural Society. He has been a dominant factor in the promotion of many movements for the benefit of the district at large, and he was a member of the town Council and manager for the years 1921 and 1922. He is Conservative in politics and was a candidate for the Federal House in 1921, for the con- stituency of Qu'Appelle. The success Mr. Perley has achieved is the result of his own intelligently directed efforts and he well merits the con- fidence and esteem accorded him.
