Canada After tho War
The statistics of immigration show
Uiat tbe European wars of tbe last
century were all followed by a mark-
id increase in the How of emigration
towards the North American continent. That happened at the close of
.ho Napoleonic wars, when the marl-
time provinces received a great in-
. 1ux of settlers. After the Crimean
war again itumigrants poured inlo On-
ario aud Quebec and n similar tid.i
occurred after tlie B'ranco-German
var. Tbis phenomenon was specially
visible in the United States, whicli
luring the greater part of last century
remained the .chief centre of attraction for the European expatriates.
Canada's turn eame notably after the
South African war, and it is a rea-
ionable conjecture that the end of
the present world conflict will bo
narked by a tremendous outflow of relumed lighting men to the Dominion.

Kmbensonv   in Young Children
Can Only Be (Tired  by Enriching the Blood and
Toning up tlie Blood
one ni' lhe comini nesi forms of ner-
: voits iroiiblo thai afflicts young child
| ren Is Bt. Vitus dance. This i.s because of tlio great demand made on
the body by growth and development,
j together with the added strain caused
by siinly. li is when ihese demands
become so groat that they Impoverish
j tlto blood, and the nerve;', fall to re-
jceive their full supply of nourishment
lliui St. Vitus dance develops. The
remarkable success of Dr, Williams'
l'ink Pills in curing Si. Vitus dance
should lead parents to give this grcat
blood-building medicine to their children ui ihe first signs of the approach
of the troublo. Pallor, listless-
ness, Inattention, restlessness, ami
Irritability are all symptoms which
early show Unit the blond and nerves
are falling to meet the demand upon
them. Here Is proof of the great
value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in
eases of Ibis hind. Mrs. Alfred Socli-
ner, U.K. No. 5, Dminvllle, Out., says:
"Our ten-year-old daughter, Violet,
suffered very severely from St. Vitus
dance, The trouble came on so gradually that we were not alarmed until
It affected ber legs and arms, which
would twitch and jerk to such an extent thai h!.c could scarcely walk and
could not hold anything' in her hands
steadily. She suffered for aboul. five
months before we began giving Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, hut she had not
taken ihese long before we found tlmi
,they were tlle right medicine, und afler she bad taken nine boxes she bad
i fully recovered her former health, and
strength. I can strongly recommend
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to every parent having a child suffering from St.
Vitus dance or any form of nervousness.''
lu troubles of tills kind no other
medicine has met with such success
as Dr, Williams' Pink Pills. Vou can
get these Pills through any medicine
dealer or by mall at 50 cents a box or
six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.
Costliest of Wars
Cost of Present War Will Exceed All
the   Wars   ct   Nineteenth
h  this  is    ihe most  expensive
ever  waged   Is  beyond  dispute.
To our empire, it  is already a costlier business Ihnn the wholo of our
great nnd little   war:,   of   iiie nine-
i ii .'iiiii  century    pul   togolhor.    The
overthrow   ol   Napoleon,    spreading
over many years and campaigns, Involved us iii an outlay nf $4,000,000,-
000.   Our 'hrej greateBl wars in the
I lasi century, inrludliig the Napoleonic,
cost $5,750,000,000���8 total which our
I ultimate liability in the present  war
| will     assuredly     exceed,   Our    South
: African  War bill  was $1,250,000,000���
i small by comparison.
The  most stritdng contrast,  however,  may be obtained  by reference
| lo    the long Crimean campaign, for
I which   we  had  lo  pay only  $350,000,-
I nun.    The  greatest  previous  war  of
recent limes,    tbe    Russo-Japanese,

Why They Cheered
When Al Saunders struck llie sawdust trail In Soranton, Pa., over a
year ago, llie throng in the great
Billy Sunday tabernacle broke out in
cheers. It was a country-wide event.
Why the people cheered so vieiferous-
ly, and the story of this man's life
before and after conversion, Including
the year of miracles of grace, will be
told in a two-part serial story In tbo
Sunday School Times, an evory-week

tho saving power of Jesus Christ, the
Sunday School Times will send a

Letter to The Editor
I'.iiitur Courteuay Review
Sir,���.Now that the restrictions
have been removed by the Minister

cannot object to their sons overj
ifjhteen years of age enlisting, nor
an anyone buy their discharge for'
Si5, our shirkers and slackers of
ibis district have no excuse for uot
. Il'istiug.
There are many men both ycungl
and old who do not seem to realize
the gravity of the situation, an do
not understand that if Great Britain falls, her colonies fall with her,
and that Canada, including this
listrict, will come under the iron
iel of the Germans
.It is of no use saying, "My
mother will not let ine go;" "My
wife objects;" 'My parents are
Socialists, and do not believe in
,var." It is now a time when
���very man must put the question
qtinrtly to himself, Why do I not
^ulist ? If he has any principle, (I
un sorry to say some men in this
listrict boast of there knowing
lothing of principle,) and a conscience-the answer will be, "It is
.ny duty to enlist, in order to save
.ny King add Country,"
It is the duty of the ministers ot.

:xhort the able bobied men of

Country Life Invariably Makes for Health as well as Freedom
und Independence, and Offers Many Oilier Advantages to the Ambitious
There are at leusl three ways of
looking at tlie problem nf countrj
life. First, we may take llie viewpoint of thu pessimist who finds
nothing desirable in country living.
He dearly loves to burp on the decadence of rural communities; their
imi. of wealth and commercial
opportunities; their low moral standards; tlieir deplorable dearth ot educational privileges; their pitiful nur
luwness. lu fuel, this unhappy per
son lolls us Unit die mlghl just us
Well he buried alive as to live year
In  and year oul  in the country,
We turn, In the second place, from
the misrepresentations of the pess!
lnisl lo the viewpoint of the optimist.
'the latter regards country life solely
through rose-colored spectacles. lie
is fond of exploiting hobbies lie
minimizes llie defects ami exaggerates ihe virtues ul rural surrounding's; he lolls only half truths in liis
eagerness to persuade people to return lu the soil. Ily so doing lie
simply Injures bis argument, and
man) Ignorant people nro unwitting-
ij lid into divers pitfalls when they
attempt farming us a profession.
In the third place, ��e may lake a
broad, cheerful, common-sense view
el countrj life, realizing that nu spot
ou this earth either urban or suburban
is an unalloyed Paradise for twelve
consecutive months There are clouds
in ihe country as well us Bunshlne;
draw hacks as well us advantages, llllt
lliere is a charm and u healthful variety about country life and country Interests that we feel cannot be dupli-
cated in any other environment. That
one may live in happy and successful
life and countrj surroundings we know
from experience. We were born und
hied iu tb i country. We know it in all
its moods. We love the unspeakable
silences of Held und wood, the limpid
puritj 0,.' tho streams, of llie somber
shadows of the forests, the incense
ol lirs. Wc love tbe noise of buffeting winds ihe musical choiring' of
insects , and lhe exultant, litany of
birds. We delight in the swift rising darkuess of tbe gloaming, the
immensity of the night, and tlie
glory of the star-swept spaces. Bach
season bri-igs ils joy. The spring
v.iih its promise und potency of in-
Unite unfolilings; summer with ils
loves, its refulgent life, its blossoms;
autumn���the time of fruitage, and
mellow harvests. Last of all, we
welcome old winter with its snows,
its ice storms, its breezy interludes,
its sleeping fields.
Tlfere are men and women who
are planning to spend their old age
iu the country. They are looking forward with some degree of enthusiasm
io their native villages where one's
lasi days may be spent in peace uud
quietness. There arc many longing
eyes from the city cast country-ward.
Tae man who has been unfortunate,
tho bankrupt, tbe disetised, all look
to the country as lo a place of refuge, an asylum, whero one may Iind
the healing balr.i whicli shall bring
life und hop,' to both body and soul.
We believe that the cnuulry is uot
only a good place t�� die in, but to
live in. ll is not only a good place
for tin; sick or unfortunate, but for
Ihe vigorous and successful also. We
believe that the country furnishes
; 11 ilu- things which make life worth
while, let us consider what the
country docs for those wbo ssek iis

.Mr. Quild warmly praised tlie waste

ol waste in raw materials, by which
means they add to our national

artificial life of lhe city I as sapped
their  energies,   lhe   tension   has   been
too great, the unwholesome excitements offer'il hy Ihc city have sliul-
tered their nervous systems; many
of them ar,1 not only physical bul
moriil wrecks. Tim outlook for theni
would, we believe, have been fur
brighter had thoy remained iu the
country. At least so far us health
goes, they would not so curly have
become bankrupt.
The advantages and attractions of
ihe 'ity have, from the beginning
been uver-oxplollea. In considering
tbe urban und lhe suburban life, the
latter bus been made 10 suffer by
comparison. The city bus ever renewed its wiisied energies by drawing
01: the country fur fresh life and
vigor. Wc do not think it overstepping the marls to say lhal the majority of Uie men in onr cities who
arc eminent for leadership and fur
intellectual and moral attainments
are country-born and bred. In politics and in all the learned professions, our truly great men, who are
not only cunt res of energy but who
also bold high ideals, boast of a
farming ancestry. Their strength ol
both body and mind they owe to
those vigorous, hard-working, clean-
thinking men and women who tilled
tlie soil and glorified lu llieir work.
Statistics prove that, other things
lieing equal; longevity is greater in
the country than in tlie city. Not
but thut there are notable exceptions
lo ihis rule, hut those by no means
disprove iho fad. em
Country life not only makes for
health, but it affords it feeling of
independence und freedom so essential lo self-respect. Think of i- brief
moment Of lho slavery of tlie musses
of laboring people in tho city- They
are rung in lo their work by n whistle
and rung out by a bell; they are
always under tlie critical supervision of an overseer, who takes note
of every lapse of energy and reports
the same to headquarters; ihey are
subject to dismissal without 11 moment's warning; Ihey are thrown out
of employment'nf the dictum of the
trades union, and involved In the
turmoil and suffering of a strike.
Think of lhe grime, smoke und dust,
the foul stiiling atmosphere in which
thoy labor so many hours 11 week,

all these circumstances with those
of the men who till the soil. Think
of the freedom of the fields, lhe diversity of farm interests, the enthusiasm wliieh conies from being creators, of making capital lirst band;
almoners of, nature's bounty; of being, in line, independent of the rush

nothing   of   the   sort.   Although .111111
J has  attained  predominance  over  the
! fiercest  and  most   powerful   reptiles,
h? and bis Works  would be of little
avail     before  an   attack   of  insects,
which   include  a  greatei   number of I ing (
species tlinn all other living creatures  linn
combined.   Sonic 300,000 species have [pests,
been  described,  while  possibly  twice I
thai number .still remain unknown.
The author says lhal these hordes
feed on nearly all living animals and
practically all plains, and multiply into prodigious numbers in an incredibly short time. Computations show
that one species, developing thirteen
generations a year, would, ii' unchecked to the twelfth generation, multiply
to ten sexiillions of individuals, while
a single pair of the well known gypsy
mollis, if unchecked, would produce In
eight years enough progeny to destroy
all tlie foliage of the t'nite,; States.
One pair uf potato bugs, he states,
would develop unchecked (10,000,000
in a single season, at which rate of
multiplication the potato plant would
not long survive.
According to Mr. Buckkuid's article, insects arc quite as astounding in
llieir consuming qualities as in their
rate of increase; a caterpillar eats
twice its weighl in leaves a day, and
iii proportion u horse would consume
a ion of liny in twenty-four hours, for-
lain llesh-eatlng larva ! consume 200
times their original weight in twenty-four hours; in ibis manner an infant would devour 1,500 pounds of
meat, during lhe Itrsl day nf its life.
It is reported by a specialist lhal tlie
food taken by a silkworm in llftj'-slx
days equals 86,000 time; its original
Through a predominating Insect
diet, and on account of cm ei dingly
rapid digestion, tlie birds bee.nne lhe
most indispensable balancing force of
nature; without their assistance man
witli liis poisons, the weather, and
animals, as well ns the parasitic predacious insects, would be helpless.
The author then states how tiie bird
is a benefit to man in a great number
of ways: in checking insect in.:.skins,
in preserving forests and orchards,
tlieir service in ibe meadows ami gardens, their value in protecting live
stock, and their usefulenss in the preservation of health and elimination of
Instances of tne birds' service 10
man include the introduction of the
English sparrow into New Zealand,
with the resulting ellminaticr. of the
thistle und the caterpillar, whicli were
ruining Ihc iand and crops, and the
saving of Australian* agriculture from
tho grasshoppers by tbe 1- raw-necked
ibis, in  individual  craws .,f which an
average of 2,100 grasshoppers wa?
found. The story of Frederick the
Great, wherein he is alleged to have
ordered all small birds killed because
the sparrows had pecked al some of
liis clicrries, and the resulting lack of

two years later,  gives a graphic  lei.
