In the past ten years the increase  in the population of Scotland, was. only  a quarter., of a - million.",.The previous  decade the increase had been half a  million. This state of affairs is due,  it is contended, to the large emigration and it is deplored by many local  Scotsmen in the home land. A more  serious aspect of the case is that while  the city-population- continues to increase the-land is being gradually deserted.  . It. 'Seems strange that in the  twentieth century there should be an  outcry against the emigration that  was so conspicuous a feature of the  early part of the nineteenth. The  descendants of .these early immigrants  (form a very large part of the popula-  M tion of Canada and are to be found in  every city of the United States. They  form, on the whole, a very prosperous  and enterprising people. The descendants of Highland fishermen and  crofters are filling chairs in universities and are heads of great business  and industrial concerns. They have  been among the successful pioneers in  "<. every province. In every profession  and in every legislature in Canada  they fill honorable places.  Canada in the past century had not  as, great an attraction for the prosper-  our farmers of the Lowlands as it  had for the clansmen of the Highlands.  But wherever these settled their  knowledge and.skill in the cultivation  of the land ensured prosperity. Our  own province is today An much the  same position as Ontario and the provinces of the Atlantic coast were a hundred years ago. Our valleys are ready  for the strong arms which, with experience and intelligence, will change the  forest into meadow, farm or orchard.  There are many openings for shrewd  business men in the ports that are  being, opened up   and in the   larger  cities.   In one respect there is a great  difference between the settlement of  this province and that of .the old'colo-  nies on the Atlantic coast.   Rapid communication and the   advancement   of  science have robbed    pioneer   life of  most of its hardships. ' There are few  of the comforts or even the luxuries of  life which-are not-enjoyed by the residents of our new cities.   The rapid development of our resources    and the  consequent increase - in ��������� wealth have  created a demand for women's labor,  not only in the home but in stores and  offices.    To fill such places the Scottish girl is especially suited;   Strong,  skillful and intelligent, her services are  in demand everywhere. . It is not to be  wondered at, that the loss of the farmer and rural laborer is looked upon as  a misfortune at home, nor that Scotland is loth to lose so large a number  of its young women.   But it cannot be  expected that Canada can experience  any other feeling than satisfaction at  the acquisition of thrifty, capable and  industrious citizens.    It may be said  that of such people, those   who have  come to Victoria and its vicinity within  the last quarter of a century, have, almost without exception, improved their  circumstances, while many have prospered   greatly. ���������. Very   few ~ of   these  would be willing to live again in Scotland, dearly as they cherish the memories and- the traditions of their homeland.   They, in common with their fellow citizens, are ready    to    extend a  hearty welcome to all Scottish immigrants.  NOMINATION CONVENTION  TO BE HELD AT NELSON  The convention to select a Conservative standard, bearer for the constituency of Kootenay in the forthcoming  Dominion elections will be held in Nelson on Thursday, August 17, and will  be called to order at 11 o'clock in the  morning. Several delegates will attend  from this riding and it is almost a  foregone conclusion that A. S. Goodeve  will be the unanimous choice. Sour  THE ABBOTSFORD POST,      ABBOTSFORD, B. C.

That this "sure road" is  available to. all residents of Canada  who are over 5 years of age, irrespective of sex, health, age or worldly position, is worthy of consideration. Parents may begin the purchase of Annuities for their children, or children who  have prospered, may find in this  scheme a safe way to provide an income for fathers and mothers who  have not been so fortunate in life as  they. On the other hand, people who  have a limited income can increase  that sum substantially by the transfer  of their capital to the Government for  the purchase of an Annuity.
