Espef ially striking does this loss  cf growth appear when contrasted '.v.th that of Germaniy, for while  Great Britain actually increased in  ' population' only about 3,275, 000 in  ten years its' greatest, continental  competitor in commerce is increas  ing at the rate of nearly 1,U0j,uuu a  yeair  The two (main apparent causes  for this failure to maintain ihe  normal rate of increase of papulation are the great fall in tti>-'  birth rate and the great increase  in emigration The (bulk of this  ein.g-ration has Ibeen directed to  other parts of the British domin-  .on, so that it cannot be regardeil  as lost to the empire  The! fact that the lowest rate of  increase has been purely in agricultural counties accounts partly  for the falling birth rate and the  iuerea*sing{ rate of emigration, says  an exchange As everyone knows  who has istudiedthequestton, the  British rural population idoes not  increase*, as it should for twojnain  reasons^ the lowness of wages and-  the scarcity of housing accommoda  tion The former is undoubtedly  due to our an.iquated fiscal sy-tem  winch admits foreign produce free  but taxes heavily the Bricsh means  of   production   i  ������������������The latter , is due to *the ' fact  that the capital required forcruat-  ,ng laborers' cottages <is so highly.  ta^ed thai it produces a '"jriucli,  smaller return than when employ  eu in other methods The average  rate of interest on agricultural  land, including farm bu.ldLngs> cottages, etc, us oiuy some two per  cent, and'now that rates and taxes' are constantly rising, while  runt does not increase proportion  ately, land owners are bucomirg  less and less wiping to sinrT s-h'uir  capital on such .. unre-muneralive,  terms, especially when the security . is  a   continually  falling one  "Hitherto great landlords have  been wuL.ng to accept a nominal  return lor ��������� ihe capital exptsnde 1  on their estates largely oc-ja-.-.u  of the uenamentai ln-.ervjs-. at ueh  ed to them���������the pn.de of p;������ss333-  lon, soda*, istatu.., fam ly. connect! m  personal knowledge of ant s-ym-  f;athy.- with the tenants, and so on  But now that the acual 'burdens of  landlordism' are - out weighing its  tangible advantages Jarge .owners are beginning to seil off thoir  landed, estates andche ne.w owners  chiefly 'farmers**-or smalli-holers  are >so put to it to raise the purchase money or find the interest  on. their mortgages that they nave  scarcely enough cash left to repair the laborers' cottages, " let  aione   bu.lcl new ones.

JEWELUERY MAIL ORdJER HOUSE  In'the past ten years  the increase  in the population ol "Scotland was only  'a-quai-ter-'olVa million. Tlie-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  oiitcry agdinEt" 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 population of .Canada and are to be found-in  every city of the United States. They  foi-m, on the-whole, a very prosperous  ''and'enterprising people.^ The descendants of Highland fishermen and  croiters are filling chairs in universities and are heads of great business  ' :an'd industrial concerns.    Theyhave  been among the successful pioneers in ,  every  province.    In  every  profession  and in every.legislature ��������� in    Canada  "they fill honorable places.  GEO. E. TRtDREY     MGR.

Optician and Jeweller  143 Hastings St��������� W., opp. Province Office,  Vancouver, B. C.  Will be held on the  ednesday,  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 i-lighlandt::  But    wherever    these    settled    their    ,  knowledge and skill in the cultivation  of the land  .ensured prosperity;   Our  own province is today    in rhucli    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  tlie  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 ot the old colonies on the Atlantic coast.   Rapid communication arid 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 store's" and  offices.    To "fill such places  the' Scottish girl is especially suited.    Strong,  skillful arid "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 Jel-  low citizens', are ready    to    extend a  hearty welcome to all Scottish immigrants.  kr~4  Si  Tho secret of the success of our  Want Ads.
