FOREST FIRE LOSSES. 1S13  SUFFERED 20 YEARS  Dominion  Forestry Branch  Reports a  Remarkably Small' Loss  The lowest level of forest loss on  record in Canada -was reached this  year on r-ominion Forest Reserves in  Wcsiern Canada. From _ the first of  Ajiril \q the end of September several  of Ihopo reserves escaped without a  siugle lire over ten acres iri extent,  the sir,all fires that did occur being  cxtins'iiis-'lic'd by tlio uuisors before oc-'  caKlonuiR any damaco U> standhiR timber. On the Rocky .Mountains Forest  Uo.-AiVe. wliich has an area ol" 13,37;*,-  ST'i; acres, iho lire-loss amounted to  but 1,1.10 acres of ydAms timber of  only potential value and $ir������0 worth  of iiiiitun' limber. The lotal arc  burnt ovi-r, mere than half of -which  was cut-over or grass land, was but  11,010 acres, ronrc-sciitiug only 0.02 per  cent of .he ..Tea o- this reserve! On  tho Dominion Forest reserves in Drit-  bh Columbia, which "have a total  uren'of -,4_0,-ISO acre:; net a sinsle  liiv succeeded in spivadiiiA over a  larHo:- area than ten acres, and  only green timbor injurec". by lire was  four acres of joiing lodfioyole pine.  Tbo records aro not, vol complete for  Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but the  r ailablo figures compt.ro favorably  witli the ones ciccd. The i.bovo figures also compare.favorably with cor-  respo-Klins ones on the National Forests of the United.States, where the  area burned in 1013, although the  smallest in recent years, wns some,-  what over 0.03 per cent of the' total  reserved area.  In tho Fire Districts on Dominion  Crown Lands in the west patrolled by  Dominion'fire rangers the *-s.; occasioned by forest fires last season is also remarkably "small, nor is this duo  wholly to the large amount of rain  which fell last summer in the west, for  there were also several dry spells  when frequent fires " occurred, which  only the alertness of the flr'fc-rangers  prevented from occasioning large losses. In the Coast" Fire Hanging District, B.C., which being situated in the  Hail way Belt is administered hy: the  Dominion Forestry Branch, during  June am] July and August no less  than ll^fires occurred, yet all of  these fires-were extinguished by Ihe  fire-rangers, before any standing tlm-,  ber was destroyed.

A  New Organization    That    is    Now
Working for the Common Welfare  ,
oF Peopic of Canada
What will Canada be like fifty years
hence?. Well, that deppnds' upon
what wo do within 'the"next five years.'
Did you ovsr think how fast we are
travelling? Fifty years',, ago, yes.
even twenty-five years ago? we had
a very simple life in'Canada. ' Th'nk
back to the old Homestead days \x\\on
pur gramlftithers went back into tlio
wilds and cleared ��� a' few. acres and
built r he mo and 'raised' a big f.'.m-
;1> a/ul,lived,iri lovo and charity with
lUur neighbors. It was a bard life
but'a happy one. Teople generally
wore industrious and each man reaped tho reward "of his own labors."
There..was a wholesome homo life���-a
spirit of-neighborliness iind deep religious couvieCohs. A
Hut now all is changed. Thousands
aro moving,-from-tho country into tlio
cities. There the old home life is
almost a thing of the past. No ono
knows his nc-xr, door neighbor. Tho
oldi kindly- relat-jnshlps aro fast disappearing in tho rush and conflict of
industrial life. _ Kveu religion, as our
grandfathers know It, is rarely found
iutdotlien seems qullo out of place in
ourynodorn life. Rural 11 I'o itself is
experiencing tremendous .c". angos. A
firmer of lifly years "ago if transplanted to the modern fium would fool
very much like Rip Van Winkle and
rub his eyes in astonishment or.
il.rr- up his hands in dismay.
������' Well what doer it all .mean? Whore

The-purpose of. the lea'gua is:'   *' '-
1. To promote a general interest in
all forms of ocial welfare.
��� 2. To make a practical study of
Canada's emergent social problems
caused by our largo and heterogeneous, immigration; by . the rapid
growth of -our cities and the stagnation of some of our rural districts, by
the, beginnings of industrialism and
generally our''entrance into, a fuller
