THE ROCK TSX.AXD ARGUS, MONDAY. MARCH 13, 1911.
Specious Efforts to Colonize
Tiiem In the Climate
By JAMES A. EDGER.TON.
some American newspapers are
appearing advertisements and t
reading notices designed to lure
our farmers Into Canada. Pre
sumably this stuff is paid for. It
is bard to understand why anybody
would publish it for any other rea
son. That gives to the whole trans
action a certain fine old Benedict Ar
nold flavor. Arnold was paid also.
He only tried to sell a fort to the
British, however. The purpose here
seems to be to sell American citizens
to the British. The probability is that
this kind of treason will fail as sig
nally as did the other. It was expo
sure that finished Arnold's little
scheme. Perhaps the same method
Trill help In the prser!t case.
It Is easy to understand why the
Canadian government should try to in
duce people to settle on its lands. Ev
ery one it can so procure is an asset,
lie becomes a producer and a taxpay
er. It is a little harder to see why any
American newspaper or syndicate of
papers should be unpatriotic enough to
print the matter prepared by the Ca
nadian government to further this
purpose, even thongo paid straight ad
vertising rates for the space. Fince
each American farmer Induced to go j
to Canada because of these advertise- j
meets means tbo loss of a subscriber
and a correspond n to the rr.er- j
chants with whom the papor does ;
business and to the community in j
which it is published. The hardest ;
thing of all to comprehend, however. ;
is why any American farmer should j
be misled by this advertising and
press agent material into going into a j
frozen and sparsely settled wilderness
and into renouncing the stars and j
stripes for the British fiag. j
American Acres Still Available, j
There are still millions of acres of j
land open to entry in the United !
States. Outside of the reservations j
there is the enormous expanse of 711.- j
acres. If Alaska be excluded. j
and that is fully as desirable as some j
of this Canadian land, there nre still
3-13.071,674 acres in th-: United States ;
proper that are open for entry. Allow- j
tng 160 acres to a farm, this gives i
room for 2,149.823 families. If forty
acres be allowed to each farm there
would be space for four times as
many, or nearly lO.OOO.noo families.

Uncle Sam still has plenty of soil for

to ail the other hardships of pioneer

long Canadian winter. There are de
sirable portions of Canada no doubt.
but these have already been tasen.
The country is as old as our own. and
really choice farming lands are no
longer open. One can imagine the
Dominion as an ideal country in
which to raise furs and chilblains, but
for crops it is too frostbitten, raw and
distant from the center of things.

Better one good crop year under the

press agent lure. It is the familiar

They are like the man mentioned in sa
cred writ, "The last estate of that man
was worse than the first." "A sucker

It Is this class of people who follow
every booruer ta:e or press agent
j wile even though it leads them into the
land of eternal frost. After reaching
their farthest north these unfortunate
folk have not enough money to get
back and so perforce must shiver out
!.ir lives trying to remove the ice and
snow In order that they may raise a
short lived crop. This side of the
j story is not to!d in the press agent
I tales. The best thing I know of the

must appreciate the summer: thev have
so little of it. Possib'.v the season

Pacific coast climate is milder. It is

Canadian northwest lie the Hocky
mountain tablelands, but we have vast
empires in our own Rocky mountain
tablelands scattered through Idaho
and the other mountain states. There
is scarcely aji advantage mentioned
by the Canadian press agent, although
pilnted in his most glowing style, that
a superior advantage cannot be found

Campaign Smacks of Treason.
Every American who loves his conn
try should feel a sense of burning In
dignation at this deliberate publicity
camr-alm carried on to Induce our
. farmers to locate in Canada. This is
aro.,ndln, ciece of effrontery. It
is an outrage against the nation and
has in It the essence of treason.
I have before me a sample of one
of these pages. In a reading notice
that carries none of the marks of an
advertisement is given an account of
the awarding of a silver trophy for
the best peck of oats to a citizen of
Saskatchewan. The trophy was given
by the corn exposition at Columbus,

piece of news. Now note the cloven
hoof. The article goes on to say:

talks very much in the same strain as
the "reading notice" already mention

that the number of settlers In western
Canada from the United States was 60
per cent larger in 1910 than the pre
vious year." It is signed "Canadian
Government Agent," with the legend
"Use Address Nearest You."
Every man that is lured into Canada
on these representations is a loss to
the United States, a loss to American
merchants, a loss to American news
papers. He becomes a Canadian tax

IITARY BLOOD P0I50H
Scrofula is a disease manifested
tisually by a swelling and ulceration
of the glands, especially about the
neck. It is almost entirely hereditary
in its origin, being the dregs or re
mains of some specific blood poison.
Where the blood is greatly weakened
with the scrofulous poison, the disease
attacks other portions of the system
besides the glands, and then we see its
effects in weak eyes, poorly developed
bodies, running sores and ulcers, skin
diseases, especially on the 6calp, ca
tarrhal troubles, etc. Scrofula usually
makes its appearance in childhood,
though manhood or womanhood may j
be reached before tne po:son pro
gresses to the stage of outward mani
festation. S. S. S. is the one real cure
for Scrofula. It is a blood purifier
without an equal, and it cures thi3
destructive blood poison by removing
every trace of the infection from the
circulation. S. S. S., in addition to
purify ing the
blood, assists the
stomach and di
gestive . members j
in the creation of
new blood cor
puscles and other
ter for the circu
lation. S. S. S. increases- the resistive
powers of the system and by strength
ening and building up the vitality,
allows nature to make a perfect and
lasting cure. Book describing the
