Indeed Canada may be said to have a leal Invasion of Americans. In ISOti less than lift> honrn steads wa re allotted to t hem. In 1.M17 the numl*r jumped to 1 .(*?>, and in 1S5W it was 21.000. In 11KK) it rose to o<h>; and last year more than fid.OOO Americans, an army ten times as large as that which Xenophon led on his march to the sea. came over into Canada and ai' now hen besieging the God of Prosperity. The government officials tell me they expe< to have SO.OfR> more Americans this year, and 1 warn you that both they and the American real estate syndicates, who are m .king money out of buying lands at 1 - lling them again, will do what they can to Increase that numlwr in the future. Th's ?- a matter of vital interest to the Vr.iti I Statf" It m< ans ttie loss of some of tlie best of our farming population. ;ind In addition i he actual carrying away Into Canada of millions of dollars of good American ?old Uncle Sam Will Lose SS0.000.000 in 1006. Tiie most of the Americans who go to Canada are skilled farmers. They are men of means, and nearly all of them ca-ry jom- money along. I atn told that the average, so far. has be?n at least a thousand dollars per head, which for the 2 ?>.!??i immigrant? who have so far gon? there would mean an actual loss of some thing like J2<*>.UU0.tJU0. If the average is j ? ke|i up it means that Uncle Sum will | b?se from such emigration this I year, and that to say nothing of the en erg> brains a id mutch of S0(Mt good i American citizens. It is generally esti mated tl; it a drst-class mart without n | cent in !.is po.-ket is worth at least a thou san I dollars to the country in which he s?t'.ies, i:, 1 our emigrants are centalnly worth tha? to Canada. Xhey are worth m In :ii" building up of this country, for the; know Just how to handle It. They hi. valued at something Ilka a million doll r - a j ear by the railroads as traffic pi' '!.; ? James J Hill estimates that i e\.-ry i . w family which settles along the Great Northern Is worth at least a hun ircd dollar* a year in additional fr-Ight. Now ?>.<*?> Americans at even five to the fatnU means W,W*> families; and. at Mr Hill's estimate tills equais an annual in crei-.- of at least $1,000,000 to the re ceipts of the Canadian railroads Do you wonder that the Canadians are anxious to get us? The Movement Started by Yankees. ns remarkable Invasion originated in In the combined forces of Hie Dominion gov. nment and Yankee speculators, and It lm- l.?en '-nrried on by those forces from the bcglnniag until now ind-ed. 1 might ??v that our real estate men were the real discoverers of the new Canada. The Canucks have long known that they have a vast area of gixid soli, but they had no Idea how It could be developed until the strenuous American crossed the boundary and planned out tlie way. To begin with, the movement is the out come of the tilling up of the I'nlted States. For years tie American railways, which are always figuring after possible traffic, have known that they were carrying about SMO.OOO emigrants to our great west every twelve months. This ariry has been scat tered over our country, and It has rapidly tilled the vacant spaces It has e^ten up most of the homesteads given free by our government and has swallowed about all the cheap lands that could be had In large blocks. About 1M00 the fact that the most of such lands were gone be came well known, and the American pio neer farmer who had settled In Ohio and there made money by selling out and buy ing cheaper lands In Illinois, and again made more by moving from there on to North L>akota, found himself at the end of sucli speculation. Lands everywhere fcad rtawn and in the far we? they were worth from ?IS and upward per acre. At the same time the big land operators, who had been buying largo tracts in Minne sota and the ltakotas from the Northern Pacific and other railroads and selling them out to the farmers, found that there was no more land to buy; utid that they would have to have new territory or quit the business The farmers began to wonder wliat kind of lands there were In Canada, and our real estate men to search far and wide for new worlds to conquer. A Million Acres Sold by Americans. Among these real estate agents were two who had made qnick fortunes by buying our railroad lands and selling them. Their names were Robertson and I.ynch. Rob ertson had started life as a country school teacher at ISO a month, and Lynch had begun as a land surveyor at a few dollars per tract The two discussed the situation and Robertson was sent to Canada to spy out the land. He came here in -the winter and took trips from Winnipeg out over tha Alasi ant railroads visiting tha small town* of the wheat belt and of the new country beyond. He would "stop at a vil lage hotel, and engage In conversation w't? the farmers, asking as to theh* crops ana the prospects. One man would tell "tin that he got twenty-seven bushels of per acre that year, and. on being asked as to the year previous, would reply that he had made twenty bushets then, but tnat the year before he had gotten only fliteen -bushels. as his crop had been a failure. As Robertson heard this kind of talK hij eyes oulged out so that they almost dropped upon his cheeks. He raw the pos sibilities of land speculation, for he knew th- average vield In Minnesota at that time was not' more than fifteen bushels per acre. When he learned that the men held their farms at only a<bout ll'? per a-re he was still more excited. He heard tt - s Lme stories at other villages and when h- returned to Winnipeg he called upon Mr. Griffin, the Canadian Pacific railroad land commissioner. and told hhn that r.e wanted to buy 50.000 acres along the Soo Pat-lflc, which comes into Canada from the United States and Joins the Canadian Pa ciftc trunk line a short distance above the boundary. As the story goes, Mr. Griffin was not at all anxious to sell. I am told he looked upon Ri Vrtnon as crazy, and advised hi<n to purchase the lands through the local rsal esttte agents. This was done, and It created sueh a sensation in Winnipeg that the agents employed by Robertson were accused of unmercifully skinning a poor American. At all "vents, the land was soon pure based, and within four months it was all =old for $t<> per acre. A short time after that Robertson and Lynch came to Canada, and bought a million acres of the Canadian Pacific railroad grant. In the western part of Manitoba, and in wtutt is now lower Saskatchewan. They paid, I am told, less than ?> per acre. That was four years ;igo and their land has all been sold. They have let the land go at all kinds of prices, but it Is said that the average has been at least $? per acre, and thit t they have made in all profoa/blllty J2, 000.000 out of the deal. Another Lucky Real Estate Dealer. About this same time another Minnesotan bought a big tract of land and disposed of it at a profit of millions. This was Colonel Davidson of Duluth, who had made much money In buying Minnesota lands and selling them. Colonel Davidson went Into Canada to buy some cattle for a farm he had in the United States. He made in ? quiries as to the cro<ps and saw the possi bilities of land speculation. In looking ai>out he found that the Qu' Appelle Long Lake and Saskatchewan railroad had a mil lion acres which they were anxious to get rid of. The railroad company had received the land as a concession for building the toad, with the provision that It was to be good farming land. They "did not un dc rstand the soil, however, and were so disgusted with their grant that they wanted the dominion government to take it "back and allot them something else. The road Itself was almost bankrupt. It consisted I of little more than two streaks of rust and a mortgage, with a stray settler here and t ere along the line. When Colonel Da ! vidson offered to take the grant off its hands at a dollar cash per acre the owners i fairlv tumbled over themselves in their rush" to accept. Davidson first got the sale confirmed t'V the dominion government, and I then brought In a tralnload of bankers and capitalists from the United States. He took them over the tract and showed them the land. I am told that he sold one fourth of It on the train, and that wlth'.n a year the whole of his million acres had been disposed of. As to his prices, I un derstand'that he started at *1 per aero in 1 Si blocks, and that quarter sections were retailed at $0 per acre and more. th<n those same m<'n and others have gotten possession of land grants be longing to the various railroads, and they have sold some millions of acres. Indeed, the most of the land selling has been done bv Americans. This is especially so w!th th. large tracts. There are also Canadian real estate agents, but the most of tll>-m are doing business in the small. An American Woman Agent. Indeed, one of the chief businesses of the | new Canada is selling lands. The real es tate agent Is found at every station. He | meets you as you step from the cars. You see his sign in the samples of wheat, oats potatoes and other products in his office windows, and you inay find farm exhibits even at the depots. Take, for Instance. Moose Jaw. at the junc tion of the Soo Pacific and the Canadian Poelfi ? railroads It is a lively city of 4.000 souls and the livliest pirt of It Is the rail road depot Just outside the station build ings ii pyramid h?? I:.- n erected of sheaves of oats, wheat and barley, with a ( ana dlan flag floating over It. The pyramid Is made up of samples of the grain Krown in the vicinity, and they are so displayed that they can be seen from the cars. We bad ?i wait of twenty minutes at Moose Jaw, and I stepped off and walked about. As 1 ?t!K>d before this pyramid a line htok lng American woman of forty, with a buxom rosy-cheeked girl of sixteen, drove up in a buggy. Both ladies were clad In furs and the cheeks of the girl shone like Jacqueminot r<tse?. The lady accosted me, asking :f 1 were about to settle in Canada, and If so did I not want some choice lands. 1 replied that I had not fully decided, whereupon she continued: "Well. I < an tell you, sir, that there is no better soil than right about Moose Jaw and that I have the best of all left In the neighborhood. 1 have a few choice pieces that I want to sell, and if you car? to look T will drive you out into the country. That is my sign!" And she thereupon pointed to a billboard tacked up beside the straw stack saying that Mary Jams bought and sold lands. I asked her where her lands were and she told me, saying that they were worth from $18 to $20 and that they would produce 40 bushels of wheat, ninety bushels of barley, or 120 bushels of oats to the acre. "But," said I, "I am afraid It will be too cold. I understand you people freeze to death In the winter." "As to that," said the madam, I am an American woman who came here for my health from Colorado a good many wars ago Suppose you take a look at my daughter, who sits here beside me. She is sixteen years old and I have never paid a cen' for doctor bills on her account. Do either of us look like freezing to death? No sir, we have a few cold days in the winter, but as a rule our climate is better than that of the northern parts of the United States." _ I then totd the madam that I- was a newspaper correspondent and not a purchaser, whereupon she handed me her card, saying: "Well, I would like to inter est you in our lands, and. If you see any one who wants to buy, send him to me_ I mean any man with good hard castr Send your card along with him. aad If h? buys you will get your commission." With that she drove quickly away to aeeost an other stratger who had come out of the na tion. American Settlements In Canada. Durtng my travel# here I hare visited many of the localities where Americans have settled. They have come to Canada In all aorta of ways. Some were brought by the tralnload, by the real estate agents and the government, almost depopulating the little farm communities of our country from whence they came. Icrwa, for In stance, has fallen off 10.000 or more through this and other emigration. Some of the settlers had crossed the boundary tn canvas-covered wagons, and others had driven Into Canada In aH sorts of vehicles. I have photographs of men who came In using oxen and horses to pull their effects, and of some who plodded along for days with ox teams on the way. The first Americans to arrive squatted down close to our boundary, getting home steuds and buying farms along the Boo Pacific railroad. Soon afterward they be gan to take up the lands farther west, and now fully 70 per cent of all the settlers be tween Moose Jaw and the international boundary are Americans. They own a line i of wheat farms extending on each side from the railroad back far Into the country. Their homes remind me of the settled por- ! tlons of North Dakota, and they have many good little towns such as Weyburn, which has 1.200. Milestone 600, and Others. In such towns the business men are chiefly Americans. Another line of American settlements has grown up along the Prince Albert branch of the Canadian Pacific railroad, and others along the Canadian Northern. It 19 on the Canadian Pacific branch that David son got his cheap lands and resold them. As it is now there Is a continuous line of unbroken wheat fields running from fifty miles above Reglna to Rosthern. a distance of 170 miles. Ninety per cent of the lands along that road are owned by Americans, their farms extending back from the track for about twelve miles on either side. Some of the farmers are homesteaders, many ot whom bought the lands adjoining them, so that they each have all the way from M2U acres up to 5.000 acres. They are building comfortable houses and good barns. Don't Want Homesteads. Some of the Americans will not take up homesteads, although they can get the land for living on it. They prefer to buy rather i JAC3KATCHCVYAM than relinquish their allegiance to the 1'nlted States. Every homesteader has to become a naturalized Canadian before he can have a clear title to this free land. If he buys, however, he can get a title upon paying the money, and as the outsiders have about as many rights as the Cana dian. with the single exception of being able to vote or run for office, a large num ber of our citizens are Americans still. Within the past year the Canadian Northern has been pushed through the wheat belt to beyond Edmonton. There are Americans settled along that line, and it Is probable that some of those who come this year will take up settlements between Edmonton and the Rockies, toward which I the Canadian Northern is building. The latest colonies are along the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and, Indeed, there are Americans in every part of the New Canada. In another letter I will show the effect that this large American Influence Is likely to have upon the future of this great region. FRANK G. CARPENTER. Chess and Soldiers. Friiin the Westminster Gaiette. Mr. Francis George Heath writes to us pointing out that the suggestion of Gen. Sir Frederick Maurice that "every poldler should play chess." raises a point interest ing for both chess-players and soldiers, which perhaps some chess-playing readers could settle: "It has been averred that the great mili tary commanders of the last century?I need not say the great military strategists, because the strategical faculty must be included in the expression 'great'?have been clever chess-players. Can any mili tary or other reader inform me and others to whom chess is the favorite game whether this averment is a fact?" Were Napoleon, Wellington and Moltke, asks Mr. Heath, great chess-players? A story concerning one of these famous men Mr. Heath tells. It is to this effect: "A great Turkish player, at a big hotel in Constantinople, had been challenging and beating everybody within a wide radius. One day a mean-looking stranger walked In and watched the game. Upon Its conclu sion he quietly offered to play. The Turk ish grandee' looked at him rather con temptuously, and remarked, 'I will play you for a hundred sequins!' The stranger said: 'Very well, sir; I will play you for a hundred sequins.' The game commenced, and during Its course an unusual 'gambit' was offered by the stranger. Its acceptance by the Turk caused the latter to lose the game. He said to the winner: 'Sir, I thought there was only one man in Europe who understood how to take advantage of that move." "Who might that be?' queried the unknown. 'Baron von Moltke,' snapped the Turk. 'Slr.^retorted the stranger, "I am Baron von Moltke, at your service!' " Mr. Heath wonders whether any one could confirm or refute this story. To Facilitate Trade in Chtna. According to the Anglo-Japanese Gazette the Chinese minister of commerce has made the necessary arrangements for the estab lishment of an Industrial and commercial museum at Peking. A site for the erection of suitable buildings has already been ac quired. It is Intended to establish a per manent exhibition of Chinese and foreign goods In the museum. No provision has yet been made for the purchase of artistic ex hibits. and It Is probable that the museum will be used more especially for commercial and Industrial purposes. It Is anticipated that the museum will serve as a record or the progress made by Chinese manufactur ers, and at the sam? time that foreign ex hibits will incite the native Industry to still greater efforts. It Is prohablw that foreign manufacturers who find a place for thetr wares In this museum will profit by an In creased sale In Chinese markets. The Japa nese are taking an active part In the organ isation of the museum, and. Indeed, It is not unlikely that they are responsible in some degree for its Inception. The buildings are In Japanese style, and Japanese mer chants and manufacturers have promised to co-operate largely. Foreign firms will ttnd It to thetr advantage to obtain a place In the museum, affording as It will an oppor tunity to display their goods to great advan, tag a. 1 >' U M M ?? ? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? n ?? ?? w ??

How the Money is Spent?Magnifi cent Chateaux, Costly Churches? The Standing Army. Correspondence of the New York Erenlog Post. 'The rapidity with which countries, even when devastated as thoroughly as the Pala tinate, recover from the ravages of the war, has led economists to compute the accum ulated wealth of the civilized world as amounting to no more than three or four times the annual production. How comes It, then, that, in a country like France, where population Is stationary, and where peace has prevailed for more than a gen eration, the condition of the peasantry has so little Improved? Their Industry Is in cessant; not always directed most effec tively, but In the main intelligently, and often attaining a high degree of perfection. Their toll is not only assiduous?even the women not ceasing to knit when they are gossiping?but also severe. Even with-anti quated methods, the product of such enor mous?one might almost say such terrible ?industry should raise the laborers fo af fluence. Yet In the moat fertile parts, such as those watered by the Indre and the Loire, the life of the peasants seems not much better than what we read of In the descriptions of the times before the Revo lution. Mode of Life. ' The habitations, both of man and beast,., are generally identical ones then used; because of their solid construction not need ing much repair, but inconvenient, dark, cramped, and generally the worse for wear. People stump and clatter about in wooden shoes, and their ordinary garments are of course cotton cloth. They are starved with cold, for they have little material for fire, except their pitiful fagots of brushwood and dead limbs, such as In our country are burned as rubbish. To be sure their cook ing is a small matter; the baker does most of it (and very well, too), and not much fuel is needed to stew a few vegetables and boil that mysterious substance called coffee. As there Is little reading, artificial illumination Is not of so much importance; but it Is painful to see th? women bending over their needlework In their struggle to discern the stitches by a feeble lamp. Probably the standard of life Is higher than It appears, for the French peasant has been taught by centuries of op pression to be secretive, and he may have Invisible resources; but tt Is not what his la.L r would Justify. He has much comfort In his wlr.e. even if It Is only the poorest that he keeps for himself, and a meagre pleasure In the vile tobacco provided by the government's monopoly?a pleasure lessened by the viler matches likewise pur veyed; but he does not get his deserts. Militarism. What becomes of the product of his In dustry? In part, the eye gives answer. The magnificent chateaux, the costly churches, the enormous convents, show what was done under the feudal sjrste>m; and the vast casernes thronged with myriads of peasant lads In blue coats and red trousers show what im done now. This half-million of able-bodied men, withdrawn from produc tive Industry, must be fed and clothed and housed and officered by the labor of per haps twice that nuiober of workmen?a burden of appalling magnitude. The naval establishment, although on a smaller scale and less conspicuous, is also an enormous burden. The employes in the navy yards, exercising a dubious right, have formed ttAlons, and reoently (truck work because ?some of their number had been disciplined for denouncing' militarism. The govern ment, depending for its existence on the workmen's votes, was obligfii to Justify its denial of the right to strike on the ground that its employes were a favored class. Oth er workmen must toil ten or twelve hours; its workmen only eight. Other workmen are laid off when they are not needed; its workmen art* paid whether there is any thing to do or not. Other workmen are liable to be dismissed by their masters; its workmen hold their places until they are of an age to retire on their pensions, which ore payable also to their widows and chil dren, and are twice as large as those of fered to outside workmen by the bill now pending. Under theso circumstances, the ordinary workingman can hardly be ex pected to think the employes of the gov ernment need the right to strike. Extravagant Public Buildings. Fui ther evidence is afforded to the senses in the enormous public buildings that havo sprung up in the towns, large and small, flaunting extravagance in their gaudy arch itecture. Here in Tours, for example, there Is not only the vast prefecture, but aiso, in addition to many other buildings, an enor ously expensive new Hotel de Vllle. The population of the town is 65,000, but this building would be sufficient for the proper administration of a town ten times as large. Any of the railroads, constructed by the government or with its guaranty, are obviously unprofitable; and even the roads brought through centuries of labor very nearly to perfection, often bear signs of stupidity and extravagance of a central ised administration. Yet here, we must concede, the peasant receive* something tike an equivalent for his tax, and it is pleasant to see the draft hors9a so aided in their work. As to the schools maintained by the government. It is hard to make out that they increase the inte4iigence of the common ?people; and the quality of the teaching is bitterly complained of. 6tll},the ability to read and write Is worth paying , for, and may to* said to be cheap at *ny J price. ' Dress. From the Chicago Tribune. Not to be especially conspicuous a? an individual In dress has come to be the car dinal doctrine of the geptleman, and it U that factor of good breeding, together w!tn adaptation for doing the work of a man, that Is really at the bottom of the much decried prosaic uniformity In men's dress. Sameness In style is not necessar.ly ugli ness. nor does tt militate against tne strongest Individuality In character. ir character Is not the first attribute of man hood, or womanhood, either, It Is impossi ble to say what is first. In any hundred men we will find only two or three varieties of hat. for example, but among a hundred women we will find probably a hundred varieties. No woman is content to have a hat or a gown precisely Hke that of any other woman, and she wastes her time and strength and exhausts her ingenuity to es cape being "rigged" like anybody else. There are millions of American women most of whosfe waking hours are devoted to shopping and planning and "being fitted.'' This must be, of necessity, an enormous waste of energy unless dress be the chief end and aim of living. In any case it must be a nerve-nacking, braln-fagglng labor, to say nothing of its cost In other ways. When men turned from the barbarities or warmaking and troubadouring and danc ing attendance on regal courts as the chief business of men who aspired to be other than hewers of wood and drawers of water and gave their attention to that endless process of betterment which Is known as the world's work, the first and Inevitable step was the simplifying of dress. Men recognized centuries ago that If they would help lift the world upward they must cease worrying dver how they should dress. Ortiy a few women j-et recognise this, but If tne whole sex could see how the squander their potential foroe In trylmg to be each ? law of dress for herself and would adopt some uniform system, apt and "becoming, of course, hut asking only a minimum or tlwe and lsbor from each, then they could ' do their ftill share of the world's work, and till they jfto that they never tu accomplish their full sh&r*.
