On Monday next the movement to raise funds b support the Public Health Nurse will be -t.irtol. to continue one week l"he movement is one which vitally concerns every resident i Ottawa and is one thing for which the "Id war -1 gan, "Give until it hurts' should le revived. As stated m these columns bef re, there is no movement in existence in Ottawa that does more good for more people than this. Because tin- work is dune quietly and without ostentation, few people o mparatively knots much ! it- importance or its BCOpe. The public health nurse at some tJme during the year enters the homes of every class i society in Ottawa, from the wealthiest to the most indigent. There an- cases where die services "i a graduate mirsv arc almost imperative for a sh rt time each day ..r every dav fur a short period of time where it would be not onlj un necessary but impossible to secure the sen ices of a trained nurse fr the limited tune or services required; yet it is imperative that the work should le dne by a high class professional. Mu- i- "i:e ol the class of eases where the public health nurse i- called in, nOt a- a matter of economy but almost from necessity, in cases of tins kind she is paid fur her services if the patient i- able t pay. winch fee goes into the treasury of the rublic Health Nursing Organiza tion. Then there are Other ea.-e- win re her services are quite 88 imperative, but the matter of ability to pay a regular professional precludes doing so. These people may be able to pay something and usually do so; hut ahle to pay or not, the effort to alleviate pain or to save a life is made ju-t the same. Then there are others needing expert services who could never think of calling a profi -lional nurse and. in fact, know little or n thing about such a being. These cases come to light through neighbors or physicians or by ac cident, and to them the public health nurse is like an angel from heaven. Her duties are everywhere, at all times and among all classes. All the United States has been interested in the "Save the Babies" movement. Do you realize that one of the greatest causes of infant mortality is lack of proper care or education before the little one is brouehl into the wor the far too frequent manner of conducting cases of this kind comes too often practically a matter of the survival of the Or if some complications exist the little one is brought into the crippled or Mind, only to become a public charge later on, is one instance in which to be without a public health nurse be almost a crime. for in over R ftv case I hiring the past of this charactei incaicnahle.

For the last year nothing was received from that siiune, nor will there he this ear. This leaves a deficit in the usual income of the organization of he-1 tweet) $1,000 and $1,500 that must he made tip. Mien, ton, the work as it is becoming understood is growing and the demands are greater. While it is a charity in the 'broadest sense of the word, it is not a charity that pauperizes, hut one which allev iate- suffering and puts the unfortunate incapacitated hv illness or disease hack into the wav or earning a living. Investigate this great movement from any possible angle and there will he no need of urging all to "give (ill it hint- ' when called Upon next w eek. SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF LAND PRORLFMS. The department of agriculture has appointed a committee of five to consider the problem of land utilization. Tin- committee is composed of men of scientific education and of qualifications espe cially fitting them for the service required. Among the questions to he considered is the country's present Crop production, home con sumption and foreign demand, and a careful stirvev of the lands which may he brought under cultivation in the future This land survey would include the arid lands of the West that would he suit able fof irrigation and swamp lands which might he reclaimed by drainage. Then there is the cut-over lands which will he considered With a view of either bringing them under cultivation or reforestation. It is stated by the department of agriculture that at th time a little less than half the national area is in farms about one-fourth of the total is under improvement. I his imply, however, that there is an unlimited supply of farm the country available for future cultivation, fur inch i- not the case. A large part of the billion acres not yet in farms probably can never, be used for crop production; also a part of the area which might be regarded as potential farm land may be made available only at great expense for clearing, draining, irrigation, or fertilization.
