The Portland Oregonlan, or Port
land, Oregon, published a cartoon on
the Immigration of U. S. people to
Canada, in Its issue of October 6,
1909. The picture was accompanied
by the following article:
Losing American Citizens. Tho ex
onus of American farmers to Canad
continues to bo a phenomenon of the
Hrst importance.. Moro cf them are
crossing the border this fall than
ever before, and they are flocking
irom nu parts of tho country. Former

thus lost the heart of its citlzenshln

help feeling over the migration of

many thousands of excellent citizens
has an economic sldo which causes
some concern. Tho 70,000 farmers
who will go to Canada to live this fall
will take with them some $70,000,000
In cash nnd effects. This is by no
means a negligible sum, and makes a
very appreciable drain on our re
sources. Hut. of course, tho most se
rious loss is tho men themselves nnd
their families, who have forsaken tha
and of the free nnd tho home of the
brave to dwell under the rule of
way uo they go? Naturally the
cheap nnd fertile land of Western Can
ada attracts them. Each emierant
goes with a reasonable expectation of
Bettering his fortune. Indeed, in a
few years he may grow rich through
mo auunuant crops ho can raise and
the Increase of land values. Hut nor-
aps mat is not the sole reason for
the astonishing migration. There is
common notion abroad that in Can-
ada life and property nre appreciably
safer than they are here. Murders
are not so frequent, and are more
speedily nnd surely punished. Mobs

the law Is a vastly more ascertainable

mlt Its Judges to veto acts of the leg

been enacted It Is known to bo the
law of the land until it is repealed,
this naturally Imparts to Canadian
civilization a security nnd stability

'We must remember, in the same
connection, that the Canadian protec
tive tann is far less exorbitant than
ours, and much less boldly arranged
for tho benefit of special favorites.
Hence there is an impression, very
widely diffused, that tho Canadians
are not bo wickedly robbed by the
trusts us wo are In this country. Rea-
ions like these sufficiently account for
tho exodus of a body of citizens, whom
we can ill afford to lose, but they do
not much assuage our regret that they

Most people are moro or less sub

remedy that will break up a cold
quickly and cure any cough that is
curable is made by mixing two ounces
of Glycerine, a half-ounce of Vlrein

ounces of pure whisky. You can eet

ily mix them In a large bottle. The
mixture Is highly recommended bv

"Our eon, two years old. was afflicted
with a rash. After he suffered with
the trouble several weeks I took him
to the doctor but It got worse. Tho
rash ran together and made large
blisters. Tho little fellow didn't want
to do anything but scratch and we had
10 wrap ma hands up to keen him
from tearing the flesh open till the
wood would run. The itching was in
tense. The ekin on his back became
hard and rough like the bark of a

three months. But I found a remedy
In Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Oint
