That this is the case is only too true, and while It may seem per- fectly natural to a native of this coun- try it impresses itself with great forco on the visitor- from one of the older and more thickly populated countries, where generations after generations have lived in the same houses following the same mode of living, with no thought of change ex- cept 'be forced upon them. The cause of this wastefulness of among our people does not require, much seeking, America-is- as yet a comparatively young country compared with Ens- land, France aad other European na- tions, and In comparison wnth China and Japan of the Oriental nations is mere child. The natura'l resources or the continent are greater per capi- ta than those of any of the older countries. Individual wealth is to a great extent dependent .on national wealth. Hence it is easy to see why tile people of Canada and the United States seem to the foreigner lo he ao recklessly extravagant. poor man has an even chance to become Independent and even wealthy here, while in the older nations economic conditions are such as to make the acquirement of wealth by the masses almost impossible. And while a man I knows that he has this chance forj wealth he is prone to take a i view of the extravagance he sees I about him than he might possibly do if wealth were not BO easy to attain Mow many young men there are ir our Western cities who are uarniua good salaries, but who seemingly no thought of the morrow and spend their money almost as quickly they get it. They are extravagant, but in most cases heedlosBly so. Rm- plicity has no place in their lives, and the conservation of their individual wealth receives from them no r.lmtigh; How long is this state of affairs ing to last? Can Canada, or (lie United States remain permanently great nations if their citizens continue living nfier this fashion of rechlass expenditure? They are learning the lesson of conservation of national wealth. Likewise they must learn the .lesson-of the conservation of in- dividual wealth. In this partic.ilar C-aiiartlana can learn a lesson from Japan.
