AGRICULTURAL DETERIORATION AND NATIONAL DECADENCE "Essays, and Poli'.i- by the Right Honorable Arthur James Ualfour, is one of tho latcM volumes of the il.iy which is creating it great flcni of interest. It forms the subject of a review by the Booknuin in Toronto Saturday Night. The reviewer pays that, "to most of us at the present juncture the most pro- j foundly interesting discourse iu the j volume is that on "Decadence." Mr. j Balfour does not deal with the rise and decline of artistic and literary movements hut with the which attacks or is alleged to attack: Great communities and historic civil-; azations. It is this which makes the: essay on "Decadence" particularly in-1 toresting. Mr. Balfour seeks to remove the. popular conviction that childhood, ma- turity, and old age are stages in the national and corporate growth as they are in the individual life. From this we take it that 110 nation is come to decadence merely as u process of nature, and there is no reason why this should uot be ac- cepted, in the inspiring truth it com municutes that a nation can be saved from lapsing into decadence m that, as applied to a nation, decadence is not a, natural but an artificial cause- Dealing with the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, a subject which has attracted many thoughtful minds, Mr. Balfour comes to the conclusion that this decline and fall is chiefly at- tributable to the gradual deterioration in the productiveness of the Mediter- ranean lands during the Roman Re- public and Kmpire, in the too little attention they received. "I am con- he says, "that historians nhould give more attention than they commonly cared to bestow upon the social and political effects of soil deterioration in ancient and me- diaeval times." Mr. -Balfour. in thus pointing his finger to what he infers is the part scientific agriculture plays in the his- tory of nations, in ensuring perman- ence or decadence, in the measure it' is encouraged or neglected, focuses an important modern thought. He touch- es on what is becoming to be recog- nized as a necessary utilitarian policy if nations are to progress or to sur- vive. The Great War has opened the eyes of nations to the importance of agriculture, and has served to show that military greatness in itself is not suih'cient in the winning of wars. It has brought, home to men's minds that the survival of a nation depends fund am entally on the interest given 10' agriculture. The lesson of the de- cline and full of tho Roman Empire, in the deductions drawn by such a notable thinker as Mr. Balfour, should serve to instil the importance of the scientific conduct of agriculture, and to cause the insistence on aid and en- couragement to tins basic industry, if a nation to be spared from falling into decadence. In Canada the lessons of the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, as seen by .Mr. Ha If our, i should be salutary. It is not to be nr- .and we flo not think that even j Mr. Balfour would tho point, that the noglect of agriculture the immediate cause of the disinte- gration of the Roniriii Empire, Imt it is easy to sen v.-ith this nngle.ot- Do You Know?
