An interesting article published in the New York Times exactly 100 years ago. At the time the situation was quite different from today: France had the lowest fertility in Europe, and French authorities were extremely worried for the future due to the rapidly growing population of the German Empire.

The journalist is quite visionary in the end of the article. He correctly predicts that the low fertility experienced by France earlier than other countries would soon spread to the rest of Europe with the increasing standards of living.
