Tiie World's Population.
A new competition of the pop-
ulation of the globe has recently
been made by the French statis-
tician and savant P. D'Amfre-
ville, says the Literary Digest.
He figured out a total of about
1,480,000,000, distributed as fol-
lows: Asia, with 825,954,000;
Europe, with 357,379,000; Africa,
with 163,933,000; America, with
121,713,000; Oceaniea and the
Polar regions, with 7,500,400;
Australia, with 3,230,000; or a
grand total of 1,479,729,000 souls.
In connection with these data the
English statistician Schooling
makes some interesting com-
ments. He states that of every
1,000 inhabitants of the globe,
558 live in Asia, 242 in Europe,
111 in Africa, 82 in America, 5 in
Oceanica and the Polar regions,
and only 2 in Australia. It then
appears that Asia contains more
than one-half of the total popu-
lation of the earth, and Europe
nearly one-fourth. Africa con-
tains only one-ninth, and Amer-
ica only one-twelth. In Aus-
tralia the entire population is less
. than the number of inhabitants
in the city of London alone, or in
the cities of Paris and St. Peters-
burg combined. In Europe the
number of inhabitants to the
square mile is 95, in Asia it is 48,
in Africa it is 15, in America it is
8, in Oceanica and the Polar re-
gions it is 3, in Australia only 1.
Accordingly, Europe contains for
each of its inhabitants 2.8 hec-
tares of land; Asia, 5.2 hectares;
of land; Asia, 5.2 hectares; Af-
rica, 17.6 hectares; Oceanica and
the Polar regions, 84 hectares;
America, 31.2 hectares; Aus-
tralia, 235.6 hectares. [A hectare
is equal to. 2.741 acres.] The
yearly increase of population on
the globe is about 5 to every
1,000. At this ratio the popula-
tion of the earth would be
doubled every 139 years.
A Costly Comma.
There was a time when the
punctuation marks as now used
in common print were not known
and as the result, it was often
more or less difficult to arrive at
the exact meaning of the writer
and to avoid this, the points were
introduced. Of course, about the
smallest, and apparently the most
insignificant, of them all is the
comma; but its misuse is often
the cause of very annoying mis-
takes, as well as loss of money
It should be the aim of those now
in school to learn thoroughly how
to use this little mark, and never
be guilty of making a mistake
like the following, an account of
which we read not long ago:
It seems that some twenty
years or so ago, when the United
States, by its Congress, was mak
ing a tariff bill, one of the sec
tions enumerated what articles
should be admitted free of duty.
Among the many articles speci
fied were "all foreign fruit
plants," etc., meaning plants im-
ported for transplanting, propa
gating, or experiment. The en
grossing clerk, in copying the
bill, accidently changed the hy-
phen in the compound word,
"fruit-plants" to a comma, mak
ing it read, "all foreign fruits,
plants," etc. As the result of
this simple mistake, for a year
or until Congress could remedy
the blunder, all the oranges, lem-
ons, bananas, grapes, and other
fruits were admitted free of duty.
The little mistake, which any-
one would be liable to make, yet
which could have been avoided
by carefulness, cost the Govern-
ment not less than $2,000,000. A
pretty costly comma that.
Closed at Ladonia.
The following card appeared in-
last week's issue of the Ladonia
Marshal Harper and City At-
torney Cummins came to us Mon-
day morning and requested us
for the satisfaction of themselves
and the town to close our places
of business and after a considera-
tion of the trouble that we might
cause ourselves and the officers
and our friends, we agreed to
close for a time and see if other
towns would follow suit and to
see if the conservative people
could control a few ultra extrem-
ists and save a heap of excite-
ment, expense and trouble. You
must remember that Ladonia was
the last town in the county to
start a cold storage and then
was done by other than Ladonia
people. We are not the best peo-
ple in the world and never have
claimed to be, but we do claim to
be as good as those who are al-
ways kicking up a fuss and mak
ing inflammatory speeches.

Mrs. Julia A. Brown, of Covington, Tenn.,
whose husband has charge of the electric

sufferer. Her ailments and speedy cure
are best described by herself, as follows:
"For 18 years I suffered from nervousness
and indigestion. I tried every remedy rec-
ommended by family and friends, but I
could get no relief at all. Two years ago,
while being treated by three local physi
cians, Drs. Barret, Maley and Sherod, they

and that there was little hope for me. I
then decided to try
Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine,
was then unable to get to sleep until
well on toward daylight, and during all
this time I had a deep, heavy pain in my
left side. I was most miserable, indeed, but
after taking one-half bottle of the Nervine
I could sleep all night just as well as I ever
did. The Neivine is the only remedy that
gave me any relief whatever. I am now
well and strong, and I thank God everyday
of my life for Dr. Miles' Nervine."

Mr. H. C. Russel, a scientific
man of New South Wales, an-
nounces as a result of prolonged
examination of history from the
earliest times that seasons of
drought recur with unfailing
regularity at intervals of nine-
teen years. Of two hundred and
eight droughts recorded since the
year 900, all but fifteen confirm
this theory, which is that there
are every nineteen years one
long period of three years, during
which the rainfall is somewhat
deficient, and a shorter period be-
tween each of the long periods
when the defiency is excessive.
He even finds a confirmation of
the Bible chronology in the fact
that the dates of the Egyptian

Ten Kinds of Money.
There are ten different kinds of
money in circulation in the Unit-
ed States- Gold coin (full legal
tender.) Silver dollars (legal
tender unless otherwise stipulated
in contract.) Subsidary silver,
halves, quarters and dimes (legal
tender to amount of $10.) Gold
certificates—based on gold held
in the treasury. Treasury notes
(Act of July 14, 1890; issued for
silver bullion which is held in the
treasury.) Greenbacks or gov-
ernment notes (legal tender ex
cept for duties on imports and in-
terest on the public debt.) Na-
tional bank notes (not legal ten-
der, but receivable for all public
dues except import duties, and
can be used by the government
in payment of all debts except in
terest on the public debt.) Nickles
(legal tender for 25 cents.) Cop-
per or bronze cents (legal tender
for 25 cents.) All national banks
must receive the notes (money)
of other national banks at par.
Preserve this item and yon will
have a correct statement of the
character and functions of our
several kinds of money.

are doing noble and important

they hold dear. My sentiment

Some Populist Lies
The Culberson legislature ex-
pended $286 for ink alone, or
more than two gallons each; $340
for lead pencils, or ten dozen for
each member; $17,141 for news-
papers, or $100 for newspapers
for each member. These are on-
ly a few items in the bill of ex-
penses paid by the cotton raisers
of Texas for the economic lawmak-
ers under the leadership of our
young Christian governor.
There isn't a word of truth in
the above. It is absolutely false
from beginning to end. The Cul-
berson, or 24th, legislature, didn't
do any such thing. Not one
cent was paid for newspapers or
pocket knives for the members of
the 24th legislature, and not half
the ink and pencils were used
that the Mercury says were used.
It is strange that populist editors
will lie about such things just to
They Work For Little and Keep Forever
Japanese faetory girls are divided
into niglit workers and day workers,
the working hours being generally
12, but when time for tiffin and so
forth is taken away the real working
hours do not exceed 11. ^It is not,
however, infrequent for girls, when
the business of the mill i& pressing,
to work extra six hours or so, and as
on such occasions they are paid ex-
tra 8 sen they are not much averse
to subject themselves to such tre-
mendous overwork. The regular
holidays for girls are about five or
six days per year; also a week be-
ginning from the latter part of the
year to the beginning of the next
year. And then every week, when
machines are polished and cease run-
ning, girls can enjoy a few hours'
rest. Though such is the strain
which the factory work demands of
them, the number who work unin-
terruptedly for a year or even two
or three years is not small, and there
are some grown up girls that are in
a factory above 20 years. They en-
joy a monthly salary of 10 yen, keep
a household of their own and can, as
a Japanese gentleman put it, "even
afford to maintain their husbands."
The sick rate of girls is very small,
only four or five girls per day out of
about 1,700 girls employed in one
large mill I visited. General!
each mill a regular physiciaji
duty and examines and prescribe;
for girls who feel themselves indis-
posed. When a girl is absent on ac-
count of sickness, she is allowed a
half of the lowest limit of wages—
that is, 4 sen a day—but when her
confinement has been brought about
through the discharge of duties, as,
for instance, injury sustained from
machines, then she is entitled to
the full amount of her wages till the
time of her recovery, and even a cer-
tain amount of consolation gift upon
The maximum charge for medi-
cine is 3 sen per day, and when, ow-
ing to the long confinement, the bill
of medicines reaches a comparative-
ly large sum to the means of a girl
she is allowed to pay it by install-
ments after.she has recovered health.
But when the factory doctor de-
clares the case incurable then the
mill will undertake to pay the ex-
penses which the girl has incurred
on account of sickness and will also
provide her a traveling expense.
It is said, therefore, that for one girl
returned to her parents in that way
her employers incur the loss of 20
yen or so.
The majority of cases of illness
consist of lung trouble. In some
mills the operatives organize what
may be called a mutual relief socie-
ty, with a certain fund, which in
large mills can obtain as receipts in
the form of contribution of officers
and operatives a sum of a little less
than 250 yen in half a year. In en-
gagirg operatives factories general-
ly advance to them traveling ex-
penses, to be refunded in two years.
But when the girls go through the
service of three years their em-
ployers will give them by way of a
parting present one-half the expenses
needed in going back. The major-
ity of the girls are engaged through
the medium of agents, to whom the
charge of 20 yen is to be paid at first
by each girl, and also the monthly
charge of 2 yen, all through the
term, the latter being the charge for
acting as security for the girl. This
responsibility undertaken by agents
must prove highly convenient for
employers, and the latter are there-
fore more inclined to get hands
through the medium of agents. At
present, owing to the activity of va-
rious industries in the interior, ev-
ery mill finds it difficult to secure
the services of operatives.—Chicago

Deafness Capnot be Cured
by local applications as they can-
not reach the diseased portion of
the ear. There is only one way to
cure deafness, and that is by con-
stitutional remedies. Deafness
is caused by an inflamed condi-
tion of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this
tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely
closed deafness is the result,
and unless the inflamation can
be taken out and this tube re-
stored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever ;

Tobacco and Study.
Certain American universities
have entered on a campaign against
tobacco as being injurious not only
to the physical health, but to the in-
tellectual development of students
In 1891 the official physician of Yale
published the results of observations
made on the undergraduates of thai
university. In a class of 147 students
he found that in four years 77 whe
did not use tobacco surpassed the 7C
who did use it to the extent of 10.4
per cent in increase of weight, 24 pei
cent in inorease of height and 26.7
per cent in increase of chest girth.
The most marked difference was,
however, in point of lung capacity,
the abstainers showing an average
gain of 77.5 per cent more thai]
smokers or chewers. As regards the
effeots of tobacco on the intellectual
powers, Professor Fisk found, on di-
viding a class at Yale into four sec-
tions representing different degrees
of proficiency, the highest section
was composed almost entirely oJ
The British Medical Journal, how-
ever, there may be some confusion
here between cause and effect. Be-
sides the question oe intellectual ca-
pacity another factor has to be tak-
en into account. As a general rule
students who do not smoke are more
industrious than those who do. It is
not necessarily, however, because
they do not smoke that they wori
harder. It is rather because they are
industrious that they do not smoke,
