of ten years, summer and winter, has
scarcely varied his diet for his noonday
He is a tall, athletic man, always well
dresed and appears to be. if not
wealthy, a man. in excellent circum
stances. It must lie from choice then
and not iiecuniary reasons that each day
in the j ear he orders regularly a bowl of
milk and a plate of crackers, and con
cludes the repast with a chocolate eclair
in winter and a dish of berries in summer.
The gentleman for fully a half score
or years has not altered this order.
Whether he is interested in a dairy and
desires to popularize a milk diet no one
seems to know. That the food agrees
with him is evident from his appearance.

evidence that he most thoroughly en
joys the refreshing repast. Tsew York

Area aud Population of the World.
The data given in "Die Bevolkerung
der Erde" show that the area of the
world Is 52,29!),431 square miles and the
Iopnlation 1,479,729,151, an average of
twenty-eight to the square mile. Raven
stein's revised estimate for 1890 gives
the area at ."il .2."io.8oO, the population at
1,467,920.000, and twenty-nine to the
square mile, ami estimates the increase
! (ltS0-90) at fi per cent.
In computations of this kind several
totals, particularly in Asia and Africa,
have to lie obtained by estimate. It is
quite iossible that the total population
reaches more nearly 1,500,000,000 than
the figures given. In any event the lat-
j ter in round numbers are more practical
and eaier to remember. Chicago Tribune.

When we stop to think, we wonder
how real the sillj- superstitions, in which
nobody believes, are in their influence
upon our actions. We hesitate to start

J:iy Gould's ISook
occasionally some iierson knocks at
the door f Jay Gould's office in the
estern Lnnm building with a copj- of
"ihe History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exists in me minus oi many
people that -Mr. Gould is desirous of
suppressing this publication as com
pletely as iKifisible, and that he will pav
almost any price to get possession of the
few stray copies that are left. Resi
dents of Delaware county are authority
for the statement that, several years ago
an agent of Mr. Gould s scoured that
county for these books and bought near
ly all of them at fancy prices. When
ever a copy of this particular history of
Delaware county is displayed in that
county at the present dav the older resi
dents will advise the owner, "Jist j-ou
take thet down ter New York, an Jay
Ixonld 11 give yer thirty or forty dollars
fer it. it is certain that nobody in Mr.
Gould's office ever heard of his paying
any such price for one of those books.
And nolx dy is able to explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress the pub
lication, unless it is that he thinks there
is too much sentiment in it for a man of
his present reputation. New York

Oypsy Suertltion About AVltches.

Antidotes for Snake Poison.
The effect of snake bite depends parti y
on the condition of the snake and partly
ou that of the person bitten and the part
attacked. Xo effectual antidote has yet
been discovered. Ammonia and per
manganate of ixrtassium will hot suffice,
although a solution of the latter will
take away the poisonous property of the
snake's venom if it be mixed therewith.
Immediate amputation of a bitten toe
or finger is the best course, as tlie delay
of a few seconds may suffice to convey
the ioison into the patient's circulation.
If from the nature of the part bitten
amputation cannot be performed, a very
j tight ligature applied after cauterization
j and sucking the part is the best course,
1 and the administration of stimulants is
generally recommended. Quarterly Re

Throwing rice and wheat at a wed
