London Times: At a met" ting of the
Royal Statistical society Dr. Ginsburg
read a paper by F. A. Atkinson, Eiv'nK
"a statistical review of the income r.nd
wealth of Rritlsh India." After refer
ring to a remark made by Lord Curzon
it. a speech on the Indian uuiiget for
1301-2, to the effect that there had
been an increase in the mean income
of the inhabitants of India between 1880
an (J. 1898 of no less than 11 per cent,
and to a statement made V. TMgby,
who criticised Lord Curzon's figures
aad argued that there had been a dimi
nution of average income of no less
than 30 per cpnt between the years
1SS0 and l'JOO, Mr. Atkinson discussed
the Question with the view of finding
out the true facta. He said that this
( ould not be done with any great ex
actitude because there were no statistics
of cultivation in some parts of India
before 1892-3, and there were difficulties
in regard to the estimated yields. !
He divided the population for the
purposesof his survey Into three classes
agricultural, non-agricultural, and
those of sufficient or ample means.
Having examined the position of the
various sections included in the first
class, Mr. Atkinson came to the conclu
sion that the agricultural income of
British India Increased from 26.4 rupees
per head in 1875 to 35.9 rupees per head
in 1895, this being an increase of 39.8
per cent. A similar inquiry, the re
sults of which were set forth in great
detail, convinced him that the non-agricultural
Income went up from 28.8
rupees per head in 1875 to 31.1 rupees
In 1895, or an Increase of 18.4 per cent
As these two classes of persons com
prised 97.6 per cent of the entire popula
tion, itm ight be taken that the aver
age anual income of this great mass of
people rose from 27.3 rupees in 1875 to
35.2 rupees in 1893, an increase ot 28.9
In examining the incomes of the
third section Mr. Atkinson gave reasons
for doubting the trustworthiness of the
income tax returns, which he was un
able to aw;ppt as a full disclosure of
tho position of the people, and he made
his calculations on a more extended
basis. In the result he put the income
of this claxs ns a whole at 74 crores of
rupees in 1875 and at 1131-3 crores In
1895. Summarizing the three sections,
he arrived at the conclusion that during
the 20 years tinder review the average
income rose 29.5 per cent that is to
say, from 30.5 rupees per head to 39.5
rupees per head.
Alluding to the wealth of British
India, he discunsed the monetary situa
tion and the amount of hoards and or
naments which the people had put by,
and gave an interesting historical sur
vey for the purpose of forming an es
timate of the stock of precious metals
which tho various conquerors had left
in the country after successive raids
and of the amount which from time to
time had been Imported and allowed to
remain in the hands of the people. He
reckoned that tho amounts of the to
tals of the two stores wpre, in currency,
in 187 0,146 crores of rupees, rising
223 crores in 1900; and under the sec
ond head (hoards and ornamental
crores in 1875, increasing to 8M: erores
in 1895. In one of tho numerous ta
bles supplementary to the paper there
was set out a balance sheet of India
which seemed to show that the actual
capital wealth, as distinguished from
Income, per head of the p"Pu'at-'on- ,n
creased from 703.8 rupees in 1875 to
986.6 rupees in 1895. or no less than 40.2
per cent. In conclusion, he gave fig
ures to show the great rise in capital
Investments of recent years.
CHAFFING ON 'CHANGE.
Itough Treatment of a Stranger Who
Gets Upon the Floor.
New York Times: If a stranger ap
pears on the floor of the exchance he is
sure to he detected by some sharp-eyed
member, even though thousands of
clerks and other persons pass through
the doors every day. The signal given
upon a stranger's approach is the mys
terious fry. "1,400." Why 1.400 no one
ran tell, although the stock exchange
historian believes that in one year the
membership numbered 1.399, and new
comers during that time were regard
ed ,ih "the next man."
"Fourteen hundred" invariably
brings a swarm of chaffing members
around the stranger. He is greeted
with Hurh cries as, 'Where did you get
that bat?" "Poor dear, he looks fright
ened!" and "Let him alono. can't you?
He's a stranger."
Then some one pushes the luckless
stranger 'one way; another member, ap
parently taking his side, pushes him
back nguln: a third member takes n
hand in this game; and presently the
newcomer In busier than a ping-pong
brill at a tournament. lie Is shunted
forward and bark, the crowd around
him growing larger, and the volley of
comments and cries and encouragement
more deafening. Naturally, the average
man, not being a muslin or sawdust
doll,' resents this treatment. His anger
rises as Iho mob shows less and less
consideration. He may strike at his
tormentors, as some have done, and
thereby" Inspire trouble of a serious
sort; he may keep his head and his
temrernd come through with nothing
worse than rumpled hair and a dam
aged hat, or he may even challenge
some of tho Jokers to a duel, as has
actually hffn done In several Instances.

PARIS FASHION NOTES.
Paris letter: Among the distrac
tions to which the gay world is lending
itself these pleasant days, both at the
town and country house, is a revival of
the once popular garden party.
These occasions call for special
gowns and the consequence is that all
tho designers are busy now with chic
and elegant ideas for these demi-toil-ettes.
Favored materials for these garden
party gowns are mousselines, pongees,
veilings, crepe de chines, foulards, fig
ured gauzes and silk batistes. The
correct garden party gown must be
only a trifle less elaborate than the
evening costume, with a transparent,
in place of a low-cut, neck.
The shaped flounce, though by no
means a novelty, is a conspicuous fea
ture of some of the latest of these sum
mer dresses. The shaped flounce gives
a graceful flare to the skirt, which can
be accomplished by no other cut. The
plaited or shirred idea is so modified
in some of these garments that the ef
fect is secured without the clumsiness
of actual fulness. To explain more
concisely, the plaits are made sepa
rately and sewn on after the skirt is
cut with the gores to fit the hips per
fectly. These plaits graduate in width
from one inch at the waist line to near
ly three times that width at the hem,
where they end ia points a little above
Some of the other skirt models have
a hip yoke of shirring, lace or bands
being joined by an open stitch from
which the plaits hang. A pretty ef
fect is obtained by trimming the skirt
around in a oeep yoke form with rows
of lace insertion, set in with tiny
bands of silk, with the plaits arranged
over, giving the appearance of their
being run underneath.
Simplicity is the keynote of some of
tho very newest Rue de la Palx crea
tions. A very graceful and pretty af
ternoon gown presents a unique fea
ture jn the deep flounce encircling the
bottom of the skirt. The plain part,
of pastel silk crepon, ends at the knees
in shallow points which are finished
with fancy silk covered rings. Be
tween these rings, placed their width
apart, are narrow ribbons of crepon,
which have the effect of being continu
ous pieces of the skirt, and fall to the
floor oyer an acccrdcon plaited under
The skirt of this dainty model la trimmed with two ruffled of dotted
3wl.. lac heading. Tha ooraago U full, with ruCla of Swi.a and bow In
front. The yoke is of finely tucked lawn. The bIcovm .-.re plain to the
elbow where they lire finished with a ruffle and a full ttaderaleeve of
flounce or rose chiffon. This is gath
ered upon a foundation of rose chiffon
taffeta. Along the line of the upper
edge of the flounce are four rows of
silk-covered rings, through which the
straight ribbons are run, and about the
edge of the flounce is a narrow band of
The corsage is quite plain, being
made in the usual blouse effect, with
sleeves which display a fashionable
fulness between elbow and' wrist. A
crushed belt, fastening at the back un
der loops and ends, displays a pretty in
crustation of lace.
The hat worn with this frock is a
very pale blue straw, with garniture
of flowers and dainty drapery of white
mousseline veiling, the tint of the
straw giving it an almost white ef
fect. A charming effect in these summer
gowns which I have illustrated, is in
white grenadine gauze over yellow silk.
The skirt is made of bias tucks at the
top, close-fitting. The lower part is
finished with a deep flare trimmed
with a cluster of three tucks and dia
mond ornaments of filet lace inserted.
The front of the skirt is trimmed with
three diamonds of lace. The corsage
is made of tucked grenadine, trimmed
with filet lace. It is made over yellow
silk. The yoke is cream colored net
embroidered in pearls. The upper
sleeve is of grenadine and the lower
sleeve is full, made of lace and drawn
with a close-fitting cuff.
One of the handsomest new models,
forming th 3 subject of one of my
sketches is a dress of lavender French
figured organdie made over lavender
silk. The skirt is in two plaits. The
lower skirt falls in full folds like a
ruffle and is edged with Bruges lace,
with black lace ornaments. The up
per skirt meets the lower one and is
trimmed in the same manner. The
corsage is full, with a deep pointed
yoke of lace. No collar i3 worn. The
sleeves are of organdie, trimmed on
theshoul'Iers with deep lavender panne
satin. A hat of pink roses and laven
der ribbon is worn with this dress.
A very sweet frock illustrated is of
white Persian lawn. The skirt is trim
med with two ruffles of dotted Swiss,
with lace beading. The corsage is full,
with suffle of Suisse and bow in front.
The yoke is of finely tucked lawn. The
eleeve Is plain to the elbow, finished
wiih a ruffle and a full undendeeve of
tucked lawn. The gl-.'.ij hi of gren
silk. A hat of green ;-traw ai:d white
flowers is worn with this.
A pretty hat, illustrated, of white
dotted rcoiiKE-cline is trimmed with lace
scarf at the back and pink roses.
An outing hat illustrated is of yellow
straw faced with lace and trimmed wltht
grapes and plaid ribbon with ends.
One of the latest of the new hats is
of green leaves extending well forward.
The hat has a fiat back effect with:
green ribbon ends. The sides trimming
is of choux of white chiffon.
An old rose gown of etamine seen on
a society beauty on a recent afternoon
had a perfectly plain (skirt and tight
ftlting.. corsage,, with ...oddly shaped
basques, curving from the front In large
The corners of these unique skirt
pieces were ornamental, with fancy
shaded embroideries, a piece of tha
some appearing around the low cut
neck and on the cuffs. The effect of a
very wide, graduated box-pleat was se
cured by an arrangement of tucks down
the front of the corsage, which had for
its sole trimming a double row of flat
gilt buttons. A scrap of a dainty lin
gerie vest barely showed above the cut
out neck, contrasting prettily with, tne
dull shade of old rose.
The hat accompanying this frock was
made of rough straw in old rose, trim
med with soft ribbon and flowers, while
a white parasol, with tiny rose tinted
wreaths scattered over its triangular
sections, added bits of harmonious col
orings to the whole.
The trousseau of a. June bride, which
I saw the other day, previous to its
shipment to America, contained some
very dainty designs.
The going-away gown was of palest,
creamiest, mastic cloth, of very light
weight and very smooth, supple finish.
It is of Spartan simplicity no lace or
braiding being used for trimming, hut
the effect depending upon its superb
cut and round, dull gold buttons.
CHURCH SEBVICE NOVELTIES.
Eecent Innovations in England and
in Georgia and Indiana.
London Tit-Bits: Visitors to Folk
stone may perhaps have attended one
of the most curious church services held
anywhere in England. On a certain
night in each year, at the beginning of
the fishing season, the choir and con
gregation of the parish church leave the
sacred building and march down to the
harbor. There a service is held called
"Blessing the Sea." Thanks are given
for the success of the past year's fish
ing, and prayers are offered for the
coming season. The ceremony is a
most impressive one, being held late In
the evening, and usually in the presence
of large crowds.
Of late years enterprising clergymen
have initiated many new and interest
ing devices for rendering services at
tractive. Dr. Ker Gray, vicar of St.
George's chapel, Albemarle street, an
nounced last year a special late service
for the benefit of those ladies and gen
tlemen who cared to attend church af
ter dinner in the evening, and gave
notice that he saw no reason why his
congregation should not attend in everf
ing dress. The doctor thinks that it
wiil take at least three seasons for this
innovation to become familiar, but al
ready a fair amount of success haa
crowned his enterprise.
In strong contrast is the Sunday 60r
vice initiated by Lord Rupert Cecil, rec
tor of Hatfield. He invites all strang
ers passing through to attend service,
assuring them that "no doubts as to
the fituess of their attire need deter
them." Dusty cyclists are just as wel
come as smart, frock-coated and top
Music is always a great attraction,
and a good organist and choir will do
almost as much to fill a church as wilt
good preaching. Recognizing this fact,
one of the clergymen in Atlanta, Ga.,
who presides over the Trinity Metho
dist church in that city, procured some
hundreds of canaries and hung them in
cages from the walls and roof. The
golden-throated songsters kept up a
perfect flood of melody, intensely de
lighting the children for whose benefit
the service was held.
The great heat of summer often ren
ders crowded churches unbearably close
and stuffy. The pastor of the First
Christian church of Columbus, Ind.,
has devised a means whereby his con
gregation can enjoy a cool and restful
service. On the fiat roof of his church
he has constructed a roof garden, with,
a covering to keep off showers but with,
sides open to admit the air. The sup
ports are wreathed with climbing
plants, and the whole experiment has
proved extremely successful.
"THROWING THE DART."
Survival of an Ancient Custom in the
Harbor of Cork.
London Westminster Gazette: : Does
the ancient ceremony of "throwing the
dart" survive anywhere In the United
kingdom but in Cork, where it was
carried out this week? Every third
year the mayor lie is how lord mayor
of Cork proceeds in state to the mouth
of Cork harbor, and there throws Into
tho sea a dart with a gilded head and
a shaft of mahogany, saying as he does
bo, according to immemorial ctibtom::
"I cast this javelin into the sea, and
declare that so far seaward as It falls
extends the right und dominion of the
corporation of Cork to and over the
harbor, an well ns tho rivers, creeks,
end bays within the same."
The ceremony is a somewhat pictur
esque survival of the times when the
mayors of Cork as in other cities
were admirals of the port, and thus in
dicated their authority. It is. of course,
now no more than an exctiRe for a trip
down the harbor and, a banquet on
board the steamer.
