The End of the World Again.
MAN' of the name of Baiter Is causing a com
motion In certain quarters of London by
prophesying that tho world will come to an end
In 1KH. Mr. Baxter's reasons for setting the
limit at 1924 are not very plain to outsiders.
jj Out her claims to have Biblical authority for his
conclusion. Feople who foresee the end of the world al
ways have the Bible to back them up. It lg simply a mat
ter of Interpretation.
Many people found a few years ago that tbelr Bibles
plainly pointed to the destruction of the world at the end
of the nineteenth century. Signs and portents were e very
where, and when the whistles blew at midnight on the
81st of December and do general explosion came off there
were thousands of men, women and children who drew
Ions breaths and gladly decided to take a fresh start.
Prophet Baiter Is probably no more of a seer than any
of his predecessors In the end-of-the-world predicting busi
ness have been, but I, may be serving a good purpose.
Every time anybody sets a day for the end of the world
certain people begin trying to do better. Hence those
predictions are not without good results. Sometimes It
seems as if society might be, considerably benefited If there
were more of them. Chicago Ilecord-Herald.

Is no lunger safe to borrow a book unless we disinfect It
thoroughly with powdered formol. If we fly to the moun
tains to escape germs, we find that even the pearly rain
drops that fall there contain them. Almost any one would
suppose that In the middle of the sea we should find sur
cease from them; but certain conclusive observations lately
recorded show not only that "even the water of the central
portion of the North Atlantic Ocean Is not wholly free from
bacteria," but that the germs In sea water are Increasing
In numbers. No sea water and no rain water has been
found perfectly devoid of genus, though the rain water
over the deep sea Is more nearly free from them than the
rain water that falls over the land. Not nil these wander

Summer Life on the Farm.
HERE appears to be a steadydemand forslght

growth of that taste 'which makes people of
means prefer the rest of country life during the
summer, to the confusion and crowds which
make life at a summer hotel wearisome and

when tiny sought relaxation. The extension of steam and
trolley lines has robbed country life of a large part of It
Isolation and helped Induce people "to go back to the land."
Old farms, which a generation ago hardly kept a family
live, are found to have a market value, owing to panorama
of bill, vale, lake and river, which counted nothing In the
eyes of former owners, and the new occupants draw divi
dends In health, sunshine, shade ami landscape which art
fully as valuable as dollars. Taunton GaxeU.

I $400,000,000,000. These figures are probably
llower than they should be, for the reason that
statistical returns from South and Central
American countries and from the seml-clrlllxed
portions of the globe, such as Asiatic nations
and the Ottoman empire, are very Inaccurate and Incom
plete. But taking this estimate as correct, the United
States owns one-fourth, or $100,000,000,0X), of the entire
accumulated capital of the world.
This fact, however, does not mean that the Americans
are tho best OCT financially of all the people of the earth.
The English are the wealthiest, with the Scotch a close
second. Australia comes next, then France, and after her
the United States. For the purpose of striking the com
parison, the compilation of 1895 from Marshall's "Diction
ary of Statistics" la taken, Inasmuch as it Is fuller than
any table subsequently made. The per capita wealth of
England Is $1,5K4; Scotland, $1,257; Australia, $1,123;
France, $1,210; United States, $1,123. Six other countries
whoso per capita wealth Is worthy of mention are the
following: Denmark with $1,104; Canada, $040; Holland,
$878; Switzerland, $7S7; Germany, $748, and Belgium,
$73!). All these figures, of course, have greatly Increased
since the year they were compiled, but no great change In
the relative standing of the different nations has probably
resulted thereby. Kansas City Journal.

Should Dark Women I
Marry Dark Men? f
They do the things differently In
England, if one may Judge by the fol
lowing article In an English publica
tion on "Should a Dark Womnn Mar
ry a Dark Man?"
I know there Is a scientific law,
"Llks repel, unllkes attract" But
eurely It Ik a far cry to lit an elec
trical statement to souls. Though, of
course, love may be a subtle kind of
magnetism, In which cae undoubtedly
the dark should many the fair.
The gnat advantage of this seems
that, roughly speaking, fair people
take. life more, easily than dark ones,
and aro is Tirrvoiis and utuiv uml
ablv. Then-fore the Ideal mate for
tlu dark, energetic, highly strung
man Is the Monde, placid, good-tempered
woman whose calmness will
cool his Impetuosity.
Just In the same way ths golden
haired girl with violet eyes will prob
ably be drawn to tho dark Italian
looking fellow whoso eloquent brown
oyes seem to speak a world of passion
His eagerness, his audacity, will
inovo her more than n blonde lover's
Saxon handsomeness. The dark lover
will be her Ideal, tho forco of contrast
will draw them together, and they
will be. In the eye of tho world, a
perfectly mulched pair.
I know of dozens of good ladles who
sigh their loudest and exclaim, "Dear
ine! We shall see what we shall see"
when they hear Hint a dark mail and
' a dark girl are going to make a nintc'n
of It. According to them the doom
of the unfortunate coupla li settled,

For the comfort of the dark haired

going to quote a few of lae Ullage
I have learned from a close studv of
some few hundred married couples.
If, then, you want to Inspire a
fierce, overwhelming passion In your
lover, you will havo a better chance
If you are his physical opposite. But
If you wish to Inspire deep and lasting
friendship, you will have a better
chance by being his physical counter
part Looking round the women I know
who are, first and foremost, their hus
bands' chums, I nin amazed to find the
majority are dark and have dark hus
bands. In the rare c?sts I know of, where
a fair man and a fair woman are the
best comrades, I have invariably
found that their pursuits art' entirely

The conclusion of the matter seems
to be that a man rriut choose his wife
according to what position he wishes
her to fill In his life. If he wants
something to worship, something to
delight bis eyes, something to pro
vide relaxation when the day's work
Is done, lie should choose a golden
haired maiden. If he wants passion
nle devotion and poetic fervor he
should select a girl with raven hair
and dark brown eye's, but he must run
the risk of a Tchement temper ami a
Jealous disposition. If be Is a farmer

ROYALTY SAW DETROIT.
Prince Ic Joinvillo anil Suite Once
Spent a Day There.
Along in the latter "iO's and early
'I0's I was clerk In the book store of
Sidney L. Itood In the Cooper Block
on Jefferson avenue, says a writer In
the Detroit Free Press. I recall an In
cident that happened, In which the
Prince de Jolnvllle and his suite fig
ured. They visited this city while en route
to Green Bay, Wis., on the steamer
Columbus, in charge of Capt. Shook.
The steamer lay lit her dock one en
tire day, giving the distinguished party
ample time to see Detroit. They vis
ited our store and remained quite n
time looking over the French books iu
stock that I submitted for their Inspec
tion and they purchased quite liber
ally. Many of our people were curious to
know why the prince and his party
should be bound for Green Kay. The
question appeared to be answered
when It was remembered that the Kev.
Klnnzer Williams, the alleged dauphin
of Franca, son of Louis XVI nml Ma
rio Antoinette, lived there and it was
known aflerwnrd that the prince culled
on the Itev. Mr. Williams, on (lie
steamer's nrrival lit Green Bay and
had n prolonged Interview with him.
I think the prince did call nml see Wil
liams, but he disclaimed afterward
that there was any significance at
tached to It. Yet the people contin
ued to wonder.
In (his cft'iiiectlon George Knapgs,
In Ilobert B. Hoy's history of the
Knaggs family, says:
"While on n visit to my relatives In
Detroit I met Gen. Lewis Cass, who
said: "You are the very man I wanted
Ho went to the Cass residence,
whero he was Introduced to the Priuce
de Jolnvllle and the Dtlke D'Aumale,
sons of King Louise Phllllppe of
France, who with their suite had just
returned from Green Bay, Wis.
It appears that Imis I'hllllppo dad
heard that a man named tho Itev.
Klearer Williams, an Indian mission
ary In the Episcopal Church of the
United States, claimed that he was the
son of Louis XI and Queen Marie
Antoinette, who had been beheaded,
was coneequently the dauphin and en-
n in u lu tut: iuiuij.7 ui x- iuiji:u. am un
certain whether his story was true, the
young princes came to the United
States, chartered the steamer Colum
bus at Buffalo, and proceeded to Green
Bay, where Williams was preaching to
a tribe of Indians.
When they saw and spoke to him,
however, they became convinced he
was either a willful impostor or a per
son deceived by foolish stories. Wil
liams was well known In Detroit.
When the First St. Paul's Church, on
the east side of Woodward avenue, be
tween Lamed and Congress streets,
was consecrated, on Aug. 27, 1837, he
read the consecration service and he
was frequently in tills city afterward,
lie died at Ilogansburg, N. Y., in 1858.
When the two princes were on their
way back they stopped at Detroit and
were entertained by Gen. Cass. They
had great curiosity to know the situa
tion in the surrounding country, which
was once under French rule. Cass was
much gratified on being able to furnish
a historian on those subjects like Geo.
Knaggs, who was gentlemanly, finely
educated and spoke French like a na
tive. George accompanied the princes
on their steamboat trip to Buffalo,
where he bade them farewell, and
went to New York, via Lake Cham
plain. The Prince do Joinville and the
Duke D'Aumale were accompanied by
Marshal Bertrand, Count Monlnolon
and the Viscount Montesquieu.

WOMAN SUCCEEDS ON ROAD.
Mrs, K. G. Taylor Makes Living aa
Mrs. E. G. Taylor, commercial trav
eler, representing a Bridgeport, Conn.,
house, is stopping at an uptown hotel.
In an interview with a Commercial re
porter, Mrs. Taylor said:
"Why do I sign my name upon the
hotel register, 'E. G. Taylor, New
York?' The reason is, no doubt, obvi
ous. I was born in Cavendish, Vt,
and received my education in the pub
lic schools there. I married in Bel
lows Falls, Vt. My husband died 13
years ago, and I have traveled for nine
years, representing Thomas P. Taylor,
who, however, is no relative of mine.
I have been successful; but it Is my
aim always to be more so. My sample
trunk Is a largo one, and with ;in aver
age excess of 25 pounds. I never use
a hund satchel to show samples In
part, but have my trunk taken to
stores when it is Impossible for buyers
to view the samples at the hotel.
"With the exception of a two-week
holiday I travel the entire year, visit
ing all the large cities east of the Mis
sissippi liiver, and in winter time, for
a period of two months, devoting my
time to the. large cities of all the
Southern States, save Florida.
"Many incidents occur while travel
ing that relieve the monotony. Recent
ly a rather fleshy woman had evident
ly secured tho privilege of storing in
tho car part of her household effects
and many of her pets. Among the lat

reminded me of the sign I once saw in
front of a general merchandise store
out West which reads: "Bibles arid
treacle, goodly books and gimlets for
"The hotel clerks always treat mo
with gentlemanly consideration. The
traveling men often extend courtess
that show their goodness of heart. In
a convention-crowded city, when hotels
were filled, they have more than once
surrendered their rooms to me and
gone elsewhere to search for quarters."

Somehow, wo always expect a curly
haired man to be sentimental.
There Is at least one man In Eng
land who makes money out of his
recreations, and that man Is the octo
genarian dean of Rochester Dean
Hole. Combining deep learning with
a large fund of bright wit and broad
humor, he can spare time from hia
heavy ecclesiastical duties to add $5,
000 a year to his income by growing
roses in the musty old town so well
known to the lovers of Dickens.
For 00 years the dean has been
studying the national flower, and dur
ing that time as many as 300 varietiea
have passed through bis hands. He
is his own gardener, even at his pres
ent advanced age, and it is only the
more laborious part of the work that
he intrusts to other hands. As early
as 7 o'clock In the morning the dean
may be seen in his garden looking
after his pets. His method of dispos
ing of his roses is through a London
wholesale florist, who cuts them at
Rochester under the critical eye of tho
dean and removes them to Covent Gar
den Market, where they are sold at
prodigious rates to West End clubs
and restaurants. Many of the varie
ties are so rare that it is no uncom
mon thing for a single rose to fetch as
much as $2.
What puzzles most people is how;
the dean persuades roses to grow ia
a place like Rochester, as experts say
that the flower never flourishes in a
smoky atmosphere or in a chalky soil.
It has been surmised that the kind old
dean's piety has much to do with tha
phenomenon, but the reverend gentle
man denies the soft impeachment...
Like a good business man, he will not'
give his secret away, and merely says
to searchers after knowledge: "I am
83 in the shade, and although I have
no desire to encourage gambling, I will
back myself to grow a rose with any
man in the world." Fifty years agd'
he concluded that rose growers should
be brought together with an oppor
tunity of comparing their achieve
ments, lie got together the funds, ar
ranged the schedule and kindled tho
enthusiasm of other rose growers, and
out of this grew the National Rose
Society, which flourishes to-day.
Lateat DeTelnpmenta of Hlch Speed
Traction Watched with Interest.
Electrical experts and transportation
managers of this country are watching
with interest the latest developments
of high-speed traction, as indicated by
the construction of the "mono-rail"
Hue between ' Manchester and Liver
pool, England, the Berlin-Hamburg
tests iu Germany and the "limited"
service between Cleveland and Toledo.
All these represent different types of
locomotion. The German tests are
practicaly a continuation of those
made two years ago on the Berlln
Zossen short military line, arid are to
determine the practicability of main
taining high speeds with both steam
and electric locomotives. The "mono
rail" system is a development of tho
idea whieli in this country took the
forms of the Meigs electric railway
and the Boynton bicycle railway. In
spite of those who laughed ot the In
ventor who year after year appeared
at tho Stale House sirking an exten
sion of the thiif in which to build his
experimental line from Boston to
Brockton, the Boynton bicycle railway
contained an Idea which is being ap
plied practically abroad, and wh'ch had
vitality enough to withstand not only
the fiercest attacks of competitive sys
tems, but ridicule enough to havo
crushed out a worthless scheme. The
experimental lines of the "mono-rail"
type which exist, as ruins at Coney
Island and Patciiogue are monumonts
to the germ of an idea which is full of
possibilities. And tho great railroads
know It. Boston Transcript.
