the couutry prosperous. In 1903, for Instance,
the aurplua of farm product which were not needed for
domestic consumption and were sold abroad amounted to
878.000.000. Exclusive of farm products, the balance of
trade was against us, the exports of other products falling

mntributlon to the export trade, however, that hla producta
not only wiped out this balance but established a balance
to our favor of fully $.'M7,000.0ti0.
It la not without reason that Secretary Wilson breaks
tuto praise of the growers of wheat and corn and other agri

Possibly few persons are aware that

James Gazette. The oldest bit of pal
ace lu Europe, tuut of the west front
of the Burg lu Vienna, Is of tbe time
of Henry VIII. The Kremlin In Moscow,
the Doge's palace In Venice, are of
tbe fourteenth century. Tbe seraglio
In Stamboul was built by Mohammed
II. The oldest part of the Vatican was
commenced by Borgia, whose name It
bears. Tbe old Louvre was begun In
the reign of Henry VITL, the Tuileries

civil war Versailles was yet a swamp.
The sixteenth century claims tbe Es

galia Is there with one notable ex
ception. The Knblnor is represented
by a crystal. Queen Alexandra wears
the original on grent occasions as part
Df her personal Jewels. The, tower bus
been the sovereign's strong room for
the storing of treasure ever since tower-dwelling
moniircbs were. The old
jewel house Itself was built simul
taneously with the royal mint, when
that establishment was within the tow
er walls. The only attempt to steal
the treasure Is historic. It was tbe
feat of that picturesque villain Col.
Blood lie bud Ingratiated himself
with the deputy keeper of the jewels;
bad gone so far ns to propose n match
between his ward and the daughter of
the official. All went smoothly. The
bogus swain turned up to be inspected,
with him three others and the colonel.
They beat and gagged the old ninn, se
cured the crown, orb nnd scepter and
were Just making off when by the
strangest coincidence the son of tbe
jewel keeper arrived from Flanders.
The scene which followed would do
credit to the dramr.tisL The colonel,
disguised us a clergyman, had the
crown concealed beneath his cassock,
and added bis voice to the hue and
cry. "Stop the vllllnn!" he roured.
He hod reached his horse before the
Imposture was discovered. When they
'made for him he turned and fired In
tke fare of the men nearest htm. The
pistol mlMwd fire and tbe crown was
saved, but not uninjured. Trampled In
the mud, its jewels were all k no- ed
out and many of them lost. An ap
prentice found the great pearl, a scav
enger the biggest diamond.
"Well, it was a gallant deed; It was
to gain a crown," was all Blood bad'
to say as they carried bint a prisoner
to the dungeons. But no ill befell him
for this and other treason. He bad
played for high stakes before, bad at
tempted to surprise Dublin castle and
capture tbe duke of Ormonde, and,
thut failing had coolly laid his plans
to sieze and bang him when he return
ed to London. The outcome of all was
that, confessing to having plotted to
take his sovereign's life, he was grant
ed a pension, and lived and died in the
odor of sanctity at court

of his long Imprisonment, tbe earl re

MANY SYSTEMS ARE IN USE.
Ballwars In England Arc Operate
L'nder a Variety of Conditions.
It is not easy for an American rail
road man to conceive of the conditions
exlsng In tbe British Islands. Tbe
English railway systems total only
000 miles. et this comparatively small
mileage Is the property of 2"J0 com
panies, more than half of which have
their separate administration and exec
utive. The others are "leased and
worked lines." Allotting an average of
eight directors apiece to each of the
1Z5 Independent companies, the Eng
lish railways support 1,000 directors,
whose fees can hardly be less than
$1,250 a year each.
The railroads of India cover about
2C,0u0 miles. Yet Thomas Bobertson,
tbe expert who recently reported to
the British government ou Indian rail
way administration, says that tbe tusk
of supervising the lines of that vust
country might safely be Intrusted to a
board of three qualified men, assisted
by a secretary, a chief Inspector and a
nutnoT of inspectors and auditors.
Three experts with a small staff are
considered by Mr. Robertson capable of
performing duties of about the same
character as those for which In Eng
land are employed 1,000 amateur di
rectors with their secretaries and as
sistant secretaries, accountants, audi
tors, clerks, messengers, etc.
If only the sum of $1,250,000 paid
awuy unnuully in fees to railway di
rectors were available for a centralized
rauway board it would be possible to
attract the ablest men by offering tbe
largest known salaries and yet make
The saving by "standardization" Is
also to be considered. The Harriman
roads, 17,000 miles, are to unify their
machinery so that all "parts" of roll
ing Rtock shall be Interchangeable.
The consolidation of American roads
has gone much farther than in Britain.
The Vanderbllt and Pennsylvania sys
tems contain about 20,000 miles each,
cither one of them nearly equaling the
22,000 miles of nil England. And
though the Individual roads In these
systems have in some cases their sep
arate boards, these usually consist of
practically the same men. Many Im
portant lines nrc also "leased and
worked." Against the VtO systems of
22.0W miles less than 100 miles to n
line In England the Vanderbllt and
Pennsylvania systems Include together
less (ban twenty component lines, or
an average of more tudii 2,000 iii'ic-3 u
line. The longest single line In the
United States, the Southern Pacific, has
over 0,500 miles of track.
For Their Stomachs' Sake.
Sunday-school treats must come
round oftener In England than In the
United States, for the Dean of Bristol
has Included In his recent book "Odds
and Ends," many Btories of tbe hold
of such festivities on the juvenile
heart and stomach.
The hand of the small boy wavered
