Production of Silver.
The production of silver' in the
United States has not varied rad

Judgment of a radical variation by
comparison with the change in the
output of gold, which has indeed been
radical, says the Black Hills Mining
Review. There was a -difference of
14.000,00t ounces, approximately 28
per cent, between the low production
of 1894 and the high of 1892, while
.there has been no new extreme with

The world's annual production of gold
has, on the other hand, been going
steadily forward, except for the inter
ruption by the Boer war, practically
trebling since 1891. The United
States has bought no silver in 13
years. The last purchases were un
der the act of 1S90, by which in ex
cess of 168.OCO.000 ounces were ac
quired. During the 20 years follow

almost 900.000,030 ounces, or at the
average rate of about 25,000,000
ounces per year.

Fifty years ago painting was a serious

the expense of frequent renewals. To

good, and so universal that no house
owner has an excuse for not keeping

Profusion on the Island
The island of Kabakon Is In German
New Guinea and belongs to' the New
Lauenburg group, which is situated in
the Bismarck archipelago, between
New Pommern and New Mecklenburg.
It is one mile from Herbertshoehe, the
seat of the government, and half a
mile from Micko, where there are
many large warehouses filled with
many bad goodies from all the world
around for many big and little people
who have not yet adopted the simple
life and cocoanuts of Kabakon. Co
coanuts are defined by Mr. Engel
hardt as the idea, the spirit of the
sun constituted in plant' form, and
they are the.rVet par excellence for
the members of the Order of the Sun.
Kabakon yields many cocoanuts and
many other sweets of nature. It is a
big cocoanut banana and papaya
plantation of 7,000 trees, 165 acres in
size, with extraordinary fertility, and
bearing incidentally all the other fa
mous tropical fruits, mangoes, bread
stuffs, pineapples, oranges, lemons,
and has a good annual crop of sweet
potatoes, too. yams, taron, sugar cane,
tallia nuts, gallip, and other tropical
oddities. "Let us join together in the tropics,"
cries August Engelhardt, founder of
the Order of the Sun, of the Interna-
tional Colonial Empire of Fruitarian
Ism, and of the Palm Temple of Pure
Natural Life, and purchaser and sole
proprietor of the lovely Island of Ka
bakon. - "If we do truth we shall get true

The conditions for admission to the
sun order are, first recommendations
of two "respectable, credible" persons
who are to be "approbated by the
leader of the sun order;" secondly, a
payment of about $250 for such as
are able to pay, "for less wealthy
people, corresponding to their prop

Mr. Engelhardt was born in Nurem
berg. Bavaria. His father was a man
ufacturer, and a most excellent man.
His mother was a fine woman. Sho
gave him careful training. He attend
ed the Latin school and gymnasium
at Nuremberg and afterward studied
mathematics and. science at Munich.
Then he lived a number of years at
.iMircmuerg, occupying uimseu us an
author. About the year 1900 he be
came a vegetarian. From childhood
up he had been weakly of constitution,
and ever since 1S94 he had busied
himself with medicine and physicians
in hopes of gaining strength. Ho
tried all corts of dietaries and after
vegetarianism took to a pure fruit
regimen, and then milk and cream.
Cocoanut Declared the
Proper Food for Mankind.
"Just as mother's milk is the one
proper and natural food of the suck
ling babe so the cocoanut Is the one
natural and proper food for the man.
The cocoanut palm is his mother, it
is his kitchen and his cellar. In its
fruits it bestows upon him a nutri
ment whereby alone the greatest and
highest of his bodily and spiritual
powers may be awakened." Mr.

other fruits and nuts, but from none

inspired his foundation of the cocoa
It was in November, 1901, that the
founder of the Order of the Sun left
Germany in search of a tropica! resi

and it was in 1902 that he landed
upon the happy isle of Kabakon. A
Lyear later, on the 3d of March, 1903,
he proclaimed Kabakon an open fruit
garden and sungrove. I will settle
it with fruit eaters."
While comparatively few persons,
in Mr. Engclhardt's judgment, now
may be prepared for such a life as
the idealities of Kabakon offer, as
these become better and better known
everywhere his Ideas will be popular
