Among tho chief features in favor

Its Gain Is Steady, However, and
Berlin Alone Disputes Third
Place With It.
Tho French census takon last
month shows that the Incrcaso in tho
population of Pnris In the last flvo
years has been 83,593. In ten years,
at the samo rate, the growth would be
about 12,000 less than the gain la
Cleveland in the iaBt decade. As a
matter of fact, the increase in Paris
from 1301 to 1911 was only 132.918,
tbo gain in the last half of tho decadi
having been decidedly larger thai
the growth of the first five years.
This Increase Is very small, for bo
great a city. In the ten yours from
1901 to 1911 the rate of growth has
beeu a little less than 5 por cent,
which falls far bolow the nverngo rate
of expansion in London, Berlin or SL
Petersburg, nut to speak of New
York, Chicago or Tokyo.
But tho gain In Paris has been
enough to show thnt tho French me
