Wcnllli of Americans.
Twenty years have added to the
inhabitants of the United States
numbers nearly equal to our total
population just before the Civil
War. In the same period the
wealth of the American people has
more than doubled and has reached
a bundled thousand million dollars.
Our stock of money in circulation
is greater per capita than that of
any other nation save France and
the South American states, while
our gold per capita is exceeded only
by South Africa, Australasia and
France, and our growth in both
items is not equaled anywhere else,
so that the gross gold iu our Treas
ury surpasses the volume ever
gathered before under single con
trol. These are tokens of a material
progress never matched in the his
tory of the world. This is due to
a restless activity and an efficiency
of production which have not yet
reached their maximum. Improve
ments always increasing in commu
nication and transportation consoli
date our people and render them
Perils exist, like overexploitation
in enterprise, the terrible prevalence
of crimes of violence and of strikes
in many branches of industry.
But the expenditure for education
increased more than 25 per cent per
capita iu two decades, and the im
mense private gifts for colleges,
charities, churches and libraries
illuminate both the present and the
future. The tendencies to arbitra
tion between capital and labor and
between nations, emphasized by re
cent examples on a large scale,
promise peace within our borders,
and, let us hone, throughout the
Before two decades pass we shall
add to our population more than
the present total population of any
other country in the world save
Russia, India and China, and pos
jsibly Germany. Our wealth will
1 increase iu a still lanrer ratio. Al
ready our achievements lift the
Republic to a fore-most place iu our
foreign relations. Kllis II. Roberts,
Treasurer of the United States in
the New York World.
Peculiar People Of Slfiui.
Physically , the Sifans were the
finest race of people that we saw in
Central Asia, say a writer in Col
lier's Weekly. Jhey were tall,
robust, manly iu bearing, and pos
sessed of very singular features.
Notwithstanding the almost Arctic
coldness of the weather, they were
dressed in the thinnest of clothing,
the children running about U1 n
state of absolute nudity without
any deleterious effects manifesting
themselves from this apparently
Both males and females were pos
sessed of an inordinate love of dis
play, wearing enormous ornaments
of brass, brass-wire collars, -gold
beads sprinkled over the hair, and
numerous contrivances of silver or
gold hanging from the neck. The
women were a shade lighter than
the men, and, judged by the Asia
tic standard, really good looking,
with no traces of Chinese cast, but
more nearly approaching the physi
cal characteristics of the North
American Indian. The general
practice prevailed of shaving the
head until it was entirely bald, the
effect of these shining pates when
gathered in groups being ludicrous
in the extreme.
The color of theseoifan-Thibetan
tribes is not uniform, however.
Some are quite black, but many
have copper-colored faces, and on
the lower Dhi-chu there are de
tached tribes almost as light as the
Caucasian racesof Southern Europe.
They are slim and well made; they
I have high cheek-bones; the nose is
sometimes flat, like that of a negro,
land sometimes aquiline. The
I females are especially distinguished
by a light and elegant form, and iu
'their walk and erect manner of
carrying themselves the effect is
I very striking. They are a vigor-
ousrace; bold, hardy, hospitable
toward each other, generous to a
fallen enemy, and enthusiastic
1 lovers of warfare and courageous
fhe Sifans are divided into hun
dreds of small tribes, which iu turn
are split up into numerous septs
and clans, each deriving its name
from some feature of the landscape
or from some mythical legend or
Famous as Children.
When Franz Schubert was a boy
chorister in the Imperial Chapel he
was known as the composer of a
score of clever songs and pieces for
the piano-forte. Samuel Wesley
was an expert organist at 3 years
of age, and at 8 years produced his
oratorio, "Ruth," and Vicuxtemps,
at the same early age, was the ad
miration and wonder of musical
Torquato . Tasso was famous
throughout Italy before he was 9
years old, an accomplished Greek
and Iatin scholar, and the author
of clever and polished verses, and
at 13 years he was the intellectual
center of the brilliant court at Ur
bino. When he was but a school
boy in the Jesuits' College at Dijon
Jacques Bossuet was known as one
of the best classical scholars in
France. At 8 years old Louis dc
Bourbon, Prince of Coude, was a
perfect Latin scholar; three years
later he published a work 'on rhet
oric, and at 1 7 years of age he was
appointed Governor of Burgundy.
Fenelon displayed so much pre
cocity that he won lame as a
preacher of Yare eloquence when he
was but 15 years of age. Pascal
wrote treatises on acoustics at 12
years of age, at which age he was
busily occupied iu constructing
elaborate calculating machines; and
at 16 years he published his trea
tise on conic sections, which Des
cartes refused to believe was not
the work of a great master.
Of more recent and familiar feats
of precocity it may be sufficient to
mention that John Stuart Mill was
studying Greek at 3 years of age,
had practically mastered the lan
guage at 7 years, and a year later
was acting as schoolmaster to his
younger brothers and sisters; while,
to give one other example, John
Ruskiu actually produced a manu
script work iu three volumes before
he reached his seventh birthday.
