Chauncey Depew says: "1 shall be

that is one thing in which the Demo

would be bo easy to beat.

It is a curimis axd rather startling fact
that next to tho urtlcius entering into food
and clothing ptipor Is tha most universally
nsed oomrocxiitT in the world. It would
be an almost impossible task to And in
any civlliroU community a parson or boat-
Bess oonoarn that does, not to a greater or
leas dogSM rusho use of paper in some of
It various forma. Some philosopher ho
said that tbe clvllli tticn and prosperity of
a country mar be mensured by it con
sumption of paper. If this is as Xalr an
index aw U sue ins npon reflection to be
reasonable, statistics provo the United
States to bave distanced all the other na
tion of th world in the race of true de
velopment. Perhaps no line of business
has bad a mora remarkablo growth in the
United State the past 10 years than tbe
tMDer makin Industry. Thi is true In all
branches, but especially so in the line of
book and new print papers. The Ameri
can people are a nation of readers, and the
rapidly decreasing prices of books and
newspapers bave greatly Increased tbe con
sumption of paper in these two lines. One
or two cent will purchase a massof reading
matter in tbe form of our great dallies,
oonsiatlng of from 8 to 10 pagoe, while 19
to 0 cents will purchase handsomely
bound and attractive book of standard
and popular authors. . ; '
The daily output of news print paper in
the United States is about 1,200 to 1,600
tons. Just think of 125 or 160 carloads of
newspapers mentally devoured each day in
this country I The production of news
print la largor than any other grade. That
of book paper is probably as much as 1,000
tons and of writing 450 tons each daily.
It will be Interesting here to quote some
of the figures of the paper Industry In the
United States as compiled by The Paper
Trade Journal. The gross daily capacity
of the paper mills of the United States in
operation during 1893-8 for all kinds and
grades of paper was estimated at about
10,000 tons. Of this amount nearly 8, 500
tons represented news print and book pa
per, 1,800 tons wrapping paper, 850 tons
strawboard, 460 tons writing paper and
almost 8,400 tons of the various other
kinds and grades. The states which rank
first In the production of paper are New
York, Maine, Massachusetts, Wisconsin,
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois. From
these seven states come nearly three
fourths of the entire paper supply of the
country. By far the greater port of the
vast output is consumed In the United
States, the greatest paper using country
In the world. In foreign markets, how
ever, American paper Is gaining a firm
' The greatest consumption of printing
paper Is In the Sunday editions of the met
ropolitan dailies, which often require from
60 to 100 tons for a single issue. With the
rapidly increasing output prices bave as
rapidly declined, until today a grade of
news print paper worth 85 years ago 18
cents or 14 cents per pound is now sold
at 8X cents to 8 cents a decline in price
nnequaled In the history of any other In
dustry. This enormous decrease in the cost of
paper is due especially to the introduction
of wood as paper stock. Today it is the
principal material used in the manufac
ture of paper for all but the highest grades
of book and writing. News print and not
only 'ordinary but even -very attractive
qualities of book paper are made entirely
of wood. Another means conducive to
this phenomenal reduction of cost has been
the Improvement in methods of making
wood pulp. The perfection and greater
efficiency attained in paper mSklng ma
chinery, rendering much larger production
easily possible in a given time, have add
ed materially in this downward trend of
price. Philadelphia Times

It might be thought that the subject of
the following description could dwell only
In some one's fancy, but it is reliably stat
ed that she lives in a London suburb. She
has, it appears, a parlormaid, a housemaid
and a cook, each of whom has a special
serving woman to wait on her. These
three subservants do not live in the house,
but come punctually every morning at 7
o'clock to prepare an early meal for the
fortunate domestics. They carry this meal
to the rooms of the cook, the housemaid
bnd the pariormald, and after giving it to
them on neat little trays proceed to make
the kitchen and servants hall ready for
their thrco mistresses. '
But even the servants are not quite so
much pampered as the pet animals of the
house. A favorite dog, lately deceased,
was taught to refuse any midday meal ex
cept fresh roast chicken. When his dog
ship's health began to fail, his fond mis
tress had her bed made on the floor, so
that she could attend to his wants. When
he died, he was buried in a shroud of pole
blue satin and silver covered with white
flowers, and in his memory every one In
the house, even the serving women, re
ceived a pin set with precious- stones. A
largo family of cats resides in the garden
at the back of the house, where they live
luxurious lives, daily receiving all the
dainties of the season. New York Sun.

A TRYING POSITION.
Matters bad come to a crisis between
myself and landlady. My bill was sadly
in arrears, and Mrs. Ringwoodie, having
passed from frowns to words and from
words to importunity, had ended with a
peremptory demand for payment.
Not being ready or having the ready
to comply with her requirement, I had
nothing for it but to vacate my room
and surrender my night key, the former
being wanted, I was given to under

what was best to be done.
A grave looking gentleman sat oppo

are!" said the gentleman, whose tone
left it doubtful whether he spoke to him

look, "here's that bank robbery, nearly

placed in my bands.
I was formally detained till next
morning when Mrs. Ringwoodie and
several of her boarders, the former being
kind enough not to mention my little
delinquency toward herself, gave so
good an account of me and proved so
clearly that I was quietly at home on
the night of the robbery that I was dis

whose constitution was completely
broken down, is eured by Ayer'e
Sarsaparilla. He writes:.
" For eight years, I was, most of the
time, a great sufferer from constipa
tion, kidney trouble, and indiges
tion, so that my constitution seemed
to be completely broken down. I was
induced to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and
took nearly seven bottles, with suoh
excellent results that my stomach,
bowels, and kidneys are in perfect con
dition, and, in all their functions, as
regular as clock-work. At the time
t began taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla, my
weight was only 129 pounds ; I now can
brag of 159 pounds, and was never In so
good health. If you could see mo be
fore and after using, yon wonld want
me for a traveling advertisement.
X believe this preparation of Sarsaparilla
to be the best in the market to-day."
