the passage of a measure creating a new

and considerable work was exp? dded

stated that he had already spoken In
Xew York, Philadelphia and some of
the other large cities. Ho is a splen?
did pulpit orator, und his interesting
subject was admirably handled. He
gave a better Idea of the country nnd !
the conditions there than most people
pessess. explained that Brazil Is a
country larger than the United States
(Alaska excepted), that It hod, how?
ever, but fifteen million Inhabitants, ,
that but fifteen per cent of the people
could read. He told of the settlement
of the country by the Portuguese, by
whom It Is governed to this day, and
gave other interesting dlscrlptions of
this little known country nnd people.
