N0T A NATION OF SAVERS
In the Matter of Thrift the United
State It Far Behind European
A table prepared by Dr. Henry S.
Williams for Moody's Magazine places
the United States at tbo bottom of a
list of 15 countries as a nation of sav
ers The comparison is on thq, num
ber of savings bank depositors per
thousand of population and ranges
from 554 in Switzerland to 99 in this
country. Denmark, Norway, Sweden,
Belgium and New Zealand follow the
Swiss. Franco leads the big nations,
then come Holland, Germany, Eng
land, Australia, Japan and Italy.
Our 10,800,000 depositors, with their
$4,728,000,000 deposits, or almost $440
per depositor, may be contrasted with
Germany's 22,500,000 depositors with
but $4,942,000,000, or only $189 per
head. The United Kingdom has al
most 15,000,000 depositors, but only a
little over $1,250,000,000. Franco has
nearly as many depositors with a cou
ple of hundred millions less, but this
takes no account of the investments
of French thrift. Russia has 8,000,000
depositors, but only $800,000,000 be
tween them. Austria has 6,500,000,
with about the same amount as Great
Britain. Italy haB as many depositors
as Russia, but with one-fourth more
deposits, Japan has about 20,000,000
depositors, but they do not average $9.
The savings habit, it can be seen, is
very much more general abroad where
the opportunity is very much less,
Three-fourths of our saving 1b being
done In the New England and Eastern
States. Then come the Middle West,

Profitable Maine Industry.
Annually about fifteen thousand
pounds of spruce gum are gathered in
Maine, and practically nil of the crop is
harvested In March. Gum pickers earn
from one to six dollars a day. and as
the crop never fails they do fairly well.
The Maine crop is larger than all the
other states combined produce. Th9
gum picker wears steel climbing spurs
on his boots and In his belt he carries
a light hatchet Strapped to bis waist
Is a bag with a wide mouth for the re
ception of the gum. Climbing a treo,
the picker proceeds from limb to limb,
chipping off the lumps of gum as ho
finds them, until he reaches the top.
Most of tho gum Is caught In the wide
open bag as it falls from the treo,

CENTENARY OF GREAT EVENT
Native of India Honored Memory of
Missionary Who Taught Their
Few events grip the heart and in
terest of man sufficiently to command,
after 100 years, an international, or
even national, recognition. In purely
secular circles the fact that Adonlram
JudBon landed on Indian shores 100
years ago may excite little Interest,
but to the Christian world it was an
event second to but few in the history
of the Christian church.
At the opening service more than
3,000 native Christians filled to over
flowing the two largest audience rooms
In Rangoon, while hundreds were turn
ed away for want of room.
The second session was given to
reminiscences of Judson by those who
had seen him. It was notable that of
the five living missionaries who had
seen Judson all were women. These
were followed by a simultaneous pray
er service, it having been arranged
that at the same hour in America and
all Baptist mission fields they should
unite with the great centennial gather
ing in BlmultaneouB prayer.
The music of the -entire celebration
waB in charge of two choirs, a Burman
and a Karen, which rendered the most
difficult English anthems, quartets and
solos, to tho great delight and admira
tion of all present.
After three days at Rangoon tne
scene of the celebration was trans
ferred to Moulmeln for two days, and
then to Mandalay and other places of
interest, closing at Basseln on Decem
ber 30. Christian Herald.

If a Naturalist Painted.
If I were to paint tho short days of
winter I should paint two towering ice
bergs approaching each other liko
promontories, for morning and eve
ning, with cavernous recesses, and a
solitary traveler wrapping his cloak
about him aud bent forward against
the driving storm, Just entering the
narrow pass. I would paint the light
of a taper at midday, seen through a
cottage window, half buried in snow
and frost. ... In the foreground should
appear the harvest, and far in the
background, through the pads, should
be seen the sowers in the fields and
other evidences of spring. On tho
right and left of the approaching Ice
bergs the heavens should be shaded
off from tho light of midday to mid
night with its stars, the sun bolng low
in the sky. Henry David Thoreau.

Two questions seriously troubled
Rosle. Where was her father? Why
didn't Rachel have a beau? Rachel,
who was her mother, had long ago
concluded the child was an oddity and
paid little or no attention to her end
less queries and singular habits,
though oftentimes she would pause In
her work to gaze at Rosle, rocking to
and fro, with it kitten hugged tight in
her arms and singing In a shrill voice
a quaint little song.
Rachel invariably sighed. Her rela
tion to her child waB not of an inti
mate nature. She was always too over
worked to encourage friendliness and,
therefore, Rosle seemed strange and
remote. Romance enveloped her and
she lived in a world of her own crea
tion, far .amoved from her humblo
surroundings. She went to tho little
whitewashed schoolhouse on tho hill,
and at recess played with tho children,
but afterward sho came home and sat
on tho doorstep alone.
One day a little girl, who was ex
ceedingly small, but very important
because her father was tho store
keeper, began to owing on the school
yard gato add looked Rosle over with
"Why do you stick after us?" sho
"I don't," said Rosle quickly, "and I
think it's mean of you to say so."
"Oh, do you?'' cried the little girl.
"I'd like to know why, when my
mamma said it was a pity we respect
able children had to play with you,
and that you didn't have a father,
even, and "
"My father" Rosle paused. She
knew sho could say one of two things.
"He n away," she ended triumphantly.
"Away I Is he coming back?" she
asked, with newly awakened interest.
"Yes," said Rosle, "he Is coming
back some time," and suddenly she
turned and fairly flew down the sun
Rachel sat on the doorstep mending
a garment She was thin and trull,
with a pink flush on her sunken
cheeks and a burn In her darkeyes.
Sho smiled as the child rushed up and
let her work fall In her lap.
"Well, what is it?" she inquired,
"They all have 'em where Is my
father?" she cried, in little pants.
"When is he comln' back?"
"Comin' back?" Rachel echoed in

darted In her eyes "you haven't one,
even, and tell hor.so If she asks ycu
again. Little Idiots," she added, mere
to herself than to the child.
Rosle's arms had fallen limp at her
sides. Horror, astonishment and be
lief successively came In her face.
The nest morning in the schoolhouso
several of the children were gathered
around tho teacher, so Roslo shyly
Joined the group and heard the last
part of tho conversation.
"Little Lucy Harlow Is going to
start to school today, and you must all
be especially nice and kind to her, for.
she hasn't a father."
Oh! oh! Rosle's heart beat tumult
ously. At last there would be one of
Lucy Harlow and her mother came
In Just before the last bell rang. Rosle
did not attempt to probe the differ
once, but she knew Immediately that
Mrs. Harlow was curiously unlike the
other mothers in tho village.
One evening Rosle stood at the gate,
gazing up and down 'the road, until
finally her diligent watch was re
warded. A man, wearing a shabby
blue suit, a gay necktie, patent leather
shoes, and carrying a traveling bag,
Walked briskly towards her.
Rosle looked dubious. She knew

In the road, but until that moment sho
. bad not considered that it would be a
'very dirty, tired-looking Rachel. A
happy thought suddenly occurred to
"I tell you what!" Rosle raised her
shining eyesr "Come again 'bout dusk.
My mother will be homo by that
I "Well, 1 say" you're an uncommonly
polite little girl. I'll be back," and to
Rosle's astonishment, Prince Charm
ling lifted his hat and went leisurely
towards the village.
When her mother returned, sho
' "You beat all, you queer llttlo thing.
But I wouldn't dress for a soap agent
or a prince tonight, why, I'm actually
too tired to eat," and with a sigh she
sank wearily on the steps.
Down the road came the soap agent
"I am selling soap," ho began and
"Frank!" Bho cried, placing her
hand to her forehead In a piteous ef
fort to suppress her emotion.
He gazed at her dumb-struck, until
the appeal in her faded, bitter face
gave him understanding.
"Tell her," said the soap agent, and
there was an unmistakable tremor in
bis voice, "Prince Charming is here.'
