H I STERNER SEX MAKING GAINS
W4II Soon Be More Numerous Than
H Women, It Is Thought.
H Frau Gnnuck-Kuehno Is one of the
H greatest German authorities on the
H modern feminist movements and at-
H tcr mature study and the collection of
H statistics she lias come to tho con-
H elusion that the superfluity of women
H In so ir.any European countries is a
fact which In the first placo is in no
H sense an evil and in tho second placo
M is rapidly disappearing.
M In another twenty years, she be-
M lioves, tho tide will begin to turn tho
M other wny and tho men will be In
M the majority even in such countries
M as England and Germany, wboio at
M the present tlmo women immensely
fl predominate. Somo of her statistics
H arc most interesting. In Luxembourg,
for example, In 1890, there wcro !,
M 002 women for every 1,000 men.
H Thcro nro now only 90!). In
H Austria tho proportion hns been re-
M duccd in the samo tlmo from 1,044 to
H 1,035, in Hungary from 1,015 to 1,009,
M in Switzerland from 1,057 to 1,035,
M In Sweden from 1,005 to 1,049, in Gor-
H many from 1,040 to 1,032, in England
H from 1,055 to 1,047. Sho does not be-
B Hove that any European nation except
H Russia will long continue to Increaso
M rapidly in proportion. England has
H begun to follow tho cxnmplo of
H Franco and Germany will certainly
M follow in Englnnd's footsteps.
B In all "advanced" European states
M the birth rnto Is either becoming sta-
M tionary or begins to show a back-
H ward tendency.
fl At tho end of ono of tho meetings
H of the International Sanitary Congress
M in Washington a young layman asked
M Surgeon-General Wyman a question
M about tho construction of the throat.
M "If tho throat wcro constructed like
H that," said General Wyman, smiling,
fl "there would bo more truth in tho fllp-
M pcrty-flap story than thcro really Is."
H "The filppcrty-llap story7" mur-
M mured tho young man, dazed.
H "Yes. Did you ever hear It?" Listen,
B "A quack medicine vender stood In
M a carriage selling a cough cure. To
H explain tho construction of tho throat
H ho said:
H "'Ladles and gents, In your throat
H Is two little flaps, ono closing when
H swallowing food and opening to re-

H when swallowing liquids and opening

H .Why He Liked Venice.
H Marlon Crawford gave recently a
H dinner in Rnmo and dr Ing tho din-
H ner tho talk turned to V lice.
H "Thcro is a young Is 'y from Du-
H luth," Mr Crawford snld, "whom I met

A couple evidently from an exceed-
lngly rural district recently presented I
themsolvcs at the home of a Buffalo I
minister and nnnounced that they I
wished to be married. The would-be I
bride was of a homeliness to cause
ono less pity for the blind, but tho
groom scorned satisfied, and as they
possessed tho necessary license the
minister proceeded to perform tho
"How much dew that tome to, par
son?" tho man Inquired, bringing a
handful of silver chango from n deep
trousers pocket. "Name yer regular
flgrer that you charge th' swells. I'm
a-goin' th' limit, by jinks."
"Oh, I have no regular charge," tho
minister said; "Just give mo whnt you
think It is worth."
Tho groom turned and eyed tho
brido in a speculative manner.
"She's a good gal, ef sh ain't much
on looks," ho said, thoughtfully, "an
I'll bo gosh dcrned ef sho ain't wuth
a dollar an' forty-flvo cents!"
Ho was about to and over tho sil
