G~old Productiom of 1897.
The Director of the Mint, from in
formation nowv at hand, say s that
there is substantial evidence that the
world's product of gold for the calen
dar year 1897 will approximate if not
exceed, $240,000,000, an increase of
nearly 20 per cent over 1S9G. The
gold product of the 'United States for'
19G was $53,100,000; for 1897 i
will approximate $01,500,000, an in
erease of $8,400,000.
The indications for the United
States are that Colorado will lead in
the production of gold for 1897, as is
estimated by ex-Governor Grant that
it will n.> be less than $20,000,000.
Caifor'nia will follow, with a produet
of probay $19,000,000. with the ex
ception of thei states of the south ap
palachiar~ range, it is believed that
there wviil be an increase in every pro
d:uing' state and territory of the gold
product over that of 189G.- iver

Russian Adm ini.r::ive .a:citne.
The czar may po qualities aml
virtues which, r.nder a happier system
might bear fruit i_ the prosperity of hi:
people, but he, like his subjects, i:
crushed by the administrative machine
from which, in lussia, there is no es
cape. A new czar has as little initiativt
and is as much at the nmercy of perm'a
nent officials as is the chief of an Eng
lish department reading in the house o
commons the elaborate evasions of hi:
head clerks. If he were really a despot,
it might be well; for a benevolent des
pot is an excellent thing, but he is n(
more than the irresponsible head of at
evil system which is founded on repres
sion, ignorance, darkness and slavery.
The chief object of the Russian bureau
cracy, whatever official apologists mad
say, is to exclude the light; to hold the
people in a blind, superstitious obedi
ence; to punish, imprison and banisl
those who would teach the niserablb
mujik that he is a man and not a rod
ka filled beast, that the peasant has hi
rights as well as the czar and an equa
claim to happiness and freedom.
This is why political discussion is
forbidden in Russia, why every bool
which opens the windows of the mind,
even though of pure science and philoso
phy, is prohibited by the censorshil
and why every unorthodox dissente:
who questions the claims of the success
or of Ivan a-:d Paul and Catherine t<
mediate with God for the people is re
garded as disloyal and is treated a,
such. A syste:n like this would neve:
have been tolerated by any race of ener
gy and intelligence, as Englishmen hav
often taught both popes and kings. Bu
the Slav people, of an oriental type, pa
tient, sluggish, mystic and ignorant be
yond all imagination, bear and suffer
and allow themselves to be driven, like
sheep to the slaughter, into the armie
of the czar.-Nineteenth Century.
Even if it were possible for man t
live without breathing air he could no
exist on the earth if it were without a:
atmosphere. Plants derive carbon, th
most important element of their food
from the air, and without plants ther
could be no food for animals, and there
fore no human beings. Water als
comes from the atmosphere, but if thur
were no water there could be neithe
plants nor animals. If food and wate
could be supplied in some other way
the world would still be unhabitable b
plants and animals owing to the severi
ty of the cold. Without an atmospher
there would be no winds, and conse
quently no waves or ccan currents
The sea-if we may suppose one to hav
been supplied by some unknown caus
-would be a stagnant pool, uninhabit
able by seaweed or fish. -Exchange.
A Thoughtful Girl.
"No wonder the pleasures of court
ing have declined," said the stou
youth. "Just look at the flimsiness c
these modern chairs."
And he pointed to a slender affair c
white bambeo, touched with gilt.
"You mustn't judge by appearances,
said the stout girl softly. "I've ha
that thair thoroughly braced with th
very best of steel rods, and it is noi
guaranteed to stand a pressure of 6
pounds to the square inch."
Then they both sat down in it as
final test.-Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The most remarbable goldbugs in the
world are found in Central America.
They belong to t genus Plusictis,
and one might eai..ly imagino a speci
men to be the work of some clever artif
ier in maetal. The. head and wing cases
are brilliantly p;oished, with a lister
as of gold itself. To right and touch
they have all th: seeming ;f metal, and
it is hard to rt alze that the crea; ure is
a mere animal. Oddly eno gh, there
is another species of Plusioti3 from the
same region, which has the appearanco
of being wrought in solid silver, freshly
burnished. These gold and silver beetles
have a market value. They are worth
from $25 to $50 each. The finest collec
tion of them in existence today is owned
by Walter Rothschild of the English
banking firm. Though a young man,
only 25 years of age, he has already
spent $200,000 on beetles. Every year
he scds two men to Central America
to gather beetles. Ono of the Inost beau
tiful bugs in the world is a small beetle
known to science as the blue Hoplia.
Its back is an exquisite iridescent sky
blue, and the under part of its body is
of a bright silver hue. The notion that
it contains silver is widely entertained,
and attempts have frequently been made
to extract silver from it.-Buffalo Coin
