No importsnee is attached by th
leading physicians of this city to th
discovery of an alleged elixir of life b
Dr. B. F. Roberts, of Green Oity.Mo.
which was announced in diapatrlic
published a few days ago.
Dr. Roberts, according to the story
takes "life cells" from the lymphuti
glands of goats. These cells are trans
planted to the human bodv by hypodem
ic injeotions. It is asserted that thi
cells gives new life and strength to thf
Severn! eminent physicians of the
city laughed at the claim of Dr. Rob
erts that he had found an elixir ol
life, and said the mutt ?r was ?o al -
sard thut they did not wish to have
their names used as having even dis.
In reference to the elixir of lifr
which Dr. Brown-Sequard thought he
had found five years before his death,
in 1894, they said that the celebrated
physiologist lived to regret that he had
ever believed he had made such s> dis?
covery. Dr. Brown-Seqoard's actions
and talk at the time of his sensational
announcement were regarded aa marks
of his mental decline.

"No matter how self-pos?eseed a man
may appear on the surface, ' ' said a close
observer, "there are certain Involuntary
movements by which he will always
lietray himself to minute sorutiny. To
illustrate the point, here's a neat little
parlor trick In mind reading: 8eat
yourself dirootly in front of your sob
ject and tell him to hook his finger
tips together before his ohest and pull
as hard as he can, at the same time
thinking intently of some letter of the
alphabet. Then look fixedly at his right
eye and repeat the letters aloud, begin?
ning with A. When you come to the
one he is thinking about a swift, in.
describable change will flash across
the pupil. It is purely unconscious and
involuntary, and no human being alive
can prevent it. The purpose of finger
tip pulling is merely to distract his
thoughts and keep him from baffling
yon by concentration of will. Try it

production of |400 000,000. About |?1

It-tails which fill upthisstriki
picture are drawn chietly from the gc
fields of South Africa, Australia, t
Klondike and the United States. T
Booth African production iskniwn ai
report???! monthly by cable. Th" tot
for 1898 was about fSO.000,000. being!
increase ?if about *VI ,000,009 over tl
production of 1?5?7. The first foi
mouths of the present year have iud
1 an increase of :?4 per cent ov<
. which would afford a total pr
duct ion for the year of over IICMI.OOO
The recorded production of Austral!
for 1898 is about 868,000.0000, an ii
crease of $12,000,000 over 1887. F.ver
indication points to similar increase fc
1889, carrying the production for th
current year to 878,000,000.
The United States, which held fin
pteoa in gold production in 18'??? by
margin of #8 000,000 over Australasia
and clung to second place by a neck i
1897, will drop below both the leadin
competitors for 1898. The official pr(
limiuary ?sstima'e prepared by Directo
Roberts iu January put the productioi
in 1898 at r*?*."). 782,1177. Thin will b
slightly modified by the final revision*
but is not likely to be reduced. Th
report? of the United States mint a
San Francisco indicate that $16,890,68

Director Roberts puts the Oaliafornii

States production of 18H7 was $.")7,:i?i;i,
ihm). The increase of |8,000,000for 18'.?
will be duplicated for the curreut yeai
aud is likely to be increased next year,
Colorado, California, Sonth Dakotaanc
Montana are making a tremendous fighl
to increase their product, and the mine?
opened in Washington promise to be at
important factor in the near future.
The production of the Klondike dis
irict which appears in the returns foi
the Dominion of Canada was f?i,027,
ooo for 1887, and 11*1.700,000 for 1888.
A production of not less than #20,000,
??00 seems to be assured for 1889,
urs.siA an.? mxioo.
Other countries which will show con
siilerable Increases for 1888 over 1881
and again for the current year overl ist
year are Russia and Mexico. Russia is
likely to increase very materially the
product from the ri-er valleys of Siberia
within the next few years, in additiou
to the steady supply which i9 dug up
from the mines of the Ural. From all
over the world reports reach the mint
bureau of the increased productiveneis
of the gold mines nnder the stimulus of
improved machinery snd low cost of
incrra.se in the oor.r? output.
The gold production of the world had
already made immense strides within a
very few yean when Mr. Bryan made
his campaign for free silver in lsiw It
was estimated by tbe director of the
mint as early as 18U4 that the gold pro?
duction of the world available for mon?
etary use was already superior to the
average annual production of both gold
and silver from 1801 to 1873, inclnding
the year when the demonetization of
silver took plaoe This estimate was
abundantly fulfilled by the production
of the next few years. The gold pro?
duction alone rose from $110,196,900 in
1888 to |181,176,ti00 in 1894, being an
