The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,

rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an

Some progressive genius lias made a com-
mrigon between the population of the
United States and that of various European
XMintrics, bused upon the latest statistics.
lesays: "Compared with the great na-
ions of Europe, the United States show a
renter population than any except Russia,
which contains over seventy-two millions
ot inhabitants. Against our .'50,152,539,
Germany shows 42,727,300; Austria-IIun-
ary, 37,:il ,420 ; France, 8P.905,78S ; Great
Ihitain and Ireland. 04. 1(10,000; Italv.
.'""iW.lio; Spain, 111,520,511. The total
lopulution of Europe is given by the Al-
manacli de Gotha as 311,703,713. Hence
we have even now only about one-sixth as
many inhabitants, though our are(a and
that of Europe as a whole are nearly equal."
And here is a list of the ei'dit larsest states
in the Union with somo facta in regard to
them: "The curb t lunrcst states in the
Union are iu the order named: (1) New
York, (2) Pennsylvania, (3) Ohio, (4) Illi
nois, (5) Missouri, (0) Indiana, (7) Mass
achusetts, (8) Kentucky. The aggregate
population ot these states in losO was
!a,221,475, and in 1870 it was 19,224,709.
They had then just about one-half the total
population ; they now fall short of it by
nearly two millions."

"Happy New Year, Mrs. Stooks; hope I

Sprinyfldd llqmllican: Edward At
kinson, than whom lio nutu is nioro
able to express au opinion, says that
we do not begin as yet to appreciate tlio
magnitude of Uic wealth to be reaped
from cotton! culture iu this country,
llo says the present crop of cotton
will bii 25 per cent larger than that
ever raised by tlaves, that is, it will
exceed 6,000,000 bales. If it bo of that
amount, it will produce 3,000,000 tons
of cotton seed, besides seed fur plautiug,
which will yield 00,000,000 gals, of oil,
1,300,000 toiu of oil cake, and 1,500,000
tons of hulls suitablo for making pa
per. Each ton of oil seed meal will
keep live sheep six mouths. Thus tho
cotton seed crop will support millions
of sheep and return to tho laud tho
fertilizer needed to grow more cotton.
. llo further says that the present cot
I ton acreage of tho South, covers less
I than 2 percent of the cotton-growing
I area in tho U. S.
