tndln Nation! In America.
There nro today in tho United Btatc8
less than 800,000 Indians, including nil
tho partially civilized and tho wild tribes.
In Central America and Moxico there- nro
about 0,000,000. In South America they
aro estimated nt T,000,000. Tho philolo
gists, whoso w orks in etwl1ng and clas
sifying native languages of tho Now
World aro of gieat value, have recog
nized nbout 700 separate nnd distinct
tongues, of which 4 U0 belong to North
America and 330 to South America. Tlio
languages represent as many eeparato
nations or tribes w liich onco existed here.
Many of tho nations aro extinct, par
ticularly those vhlch inliabited tho At
lantic states of tho Union, but fragments
nt least of their speech hnvo been pre
served by writers v ho v ero contemporary
with them. These languages wero not
mere dialects of the same tongue, but nre
completo each in itself nnd distinct tho
ono from tho other, nil conforming to de
mands that enable the philologists to clas
sify them in their ethnological as well ns
linguistic relations. Tho testimony of
these languages seems to declare that tho
temperato legions of North America were
tho corresponding regions of thn southern
continent, which onco supported a denso
population nnd still maintains many mill
ions of tho nboiiginal races.
Tho Spanish conquerors had always
two great objects in view. Ono was to
secure gold, tho other to propagato their
religion. They had no desire to destroy
tho natives. They killed when it ap
peared necessary in order to carry out
their objects, but otherwiso their policy
was to interfere as littlo as possible with
with them, nnd having conquered, to
protect and prescn o tho original inhab
itants. Civilization penetrated thoso
countries by slow degrees and the simplo
Indians were not much exposed to its
withering touch. As a consequence thero
aro in South and Central America and
Mexico today moro than 13,000,000 of
tho aboriginal races. In tho vast region
of tho United States where there wero
people who constituted tribes or nations
enough to represent several hundred lan
guages thero aro today about 250,000
only of tho people who represent tho an

That tho rind or skin of all fruit is
moro or less indigestible, is a fact that
should not bo forgotten. "Wo say all
fruit, and tho statement must bo under
stood to include tho pclIicIo of kernels
and nuts of all kinds. Tho edible part of
fruit is peculiarly delicate, and liablo to
rapid decomposition if exposed to tho
atmosphqre; it is, therefore, a wisopro
ision of nature toplaco a strong and im
pervious coating oer it, ns a protection
against accident, and to prevent insect
enemies from the seed within. Tho skin
of plums is w onderf ully strong compared
with its thickness, and resists tho action
of water and many solvents in n remark
able manner. If not thoroughly masti
cated before taken into tho stomach tho
fckin is rarely, if ever, dissolved by tho
gjkstrio juice. In some cases pieces of it
adhere to the coats of tho stomach as wet
paper clings to bodies, causing moro or
loss distui banco or inconvenience.
Raisins nnd dried currants aro particu
larly troublesonio in this way, and, if not
chopped up before cooking, should bo
thoroughly chewed before swallowing.
If a dried currant passes into tho stom
ach whole it is never digested at nil. In
tho feeding of domestic unimals this fact
should bo kept in mind. If grain and
leguminous seeds nro not crushed or
ground, much of tho food is often swal
lowed wholo and the husk or pellicto
resists tho solvents of tho 6tomach. caus
ing a considerable ss of nutriment.
Birds, being destitt of teeth, nre pro
vided with n special .ipararus for grind
ing their seed, namel; , tho gizzard. Tho
indigestibility of certain nuts is partially
duo to tho brown skins. Blanched al
monds, on this account, aro moro digest
iblo than thoso which havo not been so
treated. Popular Scienco News.
