The Human Family.
The hunnan family living to day on
earth consists of about 1.4W0.00000 indi
ridualt; not lees; probably more. Theee
are distributed over the earth surface, so
that now there is no considerable part
where man is not found. In Asia. where
Ie was first planted, there are now ap
proximately about 800,000,000 densely
crowded: on ax average 120 to the square
mile. In Europe there are 320,000,000,
t-veraging 100 to the square mile, not so
crowded but everywhere dense, and at
points over populated. In Africa there
are 2100000~00(. In America North aad
ooutb there are 110,000,000 relatively
thinly scattered and recent. In the Is.
lands large and small probably 10,000.00
The extremes of the white and black are
as five to three; the remaining 700,000,000
Intermediate brown sad tawny. Of the
race 5b,(,00(,000 are well clothed-that is
wear garments of some kind to cover
their nakedness; 700.000.000 are semi
clothed covering inferier pts of the
body; ,0O00,000 are practically nasked.
Of the rage 000,000 live in houses
partly furnidlg with the appointments
of civilization; 700,000,000 is huts or
caves with no furnishing; oo0,000,000
have nothing that ean be called a home
are barbarous and savage. The range is
from the topmost round-the Anglo Sax
on civilisation which is the highest
known-down to naked savagery. The
portion of the race lying below the line
of human eoadition is at the very least
three-afths of the whole or 900,000,000.

Burglars-Qnite a number of residen

C(rope-The general reports are to the
effect that a very fair harvest will award
our farmers for their labors. Rice is
yielding well,cotton though backward,
promises a fair crop, but corn is eonui

there will hardly be an over abundance
