Exactly how ' many people there

Aa long ago as 186S, Behm, a lead
big German authority, estimated the
population of the earth at 1,400,000,
000. In 1880, the same authority set the
figures at about 100,000,000 more. He
did not base the new estimate on
the natural increase of the people of
the world, but explained that more
accurate figures and estimates bad
enabled him to guess more closely.
Two years later Mr. Behm estimat
ed tbe earths population at 22,000,
000 less than iu 1880, tne decreasebT
ing accounted for by the fact that
uew investigations had compelled the
reduction of the estimated population
of China from something over 400,-
000,000 to about 350,000,000.
rrohablv the estimate for the year
1891, made by a lcarucd German
statistician, is the most nearly accu
rate of any vet made 1,430.000,000.
It is believed that the world's pop
ulation is increasing at the rate of
nearly 6,000,000 a year.
The most populous contiucut is
Asia, which contains two countries
China and India whose swarming
millious outnumber the people of all
the other countries of the continent.
The most densely peopled continent
Is, of course, Europe. The number
of people in Europe is known with a
great degree of accuracy. There arc
about 360,000,000; and the continent
which accommodates all these peo
ple is so small that there are upon it
an average of ninety-three people to
the square mile.
The peop!c Upon ths two conti
nents of North aud South America,
without the Artie regions, are less
than 122,000.000 iu number, or ouly
eight iu the square mile.
Whcu Americans as densely popu
lated as Europe, this half of the world
will have a population of nearly 1,
400.000.000 practically the same as
that of the whole World at tho pres
ent time. The Youth't Companion.

A few days ago a man iu Pennsyl
vania married the yonnger sister ef
the wife of bis ton, and the news
papers there are amusing themselves
with Agnriag ont the relationships
which this marriage creates. The
bride became the mother-in-law of
her elder sister and the latter tbe
dangbter-in-Iaw of her yonnger sister.
Tbe father and son become brothers-
in-law and tbe children of the son, of
whom there are five, become th
grandchildren of their aunt.
This is very simple compared to tbe
problem which was proposed for so
lution some years ago, when it was
asserted that there were two families,
whom we mar call Smith end Jones,
which proceeded to mix themselves
up in a way that puzzled students of
genealogy and would have driven a
whole college of heralds crazy.
Mr?. Smith was a widow with a
daughter, aud Mr. Jones was a
widower with a son. Jones, Sr., mar
rtcd the daughter and Jones, Jr, the
mother. There were children born
to each marriage, and then the ques
tion arose. What relation were the
children to each other and what and
bow many kinds of relationship did
they bear to their parents? This life
is not long enough to untangle the
skein, but we remember that one
brilliant genius, after spending a great
deal of time and labor over the
problem, triamphautly announced as
his conclusion of the vexed qucstiou
that all the children were their owu
grandfathers and grandmothers.
We sometimes hear it said, "So and
so is only a relation by marriage," and
we do not stop to think that all legiti
mate relationships arc ef this kind.
The law in all civilzed coHUtries regu
lates all relationships with much rare,
fixing the degree of kindred, but
every one, if it be reduced to its
lowest terms, is a relationship by or
by virl ue of marriage.
In America a distinction in terms
is made which docs uot seem to ob
tain in Englaud. Here the term
"stepfather" has a very different
meaning from v "father-in-law," but
many of the best Euglh-h writers of
fiction speukofthc stepfather as the
father-in-law. The term is probably
more nearly correct than stepfather,
but it is decidedly confusing and per
plexing to the Amerirau reader uho
see it for the first time.
