R tXT IMCRIASrS,
At the prrmit hour tbe peoples of tbe
United KTin-idom aud tbe United State rep
rwent about one-Rfteentb of huuuuiity, aad
gorern one-third 4 tiie planet and one-fourth
of iu inhabitants. In the beginning of the
Eighteenth century Uiis rare numlx-red lexa
than 6,OIU.iWl a-uls; at tbe beginning of the
Nineteenth century tbat they iiK-rea-ted to
3X5).ftO; at the present tiine tbeT are about
Mi,)i.MX latliepaceof eighty years the
F.ug'.ub speaking peipla multiplied Are
tinias orer. and it coott-leotly revliuned that
within another hundred years they wdl bare
outnumbered all tbe other civilized peoples
pnt together. M. Knmmer, the chief of the
Federal bureau of statistics in Switzerland,
has reckoned that tbe total population of
Europe in the year S.OuO win he 5.000.000,
while Dr. Strong, of Sew YVk, reckon tbat
in 19) tbe population of Europe will be
S54.(U).0uJ. 'o complete statUtics showing
the average increaw all over Europe are
available for tbe early decades of tbe century,
but tbe average increase of the continent for
Uie ten yean from lJ-TK to 1) was S s.
If, however, we were to apply the same
test to tbe EngUh po.pl o and suppose them
to multiply f. aootner hundred year a they
did from 1470 to 1 -.. they would reach the
enormou total of 1.343.H).0. It would be
nurtwmnabie, hcvever, to suppose tbat tbe
ratio of iiicreaie wiU continue so long. Dr.
Strong ba.a his calculations in this way: In
Great Britain tbe ratio of uscrea-w from IS)
tolViOwa 2 49 percent.; during tbe next
ten years it was 5 44; the next ten years it
was 6.10, and front 170 to Is it was 10.57
per cent. So we see tbe ratio of increase
sLMVlily ruing for forty year, and there tt no
apparent reae! w by it should not continue
to rla. Hut as be to dueling with so long a
period of time as a hundred years. Dr. 8trong
prefers to suppoe that tbe average ratio of
uicreaas fir the century will be only one-half
what it has lei during tbe hut decade, aad
an pots tbe probable pnpulatK-n of Great Brit
ain in lieu at S7,000.0uu.
On the other band the Swis statistician
files it f'ir 2.0UO at 142,OOU.OU1. Accepting,
however, tbe American estimate, let as con
sider tbe other branches of the English
speaking people. The Australian rate of in

With these figures before bun. Dr. Strong
M. Cummer cobftoes bis investigation to Eu

to tbe lie-Tee- of birth over deaths, leaving

Tbe total Augio-Sexou pupulaU-in of tbe
world would tba be 7lJ,ouu,lMJ. as compared
with W4.uuu,Uof CooUnenUl Europe. And
It must I -a remembered that these figures
show the largest probable population of Eu
rope and tLe smallest probable numbers of
the English speaking race.
In face of these tremeniixus figures it is
well to be reminded that if tbe whole of the
English speaking population of the world
multiplied as tbey are kkely to be at the end
of aiibiber century wwe to be planted down

LIFE IN THE RHINELAND.

The German ''Kirniess,1 analogous to our
ytarly village fairs, or feasta," as they are
caUed in tbe north of England, originated
In long past years in tbe celebration of tbe
anniversary of tbe rbnrch dedication. But
now it has gradually hist all t religious
meaning, and has come to be looked upon aa
general holi lay a day for feasting and
Indeed, tbe little village in which we at
tended (writes a correspondent from Khina
laadl the "KinDee." couldnt boast of a
church at all; for the church goers, if tbert
were any, bad to walk two miles to tbe next
town. On our arrival we were confronted
by crowd opposite tbe principal wirths
hsus," a youug man declaiming to the ell'
lagan from an Inverted tub. We couldnt
catch all of what be was saying, but be teamed
to be telling every one to be happy and to
enjoy lb.mej.lre. and be drank at interval
a glass of white wine, with a tut) of lemon
in it, to tbe health of tbe community, amid
general cheering. Presently he got down
from hui tub, and then tbe &idlrs struck up,
aad couples began to gyrate around a May
pole, deMorated gayly with pine trees. Bags
and flowers. Tbey danced iu perfect time
and rhythm, even "reversing'' to perfection.
After the inaugurating dam round the
maypole tbey all adjourned to the inn, where
tba fun eraa long carried on, with elterna
tiunt of beer drinking in tbe neighboring
garden. Presently tbe chief "hauer" tor
email farmer) of tbe village came ap to at
and politely, with a deep bow, requested tbe
ladies to do him tbe honor of a dance. We
accordingly each in turn Joined the whirling
couples, and had hardly sat down and recov
ered our pristine coolness wbea the young
man who bad bald forth on the tub itbe vil
lage shoemaker's wm, we afters, ards learned)
approached us. with a comrade. He bowed,
aad asked as oJoin a village lottery, for a
"spWfid shawl W all signed our names
to tbe lottery list, and then anon by our
gvwere.t r he offered to repeat again bin in

tbat I !sv not added to it and improved it."
One. hing te tbe poem amused us. Every

hi sural y better than tbat adoted at similar
feast in Northumberland, where tbe vil
lagers s.y fourpenca each to tbe fiddler for
each pi rtner. so that the mean member of
the cox unuuity stick to only one partner for
the evtoing, aad tbe plain or otherwise on
uteresing damsels per bans feel that they
era not even worth fourpem-e. The win
and tenon was given to us all around to
taste, and our healths were drunk, and
"now, said tbe young man, " must be
going, the girls will be com4slning that
we ha e not danced with them." Tbe girls
of our ssrty seemed to think this but remark
Our : needs departed, contiuues our corre

for ou- old milk woman, who lived in tbe
village bad invited as all to tea and we must
not ket p ber waiting. We found her cottage,
ami cli ubed up tbe steep chicken ladder to
ber nett little room, where a table covered
with a enowy cloth groaned under the cakes
the got 4 woman had baked for us. iLife in
Genua it, ft must b confessed, consists,
among the well-todo at least, of au unceas

The ni ikwoman was a neat, trim old lady,
over 00. with cheek like rosy apples. She
would not be induced to join us at tbe table,
but bn ught ber coffee cup to a modest dis
tance. She ived all alone, and at ber advanced
age carried milk twice daily to and from tbe
town, distance of four miles. She had five
cows in a stable near, and ber only compan

taught surprising number of took. On

One "f my companions, a fun loving, ro

woman took the matter seriously, and said,
with a i-ather dignified air, "My son does not
think of marrying yet. And be most not
have a line lady wife, wbo would not work."
Oh." cried the young lady, "that does not
matter. You shall bv with us and do th
cooking and I will make the room pretty
with cu. -tains, etc Tn old woman frowned ;
she evidently was in dety inward cogitation.
"But b baa no money to marry with," she
at length objected; "be sends his savings to
me twice a year; be' a good eon to his old
mother. "Oh," said tbe young woman, "1
