UNLIKE TEA & COFFEE-GOOD F OR THE NERVES. :
The claims of cocoa as a useful artic'e of diet are steadily
winning- recognition. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not onlv a
o r ' j
stimulant but a nourisher; and it has the great advantage of
leaving no narcotic effects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. The strong may take it with pleasure, and the weak
to SIouteh'S Cocoa

Not gn-ater than the wealth of America
was the fabled wealth of the Indies. There
are a thousand Americans worth $1,000,000
or more. There are at least five Amer
icans richer t ban Croesus of nongand story.
The wealth of the Duke of Westminster,
whose fortune ithe prreatest in Kurope, is
at a careful estimate 10,000,000, or fcW.OOO,
000, and it is the accumulation of a Ion?
ancestry. Most of the American fortunes
are the accumulation of a single Kent-ration.
The tiKiCTVate wealth of the Rothschilds
readies nearly $1,000,000,000, but it U dis
tributed nmonn so many that no individual
R.itlisr-bild is worth over ?40.(K1,(KJ0. The
Vamlerbilt family wealth fwts up nearly
f-"i(),o.M.o;),) and is held in comparatively
few h.iuil v There are scon's of Americans
who are richer than any ruling monarch
of the eastern hemisphere. The incomes
of many innnirclis are Inre, but they are
derived from the civil lists of the countries
over which they hold sv:iy, and do not rep
resent the accretions of their own fortunes.
As a people tne Aiiierieans are the rich
est in t lie world. Money is more easily ao
tiuire.l here than anywhere else, and it is
likewise more lilier.illy spent. What are
considered moderate fortunes here are in
other lands rearde l as stticndotis i;i;re
nations of wealth. There arc no such op
portunities of nvikliv money in other
countries as in this, ami therefore it may
be expected that the m.nils r of American
millionaires will le multiplied and the
fortunes of the present millionaires dou
bled, tripled and quadrupled within the
next two decades. New York World.
The liest ami Truest Americana.
It is evident that the makers of America
Ik'Ioiij; to the middle ranks of society, and
that here is the center of our hopes in re
K'trd to the nation. The ri-h families
cannot In- larre in nuinlsT w it li u, nor
can they maintain in successive genera
tions their hereditary pie.tir The war
broke up the old order of thine at the
south, and the fact that at the nortli there
is no room for the man who is simply a
gentleman of leisure has prevented the
jeople who represent social distinction
from taking an active part in the legisla
tive life of the country. The old families
have less influence today than they ever
had, and the leaders in legislation, in the
professions, in making and guiding public
opinion, ami in contributing to the pros
perity of the country are, for the most
part, men who have come from the ener
getic middle chiss families everywhere.
These arc the men who havederived most
benefit front our institutions and liest un
derstand how they are to lie still further
developed. We do not care how rich a man
is, nor w holds grandfather was, but we ask
what his capacity may be and what his vir
tuesare, and we give him our confidence
chiefly on the basis of what he is and what
he can do. This current opinion as to what
constitutes famil excellence has a wonder
ful elTect in the shaping of American fami
lies. If the making of money is the ambi
tion of most Americans, there is a second
ary ambition that concentrates itself in the
integrity and purity ami strength of the
homes of honeM and industrious and intel
ligent neoiile. lloston Herald.
