GREAT DIVERSITY OF TONGUE
Over Four Thousand Languages Arn
Spoken and Written by Va.
How many persons know how man)
1languages there are in the w'orldl
The average inan's knowledge or abil
ItY to speak languages rarely exceedE
two besides his native tongue. The
Emperor Francls Joseph, when visit
ing a Ied Cross hospital, spoke with
the patients in their own languages,
It may appear strange, but it Is nev
ertheless true, that there are over 4,
000 languages spoken by mankind,
while the number of dialects exceeds
this. There are more than sixty vo
cabularies in Brazil, and in Mexico the
INahua Is broken up into some 700 di.
lalects. There are hundreds in Borneo,
while in Australia there is no classi
fying the complexities. Let .-s as
sume that 50 dialects, on an average,
belong to each language, and N.- have
the colossal total of a quarter of a ml
lion linguistic abilities.
A century hence the probability is
that there will be only four languages
'of importance i the world. Central
Eiuropo may produce a newer and more
straight forward German language,
English may reign alone over the
Nqrth American continent, and a more
business-like Spanish will be used in
South American states, while Russia
may take on somen more rich Slavonic
dialect, which will blend the races of
eastern Europe andt(] central Asia Into
a harmonious federation.

Many an overfed dyspeptIle, sidden

chronic skin derangement of mainy

that a new vigor and rest of life has

Not everyone can spend his whole
