THJS WORLD 0F OURS.
Its Square Miles, Its Population and
Ito Births and Deaths.
Sometimes tins old world seems a
rather laFge place, and occasipuaHy
one gets the idea that there are a
great many people; but, after all,
there are only 53,OO9,000 square
miles of land on which w-e may
build houses and grow crops and
walk about, and there are only
fifteen hundred million persons to
do tfiese things. If the earth's pop
ulation were evenly apportioned to
the various continents and isJands
there would be twenfey-seren per
sons on eaeh square mile v. but, as
it is, there are 101.2 persons to
each square mile in Europe, 49.1
persons on a like area in Asia., 14.3
in Xorth America and only 3.5 in
Australasia. The polar regions arc
the really, lonely lands, lvowever,
for there the population is only six
hundredths of a person to the
square mile. The total population
oi the earth at the time of the death
of Emperor Augustus was not over
54,000,000, and the total popula
tion of Europe did not exceed 50,
000,000 before the fifteenth een
tury. The greatest depth of the Pacific
ocean is supposed to be nearly six
miles and that of the Atlantic four
and one-half miles.
The peoples of the world, nftrr
mueh contention, hare dirided
themselves into some fifty principal
The average duration of a human
life is about thirty-three years.
One-quarter of the people on tho
earth die before roacliing the age
of six, one-half before sixteen,
and only one person out of each
hundred born lives to be sixty-five.
It is calculated that every minute
there are sixty-seven deaths.,
9S,00G a day, or 35,000,000 a year.
Births take place at the rate of sev
enty a minute, 100,000 a day. or
36,000,000 each year. Chicago

' KNOWN THROUGH THE
COLUMNS OF THE
, Bank of England Notes.
One rarely sees a dirty Bank of
England note. That is because tho
bank never reissues a banknote.
Even if any one went into the bank
and demanded a five pound note in
exchange for five sovereigns and
then crossed to another counter and
changed the same note back into
gold that note-would be destroyed
The system is expensive, but by its
means the bank avpids many of the
risks of forgery. The affairs of the
Bank of England are conducted by
a governor and a deputy governor
elected from twenty-four directors
who are chosen fro.m the leading
merchant and private banking firms
in the city and generally server for
life. There are two branches in
London and ninein the country.
Wall Colors and Light.
In painting or papering the walls
of a room the question often arises
what color reflects the most and
what the least light. Recent ex
periments in Germany gave the
following results : Dark blue reflects
6y2 per cent of the light falling
upon it; dark green, about 10 per
cent; pale red, a little more than
1-6 per cent; dark yellow, 20 per
cent; pale blue, 30 per cent; pale
yellow, 40 per cent; pale green,
46 per cent; pale orange, nearly
55 per cent; pale white, 70 per
cent. Glossiness and varnish1 in
crease1 the amount of light reflected-.
