The Daily Btatx tha nfiwst Jou&HAb prints ail THRIFT OF GERMAN PEOPLE. Billions of Dollars la Horns and Foreign Securities Held la the Fatherland. The thrifty Germans are piling up wealth in the form of cash and se curities at a rate which promises to make them of great importance as a creditor nation, according- to a writer in the St Louis Globe-Democrat. In view of the information sent to the state department atWash inton and lately given publicity, the course of the German govern ment is sticking close to the British government on the silver question is not surprising:. Germany has to a marked degree the same interests that Great Britain has in opposing; anything- that tends toward infla tion. Ilerr Miquel. the Prussian min ister of finance, according to the re port received by Secretary Gresham, estimates that the people of Prussia have at the present time $7,075,740,000 in stocks, bonds and loans. It is calculated that 25 per cent of the wealth of Germany is in vested in stocks and bonds and that this will probably rise to 40 or 5 ) per cent in the next generation. Professor Schmoller, a leading authority on economies in the em pire, estimates that of the 49,500, 000 people who make up the German empire 2.500.0X) to 4,000,0)0 are in receipt of incomes from invested capital, says of those about one-half hold public securities. In Prussia, In the last ten years, the deposits in the savings banks are claimed to have augmented about $44,030,000 per annum, and throughout Ger many probably $71. 400.000 to $95, 200,000, from which it is inferred that the German nation is laying up from $476,000,00 to $595,"00 J,0u0 annually, one-half of which goes into securities. In the last ten years there have been, in the aggregate, about $952,000,000 to $1,190,000,000 worth of foreign and $1,904,000,000 worth of domestic securities put upon the German market. With reference to the question whether Germany is wise in taking so much foreign paper. Professor Schmoller remarks that it is a healthy symptom, and indicates a thriving state of the people. and that, although much money has been lost thereby, it has been, on the whole, a valuable experience and the means of placing the German stock ex changes on equal footing with those of London, Paris and New York, a position which they did Dot occupy twenty-five years ago. The losses of the country from investments in foreign securities have been great but they are argued to have been amply offset by the profits realized. From 1860 to 1892 the Germans are reck oned to have made $233,000,0 )0 in American and Russian securities alone, independent of all indirect benefits which may have accrued to the general business of the country through the connections made in the handling of such stocks and bonds. Germany now holds probably if 2, 300. 000,000 worth of foreign securities, which is presumably double what it possessed ten years ago. The inter est and dividends on these add about $119,00X000 of wealth annually to the country. This ha3 a marked effect on the well-being of the coun try and its trade balance. What the country has lost in recent years through unfortunate investments in foreign securities has probably been about $2 JO, 0 JO. O00, which, as re marked above, has been fully com pensated for by gains made. FACES. How They Become Shapened According to One's Culling;. It appears probable that the tailor's distinctive type of face may have been partially created by his habit of working- his jaws concomitantly with his shears. Let any one watch a person cutting a piece of tough material with scissors and he will see that the lower part of the face wa?s in rhythmic and spontaneous unison with the blttdes. Shepherds and farm laborers who join sheep shearing gangs certainly acquire a different expression while engaged in this kind of work. The cast of countenance by which ope so easily recognizes a groom is partially explicable from the fact that the muscles which close the jaw and compress the lips are always called into play when wo are assert ing our will over tha' of a horse Nearly all jockeys and other horsey men have a peculiar set of the mouth and chin, but I have been unable to distinguish any special characteristic about the eye or other part of tha face. It is instructive to compare the visage of the ruler of horses with that of the ruler ot men. Tha horseman's face shows command in the mouth, the drill sergeant's in the mouth and the eye. The last is undoubtedly the most effective in strument in exacting obedience from our own species. Here we get a hint of the cause of that want of dignity, that element of coarseness which is discernible in the counten ances of some men and women who have much to do with horses- Tha higher and nobler method of ex pressing authority is outweighed by the lower and more animal one. Fcsrs nl Poultry. According to the census the L'nited States produced 457,00 1,000 dozen of eggs In 1879 and 817.000. 0 JO dozen in 189. These figures are probably under the mark. At the figures giv en, however, the annual egg product of the United States amounts to $100,000,000. If to this we add the value of the poultry so!d we 6hall obtain a pretty high figure for tha annual output of the department One authority has placed it at $390. 000,000. Iu 1893 the entire wheat crop of the United States amounted to 396,000,000. bushels, worth leas than fS0O.0O0.O0Qs THS OZONE PROCESS. Fresh Beef, Sweet and Sound. A f ter Lonf Kxpoenre In the San. How did you like the roast beef?" "Splendid; best I have had for a long while. " Have some more?" "You bet. Give me some too. " gravy. It was at a dinner party of news- paper men, and the piece de resist- ance was a big roast of beef. tender and juicv, and cooked just right. Lvervbody enjoyed it, but there wai a hush on the company when tha host said: "Gentlemen do you know that this roast of beef has been ly ing exposed to the sun for twenty one days in a window?" "On Ice. though," exclaimed one of the gourmands with his fork ex tended midway between his mouth and his plate. "No, sir," said the host. "No ice, or it would have been spoiled." There were some wry faces until it was explained that the meat had been preserved by what is known as the ozone process, which consists of processing foods by permeating them into their innermost fibres with ozone gas, thus purifying and pre serving simultaneously. It Is otrange to oe sure, but meat so processed is not affected by the atmosphere. The explanation is that ozone is the purifying element of the atmosphere, and is that portion of it that gives life and health to Qur systems and this treatment prevents decompo sition, which is simply the con sumption of animal and vegetable matter by septic gerras.accompaaied by chemical action. The process has been used by a number of hotels Kast and South and by some trans portation companies. It is a new thing in the Northwest, however, says the Minneapolis Times, and it is not to be wondered at that tha gen tlemen at the dinner party were dis mayed when told that they had been eating meat that had been exposed to the sun for three weeks. It was undoubtedly true, however, as the written testimony of the butcher to this effect was produced when soma question was raised as to the truth of the assertion of the host. A Good Wing Shot. A schoolmistress in Australia sued three young men for breach of prom- lse. Counsel tor or for a nonsuit on th was too much eng seemed disposed tion, whereupon the "Judge, did you them moved ound that she 1. The court grant the mo plaintifl asked: ever go duck shooting?" The udge. with the pride of a sportsman Well, I should say so! Many's the time I brought down half a dozen at a shot. I knew it!" eagerly exclaimed the fair plaintiff. "That's just the case with me, judge. A flock of these fellows besieged me, and I winged three of them." The motion for a nonsuit was re fused. Slros of Shore Needed. In buying shoes, by the way, it is well to remember that the feet are one-third of an inch lonfer when tha body is standing than when seated, and the elongation is further in creased when walking, for the weight is then thrown entirely on one foot at each alternate step; so that in choosing one's boots it is absolutely necessary that an allowance should be made for this.
