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.
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
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.

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

one days in a window?"
"On Ice. though," exclaimed one
of the gourmands with his fork ex

and his plate.
"No, sir," said the host. "No ice,

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

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

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. The shortness
may not be felt at once, but after a
few weeks it becomes very manifest;
and, moreover by forcing the great
toe back it is apt to create a bunion
