Tiio official figures show that out ot a native born population ot 05,843,302 there arc 13, 803,031 living In States different from those In which they were born. That is, more than cno person out of IHo has left the State of Ins-blrth to Beek his fortune elsewhere. If we count the 10.4C0.736 foreign born residents we find that about one third of the population has moved from the State or country of birth These figures show our mobility to bo In the ratio of ten to one as compared with that of Europe. The State of New York has sent out 1,300,000 of hef children, who are now residing In other btates, and has re ceived from other States In theft stead 534,000 residents. Vermont has a most remarkable record, which shows that she has children living in other States equal In number to one-halt of her present population.

Many American lnventorsTwIth mon ey to back them, arc laying plans to dispute the" Brazilian's title to being the only "wizard of tjio air." Probably the most formidable con testant Santos-Tjumont will have Is Alanson Wood of Toledo, Ohio, who, with his partner, made a fortuno In twelve months from his Invention tho rol'er coaster.

All the big now resort hotels havo largo corridors ami lobbies where men nnd women assemble, giving a sort of drawing-room atmosphcro to them. The only trouble with tho plan, so far as the bachelor guest is concerned, Is thnt they have so little accommoda tion for men exclusively. There Is little, If nny, spaco set npart for what might bo called tho club llfo of n big hotel having In mind tho English Bishop's definition of a club ns a place whero women cease from troubling and the wicked are at rest. Men, for onp thing, leel themselves under constraint in tho matter of smoking. The clerk ot ono of these hotels had a good dealto say when this situation was brought to his attention tho other day.
