Drinking in Berlin and Paris
Tho population of Berlin verges on
2,000,000; that of Paris is about 2,
750,000. Native Frenchmen drink
very little wine. One small glass of
claret suffices for a meal. Natlvo Ger
mans will hover over a stein of beer
a whole evening, whereas an English
man or American will guzzle twenty
steins. Pnrls' transient population Is
enormous, and they think it a duty to
drink wine when in the City of Light.

Under tho caption, "Tho Union Pa
cific Railroad and Louisiana Terri
tory," tho now World's Fair folder Is
sued by the advertising department of
the Union Pacific, which has attracted
such general attention, recites these
interesting facts:
"While tho construction of the
Union Pacific Railroad, Its trials and
triumphs, aro a part of the history of
tho United States, the important part
played by this railroad in the develop
ment of tho Louisiana Purchase can
hardly bo estimated. In the building
up of this vnst domain it has been one
of the chief factors.
One hundred years ago tho popula
tion of tho region was estimated at
20,000. Up-to the inception of the
Union Pacific (In 18C0) it had in
creased to 3,233,529. In 1900 it num
bered over 13,000,000 of inhabitants.
In this wonderful growth, with its. stu
pendous increase In all the many-sided
phases of commercial, material and
Intellectual prosperity, tho Union Pa
cific as a glance at tho map will
show has had a conspicuous share.
It has opened vast regions of fertllv.
country to settlers, and brought grent
areas of an unknown and unproduc
tive wilderness Into closo communion
with metropolitan centers and mar
kets. Thriving cities, towns and ham
lets, through Its efforts, have sprung
up In every direction.
It may bo of interest to know that
tho total number of manufacturing
plants, and tho valuo of their outputs,
combined with that of the national
products as repotted in the census of
1900, give an aggregate production for
tho Louisiana region of $3,500,000,000
annually, or 223 times tho original pur
chase price. Tho same census reports
(1900) also show the total population
to bo 13,343,255, of which 8,303.096 In
habitants are living in the states and
territories reached by the Union Pa
cific. On the 1900 census figures, it is
estimated that tho true wealth of the
Louisiana purchase can bo stated at
about $13,051,868,359, of which $9,360,
621,387 is represented in tho states
reached by this great railroad."
