THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 2, 1896.
Few Children In France. Of all the peoples of Europe the French have the fewest children ani the Irish the most. The average French family numbers 3.03 persons and the average Irish family 5.2. In England the average is 4.8 and in Germany it is 4.1. The Spanish and Russians closely approach the Irish in prolificness. Con trasted with the French in Europe, the French in Canada are the most prolific race in Christendom. ; Nature Plaints of Negroes. ' A writer in Trogress Artistique, in dismissing' the music of south Africa', says the races living there possess to an astonishing degree the faculty of assimilation and imitation. They re produce with surprising fidelity the songs of birds, cries of animals and the rarious sounds of nature. Child-people, they receive in their otherwise obtuse brains impressions of freshness and vivid intensity. Their long solitary wandering upon hills and prairies.unit ed with fleeting association with for eigners, results in a species of melodic nature plaints, as one might imagine, a developed monkey music. ' A GREAT SNAKE COLONY. An Australian Enthusiast Has a Fine Col lection off Venomous Reptiles. Mr. J. McGarrie Smith, an eminent bacteriologist of Sydney, Australia, is the proprietor of probabl3r the greatest collection of snakes in the world, says the ' New York World. lie is in the business partly for - scientific purposes and partly for business. He advertised some time ago for 500 venom ous reptiles, but one publisher refused to permit the advertisement until he had satisfied himself of the sanity of the scientist. The different species of venomous snakes in Australia, so far as known, number 42, and Mr. Smith has speci mens of all of them. The poison ex tracted from the reptiles is largely used in the Pasteur institute in Peris. Mr. Smith is an enthusiast on the subject of snakes, and regards them as the most wonderful of living creatures. He has in his collection serpents that have gone nearly a year without food and are still fat. He has injected some of their own poison into them without the slightest ill-effects to them. As a result of his investigations hehas estab lished the fact that a non-poisonous snake is not affected in any way by the poison of the venomous species. "VVHy," said Smith, "it dojs not kill one of its own species while i issc fatei to other creatines is one of the myste ries of the Almighty w hich wc cannot unravel." Suez Canal Profits. The Suez canal reprr-ts at present n clear profit income of over 1,600,000 a year, and this, too, means a saving to the commerce between east and west of over 2,000,000 a year. Its political and military value is somewhat problemat ical, since the sinking of a single ship or dredger would render it impassible. Aahantee Surnames. There are seven surnames in Ashan tee( corresponding to the days of the week, as follows: Kwasle indicates a man born on Sunday, Kudjoe on Mon day, Kwabina on Tuesday, Kwaku on Wednesday, Yao on Thursday, Koffi on Friday, and Kwamina on Saturday.
