The good it did to France ia inestimable. Prior to the war there was an enormonc amount of money locked np in the form of small savings. The appeal of the gov ernment to the people set this sunt into profitable motion, jipd, to the amaae ment of the world, Trance paid off her creditor in less than half the stipulated time. This gave a vast impulse to busi ness enterprise of all kinds, and since then France has steadily become more wealthy. In Germany the effects were less beneficial. The huge influx of gold sent np prices with a rash. A mania for speculation set in, followed by the inevitable crisis. Most serious of all. however, was the unexpected discovery of France's strength. Bismarck intend ed to cripple her forever, but he only revealed her immense power, and this, of course, necessitated tie gigantic mili tary burdens which year by year weigh more heavily upon Germany.

Do You Dreamt The fullest examination into the na ture and origin of dreams has been made by M. Moreau, the French scien tist He divides dreams into .the dreams of health and tbe dreams that are the result of a diseased state of mind or body. With regard to the latter it need only be remarked that persistent dreaming is one of the most invariable symptoms of Insanity, and aa it is a psychological fact that genius is near allied to mad ness men of genius must be expected to dream more than ordinary men. With regard to tbe dreams of health, they are the result of an imperfect state of consciousness or an imperfect state jof sleep, according as we look at it It IS ouvious uiufe mti luiuu ui .ua treioi man, that is constantly occupied with many schemes and thoughts, is mora liable to be awake when his body ia asleep than that of the dullard, whose mind ia often asleep when his body ia awake.
