The population of the German empire increased from 45,222.113 in 1882 to 51,770 824 in 1895, a gain of 14.48 per cent. But the gain in the larger cities was in percentages rising above 30 per cent for the same time. The agricultural sections accordingly lost in population, and recent computations on the later cetisus results reveal the fact that the country districts of the empire actually lost some 750,000 in population during the 13 years. Manufacturing, trade. transportation and the professions, cen tered in the towns, absorbed the whole increase in population and more besides.

Doubleday will withdraw from the Doubleday-McClure publishing nrm ubout the hrst of the ytar and em bark in a new enterprise with several other well known publishers. The separ ation was mutually agreed upon some time ago, and the relations between S. S, McClure, senior member of the Double day-McClure firm and Doubleday are pleasant.
