The result of the recent census shows that during the last five years tho popula tion has increased somewhat less rapidly than it did in the previous ten 1881-91. The number of people turned out to be some 15,000 below the estimate formed on the basis of 189L The difference is small but Important, as it shows that the previ ous fall in the rate of increase is main tained. The Tjonulution is trrowina; at a less and less rapid pace- At the beginning I of the century it used to increase by more han 20 per cent in the ten years between successive censusea In 1881-1)1 that rate hod fallen to 10.4 per cent, the lowest on record, and now it is still less. This move ment is not part of a general decline. It ia peculiar to London and seems to indi cate that the huge overgrowth of the me tropolis has begun to cure itself. No town can go on growing indefinitely, and even London, monstrous as it is, has not ful filled the expectations of earlier statistl ciana Two hundred years ngo it appeared to be growing so fast that Sir William Petty, one of the earliest pioneers in dem ographical research, reckoned that by 1840 the population would reach 10,000, 000, supposing it to continue at the same rate. He thought, however, that a natural limit would bo reached before then and placed it in the year 1800, by which time he calculated London would contain some thing over 6,000,000 inhabitants and the rest of Ensrland only 4,500,000. He was very nearly right about the total, which actually was about 9,000,000, but London only accounted for one of them. Since then it has nearly reached its maxi mum, which, curiously enough, seems likely to prove a real natural limit. For the four years 1871-4 the average birth rate was 35. 3. For the four years 1801-4 it was only B0. 9. There has been a gradual and almost continuous fall from year to year, which has not been counterbalanced by the simultaneous but slighter fall in the death rate from 22.7 to 19.9. Fewer people die in proportion to the population, but still fewer are bora This )s explained by the increasing disinclination to marry.

The Painters of Komnnticlsm, No anchorite ever disdained the luxuries of life in better faith than the enthusiasts j of romanticism.

The ruins of an old church make of tho place a sort of sanctu ary. The houses on each side, once impos ing, are dilapidated and abandoned, in one of theso an ample lodging was found for those immoderate lovers of art to whom the consideration o personal well beincr was auite ummnortant who were more than content to breakfast on ah ode and to dine on a ballad. One empty room of immense size, going rapidly to rack and ruin, seemed especially fitted for their needs and was soon turned into a temple of the arts. Could the al ready tumble down place have possibly been preserved to the present day, what a mine of wealth, what priceless treasures It would have been found to contain, for the impromptu decorations were undertaken by hands then quite unknown, but bound to emerge into the full light of celebrity. Perched upon ladders, a rose behind the ear, cigarette in mouth, the peintres ro mantlques produced masterpieces of gen ius. On narrow panels high above his head, Corot produced two exquisite views of Italy; below him Chassereau designed a Diana bathing, where were already indi cated the almost savage grace and freedom of his later works; Camilla Bogier covered the ceiling with oriental fancies; Marilhat. Celestin Nanteuil, Adolphe Lelcux added their daring and picturesque contributions and, brush in hand, these artists, them selves aspiring poets, recited verses from Hugo and Alfred de Musset as a fitting ac companiment to pictorial inspiration.

There has recently appeared In the Lon don Times a series of exhaustive articles in opposition to the adoption by England of the metrie system. "It will rather sur prise many people," says The Pall Mall Gazette, "to learn that the, author of these articles is Mr. Herbert Spencer. The angels have always been regarded as on the side of the innovation, rather than against it Mr. Spencer sums up his objec tions under four heads, which may be im pressive enough on the ground of principle, but will hardly shake the faith of those who know from consular reports and bit ter experience how much British industries are hampered in dealing with the meter using nations. He says, briefly speaking: "(1) That mankind began with the dec imal system and abandoned it in the course of civilization for easy aliquot divi sions, especially the duodecimal; (2) that the French took a century and a half to find out the boasted conveniences of the metric system, and then only recognized them under penal compulsion; (3) that in America, where a decimal coinage pre vails, it is rejected in favor of an easy aliquot divisional system on the stock ex change, where money transactions are chiefly managed; (4) that not only the practical men of the west today, hut the wise men of the east many hundreds of years ago, have agreed upon the impor tance of great divisibility. Tho Chaldeans based their calculations on the number 60, which has ten divisions, and we today are proposing to go back to a form of measure ment characterized by relative Indivisibil ity."
