LONDON CENSOS LEAVES QUESTION OF LARGEST CITY STILL UNSETTLED "Greater" Metropolis Figures Include Rural Sections and Exceed New York, but Americans Consider District Is Not Rep resentative ? Figures T ell an Interesting Story of Course of English History. Hils year's British census, the re sults of which have just been an nounced, throws a lot of light upon a ^greut many problems; but it doesn't settle the question which is most in teresting to Americans: whether New York or London is the world's largest t'*y The administrative county of Lon don, which in 11)11 had 4 .">2 1 inhab itants, has lost I5S.43t5 of its popula tion. so that it now numbers only 4.483.241) persons. But the popula tion of ihe "outer ring," a district of [suburbs and semi-rural areas under [the control of the London metropolitan ollce. but otherwise belonging to the [counties of Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Kent, 'lias increased from 2,729,073 to 2,992, 19. When tills is counted, greater |London has a population of 7,47G,10.'l, as compared with 7,251 ,.'5f>8. London itself, therefore, isn't so big as New York, but greater London re tnins a lead of nearly 2,000,000 souls over the American metropolis. The net result is that the English man will continue to claim that ..ondon Is the greater, and that the ^American will retort that if one Is ko ng to include agricultural districts, Ksuch as Jersey City and llackensack. ?New York would show lO.OtMj.OOO or to say nothing of Yonkers. Effcct of War on Census. Two factors in particular operated p> make the announcement of t lie H'L'l ] ?ensus result one of especial interest, j PThey were: I What tigure would the war cut? What, would be the total "surplus j women?" For four year.-^nd three months of the period covered by the census Kng- | llsli people were being killed off l>y ! an agency which every one was cer tain woubj figure in the next census i 1o a far greater extent than in any one ?Jin the past. True, to counterbalance this there was a check to emigration during the war years; but there was also a declining birthrate during that same time. | * Nevertheless, during the decade * from 1911 io 1921 the population of (ireat Britain increased nearly 2, 000. The number of "surplus women" L Increased from 1,179,270 In 1911 to | 1.720,802 in 1921. The Increase Is al most exactly accounted for by the es tablished lotal of f.00.000 deaths of JCagllslitneu and Welshmen In the "war. The figures for Great Britain do not Include Ireland, where no census was taken this year, but they comprise Scotland and Wales. The Scotch re sults were announced some weeks ago. } The following table shows the Increase ? from 191 1 to 19'_'I : 1911. MCI.

The rate of percentage Increase was 4.7 per cent. the lowest ever recorded. In the previous decade the rate was 1U.4. While no Irish census was taken, it is known that the population of "John Bull's other island" is a diminishing one. During the war emigration was largely checked from it. In 1911 it had 4.390,219 people, and a fairly safe assumption is that it now contains about 4,200,000. The total population of the islands, then, Is approximately 47,000,000. In brief the census shows: Largest population In country's his tory. Smallest rate of increase ever re- j corded. Surplus of nearly 2,000,000 women. Drift from country to towns, but falling off in London and industrial midlands. Huge increases in seaside resorts. ! Smallest number of births since ! 1011.

From the detailed figures of the pro- j visional returns one can almost fol low the course of Fuglish history dur ing the last ten years. During the I lirst three years the birth rate was ! high and the death rate low. but emi i gration was also high, probably at the I rate of 1 ."0.000 yearly, since it is es i timated that emigrants for the ten I I year- numbered 15(50.000. I Then during the next year the war cut across the statistician's charts and j graphs. "From 191 1 to 1914 the balance of 1 birth over deaths was comparable with j the figures of previous years." notes j the report, "but thereafter the conti guity ceases and the changes become j so great as to render any forecast of ; such movements based upon results of '? | previous years entirely random." Cardinal's Hat Symbol of Office. The peculiarity of the cardinal's hat i Is that it is not to be worn. On one ' occasion only is it to he seen on the head of the cardinal. and that Is when the pope himself places it there as h 1 symbol of Its owner's elevation to the Sacred college. )Vlien the cardinal dies It is placed In his coffin.

A Gift From the Sea By MALCOLM BROWiN. ' '-IK. IS. I. \\? ?tviu Nev. Utuuu. "I don't hHieve that we are over going t.i married. Frank." said Mllisit1 Ia'sUT, looking sadlj at her tin nee. There w ere tears iii her big gray c.ves, ami l-'rank Uhodes felt it Midden sting of shame as li?* per ceived them. II** was twenty-eight :i t ?< ! Maisie twenty-live, and they hud been en gaged four years. They ought to have; heen married long before, hut Frank wus what his folks ealled a "ne'er-do weil." iiv' had never plaeed his foot upon the lirst rung of the ladder of] success. He had l?een a elerk in half a dozen otflces, hut he wholly lacked the elements that make for linatieial Htlluence. Maisie was a stenographer, and be tween them they made exactly forty, dollars a week. Frank would have married her on that, hut Maisie hud enough worldly wisdom to refuse. "No, my dear," she htid said, "un- j less you enn do something that will I enable us to get our little farm we must remain unmarried. Then Frank bad bad a wonderful idea. He would go west. And on t lie I following day he was to start for St. l.ouis, which was us far as his money j would carry him. They bad met on the beach. It was to be their last meeting for years ? perhays forever. "I shall always be true to you, Frank," Maisie whispered again, anfi citing to him; and they kissed each other ;is passionately as lovers do who are to be sundered for an incaleulablfe age. They sat down side by side and Maisie traced his initials in the sand with the point of her umbrella. F ? K ? A ? N she had written, and theu the ferrule encountered a soft and yielding substance that obliterated the fourth letter as her umbrella point dragged It forth from its hiding place. She looked curiously upon the shape less substance. It was waxy, some thing like beeswax. She Ilung It into , the air and turned to her sweetheart. "Frank, dear, if you are to get that train home we had better be starting," : she said. He agreed, and they clung together In one last embrace, to be the last for goodness knew how long. Then they turned tholr steps sadly toward the station. Frank turned and gripped Malsie's arm fiercely. "Dear, I'm going to make good." he [ said. "If I can earn two thousand dol j lars we will have our farm." I Poor Frank! Maisie looked at him wistfully. Neither of them had ever owned fifty dollars at a time. And Frank was close on thirty. They were walking among the strag gling visitors to the little place. A nurse-girl wheeled two fat infants in a baby carriage. A ridiculous-looking little man with waxed mustaches was approaching them. Matfcie opened her umbrella and held It over Frank ? the action was instinctive and demon strated her unconscious maternal at titude toward him. He linked his arm through hers, but he did not take the umbrella : be was far away, com posing. Even Maisie was forgotten for a moment. Maisie heard an exclamation behind her and Ihe fat little man came pant . lug toward her. She heard him blow ing and panting. "Mees! Mees!" he was calling. He wus evidently a Frenchman. Maisi- turned round. The little man was standing before her. and in Ids' hand lie held ? that absurd mass of sea | growth which she had flung away upon the beach. She nm<t have let it fall Into her umbrella, and, when she opened it. it had slipped out upon the boardwalk. Maisie felt furious. "Yes. I dropped that." she said ieily. "Rut It is of no value to me. Keep it, monsieur, if it interests you." The fat little man looked quizzical ly at her. "Mademoiselle is, without doubt, a millionaire?" he inquired blandly. Something In his tone arrested Maisie' s angry answer. There was a strange lool: in the little man's eyes. "What is it ?" she asked. "Ambergris," said the fat little man. "The basis of perfumes. The mos' valuable of the sea's gifts. I am a perfumer, mademoiselle. I buy hcem.*' "How much?" a?ked Maisie. "I giv" you ? free t'ousan' dollars." said the tut little man. That was the only time Maisie evei scolded Frank for whistling. The Castle of Lcwej?. The noble castle of I^ewes.
