The People and Proclamations Statistics Issued bV thflTrpacr,, uepanment at wasnington. WASHINGTON, April 2. The neo- pie, productions and commercial and strategic importance of the Samoan Islands are discussed in a publication just issued by the Treasury Bureau of Statistics. The Islands lie in an almost direct line, between San Francisco and Australia and slightly south of the rect steamship line connecting the Philippines with the proposed Panama or Nicaraguan interoceanic canal. Their special importance, it is stated, lies more in their position as coaling and repair stations on these great high ways of commerce than in their direct commercial value, their population be ing small and their imports and .ex ports of comparatively little import ance. The group consists of ten inhabited and two uninhabited islands, with an area of 1700 square miles and an aggre gate population, according to the latest t ot n t c o AAA 1 c I- : t c.uici, ui v,wu nuiMf, ui yiiat's th' matter?

The bulk of the population is lo- eXcept papa, of course, an' I told him cated in the three islands of Upolou, 'j'd 'be sure to come to hear him preach Savaii and Tutuila, the number in Upo- lou being 16.C00; in Savaii, 12,500, and in Tutuila, which contains the harbor of Pago-Pago, ceded to the United States in 1873 for a naval and coaling station, 3700. The Islands are of volcanic origin, but fertile, producing cocoanuts, cotton, sugar and coffee, the most important, however, being cocoanuts, from which the "copra" of commerce is obtained by drying the kernel of the cocoanut. The exportation of copra from the Islands in 1890 amounted to 12,565,909 pounds, valued at $231,372. A considerable pro portion of this was exported to the United States and a larger proportion to Germany, whose citizens control its commerce through a trading company which has long been established there. In 1S9G the imports were $304,159, of which $47,552 came from the . United States; $49,802 from Germany; $178,S57 from the Australasian colonies; $7044 from Great Britain and $21,904 from other countries. The exports in 1S90 were $203,047, of which $231,372 ;was copra. KIPLING'S GRATITUDE. NEW YORK, April 3 The following letter of thanks has been written by Rudyard Kipling to one of the papers: "HOTEL GRENOBLE, Easter Day, 1S99 Dear Sir: Will you allow . me through your columns to attempt some acknowledgment of the wonderful sym pathy, affection and kindness shown to ward me during my recent illness, as well as the unfailing courtesy that con trolled its expression. I amnot strong enough to answer letters in detail, so I must take this means of thanking as humbly as sincerely the countless people of good will throughout the world who have put me under a debt I can never hope to repay. Faithfully yours. RUDYARD KIPLING," Air. Kipling got out of bed yesterday for the first time since his illness. He is well on the way toward complete re covery. CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. WASHINGTON, April 3. President McKinley has signed an order giving official sanction to experiments for the cure of consumption. The order trans fers Fort Stanton, N. M., from the con trol of the War Department to the Ma rine Hospital Corps, under the imme diate direction of Surgeon General Wy man. It is purposed there to conduct a series of experiments to learn if pul monary tuberculosis may be cured or even if the progress of the disease may be stayed under proper surroundings and with, the aid of scientific therapeu tics. THE BIGGEST STEAMER YET. (London Correspondence of The Bir mingham Post.) I am able to state that before the Oceanic was launched at Belfast a com peting company had given orders for the construction of a steamer which will exceed even the enormous propor tions of the new White Star liner. All the details of the design are being got out, and there is little doubt that in the course of the next few months the contract will be let. The experience of recent years has proved that steamers of the largest class are, in certain trades, very profitable; but it is evi dent that the demand for such monster vessels will have to be accomplished by a proportionate increase in the grav ing dock accommodation. At present, I am told, there are only two drydocks in the country which will be able to admit the Oceanic namely, those at Southampton and Tilbury. PREACHER WON A SMALL BOY. iJ m is muuij anu ins uentie way oi ltuooing Away rain. A small Cleveland boy has a dread ful stock of .slang at his tongue's end, to the great grief and humiliation of ni mother. A great deal of this slang ne l?arn3 in tne street, and some of it ne sets from a wicked uncle, I Tne 0her day while out with his sIetl he ha1 a bati tumbIe oa the ice' amI bruised his side quite sererely. di-'He i?n t to hls a bo' to be Pitted b-v mamma and he came hustling into the house to set her help and comfort, I ,He bounced int the parlor and there sat a kindly faced gentleman with big, dark eyes and a curling 'beard. 'I knew who it was right away, mamma, and 1 said xo him: 'Ain't you th' new gospel scout to our church? An' ihe kind o' smiled an said: 'You've guessed it, my boy. I'm the new sermon shark at the brimstone shack around the corner.' Say, mam ma, he beats Uncle George cl?an out o' sight. Uncle George don't know no slang as good as that. Then he saw me holdin' my side an' lie says: next Sunday." Cleveland Plain Dealer. JAPANESE MATCHES. (From the Kobe Chronicle.) Of matches, as well as of most other manufactures in Japan, complaint has been heard time and again from the markets to which they have been ex ported. We now gather from a ver nacular contemporary that Japan is fast losing the trade; Japanese matches are being ousted by matches of Swed ish manufacture, which are bounty-fed, but are still three yen per ton dearer than Japanese matches. The reason why Japan is fast losing the market in India and China is because Swedish matches are of better quality, not a single bad stick being found in a box, while there is an average of three bad ones in each smalL box cf Japanese matches with regard to which we may say that if the average is above three the matches exported are infinitely superior to those retailed in Japan. However, the market is described as extremely dull, and several firms are cot touching the business. Conse quently there is some talk among mem bers of the local guild of suspending the manufacture of matches at the end of the year for a period of about six weeks. WHALE CURE FOR RHEUMATISM. It is said that in Australia there is a hotel where rheumatism patients con gregate. Whenever a whale has been taken the patients are rowed over to the works where the animal is cut up. the whalers dig a narrow grave in the body, and in this the patient li.es for two hours, as in a Turkish bath, the decomposing blubber of the whale closing around his body and acting as a huge poultice. This is known as the whale cure for rheumatism. THE BEST IN THE WORLD. We believe Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is the best in the world. A few weeks ago we suffered with a se vere cold and a troublesome cough, and having read their advertisements in our own and.other papers we. purchas ed a bottle to see if it would effect us. It cured us before the bottle was more than half used. It is the best medicine out for colds and coughs. Tha Herald, Andersonville, Ind.
