THE RICHMOND FALLAU1UM AlfU SDTI'TK LCGK A 3i, TUESDAY, AUCiUST 11, 190S. COUNTY RECEIPTS HAVE INCREASED increase Is Greater Propor tionately to Increased Expenditures. BUSINESS IS COMPLEX. IT IS FOR THIS REASON EX PENSES ARE LARGER LESS MONEY EXPENDED ON BOARD ING OF COUNTY PRISONERS. Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 11 An anal ysis of reports on county finances made to the state bureau of statistics of which Mrs. Mary Stubbs Moore is chief, shows that both the total re ceipts and the total expenditures in the counties of the state have increas ed considerably within the past four years. The increase in receipts has been greater proportionately, however, that that in expenditures. The growing complexity of county business has increased the expendit ures from $8,933,733.01 in 1904 to 9, 719,797.08 in 1907, increase amount ing to $786,043.57. However to meet ; the increased expenditures county rev enues were Increased during the four years irom fiuwii.ta u a.w - il775.02.3a in 1907. the Increase amounting to $1,423,024.93. In other words while the spending ability of the counties increased 8.8 per cent in the four years the paying capacity Increased 13.8 per cent, or 5 per cent, more, making the general financial ehowing of the counties much better than it was four years ago. That this is true again is attested by a comparison of the returns on the sale of county bonds. In 1904 $1,130, 821.S5 or 11 per cent of the total re ceipts were derived from, the sale of county bonds. In 1907 only $57G,06. 64, or less than 5 per cent, of the total receipts came from this source. The county receipts, are greater in spite ' of the fact that the loans are less. The ' counties in the administration of their business have more working capital and are compelled to borrow less year by year. There has been a noticeable decrease in the amount expended by the coun ties in boarding prisoners in the coun ty Jails. The cost of boarding prison ers amounted to $301,5745.99 in 1904; in 1905. $206,797.89, and in 1908, $203, 706.65. In 1907 the cost was reduced to $201,844.11. This reduction came about through small decreases in a majority of the counties. Servant Problem Solved? Not exactly.

Marriage among the Topi, a tribe of the Pueblo Indians, is an institution regarding which those most concerned have least to say. When the parents of a girl find It expedient for her to get married, they look up an available man and negotiate with his parents. After the matter has been arranged the principals are notified. The girl gos to the home of the groom's parents and grlnd3 corn for them for three weeks, while the groom makes a kind of sash for the bride. Then one morn ing at sunrise they both bathe their heads la cold water, which completes the ceremony. There have been in stances of the groom's refusing to go through the performance, which has then proceeded without him and been accounted valid, and several weeks later be has yielded and had his head bathed. The Navajo ceremony is much more elaborate and Impressive, but then the Navajo girls are much nicer. The reg ular tariff on a Navajo girl entering the port of matrimony for the first time is twelve horses. On the second occasion the tax is nine horses, while subsequent entries are free. This is not purchase money, but Is merely a tribute of respect to a mother-in-law and a token of apprecia tion of the care and expense involved in bearing and rearing the lady, a recognition not unworthy of consldera tion by civilized grooms. On the other hand, and deserving of great condem nation, is that law of many tribes, un written, but of, much sanctity, that a man and his mother-in-law shall never meet after the" ceremony. A. W. Dim ock in Outing Magazine. Coral Islands. A coral island is sometimes torn to pieces by a great storm, showing that islands disappear in more ways than one. This happened to an atoll in the Marshall group in 1905, when It hap pened to be in the path of a terrible hurricane. Waves about forty feet high swept over the hapless speck of land, carrying every particle of ver dure and every form of life Into the sea, and not a human being was saved. The upper part of the coral was bro ken off and swept away, and a few days later nothing but the placid wa ters of the ocean was seen, where the atoll had stood. Music as Advertised.

Sarcey's Fearfully Bad Luck With Custodians of His Books. Francisque Sarcey had a splendid li brary, of which he was very proud, and there are many stories told Id Paris about the singular fates, comic and tragic, that overtook the librarians who successively looked after the late critic's books. The first was a released convict, who pleaded that to be much among good books would reform him. Sarcey, pug nacious in print, was the kindliest ol men In practice. He yielded to the plea. Unfortunately his protege car ried the ethical cure too far, for on day he decamped, taking with him the best of M. Sarcey's good books. The second was a distinctly minoi dramatist, Debrit by name and debris by nature. He had worn himself int an incurable melancholy by persistent addiction to the humorist vaudeville habit. Sarcey saw that abstinence from further composition could only be secured if the man had some light oc cupation with a living wage. He es tablished him in the vacancy left by the convict A few days later as the critic, returning from the theater, drew his carriage up before his door he heard a smash of shivered glass above him, followed a minute later by what he no longer dared to call a dull thud on the pavement below. The woe be gone librarian, wearied of life, had thrown himself out of the window, With his last breath he cursed Sarcey as his murderer. Third in order was one Bernard, a gladsome youth, whose blithe tempera ment promised relief from the gloom cast, by his predecessor. In the height of his glee he pulled out all the books so as to rearrange them in more log leal order on the shelves. He stacked them in craggy pyramids all over the floor. But it happened to be the spe cial day of the week whereon Sarcey was wont to have a few of his the atrical friends, male and female, tc lunch with him. After lunch a dance followed as a matter of course. Noth ing could dismay the librarian. He whisked the pyramids to four walls and Joined In the dance. Next day h: asked permission to go home and see his mother. He never returned. The pyramids had to be' sorted out by Sar cey's manservant and put pellmell oo the shelves again. The last librarian was Mile. Blouska, an elderly Polish maiden, who proved an Invaluable assistant until she per ished miserably In the fire at the char ity ball in Pari.

The distribution of manufactures in any country would be a most curious and Interesting subject of study. The first thing to stand out conspicuously in the investigation would be the grad ual tendency toward concentration in the larger cities and the gradual reces sion of manufactures outside them. Certain sections of the country are full of decaying communities, once active, but from which the chief industries have been withdrawn. If investigation disclosed the fact that certain centers of manufacture had become such through the possession of pre-eminent natural advantages, such a condition would be easily explained; but, in fact, natural advantages have comparative ly little to do-with the matter. A country consisting mainly of large cities with merely incidental rural pop ulation has taken a long step toward final disintegration. Moreover, even if actual disintegration is not imminent, there exists the curious and anoma lous condition of a community in which the transportation and distribution of commodities are the predominant ele ments, in which producer and consumer stand at the ends of a long chain of intermediaries. It is bad enough in this respect even at present, but every step toward further concentration of industry and population makes it worse. No country In which the pro ductive forces are steadily being sub ordinated to an intricate (and, upon the whole, wasteful) mechanism of distri bution can long remain prosperous.

When left alone to its natural func tions nitrogen pursues a perfectly peaceful course, but when man suc ceeds In capturing it and combining it with other elements It becomes a dire potentiality for evil. The love of free dom, so to speak, characteristic of ni trogen is terribly exemplified In the ex plosion of the bomb in which it is im prisoned and bound to other elements. On the slightest provocation a spark, a shock, a fuse the nitrogen suddenly expands from seemingly nothing as re gards the space which It occupies Into infinity. This is in reality what hap pens when dynamite, lyddite or other unstable nitro compounds explode when hurled In shells in warfare and in bombs in desperate attacks on human lives. Nitrogen, against its natural dis position. Is locked up In an uncongenial space in these compounds, from which It is set free by very simple means In an enormously expanded gaseous state with deadly effect, returning, in fact, to Its normal peaceful mission once more. It is the analogue of the sword and the plowshare; in the nltro explo sive nitrogen Is the modern engine of warfare and crime; In the free state in the atmosphere It ministers directly to the quiet and peacefnl needs of plant and human life.
