WILL COUNT THE NOSH3.
Of All the People of the World in 1SK>0. A great undei'tnking has been plan noil to mark the closing of the niti" teenth century, heilig no more nor less iliau a count ot' ail the people in the world at the same time, in order that the present century may turn over to its successor an account of stock, as it were. The magnitude of the task may lie seen from the fact that six years have already elapsed s!n'.-e the taking of the last census of the United States and the last reports have not yet been published. A't this rate, how long will it take to give to the v,-orld the results of a census of the whole world? The scheme got its real inception at the biennial meeting of the Interna tional Statistical Institute, recently held at Berne, Switzerland. At the in stance of Dr. Guillaume, director of the statistical office of the Federal Govern ment, a committee of distinguished sta tisticians, scientists, travelers and geog raphers was appointed to begin ilie work by collecting all tlie information possible ns to the best methods of tak ing this world's census, and to report to the institute at its meeting next year. The population of the earth is now es timated at 1,700,000,000. These figures were given by Profs. Bolim and Wag ner, of the University of Gottingen, who have from year to year published their calculations in a journal called Die Bevölkerung der Erde. Their esti mates are based upon the best informa tion. Yet Behm and Wagner frankly acknowledge that they have had to fill up many of their columns with nothing better than guesses—guesses founded upon the observations of travelers, and upon other guesses mentioned in treat ies given by such countries as China, Persia, Arabia, Turkey. In the most populous country of the world, China, they state that their fig ures may be 200,000,000 more or less than the actual number of people. In Africa they may be some 50,000,000 astray, and in Asiatic Turkey, Persia, Siam and Afghanistan the figures are probably equally uncertain. China, I hey are now assured, will fake an offi cial census and the governments of Turkey, Persia, Siam and Afghanistan will also be asked to give their assist ance to the agents of the institute, with a view to making some districted enum eration of their peoples. The accom plishment of this will require a large amount of diplomacy, as well as of money, and the widest possible knowl edge of these lialf-barliarous localities. The most important feature of this world's census will be the «synchronous counting of the civilized people of the earth. The plan is to have all the States of Europe and America, and all the colonies and dependencies of civ ilized governments, and such states as Japan, make a comprehensive and uni form enumeration of their population, their industries, homes, families, re ligions and a hundred other minor fea tures, and to make a uniform table em bracing every point needed to We com piled in the different languages, and Mibinitt c' " '•'•nitnents.

If there is any reason why you should use any sarsaparilla, there is every reason why you should use Ayer's. When you take sarsaparilla you take it to cure disease ; you want to be cured as quickly as possible and as cheaply as possible. That is why you should use Ayer's : it cures quickly and cheaply—and it cures to stay. Many people write us : "I would sooner have one bottle of Ayer's Sarsaparilla than three of any other kind." A druggist writes that "one bottle of Ayer's will give more benefit than six of any other kind." If one bottle of Ayer'» will do the werk of three it must have the strength of three at the cost of one. There's the point in a nutshell. It pays every way to use Ayer's Sarsaparilla. ® \-^y (m) 111 DEATH VALLEY. Teaming: There la an Occupation of Dreadful Fatality to Horses. The deadliest occupation for men or horses is teaming in the borax fields of Death valley in the great American desert. There the longest teams in the world are employed. Scientists de clare thaï the fierce heat in this nar row rent in the cracked surface of the earth is not equaled elsewhere in the world. When the thermometer often registers 140 degrees of heat, unre lieved by even a breath of air; where men sleep at night in shallow ditches tilled with water in order to avoid dy ing from collapse, tlie necessity for the longest teams of mules and horses ever harnessed to draw the great bora.x laden wagons is apparent. The percentage of deaths among the horses used in teaming is greater than that of domestic animals used in any other calling. Forty to sixty horses are often hitched to one of the lum bering vehicles in which the borax is slowly dragged across the sun-baked alkali plains. The average life of even the sturdiest horses used in this work is six months, for in this length of time they either become broken-wind ed. consumptive from inhaling the deadly dust of the desert, or are driven crazy by the frightful lic.it. A man there, though protected by the wagon awnings from the vm's rays, cannot go an hour without water without danger of death. When a team breaks down and ihe water sup ply becomes depicted the men ride at top speed for the nearest source of supply, and often when they return they find that the remaining horses, made mad by thirst, have broken from their harness and dashed off only to find death in the desert. The borax wagons weigh S.000 pounds and carry 20,000 pounds at a load. Behind each wagon is a tank containing hundreds of gallons of wa ter. The horses are harnessed in pairs, the trained ones in the lead, and the next in intelligence just ahead of tic tongue, while the unruly and the youngsters are hitched between. The nigh leader lias a bridle witli the strap from the left jaw shorter than the other, and from this bridle runs a braided rope which (lie driver, perched on the wagon seat, holds in Iiis right hand. The ro] " Is called the "jerk line," and is a little longer than the team, which stretches out several hundred feet in front of the wagon. During the busy season the borax wagons make an almost continuous train, and the horses alone if placed in single file would make a team more than a hundred miles long. Besides a little food and water the poor animals get no care. They curry themselves by rolling in the burning sand. After a few months of this kill ing labor the poor creatures become unfit for service. A kindly rifle ball then ends their agony, and their ema ciated carcasses are left alongside the trail to furnish scant picking for the hovering vulture Depew's Gift to an Unknown Bride. "You must receive a great many queer letters," said a young lady who sat next to Chauncey M. Depew at n dinner party a few weeks,ago. "Yes," said Mr. Depew, "I do. 1 just answered one of tîie most peculiar I ever received this afternoon. A young lady who lives at a little town up in the Adirondack mountains, that I had never heard of before, wrote and asked aie to send her money for a wedding trousseau." "For n wedding trousseau!" exclaim ed the young lady. "Yes. She said I would not miss ? 100, and it would make her very happy to have that sum, and it would pay for ill she needed for her wedding outfit. After explaining that her parents wer opposed to her marrying the man she loved, simply because he was not rich, she went on to say that she was the prettiest girl in town, that she knew if I could see lier as «lie sat writing I would let her have the money for her trousseau." "And did you send it to her?" asked the young lady. "Yes," said Mr. Depew. "And why do you think I did it?" "I am sure I don't know." said the young lady; "perhaps because the re quest was such an unusual one." "Xo." said Mr. Depew. "it was bo cause the young lady stated with such frankness and evident conviction that she was the prettiest girl in town." "I don't mind riding the bicycle and wearing the costume, but I should hate to be called a wheel woman." "Don't worry, dear. Nobody will ever call you that."—Detroit Tribune. PALMISTRY.

I An expert palmist ; has consented to read some hands that are here num bered one. two and three. The princi pal characteristics have been given, to gether with the lines which represent them, of the persons who had their hands read, and comparison is made easy to those who choose to try. Hand Xo. 1 belongs to the square or useful type. The leading charac teristics are symmetry and exactitude of thought and habit. A person with little imagination or originality. One who disbelieves all she cannot under stand would have stich a hand. She dOv's not allow herself to be influenced by prejudice, but will examine every thing before coming to a conclusion, and should follow a career involving logic and reason. Siie is very orderly; lias a place for everything. She is po lite and courteous in her manners. A pron for • s< li'-c oilfield aluwl spiii Jiard and s cu; lo<v «licaU-il r.> 1 (• loss lines nU \r.

She is ■ncrg'-tic and lias a go it sh-inld not work too Id ;ak ■ plenty of exer .1 her constitution is in re.tli by ;he many deep the linger tips. She is fond of admiration, a flatterer, and susceptible to flattery herself. The up per line running across the hand is the heart line, relating to all things connected with the affections. In this case it is much crowded with little lines, denoting a strong tendency to flirtation. The second line crossing the hand is the head line, or line of men tality. The first half is straight, but the second drops down in a curve, which shows a balance between prac tical common sense and imagination, and gives in this case a talent for im aginative work, i. e., the nature is prac tical, but the head is imaginative. The line of life (the long line which runs around the ball of the thumb) is very long. This gives promise of a long life. The line shows a break at the age of 24 and means an illness at that age. The fate line, running from the wrist to the second finger is very good for success in money matters. She will have many admirers, but will only marry once, at the age of about 27. The thumb is very long and turns out ward, denoting generosity, strong will and good reasoning powers. She has great chances for success and good for tune in life. Hand Xo. 2 is the hand of a very act ive, energetic person, one who has a love for all that is useful, physical and reasonable. She c o n s i d e r s all things from the utilitarian point of view, luis a love of animals a n d inclination for travel, com- V \ nierce, and me- \^\ ( chanieal arts. She is orderly and ad ln ires tidiness, but will be more .so from her love tt. of doing something than from a love of tidiness itself. She has great busi ness capasity, is persevering and indus trious, lias fanatical love of detail (long lingers), observant of small things, easily pleased and easily put out. lier childhood has been very unhappy (ragged fate line at the bot tom). At 10 she changed her life and country. She has a very good lieari. and tries her best to make her hus band happy, but in her affection she is rather unfortunate. The line of heart is very much crossed under the first linger, and from the marriage line lit tle hairlines are found dropping from it toward the heart line, which indicate that her trouble will come through the bad health of the husband. She mar ried (.nee. at the age of about 20. The head line is very straight (notice the difference between that line anil in Hand Xo. H, denoting practical com mon-sense. cleverness and strength of will in things appertaining to oneself. She will die in a country foreign to that of her birth, live very long and never want for anything so far as money goes. Hand Xo. 3 is the hand of a very practical person, but otic whose ac tions are governed by inspiration, im pulse and intui tion. He is not particular about trifles, jumps hastily to conclu sions and is quick in grasping the entirety of a sub ject. He Ls quick In judgment and prompt in action, brief and concise In expression and in writing.

This is Indicated by the head line which s lirmly joined to the heart lin and noa :-.>parated as la Hand Xo. 1.

Two Ohl I-'riciui*. Oil one of the streets of Chicago, says the Tribune, a crowd of people stood watching the vain attempts of a poor old horse to pull a heavily loaded cart out of a rut. Again and again lie did his best: but the task was beyond him. and finally, sweating and pant ing, lie refused to try further. The owner plied the whip tili the bystand ers began to express a pretty loud dis approval. .lust then a man came no. saw what was going on. and in an other moment was in the middle of the street. "Where did you get that horse?" lie asked. At the sound of the voice t hi» horse pricked up his ears, and turning his head in the direction whence the sound came, gave utterance to a low, giad neigh. Without waiting for the owner's re ply, the man advanced quickly to Mc horse's head, and patting it gently, said ill a tone of affection: "Poor old Joe, so they've brought you to this! 1 somehow thought it was yon. old boy, when I first saw you, but 1 couldn't believe my eyes, for you used to be a mighty different looking horse from this." All this time the horse was rubbing his head against the man's breast and shoulders, and there v\as a suspicion of moisture in the man's eyes. "I never would have sulii you in the world, Joe, if 1 had thought they would bring you to this," the man continued. "But never mind, old boy, there's going to be a change right away. You're go ing to have all you want to eat; you're going to have a nice big stall, and you're never going to do another lick of work as long as you live." Then turning to the astonished own er. he asked. ' How much do you want : for this horse?" The man hesitated a moment, and' then said, "l-'orty dollars." He knew that he was asking l'o.ir times what the horse was worth, but he shrewdly concluded that the old owner would not stand on a few dol lars. And he didn't; for taking out a roll I of bills from his pocket, he counted out ■ the forty dollars, and handing it to the man, said: "Here's your money. You're robbing me, but I must have the horse." A few minutes later he was leading him down the street, and as the two made their way along there were doubt less many who wondered why that well-dressed man should evince such tender consideration for the poor, bony old horse which followed with lame, faltering steps so cluse behind him. A Oookcil lîivcr. A well-known traveling man was gracefully poised against a Xew York hotel register. "Von may not believe me." he said, "but whi n I was down in Kentucky, in October, I stood on a bit of high ground in Breathitt County and threw a st..nc into the Kentucky river, then without moving my feet, though I turned my body slightly, I threw another stone seven miles down the river." "Rats!" interpolated a party who had heard commercial traveler stories be fore. "It's a true bill," insisted the narrator. "It was just seven miles from where the first stone struck the water to where the second one hit. and I'm not a baseball player, either." After some discussion the commer cial traveler held up his hand and swore to his story, and then explained that at Jackson, in Breathitt County, the Ken tucky river swings around a bend for seven miles and comes back to within sixty-eight feet of itself, and a man, standing on the narrow ridge separat ing the waters, can easily toss a stone into the river to the right or left, thus making a throw of seven miles up or down the river, as the case may be. This is the true state of the case. fieanon Tickets Abandoned. M.
