It Will Ba Russls, Which Now ) Bso end to Us In Milssgs. If It Is a question merely of bigness the Russian rallwny system Is far and away the first In Europe. There are already many more miles of railway In this vast empire than lu any other country tn the world excepting the United "States, and DusRlnn railway are: still only In their Infancy. 1) Is of course quite true that there nrej now In the United States more miles of railway than in all RumiM and, almost as many ss In all the rest ol Ue world put together, and that un territory la so large and as yet so far; from complete development that wej shall probably keep the lead aa far; as railway enterprise is concerned for a long time to come. But Jn taking these large views. says Moody's Magazine, we have for gotten that Russia la two and a half Urries as large as all the United States put together with a population more than half as large again hs-our turn; that In territorial extent It is more than twice aa large as all Europe; that It stretches scross the world for 170 degrees of longitude nearly half way around the globe and that It In cludes one-sixth of the land surface of the planet It Is not surprising that In such a country railways Bhould have had a large development, that already there Is a considerable mileage and that the prospects In this direction seem to have no limit. In the future Russia and the United States are likely to di vide the railway empire of the world between them. Money in Rats. The only good rats are dead rats. A.Uve, the rat carries disease. Dead, it may have a commercial value. The skin' Is Hue material for book covers and for making purses and photo-. Krs.ph frames. It may also be used In the manufacture of gloves for women. and In several of the great cities the rat killing Industry is assuming pro portions. The rat tn Scandinavia, a well as the Bpectes known as the Nor wegian, a big bothersome rodent be cause of its fighting proclivities, U particularly valuable for the purpose named. The bodies can be converted into fertilizing material. Thus, . In 'many commercial centres abroad, la the rat being killed by the many , thousands not because it is a menncs to public safety, but because uses have been found for the heretofore worthless hide. The time may come when the rat will be hunted assidu ously In this country, not only be cause of tbe money that's in it, but because it Is our enemy. Indianapolis News.
