RUSSIAN CROWN LANDS.
Altai Estates Alone Three Times as Large as England and Wales. So much is being .written of the in ternal economy of Russia lately that the extent of crown lands'has escaped attention, says I. H. James, Cleveland. "The czar's Altai estates alone cover an area of over 170,000 square mllerf, being about three times the size of England and Wales. The Nertchisak estates in Eastern Siberia are esti mated at about 76,600 square miles. In the Altai estates are situated the gold and silver mines of Barnaul, Pau lov, Sinljov and Laktjepp, the copper foundry ol GaVrllov, in the Salagirov district The receipts from these enormous estate^ are not commensur ate with their size, but this is largely owing to a deficit in working the mines. The ore from the mines is transported 300 or 400 miles to the smelting works, which ar.e built in districts where wood abounds."—Mil waukee Free Press. Reversing Things.

Wandering idly round the morning after their ar rival, he was passing a church en trance just as a wedding was about to lie'celebrated. To kill the time he went in. The ground floor of the •church was pretty full, but a low, dark gallery near the roof was apparently leserted. The ceremony proceeded on the •even tenor of its way until the minis ter inquired if anyone present knew any reason why the couple before him should not be united together in the holy bonds of matrimony. There was silence for a moment and then a smtll, thin voice in the gallery was heard to say, "Yes. I do." All eyes were turne(d to the gallery, where the figure of a small, milk-and watery-looking individual was barely •Kscernible in the gloom. "State your reason!" said the min ister, fixing the protester with a steel i.v eye. A fit of uncontrollable mifth seized all present when there came from the gallery the diffident, reply: "Please, sir, I—I want the gal my« self!" "GOLD GOLD." "Good," We Says,-"But Comfort Bet ter."

"Grape-Nuts- food I have found easily digested and assimilated, and it has renewed my health 'and vigor and made me a well man again.
