Outotrlppjnu Anything That Ever Hat
' Been Known In History Is the

Tho United States Is tho. wealthiest
country lu tho world. In tho brief
spun of its young llfo Ihlu lnfitnl na
tion of olir-,has broken all records to
luting tu tho accumulation of tlchoj,
and wo nro beginning to think ot bil
lions Instead of millions. Tuko II any

Our counliy hns mote actual money,

(rllmllon of tho limn lea which richer
bihig Ihau any other nation hns over
euloycd sluco time began.
One day last October Undo Sum

In tho vaults ot thu treasury, i total
or ?l,.,5!,598,278.Ct. II required fiom
July I to September C to count the
moucy, nud nt tho completion of tho
task the accounts balanced lo a frac
tion, Tho costliest governmental estab
lishment lu tho world Is the British
navy, upon which a billion and a hair
has been expended within tho last ten
cara. Yet threw Individual Anieil
caus Kockcfcllor, Carnegie and Clark
could havo paid tho whole bill and
still hao some" pocket money left.
The United Stntcs Is now spending
about a hundred millions a year on Its
navy, and wc nro now at thin kind ot
cxpendltiiio. Thut wo aio not invest
ing moro than wo can ufford Is shown
by tho fact that our dlaplny-lovliig
women spent $100,000,000 for dia
monds put chased In foreign lands dur
ing the last two ij'cars. In fact, wo
nro so rich that tho sulcs of produco
nud manufactured articles that wo aro
bending abroad each, year Is equal to
a sum sufficient, to ndpport all the
navies In tho world.
When It comes In Individual wealth
wo havo a dozen cJUzons who arc
worth moro than all rthc klugs and
rulers of tho world, taken collectively
or severally. Tho czar of RubMla Is
reputed to have a grcator lncomo than
any other living man, but his private
for.luuo Ib bo mixed up with trio gov
ernmental lovcuues that it is Impossi
ble lo sopnuto them. If a distinction
could bo nindo John D. Itockelollor
could undoubtedly make a comparison
with Iho wouk-splncd Nicholas, and
show tho blggeal pile. Tho ItuoHlnu
monarch's wealth is tho accumulation
of an emplio, centurion old in the mak
ing, while tho Ohio oil magnate can
remember when he had nothing.
To say lhat tho t'otal valuation of
tho wealth of tho United States Is
?107,000,000,000 is not understandable.
A hundred billion dollars lu such a
pllo of money that tho simple mind
cannot grasp, lis moanlug on tho In
stant. It is moro than twico tho total
amount of tho wealth of tho United
Kingdom, of France, or of Ooimany;
und ovor three times that of ItiiEsla
or of Austria-Hungary." Probably tho
best way of Illustrating tho nctual ox
lent of Undo Sam's riches la In stale
that if he could convert nil hlu assets
Into money ho would havt. nearly four
times as much as would bo required
