number of births in France was 10,000
less than the average for the last ten
years. The increase for 1899 was but
one-fifth of 1 per cent, while Germa
ny's increase was 1.12 per cent, or.
taking into ronsideration the popula
tion, six times that of France. No
wonder the figures are causing French
statesmen much concern.
Of course, the military establish-

estimates that the number ot militia
is 110.000. The regular army is
100,000. Incase of an emergency.
the United States could, however.
call out 10,432.013 men. It is not
too much to say that this large army
would be superior to the army of any

The Coroner's Two Verdicts.
'Inquests are sometimes very funny
affairs," remarked a western man. "I
remember one In tbe early days of my
county in Kansas. A man was found
dead by the side of a small stream out
on the prairie. No mark was found
on bis well dressed body. Ills gun
was fully loaded in bis hip pocket, and
$25 was found in bis pocket book. Of
course the coroner took charge of the
money. A jury was impaneled and
after finishing its deliberations found
that the man clearly died of heart fail
The coroner promptly paid from the-
dead man's pile the $12 due for ex
penses and discharged the Jury. The
$13 remaining bothered blm. He ar
gued that to turn that $13 over to the
county, to be held in trust for tbe
man's possible relatives, would be tbe
same as throwing it away. The man
was a stranger in those parts. Possi
bly he bad no friends.
The coroner was equal to the occa
sion, however. He declared himself
dissatisfied with the verdict and call-
th Jury together again. Tbey sat

WHAT MODERN SAILORS FEAR
Kot Winds and Seas, bat am Explo
Ion Which Seattle the Ship.
"Boiler explosions are tbe terrorof
the seafaring man," said a old time
deep water captain. "Such a thing is
bad enough on dry land, but imagine a
catastrophe of that kind at sea. In
ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it
means the absolute wiping out of the
craft Itself and every eoul on board.
The average landsman . would be
greatly shocked in looking over the
maritime records to see bow many ves
sels disaDDear each year and leave
absolutely uo clew to their fate. Tbey
run well up to the hundred mark, and
uch a mystery is not to be explained
away by storms. A Chinese typhoon
may swoop down like lightning out of
a clear sky and tear a ship to pieces,
but some floating wreckage is sure to
tell the tale. A boiler explosion, on the
contrary, will blow a bole as big as
railroad tunnel right through the center
of tbe bull, and the stricken vessel
elniDlv coes down like a shot. There
Is no time to unfasten a boat from tbe
davits or cut loose a spar.
"In the opinion of seamen, that is
the story of at least 90 per cent of the
shins that leave port and are never
beard of again. Luckily the modern
system of marine boiler Inspection
is extremely strict and thorough, but it
Is Impossible to absolutely prevent
carelessness and fraud, and often
enough, no doubt, the fault lies with
"There is an old f tory of a drunken
Scotchman who. mistook tbe ther
mometer for the steam gage and 'cuss
ed out' tbe stokers because be couldn't
get the pressure above 80. That yarn
will hardly hold water, but I've seen
cases almost as bad. I am glad to say,
however, that during tbe past 10 years
there has been a steady diminution of
the number of vessels which 'mys
teriously disappear.' That is due, be
yond all question, to tbe increased
stringency of boiler Inspection and the
greater strictness of examinations be
fore a license is issued to engineers,
Nevertheless there is still considerable
room for improvement In both
branches." New Orleans Times-Demo
