A few day's ago the Times-Herald of Chicago, published an Interesting article by one of its contributors. Mr. C. M. Har. gar, eaitltVd "A Prophet YlniEoated.' It waa an account of the now widely known Western wheat statistician, Mr. C Wood Davis of Kansas, who for number of years has maintained that the natio between the increase cf the wheat-growing area and the Increase of the bread-eating population of the world wu such that the time must come when the wheat supply would not be suftVien to feed those who depend upon wheat bread for their daily food. He claims the statistics prove, that the brwul-eaUrg pop ulation of the world Increases at th rate of fourteen per cent In ten year, the wheat-growing acreage Increases In the same period at the rate of only seven per cwnt, and that this must ultimately lead to scarcity of wheat at high prices. This Malthuslan doctrine was first pub lished six years ago. Immediately prior to th beginning of the great wheat-crop years, a--vi the subsequent course of wheat prices made the theories of Sir. Davis look baseless. If not ridiculous. At all events, bis ideas were received with wpncisro ana tie . was treated, on the exchangee, as all prophets are treated In their own country, with derision. Mr. Partridge and the Chicago bears went on selling wheat short on the board of irons, noiwunstanoing Jlr. Uavls. very much to their own subsequent profit. But the years of plenty ceased, and now we have come upon a year that shows that after an there Is something in these statlsnles. in an article In the Octolr Forum, entitled "The Impending Defic iency of Ervad Stuffs," Mr. Davis return? to hi subject anj enforce his con clusions with aa array of figures that are really s-.artBng. We cannot here fully analyse this in teresting paper, oor do much more than commend It to the consideration of our readers. Mr.Davis shows that the bread eating population of the world is mainly ef European ltneuge, Inhabiting Asiatic Russia, the United States, Canada, Aus tralia, Argentina, Braxll, Uruguay, Chile. Souto Africa and Europe. In 1ST1 thi population numbered S7y.,O0), and It now aggregates 510,000,000, the Increase being 35.5 per cent In twenty-six years. In tie same period of time the ar?a of wheat production has only Increased from 258,700,000 to !7S.fi,ft,or 7.5 per cent. This does not Include corn, or maiz-, which is very little used as a grain food by people outside of the United States. It would undoubtedly be, how ever, If it came to starvation pricts for other bread-stuffs though Mr. Davis do-s not seem to take this Into consideration. His conclusion In regard to the. wheat situation, of the world is "that wi:h acre yields no better than the average of 12.7 bushels of the last 20 harvests from contributory areas, the output woull b 275,('VAiQ bushels or the net product ef 27,000,000 acres less than prestn. needs." The views of Mr. Davis, coming is thy do at this time, not on the eve of plenti ful years, but when there la a decided scarcity.may meet with a different recep tion from, wbot they did six years ago. The government will probaby Institute an Inquiry, through the Nicaragua canal oomlsslon or otherwise, of the extent and effect of the recent grant by Nic aragua to the Atlas Steamebip company, a British corporation of exclusive rights of navigation for the next thirty years f the Sain Juan river and Lake Nicara gua. These two waterways are said to form two of the links of what will ulti mately be the Nicaragua cana.l The state department recently received a report from Consul O'Hara 1n Nicaragua, giving brief details of the concession granted to the British company, and saying that ft embraced various exclusive privileges In the Silicon lagoon, the San Juan river and Lake Nicaragua. Sine then adiil. tlonal Information has become avallabl es to the plans of the Attas company. The Silicon lagoon Is said to be off the route of the canal, and It 1s argued that there Is no reason why this should not pass Into the exclusive control of the ltrltlub company. The excavations he ginning at Oreytown and running thence west, unite with the San Juan river, which In turn leads to lnke Nicaragua, after which the artificial cut Is continued to th rnolfic. lndvr the circumstances It Is saM that exclusive privileges of nav. Igntlon In these two waterways for th next thirty yers would In effect llm'.i the navigation of the Nicaragua nui1. Whether the concession makes any exevp. tlon Is this reenrd Is not known. An official familiar with N"Ur.isua -:unl i'.iT.iirs says that the ovKtwalun would have to bo construed as subsequent to that to the e.-imtl company, nd the Int. ter's rishtJ In the Am Juan river a:il Like Nicaragua h belW'Ved would b? fully rtvosnlsod by Nicaragua. l!ut the danger, he added, was that whwt the Amvrtcan company's concosslon expired, two jvars hence, then th British corpor ation w-ouki succor, xindvr the terms of the recent concession, to all exclusive rights of navigation In these two links of the canal. For this rvason It is be lieved that the government or the canal company will take s-.vpa to learn defin itely If this exclusive privilege extended to the privilege of navigating the lake and river when they become part of the tntvroceanto eanal. A Washington dispatch says that Secretary Long has decided to send the Newport, now at Boston, with the commission. The New. port Is a composite gunboat, using either steam or sail, and Is well equipped. She Is copper-sheathed, an Is not subject to fouling In Southern waters.

The prospect Is very encoursging that the distribution of pasteurised milk, de void of all microbic germs, among the children of the poor at a nominal price, will become general in the large cities of the United States. While this benev olence will be a blessing to the babies, our adult population enjoy an equally great one !n the ber.'fit confff-ed by Hostetter's Stomach Bit'ers '.:ron rer- sons afflicted with kidney and bladder complaint.

Diseases. Insignificant at the outset, enlarge their proportions and capacity for destruction through neg. Ject. Another point of Importance In usnlg this sterling remedy Is, that should be taken with regularity and per sistence. Dirty hands and rings form a most un desirable combination. Sometimes the most careful women are the most careless. Many a woman bun. dies herself up to keep out sickness when he Is neglecting the very wors sickness that can come to a woman. She allows a slight disorder to become worse. to slowly sap her vitality. The little pain and the other sight Indications of trouble seem to her unimportant. She goes on. with Increasing suffering, until life Itself becomes a drag. Nervousness, sinking spells," digestive disturbances, and fifty other -complications may arise from the derangement of the organs distinctly feminine. Over thirty years ago the need for a reliable remedy for so-called "female complaints" was recognised by Dr. R. V. Pierce, then, as now. chief consulting physician to the World" DIs. pensary and Invalids' Hotel at Buffalo. N. T.
