per cent and there Is a steady sale for our
flour, tools and machinery. There U no
reason why we should not sell cotton and
all porta of food stuffs.
When I visited Eim name years ago the
Oriental was the best hotel. It Is situated
right on the Menam river, with windows
opening; out upon it. There is no glass In
the windows, but the climate is warm the
year round. The only objection I had to
the- place was the lizards; they crawl up
the walls and are liable to drop In one'a
mouth if he sleeps with It open.
I could fill this paper with the oppor
tunities for the American drummer In India.
The field Is enormous. India has more than
three times as many people as the whole
United States and It buys foreign goods to
the amount of almost $1,000,000 a day the
year around. It la one of the great manu
facturing countries of the globe, exporting
more than It buys. It Is a land of big cities.
Calcutta, where the drummer first' lands
If lie goes direct from Singapore, has more
than 1,000,000 inhabitant, and Horn bay.
Where he leaves, has 800,000. Madras, In
southern India, has 500,000 people, and Hal
darabad, in the Interior, Is almost as large.
Lucknow, Benares. Delhi and Lahore have
each more than ao.OflO, and there are twenty
other cities which have more than 100,000
each. Indeed, Hindoostan Is peppered with
towns, and as you cross it on the railroad
from Calcutta to Bombay you strike many
of the principal ones.
We often hear of the poor of India. We
also bear of the rajahs and the multitud
inous rich. The rich want luxuries and the
maaufacturcrs want the best of machinery,
and machine tools. . There is an enormous
number of well-to-do people who can afford
to buy American goods, and, as It is now,
our furniture, jewelry, clocks, watches,
stationery and machinery of all kinds are

The distance from Calcutta to Bombay Is
something like l.ono miles. It Is almost as
far as from New York to Bait I.ake. There
Is a good railroad connecting the two cities,
and the trip can tie easily made. Among
the chief business men of Bombay are the
Pamees, who deal extensively In American
The salesman can stop at Rangoon on his
way to Calcutta, if he takes the British
India line, and this will give him a chance
to work Burmah. Rangoon has about a
quarter of a million population. General
Grant said it was bound to be one of the
greatest ports of the world, and It is fust
becoming so. It is the gateway to a coun
try six times as big as the state of Ohio,
with 10.OCIO.000 and with some of the rich
est soil of the far east, Mandalay, a city
of 183.000, the old capital of Burmah, can
be reached by rail from Rangoon.
Another way to Calcutta ia by way of
Ceylon, where there are about l.WW.OOO peo
ple, including 10.000 Europeans. The chief
port of Ceylon is Colombo, a city of 108,
000, lighted by electricity and having all
modern Improvements. The hotels are
The ordinary American drummer will
go from Bombay to the Gulf of Bites, cross
ing the Red sea and the 8ue canal, thus
making his way Into the Mediterranean.
He can if he wishes stop at the town of
Sues and ship his sample trunks direct to
Cairo by rail. In Cairo he will find a Urge
foreign colony and many native and Greek
merchants who do an enormous trade, not
only with Egypt and interior Africa, but
with different parts of the Mediterranean.
Parts of Cairo are like a European city.
The better hotels charge M and $5 a day
and upward and I bey are well patronised.
There are something like 8,000 Europeans
and Americans in Cairo every winter and
the most of these are rich men who go
thero for their health or pleasure.
Egypt Is In a prosperous condition. It
has been building new railroads and there
are 800 miles of light railway lines on the
Egyptian farms In addition to the' trunk
lines, which do a regular freight and pas
senger business. There Is an electric rail
road In Cairo and one which connects Cairo
with the Pyramid. All sorts of electrical
machinery aie In demand and also mir
hardware and farm tools.
After working Cairo the drummer will
make his way down to Alexandria by rail,
whence he con visit Palestine and Asiatic
Turkey. About one day by steam will bring
him to Jaffa. There Is now a railroad
from Jaffa to Jerusalem and a few hours
there might result in some sales to the
Jews and Turks of that city.
At Beirut, the port for Damaacus, there
1 a good chance to sell American goods.
Our agricultural Implements, leather,
pumps and canned stuffs are said to be In
demand there. Our hardware la much liked
and the country Is such that the American
wind mill is needed.
It Is the same at Smyrna and other
places In Asia Minor and all the ports of
the Mediterranean sea. By the time the
drummer reaches this part of the world
he should have his order book pretty well
filled and he can take boat for Italy or the
Strait of Gibraltar and thence in one week
go directly to New Tork. ,

European powers had other ships which
they could send out.

of Venexuela and could defy the world."

Bolivar with Washington, greatly to the

Life in Hot Water
The highest temperature at which a liv
ing organism can exist Is probably 89 de
grees centigrade, or 101 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thla is the temperature of hot springs, in
which filamentous micro-organisms have
been found by Prof. W. A. Sotchell. He
searched carefully for life in geysers of
Sonoma county, California, which are still
hotter, but was unsuccessful. The limits
of life In water containing silica are con
siderable lower, and they are still lower
in water containing lime. No organisms
were found in acid waters, and all the
strictly thermal organisms are of very
low grade. The cell structure is peculiar,
and the protoplasm must be different from
the ordinary kind, for that would be
coagulated by the heat. The exact nature
of this difference, however, is yet undis
covered. Success.
