ToKitE was a larger amount of gold mined in this couoiry In 1894 than In any year during the last quarter of a r.entury, ac ording to the report of Walls, Fargo & Co., one of the best authorities. The amount, is placed Ht §45,892.000 an Increase of $11 690 000 over tbe previous 3 tar. Tbe value of the silver mined in 1894 was &bout $10,000,000 less ihan in 1S93, but tbi- decre&88 was largely Quo to tbe decline ID price, the weight produced being nearly as large as in the previous year. THE disioteresied spirit of economy tbai pervades ihe present Legislature was clearly shown in tbe House on Thursday whon that body voted to do away with tbe offi :e of pas inspector, it having heen proved that it was a usele-s office. The f»ct that a Repub Ucan held the office had no weight with the Republican mnjorliy. Such disinterested legislation is au innovation in this Stito where tbe Demo cratic party has so Ion? legislated in the '.meres: of party and not of the people. THE increasing co=t of a collegiate uciuion in this country is forcibly shown by Professor Char esT Tawing a paper In the Forum. In 1830 the average expenses of a student at Harvard wore $176. while in 189S they ranged, for an economical bludei t from $48* 10 |S07. This shows that a lOllegiate education is becoming ver? expensive. It costing' &s much to support a student a year at college *»'iV does to keep an average American' THB Wabash.

Tho American board of foreign missions representing 1 the Congregational churoli, has scoured, the opinion oi liev, Henry Bloclg-ctt, D. D,, of Pc-kin, who lias spent, forty years iu tho service of Lho board und thirty years in Pekin, and who is now in this country. Dr. llloilfjeu has responded to the request, of the "board as follows: "Ainonff the common people of China „ little is known re^ardm"- the causes oi I ^ T cbo is represented, the war or the facts occurring in its I a long, flowing beard, but no costume pro-Toss, and the wildest and most ab- i cun be traced. This figure is not full " - - ' length, boiug cut off about the calves, and represents probably the Chaldean The third LoDuun Graphic. Tlicse intorcKir.p specimens of the early metal work eunn: from a place known to the iiiu-ii-nts as Sir-pur-ra, or Lagrish, the modern name of which is Tcll-lo, a l:irge mound I or site in southern Chaldca. One of the bronzes shows the king °^ Babylonia, who appears clean-shaven, in the dress of the high priest. The garment reaches down to the feet, and is crossed over the left shoulder, leaving the right arm, which is raised, bare. Tho statuette is a full length one, standing on its own double plinth, and is some-twelve inches high. This bronze comes from Abu Ilabbab, and dates about B. C, 2200. A second statuette represents a king in the attitude of adoration or contemplation, having his hands raised and clasped to- j gether in a similar manner as the god ' The Uinpr wears ., surd rumors are afloat. In Japan everything is published, and their cities and .towns are illuminated at every victory over the Chinese. In consequence, partly, of this, the most intense CEthusi- asm,.for the war prevails, even the boys and girls in their schools practicing military drill. 'On to Pclcin'was the cry everywhere as ivc passed through the country. The treaty powers desire peace and Will use their influence to secure it. China is ready for peace, even on humilitating terms. Japan may consent to give up the march, on Pekin and grant terms of peace such as can be accepted. Vet these terms may "be somewhat diflicult to find. They involve tiic interests oi European powers, as well as those ol China and Japan. The great Siberian railway will bo finished in a few years. Will Russia be satisfied tohave Vladivo- stock, a port which is closed by ice four months each year, as the terminus ol this railway on tin; seaboard? Will she not wish for her transcontinental railway a port farther south which is; open all the year; that is to say, a port of Korea. But such a port would make Russia a leading power on the eastern borders of China and in the Pacific ocean. Will England consent to such ,an arrangement? Will France and Gcr- .many consent? Will China and Japan consent? The only solution seems to be to give autonomy to the nation guaranteed by all the powers. As for For- ,'mosa, Great P>ritain and France would both oppose the cession of that island ,tO Japan. It is a matter of course that ia heavy war indemnity should besought by Japan, and to this claim China will "be compelled to ag-veo. It is not improbable that close commercial and political relations will spring up between China and Japan. For the most part missionaries have remained in their places. In Pekin and elsewhere work is carried forward without obstruction. Thus far the missionaries of the seven stations of the American board in North China have continued at their ,posts and engaged in their usual labors-. Without doubt rulers and people \vill be greatly hu-' miliatcd. With the common people the matter will end here. They leave national interests to the government. The government, the literary classes, and the business men of China have been taught agrandobjcet lesson on the futility of their old methods and the necessity of adopting the neiv. In November the writer in passing through the city of Osaka was permitted to visit forty-nine wounded Chinese prisoners. They were quartered in the largest temple in Osaka. They were furnished with a sufficient bedding and abundant food. The best medical and surgical aid -eras aCordcd them, tbe surgeon in charge having received his ms^lical education in Berlin. They seemed cheerful and thoughtful. When vrc remember that early in the war a Chinese governor ofTered one hundred and fourteen dollars for the head of a i Japanese private and double that | amount for the head of an officer, such | treatment of Chinese prisoners by the Japa.ncse is the more remarkable. Nor ; it greatly to be wondered at if in king, budea, JJ. C.' 2. r jOO. figure, which stands seven inches high, represents Camil-Sin, king of Babylonia, in the. character of a basket bearer, both arms being uplifted und supporting a basket borne on the head. The date of the figure is about li. C. ;i200. It is supposed that these statuettes may have been dedications to Kingir.su, the fire god, whose worship was a particular cult at Te!l-lo. The art of making bronze casts was known to the Babylonians from very early times, and many examples arc to bo seen in the British museum, as well as in the Louvre. A plaster cast of a Babylonian queen, taken from the original in the Louvre, stands by the side of the new additions, casts of which have been sent to the French museum. ;i!;fiH--i uguivs iH'Ioiv I no \v:ir in IMIU. wlii-n it. was -ijuOO.iXK) l>;ik\s i»f -I~U pounds: If'J'J was the bust \v:ir for cot- sun since, (hi! crop being'.i.UOO.DOu hales of -j~0 pounds.

Compared with the value of the corn and cotton crop, the other agricultural productions of the United Slates occupy a subordinate position, .the value of the wheat crop being S223,000,000, oats $21-1,000,000, potatoes 501,000,000, barley S2T,000,000, rye 513,000,000 and buckwheat $7,000,000. Two surprises because of the difl'cr- ence in value compared with ordinary public expectations arc hny a.ncl tobacco. The hay crop of the United States amounted last year to 5'J5S,000,000 iu value; the tobacco crop, on the other hand, amounted _ to only $27,000,000. The last year preceding (1S03) the tobacco crop was 50 per cent, greater, and considerably more than half of it came from two states, Kentucky and Tennessee. Kentucky stands at the head of the tobacco states. Pennsylvania is at the head of those in the north. Connecticut comes next;' New •York is fourth.

Kentucky Moonnhln<;ni Not Nearly So Na- nmroua i>» Is oencrnlly Thought, In an interview the other day the commissioner of internal revenue said that practically every dollar of the tax on Kentucky whisky was collected, and with less expense than any other revenue due the federal government. The commissioner is, of course, correct, but this has not been tiic popular opinion. The "moonshiner," says the Louisville Courier-Journal, has taken such a prominent part in the literature of the day—in newspapers, magazines and books—that his numbers have been as much magnified as those of that sorry- set of scoundrels who attacked the brave Sir John Falstaff on Gad's hill. Ambitious dialect writers and a horde of cheap humorists have added their contribution to the prevailing impression. Ambitious revenue officers, aided and abetted by zealous reporters they take into their confidence, break- out at irregular periods with stories of their prowess in raiding illicitdistillorlcs and. capturing bloodthirsty revenue outlaws. Many arc (.heir hairbreadth escapes, and thrilling are the battles in which they have engaged. These stories of moonshiners acd moonshining are the response to a strong public demand, the appetite for the romantic being especially lively in connection with a state whose people are considered to have such marked personal characteristics as Kentuckians. Cut they must be taken with a large amount of salt. We certainly have very few moonshiners in Kentucky, and they are not numerous or bloodthirsty anywhere. Usually they are poor people who lack industry or pluck enough to succeed in farming or other vocations. Such men will not fight if they can help it, and their operations arc generally on the smallest sort of a scale. Their numbers are equally insignificant, and out of all proportion to the space they take up £n the newspapers. CORN AND COTTON. Tiro Stap'ea In Which tho tnlted St»tei l,«ai!» the Whole YForld. Cotton and corn are the two great American staples, and the ttvo in which the United States stands easily at the head not only of all countries, but of all countries combined, says the New York Son. The total cotton supply of the world, figured on the basis of bales of 400 pounds each, is about 12,' bales,. and of this amoun 1'oiir Hundrml or tin; nimlvwi Survlvcil the Trip to Capo To\rn. "The consignment of one thousand oysters, which arrived by the Athenian recently, are destined for Salt river. They were sent out to the order of James Scarle, of Port Elizabeth, who intended locating them in the /Cwart- kops river, but owing to the unsatisfactory results of the experiment made by the government in that .stream he changed his mind, and generously offered them to the agricultural department," says the Cape Xews; "Tbe beds where these exiled natives are to be deposited are situated a few Irjndred yards from tho mouth of the river. wpert.nospiHua, -or anxt)iuances,-jislftey lire sometimes called, .hiwe..been:.spe- cially constructed, foe-, their reception, consisting ofwooderufratnes fitted with galvanized -wire, and so arranged as to•furnish adequate protection from the ntUicks of a predatory enemy. •'The consignment of oysters brought out bv the Eoslin Castle has not turned out so successfully as was at first anticipated. ,0n careful examination it was found that of the one thousand oysters imported by last vessel to the order of the government, only between three and four hundred had survived the climatic changes incidental to a long sea voyage, added to the novel conditions of life in a tank. Last year two thousand oystors wore brought out under the care of an expert, and of these, it seems, only one. hundred and fifty were lost on the outward run. The survivors were planted in the 'Zwartkops river, and of these only four hundred are now alive. The acclimatization of oysters in South Africa, evidently requires great patience, a.s well as the highest skill." (.tiuff* at Impure Milk.
