Binet in Paris Kevue des llevuos: It appears that the human race is about to reach the summit of the epoch called the reign of humanity. * ..c gt'.'at disco i-orios made; in later times, the exotic countries explored, form a connection of circumstances u'liieh will cst.iblish new processes of uvlli/aiiisii anil a more powerful con- ti'iii'jt iH'tweon different human races. And the races themselves, what, will became of them? This question the distinguished anthropologist, M. Zabovow- skl, has attempted to solve. The globe has now a population of one and one- half billions of people and Indications are diial this will be doubled in a very short: time. Now, it must not be forgotten that, all parts of the globe are to-day visited b.,- people who represent, about one-iiflli of humanity, and these are gifted with a power of expansion which uus never before been realized. But ill distinctive race peculiarities Avill efface themselves. The great digestive K>Avor of tiho Eskimo; the velocity and facility with which a reserve fund of food is supplied by the rapid fattening if the Boehimau; the Simian mobility the feline agility of the dwarfs of the forest, Avill become unnecessary by the rapid approach of civilization. Clvlllzet man has no need of thesfi. Progress Avill also result in the increase of hereditary elements of character, and by this, the rapid union of the human race. For, after all is said, hu- manitj' does not differ very much. In some opinions (lie most degraded Savages Avill some day become civilized, although others consider even intellectual differences between neighboring races as irreducible. According to M. ZaboroAvsld, it is necessary, above all, to preserve all colonies from the encroachments of mere adventurers and to remember that their intelligence only be increased by a corresponding development of their implements, their manual dexterity, the delicacy of their souses, their social habits and their needs. Notwithstanding appearances, there is no cosmopolitan human race, as there is in general no kind of cosmopolitans. It is useless to signalize the dog in tills manner, for it is only a hypothesis AA'hich lias been acted upon in AiAUKKT POULTRY IN FKANGE. Western Farm Journal.—<Of Sill countries, i- ranee takes the lead 1 market poultry culture.

The result Is tlie home market is supplied and enough are left to export. \Vhat a lesson for English and American farmers! liaising capons is one of the most profitable branches adopted by tho French, and It is said no country can equal their product in that line.

D C., in referring to tills style of marketing chicken flesh, tfi'ys that in the octagonal market, of the beautiful city on the Giroudo can be seen peculiar looking carcasses offer cd for sale—carcasses whose leading characteristic seems to be the absence of meat , legs, wings, breast—all gone These limbs and portions are offeree for sale separately, and thus a Borde laise housekeeper, able as all Freud cooks are to make a fine dish witl very littlo meat, can buy a leg or wing or in breast without any of the otlu portions; or, if the purse is not wel lined, then thet carcass can be taken from which a splendid dlslii of soup may be made. ' Even the blood i sold showing tliia.t hero at least, th the proverb, "waste not. want not," i understood and observed.

Bill hadn't got far—weth thet "letter 0' life a,ii deah" lyin snug hi his Inside vest pocket —before he found thet th' bright eyes o' th' lady o' th 1 hacienda, had got. him fast In a Californy snare-. But Snooks was a man o' Iris Avord, an th' (Irst thing he did on roaohln th' rancho o' th' Blazln Brazos wa.s I.' take a look around for Hen Martin, th' smsiirt young clerk an accountant o' th' establishment. Martin was a man o' simple habits an easy f find. He wius stirotched in a. hammock under a big oottonwood, with a cigarette in his couth and a dirty French novel in ills hand. Tie was a, handsome, little fellow, born an bred dii Boston, where most o' th' company stockholders lived, an though his services wasn't; very valuable it was understood t' be worth all it cost to Ills friends t' keep him safely cached 3,000 miles a.way from homo. Snooks 'havlu delivered fh' letter, Martin chucked away his cigarette an percoeded t' read it, not. nolicin thet Bill was .still stiuulln there. Now, as I told y', Bill's affections had taken such a strong dela.welt. around th' lovely senorlta thet, not much fear o' Hen Martin before his eyes, he jest staid there t' see whut'd happen, an in about a minute Martin jumped up, an pitehin his novel after lus cigarette yelled out: "Oh, Lord, wlmt a. fix! Whut an infernal fix!" "Whut's up?" said Bill. There bein nobody else there he took th'e A-IOAA fhot Martin must a-spoke to him. '{Up!" stiid Martin, lookin tit Bill sort o' wildllke. "Everything's up! I'm up; up a tree! Look hoi-o, Bil, y' saw thot girl thet sent me th' letter? We're in love, Bill; madly in love! An at last she's consented t' get. off with me. Listen.

It is reduced, to nothing by the single fact that different dogs were found in different regions at flic quaternary epoch when there were as yet no domestic 'animals. Man, thanks to his intelligence and to the resources of ills intellectual development, alone enjoys the power of acclimation. He modifies by artificial means the place where he is called to live, and he knows how to extenuate or dharm away th'e noxious influences of different climates. This faculty, however, has its limits. Thus, in spite of all the advantages and the pompous display enjoyed by the English in India, they have never been able to raise their families there.

Chicago Tribune: "Catnlhia island, across the bay from Santa Barbara, has a story that attracts eastern tourists to its shores," said W. W. Burt at the Illohellcu yesterday. "In the early dnjys, when the Franciscans dominated the Pacific coast, this island played an important part in the history of that period. The old monastery, which stands on an eminence back of Santa "Barbara, was a haven of rest for the Franciscan fathers and monks on their way from M'exico to the Mission Dolores at. San Francisco or the monastery at Monterey. The occupants of the island were constantly changing, and frequently it was deserted for weeks with the exception of the monks left.In charge.

In effect, to all appearance the greater part of tlie races will disappear, from tlie fact of Che rapid extension of tlie European races. For it is necessary to remember that in tlie movements which are important to the actual world, economic influences ceaselessly intervene and change the provisions of science. For a long time it was supposed that Algeria would never bo colonized by Europeans; but the colonies have transformed the climate, and by careful management of the water lhavo made of Algeria a relatively healthy country. But for a long time, in certain conditions of climate, there will be a place at the .side of the European races for very different races, endowed with ability to work, and thus capable of competing for a great part of the globe. These races are not very numerous, but at their head is found the admirable Chinese, who alone represent one-third of humanity. But there are others who will disappear in a, more or less distant future. Among these, are the Lapps, many of the inhabitants of ancient | Asia, the Yoddahs, Wile Malays, the littlo blacks of thi! Phillipines, of Borneo, and all the other people who, for thousands of years, have refused themselves to all culture, and are only the survivors, surprising to themselves, of an almost vanished age. Also tiho Indians of North i'.nd South America, and the natives of Polynesia. For instance, in 1S5S the. Marquesas islands, according to official statistics, had 11,000 native inhabitants; in 1872 but 0000; and this decrease was almost always caused by An Apploton paper tolls of an alarming experience of a family in that city recently.
