After considerable opposition the additional page was ordered. This marked the only stormy passage in the official career of Capt. Bassett. Since the '30s his lines have been cast in pleasant places among dignitaries who have seemed tireless In their efforts to do him honor, When he had completed his fiftieth, year in their service a magnificent silver salver was prepared and presented to him. This he prized the most of all his earthly possessipns. At. another time a magnificent gold snu« box was presented him because of his efforts in behalf of the snuff-takers of the senate. This'recalls the fact that Capt, Bassett's . principal .duty during «th.e letter,* days of the nineteenth century came through his custodianship of the two black snuff poxes in the recesses at the right and left of the presiding officer of the sen^ ate It is one of the traditions of the senate that these boxes were established because of the persistency with wh'ich senators used to borrow snuff from one of the early Vice-Presidents of the United States, Finally patience ceased to'be.a virtue,'and.calling Capt, Bassett to his aiu the presiding officer directed that boxes; of snuff be maintained at the public expense for the use of senators who like, to take a Mtt« np their noses to make them feel ea»jr Cant, Bassett wa§ fgr ye^rs the o»)y snuff-taker left, but about f8 is annual }y investea ia tW» tloWfcg article «< that ft' supply is always an band in f it js ' '- — >-* •Tho'Largest' VOBBO!. One of the largest vessels ever placed in the cotton trade between this country and Europe is the American, recently launched in Belfast.

European countries, however, the present density of population does not ap-. pear so great. By tho last official enumeration the population per square mile in Belgium was 530 and in England 605. Rhode Island has a water area of 165 square miles, which is more than one-tenth the total surface of the state. The gain in its population has been greatest, of course, in the large cities, but tho manufacturing i-ndu- <*les of Rhode Island are diffused so generally that there are" more than a dozen small towns with rapidly increasing industrial population. Between 1870 and 1890 Pawtucket increased in population from 6,600 to 27,000. Woonsocket from 11,000 to 20,000 and Providence from 08,000 to 132,000. Bristol county, Rhpdo' Island, which is south of Providence on the Massachusetts border, has an area of only twenty-five square miles, whereas New York, prior to the annexation of the new Westchester territory, -had a land area' of forty square miles. An erroneous notion prevails In many quarters that what regulates the density of population in a state or county is the compact habitation of all parts of it, but the fact is that a high percentage of population to the square mile comes from the number of cities and towns within the state or county, and railroads or waterways account largely for-these. No Witter. In India one of the severest punishments meted out to a convert to Christianity is cutting off his access to the village well. His family is compelled at once to tramp through hot sun, and with a heavy water pot, to some distance to get whatever water they use for bathing and cooking. This is all against the law, but sometimes the persecution is so severe as to compel a return to the forsaken faith, or exile from the village. To prevent : th>s the missionaries often have to engage, in behalf of their converts, in long and bitterly fought contests. Most of these persecutions are instigated by a lew high-caste people, who virtually owa the villages, and the majority of the Villagers are usually glad to see the cases decided in favor of the converts.
