Vegetation on the Earth. The Dei Isely luxuriant tropical plants with their lofty Palms and wilderness of creepers the More open Woods of Oak Elm or Pine and tire Plains of grass or Heather of temperate climes the mosses and lichens or the far North and the millions of minute Alagic on Fields of Snow the enormous masses of Marine plants and the multitudinous Green threads of every Pond or Rivulet Are one and All continually engaged during the hours of Daylight in tearing from the atmosphere its Carbon and in sucking from the Earth or sea its water with the Mineral substances dissolved in Itin order to build up new masses of organic substance from these purely inorganic materials. The Quantity of living matter thus daily formed May be truly termed enormous. The dry land of the Earth a surface is estimated at 22,392,430 Square Miles. Lotus assume that of this 15,000,000 Square Miles or a Little Over two thirds Are clothed with vegetation neglecting altogether the vegetation of the Ocean and let but the 365th part of an Inch be the growth of this surface daily and every year will be formed a mass one Inch thick Aud 15,-000,000 Square Miles in extent which would make a solid cube of vegetable matter about fifteen Miles in extent in each dimension. It is thus no wonder that should have accumulations of vegetable debris in the form of Coal in some parts of the world As in Pennsylvania which May be in alternating Beds seventy feet in thickness and extending Over an area larger than that of ii i Shire. The wonder at first sight r rather that the size of the solid Earth does not in succeeding Ages notably increase at the expense of its fluid and Aeri form matter. But fast As organic matter is thus accumulated by so enormous and incessantly acting a Matt factory its fabric is nevertheless much like the web of Penelope for close upon life follows death and with the death of All organisms their substance by decomposition returns again for the most part As water carbonic acid ammonia and various gases etc., to that organic world whence it was originally derived. By mrs. Leg. Atwood. Patty Bright sat by the Kitchen table her elbows resting upon it and her Chia in her hands. A huge White bowl of stoned raisins standing by her showed what she had been doing. But it could to very plainly seen that Patty a Tho gets were resting on something very different. The truth is. A a hard Titus a a was Star ing Patty in the face and although he looked very ugly Patty was staring Back at him steadily and unflinchingly. It was not at All necessary for As far As she was concerned she had never known the meaning of poverty. Fortune had been very kind to miss patience Bright sr., Patty a Only Friend and protector. Her bares were overflowing with plenty her cellars stored with fruits and vegetables and better still her Money was so carefully put away that if All of the Banks in the country were broken and if All of the railroads failed it would make no difference to miss patience. So with a mind Calm and Serene Patty sr., moved around her Kitchen grinding her spices and mixing her mice meat. But with a mind anything but Calm and Serene Patty jr., at by the table thinking. Miss patience rattled the stove doors poked Down the ashes Ami banged Tho shovel and tongs. Sri i Patty never moved. A bring me the eggs child a she said still Patty did no to hear. So miss patience went to the cellar brought out a Basket of the pure White chocolate coloured and speckled eggs broke the Whites in a big Blue Platter and drop pc. The Yolks in a bowl then sitting Zowi by the table Bogan to pile them up i White masses by her steady strokes. Every Little while she looked up at Patty s dreamy face and misty eyes. A come child a she said at last a a you be been there Long enough. Beat up those elks till they f Arr. Tiered enough to Patty took up tile la it we and wooden a spoon but she moved languidly Aud a it if her heart was somewhere else. A Why Don t Yon hurry a miss up Tience said sharply. A a there a your Uncle Eben coming on the 5 of Ciocu train and aunt Maria in the morning and All this cooking to be got out of to a a what a the Good of it All auntie Patty asked. A Don t they get enough to eat at Home a miss patience reddened with indignation and dropped her Fork in the midst of the White foam. A the land Sakes a she exclaimed. A a i guess there never was a Bright yet but had All he could eat and More too a a a what do they do with the More too a give it away a Patty ask i. Miss patience looked at her Supi Cio sly a a what Are you thinking his Only Chance. Patients a do you mean to say that my complaint is a dangerous one a doctor a a very dangerous one my dear Friend. Still people have been known to recover from it so you must not give up All Hope. But recollect erne things your Only Chance is to keep a cheerful Frame of mind and avoid anything Uke depression of London punch. About child a she sail. A speak it out. Early in the morning Patty had gone off on an errand and while she was gone she bal seen something which had stirred her childish soul As nothing had Ever done before and Ever since she came Home she had Beta trying to think of the Best Way to present a petition to aunt Patty and now that the Opportunity had come of its own will her heart trembled and he spirit failed. But aunt Patty was waiting with her Fork in the air and her eyes on Patty. So with her Cheek burning and her voice tot in Slons from Hope and fear she said a kaon Patty do you remember the Brewers a a pfc Kift a set a she said setting her lips very firmly and beating her eggs More fiercely than Ever. A they May be shiftless aunt but i know they re hungry a said Patty waxing bolder. A hungry in this land of plenty a said aunt Patty contemptuously. A a id like to know what put such nonsense in your head. How did you happen to see them anyway a a mph Tell you ail about it a said Patty feeling braver every minute. A i was going by this morning to Tell Mary Jane to come up Iii the morning and pick the turkeys when Nannie Brewer knocked on the window and beckoned to me to come in. And auntie if you la believe it she sat in the rocking chair with an old bed quilt around her and hardly a speck of lire in the stove. I wanted to put some Wood in but she looked so nervous and said no. Then she asked me to go to the closet and bring her a Glass of water. I help looking around auntie and there was Only half a loaf of bread on a plate and the least Little scrap of butter in a broken Tea cup. I took her the water but i Felt every minute As if i should cry she looked so White and hungry. Then she asked me to go Down the cellar and see if her Kitten was there. It took me a Good while to find the Kitten and aunt Patty there Wasny to a thing in that cellar to eat but a few potatoes and Beans and a Little piece of pork not one can of fruit or an Apple. T say a word to Nannie when i came up i had such a big Lump in my Throat. So i just put her Kitten in her Lap and ran. And i help thinking aunt Patty that we might just As Well Send them enough to last a pm a week. And what s new years Good for if you can t make Oiler people Happy too a Patty stopped trembling Ami excited with her Long speech and looked eagerly at aunt Patty. But if she expected her to throw open cellar and pantry doors and Tell her that All she had was also hers and to take what she wanted for Nannie she was greatly aunt Patty did nothing of the kind. She Only marched to the cellar with her Platter of snowy foam and marched Back again with a pan of red apples and set them Down before Patty. A spare Mem and Aliene in a she said. Patty a heart Sank a Down and a great tear dropped of from her eyelashes As she took no the knife and began to Cut off the Rosy skins. Miss patience saw the tear but she did no to say anything an i if she Felt anything she kept it to herself. All Day Long she kept Patty flying. When there were i o More eggs to be beaten or fruit to be picked Over there was Silver to clean mirrors to brighten pillows to beat up an i pitchers to fill with fresh water. But Patty had a a builder better than she knew a for of Tex the last Little Cousin Hail been tucked up in bed and she Hershf had gone to sleep tired out but not too tired Aud sleepy to have an ache in her heart for Nannie aunt patience sat up alone grim and silent before the open fire thinking thinking. Remember the Brewers i should think she did Remender Tho Brewers. Away Back before Patty a Brown eyes or nannies Blue ones had opened upon this world when a unt Patty a Aad wrinkles bad been curve and dimples and the Gray of Lier hair had been Golden Nannie brewery a father a i been aunt patience a Lover. Handsome and gentle but Augayo Ziy Tahu <.r, Ivy a int Patty called it n it we shiftless a he had strayed away j from his allegiance at sight of the fir pretty face that Cai in in la Way and aunt Patty Shook Hita off wit ii Shaip and bitter words and never looked up i in his face again. Not even when he Lay dying and sent for her would she go near him. So he said As in had said to Mary i times in his life a a it is just As Well a and with a gentle smile turned los face to True Wall and did. Since then there had been hard struggles for Nannie and her Mother. To be sure there Baa been struggles before but they a try together. Baft miss patience had never so much As spoken to either of them. But now Patty a simple Story a i stirred miss patience a wrinkled heart strangely. Dick brewery a child starving she sat before the fire till the log broke in two and the coals scattered Over the bricks. Then she arose put out her Candle and Lay Down by Patty a Side. Nev. Yea morning Wacl red Bright and Patty waked to find the Sun streaming through the frosty on her bed and the place by her Side vacant. A ooh dear a she said springing out of bed and hurrying on her clothes. A a in a late again and aunt Patty will be so but aunt partly teemed unusually gentle As she babe in r Good morning and that and the Sunshine made Patty feel tory Light hearted As she danced around setting the Tai in. But when she went into the cellar to Kim the Cream for breakfast and saw the two great turkeys with their wings folded on their breasts Aud tire tiny pig with the ear of Corn in his Mouth All ready for tin oven the hanging shelves loaded with Flaky pies and the huge Stone crocks full of Pound cake and fruit cake she thought again of Nannie Brewer s empty shelves and Barren cellar and sin Drew a Long sigh As she came Back where her a unt Patty was. She saw the change in Patty face but she did t ask any quit lion or make any allusions to the conversation of the Day before until after Tho breakfast had been cleared away and Patty was putting on her cloak and Bat to go to Church. Then she put her hand co in. R shoulder and said a Patty what make you look so unhappy a a i feel so sorry about Nannie said Patty choking a sob Down in in r Throat. A a Well a said aunt Patty a a you Stop there on your Way Home irom churl and perhaps you d feel a Job aunt Patty a she shouted throwing her Anna around her Nevi. A a what hav you been doing a a there go along child. You be crushed my clean Collar and knocked your hat sideways.9 and miss patience gave her a gentle push toward tire dour. Patty ran off feeling exhilarated Aud expectant. She could hardly sit still through the Sermon although she tried Vera hard to be attentive and even the Beautiful anthems made very Little impression upon her. Aud. When the service was All Over and the uncles and aunts and cousins were exchanging greetings in to Vestibule she ran away from the in All Dawn the Road to nannies. When she knocked at the door and Nannie called a a come in a Patty knew by the change in her voice that some away and the children worn out with Blind Many a Buff and puss in the Corner had been tucked snugly away in their Beds. When the other grown up people were talking about a Sauld Lang syne a and aunt patience sat in front of the fire alone Patty Drew up her Stool put Lier head on her knee Aud told her airs.

We cannot Hope for Many years yet to have anything like accurate statistics on the population of Africa. Several regions the population of which is certainly great wiil probably Long escape anything like a thorough examination. There Are for example in the regions of the great lakes countries quite As thickly populated As Many of the states of in rope. Stanley tells us of countries of relatively Small extent and which yet possess millions of inhabitants. When we shall have succeeded in making an approximate census of All the populations we shall probably reach a figure considerably higher than the present estimate. Some authorities Accord to Africa not More than 100,000,-000 of inhabitants others still less. German geographers suppose thai Africa contains somewhat More than 200, too of inhabitants the latest English publications estimate the population at i he too too which for an area of 11,500,000 Square Miles gives a average of sixteen inhabitants per Square mile or a specific population eleven and one half times less than that of France. Africa which has fifty seven times the area of France has probably scarcely More than eight time the population. The suppression of the shave Trade and the influence of european civilization May Lead to an increase of population very rapid and very great. It should be observed that the apr oxidative figure of the specific pop ablation applied to the whole of the african continent will not give a just idea of the compact character of the populations of the Interior. According to Behna the negro regions Are by far the most populous parts of the continent. If the populations Are sparse in the desert parts they Are very dense in other regions. Thus in the Soudan the population is estimated at 80,000,060, or a Xiii 53 pier Square mile the town of Bida on the niger Las a population of 80,chm inhabitants. The population of East Africa is estimated at about 30,000,00 and that of equatorial Africa at 40,000.-000. One of the latest authorities divides the population of Africa As follows among the great families into which ethnologist have divided the people negroes 130,000,000 Hun re 20.000.000 Bantu 13,q�0,i 00 in alans 8.000.100 nubian l,5ik too Hottentots 50,. This would give a total popular Ion of 172.55 too. These figures Are of course Only approximate. And May be much modified by new an i More precise information. The Bantu for example who according to f. M. Muller form at least c be Quarter of the population of Africa might be found to number 60,000,000. These data we take from a paper by m. A. Riband in the bulletin of the Marseilles geographical society. Mixed relationship.
