POSSESSIONS OF THE UNITED STATES
England and Russia now about to '
close in a desperate struggle for cen
tral Asian supremacy are credited
witli being respectively the first and
second nations of the world in point
of area, and tho second and third In ;
the matter of population. The teem-1
ing Chinese empire is estimated to
exceed either in the numbers of its J
people. Next come the republic ot '
France and its dependencies in point

in area. Much has been said of the
British empire, on which tho sun
never sets, and the Eussian empire,
which spreads over an eighth portion
of the globe. Thousands upon thou
sands of square miles of territory
dominated by tho lion and bear are
entirely uninhabitable, including as
they do most of the north polar re
gions of both hemispheres and arid
deserts and steppes in other climes.
The United States is nearly tho equal
of either empire in the extent of hab
itable area over which the spaugled
banner floats. And she, too, has
great, almost limitless, areas of ice
covered continents and islands which
are never counted as part of her
landed possessions, and yet which
she may quite as justly be credited
with as Russia or Euglaud, with cer
tain of their uninhabitable posses
sions in frozen zones. Few geogra
phies show on their maps these for
eign possessions of the United States,
and a brief reference to them is likely
to surprise the citizen who has
been accustomed to contemplate- the
possessions ot the American Union
as hedged in by the bounds of hor
slates and territories. But she can
really make quite an array ot foreign
possessions, which are hers by the
divine right of discovery, which has
given to most of the powers of tho
earth their foreign dependencies.
The voyages of Kane and subsequent
American explorers thus gave the
United btates the whole northwest
ern portion of Greenland as far as
discovered, and Griunell Land on tho
opposite shore of Smith sound. Tho
famous statisticians, Belrm and Wag
ner, give the area of the Greenland
stretch of ice and glacier, known as
Lincoln and Grant lands (fromseven-
ty-eigut degrees to eiguty-turec de
grees) as 192,700 kilomoters, and of
Grinnell Land at 5,050. Wrangel
Land has C5,100 kilometers. There
are no estimates even of the area of
the various islands north ot Siheria
discovered by the Jeaniulie, audit
is doubtful it they do not belong to
the New Siberian group, classed for
many years as belonging to Russia.
Tha great American exploring ex
pedition of 1810 discovered most of
the vast ice-hedged coast of the Ant
arctic continent, which has been
roughly estimated to extend over
2,000,000 square miles. Some of the
lands discovered by Commodore
"Wilkes have thus been estimated, the
figures being in kilemeters: Gra
ham's land, 100,000; Alexandra, 30,000.
Wilkes, 1G5.000; Enderby. 28,000.
The following islands and groups
in Polynesia belong to the United
States: Barber, Palmyra, Prospect,
Fanning, Christmas, Starbuck, Peu
ryhyn, Swan, Pitt, McKean, Hull, and
Enderby. The United States also
owns tho bay of Page Page in the
There are no obtainable statistics
of any of these "foreign possessions,"
and tho ordinary American citizen is
quite content to think of the union
as embracing only the sweep of land
from ocean to ocean and lakes to
gulf, not oven counting in frozen
Alaska and the girdle of Aleutian
islands that span tho Pacific ocean.
If other countries were not granted
by geographers their equally 4,im
portant" possessions, popular knowl
edge of respective areas would be
A FiNh Story.
Jim Johnson and Tom Pilcher, of
Union Point, went fishing n few days
ago, but in a short timo their bait
gavo out and they had caught no fish.
They scuffled around and found a
large black bug and hitched him by
the gable end to their hook. They
then sat down, both holding to the
pole, and patiently waited to catch a
whale, but got no bite, i nally they
concluded to examine their bait. To
their astonishment the bug was much
larger than when they put him on
the hook, so they cut him open and
found that he had been fishing him
self, and had caught and swallowed
half a dozen minnows. The young
men looked at each other in "silent

Like an old CresVy Window Shutter.
That is the way a man's rheumatic
joints sometimes are. Hinges old,
rusty, and worn, and badly need oil
ing. The trouble is in the blood. A
man who ij ot any account is worth
repairing. The repairing can bo done
by means of Brown's Iron Bitters.
That enriches and purifies the blood,

to it from happy experience. Mr. C.

St. Louis, says, "I used Brown's Iron
Bitters for rheumatism, general de
bility and prostration, with best results."
FRUIT EATERS NEED NO DOCTORS.
"We were struck recently by the re
marks of a doctor friend of ours, who
said no one thing will do so much to
make people independent of the med
ical profession as the daily free use
of frail. He had noticed that those
farmers in whose families fruit was
regularly and largely consumed
seldom "needed his services. "We
thought what a pity thai every farmer)

these truths. It is a deplorable fact
that farmers' families do not enjoy
that robust health that country air
and out-door life with plenty of exer
cise, should give. It is also a fact
that living on farms whose rich acres
are aching to produce abundant crops
of the varied fruits, but very few have
plenty, and many never have any
fruit, except it may bo an occasional
apple. The standard food in ma
jority of farmers' houses con

aud meat (mostly pork) fried!
in grease, and where pastry or cakel
13 used it has lard in large propor
tion in its composition; and. this food
is eaten at least twice, and in many
families, three times a day, year in
nnd year out. Is it any wonder that
they" are not more healthy, and that
the prevailing diseases are such as J
indicate an over-consumption of!
greasy food? If frnts were expen
sive or diflicnlt to raise, there would
be some excuse; but there is no part
of the country without plenty of va
rieties adapted to its soil and climate,
and just such as arc fitted by nature
to both nourish aud cleanse tho body,
and no more skill is required to grow
them than to grow corn or wheat.
Why is it that so few farmers make
anyattempt to provide an adequato
supply of what would add much to
their "pleasure, and save many times
its cost in doctors' bills, to say noth
ing of tho sufferings and loss of their
dear ones. AVe entreat you, decide
just now not to let the spring pass
without planting a fruit yard. Surely
it is better to grow frnit than to be
continually dosiug with medicine.
"Washington, May tk A gentleman
lately from Cuba and familiar with
tho situation says the question of an
nexation to the United States has for
mouths-been openly discussed, aud is
becoming popular in quarters where
it was formerly not tolerated. The
revenues of the island fall below the
expenses of tho government, nnd
Spaiu has to supply the deficiency.
Relief was hoped for from the pro
posed reciprocity treaty, and its fail
ure had utterly discouraged the
planters, and ' btfsincs3 of all kinds
was falling off. The most significant
fact abont tho annexation talk
was its presenco among tho Spanish
families, who havo no hope for tho
islaud in case tho present relations
are maintained. The home govern
ment is known to feel that the island
is a heavy load, which probably can
never become lighter. This general sit
uation has been fully reported to the
state department, and is well under
stood about some of the legations
A parallel case to "'Imperious Caj

The ashe3 of an Imperial Cajsar, Pico,
were lately employed for the lye of a
Roman woman's wash-tub upon the
discovery of the urn in which they
had reposed for eighteen centuries.
"They wero so whito and clean," ex
