add 15,000,000 to the country's inhab
itants, and bring tho total up to the
65,000,000 mark. It is probable that
the average reader fails to grasp the
entire dimensions and significance of
this tremendous expansion in popula
tion. The number of new residents
which the country has gained since
1880 is almost as great as that of the
entire population of Spain, as great as
that of Mexico and Canada together,
or as Belgium, the Netherlands and
Portugal combined. The additions to
our inhabitants in the past ten years
exceed five-fold the aggregate popu
lation of the thirteen colonies at the
time of their separation from Great
Britain. In the period named a new
nation, so to speak, largely surpassing
in number that of any entire civilized
country, except Bussia, Germany,
Austro-Huugary, Prance, Great Brit
ain and Italy, has arisen among us.

A young wife stood nt a lnttfco pnno
In a study sad and brown,
Wactbing tho dreary, ceaseless rain,
Steadily ponring down
Drip, drip, drip,
It kopt on its tireless spray;
And the poor little woman sighed "Ah nie!
What a wretched, weary day!"

A step as of ono in haste,
A kiss upon her lips onco more,
An arm around her waist;
Throb, throb, throb,
Went hor littlo heart, grateful and gay,
As sho thought wit li a Pmile, "Well, after
It isn't so dull a day! all,

And the lowering skyes above,
For the somber room was lighted again
By the blessed sun of leve:
Love, lovo, love!

"Without it may threaten and frown if
Within, what a glorious day!"
