Gold was Iho substance for which all the world hunyerod. and yet when Columbus discovered America thefo was less than $250,000,000 of It In all Ihuope. Surely it has been a dltllcult substance to llnd. Centuries had passed, during which this yellow tnelal had been carefully hoarded, and yet all of Em ope held less than a quarter of a billion of it. That was a matter of 415 years ago. When the great ex plorer set sail for unknown shores the world wns increasing its stock of gold at the rale of less than $4,000,000 an nually. It would therefore take Eu ropo CO years to duplicate its gold holdings. When another hundred years had passed the output had in creased to $0,000,000 annually.
