AMERICAN MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894
AMERICAS' illl/LIONAIEES. A ?wbheh in OJiamlers's Journal has been interesting himself in examining the United States statistics respecting the wealthy men of the Grea,t Eepublie. America is the home of. big things generally, and these statistics show that it is eminently the home of big fortunes. The figures cited are almost oppressive in their magnitude.

One happy bein# of the seventy is reported to be worth £30,000,000 ; fi?e meu haveeach £20,000,000.

A knot of thirteen have each .£6,000,000, and fifteen are each posBeseed of £4,000,000. It will be seen that fifty-nine of the seventy are here accounted for. These stand in the first rank of golden men; but there is a cecond batch of fifty almost as wealthy. T...

If the sun had been made of solid coal from centre to surface, and if that coal had been burned for the purpose of sustaining the radiation, it can bo demonstrated that a few thousand years of solar expenditure at the present rate would suffice to exhaust all the heat which the combustion of that great sphere of fuel could generate. — SU' Robert Ball.
