MAINTAINING THE GOLD SUPPLY Only Enough Being Mined Nowadays for Vie In the Arts. The two most eminent living writ? ers cn the precious metals, Suess and Soetbeer, have recently published what the New York Telegram calls a very alarming statement, lt is to the effect that the total amount of gold dug out of the earth annually suffices only to supply the present demand for that valuable substance for use in the arts. Not a blt of .the new product of the mines is availa? ble for coinage. Trinket uso and waste in manufacture exhaust the whole yield. If this is correct, then gold must vanish from circulation before long, because the output of the gold mines of the world is dimin? ishing rather than increasing, and there a:e few fields left to explore. But Uncle Sam's metallurgists say it ls not so. The writers quoted fail to consider the fact that the gold em? ployed in the arts ls utilized over and over again. It gees through a sort of cycle. Articles of jewelry often dis? appear, but ...

The Hippopotamus. Although the hippopotamus may be less loathsome than the crocodile, Slr 8. Baker writes that "the^o is no animal that he dislikes more than the hippopotamus, if he was com? pelled to travel at night upon an Af? rican river iu an ordinary boat." Even without this limitation the hip? popotamus seems remarkably danger? ous. Sir S. Baker tells how in broad daylight a hippopotamus charged the steamer that was towing his diah beeah, and perforated the iron plates of the vessel in two places with its projecting tusks, so that it made a dangerous leak. On another occa? sion, when the steamer passed over a hippopotamus that was walking (after the manner of the best) under water along the bed of the river, the steam? er of one hundred and eight tons giive a leap into thc air, as the water was too shallow to permit the hippo? potamus to pass beneath the keel. What became of the hippopotamus was not ascertained. On anjther occasion a bull hippo? potamus charged the diahbeeah i...

Nature's Laboratory. ? The cream of tartar tree belongs to the category of plants yielding ready mado products. They are members of the genus "Adansonia." The height of the tree is from fprty to seventy feet, while the top is over one hundred and eighty feet across. A Venetian who has left us the most ancient description of the tree, tells us that lu 1454 he found one at the mouth of the Senegal with a circum? ference of one hundred and twelve feet. The tree is very disproportion? ate, as may be gathered from the fact that Gregory?after whom the Aus? tralian species ia named?saw one eighty-five feet in circumference at a height of two feet from the ground. The acid ls found in the farinacious pulp i-rurrounding the seed, and has at all times been highly esteemed by travelers, who mix it with a little water in order to make a refreshing beverage. The bark of the tree con? tains a remarkably strong fiber which In some parts is made into ropes, in others woven into cloth. A bitter prin...
