According to the showing made, (here has been an upward tendency In the rate* until at present thi? class of labor Is probably belter paid than for many years. It is hardly practicable to inak- a comparison between British and American wages, since the systems of employing su-h labor in the two countries are dlfferMit. and for the further reason that there I* not atalluble any official American report covering tbe period ■ mbrat ed In the report of the Brit ish Hoard of Trade. Taking all such con.-tderatlon* as rent, lodging, etc.. Into u count and reducing the British wage lo a nearly the Ame ri al) standard as possible, It Is found that th'- uveraga wage of an agricultural la borer to (Ireat Britain Is approximately us follows: In England, per week; in it. IV; ncotland. ( :*:. atal iri Ire land. t2.Si Rlx counties In the kingdom show an average of over b per week, one of them. In Rutland, teaching a maxi mum of 15.43. The lowest average In Eng land. occurring In RufTolk. Is fl HP. while the lowest In Ireland In County Mayo. Is I.’ 14 l-'r-mi these figures It Is possible for persons In this country to make a falrlj at iii rule comparison of British agrlcul total wages and those paid In their own sections at least Ii Is expected that of ficial American figure* will lie available before a great While, when a broader and more accurate comparative vl.w of tin matter may lw taken. In Urcut Britain n In the United Slates, (arm wages are higher In the neighborhoods near the great Industrial, commercial and mining > < liters. One fact with respect lo agricultural labor seems to be common to Great Bri tain and the United State*, und that Is the Increasing scarcity of It. For some mo iths In all parts of this country then ha* been a complaint of lack of farm hand* and Inability to *eoure them In the Wheat fields of the West and the cotton fields of the Roulh the labor strin gency has made ttseir fell. Rlml ar reports come from Great Britain; and the reason Is no doubt the same In each Instance; the cities are drawing the population from Hie country. The ease ot Ellis H. Roberta. Treasurer of the United States, is attracting conskl eraids attention. Tbe case is summed up In a paragraph in o report made by a referee appointed by the New York Su preme t'ourl, atv I confirmed hy Judge Truax. as follows: "That between the said tith day of November. 1833. und the Ist day of January, 183 T. said defendant (KUis H Robert*), appropriated and con verted to hi* own use out of raid moneys of sakl plaintiff (Mt*.

The Argentine H* public ha reasons for think tng Chile has designs upon Argentine ter ritory. and that Is why Peru would have Argentine friendship. It Is Chile's love of Hind that Is the cause of the present strained relation*. The treaty of Ancon, which ended tb I’em-Chib* war of 1879, provided that the rich Peruvian prjsvin . * *.f T t na and Art* a should te ceded to Chile for ten year*, upon the expiration of which period It should be bft to n vote of the people of the provinces whether they would re main Chilean or revert to Peru, the gov ernment winning at the eh* tlon to pay to the other government an Indemnity of 510,000.000.

The increase of suicides is furnishing the ground work of M*mo very Inter flng theories as to the in.-cn of nelf-dcstru*'- tlon. among which Is to be found th#* qus firm recently propounded by Prof. Get iwtn Smith of Toronto. "I#* marriage the anti dote for the suicide habit?’* Prof. Smith attributes the Increase in the numtxr of suicide* to the higher clvilixa* lon. an I In exputmdlng that theory says "M itikind has grown mote restb-2 and with multi plied dewiret# and bight* m I aspiration have ionic new sources of dis'-ontet t Hensibllty ha?

Marriage no doubt is too often th** disillmtion of love. Ye| ti- Immen * majority of marriage* bring mots hap pi lies* than a lonely life." Commenting on Prof Smith’s iheorv several well-known New York women hold to the view that mu triage is a cor rection of tho suicide evil, since it sup plUa tin* "counter-irritant" to the loneli ness which loads to Introspection, and finally to morbid conditions in the ell bate. In a recent article in the Nineteenth Century, Reginald A Skelton, while . I milting that he can furnish no tory clue to the motive* which usually prompt suicide, believes education, wound ed vanity, a kinging for luxuries an l th. mod**rii tendency to eschew religion an* responsible for much of the trouble. Thus the theories art* advanced and the discus sion proceeds. In attributing the Increase In sUteldc* to advanced civilisation, how doe prof Smith account for the vast numt*er of such cases among the Chinese un i other Oriental races? A Chinaman wishes to pay off a grudge against an enerry, he commits suicide on his doorstep. This must evidently he attributed t* supersti tion and fanaticism. With regard to tho marriage theory', statistics no doubt bear out the truth of the assertion that the percentage of married men who kill them selves ts far less than that of But Is It not also true that the percent ‘e of well balanced men who get mnrUil is far greater than that among thase who remain single? If eo, that would furnish i r#*ason why there are fewer suicide* among m< n of families.
