Calcutta, Aug. 27.���In India a census has recently hem taken, in which
800,000,000 people were counted In
live houi'B, und (be following article
in the National Geographic Magaz.ne,
by J..J. Hannlga snows how lt was
To count SOO million people In five
hours is a task worthy of any government; yel it wus done, and done well,
by the government of India, Maicb
lu, 1911. Prom Cape Ccmo In on the
Houih to the rugged li lis and valleys
of the Himalayas on tbe north, and
from lhe mountains and deltas of Bur-
iiiu to the slopes of the western
ghats, every man, woman and child
wiih carefully counted and tabulated
by an army of more than two m.l-
lion enumerators.
Divided Into Blooks.
The country was divided lr.to more
Hum two million "blocks" and an
enumerator was appointed for every
block, Groups of blocks were called
circles, and several circles made a
'charge." A block contained not less
than twenty-five houses nor more
than flfty. Some weeks before the
actual date of the census every house
was numbered, and then the enumerator went around and made the preliminary census by making out a list
of the names of the pe sons ordinarily
residing in the houses of his block.
This list was carefully revised by the
supervisor of the circle, and hls lists
were all checked by the charge superintendent, so as to secure the greatest possible accuracy.
Elaborate provision was made for
all who might be travelog by train,
boat or cart on the night of the census. . Station masters, train guards
and others were enlisted so that no
one might escape. Thousands of Indians travel every night in the bul
'ock carta of the country, the common
mode of travel between the thousand;
of villages that have no railway service. The. heat of the day makes tbe
night the pleasantest time for traveling, so provision had to be made fo
those also; and toll gate keepers as
well as the keepers of caravansaries,
were appointed as enumerators to
count the noses of all passing thi ough
their gates or stopping at ther "pe'-
tabs," or inns.
All Start at Once.
At 7 o'clock the night of Match 10,
every enumerator started out to maks
the real count of the people in his
block. Going from house to house he
corrected the preliminary record, add-
and   strlklntt
ttn.-��    *.*,m    nrat.
i details aa CT>
���ex, marriage, profession, age, religion, language and other essentials
were recorded. In all, sixteen columns had to be filled in regarding
every individual. Some of the people
seemed to think it a jo:;e if they could
manage to have some of their house
escape the eye of the enumerate:.
Children had to be dragged frcm dark
corners and older persons from the
cattle sheds in order that the list
might be mad) complete. If anyone
escaped entiie'y he was the heio of
the day in his village in the next
Only preliminary results are in as
yet. But theie is enough to indicate
tlie growth that has taken place in t'ie
cities and in the country at largt:.
Most of thc cities show decide 1 gains,
some as high as 20 per cent; but, on
the other hand, a few show losses.
Bombay reports a loss of IM30 from
the number reported in the municipal
census of 1908, This is accounted for
by the removal of several.cotton mills
from tlte city. Calcutta reiorts again
of 109,000; Madras now has 517,335
inhabitants. Plague and fam'ne are
two of the factors that enter into thj
explanations for the losses in several
cities. As was to be expected fertile
districts have made larger gains than
others. Irrigation lias helped ,ev"r 1
districts to increase their population,
Madras presidency reports a total
gain of 8,1! per cent, as against 7.:i
per cent for the previous decade. As
in other countries, cities have gaini
far more than  rural, communities.

on being asked oi what he was proud-'

Lord Crewe is an ardent lover ol

father's grace of style in writing. He
is a keen sportsman, and when in the

The motive of the crime was not a
sordid lust for gold, but, according to
the version accepted by th? Jury, it
was the infatuation of Armand Peltzer for the fascinating wife of Bernays. The latter had given grave offence to his wife, who lived practically apart from him under the same
roof, but who, notwithstanding her
deep sympathy for Arnxan.l Peltzer,
was too pure a woman to~fe;|Ulre an

charms. She could at n moment's
notice change her mood from that of
the most Ught-heiirted gayety to one

state. Though her manner was always caressing, the weak points of
everybody she talked to were as clear
to her as noonday.
For over a year Stanislaus was
deeply In love with this witch. They
met generally at Oranlenbaum, near
the capital, where she lived with her
husband. Sometimes at a given signal, generally the mewing of a cat.
Catherine would come out dressed as
a man and join Stanislaus, who had
apartments in the neighborhood. They
invented an ingenliis code of signals I
for secret communication at the opera
or any other social function. Even
Catherine was amid of the empress, I
her aunt-in-law. Their secret was
well kept for a time, and the merest
accident revealed it. !
A Barking Spaniel. I
Once,  when   tho  grand  duke  was
away, Catherine was showing a small
party of friends, including Stanislaus
and  Count   Horn,   a   Swedish   nobleman, over her own and her consort's
'; private  apartments.    They   disturbed
a spaniel  in  Catherne's  private cabinet,   the    dog   barked    furiously   at
j Count   Horn   and   others,   but    went
: mad with Joy at the sight of Stanls-
; laus.    Horn guessed  what   lt  meant,
i and  though   he  promised   discretion,
t the  secret   reached  the ears   of  the
I grand duke.    He had Stanislaus kidnapped one night and frighten"d into
making a full confession.   This done
'��� the  future emperor  said:     "What  a
I fool  you  were not to take me   into
| your  confidence!"   He  then  dragged
his wife out of bed, made her an I a
: court lady to whom she was devoted
'. Join them, and all four played   mad
I pranks  until  4  o'clock in the  morning. I

Erected by Ptolemy to the Greal
Tower of the Eddyttone Rock Is a
Far Cry and Many Devices Have
Been Added to ths Mechanism-
Time Flashes.
The flrst lighthouse on record is said
to have been erected at Alexandria in
Egypt by Ptolemy I'hiladeiphus nearly
three centuries before the birth o>
Christ. It whs said to have been 5G0
feet high, while me light, consisting
In all probability of a coal or wood flre
in uu open heartti on the summit of
the tower, ia supposed to have been
visible 42 miles out t* sea.
In the United Kingdom, towards the
end of the fourteenth century, the
lighting of the coast was left in the
hands of various religious orders, who
established and kept up lights at their
own expense, and thus did their best
to warn mariners of tne dangers which
lurked cound about their monasteries
or dwelling!. The lights at this time
usually consisted oi a wood or coul
fire burnt in an open brazier situated
on a church tower, although we occasionally read of lights being exhibited in windows to guide, ships in from
seaward. The dissolution of the monasteries in the reign ot Henry VIII.,
doing away as it did with the men
who gratuitously tended, these coast
lights as a sacred duty, abolished the
lights also at one blow,, and it was not
until several years later that the first
of the regular coast lights were instituted.
At this Ume it was customary lor
private people to erect lighthouses at
their own expense, in return for which
they were allowed to levy a toll on all
passing vessels. The license to do this
was  granted   by   the   King,  but  the
Trinity House, a guild or fraternity ol
sailors  who. undertook: to' look  after
the  interests  of   all  those  connected
with shipping, had developed into a
rich snd powerful organisation, holding important charters which regulated the general management ot navigation.   '1 hey  regarded the' eteetieo ol
these private lighthouses aa a usurpation o: their Tights, fbr they were responsible for the buoyWge of the channels,  and alleged that tbey had the
sole right of erecting lighthouses. Trinity    House,    therefore,   opposed    alt
schemes 'for   the   building   of lighthouses* by   private   persons.    But  in
spito of this hostility, lighthouses were
erected at many points on the coast.
The light consisted of an open hearth
at the summit of the tower, while the
curious davit and pulley on the right-
hand  side  were  use  for hoisting  up
the  necssary  fuel.
Trinity House, in spite of the obvious utility of the lights, were bitterly
opposed to th? measure, and characterized the lighthouses as "use/ess."
"dangerous," and'a- "burthen and hit*.
drunce to navigation," and ft was not
until about a century later that the
but. on the other band, helped thei
sailor to demand that ior the dues he
paid the private lighthouse owner
should show a good and steady light.
They also set about improving the
various schemes for illumination, bat
it was not until 1838 that privately-
owned lights -were abolished and the
entire system passed into the hands of
Trinity House.
As I have said above, the principal
illuminants used in ancient lighthouses were coal or wood fires in an
open hearth, but towards the end of
the 17th century it occurred to some
people to enclose the fire in a lantern
with a funnel or chimney at thf top.
This saved the fuel, but the efficfency
of the lights suffered, for it was no
longer fanned by the sea breeses, and
needed the frequent use of tlie bellow..
to keep it alight. There wer? many
complaints about, the poorness of the
lights, and the lanterns were subsequently removed, but coal or wt k!
fires remained  in  use till 1822.
It wns towards the middle of the
eighteenth century that schemes for
distinguishing one light from another
were introduced, and the first device
of this kind was invented, stie.nge as
it may seem, by a barber of Lynn
called Robert Hamblin. The raethed
by which lights are varied nowadays
consists of hiding the light shown for
a certain number of seconds. Thus
one lighthouse may show a single flash
every fifteen seconds, another, three
flash 's in quick succession every thirty seconds, and yet another may show
a light for thirty seconds, and then
be obscured for 10 seconds, and so on.
These methods', combined with the
employment of white, red, and green
lights provided ninny different varie-
ties of lights, and thus form a ready
means of distinguishing one from the
other, as no two lights on the British
ooast are exactly the same.
The present Bell Rock Lighthouse
is situated off Arbroath, nnd this is
the place, it will be remembered, that
has been immortalized in the poem of
"Sir Ralph the Rover," where���
"The good old Abbot of Aberbrothcck
Had placed that bell on the Inchcape
On a buoy, in the storas, it floated and
And over the waves its warning rung."
The first time a lighthouse was erected on an isolated rock was in the case
ol the first Eddystone Lighthouse completed by Winstanley in 1698, where
tallow candles were used as an ilium-
inant. The tower was polygonal in
form, while the useless ornamentation
above offered great resistance to the
wind. This lighthouse, however, atood
till 1703, when it was knocked down by
the sea, and Winstanley himself and
all the occupants perished. The next
Eddystone was completed in 1708 by
Rudyerd, and this was completely destroyed by flre in December. 1755. It
had been constructed of wood, and
the next tow��#, of granite, was erected
by John Smeaton and stood from 1758
to 1831.
