THE USES OF MILLIONAIRES.
They Are the Busy Bees That Fill
the Hive with Honey.
The bees of a hlvo do not destroy the
honey-making bees, but tho drones. It
will be a great mistake for the com
munity to shoot the millionaires, for
they are the bees that muke tho most
honey, and contribute most to the hlvo
even after they have gorged themselves
full. Hero Is a remarkable fact, that
the masses of the people in any coun
try are prosperous nnd comfortable
just In proportion as there are million
aires. Take Russia, with Its popula
tion little better than eerfs, and living
at the point of starvation upon the
meanest possible fare, such fure as
none of our people coulfl or wouia eat,
and you do not find one millionaire In
Russia, always excepting the emperor
and a few nobles who own the land,
owing to their political system. It is
the samo to a groat extent In Germany,
There are only two millionaires known
to mo In the whole German Empire. In
France, where ,the people are better oft
than in Germany, you cannot count
one-half dozen millionaires In the whole
country. In the old homo of our nice,
in Britain, which Is tho richest country
In all Europe tho richest country la
tho world savo one, our own there nre
more millionaires than In tho whole of
tho rest of Kuiope, and its people are
better oft' than In any other. Yau come
to our own land; wo have more mill
ionaires than In all the rest of the world
put, together, although wo havo not one
In every ten that Is reputed so. I have
seen a list of supposed millionaires pre
pined by u well-known lawyer of
nrooklyn, which nuide me laugh, as It
has made many others, I saw men

not pay their debts. Many should have
