Tourists’ Glold 1: Ital Italy.
At the British embassy to the kiag of
Italy a calculation was piade some time
ago of the amount of gold brought by
travelers into Italy every year. By far
the largest number of these travelers
come from England mud thy United
States, The calculations made it evident
that no less than £20,00),000, or $100,-
000,000, are brought ixto this country
and left here by these travelers In the
scantiest years that sua has not been
less than £14,000,000. while on other
occasions it has risen 4o0°£22,000 000.
