HOW THE EARTH MOVES.
rrnfrMiir Henrte Talk nt WaalilitBtan on
II .sphrrlty Hiu) Motion.
Tlio second lecture of tho public astronoml
caI course by Professor George M. Bos-rlo nt
tlio Cntliollc university on Friday nfternoons
wns on tlio subjectof tlio spberity ntuf motion
of tliti enrth Tlio lecturer naked Ills henrcrs
to Imagine themselves on tlio deck of nil ocemi
steamer liounil for tlio tropics. An darkness
comes on "wo begin to study tlio constellations
thnt somo friend nt our elbow Is ready to
point out to us," ho Mid. "Wo notlco some
star tw inkling near tlio horUon, Just innklng
its dully circlo nround tlio mimovliig polo star
above, ono of tlio seven sturs of tlio Dipper.
Lot us noto carefully tlio relation of thnt star
to tlio horizon mid to tlio stars of t ho surround
ing heavens. Wo hnvo only to tnke out our
watch nod nmko n noto of the time, nud our
astronomical work may lio Inld nsido for tlio
ovotiing. To-morrow night let us conio out
on deck nt tlio snnio time nnd look nt tlio star
In its relation to tlio polo star nud horizon as
boforo. Hut tlio Dipper thnt was yesterday on
tlio sen lino has nluiOHt dlsuptxmrcd liolow the
lino. Int night tlio wnko of tho ship was
pointed toward yonder star, nnd now tt is a
good denl nltovo it, nlthough our direction
has not changed. Wo lire still going south,
but south now Is not tho snmo as south then.
Now s Urn hnvo arisen on tho horiron ns others
hnvo descended into tho sea.
"At last wo roach tho equator, nnd wo find
tho x)lo star itself has sunk down to tho ho
rizon. Wo soo no iwlo star In tho south, but,
as our studios on a previous occasion hnvo led
us to expect, thoro is n spot, unmarked by
any especially brilliant orb, nround which
tho stars of tho southern heavens circlo.
Thcro is no explanation for this, except that
wo nro not traveling ovor n lovel surface but
ovor a curved ono. If wo compare tho sec
tions of sky thnt appear in tho south or dis
appear In the north with tho number of miles
passed over by our ship's log wo shall find
that thoy hnvo always lioen in proportion.
Wo hnvo then Ikxmi sailing or stenmlm; over
a great circular aro instead of n straight line,
as it appeared to bo."
Thcro nro other proofs than those of tho
circular chnrnctor of tho earth, tho lecturer
said. Wo have only to look out to son when
a ship Is leaving port, it is now just on the
horizon, mid presently only tho most nro
vislblonnd the hull is seemingly under water.
Something has Intervened between tho vessol
and tho eye. What can this Iks hut tho curved
surface of tho ocean?
A grander and more direct proof than any,
if wo could only realize it, is that which wo
get in ecllpsos of tho moon. Boforo an ecllpRo
becomes total watchers will seo n curved lino
which marks the udgo of tho shadow thrown
by tho earth upon tho lunar surface, and all
know that an object which always cusUi a
regularly and uniformly curved shadow must
bo a sphere.
Tlio llrst illustration, though not ho striking
as somo others, is the bout, for it show not
only that the earth is round, but ulso just
what the amount of its curvature is. Hence
it is found out what Its size is as well us its
shape. Ono day's voyage on tho southwurd
bound summer brings tho star which was
soon tho night lioforo just apiicaring abovo
the southern horizon n good distance alwvo
tho water's edge. "Huw many such lifts
would bo required to bring It up to the zenith
right over our heads Suppose wo thought
that fifteen would lj needed. If then we
could keep on for in days it would be in the
zenith, In CO dots it would bo there behind
us; In -IMt won: I bo down below the hori
zon, directly urnler our feet, nnd in IK) days
it would bo in 1. 11' sumo plnco again wlmio it
Is at present. In ot'ier words, we would in
CO days hnvo returned to just w here wo aro
now. Our lojr tells us wo have traveled 400
tnlles each day, and GO times that would bo
24,000 miles. This, then, is tho circumfer
ence of tho globe,"
Thcro is still, tho lecturer said, a more ac
curate method than that which ho described.
By making observations with dolicato Instru
ments upon tho land, instead of with the log,
which is so inaccurate, it has been possible to
tnoasuro accurately tlio arc of tho moildlan,
and tho trno circumfcrcnco of tho earth has
thus been ascertained.
Tho lecturer referred to tho peculiarities of
tho earth's shape and its flattening iu tho re
gion of tho poles, and thou proceeded to givo
tho scientific demonstration of tho fact that
tho npparent motion of tlio heavens Is really
caused by tho motion of tho earth irtelf. Ex
periments show a diminution In tho weight
of objects as wo approach the equator, which
shows that tho equator U really in motion.
A portion of this diminution, howover, can
bo accounted for by tho slight dilfercnco In
tho rotundity of tho earth at tho equator and
toward the poles; and to Infer from it tho
earth's motion it is necessary to nssumo the
nearly uniform density of tho globo. Wash
Tlio Morphine Mania.
War has for somo timo been declared by
French medical men or by somo of them
against morphine, which, when injectod un
der tho skin, as It apjiears to bo in many
classes of Parisian socioty, recklessly and ha
bitually, merely to procuro temjiorary pleas
urable sensations and not for tho relief of
pain, leads infallibly to death or the mad
house. Tho International Medical congress ha
now taken up tho matter and has been con
sidering ways and means for checking the
evil. Tho morphlno mania is thought to bo
evldontly much on tho increase in Franco.
Not alono, by any means, aro tho ravagos
occasional by the ahuso of tho narcotic con
fined to tho higher class of society, for mod
leal men hnvo come forward at tho congress
to state that the habit has a firm hold on tho
working classes, nnd that women of this con
dition of life will duprivo their children of
food or clothing In their craving after tho
To Cure Scowling,
Tho habit of scowling when reading, writ
ing, thinking or talking earnestly is easily
and unconsciously formed, and it is a habit
almost iuiKX-siblo to correct. Even in sleep
tho brows will bo drawn together uud tho lit
tle lines that ngo tho otherwise jouthful face
will grow decjer, A smooth, vito brow is
ono of tho greatest attractions of a woman's
faco, w hlle a promnturoly wrinkled brow mars
til's youth of the fairest face. A studious
you ii'.; lady found herself tho victim of this
scowl, but iilo devised a means of curing her
self of the habit. When nt her studies ho fast
ened a ribbon baud tightly across her brow,
tying it in u knot nt tho buck of her head,
and at night shot-lent In the baud. After
several mouths the llttlo hnir hues dbap

KiirIIsIi Honso of Iron.
Portable houses of Iron nro now lolng
manufactured iu England. Thoy are mado
of thin shouts of corrugated Iron, put to
gether like n chilli's puzzle, and can bo takon
np.irt, compactly ackod and removed else
where. Air spaces lietweeu tho outer Iron
walls and Inner walls of felt and plno wixxl
aid iu keeping tho houses cool iu summer and
warm iu winter. Tills now feature in build
ing will, it is claimed, make It easy to add a
room to tho ordinary brick dwelling houso
where such accommodation is needed. Being
removable, it Is tlio property of tho tenant,
so that tlio objection felt by most peoplo
against building for the ultimata bouollt of
one's landlord does not hold good in such a
caso. Stabling and coach houses can in tho
same way Ikj temporarily erected. As a play
room or school room for children a detached
iron building communicating with tho houso
by a covered way would frequently provo a
boon to tho brain working father of tho fam
ily; and iu times of illness It would bo os
slblo, by tills means, to Isolate a patient com
pletely from tho other members of tho fam
ily. As theso iron houses aro not particularly
pretty, ait English paper suggests thatching
tlio roof with heather and covering tho walls
with trellis work.
An Umbrella Holder.
A lady has comu to tlio help of her sister
women, and has invented a practical pedes
trian umbrella holder. Most of us are trou
bled iu the course of tho winter how to hold
cardcaso, umbrella, muff and other Impedi
ments comfortably. This simple llttlo Inven
tion leaves tho hands froo. It consists of a
sheath a few inches deep, attachod to a stool
or nickel chain with spring hooks. Tho um
brella is dropped Into tho sheath, the top of
which reaches the button ami clastic usually
carried round tho cover, tho safety chain is
then luussed round tho handle and hooked into
tho main chain, which has a chatolaino hook
to fasten to tlio waist If placod sufficiently
far back it will not swing, und when iu
wearer Is seated it rests at her sido. When
the umbrella is used, tho chain is attachod to
tlio waist ns before, and tho sheath will be
just tho right longtlt to slip into tho pocket.
The Taste In Colors,
A tasto has set in for bright and dolicato
colors. Iu greens wo have absinthe, tho soft,
old fashioned shodo, with a new name; euca
lytus green, frosh and tender; moss and pale
reseda; light responsive eau do Nil, and mys
terious water greens. Tlio gamut of pink
runs through every shade of roso, from the
tint known ns "old pink," which Is but an
other name for tho "crushod strawberry" of
a year or two ago, through tho sweetness of
tho moss rose pink, culminating In the crim
ion richness found In certain slindos of chrys
anthemums, then fading away into the yel
low tone of dead roso leaves. Grays aro also
fashionable. Tho neutral tint helps wonder
fully to givo effect to tho brighter colors.
