ferent, a much better world, because
justice would prevail. Much of our
charity is really pure sin, and that
part of charity which is offered as
restitution, a substitute for justice, is
the most degrading of sins, in that it
corrupts both giver and receiver. Can
you imagine a condition with all kinds
of cripples "making good," all sorts
of outcasts making a crood showine
and gaining a self-respect and
strength of character? This would
simply mean the giving of opportunity
to the unfortunates instead of crowd
ing them away from it. We know
that, with very few exceptions, com
paratively, all cripples and all those
who have tasted criminal life are
willing to work, but we deny them
opportunity and then, through one
process or another, support them
ourselves by our own labors. The
plan is debasing and fooliah. Un

NO FULL MOON IN THE
MONTH OF FEBRUARY FOR
FIRST TIME IN 68 YEARS
For the first time in sixty-eight
years a month will elapse without the
moon rounding into a full circle. Dur
ing the entire month of February the
moon will not be full at any time.
Prof. G. D. Sweezey of the university
department of astronomy says that
the phenomenon is comparatively rare.
For nearly 1 three-quarters of a cen
tury every month has had at least one
full moon. The fact that one month
can escape the full moon is due to the
fact that the full moons follow one
another at intervals of approximately
twenty-nine and a half days. The
intervals are irregular because the
calendar was based on the solar in
stead of the lunar system. February
breaks the sixty-eight-year-long rec
ord by a very narrow margin. The
last full moon came at 10:41 p. m. on
January 20 and the next one will come
on March 1 at 12:33 p. m. The last
time that a month passed Avithout a
full moon in America was in 1847. The
fact that February contains so few
days is the only thing that enables it
to get by. There were two full moons
last month and there will be two dur
ing March. After' that each month
will have one full moon for some
