The "marcblng flame" of the aurora
borealls, that brings occasionally to New
England nights the glories of the arctic
zone, Is a thing of which minor mani
festations are common enough, while
many of our readers have had the good
fortune to see it some few times when
ttfe ghostly brilliance of the flickering
white, green and crimson spears has
swept gloriously across the entire sky,
like an army of slain warriors passing
to Valhalla. No wonder that the spec
tacle Impressed the ' early colonists
with terror and amazement.
Accustomed to the duller, softer skies
of Old England, never so superbly in
vaded, tbey could scarcely have been
more surprised had a second moon sail
ed out into the ether beside the one
they knew. Here Is the quaint record
of the first flue aurora seen In the old
town of Newbury, recorded by Stephen
Jaques, in 1719:
"December 11th, Between seven and
eight o'clock at night ye moone being
ueare ye full, It might want two days,
there appeared in ye north above like
a rainbow, but it was white. It seem
ed to reach from norwest to northeast,
and It was more strait in ye middle
than a rainbow. It seemed to be eight
foot wide. It looked like a cloud.
There appeared In ye north clouds
which looked very red and seemed to
tile up allmost overhead as If they had
been driven with a farse wind, and
then parted to ye east and so vanished
away. Ye white cloud or bow remain
ed an hour or two. Between ten and
eleven there appeared a cloud, which
came from ye norweet Hke a mist. We
could see ye stars through It. It was
as red as blood or crimson, but not a
thick red. My eles saw it."
Ills eyes, too, saw exceedingly well;
for the brief description, curious In
manner jind full of awe and wonder as
It Is, is yet clear, careful and character:

lights as we of to-day behold them,
with science to explain what they are
and no dread lest they may le super

crops, Indian wars or Quaker heresies.

Slopping a Great Ship.
The motion of a steamship on the At
lantic, when the sea is calm, Is so
smooth and steady that the passenger
hardly realizes the tremendous momen
tum of the vesuel under his feet. A col
lision, even after the engines have been
slowed down, gives a startling revela
tion of the energy of motion. This ener
gy can also be accurately calculated
with the aid of mathematical formulas,
and the time and distance within which
the motion can be totally arrested, and
the ship be brought to a stand, may be
ascertained In a similar manner. This
calculation has recently been made for
several well-known ships. To stop the
Etrurla, whose "displacement" Is 9,680
tons, horse-powerl4,321,and speed 20.18
knots an hour, two minutes and forty
seven seconds are required, and during
the process of stopping the ship will
forge ahead 2,464 feet, which is only
176 feet less than half a mile. The Uni
ted States cruiser Columbia, with a
displacement of 7,350 tons, 17,991 horse
power, and a speed of 22.8 knots, can
be stopped in two minutes and fifteen
seconds, and within a space of 2,147
feet The little flyer Cushing, also of
the United States navy, whose displace
ment Is only 105 tons, and horse-power
1,754, while Its speed Is 22.48 knots, can
be stopped within a distance of SOI feet
in 18.4 seconds. In each case the vessel
Is supposed to be oing at full speed,
and the stoppage Is produced by re
versing the action of the propelling ma
chinery. A Centenarian's Death.
Mrs. Hannah Ixvett died at Nashua,
N. II., recently at the age of 1(KJ years.
.She was born In County Kerry, Ire
land, and her age was authenticated.
All of her ten brothers and sisters lived
more than ninety years, and one broth

years ago at the age of 106 years.

Devotion ia the first child of Faith.
SOME politicians readily agree
with ex-Senator Hill of New York
that a man In public life Is hin
dered rather than helped by being mar
ried. It Is noticeable, though, that most
men who entertain this view are, like
Mr. Hill, continued bachelors. It may
be that Mr. Hill has demonstrated by
his own experience and to his own sat
isfaction that celibacy and the ignoring
of social life are conditions of political
success, but if the distinguished gen
tleman will stop to look over the mem
bers of that august body of which he
was so lately a member, or Hie mem
bers of Congress or the list of success
ful statesmen and politicians In any
one of the States, he will discover that
the overwhelming majority of them are
men who have willingly become Cu
Perhaps no better Illustration can be
given of how valuable to a politician a
wife may be than was furnished by the
late Senator Logan, who many a time
and often expressed absolute coutideuce
in his wife's Judgment, never failing
to act In accordance therewith.
Gladstone, who Is admitted to be one
of the' greatest of English politicians,
has paid worthy tribute to the services
of his devoted and thoughtful wife,
who tas striven so faithfully to pro
mote his success in the Held of politics,
and there are not a few other English
men In politics who find efficient politi
cal helpmeets and shrewd campaign
managers In their wives. Turning to
this country, we find America's politi
cal history replete with Instances of
the successful participation of wives in
the political life of their husbands, and
the great majority of our statesmen
have paid considerable attention to so
David B. Hill may find his life of
celibacy "one grand sweet song," but
the great majority of men would tire of
their solo singing after a time. Be this
as It may. most American youths will

not good that man should lie alone, and

Pretty Wedding Custom.
One of the pretty features of the mid

the standard cough remedy of the past half
century,-Ay er's Cherry Pectoral. But some

of stubborn people, who persist in gambling,
