Many readers may not be aware of
the fact that the full moou gives sev
eral times more than twice the light
of the half moon. They may be still
more surprised to learn that the r.itio
is approximately as nine to one. Pro
fessor Joel Stebbins and F. C. llr.nvn ,
taking'aavantage of the extreme sensi
tiveness to light of a seciiiii ! cell ,
meayurod the amount of light coming
from the moon at differe-if p'.rises wi.h
Ihe result above mentioned. The re i-
son for the remarkable diiTcn-uce
shown is to be found in the varying
angles of re.'iection presented by the.
roughened surface of our satellite to
the sun. The moon brighter between
first quarter and full than beUvevii
full and last quaiter. The cause of
this is evident in the more highly re
flective character of that part of the
moon which lies Avest of its meridian.

Put Infant In Room Alone Until

true that if a mother does not con
quer her child when it is young she
will have a most dillicult time before
many mouths are past.
Da by is apparently bom with the in
stinct of getting what he wants !
crying. As a matter of fact , his little
br.riu soon grasps the knowledge that
screaming brings the thing which he
desires or something else equally nice ,
and therefore he shouts lustily. .Most
mothers worry when their little ones
screw their faces Into paroxysms and
regard the matter as serious and to be
checked at once. So it is. but not b.v
the method usually adopted.
When a healthy baby cries he is ei
ther uncomfortable for some physical
reason or else he is displaying temper.
If his cries do not j'ield to ordinary
measures if is necessary to find out
what causes the tears , and to accom
plish this he should be subjected to
the closest scrutiny to make sure that
his clothes are not hurting and that he
is not in pain. If neither of these
reasons for weeping exists , then tem
per io making the trouble , and the
sooner he learns to control it the bet
ter for all concerned.
The manner of doing this depends eu-
tirel- upon individual temperament , so
that to lay down any rules is impossi
ble. Sometimes when a. child Is nat
urally gentle and yielding he will stop
crying ia a few moments if he is en
tirely ignored. When the shrieks and
roars are ear splitting , baby should be
put into a vacant room , made quite
safe and comfortable and then left en
tirely alone. For a time he will usu-il-
ly scream hard , but after a bit the cries
will subside. Not infrequently he will
go to sleep. If he does not and be
comes quiet he should be brought back
Immediately to his accustomed place.
If this rule of banishment Is followed
every time there are unnecessary tears
It is astonishing In how short a time
an infant will discover that crying does
him no good.

The Wcmsn Who Never Grows Old.
Keeping youthful doesn't mean pre
tending one is twenty-five when one
has passed forty , but it does mean re
taining that brightness and freshness
which are the < harm of youth and
which every one realizes are the most
delightful things in the world.
Every one has her youth , and it is
absolutely unnecessary to permit that
youth , j-o far a" feelings are concerned ,
lo slip away. There is no reason for
it. If big troubles come it may sober
spirits for a time , but this youthfui-
ness is such a great thing that the con
stant endeavor should be to gather it
up again , just as one would a cloak

Paper the room with white and blue
striped paper and omit a border effect.
Put blue and white matting on the
floor and hang white dotted swiss cur

iron bed in white and blue organdie
and make chair pillows of the same
material. Frame pictures in passe

as the wall paper. This will make a

At night wash the forehead in hot
