SCIENCE AND THE POLES
Movement of the Earth and Effect
at the Axil.
HOW ASTRONOMERS GET RESULTS
Artaal Occupation of the Poles r
Observatories Woald astir I"
rreaae the Sum of Unman
'"The actual occupation of the poles would
add enormously to the advancement of
science," Is the contention of Rev. William
Fi Ulgge, 8. J., director of the Crelghton
unlveralty observatory. In the Initial num
ber of the Oral gh ton Chronicle, the dla
tlnuulHlied astronomer condenses a vat
HUiount of Information concerning the
4 tarth'a movements.- the difference at the
pules and the equator, and the needed light
Hclenc would gain from prolmiKed observa
tions at the errth'a -axis. The paer fol
lows: " '.
The polca of the earth are. In the math-
etnatHal aa well an In the ordinary sense
of the word, clngular points, that la to
say. they poeseti many eentlal features
which do not apply In sny way to other
points on the earth's surface.
By definition the poles are the extremi
ties of the earth's axi. The earth, as we
nlng ball la then said to rotate, or turn
about an axis, every point In It and on It,
except those on the axis Itself, moving In
a true circle of Its own. The center of
each of the circles Is on the axis of revo
lution at the foot of the perpendicular
dropped to It from the given point The
points farthest away from the axis are said
to He on the equator; they form the cir
cumference of a circle obtained by rutting
the sphere by a plane through Its center at
right angles to Its axis.
It la evident that all the points in and
on the earthly sphere must move together
In such a way that their relative positions
are not changed nor the sphere distorted.
Hence, while they all have the same angu
lar speed about the axis, that Is, they all
run the circuit of their own circles in the
same time, their linear speed, their miles
per hour, must depend upon their dixt&nce
from the axis. Thus at the equator every
point moves about 24.000 miles In twenty
four hours, thnt Is. about a thousand miles
an hour. Omaha is about 6.000 miles from
the earth's axls.and rotates therefore at
the rate of about 7oO miles an hour. As the
poles are on the axis Itself, they do not
rotate at all, their linear speed Is zero.
This, therefore la the first reason why
they are called singular points.
Effect of Rotation.
The consequence of this Immobility Is a
total oa of the so-called centrifugal force.
This forte is the apparent tendency of a
point to recede from the center of revolu
tion; It Is In reality a case of Inertia, ac
cording to which It tenda to retain Ita di
rection and remain on j the tangent line.
At the equator this tendency Is a maxt-
know. la a big ball, and is turning. That

points on Ita surface, by the shadow It i ,r . , , ...e,-. from the
casts upon the moon In a lunar eclluae. and
lastly by extended measurements of Its
surface. That It U In rotation la proved by
the classical experiment or Foucault's pen
dulum, by the gyroscope, and the devia
tion of projectiles, and enpeclally by the
si lence of celestial mechanics, m. Mch estab
lishes Itx rotation as an essential poxtu
late. Wc know also that the earth Is carried
forward bodily as a whole, and that Ita
renter movea In a well-defined orbit about
the sun. This feature doea not Interest us
at present, and e ahull dismiss It with
the statement that the earth runs a little
over a million and a half miles a day. and
In so doing turns round once on Its axis In
moving forward about two hundred times
Its own length. This, as e see. Is a very
Tne bank a Splaatag Ball.
The poles, as as .aid, are the extremi
ties of the axis about nhlrh the earth
turns. This axla Is often said to be Imag
inary, aa opoueed to real, and when we
ay real, we lake the rase of a mounted
globe or a wheel turning on an axla. or
axle. In fixed journals. The earth, of
course, has no real sxls In this sense ss It
Is frealy suspended In space. When, there
fore, we say that the earth's axis Is
Imaginary, c mean that It U exactly Ilka
that of a ball, which we may throw up Into
the 4eW and to nhtch we may give a more
or laa rapid i4!inliig motion. Thla spin-
and approached the equator, and have
there accumulated In a ring of matter thir
teen miles JhU k The equatorial radius of
the earth Is therefore thirteen miles longer
than the polar radlua. This dlference be
tween the radii of different parts of the
csrth's surface Is a gradual one. The polar
radii are the shortest, and the rext In
crease In length gradually until we reach
the equator, so that a meridian section of
the earth is nearly a true ellipse, with Its
minor axis running through the poles and
its major sxls In the plsne of the equstor.
The poles of the earth are therefore
unique In two respects; they do .not rotate,
and they are nearer the earth's censer
than the other parts of the surface. For
both reasons the weight of bodies Is a
maximum at the poles. It Is one pound
out of every 1V0 greater than at the
These results have been obtained princi
pally by means of the pendulum. We
know that gravity Is the only force that
moves a pendulum, and that the time It
lakes to complete a vlbratlou Is absolute?
constant as long as the force of grsvity
and the length of the pendulum are the
same. By transporting the same pendulum
therefore to various parts ef the earth's
surface, we can determine the variation of
gravity, and thus find the shspe of the
earth. This has been done already In so
many plaoes that we have a pretty accur
als knowledgu vt the shape of the earth.
It Is by Inference from these results that
we know what the force of gravity Is at
the poles. It would, however, be a moBt
desirable consummation of these researches
to set up such a pendulum at the pole
The sxls of revolution about which the
earth revolves Is not fixed In the earth
ss one would naturally suppose, and as
even scientific men supposed, until the
contrary was proved. It moves about in
a very complicated manner. The polls
shift on the ground In a space about sixty
feet In diameter. There are two compo
nent to the motion. The first has a pe
riod of one year, and moves the pole of
revolution In sn ellipse, whose major axis
Is about twenty-eight feet and minor axis
about eight feet. The centre of this ellipse
Is .a certain fixed point termed the pole
of symmetry or the pole of figure. The
second component moves the pole of revo
lution in a circle about this same pole
ut symmetry as a centre. This circle has
a diameter of about thirty feet, and the
period Is 413 dsys. Both 'motions are in
the same direction, from west to east
The ellipse swings round slowly In the
opposite direction at the rate of about
five degrees a year, and there seoms to
be another variation with a period of
about 436 days.
These results have been obtained by as
tronomers without lesvlng their observa
torles, by observing the variations of their
latitudes. Places on opposite meridians
behaved oppositely; when one approached
the pole by Increasing Its latitude the
other departed from It by decreasing Its
own the Identical amount. In this way
It was proved that the continents did not
sway to snd fro. but that the axis of revo
lution Itself shifted in the earth.
Artaal Obaervatloa' ceded.
This splendid achievement of modern
science would receive much confirmation
and would be prosecuted with less labor
and with better results, by sn extended
series of observstlons made near tile
poles themselves. This would, of course,
require the refined Instrumental outfit of
a large and fixed observatory.
The occupation of the pole bv a flxd
observatory would have no other astronom
ical advantage. The apparent diurnal mo
tions of the heavenly bodies as seen from
the poles are known to every elementary
student. The mounting of the Instruments
would give rise to no special theoretical
or mechanical problems. The advantage
of the long night of alx months, which
the twilight would cut down to about
three, would be offset by the at luast
equally long day. Observations by day or
by night would most probably be much
Interfered with by the weather. So that
as far as the observation of the heavenly
bodies Is concerned, tbs poles are rather at
a disadvantage, and this the more because
only half the heavens is visible at each
The magnetism at and near the poles Is
another subject upon which Information
Is desirable. We know that the earth has
two magnetic poles, and that these are at
considerable distances from the poles ot
revolution, and moreover are not at the
extremities of the ssme diameter.
The magnetic elements of the earth are
three, declination, inclination and Intens
ity. Declination Is another name for the
variation of the compass, and Is the angle
the msgnetlc needle makes with the true
meridian. Inclination is the angle the dip
ping needle ms.kts with the horizon. It la
meusured by supporting a magnetlo needle
on its centre of gravity, placing It In the
magnetic meridian, and leaving It free to
turn In a vertical plane. At the mag
netic poles the dipping needle dips ninety
degrees, that is, st:,nds perfectly upright
At the magnetic equator, which for ob
vious reasons canrot coincide with' the
astronomical equator, the dip Is tero, and
the needle is hortsontal. And lastly, the
third element Is the intensity, which means
simply the strength of the earth's magnet
ism at any place.
Three Masrnetle Elements.
These three magnetic elements, especially
the declination, which Is of such vital im
portance in navigation and travel gener
ally, have bean pretty well determined all
over the earth. This is true to the ex
tent that' they may be approximately pre
dicted for places In which they have not
yet been actually measured. I say approx
imately because actual magnetic surveys
have disclosed many important errors.
And, moreover, all the three elements are
subject to sccldentsl and periodic varia
tions. The accidental variations are called
magnetic storms, snd the periodic ones ar
divided Into diurnal, annual and secular
changes. Explorers cannot, therefore,
trust the compass lmpllclty. On the other
hand, the magnetic elviuents they observe
add a welcome amount to our store ot in
formation. Am one of the magnetic poles of ' the
earth has been well located and been act
ually occupied by explorers, we have a
somewhat definite knowledge of Its mag
netic elements. But the whole scientific
world is much Interested to know what the
magnetic elements of the poles of revo
lution are, and to what variations they
sre subject. Fixed magnetic observatories
at all the four pules, the two magnetic and
the two revolutlonal, is one of the dsy
dreams of science. v
The meteorological conditions at the
poles claim their share of scientific in
terest. Only one day and one night In
the year must cause most abnormal con
ditions of the weather. The cyclonic, th;il
Is rotary, whirl of the stmosphere would
seem to be most pronounced near the act
ual center of revolution. The extremity
of the cold followed by the long Insolation,
Is another exceptional feature. A meteor
ologist would have no rest until he also
Could erect an observatory at the poles.
We can find space here only to hint at
the other sciences thst would benefit
greatly by polar exploration, such as geol
ogy, geography, soology, botany and many
others. The polar sea would probably be
as Interesting as the land, in Its currents,
life, temperature, and other features.
But enough has been said to show that
the actual occupation of the poles would
add enormously Ut the advancement of

Few regions afford so Interesting a
field for the epitaph, collector' as the coun
ties of southeastern Pennsylvania round
about Philadelphia, which were originally
peopled to a large extent by Germans. In
the ancient burial grounds of this district
there sre many repetitions of thst one time
popular tombstone stanza which ia found
In nearly every old. cemetery:
Reader, behold aa you pass by,
As you are now so once was It
As 1 sm now so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me,
But besides the repetition of various fav
orite epitaphs there are, many original
outbursts In these Pennsylvania cemeteries.
For Instance, In the pretty churchyard at
Whltemarsh, where members of many
wealthy suburban families of modern
times repose, the grave of John Barge,
who died In 1756, Is marked by a stone
which bears this stansa:
Life Is a cheat
, And always shows it;
M IIIOUBUI SO Ulllt-,
And now I know it.
A few miles further west. In the ceme
tery of Bt. John's Lutheren church. Center
Square, is this epitaph, the third line of
which doubtless was gratifying to those
he dealt with:
Farewell, my wife and children dear,
1 am not dead but sleeping here;
My debts are paid, my grave you see,
Walt, but your time and follow me.
South of the Schuylkill river the Vincent
Baptist burying ground contains a stone

Bucks county's graveyards supply sev
eral unusual epitapha. A atone In the cem

In memory of Samuel MeCracken,
Who died April 19. 12.
If leading polltlclna snd priests
All go to Heaven, then 1 am bound
To stop at some other ststlon. -'
McCracken triads an agreement with the
cemetery . association for the erection of
this monument and then committed aulclds
by cutting his throat. Beside McCracken
rests his wife, and the Inscription on the
stone at her grave. In contrast with that
on the rdjolnlng marker, reads thus:
In memory of Phoebe, wife of Samuel
Mct'rscken. who died March . lu. fhe
died a firm believer In Christ, her Savior.
A crude p)cture of a horse kicking a
boy is the principal feature of a tombstone
In a cemetery near Doylestown, and be
neath the carving are these words:

In the burial ground at the old Htlltown
church, Bucks county, are five tomb
stones In a row, and the successive In
scriptions begin thus:
Anna, wife of Tobias Brown.
Mary, wife of Tobias Brown.
Jane, wife of Toblaa Brown.
Sarah, wife of Tobias Brown.
Tobias Brown At Rest.
Even the solemn and serene cemetery
of the Moravians In . Bethlehem supplies
an Interesting sddltlon to the list of queer
epitaphs In the following, which Is In
scribed on a stone at an Indian grave:
In memory to my dearest son, .Tames Mc
Donald Koss, eldest son of John Ross, prin
cipal chief of the Cherokee nstlon
died In St. Louis November 9. 18S4. His
corpse trsnsported by Adams Fxpress to
Bethlehem snd Interred st this sacred spot

At historic Trinity church, In the northern
suburb of Philadelphia, a tombstone In
script Ion recalls the early strife there be
tween the Quakers and the Episcopalians
over the control of thst place of worship.
It was founded as a Quaker meeting house
but early In the eighteenth century It
passed Into the possession of the Episco
palians. The epitaph, dated 1708, reads
Here by these lines Is testified
No Quaker was she when she dy'd
So far was she from Quakerism
That she desired to have bsptism
For her own babes snd children dear
To these lines true witness bear.
The efforts of an eighteenth century pun
ster sre apparent In a German epitaph In
Hood's cemetery, Uermantown. Those not
conversant with German of course need
an explanation that the German word
frey" Is equivalent to "free." The epi
taph is at the grave of Johannes Frey and
concludes with this stansa:
Ich war der Frey, doch bin
Ich hler erst Frey worden.
