The Ragged Edge
y 3IILE8 OVKItHOLT. N
The story Iihb brn often told of how the collar button rolled .
Beneath the whatnot seven feet so that no man could reach it.
But I've a tale a tnrlller, too a long Havana filler, too
A atory with a meaning that's so strong I want to screech It.
I send my collars to the tub as Shakespeare said: "Ay, there's the rub"
And fondly hope I'll got 'era back ere old age shows my fallings;
And when they come, ah, fellow men, they're no more white, they're
Besides, the edges, razor sharp, stand up like Iron palings.
gL, (JTt i I i t i iYtTTT 1fein
He's An Honest Man, Mr. Cop
I'd like to see the weird machine that strives to make a collar clean
By crushing It to smithereens and filing off the edges;
I'd like to see the maniacs who chop the collars with an ax,
And beat 'em Into carpet tacks with heavy Iron sledges.
There are some billion men like me, from Paris west to Kankakee
Who have a similar complaint and, feeling sore, decry it;
While clothes deraolishers are few. (They must employ a coward's crew.)
Why stand ye idle all the day? Let's rise and start a riot.
Let's move upon the washermen, and one by one we'll squash 'em, then,
And as they groan themselves to death, perhaps at last they'll rue it;
And Justi before they pass away; before we give 'em time to pray,
We'll make 'em bare their secret souls and tell us how they do it.
Radiant Splendors in Witching Hours
Lowe Observatory, California.
By E DC Alt LUCIEN LAKKIX.
Heyonil tho uliglieRt doubt tha original
witching hour wua from that of midnight
to 2 a. ni. Hut up here they extend
from darkness to daylight. However,
fiom the midnight moment to 3 In the
morning in u period more intense than
all, for the BtUlne and solitude reign
aupremely In mystery and majesty. There
is total absence of Bound, and one can
almost imagines that he hears the axis
of the earth turn. Now Is tha time to be
up, from 1 to 3 a. m., to see the splendors
of El Toro, with the Pleiades, Hyades,
Mars and Saturn. Let twenty persons,
a class In the mighty science of astron
omy, go out to study the stars and let
the teacher aslc one to trace the orbit
of the earth In pace. If this student
could not, then let another be asked, and
o on. it might happen that none of
the twenty could do this easy work.
Such things have occurred. Draw a
straight lino from Alcyone, the brlghest
tar In thut splendid group, the Pleiades,
high in the cast, to Aldebaran, the brll
liunt first magnitude star In the v-shaped
aaterlum the Ilyades and the center of
this line, very nearly, will cross the orbit
of our flying world, the earth. In Its
majestic motion around tha sun. Slightly
to the left of the middlo of this line.
1. ., a little toward the northeast of the
crossing point of tho orbit of the earth,
may b seen glowing In fiery red the
planet Mars. It is so very near tha orbit
of the earth that the eye, without a
measuring teleucope, could scarcely be
able to detect the difference. Fix the
eyes on Mars, then turn their Una of
vision fifteen degrees westward and one
degree eighteen minutes southward, and
the magnificent planet Saturn will be
seen. Thus, apparently, as seen from
tho earth. Mars and Saturn are so nearly
In the direction of tha pathway of tha
earth that a good idea of its position
may be secured. Mars la 141,000,000 miles
from the sun, the giant world, Saturn
mOOO.OOO, while wa are 92.882,000 miles
from our star the sun. Tho colossal
rings of Baturn are now inclined to tha
line of vision from the earth, so that
they are on display In all their grandeur.
This morning the dim crape Interior ring
was clearly observed, and all tha minute
details of rings and disk were brought
out by tha great lenses In the pure room
ing air of the mountains. "Continental"
outlines are beginning to be made out
on Mars, but It is now so far away tat
details, "canals" really channels are In
visible, If they really exist, For nine
tenths of all published about the canals
must be tuken with a saline degree of
allowance. Everybody should be up
within the esoteric hours of the morning,
and then keep up the habit. The com
ing winter will be splendid along tha
planetary way, for thces two worlds will
put on adornment In tha sky of night.

The Marriageable Age

On tha heated contrtVyarsx Whjch la. al

come to the same com Uiflon that tliero
Is none, for the reu.su n thut it entirely
depend on tho temperuiiient of the girl
herueir. Provided alio has been properly
brought up and from the time of leaving
school has been taught to realise thut
there Is something Intrinsically higher In
this HTc than incio enjoy incut, there Is
no reason why a girl, suy, of Vi or Iosk,
should not make an ideal wife, always
taking It for granted that sho la blessed
with fcooil health, for this "U the flist
consideration of ull, luusiiuieli as a gli)
who Is not phy.-ileiilly us ucll uh mentally

such u condition it Is manifest thu is nut

the InteiestM of the race it U as well
that she should not do ho. One so often

too young to know lier own mind." anil
In some eases this may be only too true,
but there can be no rule, it Is not the

In their tei iih, who know their own minds

of them have, quite us much common

been tseiupllfied In many hundred of

Tho munlage question has numerous

weighed ami nerlously considered. A mis

astrous results Is ll ;it son.' younK k'.i'H
aro too much inclined to uceupt the firat
uffer that presents Itself, and Into the
eura of thoau who ure, so to speuk. In a
hurry to get married, tho proverb o(
"marry In haste, repent ut leisure" can
not bo toj Industriously dinned. They
ful itvllL to be their owri dlstfeair atij to
have a homo of their own, to have what
Shakespeare called "a local habitation
and a name;" but these are the point
which they should consider last of all.
The more material advantages should ba
reltgated rigidly to the background. The
dominating thought should be how to
promoto the mutual tiapplnr.i and com
fort of man and wife, and what they are
going to do for those lives for whom they
muy some duy be held mainly respon
sible. When a girl contemplates launch

should be given to the serious point

girl who ls;l:eulthy and capable ui tack
Unit the serious side of this all-important
