"The Heavens Declare the -Glory of God and

In th daytime roan think of himself
and hta business; at nliht h thinks ot
God and tbs affair at the universe. Th
ettlnt of th tun la like the withdrawal

mad who doe not enter under Its portala
and sit down like a child to learn Its
lessons. Then only Is his spirit free, then
only does hs feel his kinship with the
(Infinite and the eternal.
A new term of this never -closing",
celestial school begins with the spring.
Tha treat constellations of winter pass
from the sky with tha ceaselsas revolu
tion of tha vast panorama, and others,
accordant with the character of the sea

it at one by th sickle-shaped figure

and breast of the Imaginary lion. A th
lower end of toe handle of thia sickle
glows ths great iter Regulua, lying doss
to the eclipse, which Is ths annual path
of the sun through the sky. Regulua Is
not as bright to ths eye as Capella, but
It Is a far greater sun, equal to thous

Turn your fact northward after look

ths north star, tha "Great Bear," Ursa
Major, who flank and long tall are rep
reeented by a figure looking Ilk th

It open bowl toward tb north. Th seven
stars forming tha outline of the dipper are,
with on exception, all of equal magni

are flying eastward and two westward,
with a speed of hundreds of thousands of

by his magnificent golden star. A returns,

A. Gold ha been hammered out to thin

A. Thunderbolts are not completely -'
understood. They ar lightning phs-,
nomena; spherical or ball lightning. They
ar gassous beyond doubt, for when they
explode with great violence no tract at
matter can be discovered. Their color la t,
bluish, tnd they appear at once, when
at aD, after terrific flashes of llghtning
of ths darting or filamentary type. Some
time! th luminous balls fall slowly, but
do not usually strike th earth, but mors
hortsontally as If supported by th elee- "
