It Is simply a matter of area; the spots
cover hundreds of millions of square
miles of the sun's surface, and since they
are comparatively dark they cut off a
proportional amount of radiation Carry
ing heat to thn earth.
The loss to the earth amounts to a de
crease of about one degrees In the aver
age height of tho thermometer. To that
extent, then, the sun Is a' variable star,
with a period of a little over eleven years
from one maximum to the next.
But the periods are Irregular not in
length but in Intensity.
Moreover, recent obsrvatlons have
shown that the solar radiation Is subject
to much rapid and extensive fluctua
tions In periods of only a few months.

The absolute dependance on tha earth
upon thn sun for everything which makes
planetary life possible gives an over
whelming significance to thn growing
proof that the sun Is not an entirely re
liable, and certainly not an Indefinitely

forms of radiant energy.

tha S.MO.0M or O.OOft.MO years during which
the sun will continue in gradually de

the flitting of a single moment, while
all the sums of spsce, which to us seem
eternal, pass before their unwinking eyes
like the flickering sparks In a spinthari
scope, where a bit of radium Is shooting
Itself awsy in mimic showers of stars.
But to us the lifetime of a man Is very
long, so that the seeds of death that
visibly affect It in sunspots do not greatly
alarm us. "Not In our day," we say,
"nor In our children's, will the cold and
darkness come. That Is for another
geological age to face."

There Is nothing so charming as a

Swimming Is a most healthful exercUe

perhaps a rest for an hour or so on the

The bathing suit Is not meant to glo

Dear Miss Fairfax: I am deeply In
love with n young man who workB In thn
same place I do. He Is married, but his
wife doen not live In the same town. Ha
goes to see her about once a weok or
oncn in two weeks. I have allowed him
to take me home and have grown very
fond of him. 1 know he thinks a great
deal of me and treats me very nice, t
have tried very hard to give him up. but
it seems I Just can't, I dn't want to
teavn my work, nt, 1 have a nice position,
and I sen him nearly all day. I am
twenty-six and he twenty-seven. What
shsll 1 do? BESSIE.
If you permit yourself to foitsr ycur
love for a married man you aro In danger
of ruining three lives hs, hln wife's and
your own. If you are strong enough to
meet this man with an a'r of frank
friendliness and to allow no romance or
lovemaklng, you will be safe in keeping
your rosltlop. You must not permit your-
i elf to think of love for this man. A
man who Is not true to thn wife to whom
the law ahd the church and his sacred
vows bind him In not likely to be faith
ful to a girl who holds herself lightly.

There is apt to be a latent apprehension
of distress to mar the complete Joy of
expectation. Cut this Is quite overcome
by the advice of so many women to uso
"Mothere Friend." This is an external
application designed to so lubricate the
muscles and to thus so relieve the pres
sure reacting on the nerves, that the
natural strain upon the cords and liga
ments Is not accompanied by those severe
pains said to cause nausea, morning sick
ness and many local distresses. This
splendid embrocation Is known to a multi
tude cf mothers.
Mai.y peopie believe that those remedies
which have stood the test of time, that
have been put to every trial under the
varying conditions of age. Weight, general
health, etc., nay be safely relied upon.
And Judging by the fact that "Mother's
Friend" has been in continual use since
our grandmother's earlier years and la
known throughout tha United Btates It
nay be easily inferred that It Is some
thing that women talk about and gladly
