Kow ere I slept, my prayer bad been tbat I might see my way
To do the will of Christ, our Lord and Master, day by day;
And with this prayer upon my Hps, I knew not that I dreamed,
But suddenly the world of night a pandemonium seemed.
From forest, and from slaughter house, from bull ring, and from stall.
There rose an anguished cry of pain, a loud, appealing rail;
Aa man the dumb beast's next of kin with gun, and whip, and knife,
Went pleasure-seeking through the earth, blood-bent on taking life.
From trap, and cage, and house, and too. and street, that awful strain
Of tortured creatures rose and swelled the orchestra of pain.
And then methought the gentle Christ appeared to me, and spoke:
"I called you, but ye answered not" and in my fear I awoke.
Again I slept. I seemed to climb a hard, ascending track;
And Just behind me labored one whose patient face was black.
1 pitied him; but hour by hour he gained upon the path;
Ha stood beside me stood upright and then I turned In wrath.
"Go back!" I cried. "What right have you to walk bestde me here
For you are black and I am white." I paused, struck dumb with fear.
For lo! the black man was not there, but Christ stood in his place;
And lo! the pain, the pain, the pain, that looked from that dear face.
Then next I heard the roar of mills; and moving through tbe noise,
like phantoms in an underwood, were little girls and boys.
Their backs were bent, their brows were pale, their eyes were sad and old;
But by the labor of their hands greed added gold to gold.
Again the Presence and the Voice: "Behold the crimes I see,
As ye have done it unto these, so have ye done to me."
Now when I woke, the air was rife with that sweet, rhythmic din
Which tells the world that Christ has come to save mankind from sin.
And through tbe open door of church and temple passed a throng.
To worship Htm with bended knee, with sermon, and with song.
But over all I heard the cry of hunted, mangled things;
Those creatures, which are part of God, though they have hoofs and wings.
I saw in mill, and mine, and shop, the little slaves of greed;
I heard the strife of race with race, all sprung from one God-seed.
And then I bowed my head in shame, and In contrition cried:
"Lo, after nineteen hundred years, Christ still is Crucified."

Sun Power Under Human Control
This May Pound Peculiar, but Its a Fact That the Time J Not Far Away
When Men Will Utilise the Sun's Illimitable Energy.
By GARRETT P. SERV1S9.

Here Is something inspired by questions
from people whose curiosity has been
awakened concerning the stupendous
flood of energy that the sun Is con
down upon the
earth, and the util
ization of which
may some day
revolutionise life on
At the distance of
the earth from It
the ' J heat energy
yearly expended by
the sun is as great
In amount as would
be produced by the
burning of slxty-
elx globes of the
best anthracite coal, each as heavy as
the earth, or 6,346 such globes, each, equal
in weight to the moon.
But the greater part of this energy Is,
as far as we can see, expended upon
empty space because, except where a
Planetary body Is Interposed in the path
of the rays, there is nothing for them
to act upon. Only about two-thousand-millionth
of the sun's radiant energy Is
intercepted by the earth, and only about
one two - hundred - snd-twenty-flve-mll-llonth
by all the planets together. This
makes the sun look like a gigantic spend
thrift, but if he did not radlste In every
direction he would not be seen from dis
tant space; he would not be a star among
the stars, and who can say that what be
xpends to make himself known, and to
maintain his rank in the universe. Is not
ts well spent as the gratuities that he
flings to his planets?
Instead of questioning his right to be
prodigal we may better inquire whether
we are making the best possible us of
what he freely gives ua His gift of en
ergy to the earth Is equivalent, upon
every thirty square feet of surface, to
oaa-horsepower, continuously acting.
Of course a grest deal of the energy
thus applied Is used for the maintenance
of many natural processes on the earth
Vegetation, animal life, the circulation of
the atmosphere, all weather phenomena.
rains, winds, etc., depend upon the utilisa
tion of the energy bestowed by the sun.
Recently the Academy -of Science, In
Pari a listened to a paper by Prof. Lav
eran on "The Solar Ration," by which he
means the sun's energy absorbed by men
and animals in place of ordinary food.
He proved by experiments on guinea pigs
that the amount of food necessary to main
tain them at a fixed weight regularly de
creased as the amount of sunshine, that
they received Increased.
Comparisons of the amount of food con
sumed by men in hot and cold climates.
he argued, bore out his contention that
there Is a direct utilisation by absorp
tion of the sun's rays to maintain bodily
But there is sa abundance of overplus
in the sun's bounty which we might utll
ice lor mechanical purposes It only we
knew how or could contrive the proper
Instead of depending almost exclusively
upon the burning of coal and similar fuel
for the production of steam power, and
even for the production of electrical
power, we ought to take the ready-made
heat .that th sun pours down upun us.
Many efforts toward that end have been
made, but none on a large enough scale.
Usually the plsn adopted Is that of con
centrating the solar rsys by means of
lenses or mirrors. Solar engines of this
kind have repeatedly proved their capac
ity to work, with no expenditure for fuel
which the sua supplies without cost, but
there are two particular difficulties In the
way. One of these is the variability of
the supply of sunshine, due to tbe Imper
fect transparency of the atmosphere sad
to clouds, and another is the unmenage-
able, or at least Inconvenient, slse the
must be givta to the apparatus In order
to produce- results on a commercially
It may be thst the solution will be
ivuad la a direction which hitherto bss
been relatively neglected. This refers to
the "hot box" plan, which the astrono
mer. Sir John Herschel, was one of the
first to experiment with. He took a ma
hogany box, blaekened within, and fur
nished with a glass window exposed per
pendicularly to the sun's rays. It - Is i
property of glass to freely allow sunlight
to pass through it, while It obstructs the
passage of the dark rays of heat Thus
the heat from the rsys was imprisoned
in the box. The principle is that of the
gardener's hot house. Herschel obtained
a temperature many degrees above that
! of boiling water; and be not only boiled
eras, but even stewed mest and vegeta
bles with the aid ef the sun heat alone.
These experiments were made at the
Cape of Good Hope.
Bines his time others have experimented
with similar apparatus, among them the
late Prof. SI P. Langley and Prof. Charles
O. Abbot. The success attained Is highly
noouraging, and many Interesting de
tails may he found In Prof. Abbot's book
on "The Bun."
In a word, ths sun is the greatest source
of energy within our reach, or In touch
with us, and It must W hard if this In
ventive century does not witness an enor
mous development of sun power under
