Like Mine schoolmaster, kind In being stern,
Who hears the children crying o'er their slates
And calling, "Help me. Master!" yet helps not.
Since In his silence and refusal lies
Their self-development, so Ood abides
Unheeding many prayers. He Is not deaf
To any cry sent up from earnest hearts;
. lf hears and strengthens when He must deny.
He sees us weeping over life's hard sums;
But should He give the key and dry our tear.
What would It profit us when school were riom
And not one lesson mastered?

Which were denied; and that denial bends

Of my maturer years. Yet from those prayers
I rose always reglrded for the strife
And conscious of new strength. Pray on, sad hcurt.

earth? What If It

distance were re
! duced to half Its
would be eight times four, or thirty-two
feet; If Its distance were reduced to one
quarter of its present amount, the height
of tlie tide would be sixty-four times
four, or 2G4 feet.
I On the other hand. If the moon were
removed to twice its present dint ante,
the height of the tide would be reduced
to one-ehkhth of four feet, or six inches.
j while, with the lunar distance increased
four-fold, ths tide would be only one-alxty-fourth
of four feet, or three-quarters
of an Inch, In height.
Ths law underlying these things may
be stated thus: The tide-raising force
varies Inversely as the cube of the dis
tance of the body whose attraction pro
duces the tide.
Observe that It Is the cube, and not the
! squsre. of the distance that is employed
in the calculations. This usually sur
prises persons who remember vaguely,
from their school days, that the attrac
tion of gravitation varies Inversely as the
square of the distance. This law of "in
verse squares" is perfectly true when we
are dealing with the simple attraction
unawn no oouies consitiered as whole,
tor then the attraction must be regarded
as focused at their centers of gravity.
But tidal force Is a different effect; that
la to say. It represents the difference be
tween the attraction upon a nearer and
a farther point of ths same body. In
this raae the Inverse cube of the distance
determines the force.
Tbe total force of the moon's attraction
upon the earth la measured by the mass
of the moon snd the distance between
Its center and 'he center of the earth.
The mm always remains the same, but
the distance may vary. If the distance
Increases, or diminishes, the rone be
comes greater or teas, as Newton Uemoii
strsud. In ths ratio of the Inverse square
of the distance. That Is to say. If the
distance Is doubled, the force decreases to
one-fourth, and if the distance is halved
the force increases four-fold. But the
tklo-raisir.g force depends not merely
upon the distance between the centers of
tho moon and the earth, but upon tho
difference of the moon's distance from
tho center and from the surface of the
earth. If, then, the distance is either in
creased or diminished, the difference lust
spoken of will vary in accord with the
nexi nigner power of the distance, I. e.,
tho cube, and halving the distance will
not simply quadruple the force (2x2x3

many million times. If the law of in

as it does In the caw of the sun's at

tides raised by the sun would bo about

Another consequence is that a great

height of the tides, since a mmniraiivi.

irom the earth produces a large change
in the tiiul force. The moon travels
round the earth In an elliptic orbit,
which causes it to be sometimes as much
as SVOO miles nearer than at other
times, and when it is iiearest (particul
arly If at such a time as its tides hap

the fact that this great world and all
that is in it belongs to women ss much
It Is our world in full half share; not
to divide snd manage separately, but to
administer as a whole, together.
All our previous history up to dste has
made the mistake of assuming this to be
man's world: snd, laboring under this
initial error, man has run It all by him
self In his own way.
Woman meanwhile was carefully rele
gated to a circumscribed region called
home. This, she was told, was her
world all the rest was his. She was the
"queen of the home" and he wss every
No, If the home really .was a separate
world, entirely under her management,
our story would have been very different.
As a matter of fact, the home was his
home, like everything else. Its size snd
quality snd location, all depended upon
him an J he ran hop up and change when
he pleases tske It to India or Africa or
wherever he pleases and the queen must
follow after. Also this little queendom
is run to suit the king's tastes and needs
and desires. The queen cooks and washes
for him and lives on what he gives her.
The home belongs to man and woman
both, of course; and the whole roun-J
world belongs to man and woman both
equally, of course.
It Is time that the women of the world
realised this, and accepted the responsi
bility. Men tell us our work Is nobler
than theirs. It Is. We make people.
There la no nobler work than that. But
look at the people we make! Are you
satisfied with them?
I do not mean your own children of
course, they are perfect- Ixok at other
people's children are they perfect?
Are you satisfied with the appearance
and behavior of the people you see about
you In the street every day? Are you
satisfied with the street, with the houses,
with the city? Do you like the lend Isws
of your country? Are you contented
with the quality of the goods you buy snd
the price you psy?
Is this world the kind of place you
like to have your children grow up In?
"The home Is woman's world," they tell

Why should they? It is merely the old
brute instinct of sex-combat that makes
men fight; it is not a human performance
merely male one.
Yet. bo convinced are they of the

of fighting thst they would' deny us a

sooth, we cannot fight!
Will some one please show the social

of women will be to stop the fighting.
In later aire, ages of peace and uni

room for improvement. We speak as in
a "feminine" view of life must be neces

then, so is a "masculine" view.

are people men are humanity and wo
men are their females. Biological knowl

us. that iu strict sclentlfio faot the
female is a race type, the male Is a
varlent of later introduction. We need
not try to aet up a counter claim to ssy
that women, are humanity and relegate
men to the position of a subsidiary sex.
That time has passed forever. But we
can and should recognise the fact that
women are humanity exactly as much as
men, and have an equal interest and re
sponsibility in human affairs.

We do not study social conditions, find
