A hill haa been Introduced In the legis

Lyons la widely
known aa a food
specialist and dlet
lctan of note, and
he la also well
l.nown and actively
engaged In child
welfare work. In
HMO he visited some
I sixty cities ami

industries, to further Inform herself on
conditions relating to child labor, studied
-and observed children on the strret. In
the school and at play.

Mrs. Lyons believes that ninny phases
of man's Injustice to man, of the law,
less methods employed In the hurincss
v.-orld. of tho apirlt of greed In th.- land,
can be traced to delect.. In the tduca
t'onal system. In a private letter Mrs.
Lyons says: "Voutli is going to waste
Tor the saving hand. We talk of economy,
yet we permit this waste of childhood,
this waste of counllnsa millions, in vari
ous ways known to us oil, and we cry
hard limes. Is It not time for our fed

Its children, as an aset of such value

mothers In thoae things they should have

schools. Why not Inculcate rightYubtte of

fcave lost sight of this object, and the
results are painfully evident."
Mrs. Lyon's slogan la "Save the child.
Veld the children In early life." 8he
goes to Albany shortly to help her bill
and later ahe goos to the Panama e it po
sition to speak of the child as a national
asset. As a teacher of several years' ex.
perlenre ln both public and private
achoola, Mrs. Lyons holds firmly to the
thought that a smattering of book
knowledge does not qualify a child for
citizenship or for life.
She declares a great truth which seems
to be utterly lost sight of In our school
srstems today, namely that character is
of greater Importance than book knowl
edge; that It should go hand in hand
with education.
No one who studies our school system
In America can for one moment question
the truth of Mrs. Lyon's statements.
Children are crowded with .various kinds
of knowledge obtained from text books,
and the result Is a loss of concentration
and a weakening of the memory when
they emerge from high school.
Added to this not one child in 100 who
graduate from tho high school course

even grammatical language, and not one

March is the first' of the spring months,
because on the art at 10:52 a. m. the sun
passes through the - vernal equinox. It
then crosses the equator, and the days
are thereafter longer than the nights for
six months to come. ' "':' .'
Astronomers have at the very beginning
of the science platted the sun's position
In the sky with ' reference to the stars.
They celled the sun a wandering star, a
planet, according " to the old, now re
jected, but st til reasonable definition.
They fouqd that it always moved along
the same path, the ecliptic, that this
ecliptic was a great circle of the celes
tial sphere like the equator, but Inclined
to It at-an angle of 23s degrees.
As the 'axis "round which the earth
really seems to. turn is only the pro
longation of the. one round which the
earth reany . turns,' hour angles or. time
are or Is. measured at the pole or on the
equator, as any student of spherical
geometry will explain.
Now let us Imagine, the sun to be In
line with .a certain star at noon today.
When the heavens have made one com
plete turn and brought back the star to
the meridian, one sidereal day has
passed.. At that moment, on account of
the continual eaatward movement' of the
earth., which carries It 'round the whole
sphere' once a year, the sun will be some
what east of the meridian, and It - will
take about four mlnutea more before It
la exactly on It when It Is noon, snd one
solar day haa passed. If ws set our
clock to keep pace with the sun, we have
solar time, which wilt lose about four
minutes a day on slcdrcsl time.
I aald "about four mlnutea," and here
is all the difficulty for a young astron
omer. . While this difference Is regular,
that la, law-abiding. It la not uniform,
that Is, the same, every dsy. It cannot
be so for two reasons, it - will be an
enormous help towards the understand
ing of the first of these two reasons.
If we could take any terrestrial
glebe, - which In every case has the
equator and ecliptic drawn on It. We
can then compare the sun on the celes
tial sphere by a ship on the terrestrial

the ecltptlo la crossing the equator, for
every degree it runa on Its course it Is
not going a whole degree east. The ahlp

it Is distance. It ia leas than four min

parison.) When after three months the
There isn't anything I own except you and my own
hair and nothing of my own to do save smile and
stand around! It isn't my kitchen! And if we stay,
boy-dear, I'll pass by the visitor stage and show my
interest in things by trying to run them and then
you will feel like Pandora, with all your hopes flown
from your treasure-box! And that we cannot get
along will never mean that we are not good people.
So let's don't stay. . For every woman the satin-clad

grown quite used to the glitter of many gems, and the

ship hag reached Us highest northern
latitude, . It ' Is making longitude much
faster than distance. The solar day Is
then longer than . the sidereal by more
than the usual four minutes.
These conditions recur in the next
quadrant, or three months, and so on.
Hence at the equinox the sun must run
fast, and slow at the solstices. Averag
ing up all this for the year, it Is evident
that owing to the oblique path of the sun
In the ecliptic, the sun and the stars, or
the sun and a good clock, cannot possibly
keep time together. Is this a defect?
By no means, for the sun's oblique path
gives us our seaaons.
We must not forget the second reason,
that as the sun's apparent motion along
the eclipse is due to the actual motion of
the earth round it, in an ecupso the na
ture of thia latter motion adds another
complexity to the problems.
Taking both causes Into consideration,
we can compute the difference between
what ia called apparent solar time and
menu solar time for every day of the
year. This is called the equation cf
time. It shows that the sun is exactly
on time with a clock four times yea,

have all this computed to the hundredth

The apparent solar time is shown by a
sun dial constructed for the place. This
must be connected by applying' the equa
tion of time which can be found In any
elementary astronomical text book. We
then get Omaha time. But aa our city

day . and night are ' equal then, all ovor

Into account, which lifts the sun Its own
length .when in. the horizon, sunrise oc
curs at 5:57 o' cKck and sunset at 6:03
o'clock. But on the 21st the sun 'is seven
minutes slow, - hence the Omaha local
time of aunrise is 6:04 o'clock and of aun
aet :10 o'cleck. Adding twenty-four min
utes, we get the central time our own
clocks show, 6-28 o'clock and t:U o'clock.
On the 1st. 15th and 31st the times of
sunrise are 7:01, : snd 6:13 oiock, and
of sunset 6 2, :tS and 6:44 o'clock, thua

Saturn Is the only planet In the evening
sky. It is still . in excellent position,

Ought ynu to marry a poor man. By
all means if you love him. But It may
be a llttlA hard on the poor man.
If you hae all your life had "every
thing money can buy" you must by now
have proved the emptiness of riches and
so be fitted to eo without.' If you have
never had ans thing you are about to be
come rich in your endowment of love.
Now if the poor man is really in love
with you he may fret at seeing you go
without the diamonds and pearls snd
Bagdad silks and Siberian furs In which
he would like td deck you. And his suf
fering st the price of possible luxury
you pny for his love will be In direct
proportion to his refinement and hla un-
selflshnf F3.
So It will foe distinctly "up -to you" to
hide It If you miss what you have always
had or long for what you have always
dreamed of having.
We will assume that the poor man is
well educated, refined and honeat, and a
salary of 11,800 a year. to. which he has
risen at the age of ,10 entirely by his own
honest etforts. As a matter of fact he li
not poor at all. but simply a hard-working,
fairly well-paid man, who Is hardly
likely to become a millionaire.
Out of this $1,500 t.T a week must
come house rent, living expenses, clothes,
possible doctor's bills, pay for pleasures
and even a little, money laid up for t'.io
future in insurance or savings bank.
Now do you think the society of this
thirty-dollar-a-woek mas sufflcent recom
pense for all you must forego In HfJ?
You must consider not whether poverty
would be an Interesting experience for a
year or so, but whether you care to
chance living on a small Income for tho
rest of your mortal life.
Can you face this situation gladly and
proudly? Can you face the possibility or
being as poor as the Impecunious cricket
of the fable, while your ant-like friends
merry "good providers" and lord It over
you In this year's model limousines? Can
you meet your friends and relatives with
pity In your heart because they have not
each and all "as dear a boy" as your
own lad?
If not, you have no right- to think of
this marriage for another second!
If you marry a poor man It must be
because you love him, and love him
enough to bear poverty and to bear It
with such proud gladness of love that he
shall never In all your life together face
the pain of knowing that you regret not
having made a more "worldly marriage."
No woman haa a right to Involve the
man ahe loves In trouble that she might
have foreseen had ahe taken the trouble
to face facts honestly.
Look at your future cold-bloodedly and
hunt for its direst possibilities. If child
ren come to you can you joyfully train
them to be workers? Will you bring them
up to respect, adore and admire their
father? Will you never sneer at him f6r
the lack of great material success? Will
you never let the Idea that "the old malt
Is a failure" come Into the, Idea of the
children of the man for whom you once
were willing to forego all the luxuries
of life? Will you try to keep yourself
sweet and fine and neat and companion
able so that you may always be sweet
hearts as well as helpmate to your hus
band? i
Do not shirk tho Issue by imagining
all sorts of pleasant things that might
happen fortunes dropping from . the
clouds, marvellous investments, unex
pected legacies, miracles of furture. Face
squarely the situation of being poor
really poor all your life. Accustom your
self to the idea of going without things
that may be a matter of course to the
girls you know today.
Answer the questions honestly. It
measures your frankness as a woman.
If you are not willing to face It, I think
you scarcely deserve that any good man
should ever fall In love with you.
