before the birth of Christ, you will find
tho following most interesting reference
to the twin stars of the Bpartan brothers;
which shows that even in the days of
Uurlpldcs the constellation Gemini was
of unmeasured antiquity:
"Troy has been captured; Hecuba, the
widowed queen of King Priam, who was
killed, together with his son. Hector, by
the terrible Achilles, bewails her fate
(she was doomed to be carried off as a
slave by the wily and hated Ulysses), and
then, with burning indignation, turns to
to denounce the falsehood of Helen, who
has Just proclaimed that she was an
unwilling follower of her paramour, larls,
Hector's unworthy brother.
"Ha!" exclaims Hecuba, "my son car
ried thee off by force, thou sayest. What
Spartan saw this? What cry for help
dldnt thou ever raise? though Castor was
still alive, a vigorous youth, and his
brother also, not yet amid the stars!" .
Who does net feel the added charm
that attaches to those stars from the
knowledge that Euripides and his con
temporaries knew them by the same
names that they bear today, and that
through the greatest period of Greek his
tory, during the oenturles when Qreece

written with stars on the spangled sons

At this snsson of the year the stars ot
tho "Oreat Twin Brethren" are low down
in the western evening sky, but overhead,
and all around the visible firmament,
there are other storied stars and con
stellations, any on of which . will, serve
to recall the ane-lonjr ; association uf
