Invasion of a horde of spots on the sun
makes Its effects felt upon our globe.
The most conspicuous of tl esc Is In con
nection with the earth's magnetism.
The earth Is a great magnet, and the!
sun appears to exercise a direct in

Influence varying with the condition of

Exactly how the forces that produce
spots upon the sun affect the earth's
weather la an unsettled question. Tt)ere
is - a considerable ' amount of evidence
for saying that such storms as our west
ern tomapoes, the hurricanes of the West
Indies and the typhoons of the China
seas, are, far more numerous during sun
spot maxima, and especially during the
time that spot are Increasing In num
bers. .It has also been thought that wet
and dry seasons are connected In some
way with the sun spot cycle, but on this
subject the evidence is contradictory.
Some statistics ahow that dry seasons
accompany son spots, -and others that
wet seasons accompany them.
But all of these things are really ot
little account In comparison with the
great question of the effects produced
upon the sun Itself. The earth ts a speck
In the infinite vault of space, we are
animated atoms living for the fraction

finds that the sun spots are sympto

eventually bring the sun's career to an
end, and so he studies them, not for the

may affect our petty affairs, but In or

Jealousy. "Won't you explain the matter
to me?" writes Edith.
What la love? la a question that has
been asked almost ever since the world
began. The answers to It are about as
numerous as are the individuals mat
rn.ii.ta tha earth. Even the ideals of
love differ according to climate, race and
creed. A very clever man recently saia
to me, "Love Is a matter of geography."
Love Is a matter of all sorts of externals,
which It would I hsrd to dflne. But
In an ideal state love ought to be and
mean and stand f cetaln very definite
First of all, love ought to be unselfish
and seldom 1st Real love ought to con
sider the happtness of Its beloved, as well
el Itself. It ought to be faithful and
tender and true, and because It la these
things In Itself It ought to believe in
them In Its beloved.
.'Jealousy "is not part of love It Is love's
eruelest enemy, and It slsya real love. . If
you cannot trust." you do not love and
make 'up our mind to that. '.
, Emotion and love are often mistaken
for each ether. Emotion may oe a wild,
turbulent thing of feeling and desire. It

that its object can find happlneas away

Polka who are accustomed to feel dull
and heavy when they arise, splitting
headache, stuffy from a cold, foul tongue,
nasty breath, acid stomach, can, in
stead, feel as fresh aa a daisy by open
ing the alulces of the system each morn

Internal poisonous stagnant matter.
Everyone, whether ailing, sick or well,
should, each morning, before breakfast, -drink
a glass of real hot water with a
teaspoonful ot limestone phosphate In
It to wash from the stomach, liver and
bowels the previous dsy's indigestible
wests, sour bile and poisonous - toxins;
thus cleansing, sweetening and purifying
the entire alimentary canal before put

action of hot water and limestone phos

fully Invigorating. It cleans out all the'
sour fermentations, gasee. waste and
acidity and gives one a splendid appe

volume of water from the blood and
getting ready for a thorough flushing

Tlis millions of people who are bothered
with constipation, bilious spells, stomach
