A "day," in scientific usage, means
not simply the period, contrasted
with "night," during which the sun is
ibove the horizon and daylight pre
vails, but the entire period (including
oth the hours of darkness and those
jf light) which the earth takes in
making one complete turn on its axis
with reference to the sun. This is
the solar, or ordinary, day.
There is also a sidereal day, used
by astronomers, which is measured
by the period of the earth's rotation
with reference to a fixed star. It is
about four minutes shorter than the
mean solar day, but we are not con
cerned with it here.
For convenience merely, and not
because there is any reason for it
in nature, we make the day begin at
midnight, and divide it into twenty
four equal intervals, called hours. The
earth rotates from west to east, so
that the sun seems to move froirneast
to west. The whole angular distance
round 'the earth is 360 degrees, and
the un must therefore move (appar
ently) fifteen degrees westward every
" Now, suppose that you could fly
westward round the earth just fast
enough to keep up with the sun,
starting at noon. Then it would al
ways be noon for you, no matter over
what part of the earth you were. You
would have one long endless day, with
nq change of date. If it were Sunday
noon when you started it would (for
you) be the same noon when you got
round again to the starting point.
But for people living at that point
there would have been a change., They
would have had an intervening night,
and, for them Sunday would have
passed away, and Monday would have
taken its place. Where did the Sunday
end and the Monday begin, and how
did you miss the change?
To make the answer clear we will
suppose that you started from the
meridian, or noon-line," of Green
wich, which all the civilized nations
have agreed to use as the starting
point in reckoning longitude. If, when
you crossed the anti-meridian of
Greenwich, or longitude 180 degrees,

which is exactly on the opposite side
jf the earth and runs through the Pa
cific ocean, you had shouted down to
some sea captain under you, whose
ihip had just crossed the anti-meridian,
traveling in the same direction,
and asked what day of the week it
was he would have replied: "Monday;
we've just dropped a day in going over
:he line. It was Sunday noon a few
minutes ago, but now it is Monday
The same thing would have oc
curred if you had arrived at the line
Sunday midnight instead of Sunday
noon. On crossing you would have
jumped to Monday midnight. There,
then, on the 180th degree of longitude
from Greenwich,, is the birthplace of
the days. Remember it is place, not
time, of beginning that we are dealing
with. The 180th meridian is the uni
versal date line, and it has been
adopted, rather than the meridian of
Greenwich itself, simply because it
very conveniently runs through the
midst of a great ocean from pole to
pole, and as far as possible from all in
- The reason for the choice becomes
evident when you consider that it is
midnight on the 180th meridian when
it is noon at Greenwich, and it would
be very inconvenient and confusing
to change the 'date and the day ol
the week at noon, or any time during
the daylight hours. But changing
it at a time when all the most impor
tant inhabited regions of the world are
buried in night causes little incon
If, instead of going as fast as the
sun, you should take a month, or a
year, or any other period, to make
the journey, the effect would be the
same; for on arriving at the date
line you would skip twenty-four
hours, and put your reckoning one
But if you came round from the
east you would, on crossing the line,
have to go back a day. If it was
Sunday forenoon, or any other time
on Sunday, when you reached the
line,' from the eastern side, it would
become Saturday (same hour) the
moment you crossed it. A little re
flection will show that a change of
this kind is absolutely necessary,
since without it there could be no
regular succession of the day of the
week or the month. Traveling slow
er than the sun, the loss or gain of a
day is gradual accumulation, but the
change of date is not apparent until
you cross the 180th meridian, and
then it is effected suddenly.
The date-line just described is the
theoretical, or ideal one, and it is
practically used by mariners. But
the so-called "international date-line"
does not exactly follow the 180th
meridian, because there are groups of
islands lying along that meridian,
some of which were settled by peo
ple coming trom tne east ana otners
by people coming from the west, and
whose dates, consequently, are a day
apart, when they happen to lie on op
posite aides of the line.

Girl Workers Who Win
BY JANE M'LEAN.
She was remarkably beautiful.
There was something about her that
made people notice her, and, because
she regarded it sensibly, it did not
make her vain. Her name, too, was
unusual it was Valentine. When
people saw her they invariably ex
claimed: "What a beautiful girlf" And when
they heard her name they said: "And
her name just suits her."
Valentine had never known anvthinor
but admiration. She took it as her
due, and if she did not receive it
she thought the people who were un
willing to recognize such charm al
most old-fashioned. Valentine was
not a girl of- wealthy parents. Her
mother had not been able to give her
an extended education and she had
rebelled against going into an office.

all day," she explained prettily to an
old friend of her mother's who had
been taken into consultation about
getting work for Valentine to do.
"What would you like to do, my
dear?" the older woman asked, watch
the color come and go under Valen
tine's golden skin. For her skin was
golden; it had just that warm, white
color, and her hair was just off the
red, and her eyes were long and al
most green. And she was tall and
very slim and sweet, like a flower on
a stem. And the woman thought to
herself: "Valentine is a girl who
might do anything if her beauty does
not spoil her."
Finally it was decided that Valen
tine try professional shopping. It was
an outdoor job, pleasant and interest
ing, and reasonably remunerative.
One woman was employed by many
stores and given a commission on the
things she sold. It all sounded very
fascinating and Valentine quite liked
the idea and entered the work with
her heart and soul wrapped up in it.
She was so beautiful that she at
tracted trade readily, but she gave
her opinion almost too freely at
One day she was to shop for cre
tonne with a Mrs. Carey Sheldon.
Mrs. Sheldon was cantankerous, but
very rich, and rich people can afford
to be almost anything. Mrs. Sheldon
no doubt expected to meet a differ
ent type of woman, for when she met
jfalentine she stood back and gazed
at the girl in astonishment.
"Do you mean to say that you do
"Certainly," Valentine responded,
looking at the wealthy Mrs. Sheldon
"Do you know anything about cre
tonne? I have some chintz to buy
for my country home."
"I know a little about everything,"
Valentine said, promptly.
"H'm," said Mrs. Sheldon, "well;
I'll try you. I suppose you know that
you are beautiful, too beautiful for a
position like this?"
"Or course I know it," the girl re
sponded. "What's that?" .,
"I said that I knew it, but I'm not
a bit spoiled, really.I couldn't help
knowing it, because everybody tells
me about it."
Mrs. Sheldon's aristocratic face re
laxed into a smile. She had never
heard a girl speak like this one -did.
But she learned still more about Val
entine; she learned that her beauty
was not her only asset. The girl was
clever enough not to let it spoil her.
She really knew things and her day
with Mrs. Sheldon was a successful
"You ought to be buying things for
yourself,". Mrs. Sheldon said over the
luncheon table. "I don't suppose you
get much at this work."
"I get enough. I won't be doing!
"What would you like to do?"
"Interior decorating," And the
girl's eyes lighted and her charming
face dimpled softly as she said the
"So you have it all fixed, haven't
you? Well, I'll help you, if that's
what you're waiting for. that is if
you'll come out to Cedarside for a
week and help me place the cretonnes.
Then I can see how well you do it.
You're not like the girls I know; none
of them has any desire to do anything.
You seem to have a purpose In life,
you have taken the talent God gave
you and are making it count. Beauty
is just as much of a talent as any
thing else, and I propose to help you
make good. I wish there were more
girls like you."

Well dressed, and with a good sauce,
fish is more appreciated than almost
any other dish. The liver and roe may
be placed on the dish with the fish in

clean from scales, wipe dry with a
clean cloth. Make a stuffing of bread
crumbs, chopped parsley, some salt
pork finely copped, pepper, aalt and
a little butter. Fill the fish with this
and sew it up. Dredge a little flour
over it and lay the pork over it. Bake
forty minutes, then put the fish on
a hot diah with pepper, aalt, s piece

three ounces of fresh butter by de
