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 hour (15x25360). " 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, "THP - -"T ' The rood-Drink for all Agea Rich milk, malted grain, In powder fovn.

It was Sunday noon a few minutes ago, but now it is Monday noon." 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 habited lands. - 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 venience. 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 day forward. 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. 1 couldn t stand working at a desk Resinol the tested skin-treatment If you wanttorrtsxMon your akin, there are plenty of treatments to experiment with.

"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 times. 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 professional shopping?" "Certainly," Valentine responded, looking at the wealthy Mrs. Sheldon with equanimity. "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 one. "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! tnis always. "What would you like to do?" "Interior decorating," And the girl's eyes lighted and her charming face dimpled softly as she said the words. "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.

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 the course of serving. Cut the fish down from the gills about Six inches, wash and scrape 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 of butter, and garnish with lemon slices, water cress and radish roses. Serve with Hollandaise sauce.

Reduce to half the quan tity, then add three raw yolks of eggs, a dash of pepper; stand the pan in a pan of hot water, and work the mix ture with a wooden spoon, adding three ounces of fresh butter by de grees; when it thickens care must be taken that it does not curdle, which it will do if made too hot Strain it through a hair sieve and use.
