Tho fundamental idea is, of coum1,
tho cross, tho crux for crucifying, hut it

Then cross becomes im adjective, with
rovcral meanings, as falling, athwart,
passing from ono of two positions, per
verso, etc., to tho other, being opposed,
being peevish or fretful, ill tempered,
thoroughly contrary, iu tho breeder's
vocabulary, Then it becomes an adverb,
meaning transversely or adversely. Then
it becomes a verb, with nil hinds of sig

cross ti thing, to cancel by crossing, to
cross one's self iu devotion, passing from

of water, to obstruct, to cause to inter

I am unable to say who first noticed
tho peculiar caprices of a stono or other
heavy body dropped from tho top of a
high tower, but it is nevertheless n curi
ous fact that such objects invariably fall
slightly to tho east of tho perpcudieular
line, rontons of inquiring tunt of mind
who ask w)iy this is as it is may find nu
answer in tho following: All fulling bod
ies partake ot tho earth's eastward mo
tion to n greater or lesser extent. There
fore during tho time occupied by a stono
in fulling from tho top of a high tower
or other emiuonco tho earth's rotary mo
tion has carried it an appreciable dis
tance to tho cast. The initial impetus
of tho stono has carried it to the east
ward also, thoreforu it strikes the earth
to tho east of the perpendicular, vary
ing in degree according to tho height
from which it has fallen.
A curious nrticlo on this subject may
bo found in tho Lcipsic Zeitung of May
9. 1889, pago tl. The author of the nr
ticlo, who has given it tho titlo of "Tho
Nonperpendlculurity of High Towers,"
claims that tho tower on St. Peter's ca
