And the Mound Under Which the OH
Grecian Heroes Rest.
A great Grecian Inndmnrk Is tho
Soros, tho mound erected over tho
graves of 102 Athenians who foil In
tho bnttlo of Marathon, Aug. 12, 490
B. O. Tho mound Is about forty feet
high and 300 yards In clrcumferenco.
Underneath the mound He the heroes
who died In this most decisive victory
which prevented the Persians from in
Tho battle had hardly begun when
tho Ferslatis In Immensely superior
! force, doubtless ten to one, pulled
themselves together nnd by sheer mass
broko through tho Greek center. But
this hod been calculated upon before
hand. MUtlades employed strategy,
making his line wealc nt the center,
nnd allowed the Persians to break In.
Then, with his heavy masses nt the
ends, he ground tho Torsion wings to
pieces nnd fell upon their center. The
most stubborn fighting, npnrt from the
bnttlo nt tho ships, was probably nt
this spot, half a mile from the shore.
Six thousand four hundred Persians
lay on this plain and along the shore,
while 102 men of Marathon lay wrap
ped In glory on the Held.
It was long suspected thnt the he
roes of Marathon were burled under
the mound, but Mr. Stnls, one of the
Greek cphorl of antiquities, studying
tho plain, came to tho conclusion thnt
the surface of the soil had been raised
by alluvial deposits eight to ten feet
nbove tho level of 400 II. C. In 1800
he drovo a trench with a downward
slant into tho center of tho mound
nnd found tho bones of the heroes
with their weapons bealdo them.

If Completely Submerged They Must
Go to the Bottom.
Answering a correspondent who
writes: "I am very anxious to And out
whether a ship will sink If the bottom
of the ocean Is nt great depth or, at
least, at such depth that the weight of
the water would be greater than the
weight of the ship. It Is the opinion
of many that at a certain depth tho
ship would remain suspended Instead
'of sinking, to tho bottom. Flease ex
plain the exact truth of the matter,"
Edgar Lucion Larkln in the New York
"Any mass that will entirely sink
below the surface of the ocean will
sink to the bottom of any sen or ocean
on earth. This Is because water la al
"Enormous pressure In hydraulic
presses hos been made npon distilled
and also upon sea water, and the di
minution of volume that Is, Increase
of density Is only 0.000044 for ocean
water for each atmosphere, 1. e., each
addition of fifteen pounds to each
square Inch. Then water soaked wood
would bo Increased In density by very
nearly the same amount.
"Hence If all of the wood In a wood
en ship sinks below the surface It must
go to the bottom. The question of
reaching the bottom of the ocean Is de
cided for any kind of matter of any
ship or boat by its behavior at the sur
face. If all of the material of the boat
sinks at all below the surface, then It
will fall to the bottom of any sea, there

Height of Waves.
Among the most trustworthy scien
tific measurements of ocean waves are
those of Lleutenunt I'arls of the
French navy. The highest 'waves
measured by him were in tho Indian
ocean between tho Cape of Good Hope
and tho island of St. Paul. Thirty
waves measured during a northwest
gale there averaged twenty-nlue and
one-half feet in height, and six of
them, following one another wit
beautiful regularity, were thlrty-eoven
and one-half feet in height Some still
higher waves were seon, but not meas
ured. In a moderate breeze the length
of a wave was found to be about
twenty-flve times Its height, but in a
gale Only eighteen times. London
A Kind Wish For Mother.

ROYAL ETIQUETTE IN JAPAN.
A Member of the Imperial Family Can
Die Only In Tokyo.
Surely there never was a more grim
Journey made than that of the dow
ager empress of Japan when sho came
for the last time to Tokyo.
Sho had died in her pnlnco in the
country. But tho Japanese hold that
a member of tho imperial family can
die nowhere except in Tokyo. There
fore tho dead empress, theoretically
still alive, Journeyed from her country
place to tho palace In Tokyo with all
the ceremonial that attended her move
ments when living.
Sho traveled In the royal railway car
and was driven through the streets to
tho palace in a court carriage with
the blinds closely drawn. The minis
ters nnd high state officials who greet
ed her on her past arrivals in tho capi
tal were at the station us usual and
showed in no way that on this occa
sion they were meeting the corpse of
Troops lined the streets nnd present

crowds in tho streets, standing in si
lence instend of loudly cheering, be

Cicero's "Do Orntoro," nnd some pas
sage suggested to him tho expediency
of making tho improvement of his
health his study. "I rose from my
book," ho writes, "stood bolt upright
and determined to bo woll. In pursu
ance of my resolution I tried many ex
tremes, was guilty of mnny absurdities
and committed many errors amid the
remonstrances nnd ridicule' of those
around me. I persevered, neverthe
less, nnd It Is now, I believe, full six

cal advice or taken any medlclno or
anything whatever by way of medi
