Carlotoncolli'Ko observatory him jtut
Aocurcd a cnrinna Instrument invcnti'd
by n eciotitlnt nt Washington niul called
n "personal equation liincliluo."
Tho object of thu Instrument Is to
harmonize tliu observations of different
pot-mmi who nro working together, nt
different limps or at tho H.imo time. Ar
tronomcrfl wolf know Hint no two ior
boiib Beo exactly nllko, by which is mount,
for example, no two persons will nay
that n star passes n wire in n telescopo
nt exactly tho samo Instant. Ono will
record its apparent p.issago slow on
trno time, while another will nhnost uni
formly put itn timo fast.
Observers unconsciously form a habit
of sccltiir objects, fast or Blow, on truo I
timo, and tho belter tho observers nro I
tho moro steady thiscrror isna compared
with true time. This error tho astron
omer calls tho p'TMinnl equation of tho i
observer. In muonnt tho personal equa- !
tion varies from O.CU of a second of timo
to something more than half a second
for different observers, cither fast or
alow on truo time. Such urinrs as these
cannot bo toler.iled at all in astronom
ical observations tor fundamental or
original work of a nice kind, but must
bo in Bomo way eliminated beforo tlnal
reductions can bu attempted.
To accomplish this, in ono way, an in
genious machino has beon constructed
which sets in motion an artificial star,
quite liko tho nppeaianco of a real star
in tho telescope. As thin artificial star
p.isses wires in tho machine tho observer
records his observations, and tho instru
ment automatically records the exact
time of tho real passago of tho star over
tho samo wires. Now both records aro
made by tho aid of tho electric current,
and consequently are perfectly true.
These rccoids aro taken automatically
in ink ori- an instrument called a chro
nometer, and henco their differences can
bo measured with tho utmost accuracy,
nnd in this way tho errors of tho obsor
ver on truo timo uio known.
Tho machine is in uso every night that
observers work either together or singly,
so that' changes in individual personal
equations may bo detected, as well as tho
differences that may exist between ob
servers. Tho instrument, therefore, fur
nishes an uuvaryiug standurd for accu
rate observations. Cor. St. Paul Pio

Listen to what an experienced master
plumber has to say:
-"The amount of dust and dirt that
will collect in furnaco pipes can only be
realized by thoso who have had occasion
to clean them out. Most furnaces that
have been in Ubo for soma timo become
covered with dust, and it is not surpris
ing that when tho furnace is heated to a
red heat somo sort of smell should be
given out. Tho 'burnt smell' may bo
warning to us not to breathe it. When
meat has not a good odor wo do not caro
to eat it, and it might be a good plan
not to breathe air that does not smell as
fresh as it should.
"The pipes should all bo swabbed out
with a largo carriage sponge fastened to
a flexible wire that will go into tho
bends, and tho amount and quality of
unclean stuff it will bring up will satis
fy any one of the necessity of this clean
ing. If it is i repeated onco a week
through tho winter there will be little
complaint to make about the dust from
tho furnace, and tho improvement in the
air will be noticed by every ono." Shir
ley Dare's Letter.
Has It porno to Stay?
From all "sides ono hears nothing but
questions as to tho futuro of the pneu
matic tire. That theoretically it is per-
feet has been granted up to the
present moment. Now, a writer in
one of tho cycling papers gravely
remarks that thero is a vibration ap
parent when it is ridden over the
roughest of rough paving, he having felt
it in his finger endsl while another, at
great length, discusses .the fact that a
numbness crept over his legs, and acute
pains came on in the soles of his feet' so
badly in tho last twenty miles of a hun
dred inilos road race that he had to ride
with his insteps on tho pedals; he at-
uiuura nils iu luu viurauuu pruiuicuu
by rat trap pedals when applied to the
His explanation for being played out
and exhausted is really quite ingenious.
Tho most damaging piece of evidence
against tho pneumatio tire, however, is
that Mr. J, B. Dunlap, its inventor, is
said to bo at work on a new tire some-
what liko a cushion. Pall Mall Gazette.
Tho Clothes of tho Comte do 1'arU.
The Comte do Paris is a striking figure
of a well diessed man. When he stroll9
abroad upon tho American pave he walks
slightly in advance of his suite, as tho
king of Franco was wont to stroll through
tho gardens of the Tuileries. But this
is all tho distinction that he takes to
himself, being altogether republican in
his demeanor. When I saw him ono fine
Sunday morning ho, was dressed in a
dark double breasted frock coat and
wore gray trousers. Tho high silk hat,
albeit well polished, was not of tho cur
rent block, and was probably of the
vintago of somo bygono year when his
favorite madeira was cellared under a
monarchical government. Clothier and

A curious accident occurred to tho lo

Ovide Musin, tho violinist, was tho
victim of an odd accident recently, Ills
concert company wns about to begin tho
evening entertainment at tlio Mtirey
Avenue Baptist church in Brooklyn, and
Mr. Mtibiu, arrayed in faultless ovoning
dress, thought that ho would vlow the
audienco without being seen. To ac
complish hia purpose he stepped behind
a curtain which huug hack of tho plat
form. There was a bplash, and tho vio
linist found himself in three feet of
water. He emerged n very wet nnd
angry man. Mr. Musin had inadvertent
ly stepped into the baptismal font
It was after 8 o'clock and tho concert
had begun. A young man came to the
violinist's rescue, however, and paid that
ho would provide Mr. Musin with n thy
outfit. But it was half an hour before
ho did, and Mr. Musin was several min
utes lato in making his appearance. The
now trousers fitted him rather awkward- L
ly, and ho was not in n pleasant frame
of mind, but he got through with his
part of tho programme, and tho audienco
probably is still ignorant of tho fact that
ho had fallen Into tho font. New York
