tii. uoailomy of seU'iioo, to bu given as
,i prize to anyone who shall discover
m means ot communicating with an
t iit orld, planet or star. Tho planet
M ip, was suggested In the will as the
m ist convenient heat only body on
bu h to make the experiment.
This proposition may seem rldic-
n uis, but it is not any more so than the
a of ilames Licit, tho foiimler of the
I i, k observatory," said a man well
i rs.'d in starry lore.
The l.iek lequest to build tho great

let us consider the dilllcultlcs in
tin- way of this project. TITo distance

I ir science that u man can be fairly
distinguished by the eye at a mile's dis
tiiue in making calculations regard
m vision it Is the general rule to esti
mate that to lie seen a milo away an ob
n -t must bo half a yard wide. The
k st telescope has a magnifying power
f .'000 diameters. Half the distance
i the moon is 1:20,000 miles. Divide
t'ns by -,000, the magnifying power of
' i rlas.s, and you get sixty yards as the
milium sue of an object in tho moon
I , . rnlblc by the nld of the telescopo
t im the earth. So an object must bo
VI r.-et wide or thick to lie. more than
,i'i appreciable dot. I have made the

Now, as to the proposed oommnnl
at ion with Jlars. At tho timo when
M irs and the earth are nearest to each
t ii-r are in iorihelion-tho distance
- in round numbers :5",000,0OO of miles.
I nke half this distance and you have
.oo.OiiO as the number of yards that
ri presents tho sire of nn object In Mars
' tuit could be seen that distance with
u naked eye. Divide this by tt.OOO, the
inner of the biggest telescope, and you
iave 8 7"0ns the size of the smallest ob
H -t plainly discernible at such a ills-
iiiiee w ith the telescope. This Is equal
nliout five miles.
' n object In the planet Mars could
be perceived as a little larger than a
lot with the aid of the largest refrac
t ir and under tho most favorable, in
f.ii t absolutely perfect, atmospheric
i'l fitber conditions if It was live miles
ii bameter. This is when tho planet Is
in iirest to us. On tho other hand, at
tli.it time nothing on the earth could be
discerned from Mars, because the earth
would bo in a straight line between the
tuo and in tho blaze of the sun's light.
n inhabitant of that planet would
hae to wait until tho earth wns In
some other part of its orbit, and the
distance between the eartli and Mars
would then be many times as great as
in perihelion. So it would be necessary
I I coastruct an object, to bo discernible
hi the earth from Mars, sty twenty
miles in diameter. It might be circu
lar in form. Other structures not in
fiTior in size would have to Ik) erected
it distances of not less than twenty
miles from each other. Then lifter these
bail remained for a time their relative
ixisitioiis might bo changed. These
ImmIios. moreover, to bo clearly dis
in'uishcd from the surface of .Mars,
must ho Intensely luminous. A bolid
lull of electric light twenty miles in
diameter would sulllce.
( onsidering the sue of the structure

'ind the necessity of changing their
piaces to Indicate to a man in Mars that
these luminous structures were tho re
sult of Intelligent action nro not
natural phenomenal The sum be
qwMthcd by the French nun may lie
n to bo greatly inadequate. The Aca
! my of .Science at I'arls may for this
" ison refuse to accept the bequest. If
'h sum were offered for a prize essay
m some plan for accomplishing com
munication with u sister sphere It would
'h more reasonable.
In all the above computations It
must not 1k forgotten that all the con-
1 'ions must bo ftnorable, the atmos
fin re ns well as the relative positions
,f ' h earth and Mars. Such perfect
' itions happen only onco In a great

Th'cro Is n young lawyer lu this citv
says the Now York Times, who does
little lllernry work outside of his pro
fession, who got himself a typewriter
as an nld to his labors, und now hu SIVh
that ho Is on tho verge of insanity.
And he lays it all to tho typewriter.
W lien ho llrst sat down to the machine
he says, ho thought that it would bo nil
easy thing to master if, but in a few
moments his hands were going round in
circles over It In vain attempts to ilnd
the letter that he wanted.
That was only the beginning, how
ever, for taking tho matter up on n
sclentiflu basis ho set out to learn the
exact location of nil tho keys, lty tho
end of the first day every word that hu
uim.i in i-uiivcnniion set him to figur
ing out where each letter would be on
his key board whether in tho llrst row,
or the second, or tho third, or on tho
left or tho right of the middle lino of
tho keyboard. And then ho would try
to recall what little disc ho had to
strike 1 mako n per cent, mark, and
what for tho dollar sign, and what for
quotation marks, and what for a dozen
other marks, each ono of which had to
bo inndit in a special way.
And at tho end of two months of prac
tice, when ho could strike olT tho
words at a rate that made the machine
rattle, and was beginning to think that
he was quite an operator, he sat down
for a little test. Ho had a friend to
read to him, and for two minutes wrote
with his pen. Tho result was thirty
words for each minute, written very
legibly. Then he tackled the type
writer. The machine made a great
racket, and he thought that he must bo
making a now record.
When tho second two minutes were
up the perspiration was dropping from
his brow. Tho count showed to the
credit of the second test just forty
words, and of them just nineteen were
spelled wrongly through the striking of
w rong keys, and which had to bo cor
rected A typewriter little used may bo
obtuindl at a very low figure.
HIS RAMROD CUR'

(lot Anotber lioctor.
A young doctor in Piscataquis county
has covered himself with glory by in
troducing a startling and novel feature
In medics, says the Lcwiston Journal.
It nppcurs that a woman in that
countv ifot a fish Wine far enough down
in her Piront to scare her into hysterics,
but not far enough down to feel entirely
comfortable. The aforesaid young phy
sician was nearest at hand and was
summoned in a hurry. He looked the
patient over carefully and wisely and
started for the woodshed. There was
the handle of a bow-whip In a corner.
With this in hand ho made, tracks for
the patient. To tho anxious husband
he made known that he was going to
come the ramrod act aud shove that re
fractory bone w hero It properly should
The man objected, and so did the
woman, mine enthusiasticilly.
"In tho first place," said tho former,
"that handle is too large."
"Oh, we'll fix that easily enough,"
confidently predicted tho doctor; "I'll
just saw that handle off up at this fer
ltut even this dolieato concession did
not suit the scruples of that refractory
husband "I've heern tell of duln' that
to a cow with u turnip stuck in her gul
let, but I'll be darned of I'll let you tr.
it on my wife. , (Juess you'll have to
conjure up homo other plan, doc."
Hut doj couldn't, and another phy
sician v. .us ! unted up, who remotcd the
bone without iccourse to ramrods.
DOOMING IN GEORGIA.
, Tlie Daiiircr of HriKtrlnir. on l'roporty In
I heard an amusing conversation re
cently between two propel ty-holdcrs,
. iv i a wi Iter in the Augusta Chronicle.
DiK' was spc-iking of Improved values
of property around Augusta, when he
i.iid: "A real estate holder In Augusta
is afraid t try to bojm his property for
feai of having his tax assessment In
creased. If ti man goes out on the street
and makes the innocent remark that he
wouldn't take twenty-five thousand dol
lars for certain property up goes the as
sessiuentto twenty-five thousand dol
lars even though he couldn't get twenty
thousan I dollars for it."
The other speaker said: "One day I
had some friends at my house to dine.
During the diuner I was us'ted what my
place was .vorth and we wero all feel
ing (food and I wanted the value of the
place to sound well, so I gave"omo ex
travagant figure which I could never
have gotten for it. One of my guests
happened to be a tax assesor and,
would you believe it, my assessment
was increased according, to my rosy
lined, champagne-inspired statement."
The moral seems to be either that a
man had better talk "poor" or else that
tho assessors should take something
more substantial as their basis of as
sessment than a man's after-dinner or
The Wiilimn Illrycllnt.
Jlolvn Lockwood was the first woman
to ride a bicycle in Washington and she
was ridiculed and jeered by lhe multi
tude, and the regulation anathema of
"unsexed woman" was hurled aftor her
by the old fogies of conservatism. Now
Mrs. Eoekwood can ride tho length of
Pennsylvania avenue- and not -a mascu
line head would bo turned. Custom
makes laws as inexorable as those of
the iMcdes and Persians. A bicycle
tournament has just been held in that
city, and the wives and. sweethearts of
tho boys rode their bicycles beside
them, and tho crowds looked on and
approved. Tho world "do move," and
tho wheels help it along.
ToiirIi, but True.
There has been a great deal of talk
about the ferocity of Tip, the big ele
phant In Central park, New York. Hut
those people who happened to bo in the
elephant house at three o'clock the
other afternoon come to the conclusion
that he was very playful. Two men in
company with a little girl had been
feeding tho big fellow lozenges (above
till things ho likes loenges), but tho
stock at hist gave out. Tip waited pa
tiently, when at last a thought struck
him. Ho cautiously advanced his trunk
and in n second had removed ono pf
the 'gentlemen's hats. Ho carefully laid
it down on the hay nnd waited again.
Peanuts were offered him, so were
crackers, but not until the owner of
tho hat had bought more lozenges did
Tip relent, for us boon as he saw them
ho, with a good display of grace, re
turned tho hiit and received a whole
imudful of his favorite sweets in return.
