The electric light is reported to

The Moon and the Earth.
A reader who signs bimself
of the Boys" asks what he evidently
thinks are some funny questions about
a statement that appeared in the Com
panion to the effect that the earth lost
considerable territory when it parted
with the moon. As an answer to some
of his questions we will give the
theory of the formation of worlds that
is at present accepted by astronomers,
for the benefit of interested readers.
Millions of years ago a vast mass of
fiery nebulous matter is supposed to
have filled and extended far beyond
the space now occupied by the sun and
his family of worlds.
As ages rolled on changes took place
in this vaporous mass. The inner
and larger portion condensed and took
form as the central sun, and the outer
portion contracted into concentric
rings, which in process of time be
came planets and satellites ; sun
planets and moons being indissolubly
bound together and forming our solar
No astronomer has yet found out
the way by which this result was
brought about, or why the earth should
have but one moon, while Saturn re
joices in eight moons beside his won
This, in a few Drief words, is the
foundation of what is known as the
nebular hypothesis or the theory that
ages ago our system was a mass of fiery
vapor, that in cooling has condensed
into globular masses or worlds, that we
call sun, planets and their moons
Most of these worlds are still cooling
off to the stage which .ill matter must
reach, the general law being the larger
the body the longer it will take to cool.
Thus the moon, being smaller than
the earth, has cooled off nntil it is a
dead world unfit to sustain life. The
earth, millions of years hence, unless
interferences that are contingent occur,
will be in the same condition. Even
the sun himself will ages hence lose
his light and heat.
One of the Boys" will see that im
mense periods have elapsed since the
moon in the cooling process "sloughed
off' from the earth, and that his ques
tions are connected with one of the
most- difficult problems of astronomy.
If "all of the boys" will study this
grand and ennobling science they will
find material for unending interest and
entertainment in the fsiscinating and
marvelous truths it reveals. xoutn's

announced a vacancy in CJongress in
the following fashion : " Neither of
