j> Thjs Forgiving Wife %^

? 4********* KNOW a woman who has just come home from a long visit
? " . * to Europe.
S* She didn't go on the visit for pleasure; her young
JL * daughter was ill and she took her daughter abroad to save
J J her Ufe.
*'?"*WH"** When my friend came home from abroad she noticed
something peculiar about the way her friends greeted her.
They seemed to be sorry for her some way, though none
of them said anything in so many , words.
One day my friend found out what it was that made them sorry.
Her husband had had a foolish little affair with a foolish little woman
wd there had been a little scandal about it.
My friend loves her husband and he loves her., So she went to him and
said: "Dear, you are worried; you are in trouble; you think I'm going to find
something out and be angry with you.
, "I have found it out and I am not angry with you. I am sorry for you.
I want you to know that I am not only your wife, I am the best friend, the
most loyal, the m?st unselfish Ind the truest friend you have in the world.
I will stand by you through this thing. I know that you have not been really
ialtMess to me; you have just been foolish; you are heartsick over the whole
thing now; so am L Come, let's be heartsick together."
And the husband of my friend looked at her as if he heard some one
speaking from aq open grave, and he told his wife the whole truth, the fool
ish, silly, miserable truth, and she talked it all over with him and comforted
him and encouraged him and laughed at him and teased him, and together
they faced the whole thing through-and to-day you couldn't lure that man
away from his wife with any siren who ever sang, or any Salome who ever
?reamed a dream of dancing.

What Causes the Tides ?
By Edgar Lucien Larkin,
Of the Lowe Observatory, Echo Mountain, CaL
HE tides nave been studied wtih great care and labor during
three, centuries, and are not yet completely understood -by
- astronomers. Any point on earth moves from west to east
. around to the same location in space in a period of twenty
four hours. The moon goes around the earth in a period
of 27.32166 days. Let the moon and a star be on the same
straight line at exact noon; then, of course, they would
cross the meridian together. In twenty-four hours the star will
cross it again, but you will have to wait fifty-two minutes
longer for the moon to cross, it having moved eastward through a space re
quiring thal length, of time to traverse. The- moon attracts by the law of
gravitation, and, being a dead planet, has no effect on attractive force. And
this attraction heaps up water directly under it in the ocean. But there is
another heap on the exact opposite side of the earth away from the moon.
This is because the moon attract? the whole earth away from the water,
leaving it behind in a heap Of pile or elevation. The tide day is therefore 24
ihours 52 minutes long. High, tides will be at both sides of the earth at the
same time, and, of course, low tides at distances of 90 degrees each way, or at
points one?ourti the circumference o? the earth from the high heaps. Tides
axe caused by differences in the intensity of the moon's attraction on water
on the side of :he earth nearest to it and farthest away and also between
these attractions and the attraction exerted on the centre o' the earth. The
sun also causes tides. These combine with the lunar and call into use th?
most intricate mathematics to compute heights and times of high and low.
Experts In ^
k AlpineMountain Climbing k
Cy Day Allen Willey
OMB ct the guides are experts in climbing. There are a
number who are noted for their skill in what the Alpinist
calls "snow and Ice work." That means going* up a peak
which has so many snow fields and glaciers that its sides
and summits may be nearly covered with them. The gla
der guide can tell you all about "cornices"-snow masses
f^^L which project from the edge of precipices and overhang the
?* ? jl valley beneath like the roof of a house. Experience has
told him whether a cornice can. be crossed safely or wheth
er it may break off if one ventures upon lt He is also an expert with the
ice axe carried in his belt cutting footholds in the glittering wails that may
rise fifty or a hundred feet above your head. These ice precipices are
frequently found at the heads of glaciers, which, as the schoolboy knows, are
merely rivers of frozen water slowing moving down the face of a mountain on
account of the force cf gravity and the great pressure of the ice masses
which form their source on the upper part of the slope. Other guides make
a specialty of "rock work," conducting persons up peaks which may be only
partly covered with snow and ice, but having sides of bare rock so steep that
in places the cliffs may be almost straight up and down. Here it would seem
that one must be os spry and as sure-footed as the chamois-the rare goat
that lives up amid the Alps. While the crevasse and other dangers of the
snow and ice fields may be absent, the mountain may be so abrupt that the
climber must ascend hundreds of feet pulling himself up with his arms aiding
his legs, while often the guide hauls him to the top of the most difficult slopes
by main strength-St Nicholas.
The Law of the Lower Sky
Some Remarks on the Landowner's Rights
as Against the Aeronaut
By Hyacinthe Ringrose
VERY lawyer with his heart in his subtle trade is looking
eagerly for the first suit against an air skipper for trespass.
When balloons first began to float over fields and houses
the great question was raised and pushed aside by a Lord
Chief Justice oTEngland as something which might be left
for posterity to settle. The common law ls clear enough an
to the ownership of the air above the land, some genius with
a taste for definition having given us the maxim that the
owner of the soil is the owner of all between it and heaven,
as well as all between it and the earth's core or centre.
If an airship or anything from it falls onto a man's land, he can maintain
an action for trespass "qnare clausuni fregit"-that is to say, for "breaking
him close." .
Beyond this, there ia mach airship law to be made anent natural rights,
ownership and actual occupancy of the air. So long as the flying man soars
in the upper air no one will grudge him his place among the swallows^ but
the market gardener who notes .the uncertain ricochetting with uncertain
wings a'few yards above, the glass of his frames will soon demand a legal
answer to the question which Lord Ellenborough dodged so successfully.
"Clarence," she said, "what a splen
did Minister to China yon would

pay for the loss of life and interests
which your government has caused
with fts irregular proceedings.

adopted at once the mediation offered

Laudation to His Holy name,

Not that He came in splendor-flame,
Nor like a king of earth;
Not that the banners waved on high,
The cymbals clashed His praise;
But that alone the starry sky
Led to His humble dais!
Laudation to His purpose mild,
Who came not unto men
Except as.tomes a little child
With far, wide-wandering ken;
Who came not panoplied in gold,
With sword and shield of might. ,|
But in His mother's sweet enfold
A rose-bloom of the night!
Laudation to His deathless soul,

But that God's arm around him stole
As soft as angel's wing.
Not that the thunder of His tread
Shoo* cities to their doom,.
But that beneath His feet the dead
Were touched to deathless bloom!
Not for the conqueror's mail-clad hand
Nor for the victor's sword;
Not for the chieftain of a hand,
A wild, world-sundering horde;
Lift the hosanna of the years,
Utter the golden song,
For this, the foeman of our tears
And for all human wrong!
Aye, for a life that came to lead
All life toward the ann;
And for a heart that came to bleed
For tasks that love had done;
A life that gave that gifts might bless
All sweets of life; to be-'
This brother of the brotherless
Dear friend to you and me!
Laudation to His holy name!
Through all the ages cry
The exaltation of His fame
Unto the Christmas sky
Not that He rose as princes rise,
Unto life's fleeting power;

He bloomed as blooms a flower!
