instantly recognized this?hence our big sales of SUPREME quality Washington Crisps to millions and millions of Americans. Every
family in America, which REALLY wants to REDUCE THE HIGH COST OF LIVING, should support, by their patronage and
influence, PURE food mills which give MORE pure food, of SUPREME quality, for the same money.

OF UNIVERSE NEW
Astronomers at Nacional Obser?
vatory Engrossed by Views
w'aah'ng ton, June 24.?A new and
amazing theory of the untverse Is. put
forward by Professor H. If. Turner,
of tho Royal Astronomical Society of
Knglund. He holds that the whole
community of stars. numbering, he
estimates, about 1,000. ooo.oo'i, is
suspended In space In the shape of a
somewhat flattened globe, with the
Milky Way for Its equatorial belt.
Astronomers at the National Oh
Bervatory lure are engrossed by Pro?
fessor Turner's view, which, they say,
explains in a new way Professor
Kapetyn'a theory that the universe is
composed of two vast parallel streams
Of stars moving In opposite directions.
"If," says Professor Turner, "the
earth's distance from the sun ho re?
presented by ono 'nch, the nearest
tixed star would he about five miles
away. The whole community of stars
would then be about the present size
of our earth and would contain about
a thousand million Strs In all. scatter?
ed at distances somo miles apart, more
widely near the surface.
"The general shape Is not spherical.
Our earth Is flattened at tho poles, and
the star community Ik probably more
flattened. Put a more serious differ?
ence Is thnt whereas our earth has for
equator only an Imaginary line, the
star community has a very real and
magnificent belt of extra stars, which
we call the Milky Way.
"Turning from dimensions and Shape
to Internal history, wo shall find a
more convenient contrast In the solar
system. Wo arc accustomed to the
absolute tyranny of tho sun, to whose,
control wo all submit, keeping at as?
signed distances from him and receiving
benefits In the shape of light and heat.
Put the stnr community Is a pure de?
mocracy, where control Is vested In the
community nt large, though Its effect?
ive seat Is In their centre.
"No particular light or heat erna?
nntes from the seat of government,
which Is, how-evor, occupied for n brief
spell by every star In turu- The outer?
most are urged toward the contre by a
unanimous vote, hut ns they respond
to tho behest they gradually become
indifferont to the contrary calls of the
outer stars and are affected only* by
those nearer the centre than them?
selves. The contre is, however, only
reacheel to be abandoued, and llie jour?
ney continues to the other side of the
cluster, when tho return commences.
But the majority of the stars do not
. make, iJhk?-?.xtrem.? Journey.. fThey ftre
i content tv-ith smaller excursions from
hide to aide. Our nun is one of these,
' and probably never ??.trays further than
a quarter of the far limits. Our Wbolo
j oscillation. If may trust precarious
j estimates, is about 400,300,000 years,
and we passed near the centr-?which
lies in the constellation Taurus, at -l
distance of about ninoty light years
from us?something under a million
years ago. In this more crowded re?
gion did we meet with vicissitudes of
Interest to geologists ?'"
According to Professor Turner's pica,
tho titare, with their satellites and
planetary systems, travel back and
forth front one side to the other of ih*
star community, not in ordinary ellip?
tical orbits, but l very much flattened
ellipses, a ml their pendulum-like swing
is due to the preponderating attraction
of the star masses at the centre of the
Ills notion that no particular light
or heat emanates from the ".seal of
government"?thnt Is, the central part
of the star community?raises a query
?which no astronomer here is compe?
tent to answer.
What then Is there at the centre of
the unlv crse? .May it be tin; throne
of a supreme Intelligence that rules
creation? There Is at least no evi?
dence to the contrary.
The chance that any two of the bil?
lion stars will smash into each other
In their oscillat'ons is very small.
Professor Turner thinks. As to tha
actual dimensions of the star com?
munity, the mileage is too stupendous
for the common mind to contemplate.
The diameter of the community would
approximate 86,000,000 miles (the dis?
tance from the earth to the sum k
6,1,360 (the number of inches in a,
mile x S.oitO (the diameter of the.
eurth) ? 48.153,600,000.000.000, or over
forty-eight quintilllon miles.
The distances in the universe are go
vast thnt no telescope has ever actual?
ly revealed the disc of a fixed star.
All that is shown In the most power?
ful reflector Is a mere point of light
without any definite outline. Each
fixed star Is regarded by astronomers
as a sun. the centre of Its own plane?
