Tho Earth nml tho Moon.
Once upon a time, many millions of
years ago, the Earth and Moon,' then
young, hot and plastic, were very near
each other, revolving around their com
mon center of gravity once in from
three to six hours, and also whirling
on their axes in the same time, so as to
keep always Probably at
sjme time before this they had formed
a single mass, which on account of
some unevenness of density or figure,
separated into two under the rapid ro
tation. But starting from the condition
first named when day and month were
equal and each about four hours long,
Mr. Darwin has shown that it is essen
tially an unstable state of affairs, and
that if the Moon were brought ever so
little nearer to the Earth, it would then
draw closer and closer with ever-in
creasing speed, until at last it would rejoin
the parent mass; but if, on the
other hand, its distance from the Earth
were ever so slightly increased, then it
would bcein to recede, and would
slowly withdraw farther and farther
from the Earth. As it recedes both
day and month will lengthen: the
month at first most rapidly and then
the day, until finally, in some far dis
tant future, a condition of stable equilibrium
will be attained when day and
month will again equal each other, the
period then being something less than
sixty of our present days, and the corresponding
distance of the Moon about
60 per cent greater than at present.
After that, so far as their mutual interaction
is concerned, there will be no
farther change, but mother and daughter
will live forever happily apart.
Professor Young, in Princeton Review.
The famous Burmese ponies are not
Burmese at all, but Shan, and are
brought down from the confines of
China, some 400 or 500 miles beyond
our frontier. They are very sure-footed,
and many of them are perfectly beautiful
in symmetry. They are speedy for
their size, and wonderful jumpers;
they are very docile, for they are like
the pure Arabs handled from their
birth, and only require shoeing when
brought upon the macadamized roads.
They have a good deal of Arab blood
in them, too, for a bhan has as keen an
eye for a horse as a Yorkshireman, and
many of them purchased officers Arab
chargers in days gone by, and took them
to their own country. The ordinary
Burman pony is very like the "tat" of
India, but they get through a lot of
work, and a Burman will perfer one of
his own breed to thatof the
ably because they cost a tenth of what
is asked for the latter ; but they are
hardier, and will live where a Shan nonv
would ttvrve. The saddles, bridles
and strrups in use among the Burmese
are very peculiar. A Burman rides
principally by balance ; the knees are
well away from the saddle, and when
necessary they hold on by their heels.
Only the great toe is inserted in the
stirrup. Ungainly and unsafe as appears
their seat, they oet over the
ground wonderfully well and seldom fall
off. The ponies are'all taueht to amble.
and a good pacer will fetch a long price.
All the Year Round.
A Now Muslool Instrument.
The "Pyrophone" is the latest
musical invention. It is a novel instrument,
constructed to make music
from gas. Its compass is three octaves
with a keyboard, and it will be
played in the same manner as an organ,
It has thirty-seven glass tubes, in which

a number of gas jets burn. These
jets, placed in circles, contract and ex
pand like the fingers of a hand.
When the small burners separate
the sound is produced; when they
close together the sound ceases. "The
tone depends upon the number ot the
burners and the size of the pipes in
which they burn, so that, by a careful
arrangement and selection, all the
notes of the musical scale may be produced
in several octaves. Some of
the glass tubes in which the jets burn
are nearly eleven feet high. When the
"Pjrophone is played upon with the
keyboard it gives out a rich, full tone
of remarkable delicacy, and to a great
extent resembling the human voice.
Yankee Doodle. Numerousclaims
to the authorship and birthplace of this
soul-stirring signal in song have been
made since the nation first Svoke to her
importance, and ever since then some
native Americans have stoutly asserted
that the song is not an American one;
notably the accomplished Duyckinck
mothers, m their popular "Cyclopedia
of American Literature." These genial
ficntlemen claim the sontr and its
rnythm for Holland, and print "Yankee
didel dudel down, didel dudel lanter"
as having been in vogue in Dutchland
years and years ago, and was the refrain
of the Dutch garden-sauce planters and
gatherers before Columbus thought of
