Saturn and Jupiter now adorn the
morning" sky and qre called the morning
stars. They will be the sun's bright
harbingers during the whole summer,
and will amply repay, by their beautiful
appearance, the eany riser who watches
for their advent in the small hours before
The same planets were evening stars
during the winter and spring until they
reached conjunction with the sun,
Saturn on the 6th, and Jupiter on the
30th, of May. They were then close to
the sun, or seemed so as viewed in the
heavens, for when we speak of the position
of the heavenly bodies we mean
their position as seen from the earth.
Thus we say that the sun rises and sets,
when it is the movement of the earth on
her axis that produces this result, and
that the planets are in conjunction with
each other when in reality they are millions
of miles apart.
In describing the pnets, we always
refer to their position in the heavens as
seen from the earth. Saturn and Jupiter
were close to the sun in the month
of May, passed from his eastern to his
western side, and were then too near
him to be seen. They have since moved
far enough away to be visible in the
morning sky before sunrise, and will
continue to increase their distance from
the sun, and to approach the earth until
they reach opposition, Saturn in November
and Jupiter in They
will then in like manner pass to the
sun's eastern side, becoming evening
stars and repeat the same process in reversed
order until they reach conjunction
It will be easy to follow the track ot
the outer planets when this simple law
of their movements is once impressed
upon the memory. Saturn and Jupiter
are now brilliant illustrations as they
rise earlier and increase in size ami
brightness while drawing nearer to the
Saturn, during the last week in June,
will rise about two o'clock. He must
be looked for seven degrees south of the
point where the sun rises, and will be
Known by his pale, steady light as well
as by forming a triangle with the Pleiades
and Aldebaran, being a few degrees
west of them. Jupiter will rise sooh
after three o'clock, one degree south of
the sunrise point and a few degrees east
of Aldebaran. He is much the larger
of the two planets and will be recognized
at a glance. They will be so far
from the sun by the last of July, that
Saturn will rise at midnight and Jupiter
an hour after. Those who watch the
starlit sky during the silent hours when
darkness shrouds the ear:h will find that
these beaming planets are the fairest
gems in Nights starry crown. Youths'
Frauds in lSrandlcs.
They arc chielly practiced with inferior
spirits in order to make them pass
for cognac. It is many years now since
the svnaller .growers began to add to
their wines before distilling a certain
quantity of inferior cognac or other
spirit, such as Montpelicr brandy, or
barley, beetroot, molasses, rice, or potato
spirit. Such is the richness in
aroma of the pure and true cognac that

taster indeed, gifted with a
most sensitive palate; detection is
easier when the foreign spirit is added
after instead of bofore distillation.

Test of true love: "Is there anything
I can do to satisfy you that the
aflection I have confessed for you is real
any further proof that I can give of
my sincerity and dovotion?" exclaimed
the youth, passionately. The face of

There are various ways in which deceptions
are practised. For instance,
"unlettered India proof," aa it is
technically called, is, from being taken
off the engraving at an earlier stage,
very much superior to what ia called a
' lettered India. print," which is obtained
after many impressions have been, taken
off the engraving, and when the plate
has, consequently, become worn, and
the picture lost its clearness and sharpness
of line. To turn an "India print,"
therefore, into an "India proof," the
India print is cut down all round close
to the engraving. A clean sheet of
India paper, of the same tone as the
! India print, but of "a larger size, so as to
show a clean, blank margin, is then
mounted on a piece of still larger plain
paper, and the cut down India print in
turn is mounted in such a position as' to
show the usual margin all round. Before
drying, the manipulated print is subjected
to immense pressure, which bo
forces the mounted print into the India
paper as to entirely hide the difference
in the thickness of the material. A true
impression taken off a plate leaves the
mark of the plate all round the picture;
and to add this to the " doctored" India
proof, a plain steel or copper plate of
the proper size is laid on the face of the
print, which is again subjected to pressure,
and the deception is then so complete
as almost to baffle detection. A
volume belonging to a colleotor was supposed
to contain India paper impressions
of engravings to the value of 300, but
on examination they were found to be
"dootored" plates, not worth 30 in
all. Cha' ibej'8' Journal.
