EGYPT'S GREEN SUN.
A Phenomenon That Was Commented
Upon by the Ancients.
The appearance of a green light at
i sunset was noticed and commented
upon by the ancient Egyptians and
more particularly so because in the
clear air of Egypt the tints of sunset
are peculiarly distinct.
As the sun there descends nearer
and nearer to the horizon and is lm
mensely enlarged and flaming it sud
denly becomes for an instant a bril
liantly green color, and immediately a
B series of green rays suffuses the sky in
many directions, well night to the ze
nith. The same phenomenon appears at
sunrise, but to a smaller extent. Some
times, just as the last part of the sun's
disk vanishes, its color changes from
green to blue, and so also after it has
disappeared the sky near the horizon
often is green, while toward the zenith
it is blue.
This was alluded to in Egyptian
writings. Day was the emblem of life
and night that of death, and the noc
turnal sun, being identified with Osiris.
thus rendered Osiris king of the dead.
The setting sun was green; therefore
Osiris, as the nocturnal deity of the
dead, was painted green. The splendid
coffins of the high priests of Ammon
frequently depict the green sun, and
the funeral deities are all colored
There are innumerable instances in
the Egyptian relics of representations
relative to death being colored green.
The practice undoubtedly arose from
the green lints of sunrise and sunset.
The green sun disk is referred to 5,000
years ago in Egypt. This is the earli

ART AND ARISTOCRACY
By CARL CLAY.
It wasn't remarkable that she cared
so much about nobility, or that she
knew much about art, for in point of
fact she had never seen a nobleman,
and as fir art, it had always been
represented to her by a few columns
in the newspaper, containing allusions
to subjects unfamiliar to her. Then
one day she met the marquis. From
that time her devotion to art and the
aristocracy was remarkable.
A girl friend, a stenographer like
herself, had asked her to visit the
Art institute with her one Wednesday
noon hour. Though she would much
rather have gone to "see about get
ting a hat" she had so great an ad
miration for the friend, who was very
advanced in her views on many sub
jects, that she followed the friend's
lead rather aimlessly through rooms
filled with pictures of the sea, of anl
mals, cows and horses and lovely wo
men dressed as she had never seen
women of her world dressed.
"And this," said her friend, "is
the old master's room."
The term didn't mean much to her
and she thought the old masters an
odd looking company until suddenly,
away off in a corner, she came face
to face with the marquis.
It was not painted eyes that looked
at her from above the heavy ruff; they
were real eyes and they held a strange
fascination for her. Yet she felt al
most ashamed to stare at him and she
wondered that he did not turn his
head away from her plebeian gaze.
There were no more old masters for
her in this room after that; she had
met her master and he dominated her.
She went often to the Art institute
from that time on and she never failed
to pay her respects to the marquis

17 eyes. She liked the aristocratic
sparseness of his hair, the noble
length of his nose, and all the trap
pings of his rank, though these alone
would not account for the strange
spell he cast over her.
One day upon visiting her marquis
she found a young man with his easel
seated in front of him, evidently bent
upon making a copy of him. She re
sented such desecration, but she
watched the worker with growing in
"I don't see how you have the cour
age," she ventured to say to him at
He was a good looking young man
with hair as abundant as the marquis'
was sparse. He smiled at her.
"You mean that I am too artstically
impudent?" he asked
"No, not that I shouldn't think you
could endure to see him watch you
and analyse you and sneer at you as
he is always sneerting at every one he
"Oh, he's harmless," answered the
painter, merrily. Then both grew
silent as another pair of remarkable
eyes begsan to assume shape and eu
preslon on the painter's canuvas.
She came two or three times a week
and in that corner of the master's
room they made quite a gay company,
the marquis on the wall, his double
on the easel and the two ardent ad
mirers of these twin noblemen.
It is very easy to transfer your
admiration of art to the creator of
that art. Therefore, by the time the
picture on the easel was finished she
had not only come to believe that
the copy was as fine as the original,
but to believe that another Peter
Paul Rubens had appeared upon the
horison of art.
Now when their friends ask who is
the subject of the picture that hangs

A DARK, FOGGY NIGHT
By J. N. PHILLIP$.
"Won't you tell us a sailor's yarn?"'
asked the new boarder of the bos'n.
The bos'n took a big drink of water
and began: "When I was a pirut-"
"A pirate!" gasped the new board
"Yes. I used to be a ptrut. It isn't
generally known, but I was. I sailed
the Sorry Sue as a pirut."
"How did you come to give it up?"
"That's just what I was getting
ready to tell you-how I come to give
up pirutin'. We had been livin' high
for seven months on the gold which
we'd taken out of a church at Juana

We hadn't done any pirutin' nor

fleet of warships if necessary, just to
show me they were game. I figured
out that they would scuttle the next
ship in good shape.
"We didn't have long to wait for a
ship to scuttle. It was a dark, fog
gy night. The boys were asleep down
below. I was able to lash our ship
alongside the other craft that we
were to scuttle without anybody else
knowing anything about it.

aboard our prize and opened the door

one of the boys made a break for
our own ship and when they saw
that we were lashed tight to that dla
bollecal craft so we couldn't get
away, they ran and jumped into the

I had had any sense I would have

"But what was that noise?" asked
the new boarder.
"Lady," said the bos'n, It was a

There was a million different sounds

Among these customs perhaps the
strangest is betrothal and marriage
among the Moors. There is no such
thing as a courtship among them. Mar

but once. The young, especially girls
on the threshold of womanhood. are'
prone to succumb before a single glance'

and southern races are more liable to
this than colder blooded peoples of t he
north. Ayxa in crossing that much
frequented bridge uniting two parts of
Constantinople, stopped to look down
over the side into the water. While
doing so she uncovered her face. since
there was no man below to see it.
Presently turning her eyes aside she
saw a young man also leaning over the
side. but instead of looking into the
water he was gazing at her. She saw
the lovelight I his eyes and uncon
sciously returned it.
Covering her face, she pursued her
way. But from that moment she was
changed. Her young and excitable he
ing saw in all about her that face
alone. At least it was all that excited
a response in her. Indeed, it became

It was at this time that negotiations
were entered upon for her marriage

of them she had not met the young
man on the bridge, and they did not

meeting they became a horror to her.
But she could do nothing to prevent
the union that awaited her. She had
