the commissioners should be seen at

down tho river.
Mr., AJhorJ. Jb'addis, was, of ti opin

Tha Shape of tha Sky.
What Is the nppareut form of the
vault of the sky? There Is probably
no 0110 to whose eyes It seems a true
hemisphere, with the znnlth appearing
as distant us the horizon. At soa or
In a tint country the seeming greator
Distance of tho horizon Is best shown.
Professor J. M. Pornter in n study of
this subject reached the conclusion
that tho form of tho vault in vertical
section Is that of the segment of a cir
cle, tho arc of which subtends nt tho
conter ut nn nnple of the order of 40
degrees. If the reader will draw such
n segment ho may be surprised by tha
amount of flattening which Is thus
ascribed to the sky. From this optical
Illusion many curious effects nrlse,
such as the seeming Increased magni
