process, and yet do not know why thcii !
Lcatit'p frames and their hothouses r j

?Cov. as a matter c.f fact, the heal I
ni"ch;;r.ism of a hothouse depends on
a weU known proposition in physics, j
I suppose you are acquainted with the j
fact that the cuerpy from the sun trav- !
els in the form of little waves. !
lhe encrpy does r.ot come down tc
us in straight lines; it comes, as it. were
in a zipap manner, dancing from sid
to sije as it comes along. If thesf
waves are very short, light is the result;
if they arc a trille longer, they takf
the form of heat.
If the light waves strike anything
on the way down, they are very rj it tc
be made longer, or rather are apt to !
turned into heat. Now, the waves w hieh
form liht an- so short that they villi
readily pass lliniugh glass, but the
waves which form heat are so lonp that
they will not. pass through.
From this, therefore, you will sef
why a hothouse remains hot. The en
ergy from the sun passes into the housi
through the glass roof in the form ol
light. Then it strikes the objects in
the house and is turned to heat.
F.iit this heat cannot pass nut through
the g'ass. The heat waves are loo long.
Ho the light keeps coming in and the
beat keeps accumulating, and soon the
hothouses become very warn:, indeed,
even on the coldest days in winter.
Of course, our dwelling-houses aif
healed by the sun in the same way. The
light comes in through the windows,
lint the heat cannot pass out. IJostoii
