Core of This Planet Said to be
Liquid Yet aslViQid as Though
it Were Steel
ii Waster WerforW-omen ofT

UNDER ENORMOUS PRESSURE
Neither Rock Nor Metal Could Re
main There In the State in Which
We See It on Surface. .
The idea that the interior oi the globe
fs composed of flowing lava has Jong
since been abandoned, but the picture
that modern science offers of the in
side of the earth is hardly loss ap
palling. All investigations unite tq
prove that the heat Increases as we de
scend deeper in the terrestrial crust
at such a rate that forty or fifty miles
down no substance with which we are
acquainted could remain unmelted. And
yet' the same science tells us that the
core of the globe is enormously more
rigid than the hardest steel. This ap
parent contradiction is due to the tre
mendous pressure inside the earth. No
rock ajnd no metal can remain there in
the state In which we see it on the sur
face. Its molecules must lose the ad
hero;iceharacter!stic of solid bodies
in consequeuce of the heat, but still
they are not free to flow like an ordi
nary liquid, because of the compression
to which they are subjected.
The phenomena of earthquakes have
given wonderful Information about the
Internal state of the -globe. All ob
servations show that the shocks of
earthquakes are confined to a thin up
per shell. They originate at a depth
of only a few miles at the most. But
the vibrations Which they set going
are felt nil through the earth, often ex
tending to the antipodes. The great
core, iield risid by the pressure, is ex
tremely elastic, and it responds to a
shock like a ball of steel or of glass.
The density of the earth increases to
ward the center. It is only in the up
per part of the crust that local move
ments can take place, causing shocks
and changes of level at the surfaee.
Deeper down everything is gripped and
immovable, except, as already re
marked, that the molecules of the rocks
and metals there are subject to vibra
tion like those of a bell against which
a blow Is struck.
But this is not all. Whenever a local
release from the pressure is brought
about by changes near the surface the
potentially liquid but effectually solid
core at that point may suddenly be
come fluid and gush forth through a
volcanic throat or other vent- But
such effects cannot extend to any great
depth. Nothing comes to us from the
vast Interior mass. That remains a
perpetual mystery, '. far . beyond ;the
searching hand of science. Indirectly,
however, we may learn much about it.
Astronomical considerations throw a
great deal of l!ght upon the subject.
We see that through the planetary sys
tem rotating globes are flattened at the
poles. . The same .thing is true of the
earth. .- Its equator buzzes: Its nolar
regions .are drawn- inward. Mechan
ical laws assure us that the cause is
to be found In the fact that the earth
and the -other planets have assumed
shape tinder the influence of the cen
trifugal force or their rotation- That
force 'is necessarily greatest at' the
equator. Beginning, as completed mol
ten ooaies, they have commenced to so
lidify at the surface after having as
sumed an elliflordal -form due to -their
rotation. ' .
Shows Arrangement om (o Penalty.
Another very significant fact is that
the shape of the earth corresponds with
that which a' globe rotating with Its
velocity would have if composed of
materials arranged to their density
that Is, to say, growing denser toward
the "center. The heaviest materials
must be deep down In the gloloe; the
lighter materials have remained at the
surface.'-This again corresponds with
the facts of observation. We. know
the total "weight" and the average
density of the- earth. It Weighs" six
sex Ml Ions of tons, and its average
density is fire and a half times that of
water. But the substances composing
the crust of the earth have an average
density Of twice that of water. It
follows that the heaviest thinss ia tha
earth, on the average, exist deep with
in its exterior. For all that we can
tell, its iuner core may be wholly me
tallic. At the center there is probably
au enormous aggregation of dense me
An indication that the inner parts of
the earth consist largely if not mainly
or iron is to be found In the. mag
netism of the globe.- The earth is n
great permanent magnet. If we eoulcl
learn the facts it might turn out that
iron Is the nrost abundant substance
In the solsir system and perhaps in
the whole universe. The majority of
the meteorites that fall upon the earth
consist of solid iron. Blow the earth
to pieces and In the resulting cloud
of fragments the rocks that. we are
familiar with would be almost imper
ceptible. There wonld be a rain of
iron and other metals descending upon
the moon and upon any other attract
ing body in the vicinity.
This view of the interior of ths
globe disposes of the notion; so pictur
esquely developed in ane of Jules
Verne's romances, of the existence of
tast cavernous opening in the Inte
rior of the earth. Such void spaces,
though on no large sc&le. may exist
In the upper part of the crust, but not
at a great depth. The earth is ef
fectively more solid than a ' cannon
bail, and the movable rocks compos
ing its crust are Jlke a lilm'of rust on
the hard metal.-Professor Garrett P.

ADVOCATES OF CHIVALRY.
Leap Year Club Girls Demand Ways of
"Ye Knights" From Youths.
The Leap Year club, composed of a
number of girls of the younger societj
set of Muncie, 4nd., has taken ad
vanced ground oii.tlie question of chiv
alry and has declared in favor of a re
turn to the ' manners of. men in the
days "when knighthood bloomed." To
see what can be done toward bringing
about a reform Jathe manners of the
young men of their acquaintance they
have established a set of rules, which
they will requires them to live up to,
the penalty being social ostracism.
, The first rule adopted is that every
young man meeting a girl acquaint
ance .in. the: streejt, or a public place
shall 'lift his 'hat. removing it entirely
from his head.
When a young man meets one of the
young v.-omen of the club and stops to
talk with her, he must hold his hat In
his hand while the conversation contin
ues. "The indications are that the average
young man is losing the old time re
spect for a woman merely Iecause she
is a woman." said Marie Wheeler, one
of the members of the Leap Year club.
"The custom in small towns of doiag
away with chaperons, the co-educa
tional institutions and the camaraderie
that exists between American boys
and girls and young men and young
women have had a tendency : to break
down the natural barriers that should
be kept up.
"What the girls of this club desire to
do is to get back in some small manner
to the customs of chivalry. Of course
we don't expect a modern man in
pressed trousers, patent leather shoes
aud high collar to buckle on a suit of
armor and fight somebody for us, but
we do believe and we think that every
woman feels the same way thatv he
should treat us with a little more def
erence than be does his young men
friends. But. even so. the boys are not
altogether to blame. In being anxious
to be regarded as good fellows some
of the young women have rather en
couraged ' these liberties, and so the
young men have fallen into ungallant
' "Do you think your plan will work?"
Miss Wheeler was asked.
"It will have to w:ork.wUh the bovs
we know of or we will hunt
oilier young men friends," was the
