Celmtlal Rodlra Wkon Constltatloa la
West Known to t l We Shall rrobably
Rtajr Wliere Wl Are.
I du not think ILat It 4s at all probahle that
a n:nn could exist even for five uiinutea on
any other planet or any other body in the
universe. We know that even within the
limit of our own earth each one of us has to
be provided with a constitution appropriate
for a particular climate. An Esquimaux is
suitably placed in the Arctic regions, a uegro
on the equator, and were they to change
places it is hard to say whether the, beat
would not have killed the Esquimaux even
before the cold killed the neirro. But such
an attempt at acclimatization would he ear
when compared with that which would be
required before an inhabitant adapted to one
globe could accommodate tiiirwlf to a resi
ileiice on another. Indeed, there seem to be
insuperable difllcultiea in supposing that
there can be any residence for man or for any
beings nearly resembling man elsewhere than
on but own earth.
Tn BCH IS TOO HOT.
Let us begin with the sun. I think we
need not give many reasons to show that a
mnii could not livo there long. Every boy
knows how a burning; cla can kindle a piece
of paper by conccutrnting the sun's rays.
Some great burning glasses have lieen con
structed with which iron, ste4 and even
flints have actually melted by the sun's heat.
It can be proved that the sun himself must
be hnttT than any temperature that can be
produced, in the focus of the most powerful
burning glass. Assuredly there can be no
lil'e on l!ie sun.
The next celestial world to the sun in im
portance is, of course, the moon. Could we
find here an eligible abode for mankind? The
moon would, no doubt, provide the necessary
alternation from day to night, but the day
on the moon would but for a fortuight, and
then there would be black night for another
fortnight. During the long day the moon
would lie terribly scorched, a circumstance
which would be hardly compensated for by
the fact that even if we survived the scorch
ing we should certainly be froten to death
during the ensuing night. But there would
le other insuperable difficulties attending an
attempt to make an abode on the moon. The
absence of water is one of them, while a still
more immediate troulile would arise from the
deficiency, if not total absence, of air suited
It is almost impossible for us to conceive
what an airless World would be like. Fishes
out of water would be not more uncomforta
ble than we should find ourselves.
It us now consider tome of the more dis
tant worlds and examine their claims to be
regarded as possible homes for beiugs in any
desrree resembling ourselves. There are many
of these worlds with regard to which we may
at once decide in the negative. Could we,
for instance, live on a planet like Neptune I
It lies thirty times as far from the sun as we
do. The share of the light and heat from the
sun which a Neptunian inhabitant would re
ceive could only be the niue-bundredtb part
of that which is dispersed to every dweller
on this earth. This fact alone would seem to
show an insuperable obstacle to the existence
of any life on Neptune resembling those types
of life with which we are familiar. The or
bit of Neptune is also so vast that the planet
requires a period of 105 years in order to
complete a single revolution. The changes
of the Neptunian seasons, tf indeed Neptune
can be said to have any seasons at all, must
therefore be extremely protracted. A man
who was born at midwinter in Neptune would
have reached extreme old age if he survived
nntil the next ensuing midsummer.
Jl l'tTER AND MARS.
The ilay and night on Jupiter are both ex
tremely short, for together they do not quite
amount to ten hours. Jupiter's year, how
ever, is almost twelve of our years. Although
a muu on Jupiter would only receive one-twenty-fifth
part of the heat of the sun that
be would do on the earth, yet it does not seem
likely that there would lie reason to appre
hend that Jupiter would be uninhabitable
from cold. Quite the contrary is the case.
Indeed, it seems not unlikely that the exces
sive heat of Jupiter would be found intolera
ble by beings with nerves lite ours. This beat
lias, however, not come from the sun. It is
tho internal heat of the planet itself, which
has not sufficiently cooled down from that
original fiery state In which every body of our
system seems to have had its origin.
Jupiter certainly has an atmosphere, but
we do not know from what gases that at
mosphere may be constituted. It might con
sist of materials noxious, if not actually
poisonous: and in any case it is extremely
unlikely that it should contain both the in
gredients and the proportions suited for our
There is one body in our system whose
times and whose seasons accord so closely with
our own that it is impossible not to believe
that life of some kind may there be found.
The longtb of the day and the night together
on Mara u 24 hours S? minutes. That is prac
tically only about half an hour greater than
the corresponding period for our own globe.
The year of Mars is no doubt longer than
onrs, being about a year and eleven months.
Tho size of Mars is less than the size of our
earth, and, therefore, the gravitation on
Mars is not so great as we have here. I do
not mean to say that it is the least likely that
any nun, woman or child transplanted from
iiuseario to Slura coultl live and thrive there.
The temperature might be endurable, and
water upiears to be uot wanting, but I do
not think we have any reason to expect that
the atmosphere would suit human beings
either in quantity or quality. Still the con
ditions on Mars are so nearly parallel to
those we have that it seems reasonable to
think that the ruddy planet is suitable
borne for some types of life.
Of the other planets, such as Venus, we
know too little to aay anything with regard
to their times and seasons, while about the
countless worlds which depend upon those
other suns, the stars, we must be content not
to know anything whatever. Robert 8. Ball,
F. K. H. , Astronomer Royal for Ireland, in
A Cabin Day With a History.
William F. Cody, a cabin boy on the oyster
ship Water Lily, gave this story of his life in
a New York court, after pleading guilty to
achnrtteof theft: "1 was christened by Buf
falo Bill himself," be said, "and never knew
who my father and mother were. I was with
the Chcyeune Indians in Wyoming until I
was 4 yearsold.when Buffalo Bill Cody found
mo and brought me to New York. He put
me in charge of a friend of bis, Stafford
(Irafton, who made me act as page in the
play of 'Monte Cristo,' of which he was man
ager. 1 traveled through England and
France with tho company, and then came
back to this country and Joined the navy.
After two years' service I deserted, but went
back into the uavy after a few months. Not
long afterward I was discharged for incom
