Are void of blcom nml Ix-anty.
Yet in that road, thouu'h dark and cold.
It seems as we begin it.

There's heaven in it.

Ventilation In Sleeping Rooms.
Invalids are oftenknown to show marked
improvement when moved from a north to
n south room. A young lady once slept in
a bedroom which had no window opening
directly out of dooi s, only one opening
into a hall, and a tn nsom over the door.
She became seriously ill, was removed into
a well ventilated roo n, and soon recovered.
The physician in charge thought the cause
of her illness was du-i to poor ventilation
and the lack of sunshine in the room.

Preceamlon ot tne Kqnmoxea.
The precession of the equinoxes is a st
Ject intimately connected with the sod in
for wherever t he vernal equinox occurs th
Crst sign of the zodiac begins.
The point where the ecliptic and equator
cross each other is called the equinox, be
cause day and night are there of equal
length. The crossing point, however, is
not the same every year. The equinox is
moving westward, or retrograding on the
ecliptic, as if it advanced to meet the sun
at each annual return.
The motion was called by Hipparchns,
as long ago as 120 B. C, the precession of
the equinoxes, and the name is still re
tained, though recession would be more
appropriate to the retrograde movement.
The recession is 50.2 seconds of a degree
each year, and small as the distance ap
pears it has amounted to 30 degs. in the
last 2,000 years.
As the vernal equinox is the astronom
ical starting point, from which longitude
ts reckoned, its retrograde movement must
cause a corresponding increase iu the
lotigitude of the stars. The result is that
the constellations of the zodiac no longer
Hgree with the signs, and that star maps
have to be renewed at intervals of fifty
years to give the true position of the stars.
How One Clergyman Was Raised.
"My mother," said Rev. Robert Collyer,
"gave me the foundation for whatever
success 1 have achieved in life, in the judi
cious one which insured me a sound aud
healthy body. Site fed us on oatmeal
morning, noon and night. At noon we
had it in a certain kind of meat soup.
Meat wits dear, and my mother knew a
little trick which was calculated to con
serve it. We were told at dinner that the
one who ate the most soup should have the
niost meat. We accordingly stuffed our
selves so full of soup that we could eat no
meat, and thus the meat was saved for the
next day'sdinner." Cor. New York Times.
Indian Itelies in' uclaware Bay.
Not more than half n mile from Port
Peiin, Del., in a sheltered copse between
two tidewater streams flowing into Dela
ware bay, there ure w ithin an area of five
acres more than fifty dugouts, or rude
earthen houses, used by the Indians of the
region more than a century ago. The
mounds are fast disappearing, but the
earth thereabouts abounds in arrowheads,
tomakawks and other Indian relics, while
the hones of many savages lie buried hard
Some of the neighlioring farmers hold
the land that was granted to them in ear
liest Colonial days, and one of the oldest
inhabited houses in the United States, a
substantial brick structure, is still stand
ing near Port Penn and in good repair.
Probably three-fourths of the white inhab

My odd little friend, Roy Gregor, so
often surprises us with quaintly worded
remarks that 1 am once in awhile of
the opinion that some of his ancestors
were of the "rale ould Irish shtock,"
and that he has inherited their talent
for making what we call "Irish bulls."
None but an Irishman could gravely as
sert that ice cream is baked in a cold
oven, aud if this reply of Roy's to a ques
tion is not a genuine Irish bull, I am at
a loss to give it a name.
"Roy," said his mother, "this can't be
your stocking. Yours had a hole in it
when you came home from school."
"Yes, mamma," said Roy, after a mo
ment's study, "but the hole is -wored
out, I guess." Harrier's Young People.
