Our i-.irili is small cr.onsh.only 7,011

one ear und out nt the oilier without leav
ing any impression behind; or, if they
cause us to think, we will wonder how
easy it must be to get from one country to
another, hnw delightful to be able to sail
around the world, pay a visit to one's
friends at the antipodes and be settled at
home a-nn all within the short space of
two sueeessive play days.
If we look at the subject a little more
closely we shall find that it involves far
more extraordinary oonsecpiences than
these. We know that while the earth
spins around men, dogs and horses, balls
and stones bold on or fail to the earth.
This forre which attracts mntterto matter
is called gravity or weight. It is stronger

pravity. Now the diameter of the earth
being fifty times greater than that of Ceres,
it follows that hnvtippe ia fifw
heavier than he would be on the little
planets it he weighs 100 pounds here he
would weigh only two pounds there.
Boys could play nt ring taw with huge
round bowlders instead of nir.rbh, and
play football with balloons. Girls could
carry dolls as heavy as their mothers and
a strong bull would be an e.asy load to
bear. But things stranger st ill would hap

in motion it will continue mining forward
if not stopped l.y some external for,-e.
Thus, when a hoy h aps into the air he
would go to t he moon and further were it
not for the at tract ion of the earth, which
very soon pulls Mm down again.
But on the little planet Ceres this force
is so small that a loy might leap to an
enormous height before the attraction
would check his ascent. .Tumping over a
housetop would lie as easy as playing leap
frog, while a good jumper would think
nothing of clearing with a short run the
tower of the new city hall. Staircases
might be abolished, for cvtn a stout old
lady could easily jump in at a third storv
window. The range of projectiles would

and he is at once at ease. In a moment he
becomes fifty t imes lighter than he was
as light, in fact, as a kitten and he may
proceed, if he pleases, to n.stnni

The marked benefit which people In run
down or weakened state of health derive
from Hood's Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves
the claim that this medicine " makes the weak
strong." It does not act like a stimulant,
imparting fictitious strength from which there
must follow a reaction of greater weakness
than before, but in the most natural way
Hood's Sarsaparilla overcomes that tired feel
ing, creates an appetite, purifies the blood,
and, in short, gives great bodily, nerve,
mental and digestive strength.
" Last spring 1 was completely fagged out.
My strength left me and I felt sick and mis
