Mow High la the Atraosplieref
One would bu tlly think of looking to the
tioon for inform vion alMtit the height ot
the earth 'a atmosphere. Yet it is in just
that way that evidence ban recently been
obtained that the atmosphere extenda
much higher thiin bus commonly been as
sumed. Observations r.f lunar eclipses made at
the celebrated c bservatory of Lord Rosse
in Ireland have shown that the amount ot
beat received from the moon, which heat
is, of course, i ierey rellected sun heat,
just as moonlight is only reflected sun
light, begins perceptibly to diminish sev
eral minutes before the shadow of the I
earth reached tl e moon. J
The inference is that the earth's atmos-1
phere partially cuts off the suu's heat as it
comes between the moon and the sun
ahead of the edj.e of the solid earth, and
calculations bits "d upon the length of time
during which the loss of heat from the
moon is felt beft re the eclipse begins, indi
cate that our atmosphere reaches a height
of at least 190 m les.
How different this is from the height
usually stated n ay be seen by consulting a
popular schoolbook on physical geography,
published within a few years, in which it
is allirnied that beyond a height of forty
miles the amoui t of air remaining would
be too small t allect the suu's rays per
ccptibly in any way.
So in the tin st unexiiecu-il and some
times wonderful ways we are continually

When I fu st Y new V. O. Wills in I.on
don he had chan.hcrs under the roof ut No.
1 Clifford's Inn, opposite the Temple. In
those days he was known only as a novel
ist. The 'Man o' Airlie" had not yet in
troduecd a new ( ran.alist tothe stage, lie
had come to London a short time before
'to seek his fortune" as the old story
hooks put it and the quest was slow and
painful. Coming home one wintry night
late to his roon s, as he opened the dooi
with his latcliki-y he stumbled and nearly
fell over a man who was lying asleep across
t he t hreshold. i Ie recognized a seedy, out-at-cl:ows
broth -r man of letters, pinched
by cold and hunger, whose identity he just
could fix. He i i.-ide him come in, impro
vised a lied on cl airs for him and there the
Hohemian slept or the night.
In the morning the visitor shared his
host's breakfast, and found the quarters
and the conditii ns of life so pleasant that
he settled himself there as a fixture.
Calling . few days afterward, in the bittel
January weathir, I found Wills smoking
on the staircase. He always suffered from
cold. -Here lie W'illie Wills, very sub
ject to chilis." hi used to say should be hi.r

greatcoat. ' Way don't yoa go' indoors?''
I said to him. -Well." he said. "P. Las

Why tlie ling Is Tln-re.
All express wagon passed by. On the end
of the seat where the driver was there was
painted the picture of a dog guarding a
sale. One man on the corner asked his
friend why a iht.-'s picture was nearly al
ways on or near the picture of a safe. Then
lie told him. A long time ago the safe was
nothing more than nn iron box. It had
none of the soiintiflc at t.-ic hments which
one sees in ban -s aud business houses to
day. The key of t he great box was gener
ullyas heavy as the box. That is, in pro
portion. It was sometimes Used as a
weapon. As tin iron boxes laid no seen
rity but the ord nary locks, bankers took
to leaving dogs t ed to t he boxes at night.
Then it was foend necessary to have the
dogs trained. This the bankersdid not al
ways have time o do. even if they had
known how. The result was that the
manufacturers n ok to dog farming. These
dogs were trainci. in the business of guard
ing the iron boxes, and at one time it was
the custom for the manufacturer to fur
nish a dog wit h each safe. And t he two be
came inseparable This is why you see the
picture of a dog s i often wherever you see
the picture of a s; le. And that isalso why
ynu see a dog so often perched on the seat
with the driverot nn express wagon which
delivers money p ickag.es. Chicago Tril

People who r-ceive letters from the
Pacific coast in fix or seven days admire
the speed with which the mail travels
across the coiftiient, but forget that t he
present rate is u it so much greater than
that of the "poi y express"' as might be
supposed. The p iny express was the first
through route from the Missouri river to
the Pacilic coast It was established ill
lSo'Jor ls')U by a firm of government cou
tractors, and the termini was San Fran
cisco and St. Josi ph. The distance trav
ersed by the pony express was aliout 1.K0
miles and relays of Indian ponies were
provided at statin i houses every few miles.
A courier rode from one station to an
other, taking a fresh horse at each aud
leaving his tired i. nimal, and when himself
too tired to go farther gave the mail to an
other rider and stopped to rest. The distance
was traversed by i he ponies in about seven
ami one-half days, or at a uniform rate of
about twelve mil -s au hour. It was the
first through mail lietwecn the Missouri
and San Francisco, nnd although the
riders were often chased by the Indians,
comparatively f i w fatalities occurred
among the niess ngers. St. Louis Ulobe
