placed to its credit is a magnificent display
of auron liorealis, and even that has some
thing in canny about it. These malignant
infliienci-a, however, asserted by some, are
denied by others. But observation records
some interesting facts, according to a re
cent English writer. The spots travel
across tie disk of the sun in some thirteen
days, and, barring dispersal, reappear in as
many more upon the other side. Their
movements appear somewhat erratic, but
they are the only evidrn-e we have of the
time (twenty-six or it. enty-seven days)

known upon the sun's equator, but more

The largest group of sun spots ever pho
tographed at the Greenwich observatory
is the one here illustrated, which was
taken Ft b. 13, its area being 3.3o0.ttH0.Gfl0
square miles. In regard to the manner of
photographing the sun an English inter
viewer n ports the following information
from the iLstronomer royal: "The heliograph
(apparently about twenty feet long) is al
most exactly like an ordinary astronom
ical telescope, with a camera attached at
the lioUom. The object glass is four inches
in diameter, and the image of the sun.

through the tele
scope, as a lens is
niounu-d upon the
exterior of the
brass tule to
throw an image
in the form of a
spot of light upon
a iwijMT disk lower
down the tulie.
This forms a
finder,' so that when the spot of light is
on the center of the card the telescope is
pointing straight at the sun.
"The plates used nt Greenwich are the
ordinary .andscapu plates. Those used for
the sun ire 'slow' plate, and those for
the stars as rapid as can le got. and in
every case they are carefully picked, so as
to be free from defects. A (lust spot on a
negative looks exactly like a star. In pho
tographing the sun the exposure has to le
extremely rapid, being frequently only
oue-thousindth of a second. If the expo

When the shutter drops the slit passes

In answer to the inquiry, "Will a pump

says: "Owing to the fact that water will boil

water is above the level of t he pump, water
will run in on account of its own weight,
or, more properly, the force of gravity.
With a gtod pump and moderately fast
