The ; eminent Tenting Maelilne Whieh
Should be Manufactured Here.
The United States government test
ing machine for the making of tests
of iron, steel and other material for
industrial purposes, was completed
at Watertown arsenal, near Boston,
in 1879. It is a horizontal hydraulic
machine, equally able to test a single
hair or the largest column, aecur
ately testing specimens by either
tension or compression with any
load desired from one pound to 8i0.
0i0 pounds, the specimens being of
an length from one inch to 30 feet,
and in some eases longer. Its de
terminations have been of great
value to the scientific and industrial
interests of thecntire countrv, giving
actual information concerning the
behavior of large bodies of materials
in various shapes where formerly
only small purl ions t hereof could be
detached, tested and the whole
judged accordingly. Congress ap
propriates sio.oou annually for the
maintenance of the machine which is
under direct charge of an expert
tester and engineer. According to
tlie last report, just issued, during
the liscal year ls;:. iSilli tests were
made of which !o'.t were for private
firms, at a total cost of only ?l..'if:l.
These linns also paying freight on
articles tested to and from Water
town arsenal. The government also
carries on a series of investigation
tests for the benefit of engineers anil
manufacturers generally'. The re
sults of all tests are given to the
party interested and like other gov
ernment works of like seie-itilie
character accepted as such only all
over t he world.

A bill was introduced in the last
congress appropriating sufficient
money for constructing a similar
machine for Bock Island arsenal.
Con-idering the large and varied
local manufacturing interests. as well
as the industrial progress of the en
tire Mississippi valley that now have
to look to I lie Watertown machine
for information or oficncr do with
out such help, it is sincerely to be
hoped that the bill will pass.

THE MELANCHOLY DAYS.
The Set in Tomorrow With the liegln
ning of Autumn.
The melancholy days which the
songster tells of as the saddest of
the year, when the leaves begin to
turn and the summer is gone, will
begin tomorrow, when comes the
astronomical events of the passing
of the autumnal eouinox. The
swinging of the sun to the south
ward, which began on July 21 and
w hich w ill end on December 21, will
bring that b.uly to the middle point
in its course about ciiiht days lie-
fore the end of September. All over'
the globe north of tlie equator the'
days were at their longest and the
nights at their shortest around June'
21. Since then the days have been
shortening and the nights lengthen-!
ing. and t his w ill be kept up until
lVcemhcr 21, w hen the days will be;
at their shortest and the' nights at !
their longest. Then the reverse'
operation will set in. the nijghtsi
grow ing short and I he days long, anil
be followed up f,,r six months, when
there will be a repetition of the per
formance w hieh is at present under
way. Around Sept. 22 the nights
w ill catch up with the days, and both
will be approximately equal in
length all oer the globe. On that
day the sun is said to pass equinox
(the word equinox coming from two;
Latin words, cqtiis and uox. mean
ing equal night), or to cross the
On Friday when the sun was sup
posed to dash across the equinoctial,

gins, and the six months night ends
and Ihe six months day begins at tin
smith pide. while, as the astronomers
mark off the seasons, autumn sets in
all over the globe north of the equa
tor and spring opens south of that
Tlie Haitest Moon.
Ihe moon which reaches its full
stage in September will have a dis
tinction not attained by it at anv oth
er time in the year. The full moon
which comes nearest to the autum
nal equinox on September 22 or 23.
is popularly known as the harvest
moon. This year the harvest moon
greets us on September 2". On that
day the moon which appears as a
thin crescent in the w c-t for a few
minutes after sunset on the Huh of
the month enters its completed
phase, its full round face swinging
upward into view in the east as the
sun goes down below tlie horizon in
the west. The peculiarity of the har
vest moon is that it appears nearer
the fflmc time by the clock on success
ive nights than it does at other times
in the year. In England, which is
farther to the north than the United
States, the difference between the
clock time of successive risings of the
moon which fulls in September is so
slight that it appears to the agricul
turist to come into view near the
same time every night, the retarda
nation not being perceptible for sev
eral nights. Thus there is no inter
val of darkness after sunset and the
work of gathering the crops can be
carried on through the night without
intermission. This was formerly
considered a special dispensation of
Providence in behalf of the farming
class, and the September moon came
to be called the Harvest moon.
