Lon around the sun is the true solar
Yeari. It is easy to see why men, in
thir' or:d inary aifairs, do not give tihe
year its exact solar time value, but
em ioy the civil calenidar they have
devmed. intstead of the solar calendar.
The lengthi of the solar year expressed
pirlsiely', i, 3Ir5,241221 I days, or a little
les. than 1'? iday's. It is obvious that
ini thei ointess alfairs of life it would
lie very inconvenient, to use a time
dijvisioin called a year containing so
miany diays and fraction of a day. F~or
orin' iary puirp)oses the year must bc
counted as so mfany' days. Tho oa di
nary year~ is, therefore, counted as 365'
dlays, whieb is nearly a fourth of a day
shorter than the true year.
Oft 'ourse this time dilference be
tween the solar and the civil year mus1
he accounted for, sooner or later, and.
when it ia convenient so to do, the truc
and the artilicial year must be brought
into concordance as nearly as possible
T'he coniuniion civil year is too short by
.2 1221h of a day. in four years thh
amolunts to .9i~6l of a day, andl t
bJoth in the Juilian and Gregorian cal
endars the last of this period o1
fouir years is made a leap year, or it
other words a day is added to it, mak,
ing 3hh days in that year. llut not a
day was requ ired to bring the civi
and solar year into concordanee. The
mean civil year, thus lixed, is a little
too long, and in the course of a periot
of i00 years the civil calendar thui
gains :3 I136 d~ays. So another balane
is struck between the true and artifi
cial calendairs by the suppression o
the inter-calary days in the years 1700
1800) and i1'uO, which otherwise would b

in 1900i( leaves a gap between the tw

Gregorian calendar of only about one

of the intercalary day evei y four year
and the suppression of that day in th
last year' of every three out of fou
centuries balances the years so fa
that the error amounts to only one da

The year 2000 will end the cycle
four centuries and will be a leap yeal
Then opens the next cycle, and in th~
Year 21010, 2200 and 2300 the interce

An Atlanta Drummer Acteti as Pall
Bearer at tho Funeral of a Man lie
d Did n't Know.
" I won*, to a funeral the other day
and I can't got it out of fhy head. It
bothers me, and I am not likely to for

T1rho speaker was a young and popular
" Atlantian whose business koeps him in
r Savannah most of the titte. lie was
9. hero on a visit, and his friends were
greatly interosted In the 8-ory of his
experience a a pallbearer.
" Yes," continued the young man.
" I went to a funeral in an accidental
way, and was a pallbearer by chance.
d 1I didn't know the doad man, and
a the other palibearers didn't know him.
It beats anything in my experience.
" It happened in this way. I entered
a business house to sco some of my
customors, and after somo generalI
talk, one of the partners asked me if I
had anything to do 'or the next hour
or so. I told him that I was not busy
and was ready for almost anything.
" le said that I was thu very man
for the occasion, and taking me by the
arm escorted mo to a carriage in front,
of the store and got in with me.
" After riding a little distance we
3 stopped and another man got in and
was Introduced to me. We rodo on
3 soveral squares and then picked up
3 another man, and finally a fourth man
t joined us.
" They were all nice young men, and
very pleasant compan3, but I began to
wonder why we were in the carriage
and whore we wore going.
" In the meantime we continued our
journey, without any explanation from
At last I brought the matter up. I
told my friend who had invited me to
accompany him that I had plenty of
time and was at his service, but had
some curiosity about our- trip. Where
were wa going and for what purpmse ?
" My friend langhed and maid that it
wasall right. We were on our way to
a funeral and were to act as pallhear
"'This was unexpected, but I ac
copted the situation, of course, and
very naturally asked the name of the I
person whoso funeral we were to at- t
" My question seemed to surpriso the
man who was responsible for my pre.
ence there. 11 looked very thought
ful and scratched his head.
" ie had to give it lp, and explained I
that he had never heard the dead I
man's name. The hcad of the ir i
had ri quested him to attend the fun

Their business associates had tent t
them to the funeral.
" They knew nothing beyond the fact i
that they were to go to a certain hoisc ,
on a certain street, and then proceelI C
to the cemetery, acting as pallbearers. t
" We felt somewhat ratt Ied. W as
the man young or old ? Had we ever
seen him Did he icave a family ' r
How did he (lie ? These and other p
questions bothered us, but we could i
learn nothing at that time.
" The carriage stopped at a boardi in0
house, and we entered the place l ik
lng as we though t respectable pallea
ers ought to look.
"We looked sad b~ecaumse we fel t sadi.t
WVe felt sorry for. thoet corps an' d .<--,
for ourselves, andl as we gaz.'d in e n
another's faces we did not put on any o
airs or manifest any unseeiy pride.
'"The fact is, we felt, Ike a s-et of u
duminmies. There we were. th-- p:a.- u
baars at a funeral, and not one of umn v
knew the dead man's name '
"The undertaker was there wi jth his
assistant. Two (of the boarderap
peared in the role of moouner-. T1'he . e
were all, with the excepltion of the. pa ll- t

" We did(1n't, k now the mou rne rs nor u

"The in i ister talked in low ton's '

and when he was through lhe sidt
something to the undertaker, who told 2
us that we could return to the city.

The diriver did not obey. We yelled
