By the way, leap year is hero, I
will write afow words about it There
aro few people that know it means
the gaining of a day in the calendar,
tlm 1 ' -
*?.ts?sujg uuotiu or twenty four
hours, and tho adjustment of tho
yea re. Nearly everybody lias some
dim notion, but its real importance
in grasped by few, except scientists,
and of these none but tho astrono
mer could tell you exactly why it is.
There is a va??uo notion that leap
year is caused by some flaw in the
making out of our time calendar and
there is a loss in some manner of six
hours every vcar. Our
^ w ?i? viiuvi nui
quite tally with the bud's time, and
at the end of four years this amounts
to twenty-four hours as a whole day.
To tuako this up it is necessary to
add a doy to tho year; consequently
leap year has 3(50 days instead of
IW5 days. Leap year enables the astronomers
to square things with the
ann nn/1 ^ 41 1 1
.....i iw uix-j) hid oki earth moving
along just as it should move. If it
wero not for leap year thero would
bo too much timo lost without a
chance of regaining it. Tliis error
is corroded by the system of appointing
every fourth year leap year. But
to the homo mind leap year means
nothing more nor luss than an additional
day. But connected with leap
year there is a bit of sentiment, just
as thero is in other nnuivrrsin-ioK
ami to the girls who understand leap
year it Iiub a significance which belongs
to no other year. While 1 am
writing about leap year 1 will ju?t
say some of our girls said that they
wero going to somo of tho young
mou'n homo soon and ask them if
tlioy would go to church with them.
Look out boys.
