Velocity a Body Must Have to Leave
Earth and Never Come Back.
There are a. great many odd teims in
science none of which has a title so
weird as the speed of no return, This
means the velocity a body must have
in leaving the earth in order for it
never to come back. It has been accu
fately wdrked out and is found to be
about seven miles a second. Now,
though this speed has never been ob- 1
tained by artificial means on the earth.
still it is Interesting to note the theory
as regards the further actions of the
body. It would continue outward in a
curved line until -it was controlled by
balancing forces. mainly the earth. c
moon and sun, in such a way as to 9
make it have an or1nt of its own. So i
it would go on revolving forever just
as any other planet.
Although this speed h:sk never been
obtained by artificial means. it is
found in nature on the earth. and its
application has a great deal to do with
animal life on our planet. As is well
known, it is a pet theory of the scien
tists that the earth is losing Its atmos
phere, just as the moon has already
lost hers, on account of the'wonderful
vibrational speed of the molecules of a
gas. Hydrogen gas is known to have n
molecular velocity of over the neces
sary amount. and it is a startling
proof of the theory that no free hydro
gen is found in our atmosphere. The
theory is that this gas on being set
free rises on account of its lightness
and when it gets to the outside edge
of our ocean of air is left behind on
one of its jumps. the earth going for
ward at a great rate itself, something
like eight miles a second.
As the earth gradually lost its af.
.mosphere it would become colder and
colder on account of its inability to
hold .the heat recei-ed from the sun,

would cease. This has already. hap

There undoubtedly is an affinity be- B
tween the %wolf and the Eskimo dog.
For generatious the dog has been "o
trained by the Eskimos, chiefly by the ti(
women. and taught to haul a sledge in
winter. The Hudson Bay company's
agents and the settlers on the coast of cr
rabrador vie with each other in get- de
ting +ogetber splendid teams. One m
woul naturally su'ppose that dogs of at
this kind, so long trained and associ
ated with men, would become more or if
less domesticated and lose their origi- tr
nal savage character. It Is, however (
uite otherwise. D
The Eskimo dog of today is still * a
pure, unmitigated savage. Like his
congener. the wolf, he always hunts in
packs. Quite recently an Eskimo, with
his wife and child, was making a jour
ney with his team to a nearby settle
ment. On his way the driver became
IlI and weak and quite unable to con
trol his team. The dogs turned on ,Y
them and devoured the whole family. I
An old resident at Labrador told me in
that one winter's evening be was sit- h
ting reading when he heard a furious "
barking among his dogs outside.
Fighting among the pack was so com
mon that he took no notice of the dis
turbance. Next morning the cause of
the row was discovered. A poor Es
kimo woman was coming to the house N
for medicine for her sick child. She
stumbled over the heap of snow near
the door. The pack sprang on 'ier, and
some rags and bones discovered next ,;
morning told the tale of her tragic iq
The Newfoundland fishermen often
bring home these Eskimo dogs from
Labrador. They invariably turn out
sheep killers, and the crossbred ones i
have all the same savage instinct.
They have been known to kill a score
or more sheep in one night, all being .
found with their throats torn, but not
one eaten. It is simply the savage lust
for blood. The early settlers in New
foundland found the great timber
wolves a terrible pest. They killed ,
their sheep and cattle and sometimes tih
attacked women 'and children. They h*a
were continually chased and killed, VI
ut still th!"y increased. A handsome,
ounty on wolfskinL. however, even- -
ually brought about their extirpation.
AnimTals that hunt or move together
n peeke niways retain this character
stic. The reindeer in Lapland have
een trained and domesticated by man co
for couutless'generations,, but they still
etain this instinct of the pack. As ry
oon as the team moves all the rein- do
eer start off; nothing can stop them. pie
While the savage pack hunting char 2
cter of the Eskimo dog remains so 5
ong unchanged, we have, on the oth inl
r hand, in setter and retriever dogs wh
t very striking illustration of how an ve
rtifcial character can be given to the 'xor
og and a special characteristic firmlyth
mplanted in a breed and retained for cem
enturies. It is, however, purely arti- er
ficial and Is easily lost. For .instance, seit
etters and pointers kept b'y ladies as at0

generation lose it altogether. Every Le'
portsman knows that the young onesLe

six weeks old setting at flies. .
The instinct for retrieving is perpet- spX

remarkable Instance of his gifts and I
ourage is the story of a Newfound- bp
land settler, George Harvey, how 'with
the aid of his dog and two children he %p
aved 163 lives in 1832. In the autumn SI
f that year the brig Dispatch, on her spe
way 'to Quebec with emigrants, in a
remendous gale of wind struck a rock spe
bout three miles from Harvey's resi- ,
ence at Isle aux Morts. Harvey heard sp
the signals of distress and Immediately (p
aunched his boat. His only help 'was ip
boy of twelve, his girl, sixteen years 5,
old, and his dog. To get close to the y4p
oomed ship in such a sea was to court SpX
estruction. Harvey's dog understood ~
hat was required of him. He swam s
oward the ship. The seas overwhelm'
d him and drove him back, but final
f he camne near enough. The sailors La'
hrew him a rope, which he caught F
with his teeth. At last he got back to
arvey's boat almost dead from ex- the
auston, but with the rope's end firm
y clinched In his teeth. Communica- a
tion bet ween the boat and the ship r
as then established, and with care to

"I was afflicted
with constipation

eam. t.-.d at- times became so bad I
wod bccome unconscious. I have been
found in that condition many tImes.
Physicians did not seem to be able to
do me any good. I would become
weak and for days at a time could do
no work. Not long ago I got a box (
of Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets, and
'after using them found I had never
tried anything that acted in such a
mild and effective manner. I believe
I have at last found the remedy that
suits my iase.''
Thousands of people are sufferers
from habitual constipation and y,
while possibly realizing something
of the danger of this condition, yet
neglect too long to employ proper "p
curative measures until serious ill- p
ness often .results. The advice' -9 D
all physicians is, "keep your bowels'
clean," and it's good advice.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are
sold by all druggists, at 25 eents a
