THE MILKY WAY.
A "rutem Which Glve? Vu n Vagat

The Milky Way, tho grandest feature
of the "firmauieut which beuds above
us," the basy path which so majestic
ally bands the whole fabric of tho
?kles together, Is now known to bo
composed of a grand aggregation of at
least 18,000,000 suns, each as large as
or larger than that which makes vege
table and animal life an earthly possi
bility. Ono in apt when allowing the
mind to revert to the contemplation of
these misty and Indistinct astronomical
subjects to measure tholr magnitude
or attempt to measure It by making
It is obvious, however, upon moro
mature reflection that such compari
sons nro worso than "odious." Tho bulk
of our sun exceeds that of the earth
1,200,000 times, being 000 times great
er than that of the bulk of his whole
train of planets taken collectively. This
being tho case, what basis can wo use
for calculating the magnitude of 18,
000,000 suns, each, as I have sold be
fore, probably larger than that which
gives us heat and light?
The infinite number of suns which,
taken together, make up the Milky
Way are not set at a uniform distance
from our earth or even from our sun.
In fact, they appear to work altogeth

Others, however, are so remote that it
would take a full thousand years for
their light to reach us.
KYLE hay Press
Farmers take care of what you make.
There is as much in saving as there is
In making, and if you bale your hay,
fodder, oats, shuoks etc., at tho proper
time you not only save room and time,
but you save 33 per cent of the nutrl
olous matter that evaporates when it is
not baled. The
Kyle Hay Press
fills a long felt want with farmers. It
is the best yet made. The opinion
seems to be unanimous th at the KYLE
HAY" PRESS Is unexcelled by any
press on the markot. It Is going to
the front, already a great number of
them have been sold, you only need to
try It to bo pleased. It is easy oper
ated by 2 meu and 1 horse. It is cheap,
durable, simple In construction and
easily mounted. It Is the only press
that can be made or repaired on the
farm, It has no casting to break and
cause long delay. No other press has
this advantage. It is the only press
that the farmer can afford to buy, it
pays for itself out of the first crop.
Every farmer can own his own press,
and bale his hay at the proper time.
