THE PRESENT INSTANT.
Science Defines It a; the Hundredth

A congress of European astronomers
decided that the present I line?that Is.
the present moment at any particular
Instant consists of the hundredth port
of a second. This has been settled on
because these men of science have
thought that it represented the tiniest
fraction "f time which could he appre

thousandth part of a second Is actually
used i-.t physical science, especially In
certain Important uses of electricity.
For sei. iitiiic purposes, however, the
oflh ial present moment Hashes from
the future to the past in the hun
dredth part of a second. This cannot
seem so remarkable when it is recalled
that speed records for both horses and
men runners arc officially calculated In

only a,figure of speech and is a mys
