ATLANTA'S BIG PENDULUM.
A Oouble Motion Showing the Earth's
ATLANTA, Ga., April 6.-The long
est pendulum on this continent swings
at the Technological school in Atlanta.
It is a heavy piece of iron, pear shaped,
and attached to a brass wire 42 feet
long. The upper end of the wire is
pivoted ini a steel point, which rests
on the centre of a steel plate, so as to -
cause the least possibJe friction. JC
Directly urier the pendulum is a
large circle divided into twenty-four
sections of 15 degrees each, correspond
ing to the distance traversed by the sua
in, an hour. The North Pole is placed
directly under the pendulnm, and the
meridians of longitude are drawn to
meet there. The parallels of latitude
make smaller circles inside the other.
Dr. I. S. Hopkins, the president of
the school, who made and put up the
pendulum, makes the experiment as
tollows: The iron is brought to the
edge of the circle on the meridian of
Atlantaa,and let swing across to the
other side. Apparently it swings
straight across the circle, but graduallyS
it traverses the parallels of latitude S
from North to East in a direction oppo- h
site to the revolution of the earth. The
pendulum, not being directly over the co
axis of the earth, does not move in -
exactly the same time. but fall- ' ehind. ]
It is said that at the -North role the
pendulum would traverse the circle in
just twenty-four hours, and on the
equator it would not traverse it at all,
for gravity would then operate to pre

The prayer-meetings will hereafter be
held at the church. or at least until fur
ther notice. The church is a more accep
table place every way -it will afford more
room, light and air. The feeling will be
more reverential, while the sweet strains
from the organ must give additional in
sp'ration to the beautiful hymns that are
sung. Those who conduct the meetings
extend a cordial invitation to all who may
wish to attend, and particularly when
there are no special services at New.
This little village, in common with the
country at large, experienced something
>f Saturday's wild and turbulent weather
-at least so far as a suddenly falling ten
perature and cutting wind went. It was a
storm carnival which had culminated,
Dh the "foam of that western wave!"
Whether it be a wind-burst from the
:hamber of the storm king, or a flood of
raters upon the peaceful valleys below,
)r yet a belt of fire sweeping its populous
lnd prosperous plains, it is all the same,
rhey each move with relentless and re.
;istless fury. And last week chronicles a
nud and sand storm-in which the an
,ry wind which preceded the desolating
>rairie fire through two states, dark
ned the air with blinding masses of mud
md dust. No wonder the terrified people,
n the midst of such a perilous and piti
ess situation-- bereft of houses, barns,
tock, crops, food and clothing, should
iave thought "the end of the world had
ome!" How thankful and thoughtful,
tnd how considerate and charitable ought
ve to be in these times of frightful and
ver recurring calamity.
Little Earle, the 4-year-old son of Mr.
md Mrs. J. 31. Bowers, died yesterday
norning at 4 o'clock, after an illness of
>nly two days. He was a joyous, hand
;ome little fellow, with bright face and
tolden hair. In robust health and going
theerfully from "sunshine to sunshine"
he livelong day, it is hard to realize that
le is dead! But it is too true, and we
ire left with but the memory of his merry
oice like "sweet bells jangled and out oif
une." The announcement of his death
vas quite a shock to our immediate com
nunity. so long exempt from the sombre
;hadow of death, and its symplathy goes
tut very tender-ly to the bereaved parents
n this the dark hour of their first grief.
