SEEING THE ECLIPSE it- Moon's Passage Across Sun Watched in Holland. Weather Ideal for Event Neither Anl- mat Nor Plant Life Was Affected in the Leant by Midday Gloom and Cold. Tho Hague, Holland. Whether the Dutch astronomers have succeeded In solving the problems sot themselves with regard to the sun nnd moon will only be known when all tho photo graphs taken In tho eclipse camp In Llmburg have been developed and studied and tho numerous observa tions then taken have all been worked out. Tho weather, every one admitted, was entirely favorable, so that a wealth of material was gathered. One of the important tasks of the astronomers was to try to ohtaln data from which to determine tho exact position and exact diameter of the moon. For that purpose they station ed observers at five different places. At each of the points chosen two telescopes were erected on firm stone foundations one for direct ocular ob servations, the other for projecting the phenomenon on a screen, on which could bo followed the whole course of tho sun nnd moon while In conjunc tion. The sky was Ideal for observing tho eclipse. As for myself, I had chosen the open fields for taking observations. There it would be possible to noto how birds, animals and plants comported them selves; for very conflicting Etorles are told of fear manifested by home crea tures or of birds going to roost and of flowers closing their petals in sleep. Exact to the half minute tho sun be gan to show nn indenture at tho lower right hand side of the disk, but no di minishing of the warmth of its rays could yet bo felt. Not until the moon had covered more than half of tho sun was It appreciably colder. But at tho critical moment, when only one twentieth part of the sun's disk re mained, like tho sickle of a golden new moon, the air became very cold. At the moment of greatest intensity of eclipse tho light effect over the landscape was peculiar. It was some what like a very bright moonlight night, only that the colors were more vivid; the grass was much greener and the red of the roofs of tho distant houses more Intense. Contrary to everything I had ever heard tho animals In tho fields took not the slightest notice of tho gather ing gloom. Cows, sheep nnd horses grazed calmly on or lay quietly chew ing tho cud. Neither was there a sign of unrest In the bird world. Tho sky larks did not cense their warbling nor tho' plovers circling over tho meadows uttering their plaintive cries. Star lings and crows flew about In little flocks as usual. No birds went to roost as far as I could see. Tho plants and flowers around mo utterly Ignored tho phenomenon; the daisies did not close their starry eyes and tho clovers did not fold their tre foils lu sleep as they do at eventide. Kut as I looked tlin moon was pass ing swiftly across the sun's dlBk and tho lower right hand "horn" of tho sun wns visibly lengthening'. Tho colors In tho landscapo grew brighter; more Hcht flooded tho fields. It seemed as If tho light increased with greater rapidity than it had dimin ished. Tho tempeiaturo rose as tho sun's sickle now appeared standing upright like a golden new moon. Then In a few seconds tho lower rim of tho sun reappeared. Soon it was "half sun," then three-quarters sun and at ten minutes to 2 only a small dark In denture showed on tho extreme left of the sun's surface. At 1:57 tho phe nomenon was over. It had lasted about two hours and thirty minutes. All Officials on Strike. Berlin. Tho Hungarian town of So bozlo has for a week been without municipal servants of any kind.

Milwaukee. Rewards aggregating $1,100 are avallablo for Wisconsin bird lovers If they find an undisturbed nest of a pair of the nearly extinct passenger pigeon. In a pamphlet Is sued recently by Prof. C. F. Hodge, Clark University, northeastern Wis consin Is designated as "tho most Hke Ty spot on the continent" for tho-flnd-lng of the, specimens. The object of the rewards, which are offered to bird lovers In every state of the Union, Is to deteimlne whether or not the species has be come entirely extinct. The rewards were offered last year, but despite ex haustive Investigation, not a single reward was claimed. Many nestlings were reported, but they wero all found to be either doves or mourning pig eons. Tho wild or passenger pigeon nl ways nests in trees, generally ten or more feet from tho ground, nnd lays but ono egg. In case any of the spe cies aro found tho finder 1b requested to communicate at once with Prof. C. F, Hodge, giving exactly the date, hour, number in flock and direction of flight. As soon as as the report can bo confirmed the reward will be for warded, v Ghost Alarms Gotham Police - New. York Officers Say It Is a Veter- on of the Revolutionary War Roundsman Doubts Story. New York. Tho old soldier Is walking again on Mornlngsldo Heights. An uneasy veteran Is bo. Just because someono sneaked Into his tent in the war of the Revolution and thrust one of tho old fashioned broadswords through him ho has been an aunoyaiico to tho residents of that vicinity for more than a hundred years. Nowadays tho neighborhood Is grown up in npartment houses, but that makes no dlfferonco to him. Ho oozes out of the Janitor's door of the house which occupies the former Bite of his tent nnd goes for his midnight stroll as nonchalantly as ever. Fortu nntcly ho doesn't walk often. Tho other night Cy Townsend, the policeman who has tho fixed post at Ono Hundred nnd Nineteenth street and Mornlngsldo avenue, saw tho hazy figure of the old soldier gliding by him. Policeman Townsend mnde a perfectly horrible noise as ho beat it In tho general direction of his pa trolling mate. He found tho officer In a high fever. Ho had seen tho old soldier, too. A night hawk cab driv er had also been favored by a sight of the visitant. Tho night hawk was making strango noises in his throat. As they wero discussing tho weird occurrenco the roundsman came by. "We saw the old soldier," said the three in chorus, ,The roundsman carefully sraelled tho breath of tho three. The two coppers passed muster. Tho rounds man stepped well to tho windward of the night hawk after tho first sniff and began his interrogatories. "Nix on this ghost stuff," said the roundsman, after he had concluded his questions. "If tho old soldier comes around here again you guys want to make an nrrest or you go up on charges." Policeman Townsend and his mate were white and shaky. They wanted to know on what charge they could arrest a ghost even supposing that tho ghost submitted peaceably to ar rest. "Well," said tho roundsmnn, "what does this old soldier spook look like, anyway? Does ho wear a uniform? Has ho any legs?" After consultation, the two police men attested thnt the old soldier was In mufti. Also, ho had no legs. He justa sorta slipped along, klndn wav ering like. The roundsman spoke with decision "If ho ain't got no legs," said ho, "you can pinch him for having no visible means of support." Then ho went away chortling, Po liceman Townsend nnd his mato havo decided they do not like that roundsman. Suspect Road Employes. New Orleans, La.

HOUSEWORK GOOD FOR BOYS Judge Declares That Washing Dishes and Sweeping Floors Would Win Respect for Mothers. Kansas City, Mo. Fathcis nnd mothers should see that their boys have training In washing dishes, sweeping floors and oven cooking, Just tho snmo as tho girls, Judgo J T. Sims of tho Wyandotte county Juv enile court believes. He bays this causes tho boys to know their mothers belter and enro more for tholr hoineR. Parents should mix the training with good wholesome fun for tho bojs nnd not make the work a bugbear but in sist that It bo done. When a boy helps his mother In those things, Judgo Sims bays, ho cannot be wholly bad. It Is an asset In after life, too; not, perhaps, because a man will bo called upon to do such woik, but It gives him a better understanding of his home life. Judge Sims expressed his belief to 00 boy wnrdu of tho court who had come to inako their weekly re ports. He had Just paroled Arthur L Smith, fifteen years old, with tho Injunction that he go home and assist lib mother with the housework. Perhaps because ho caught tho smile which tho other boys greeted Smith nfter ho had re ceived his parolo Judge Sims favored them with the lecture Smith had been taken to court by his father, W. L. Smith, a switchman. The father said he was unable to keep the boy homo nights because ho was at work then nnd tho boy did not pay any attention to his ' other. The lad promised to take the place of a girl at home. He said ho desired to learn to do those things, anyway. Physicians Recommend Castoria C ASTORIA, has mot with pronounoed favor on tho port of physioianQpharma coutioal Booiotios and medical authorities. It is used by physioians with results most gratifying, Tho extended use of Oastoria is unquestionably tho result of three faotss First Tho indisputable evidenco that it is harmless: second That it not only allays stomaoh pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi lates the foods ThirdIt is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Oastor Oil.' It is absolutely safe,'" It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotio and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, eto. This is a good doal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how ever, is to oxpose danger and record tho moans of advanoing health. vTho day, for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To our knowledge, Oastoria is a remedy whioh produces composuro and health, by, regulating tho system not by stupefying it and our roaders aro entitled to! tho information.

Dr. J. E.

Dr. It. M.

Frederick D. Grant," says the Medical Record, "emphasizes tho rcpoated warnings of tho medical profession that wo should treat a eenllo heart with respect. Ab far as wo know thore Is not the slightest disagreement on this ono point every .human heart over fifty, and perhaps over forty-five, cannot stand much Internal pressure without being ruined or at least dam aged. A very slight man may go through severe muscular exertion with but llttlo damago, but a heavy man. like tho general, places on tho heart and arteries a hydrostatic pressure be yond tho safety point, and It never ro covers. "The pitiful featuro of this deplor able death is tho fact that Gen. Grant In his last annual report had called attention to the opinion of llfo Insurance examiners that army offi cers wero becoming poor risks on ac count of tho increasing strain on their profession. It Is safo to predict more deaths llko Gen. Grant's, unless wo treat tho heart or a man over forty five with moro gentleness. Powerful Plea.
