Tue c!o<inor of fin century h re
maskable for the wmdertui d.s:overies
in scientific research Every day we
read of some marvdons di$c?ve-y or
Prof. S e, formerly pressor of
astrommv in the Chioigo University
aod now professor of mathematics in
the United Sta'e* Naval Obscrv?tory,
his'foand a new law in na'are, which,
from a scientific 6tindooinf, i-j a* important
a3 ths Newton's discovery of
the law ot gravitattion It is, briefly
stated, th8 temperature or a gaseous
star, varies inversely as its radius.
Tbis may not appear so remarkable
to ihe an-cientitic, ba from this discovery
many strikiug and interesting
conclusions are drawn by scientists.
Iq McUlare'i for May, an iuterview
with Prcf. See is published, and the
intertiew states the law a? follows:
"L?r. oee'8 jhw is o&seu uii iuc
simple and well-known princip e that
a gas, when compressed, gives oat
heat. Compress the air iti a bicycle
pump, and the pamp grows warm
under the hand. The artracli ?n of
gravitation in & gaseous body of huge
dimensions ac.s as a natural and very
similar compressing power. Tbat is,
a gaseous star compresses itself' and
produces heat. D,r. Sse's law, formulated
by means of a simple mathematical
compulation, expresses the
rah lion of the temperature of a gjseous
star to its s:z^ This is the formula:
<:TIs the temperature of a heavenly
body, R is the radius of that body, and
K is the constant. That is, the temperature
of a gaseous star vanes inversely
as the radius. If R decreases,
T mu?t increase proportionately. In
oth^r word>, when a gaseous body
shrinks its temperature increases; or,
to make the illustration specific, onr
sun, which is known to be growing
smaller (Sir Robert Ball says at the
rate of ten inches a dav), is therefore
growing much hotter."
The.accepted theory has been that

heat, has been decreasing in temperature,
It i* stated that Prof. Se* admits
that the "earth doe* not receive
as much hear from the ?tn a* it did a
few million years ago," bat he ac'
counts for this by the fact that the
radiating surface was more extensive

^^N^gni#ho:ter now than then. "More
hoqf^safs. from x bi^ cooking stayr'i
than from an alcohol lamp, although
the latter may be a bc.idred times as
hot." The old theory?what is known
as the nebulas hypothesis, that the
solar Jsystem was at one time an impalpable
nebuloas mass heated to an
inconceivable degree, and rings were 1
thrown oft, by the. motion, which 1
formed the planets, gradually cooling j
off, is not in favor with this new 1
hypothesis of the formation of the I
Speaking of his new law and some J
of the conclusions reached, Prjf. See i
says: 1
"Having: established the new law 1
? that the temperature of a gaseous star i
varies inversely as the radius, or, as I ,
call it briefly, T equals K over R, it is
exceedingly easy to fchow the earlier
condition of our universe Wc know
from the experiments of eminent
physicists and astronomers that the
present heat of the sun is not far from 3
8,000 degrees Centigrade above the \
absolute cold interstellar space. 1
Remember that when R, the radius, I
increases, T, the temperature, mast <
decrease io like proportion. Sappose, 1
then, that the sun's radium was twice I
wvi&t it is to-uay, the temperature <
would be only 4,000 degrees. Is that i
clear? Go still farther, and sappose 3
that the sun had eight times it3 present |
diameter; the temperature would be <
only 1,000 degrees. , <
Note, at ooe timj the sun's mass j
was so immense that it covered the i
estire space now occupied by the solar i
system. By the very simple appliua- <
tion of the new law, we find that,?i
when the radius of the sun was so ex- <
tended that it reached the orbit of 1
NepU?ce, the temperature most have '
been at the almost ioconceivable on- i

?" abone the absolute zero. As the ab- (
olute zero, or the cold ot space, has
been determined approximately at 27S <
degrees below zero Centigrade, then *
onr sun, or the impalpable, nebuleus s
mass which then composed it, must l
have had a temperature of 275 decrees i
below zuro?cold enough to make a j
liquid of air and then freeze it solid
into air ice. (
This was the original condition of <

of bodies probably gave oat a t

serve in tbe tails of comets, a light ^
probably due to electrical action, tbe
exact nature of which we do not yet ?
understand I imagine it mast bave ?
had nearly the appearance of a great \
fcg-bank, with jast about as macb s
luminescence. "When you come to
think of it, space may to-day be full
of just sach cold, dark, nebulous *
masses at that which formed onr sun. t
We know definitely of some of them, <
and it is a singular fact, going to
prove my law, that tbe spectroscope
has so far been able to find only two
substances in tbese nebalse. The first
is hydrogen, one of the lightest of (
known gases and cue of the first to <
escape from the frozen state of abso- (
lute cold; and the other is an unknown i
substance wbich we have called i
nebulium. At" or me oiaer suusiauces c
are probably present in the nebu'ce, (
bnt they are in a solid and non-lami- j
nous state. According 10 the old (
f~ theories, as I have said, the developing ]
I mass was a white-hot, flaming body, <
f the like of which we now see nowhere i
? in the universe, even with our best (
A telescopes. Either there are 11 > more 1
L. heavenly systems in process of form v (
lion, or else the old theories are er
ft roneous. For my part, I believe that .
the dim, cold nebulae* ot which we 1
B now know next to nothing, will in the (
ong course of time become son3 and
What's the end? It -has always
seen a significant' fact to *s that t1
scientists have always_agreed with the s
Bible that the world mast be destroyed o
wme day. They differ a* to the b
manner of destruction. Some hold 1
that it will burn, others that it will 1
be destroyed by cold, but all that it 1
will be destroyed.. Ji
As to the future Prof. See says: c
The sun is still a gaseous body, and t
it therefore conforms to the new law. g
We know that it is shrinking from
year to year, and it is, therefore,
growing gradually hotter. At present *
the radiance is yellow. As the years i
go by and the heat increases, we may
expext the light to grow gradually .
whiter and whiter, until it approaches
the glare of an arc lamp, and after 1
that it "will gradually become oiqp, me i
next step marked in the spectrom.
It will then have reached tha condifion
of the bine stars of oar heavens,
Sirias and Vega, and it will have
shrank to a density nearly approacD-j*
ingthat of an incompressible liquid.!.
There is a vast chance for specnla- ,
tion as to what effect these changes in
* " " - ? ^ hi u ~ i
{be color or toe sun s ugnc wm nave ;
on our earlh. We know that we
shall receive less heat, owing to tli3 j
smaller radiating surface ot the son; .
but just what effect aglaie which is
blue instead of yellow will have on (
the earth, its foliage, and inhabitant?, <
if plants and animals exist at that
time, we can scarcely imagine." ]
* * * *
"After the sun has bscoms a blue
star, like Sirius, blue being the .nark 1
of old age among stellar bodies, it will j
radiate an intensely bine light for perhaps
?i million years, and then sud- <
deuly b< g. ? falling in temperature. In 1
the tuition co ling it may for a titns
appear reddish. Then it will become '
a iiqu d, and finally a daik solid. :
Sirius and other blue sia-'s mast reach J
this dark stag* comparatively soon. I
Indeed, we have an example ota d\ing I
star, one i<i which the light is going <
out, iu Lhe companion or oum>, <
which, tilt.'iongb hair'as large as Siting,
gives onli a ten-thoasanaih part as

Aboat fifty-five yeans ago he married

whose lather wa?, also, a Bapti?t
minister. She, being ? highly cultured
and a truly noble Christian
woman, has baen a congenial and help

useful life.
Of late years he has been living near

well, he went to Motiticello, near
Alston, 10 visit a youn# omusierj&t
friend, Rev. E. A McDowell, who is
now in charge of Bro. Mellichampe's

The State,
News was received in the city last
night that the former postmaster at
Ridgeway had been arrested on the
charge of robbing the mails, The expostmaster
J. C. P. Williams,
brother of Sheriff Williams of Kershaw,
and a man well known in
Fairfield county. It is stated that the
arrest was made upon warrants sworn
out before Judge Brawley at the g
United States court at brreenvme. it t
was stipulated that be coald be released
on $5,090 bond, but Williams
was unable to isecure bail in sucb a
large amount. - 1
The alleged crime is that of abstracting
money from letters in the mail. I
The class of funds upon which inroads i
were made is pension money. It is
said that Williams wonld abstract the \
money from letters and forge the signature
of the party to whom the 3
money was directed. It is reported
that white people and negroes alike
were thus deprived of their pension
money One individual theft is said
to have amounted to over $500, while
the supposed shortage will aggregate
It seems that when Williams lrard
of the warrant being issued, he lett,
but was arrested near Camden,,
whither he had gone. He was placed
in Kershaw county jail yesterday.
