AMONG THE STARS
THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE
GLORY OF GOD AND THE FIRMA
MENT SHOWS HIS HANDIWORK.
EDITOR STAR: Possibly your rend
ers may enjoy some freih light upon
simple nstronomlcal facta.
Some thirty years ago, I remember
that the astronomer Proctor demon
strated that the vast spaces between
us and the visible stars are not va
cant nnd void, but are filled with In
numerable opaque manses. Much of
thee may be smnll meteorites or star
dust. Many may be vast orbs which
have faded and become opaque, extinct
suns. They are far opart, the dis
tances letveen them averaging pro
bably many million times their din
deters. Yet. ultogethelr, they lare
sufficiently numerous to constitute a
fog obstructing the light of nil stars
lying beyond a certain distance. It Is
owing to this fog. said Proctor, that no
light enn reach us from the Infinite
spaces beyond the visible stars. No
telescope can penetrate space beyond
a certain distance. All Is dark beyond
that curtain of opaque star-fog.
In accordance with this view of Proc
tor's are the following paragraphs from
a recent book of lectures entitled "The
Earth's Beginning" by Sir Robert S.
Ball. 1901. It Is largely an exposition
of the condensation of the solar sys
tem from a Nebula. On page 241 the
"Within view of our telescopes we
have, however, a hundred million of
stars, and If we multiply that figure
even by millions. It will still, we may
well suppose, not be too large to ex
press the number of bodies, which,
though contained within the region of
space ranged by our telescopes, are
still totally Invisible. In these cir
cumstances, we may admit that occa
sional collisions are not Impossible."
Also "If we believe that these bodies
are to bo reckoned In many millions
of millions, then It does Sometimes hap
pen that two of them moving about In
space, will approach together sufllcient-.
ly to give rise to a collision."
Professor Ball attributes to such a
collision of two dead suns, the lately
observed brief llamlng out of the bril
liant Star "Nova Persel," which was
probably the birth of a new nebula,
ultimately to condense into a bright
We should note the fact that even
If there are a million times as many
dark stars as visible ones, yet their
average distances would be as much as
one one-hundredth of that of tho visible
ones. Now the average distance of the
stars nearest to our system is about
sixty trillions of miles. Therefore the
average distance apart of the dark
stars would be not less than six-hundred
billions of miles, far enough to
make the liability of our sun colliding
with any of them extremely small.
Another conclusion follows, that the
period of any sun's extinction must bo
enormously long before It Is resusci
tated by collision, as compared with the
scores of millions of years that It blazes
S. E. BISHOP.

CABLE MESSAGE SENT TO COM
MISSION! EUSTIS AT WASH
G'overnor Dole yesterday sent to
Commissioner Eustls a cable message
approving the Bishop site for a federal
building and the arrangement agreed
upon by the merchants' committee for
acquiring it. The message which would

THE LORD'S DOING.
Rev. Dr. WIthrow finds, says tho
Sprlngileld Republican that "the spir
its of angels had a hand in the offer of
$1,250,000 from a real estate firm for
the Park-street church property at
.Boston, which has been accepted by
tho church corporation. "Brethren,"
he adds, "it is the 'Lord's doing." The
property originally cost the society
about $50,000. In so far as the growth
of Boston, private ownership of land
and pressure of population In produc
ing a largo unearned Increment, are
the Lord's doing, tho great profit of
this transaction may ibe attributed to
"Can he play?" "Why, yes well
enough so that wo say he 'plays tho
