Of tho 103,000 Spanish soldiers wWtlk lacking, it appears that 40,000 are now In Ji$'St ' ne nospitals, leaving 63,000 to bo passed IkH? to the account of those dead of disease or ?-jB"iv wounds, or sent homo as permanently in- fM i', ralldcd or for other reasons. fill , This revelation must startle Madrid. 51 Sir There have been no encounters such as in g&iSlj " our own civil war wero called Its great S12 battles, and the Spaniards cannot have HSrES, lost very many men in any one engage- Htflvi ment; but constant skirmishing and the lap ;K ravages of disease have made up an ap- g ?W' palling aggregate.

'Jm&L &K tip, m. Secretary Alcer's Report. W JE The most striking fact In tho Secretary 9 Mt ' of War's report is that ho asks for an ap- fflr M propriation of $00,208,445.80 for tho next jm W' fiscal year. This Is over $43,000,000 in 'm Hi excess of last year's estimates, over one- S 'w naif more than the $02,832,417.25 voted K M, for the current year, and nearly double tho I m 'X $40,350,130.72 actually expended last I S K year. In a total of twenty-one classes otes- 19 timates we observe only two where reduc- w S tlons are made from last year's npproprla- I 'K V tlons, these two reductions aggregating II a little over $00,000; while in fourteen S JR' there are increases. But it should bo ' H W. remarked that more than half the total W. W Increase over last year's estimates Is S m,, B outside of military expenses proper, name- ife K ly for river and harbor Improvements, It K where last year's actual appropriation of M W $23,278,028.37 is augmented to $48,728,- ; m W 160.60, mailing over half the total present iWTm estimates, and nearly quadrupling tho $13,. K JjK 083,103.81 actually expended for tho fiscal R K year that ended on June 30 lost. Injustice If Ki to Secretary Aloer it should be added that W?B' ,he says he ls convinced that Gen. Cuaio wH ' hill's estimates for rivers and harbors, al,JBL which "greatly exceed former estimates," J?" m aro "lBr?e'y 'n excess of what they ought g B to be." It Is to bo hoped that Congress will 'm. 8 reach the same conclusion. 'M The next largest estimate, $13,378,571, E 9 's mada 'or (orts. There the Secretary ad- W W yIbos no reduction, although the current ife M year's opproprlatlous were only $0,517,141, 'Is s i and the actual expeadlturea for tho year ,thst ended on Jund30, 1807, were only l$0,045458.13 It "seems clear that the establishments now making guns, mortars, and carriages for the forts should bo' sup plied with tho means ot turning out all !thoyrcan without extra work during tho 'twelve months, and that as much money as can actually bo laid out on emplacements In that period should also bo supplied. A fair estimate of what these amounts will bo can bo bad from tho work accomplished during tho current fiscal year. For car riages and emplacements especially, Con grens should appropriate as much as it has reason to bcllovo that tho Ordnance and Engineer officers will expend, on tho basis of their post and present energy. So much it can fairly bo asked to do. Tho army appears to be In excellent con dition, as shown by Gen. Miles's report, which Is quoted In full. Tho Secretary asks for two additional regiments of artillery, which is certainly tho least that should bo accorded, and ho recommends tho revival of tho grado of Llcutenant-Gencral and In creased rank and pay for officers serving as military attaches in foreign countries whllo so serving. Ho would also glvo extra pay to men Bcrvlng'ln Alaska, on account ot the severe climate and the temptations to do scrt, thinking that this Increase will securo a high grade ot men. With two new artillery regiments the army can absorb more promptly tho gradu ates of tho Military Academy, and the Sec retary therefore suggests Increasing the number of cadets by thirty, by Presidential appointment of ten at largo each year, In stead of ten In four years, as now. Secretary Aloeii has been fortunate In his official experlcnco thus far. Ills career In tho War Department has opened in a time of peace, with no Indian or other hos tilities even threatened. Tho great work of coast defence has been fully mapped out, and needs only to bo prosecuted In Its de tails through tho appropriations of Con gress. No new problem, In short, at onco urgent and difficult, has been presented to him during tho period of familiarising him self with thoroutlnoot his office. Perhaps it Is for this reason that his first report is so largely mado up of summaries, in letter form, ot the various reports mado to him by the heads of bureaus and by Gen. Miles, with brief comments upon them. But tho rarity ot the instances In which tho Secre tary expresses hla own vlows may, per haps, give them somewhat moro force. Japan Has No Dcslcns on tho Nica ragua Canal. We directed attention a week ago to an Interview with Mr. Tonu Hosm, recorded In certain Japanese newspapers, to tho effect that, while ho was serving as Minis ter at Washington, concessions regarding tho Nicaragua Canal wero offered to him by Mr. Rodriguez, the representative ot tho so-called Greater Bcpublic of Central America, Wo are now able to say on first hand and conclusive authority what took placo on tho occasion referred to. What the incident actually brought out was the determination of Japan to maintain cor dial relations with the United States and to reject any overtures, tho acceptance of which might tend to placo her in an un friendly attitude toward this country. The facts, which we are able to vouch for, are as follows : Last spring Mr. Hosm and Mr. Rodriguez, Minister of tho so-called Greater Republic of Central America, wero negotiating a treaty of commerce and navi gation. This treaty, which, so far as Japan is concerned, was to be strictly limited to tho purposes named, still remains uncompleted. It Is true that, in tho course of tho negotiations, Mr. Rod riguez, said that his Government deemed It desirable to tako all possible measures to assure tho exclusive applica tion of any interoceanlc route, that might bo opened through Nicaragua, to the in terests of commerce and navigation in general. To that end ho proposed that we quote from his memorandum " the Gov ernment of Japan should guaranteo to the Greater Republic of Central America, and in its name to the State of Nira ragua, tho rights of possession, owner ship, and sovereignty over the Isthmus and tho interoceanlc route, as well as tho neutrality and innocent use ot the same when open to commerce." In return for this guarantee, Japan was to have the same rights as to the use of the canal which should bo enjoyed by other marlttmo na tions upon the payment of the samo fees, tolls, &c and subject to tho same laws and regulations. Now, Mr. Hosni was aware that almost all American statesmen believe that the Nicaragua Canal should bo constructed and operated, not under a general guaran tee of commercial nations, but under the sole guaranteo of tho United States, which confederation is most vitally interested in the opening of the waterway. So believ ing, they hold that the Clayton-Bulwcr treaty, which provided for a joint guarantee on tho part of tho United States and Eng land, Is either actually void through tho failure of the consideration promised by England, or at least voldablo at the option of this country. Acquainted with these facts, Mr. Hosm replied to Mr. Rodriguez that ho could not understand tho necessity for a special guarantee on the part of Japan, but promised, as It was his duty to promise, to communicato the proposal to his Govern ment. This he did, and tbo answer re ceived from Toklo was to the effect that Japan could hardly undertake such a guar antee alone, but that tho Imperial Gov 'ernment had no objection to joining the other maritime nations having treaty rela tions with Nicaragua, In "all reasonable and proper measures for tho preservation of the neutrality of tho canal." If this had been tho only messago received at the time from Toklo, It might havo been inferred that Japan was willing to combine with England and other European nations In a joint guarantee ot tho neutrality of the canal, Instead of deferring to the known wish of the United States that tho waterway should bo under the special and solo guarantee of this country. Ab a mat ter of fact, however, simultaneously with the despatch of tho Instructions concerning the reply to bo mado to Mr. Rodhiguki, Mr. Hosm mis directed to communicato with our Secretary of State for the purpose of ascertaining whether participation in such a general guarantee would be agreea ble to the Government of the United States, This Mr. Hosm linmediutelydid, explicitly and frankly. There the matter rests. Mr. Houmourz has gouo home, and meanwhile even tho commercial treaty projected between Japan and tho Greater Republic of Central America remains, as we have said, uncom pleted. For purely commercial reasons Japan, not unnaturally, desires to obtain such a treaty, but she has convinced our State Department that she has no intention of participating in any undertaking, even remotely or .Indirectly, hostile to the In- t l i.u, '..V. yjJMii aummiilMWT-j-1 , i Ajjaj Urests of the United great' la Nicaragua or elsowhere. .',...,' The great body ot the American people havo watched for many years with Interest and sympathy the remarkable progress ot Japan, and they will bo glad to loam that their friendly feelings ore appreciated. 1 Mr. Dlngley and tho Steamer Trunks. Congressman DiNOLKY'a newspaper, tho Lewislon Evening Journal, proporly re bukca tho Eastern Argua ot Portland for assuming that Mr. Dinolby'b advance esti mate of $10,000,0110 an the revenue to be gained under tho tourlsta section ot tho Tariff act has been disproved and rendered ridiculous by tho comparatively Insignifi cant returns from the collection of duties on tho docks. The comparison between estimate and results Is unfair to Mr. Dinolky, who meant to Include In the $10,000,000 the revenue derived from the Importation, through the regular channels ot trade, of goods that would otherwise havo been brought in freo of duty, as personal effects, by returning travellers. The success or tho falluro of this experi ment in limiting tho value of personal effects exempt from duty must be meas ured by Indirect results as well as direct collections. It Is Mr. Dnfourr'a fortune or misfortune that this cannot be done with certainty. There Is no way ot ascertaining how much revenue Is collected at the Custom Houses on articles which under previous tariffs would have entered free ot duty In tho trunks and satchels of Americans returning from abroad. Mr. Dinolby'b $10,000,000 estimate can be vindicated only by another estimate, and not by statistics ; and this Is where he has the advantage over his critics. Tho Legal Definition of Polygamlst. A number ot Turks were excluded from admission Into the United States at this port last week by the immigration officers on tho ground that they wore polygamlsto. This exclusion is final In tho absenco ot a direction to tho contrary from Washington. The statuto applicable to the subject, how ever, provides that a decision by the ap propriate Immigration or customs officers adverse to the admission of an alien may be reversed on an appeal to the Secretary ot the Treasury. Thore Is no pretence or suggestion, we believe, that any ono of the excluded Turks has moro than ono wife or has over prac ticed polygamy. Thoy simply avow their belief in tho Koran, and tho Koran sanc tions polygamy. This Is the whole case against them, which has led to the order for their deportation. The various Federal statutes relating to Immigration and tho importation of aliens under contract to perform labor in this country wore amended by an act of Con gress, approved on March 3, 1801, which declared that the following classes of aliens should be excluded from admission Into tho United States: "All Idiots, in sane persons, paupers or persons likely to become a public charge, persons suffering from a loathsome or dangerous contagious disease, persons who havo been convicted of afelony or other Infamous crime or mis demeanor Involving moral turpitude, polyg amista, and also any person whoso ticket or passage is paid for with the money ot another or who is assisted by others to come, unless it is affirmatively and satisfactorily shown on special inquiry that such person does not belong to ono of the foregoing excluded classes, or to the class of contract laborers excluded by the act ot Feb. 26, 1885." In the cose of these Turks the question which will be presented to the Secretary ot the Treasury Is whether a mere belief In polygamy makes a person a polygamlst within tho meaning of Federal legislation concerning the exclusion of aliens. Now, while it Is truo that no one would ever think ot calling a man a bigamist unless ho had two wives at once, the term polygamlst seems to be applied to a person who merely bellovcs In polygamy, as well as to one who actually practices It. Such, at least, is the result ot a reference to four of tho leading lexicographical authorities. In tho Century Dictionary we find: "FoLTOitarr: A penon who practice! potjfunj, or who maintains 1U propriety." Tho Standard Dictionary defines the term thus: " PoLTaiKUTi One who practice or 4rocUe poljgemr." In Webster's Dictionary the definition varies but little from the foregoing: "Foltoaiiiit: One who pnctlon poljfuny, or maintain! 1U lawfolneu." And, finally, we have in Worcester's Dic tionary : " Poltoahut: " 1 An adrocate of polygamy. namnmd. "3. One who baa mora than one wlfet one who practtcea polygamy. Jvhnaon." It must be admitted that these defini tions tend to support tho immigration au thorities here in tho action which they have taken; yet we cannot help feeling great doubt as to whether Congress really Intended to keep out simple believers In the Koran who have never practiced polyg amy in their own country and can hardly have any Intention of attempting it here. The Naval War College. The very modest claims put forth by Commander Goodiucu in his address at the close of the recent session of the Naval War College were certainly more than borne out by the accomplished results of that session. Under him, as under his distinguished predecessors, Capt. Maiian and Capt, Taylor, the Institution on Coaster's Harbor Island has proved of twofold service. It has trained a con stantly increasing proportion of our naval officers in tho art ot making war by sea; it has at the same time made invaluable con tributions to the body of information pos sessed by tho Government as to the needs and possibilities of coast defence. Its prolonged studies, In successive years, of problems based on the supposed attack of an enemy, now upon the Now England coast, now upon New York, and again at various strategic points south of us, have yielded the most valuable results. War charts and coast-defence plans have been produced wliich aro carefully locked up for tbo f uturo use of the Government ; steam launch reconnoisances have disclosed the leading elements in tho strategio positions on tho Atlantic coast; the scoutlug areas, the points for provisioning ond coaling a fleet, tho proper lookout and slgual sta tions, the torpedo boat bases, the best anchorages, the places for laying submarine mines, have been studied at points along our seaboard from Cosco Bay southward. The Institution has ulsoglvcn Instruction in strategy, in tactics, In tho types of ships we need, in steam engineering, in arma ments and armor, In electrioity and other naval equipments, In hygiene, In naval his tory,. In International law. The hopes of Admiral Luos, at tho founding ot the in stttuvlon, as to It tisefulness, must havo been fulfilled In a large measure. Commander GooDnion, In hla closing lecture, Insists that strategy ! ot necessity a matter of study as the college Btudles It, because, while our theatre of operations Is so largo and our fleet so small, only minor problems could In any caso bo solved oven by making uso of sovoral largo fleots on a much restricted area; and training tho mind to penetrate correctly tho plans of an enemy is something that actual fleet evolu tions may not Impart at all. In the mlmio warfare Involved In tho strategio games ot the college, fit tcon situations wore studied and solved during the session. A few years ago this Institution had to struggle hard, and In somo Instances oven struggled unsuccessfully, for tho support ot Congress. That period, however, is past, and with tho general acknowledgment ot Its usefulness, not only In the training of Individual officers for tho crowning work ot their profession, but In Its contributions to tho problems ot coast defence, it can doubtless rest assured that proper provision will contlnuo to bo made for Its needs. Yale's Turn. Popular Interest In the capital match ot the football season does not seem to have been diminished much by tho transfer ot the game from the midway metrop olis to the college fields. There Is one distinct gain. Tho professors In the academic and theological faculties of the two universities have now only a trol loy faro to pay, or a short walk to under take, instead of a troublesome and compar atively expensive Journey by rail from New Haven or Princeton to Now York. "Tho disadvantage, on tho other hand, is the general belief that tho conditions for an absolutely decisive test ore not so nearly equal on the home grounds of either team as upon neutral ground. This is a very important consideration. If a cer tain percentage of advantage Is to go every year, as a matter ot course, to the uni versity entitled that year to fight on Its own territory, the great football game ot the year will soon either lose Its present position among American sports, or will return to Now York, enlightened college faculties permitting, to regain prestige. These remarks do not apply to the result of Saturday's brilliant game. Yale's vic tory was not tho less Illustrious this year because it was won in New Haven slush and not on Manhattan soil, or In red Jersey mud. The apparent odds against Yale, and the momentum of Princeton's remarkable record for tho season, balanced this time any advantage of locality, In the opinion of the impartial. It was Yale's turn, and bright Is her blue. Information Cheerfully Supplied. We cannot turn a deaf ear to an appeal so urgent and so touch Ingly trustful as the following from the Boston headquarters of tho New England Free Trado League : "To tbi Editor or Thi Sex sir: Knowing yonrln tereatln tbecanio of fighting the lntquttlea of high protection and the methoda employed In paaslng tariff aets, we dealre your aulatanoo In the following matter: We wlah to get the namea and addreasea of twenty Influential cltliena of your city or county who are known or bellevod to be In aympathy with our objecta.

Without making Invid ious distinctions between the superem lnent New Yorkers who are known or believed to be In sympathy with the ob jects of tho Free Trado League, and who at the same time havo sternly resolved to re form the Legislative, Executive, and Judi cial departments of the United States Gov ernment, and to purify and straighten out the whole American system generally, even if they crack their windpipes, twenty names occur spontaneously and simultaneously to any well-informed mind : E.

Bach la cot the law, and it never has beoa the law, In either case. Besides, a bank Is bound to redeem its obllgatlona in lawful money only, and, whether thnt money is or U not redeemed by the Oovernment In gold Is a matter of indifference to It, More than this, the banks' ot this city have, within the last thirteen years, four times failed, for months at a time, to pay their de positors even in lawful money, and none of their officers has yet been sent to prison for It.

Tho present Pro Cathedral Is tho former Stanton Street Mission, where Bishop Potter spent a month during tho summer ot 1800. Bishop Potter has written the Introduc tion to the Year Book, as follows: "These pages will be found, I think, to have the Interest which bolongs to anything that touches the various life and the various wants, spiritual, Intellectual and physical, of the less favored of our fellows In a groat city. These, our brethren, aro making what Is, In many in stances, a gallant fight for God and righteous ness; and our work among them has had abun dant elements of Inspiration and encourage ment.

Four years ago Mrs. Adams was inspired to follow this novel fad by reading of a Russian woman ho had accumu lated 8.000 teapots in Japan.

Boston has become so ac customed to unusual religious manifestations that It It rarely surprised. The Common In the summer and tho thousand and ono platforms In the winter abound with things extraordinary. But there was no doubting the surprise that greeted tho appearnnco in the papers last Sun day ot this advertisement! Association nail, Boston Young Men's Chrlttlan As sociation, Doylston and D'rkeley atreeta, Snnday.SttB r.M. Address by Mr. Edward M. Lewis, pitcher of the champion Boston baaelll team, o. This athlotlc-retlglout Idea Is distinctively Bostonlan. It may not havo originated here not many things do. But It It ardontly culti vated bore all things are. It began two years ago, when Norton Shaw, who was then as good a right guard as thero was In tho country, went from the football field almost directly to thb T. M. C. A. platform. Shaw is still at Harvard: In fact, ho played right guard during the second half of tho memorablo tie game with Yale last week. Bxcopt for the novelty of tho episode, bis preaching in a popular pulpit didn't excito much talk. Ho has always boon a serious sort of fellow, prompt at nil recitations, and caroful to attond to all bit duties. Soma day, perhaps, ho may make a Orst-rnto missionary. Shaw was followod to tho pulpit by W. H. Lewis, the moat pooular cootre that Harvard has ever had. Ills glory was contemporaneous with that of Shaw on tho gridiron; but, in other respeots, the young athletes bear little resem blance to each other. To be sure. Lewis, who Is still one ot the chief coaches at Harvard, wears an air of attractive solemnity. But he wore the same air on the day, three years ago, when be fooled big Stlllman to oleverly in the smashing game at Hampden Park. The solomnlty or Lewlt It imposing. It is with him now on tho plat forms of Cambridge, where he Is In the van ot tho no-licenso rush. All In all. then, tho appearance of Shaw and Lewis as preachers was not astonishing. Both wero In college in those days. It was not so long after tho appearance on the platform ot "Foxy" Stagg. tho great Yale end and pitcher, and Spear, who brought pulpit fame to tho ath letes ot Princeton. And Shaw nnd Lewis. It might also bo said, were then moving actively in tho world of thought There is no bluffing studies at Harvard for any length ot time. Botb.it turnod out, wore admlrablo speakers; safe, orthodox thinkers; men of good presence. Hi nee their success. However, this success did not distract them. Shawls "grinding" In col lege to this day, and Lewlt is trying to rise as a lawyer. But with "Ted" Lewis It is different. Housed to go to Williams College. Thero ho ochloved fame as a pitcher. The Boston triumvirate taw nnrt went and conquered. "Tod" Lewis was therefore graduated from Williams College into the Boston Baseball Club. Last year his name did not become a housohold word, but during tho season thnt closed n couplo of months ago w ilh so much Bostonlan red fire, he made a long fat mark in baseball history. He was spoken ot as modest, pollto, cool. He could coach sldo by sldo with ''Arlle Latham. On the side lines he was a rampant, human megaphone. No man ever made more noise, excepting, possibly, "Calliope" Millor In his halcyon days. It is a matter of tradition that he could talk from the South End grounds to Bunker Hill Monument, which you can Just seo as you sit in the grand stand. But that Is tradition only. How ever, thero is no denying his aggressiveness, hit volubility nnd his vocal ferocity. With Hugh Duffy across the diamond, hecouldrnttleslmost any of the visiting teams. New Yorkers cannot be unacquainted with this notable gift of his, Aa a pitcher woll, with a little luck, he may dovelop into another Nichols, Ho has speed to Bpnre. His physical condition la always excel lent and he fears no club on earth. So there was no mistaking to n horn the adver tisement referred. Thero is only one "Ted" Lewis. On Sunday afternoon Association Hall was stuffed with young men. Mr. Lewis was there on tlaio. He was at cool as could be while tho congregation prayed and sang. Ho is a good looking voung man, tall, rather alight, with an interesting, rather immobile, clean-cut face. Ho did not flush, neither did he fidget. Ho looked utterly unconcerned whllo the leader of tho meeting extended a flattering welcomo. Then the pitcher stood up. bowed, took the New Tcstnuiont in his hand, found his place quickly ond read: "Whatsoever He snltb unto you, do It" " That is my text, be said simply. And here, just to show how an Intelligent master of the national game views Christianity, are a few ex tracts from bis discourse : " AH men were born Into religion. When men begin to realize this they are coming to religion. Religion demands work. Instant constant work. It cannot be put off. Time must be grasped as it passes If a man wish to accomplish anything. Thushavodono all tho great men that havo lived. A man cannot assert himself unless he surrender!) himself. " Christ w us not effeminate. He was a manly Christ. His muscles were firm. His back was unbent. Iloiufterccl on the cross without -hed-dingatear. He was all courage. This is the Christ I find In my Bible; nnd you can find Him, too. If you look ns I have looked." Herman Long, the prlzo shortstop, who is working in ono of tho bowline alleys on Wash ington street, heard Low la preach, and Is re ported to have remarked: "Ho'sa wonder! Ho beats me." And Long is a churchgoer. TJIE BELIEF OF THB FLY-A.WA.TS. It llao !Vot Been Verified and May Jfevor Be. but Their Faith Stronr. From the Atlanta ConitUutlon. Tho "fly-away" proachcr was at the police barracks last night for the purpose ot paying tho fine of ono of his "fly-away" sisters who was fined Friday becauso sho wouldn't aubmlt to vaccination. Tho woman, as was stated In tho Constitution, refused to be vaccinated because she bollevcd she would never get sick or die, and that vaccination, like any othor pre ventive, was sacrilegious. Sho was fined $5, nnd, not having the money, sbo was sent to the stocLado for cloven davs. Last night tho Rov. John Smith, the negro proaihor who teaches tho "fly-away" doctrine, cnllod nt tho police barracks nnd said he wanted to pity tho good slstor's fine. While he was making tbe arrangements to pay the lino he was questioned by a reporter. "Wc-hnvo never lost our faith," said Smith, "In thodirlno promlso that wo shall not taste death. When wo thought we would all be tnnslatcd on tho 15th of last March, wo re lied upon a rtlrultttlon which a white preacher had made. Now wo will pay no attention hole after to any dales. Wo will sock for no signs, but await tho coming of the Lord. We know if we have tho right faith we shall never die, but shall llvo until Christ comes again." " How many membcrsof your church are thero now 1" ho w as asked. "Wo havo over 100," was the reply, "and they are all, I believe, strong in the faith. Thoy have sold all tho)-havo and are living with no thought for the morrow." "Have any of our members ever died I" "Oh, yes, a few," "Well, how came It. then, they died I" "Thoy wero not strong In the faith. If any more of us dio then we know just as soon as they are dead that they wero not of tho faithful." "Suppose jou nil eventually die I" "Then that will ho proof that none of us were strong In the faith. Thutls a simple proposi tion, isn't it t But we don't llko to be called tbe 'ilv-aways,' for that Is not our name. Wobe llcvo that we shall not taste death, and we have nothing in our doctrlno about flying away." Smith preaches himself at nil the meetings and selects such passages as ho holds sup port tho peculiar tenets ot his religion. Ho Is a good lllhlo scholar and can toll you an thing iitioul the book ou may wish to know, in both thoQld and tho Now Testaments. Tbearle orTISra Clearly Kiplaloed. From the Doeton Evening Transcript. Prof. a. II. Darwin, in his fifth lecture in tho Lowell Instltuto courso, explained tbe causes of dally high and low tides. " When the moon Is over any spot on tho earth tbe water is drawn up toward It by tho forco it exerts, and at tho point directly opposite on tho other sldo of tho rartli tlio water In also raised 111 the form of n big wave," bald Prof. Darwin, "Between theso pnlnta on ellhpr sldo of tho oirth's circumfer ence tho mean Is depressed, tho moon thus tend, ing to form a spheroid of tho waters, and giving rlsu to two high anil two low tides In tbo course of ono revolution of tho enrth. "To understand tlin bi-monthly spring and neap tides, wo must uko Into account also the effect of tho sun on theoeiaim, Tt.o force ex erted by tho nun Is twcnty-six-tltt) ninths as powerful as that of tho one moon, nnd when thore is n full moon or a new moon tho force of both bodies Isiictlng together, and gives rlsoto the condition KnoH ii aa spring tides.
