A paragraph lias been going the
rounds of the newspapers stating that
Easter in 188G fell on April 25, and that
this had not occurred before since 1734,
and would not happen again until 1913.
This paragraph is useful only so far as
it sencs to draw attention to the rarity
of the occurrence of Easter on any
given day, but, unfortunately it con
tains an erroneous statement, for Easter
has occurred on April 2j since 1734
namely, in 1701. However, the subject
itself is worthy of attention, since it
seems admirably to illustrate some of
the curious feature of the calendar and
to show how order is brought out of ap
parent chaos, for there are many seem
ingly discordant and inharmonious ele
ments entering into the problem of de
tcrming certain dates, which, after long
periods are found to blend and har
monize with mathematical precision.
Every one knows that Easter is tho
Sunday following tho first full moon oc
curring after March 21. and since this
moon may fall on any day between the
21st of March and the 20th of April, it is
apparent that the chances of its falling
on any given day arc very remote. If
the question of wceK-dar were irnorca
and only the day of tho month were
taken into account, then, according to
the well-known meteoric cvclc, Easter
wouldfall on the sameday oncein nine
teen vcars with jrreat regularity, for tho
error in this cycle is very s-nnll, as is
shown by the following:

The Church rule for determining
Easter is based upon this evele, conse
quently if we make a list ot the uatcs on
v.hich'the Paschal full moon oecurrs,
we thall find no two dates to bathe
s-arae for nineteen successive years,
but the twentieth will occur on
the same day of the month with the
lirst, when" the whole scries will
be repeated. However, it is not
with the day of the month so much as
with the dav of the week that vie have
to deal, and here is where the difficulty
comes in, and the rarity of securing an
agreement of the dav of the week and
tho day of the month, necessary in the
case of Easter, is best illustrated by the
following, the renlts of calculations
based on Ferguson's lunar tables from
1734 down to the present j car:
In 1734 the lirst full moon after
March '21 fell on Sund.iv, April 18,
consequently the following Sunday,
April 2.", was Eater Sunday. Nine
teen years afterwards, in llo'J, the lirst
full moon after March 21 again fell on
April IS, but this time April 18, instead
of lieing Sunday, was Wednesday, and
llie following bunday, four days iatcr,
was the 22d instead of the 2oth. Again
after nineteen ears, in 1772, we find
fcimil.ir dates, but April 18 this year oc
curred on Triilav, and tho following
Sunday was the 20th. In 1791 the Pas
chal full moon fell on Monday, April
lit, and Easter consequently fell" on tho
I'.'tli, as it did in 18SG. There figures
M'em to indicate tho occurrence of Easter
on any named date at regular inter
vals of three meteoric eyclcs of once
even fif ty e en years, and such would
undoubtedly lie the case were it not for
the fact that the question of leap-years
niters into the problem. Between 1734
ami 1791 leap years occurred regularly
every four cars, but after 1791 there
was "a period of eight years when nono
occurred; 179G was leap year and then
there was no other until 1804, tho de
cree of Pope Gregory having reduced
the year lfeOO to 3C5 days. In con
soqiience of this, at tho end of fifty-seven
tears following 1791, in 1848, when
En-icr should have fallen on April 25,
it fell one day short, on April 24. In
1807, nineteen years after 1818, tho
IVchal full moon fell on April 18,
hich was Thursday, and the following
Sunday was the 21st. In this year tho
Paschal full moon falls on Sunday,
April 18 anil Easter on April 25, and
then after tho lapse of fifty-seven
years, namely, in 1943, it will fall on
ihe samo day again. St. Loui$ Globe

"In tho fall of 1874," said Major
Cooke of the army, "wo made up a
hunting party at Fort Laramie and pro
ceeded up the Laramie river valley
about fifty miles. There were twenty
one of us, including three or four citi
zens. Wc had been out for about a
week, and hail seen no signs of red
skins, when one morning we awoke to
find that we were in for a disagreeable
day. The clouds hung low, a fine
drizzle was falling, and wo knew that
it was useless to look for any change
for the better before midnight."
"A gentleman named David Mills,
attached to some Eastern college as
taxidermist, and who was also an en
thusiast on the subject of mineralogy,
was a member of the party and a great
favorite. When breakfast had been dis
patched ho donned his waterproof and
expressed his intention of scouting up
the valley a short distance after speci
mens. I offered to accompany him,
ami after canvassing the project for a
few moments we concluded to take our
horses and inspect a canyon which wo
had passed two or three days before
alxnit six miles iin tho valley. " He took
n double-barreled shot-gun and I my
Winchester and a haversack with a
lunch strapped to my saddle.
Wc got off -about nine o'clock, with
the rain coming down in a steady driz
zle, and we reached the canon without
incident worthy of record. It was
know n to the canip that we expected to
be gone all day. The entrance to tho
canon was a sort of basin, jerhaps half
nu acre in circumference, with enough
grass to keep our horses eating for two
or three hours. Weunsaddled and hob
bled them, tucked tlic saddles under an
overhanging rock, and then started in
to explore the canon. At the back end
of tho basin, and just before the real
split in the mountain Dcgan. was a tre
mendous rock which had fallen down
from above. Its crest was at least
twenty feet higher than the floor of th
basin, and its broken and jagged sides
offered a climber an easy way tip. We
stopped for awhile to survey tho great
mass, and to imagine what a crash it
must have made when it rolled down,
and then passed into the canon proper.
Just about this time tho rain began to
pour down with great vigor, and our
enthusiasm for exploration was a good
"Mills gathered various specimens of
rock as we stumbled along the rift, and
at a spot where a largo slab of sand
stone offesed opportunity wc stopped
and cut our names in tho soft rock. By
and by tho way became so gloomy that
wc decided to turn back, tho more espe
cially as the terrific rain was sending
stream of water down the center of the
rift. This stream kept growing iasi
until it had become a respectable creek
as it reacUca tao basm. Tnereiiioosa
sweep to the left of the big rock and
rushed oat to join the Laramie, which
stream made a bend toward us just in
front of tho basin, and was only three
hundred feet away.
"I never saw it rain harder. The
roar of tho falling drops on the rocks
was enough to prevent all conversation,
and our sole aim was to find some sort
of shelter. We got it under one side of
the big rock I have spoken of. A shelf
projected out far enough to shelter our
bodies, and we drew our legs up and sat
there for the next half hour as dumb as
oysters. All of a sudden, with no more
warning than a snap of tho finger, a
wave of water flooded in on us, and
literally washed us out As
wc went out from under the
shell wc found the basin to be a
lake, with the water waist deep. The
big rock was our only hope, but we had
to drop our guns as we pulled ourselves
up. The waters followed us, and we
Paused not until wo reached tho top.
rom there wc looked down on a strange
sight. The Laramie river was pouring
into the basin from one side and tho
canon was sending a river in from the
other, and by the time wc gained the
crost the water around us was twelve or
fifteen feet deep.
"Wo had not yet spoken when wc
caught sight of the bodies of our horses
being whirled around in tho basin, and
next moment wo saw the heads of half a
dozen Indians dotting tho water. Tho
two rivers flowing into the basin created
a sort of whirlpool, and, though tho
redskins were swimniing bravely, they
could not break out of it. At ono point,
where the current swept past tho rocky
side, they would clutch and hang in the
most desperate manner, but only to bo
swept along again after a moment.
They made the most tremendous efforts
to "break through the circle and
reach our rock-, but it was in
vain. Wc looked down upon them
until the last warrior gave up tho
unequal fight and sank from sight.
Shortly after the last one disappeared
the water in the basin suddenly went
out until we could see the rocky bottom
again, and soon after that the fierce rain
was replaced by a steady drizzle.
"It took us some little time to figure
out how every thing had occurred. Soon
after we left the basin a band of prowl
ing Indians had coine along. They had
seized our horses and removed them out
of sight, and had then gone into am
bush to "await our return. The fierce
storm had produced a landslide just be
low tho basin, and tho Laramie river
hail been temporarily dammed up. This
threw all its waters into the basin, and
the overflow had been so sudden that
ihe redskins could not escape. When
the dam broke away, under the great
oressure, the basin was soon emptied.
"The results of our specimen hunting
were the loss of our lire-arms and
horses; but wc did not complain. Hut
for the Hood we should have lost just as
much and our scalps besides." Ar. 1'
Why They Should I! Shunned Ur the
Youth or Thlff Glorloua Land.
The president of an Eastern college
asks: "Is there any good reason why
our sons should not study the dead lan
guages?" It appears to worry him con
siderably, and he says ho hopes to see
the fullest discussion of the important
question. The East has taken hold of
it and the West should certainly bo
heard from on the subject
It is probably a fact that the untutored
West is against the dead languages. A
language that has been so indifferent to
its own welfare as tojet some other Ian
guage get the drop on it and furnish a
theme for the county coroner would cer
tainly have no political influence, and
could in no way help to build up tho
country, therefore, the professor need
not be surprised if the West is found
backing the living anil tolerably healthy
language as opposed to the dead and
I do not think it necessary that our
sons should study these defunct tongues.
A language that didn't have strength
enough to pull through, but cranled oil
somewhere and died, don't seem to bo
worth studying. Or, if the language
was foolish enough to call in a physi
cian and otherwise court death, it don't
look as if our sons should worry over it
while there aro good, healthy languages,
base-ball, boat-races and other studies
demanding their attention.
I will go even farther and say that I
can't sec why our sons should spend
valuable time over invalid languages,
or languages that aren't feeling very
well. Let us not, professor, cither one
of us, send our sons into the hospital to
lug out languages on a stretcher, just to
No. let us bring up our son's to shun
all diseased and disabled languages.
Even if it can't be proved that a lan
guage comes under cither of these
heads, if it has been missing since the
last engagement, it is just as well not to
have our sons chasing around after it
with a detective, trying to catch it and
pore over it
On further thought I am surprised
that the professor should think there
was any question about this matter
when there are so many live, able-bodied
languages loafing around with com
paratively nothing to do. After a lan
guage has regularly died and the weep
ing relatives have contested its will and
proved that it wasn't much, any way,
and was always more or less insane and
shaky, why should our sons spend their
time writing their lessons on their cull's
and trying to pass an examination in it?
Or if a language come out into tho
great freedom-blessed West and goes to
putting its Alpha and Omega brand on
some one else s stock and subsequently
sways warningly from the tall and dig
nified telegraph pole, it is not for voiir
son or for my son to go and cut it down
and seek to make its acquaintance.
While our sons arc not on speaking
terms with many live languages, it ill
becomes them to go fooliug around
the dead and dying. While they may
not know neighboring languages by
sight, wny Miouui tney scck to un
wind the cerements from some old
nuimniv language that thev can't ac
cept the nomination to the oflice of jus
tice of the peace in after they get it?
You may look at it differently, pro
fessor. Our paths in the great realm of
the education of youth mav lie far, far
apart, but it is my heart-felt wish that I
mav never Ihe to sec a son of mine ride
right past healthy, athletic languages
and then stand up in the stirrups and
begin to whoop and try to lariat some
poor, old language going around on a
crutch, carrying half its alphabet in a
sling! If two-third of the words in a
language arc flat on their backs, taking
quinine, trying to get up an appetite,
let us teach our sons that they can not
hope to derive benefit from its study.

ATcracc Consumption or Coal on Flnt
Clan, Steamers In Actual Voyage.
Tho amount of coal used depends on
several things the size of esol. rate
of speed, class of boiler usctl. number ol
cylinders in engine, etc. Late improve
ments in the marine steam engines, es
pecially the introduction of what i
known as the compound engine, have
accomplished a very great saving in tht
average amount of fuel used. To hon
what progress has been made in this
particular, tho following facts may be
quoted: The paddle-wheel steamer Sco
tia, of the Cunard line, put afloat in
1862, and at that date regarded as the
best and latot type of cngineeringskill.
a vessel having a midship section of 841
square feet, consumes 160 ton of coal
per day, or 1,600 tons on the ten days'
passage between Xew York and Liver
jiool. The City of Brussels, a screw
steamer of the'fnman line, put afloat
in 1869, and having a midship section
of 909 square feet, consumed 95 tons
per day, or 950 tons during the passage
JTho Spain, a screw steamer of the Na
tional line, launched in 1871, with com
pound machinery, and the longest ves
sel on the Atlantic, having a length of
425 feet 6 inches on the load line, beam
molded 43 feet, draft. loaded. 24 feet 9
inches, made tie oassase in September
With 53 tons of coal per day, or 530
tons on the ten dap1 run. " All these
three vesssls had the earae aver
age speed, and only a small
percentage of the gain in
fael consumption could be ascribed to
the finer linos and proportions, and
therefore better sailing quality of the
latter constructed vessels. Still another I
recent instance is given of a steamer ;
having the compound engine which .
usea out xony tons oj cuai per uai. j.u
four-cylinder compound engines of the
White'Star line use more coal per day
but make faster average trips, so that
the aggregate is about the same for ves
sels of the same rclatiou of average
power per tonnage. To illustrate even
more forcibly the success of modern im
provements in utilizing the power of
coal we may mention an instance put
on record in 1815. This was not one of
the first-class steamers, trimly built
with especial reference to making good
speed, but a large vessel, constructed
particularly for. the conveyance of bulky
cargoes. It wa tho steamer Burros,
which left England for China with a
cargo weighing 5,600,000 pounds. Dur
ing the first part of the voyage, from
Plymouth to Alexandria, the" consump
tion of coal was 282,140 pounds, the dis
tance being 3,380 miles; the consump
tion per mile was, therefore, only 83.5
pounds, and the consumption per'ton of
cargo per mile 0.028 pound; in other
words, half an ounco of coal propelled
one ton of cargo a mile. This is record
ed as the most successful instance yet
known of utiling the energy of fuel in
transportation. Chicago Intcr-Occau.
Some In tercstluK Purchase Recently Sfade
In Sprlncfleld, lit
Mr. John W. Keyes, of Chicago, has
purchased from Hon. William H. Hern-
don, of Springfield, I1L, the old book
case and table that for many long years
were used by Mr. Lincoln during tho
time that the firm of Lincoln & Hern-
don were practicing law as partners in
this city, and which partnership never
was legally dissolved until the assassina-
tion and death of Mr. Lincoln. Tho
book-case and table Mr. Lincoln pre
sented to Mr. Herndon, together with
the books contained therein, when he
was elected President in I860. One ob
ject Mr. Herndon has in disposing of
them to Mr. Keyes is that they are go
me into the nanus ot parties wuo win
preserve and take the t cry best care of
them, and eventually place them in tho
care and custody of the State or Govern
ment, Situated as he is at present, he
is not in a position to take care of tlicm
and the remuneration received from tho
sale will aid him in his present straitened
circumstances. He is rucrclv transfer

burg, Menard County, 111., formerly a
citizen of Springfield, what is left of the
parlor furniture of Mr. Lincoln which
Air. Miller purchased when the former

A JOURNALIST'S GUIDE.
Opinion or Variou Kxpert Upon How to
In editing a newspaper a pen is a
necessary article; so is a pencil, inas
much as it may at times be more con
venient than a pen to write with. A
pair of scissors is also necessary. But
what is most necessary is brains. Next
to brains in value I estimate what wo
call the newspaper instinct, the sense
of what news the public require, and
what discussion will be most effective.
Next after this come special talents and
general knowledge; anil the more
knowledge, general and special, a news
paper man has, the more uscfnl he will
But with all thee gifts and graces
he won't accomplish much unless he
also possesses a sense of humor and an
uncompromising love of truth and of
the United States Constitution.
A pair of scis-or. however, is not as
good as a pair of modern-sized shears
and neither scissors nor shears can
make a journalist. C. A. Daka,
Editor New York Sun.
I have the mo-t exalted respect for
the editorial shears. There is no de
partment of a newspaper so interesting
to me as the selected miscellany pro
vided the scissors work has lecii done
bv a man of genius. It is not difficult
to find men who can write, but men
who can handle scissors with judgment
and taste arc scarce. 1 have workcU
in every department of journal
ism, from type-setting to de
fending libel suits, and I never feel that
I am in such a fair way to confer a f.nor
on the human family as when I am sit
ting in front of a big pile of exchanges
with a pair of sharp scissors in my hand
and a paste cup at my elbow. Very
John A. Cockekill,
Editor New York irorrf.
In the hand of an editor "entirely
great" the scissors are a mighty as the
Hn. Good "exchange readers" are
scarcer than good writer, and, although
they come high, we must have them in
every well-regulated newspaper office.
Thomost successful journals of the day
