The theory of Charles H. And< rsou,
(he Baltimore commission merchant,
that the millcnitini will come in iMi,
when the larth will become the eter?
nal home of the righteous, has the
counterpart in the efforts of a cen
Uury ago to prove that the earth was
not h globe, hut a fktt surface,
Although not the originator of the
'belief that the earth Is flat, the cele?
brated "Prof.'' William Carpenter, who
died at his home in Baltimore in l vo>.
was the most effective of his cult in,
spreading his theories.
For 30 years Prof. Carpenter had
w ide notoriety both in this country I
and abroad from his earnest unswerv j
Ing advocacy of his belief that the
<arth has a flat, circular form, re?
volving oc ti central exis, with the
stationary over the center. To him
the North Pole was the center of the
earth's surface and the Anarctlc
regions the outer edge.
Carpenter became a disciple of the
theory in the sixties by hearing a lec?
ture by the founder of the creed.
Dr. Samuel B. Rowbotham, who wrote
many boks on the subject under the
name of "Paratax.' From that time
until Dr. Rowbothbm's death in the
eighties the two rwfrc warm friends.
They called their belief "Zetetic
philosophy." from a Greek *word,
meaning "seekers after truth."
For yrars Carpenter toured this
country and Kngiand preaching his
doctrine, and he gained mahy dis?
ciples. When in Raltimore he could
often be found in front of the Johns'
Hopkins University or the City Col?
lege waiting to accost students as
they came out and try to impress them
with the truth of his theories.
One of his characteristics was to
try to draw into argument on the
question some of the leaders of re?
ligion and science. When they re-v
fused to debate wth him. Carpenter
would generally write an open letter
denouncing them. This he did to
Cardinal Gibbons. Dr. Daniel C.
Oilman, then President of the Johns
Hopkins University; Prof. Simon New
comb, the lale Rev. De Witt Tstl
mage and the noted astronomers,
Richard Proctor and George Airy.
"Piof." Carpeuter found a eon
genial spirit in the later "Brother"
Jasper, the colored preacher, of Rich?
mond, whose celebrated sermon, "De
Sun Do Move." made him famous.
Carpenter and "Brother"' Jasper met
?when the former was on a lecturing
tour, and w'hen be found that the
darky bed the same views as he about
the earth Carpenter as delighted, and
the two were ever afterward fast
friends.
With Alfred Russel Wallace, the
English naturalist. Carpenter waged
a violent controversy. John Hasnp
den. of Swindon, Kngiand. wagered
?500 that the surface of the earth's
water was level and did not have any
of the alleged curvature of the earth.
Wallace accepted tbe wager, and
b test was made with three boats
placed at a distance of six milt s on
tbe old Bedford Canal and by taking
measurements and observations. The
money was awarded to Wallace, but
? Prof.-' Carpenter, w'ho was one of the
referees, protested, claiming that it
had not been proved that the wwter
bid a curvature.
One of the Interesting things about
Carpenter was that nearly all the
numerous pamphlets he wrote were
set In type printed and bound by him?
self. In his early life he had beeu a
printer, and established a printing
office at 71 Chew street, where most
of his wo, ks were published. Often
he would enmpose articles and set
them in type without first writing
them.
The best known of Carpenter's pub?
lications is his "One Hnndred Proofs
That the Earth is Not a Globe." pub?
lished in 1HM5. In it he first gave to
the world his complete argument In
support of his theory about the
earth's form. The work while large?
ly rirculat"d. has become swell a
rarity as to be found only In a few II
Praiies
Carpenter's conception of the r trth
was that the so-called South Pole was
It ally a wall of ice surrounding the
Setter edge of the earth This con?
ception certainly fits well with the
idea of the vastness of the Southern
wastes of Ice which have turned back
all explorers The hardy seekers for
glory and the North Pole ha?e come
much neare? the objects of their
search and have made the region
around it seem --mat and familiar
compared to that at the sonth. which
is true ' terra tmoarnito." In the flat

"The aeronaut can see for himself

thai of a concave surface, this being
exactly what is to l>e expected of a
surface that is truly level, as it Is the
nature of level surface to appear to
rise to the lev?1 of the eyes of the ob-1

"Tin lights exhibited In the liglit-I
houses are seen by navigators at
distances which, according to the scale
of the supposed curvature given by
astronomers, they ought to lie many
hundreds of feet, in sum-, eases, down
below the line of sight. Kor instand
the light at Cape Hatteras is J
seen at such a distance (in miles)
that, according to theory, it ought loj
be 'J?K> feet higher shove the level of |

"If we stand on the seashore ami

ates, and it is ibut. the law of pcr

the size they are in fact. That there,
is no other 'rise' than the one spoken j
of is plain from the fact that no mat
r how high we ascend above the|
level of the sea. the horizon rises on
and still on a level with the eye.
"If we take a trip down the Chesa
l?-akc Bay in daytime we may sec
for ourselves the utter fallacy of the
idea that when a vessel appears 'hull
down" as it is called, it is because the
hull Is 'behind the w*ter." -Vessels
have been seen, and may often be ]
seen again, presenting the apixwrance |
spoken of and far?for away?beyond \
those vessels, the level shore line,
with its accompaniment of tall trees
towering up. in perspective, above the
'hull 'down' ships.
"Now the thing which is called
'proof of the world's roundness and
which Is presented to children at
school is that if we stand on the sea?
shore we may see the ships as they
approach us. absolutely 'coming up,'
and as we are able to see the highest
parts first, it is believed the lower
l>art is behind the earth's curve. If
this were the case?if the lower
parts of the ships were 'behind a hill

dicated by such a curve as this would
be so small as only to hold the people |
of a parish. *
"If we take a journey down the
Chesa|>eake Bay by night we see the
light at Sharp's Is'land for an hour be?
fore the vessel will be in a line with
the light and in the line of sight, and
we will find that in the whole journ-1
ey the light will not vary in the
slightest degree in its apparent ele- I
ration. But say that a distance of |
13 miles has been traversed, the as?
tronomer's theory of curvature de?
mands a difference?one way or the j
other?in the apparent elevation of
the light of 112 feet 8 inches. As a|
matter of fact, there is not a differ?
ence of 112 hairbreadths.
"It is a fact not so well known as I
it ought to be. that when a vessel, jn [

point when her hull is lost to our un- I
aided vision, a good telescope will

In several of the towns through which

hillside where people are living. In
one such esve bouse In Still. Sicily,
there was a rough hod on one side
of the cave, on the other an oil proas
turned by a donkey. Often I have seen
houses whose walls worn constructed
of brush and mud and the roofs made
