Many people believe that: certain modern illnminants are dangerous to the eyes on account of their ultra violet or 'actinic radiations.' Dr, Louis Bell and, Dr. F. H...yerhoeff have made an Extensive investigation oif the. ef fects pf radiation on the. various parts of the eyej fromthe corneal epithelium back to the retina. In an, article in Scieoce -the investigators report that no artificial source Of light pro duces enough ultra violet radiation- to be of the slightest danger to the eye. Such pathologic Or injurious action as' they have been able to detect ex perimentally from ultra violet rays Is confined -to a strictly limited region of the spectrum, and perfectly definite laws govern its quantity and "effect Actual experiments on the human eye show conclusively that no concentra tion of radiation- tn the -retina from any artificial illuminaht :- is' great enough to "produce 'injury "Under any practical conditions. Protective glasses are useful only, they conclude, in cut ting off dazzling light. y - ' Carriage In Japan. . A Japanese husband is allowed only one wife, but to marry is sometimes ft much more serious matter than with 'tis. v Either the husband must be form ally, adopted into ' the family -of the wife or the wife into the family of the husband, the couple . being absorbed into one family and subject to its discipline. As ' a , rule, this - custom Weighs more heavily on the Tride than on the husband, -for she must not only obey her husband,' but' every5 member of his family of an older generation thani himself; hence a young woman often longs for old age,' so that she may wield authority 'over the younger generations. To bring about a mar riage in Japan an intermediary' is ap pointed, whose duty it is to introduce the parties and to look to every'- ar rangement of the wedding. He re mains through life the, guide, philos opher and friend of tbe married cou ple, who refer all matters, all misun derstandings, to his counsel. ; Pearson's.'- , - ' : ... 7 . Napoleon a Good Reader. Napoleon not only read a great deal, but I'ead with profit. His memory was extraordinary. Take, for instance, his knowledge of Roman civil law, long passages of which he once reeled off by heart to the astonishment of the state council engaged with him in the production of the Code Napoleon. To one of the councilors h explained how he gained his legal learning. When a young ,!ieutenant he found in the cup board of a prison room in which he was confined a ponderous tome of Ro man law. "You can easily imagine," he said, "what 'a valuable prize that book was. When, at the . end of ten days, I recovered my: freedom I was saturated with Justinian and the Ro man legal decisions." Napoleon add ed that the old book was covered with marginal notes so much so. that he could not have been idle if his im prisonment had "lasted a century." . I ? : A NEW LINE i) A.
