OUR NEIGHBOR STARS.
THERE ARE SCHOLARS WHO THINK
( THEY ARE INHABITED.
Science Has N<> Means of Proving It, but if
Not the Case Why Were They Created?
Some of the Conclusions Which Have
Been Beached by tbe Professor.
"You remember," said the professor,
as reported in the Cincinnati Times-Star,
"my allusion some time ago to the fact
that Mars resembled the earth in many
of its observed features. It has for years
been the dream of astronomy to prove
that life exists in some or all of the mill
ions of stars which surround us. The
poetic astronomer reasons in this way:
All things were created for the use and
support of living beings. What use do
the myriads of heavenly bodies subserve
if there is no life? Would not the earth
be altogether devoid of interest if life
did not exist? If there was neither life
nor thought what would be the signifi
cance of the universe? Reflections of
this sort enkindle the lively imagination,
and speculation as to what the science of
astronomy will eventually reveal runs
to extravagant extremes.
BUBJECTS OF SCD2NCE IN THE FUTURE.
"Mathematical astronomers, like New
ton and La Place, arouse by their mar
velous calculations a high state of en
thusiasm. But is this the only line
along which we can work? The pre
diction of eclipses, the division of time,
the mapping out of the courses of cer
tain heavenly bodies with perfect ac
curacy, the discovery of comets, planets
and suns—are those to be the final tri
umphs of the science which has revolu
tionized human thought at two or three
stages of man's history? Let me answer
in the words of an enthusiast: 'That is
not the aim. Behold those millions of
suns, similar to that wliich gives light
to the earth, and, like it, sources of
movement, activity and splendor; well,
those are the subjects of the science of
the future—the study of universal and
eternal life. You are going to witness
the dawn of a new day. Mathematical
astronomy will give place to physical
astronomy, to the true study of nature.'
"He goes on to say that by the study
of nature he means the study of the con
ditions of life in the various parts of the
universe, the physical condition of the
planets, their geographical aspects, their
climatology and their meteorology. It
will probably be proved that Mars and
Venus are peopled by thinking beings;
that Jupiter has not yet reached a con
dition where life can be supported; that
the conditions are such on Saturn that
the beings which inhabit it are of an
entirely different organization from our
earth dwellers. Still further, astronomy
will show that the earth is but one place
in the celestial country, and that man is
a citizen of the heavens. It will thus
lead up to a new philosophy, the religion
of superior minds.
NEITHER PROVED NOR DISPROVED.
"Such is the dream and such the final
object of the telescopic search. The
Lest that can be said for it from a scien
tific standpoint is that the facts ob
served neither prove it nor disprove it.
There is only one body where the condi
tions are believed to be such as to sup
port intelligent beings of our kind. But
that is inconclusive. We can observe
■with our telescopes but three or four out
of the millions of heavenly bodies. More
over, there can be definite adaptation.
Should our temperature be greatly raised
or lowered, life as it exists now would
disappear from the face of the earth; but
perhaps there are forms of life which
wonld thrive under the conditions winch
are fatal to us.
"Again, millions of years passed by
■before life got a foothold on our globe,
according to the best evidence that we
have, and for millions of years after life
is extinct here it is expected that our
planet will roll on through space. The
period of intelligent man is but a mo
ment out of an immeasurable lapse of
time. It is not probable that, if it were
possible to visit each one of the 50,000,000
Btars visible through onr telescopes, we
should find more than one or two at the
best where our stage has just been
"Whether the stars are inhabited or
not, we know something about the ap
pearance of the universe as presented at
some of them by analogy.
"In the solar system of Gamma, in
the constellation of Andromeda, instead
of one sun, shining with a white light,
any possible observer would behold three
suns—a yellow sun, a blue sun and a
green sun. As one of these suns would
be setting another would be rising, and
the color of objects would be constantly
changing. When the blue sun should be
in the zenith all the landscape—the rocks
and the waters —would reflect the blue
rays, throwing, perhaps, slight tinges of
gold or green, due to one of the other
suns as it was setting or rising.
"This is but a suggestion of some of
the magnificent sights which must be
presented near the multiple, triple and
double stars, and we know of this
through telescopic observation.
"The double stars especially love to
show brilliant complementary colors,
taking the hue that will contrast most
charmingly with that of the next star—
a rose colored one beside an emerald, a
sapphire blue with a pale yellow prim
rose for a neighbor, white and ruby,
gold and purple, sea green and orange,
each increasing the beanties of tho
"There is a nebula on the Southern
Cross which is composed of 110 stars, of
which eight of the more conspicuous
ones are colored various shades of red,
green and blue; the whole gives the ap
pearance here of a rich piece of jewelry.
What must be the infinite variety and
beauty of the coloring in the near vicin
ity? Sir John Herschel said that the ef

group was that of 'a superb piece of

Will a Corpse Bleed?
Formerly there was a popular belief
in a widespread superstition that the
corpse of a murdered person would
bleed afresh from the wounds that had
caused death did the murderer touch it
or even allow his eyes to rest upon it.
Tho belief is shown to have been uni
versally established in Scotland as late
as lb'o'B. In that year one Philip Stands
field was arrested for the murder of a
person who had been buried several
days. Although the man had lain
in the grave almost a fortnight, Sir
George Mackinzie, the crown counsel,
caused the body to be exhumed and
brought into open court to apply what
people thought would be the test of
Staudsfield's guilt or innocence. The
sworn deposition of several witnesses is
"God Almighty himself was pleased to
bear a share in tho testimonies which we
produced. That divino power which
makes the blood circulate during life
has ofttimes, iv all countries, opened a
passage for it after death upon such oc
casions. After tho wounds had been
sewed up, and the body designedly
shaken up and down— and, which is most
wonderful, after the body had been
buried several days, which naturally
causes the blood to congeal—upon
Staudsfield's touching it the blood darted
and sprang out, to the great astonish
ment of the surgeons who were there to
wat«h the event. Standsfield, astonished
more than they, threw down the body,
crying, 'Oh r God! Oh, God!* aud, clean
ing his hands, grew so faint that the
doctors had to givo him a cordial." —St.
A Practical Lesson.
One chilly evening tho sitting room iv
which my pupils und I sat was warmed
by a grate tire. Shaking out some small
live coals, I bade the boys observe which
of them turned black soonest. They
were quick to see that the smallest did,
but they were unable to tell why. They
wero reminded of the rule they had
committed to paper, hut to no purpose,
until I broke a, large glowing coal into a
score of fragments which became black
almost at once. Then one of them cried,
"Why, smashing that coal gave it more
surface 1" This young fellow was study
ing tho elements of astronomy at school,
so I had him give us some account of
how the planets differ from one another
in size, how the moon compares with the
earth in mass, and how vastly larger
than any of its worlds is the sun.
Explaining to him tho theory of the
solar system's fiery origin, I shall not
soon forget his .feen delight—in which
the others presently shared—when it
burst upon him that because the moon
is mnch smaller than the earth it must
be much colder; that, indeed, it is like a
small cinder compared with a large ope.
It was easy to advance from this to un
derstanding why Jupiter, with eleven
times the diameter of tho earth, still
glows faintly in the sky, and then to
note that the sun pours out its wealth
of heat and light because the immensity
of its bulk has, comparatively speaking,
so little surface to radiate from.—George
lies in Popular Science.
Ono of the Bravest of Deeds.
An incident of tho battle of Waterloo
heard from the great duke himself was
told by Lord Shaftesbury, tho philan
thropist, to the late Sir George Burns, in
whose biography it is given by Mr. Ed
win Hodder. At one moment in the
battle the Duke of Wellington was left
alone, his aids-de-camp having been dis
patched with messages. A gentleman
in plain clothes rode up to him and said,
"Can I be of any use, sir?"
The duke looked at him and instantly
.said, "Yes; take that pencil note to the
commanding officer" (pointing to a reg
iment in the heat of the engagement).
Tho note was taken and delivered, its
bearer galloping through the thick of the
fight to execute its commission. After
the battle tho duke made every inquiry,
but never could find out to whom he was
indebted for this brave service. He told
Lord Shaftesbury that he considered
this one of the most gallant deeds that
had ever como under his notice, seeing
that it was done without prospect of
honor or toward,—London News.

5-Cent Deposit Stamps.
At the annual meeting of the Board of Direc
tors of the above institution it was resolved, in
order to increase the usefulness of the Bank,
and to encourage small deposits, that the sys
tern of 5 cent deposit stamps be adopted after
January 1, 1 SIM. This system has been in use
many years in Europe, and has recently been
adopted in the United States, and is regarded as
very beneficial, tending to teach children and
young people the advantage of saving money.
Agents will be appointed in all parts of the
city and county for the sale of 5 cent deposit
stamps. Each purchaser of two deposit stamps
will be furnished with a book often leaves, each
leaf ruled for twenty stamps. The agent will
send the name and number of each book
chased to the Bunk. ■ Whenever any depositor
has filled a leaf with twenty stamps, he can
bring this or send it by mail to the Bank. You
Will then receive " regular deposit book, with
one dollar to your credit, and whenever another
leaf is tilled and sent to the Bank another dollar
is entered on your book. Or, the entire stamp
book of ten leaves may be filled and sent to
the Bank at one time.
The Main-street Savings Bank and Trust Co.,
incorporated October 28. ISS9, has had SOO de
positors during the year.
The Bunk is already on a paying basis, nnd its
growth has been very satisfactory to its depos
itors and stockholders. Its Board of Directors is
