POINTS ABOUT TIME.
VARIATIONS AND THE CAUSES WHICH
ttt Earth* Revolutions on Ita Axis, To
gether with Its Journey Around the
I Sun, Are the Disturbing Factors —No
' Watch Is Perfectly Reliable.
If there is one single scientific problem
upon which more than another people
appear to get mixed that problem is
time. Standard time, local time, son
time are exceedingly difficult problems
for the public to puzzle over, and when
sidereal time enters the calculation t\ie
case is hopeless indeed. 1 have fre
quently of late seen so many letters, ad
dressed this and other journals, all
touching upon one or the other ofthese
chronological questions, that 1 have con
eraded a short note explaining the main
paints of difference would bo, at any
sate, timely. If it only suggests to the
young men in the business offices the
idea of going to work at 9». m., local
-mean time, and leaving off promptly at
4pm., Pacific standard time, the ques
tion will have been shown to possess a
practical side. The application of it,
however, is purely a matter of taste.
Well, to come to time, the great chro
nometer and regulator in chief to the
business, social and scientific world is the
earth itself. Turning upon its axis in the
period which we divide into twenty-four
hours, the sun appears to cross the me
ridian of each place on the globe once in
that interval. The moment at which it
creeses the meridian of any place (Green
wich), for example, is termed "local ap
parent noon" at that place. This would
he all very well if the earth and sun re
mained fixed in their relative positions;
or if the earth, completing, as it does, an
Krmnal revolution about the sun, did so
uniformly in a perfect circle and that
circle were in the same plane with the
motion of daily rotation. Then the suc
cessive intervals between the meridian
passages of the sun at Greenwich would
all be equal, and a perfect chronometer
met at 12 hrs., 0 mm., 0 sec, when the
sun transited today would indicate pre
cisely the same instant for "apparent
noon" at every date.
MOTIONS OF THE EARTH.
But the earth's path around the sun is
■ot a perfect circle; it is an ellipse, and
the motion in one portion of the ellipse is
more rapid than in another, and this
causes a slight variation in the intervals
between the solar passages. Again, the
plane of the earth's path around the sun,
«r the elliptic, is inclined 23>£ degs. to
Ihe plane of the equator in which the
<Utily rotation takes place, and conse
quently twice a year the intervals of
"apparent noon" are each about twenty
seconds greater and twice a year about
twenty seconds less than twenty-four
hours. To explain just why this results
-would require more of an investigation
into astronomical principles than is here
contemplated; but it is so, nevertheless,
and any text book will elucidate the rea
sons. A combination of the two effects
causes the sun to be apparently slow
fourteen minutes in February and fast
sixteen minutes in November. But in
fi>e course of a year the average comes
out all right, and therefore a "mean
solar day" of exactly hours
is adopted in the almanacs and used for
all purposes. This accounts for the dif
ference between mean time and sun time.
A regulator keeps the former; a sun dial
indicates the latter.
A few years ago (or prior to 1S84) every
large city in the United States had its
own local time, and this was for each
place the true mean solar time, obtained
as above indicated.
Consequently, a man traveling west
■ward from Washington would find his
watch fast, as follows: At Chicago, 42
minutes ; at Omaha, 1 hour 16 minutes;
at Denver, 1 hour 52 minutes; at Halt
Lake City, 2 hours 20 minutes, and final
ly, at San Francisco, 3 hours 2 minutes.
It will readily be recalled how much
annoyance was occasioned by all these
various corrections, both to trainmen
and travelers. About the year men
tioned a great reform was inaugurated.
Nowadays a traveler going westward
finds his watch fast from time to time,
but only the hour hand is in error. All
the clocks in the country indicate the
mm ate and second of Greenwich mean
time, bnt the hour is changed for each
15 dogs, of longitude. Washington time
is 5 hours slow of Greenwich; Chicago,
< hours; Denver, 7 hours. In San Fran
cisco we are 8 hours slow of the prime
meridian. All the intermediate cities
and towns are run on one system or an
other, according to their location in
longitude, the standards being eastern,
central, mountain and Pacific time. All
tiie time pieces on the coast are set by
Pacific standard time, which is 8 hours
alow of Greenwich mean time. There
fore, a watch which is set at San Fran
cisco solar time by means of a corrected
sun dial is still 9 minutes 42 seconds
slow of a Pacific standard time clock,
because we are that much in longitude
weat of the 120 th meridan, which forms
the eastern bonndary of northern Cali
fornia and on which only is the "Pacific
time" coincident with "local mean time.'

A Lord in a Ditch.
Lord Mnlgrave was distinguished by
a singularity of physical conformation,
having two distinct voices, the one
strong and hoarse, the other weak and
querulous, of both of which he occa
sionally availed himself. So extraordi
nary a circumstance probably gave rise
to a story of his having fallen into a
ditch on a dark night and calling for aid
in his shrill voice. A countryman com
ing up was about to help him, but Lord
Mulgrave, addressing him in a hoarse
tone, the peasant immediately exclaimed,
**Oh, if there are two of you in the ditch
you may help each other out of it"—

A few evenings later another little af

bishop tells as follows:

Great Men from an Accident.
The history of a certain American
family furnishes several examples of a
beneficent result of disabling accidents.
The young son of a farmer in a small
town in Massachusetts had his hand
crushed in his father's cider mill, and
being thus unfitted to gain his livelihood
by farming was sent in due time to the
academy to commence a preparation for
a professional life. He died a member
of the United States senate.
A boy who belonged to another branch
of the same faroily, in the vicinity of
Boston, cut hia r-oee badly and was long
confined to tk? fVjuse. His kind pastor
supplied him with books, and perceiving
that he had a natural aptitude for study
taught him Latin and finally induced
his parents to send him to college.
The young man was graduated at Har
vard and became a minister of the gos
pel. One of his sons was a general in the
army of 1812; another served his coun
try in congress.
The son who entered college had six
sons who were college educated men, all
prominent in their profession—one a
judge of the superior court of New
Hampshire and another a professor for
forty years in a New England college
and eminent as an author.
All this life of education and useful
ness, extending through three genera
tions, may be said to have started in a
little boy's cutting his legl—Youth's
One Child's Dream.
Harriet Martineou relates that, of her
many childish fancies, perhaps none
was so terrible as a dream she had at
four years old. "I dreamed," she says,
"that we children were taking a walk
with our nursemaid. Out of the public
house there came a stag with prodigious
antlers. Passing the pnmp, it crossed
the road to us and made a polite bow,
with its head on one side, and with a
scrape of one foot; after which it pointed
with its foot to the public house, and
spoke to me, inviting me in. The maid
declined, and turned to go home. Then
came the terrible part.
"By the time we were at our own door
it was dusk, and v/e went up the steps
in the dark; but in the kitchen it was
bright sunshine. My mother was stand
ing at the dresser, breaking sugar, and
she lifted vie up and set me in the sun.
and gave me a bit of sugar. Such wad
the dream whic;-. tx>ze me with horror!

Discouraging the Use of Tobacco.
Professor Smith, formerly of Bowdoin
college, did not like to have the students
chew tobacco during recitations and
took effectual means to break up the
practice. A boy who was called upon
to recite one day, not expecting to be
"pulled," as the saying goes, on the next
day in succession, would go into the
class and chew tobacco during the hour.
Whenever "Cosine" noted this he was
morally certain to ask that student a
few questions, and by keeping him up
fifteen minutes or so would manage to
put him in a position where he would
either have to swallow a copious amount
of tobacco or else choke. Silch vigorous
treatment had a beneficial effect.—Lew
A Neat Way of Patting It.
A neat compliment was uttered once
by General Romaine. Meeting Lady de

said at length. "Madame," returned
the gallant soldier, "when our eyes are

curs to us to ask a mineralogist for its

Tl*e Horses Knew the Tune.
A relation of mine, who has spent
many years in India, remembers well
how. when Living in Lucknow and en
joying the evening drive with other
English residents in the Indian city, the
carriage horses would toss their heads
and paw the ground imiKitiently when
the fir3t notes of "God Save the Queen'
were played by the military band every
evening. It was the last tune played,
the signal for dispersion.
A skeptic—or, perhaps, more than one
—having insisted that the horses only
knew the tune because it was always
played last, and they were able to calcu
late time, the experiment was tried of
playing "God Save the Queen" in the
middle, instead of at the end of the
evening. Instantly there was the same
excitement in the horses standing round
"the course." The same impatient toss
ing of the head and prancing of the feet,
the same general stampede and eager
ness to start homeward.
No one could any longer doubt that
they knew and recognized the air: in
fact, that they could tell one tune from
another. —London Spectator.
