from the New York Tribune.
That lovely orange-colored object
which gleams with unmatched splendor
high up In the eastern sky every clear
evening Just now Is the planet Mars.
Although one of the smalU-st of the
eight large bodies which revolve around
the sun, it has probably, excited more
popular Interest than either the giant
Jupiter, with his belts and great red
pot, or Saturn, encircled with a ring
that makes the circus manager turn
green with envy. Mars has only half
the earth's diameter, and only about
one-seventh its weight; but it Is be
lieved to be more nearly in the same
condition as the earth than any other
extra terrestrial sphere in the solar
system. And suspicions have been en
tertained that perhaps It might even be
Inhabited by turkey-eating, novel-reading,
opera-loving, cigarette-smoking
mortals like human beings. Hence,
whenever the earth catches up with it
In the race around the sun, as it does
once In every twenty-six months, and
comes within hailing distance of the
ruddy little ball, astronomers scrutin
ise It eagerly, just now the earth is
running about neck and neck with it,
and will continue to do so for two or
three weeks to come. On December 10
the earth, which has the inside track,
crosses a straight line drawn from the
sun to Mars, and the latter Is then said
to be "In opposition" to the sun.
DISTANCES FROM EARTH.
The earth does not "approach Mars
as closely at this opposition as It does
sometimes. His orbit Is much more
elliptical than the earth's, and the two
are further apart in some places than
in others. In early August, 1S92. they
came within 33,000,000 miles of each oth
er, and Mars then 'spanned an angle
of nearly twenty-seven seconds In Oc
tober he was 40,000.000 miles away at
the nearest, and had a diameter of
twenty-three and a half seconds; and
this time his least distance will be 62,
000,000 miles and his diameter only
eighteen seconds. A partial compensa
tion for this diminished size, however.
Is found in the greater elevation of the
planet above the southern, horizon,
when It crosses the meridian. On sev
eral recent occasions It was so low that
atmospheric impurities embarrassed
the astronomers who studied the Mar
tian surface; but on the present occa
sion the circumstances are exceptional
ly favorable in this respect.
How great an advantage this Is will
be partially realized when one recalls
the controversy recently started In re
gard to the extent of the atmosphere
of Mars. This has been considered less
than that of the earth's, but still rath
er considerable. One class of evidence
adduced in support of such a notion
was that which Hugging, Vogel and
other astronomical spectrnscopists be
lieved that hey had found years ago.
In the spectrum of Mars they detected
lines Indicative of the presence of wa
ter vapor, and this created the neces
sity of an aerial envelope in which the
water vapor could be suspended. Dur
ing the opposition of 1S94, however. Pro
fessor W. W. Campbell, of the Lick ob
Servotory, made spectroscopic observa
tions which led him to suspect that the
moisture previously detected was real
ly In the earth's own atmosphere, and
not in the environment of Mars. In
fact, he was Inclined to believe that the
planet was almost or quite as devoid
of air as the moon, wnlch Is credited
with an exceedingly small quantity.
Professor Campbell's announcement of
these observations and convictions cre
ated a sensation in the astronomical
world. The question Is now regarded
as an open one, and special researches
will doubtless be undertaken at the
present time with a view to its settle
ment. SEAS AND CANALS.
Another problem which Is receiving
a great deal of attention relates to
those dark areas hitherto called "seas"
and the narrower lines called "canals."
Are they really bodies and streams of
water, or are they masses and streaks
of vegetation? Perhaps three-fourths
or the surrace or Mars has a hue al
most uniformly yellowish-red. Pretty
much all of the northern hemisphere
(shown in the lower half of the draw
ings, because an astronomical telescope
ravens ine image;, ana a large portion
of the southern hemisphere, uresent
such an appearance. This area has
generally been taken for a land sur
face. A large tract surrounding the
South pole, and some detached, oblong
patches near it are greenish-blue in
color, and were long thought to be
oceans and seas. The narrow lines
called canals, which are not over fif
teen or twenty miles wide, and which
Intersect the continental area, are also
dark, sometimes definitely black and
sometimes only gray, but strongly re
sembling In Color the sombre-hued re
gions Just mentioned.
Now, while these various markings
nave been seen often enough in ex
actly the same position to give them
an appearance of permanence, and to
make possible an elaborate chart of tne
Martian surface, they have exhibited
some puzzling changes of outline and
tint. It will sometimes happen that a
so-called sea will be sharply defined.
On other occasions Its edges are vague,
their color shading away to a pale
gray, scarcely distinguishable from
continental borders which have also
lost something of their characteristic
hue. Moreover, the extent of the
"seas" is greater at one time than at
another. Many noticeable encroach
ments of the dark areas upon the
bright ones have been recorded. Then
again, the "canals" are more numer
ous at one time than at another. And
the phenomenon of doubling, first ob
served about fifteen years ago by the
Milanese astronomer, Schlaparelll. Is
TOO DREADFUL TO THINK OF.
"I say, Tommy, If ovary one of us wore stockints at big. at thorn, Santa Claus
wouldn't have toys enough to go around." Life.
also visible only at certain times, and
to very different degrees of abundance.
. THE SEASON OF MARS.
Inasmuch as the axis of Mars is tilt
ed over like the earth's only a little
more so the ruddy planet has seasons.
The gradual disappearance of white
patches around the poles, presumably
snow, every summer, and the forma
tion of dark belts around these shrink
ing areas are among the best known of
the seasonal changes oil Mars; but the
other variations referred to have also
been found to be related, to a great
extent, with the time of year at which
the observation was made. It was not
an unreasonable surmlBe. then, that
the occasional encroachment of dark
areas on the bright ones might repre
sent an inundation of low lying and al
most perfectly lrvel lands, in conse
quence of a slight rise of the sea. If,
as Is credible, the .uartlan oceans are
very shallow, one can understand why
their color fades out near the edges,
and how the access of a little water
from the polar regions might produce
the effect observed. So, too, with the
canals. If tney are veritable water
courses, and if the little dark spots
at their intersections be "lakes" (as
they have sometimes been called),
their visibility and the duplication of
both canals and lakes might well be de
pendent on the time and plenitude of
the water supply from the poles.
Schlaparelll. however, has sugg:sted
that the variations In the size and color
of the dark markings might possibly
be due t "changes of vegetation over
a vast area," and even the result of
"agricultural labor and Irrigation upon
a large scale." At the same time. ..e
emphasises the paucity of the informa
tion on the subject, and observes, with
true scientific caution, that the wide
liberty of supposition thus afforded
"constitutes the gravest obstacle to
acquisition of wtll-fnunded notions."
No definite proof of the existence of
either vegetables or animal life on
Mars has yet been afforded, althougn
the presumption In favor of the formfr
is probably stronger than that In sup
port of the latter-
THE DARK AREAS.
Professor William H. Pickering has
also advanced the theory that the dark
areas on Mars represent vegetation.
Ills most effective argument is that
light reflected from them 1" Jiot "polar
ized," as It should be if they are water,
except In the case of the temporary
belt formed around the malting polar
cap. It would seem to be of the ut
most importance, therefore, that care
ful tests be made with the polari9cope
by other skilled astronomers at this op
position, to verify or disprove Profes
sor Pickering's statement. Percival
Lowell, of Boston, who erected a spe
cial observatory at Flagstaff, Ariz.. In
1894 for the study of Mars, imagines
that the canals are belts of vegetation
lining water courses that are much
narrower and consequently are them
selves Invisible here. He thus assumes
that Mars has inhabitants of as much
Intelligence and engineering skill as
men possess; but he is almost alone in
considering the case proven. If one
will observe the distinction between
natural growths, like forest and prairie,
on the one hand, and, on the other, the
artificial flower bed and market gar
den, he will And It easy to accept the
vegetation theory In a general way,
without going so far as the enthusiast
ic Bostonlan does.
It ought to be pointed out in this con
nection that Mr. Lowell speaks of the
changes In tint and size of the dark
art-as and the development of the can
als as being gradual; but the veteran
Italian expert, who is everywhere re
garded the highest authority on this
subject, describes some of these phe
nomena, and especially the duplication
of the canals, and lakes, as occurring
rather suddenly. Of course, the abrupt
ness with which these things are first
observed may be due to some extent to
obscurities in the Martian atmosphere
and the earth's own, which would hide
for several days a gradual change.
Then, with a rapid Improvement in the
conditions of seeing.the situation would
be more distinctly and unexpectedly
revealed. A further comparison of
notes as to the rapidity with which these
alterations occur is, apparently, great
ly needed. It might assist in determin
ing the nature of the dark patches and
lines.
'"DOUBLING" PHENOMENON.
The fact that both canals and lakes
(Mr. Lowell calls the latter "oases")
are sometimes doubled, the duplicate
lying exnetly parallel with and about
seventy-five or a hundred miles away
from the original, renders the theory
of construction by the inhabitants of
Mars a still more difficult one to ac
cept. It Is hard to understand the mo
tive for an arrangement. Then again,
while it is conceivable that a system
of cross canals and gates might account
for the time Intervals between the ap
pearance of one twin and the other, the
seeming rapidity with which the latter
develops, often within twenty-four
hours, is not easily reconciled with
what we have observed In connection
with terrestrial vegetation along arti
ficial water-courses. There Is another
queer thing about the "gemination" of
the lakes. Their shapes differ greatly,
from time to time, as if they were the
products of accident rather than de
sign. For instance. Ismenlus is at
the intersection of the canals Euphrates
(running north and south) and Proton
llus (running east and west). Now, on
Dec. 23, 1881, Schlaparelll perceived that
the latter was double, and there were
two lakes, one north of the other, and
both' greatly elongated In an east and
west direction. The lakes were.ln fact,
bands continuous with the channels of
Protonllus. but much wider. But on
May 27. 1888, the distinguished Italian
discovered Euphrates double and Pro
tonllus single. Ismenlus was again a
pair of twins, but utterly unlike the
twin lakes of 1881. In the first place.
their positions relatively to each other
were different. One was due west of
the other. Secondly, their shape was
changed. They were round, not elon
gated. A large number of such cases
can be cited, which cannot easily be ex
plained on any theory of. design, but
which strongly suggest mere rhanre.
At the next opposition of Mars, late
in January, 1899. the planet will be still
further away from the earth than he Is
this time, but at an equally good eleva
tion. The outlook for new and start
ling revelations during the next few
years Is not, therefore, particularly
ooq.
