Then study the constellation you wish to find, for a few minutes, and go out and look for it. Find the great square of Pegasus first, and the rest will come easily.

Let us hope that you have found the more important constellation; on the two maps already published say Cas siopeia and the Little Hear, Sagittarius, the Eagle, the Swan and the Lyre. If you have watched them ,iust a little from hour to hour in the evenings, you tave found out for yourselves that they seem to move from east to west, just as the sun and moon do. A little watch ing from night to night will give you just as satisfactory answers to all the other questions suggested.

"Spytis" is the prevalent disease in Germany nd England at present. In both coun tries any innocent tourist with a camera who happens to stray into the neigh borhood of a fort, a dockyard or a mili tary post is liable to find himself pounced on by the authorities and in carcerated in a dungeon until he can demonstrate that Le is not employed by the " iiitelligen'c dcpaitment" of the rival power. Tt is no inii-niimum thing in rural England for erit IniMasiii- boy scouts to shadow for iays any' M ran;: or with a (..'rinari a-ce:;t wiio appear it) the iie:ghborhod, and -a.j :iv on record where tourists havf ; ;.pf't i to the poiicc for protection aa'iiiv'T t bp zeal of the ani.-itenr deti-'-tivi-s.

Quite the funniest situation which has yet arisen is now in process of devel opment. A few days ago it was an nounced in the English paj-ers that two Englishmen, who gave their names as Brandon and Trench, had been arrested at Borkum, one of the Frisian Islands, where Germany is erecting immense fortifications to protect the mouth of the Ems. One of them was caught within the military works at night with a sketchbook and papers containing drawings which an ordinary tourist would scarcely be likely to make were al--o captured. The men refused to say anything about themselves, and the British press made a great fuss about the outrage on two innocent tourists. The Germans, however, still have them under Jock and key, and before long wiil try them for espionage. Brandon and Trench, it is said, are ic.illy naval otlicers in the British serv ice, and when they were caught they were on "intelligence service" the polite name for spying. for the British admiralty. Of course, the -admiralty had to d isown tbem. It is one of the risks which a spy takes when he under takes his job. He need expect no as sistance from his country if he is caught, for it is one of the axioms of polite diplomacy that no such thing as spying exists, and, of course, to try to aid a captured spy would give the game , away. ! However, Brandon and Trench have influential friends, and the admiralty was implored by them to do something, so a quiet hint was sent out to all the English coast fortifications and military ' posts that if they could pick up a Ger man spy or two it would be appreciated at headquarters. Now comes the really delicious sequel. This week the British papers announced, with a great show of black headlines, that a real Geiman spy; had been captured at Bortsmouth. He ; was lying on the glacis of a fort mak- Ing sketches, when he was observed by some English officers, who promptly sent . out a patrol and arrested him. j A great show of secrecy was made, ile was blindfolded before he was brought into the fort, and when he was in, a double guard was placed at the door of the mom he was confined in. lie was aliowed to eat at the offi cers' incwj with a guard behind his ch.-iir. The astonished young man said quite frankly that he was Lieutenant Helm of the Overman pioneer regiment, and gave up a few sketches that he pos sessed. It has not been stated whether he pointed out that the fort he was sketching was obsolete and more inter esting as a ruin than as a modern mili tary work, but such is the case. It is al;-o a fact that he could have bought all the picture post cards of the fort lie wanted in Portsmouth for one cent each. The admiralty and the war office are greatly pleased at the capture, and con sider it highly important. It is doubt ful, however, if Lieutenant Helm will ever be tried for espionage in England. Some dark night, in all probability, he will be turned quietly out of a back door of the fort and told to go home and say nothing more about the matter, and about the same time Brandon and Trench will make their reappearance among their friends in England. Of course, tins will not be an exchange of spies, for-ou see there is no such thing as spying in the eyes of the respective governments, and, of course, they couidii't exchange spies who don't ex ist. But tlormany and England will both got their officers back, and every one will be satisfied. Jack Widows are wiser than maids in one respect, at leist What's the answer?
