What Are Sun-Spots T
The great atmosphere of the sun
whose breath is flame, is yet, eavs Mr
Proctor, so cool compared with hi-. in
tensely glowing surface that it absorb
a large proportion of his light as wel
os of his heat. But while the goner.«
absorptive action of the sun is wonder
fui, the story i^> still mere wonderfu
which the spectroscope has to tell abou:
the specific absorptive effects due to it
constitution. We find that whereas :
our air the vapor of water is present 0*
condense into water drops apd forii
clouds at certain levels, and to chang*
to ice crystals and form cirrus at hig
levels), in the sun the a'mosphere i>
laden with the vapors of iron, copper
zinc, sodium, magnesium, and like e'e
ments, to form clouds of metallic droits
great giitherings of met.illic cystals
while the rains that pour down tow ai C
the concealed true globe of the sun Hre
mighty showers of molten metal. Whci
a hurricane occurs in the son, the
clouds which form the sun's surfa* e aie
swept along, or whirled around, Dot at
the rate at which we measure our
storms, but witli a velocity compared
with which their swiltest motion i- at
rest. The solar tornadoes îage, not
over a few hundred square miles, but
over regions as large as the wl ole sur
face of the earth, over hundreds, even
thousands of mi lions of square miles;
and they travel over these enormous
regions at a rate not of so many miles
per hour or per m*nute, but of many
miles, sometimes more tli >n a hundred
miles, in every second of time.
Such storms are in progress now,
when we see the spots upon the sun.
Such storms tell us of the activity of
that great central engine whose throbs
are the life-beats of the solar system.
We measure the sun's work, perforce,
by our own forms of work. We speak
of his emission of light and heat as cor
responding to what would result from
the burning of eleven thousand million*
of raillions of tons of the finest coal in
every second of time. But what mind
can conceive the vitality of that mighty
orb which seems so silent and so still in
oursk es? The throbbing of the great
engiue which beats out light and life to
the whole family of planets can only l e
seen by the mind's eye, and as yet that
eye is no more capable of seeing the
sun's work as it really is than is the
bodily eye of seeing the distant millions
of suns which the great gauging tele
scopes of the Herschels bring within
our ken. Nor can the mental ear
hearken to the uproar and tumult with
which the works of the great central en
gine is accomplished^ or imagine what
would be heard if one could visit, that
spot which looks like a tiny speck on
the sun's surface, and, passing below
the limits of the solar air so that sound
waves could reach him, could find (as
assuredly he would if he could live at a
temperature which turns the hardest
metal into vapor) all forms of noise
known to ua—the roar of the typhoon,
the crash of thunder, even the hideous
groaning of the earth-throe—surpassed
a million fold by what takes place within
every square mile of that disturbed re
Endurance of Women Upon the Stage.
The only wonder over actresses act
prima donnas is that they are'so hardy
and bear exposure so well. In winter
weather that has turned half the usua
audieuc« s into coughing, sneezing and
otherwise suffering persons, these 1 »dies
appear on the stage and stand in all its
draughts with bared throats, shoulders
and arms. The men of the company
are m ell protected in the visual b oad
cloth, and the audience may sd i-.i over
coats and shawls, while the fair singers
and players may get overheated or not
by tlieir efforts,' but still are dressed as
for a summer night or a ball-room.
There are very few artists but are aide
to undergo an extraordinary fatiuue as
we 1 as exposure. Madame Nilsson's
Bore throat in the West, and M r ss
Mather's pneumonia in Boston, are
an ong the few instances whore exposure
had the same results that would have
happened in private life .—Botitov Pont.
