WEIGHT OF THE SUN.
HOW THE ASTRONOMERS SOLVE
THIS WONDERFUL PROBLEM.
if You Will Multiply 333,264 by Seven
sextillions, You Will Get Approxi
mately the Number of Tons of Mat
ter Contained In the Great Orb.
To weigh the sun, moon, earth or
any other body, said Professor Edgar
L. Larkin, the celebrated director of
Echo Mountain observatory, to the
writer, is not a very difficult matter,
though to those ignorant of astronomy
and mathematics it would perhaps ap
pear so. Of course weight is merely a
relative term, for at the exact center
of gravity a body weighs nothing at
all. Weight varies as we approach the
gravitation point or recede from it,
and the expression as employed in ev
eryday life-when we buy a pound of
steak or a ton bf coals-simply means
the weight used on the surface of the
earth because we live there.
Now, supposing you are desirous of
weighing the earth, how would you go
about it? Well, if your education had
been neglected and you were in conse
quence ignorant of mathematics you
might decide to cut up this terrestrial
globe of ours in blocks and bring each
block to the surface of the earth and
there weigh it on an ordinary pair of
scales. The operation would doubtless
be a costly and fatiguing one, and per
haps many unscientific landowners
might object to your carrying off their
property even though you explained
that it was merely as a temporary
loan. But let us for arguments sake
suppose that you succeeded.
Well, having carried each block to
the surface (and many of them would,
of course, have been brought from the
very center of the earth) one at a
time (returning each to its proper place
before weighing the next) and having
discovered that each block weighed a
ton, then before your labors ended and
the last block of earth had been placed
on the scales you would have dealt
Tith rather less than seven sextillions.
This of course is a tremendous num
ber of tons for any moving mass to
weigh, but there is a time twice each
year when the earth actually weighs
nothing at all. In October last this
earth gradually began to lose weight
like some huge giant dying of a de
eline until at a certain moment of time
it wveighed only an ounce. then half an
ounce. then a quarter, and finally. just
for about the fifty-thousandth part of
a second..it weighed absolutely nothing
whatever-not even so much as a soap
bubble which a baby might blow away.
To realize this you must remember
that the earth does not travel round
the sun in an exact circle, so that the
distance from the sun is always vary
ing, which of course alters the power
of attraction or, in other words, the
earth's weight. But in October and
April of each year the earth is at an
exact average distance during the frac
tion of a second. at which time, as I
have said before, it weighs nothing.
How short a space of time this is may
be judged from the fact that the earth
moves at the rate of eighteen and a
half miles every second.
But to weigh the earth in the manner
suggested would be a very costly mat
ter, and so it is found to be more sat
isfactory to employ mathematics, when
we shall arrive at the same results, as
suming of course that we are correct
in ouir deductions. And now as to the
most usual means employed in weigh
ing the sun. Having satisfied ourselves
as to the true weight of the earth, we
call that "One" or 'Unity." That is
the basis on which we work.
The next thing to do is to mount to
some elevation--the top of a tower or
the roof of a house will answer our
purpose very well-drop a stone and
find out how far it will fall in one~ sec
ond of time and what its exact rate of
speed will be at the end of the first
This is not so easy as it sounds, but
we can spare curselves the fatigue of
calculating, for after 300 years scien
tists have by means of the most deli
cate instruments arrived at the proved
conclusion that at the end of the first
second the stone will be at a distance
of 10.1 feet from the starting point and
will be then traveling at the rate of
32.2 feet per second. This 32.2 is the
most important factor in our calcula
tions and has been called the astro
nomical scales, for by means of it we
can weigh the sidereal universe.
Now, here, said Professor Larkin,
taking a paper- from his desk, is an ar
ticle which I wrote some time ago on
the weighing of the sun, and I do not
think you can do better than make an
extract from it, wvhich will save me
much needless repetition, and he hand
ed me the manuscript, from which I
quote the following paragraphs:
"Every object in the celestial vault
seen by the eye of man is a falling
body. The earth is a body forever fall
ing toward the sun and the moon for
ever toward the earth. If we can find
with what speed the earth is falling to
ward the sun at the end of our exact
second a clew is obtained that will lead
through a maze of figures to the mass
of the sun. This must be true, for it
has been discovered that if the earth
contained quadruple Its present quan
tity of matter the stone would fall at
the rate of 64.4 feet per second. And
Newton discovered that if the stone be
taken 3,958 miles away from the eatt
and dropped Its speed at the end of the
first second will be S.05 feet. But 3,955
miles from the earth is twice as far
from the center as is the surface, and
8.05 feet is one-fourth of 32.2. But 4 Is
the square of 2, so gravity diminishes
as. the square of the distance increases
and directly as the matter increases.
"The earth is 93,000,000 miles from
the sun, and this, divided by 3,95,
equals approximately 23,496. There
fore, take a stone to the distance of
the sun and it will be 23,496 times far
ther from the center of the earth than
the surface is. Now square this 23,
49. Multiply 32.2) by- 12 and the prod
uct will be 3SG.4-the number of inches
In 32.2 feet. Divide 386.4 by the big
number squared and the quotient will
be .0000007 of an inch, the speed with
which the stone w~ill be falling at the
end of the first second.
"This is exceedingly slow, but then
gravity exerted by the mass of the
earth 93,000,000 miles away is natural
ly somewhat weak. But the center of
the earth is that distance from the cen
ter of the sun and actually falls every
second toward the sun with a speed at
the end of a second having a velocity
of .233285 of an inch, which is some
thing less than one-fourth of an inch.
Divide .233285 by .0000007 and the
quotient is 333,204-that is to say, there
are 333,2G4 times more matter in the
sun than in the earth. If, therefore,
we multiply this number by seven sex
tillions wd find how many tons the sun

POVERTY A DISEASE.
The Result of Bad Living, Bad Thin1C
ing and of Sinning.
A large part of the poverty of the
world is a disease, the result of cen
turies of bad living, bad thinking and
of siuning. We know that poverty is
an abnormal condition because it does
not fit any human being's constitution.
It contradicts the promise and the
prophecy of the divine in man. There
are plenty of evidences that abun
dance of all that is good was man's
inheritance. that if he claims it stout
ly and struggles persistently toward It
he will gain it.
The fact is that a large part of the
poverty of the world is due to down
right laziness, shiftlessness, an un
willingness to make the effort, to fight
for a competence. It does not matter
how much ability one may have, if he
does not have the inclination and the
energy to use it it will atrophy. Lazi
ness will ruin the greatest genius. It
would kill the ambition of an Alexan
der or a Napoleon. No gift or talent is
great enough to withstand it. The
love of ease has wrecked more careers
than anything else except dissipation,
and laziness and vice usually go to
gether. They are twins.
There are certain traits of a strong
character which are incompatible with
preventable poverty. Self reliance and
a manly independence are foundation
stones in strong characters. We often
find them largely developed in the
man who is poor in spite of all his ef
forts to get away from his poverty,
who is the victim of misfortune and
disasters which he could not control.
But the man who Is poor because he
has lost his courage, his faith in him
self, or because he is too lazy to pay
the price for a competence lacks these
qualities and is so much less a man.
He is a weak character compared with
the man who has developed powerful
mental and moral muscle in his ener
getic, persistent efforts to gain a com
petence and to make the most of him
When you make up your mind that
you are done with poverty forever, that
you will have nothing more to do with
it, that you are going to erase every
trace of it from your dress, your talk.
your actions, your home, that you are
going to show the world your real
mettle, that you are no longer going to
pass for a failure, that you have set
your face persistently toward better
things, a competence, an independence,
and that nothing on earth can turn you
from your resolution, you will be
amazed to see what a re-enforcing
power will come to you from this in
creased confidence and self respect.
The most dangerous thing about pov
erty is that its victims often become
reconciled to it and take it for granted
that it is their fate. Because they
cannot keep p appearaces and live In
the same style as their more wealthy
neighbors, poor people often become
discouraged and do not try to make
the best of what they have. They do
not "put their best foot forward" and
endeavor with all their might to throw
off the evidences of poverty. If there
Is anything that paralyzes power it is
the effort to reconcile ourselves to our
unfortunate environment instead of re
garding it as abnormal and trying to
get away from it.-Success.

er named Holmes who tried a trick like
that. He was afterward tried in the

persons who took to the long boat,
which was greatly overloaded and con

Abraham's men threw overboard six
teen passengers, two of whom were

held that a sailor is bound by law if

the life of passengers. Furthermore,
the court held that while two sailors
might struggle with each other for the
possession of the same plank which
could save but one, if a passenger
were on the plank even the law of ne

"'Why, I never inquired,' he said.
'He just signed articles In the regular

A Box on the Ear and a Box With a
The following anecdote was written
autobiographically by nMme. Feuillet,
wife of the famous French writer. At
the time of the incident she was a
young girl of seventeen, living with
her parents in a provincial town of
which her father was mayor. One
day news came that Louis Napoleon
intended passing through and would
spend one night in the town. As may
or Mme. Feuillet's father had to ar
range the details of the reception and
festivals to be given in the emperor's
honor, while it was agreed that his
daughter must present him with a bou
quet at the ball to be given in the even
Father and daughter were pleased
enough, but one person In the mayor's
household suffered acutely. Mme. Feuil
let's mother was an ardent royalist,
and to her the new imperial dynasty
appeared an intolerable usurpation.
According to her daughter, the ar
rangements for Napoleon's arrival
pulled her two ways. She was pleased
that her daughter should have been
chosen for prominence, anxious that
her ball dress should be the most be
coming possible, proud in her maternal
instincts and at the same time exas
perated, reluctant, furious a royal re
ception should be given at all to a man
she considered an upstart and an ad
venturer. The day came, and the fu
ture Mme. Feuillet, with a string of
other young girls dressed in white, was
placed along the line of -procession.
When it passed everybody shouted and
cheered, and the girl, carried away by
the excitement on every side of her,
did the same. Suddenly she felt a
burning, stinging sensation upon one
cheek, and before she could realize
what had happened she was being
dragged back out of the crowd by her
mother, whose face was crimson and
whose eyes were blazing with anger.
Then the girl understood. Unable to
bear her own daughter joining the en
emy and crying out "Long live Napo
leon!" she had publicly and furiously
boxed her ears and was now dragging
her ignominiously home like a child in
The girl spent the afternoon on her
bed sobbing with the shock and the
shame of what had happened. The
great big bouquet for the evening
stood in a jug and perfumed her little
bedroom; her snowy ball dress lay
spread over a chair. She dressed final
ly, feeling the savor gone out of life,
but when from under an arch of flow
ers in the ball room she made her lIttle
speech and presented her bouquet ex
citement returned to her. Louis Napo
leon took them, she thought, somewha1
coldly, and, being very prett as wel
as seventeen, the girl felt chilled and
little inclined to go over to the politica
views of her mother. But the nex
morning as Louis Napoleon was step
ping into his carriage to leave he asket
that she might be sent for. When sh
came he thanked her again for th4
beautiful bouquet of bright flowers shi
had given him the evening before
though they had not been more brigh1
than the* lovely eyes above them-anC
in return he begged her to accept z
small remembrance of his pleasure ani
gratitude. The carriage left, and th
girl opened the.little case he had Pu
in her hands. A beautiful diamond or

If he expected to be tendered a pasi
