The development of the mind of the

the reflective facultle* develop quite is
early; in other* quite lato. Some are
very imaginative and love poetry; | 1*1
other* are not at all imaginative end I on

children develop a maihema.ical fac- could

liked, in order to promote his equable for
development For example, If his
memory was poor. his memory should to
be trained directly. This is wrong, ehret
The mind must proceed along the line» ened
of greatest activities. not along the j am«
lin»* «I the least activities. Let us see; more
what this mean* If achlld de ights to
read and write, but has poor technical I
memory, let that child read and write ' he
to her heart's content Let the memory
alone, but give exercise* in reproduc- ! him
Ing what is written or read, also in i the
comparison and association. The tant
memory will be thus trained without' a
I giving words or dates to be committed '
to memory. Much is said now concern
ing the training of thu retentive fscul- j of
ty. and the best conclusion of tho*e who
have studied the matter is that memory '
Is strong in proportion as the observa
tion. association and imagination are
strong. Careful habit* of observation
and the forming of habits of associating
similar things will always strengthen ' the
the memory. In no other way can
this work be accomplished.
j Then wisdom shows us that we the
should give such children as have poor he
memories a great deal of observation
work and association work, and it will
be seen very soon that tho memory will
assert its power. For example, if a
child dislike* to memorize date* in bis
lory, at first, give no dûtes In history »O
for the child to remember. But what
shall we do? Take this course: Tell a
story to-day. to-morrow tell another
one: let it follow in the order of time ui
after the preceding one; the next day
tell another one let this follow in the
order of time. Now. after several «h>
rie» are told and reproduced, ask which
one cnuie first, which second, which
third. Now, what relation has the sec
ond to the third nnd so on. After the of
order of relationship has been est all
llshcd. then tho date can com* in; but
not until this order of relationship ha*
been established should the date be
If this course be pursued, the
children will have no difficulty in re
mem boring dates and name* also.
The reason that some children do
not like numbers is because the faculty
of relation is not developed; the child

a most lm|Mirt part, for it ha* recorded

In tlie study of stars by this pro
cedure we learn how some are like our
sun. others giuwlng masse* of matter
just beginning to burn, and still others
nearly burnt out. like Arcturus and Al
debaran. We marvel, when we think
how feeble seems the light of tho stars,
to learn that only us much light can
coiuo through u slit 1 -.'tôt) of an inch a*
is porinitlod to affect tile sensitive
plate. Again, the movement of tlie {
earth would in tlie two hours required
to form an iinuge soon carry the light
off the plate were there not ingenious
mechanical apparatus hy which the im
age i* always kept at the same plui*o on
the plate
And now photography is not only
used for mapping out the known heav
en* but tlie t *mera reveals to us the
presence uf star* which the human eye
has not seen. For many year* Miss
Maria Mitchell and her assistants have
photographed tlie uver-changing sun
spot* Astronomers from all over the
orid have met in Paris and arranged
a plan for using photography to ob
tain a picture of the entire heavens.
Cameras will bo set up in ntunlre-s of

many negativi-s made of the entire con

catalogue two Million» of the brightest

precision, as until such maps exist
many other astronomical problems can
not be solved. We knov for Instance.

Thotographing rifle-bullets aud cannon

said to have been made not long since
in Berlin by Trof. Treeson, who
arranged within a cannon-ball a sort
of camera which recorded the charac

mitted light, and a sensitive plate
within the bs*l recorded the twists and
turns of the projectile in its passage
through tho air. The gun wa» fired
point-blank at the sun. which sent a
beam upon the plate, recording itself
a* a point, but as the ball swerved
died more away front the sun a spiral line
was formed and marked upon the plate.
