The area of the whole star spbero is conse quently about 200,000 times the area cf the fall moon.

As the area of tho moon's disk contains about 70 square minutes of arc, there would noS be an average o,cven one star to each cquare minute. A pair ot stars half a luwutc, or thirty seconds, apart would fonn a very, wide double star, and with stars placed at even this distance the moon's disk would cover about 3,000, or six times the actual number visible in the largest telescopes.

Whether it is an Amer ican in Europe, or a European in America, the result is much the same. We like the things to which we are accustomed. When Edmond About was in Greece he earned matters so far as to object to eating gret-n peaches. He was in the ba zaar at Ath-tta. "Wouldn't it 1 possible to get Some npa peaches?" he asked the vender. "I think not," answered the Athenian. "But pray tell mo why?" "We have no good roads. If the far rara should try to fcriny ripo fruit to mar ket on mule-hack It would arrive in the shape of marcsalcde." "JBnt at Corfu, also, tho peaches wcro green and they have good rans and bring tho fruit to town In wagons.' "All, well," eaid the raan, "there Is another resien. Tho farmers liave no money and they have creditors. They can't wait for tho fruit to get rip?." There, ss.ya About, you have a fair ex ample ot the state f Grecian agriculture. A Trench gardener, being at Smvrna, no ticed that the Greeks had almost no veg etables in their gardens tomatoes every where, and scarcely anythisg else. "Why don't you raise other things?" he asked. "Asparagus, now. Your soil Is Just right You would make a fine thing of it I will furpish you with seeds." ' "How soon should we get crops?" "In four years at the Ungest." "Four years. Arc you crazy? Do you suppose wo would spend money to get something back in four years? We would be bankrupt twenty times over." Youth's Companion. 3 O fe Drunkenness in England. In England, during one year for which re turns have been furnished, there were 142 , 725 convictions for drunkenness, of which 1 1 ,178 were for offenses committed between noon and midnight on Sundays. This does notshow that there wasexcessive indulgence on Sabbath days more than on others. In Wales the proportion of Sunday convictions was still less, numbering only 772 out of a total of 10,34.7. Compared with this re turn for the whole or Wales, there is significance in the fact that in the border county ot Mosmouth, to which the Sunday closing act does not apply, there were 110 convictions for drunkenness on Sunday, against E68 on other days.

Tho TJae of His Jcefcoy "Was Needed Bo Ho "Was Tipped Off to ths Good Thing The Eookmakars Who VTen let Into tho Se cret Stosred Cloar of the Eloctod Horse. One of Them Is ITotou" for Crookod Books. Had Key West won tho fifth race at Alexander ilslhnd yesterday ono of tho big gest coups! of the year would have been pulled off. All of tho faithful wore to share in tho profits. The plans for the killing were deeply laid. A week ago it was known that tho big brother of the mighty Firenzi was in good shape, nhd steps wero taken to moke his first race a paying one. The horso is owned by The Hartford stable, or to be more acy curate, Miko Daly. This was ono point towards thebuccess of the coup, forwearers of the "all green jacket" are usualy very fortuuato at tho fctart This part of tho affair being looked aftor, the next thing to be considered was the Jockey. Murphy, the regular stablo pilot, being on the Euspcr.dcd llht Tor having failed to show the proper disposition to win on Wednesday, could not be put up. There was some talk of having him restored to favor for the occasion, but for appearanco sake it was finally decided to let the sus pension stand and look elsewhere for a rider. Washburn was the one selected. He works for "Hughey" ilcCarron, ono of the "high exalted members" or the fold, and if "Hughey" was allowed to get a part of the profits, it was aseurtd that the boy would do his best, as "Hughey" was informed of the contemplated killing. He Bfld 10 me leng talks with his friends, and the wires were kept busy carrying com missions to the out of town pool rooms. At the toack it was very hard to get any money on, for the majority of tho hookies kuew of the contemplated killing. The few outside the iold opened up at 3 to 1, but in a jlfiy even money was the best obtainable. Fredericks, who should have been favorito, was Quoted at 3 to 1, and the general teliet Was that his Jockey at least had been told what a good thing Key West was. Tho race was run, and when it was over tho "god thing" wjjs in secoad place, Woodchopper beating him by a neck. The plans of the "talent" Mad miscarried. They did not consider tbiwibner in their calculations, and the mfttakc had cost them thousands. Tho Wy on Frederirks had taken good pains t seo that he brought no disappointments, butmhe overlooked Woodchopper had wrought ''havoc. ADMINISTRATION STUNNED. Tho faces of the "administration" when the result was announced; wore a study. They are not accustomed to' Boeing their plans upsstj and they did not take defeat with good grace. They acted a if some one hsd wronged them. Qao of their famou "fixed" winners had peea beaten. The horse's form had bsqn slowu up and thoy had been tho ones to pay, for it. Games of this kind are of f re&uent occur re&ee atthu island, track, but thej seldomgo wrong. i "Races are run here the. night ,bcfpre," said a well.known bettor on the train to the city last evening, ad many can be found who will tgree with him.. Tho place is -a ditgrace to tho turf, and its gates should be clgcd and kept closed untd it can be run under different manage ment A readerof The Times asks the queatin, "How is it that so many books go on day after day when the racing is known to be so decidedly dishonest?" The answer is eslly round. The in-and-outrunnixg f the horses at the track makes public form a faree, and the public are compelled to pmctieally go it blind. This is, of course, a source of rich revenue to tho bookies, especially those who are kno wn to receive information from owners and Jockeys. The game is sure loss to the public, and this, of course, means the bookmakers get their money, that is the majority of them do. Thobe who try to make booic legiti mately lose. Those that follow the rules of the place, or rather the paths cut out by the administration books, win. One individual at tho track runs several books.' A fewyearsaeo hs was a poorman. Now he can count his wealth in hundpnisof thousands. The basis of this fortune was made in the early days of the Gloucester track. His reputtiou for taking in money on "dead" ones was famous, and one year there was some talk of ruling him off for "doing business" with a well ksown rider. SAFE FPvOM INTERFERENCE. At Alexander Island he is in Ids element. He flutters around from stand to stand in structing the man on the box to "savo this one" and to "kill that one." Ho knows that he ia safe from any official interference and makes very little attempt to hide his deal ings. His books have ac times been styled the "graveyards," one in particular leing known aa "the morgue." lie pays iiis help less than any man In the business and yet expects more of them. In dealing with owners and jockeys he is said to bo equally grinding. He will make prom iees and when it cemes time to settle refuse to keep his agreemeEt He knows he can do this safely and seems to revel in fiescing theso who have helped him to accumulate his ill-gotten wealth. He does not make baokB himself, his time being de voted to obtaining information of the kind he needs and makiug settlements when races are over. It is men of this class that arc the pillars of Presidsnt Jouos' domains. They pay large sums to the association daily for the privilege of plying thoir nefarious game, and are of course permitted to do as they please. Honest bookmakers find the place a hard one to make money at, but o those who will bribe and deal with tho lioseinen, tho track iB a harvest ground. r3 j The public arc robbed daiy3ut the spoils are not divided among all. t Tho administra tion books get the bulk of if jt When a killing is to be maijp the "faith ful" are warned in timea ?hoBe outside "tho baud" are made prey of. ).

Trinculo Again Hakos a Winning Seems to Eo Good at Any Distance and in All Kinds of Going. The inclemont weather frightened off the usually large crowd which Journeys across the bridge to the races at Alexander Island on Saturday afternoons, and only the regulars were present Just before the first race it cleared up and the sun shone brightly up to the last race, which was run in a blinding shower of ralu The talent did not seem to think much ot their chances of regaining their losses on Friday, and the betting was somewhat light. Seventeen books did business, and agaiu pcored a victory, only two favorites succeeding in reaching the wire first. The heavy rain had of course made tho track heavy, but it had a hard bottom and the going was consequently not as bad as expected. The track is a much betterone In every way than that at St. Asaph. The prettieat race of the day was the fifth, in which Woodchopper and Key West fought a heart-breaking rinish. The latter was t he favorito. gums to the postat even money, with Fredericks UAVinj; aeaond call at threes. Woodchopper was neglected except by a select contingent, and went begging at fives. To a good 6tart Woodchopper took the lead, and coming out of tho chute a length fcefore Key West, appeared to be winning easily. Ho was tiring rapidly, however, and when challenged by Key West lasted just long enough to win by a short head. Tho talont started in bravely, but re ceived a Etuncer to the very first race. Detroit Avasmadeahtfavorito,aud closed at 7 to C, with Pickaway next in demand at 5 to 1. To a gocd start Tiny Tim rushcd.out In tho lead aud th&y were cover able to" catch lilm. Duke of Fife was second all the way, and in a hard drive secured that place by a neck from Pickaway, who was a head In front of Detroit. Thenextovent lookedliko agood thingfor Beuvolio, ar.d they niado him an 8 to 5 favorite, with little Jim at thiees. Mask was touted to some extent, an was played down a couple of pointB,c!ojigat8 tol. When it came to racing Little Jim had had an easy time of it Ham rushed him out at tho fall of tho flag, and, drawing steadily away, won easily by a length, from Johnny, who as easily disposed of Ben voiiio. The heavy going caused P.eyuard to be made a favorite in the third race, at five furlongs, and he closed at 10 to 5, with Blue Bird at fours. The start was not of tho best, tho bad acting Elrsstone getting mnch the worst of it. Reynard waB the firvt to show and piloted his field to the head t the stretch, where Blue Bird forged to the front. From there on ho had no difficulty in keeping in tho lead, and won by half a length from Reynard, who was a letgth hero re Flu ellen. In the fourth event tho long-suffering talent scored th-ir first win. They made Pans a 3 to 1 favorite, with Canadian having second call at fours. Cadet led to the upper turn, where Paris got m front, and stayed thero to tho end, winning easily by two lengths lrom Tena cious, who was the same distance in front of Pirate Chief. Trinculo hss shown himself so supe rior to his field that he was sent to the post in the lafct rsee a prohibitive favarite at 1 to 4.

The home team won the full set ot three games with large margius in each. The visitors bowled strong, steady games, but wero evidently not ia their best form as some of their stronger bowlers failed to do the work their playing in previous contests showed thorn capable of doing, the difforonco in length ot alleys no doubt having something to do with their failure to do better.
