Jt serins to b worth whila 4o rollirt
together what may be said tho su)
Ject of tha duration of life ua tha rIuIni.
It in noteworthy fact that tha tcmtA

bnmun rare doprnds fumhunnntnlly
opon the qncation of heat If iioat, or
what in equivalent to hrut. Am nut
last, then man cannot Inst, either. There
la no shirking this plain truism.
Of course it in obvious that the avail
able heat generally cornea from the ran.
80 far ns the coal goo, we hnve already
observed that on it I limited to quantity
It can afford no perennial mpply.
Doubtless there I in the earth some
quantity of other material cnpablo of
oxidation or of undergoing other chemi
cal change, in the course of which and
M an incident of such change heat in
evolved. The amount of heat that can
possibly anno from mich source In
Itrictly limited. There is in the entire
earth just a certain number of unit of
heat possible from uch combination),
but after the combination ha Wen ef
fected there cannot be any more heat
from thin Rourco.
Then a to the Internal heat of the
earth due to the liicandesfrtit Mute of
its interior. Here there i no doubt a
large store of energy, but still it i of
limited quantity, and it is also on the
wane. Thin heat is occasionally copious
ly litierated by volcanoes, but ordinarily
the traiiBit of" heat from the interior to
the surface and its discharge from
thence by radiation Is a slow process.
It Is, however, sufllcinnt for onr present
purpose to observe that slow though the
esoajMi may be, it is incessantly going
on. There is only a definite numlier of
nnits of heat contained in the interior of
the earth at this moment, and as they
are gradually diminishing, and us there
is no source from whence the loss can
be replenished, there is here no supply
of warmth that can be relied on jeriim
nently. It goes without saying that the wel
fare of the human race is necessarily
connected with the continuance of the
tun's beneficent action. If the sun ever
ceases to shine, then must it be certain
that there is a term beyond which hu
man existence, or indeed organic ex
istence of any type whatever, cannot
any longer endure on earth.
But we have grounds for knowing ns
a certainty that the sun cannot escape
from the destiny that sooner or later
overtakes the spendthrift. In his Inter
esting studies of this subject Professor
Langloy gives a striking illustration of
the rate at which the solur beat is lieing
squandered at this moment. Ho remarks
that the great coal fields of Pennsylvania
contain enough of the procious mineral
to supply the wants of the United States
for 1,000 years. If all that tremendous
accumulation of fuel were to be extract
ad and burned in one vast conflagration
the total quantity of heat that would be
produced would no doubt be stupendous,
and yet, says this authority who has
taught ns so much about tho sun, all the
heat developed by that torriiic coal lire
would not be equal to that which the
sun pours forth in the thousandth part
of each single second.
When we reflect thnt this expenditure
of heat has been going on not alono for
the centuries during which the earth
has been tho abode of man, but also for
those periods which wo cannot estimate
except by saying that they are doubtless
millions of years during which there
bos been life on the globe, then indeed
we begin to comprehend how vast must
have been the capital of heat with which
the sun started on its career.
And yet we feel certain that the inces
sant radiation from the sun must be
producing a profound effect on its stores
of energy. The only way of reconciling
this with the total absence of evidence
of the expected changes la to be found
In the supposition that such is the
mighty mass of the sun, such the pro
digious supply of heat, or what la equiv
alent to heat that it contains, that the
grand transformation through which it
U passing proceeds at a rate so alow that
during the agea accessible to our o beer
rations the results achieved have been
Imperceptible. But the energy of the
system U as rarely declining as the en
ergy of the clock declines as the weight
It aeema that the aun has already dis
sipated about four-fifths of the energy
with which it may have originally been
endowed. At all events, it seems that,
radiating energy at its present rate, the
run may hold out for 4,000,000 years, or
for 5,000,000 years, but not for 10,000,
- OOO years. Here, then, we discern in
the remote future a limit to the dura
tion of life on this globe. We have seen
that it doea not seem possible for any
other source of heat to be available for
replenishing the waning stores of the
luminary. It may be that the heat was
originally imparted to the ran as the
result of some great collision between
two bodies which were both dark before
the collision took place, so that, in fact,
the two dark masses coalesced into a
rast nebula from which the whole of
ear system has been evolved. Of course
it is always conceivable that the ran
may be reinvigorated by a repetition of
similar startling process.
It is, however, hardly necessary to
observe that so terrific a convulsion
would be fatal to life in the solar sys
tem. Neither from the heavens above
nor from the earth beneath doea it seem
. possible to discover any rescue for the
human race from the inevitable end.
The roue is as mortal as the individual,
and, so fur aa we know, its span cannot
under any circumstances be run out
beyond a number of millions of years
, which can certainly be told on the fin
gers of both hands, and probably on the
. angora of one. Robert B, Boll in, Fort

the wedding of one of her dear friends,

She walks alono, just ahead of tho bride,
in entering the church, or wherever the
ceremony is to bo performed. Her dross
must lie n littlo more elaborate than that
of tho bridesmaids, but not of course ua

reached sho tands just beside the bride,
holding her bouquet. At tho moment
when the ring is to bo assumed she hands
the bouquet to tho first bridesmaid, uud
assists tho bride iu taking off hor glove.
All this time the bride has boon standing
with her veil over her fuco, but jnnt
after tike service is over, when the bride
rises up after having boon blessed, tho
maid of honor throwa back the filmy
cloud and the bride stauds facing the
bridegroom and ready for his kiss. The
bouquet is then handed back to the maid
of honor, by her given to the bride, and
aa the procession retreats she walks just
behind the bride and groom, leaning on

when a few years afterward he removed
to Nashville, nothing could prevent him
from spelling the name "Knashville."
After a few years' residence there the
judge moved again, this time to Mur

his first letter from this place. He
scratched his head in perplexity a mo
