rs terial mu i: V. , :: re fir-t .:xfronted
. with the ft d' ,.::;. :al :c' stionll as tO
whether it is lklk 1: tý' be cunmpused of
elements fI t t :.l ill. Tlhere was
n a tim- n dUuil, i v, n1 it might have
n been m, that il all lrobabilitv the
1n solar eleenwnti wtere -t fart different fromI
any bodies k-w,,;; to t0 rertrial chemists
Sthat the sholtr clouds munt ie cunstituted
n of something aitogther bycud our cog
nizaicte. But this t1w cannot be sus
taiied in the present'l ate' of science.
m Nothing it more remarkable in the re
Scent advance of knowledge than the
i (clear denion~itr:rti on of the fundanimenltal
unity between the elements present in
mn the celestial bodies and those elements
n of which the earth isconmpoused. It is no
at doubt true that we have found grounds
m for believing that there may be one or
two elements in the sun which we do not
m find here.
m We have indeed assigned to these
Sdimly discerned elements the hypothet
ical names cf coronium and heliumn.
But even if such bodies exist at all they
nm are certainly wanting in the essential
qualities that must be attributed to any
m element which purports to be the active
component of the photospheric clouds.
There cannot be a reasonable doubt that
the sun is mainly composed of elements
both well known and abundanlt on the
earth. It is clearly among these known
bodies that it is our duty to search for
Sthe characteristic photospheric material.
As the terrestrial clouds consist of
water they are derived not from a esim
ple element, but from a composite body
Sformed of the gases-oxygen and hydro
gen. The multitude of composite bodies
is, of course, innumerable, and the task
of searching for the solar constituents
would therefore seem to be an endless
one, unless we were in some way en
abled to restrict the field of inquiry.
This is just what the vast temperature
of the sun permits us to do. It is well
known that at a heat resembling that at
which the photosphere is maintained
chemical compounds cannot in general
1- exist. Ordinary chemical compounds ex
s posed to temperatures of such elevation
r- are instantly resolved into their elemen
tary components. It is thus manifest
Sthat in the endeavor to find the photo
) spheric material we have not to scan the
illimitable field of chemical compounds.
We have only to consider the several
ur elementary bodies themselves.
Y Thus at once the research is narrowed
e to a choice among some 64 different ma
terials, this being about the number of
the different elementary bodies. Most of
t. them have already been actually de
tected in the sun, and it is very likely
d that the others do really exist there also
in some part or other of the sun's mighty
volume.-Sir Robert Ball in Fortnight
e ly Review.
d As the Boy Saw It.
r. A Detroit business man was making
some purchases at a Woodward avenue
fruit stand the other evening when he
saw a street gamin take an orange and
ir coolly saunter off. There was no occa
sion to raise a row over it, but the gen
tleman felt it his duty to follow the boy
e "I saw you hook that orange, my boy.
n It isn't of much value, but if you begin
n this way where will you end?"
y "I never took it," he stoutly replied.
"Oh, but I was looking full at you."
it "I say I never took it."
"There it is in your pocket."
"That's a ball."
"Let me see."
tr "Oh, well," he sputtered as he
5, worked the orange out, "this is allus
y my luck. I never git hold of anything
on the sly but some great big duffer
comes along and wants his whack.
' Her's your half, and now it's only fair
for you to steal some peanuts and di
vide. "-Detroit Free Press.
A Numerous Court.
The court of the emperor of Russia,
says one of the St. Petersburg papers,
n consists of one chief chamberlain, five
- chief court masters, one chief gentle
mman of the table, one chief hunting mas
ter, one chief court marshal, one chief
carver, one chief stable master, 35 court
. masters, 17 stable masters, six hunting
e masters, one director of imperial the
aters, two chief masters of ceremonies,
eight assistant hunting masters, nine as
e sistant masters of ceremonies, 173 cham
0 berlains, 249 assistant chamberlains, 24
d court physicians, 23 court priests, 10
ladies in waiting, four ladies of the bed
chamber and 180 assistant ladies in wait
ing. It is well that the czar is one of the
e wealthiest men in the world, as the list
11 is rather a long one to support.

A Future For ilim.
"Things are pretty slow now," said
the czar to the minister of police.
"Yes, your majesty, I know of but
one matter which is likely to be brought
n to your attention. It is the case of a
- man who threw a bomb at your majesty
and broke a window a block away. He
wants to be released."

CHURCH ANDI) STATE.
REASONS WHY THERE SHOULD BE
A SEPARATION OF THE TWO.
Rev. Madison C. P'eters S'ys That All
Church Property Should le Taxed-The
State Has No Right to Tax One Man to
Propagate Anotlier's Religion.
The census of 1890 has reported the
alleged value of church edifices, the lots
on which they stand and their furnish
ings as $6`0,67;, 10li. This does not in
c111(1 the value of parsonages, lots,
monasterieS, convents, echCols, colleges,
orphanages. lands, etc., of which the
vari(Os churches hold probably $700.,
0(0i.('00 mnore. hGeneral Grant, in his
famuous- message to congress in 18753,
was probably not far from right when
he said, "In 1900, without a check, it
is safe to say this property will reach a
sum exceeding $8,04)0,000,000."
The census of 1890 shows that the
Catholic estimate of the value of their
church edifices alone is $118,342,086.
This does not include schools, convents,
real estate and mercantile property, so
called church property. A very careful
student of the Catholic church in this
country says she has now $250,000,000
worth of property.
There are other rich religious corpo
rations in this city deriving large rev
enues from property that ought to be
taxed. Instead of the nation paying
tribute to the church. the church ought,
like her founder, to pay tribute to the
nation. Tax all church property, and
we will find out whether all of the
churches are loyal or not. In order that
we may not be compelled to repeat here
the history of other nations, let us tax
church property and thus effectually
check ecclesiasticism. Without taxa
tion confiscation will be inevitable.
Let Americans take warning by the
fact that corporated religious wealth
became at one time so great in England
and in France, Italy, Spain and south
Germany that it crippled their re
sources, paralyzed industries and pro
duced ambitions which were only alle
viated by wholesale confiscation. Mex
ico and many of the South American re
publics had to seize the property of the
church. Four-fifths of the Protestant
clergy and the Protestant people are in
favor of the taxation of all church prop
erty, and the other fifth will be as soon
as it gets any information on the matter.
Benjamin Franklin said: "When a
religion is good, I will conceive that it
will support itself, and when it cannot
support itself and God does not take
care to support it, so its professors are
obliged to call for help from the civil
power, I apprehend of its being a bad
one." President Garfield said: "The
divorce between church and state ought
to be absolute. If you exempt property
of any church organization, you impose
a tax on the whole community."
Tax churches, and only those able to
pay taxes would dare to be extravagant.
With so much poverty and want in the
community our magnificent church
edifices and massive buildings for al
leged charitable purposes on our most
valuable sites are a burlesque on both
religion and charity. Tax churches,
and modest buildings will be erected
where they are most needed, instead of
building one great structure in a fash
ionable quarter. Exemption from taxa
tion is virtually state support, and that
is contrary to our constitution.
Churches are said to be public prop
erty, but in many churches the pew
rents are so high and the people so ex
clnsive that the public feel they are not
wanted. I know it is an unpopular
thing to say, but it is the truth, that
many of out churches are only social
clubs with a religious bias. Sobecause
the churches are not the property of the
public they should not be exempt from
You are religious, but you do not give
that as an excuse for not being taxed. I
would tax all charitable institutions
hospitals, orphanages and the like.
Their work is not wholly philanthrop
ic. They receive revenue. My mother
was left a widow, with three little or
phans to care for. Her little country
home was taxed. If any orphanage
should be exempt from taxation, such a
one as that was ought to be.
Tax all church prolperty, so we may
get a total separation of ('h:ulh and state
and no church may derive rupport by
the taxationof the peopli at large. The
state has no right to tax lne. mian for the
purpose of propagating au;Ibr manl'.

'ian is just like a planit--it is only in
the sunlight he can live. Cook or bake
yourself thoroughly in the sun every
day. Let your children bask in the sun
shine. If you let the sun shine into
your houses, the carpets may lose some
of their rich, deep color, but as this
color will pass into the cheeks and lips
of your children you need not mourn the
faded carpets. I would rather have pale
carpets than pale people. An Italian
