Three Dollars a year -twenty-live ueflta a single rUfIber, THE BOOK LOVERS MAGAZINE, 1828 WalBUt Bt., Philadelphia. If there be craters on themoon that are anything but extinct, they must expel something. Judged by the discharges of our earthly volcanoes, that some thing must be water and car bonic acid gas. Water cannot possibh exist as a liquid; for the temperature of the moon's surface duriug the long lunar night is probably not far from 4b(J deinees below the zero mark of a Fahrenheit thermom eter. Ice and snow are the forms, then, which lunar water must assume. Is there any ev idence of it? Hundreds of "craterlets" are lined with a sil very coating that gleams daz zlingly when the sun shines full upon them. Capping the loftier peaks the same silver glow may be seen. On the slopes of the greater mountain chains, on the ramparts of huge craters the silvery sheen casts its ba!o, fading away strangely as the sun rises higher and higher and reappearing at sunset just be fore the long, cold lunar night sets ic. Prom many ; of the craters, notably from Tycho. long white rays spread out for hundreds ot miles enigmasuin the old moon of a generation ago, but in the new moon of to day deep crevices illuminated only when the sun is high in the M 1 1 TVT , a uie lunar neavens. wnat is this silvery substance that caps the Apennines of the moon, gleams on the slopes, and radi ates from the craters? Accord ing to the new school it is sim ply ice and snow, collecting at the poles, on summits, and in the verygplaces where it ought to collect. Morever, it partly explains the curious changes that occurjat different times ot the lunar day in the size of the crater Linne, the "very small, round, brilliant spot,' previous ly mentioned; it explains the il lumination of deep, snow-bottomed pita andoabysses that are inky black at sunrise and sun set, and brilliantly white when sua shines directly into.them and it explains the fading away and reappearance of white stains Rt different periods in the lunar day The melting and falling ot snow, the disappear ance and reappearance of hoar frost, alone can account for these changes. In old descrip tions they are aid to be due to variations in illumination; In the philosophy of the new moon they are attributed with beauti ful simplicity to the alternate evaporation and freezing ot water expelled from craters in eruption. WaldemartJ Kaemp ffertmthe December Booklov ers Influence We are all well doers or ev l doers. Every man is a mission ary, now and forever, for good or evil, whether he intends it or not. He may be a blot, radiat ing his dark influence out rvard to the very circumference of so ciety; or he may be a blessing, spreading benedictions over the length and breadth of the world but a blank he can not be. The seed sown in life springs up in j harvests of blessings or sorrow. Whether our Influence be great I or small, '.whether it be for good j or evil, it lasts, it lives some- j where within some limit, and is 1 operative wherever it is. The grave buries the dead dust, but 1 the character walks the world and distributes its influence for j the advancement or retrogres- sion of the families of mankind. The sun sets behind the dis tant hills, but the trait of light it leaves behind guides the pi 1 grim to his distant home. The triend with whom we took sweet counsel is removed visibly from the outward eye, but the les sons be taught, the grand sen timents he uttered, the holy deeds of generosity by which he was characterized, the mor al lineaments and likeness of the man still survive and ap pear in the silence of eventide, on the tablets of memory, and in the light of mom, noon and dewey eve. Although dead, he yet speaks eloquently and is in the midst of us It is only the pure fountain that brings forth pure water The good tree only produces good fruit. If the center from which all proceeds is pure and holy, the radi of influence from it will be pure and holy also. Go forth, then, in the spheres you occupy, the employments, the trades, the professions of social life go forth into the high places and low places of the land mix with the soaring cataracts of social convulsions or mingle among the eddies of streamlets of quiet and domes tic life. Wherever sphere you fill do your duty faithfully and to the best of your abihtv. The reward may tarry long on the road, but it will eventually ar rive, ladened with the results you have for years striven to attain. Selected.
