THK EAtfLK: WEDNESDAY , ATIML 1. 18fi,
15 OHci O.- DAY". How It Looks to t.,o I'cople of the Dif ferent I luaots. The people of Sept une are often in 'loubt as to whether or not the sun is shining. They tire so fur away from the great central orb that it is n mere speck in the sky which only men with good eyesight can see. l'lenty of plan ets that are swinging about in the heav ens look bigger than the sun to the peo ple of Neptune. Those on Uranus are little better off. Upon Mercury, on the other hand, the sun comes up like an immense new moon, and it burns with an intense glare, and is so hot that the people there ean cook their breakfast by the light of the morning sun. When the sun sets on Mercury it is like a large part of the heavens dropping out of sight, ond n cold breeze immediately springs up. Even on Venus the sun looks so big as to scare an inhabitant of the earth could he be transported to that planet. . From Mars it looks a good deal smaller than it docs from the earth, but a year on Mars is equal to two years on the earth. Another curious thing about Mars is that it has two moons, re volving in different directions. One of these little moons is hardly bigger in tho sky than a good-sized cheese, but it (lies through space with the speed of a cannon ball. This little moon goes skimming close to the surface of Mars, and the people there, with their long distance guns, could easily shoot up and hit it. They have to look sharp on Mars to see this little moon, which comes noise lessly from one direction nnd disnp pears around the corner in another, re gardless of tho movements of the reg ular moon. STRANGE, BUT TRUE. Wonderful Thing That Ilappen to Men Who Shoot. A well-known naturalist and sports man was shooting quail one dny near tho rynimids, Rays Tenrson's Weekly. Sighting an owl he raised his gun, and was nbont to pull the trigger when judge of his surprise., the bird suddenly twisted in ita flight as if shot, and calm il uttering to his feet. On examination he discovered that the bird, although in midair, had broken it wing through Hie mere exertion of its flight. When shooting on the moors In York shire an unlucky sportsman had his one solitary chance during the beat spoiled by an extraordinary accident. Just as he was shooting at a grouse flyin about mi yards away, another bird, which hud evidently lost its presence of mind, fluttered in front, of his gun, receiving the whole of t ho charge In itH body. It was literally blown to piece Itoot.h. tho well-known collector of llrighton, once did the very same thing lie wns firing at a small flock of com mon pochard when the charge hung lire, in consequence of which a rare specimen had lime to fly Into the line of shot. It is now in the llrighton mu seum.

As the. Luuciithire. man of sporting j tendency must have u wager on every ' thing that ut;,u i-s his attention, a In; of money changes hands on thisgaim . generally in a . in, .11 way, but quite fu iitlitly in substantial sums. Indeed, I says London ivimueis. there is u recog i nized chumpion player of "tip it," who ' is open to back himself for 25 to "lick creation." I And this is how it is ployed: The rival players take a button, or some small article, and sit on opposite sides of a table. The beginner puts his , hands under the table, nnd, taking Un button in one of them, raises his closed lints into view, n ml the business of tin ' other is tocay in v. h'.ch hand tliebtittoi. is held. The button changes sides as i. is found, and the game goes on until the 1 points are reached. Jt is often played with two or four a , side, and the champion will meet -. ! doen at a time, and discover the hand ! holding the button by a sort of instinc', 'I he position of llu- thumbs decidí'! whether the pnuie is "codilam" or "n j it."

Style Bet by the l'atrlarchii Sttll In Voguo In tho Kant, The Syrian Aral s have changed tbeii style of dress h-ss tliun any other i tionolity. At any rato there is i record of its having changed dm i tho period covered by human liistm cither as regañís male or female di- or adornment. Saving only for I. firearms, there is no reason to bel in that the liodouin of the desert docs i o clothe and adorn himself exactly as 1 did in the days of the 1'atriarchs. iim. the women wcirr their ornaments in the nineteenth century of the same shaK and in the same style as Surah and lie becca did. Among articles of vestí i n costume, the two oldest are probably the Highland kilt and the smock-frock of the west country English laborer. Jt Is not probable that either of them has altered much for 1,000 years. The smock-frock was the peasant dress ii: early Saxon times, and tho kilt would seem to be a developmental the kirtle or fringed girdle, which was probably the earliest garment worn by man. H.
