GREEN- SUtt'-OF- EGYPT,-
Curious Phenomenon to Be Seen Only
? . . In That Land. -
Perhaps It is the sun,1 and not the
moon, that Is made ot green cheese.
The appearance ot a green light at
sunset, like mány : other phenomena
supposed' to have only recently at
tracted . attention," was noticed ; and
commented upon by the ancient Egyp
tian, and more particularly BO because
in the clear air of Egypt the tints of
sunset are peculiarly distinct.
As the sun there descends nearer
and nearer the horizon, and is lm
mensély enlarged and flaming, it sud
denly becomes, for an Instant, a bril
liantly green color and Immediately a
series of green rays suffuses the sky
in many directions, well nigh to the
zenith. The same phenomenon ap
pears at sunrise, but to a smaller ex
tent. Sometimes, just as the last part
of the sun's disk vanishes, its color
changes from green to blue, and so
also after it had disappeared the sky
near the horizon often is green, while
toward the zenith It is blue.
This was alluded to in Egyptian
writings. Day was the emblem of life,
and night that of death, and the noc
turnal sun, being identified with
Osiris, thus rendered Osiris king of
the dead. The setting sun was green,
therefore Osiris, as the - nocturnal
deity, of the dead, was painted green.
The splendid coffins of the high priests
of Ammon frequently depict the, green
sun and the funeral deities are all col
There are innumerable instances in
the Egyptian relics of representations
relative to death being colored green.
The practice undoubtedly arose from
the green tints of sunrise and sunset.
The green sun disk Is referred to 5,000
years ago in Egypt. This is the earliest
known human record of an astronomi
Protection for French Wives.
In France no woman may work
more than ten hours a day, but a wom
an of Marseilles, the mother of seven
children and the assistant of her hus
band in his vineyard, complained to
the magistrate that her husband com
pelled her to work from 18 to 20
hours a day. The magistrate ruled
that the joint earnings or production
of husband and wife are, under law,
not wages, but something for the com
mon good of a family. Yet the state
does not contemplate that 'where a
wlte both rears a family and aids in
her husband's affairs she shall have
less protection both as to her income
and strength than an employe. As a
matter of reason she should have
more protection. Without having spe
cified support of the law for his ruling,
he held that the wife cannot be com
pelled to work more than ten hours a
day, and that she must have a full
Sunday of rest. The husband appealed
the case, but the decision of the Mar
seilles magistrate was sustained.
The Chameleon Goshawk.
I know no bird which passes through
so many changes of plumage and color
of eyes as the goshawk. A young one
which I have mounted is about the
size of a small hen and la covered
with white down; his eyes are palo
blue. I colored the eyes exactly from
life. When fully grown, the flrsi plum
age is dark brown above, and the
eyes are pale yellow. No one would
be likely to suspect this being a
goshawk who had seen only adult
birds. Later it changes to the dark
slaty blue of the adult, and the eye,
after passing through all the interme
diate changes in color from stray
yellow, orange yellow and pink, finally
assumes the deep rich red of the
adult. I know no other hawk (adds
Manly Hardy, writing in Forest and
Stream) so handsome as the gos
Every man shall receive his own
reward, according to his own labor.
Not according to his talents and op
portunities, but to the use made of
them; not to the harvest that is
reaped, but to the seed sown; not ac
cording to his gifts, not according to
the worldly applause he may have
won, but according to his labor. This
meets the case of every disciple, as
well the poorest as the richest, as
well the obscurist as the greatest, as
well the servant with one talent as
the servant with five. Only be faith
ful to your trust, and when the labor
of the day Is over, and you go up
to the great harvest home, you will
be "satisfied." L. Boardman.
A New Zealand City.

It has one large park ot 650 acres and

Bandy plains about four miles outside
the city, and, passing through aseptic

In black slouch hat, dingy white cot

who gathered 600 bushels of corn
from 20 acres of cultivated land last

When the immigrant officials at
pills Island learned that Charles Pa
Bernini, late of Italy and now an
aspirant for future citizenship in the
United States, was 90 years of age
they hesitated about admitting him
because of a possibility of his coming
pn the public for support. They be
gan to look for his visible asset, says
the Cleveland Plain Dealer. In the'
first place, he was strong and vigor
pus. In the second place, he carried
fi goodly sura of money concealed
about his person. In the third, he had
eight sons and four daughters, all
earning good Incomes In this country.
Also 35 grandchildren, a number of
whom are in business, supporting
themselves and their children. Also
pine great-grandchildren, who are

Better treatment Is in store for cat
tle in transit on the railroads. The
ong contest In congress last winter
ended, in spite of vigorous opposition
of the humane societies, in an exten
sion, from 28 hours to 36 hours, of the
time during which cattle may be kept
without food and water. But the hu
mane societies determined that the
new law should at least be enforced.
The old one had not. So vigorously
has the department of agriculture
pushed its work that convictions
against the railroads have been se
cured at the rate of 20 a day. Of 400
cases already sent to the department
of justice, only four have been lost,
and the maximum penalty of $500 has
been exacted In every case.

Battle with Ferocious Rati.
In a battle with rats, Abraham
Hunsberger, ot this place, killed 28
which had atacked him,' while as many
more escaped. When the fight began
he struck at one huge gray rat with
the hoe; the animal squealed, and in
an instant the loft was full of rats,
which attacked Hunsberger, grabbing
at his legs and tearing his trousers
with their sharp teeth, others jumping
on his back and snapping at him.
Hunsberger dropped the hoe, fright
ened, and endeavored to get out of the
loft through a trap door. The door
had "caught," and, finding he- could
not get It open, he again grabbed the
hoe, and, with part ot the handle as a
