When the San Will Fall. The total of the sun's heat is equal to that which would be required to keep up 170,000 millions of millions of millions of horsepower, or about 7X. (X30 horsepower for every pquare yard, and yet the modern dynamical theory of heat shows that the sun's mass must fall in or contract thirty-fire meters per annum to keep up that tre mendous energy. At this rate of contraction the solar radius will be .01 per cent less in 2.000 years from now than It is today. Ac cording to these deductions, a time must come when the temperature must fall. This being the case, It Is incon ceivable that the sun will continue to emit heat tsu!!klent to sustain animal life for more than lfMMM),000 years longer. 1.nv-r Advertise.

The crops are raised on it, the houses and villages are built of it. the land is manured with it, the very air Is full of It. The crude brick buildings that dlssove in dust are Nile mud solidified, the red pottery of Arslout is Nile mud baked hard, the village mosques and minarets ore Nile mud whitewashed.

The Arabian coffee maker, having prepared his fire of charcoal and plaet J near it a huge pot containing water, takes a few handfuls of green coffee berries, carefully culls out all imperfert berries and foreign substances and then places the best of the berries In an iron ladle held over the tire. The ber ries aro permitted to roast until they begin to smoke and arc then, while still uncharred, placed in a small mortar and carefully brayed with a pestle closely fitting the cup of the mortar. The berries are not, however, reduced to a dust. While this process has been going on, a small pot has been half tilled with tepid water from the large pot and placed over the tire. 'When the water In the small pot has begun to boll, the broken coffee berries are thrown in, and the boiling is permitted to go on for a short time, the decoction iKilng Ktirred with a spoon when It shows signs of boiling over.

The fondly health s discussed u good deal by the parents In the presence of the youngsters, and the two evils held to be the very worst that can be feared are microbes nnd drafts. The other morning the boys got into a wrangle. "Oh, you're n microbe." hissed the elder in his anger. That dreadful epithet had never been applied to tho other before, and for a moment he v::is stnnned by the Insult lie tried to come back at his brother, but at first he was at a loss what say.
