The destruction of Port Royal was con summated SH years Rtfo, January 10, BIO, The famous Cistercian abbey won founded In 12IH by Matilda, ulfo of Mont-morence-Marll. Kail- Ins Into decay. It use retounded In 1(MS by Jacqueline Mnrlc Arnauld, ana In 1G3 It became the storm center of a battle that kept all Franca a-shaklng for half n century. The tempest began with Bishop Janscn's book on "Grace and Free Will." In which ho took the ground (In the name of the great Augusttnt) that It was the grace of Qod, rather than the human will, that counted In the work of salvation. Tho Jesuits, who held the whip hand In the church at the time, declared war on "Jansenism," and the big men of Port Royal, led by Arnauld and Nicole, stood forth as Janscn'a champions. The fray soon became universal. Every learned society In France became In volved. Doctors, universities, the var ious faculties and even the mighty Sor bonne joined In the battle. It was war to tho knife, and knife to the hilt, Above every fortress flew the black flag. Augustine and Pcloglus rose from their graves, as It were, and joined the con tending hosts. From the opposing clouds, black with wrath, the hot lightnings flew back and forth In a way that was fearful to behold. U whs the '"Gentlemen of Port Royal" against the field, and, of course the gen tlemen of Port Royal were finally beaten. Nicole and Arnauld, were. In ono way and another, silenced, and It wan settled for all time, so tho victors thought, that "Grace" was to play second fiddle to "Works." The Jesuits were triumphant; Augustine was sent to the -nr. and the old arch-heretic, Pclaglus, vpr placed nt the head of the procession. But the greater thin about the Port Royal fleht was a little book by Blaise Pascal, which 'Is known to Immortality as the "Provincial letters." rascal wns one of the greatest men that has over llvod. and the "Provincial Letters" will always stand as one of the world's most remarkable books. Never did book so completely accomplish the purpose for which It was written. Pascal, without feeling any particular Interest In. the famous "Five Propositions" had some thing to say to the Jesuits, and he said It In a way that will charm tho world to the end of time.

S., who BUggcsts that sun-spots aro formed by frag ments struck from Saturn's Rings by tho swarnt of meteors "known as the Leonids, which fragments fall into the sun and cause disturbances In its sur face by their impact. Mr. Bolton Bonds tho fol lowing note: "A theory has been formulated by Prof. H. H. Turner to tho effect that a portion of tho great meteoric swarm known as the Leonids his become detached from the main shower, owing to gravitational action of Saturn on some favorably occasion. This subsidiary swarm travels in an orbit which brings it periodically into violent col lision wjth Saturn. At such recurrent events the particles collide with the particles 'constituting Saturn'B Rings (which aro in themselves nothing jnoro than a great meteoric swarm). In ono part of tho Rings the fragments move with equal and opposite velocities, and collisions 'would impart rest in both opponents, and henceforth they must Inevitably fall into the sun. These fragments fromt Saturn's Rings appear to plungo headlong into the Bolar furnace at tho rate of 400 miles a second, giving rise to tho woll-known phenomena ,of sun-spots. Chinese and other records during the last 2,000 years substantiate this theory, that, following a collision between Saturn and the meteoric swarm, there Is manifested an epoch ot large and numerous sun-spots. Prof. Turner adds that, although tho hypothesis Is supported by past and present records, to consider it as finally estab lished would be premature."

National Committee, for Mental Hygiene. (Exclusive Service ' The Survey Press Bureau.) A bill was passod, practically unno ticed, In tho closing days of tho last ses sion of the New1 York legislature which marked as Important a step In tho care of the Insane as has been takon In a generation. This bill, which Is now a law and In effect, permits each state hos. pltal for tho Insane to establish an out patient department. This opens a way for efficient treat ment. In tho earliest stages, of porsons 111 with mental diseases, and nt tho samo time makes It possible to discharge con valescing patients who previously had to be kept from tho friends and families bo- cause It was Impossible to provide sklllod observation and advlco after they had left the hospitals. The records of 6,000 patients admitted for the first time to Nov York state hos pitals for the Insane In 1911 show that In nearly a third of all cases tho mental diseases had existed at least a year be fore admission. Thus the stato spends, more or less willingly, sovcral million dollars a year for the enro and treatment of Insane patients whose chances of re covery have been already very seriously Impaired, while It Ignores entirely provls Ion for their treatment. Tho treatment of mental diseases In out patient departments Is not nn untried ex periment. There aro already thrco such clinics In New York and a very few widely scattered In other states. To these clinics come cases rarely seen by physicians In Institutions for the in sane a child brought by a mother whose quick Intuition has told her that ho Is "different" from the others; a man who has found his nccustomed work grown suddenly difficult and Is conscious of loss of memory and rapidly rising Ir ritability: a depressed old lady who realize that some small misfortunes cannot bo wholly responsible for the new anxiety which Is dominating her life; a right.

It would be unfortunate, Uowever, to glvo tho Impression that early diagnosis and early treatment Insure recovery In nil cases of mental diseases or even In the greater proportion of them. There aro several .large groups of men tal diseases In which early diagnosis and treatment are quite powerless to Influ ence In any way an Inevitably unfavor able outcome Tho most Important Is general paresis, a mental disease re sponsible for about one-sixth of all ad missions to hospitals for tho Insane from American cities. Four hundred nnd ninety-nine persons died from typhoid fever In Greater New Tork In 1012, hut more than DM cases of general paresis, nil certain to die ot their disease, wcro admitted to tho stato hos pitals from the same population in tho same period. The history of the early stnges ot general paresis Is often a pitiful story ot family estrangement, business entanglement or personal dlsgrACe, and yet tho diagnosis of this dlscaso can usually bo made by the trained psychiatrist-at n, very early period nnd It Is aided by a very accurate laboratory test. I Know of tho cashier of a bank, whose business life had been Irreproachable, who became careless and untidy In his dress and wasted tho funds In his cus tody In tho most foolish wayB, He was convicted of embczzlemont and died In dlsgrnco a short time afterward. For tunately his family, recognizing that his conduct could bn accounted for only by mental disease, had the courngo and good senso to demand necropsy and necropsy showed conclusively that ho died of gen eral pareBls. iSvcn although such cases may be Incurable, tliolnr existence should bearecognlzed In order that serious social troubles may be averted, lSstabllshment of out-patient depart ments by the state will benefit not only early cases, but those convalescing In state hospitals who eagerly await their discharge and return to .their families.

Marvels of Light and Color By EDOAH LUCIEN LAUKIN Question Please explain the cause of the ghastly color of people's faces when near the long bright tubes of glass In photographic galleries. Answer The long, shining tubes are mercury vapor aro lumps. Bed waves of light are almost totally missing. Tha other colors are present, but It requires the waves of energy causing color sensa tions in the optlo thalamus In the brain to be present In all visible lengths com bined to mako pure white light. These are violet, Indigo, blue, green, yollow, orange and red. Take out any one of these, let tho others fall on any object capablo of reflecting them, then the ap poaranco will bo strange, unnatural and weird, some say ghastly, and the human face does Indeed look uncanny. An Immense number ot photographic ex periments have been mado with every kind of light, visible and Invisible, with startling results. Bays of all colors have been allowed to fall on surfaces ot all other colors, a strange' now thing In optics. The resulting care and beautiful effects have been viewed with the un aided eye, with the spectroscope and then photographed. By means of this series ot Intricate pro cesses hitherto unknown short radiant energy waves have been discovered, far and uwny shorter, moro delicate and rapid than the shortest visible violet waves. The absorption of Invisible and there foro undiscovered undulations Is a branch of research by Itself and strange chemical activities have been thus detected In ultra-violet regions; force going to waste so far as man Is concerned during all these centuries These newly discovered short waves are themselves most admirable discover cm. A series of very remarkable sub stances has been mado by advanced ex perlmentera wave filters. By their use now and extraordinary effects are ob tained. Any length of waves can be sifted or filtered out, and any series whatever can be isolated and secured in a state of purity. A wide field Is now being explored. Thus a pane of clear glass acts like a wooden board to these tiny waves: It Is opaque to them. But these beating waves havo effect on the surface ot the humun body, Weird effects aro obtained by photos taken In filtered light; (hus a garden full of flowers will vary In the negatives; some flowers will bo Invisible that show VMecl entirely new have been discov ered, and the fascination of It all Is now j plainly In other kinds ot waves.
