i i i Ml Easter. We have always thought that one of the time honored humbujs was the manner in which Easter was fixed. Christ was supposed to have been crucified on Good Friday, and he arose from the tomb on Easter. These events occurred on certain days of the month: therefore, the anniversaries should always occur on the same days of the month. But they have been regulated by the full moon, and some years Christ was crucified and arose more than a month earlier or later than in other years. This year there is a peculiarity about it that is said never to have occurred before since the Christian Era. Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or next after the vernat equinox, the 21st of March. This year the full moan occurred on the Pacific coast before midnight, Satur day night, March 2H. In the rest of the world east of that, it did not oc cur until Sunday morning. Therefore, to be within the rule, last Sunday should have been Easter on the Pacific coast, ...

In the city where they sleep away the hours; But they lie, while o'er them range Winter blight and summer change. And a hundred happy whisperings of flowers. N'o. they neither wed nor plight. And the day Is like the night. For their vision is of other kind than ours. They do neither sing nor sigh In that burgh of by and by, Where the streets have grasses growing cool and long; But they rest within their bed. Leaving all their thoughts unsaid. Deeming silence better far than sob or song. Though the robin be a-wing. Though the leaves of autumn march a mil lion strong. There is only rest and peace In the City of Surcease From the failings and the waitings 'neath the sun. And the wings of the swift years Beat but gently o'er the biers. Waking music to the sleepers every one. There Is only peace and rest; But to them it seemeth best. For t...

Edison's claim thatthe "X" rays are a form of sound waves have led the inventor to make further ex periments to prove the theory. He has both seen and heard the sound waves, one of his visual proofs being as follows: A plate of steel one-eighth of an inch thick and "I feet square is set up in a frame so as to bring the cen ter on a line with the fluorescent bulb. When the light is turned on and the fluorescoiK! is held close to the center, no light can be seen, but when the fiuorescope is moved along the back of the plate, about an inch or two from the surface and out toward the edge, the rays of light or sound appear on the surface of the fiuorescope. The sound wave strikes the surface of the plate and diffuses itself over it. The waves radiate fromthe bulb in all directions. They strike the edge of the steel, turn right around the edge and run to a central point...
