PLANETARY DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
PLANETARY DISTANUES. The newest attempts to frame an intel ligible scheme of the genesis of the solar system rely on the old idea of a shrinking revolving nebula as a basis. A communica tion sent by Professor Lowell to Dr. A. C. D. Crommelin points out .how often the periods of two adjacent planets are related to one another by a simple ratio. Thus Mercury has a period two-fifths of that of Venus, and Jupiter a period of two-fifths of that of Saturn. The Earth has a period half that of Mars, Uranus a period half that of Neptune. Lowell suggests that therd is not only a coincidence but a law here, and that each planet has formed the next in order-by attracting matter to its orbit--and at the same time displacing it slightly sunward. He considers the effect of equal or commensurate motions of particules circling about tihe sun, and shows that there is a tendency for particles to swing about a common position. This would, he thinks, lead to the building up of a planet at this position....

It shows that the in crease in reverne for. the 1913-14 period over that of 1909 stands at £577.150. As an indication that the revenue for the whole year 1912-13 (£5,205,442) is likely to be exceeded, it may be mentioned :that in the .first..six months of 1913-14 £2,703,105, whlch is £100,684 greater than half of it, has flowed into the- departmental coffers.. The revenue from goods traffic, which fell' in 1912 owing to wheat being held back in' the country, has recovered almost to the 1911 standard, but -there is a decrease in the takings from miiscellaneous traffic of £1862, as compared with last year. - The following is the official, stateme...

LITERATURE BEHIND THE SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
BEHIND THE SCENES.* One volume of amusing anecdote and caustic comrmenit vas so well received by the pulblic that it has encouraged the author of "Jimmy Glover, His Bnoo," to present another on similar lines, under the title of "Jirmmy Glover and His Friends." It may be said a't once that there is no excuse for the production in a literary aspect. Nor is tliere any pretension ad vanced on this point. Mr. J. M. Glover has been the musical director at Drury Lane for many years, has written twenty succes sive scores for the pantomimes at 'this thea;tre, and an equal number for its dramas, and in this position has been a gre~tt deal behind the scenes. So he has been aible to accumulate a vast amount of material more or less interesting ands-amus ing concerning people witih nVhose names the puiblic have become familiar. When Mr. Glover becomes autoboiographical, es pecally concerning h'is society ambitions, he fails to be entertaining. The stories furnish the fascination of the volume, a...

WINNING CHRIST. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
r'w f lING CHRIST. "Yea, doubtless, I count all things but ]oss for the excellency of the knrowledge of Christ. Jesus my Lord ... that I may win Cbrist" (Phil. iii., 8). Even saintly Christ. ians seem but inper. 'fectly to grasp the 'plain teachings of. the 1New Tctament re specting the member ship in the body of 'Christ. Some assume that it is to be had on a basis of favorit ism, and trust that they will be of the elect. Others think the Apostle is using Ifigures of speech, and vaguely hope that ASTO. RUSSELLI they belong to tile right church, and will attain whatevcr others get, as in the suc cess of a. party in which all the victors share the spoils. Doubtless, the errors of the Dark Ages absorbed in childhood have been respon sible for these vagaries, and for our general neglect of proper Bible study. it seems hard for God's people to realise that the wisdom from above is the noblest science and the best instruction; and that it needs intelligent and systematic study as much as ...
