Gravitation Is one of nature's enig
mas. The great Newton himself d.d
not pretend to know what gravitation
Is. He only knew that It existed, nud
he wn» able to prove how it noted, but
wbnt It was In and of Itself he never
knew. Gravitation Is a law of na
ture or a foroe noting in accordance
with a law of nature, and that is nil
that the wisest man Is able to say
about It—unless he Is prepared to talk
nonsense. It Is like electricity. We
know perfectly well wlmt electricity
does, but what electricity Itself Is
baffles the profoundest of scientists and
, philosophers.—New York American.
