MOUNT RANIER 14,619 FEET HIGH
Pljrar ITIiicti Go. on Government Rec
ords as Official.
tJeo. E. Hvde, in charge of tbe U. S.
geological survey, which has been in the
field in this county all summer,, has
.given out the correct altitude of Mt.
Ranier as determined by the survey by
means of triangulation. The figures are
14,519 feet above sea level. The base
line at Ellensbnrg was used, with sea
level guage at Tacoma, and these figures
will go on government records as offi
cial. Mr. Hyde says be has been . unable to
find any authority for the old figures,
14,444, and he thinks they were arbitrar
ily adopted to go Mt. Shasta four bet
ter, that 'mountain's elevation having
"been officially fixed at 14,440.
This la6t measurement makes Mt.
.Rainier the highest mountain in the
United States, and iu Mr. Hyde's judg
ment it is the most beautiful and aym--metrical
mountain in North America.
While Mt. Shasta is nearly as high, its
base is 5,000 feet above sea level, but
Mt. Rainier's feet are planted practi
cally at tide water, and his giant form
raises to the tremendous height literally
at one jump.

Dally Journey of tlte Sun -Puzzled the
Ancients Many Erroneous Theories. -
Strange as it may seem in .this day
and age, the rising and setting of the
sun, was the greatest of natural phe
nomena, to the ancient scholars- They
were greatly puzzled to know how the
same sun which plunged into the ocean
at a fabulous distance ia the west could
reappear the next morning at an equal
ly great distance in the east. And, as
Sir Robert Ball points outi a number of
remarkable theories were advanced,
and every one of them wrong. "The
old mythology asserted that after the
sun had dipxied in the western ocean
at sunset (the Iberians and other an
cient nations actually imagined that
they could' hear tlie hissing of the
waters "when the glowing globe was
plunged therein) he was seized by Vul
can and placed in a golden goblet. This
strange craft with its astonishing car
go navigated the1 ocean by a northerly
course, so as to reach the east again
in time for sunrise the following morn
ing. Among the more sober physicists
of old, as we are told by Aristotle, it
was believed ttiat iu some manner the
sun was conveyed by night across tlf
northern regions, and that darkness
was due to lofty mountains, which
screened off the sunbeams during the
voyage." Another theory was that t&e
sun actually pursued his course below
the solid earth during the darkness of
flight, and philosophers taught th
same alout the stars that rose and set.
These ure'bnt samples of many a theory
that might be tnamcd with regard 'to
the phenomenon of sunrise and sunset.
TEACHERS IN CAMBODIA.
A Spiritual X5ond Between Them and
All children who present themselves at
the veat for study are received. It is
not ever required that their parents
bring them or send them, says Popular
Science Monthly. The newcomer
chooses his professor, and, if accepted,
begins at once to study under hits direc
tion, installs himself in his cell or in
the school hall, and becomes his servant.
If the professor has already too many
iwpils, he refuses the new pu
pil and advises him to choose another
teacher; sometimes he guideu his choice,
directing him to a master who has few
or no pupils, or takes him to the su
perior who will select a teacher for U:m.
The choice of a professor is alw'tys a
grave affair, because it is held in fani
bodia, as iu all Buddhist and Brakmatic
countries, that professor and pupl ate
bound by strong ties of spiritual af
finity, and that- the pupil ought, to re
spect his master as he does his fa4 her
and mother. The law inflicts the .same
peiKilty upon an offense of the pnpil
against his master as an offense by a
son against his father and mother and
it prescribes that in certain cases the
pupil may be heir of his professor when
he hits cared for hint or supported hun
or served him when studying under his
direction; not only a family bond but
a religious bond, too, is establishe be
tween them, for the professor makes it
his business to teach his pupil the course
by which he' may earn more advanta
geous reincarnation and reach the Nir
vana, and becomes his spiritual guide.
HERE'S A COOL HOUSE.
A German Inventor, Conceives a Scheme
to Keep You Comfortable in Summer.
' The house of the water tubes is the
remarkable building freak of a tiermai!
inventor, who claims that he has solved
the problem of a constant temperature
that may be regulated at-will, and inci
dentally secured a structure that- com
bines the elements of strength, comfort
He first put up a skeleton of his
house, the frame for walls and floors
being of water tubing, connected with
a pumping and boiler system in the
basement. Around this skeleton, says:
the New Yorli Journal, he put up his
honse in the ordinary way. The tuies
were within the walls and. between the
floors and ceilings. In the summer
time this tubing is connected with the
regular water suDply,' and a steady
stream flown through the pipes in the
walls and under the floors, circulating
under pressure, absorbing tlie heat of
the walls and floors, as it flows. Dur
ing the long and severe winter the tub
ing is connected with the boiler, and
water heated to 100 degrees forced
through the circuit of pipes. The wa
ter at the outlet is found to have de
creased to 40 degrees, the remaining 60
degrees having ; been distributed
throughout, the 'house. The speed of
tlie circulation of water can be regu
lated so as to allow the fixing and main
tenance ' of a certain .temperature
throughout the building.
