purpose has received the support of

post of honor, and in addition there
to have established its relative rank
as an exposition topic by assigning
to education for tho first time in the
history of international expositions,
a separate and adequate building.
This association desires to express
its appreciation of the liberal and
scientific policy thus outlined by the
exposition authorities, and to pledge
to the full extent of Its powers and

Gravitation as a Cause for Volcanic
In relation to the action of the sun
and moon on Intensifying volcanic
disturbances, it seems quite possible
that a volcano on tho point of orup
tion would be more liable to burst
forth with the combined action or
gravitational pull of tho sun and moon
acting in conjuction on a part of tho
earth that stood square before the
sun. The action, If any, must be due
to tho gravitational pull or tidal ef
feet on the liquid interior of the earth.
Tho electrical disturbances being of
a secondary nature, no doubt caused
by the heat from tho volcano, tho
planetary influence or their positions
are insignificant as compared with tho
attraction of tho sun and moon. With
the possible exception of the planet
Venus its gravitational pull, although

On referring to the almanac we
