' Distance from Sua. "
To determine a single, position
of any one star involves a great
deal of computation, and if. we re
flect that, in order to attack the
problem in question in a satisfac
tory way, we should have observa
tions of a million of these bodies
made at intervals of at least a
fraction of a century, we see what
an enormous task the astrono
mers dealing with this nrnhl
have before them, and how imper-
rect must De any determination of
the distance of the stars based on
our motion through space, writes
Simon Newcomb, in ' Harper's
Magazine. So far as as estimate
ya.il ue maae, ir seems to agree
fairly well with the results' ob
tained by the other methods.
Speaking roughly, we have reason.
from the data so far available, to
believe that the stars of the Milkv
vv ay are situated at a distance be
tween 100,000,000 and 200,000,000
nines ine aistance from the sun
At instances less tnan this it
seems likely that the stars are dis
tributed through space with somr
approach to uniformity. We mar
state as a general conclusion, indi
ated by several methods of mak
mg tne estimate, that nearly all
A.l J . v
tne stars wnich we can see with
our telescopes are contained with
in a sphere not likely to be much
more than 200,000,000 times the
distance to the sun.
the inquiring reader may here
nsk another auestion. n
that all the stars we see are con
tained within the limit, may there
not be any number of stars with
"ut the limit which, a re invisihin

The annual JTruit; crop of - thej
United States has a value of 132,
000,000. The orchard fruits pro
duced each year have a value of
$84,000,000 ; small fruits, f25,000,-!
000; grapes, $14,000,000, and cit
rus fruits, grown principally in
California and Florida, $8549,000.
The seven great fruit-growing
states in the order of producing
are California, New York, Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois
and Indiana. :
Michigan has more peaeh trees
than aiiy other state. Chicago's
ceipts by water of Michigan
fruits last year were very heavy,
but this year they are still heav
ier., Ihe recemts for two srjeci-
fied days from St. Joseph, Mich.,
alone amounted to 300,000 pack
ages, principally of peaches. '
Peaches also come by rail from
nearly. every peach-producing
state of the west and south, and
the turnover of apples in South
Water street increases rom year
to year. Illinois leads all tne
western states in apples,' with an
annual product of 9,200,000 bush
els, Michigan coming " next with
8,951,000 bushels, and Indiana
third with 8,620,000 bushels. "
: The. apple crop of the country,
which in 1900 was 175,397,000
bushels, has increased with the ex
tension of orchards in the. west
Both in perishable and other
fruits, Chicago is the greatest
fruit market in the world.

The bulldog's tenacity of grip is
proverbial, but he also possesses
a . grip of quite another sort,
one which enables him to
stick .to his orders in spite
of the most untoward circumstan
ces. The Atlanta Constitution
?ives an exaniple of a dog's faith
fulness. Stub's" master had
gone away for the night and had
left the dog to 'guard his apart
ments.' In the evening the house caught
5re, and before the fire engine ar
rived the blaze had gained firm
hold and little could be saved.
Some of the men discovered the
iog and tried to coax or drive him
from the room, but Stub iield his
post. His would-be rescuers did
all they could to.tole him out, but
le would not budge. Warning
growls showed that he would use
his teeth if the men resorted to
force, and finally, in their efforts
to save the dog, the firemen turned
two streams of water on him.
Even this did not dislodge him.
The dog's master was found and
notified of the fire. When he
reached his home the roof had fall
?n in tnd the building was a mass
if flames. - He gave one clear
whistle, and Stub, who had defied
