Young English Mathematician Solved
What Was Long a Mystery of
the Sky.
According to in English writer,
many years ago astronomers were puz
zled by the weird Wandering Of the
two gigantic planets, Jupiter and or
nun. Sometimes tliey arrived at points
In the heavens long before they were
due; tit other times I bey were unac
countably lute. Their paths, too, were
strangely crooked.
No one could furnish an exp'aj'a
tlon. A voting English mathematician
named Adams set himself to tackle the
problem. If these worlds
out of their courses, be argued, some
thing must be pulling them astray.
After nearly two years of WW BP
figures be w as convinced of I he exist
ence of some still unknown planet,
whose mighty bulk was responsible for
the apparent confusion. Ho calculated
HOI only lis size and the P. It
must follow In the skies, but als. ti c
exact places It would occupy on certain
.future days.
As he had no telescope of Ills own
be sent Ids calCUlatlotU to the Astron
omer Boyal asking him to search the
part of the sky he had indicated. At
tirst the authorities were skeptical, nnd
would not make the search, but eventu
ally they decided that there might be
something In It.
The huge telescope was swung to
the proper quarter of the heavens, and
there, precisely In the spot Indicated,
was a dim point of light. Subsequent
Observation showed that it was mov
ing. In this way Neptune, most dis
tant of all the planets that swing
iiroun! the sun, wus discovered.
Its size, 1" times that of the earth,
was found to correspond almost exact
ly with Adams' predictions, nnd he
had calculated its year, which is al
most lli5 times as long as our twn.

Thursday was the day, and clothes
washing was Mrs. Andrew Ayer's oe
CUpatlon. Now Thursday was not Mrs.
Ayer's usual wash day. Monday was,
and on that very Monday the regular
laundry, which now lay neatly folded
In drawer or clothes-press, had been
washed and dried as per schedule In
that little home.
And yet this morning, a dark, foggy,
hopeless sort of morning it was, too,
found Mrs. Ayer splashing and rub
bing clothes over a wash board. A
checked house dress, a pale blue after
noon dress, a striped street dress and
one of Mr. Ayer's best shirts were be
ing treated to an Impromptu cleaning.
A picnic, perhaps, was coming the
Ayers' way when the sky cleared, or
an evelnng at the theater If the moon
broke up cloudland.
Oh, no! Mrs. Ayer's plans were as
gloomy as the morning. She was pre
paring to leave Andrew forever, and
to make; her way alone In the world.
She had arrived at this decision the
night before as she lay sleepless,
listening to the angry shuffling of
leaves as Andrew progressed with the
book he was pretending to read, and
to the tower clock nearby which thun
dered its strokes (forty-eight In all)
directly at her aching bead. Even the
clock seemed to have turned against
her, and was driving home the terri
ble words Andrew had hurled at her
that evening: "Go I If you don't like
my ways, go I I've lavished my love
on you and done everything I could
do, and you don't like my ways, and
you don't like my friends."
"Go! Go! Go!" thundered the
tower clock. And Mrs. Andrew lay
with a great big hurt on her heart
and pondered wayi and means for
living without Andrew.
Morning came early In the Ayer
household that Thursday, for neither
of Its members had had a night of
rest, but only horrible, black waking
Mr. Ayer descended to the kitchen
in semi-darkness, and. starting the
gas, prepared his light breakfast. Mrs.
Ayer followed, and found her hus
band seated sternly at the bare dining
table, eating toast and drinking strong
On happy mornings he was never so
hurried that he could not wait for
Mrs. Ayer's pretty touches to the table
and her fragrant, steaming breakfast
"Have an omelette this morning, An
drew?" asked Mrs. Ayer casually,
as she passed his chair on her way to
the kitchen.
"No, thanks," was the cold response.
"Don't let me make you any trouble.
I'm going at once."
"Good-by," crustily, a minute later.
"Good-by," floated pertly in from the
kitchen. Mrs. Ayer was busy cleaning
up the mess that her husband had
left on the kitchen table when he
made his toast.
She came and stood In the dining
room door. Mr. Ayer stood In the hall
way, hat in hand. They looked at
each other for a moment. It was too
dreadful, parting this way Mrs. Ayer
impulsively held out her arms. Her
husband crossed the little room In two
strides, and she put her arms around
his neck. They kissed each other,
though not so warmly as usual, and
the door banged after Mr. Ayer.
To Mrs. Ayer it was their last part
ing. She turned nnd looked out of the
window hopelessly. The yellow cat
was sitting Just outside waiting for
Its breakfast. She had always dis
liked the thing, but now it assumed
the proportions of a dear pet.
The tiny backyard garden w hich An
drew had helped her to make Into
vegetable and flower plots never be
fore seemed so alluring. How beau
tiful that ugly board wall would ap
pear when covered with sw eet-pea and
morning-glory vines, the seeds for
which she had tucked Into the little
trenches Andrew had prepared for
them. How delicious the fresh let
tuce and radish would taste Just a
few weeks later! How Andrew would
exclaim with delight when he came
home and found them gurnlshlng the
dinner table!
These were yesterday's thoughts.
Now her world hud turned upside
down. She had fallen hopelessly
among her broken plans, and t'.ie only
way out of the mass of troubles had
a gloomy, forbidding appearance.
She turned resolutely from the win
dow and, opening the kitchen door,
gave the yellow cat bis breakfast.
The fog had raised slightly by the
time her dresses were ready for dry
ing and she bung them on the clothes
line outdoors. Then she took the
morning paper, which came from a
nearby city, and Hudled the adver
tisements asking for domestic help.
At last she found ne that seemed to
I meet her needs. It stated that the
family was small, the wages large an I
no references required.
Of course Mrs. Ayer did not intend
to be a domestic Indefinitely. But In
this way she might earn some money
till her once beloved studio work
could again be located. She shuddered
at the thought of being alone In I
strange city without money or work
She shuddered still more at the
thought of muklng her escape from
Andrew and home.
The telephone bell called impa
tiently. "Yes," she replied forlornly,
"liello. Flo I I've a rush order of
stock to get out and won't be home
for lunch."
"When will you be here?"
"Not till six o'clock."
"All right, we'll have dinner when
you come."
After all, she could stnrt away to
morrow easier than today. Perhaps
the more she thought over her new
plans the more natural they would be
come. Anyway, her dresses were not
drying quickly enough to be ironed
und packed In time for the ufternoon
The afternoon was spent In sorting
out clothing nnd preparing a ward
robe for the strange new work. Then
she mnde the rooms neat and went out
to find something especially appetiz
ing for the last dinner she was to pre
pare for Andrew.
The mist had scattered and a bright
strip of blue sky fringed with golden
shone beautifully above the chimney
tops. It looked like a good omen in a
weary world. Mrs. Ayer stopped at
the florists and bought a pot of
mauve tulips.
The greeting between Mr. nnd Mrs.
Ayer that evening was Just a trifle
warmer thnn the morning's farewell.
The dinner wns eaten In almost con
tinual silence, but It certainly was a
good dinner, and seemed at last to
warm Mr. Ayer's thoughts into speech.
"What would you like to do this
evening? Take a walk, eh? The
weather is clear again."
"Oh, yes, do let's walk somewhere
so we can see the sky and river."
They strolled out on the busy street
nnd turned across the Common. The
fields were clothed In pale green, and
in the western sky were golden clouds
which marked the close of a dark day,
No one was In sight. Mr. and Mrs.
Ayer looked at each other with much
"How beautiful the world is," mur
mured Mrs. Ayer.
"Great! What .1 lot we were miss
ing by staying In. He found her little
hnnd within her- enpe-eontee nnd
nestled It hnnly In his own. "Isn t
this better than quarreling?" he sug
gested, after a long pause.
"Oh, see the river!" exclaimed Sirs.
Ayer as they ascended a slope of the
field. "Magnificent !"
"It's like love, our real love, strong
and bright and tranquil," Mr. Ayer remarked.
' And quarrels are like the froth In
a storm, forgotten next day," said his
wife decisively.
And there in the twilight their
kisses were warm and tender again.

Habits and Customs of Dwellers on
the East Coast of Scotland Are
The fisher folk of the east coast of
Scotland have habits und customs dif
ferent from those of any other section
of the working classes.
Except in selling their llsh or pur
chasing the actual necessities, or oc
casionally borrowing from the bunk
when ussistunce Is required In the buy
ing of un old or the building of a new
boat, they have next to no traffic with
the outside world.
It is seldom that u fisherman marries
other than a fisher lass, and even
should she allow her affections to w an
der, the line is (irmly drawn at a
cooper or other fish-worker with the
"codling bleed," which means that he
belongs to a fisher family.
There is a distrust of the "frenit"
as outsiders tire termed almost
amounting to a racial distinction, and
this is emphasised In the Implicit con
fidence one fisherman will place In an
other, although they may be utter
strangers to each other.
It is b ife to say that the majority of
the Scott Ish fisher folk are teetotalers.
An odd Kaherman may be met in most
of the vl lages who is teetotal until
asked to. b.ive something. Then It Is:
"Well, I'm n teetotaler In a kind o' a
way. Nae bigoted, ye ken ; I never
took ony pledge. A mun's aye best
tbut cun templar hlmsel' I Oh, I'll drink
yer health no' that I care a preen
p'nt for 't. Na, thiuik ye, I never
tak' water."
And bulf a gill of mountain dew that
could peel the bark oft a granite monu
ment vanishes.
The fisherman Is emplintlcully of a re
ligious turn. As u preacher he Is a
marvel. With fewer opportunities than
most men for the cultivation of cor
rect sjieaklng, he cun go out Into the
square at Stornowuy or Fraserburgh,
where thousands of Ids fellow have
gathered for the summer herrlng-llsh-lng,
and discourse on u text for twenty
minutes or so with an eloquence and
grip of his subject which might be
envied by many members of the cloth,
says a writer in Mac Mutters.
The fisherman bus his share of weak
nesses, and not the leust of these ure
the superstitions, long discarded by
others, und some pi cullurly Ins own, to
which he still clings.

General Pershing has accepted the
Invitation of the Boy Scouts of Amer
ica asking for the army's co-operation,
and has slated formally: "After care
fully reviewing the activities of the
Boy Scouts of America, their program,
objectives, leadership and actual ac
complishments, I do not hesitate to
say that I should be very glad to see
members of the army everywhere tuko
such active part In scouting us olll
clal duties and local conditions per
mit. "Having kept In close touch with
the work of the boy scouts, I thorough
ly approve of It as a soldier for the
good it does to those who may bo
called upon to serve as our future de
fenders, and finally, as an American
citizen. I approve of it for the train
lng It gives In preparing the boy to be
a worthy citizen of his country."
The army men who become scout
masters will act In the same capacity
as civil scoutmasters. No military
tactics will be taught, and there will
be no attempt made by the soldiers to
militarise the movement.
The above-mentioned invitation to
General Pershing proceeded from the
following resolution, unanimously
passed at tho March meeting of the
national council :
"Whereas, The Boy Scouts of Amer
ica is Donmilltary in spirit and in
program ; nnd
"Whereas, For this reason officers
nnd former officer! of the military es
tablishment have In spite of their
genuine desire to do so, expressed a
hesitancy to serve as scout leaders for
feur that Ittch connection might cre
ate n public misapprehension. Be it
"Resolved, That we reaffirm at uds
time our policy that the scout pro
gram is and shall continue nonmlli
tary, although encouraging at all times
the virtues of courage, loyalty, obedi
ence and endurance; qualities that
are no less desirable In civic than In
military life ; and it Is further
"Resolved, Tbut we express sincere
spprectatton for the splendid co-operation
which has been given us by offl
cers of tho army and navy nnd by
members nnd posts of the American
Legion nnd others In military and
naval service and express hope that
we shall continue to enjoy their co-operation
In the future to an even great
er degree."
When fire broke out in the infirmary
of the state sanitarium at Undercllff,
Conn., a few weeks ago the Institution's
scout troop blltsed instantly and
rendered valuable assistance In help

per Commenting on the Incident says:
"The fire drills which have been fre

ployees of the institution, assisted by
the scout troop, to bundle the situation
