In the year 1630 occurred the
first duel known to have taken place
on American soil. The principals,
Edward Doty and Edward Leister,
were servants of a Mr. Hopkins,
one of the New England colonists.
The men had quarreled over some
trifling matter and resorted to the
field for its settlement. The affair
was stopped bv the authorities, but
not before one had been wounded
in the thigh and the other in the
hand There was no law covering
such matters, but the governor of
the province decided that the men
should be punished nevertheless.
At his orders they were sent to
have their heads and feet tied to
gether and lie in that condition
twenty-four hours without food or
drink. vThey suffered so much,
however, that they were released
at the end of an hour.
Th* Story of Zero.
The word “ zero” is from the
Spanish and means “ empty,” hence
nothing. It was first used for a
thermometer in 1795 by a Prussian
named Fahrenheit. By experiment
ing with snow and salt Fahrenheit
found that he could produce a de
gree of cold equal to that of the
coldest winter day. It happened
that the day on which he made hia
final experiment was the coldest
anybody could remember, and,
struck with the coincidence of hia
scientific discovery, he hastily con
cluded that he had found the low
est degree of temperature, either
natural or artificial. He called the
degree “ zero” and constructed a
thermometer graduating up from
zero to boiling point, which he num
bered 212 and the freezing point 82.

The Sorbonne was originally a
society of ecclesiastics at Paris,
founded by Robert de Sorbonne in
1252. The members lived in com
mon and devoted themselves to
study and gratuitous teaching. They
soon attained a European reputa
tion as a faculty of theology, their
judgment frequently being appeal
ed to from the fourteenth to the
seventeenth centuries. The influ
ence of the Sorbonne was declining
when the society was broken up in
1789. The buildings are now de
voted to education.

Thomas Norton of Southwick, Eng

patriotic purpose Probate was op

Astronomers only in government
employ receive pay from the gov
ernment. Others receive pay from
the universities. But the majority
have no pay and are often sorely
pressed to get a living. They de
vote every moment from youth to
death in studying the supremely
magnificent laws of the sidereal uni
verse. History reveals that many
have suffered in the cold for want
of sufficient clothing, since no heat
of stove can be anywhere near a
telescope. And a number have died
in extreme poverty. — New York
