It Is often remarked that the inot
Intereatlng iktsou of a luiully, and
generally the most btstuUful, a well
u tf ntrki. is the buby. So In our
study of aJtroDomy we shall find, by
ulu observation, that the mme
principals hold good. I hope that
reader of your valuuble paper will
kindly accept and consider carefully
the theories that I am attemptlag to
explain. It Is true astronomy has,
from time Immemorial, carried with
It theories which have been Bpeoulat
Ive in their nature and churacter.
The theories that I desire to present
are principles in mechanics with
which the reader may be familiar
and the claims I ttdvocate can be sus
tained only" by Ihe merits which they
I am well aware that tho apparent
movement of the satellite of the two
farthest planets, also those of some of
tho comets, limy lie referred to as ex
ceptions, but as there are evidently
forces In operation at those remote
distances, the same a;between those
bodies aud the rtun. In my humble
opinion, in this electrical age of
scientific research, with the advant
ages presently being obtained, that
ere. long natural forces will be found
to be operating upon them In a
Mercury Is the nearest known
planetary body to the Sun. This
lieautiful planet will appear as morn
ing star alxiut the 2oth Instant. You
will readily distinguish it by the
fiery-red, or cometlcal, fl re-eye
a a m r
apjiearance. In sjieaking oi .Mercury
I shall use the neuter .pronoun be
cause Mercury Is a mere child In the
planetary world. Its diameter Is
about three thousand miles, ana
it travels once around the Sun, from
west to east, In about eighty-eight
days. It rotates on Its axis from
west to east, giving Its people twen
ty-four hours and five minutes to
each day, or day and night. Its
orbital velocity Is about 171)0 miles
per minute and travels at an average
distance of 3.),0()0,()00 miles from the
Sun and in an orbit which Is more
elliptical than any of the orbits of
the principal planet, its least dis
tance being about 2S,150,00 miles,
while Its greatest distance from the
Sun Is alstut 40,000,000 miles. Its
orbit is inclined alxmt seven degrees
to the ecliptic, being more than twice
the amount of the inclination of the
orbits of any of the rest of the prin
When In perihelion or nearest
approach to the Sun, it Is much
nearer to the Sun than it Is natural
for it to remain, for the centrifugal
repelling forco of the Sun at
Mercury's perihelion distance con
siderably exceeds the attraction or
centripetal force of the Sun for the
planet, and thus it is gradually
borne farther away from the Sun
while moving along its orbit, while
at the same time, the momentum
which it received when it was ap
proaching, and when in and near its
perihelion, now aids the Sun's force
in carrying it to iu aphelion, or to
the farthest part of Its orbit from
the Sun, at w hich distance it is be
yond its mean place and where the
attractive force of the Sun for the
planet exceeds the repelling force of
After It leovea perihelion it gradu
ally loses its speed and momentum
until it arrives at aphelion. When
traveling from aphelion to perihelion
it Is gradually drown a little nearer
the Sun by the excess of the Sun's
rerdripetal over his centrifugal force,
thus gaining speed and momentum
in proportion until it arrives at IU
perihelion again. The momentum
acquired since leaving its aphelion
carries it nearer the Sun again than
its mean place, and so it Is thrown
off as before and always in an ellip
In "Cometie; Relutions" I took the
Sun as a chaotic, cometary, massive
bulk, and regarding Mercury and
other wanderers of our system In the
same natural position I proceed to
give the steps of development of the
members of this grand system.
Mercury, the Earth, and all the
planets may be as old as the Sun, but
they have not developed as fast,
therefore he gradually became mas
ter, and now holds supreme control.
At one time the Sun, no doubt,
was a little nebulous bulk, or cloud,
In etherlal space wandering hither
and thither or governed by fixed
laws. From such a state he gradu
ally developed by drawing nebulous,
chaotic matter to himself until he
arrived at the state of perfection
descrilied In my last article.
Does one planet affect the move
ments of another? Most certainly
it does. Mercury the messenger of
the deity, Is represented In ancient
mythology as one of the horses or
draughters of the universe.
When Milton had grown to man
hood, he took a tour over a large
portion of the continent of Europe.
In his travels he met and conversed
with many of the sagea and philoso
phers. One of the great beacon
lights ho bad the plwisur of eLo
was none other than (ialili-o, the
astronomer whne fume -pnnd
all over Europe. With this great
character he coiiimo'i'Hl, nfelvin
from bliu a grand store of philo-o-phy.
Next we find the gr-at juiet In
the city of Ixjiulon his quiet homo.
Ia a lew years a p-ui Lrewthes out
from its environs, und soon its
praises enooiupas the glols. As au
astronomical and scriptural poem
"Paradise 1-or.t" has no equal. Iu
this poem Miiton no doubt takes the
advantage of (Julileo's philosophy.
He sneaks of the angels good and
bad flying on und on through the
medium of Interstellar space, he
represents his angels as busing
Wings with which they projiel them
selves through that immense space
bttween . Heaven and Hell, and
between the Sun and the Kurth.
Oould it be possible fur anything to
tly and use wings if there is no re
rl, ting medium '.' So also we read In
the Hook of hooks of material Is-ings
ascending, being borne away on
angels' wings. The religion of all
peoples and nations teach that there
U a medium is-rvading Interstellar
space through which winged angels
may fly. So I maintain there is a
resisting medium Intervening inter
stellar space, which is pervaded by a
mightier und more suttle power than
the electrical currents that encircle
this glols;. The dissuvery of this
suttle power would lead to a direct
communication with all the planets ;
giving us a kuowlodge of how they
are peopled and of their interest and
Space is filled by many of the hor
ticultural publications, with matter
pertaining to fruit drying. A lively
dlscushion Is now on relative to dip
ping prunes in lye. Some successful
or:hardists do not dip and some do.
Ono writer, A. H. Carter, says that
dipping cleans the prune from the
hi nun which acts only as a covering
tOj thn prune and protects It from
sit i-?cald and atmospheric damage
while growing. Then, too, the lye
cb'H'ks the skin of the prune so that
ev ip mitlon is more rapid, fur with-
ot the checking of the skin the
prSinc will not evaporate until lieut
o'"n it, and bent usually in opening
th' iiruno causes a loss of iiectine.
TfA.' rgain where there is acid in
t!-r'' ? the prune, lye destroys
the ucid nnd makes the prune sweet
er a. id the skin more tender. Mr.
W. C. Anderson, of San Jose, says
that ail dryers have found the pro
cess of dipping in hot lye of great
advantage in most cases while in
others it is apparently of little use.
Hestotes that the skin of the prune
Is covered with a substance of an
oily nature which is removed by the
lye. Unless this is removed It Is
very difficult to dry them. He
throws out tho warning not to allow
the prunes to remain in the hot lye
too long, and questions whether it is
necessary to leave them in the lye
long enough to check the skins. F.
M. Righter lays down the usual rule
of leaving them in the boiling lye
until the skin shows many zigzag,
hair-like, "cuts" or checks. He
states that there are several kinds of
dipping machines in use. Some of
these are run by steam in such a
way as to suve the greater part of
the labor of handling the fruit.
H. Aiken does not dip his prunes,
but Instead runs them through a
machine which perforates the prunes
with needles." From which reports
it seems that the success of dipping
depends upon how it is done, (.'old
lye probably doesn't assist much,
and a long exposure in hot lye cooks
the batch. Skillful manipulation is

The New York Sun, the great
Democratic journal, comes out
squarely in a recent Issue ami sums
matters up as follows :
"The Cleveland administration has
taken a billion dollars from the
pockets of the people iu four months.
It ha diminished the wealth of the
nation by an amount nearly equal to
the entire sum of money in circula
tion in the United States today. It
has cost the people of the United
States three times ns much as the
colossal swindle of the Panama
canal, which shook France from
center to circumference, cost the
French people. It has biken enough
money from the people to build the
Nicaraugua canal ten times over.
These are appalling figures. Hut
they show tho truth. They demand
the earnst consideration of every
American citizen on this anniversary
of the nation's birth. ISIuster and
prevaricate as they may, the mouth
pieces of Democracy cannot obwure
this tremendous fact. In four
mouths llemocrntie rule has robbed
the American pi-ople of l,non,non,.
Mr. Democrat, how do you like

The lhe-tnii Journal of Commerce
laments that American textile fabrics
are not finding a resting place on the
shelves of foreign merchants. The
reason assigned why more liberal
sales ure not inude to foreigners is
the fact that we have not yet been
able to supply tlio borne demand.
That Journal rejoices though that our
iron industries are sending products
abroad, which successfully conqs-te
with products of tho-' foreign fac
On that subject the joliriiul thus
"Though our manufacturers of iron
do not occupy so conspicuous a place
in our list of exports us do our
breadstuff, they do not, however,
figure insignificantly there. They
are always in fuvor and siiecial'y so
licited wherever they are once intro
duced. In lirail the American lo
comotive and railway carriage are
almost exclusively employed. In
iny l-y ninety-six of our locomotives
were sent to that country, valued at
$97t!,ooo. In the same year Cuba
took liny-one of our locomotives,
and England even bad some consid
eration for them. At the annual
agricultural show held this year at
Southampton, England, there were
specimens of reapers and self-binders
from three countries America F.ng
luml aud Canada all priced at the
same value. According to unbiased
testimony the American machine
was lighter, simpler und more con
venient than any of the others, and
the draft easier. The American
horse rakes were neater, lighter, and
5 tier cent, cheaper than the Eng
lish makes. The Knglish machines
are strong, lint frequently needlessly
so, and neatness and tine workman
ship do not seem to he studied. Iast
year F.ngland took from us agricul
tural implements of these kinds to
the value of tMiL'.j.nno. ( icrmuny aud
France ulso favored our machines
to the extent of i:!i)(l,(100 and I."iO,OUO
respectively. In speaking of the
American plow one of our consuls
in F.ngland refers to it us 'very much
superior to any other kind, particu
larly as a digging machine, lieing
lighter, and the shears aud points
more durable. The Knglish makers,
he says, 'cannot properly chill points
and other parts, their process render
ing the metal very brittle, while the
American process mnkes the iron
tough and nt the same time very
hard. It Is also susceptible of a high
polish, which is another advantage.
In certain localities wooden-beamed
plows cannot be disposed of at any
price. If our manufacturers would
adopt the stylo of iron-beamed plows
the trade would be extended.' The
(tcrman policy is to keep out of that
country all the American machines
possible, and the sumo jnilicy is op
erative against all cither nationalities,
its object lieing to hold the home de
mand for domestic manufacturer).
Such articles as cariiet sweepers,
freezers, wringers, meat choppers,
etc., which were formerly largely
linportisl Into (ierinnny from the
United States, have been replaced by
those of German make. American
agricultural Implements are ulso giv
ing way to those of German manu
facture. The American lawn mower
however, nppinrs lo remain in good
favor in spite of obstacles. The
American tools and machines are
admittedly sujs-rior in all essential
points to those made in Germany,
and were it not for German customs
laws and classification would lie
much more largely used."
To what extent Japanese indus
tries are carried is summarized in
this paragraph taktu from a report
of the French minister to his gov
ernment and VeporUsl in tho ofilicial
monitor of Commons'. For twenty
five years, he says, the government
of tho Mikado has spared no efforts
fu developing national industry, and
in rendering Japan in every respect
free from its present tributary nia
tions with foreign countries. "It
may be said that there is no branch
of industry which the Japanese have
not tried to establish for themselves.
Without doubt some errors have
l,ecn committed and subventions
sunk in pure loss, but it cannot lie
denied, for the facts sis-ak for them
selves, that industry has made very
remarkable progn-ss during the last

The Closure Kale la the Senate.
Tho impression generally prevails
that a bill to reHstl the Sherman law
cun Isj carried in the House without
any trouble, but that It will l reso
lutely antagonized iu the Senate,
w here the silver sentiment is rela
tively more jxitent and nbstinaU
it is believed that in the end the
rciM-al w ill bo accomplished, but the
facilities for delaying it are such
that it Is not likely to come forsev
oral months. Prsldent Cleveland
favors the adoption of the closure
rule in the Senate to prevent this
anticipated delay, and forts curly
action UKin the subject. There is no
reasonable, objection to lie made to
this plan of hastening the solution of
a most important problem. I he
closure rule implies nothing more
than the prevention of filibustering
by the minority against a measure
which the majority is desirous to
pass. It does not involve the id"a
of stifling debute, but of stopping it
after reasonable time has boon given
to it, and causing the question to be
put to a final vote. There is nothing
arbitrary about it except in the
sense of compelling the few to re
spect the wishc of the many after
proper opportunity has been granted
lor both sides lo present their
It is not likely, however, that the
Senate will consent to adopt such a
rule. The members of that body
nave uniformly set their faces against
all propositions for the limitation of
debate on any account or in any
emergency. Precedent gives to each
senator the privilege of talking in
definitely whenever he Is so dixistsl,
regardless of the motive or effect of
his long-wlndedness. On several
notable occasions, the passage of
important bills has thus been de
layed for weeks, anil in some ill
stand's entirely prevented. The
probability Is that those, who are In
favor of the repeal of the Sherman
act would not vote for a closure rule
to hasten the result, or to even avert
deleat. This signifies that the sena
tors from the silver states, repre
senting; only a fraction of the popu
lation and wealth of the country,
and standing iu opposition to the
sentiment of a large majority of the
American people upon a subjis-t of
vital interest, will lie able to block
the wheels of legislation at their
pleasure, and make it impossible for
the majority to perform its duty und
carry out its purposes without a long
and exHsficruting contest. It is diffi
cult to reconcile this fuct with the
idea that wo art living under a
Republican form of government, and
that majority is tho supreme prin
ciple of our political philosophy ; but
such Is the situation, nevertheless,
and we have to make the most of it.
The Senate is a law unto itself in
the matter, and exicriciicc has
demonstrated that it cannot be
expected to repudiate or modify the
precedent which gives tho minority
a chance to obstruct the course of
public business and delay the enact
ment of laws for the conservation
and promotion of the best interests
of the country. Ololio-Democrat.
The South Carolina Whisky Troubles.
After a cessation of two weeks tho
whisky war broke out here afresh
today, reports a Charleston (S. C)
news-gatherer on August 1st. One
of the state's spies seized a barrel of
corn whisky which had been lying
at the South Carolina Railroad depot
for six or eight weeks. It was
marked "Diamond II," but had no
further consignee on the head. It
camo from Statesville. N. C. The
constable did not appear to know
what to do with It, so he took it to
the county jail and hxlged It there.
This proceeding w ill probably bring
the Evans law up in the Federal
courts, where the anti-dispensers are
anxious to take It. The South Caro
lina railway is in the hands of a re
ceiver, and it is more than probable
some lively legal proceedings will
follow today's seizures.
Ijtst Tuesday tho United States
Mint in San Francisco, paid over its
counter II.DfiO.OOO In gold ccln which
had leen deposited for minting, al

from June 22d to August 1st. This
sum re;.resentsl the refined metal
from tho ore sent to this city from
the gold mines of the coast during a
little over a month. The monthly
average is aliout l,2."i0,0OO, which
would go to show that mining in
California is by no means a lost art.
If hydraulic mining be restored the
output of gold in California will Is
at least doubled.
When the money of a country is

Stewart's Silver Mil.

silver which he will introduce at the
earliest opportunity. The first sec

sis'tion of tho act of January IS, 1873,
be, und the same is, hereby re-enact
ed, which feuds as follows: "That
gold and silver bullion brought to
the mint lor coinage shall lie received
and coined by the proor officers for
the benefit of depositors; provided
that it shall lie lawful to refuse at the
mint any deposit of less value than
loo and any bullion so base as to
lie unsuitable for operations of the
mint, and provided also that when
gold and silver are combined, if
either of these metals be iu such
small proportion that it cannot lie
saparated advanUigeously, no allow

tho value of the metal."
