LIGHT OF THE SUN
In Its Pure State We on the Earth
Have Never Seen It.
SOME RAYS DO NOT REACH US.
IT They Did They Would Probably De
stroy Life at It Exists onJOur Planet.
Daylight and Sunlight Differ Almost
as Much as Do Wine and Water.
"As clear as dnyllght" expresses In
ordinary language a maximum of plain
ness nnd obviousness. Nevertheless
dnyllfiht Is one or the most complicat
ed and capriciously variable of all nat
Almost everybody you meet will tell
yon that daylight and sunlight nre dif
ferent names for the same thing. They
think thev know that much of astron
omy anyway.- Hut astronomy does not
tcaeh anything of the kind. Astronomy
simply tells us that the sun is the pri
mary cause or source of daylight, but
It does not say that daylight and sun
light are Identical. Jit fact, they dif
fer almost as much as do water and
But the degree of difference varies.
Daylight Is a mlxturu of two kinds of
light, and Its quality is continually
changing, as everybody who has ever
liad nnythlng to do with photography
knows. The proportions of the two
kinds of light that make daylight are
not tho same from hour to hour and
hardly from minute to minute.
In clear weather, under an open sky,
with tho sun high In the heavens, day.
light, says Professor Nichols of Cor
nell, Is almost entirely sunlight. A
white surface exposed to an hnobscur
cd sky receives directly from the sun
85 per cent of the light that Illuminates
it and only Id per cent from other
parts of the sky dome.
This other part of the Illumination
Is called skylight, and It consists of
light, nearly all of which came orig
inally from the sun. but which has
been changed In quality 'by reflection
from the earth, from the clouds and
from dust and vapor In the air. Many
of the rays that characterized the orig
inal sunlight have been absorbed by
tho retlectlng substances, so that what
remains is no longer the same thing
On a completely overcast day thero
is no Hiiullght, properly so called, but
ouly skylight. Whether the sky is
overcast or not tho Intensity of day
light varies with tho hour of the day
and with the season. This is duo to
differences in tho elevation of the sun.
Tbcso variations in tho intensity of
daylight are surprisingly great. Tho
intensity Is on tho nverago ten times
as groat in midsummer as In midwin
ter, but this average comes far from
expressing the utmost difference that
can exist, for investigation has shown
that between tho clearest summer day
and tho darkest day of winter tho ra
tio of the intensity of daylight may be
as great as 300 to 1.
Besides, the quality of daylight Is
continually changing on account of tho
variations In tho relative amounts of
tho different rays of tho spectrum that
aro mingled In It Tho spectrum of
light is n gamut of vibrations, nnd the
result of tho selective action exercised
by tho substances and vapors, from
which the light has been rellected and
through which It has passed Is to pro
duce variations of color and of intensi
ty of color, ns well as of tho quantity
of invisible radiations present, nnd
theso variations rire not the less real
and Important becauso the eye Is not
always fully nwaro of them.
As to pure sunlight, we never see It
on the earth. Tho light that arrives to
us from tho sun lias neither tho color
nor the Intensity that it possesses be
fore it enters the atmosphere. Tho
ultraviolet raj'B especially are almost
completely screened off by the atmos
phere, and If they reached us In their
full force it Is probable that life as
now organized on this planet Avould be
destroyed by them.
Every different world has Us own
daylight, although all may he Illumi
nated by the same sun. Not ouly does
relative distance affect the intensity of
duyllgty on different planets, but tho
constitution of their various atmos
pheres has an equally great effect
Venus has a daylight twice as intense
as ours; Mars one-half as Intense. On
Jnptter the lutensify is 1-25 of that on
the earth; on Saturn. 1-00; on Nep
But each of these planets has an at
mosphere peculiar to Itself, and thus
the differences of daylight upon them
are made still more remarkable. This
Is one of tho (list things to bo taken
Into account hi all singulations about
Use' habltablllty of those other worlds.

" PAVED WITH GOLD.
There's Money In tho Street Scrapings
of an African Town.
Travelers declare. - says Harper's
Weekly, that at Axim, on the Gold
Coast of Africa, gold may actually be
picked up In the streets. When one
visitor, an Englishman, took the state
ment as a mere figure of speech his
host Immediately bade a woman serv
nnt go out into tho main street, gather
a bucketful of road scrapings and
work it for gold dust.
In ten minutes tho servnnt returned
with twogalvanIzed Iron buckets, one
tilled with road scrapings and the oth
er with water. Shu also brought three
or four wooden platters, varying In
size from a large plate to n saucer.
Removing , several handfuls of the
road scrapings and placing them In the
large platter, the woman picked out
nnd threw aside the large stones, peb
bles nnd bits of stick and thou mois
tened the remainder with wnter from
the other bucket This enabled her to
remove smaller refuse.
The residuum she put Into the next
smaller platter, and she repeated tho
process until there ivas.a quantity of
sand and gravel ready Tor treatment
This she sprinkled freely with water
and by a deft circular movement of
the platter brought the small gravel to
the outside, wheru ft could be thrust
over tho edge. When she had repeated
this operation three or four times she
treated the material, which now looked
uloro like mud than anything else, in
a still smaljer platter.
At last. In the smallest platter of all.
sho had the bucketful of sweepings re
duced to n handful or two of black
sand. This she carefully washed and
sifted. At last with a dexterous twist
she brought tho sand into a crescent,
the outer edge of which showed a thin
rim of yellow. It was unmistakably
gold dust Tho wholo operation had
taken half an hour, nnd It had pro
duced nbonl a shilling's worth of gold.
PIGS AND FIGURES.
Porkers From the Standpoint of All
Tho cducnted pig of the old tinio
sideshow, which gnfc-ely read figures
on a blackboard, was only a typo of a
class. Ills modern prototype is quite
his equal In devotion to tho exact sci
ence. By both instinct and fate ho Is
a mathematical animal. Subjectively
and objectively he is great on llgures.
They are dealt out to him. nnd ho
deals in them himself. He desires his
Bquare meals to be regulated dally by
the rule of three. In addition, ho deals
with his owner's Indebtedness. Ho Is
able to reduce a mortgage to fractions
with amazing rapidity. In measuring
the available contents of a pail of slop
bit Is a lightning calculator.
As n multiplier tho pig hasno equal,
counting on six to the Utter nnd two
litters hi tho year. At this rate, bar
ring accidents, tho sow's progeny will
amount to more than 1.000 In four
years. A week old pig is up In geom
etry, finding tho way home along the
hypotenuse short cut An old sow's
quickness in boxing tho compass in a
potato patch Is amazing. And when
It comes to a trougliful of sklnunllk
she Is the least common divisor; sho
wants It nil herself.
Objectively the porker flnds himself
stacked about with a bewildering ar
ray of figures his gaifis every djy on
pasture, his gains every da yon grain.,
his gains to the pound of grirfn. his
gains on pasture plus a dally ration,
hi gains on vegetables nnd roots
theso nnd a hundred other tabulations
surround him. Profit or loss, so far as
tbo pig is concerned, is almost purely
a matter of feeds and feeding, and
theso nro in thelrturn matters of al
most pure mathematical measure
ments; henco have resulted tho long
listed calculations available to the
farmer. W. J. Harsha in Breeder's
