FORCE OF GRAVITY.
How It Would Affect Man's Weight on
the Celestial Bodies.
If the planet Man be really Inhab
ited the people who lire there must bo
an exceedingly agile race. The av
erage weight of a man iu about 140
pounds, but the force of gravity on
Mars Is so much less than on I be
earth that the 140 pound man would
weigh only fifty-three pounds If he
were transported thither. With such
light weight, and still retaining the
same strength, an Individual would
be able to ran with the speed of an
express train, go . skipping over ten
foot walls and do various other ex
traordinary things. On the moon a
man would be even lighter.
But on the sun our 140 pounder
would have his troubles. Instead of
being an airy individual he would
weigh In the neighborhood of a ton
, and three-quarters. He would prob
ably have the greatest difficulty In
raising bis band, for that member
would weigh about 300 pounds.
According to scientific computation,
a man who on earth weighs 140
pounds would on the other celestial
bodies weigh as follows:
The moon, 23 pounds; Mars, 53
pounds; Venus, 114 pounds; Mercury,
110 pounds; Neptune, 123 pounds;
Uranus, 127 pounds; Saturn, 105
pounds; Jupiter, 371 pounds, and the
sun. 3.871 pounds. Chicago Tribune,
A SAD STORY.
The Misfortune That Came With a
Fowling Is now very iltilfr practiced
in the Shetland islands, although many
eggs are secured annually. Many
thrilling stories of fowling adventure
are told by the Sbetlanders. A man
who had undertaken to climb a certain
steep cliff was neither very experi
enced nor very brave, although he
boasted of being both, lie pushed up
ward, however, briskly without look
ing behind until he bad got up about
100 feet, when he stopped to breathe.
The pause was fatal to his self posses
sion, and he called out in tones of ter
ror, "Men. men, I am going I am go
ing." But he still held on for a little,
and it was not till he had shrieked
many times "I am going" that he did
? fall headlong.
nis comrades, having thus been
warned, moved the boat out of the way
sol that the poor fellow came sheer
down into the deep water. Mighty

to the surface, when of course he was
Instantly caught hold of and dragged
Into the boat. After many gasps and
much spluttering of sea water from his
mouth his only remark was: "Eh,
men. this Is a sad story. I have lost
my snuffbox.,,-"Sketches and Tales

Giving evidence against a man on a
charge of disorderly conduct at Bow
street police" court, a constable said
that the accused behaved In a very
violent and disorderly manner in Lei
cester square on Tuesday evening. He
quarreled with a cabman, and eventu
ally the witness took him Into cus
tody, believing him to be drunk. At
the police station the prisoner denied
that be had been drinking, and the
doctor who examined him reported
that he had chewed tobacco to such an
extent that It bad had the same effect
upon him as alcohol. Pall Mall Ga
