There can be no subject more cal-
culated to Impress a man's mind with
bis own insignificance compared with
tbe overwhelming power and glory of
bis Creator than tbe study and contemplation of tlie firmament in all its
boundless Infinity. It Is not to be j
wondered ut that from tlie earliest
ages the subject has never failed to
exercise a fascination over men and
that those wbo by their genius and I
learning have most nearly succeeded
In solving Its mysteries have always
been revereneed and esteemed to be
among the wisest men of their day. l
More has been done within the Inst
fifty years than In all the rest of the
world's history toward the piercing of
the veil which shuts off from our eyes
.he beauties and mysteries of farof.
realms, nnd doubtless by means of the
spectroscope and Increased size In the
lenses of our telescopes we shall be
enabled before long to unravel still
more secrets of the universe.
The question as to whether Bpace Is
finite of Infinite can never be satisfactorily   argued   out   or    Indeed   even
thought of, for tbe human mind is Incapable of grasping the existence of n
limit to space, even In Its most abstract form, but the question of the Infinity of worlds and their distribution
ln the Infinity of space lies mure closely within the scope of human Intellect, j
for we have many material facts and
calculations to i_<> upon In discovering j
the probable answer to this most fas- j
clnatlng question.
Only as far back .is the seventeenth \
century astronomers placed the num
bei of stnrs lu the universe as a littli :
over 1,000, but this was absurd, ns the i
real number visible to the naked eye ls
about 7,(iikj. and perhaps treble that
number can lie seen by jiersons with
exceptionally good eyesight. When the
heavens, however, are examined
thisuigh a telescope the number of visible stnrs ls en irmously increased. In
fact, it has been calculated that the
nn.st powerful reveals a.s many as
UK i..'mi i.i i.m.' Yet what is that vast
number compared with Infinity? It
cannot even be likened to a >rralu of
sinid on the seashore, and yet If we
think the matter out carefully we shall
- r- ��� that the number of visible stars
ca.innt really be Infinite, for if tbey
wire the heavens would be a complete
blaze of llfrbt. This, of course, we
ki.ow Is far from being tbe case, and
indeed there cannot be any doubt thnt
in certain parts of the heavens at least
tbe number of visible stars is already
known, for even with the very stron-
nest telescopes there are blank spaces
whicb are absolutely devoid of stars
below a certain magnitude or even the
veriest trace of nebulous lij-bt.
These spaces are known to astronomers by the name of "coal sacks."
They contain no stars fainter than the
twelfth magnitude and, In fact, appear
tn mark those parts of the universe
which are comparatively thin. On the
other band, In other parts of the heavens we bnve nol by any means reaehed
the limit of telescopic resolvablllty. It
I.- curious, though, Hint these intensely
dnrk "holes'' lu the bright empyrean
nre mostly to be found In those parts
of the heavens where moat stars
abound, notably In the Milky Way,
These remarkable blank spots have
been a favorite theme of discussion
nnd argument among all astronomers,
for, whatever the real shape or distribution of thnt universe may be, they
point to the almost certain Inference
that in a particular direction at least
there is an actual limit to the number
of stars, .'iml If there Is a limit in one
direction we have every right to suppose that such is the case in others,
and that we bnve only to wall fur
telescopes strong enough to resolve
these parts which nre still unresolva-
ble to discover that a point can be
re&cbcd when all the stars of the universe are unfolded to our gaze.
If, now, we admit that the num' ���:
of visible stars is limited, the i_.:;i
qw-stion to be asked is, What ls the
ord t or shape of their distribution;
Vi ii u's astronomers have bad various

Catholics and 213,000,000 Protestants.
These two grent divisions nre subdivided Into Innumerable sects differing

dogma or church government. Next in

FALLING OF THE LEAVES.      ���^e^Kf'y^FV^m^ v
The Hind In tin-  Autumn Ilea II j   Had
Very l.illl.   to Do Hllh It.
When the storm cl >uds gather behind
the brown autumnal w toda a_ud cold
wind-i begin to bl iw, then the bright
leaves come drift :..- I iwn in fluttering,
fast thicken;;.���-' - rs until it almost
seems as i;' the wind were tbe active
agent and actually tore the leaves from
tbe trees. This, of course, Is not the
case. The leaf fall only becomes possible after a long preparation on the part
of the tree, whieh forms a peculiar
layer of cells in eacb leaf stem called
the cleavage plate.
This cleavage plate, or separation
layer, consists of a section of loosely
attached thin walled cells with a few
strands of stronger woody fiber in
among them, so, In the early autumn,
although the leaves appear as firmly
attached as ever before, they are really
only held on the tree by these few

BUfflelent to break the fragile support
and bring the leaves in showers to the
ground. We may see these woody
strands broken through in the leaf bc&t
of the horse chestnut, where they ap

the broken surface nnd are often spoken nf fr im tbeir fancied resemblance

ory and ash among other trees have
similar markings on their lent" scars
and from the same cause. On the root
uf the wild sarsaparllla, which projects
just above the ground, a like series of
little projections wlll be seen upon the
ringlike sear which surrounds the bud
where the leaf stalk bus Just separated.
Often the leaves separate and fall
even mi the quietest days, for their
own weight is sufficient to break- the
frail support. These hushed and supremely tranquil days we all remember, when our October walks are accompanied by the soft, small sounds o.
fnlling leaves, by the rustlings and dry
whisperings of their showering multitudes,   st. Nicholas.

Tbe fact that there is what is known
as tbe "thumb renter" in the brain, recognized by all surgeons, demonstrates
the Immense importance attached to it
by medical science. If there is a tend
ency toward paralysis the physician
notes it in the thumbs long before thc
malady shows Itself in other directions.
An operation to avert the calamity it
possible is frequently performed ou the

are stubborn, material, stolid, resistless. Tbe chimpanzee, which bas th.
