This process is no different  from that which takes place in any  ordinary condition of ill health. Tho  disease of the arteries which attacks  old 'i'people is simply an.inflamiation."  The irritation-which causes this action of the phagocytes in the aged is  caused by the production in the body  cf injurious microbes, and Professor  MetchnikofT's theory is that by aiding the phagocytes in their struggle  against these organisms they can be  prevented from attacking the body.

And  all she got was the paltry sum of  forty dollars per month.    And yet  Trustee would   try   to   insinuate  that my statement that Miss MilH-  gari was   an eminently   qualified  teacher in   every particular, was  not   true,    because   she   had  not  taught over five months.    His obscure mind failed to make a note of  the fact that she qualified herself  for life before she began teaching.  I defy him to deny the above facts,  consequently he cannot be taken  too seriously.    Now, Mr. Trustee,  J did not three teachers; .1 only mentioned one before, in  lower grades,  receive fifty dollars,  fifty-five and  sixty dollars respectively, and  did  not-hold as good certificates,   while  Miss  Milligan  only  received forty  dollars.

DAVfH SPENCER  (Naoafmo) Ltd.  ���������&C  OUR ANNUAL  THE LIFE OF THE--SUN  The prodigality with which the sun  dispenses;heat and the possibilities  which arise from this prodigality  have found the subject of an address  delivered in London by the great as-  ... trononicr, Sir Robert Ball, the other  night. .  He could not. escape from the operation of the simple, rule,, he said,  that as it gave out beafc the sun's body must get smaller, What the sun  would become in the future he could  not say, but if one could goto the  sun with a measure he would find it  had shrunken sixteen inches in 2-1  hours. ������������������  i Ten million years ago the sun was  nearly a minion times as large as at  at present, and the "simple princij io  that a red hot poker is a trifle larger  than when cold must asio apply to the  , sun. 1  The', most     important question regarding the sun, he said, is the manner in    which     the heat    is kept up.  Supposing every particle of coal were  taken from the earth and poured into  the sun, how long would it keep that  orb    going.   It is     a scientific truth,  the lecturer declared,  that the entire  coal, supply of the     -world could not  ceive the sun's     heat for more than  ten thousanth   part     of a single moment of time.        This prodigality  of  heat cannot be kept up |vy combustion  there must be some tremendous force  of energy..    That is, however, an idea,  which is assuming a clearer and more  definite shape, which gives proof how  the the sun's heat is kept'.up.  The sun. it was said, by the mere  iact of attraction of its particles  g,ives us as much heat as could her t  from burning.. 8.000 globes of ecru  When this calculation is worked out,  and it is remembered- that it is not  only to'the earth that the sun gives  heat, it shows that the sun might be  kept going for 24,000,000 years.  A suggestion was made that the  execution bf the sun's energy has been  due to radium. If radium was in the  sun, as it was in the bulkof the earth  then, instead of a paltry 2-1,000,000  years allowed the earth it would be  1.000,000,000 years-  ABB  pv  H  BAR BOPl'LIED WITH BBM,  W-rNK.4.
