System CONCERNING THE EQUINOXES The Astronomical Controversy Re newedStatements of the Professor Corrected With Care An Argu ment Between the Writers as to the Length of Day and Night at Different Parts of the Globe-An Intimation That Mr. Joyce's Date Are Mixed. For the faturdav Tribun. I hereby otter my slncereut thanks to the Drofesaer for his verv able article on the equinoxes in Saturday's Tbib une, ana the zeal for trutu shown by him in taking up a subject that should have been discussed by another, but who dropped it as if it were a piece of reu-not iron. While the professor has sided with me in correcting, the falw notion that "day and night are equal in all parts oi me gioDe," yet ne "tninKs mat i am mistaken in one instance." I feel proud to know that we have come out It is possible that the professor got his dates mixed up a little, for the day ia 24 hours at the polar circle on J une 22, when the sun is in the summer solstice; but not on the equinox nor any otner time of tne year. THE FIFTH SUMMARY. In his fifth nummary, the professor makes another mistake when he says "the sun appears above the horizon in the arctic regions from March 21 until wept. 22." There exists tne some phy sical impossibility to ine trutu or mis assertion as there is to the correctness ot the idea that the day is 24 hours long at the pulur circle on the equinox. On March 21 the any is the same length as on Sept. 22, as stated above, viz., ID hours, 20 minutes, so the suu is at least 4 hours below the horizon on that date: but as we move north from the polar circle tbe day becomes longer, and the night shorter, until at tue very pole tne mgnt lias entirely vanished ana the day is zi nours long. As the sun apparently ascends from tne vernel equinox juarcn zi, to tne summer solstice June 22, the 24 hour day descends from the pole to the polar circle, and that is as near as tne sun and the 24 hour day come to one another. From June 22 to Sept. 22 the twenty- four-hour day moves north at the same rate as the sun moves south until on the latter date the conditions and the facts are the same as they were on March 21. In conclusion, I would respectfully ask Professor Joyce tne following ques- AND PRESIDENT COOK! President of tne National TcachersVAssocia- tion Paine's Celery Compound. PULPIT NOTES. IUt. W. S.

But before attempting to correct what I think to be mistakes in his artiole, it is my duty to put myself right In the eye or the reader In wunt the professor thinks to be a mistake iu my article. KEOARDIXa THE QUOTATION. In my previous article I wrote as fol lows, which Professor Joyce quotes: "The very fact that is the cause of day and night being equal on the enuator, demands that the clay should be at each pole twenty-four hours long and the night nothing." Of Uie above the professor says: "This assertion gives the wrong impression and should be corrected." I clRim that the above "assertion" is correct, and the profess or bas failed to show its weakness. In his attempt to "correct the assertion" he said: "Between the polar circle and the pole the days are reckoned as months." Well, what if they are, does that deprive me of the right to say that the day is twenty-four hours long at the pole in my etlort to show tne error of tne old saying tnat "day and night are equal in all parts of the globe? " Surely not I had a curnose in saying that the day Is twenty-four hours long at the pole; to show that the whole 360 degrees is occupied by the day, and that there is no room for tbe night, it la only by repeating the above a sufficient number of times that you can "count the day as months" at the pole: Not only did I have the right to say so, but I bud no right to say anything else, Inasmuch as It is impossible lor tne aay as it manes up a date in the year to be longer than twenty four hours, l ue assertion does not give the wrong Impression, conse quently there is nothing to be cor' rected. In my previous article I said also that at the pole "Day reigus supreme and the night is annihilated." The professor takes exception to this and savs: "He does not reitrn suuremeand annihilate the night, tor she follows him in his apparent course, disputing every inch oi territory and casting her mantle over one-nan or the globe." l hardly know what to say of the above insinuation as to my meaning; but my sense of his intelligence constrains me to hope that the professor did not think for a moment that I meant thut the night had been anniuilated from tbe face of the globe. The substance of what i said is this, "At the pole the i say We are neither dismayed nor aisueart- oued at the power displayed by the tem porary success oi the political Dosses aim rings, because we know that our cause is right sud that tlie people will sooner or later come to comprehend tnis fact in a manner that sunn control their votes, ana then th man who serkg to buy and sell votes, influence, nominations aud elections win be Known ana recoguizoa lor jui what he is the mst dangerous and uesino able character in a Republican form of government. If manhood is to survive, ibis corruption in politic must be eradi cated or suppressed. Possibly we should de spair aid we believe tue vote returned for our candidate last year represents tne numerical strength of those who preferred to tee him elected. Up to within three weeks ot that election reports through iu lelligdut aud reliable sources irom all seo- tious of the couuty satistied onr committee that JUr.

Tlieu cume boodle and bigotry, crazing what could not be made drunuorcor rupted, and through slavish obedience to party whips and aided with the sophistry aud specious Plea of "Dont throw away your vote on Chase," tbe enemy tri- umnhed. We assert, theretore. that the result or that election was not a verdict against our candidate or cause, sud we believe that li boodle, bigotry and slavish obedience to party whip could be eii'iunatea irom tne contest this fall, and Mr. Chase were a candidate for judge, he would be eleoted. But indications point to the same condi tions as being likely to prevail that pre dominated last year. We have no part lu such a contest. Wbeu susceptibility to these sinister in fluences shall have beeu somewhat out grown, we shall again call on Mr. Chase to become a candidate lor junge. tlAMkS MA HON.

J., and president of the national educational association, graduated at llowdoin In 1306. Ho organized the Westchester, Penn., state normal school, and was the first principal; was principal of the Co lumbus, O., high school. From 1844 to 1839 he was principal of the normal school at Potsdam, N, Y., spending $80,- 000 ln the erection of new buildings and renovation of old. Says the Journal of Education: Mr. Cook is widely known and highly ap preciated for the genuine boom that every institution with which he has been connected has enjoyed, and from the prominence given hiin by the state associations of Ohio, New York and New Jersey. He has the tact to take advantage of circumstances, the abil ity to decide promptly, and the energy to execute. He has accomplished enough to satisfy any man's profes sional ambition, and yet the best work and highest honors ought to be ahead of him. Dr. Cook bas been sick. Paine's celery compound has madq him well. As it has made thousands of others well. Prof. Cook Is one of the editors of the Educational Review. He knows Just what the English languago means. Here Is what he writes: "Last winter I had a severe attack of the grip, which was followed by com plete nervous prostration. I lost 40 pounds of flesh ln as many days. After trying change of climste and various remedies without any apparent benefit, at the suggestion of a friend I began to take Paine's celery compound. Its ef fect was very marvelous. My appetite returned, my digestion waB improved, and I began to sleep regularly, which I had not done for weeks. I am still talc ing the compound, but regard myself as a well man.

THE PROFESSOR'S MISTAKES, Now, having attempted to explain what appeared to the professor to be mistakes on my part, I shall endeavor to correct what appears to me as mis takes on his part. As I happen to "live, move and have my being." ln the northern hemisphere, I shall direct my attention to tnat part or our planet The reader will please remember that what is true of the northern in our summer is true of the southern in our winter, Professor Joyce says "The correct idea is this: The day is 24 hours long at the polar circlet and not at the poles, which are 23 degrees aud 28 minutes away from the jxilar circles (mark the difference ." Yes, Proles sor, i do "mark the amerence," but not "the correct idea." The correct idea is this, the day is not 24 hours long at the nolar circles on the an tumnal equinox. Sept 22, for the elm pic reason that it is a physical Impos sibility, As the professor savs, tne poiarcircie la 23 dporeea and 28 minutes awav from the pole, and the sun on Kept. 22 is 90 degrees away from tne poie; so we see that the sun at noon on the above date is distant from the polar circle 90 degrees minus z aegreeB ana zt min utes. while at mtdnlgnt or the same date it Is distant from the same point 90 degrees plus 23 degrees and 28 min utes, or lis degrees ana m minutes, measuring over the Dole: and inas much as it Is impossible to see the sun when more than 90 degrees away which fact is the cause of day and night being equal on the equator it follows that it Is impossible for Professor Joyce's twserlion to be "the correct idea." Rv a little calculating we find that the day at the polar circle on tbe 22d of September Is in round ' numbers you know what an atbletie old cent he is- now. it someoouy wouiu give aiiss uaisy a pointer, she would thank them after warua.
