Facts Upon tbe Solar
from Ebon P. Davis.
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.
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
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-

The reader will see, therefore, that
dawn and twilight are counted as be
longing to the night when the equality
or nay ana nignt is conquered
The "explanation or the equinoxes"
given by Professor Joyce "as a mutter
ot general information" is very clear
ana concise, and needs no further ex-
planation; but I think that he is mis
taken in his deductions ln two in
stances. 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.
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'
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 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

candidate for judge, he would be eleoted.
But indications point to the same condi

E, TI. Cook, A. M., Ph. D., ex-head
master of the Rutgers college prepara
tory school, New Brunswick, N. 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
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. I have recommended It
to many of my friends, and they are STt
loud In its praise."
Can anytfiing be plainer?
Paine's celery compound makes peo
ple well. Just try it.

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

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
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
