TIIC S.TORY is told that at some coniention
theie was a loll tall of stairs, and a dele
gite Ironi each was required lo tell of the
chief productions and advantages of his
state. The delegate from the Dakota painted a
glowing plctuic ol the waiing wheat fields
stretching for mile alter mile, and with an
abundant harvest, making glad the heart uf the
hajpy farmtr 'ihe tahloinlan told how small
wrre Ihe riches of the gold mines of his state
as compared with the richei of its soil; before
our longing ejes ou eau apjiear the vlne.iards
and the ounce groves, the roses blo-oming be
neath the glorious summer sun of winter dais,
and In jour heart you earned for a home in
such a land (.dorado came, with its story n(
rugged mountains bursting with untold mini rat
wealth. In the long list of states each claimed
a rare combination of natural icsourccs and ad
vantages until Massachusetts was leached Ihe
speaker from that state said: "I have hratd with
great pleasure of the wheat fields of the west,
of the fair Pacific coast land that flows wirh
milk and honey, of the iron and coal of Tmn.
sylvania, and of the south with every advantage
which natuie could bestow upon that favored
land, and 1 rome to tell ou that in my state
we have nunc of these adiantages, but with us
the thief product is brains."
And he was right. It has been said that in
phnting corn the rilgnm Fathers had to drill
holes In the rock and in each hole diop a her
ring as fertilizing agent But on that roik
bound soil the people of that state have built a
civilization which the south may well stud.i
With limited agricultural possibilities, bu.ving
fiom the south their cotton, fiom Penncylvania
their lion, from Maryland and Virginia their coal,
from Georgia their pine, and trom the west their
foodstuffs, and evm itnpoitlng from Canada and
l.urope their mill operatives, they haie estab
lished on this artificial found it Ion an Industrial
sttucture which demands our admiration Their
ihlef product mult have been brains, or else
they could neier have accomplished so minli;
and never has Ihe value of such a pioduct been
more clearly demonrtrated than in Massachu
setts. With a population of only S.'JOn.fM in
1S10, and on this artificial foundation ol Import
ed law materials and foodstuff, Massachusetts
in 159H had an Industrial business which emplojej
a capital of $0,000,000, with a product of $5S,
eon.ooo, analnst a tolal capital Invested in manti
facturing in the same sear in the fourteen south
em states from Marland to Texas, of $iT57,nnO,niV),
with a rrnduct of 71,OM,ooo In other words,
the 2,230,000 people in Massachusetts took our
cotton, our lumber, our iron and the west's rood,
itutfi, and produced lJ.non.onn more of manu
factured goods than we pi educed in the south.
Shall It be taid that in the creation of busi
ness the foundation of civilization upon which
must reit our schools, our churches and eiery
thli.tr else that combines to m.ke life worth liv
ing- Marsachusrtts has greater brains or puts Pa

cleiks, officials and a law depart

Let us say the line can led, In the

dlstanro of olio mile, the work has,
been measured, with this lesiilt, which
stands on tho bonks as oO.C'O.ooo "ton

me.isuied also, aveiaged four mills to
a ton mile, so that the total revenue
from the fi eight business for that year
amounted to $.'00,000. The expense la
to be measured by a unit which Is
called the "train mile." in this in
stance It Is the trelght train mile. The
Immedlato cost of running a fi eight
train a mile can be computed leadlly,
and It includes: Cost of tuel for the
locomotive, and wages of an engineer,
a fireman, a conductor, a couple of
brakemen, and a flagman. The number
of cars may be anything you plense so
far as these expenses aio concerned,
for It will not nffect them much. In
the present case, say that the average
tralnload was 400 tons, a large, but n
iciund flgtlie. Theiefote the number
of train miles that had to bo run to
earn the J:'00.000 was 123,000. Train
mile cost vi as reckoned at 75 cents.
Therefore, we have: Expenses, J9J.750

For, by Incieaslng the tralnload tho
number of tialn miles was lessened,
and tialn expenses weie Inevitably
reduced to tho tune of neaily $19,000.

it has been found that tho earth'i

closely synchronize with visible solar
manifestations. Here is the most in
teresting yet most perplexing problem
In the study of the sun: and within
this Is hound up knowledge that may
some day open wide an ample page of
Inestimable benetlt to man. What
bonds theie are between earth and
sun, aside from the matter of light and
heat, may some time cleat ly be learned
and the probability that periodic va
riations of weather are due to these
solar influences Is something that will
be of vast value to understand Di
vining, as it Is vulgaily understood. Is
merely the duping of fools by charla
tans. Rut what If divining be put

Norman Lockyer, the British astronn
