in its trace is no more strange and '
startling than was at first the theory of
the earth's spherical form, or of the
earth's diurnal and annual motions;
and it is just ad difficult ferns to con
ceive that we are riding through space
at the rate of nineteen _miles a second; ,
as it is to conceiveehat the earth we are
riding upon, is a vast animal body
floating in an attenuated ether and
gathering its food in the same mariner
that all other animals do.
Let us look at ,it a moment. . There
are animals whose natural element is
water s in that they live ; out of it they
die. Then there is another order of en
imale, whose natural element is the at
, mostihere that surrounds
,the earth.
They can only live by breathing that
atmosphere; out of it' they die. Then
above that order, is another, of bodice,
whose natural element is the attenua
ted ether spoken of above. That is
their element. In it alone they exist.
