THE CHANGING TIDES
Causes That Contribute to the Bise
and Fall of the Ocean
Many people regard the rise and fall
of the ocean as a profound and baffling
The mystery really is not very hard
to understand. As all know, the
surface of the ocean rises and falls
twice in every lunar day, this rise ap
pearing along a coast to be a horizon
tal motion—always ebbing or flowing.
Now, the lunar day consists of about
twenty-five hours. Thus, of course, tha
"time"' of the tides varies each day.
The tides, moreover, do not always rise
to the same height. Every fortnight,
with the new and full moon, they rise
very much higher than at other times.
These high tides are called "spring"
tides, the alternating low tides being
termed "neap." When the moon is
nearest to the earth the rise and fall
of the ocean are markedly increased.
Thus the spring tides are" greatest at
the equinoxes—i. e., at the end of
March and the end of September.
Yes, you say, but what has the moon
to do with it aJlf Surely it is the
sun which attracts the earth.
That is so. But, although the sun's
attraction on the earth is far greater
than the moon's, the moon is so very
much nearer to the earth that the dif
ference between its attraction at the
center and on the surface is throe
times as great as the sun's. And it is
this difference which causes tides.—

been retarded by the dam being con

Formerly it took a protracted cold" spell
of considerably belww freezing or a drop
in temperature to zero.
"The area of frozen surface will
increase greatly to-night and the
streams of the system will become gen
erally icebound," said E. R. Demain,
local weather forecaster, in speaking
of the river conditions.
Fall in Temperature Steady
There was a steady fall in tempera
ture beginning yesterday shortly after
noon, when the maximum tem[>erature
was registered at 36. The S p. m. read

Although the drop in temperature
was sudden there were comparatively
few homeless men to be taken care <k
last night. The quarters of the Salva
tion Army were sought out by many
men without pflae-es to go, but there
were only nineteen applicants for a
warm place to sleep at police headquar
On many wanner nights the police
men have been asked to care for as
many as thirty in one night. Stoves
were kept going all nigihtt in many in

So far little damage has been done
by the frozen snow and rain. The
greatest inconvenience was caused by
frozen moisture clinging to w'ires and

Two other persons have suffered pain
ful injuries from falls on the ice. Mrs.

She was admitted to the Harrisburg

fected to-day by the cold wave was the
entire section of the country east of
the Mississippi, where the coldest

country, except in Florida, where rain

Philadelphia, Dec. 15.—The first real

zero temperature to-day in the moun

about the same temperature was re

EULTAN FORCED INTO WAR
WHEN FLEET IS ATTACKED
London, Dec. 15, 6.27 A. M.—A
dispatch to Reuter'B Telegram Com
pany from Constantinople by way of
Amsterdam gives the gist of the speech
from the throne by Sulton Mehmed V
at the opening of the Turkish parlia
ment Monday. The Sultan announced
that he was forced to declare war when
the Russian fleet attacked the Turkish
fleet in the Black Sea and England and
France began actual hostilities by send
ing troops to the Turkish frontiers.
"The necessity was forced upon us
to resist with armed force the policy
of destruction which at all times has
been pursued against the Islamite
world by England, Russia and Franco
and which has assumed the character
of religious persecution," the Sultan
"In consonance with the Fetwa
(Sacred Moslem law) I called all Mos
lems to a Holy war against these Pow
ers and those who help them. I am con
vinced that our forces on land and soa
will add fresh victories to those gained
by the glorious armies of Germany and
Austria-Hungary against the common
"I can state with must satisfaction
that our relations with the Powers
which have not participated in the gen
eral war are sincerely friendly and es
pecially with our neighbor, Bulgaria."
The Sultan made a brief reference to
the abrogation of the capitulations and
in giving tho cause for this step said:
"The special privileges which our gov
ernment has heretofore granted for
eigners had assumed a shape detri
mental to our rights of sovereignty."
WOMAN'S TERRIBLE TALES
OF ESCAPE FROM BELGIUM
Washington, Dec. 15. —Graphic de

lady of Belgium to her uncle in this
country made public by James White

Relief Fund. The letter says in part:
"I had to escape on foot from our
chateau on the banks of the Meuse
which was bombarded by the enemy.
After a terrible journey we have found
a refuge in England where we await
the end of this terrible war. We were
joined here by Mr. X. who arrived by
one of the last boats to leave Ostend.
Twenty thousand persons fleeing from
the Prussians were crushed together,
trying to board the last boats. Panics
and frightful rushes took place. He
saw children crushed, women killed and
men falling into the water. The Bel
gians have shown wonderful valour
and courage but the whole of Belgium
is in ruins; not a corner has escaped;
there is not a family which is not in
mourning and in tears. Tho city of

GERMAN CRUISER GIVEN 24
HOURS TO LEAVE OR INTERNE
Washington, Dec. 15. —Arrival of
the German converted yruiser Cormor
an in the harbor of (tuani, an American
possession in the Ladrone Archipelago,
was officially reported to the Navy De
partment to-day by the commandant of
the naval station there. It is pre
sumed the German vessel sought the
Guam harbor to interne during the war.
The Cormoran has been given 24
hours from 10 a. m. yesterday in which
to leave the port or interne for the
war. She was short of coal, provisions
The Cormoran needed 1,500 tons of
coal to reach the nearest German port
according to Captain W. J. Maxwell,
naval governor of Guam. She was of
fered 100 tons of coal and fresh water
and her captain was given until 10 a.
ill. to-day (Guam time) to decide what
his future course would be. Secretary
Daniels has approved Captain Max
well's action and has instructed him
not to allow the vessel more coal and
provisions than can be properly spared.
Naval officers here believe "the Cor
moran, although described as a convert
ed cruiser, is really the unprotected
cruiser of that name, a sister ship of
the (icier, interned at Honolulu several
weeks ago. Mystery has surrounded
the whereabouts of the ship for several
weeks. She was known to have been
before Kiachow during the early part
of the war when the Japanese attacked
that port and later was reported sunk
in Oriental waters.
