The Israelites, at the height of their
glory and prosperity were abundantly
supplied with money. The same may
be said subsequently ot tireece and
Rome. The. arts, sciences, learning
and industries flourished then as never
before. "The historof the Roman
Empire is a history of conquest and
the accumulation of gold aud silver."
A careful historian estimates the mon

How to Keep Furniture in Order.
There are a great many careless peo
ple where furniture is concerned. Yet
good furniture is really not cheap, but
if properly cared for, it will last a long
time. In sweeping a room, the furni
ture should be covered up with cloths
before the sweeping commences. She
is, indeed, a careless housekeeper who
will allow the dust to be swept over
the furniture, to make its way into the
cloth coverings, there to stay for it is
almost impossible to dislodge it. Many

Those who look upon the moon nigh
after night and year after year see no
change in the face she presents. The
Man in the Moon" is always the same,
item and immovable, he looks upon the
earth as he has done for ages past, and
as he will do for ages to come.
The reason for this unchangeable as
pect is that-we see only on one side of
the moon; aud the- reason why we see
but one side is that, whlie she makes one
revolution round the earth, she turns
once on her axes. The moon's day or
period of rotation is, therefore, t he same
as her revolution, about twenty-seven
This is the present condition of affairs
m regard to the earth and moon. The
ruriu turns on ner axis once in twenty
four ours. The moon turns on her ax
is once in t wenty-seveti days. If t here
are inhabitants on the side of the moon
turned toward ns, they can see, at dif
ferent times, every' part of the earth's
She shines in their sky as a glorious
orb, thirteen times as large as the moon
in our sky, aud exhibitssirailar phases;
while her surfaces is marked with spots
shaped like the continents and islands
familiary to our terrestrial m ips.
The conditions prevailing in t he earth
moon system have greatly changed in
the lapse of ages; and will greatly change
in ages to come. Long ago,. when the
moon was young, her fires first burned,
she may have rotated on her axis in
three or four hours. The earth then
raised enormous tides upon her plastic
surface. Tides act as brakes retarding
axial rotation, and by this means the
moon's time of rotation has gradually in
creased until it has reached its present
length of twenty-seven days.
The earth. "too, in her primeval con
union turned on ner axis much more
rapidly than at present. The moon
raises tides upon the earth, and these in
their turn have. reduced-the velocity of
her rotation until our day is "now
twenty-four hours long.
As time rolls on, the earth will
volve on its axis more and more slowly,
until after the lapse of millions of
years, the -earth's day and the moon's
will be equal. When that time comes,
the earth -will present always the same
side to the moon, and d we! lei's on the
other side will nearer see the moon, un
less they make a journey for the pur
pose. The hands on the dial plate of time
move slowly, but none less surely. To
day is longer than yesterday, although
the aifference is so intiuitesimal that
the most accurate mathematicians have
been unable to measure it.
Iu fact, the period of. the earth's ro-
tatiou haji not varied one huudreth of a
second in two thousand years. But
when two thousand years shall have
pitssed the change will be not only per
