Delay in golar Eclipse.
There was a delay of about five sec
onds in the solar ecilpse of the sun
last January. Astronomers hare been
trying to find out what caused it.
They think it is a reflection upon
thgir science to make such a tremend
ous error 1
Prof. E. W. Drown, of Yale Uni
Valleys of- the moon were in part re
sponsible for the error in calculation.
In a leeture Prof. Brown decently ex
plained that a,mountain on the moon’s
surface, obstructing th(r- sun’s rays,
would account for a delay ot from one
to three seconds. Oh the other
hand, a large valley on the moon
would make the eclipse occur too
by permittings the cays of the
sun to shine through.
Other reasons for t'.ie miscalcula
tion also suggested. For in
stance. assorted Prof. Browh, the
earth is slowing down at the rate of
about 1-lO.OOOth of a second in a
'century. Besides, the width, of the
| shadow east during the eclipse last
I January indicates that the diameter
| of the moon is smaller than was sup
posed by astronomers.

A missionary leader says:
“We are more deeply grievted be
cause the chief causes that lie lat the
bottom of this outbreak of anti-Chris

the failure of Christian nations to
deal justly with China. Christianity
in China is bearing the burden of
wrong international relations with so

The ’'heathen” no longer take the
missionary’s word for the glories of
the Christian life. They are dis

commissions the effects of the “new
