It is nu intoriiatioiuil at- fiur; for no one- country could carry through such a gig-antic tusk. The h-.-n.vens have beeu in:i|ipc*d out iu sections, u section beinff (uwigncu to each of the principal obsvrvntories iij the world; nnd caeh of these IS observatories must furnish a map of iu ixu- tieukir section in ',500 purta. To do this 3,000 photographs "nave been taken at each observatory, making 1 u grand total of 54,000 photographs. The United States Is not represented in t-Uo international congress for the <iou- etruction o£ this map. Prof. Pickering, of Harvard, wished to undertake a share of the work, but it was llnally decided that the great amount of time required Cor the allotted section would interfere with the genera.! work of the Cambridge observatories. The Yai'kes observatory was not, of coarse, ready at the time, aud the others did not care to lay out the money for the necessary instruments. The'obscrvatorics rfiav- ing the work ore those of Greenwich, Home, Catanc, Hnlsinpford, I'otsdnn), Oxford, Paris, Bordeaux, Totilo\ise, Algeria, SOD Fernando, Tacubaya, Siu:- 1.tag-o (Chili), 3'-a Plata, Jlio Oe .Tnnciro, Cape ot Good Hope, Sidney ;uid Jlel- bour/ie. The map will be in totiil area nearly twoncrcs.butmustncccssnrilybe divided up into a manageable size. 1'or ench hemisphere there will be 11,000 little maps, or S2.000 for the whole sidereal universe. Upon it will be shown nbout 30,000,OCO of stars. O.f Uiese ^,000,000 will be catalogued nnd miinheTeil, so that any star up to the HtJi magnitude can be located as easily as an isJnnd iu the map of tht- world. The (stars actually shown upon the map will be all those up to the 14th mng-ni- meniTonsi Hut. the mnp, when' 'com-; plcK'd, will bo of Inestimable value to astronomer:;. The idea is to show Just what .-ispi.'ut- the !n.':i»'cr.s pi-esi.-nted ct the period represonted. Any uliurigi-'s' euliscqui'iit to tJiis pericid will be nt once detectml, nnd vnlunblc iiil'oi'nuition gained.

Stellar pholog-rnphs an: nl«-:iy.s used just as they comu from the camera, without',' uny retouching whatever. The number of sturs shown is proportionate to the length of exposure of the sensitive plate. At first it was intended to include 'stnrsof the 15lh magnitude in (lie mensiireraenrs, but. the tremendous ndditional labor involved caused the / congress to fix the limit at the- Hth magnitude.' Almost nntliing 1 is known of .stars which tire such on enormous distance away, nnd no mnp of record has ever been ninde of th-em. As mnttnrs stand nt present n few million.of them niifrlit disappear without astronomers being, nny tin 1 wiser. This gigantic mnp wns planned by the Paris observatory in 1SCG, nnd a proposition nmde to nil the big observatories to assist iu the work. Since thnt date the principal observatories nave "been busy on the bip scheme, which will certainly -be' the most wonderful thing 1 modern astronomy lias nccouijilishcd. FISHWORMS AND MUSIC.

The box in which hi; kept them covered the floor .of t.he old forcing house, nnd was built four feet, deep a.nd filled with soil to within IS inches of t-he top. During last spring nnd summer Crew- dye and his boys gnl.hered the festive THE "MAP OF THE SKY," AS IT MADISON tttde. 'A igreat number of tlie otars shown upon, the map cannot be seen by the human,eye, even with Uie aid of tbc most powerful telescope. The photographic plate, however, can detect m.iJiy millions of stars which no man has ever, seen. The long exposure necessary in order to get photographs of stars beyond the 14th magnitude renders the operation too difficult for the construction of a map. The most sensitive plute kno\vn would require some days exposure to take » picture of a star of the 13th or 19th magnitude, -and after all the photographs have been taken the hardest part of the work begins. The .measurements and exact position of each star have to It recorded, and to do this hundreds of astronomers have been working for years. , * Special apparatus was purchased by each observatory for the work. All the instruments must be similar in size nnd construction, or the photographs would not be alike. .The international con- gress.which was held at the Paris observatory eight years ago decided that a telescope mJst be constructed for each observatory engaged in the work. These telescopes ore till of 11 feet and a inches focal length, with nn object glass •13 inches iu diameter. To take a stellar photograph is not a very difficult task. The sitters do not 'have to look plensnnt, and the auto- mntic movement .of 'the telescope keeps the object always opposite the stars to be photographed. The delicate part of the task consisU in the accurate measuring and placing of .the stars shown upon the photographic plute. ,'Each .negative will ,be transferred.in duplicate ou"copper, and the'two plates will be kept in different observatories. This is. to obviate any, chance of accident, to the-plates, for if both were lost-, the damage would be alrooet irreparable. Some idea of the magnitude of the task undertaken may be gained from ..the fact that to reproduce the mnp from the plates will cost over $2,000,000.

It is sometimes thought that political rancor is-carried to an extreme point in our times, but it is nothing compared with what it was in the early flays of. the. republic. The intensity to which rancor of this kind was formerly carried is well illustrated by a libel suit which was once tried in Indiana. The alleged libd was that the defendant had called the plaintiff "an old federalist," by.the publication of which "false, scandalous nnd defnmatory libel," so the declaration ulleged, "the plaint! IT has been brought into public disgrace, nnd his neighbors have since refused to have any intercourse with him." The counsel for the defendant filed a, general demurrer to the declaration, insisting that it wa.s not actionable to call a mnn a federalist-, and that therefore the declaration did not .set forth a libel if proved. The court, how-, ever, submitted the whole matter to the jury! the members of which were to be the judges of the law as well as of the fact. The jury i™ 3 impnjieled wrth great difficulty, some scores of talesmen luyinir been set aside upon their affirmative answer to the question: "Have yon formed or expressed an opinion whether it is liiander to call a roan a federalist?" The first witness for the plaintiff was an old man named Herndon, reared in the woods of Kentucky, who had moved from the latter state to Indiana. Mr. Herndon testified as follows* ... ,. "Mr. Herndon, do you consioer it li- lieloiis u.nd slanderous .to call a:man a federalist?" "1 do." . "Which would you rather aman would (,,,.11 you—a federalist or n. horse-thief?" "I wcnild shoot him if he called me o::e or t-he other." "You have not answered the question." "I would rather be called anything under the heavens than a. federalist." . "What damage would you sn.y that the d-fendnnt should pay for this libel ir, enllino-Uie plaintiff a-federalist.?" "I would say 51.000 at least." The counsel for' the defendant then 1( .]. oss -examined Mr. ITeriidon n<* . fol- "Mr. TTerndofi, whnt. do you under- Bfriil !iy "• federalist?" "My iinOcrstandina 1 is that It meons .n tory— an enemy to his country." "Is that the common acceptation of Uifctirm?" - -'• ~'" ' ' "Yrs: I have never heard nny other from the.first.settl-ricnt* In Kentucky 'up toth<??)re8onttimc." On the redirect examination Mr. TIerr.dnn wns nskerl only a single question: "Mr. Herndon. would y°<tefr*' «nfe with n federalist by your fn<l«rto r-icrt the Tmlinns ir; n bush-fight?" "I would not;-.I,would, just• as. soon hnv'e, one of the hostile Indians, with his riflr'aml tonuha.wk, by my side." Th« counsel, for the plaintiff said thnt he lind S9 other witnesses whom he w^s ready to examine; but, to save time, it was agreed by the counsel on. both sides thnt eacli of the 29 would swear to the same effect as Mr. Hern-:, don. and that the publication of the libel was admitted. After lengthy and 1 sible arguments, the case was given to 1he jury, which, soon brought in" tfi« following verdict: "We find that to charge a man with being a fedei-aliBt is libelbus.'and we assess (he damaje« of the plaintiff at $1.000;" whereupon (Tie Judge observed: "The cotirt arc well satisfied with your verdict, gentlemen." —Boston Transcript.
