1ve3 a description of relations of
Wilson and Bryan and the incidents
that led up to their present posi positions

been printed on that line lately.
"I have been pestering my erudi erudition

drawn on my knowledge of ancient
and modern history and all without

lrat no one of them precisely fits the
case. Here is Bryan, three times
commander of the democratic squad,
serving as subordinate to a man who
never supported him.
"Mr. Bryan is a great. big man. I
did not realize it until January,
1912. At- the Shoreham hotel in this
town January 8 of that year the
members of the democratic national
committee met to select a place and
a time for the national convention.
All the daughters of Moab in the
democratic party, especially 'the
yallers,' and all the children of the
Philistines in that party, especially
the protectionists, were agin Wood Wood-row

mighty heap of contemptible vanity.
Hating Bryan as the devil hates holy

Wilson would be a cruel reflection on
him that would divorce him from the
political business. In their rancor

in their cause a man for whom they
had less tolerance than they had for

Derhaps it was not. Greeks bear

war with Mexico. The national debt
would have been increased hundreds
"We escaped that calamity. For
that blessing we owe more to Mr.
Bryan than to any other. After Mr.
Wilson's election the Moabites swore
that it was unthinkable that Mr.
Bryan, in light of the Joline letter,
could enter the cabinet; but he did,
and after nearly a year of daily as association
sociation association with him here is what
Woodrow Wilson thinks of the sec secretary

" 'Your reference to the secretary
of state shows how comprehensively
you have looked on during the last
few months. Not only have Mr.
Bryan's character, his justice, his
sincerity, his transparent integrity,
his Christian principle, made a deep
impression upon all with whom he
has dealt, but his tact in dealing
with men of many sorts,, his capacity
for business, his mastery of the prin principles
ciples principles of each matter he has been
called upon to deal with, have clear
ed away many a difficulty and have
given to the policy of the state de department

that are very admirable. I need not
say what pleasure and profit I, my myself,
self, myself, have taken from close associa association
tion association with Mr. Bryan or how thor thoroughly
oughly thoroughly he has seemed to all of us
who are associated with him here to
deserve not only our confidence but
our 'affectionate admiration.'
"Wilson was told that if he put.
Bryan at the head of his cabinet the
administration would be wrecked.
Miles and miles of stuff to that effect
was writ in papers that sincerely
thought themselves democratic. The
republican press consulted lawyers
and hoped to get out injunctions re
straining- the president from naming
Mr. Bryan secretary of state, so
afraid they were of alliance between
Wilson and Bryan.
"Well, we have a president who
knows more than anybody else. He
has pronounced views about matters
and things, and let me 'tell you, it is
impossible to fool this man Wilson.

The opening of the public art gal gallery

to every part of the city. It is the
result of a suggestion made by Pat Patrick

buildings as centers art, with its up uplifting
lifting uplifting influence, could be brought
more easily within the reach of the
masses. That the new gallery, which,
by the way, is the first municipal art
gallery, will be a great success seems
assured. If others were to be estab established

vate private galleries would be glad to offer
works of art enough to keep them all
constantly supplied with exhibitions.
The private collections in this city
contain treasures which otherwise
might never be placed on public view.
This innovation is in line with the
people's demand that school buildings
be used more widely than only during
school hours. It Is added evidence
of the approach of the time when our
school buildings will be civic, art and

DETERMINE COURSE OF SUN
Scientists Give Great Luminary 400, 400,-OCO
OCO 400,-OCO Years to Reach Apex That
It is Making For.
In according with the recognition
of two independent streams or drifts
of stars, and the discovery that the
sun belongs to one of them, a revision
became necessary of the determina
tion of the path of the sun In space.
L'Abbe Moreux sums up in Scientia
the recent work which has been done
in ascertaining what is called the
solar apex, beginning with that of
Professor Kopold of Kiel, who was
the first to bring to light in 1908 the
systematic error which has been in introduced
troduced introduced In all previous determina determinations
tions determinations of this point.
It is clear that this error might be become
come become considerable if while the sun
were moving toward the apex of its
own path t were also part of a swarm
of stars moving with it. The rede redetermination
termination redetermination of the direction of the
sun's path among the stars has been
accompanied by a new investigation
of the speed at which the solar sys system
tem system move3 in space. The new inves investigation,
tigation, investigation, which has only been under undertaken
taken undertaken systematically since the begin beginning
ning beginning of the century, depends for its
results on the application of the prin principle
ciple principle that the wave length of a ray
of light must alter according as the
source of light is moving toward or
away from the observer. To apply
it to the particular problem before us
it becomes necessary to compare the
radial movements of a large number
of stars situated in the direction fol followed
lowed followed by the sun with the radial
movements of the stars which the
solar system is leaving behind.
Movements of approach would be
in the majority in the first case;
movements of departure would be
dominant in the second. By striking
a mean, relatively to the movements
of the stars employed In the calcu calculation,
lation, calculation, the speed of movement of the
solar system might be arrived at.
When all the new determinations are
correlated the following seem to be
the results which embody the sun of
observations up to the present time:
That the sun is being carried in the
direction of the constellation of
Lyra, probably aiming at a point in
the neighborhood of the star Vega,
and alittle to the south of it; and that
