against the probability of life there.
"Venus," he said, "is comparable to
the earth in many ways and if, as is
likely, living organisms develop
wherever conditions are suitable over
a sufficient interval of time, then it
may be considered that life on Venus
is highly probable. On no other
bodies in the solar system, however,
are conditions at all favorable for the
existence of ptotoplasm."
Dr. Shapley said that accepting the
tidal evolution theory of a planetary
system, even for stars otherwise fav favorably

the right sort with another star was
necessary for the birth of a planetary

that their life phenomena surpass in

A SCOUT IS HELPFUL
During a ferocious blizzard In Mason
City, Iowa, last winter an old gentle gentleman
man gentleman was so unfortunate as to lose his
glasses tn a gust of wind which carried
them to the street. Nearly blinded by
the storm and helpless without the
very equipment he sought, he fumbled
in vain in the snow when a boy scout
offered his aid. Seeing that the old
man was suffering from the cold the
boy insisted on his going into a build-
i ing to get warm while he continued
j the search. It was nearly an hour be be-j
j be-j fore the scout found the glasses and
! when he did he refused the proffered
tip. It was all in the day's work for

I had already marked that house as
the finest (to my taste) in Wainwright,
though hitherto, on my excursions to
this metropolis, the state capital, I was
not without a certain native jealousy
that Spencerville, the county-seat
where I lived, had nothing so good.
Now, however, I approached its pur purlieus

lived there part of my possessions as
a citizen. Moreover, I might enjoy the
warmer pride of a next-door-neighbor,
for Mrs. Apperthwaite's, where I had
taken a room, was just beyond.
This was the quietest part of Wain Wainwright;
wright; Wainwright; business stopped short of It,
and the "fashionable residence sec section"
tion" section" had overleaped this "forgotten
backwater," leaving It undisturbed and
unchanging, with that look about It
which is the quality of few urban
quarters, and eventually of none, as a
town grows to be a city the look of
still being a neighborhood. This friend friendliness
liness friendliness of appearance was largely the
emanation of the homely and beauti beautiful
ful beautiful house which so greatly pleased my
It might be difficult to say why I
thought it the "finest" house in Wain Wainwright,
wright, Wainwright, for a simpler structure would
be hard to imagine; it was merely a
big, old-fashioned brick house, painted
brown and very plain, set well away
from the street among some splendid
forest trees, with a fair spread of flat
lawn. But It gave back a great deal
for your glance, just as some people
do. It was a large house, as I say, j et
it looked not like a mansion but like
a home; and made you wish that you
lived in it. Or, driving by, of an eve evening,
ning, evening, you would have liked to stop
your car and go in ; it spoke so sure surely
ly surely of hearty, old-fashioned people liv living
ing living there, who would welcome you
It looked like a house where there
were a grandfather and a grand grandmother;
mother; grandmother; where holidays were warmly
kept ; where there were boisterous
family reunions to which uncles and
aunts, who had been born there, would
return from no matter what distances;
a house where big turkeys would be
on the table often ; where one called
"the hired man," (and named either
Abner or Ole) would crack walnuts
upon a flatiron clutched between his
knees on the back porch; it looked
like a house where they played cha charades;
rades; charades; where there would be long
streamers off evergreen and dozens of
wreaths of holly at Christmas time;
where there were tearful, happy wed weddings
dings weddings and great throwings of rice after
little brides, from the broad front
steps: In a word, It was the sort of a
house to make the hearts of spinsters
and bachelors very lonely and wist wistful
ful wistful and that Is about as near- as I can
come to my reason for thinking It the
finest house in Wainwright.
The moon hung kindly above Its
level door in the silence of that Oc October

to loiter along the picket fwice; but
suddenly the house showed a light of
Its own. The spurt of a match took
my eye to one of the upper winiows,
then a steadier glow of orange told
me that a lamp was lighted. The win window

He leaned from the window, looking
downward. "Why, there you are!" he
exclaimed, and turned to address some
invisible person within the room. "He's

out again. "Wait there, Simpledoria I"

To be sure, it was all In the telling;
and what would Troy have been with without

will leave It In a daze of meditation
upon things more real to him than the
actual things he has seen and touched.
In visiting the mins of Troy, one
sets out from the village of Darda Dardanelles

After a couple of hours' travel
through the plain the road grows
rougher and begins to ascend into hilly
country. The traveler realizes that he
should be nearing historic ground
now and he glances around the horizon
to- see If he can identify Mt. Ida, and
toward the sea for a first sight of
Tenedos; but no, this Is only common
soil. Rounding the summit of the next
rise one sees the road leading down
into Eren Koul, a Turkish village, a
convenient halting place for coffee.
Then the road begins to wind through
the village In a gradual descent until
It makes a sudden Jerky little turn
into the open country, and behold the
plain of Troy ; not the plain of the his historic
toric historic action, but the drainage area
which includes Troy.
To the Hill of Ilium.
The road leads straight toward a
ridge In the distance, "the Hill of
Ulum," at the lower point of which
will presently appear the ruins. It
was down that Identical ridge, or so
one tells oneself that the angry god,
Apollo, strode toward vengeance,
while the arrows In the quiver on his
shoulder clanged In ominous music.
Yonder the summit of Jit. Ida, where
the gods In solemn conclave so often
sat. Away over there, skirting the
ridge of Ilium, Is Slmois' stream, or
should be; but the bridge across it
shows upon approach that modern
Slmois is no more than a creek. Worse
than that; following Its attenuated
course, less than a mile downstream,
one discovers that It ends In a morass
instead of Joining the Scamander as of
yore. And the latter stream Is scarce scarcely

dignified in size or appearance. In
fact, their sluggish currents united can
scarcely boast of bankj except at oc occasional

are now only broad swales merging

which it rises about 30 feet. The ridge

these never troubled Homer, so why
bother about them.
Unearthed by Schiierruuin.
Every student knows of the remark remarkable
able remarkable work of Schliemann in unearthing
these ruins and establishing their
identity as those of the veritable Troy
of Homer; of the indefatigable zeal,
the determined search for the location,
the half-willing consent of the Turkish
government, and the financial and
physical obstacles to be overcome. But
the work did begin at last, and the
first walls to appear beneath the spade
were strange walls, not those de described
scribed described by Homer, and the order was
to dig deeper. Still further ruins of
city after city were unearthed, till

Only the antiquarian can see the
significance of all these things as he
scrambles up and down within and
among these disordered plies of what
once was masonry ; but even an unin uninformed
formed uninformed tourist can see the difference
between the rubble walls of a later
date and the worthier structures
which preceded them.
There are walls, too, which show the
marks of a mighty conflagration, and
these, It Is opined, are the same

gap in the wall through which the
wooden horse was introduced, but h
looks In vain. Earthenware cisterns
of some 20 gallons capacity, for hold holding
ing holding oil or wine, were built into the
walls, while bits of iridescent glass,
pieces of pottery, cobblestones and
clay were filled In around them.
Wall of Priam Still Stands.
But there is still left one precious
bit of Homeric architecture, If the
archaeologists are correct, raising its
crown as high as any of the walls of
subsequent date. It is part of a bas
tion facing toward the Hill of Ulum
and known as the "Wall of Priam." It
was meant to stand throughout the
ages, whoever was Its builder, and
one ardently wishes to give the credit
for its construction to those times. It
is a noble wall, well pointed, well
laid, well preserved, capable yet of
withstanding such assaults as when
"AJax strives some stone's vast
weight to throw."
From its corner overlooking the
plain of Simois an outside stairway
descends toward the river, possibly a
later feature. Could this have been th
