Aurora boreal is a Beautiful Aurora boreal is was visible on sunday night for several hours. The whole brilliantly illuminated with commenting Light of Many colors Crimson and purple predominating. Streams of Light ascended front All Points of the horizon and met at the Zenith in the form of a canopy where they assumed the most fantastic shapes. A More Beauty tul sight could not be imagined. This mysterious Light Lias Ever puzzled natural philosophers Olio have advanced the most contradictory Explana-1 tons for the Phenomena. Some have ascribed 1 them to the refraction. Of the suns rays from.

A Tho lie Ait if not Tho reason of thousands of children is annually destroyed in Otto country from excessive application. Parents and teach pm Are equally criminal in forcing when they should repress the too Early developed passion for study. It is too a question of serious moment whether the confinement of very Young children for six or eight hours a Day.
