The Planets in July.
Jupiter is the evening star, and, ns
usual, during the month after opposi
tion, is most favorably situated (or
observation. He will rise before sun
set to-day, and a glance at the south
western sky will reveal his presence
as soon as the twilight begins to fade.
At the close of the month he has so
far advanced on his course toward the
sun that he is on the meridian soon
after 9 o’clock. He is very brilliant
in spite of the great southern declina
tion. Jupiter sets on the 1st at 1 a.
m. On the 31st he sets at 1:17 a. m.
His diameter on the first is 4-1.9, and
he is in the constellation Sagittarius.
Venus is the morning star, and
reaches her greatest western elonga
tion, or greater distance west of the
sun, on the 10th. at 4 a. m. being
then 45° 44' west of the sun. After
elongation she retraces her steps to
ward the sun, her brilliancy slowly
decreasing as she recedes from the
earth. She will be a charming ob
ject in thj morning sky throughout
the midsummer month, especially on
the morning of the 23d, when ap
proaching conjunction with the wan
ing moou. Venus rises on the 1st at
1:50 n. m. On the 31st she rises at
1:37 a. m. Her diameter on the 1st
is 26” .4; and she is in the constella
Mercury is morning star. He
reaches his greatest western elongation
on the 12th, at 5 a. m., and then, like
his more biilliant neighbor Venus
begins to retrace his steps toward the
sun. At elongation he is 20° 47'
west of the san, and favorably situat
ed for observation with the unaided
eye, on account of his high northern
declination. Mercury rises on the
1st at 3:39 a. m. On the 31st he
rises at 4:17 a. m. His diameter on
the 1st i6 10' 0, and he is in the con
Saturn is the evening star. He is
so near the sun as he approaches con
junction that he will soon he hidden
in the sunlight, setting less than an
hour after the sun on the last day of
the month. . He is visible in the ear
ly part of the month in the north
west, moving eastward and slowly
approaching Regulus.' Saturn sets on
the 1st at 9:41 p. m. On the 31st he
sets at 7:52. His diameter on the
1st is 15'.m, and he is in the constella
Mars is morning star, and makes
seemingly little progress in his ap
proach toward our planet. He rises
on the 1st at 4:11 a. m. On the 31st
he rises at 3:47 a. m. His diameter
on the 1st is 40'.0, and he is in the
Uranus is evening star. He is in
quadrature with the sun on July 9 nt
8 p. m. He is in good position for
telescopic observation, and may lie
easily found on nccount of his near
approach to Spica. Uranus sets on
the 1st at midnight. On the 31st lie
sets at 10:03 p. m. His diameter on
the 1st is 3'.6, and he is the constella
Neptune is morning star. He
rises on the 1st at 2:11 a. m. On the
31st lie rises at 0 h. 15' a. m. His
diameter on the 1st is 2'.5, and lie is
in constellatian Tarus,
Mercury, Mars, Venus and Nep
tune are morning stars at the close of
the month. Jupiter, Uranus and
Saturn arc evening stars.—News.
Here is a timely bit of advice: Do
nob forget to give baby (no matter
how young) a drink of water now and
then. Some mothers never think of
doiDg this, and all the time the poor
little thing is actually suffering for
tho want oi water. Just a few drops
in a spoon will do at first; nothing will
satisfy a child until it gets it. Some
years ago I heard of a case where the
child was sick. The mother sent for
the doctor. He came, and after exam
ining it carefully said: “The child is
dying for the lack of water. Bring me
some and I’ll show you.” The result
proved that he was right. All the
mother 6aid was: ‘T didu’t know ba
bies needed water.”

tho result is a collision, whether "coming
thro* tho rye,” or not. Life is full of collis
ions. Wo are constantly colliding with some
body or something. If it Isn’t with our
neighbors it is with some dread disease’s that
" knocks us off the track ” and perhaps dis
ables us for life. Women especially it seems,
have to bear the brunt of more collisions anu
afflictions than mankind. In nil cases of
