Sunrise of th* Aen Century.
From Pearson's Magaxlne.
If the change of the centuries took
place at either of the equinoxes— Maren
27 or Sept. 22—then, alnca on those days
the earth's axta ta at right anglea to tho
plqne of the orbit, and there la equal day
and night ail over the world, the matter
would be very easily •tortded. The down
line would coincide with the date-line, and
from pole to pole the first nun of the new
century woirkl rise at the same momen-
But unfortunately this Is not so. and
the consequence Is that the line of daw i,
a* It sweep# round the earth, that touches
the date-line to the south of th* equator,
and then gradually creeps up this line till
it leaves It far to the north. Bo the first
• tin of the twentieth century will rise on
the places along or near the dpte-Une Iti
the order of their position from the south
Now there la no land along Mils lino
from the antarctic circle to Antipodes
Island, hence Hits tiny spot of earth will
flrst eee the twentieth century dawn. A
few minute* later Bounty Island trill see
It. Then It will sweep along the north***!.
• oast of North itlgtid. New Zca lands then
over Vacua Levu In the FIJI lalunda.
Next It will shine on the scattered coral
islets of th# Ellice group, and after travel
ing about degrees more to the north Jhe
ltg 04-tide will touch the crossing of the
dawn-line and date-Mnn at ( o'clock.
Two hour# and five minutes will have to
posa befora It reaches the banks of th"
Yana. In six hour* and twenty-flv* min
utes tt will gild th* temples and palaces
o' Calcutta, In nine hour* and fifty min
ute* It will be flowing over Idon'a Head
and down the rugged atdm of Table Moun
tain. In twelve hours and twenty-Avr,
minute* |t will have crossed Montmartre
and touched the base of Eiffel Tower Id
Paris Five minute* later It will have
passed the cross of Mt. Paul's amt be
flowing up Fleet street. In seventeen
hours and twenty minutes from the tlnv*
It crossed tha dawn-line It will be tlow-
I lag round -the feet of ha Statue of Lt
herty and in three hours more It will have
reached the Golden Gate. Thence It win
cross a stretch of ocean upbroken by rock
or islet hack to the dawiDllne. and so will
be accomplish*,] toe evening and morning
of the flan day of the twantleth century.
