This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

KEY TO PRONUNCIATION 



Three methods are used to indicate the pronunciation of the 
5;fords forming the headings of the separate articles : 

(1) By dividing the word into syllables, and indicating the 
syllable or syllables to be accented. This method is followed where 
the pronunciation is entirely obvious. Where accent mark) are 
omitted, the omission indicates that all syllables are given sub- 
stantially the same value. 

(2) Where the pronunciation differs from the spelling, the 
word is re-spelled phonetically, in addition to the accentuation. 

(3) Where the sound values of the vowels are not sufficiently 
indicated merely by an attempt at phonetic spelling, the following 
system of diacritical marks is additionally employed to approximate 
the proper sounds as closely as may be done : 



ft, a8 in fate, or in bare. 

ft, as in oima, Fr. ^me, Ger. Bahn=ft 

of Indian names 
ft, the same sound short or medium, as 

in Fr. bal, Ger. Mann, 
a, as in fat. 
A, afl in fall. 
a, obscure, as in rural, similar to u in 

bti^, ^ in her: common in Indian 

names. 
A, as in me=t in machine. 
e, as in met. 
^, as in her. 

I, as in p<ne, or as e» in Ger. Metn. 
i, as in ptn, also used for the short 

sound corresponding to 6, as in 

French and Italian words. 



eu, a long sound as in Fr. je^ne, = 
Ger. long 6, as in Sdhne, G^a 
(Goethe). 

eu, correspondiuff sound short or medi- 
um, as in Fr. pew = Ger. 6 short. 

5, as in note, moan. 

o^ as in not, frog — that is, short or 
medium. 

0, as in move, two. 

tl, as in tube. 

u, as in t«b : similar to ^ and also to a. 

n, as in bull. 

U, as in So abfine=Fr. ^ as in dH, 
Ger. U long as in ffrun, Bfihne. 

ft, the corresponding short or medium 
sound, as in Fr. b«t, Ger. Mailer. 

oi, as in oil. 

ou, as in pound ; or as au in Ger. Haas. 



The consonants, b, d, f, h, j, k, 1, m, n, ng, p, sh, t, v, and z, when 
printed m Roman type, are always given their common English 
values in the transliteration of foreign words. The letter c is indi- 
cated by s or k, as the case may be. For the remaining consonant 
sounds the following ssonbols are employed : 



ch is always as in ric^. 

d, nearly as th in thla = Sp. d in 

Matfrid, eta 
f is always hard, as in go. 
h represents the guttural in Scotch 

loc^, Ger. nac/T, also other c^milar 

gutturals. 
9, Fr. nasal n as in bon. 
r represents both Eo/slish r, and r in 

foreign words, in which it is gen- 



erally much more strongly trilled, 
s, always as in so, 
th, as th in iAin. 
th, as th in thiB. 
w always consonantal, as in ire. 
z = ks, which are used instead, 
y always consonantal, as in yea (Fr. 

Ugne would be re- writ ten Itoy). 
zh, as « in pleasure = Fr. i.

Symbols and Occurrence of the Ele- 
ments. — ^The gjrmbols for the elements 
known to the ancients and to the alche- 
mists, were derived from the Latin word 
for the element by combining the first 
letter of the Latin word with another let- 
ter of the same word. Thus the symbol 
for iron, Fe, came from the Latin word 
fermm; Pb, the symbol for lead, simi- 
larly was derived from plumbum. The 
symbols of the elements discovered in more 
recent times almost invariably owe their 
origin to the first letter and sometimes one 
other letter of the English word for the 
element. Hie names of the elements them- 
selves come from many different sources. 



The names of the elements known to the 
ancients are veiled in the obscurity of cen- 
turies; the more recently discovered ele- 
ments frequently take their names from 
some striking property of Uie element. 
Oxygen, for example, means acid-forming, 
while chromium is an adaptation of the 
Greek word colored. Other dements are 
named after the locality in which they 
were first found, such as yttria. A few 
elements are named after mytholo^cal 
characters, as vanadium and thorium. 
Of the eighty-three elements known onlv 
eight are found in the earth's crust in rel- 
atively large amounts. Oxygen is bv far 
the most common; it constitutes almost 
one-half of the earth's crust. Bv weight 
one-fifth of the air is oxygen, ana oxygen 
constitutes about 89 per cent by weight 
of water. Next to oxygen in the order of 
their relative amounts found in the earth's 
crust are silicon, aluminum, iron^ calcium, 
potassium, sodium, and magnesium. All 
the other elements are found in amounts 
which are expressed in fractions of a per 
cent of the total material present. 

Valency and Latos of Combination, — 
The elements are divided into two classes, 
the metals and the non-metals. Metals 
form what chemists call bases, while non- 
metals are acid-forming. Both groups of 
elements enter into salts. Dalton early 
formulated the laws according to which 
these two classes of the elements entered 
into chemical combination ; the proportion 
by weight of the combining elements is al- 
ways unvarying in the same compound, 
and if two elements formed a series of 
compounds the combining proportions are 
simple multiples of the lowest ratio. To 
illustrate the last law we have S2 parts 
by weight of sulphur combining with 32 
parts by weight of oxygen to form sulphur 
dioxide; but in another compound of sul- 
phur and oxygen, 32 parts of the former 
unite with 48 parts of the latter. Thus 
the ratio of the oxygen in its two sulphur 
compounds is as 32 to 48 or 2 as to 3. 
The sum of the dements forming a chem- 
ical compound always equals the weight 
of the compound itself. Chemistry as an 
exact science is based upon these laws of 
combination. The joining of atoms to

caUed chemical afiinity. The degree of 
chemical afSnitf varies widely with the 
atoms of the different elements: oxygen 
combines with all of the elements except 
fiuorine and the inert gases of the atmos- 
phere, while the latter combine with no 
elements whatsoever. A list of the inert 
gases is in group ' O ' of Mendeleeff*s table

CUuHficaiion of the Elements, — ^Prob- 
ably the greatest single contribution for 
the systematizing of chemistry was made 
by Mendeleeff in 1869. In that year Men- 
deleeff published the following table: 



therefore called this the law of octaves. 
As shown in the table each main group is 
subdivided into two parts, A and B. 
Li, Na, K, Rb, and Gs are somewhat more 
closely associated in chemical characteris- 
tics than Gu, Ag, and Au, Adjoining 
groups as I and II more nearly resemble 
each other than those widely separated. 
Group I is made up entirely or metak 
while group II is composed of strong 
non-metals. The blanks in the table in- 
dicate the places of elements which will 
probably be discovered eventually. The 
table possesses shortcomings such as the 
irregular groupings of the elements of the 
eighth column, the reversed positions of 
nickel and cobalt and of tellurium and 
iodine ; the lack of a place for hydrogen.

Mendeleeff observed that when the ele- 
ments were arranged in the order of the 
magnitude of their atomic weights, groups 
of them were formed by taking all which 
were separated by six elements. The ele- 
ments In these groups possessed very 
similar chemical and phvsical properties. 
Thus beginning with lithium, Li, in the 
above table, there follow six other elements, 
glucinum, boron, carbon, nitrogen^ oxygen, 
and fluorine. We then have sodium, Na, 
which has almost identical properties with 
lithium. Similarly in the same group, 
group I, each member in the order of atomic 
weignts is separated bv six other elements. 
Gounting as one the element chosen. Men- 
ddeeff stated that the eighth element 
repeated the properties of the first; he 



All these defects of Mendeleeff's table are 
eliminated in a table published by Moseley 
in 1914, which he called a table of atomic 
numbers. The weights for the various 
elements in this table were obtained by 
measuring the wave lengths of the rays 
which each element emitted when used as 
the anode of an X-ray bulb.

was cuniideted a descendant of the

inemberB. The chief exercised his antbor- 
it; b; right of primogeniture, aa the 
father of nia clan ; the clansmen revered 
and BCTved the chief with the blind devo- 
tion of children. The clang each occupied 
a certain portion of the country, and 
hostilities with neighboring clans were ei- 
tremely common. Next in rank to tbe 
chief were a certain number of persons, 
commonly near relations of tbe chief, to 
whom portions of land were aasij|ned

chiefs was not very accurately defined, 
and It waa necessary to consult, in some 
— ftsure, the opinions of the most in- 
>ntisl clansmen and the general wishes 
of tbe whole body. It was latterly the 
policy of tbe government in Scotland to 
oblige the clans to find a representative 
of rank to become security at court for 
their good behavior : the dans wbo conld 
not procure a suitable representative, or 
wbo were unwilling to do so, were called 
broken clans, and existed in a sort of out- 
lawry. Tbe most notable instance of

of the ancient clan MacGregor. who laat

contested between Huyghens and the 
English philosopher Dr. Hooke. Vari- 
oas improvements followed, such as the 
chronometer escapement, and the addi- 
tion of a compensation adjustment, by 
which two metals having unequal rates 
of expansion and contraction under vari- 
ations of temperature are combined in 
the pendulum or the balance-wheel, so 
that, each metal counteracting the other, 
the vibrations are isochronous under 
any change of temperature. This ar- 
rangement was perfected by Harrison in 
1728, and is especially useful in navi- 
gation. The accompanying cut shows

clock, and forms indeed a separate por-

and America some societies of physicians 
are called coUegea So, also, there are

Am applied to an educational institution 
the name is somewhat loosely used. The 
higher class of colleges are those in 
wmch the students engage in study for 
the purpose of taking a degree in arts, 
medicine, or other subjects, and are 
connected with, or have more or less the 
character of uniyersitlea The early 
Ustory of these institudons is some- 
what obscure: the probability is that 
they were originally founded in the vari- 
oQs uniTendnes of the middle ages, 
with similar objects and from the same 
charitable motives. Hotels or board- 
ing-houses were provided (principally by 
the religious orders, for toe benefit of 
those of their own fraternity), in which 
the scholars lived unde** a certein super- 
intendence, and the endowment of these 
liostels by charitable persons for the sup- 
port of poor scholars completed the 
foundation of a college. Out of this has 
developed the modem Bnglish college as 
seen at Oxford and Cambridge, where 
each college, though a member or compo- 
nent part of the university, is a sepa- 
rate establishment whose fdlows, tutors, 
and students live together under a par- 
ticnlar head, called iiMwter, pHnoipol, 
«Mn<eii, etc., of the college. In the 
United States and Qermany the college 
Is practically one with the university,

Besides the very interesting Halley 
comet, which, true to the period assigned 
to it, re-appeared in 1910, the most im- 
portant recent comet appearances have 
been that known as Pons-Brooks, which 
made its re-appearance in 1884 and has a 

geriodicity of about seventy-one and one- 
alf years, or about five years less than 
Halley's; the Westphal, which last ap- 
peared in 1913, with a period of slightlv 
over sixty-one years ; the Olbers, in 1887. 
its period being about seventy-two and 
one-half years. Those four are of what is 
called the Neptune 'family,' and describe 
elliptic orbits. Besides the Biela comet, 
whose re-appearance occurred last in 1852, 
but which has failed to aopear according 
to the periodicity established, another 
comet, known as the Brorson, seems to 
have Wn lost. It last appeared in 1879 
and has been looked for in vain since that 
year. It is suggested that in 1880 its or- 
bit intersected that of Denning II near 
the orbit of Juj^iter and that it underwent 
such perturbation as materially to alter 
its orbit and period. Almost every year 
a number of short period comets are dis- 
covered. In April, 1916, Wolf discovered 
at Heidelberg a new comet with a periodi- 
city of nearly eight years; it reached its 
perihelion in June, 1917. Schaumasse's 
comet is another short-period comet, ap- 
pearing every six years. It was observed 
in 1913, within 90,000,000 miles of Jupi- 
ter; again at the end of 1919 it ap- 
proached within 120,000,000 miles of the 
earth. See DonaiVa and Bailey's Comets,

but in 1472 he passed into the service of 
Louis XI, who loaded him with marks of 
favor. After the death of Charles the 
Bold Louis took possession of the duchy 
of Burgundy, sent Commines there, and 
soon uter appointed him ambassador 
to Florence. He was afterwards sent by 
Ix>uis to BaToy, for the purpose of seiz-

placing him entirely under the guardian- 
ship of the king, his uncle. In 1483 
Louis XI died, and next year Commines 
attended Charles VIII in his inyasion of 
Italy, and served him in a diplomatic 
capacity. Soon after that date he began 
to write his Memoirs, valuable as con- 
tributions to the history of his times. 
The first edition was published at Paris 
between 1523 and 15&. He relates in 
them the events which occurred during 
his life, and In most of which he had an

Its purpose is to conduct the business

are elected as heads of the several 
municipal departments, and the manage-

Conception ^^j^^'^'^K'^^y^ 

in the mind; in phuoBophy, that mental 
act or combination of acts by which an 
absent object of perception is brought be- 
fore the mind by the imagination. 

Conception, SlT^^c*" ^tS.^ 

the doctrine that the Yirdn Mary was 
born without the stain oz original sin. 
This doctrine came Into favor in the 
twelfth century, when, however, it was 
opposed by St. Bernard, and It afterwards 
became a subject of vehement controversy 
between the Scotists, who supported, and 
the Thomists, who opposed it. In 1708 
Clement XI appointed a festival to be 
celebrated throughout the church in honor 
of the immaculate conception. Since 
that time it was received in the Roman 
Church as an opinion, but not as an 
article of faith until the year 1854, when 
the pope issued a bull which makes the 
immaculate conception a point of faith. 

Conceptualism iS ** ^-^^Srd^'a 

doctrine in some sense intermediate be- 
tween realism and nominalism. Con- 
ceptualism assigns to universals an ex- 
istence which may be called locical or 
psychological, that is, independent of 
single objects, but dependent upon the 
mind of the thinking subject, in which 
they are as notions or conceptions.

the brain resulting from blows and falls, 
though unattended with fracture of the

general, bom in 1621. In 1641 he mar- 
ried a niece of Cardinal Richelieu. His 
defeat of the Spanish at Rocroi, in 1643. 
was followed, in 1645, by his defeat of 
Mercy at Nordlingen, and by his capture 
of Dunkirk in 1646, the year in which he 
inherited his father's title. During the 
troubles of the Fronde he at first took 
the side of the court; but believing him- 
self to be ill requited by Mazarin He put 
himself at the head of the faction of the 
PetiU Matires, and was imprisoned for 
a year by Mazarin (1650). On his re- 
lease he at once put himself at the head 
of a new Fronde, entered upon negotia- 
tions with Spain, and, his attack on 
Paris being indecisive, retired to the 
Netherlands, where he was ai>pointed 
generalissimo of the Spanish armies. In 
this capacity he unsuccessfully besieged 
Arras m 1654; but he was more fortu- 
nate at Valenciennes in 1656, and at 
Cambrai in 1657. In 1658 he was de- 
feated before Dunkirk by Turenne, but 
was restored to his rank in France after 
the peace of 1659. In 1668 he accom- 
plished the reduction of Franche Comt6 in 
three weeks : and in 1674 he defeated the 
Prince of Orange at SenefL Qis snocessea 



over Montecnculi in Alsace in 1675 closed

wanderer in many atatea for thirteen 
yearib In 488 he returned to Lu, but 
would not take office. The deaths of his 
favorite disdples Yen Hwin and Tse-lu 
in 481 and 478 did much to bring about 
his own, which took place in the latter 
year. Confucius left no work detailing 
his moral and social system, but the five 
canonical books of Confucianism are the 
Yih'hing, the Bhu-hing, the Shi-kinff, the 
Leaking and the OAvit-Msfi, with which 
are grouped the ' Four Books/ by disciples 
of Confucius, the Ta^hio or * Qreat Study,* 
the Ohung-Yufho or 'Invariable Mean,' 
the Tun-yu or '^Philosophical Dialogues,* 
and the Hi-Ue, written by Meng-tse or 
Mendus. The teaching of Confucius has 
had, and still has, an immense influence 
in China, though he can hardly be said 
to have founded either a reli^on or a 
philosophy. All his teachings was devoted 
to practiad morality and to the duties of 
man in this world in relation to his 
fellowmen; in it was summed up the 
wisdom acquired by his own insight and 
experience, and diat derived from the 
teaching of the sages of antiquity. It is 
doubtful if he had any real belief in & 
personal god.

accumulation of blood in an onran, which 
thereby becomes disordered. Among the 
causes oi congestion are the different 



periods of development of the human 
body, each of which refiders some 
partkular organ unusually active; dis- 
eased conditions ; and the accidental exer- 
tions of certain organs. Again, if the 
current of blood to one organ is checked 
the blood tends to accumulate in another ; 
and the vessels which bring back the 
blood to the heart — that is, the veins- 
are sometimes obstructed, as by external 
pressure, by tumors, etc Congestioa 
sometimes lasts a short time only ; but if 
not early cured, and its return, which 
would otherwise be frequent^ prevented, 
it is only the beginning of other diseases. 
Sometimes it terminates in bleeding, 
which is a remedy for it; sometimes It 
increases into inflammation ; sometimes it 
becomes a chronic disease, that is, the 
blood accumulates for a long time and 
expands the vein^ the expansion becomes 
permanent, and dropsy may result.

in the South Atlantic. The mouth of the 
river was known to the Portuguese in 
1485, but the lower part of its course was 
first explored by an English expedition 
under Captain Tuckey, which, in 1816. 
ascended it for about 172 miles. In 1887, 
however, Livingstone discovered a con- 
siderable river called the Chambni, rising 
in the Chibaltf Hills, and having followed 
it to Lake Bangweolo traced it thence as 
the Luapula to Lake Moero, and tiience 
again as the Lualaba to Nyangwe. From 
this point its exploration was taken up in 
1878-77 by Stanley, who proved its 
identity with the Congo. It carries more 
water to the ocean than the Mississipoi. 
its volume being next to that of the 
Amason. Its total length is perhaps 
8000 miles. Its chief tributaries are the 
Aruwimi and the Mobangi from the risht, 
and the Ikelemba and Kwa from the left, 
which latter represents the collected wa- 
ters of immense rivers from the south 
such as the Kassai, the Kwango, etc It 
is navigable for about 110 miles from its 
mouth, after which the navigation is in- 
terrupted by cataracts. See next article.

Congressional Apportionment 



ConiA 



two hoiiBe»-^a Senate and a House of 
Representatives. The Senate consists of 
two members elected by the legislature of 
eadi state for a period of six years, one- 
third of whom are elected every two 
years. The Representatives in the lower 
house are elected by the people of the 
several states every two years, and their 
number varies in each state in proportion 
to the population as determined by the 
decennial census. The united body of 
senators and representatives for the two 
years during which the representatives 
hold their seats is called one Congress. 
See United States. 

Congressional Apportionment, 

the number of people appointed by act of 
Congress to be represented bv one Rep- 
resentative in Congress. The number 
fixed in the Constitution was 30,000 with 
the provision that each State should have 
at least one Representative. This num- 
ber was increased at each successive 
census, in order that the membership of 
the House should not become unwieldily 
large. The successive ratios since the 
formation of the government have been 
as follows :

Congreve 



(kon'^gr^), WzLUAic, an 
English dramatist, born 
1670, educated at Kilkenny, and at 
Trinity College, Dublin, from which he 
entered the Middle Temple, London. A 
novel entitled the InoogniUt, under the 
pseudonym of Cleophil, was followed, at 
the age of twenty-one, by his oomedr of 
the Old BaoheloTf the success of which 
procured for him the patronage of Lord 
Halifax, who made him a commissioner 
for licensing hackney-coaches ; soon after 
gave him a place in the pipe office ; and 
finally conferred on him a very lucrative 
place in the customs. He afterwards re- 
ceived an additional sinecure in the ap- 
5 ointment of secretary to the island of 
amaica. His next play, the DouUe 
Dealer, was less successful; his third 
comedy. Love for Love, and his trasedy 
The Mourning Bride (1679), were both 
popular; but after the cold reception of 
his Way of the World in 1700, he ceased 
altogether to write for the stage. He. 
however, continued to write occasional 
verses on public subjects; and in 1710 
published a collection of his plays and 
poems, which he dedicated to his early 
patron. Lord Halifax, to whose person 
and party he remained attached in all 
fortunes. He died in 1729. His plars 
belong to the artificial school of comedy, 
which aimed rather at the production of 
a sustained flow of wit than at the pre- 
cise delineation of character.

bom in England in 1772, and entered the 
army, from -which he retired in 1816 widi 
the rank of lieutenant-colonel of artillery 
and entered the House of Commons. He 
invented the rocket about 1804. It was 
first used in active liervice in the attack 
on Boulogne, 1806, and on Copenhagen, 
1807. He tock out patents also for the 
manufacture of gunpowder and of bank« 
note paper, and wrote treatises on the 
mounting of naval ordnance and on the 
hydro-pneumatic lock. He died at Tou- 
louse in 182S.

all merchandise passing from the seaport

poisonous principle of Conium maculaium 
(spotted hemlock), nat order Umbelli-

but especially in the not quite ripe seed. 
When pure it is a colorless, oily liquid, 
specific gravity 0.878, changing by ex- 
posure to air to a brown fluid, and ulti- 
mately to a resinous, bitter mass, insolu- 
ble in water but soluble in alcohol, and 
when purified yielding a jelly with a 
butyric odor. It has a nauseous taste 
and very disagreeable odor, sharp and 
choking when strong, but in small quan- 
tity like the odor of mice. It is exceed- 
ingly poisonous, appearing to cause death 
by inducing paralysis of the musdes used 
in respiration. It is antispasmodic and 
relaxant.

called because they are formed by the 
intersection of tiie surface of a cone with 
planes that cut the cone in various di- 
rections. If the cutting-plane be parallel 
to the axis the curve formed is the 
hyperbola (1) ; if parallel to the slope 
of the cone the curve is a parabola (2) ; 








Conio Seotioiis. 
if passing through both sides of the cone 
obliquely the section is an ellipse (3). 
A section perpendicular to the axis of 
the cone forms a circle (4), which may 
also be considered one of the conic sec* 
tions. A perpendicular plane through the 
apex gives a triangle (5).

and their alhes, a natural 
order of gymnospermous exogens, the 
essential character of which consists in 
the manner in which the ovules, not en- 
closed in an ovarv, receive directly the 
action of the pollen without the inter- 
vention of a stigma. The ovules in these 
plants are borne on scales or modified 



leaves, which are spread out, not folded, 
and generally grouped in such a manner 
as to form a cone composed of s. greater 
or smaller number of these leaves, of 
which only a portion may be fertile and 
bear ovules. The disposition of the ovules 
in relation to these scales permits of 
a division of the CnniferiB into three dis- 
tinct families or tribes. In the Cupren- 
»%ne<B, which include the juniper, cypress, 
etc.. the cones are formed of simple scales, 
each of which bears towards the base of 
its superior surface the ovules erect and 
sessile. The second famUy, Abietinew, 
has, in place of simple scales, scsles 
actually double or formed of two parts; 
the lower on^ usually designated the 
bract: the other bearing at its base the 
ovules^ reversed. This family includes 
the pines, firs and larches, the arau- 
carias, welllngtonias, dammaras, etc In 
these two families the ovules are com- 
pletely covered by the scales which con- 
stitute the cones, which unite after fecun- 
dation and enclose the seed till tiielr

It is either lineal or collateral — lineal

educated himself, he taught for a short 
time in a school, and then served in the 
army for six years. He was for a time 
tutor in Flemish to the ro/al princes, 
and from 1868 conservator of the Wierts 
Museum at Brussels. His novels, some 
of which have been translated into Eng-

Flemish life. They include The Lion of 
Flanders; Jakob van Arievelde; Batavia;

Consequential Damages 

passed by the National Assembly in 1872, 
affirmed the universal liability to con- 
scripdon* with certain exemptions. The 
Prussian conscription law of 1806 per- 
mitted no exemptions ; it was extended to 
all Germany and became a potent factor 
in the Franco-Prussian war, 1870. The 
system was abolished in Germany by the 
peace treaty of 1919. Similarly Austria, 
which had enforced conscription, was 
compelled by the treaty of 1919 to abolish 
universal compulsory service. Under the 
Russian law of 1872 all men of twenty- 
one years were compelled to serve in the 
army six years. Italy and Switaeiiand 
and most of the other countries of Europe 
have adopted conscription. The outstand- 
ing exception was Great Britain, which, 
prior to the war of 1914-18, had fought all 
her battles with volunteer troops. In the 
stress of the Great War she was compelled 
to forego her volunteer policy^ and on May 
24, 1016, enacted a conscription law call- 
ing all men between the ages of 18 and 41 
to the colors. This law was not applied 
to Ireland. Canada adopted conscnption 
August 29, 1917, callinff to the colors all 
men betwen the ages of 20 and 45. The 
age limit was lowered to 19 in May, 1918. 
Canada raised a volunteer army of 405,- 
984, adding onlv 83,355 by the draft. 
Australia refused to adopt conscription. 

In the United States conscription was 
resorted to on several occasions nuring the 
Civil war. Again in 1017, following the 
declaration of war with Germany, the 
United States passed the Selective Senrice 
Law on May 19, calling for the registra- 
tion of all males in the United States be- 
tween the ages of 21 and 30 years. Neariy 
10,000,000 Americans registered on Jime 
5. A second registration, one year later 
(June 5, 1918, and August 24. 1918). in- 
cluded those who had become 21 ^eara old 
since the first registrntion. A third regis- 
tration (Sept. 12, 1918) extended the age 
limits downward to 18 and upward to 45. 
The total number registered was 24,234,- 
021 ; number inducted to Nov. 11. 1918. 
2,810,296. In round numbers 4,000.000

The conn^tahle, however, acquired so 
much power that Louis XIIl in 1627 
abolished the office entirely. Napoleon 
reestablished it, but it vanished with his 
downfall. In England the office of lord 
high constable was created by William 
the Conqueror, and became hereditary 
in two different families, as annexed to 
the earldom of Hereford. After the at- 
tainder of Stafford, however, lord high 
constables were appointed only to offici- 
ate on special occasions. The office of 
lord high constable of Scotland, expressly 
reserved in the treaty of union, is hered- 
itary in the noble family of Errol. 

In the common modem acceptation of 
the term constables are police officers in 
towns, counties, etc, having as their 
duties the repression of fdonies, the 
keeping of the peace, the execution of 
legal warrants, etc. In case of special 
disturbance a certain number of private 
citizens may be sworn in as gpeoial con*

against the Iconodaata* deposed PhotiusL 
and confirmed St. Ignatius In the see of 
Constantinople. This council is not rec- 
ognised by the Greek Church. 

Constellations <^ "" 2:* tei-ia'shmis) 

wu0vvM.niiAVAA.o ^j.g ^g groups into 

which astronomers have divided the fixed 
stars, and which have received names for 
convenience of description and reference. 
It is plain that the union of several stars 
into a constellation, to which the name 
of some animal, person, or inanimate 
object is given, must be entirely arbi- 
trary, since the several points (the stars) 
may be united in a hundred different 
ways, just as imagination directs. The 
grouping adopted by the Egyptians was 
accordingly modified by the Greeks, 
though they retained the Ram, the Bull, 
the Dog, etc.; and the Greek constella- 
tions were again modified by the Romans 
and again by the Arabians. At various 
times, also, Christianity has endeavored 
to supplant the pagan system, the Vener- 
able &ede having given the names of the 
twelve apostles to the signs of the sodiac, 
and Judas Schillerius having, in 1627, ap- 

{>lied Scripture names to aU the constel- 
ations. Weigelius, a professor of Jena, 
even grouped the stars upon a heraldic 
basis, introducing the arms of all the 
princes of Europe among the constella- 
tions. The old constellanons have, how- 
ever, been for the most part retained. 
Ptolemy enumerated forty-eight constella- 
tions, which are still called the Piole- 
mwan. They are the following: — ^1. The 
twelve signs of the zodiac (see Zodiac). 
2. Twenty-one constellations found in the 
northern hemisphere — the Great Bear 
(Urta Major), the Little Bear (Ur»a 
Minor), Perseus, the Dragon, Cepheus, 
Cassiopeia, Andromeda, Pegasus, Equulua 
(Horse's Head), the Triangle, the Wag- 
oner (Auriga), Bo5tes, the Northern 
Crown (Corona Borealis), Ophiuchus, 
the Serpent (Serpeniariua) , Hercules, 
the Arrow (Baaitia), the Lyre, the Swan 
(Oygnut), the Dolphin, the Eagle (AquU 
7a). 3. IHfteen constellations in the 
southern hemisphere — Orion, the Whale 
(Cetui), Erldanus, the Hare (Lepw), 
the Great Dog (Oanit Major), the Little 
Dog (Canit Minor), Hydra, the Cup 
(Crater), the Crow (Corvat), the Cen- 
taur, the Wolf (Lupua), the Altar 
(Ara), the Southern Pish (PiMoiB Atw- 
trAlia), the Argo, the Southern Crown 
iCorHna Auairdlia). Others were sub- 
sequently added, this being especially ren- 
dered necessary by the increased naviga- 
tion of the southern hemisphere, and now 
the different groups of stars have come to 
bt ftH(K**^te« wit^ all sorts of animals 



and objects, including the Camelopard, the 
Fly, the Air-pump, the Compasses, etc. 
The different stars of a constellation are 
marked by Greek letters, a denoting 
those of the first magnitude, P those of 
the second, and so on. Stars of the sixth 
magnitude are the smallest visible to the 
naked eye. Several stars have also par- 
ticular names.

dered appetite, a dry, coated or clammy 
tongue, thirst, or a disa^eeable taste in 
the mouth, dullness, giddiness, or pain in 
the head, torpor, irritability and despond- 
ency. Its less immediate effects are cu- 
taneous affections, dyspepsia, colic, hys- 
teria, hemorrhoids, etc. In most cases 
it is produced by indigestible food, as- 
tringent and stimulating drinks, seden- 
tary habits, excessive indulgence in sleep, 
etc. The immediate use of purgatives, 
followed by strict attention to regimen, 
is in many cases all that is necessary.

delegates of the French nation (1789-91) 
to distinguish it from the legislative as-

the acceptance of the first of the famous 
revolutionary constitutions. The Constit- 
uent Assembly of 1848 had a similar

State, whether it be a written instrument 
of a certain date, as that of the United 
States of America, or an aggregate of 
laws and usuages which have been formed 
in the course of ages, like the English 
constitution. The Ideal constitution is 
that established by a free sovereign people 
for their own regulation, though the ex- 
pediency of other forms at various stages 
of national development cannot but be 
recognised. The cnief of these are: — ^1. 
Constitutions granted by the plenary 
power of absolute monarcms, or conaHiu- 
tion9 ooiroyiea, such as Louis ^.. /Ill's 
Charte. 2. Those formed by contract be- 
tween a ruler and his people, the con- 
tract being mutually binding — a class un- 
der which, in a great degree, the British 
constitution must be placed. 3. Those 
formed by a compact between different 
sovereign powers, such as the constitu- 
tions of the German Empire, of the 
United Provinces of Holland, and of the 
Swiss O>nfederation. 4. Those made bv 
the people of a country or state for their 
own government, as in the United Staten. 
In regard to political principles, consti- 
tutions are: — 1. Democratic, when the

unprodnctiye, according as it does or does 
not conduce to the etficiency of a pro- 
ducer and to further production. Thus 
wealth in the form of machinery is con- 
sumed productively by wear and tear 
in the processes of production; and, 
similarly, wealth expended in improving 
land is productively consumed; but the 
wealth expended in the maintenance of 
an operatic artiste is, from the ordinary 
point of view, unproductively consumed. 
The classification, however, is not of a 
very definite kind, the distinction lying, 
for the most part, in the degree of direct- 
ness and obviousness with which the act 
of consumption is related to production. 
Hence in the case of the operatic artiste 
it is sometimes urged that the recreative 
benefit conferred upon the community 
tends indirectly to increase efficiency in 
production, and that from this point of 
view the artiste consumes productively. 
Bo the expenditure of wealth in war, or 
in preparations for war, usually classed 
as unproductive, may be really productive 
consumption, as tending to the assurance 
of the producer in the stabilitv of the 
commerdal conditions. The perfect char- 
acterisation of an act of consumption as 
productive or unproductive involves the 
consideration of elements of a frequently 
incommensurable kind, and the rough 
practical economic test has to be employed 
with some amount of reservation. Con- 
sumption is the end of all production; 
and as the demand of the consumer de- 
termines the employment of the various 
coefficients of production, land, labor and 
capital, it is urged by many later 
economists that the scientific treatment of 
economics should proceed from consump- 
tion to production, instead of from pro- 
duction to consumption in accordance 
with the method of the older economists. 
Too much stress may be laid upon this 
method, but the consideration of economic 
problems from the standpoint of the con- 
sumer is of advantage, as giving the 
social need, rather than the producer's 
profit, the prior claim upon the attention. 

Contact Action. See CatalytU. 

CoTltll.^on (kon-ta'Jun), the com- 
l/0ni»^OIl munication of disease by 

contact direct or indirect. A distinction 
has sometimes been made between oot^ 
iaqion, as the communication of disease 
strictly by contact, and infection, as com- 
munication of disease by the miasmata, 
exhidations or germs which one body 
rives out and the other receives. Then 
is little doubt that excessively minute 
disease germs proceed from the breath, 
th« perspiration or other excretions of a 



disiased person, and are capable of prop- 
agating the disease in another person; 
but much remains to be learned con- 
cerning the action of these. Antiseptiet^ 
or dittnfeotantif are used to destroy the 

Eoisonous particles, such as fonnalde^ 
yde, carbolic acid, sulphur, permangan- 
ate of potash, chlorine gas, etc 

Contagions Diseases (Animals) 

AM- an act of the British Partis- 
^ ment passed in consequence of 
the ravages of the disease known at 
Rinderpe$t or cattle-plague, which broke 
out in 1866. Commissioners were ap- 

Sointed to investisate the subject, and in 
869 an act (subsequently amended by 
acts in 1878, 1884 and 1886) was passed 
enforcing regulations for preventing the 
introduction and spread of contagious 
diseases. 

In the United States similar acts were 
made to stamp out pleuro-pneumoaia, 
or lung plague, which caused much loss 
amonc neat-cattle. Kentucky, Indiana, 
Illinois and Missouri suffered largely from 
this disease, but it has been completely 
stamped out by the Bureau of Animal In- 
dustry. The symptoms of lung plague 
are fever, dry mtmle, accelerated pulse 
and respiration, dei^ression. cough and 
indications of pleurisy and pneumonia. 
In about 50 per cent, of the cases death 
occurs in from one to two weeks from Its 
attack; of the remainder about one-half 
become chronic and recover. No thera- 
peusis that has been tried has been found 
of any value, so governments have made 
regulations to quarantine infected and 
suspected animals, and for the slaughter 
of those regarded as dangerous to healtiiy 
animals. The United States freed itself 
from pleuro-pneumonia by enforcing these 
measures. It is estimated that the loss 
caused by this disease reached several 
million dollars in this country, while in 
Britain the annual loss for some years 
amounted to over S10,000,000. It does 
not affect human beings. See Rindet'

ContaneO (kon-tang'gO), in stock- 
^ "* o^ Jobbing, a sum of money 
paid to a seller for accommodating a 
buyer, by carrying the engagement to pay 
the price of shares bought over to the 
next account day. In reality, contango 
is interest paid for the loan of money 
for the interval between account days. 
The price at which the bargain is entered 
is called the making-up price.

' Contempt 



Contraot 



fioTit^TnTit (kon-temf), an ofCeiue 
trOUXempi against the dignity, order, 
or authority of a court or legislative 
assembly. Contempts committed out of 
court may be punished by fine or im- 
prisonment, contempts done before court 
are usually punished in a summary way 
by commitment or fine. The power of 
▼indicating their authority against 
contempt is incident to all superior 
courts.

as Europe, Asia, Africa, North anq 
South America; or we may speak of the 
Eastern and Western continents, Europe, 
Asia and Africa being regarded as one, 
and North and South America another. 
Australia, from its size, is often regarded 
as a continent, while Europe and Asia, 
regarded as a single body of land, are 
frequently spoken of as a continent un- 
der the name of Eurasia. 

Continental System ^^J't^^ 

devised by Napoleon to exclude Britain 
from intercourse with the continent ot 
Europe. It began with the decree of Ber- 
lin of November 21, 1806, by which the 
British Islands were declared to be In a 
state of blockade; all conmierce. inter- 
course and correspondence were prohibi- 
ted; every Briton found in France, or a 
country occupied by French troops, was 
declared a pnsoner of war; all property 
belonging to Britons, fair prize, and all 
trade in goods from Britain or British 
colonies entirely prohibited. Britain re- 
plied by orders in council prohibiting 
trade with French ports, and declaring 
all harbors of France and her allies sub- 
jected to the same restrictions as if they 
were closely blockaded. Further decrees 
on the part of France, of a still more 
stringent kind, declared all vessels of 
whatever flag, which had been searched 
bv a British vessel or paid duty to Brit- 
ain, denationidized, and directing the 
burning of all British goods, etc. These 
decrees caused great annoyance, and gave 
rise to much smuggling, till annulled at 
the fall of Napoleon, 1814.

surface of a country or district at a 
uniform height above the sea-level, and 
then laid down on a map or plan« so that 
an approximately true outline of its con-

^ese formerly were confined to arms aiu 
munitions, but the contraband list has 
been so lengthened during recent wars an 
to include practically everything that 
might be of benefit to a belligerent. 

ContrabaSSO Ujon-tra-bas'so), the

times the double bast), with three strings 
usually tuned in fourths. Its compass 
is from the lower A of the bass del to 
tenor F. In Germany a fourth string is 
used, which gives it a range of three 
notes lower. 

Contract (ko^'trakt), in law, an 
agreement or covenant be- 
tween two or more persons, in which 
each party binds himself to do or forbear 
some act, and each acquires a right to 
what the other promises. Contracts may 
be in express terms or implied from the 
acts of the parties; they may be verbal 
or written, and at common law both 
forms are binding; but by statute law a 
promise must be in writing. To be valid. 
a contract must be entered into by parties 
legally competent ; that is, of sound mind 
and of fun age. The act contracted for 
must not be contrary to law or public 
policy. Thus, an agreement to do injury 
to anouier or a contract not to marrv 
at an (except in the case of a widow)

Conversion tkon-v6r'shun), a term 
wM.«««AiMVM. jjj logic. A proposition 

is converted when the predicate is pat in 
the place of the subject, and the subject 
In place of the predic«ke ; as, ' no A is 
B' (*no virtuous man is a rebel*), the 
converse of which is * no B is A' ('no 
rebel is a virtuous man*). Simple con- 
version, however, in this manner is not 
always logical. In the case of universal 
affirmatives, for example, * all A are B ' 
(say, *all men are animals'), the simple 
converse ' all B are A ' (* all animals are 
men*) would not be true.

Conveyancing te^-r/rlwSl 

deeds, leases, or other writings {convey-'

investigating the title of the vendors and 
purchasers of property, and of framing 
those multifarious deeds and contracts 
which govern and define the rights and 
liabilities of families and individuals. 
The business of conveyancing is carried 
on by barristers, solicitors, and members 
of the legal profession generally. 
Convict (kon'vict), the general term

Convocation C^ o n-vO-ka'shun), an 
wvuTvvnvxvu assembly of the clergy 

of England, belonging either to the prov- 
ince of Canterbury or to that of York, 
to consult on ecclesiastical matters. From 
the fact that the province of Canterbury 
is by much the more influential of the 
two provinces into which England is 
ecclesiastically divided, the convocation of 
tbo province of Canterbury is often 
spoken of as the convocation, as if 
there were only one. In former times 
convocations had the power of enacting 



canons; but this power was virtually 
abolished by the statutes of Henry VIII 
and Elizabeth. 

Convolvulacea i''^--J?i3^-iJ^t?:*)f

others are cultivated in gardens. 0. tri^ 
color, or minor convolvulus, with its large 
flowers of violet blue, with white and 
yellow center, is a familiar species. 
Scammony is obtained from the root of 
the Convolvulus Scammonia, a native of 
Syria; the liqueur noyau from O. dU- 
sectus. Some species, like the C. BatH- 
tae, or sweet-potato, have tuberous and 
fleshy roots capable of being used as 
food. Convolvillua Jalapa was lone con-

Convulsion i'LT5?^^??>'.''pa»i^ 

muscular contraction or series of con- 
tractions, with alternate relaxations. 
Convulsions are universal or partiid, and 
have obtained different names according 
to the parts affected, or the symptoms. 
The^ muscles principally affected in all 
species of convulsions are those imme- 
diately under the direction of the wUl, as 
those of the eyelidsj eye, face, jaws, neck, 
superior and inferior extremities. Con- 
vulsions are produced commonly by irri- 
tation of some part of the brain or spinal 
cord, such as the general convulsions in 
inflammation of the brain membranes or 
of the nerves themselves. Children of a 
nervous temperament are often the sub-

flnnVpTir (kuk'e-ri), the preparation 
uoui^cry of food so as to render it 
more palatable and more digestible. The 
art is of great importance, not only for 
comfort, but also for health. Food is 
mainly prepared by submitting it to the 
action of fire as by roasting, boiling, 
stewing, etc Bach of these processes 
develops a different flavor in food, but 
they result alike In rendering the tissues, 
both of animal and vegetable food, softer 
and much more easily dealt with by the 
digestive organs. The art of cookery was 
carried to considerable perfection among

Athenians. Extravagance and luxury at 
table were notable features of Roman life 
under the empire. Among moderns the 
Italians were the first to reach a hirh 
degree of art in this department. Their 



cooking^ like that of the ancient Romans, 
is distuguished by a free use of oil. 
Italian cookery seems to have been trana- 

Slanted by the princesses of the House of 
ledici to l^'rance, and was carried there 
to perhaps the highest degree of perfec- 
tion; even yet the skill and resource 
whidi the French cook shows in dealing 
often with very slight materials is a 
highly creditable feature in the domestic 
economy of the nation. No other people 
seems to have equaled the French in this 
art.

could be confused and so complicated

wooden pole. The quality is then tested, 
and, if found satisfactory, the copper 
is cast into ingots. In extracting the 
metal from pyrites by the wet process, 
the ore is first roasted to get rid of the 
larger proportion of sulphur, then the 
calcined residue, still containing sulphur, 
is mixed with common salt, ground and 
heated in ovens. The copper is thus 
converted into chloride, part of which 
voiatilises, but is condensed along with 
arsenic and other substances, by pas- 
sage through flues and water-condensers. 
After some hours the calcined mixture 
is raked out of the ovens, cooled, and 
transferred to tanks, where it is ex- 
hausted by successive treatment with 
water. The solution, containing chloride 
of copper, sulphate and chloride of so- 
dium, and iron salts, is next heated along 
with scrap-iron. Copper precipitates in 
the form of a ruddy, lustrous, tolerably 
compact mass, with a crystalline appear- 
ance, and mixed with metallic iron and 
oxide. The larger pieces of iron are 
picked out, the precipitate washed and 
drained, and then rendered compact by 
heating in a furnace. A slag containing 
the oxide of iron formsj and the cop- 
per, when judged eufiiciently pure, is 
run into molds. Afterwards this crude 
metal is refined and toughened in the 
usual way, and the slags are employed 
as in the Welsh process. Some of the 
alloys of copper, especially those con- 
taining tin and sine, are of considerable 
importance, e. g., bronze, an alloy com- 
posed of varying parts of copper, and tin ; 
heUrtnetal also produced from an alloy of 
copper and tin; British bronze coin- 
age, copper 05, tin 4, zinc 1. Copper 
is applied to a great many useful pur- 
poses. In sheets it is used for shentning 
the bottoms of ships, covering roofs and 
domes, the constructing of boilers and 
stills of a large size, etc. It is also used 
in electrotyping and engraving, for vari- 
ous household utensils and fittings; but 
its use for household utensils is by no 
means free from danger on account of the 
action of acids on it, which produces ver- 
digris. As it is one of the best cond\ictors 
of electricity, it is now largely employed 
for this purpose, especially in conducting 
the powerful currents used in power 
transmission.

Copperheads, ^n epithet applied to 

^"^ ' pacifists and disloyal 

Northerners during the Civil War. The 
Ohioans are given credit for the first use 
of the term, probably having in mind the 
characteristics of the snake of that name. 
The copperhead snake hides in tall grass 
or lurks in crannies of rocks and strikes 
without a previous hint of his animosity. 
He never comes out into the open. Sim- 
ilar traitorous characteristics were sus- 
pected in the pacifist, hence the transfer 
of the title. During the European war 
the epithet was revived and applied to 
those who did not believe in carrying the 
war to a military conclusion.

crease in height of each of ttke latter, 
which, as they grow, become divided 
tranHverael; by partitions. The animal, 
distended with ova, collapses on their 
discbarge, and thus becomes too small 
for the cup which it formerly occupied : 
it cuts off Ihe waste space by a hori- 
Kontal layer ol coral, and the repetition 
of this process gradually adds to the 
heiicbt of the mass. It is in this wsy 
that the coral reefs and islands, occur- 
ring in socb abundance in tbe Pacific,

gin, say, of a South Sea island (see a in 
the figure) is tbe work of corals living 
tbe shore. This island is supposed 

fradually to aubside into the ses, 
ut BO slowly as to allow the coral 
polyps, which cannot exist at a 
grester depth than between 20 and 
30 fathoms from the surface, to 
add to tbe height of tbe reef aad 
keep themselves always at the 
same level. Thus, in the course of 
time, as the island sinks In the 
constantly recedinc margin, the 
coral formation will no longer be 
ft fringing reef, but will stand out 
at sea, with water on all side* be- 
twixt it and tbe island. In this 
way the barrier reef is formed (as 
In b). But should the island coo- 
tlnue to sink till it disappear altogether, 
tbe reef la then left as a huge circle en- 
closing a lagooD and constituting the 
atoll (c). By accretions of various kinds 
this finally rises above the surface of 
the sea, is taken possession of by a 
tropical vegetation, and at length be- 
comes the habitation of man. Darwin'i 
theory is h; many not considered satis-

red, pink, and black sorts are the most

branching, shrub-like form, and, witii 
other kinds, is found abnodantly in the 
Mediterranean. The coral fishery, as It is 
called, is carried on in various parts ot 
the Mediterranean, the principal locali- 
ties being the southwest coast of Corsica, 
where the finest qualitv Is found, the 
coast of South Italy, and the north coast 
of Africa (Algeria and Tunls>. Tbe 
raw coral ia wrought chiefly in Leghorn, 
Genoa and Naples. The coral is brought 
up from the bottom by means of net- 
work bags with wide meshes, attscbed 
to crossbeams of wood that are let down 
from a vessel by a line. Italy takes the 
leading part both in fishing for coral and 
in its preparatinn fnr the market. Coral
