THE MIRAGE OF THE DESERT.
THE MIRAGE.-There is a certain angle at which a ray of light, having passed through one medium, on coming to the surface of the one below will not pass into it, but will be totally reflected back into the first medium as from a mirror. This is called the critical angle. Different strata of air answer this purpose, and hence the mirage. Suppose the atmospheric strata
in the figure decrease in density from a to d, owing to the

If the sun at rising appears enlarged, there will shortly be sudden and sharp showers, if in summer; but in winter settled and moderate weather. The enlarged appearance of the sun is the result of dense vapor in the air on the point of condensation. The different electrical condition of the atmosphere secures the contrary result in winter.-Steinmitz. Sexagesima Sunday.
A clear sky and sun setting in a well-defined form without dazzling the eye, and a deep, solemn calm, in winter is attended by the sharpest frost of the season; in summer it foreshadows a hot and brilliant day.

heat arising from the desert's scorched sands, a ray of light coming from the object will be refracted from the perpendicular in passing downward through the stratum a, still more in passing through b, and so on until it reaches a stratum, d, where the critical angle is reached and the ray becomes totally reflected. The direction of theray will then be upward. The sky, being thus reflected from near the ground, looks like a lake
