Memoranda:

We have 208 bones, 600 muscles. Our blood weighs 25 lbs. Our heart is 5 inches in diameter. It beats 70 times per minute, 4200 times per hour, 100,800 times per day. At each beat a little over 2 ounces of blood is thrown out of it and each day it receives and discharges about 7 tons of that wonderful fluid.

The sun is molten or white hot mass. 856000 mi in diameter equalling in bulk of 1260000 worlds like our own. Having a surrounding ocean of gas or fire 50000 miles deep. Tongues of flames darting upward more than 50000 mi. Volcanic forces that hurl into the solar atmosphere. Luminous matter to the height of 160000 mi. Thus he continues his sublime and restless march through his mighty orbit having a period of more than 18000000 of years. The first eclipse of the moon was recorded at Babylon B.C. 721 March 19. Christmas was transferred by Pope Julius I A.D. 337 from Jan 6 to Dec 25.

Seven wonders of the world are among the traditions of childhood and yet not one person in a hundred can name them. They are the Pyramids of Egypt, the Temple the walls and the hanging gardens of Babylon, the Chryselphantine statue of Jupiter, Olympus, the most renowned work of Phidia, the temple of Diana at Ephesus which was 220 years in building and 425 feet in length by 220 feet in breadth and supported by 117 marble columns of the Ionic order, 60 ft. in height; the Mausoleum at Halicarnessns erected to the memory of Mausolas the King of Coria by his wife Artemasia 354 B.C.; the Pharos at Alexandria. A light house erected by PtolmySater at the entrance of the harbor of Alexandria 450 ft. high and seen at a distance of 100 Mi. and lastly the colossus at Rhodes, a brazen image of Apollo 105 Grecian ft in height.

Life is made up of sunshine and shadows about five shadows to one sunshine. Light after darknings. Gain after loss. Strength after suffering. Crown after cross.

A kiss on the forehead denotes reverence and respect. A kiss on the eyes shows tenderness and pure affection. A kiss on the cheek intimate that the donor is impressed with the beauty of the kissed one. A kiss on the lips shows love.

Jeffie Greens ran away the 26th of April, 1878.
