Over sixty of the brightest stars have special names, besides the Greek letters, which Bayer in his star-map, published in 1603, assigned to each star, thus designating their places and rank in a constellation, Alpha (a) being the brightest star of the constellation, and Beta (3) the next brightest, etc. Sometimes, however, they are applied to the star in their order of position rather than in that of brightness. The proper names of stars are partly of Latin and Greek origin like Regulus, Sirius, Arcturus, Procyon, Capella, etc., and partly Arabic like Vega, Alnitah, Mintaka, Alnilam, Saiph. etc. The name Deneb, meaning "the tail," is applied to several stars, as Deneb Cygni, Deneb Kaitos in the constellation Cetus.

DEGREES OF LONGITUDE AND LATITUDE. It is only on the equator that a degree of longitude is 69% statute or 60 nautical or geographical miles, the latter in the nautical language also called knots. With increasing latitudes this length decreases. So in our own latltude, about 40°, one degree of longitude measures only 53 miles. Near the poles these distances become very small. Degrees of latitude also vary, increasing with increasing latitudes. While a degree of latitude near the equator measures about 68.7 miles, near the poles it measures nearly 69.4 miles."

HIGH BUILDINGS IN BALTIMORE.
BALTIMORE'S RESTRICTED AREA.
Baltimore has a greater population to the square mile than any of the cities of its class. The last census shows:
The population just outside Baltimore's artificial limits is estimated at 100,000 or over. Were this number, or the number shown by the police census to have been omitted in the Federal census of 1910, added, Baltimore would rank above Cleveland. The Directory of 1912 gives Baltimore and suburbs nearly 700,000 names.
For water supplied through meters 65 cents per 1,000 cubic feet. The flat rates, when supplied outside the city, on dwellings not over 15 feet wide, $12; not over 20 feet wide, $18; not over 25 feet, $25; over 25 feet, $32.50. The meter rate in the county is $1.50 per 1,000 feet. Fire plugs in county, $25.
SALOONS AND LICENSES, BALTIMORE.
In 1907 the cost of a liquor license for a saloon, club, hotel or wholesale dealer was $250; in 1908, $500; in 1909, $750; in 1910 and thereafter $1,000. The first wholesale druggist's liquor license was issued in 1908, when the cost was fixed at $250 by the high license law, which increased the cost of a retail grocer's license from $250 to $500. The cost of a bottler's license was $40 in 1907, $80 in 1908, $129 in 1909 and $160 in 1910 and thereafter.
The revenue from licenses in 1912 was $1,501,240, or $19,192.50 less than in 1911. The city's share is three-fourths.
CENTER OF POPULATION.
The position of the center of population of the United States in 1910 was at Bloomington, Indiana, latitude 39° 10′ 12′′ N., longitude 86° 32′ 20′′ W.. 39 miles west of its position in 1900 and 558 miles west of its position in 1790, when it was 23 miles east of Baltimore. The present movement west is due to increased population on the Pacific Coast. The center of area is in latitude 39° 55' N., longitude 98° 50′ W.
