But tell us what you conclude from the results. In fa& I have tried the experiment only a t a short distance, less than a mile, from which I have not been able to ascertain with certainty whether the appearance of the opposite posite light was instantaneous or not; but if not instantaneous it is extraordinarily rapid-I should call it momentary; and for the present I should compare it to motion which we see in the lightning flash between clouds eight or ten miles distant from us. We see the beginning of this light-I might say its head and [%I source-located at a particular place among the clouds; but it immediately spreads to the surrounding ones, which seems to be an argument that a t least some time is required for propagation; for if the illumination were instantaneous and not gradual, we should not be able to distinguish its origin-its center, so to speak-from its outlying portions.

But the angles at B are equal and therefore AH: H B =IF: FB =EF: FB =AE:EB. Besides, I may add, that it is impossible for lines which maintain this same ratio and which are drawn from the terminal points, A and B, to meet at any point either inside or outside the circle, CEG. For suppose this were possible; let AL and BL be two such lines intersedting a t the point L outside the circle: prolong LB till it meets the circumference a t M and join MF.
