Tremendous Comet In the Heavens
A terrible ball of fire has recently been
discovered in the Heavens, and is said to
be approaching the Earth at the rate of
one hundred and seven million miles per
day. Astronomers are somewhat alarmed
as to the direction ia which it ia centered,
and tell ns that if it does not change its
course, it will sorely be the destruction
of the earth. It is estimated to be twelve
times larger than the great planet Jupi
ter, which is the largest planet of the
Universe. Astronomers tell us it will
soon be visible to the people of this cod
tiaent. It can be easily observed by the
people of China and it is said that the
