Halloy'B coniot wiib observed by
Prof. O. D. Swczey at the university
Wednesday morning. The periodic
visitor was Blghted through the four
Inch telescope, a Hinall tall being v!h
Ible with thlB Instrument. The comet
ilfuH at about -1 o'clock in the morn
ing and tho best tlmo to look for it la
about 4 :I10 or 4 :4H, nB by that tlmo the
comet baa rlBcn above tho denao at
mofphoro near the horizon which oth
erwise would refract many of the rays.
Professor Swczcy thought that be
wan ablo to make out tho comet with
tho nakod cyo. Ho looked along the
tolescopo and discerned a hi cck of
light which ho took for tho comet. He
says that It can bo seen with a tele
Bcopb or an opera glass. Through such
an Instrument tho comet will appear
llko a rather fuzzy and vaguo star.
Tho comot is almost duo east and
nbcut ton degrees, or one-eighteenth of
tho diBtanco across the horizon above
Tho intense intorcBt In Halley'B
comet la not duo to brilliancy, and ia
only partially duo to tho Tact that tho
earth -will paes directly through tho
tall of tho comot, whllo tho distance
of tho earth from tho head will bo as
to the unlvcVse but as the breadth of
n hair. Tho chief scientific Intorc3t
lies In tho fact that this comet Is one
of recurring periods, returning to tho
earth at Intervals of a little over seventy-five
years. For Instance, its an
nual recurrenco was 1n K178, MfG,
1581, 1G07. 1C82, 1758, and so on. Ed
mund I alloy discovered this in 1082.
snylng that If the comet returned In
1758, posterity nniBt admit that an
Englishman had discovered tho
comet's travel by tho law of gravita
tion, in cither parabolas, hyperbolas
or ellipses. Most comets follow the
two first geometrical figures, but Hal
ley's comot was tho apt ono for pur
posos of astronomical proof because

Identified With History.
Eow comets have been so bound up
with human history. At Intervals of
almost regular recurrence, it has
flared tho skies, a celestial scntlnol
alnco tho days when man knolt down
before wood and stone, slnco oven
that earlier ago wlien tho prehistoric
ape-man shrunk from Its bonms and
cowered in its caves whllo tho mam
moths and saurlans made night hide
ous with tho cries of foar. It hung
ovor.Romo In 11 13. C, when Agrlpp.i
lay on tho death bid, whllo Its next
appearance is chronicled with waillngs
from Joscphus who sees predicted
therein tho fall of tho city qf God,
Attila looked with foar at tho hcav
only portent as ho waited for tho
armies to movo to conflict in tho bat

Duchess of Normandy, and tho first
Norman queen of JTnglnnd, gives us n
picture of tho comet on tho tapestry
which sho omblnzoned of tho triumph,
making It more than probablo that tho
Saxon hosts of Harold may havo been
filled with fear at tho sight, a mani
festation of the hand of God which
wns soon to punish tho English leader
for his perjury. Tho Turk'i conquest
of Constantinople, tho founding ' of
Jamestown and tho great uprising
when Pechnnougb attempted to wipe
out tho militant colony in tho James
town massacre was presaged by the
appoarunco of another comet which

been taken for tho one of great his

Is distant but 15,000,000 mllos. Tho
orbits of tho two bodies intersect nt
an anglo of about 15 degrees, llko tho
spokes of a wheel. Tho point of In
tersection, tho hub, will be reached
by tho comet about eight days after
the earth has passed that point. But
the influenco of graity Is strong and
nil compelling. Might not the nenr ap
proach of the earth, backed as It la
with all tho potential pulling energy
of tho solar system, draw tho comet
out of Its customary orbit and bring
it near enough to the earth to cause a
catastrophe. It need only strike tho
earth's atmosphere to Induce such a
dogreo of heat that all living things
would perish, whllo to strlko tho earth
Itself would mean the long prophesied
end of tho world.
Such nn event is far from probable,
however. It has been estimated by
competent astronomers that tho
chances of a collision between such
