Seven Comets on
Ujr LIKJAll IXCIKN LAHKIX
What change has happened to the na
tlon? For the first time since entering
nn observatory, when a comet has been
visible to the unaided eye. I have not re
celved letters from fear-harassed per
sons whose reason wa tin the verge of
overthrow, or really Insane. Will there
be floods? Fir? Oreat railway or steam
ship accident? War? Epidemics? Death
of ruler? Heavy coast wave? Karth
qunkes? And will the world come to ao
cud? No one ho far In 1911.
Without doubt the cessation Of the
stock uestlons Is due to the spread of
astronomical knowledge. Nearly ail large
newspaper and magazines now contain
agronomical article, as well as articles
on other sciences.
After the vanishing of Halley's comet,
und Its withdrawal to a distance so great
that the largest telprameraa and most
sensitive platca cannot detect It, a number
of small wanderer came to enliven
astronomic, times. The position given

Max Wolf of IMdelberf, on June 19, 11)11,
detected the return of a regular comet
nieiovered by him several year ago. It
wns lu rlgh ascension IS hour and 4ii
minute, and north declination U degree
28 nilnutex. Hmall, and seen In a In rue
ti'lesi ope only.
On July C, Astronomer Kelsa discovered
a comet In Hunt ascension 4 hour 62
lutnultw, and In north declination 35 de
pree lfi minute. Itlght ascension In th
sky correspond to longitude on earth,
and declination, distance north or south
from the celeatla I equator to latitude
north or south on tha earth. Terrestrial
longitude Is reckoned east or west of a
tine drawn from the North Pole through,
a spider's thread in tirecnwlch to th
rViiuh role. In th celestial vault It. A. I
always measured toward the east from a
line from tho north celestial pol through
the first point tn the constellation of star
Arlea. In th sodlac, to the south celes
tial pole. In It. A. 1 hour equal 14 de
grees, or 80 degree divided by M.
Comet Kelsa passed Its psrlhsllon
nearest approach to the sun on June S3,
at great Inclination 141 degrees to th
plane ot the earth' orhlt In apace at a
dh.ta.nce of a.OOU.flOO mile.
Then came the comet-man. Astronomer
W. K. Urook of tieneva, N. Y., with hi

Why, h sod, I hnvo been on sum of tho

wonderful, ho sod to Pa. Travelers can
go a wonderful pace If they don't drink

Well, sett Pa. 1 auppoaa that Is purely
it matter of opinion. I suppose that you

me, sed l'a, 1 have known sum trevelero

grees; and at leust distance from the .
un. tho mean of two determination) ,
75,700 miles, on November 15, 1911.
It bus moved westward and southward
through a long arc of Its orbit. Tho
streamer wa about 13 degrees long; whll '
the nucleus- wa apparently as la.tgK.and
bright us that at Halley's cUrtiet.' Tho
luminous gases or fine cometary dust
expelled by the pressure ot radiant energy
from the aun projected In a fan-Ilk
shape. This form Is only to be seen In the -large
telescope. But the entire comet aa
a whole was Imposing to the unaided eye;
Next, July 31, Kncke'a regular three and"1
a half-yeur period comet wus detected tn
It computed place- It was discovered In
17M, and ha mad many return to Its-1
perl hoi Ion. Uut It ha failed to keep
time; and It Irregularities of time ot
passing as much aa two and a half hour
gave rise to much discussion regarding a
resisting medium In space. Question not
yet settled. Its distance at perihelion Is. :
ao.OOO.WJO miles, and on July Si was m
R. A. 7 hours U minutes, and N. North
20 degrees 65 minutes.
And then llorrelly's comet was detected,
at Its return on Peptember 19 In It. A. 3
hours 46 minutes, and I). Couth 32 degree
54 minutes. This Is the return or the sania
comet, and was discovered In 19K. It is
one of our family and very pmall, requlr-
Ins- a big telescope.
Astronomer Quenlsset. Ill Juvlny, Fiance,
discovered a, flno comet on September 13,
In II. A. It hours 13 minutes, and I).
North 75 degrees 4 minute. This has In
creased. In brilliancy, but Is not clearly
visible without lenses. It will pass its
perihelion at a distance of 72,000,000 miles
on November 15. The plane of Its orbit is .
greatly Inclined to that of the earth, or
lj degrees ifil minutes.
And Russia, not to lie outclassed, dis
covered a comet that Is.- Astronomer
Heljyawsky brought It to Hght on Sep
tember a In R. A. 10 houra 43 minutes. In
North l 8 degrees 16 minutes. Visible
without glasses. Nearest to aun. October

Seven comets since June. But they had
nothing to do with the war between Italy
and Turkey. replorablo as was is. that
war and more must Inevitably come until
the Turkish question Is permanently aet
tled. The appalling calamity at Austin.
Pa., happened because the dam guve way'
and not because seven comets were hi
