'asadena Nan Heads the
Comet Expedition to Hawaii
Chicago, Feb. 0. Ha lley's co
met, on which all eyes in the astro
nomical world are now centered, is
about 1,(KX),(XX) times as big as the
arth," is the statement of Prof.
Edwin H. Frost, director of the
Yerkes Observatory, at Williams
Hay, Wis., and continuing, liesays:
'Vet although the earth's gravity
may change the orbit 0 the comet,
the earth's path' through the sky
will be unaffected by the approach
ing proximity of the two bodies."
This supplements information
contained- in a circular respecting
observation of Ilalley's comet,
1910," which has just liccn issued
by the Astronomical and Astrophy-
sical Society of America.
The circular that an expedition to
observe and photograph Ilalley's
comet from the Hawaiian Islands is
to be sent out by the society, and
sot forth that :
In view of possible large ' pertu-
bations arising from the close ap
proach of the comet to Venus on
May 1 and to the earth on May 1G,
meridian observations are especially
desired during the period in which
the comet sufficiently bright for that

reply, that on these dates the co

mentioned to lie affected by their
Will that affect their orbits?"
It won't affect the orbit of Ve
nus or of the earth, but it is likely
to affect the comet's orbit. That's
one reason why we want to get mer
idian observations, which will show
almost exactly these orbitial changes.

spectacle, by the way, on May 1,
when tho comet ia near to Venus

practically the same distance from
the earth and everyone will lie able
to see their relative size."
'The Comet's bulk exceeds that
of Venus 1,000,000 times. It is not
solid matter, however. It is gaseous
and its mass is comparatively slight.
Therefore, its attraction will not af
fect the planets, while the solid,
heavy planets are likely to affect it
a good deal. The earth and Venus
are about the same size,- so that the
earth, too, is about one-millionth o
the size of the comet."
Frederick Kllcrmnn, of the Sola
Observatory at Pasadena, Cal., will
head the Hawaiian expedition.
Dwelling House and Family
Washington. 1). C. March 3,
191(1. The official definitions of
the terms "dwelling house'' and
"family'", with reference to the
population schedule to be carried
by the enumerators in the Thir
teenth t'niled States Census, be
ginning April loth next, are ex
plained in ibe Census Hureau's
lengthy printed instructions to the
canvassers. It is pointed out (hat
the answers should relate only to
conditions existing on Apr.il loth,
the "Census Day."
The words dwelling house" and
"family" are, for census purposes,
given a much wider application
than they have in ordinary speech.'
A "dwelling" is denned as a
place in which, at the time of the
census, one or more persons re
gularly sleep. It need not be a
house in the common meaning of
the word, but may be, for example,
a room in a factory, store, or office
building, a loft over a stable, a
canal boat, a tent, or a wigwam.
The tern also includes a hotel,
boarding or loading house, a tene
ment or apartment house, an in
stitution or school building, if per
sons regularly sleep there, as well
as the ordinary dwelling house.
A "family", as a census term,
may mean a group of individuals
who occupy jointly a dwelling
place or part of a dwelling place,
or an individual living alone in
any place of abode. All the occu
pants and employees of a hotel,' if
they regularly sleep there, make
up a single family, because they
occupy one dwelling place, and
persons living alone in cabins,
huts, or tents; persons occupying a
room or rooms in public buildings,
stores, warehouses, factories, or
stables; and persons sleeping on
river boats, canal boats, barges,
etc , if they have no other usual
place of abode, are regarded as
The enumerators are required to
enter on the schedule the name of
every person whose usual place of
abode on April 15, 1910, was with
the family or in the dwelling place
for which the enumeration is being
made. The head of the family is
to b9 entered first; then the wife;
next the children, whether sons or
daughters, in the order of their
ages; and lastly, all other persons
iving with the family, whether re-
ative, boarders lodgers, or ser
vants. The head of the family,
whether husband or father, widow
or unmarried person of either sex,
is to be designated by ' the word
'head;" and the other members of
a family as wife, father, mother,
son, daughter, grandson, daughter-
n-law, uncle, aunt, niece, boarder,
lodger, servant, etc., according to
the particular relationship which
the person bears to tne head of the
