Harris'. death, ttiat of collector had

Mrs. Brooks, this unaccustomed drudg

scouring of greasy pota and pans nnd
washing of dishes, which sho loathed;
this deprivation of comforts and luxu

but she never for that reason descend

households roako the mistake of doing.

while tho sweet bliss of their early

had done as much of the heavier work
of the' menage as he could to spare

Tears of disappointment followed the
realization of what the failure of, their
plans meant, for neither had doubted
that his request would be compiled

In tbo air on the strength of It. A few
dollars moro n week added to their
distressingly' small Income would have

BURNHAM SEES THE
COMET OF HALLEY
Observer With Telescope Picks Up
Wanderer, Which Is Pho
CHICAGO, September 17. For tho
first lluio lu seventy-four ycurs Hal-
ley's comet has been observed with
tuo naked ejc. The observation was
mudu by Piutessor S. W. uumhuiu
of the Yerkes' Observatory ut Luke
Uenuvu' on the Wcdncsduy aud
Thursday ulghts. Two photographic
negatives wero secured.
"The announcement of Professor
Burnhaui'u exploit was mado by Pro
lcouor Edwin B. Frost today.
"Professor Burnhatu wus the "rst
In America to see the comet with
tho naked eye, aided by a telescope'
ald Professor Frost today.
"We said nothing about seeing
the visitor Wednesday, even though
our photographic plates showed It,
because It wub partly obscured by a
small star and we could not be cer
tain. "Thursday morning about 3 o'clock
Professor Burnhuui ugain saw the
comet, and again the camera, mani
pulated by Oliver J. Lee, picked up
the. comet. This time there could
be no mistake.
'The plates, which were taken
with a two-foot reflector, showed the
comet as a faint, fuzzy path slightly
cjongatcd, In tho southeast. It Is
about flvo degrees distant from tho
star Qemlnorum, In tho predicted po
sition, so that there enn be no mis
take as tu tho correctness of our dis
covery. The position of the comet
wob accurately fixed with tho mltro
metre'. The pictures which we have
so far taken with the camera nro
too faint to be reproducible. In
fact, there never has been a photo
graph of Hiilley's comet which was
reproducible In a newspaper."
i Halley's comet, according to the
scientists, will be vlstblo to the nak
ed eye without ju telescope before
next Biirlng. The Blghtlng Is con
sidered a great feat by tho scien
tists. CHINESE MINISTER WHOSE
